1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Investing in anonymous cryptocurrencies on: June 03, 2019, 05:00:28 PM
Began to invest in inexpensive anonymous cryptocurrency: deeponion. I try to buy it while the price is quite low. But the question arises whether she will rise in price as a monero? Or maybe it is worth looking at other anonymous cryptocurrencies? Now the demand for anonymous cryptocurrency is growing, but why only for monero? I want to hear the opinion of every investor.
I used to do it as well, I invested into something called xspectre if I am not wrong, it has been a while since I took a look at it and I personally can tell you it doesn't really have that much difference from any other coin in terms of how it goes up and down. The one I invested was going down when the whole market went down and was going up when the whole market went up so the fact that it was a privacy coin had nothing to do with the coins price.

Of course, there is more chances to develop the coin because the more privacy oriented it becomes the more attention it can get from people looking for privacy and ever since I stopped checking out the coin they built even more stuff but after all of that the reality is that the coin itself wasn't that different from any other coin for a regular investor.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What particular project works on the totality of the blockchain ecosystem? on: June 03, 2019, 03:13:49 PM
I think the ones you mentioned plus NEO as well, I have zero NEO in my portfolio and I have never bought a single neo in my entire life so I can honestly testify that I am not shilling it. I am a hardcore ethereum person and I will continue to do so until I find something better.

However, keeping that in mind, I still think neo is doing a very good job rivaling ethereum in some aspects and a worthy rival, it is highly undervalued right now and there is a good potential to make profits because when NEO takes of as another ICO potential coin and makes their own ICO's known as much as ethereum then they will be worth a lot more thanks to their successful ICO's.

I also like dash a bit because they do have that great staking option but the masternode worth a lot more than I can afford so I can't really have any right now.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Which is better ICO, STO Or IEO ? on: June 03, 2019, 11:22:34 AM
What do you think, IEO better than ICO or STO or they are just the same with only difference in system?
I think project is a lot more important than how it is done. If you find a good project and it is run by someone very known in the world of crypto or even someone that is just a good business person and have a staff of great developers and marketers and designers etc etc then that project could be ICO or STO or IEO and it will still be good regardless of how they do the offering.

However, if there is a coin that is offering in any way or shape and sucks, the owners are idiots, the staff are very small in numbers and not great then it doesn't matter what type of offering it is. So in the long term a coin has only one offering option yet it will continue to exist years after that stage which means the offering is really unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Facebook plans to launch 'GlobalCoin' currency in 2020 on: June 03, 2019, 10:10:53 AM
They are just promoting the idea right now not the product. There is no detail about globalcoin at all, hell even the name could be changed eventually, however there is just one thing for certain, facebook is starting a crypto currency of their own. That information is legit and it will happen unless they cancel it, I mean that is still possible but aside from that they will definitely have a crypto currency.

How it will be used, what it will be used for, how many supply total, what the starting price will be all haven't been decided yet, as we get more information about it we will be able to give more opinions and healthier opinions however as long as we do not have any details all we say will be just assumptions. I hate facebook and how they run the company so I will say bad things but we still need to wait and see.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: What is the real value of bitcoin and cryptocurrency on: June 03, 2019, 09:20:29 AM
I think we can calculate it depending on the marketcap plus the orders, I mean if the price is around 9 thousand dollars right now and there are more buyers than sellers it means it will go higher so 9 thousand and more is a good value to give. I don't really know how to calculate somethings value unless I am given the cost of that, like if you want to give value to something like a phone what do you do?

You calculate all the materials and their costs, you calculate manufacturing and you calculate shipping, those are about the all things that is required and you make a ton of phones so you divide all costs to phones and you get one phones value, whatever the company puts on top of it is their branding and profits nothing else. Does bitcoin have something like that? Maybe miners could tell us what bitcoin worth? I am not entirely sure.
6  Economy / Economics / Re: Crypto to trigger a global bank run? on: June 03, 2019, 08:16:10 AM
Banks have their purposes. I know we here all hate banks and want to talk about how it is horrible that banks make money without producing anything and so forth but in the end banks do have their purposes as well. For example interests for people who have money is alright, because in the end not everyone would want to invest their money into a business or a real estate so they just collect interest.

Also, the loans for people who need it, it shouldn't be given to people who look like they can't pay but nowadays they are giving it to everyone and if they pay then it is okay if they can't bank just seizes their stuff, bank gets their moneys worth no matter what. So there are few other stuff as well like making the cash turn into debit card and so forth but they are abused, normally a bank could be something very decent.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: what happens if Bitcoin dies on: June 02, 2019, 07:04:02 AM
I know many people think bitcoin won't die and I think the same but if we are going to have a discussion about bitcoin dying that is still valid, its just a discussion, you do not have to say "bitcoin won't die", if bitcoin won't die then we do not need to discuss this at all but if you want to discuss this then you have to assume it will, even if you don't believe it just assume for just this instance.

I think it depends on how it dies, if it dies because some other crypto became better which I doubt will happen but if that happens then the market will not react that much, instead of bitcoin some other coin will be number one so its fine. However if it is dying like the whole crypto market is dying and everything is going to zero then we are screwed that is horrible.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Should invest in projects that participate in BinanceChain ecosystem? on: June 01, 2019, 03:16:41 PM
At the present time, the projects participating in BinanceChain are very well priced. For example, PHX (after joining BinanceChain changed its name to PHB) increased nearly 80% of the value in just 2 days. Next will be BCPT, GTO and ARN. Should we invest?
It is not a must, I mean not all coins that participate in binancechain ecosystem will be great, of course there will be great ones but that doesn't mean all of them will be. I think there will be good ones and there will be bad ones but looking at what would happen if you invested money into all of them I think you may profit from it.

The idea is the same with ICO during 2017 peak times, like you put in 100 dollars (money can change according to how much you have) and some of them will drop as low as 90 dollars which means losing 90% and that is bad but in the end if you have just one coin that x10 in 10 tries you will still be in profit. In my honest opinion it was harder to keep up with all coins and checking them out individually then just investing, its a lot of work and I think doesn't really worth it.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Is BNB the ETH of 2017? on: June 01, 2019, 02:27:49 PM
I hope not, eth got low after a while and we have not seen eth recover as much as we want it to recover ever since, it went as low as 80 dollars if I am not wrong and is way above that now but we want it to be above 1000 dollars at least which its not even close.

If bnb going to have the year eth will have I am really hoping it will not go down afterwards, I do not want to see bnb going above 100 dollar eventually only to go back down as little as less than 10 dollars, it is counterproductive, it makes some people lose money and not even try to buy bnb ever again, some eth investors are just looking to get out and not invest ever again, that feeling is something we can't afford with all coins we have, not bnb not any coin else. That is why I think it is highly important that we protect bnb from falling more importantly than help it go higher.
10  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin about to go really high on: June 01, 2019, 12:18:32 PM
Each time we go up and go down it means we are climbing a bit up and taking away from those levels for a bit, then we go back but next time we go up it is easier, so by going up and down multiple times and making sure the resistance points are eradicating a bit we are making sure the potential to break that resistance and go higher is possible. We didn't break the 9 thousand dollar levels today but I am sure we will break it next time, if we can't then we will break it on the next one, I don't care how many times it will take as long as we keep on trying we will eventually break it.

The question is are we spending the money we don't have right now, if we are spending all of our ammo breaking 9 thousand dollars then we might have a trouble afterwards on the next resistance.
11  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin about to go really high on: June 01, 2019, 09:20:42 AM
I think we are not at the same place, we are going to have a big run that is basically longer version but at higher prices.

Meaning bitcoin once reached 20k but one month before 20k it was 3-5k and one month after it was 8k or whatever. Which means bitcoin didn't stay high for too long. This time we may reach 20 thousand dollars but we are going to have a longer road there and a long road afterwards and then we will have a long road down if we go down, we are not going to just go up and down in a month and call it a day.

Even compared to previous peak we are already too late to hit the all time high when pace is compared, which means we are still doing fine but without pace. Let's wait and see what will happen, I am sure it will be 30k+ one day soon but I really think it will be by end of the summer.
12  Economy / Speculation / Re: The Next Bull Run on: June 01, 2019, 06:36:28 AM
We are IN the next big bull run, we have seen over 9 thousand dollars and I just hope that we will see it again, it wasn't that easy at that high so we had to drop and regroup but remember we tried to break 4200 multiple times before we actually beat it and that was a lot worse because there was a lot of sellers around those prices now we have a higher chance because we are at price where we can actually beat the 9 thousand dollar levels much more easily since there are not as much sellers out there.

Yeah, the price and the amount is still heavy because its 9 thousand dollars instead of 4.2 thousand dollars but its less number of people selling with less orders which is the important part.
13  Economy / Speculation / Re: Long term advance notice! on: May 31, 2019, 05:41:31 PM
Why are you guys so surprised that there are people who believe in Craig and his idea of BSV? I mean after all there are people who VOTE for dictators in this world, there are people who also murder and steal and rape so we can establish that there are both bad people on this earth and also gullible idiot people on this earth.

If that is clear enough well Craig has a leadership mentality, dude literally tries to grab as much attention as he can and in return some news websites and his twitter makes sure he gets that attention. Then he uses it to attract people to his idiotic idea and persona and the gullible are just idiot so they believe it and the bad people are just in it to make sure they profit from it as well. That is the whole ordeal and doesn't matter how much it increases in price it will never be accepted by the public.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Crypto to trigger a global bank run? on: May 31, 2019, 02:06:38 PM
Blockchain right now is helping rich more than it helps the poor. If you calculate the prices, when you want to send 1 dollar to someone it is highly impossible via bitcoin, maybe some altcoins could help you better but in the end how would that person go about spending it or cashing it out, so basically its impossible to send 1 dollar from one person to another using crypto and having cash in the end.

However, when you want to send 20 million dollars, blockchain is the best method there is, and that would help the rich people a lot, the amount is very little and cashing out is quite easy at that amount. So, as you see if rich people realize bitcoin is the real deal and they would be even richer if they used crypto instead of banks then wealthy money will go towards crypto instead of banks which will rapidly make crypto the standard instead of niche.
15  Economy / Economics / Re: bitcoin transactions costs in the future on: May 31, 2019, 06:00:43 AM
Even with clean energy the amount of work put into creating that energy will be still a lot. Nuclear is another topic which we do not like to talk but honestly it is such a power that just one plant could give you enough energy to cover most of the underdeveloped world, I do not remember where I read it but if we had like 200 nuclear plants all over the world then we could have enough energy to cover all energy need ever.

We can move to clean afterwards but nuclear is technically "clean" energy as long as nothing bad happens. The only reason why it is not like is the risk of leakage and something like Chernobyl to happen. With just one nuclear plant we can literally cover ALL bitcoin mining operation electricity requirements and then some (a lot more) which is why if we want free bitcoin transactions we should totally focus on nuclear plants.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: $10000 is just around the corner it seems. on: May 30, 2019, 06:19:19 AM
I know that everyone is expecting bitcoin to drop a bit before it goes up but I feel like that won't happen right now. Look at the market right now, there are more buyers than sellers, the amount of bitcoin is about the same right now and sometimes buyers get more and that is why we go up but the number of orders are still heavily to bitcoins side for going up.

Like to give an example when the bitcoin price is not going up right now there are people who are selling 1000 bitcoins and people buying 1000 bitcoins however there are 10000 people selling while there are 20000 people buying, which means there are more people thinking it will go up then people who think it will go down. That alone means we are still in bull run and that won't change anytime soon.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin is very likely going to break $9000 in the next few days. on: May 29, 2019, 05:34:28 PM
OP was quite right, he said it will happen in the next few days and we are almost there, in some exchanges it already happened too (the general pricing was at peak 8700 or so as far as I could see). That means this dude knows what he is talking about with the prices but for anyone that thought bitcoin would go up it meant anything close to 9 thousand dollars as well.

We were at around 8 thousand dollars and if you believed it would go down then you were plainly wrong and we went up but for people who believed we would go up where would you go from 8 thousand to up? It would have to be 9 thousand dollars so this was basically a topic about how "bitcoin would go up in next few days" since 9 thousand dollars was a given option, you can directly go above that without stopping at 9 thousand a bit.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Facebook plans to launch 'GlobalCoin' currency in 2020 on: May 29, 2019, 06:45:25 AM
We still have a lot of time before it all starts, I don't know how big facebook will get in the future, I don't know if its another google or amazon and what not, they do have the control of facebook/whatsapp/instagram right now but so far that feels like it is just some stuff that are unrivaled on their stuff and as soon as another competitor comes up they will be lost.

Facebook is no longer making THAT much money from facebook, its still something and its still big but its not on the momentum it used to be, however they made up from it on whatsapp and instagram purchase easily. If another chat application and a big huge social media app comes up then facebook may go south. In which case global coin will as well. Isn't it too risky to just invest into something that may in the future drop a lot in value?
19  Economy / Economics / Re: On stablecoins on: May 29, 2019, 03:24:35 AM
Even if it was 1 to 1 backed by the corporations that claims they are backed by real fiat (which some even came clear about not being 1 to 1 backed anymore so I don't know why they are worth like that) its still not the same with bitcoin. There is always risk of printing more, there is always risk of centralized issues of withdrawing money from the market, and the biggest threat of all there is always an issue of "lol gotcha" of the corporation that reeped the benefits of it and than leave as an exit scam.

Why would anyone prefer stablecoins over bitcoin I don't know, if you want to use regular fiat just use fiat anyway, there is no one stopping you to use dollars for example, that is what many people do, if you want to use bitcoin than use bitcoin but if you use tether for example that is neither as safe as bitcoin nor as accepted as dollars so whats the point.
20  Economy / Economics / Re: Belarus has launched a regulated bitcoin exchange on: May 29, 2019, 02:44:54 AM
This is exactly what the other countries should look at as an example. After all you have to actually make it legal and governmental to see how the tax works out and who buys and sells how much and when and see their profits and losses and how they should pay taxes on how much and so forth. If you do this like Belarus is planning (or currently doing) then you get yourself a crypto currency craze in a country that literally is watched over by the government and used for their advantage.

If a country just flat out bans crypto currency do you think it will stop all trades? No. It will just slow it down but people will find a way to get it anyway, so this way you are taking advantage of that popularity and you are using that to raise gains of the government via a new tax channel.
