1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Solana drop up to 5% on: Today at 01:26:01 PM
should i buy this time or invest in other Crypto? is Solana good investment?
The current market conditions have not provided an opportunity to invest in Solana, this will have an impact on the assets you have, you should invest in Ethereum and BNB first, when the initial bull run comes, then that's when you make a purchase on Solana, a habit that occurs both coins will experience a faster pumping for the altcoin class, the correlation is quite clear, that the reaction will have an impact on the next Solana
Why not? Is it because the drop is only 5 percent? Anyway, the current market we are in right now is bear and bear is an opportunity for anyone to invest. Also why would investing in solana has an impact on other assets that we have? Is it because solana is the one that will go up first and others will be left behind?

It's not a big deal IMO because eth and bnb are also a good coin and they will soon catch up once bull run returns. About the initial bull run you are saying. I think investing during that phase is not wise since coins are already recovering and there is no guarantee that the bull run will continue so you might only incur a loss.

snip~~~~~
LOL.... BBC has given the figure of around ~4,000 deaths for the Russian Armed Forces and PMC Wagner (DNR/LNR lost another 4,000 men, but these are Ukrainian citizens). On the other hand, more than 30,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed so far, and around 15,000 have been taken prisoner. Western media has been telling for a long time that Russia is running out of ammunition and cruise missiles. And now the Ukrainians are complaining that they are being out-shelled and cruise missiles are raining on their cities.
Well, we could talk about the finer details of numbers if you want, which is there and you decline it and that is your own "opinion" and sure go ahead and do that. But we could also talk about the reality, it has been over 3 months and Russia has failed to takeover Kyiv, which is proof enough that even though they are attacking with more manpower, more gunpowder, and more money, they are still not taking it, is that not enough for you?

This isn't even a pissing contest, you are saying that 30k Ukrainian soldiers are dead, and we all know Russia killed innocent bystanders as well, and you think that is fine? You are fine with that? My god you have no idea what you are saying do you? You are not aware that you are promoting death.

Bitcoin will never stabilized because itís not a stablecoin. It will keeps changing the price even on normal days or sideways because itís high volatility asset and most of its holder especially retail trader is just buying it for short term profit. The futures/perpetual trading too is one of the main reason why Bitcoin will never be stable because whale is playing it and having a huge profit by shaking all the liquidation of poor retail traders position.

This volatility will never stop unless it will be completely regulated even the centralized exchange that facilitating fraud trading from whales.
And even the stable coin themselves is not also stable sometimes but there are times where their value drops under a dollar although this cant last for a long time not unlike to a non stable coin crypto which can go up and down at a longer duration. A stable coin is still recommended to use for those who wants stability.

It's useful on certain occasions like if you want to save up or you want to have something in preparation for the bear market to be able to buy more coins. If let say regulation is the only way for btc and other cryptos to stabilize, I still don't think that most us will like it even if regulation do have other benefits because it already breaks their true purpose.

I don't think that the price of BTC has already reached its bottom and in the future the price of BTC will go down. I assume that at the end of 2021, the next cycle in the crypto market ended and now a new cycle has begun, which is equal to four years. If this is true, then an even deeper drop in the BTC price is ahead of us, but there will also be a slight increase. In simple words, the price of BTC will be volatile, but will generally tend to decrease. But as for the new growth and the flight to the moon, I think that it will coincide with the end of the problems in the world, which have now taken on an acute form. This is just my view of what is happening, but we will all see how it will actually be, but later.
How could we know that it didn't reach the bottom, it looks like the bottom has been reached and we will probably not do any worse than this if you ask me. Of course it "could" happen, I am not going to argue against that, but I just think that every time we talk about what is possible, we are mistaking the probable with possible.

Bitcoin "possibly" could reach 1 billion dollars as well, how? Well technically speaking it could, because mathematics says it can, but is it probable? Do you see it becoming 1 billion? No. Then this is the same thing, yes it is "possible" for it to reach a new low, but I think it will not go there at all, it's not probable at all.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: The Sandbox being acquired by Facebook (Meta)? on: June 29, 2022, 08:48:04 PM
I thought this isn't a rumor anymore since Sandbox has claimed that they will maintain a decentralized and open ecosystem[1] for people to thrive in. Plus, Borget says that they will defend their metaverse from Tech Giants including Facebook now Meta[2].
I still think that it won't happen, but at the same time money is money and if offered a ton of money then everyone can sell everything. Meta is a huge rich company and they have bought instagram and whatsapp for billions of dollars, if they offer billions of dollars to Sandbox as well then it would be exchanging ownership for sure.

However, the reason why I think it won't happen is not that facebook can't buy it, they can afford to convince and buy for sure. The reason why I believe it won't happen is the fact that facebook could build something much much better if they wanted to. Hell second life was a better version and I never liked sandbox. Hence why I believe if facebook wants something like that, they could build a much better version for sure.
But money is not everything. I am sure that there are some who will value their possessions more, than the money that is being offered to them no matter how big it was. They can still earn decent anyway since sandbox is still the leading metaverse/nft project up until this date though you're right.

Facebook has the money and they can use all that money to hire good developers to develop a project with the same concept and can be much better than what the sandbox is offering now. Also they won't have a problems with promotions since they can just use their own platform. Sandbox are going to be threatened heavily if that is going to happen.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Be careful buying alts right now on: June 29, 2022, 08:26:59 PM
To invest in crypto you have to choose a specific time and you have to choose the right token.
And that time is now wherein the market is bearish. Coins are cheaper compared to the price before. Though we cant say how long this bear market will last, but certainly its the time to buy top coins. Its way safer to buy top coins because they're unlikely to be delisted on exchanges and will recover if the market turn better. Its because this situation also happened before and these coins who are existing for years already, managed to survive the bear season.
Delisting is a serious problem and people who can't see that will end up with coins that will get delisted from top exchanges and they will think that what's going on is something regarding another bad news or something but in reality it is just the fact that volumes are dropping which means that there are less trades and that means exchanges do not make that much profit from the less traded ones and could delist those coins.

In return, there will be plenty of people who will lose money because things that gets delisted will get lower and lower, the less places a coin is listed, the more it will drop and eventually that would be a loss that could take years to recover, or may not even ever recover.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Crypto Airdrop Sharing on: June 28, 2022, 09:05:30 PM
Paying out, and making good money are two different things and I believe the difference is huge. Think about it this way, if we are talking about paying out, I could get 1 billion shrute bucks, if it worths zero then it will worth zero. This is why I believe that getting paid in the bounty or airdrop world means nothing. It means that you are doing absolutely the bare minimum by buying people to promote you and if projects do not do even that much, then its definitely sick and lazy scamming. Because of this, "does it worth it? is the real question, because it doesn't matter how much you get paid in tokens, but the value of it in dollars, if it worths it then it worths it.
Even in that case, people are so sick and tired of not getting paid after working hard that, even getting paid is a big deal for most cases. Even if you worked a lot for it, and made only 20 bucks, if ALL of them paid out, that would mean that you could find dozens of airdrops and bounties per month, maybe even 100 of them, that would make a huge huge income for people, you wouldn't need a salary at that point and could make a great return very easily.

This is why people are focusing on getting paid, and yes it is disgusting that some projects do not pay but that is the majority, they realize they didn't get enough attention and stop.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Grocery Stores In U.S Set To Install Bitcoin ATM on: June 28, 2022, 07:27:47 PM
It is great to see the Bitcoin ATM are installed on U.S . It has its advantages and also has disadvantages. The advantage of this is that it can be used to quickly convert Bitcoin into cash. But it will be a lot more expensive Bitcoin ATMs always charge high free.

It's still more convenient compared to withdrawal from crypto to banks. The existence of Bitcoin ATM is visible proof that Bitcoin is emerging in different areas. In most cases where we're having a hard time encashing our Bitcoins, these ATMs will provide convenience for us. I hope that more countries would consider installing Bitcoin ATMs. 
Some of the advantages of it are already posted by the OP but it would be better if he also include its disadvantages. It's like we are introducing btc and cryptos. We don't want others to feel surprised and complain later on. Take note that it's not only bitcoin atm's that will be installed but there's also shiba inu atm's along with it. It sounds crazy isn't it? That they keep on pushing this meme coin.

I thought that this meme coin is close to dying already but despite of it maybe this is a good alternative for those who want to save fees and don't want to use a bitcoin atm but id be glad if other much better altcoins are also going to become available.

yes I agree with you, there are many young talents in other national teams.  and this will be an event that we are very much looking forward to. 
speaking of messi, however he deserves attention with the skills he has.  he is a natural and brilliant player i am one of his fans as well as argentina, even though in 2014 messi couldn't bring his country to win at least being runner up is nothing to be ashamed of.  by the way I can't wait for every game of this world cup. 
I support two countries Germany and Argentina
For me apart from Germany and Argentina, Brazil is also my favorite but this time I have to admit that Brazil is not in a position to win the worldcup. More sad aspect of this worldcup is that its the last worldcup of Messi and Ronaldo, so we won't see them again.
Talk is going more heated as we are heading for next world cup which is going to play in November in this year in Qatar mean first time in the Middle East which is very interesting for world because it is very small country, and we already have too much negative news about this selection which mostly talked they have this hosting due to bribers which were offered to few persons but now all end, and we are starting to talk who is going to win because it is very interesting event with too many teams are favourite and few are having very skilled and quality players those are capable of changing things very drastically but right now peoples having own favourites and mostly loved Brazil, Argentina, Germany and France instead of favourite from Bookmakers.

If  I am not mistaken, it is only Zodiac who answers the tickets.

Even with a single super agent there was never a delay in tickets I've heard if the ticket is valid. Unless it is something that requires thorough investigation, there should be no delay. For other inquiries you could inquire with the moderators in the general chat.
It is basically because LL was cheap enough to see that his business is not doing well anymore since he is gone, decided to just leave it to one person so that he would not have to pay a lot, and then he put all the pressure on just a single person to take and expected things to be fine. If he is not aware of the chaos on this thread and he just ignores it, that should tell you all you need to know, what type of owner would be aware of the terrible direction their casino is going, and still would not care to fix it? If he is not aware of it, that is even worse because that means he doesn't care enough to be following up on his casinoís problems at all.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2022/23 on: June 27, 2022, 09:16:41 PM
Overall I never considered him a bad coach but when the context relates to Barcelona there is no denying that he failed there.
Koeman is a pretty good coach but not in La Liga and Barcelona because indeed some of his decisions at Barcelona are considered controversial and this makes him even worse in the eyes of the fans. But for achievements outside of clubs other than Barcelona, he is clearly a good coach.
Koeman did alright when he was there, the point is that he is not the coach that would have a good system with Barcelona, that's the problem. I mean think about it this way, if there is a better team than Barcelona and you could manage it better, but you would fail to manage Barcelona, that is not because you are a bad manager, that is because you are not a good fit, that's all.

And I believe that Xavi is a great fit, he is the "son of Barcelona" type of manager and he will do his best to lift that team higher. This doesn't make Koeman bad, it just makes him not fit for Barcelona, he could still manage another team and be great there. For example PSG could get him if they fail to get zidane? That could work.
12  Economy / Gambling / Re: Maverick Games 🚀 Join us while we build! Daily Airdrops🔥 Licensed & Regulated on: June 26, 2022, 08:56:49 PM
I have doubts with this and really apologize for ignorance, but in order to access this type of competitions, it is a need to have the amount to play, is that something that I understand, my question is, if they work with Airdrops, how are they presenting them? When they speak or the word airdrop is seen, it reminds me of the projects in 2017 and there were really Airdrops where a lot of money looked, the ooption that you apply here is similar to that of those times? or the airdrops refer to what?
That 2017 airdrop was something different that still has an impact on the crypto community. It is very unlikely that anything like that will happen. Now that they are running a promotion, it would be better to wait for their update. But it is also true that even if you think of something similar to 2017, it is very unlikely to happen.

On the other hand I am also interested to know about this airdrop, how it actually works.
Airdrop is some kind of a reward after doing some task. The only difference here is that you are required to play a certain game according to their post while I see that there are some airdrops that are surprised or they don't reveal if what game you will play before you will be able to get them. That's a genius idea as it makes players to try all of their games. Airdrops didn't die, they still exist but it's only the rewards that got lessened.

I am talking about the airdrops that we usually know, the one where you are required to do social media task like retweeting/sharing the projects post. For someone that loves airdrop and likes to play gambling at the same time then this site is for them.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Best Platform for Average Dollar Cost on: June 26, 2022, 08:30:30 PM
What is the best method for DCA Bitcoin? What platform are you using?

It must be cheap.
I advise you use a trusted platform, not necessarily the cheapest.
Some will recommend decentralized platforms like bisq or so, I have no experience with those.
But if you prefer centralized exchanges, you can DCA on those too, just make sure you don't withdraw too often (withdraw only after your buys have passed a certain threshold the withdrawal fee no longer hurts s much).
Security shouldn't be compromised by quantity. You think you can save and buy more in these xx platform but you can find out later on that you cant withdraw your funds anymore. You can lose more money than the fees that you are trying to avoid. Bisq is a popular one but this one is p2p right?

So, we still need to be careful if who we are dealing with. There are more famous centralized exchange but the only problem with them is they are in control of your funds. We will be storing our funds on them for a long time, if dca'ing is our strategy since we are only buying in smaller quantities and withdrawing them in an instant is not wise.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar - UEFA Qualifiers on: June 25, 2022, 08:55:03 PM
^^^ LOL.. Westerners are going to find this creepy as hell. Even if the couple is in a serious relationship for many years, they won't be allowed to stay in the same room. In the West (and now increasingly in Asia), it is very common for individuals to stay together without marrying. But doing so in Qatar will result in prison time. This edition of the world cup is going to be a disaster for the football fans. Hundreds of thousands of fans will be visiting and in all probability, thousands (if not tens of thousands) are going to land on the wrong side of the law.
Honestly? Arabs find it weird as well and they are just used to it and there is this "if I lived like this for all my life, let the younger generation live like that as well!!!!" mindset going around as well.

I worked in hotels for most of my life and I can tell you that Arabic people who are out of their nations live like however they want without a problem at all, they never try to impose their cultural stuff into your western nation, well maybe when they grow to be a big number that live there, but not as a tourist because tourists wants to do whatever they can. But when you go there, it is like that for you because that's how they keep the power. It's a disgusting political situation that could probably never be changed.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Polygon (MATIC) to $20? on: June 25, 2022, 04:09:21 PM
The market looks terrible and it is humbling all the top altcoins at the same time. This bearish market doesn't look good. We are most likely to have another set of top altcoins. I wouldn't be surprised if we find polygon falls below her current rank(21st). Her current price is not encouraging a bit($0.4cent).
It looks terrible, it looks not good, etc. You can say any negative things that you wanted to say but for us this market we are seeing right now is perfect. It is a gift that we are always looking for and now that it is luckily given to us, we know that to do next.

I know that once the bull run returns, you and many others are going to complain again about completely missing the opportunity but we know that it wasn't true. Anyway, a bear market isn't the main reason on why a coin fell down to its rank but it will only fell if there is a major problem like a bug on its software, something like that which can independently affect its price. This can also scare investors and won't buy the coin, making its value fall evenly.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Iím done with trash coins!! Looking for something promising on: June 25, 2022, 03:22:34 PM
Wait till we go deep into this bear cycle, new promising projects will come and you will be able to use the advantage of bear market to buy and hold them, I belief this is a perfect way of making better returns in a bull market.
What you said might be good to try, but the problem is it's hard to know when the bull market will arrive and some good projects won't appear in the current state because the team is always more difficult to develop projects in a better direction. Moreover, if there are several old projects that have died because they cannot survive in the current market conditions, surely the new project team must think of a different plan if they want to launch a new project at this time.
Just don't focus on the bull market but keep on accumulating more coins. The bull market can just come on its own once the bear had already enough of its time. Till now I don't know if what is the relation of the bear market for someone that tries to create a new project. Are the teams distracted and can't focus properly on the project that they are creating?

Well, if that is the case then they better refrain from building a project but what about before, when the market is in good condition, why there are still lots of bad projects coming out? What will be the explanation for that nut not all old projects are good enough, so it's not shocking if some of them dies.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Altcoin investments have become risky this day. on: June 24, 2022, 07:01:48 PM
It is indeed the best step to take when a bear market like now, collects coins that we consider potential, so when the market recovers we can generate very large profits. But the reality is that it is very difficult for us to do that, because there must be a fear factor the crypto market will fall even deeper, so it's not easy to buy coins during a bear market. It takes knowledge and good analytical skills to be able to do it.
What do you mean by "there must be a fear factor"? If you are feeling fearless right now, why will you still look for it when it's not going to benefit you in the first place but it will only make you discourage investing or it will encourage you to sell and leave this market because you are experiencing a fear.

It's actually very easy to buy coins in times like this since the prices of most coins are cheap but usually when the market condition is healthy, the only cheap coins that you will see are those who have a poor quality. Investing in older coins or top coins, does not need analysis but analysis are only needed if you are investing on newly released coins.

You cannot compare BCCI to any other boards. Every board is doing something good for its players and it's staff but what BCCI is doing is beyond the expectations and reach of other boards. You cannot ignore BCCI when you are discussing about cricket as they are to an extent controlling the ICC. None of the other cricket board have that kind of power or money at the moment.
Right now as situation is going in ICC and BCCI no one is comparing anything with India because they are financially very strong with big market and having their best tools in their hand for cashing this out but is this good every time you are talking about these points Indian Cricket Board is rich and having enough money. Even they have this all but still in facilities and many other ways they are not using this all for improvement of game and other things, mostly it's going into corruption and their own use, so please stop this all now and just talk about game and better things for others as well.

If we have very strong and balanced management at ICC then surely it's going to be good for all boards and cricket but sadly colonial mind set is never been good for this game.

Russians are unique. They have survived most of the wars. They will survive this war as well.
Putin has been judo learner since childhood - he only believes in military solution but one thing is for sure they are very aggressive and they do what they deem right.
It is a bit about "how" and not "if". I mean sure they did survived a lot of wars, they survived WWII as well, by losing millions and millions of people, a bit of a Pyrrhic victory wouldn't you say?

They had a "cold war" situation where they spent so much money that people were basically starving to death, just so that money would go towards fighting against USA without ever firing a single bullet to each other, meanwhile all through 60's and a bit of 70's, people in USA lived probably the best economical period. Right now as well, maybe the economy in grand scheme looks good, but look at how much people make monthly, you will see who loses in this war.

Many a gambling site is doing their business without posting their announcement thread on the forum and also not doing any marketing on the forum. And they are not facing any issue at the same way if the admin of this gambling site are offline from the forum then that will not affect their business too much if they still manage everything perfectly.
Exactly, people are misunderstanding an ANN (Announcement) thread,  as a customer service center. This casino has those features on the sites that you can utilized instead of clouding their Ann thread. These days it's even hard to get an information on this thread as that's their main purpose of created. Information here are supposed to be less of what is currently going and more of discussion on events, contests from the casinos to info the forum members.

That the admin is online or offline on the forum shoudn't affect your using of their platform. The forum isn't tired to their casino. If everything is working fine then we shouldn't raised unnecessary attention which might lead to fud. Understand that this a is a business official ANN thread and anything you say here might bring business or chase away potential customer.
Honestly that's not really that wrong, because there is no "customer service topic" here, plus they can't really reach out to anyone else in any other place, so that leaves them with two options 1) write here which is the one that makes the most sense and 2) write to twitter which would not be seen or cared about by enough people. So, that is why everyone writes here, that makes more sense and I understand it, that's logical.

Here you get to get your voice heard by so many gamblers and thanks to bitcointalk and this topic, we have learned that LL hasn't been caring about his websites so much anymore and without here I wouldn't know about it until it happened to me as well.
