Done.

I believe the questions were too vague, and I didn't know what organization you were talking about... until the end, when you asked where I worked.

I think questions could be more clear and objective. They were also repetitive sometimes... It took me some time to complete. Hope it works for you.

Unrealistic market cap = no room for growth.
Practical use = potential good investment
Active development = value being added
Positive community = no Charles Manson type cult that will consider criticism FUD that deserves instant chatroom culling. Coins that discuss issues in an adult type manner use the constructive criticism to improve the roadmap.


I agree with you about marketcap. That's the most important indicator.
A practical use is obviously a good indicator, but if the marketcap is too big, it's a potential bad investment, such as EOS.

Personally, I believe community support is useless. Successful companies doesn't need community support. What is Satander community support, for example?

Do you really need bounties and fake bots to shill a good project? That's most of what community support is about. Personally, I have participated in many ICOs. But I have never invested in a Ico that promoted a bounty, where they give away tokens to bots and spammers.

There are some top50 coins which barely do any marketing. Those are the ones I see as the most interesting projecta. Hype is not sustainable. And hype keep prices high, only to later on collapse

A quote I once heard (I don't remember from where): "There are infinite real numbers between 1 and 2. None of them are 3."

I immediately thought about positive amd negative infinities.

Like a Cartesian plane. You can have lines that tend to infinity in different directions.

What if I didn't saved or copied the sequence of numbers before enabling the 2FA in any account?

Is there a possible way to review it again? Cause I don't want to use Authy due to some possible hacking intrusion issues. Huh

Then, you cannot lose your phone.

You should copy the number sequence.

I believe that earning merit is like dedication yourself to the forum.

When I discovered this forum I already had some knowledge about cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
When I saw that owing an account here could prove to be very useful, and joining campaigns such as fortune jack and chipmixer was also very profitable, I decided to make an account here.

I learned a lot here. As xtraelv said, we are surrounded by legends.

People cry about merits , but thoss users seem never ask  themselves"how can I contribute to this forum?"

Users such as piggy and ddmrddmr contribute to the forum making merit analysis data (mostly). Other users contribute with their cryptography knowledge. I don't have any of those possibilities.

I discovered a way to be useful here, by just writing things that make sense. I discovered that I like to write .
Some other day a made a topic in ivory tower about a history book I read. That post received many merits.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4959810.0
Users can wrote anything here, and if its means anything, it will be merited.

Just think, what can you do well here? You can make political /economics analysis about your country situation.  You can write about books you read. You can write about anything. You can post a video in YouTube and post the link here, if you don't like to write.

Anything counts, and there are many merit sources eager to merit users.

Mas fiat não ter lastro é algo "recente", pois as moedas de outros tempos eram cunhadas em metais preciosos, tinham valor por si só, depois veio o papel conversível e hoje temos essa lambança que é só papel pintado mesmo, chancelado pelo estado.

Do Wikipedia

Quote

Moeda fiduciária é qualquer título não-conversível, ou seja, não é lastreado a nenhum metal (ouro, prata) e não tem nenhum valor intrínseco.[1][2] Seu valor advém da confiança que as pessoas têm em quem emitiu o título. A moeda fiduciária pode ser uma ordem de pagamento (cheques, por exemplo), títulos de crédito, dinheiro de papel, entre outros.



 A moeda fiduciária substituiu o padrão-ouro em todos os países do mundo, o catastrófico resultado foi hiperinflações ao redor do mundo[5] e o sistema de câmbio flutuante.

Alguns dos motivos são:
  • Falta de conhecimento sobre economia, a maioria das pessoas não sabe nada sobre, mesmo sobre pontos simples como inflação acumulada(o BRL perdeu 81% do seu valor de compra em 2016 em relação a sua data de criação, 1994¹), como o fato de que moedas fiduciárias não tem lastro(ano passado vimos muitos leigos batendo nessa tecla contra o BTC sem nem saber que o BRL não tem lastro), planejamento econômico, etc.

Na verdade uma inflação acumulada de 86% em 25 anos estadentro de limites bem razoáveis, e temos mecanismos de manter nosso poder de compra.
Por exemplo, a Selic acumulada desde 1995 foi de 373%
 http://idg.receita.fazenda.gov.br/orientacao/tributaria/pagamentos-e-parcelamentos/taxa-de-juros-selic
Você pode receber a Selic investindo no tesouro SELIC, gratuitamente , é mais seguro do q a poupança.

Ainda , vc esta certo sobre Fiat nao ter lastro. É do próprio conceito de moeda fiduciária (não ter lastro)

I just made those two posts on information about ethereum. I believe they fit here.

Vitalik Buterin likes to do interviews a lot. He has many interviews where he explains ethereum as a "world computer"

He really has many interviews
This is a classic:

Decentralizing Everything with Ethereum's Vitalik Buterin | Disrupt SF 2017

And this one, by Ethereum co founder Gavin wood
 Ethereum - The World's Computer" - Gavin Wood

I am reading mastering ethereum, which is a very good book by Antonopoulos.

I also made this post about ethereum fees;

Moved to Altcoin discussion yesterday to see if the topic gets more attention. Small bump
16  Other / Serious discussion / Re: Any useful guides on the ethereum blockchain? on: November 09, 2018, 04:15:53 PM
Thanks bitmover, that’s quite interesting. He looks a bit scared of the audience but they look like they’ll definitely be useful and are quite nice and short.

I agree, he definitely looks intimidated in that interview, as sometimes he  Shows difficulty in expressing himself.

 thats a very informative interview for people who wants to know more about ethereum, and the audience and the interviewer are very respectful to him. Definitely a good interview. I consider him a super genius. He knows a lot about different subjects, like economics
17  Other / Serious discussion / Re: Any useful guides on the ethereum blockchain? on: November 09, 2018, 03:45:04 PM
Thanks both of you.

I saw that thread yesterday but I do a lot of reading and I’d kind of like to listen/watch stuff as apposed to reading it...

I'm afraid Tether is the only viable choice despite being a shady and high risk coin. other alternatives are either shadier or they are too small so they lack liquidity and in some cases even stability.

I don't think they are shady.
Usdc is related to Goldman Sachs, which is more reliable than bitfinex's teher.

I believe that the more stable coins, the better. Diversification is key, as if one has any problem, the others are ok

It's quite confusing (since there are various changes), but AFAIK :
1. Mastercoin is rebranded as OMNI. You can check basic info at https://www.openmarketcap.com/tokens/omni or https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/omni/
2. OMNI is part of OmniLayer platform. The most popular usage was Tether/USDT and there's list of OmniLayer usage at https://www.omniexplorer.info/properties/production.
3. Most tasks are done on OMNI network, not on Bitcoin network. With 4-Layer internet model as analogy, Bitcoin is Network Layer while OMNI is Application Layer.

Thanks. I had no idea that it was Omni. Learning every day here.


It was created by dacoinminster. The whitepaper was titled The Second Bitcoin Whitepaper. He first created a topic with the idea. Then he announced that he would publish a paper and then he publish it.

He has proposed an ETF too in 2012. And AiCoin in 2013. and I think maybe we could use one like it for creating a rapidly evolving artificial intelligence..

He is one of BitcoinTalk Experts



Wow that was a complete answer
