41  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What should I do with a 1000$ and what would you do? on: September 18, 2019, 11:36:21 AM
My first thought was to put it in to Altcoins, Like

These would be my picks 100% Which coin would you leave out or add to that?

I was also thinking
Of Buying a Masternode and run it on a Vps, but I have 0 experience with that and I was looking for one and joined a few discords, and it was kinda a shitshow.
So I dont know how to look for good ones yet and it's a bigger risk then Altcoins in my opinion from what I have seen.
Does anybody have any experience with running a Masternode and how did that go for you?

A mining rig is probably to expensive, also the powercosts in my country are not that great so not really a option I think.

Create my own T-shirt Company
I know a Artist I could pay for a design or maybe even a collaboration where he could earn a % of the sales from the t-shirts.
Also have the fabric I want and all the idea's ready to go, this would probably be the most work, creating social media's, trying to get in retail stores, create a brand, and a lot more of course!

If you have any other ideas your welcome to add them, and let me know what you would do!
I will use $ 1000 to join IEO to make a profit in the short term. And after getting profit from IEO, I will buy altcoin and hold

It is best to never install any extension or application on your computer. Because your money can be stolen at any time, always be careful if you don't want to cry and regret
43  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ICOs vs IEOs? on: September 18, 2019, 11:23:15 AM
of course IEO This is the trend of 2019, for example, I will participate in IEO BTZC on VibraVid, I am waiting for growth from it
To be honest, it's a bullshit project. And you will never get a return on your investment in that project. Forget it and look for another better project
44  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: artificial intelligence can be dangerous on: September 04, 2019, 06:34:13 AM
If it was used by a bad guy, it would definitely be dangerous. It will seriously affect national security and people. But if we use AI properly, we will have a wonderful life
45  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Do you think 40% bonus is too much for early Investors? on: September 04, 2019, 06:06:01 AM
Too big for the rules. So I would not appreciate such a project. Bounty should only account for 0.5-2% of the total token. That is the most reasonable allocation
46  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Reason why only few projects became successful on: September 03, 2019, 04:50:39 AM
In my opinion, successful projects depend a lot on investors and marketing. If they have a lot of big investors, it will certainly be IEO at the major exchanges
47  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Are airdrops safe? on: September 03, 2019, 04:11:37 AM
It will be safe if the airdrop only requires wallet address and telegram. If the airdrop requires you to verify your KYC or private key then it is definitely not secure. And it is a scammer
48  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: How does a perfect Bounty Campaign looks like? on: September 03, 2019, 03:58:47 AM
A perfect bounty, is a payment bounty on time. In 2019 I have yet to see a truly perfect bounty, they all delayed payment

I am very much excited about tomorrow's match as punjab will try to win its 3rd game in a row and kkr will also give its best to win and bounce back in the tournament and I think kkr will get the advantage of home crowd but punjab has more chances of winning.
51  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Worst mistake in gambling on: April 12, 2017, 08:15:39 PM
Worst mistake that I did in gambling was even after winning a good sum of money I didn't stop to gamble and continue to gamble hoping that luck is in my favor and I can win more but lastly I lost whatever I have won and that was the learning experience for me.
52  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Do you feel shameful for being a gambler? on: April 12, 2017, 08:11:15 PM
Well not really I think there is nothing to be a shame of for being a gambler,
It was your choice and it was your money you played maybe you should be shameful if it was not your money.

Alot of people are actually ashamed when people know that they are gambling. Perhaps it is more of social condition where someone live. Depends on your country as well. When it comes to a country that is legal then it is not a problem if you are gambling however if it is not then it might be a problem for you
As long as you are not addicted and gambling is not influencing your life in a negative way there is nothing to worry about.
In some parts of our world there are places where women are told that exposing their hair will shame them, and is is cardinal sin.
So yeah, don't let others manipulate your feelings after all this world is a pretty fucked up place.

no matter if you live in a modern apartment housing or a big city.
all people tend to not socialize in this case, I don't feel there is a bad word from my neighbor, if there is, I wouldn't care about their lives, it is important to me to keep going forward, and also what I did was not a crime.

This case if your neighbors are all religious people and found out that you are a full time gambler.  But in most cases neighbor does not care.  It is your life and they have their own life and problems to take care too.  So there is no reason to feel ashame for being a gambler.  As long as we do not affect other people in negative way.

It does make a difference if you are living in a small town and everyone knows you personally and in that case if they come to know that you are a gambler then they will start talking negative things about you and will even boycott you from the society.
53  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Bitcoin Gambling Investments on: April 12, 2017, 08:09:25 PM
You can always invest anytime on those casinos. Most casinos have a minimum of 0.01btc for investing on their bankroll

I dont really think that 0.01 btc is something that is worth to invest. Sometimes there are thousand btc in one site so 0.01 is not really worth it. You could have better chance of getting profit if you just gamble that instead of throwing it away into investment, you wont get any profit because It is like less than 0.1 % of the bankroll

That's correct its very small investment to make and even if you make profits you will never feel the profits as it will be too low so if I have that amount to invest then I will prefer to directly gamble with that and who knows if I am lucky then I can make really big from it.
54  Economy / Economics / Re: Best way for steady income on: April 12, 2017, 08:07:11 PM
That's what I think too, having a real and stable job can give you a steady income because you are receiving your salary two times a month, weekly or etc. But if you really want to maximize your earnings, find other source of income like this online money making on your free time. Because not all the time we can do outdoor activities so when that time comes we can work at home.
you are right. I also have been trying to get a fixed income in an online business, but it was very difficult. possible to obtain a fixed income, we have to get a real job, so that makes us able to generate income. Well, I feel that online business is only used to get a huge profit, or used to supplement a fixed income that comes from a real job.

If you are talking about having an income from bitcoins then it will never give you a steady income as it will also depend on how much time you can spend online to earn bitcoins and what different methods you adopt to earn it as for most of us bitcoin is only an extra income.

Yes you must be having many methods to earn bitcoins but it will never give you a steady income as price keeps on fluctuating so your income will keep on moving higher or lower depending on the price of bitcoins.
55  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin can not replace fiat on: April 12, 2017, 08:04:48 PM
Bitcoin is not going to replace fiat for most people but without a doubt there may be some bitcoin users out there that are not using fiat anymore and are only using bitcoin right now.

I don't think that it is possible only to use bitcoins as to take care of our expenses in real world we need fiat and bitcoin cannot be used anywhere for buying anything so in that case we have convert our bitcoins to fiat currency so that we can use them for shopping.

I agree with Barts, there are people I guess too that aren't using fiat anymore but instead using bitcoin for paying everything they need, expenses for bills and shopping online with the use of bitcoin and with the help of exchange that they are using. But it doesn't mean that it will replace fiat generally, it is only applicable for them.

But there are very few people who are aware about the bitcoins yet and those who are using bitcoins will also prefer to use credit or debit card for shopping or fiat as their main intention is to save their bitcoins for the future without spending them at a moment.
56  Economy / Economics / Re: Tell me a secret: any way to earn 0.1 BTC per week? on: April 12, 2017, 08:02:32 PM
Its not easy to get 0.1 btc regularly either from trading as there will be days when you will be making loss in trading so there is no concrete or guaranteed method that can give you 0.1 btc on weekly basis.
57  Economy / Economics / Re: Which one is good, trading or investing? on: April 12, 2017, 08:00:41 PM
The good thing is you have money to earn money. It's really hard to earn money from nothing so at least you have a good start. Trading or Investing need some skills that if you have enough you will be success. Choose the one that you think you enjoy and fit it is better than ask someone else which one is better. Because these 2 things are different from others.
I donít think you really said anything there. Trading and investing yes are both good but the OP is wondering what he should do. I think that investing is the safest bet if he is willing to wait at least 10 years for the profit.

It is a much more reliable way to earn profit than trading. But if you want to get quick profit although possibly some loss at the beginning than I would go with trading. I am not really sure there is a site for trading though.

After waiting too long to make profits from investment if he finds that his investment failed in long run then he will be loosing all his money without any scope of recovery so best thing would be to have control on funds by putting them in trading and take actions accordingly.
58  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin or gold? on: April 12, 2017, 07:58:38 PM
My main preferences for gold over BTC is that I can hold gold in my hand, it is a physical item. BTC is 1's and 0's. You can't physically hold it in your hand. If your hard drive crashes and you don't have a backup of your wallet, your BTC is gone. Someone can hack an exchange and steal any BTC you have stored there (not the best idea anyway) and you will likely never recover it. Gold can not be destroyed. It can be stolen or lost, but never destroyed. Melt it down... it's still gold. Beat the hell out of it with a hammer... it's still gold. Drop it in a vat of acid... it's still gold

I certainly agree that gold has a lot of uses

And in some of these uses gold may well outperform Bitcoin, for example, as a store of value. But I can't possibly agree with your bias toward gold being indestructible. In fact, Bitcoin has a lot higher safety margin than gold in this respect. Yes, gold cannot be destroyed physically in the majority of cases that we might encounter in real life, though this doesn't in the least mean that it indestructible. You could dissolve it in some acids (mixtures of acids like aqua regia), it is very prone to wear and tear, you cannot make a copy of it, you cannot encrypt it. After all, it can just get stolen or confiscated. In this aspect, Bitcoin is by far more indestructible than gold. You print out a few copies of your paper wallet with encrypted keys on them and put them in a bank vault and your wall safe as well as save the encrypted keys in a file on a Google drive or elsewhere, and your bitcoins are protected from virtually anything that you could ever think of and which wouldn't render Bitcoin useless as such. And all this requires least amount of time and effort possible, you just need to know what to do

All good points as well. And I agree, gold obviously can not be encrypted as it is a physical object. But it can be stored in a safe or bank vault as well. As for being destroyed, no, acid does not actually destroy it. Gold can be "broken down" into a powdery form using aqua regia in order to remove impurities such as other metals and minerals, but put a torch to that powder and it melts and solidifies back into a beautiful, shiny yellow metal again when it cools

Regarding saving gold in a bank vault, this apparently contradicts your earlier claim that you prefer gold because "I can hold gold in my hand". So would you really trust a bank vault?

I don't believe I contradicted myself at all. I said that I like to hold gold in my hand. I didn't say that I wanted to put my gold in a bank vault. I was merely pointing out that it, just like what you said with a BTC paper wallet, can be saved there. So no, I don't trust banks at all. And that is exactly why I keep all of my PMs at my house.

But I think that keeping gold in bank vault is much safer then keeping at home as its bank's responsibility to keep your gold safe and if there is some robbery or theft in the bank then banks will help you out in recovering your gold which is not possible if it gets stolen from the house.
59  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin's price is so volatile right now! Why should I even hold? on: April 12, 2017, 07:56:25 PM
Volatility seem to be the reason people started using bitcoin anyway. From what I heard, some make a profit out of it. Sure the price changes are unpredictable but if you got it right you can make money.

Volatility matters to those that are looking to trade the price swings. If you're only interested in holding your coins for the long term, then you shouldn't care about the volatility at all. I was a pure holder more than a year ago, which at that time I absolutely didn't care about the volatility. Nowadays I do care about the volatility as there are some decent money making opportunities, and thus I have combined holding and trading to get best of both worlds.

That's right hold majority of them for future but try to invest few of them in trading which will give you regular profits in quick time and it will also grow the number of coins and holding is good only if you have huge volume of coins in your wallet.
Yeah, I'm doing like that my Bitcoin hold for future, But some of my Bitcoin I used to altcoin trading,
not trading bitcoin. Because the trading bitcoin is very slowly the price movements in the market,
in contrast to trading altcoin. Also the bitcoin Trading needed a large capital than trading altcoin.

Yes and to make profits from bitcoin trading you also need to wait for a long time and you also don't know whether price will go higher or lower in coming days but in altcoin you can make good profits even with a small capital and price pumps and dumps is very common in altcoin so you can make short term profits.
60  Economy / Economics / Re: Why do people keep saying BTC is dead?! on: April 12, 2017, 07:54:10 PM
I don't know too that people keep saying that bitcoin is dead. that there is no good reason that bitcoin would be dead. In my own opinion maybe people are just playing joke with us that they keep saying BTC is dead.
i think these are the people who just want the price to fell down and they find an opportunity to buy bitcoin in a low price. but i do not think that now people can be trapped as they have become mature and they are not going for panic selling.

Exactly the days are gone when people used to get panic so quickly and start to sell their coins at low price and big whales used to take advantage by buying at the cheaper price as now people are well aware that price ups and downs is a common practice in bitcoins.
