Frenkie de Jong stays! Barcelona set to offer a new contract for Dutch midfielder:[1]
Frenkie de Jong, who was targeted by Manchester United in several transfer windows, is now close to renewing his contract with Barcelona. Barcelona are set to extend Frenkie De Jong's contract by two more years, as he is being considered the 'cornerstone' of Xavi's project. Sporting director Deco has reportedly initiated talks with De Jong to extend his contract to 2028.
Now the Dutch midfielder has become one of the highest paid in the team. Moreover, this is a very good act from Barcelona to secure Frenki De Jong's future by renewing his contract because he is one of the key players for their new boss, Xavi.

I personally think that Frenkie de Jong is a very important player for Barcelona. And he needs to stay in Barcelona if Barcelona actually wants to perform well. Right now the squad of Barcelona is not the best. And Barcelona cannot afford to let these kind of players go. he is definitely one of the players who are actually holding the midfield of Barcelona in place. Raphinha just got injured. Even though I am not sure how serious the injury is, it was certainly something that Barcelona didnít wish for. So right now, Barcelona will need the other players to step up.

Anyway, I think Barcelona should actually think about giving the players a little less money. That is definitely going to be helpful for them when it comes to the finances.

If we talk about market centralization, I think it is inevitable because most altcoin projects are centralized and have a leader. So, the government, SEC or any agency can easily regulate and control all of them. But I just hope, we will always be able to keep bitcoin as decentralized as possible and we only need bitcoin, we don't need other altcoins. As long as people never store their bitcoins on centralized platforms, no one can make bitcoin centralized.

As for bitcoin hitting $100k, I'm pretty confident that we're closer than ever. I mean, with or without an ETF, btc will still hit a new ATH in the next bull season.

Altcoin projects have a leader because they want to look as legitimate as possible under the eyes of mainstream investors and traders alike. A coin with unknown developers and founder would be flagged by said entities as a "scam". The only exception is Bitcoin because it was the first cryptocurrency that started this craze.

Staying on topic, I believe it'll be easy enough for BTC to reach $100k after the halving. Especially when many large investment companies are buying Bitcoin like crazy (particularly MicroStrategy). Even El Salvador is filling its bags with BTC. All of this shows us that demand is rising at a very fast pace. The SEC would have no choice but to approve the Bitcoin spot ETF in the long run. Such a move would attract serious investors into the crypto market. No one knows when this will happen, so lets hope for the best. Just my opinion Smiley

Speaking a bit about ETFs, did you follow Gary's recent hearing before the US House of Representatives? In the hearing was a congressman named Tom Emmer, who told Gary that the SEC had no power to block financial innovation and a lot of congressional pressure questions for Gary. So, as I also said before, SEC approval will only be a matter of time, they have no other choice. But honestly, I don't think any ETFs will get approved this year, I predict it will coincide with bull season. And that will be another catalyst for us to have a super bullish cycle.

I haven't watched it yet but I am quite confident that the US representative has urged Gary Gensler for openness several times for their openness of crypto currency, but still Gary is stubborn with his stance to bother Bitcoin, for this year there will be no Bitcoin ETF that is approved, seen From the maintenance time for ETF Bitcoin until at the end of Q1 2024, so we will see these decisions until that time and I am quite confident that Bitcoin ETF will be approved, if Gary still holds this, I just believe that she will be fired forced From its position in SEC.

Regarding the price, I do not have price expectations when the approval is completed to reach 100K is most likely above $ 50K and below $ 100K for Bitcoin prices when everything happens.

Speaking of firings, I remember during the House hearing, House Financial Services Committee Chairman: Patrick Mchenry also warned Gary that if he did not comply with congressional oversight, he would become chairman the SEC first received a subpoena from Congress. Or Congressman Davidson's statement that if the bill to stabilize the SEC is passed, he will soon be fired. Overall, there are many people in Congress who disagree with Gary's decisions regarding the cryptocurrency market. His dismissal could become a reality if he continues to stubbornly disobey parliament.

Regarding the impact of the ETF on bitcoin, as I said, I think it will be passed to coincide with bull season so it will also be a strong catalyst for bitcoin. We will see bitcoin price skyrocket even to $200k, IMO.

I don't want to make things difficult for myself, I save my seeds in 1 flash disk and 1 special book because I'm the type of person who is forgetful so I think a flash disk in a book is the right place to store my seeds.
I don't trust flash drives, hard drives, or any external storage device of that nature because they can get damaged and the files inside will corrupt, including your seed phrase and other valuable documents you saved in there, but saving in a flash will be a bit better than leaving it online in an email or so because anything connected to the internet is very risky and can easily get hacked.

Writing your seed phrase down in a special book is more secure and preferable than using an external flash drive because it will be there and will not corrupt, but if someone has access to it, your coin is gone, because unlike flash drives, you cannot put a password in a book unless you use some encrypted words that only you can interpret, and you can also duplicate the papers because of natural disasters like fire outbreaks, water, and so on.

If you write the seed phrase in a special book and are afraid other people can access it, you can use tricks like changing 1 or 2 positions of the words. That way, even if someone steals your phrase, they can't access your wallet. (You just need to change the position of the two words, no need to change too much to confuse yourself).

Also, I think we should have a better storage device than paper because paper is very perishable, as you said. Small sized steel plates as mentioned by Crypt0Gore are a better solution than paper.
Maybe if you have a risk that the seed phrase written on a special book might be stolen, then you should lead ill-wishers down the wrong path? Create a fake phrase and leave it where thieves can easily see or find it.

I would not store the real seed phrase where it could be easily found by people, outsiders and strangers alike. I mean, there is no need to keep seed phrase on the coffee table or under the computer mouse pad.

You're right, maybe I was too nervous thinking that someone might find my seed phrase while I had it stored in what I thought was the safest place. So changing the position of some words is redundant and will cause more trouble for me than for the thief.

Regarding changing the position of some words in a phrase, the main thing is not to forget where and how the phrases will be replaced. Therefore, it is better to leave some keys for yourself so that you can decipher this trick. Memory is not a permanent thing and can distort data. It's foolish to rely on that only when your savings are at stake.

The choice of paper or metal as a method of storing phrases has already been discussed many times. Anyone can carve a seed phrase even on wood or plastic, this is an individual choice and risks.
I remember there was a thread about memorizing the seed phrase by reading it every day instead of storing it by other methods, and I was a strong opponent of that idea. So when I change the position of those words, of course, I have my own tricks to suggest, I don't completely rely on my memory to do it. If I just rely on my memory, it's no different than memorizing the seed phrase. But I will reconsider my method because you are right, I kept it in a safe place where no one can find it but me.

That way, even if someone steals your phrase, they can't access your wallet. (You just need to change the position of the two words, no need to change too much to confuse yourself).
Backup your wallet seed as most simplest as possible but make sure you store your backup safely and avoid eyes of other people.

Don't try to trick others and consequently trap yourself with a risky backup method. Changing positions of 1, 2 or 3 words in your wallet seed is a terrible idea. You will need to remember it, need to have a note for these positions but if you lose those position order by a memory loss, note loss, you will need luckiness to recover your wallet seed.

How to back up a seed phrase
Yeah, you can care about it on the long term and if you are careful about it then you are going to end up with something much better. Simple stuff like writing it down to your notebook would be simple but effective for many cases.

People talk about things like "what if there is a big fire, what if there is an earthquake" and so forth, well if you want it so much then put it on an exchange and as long as you memorize the mail and password you use, you can login from anywhere in the world, of course have access to your mail as well. But if you want more security, then ignore the one in a million chance of fire burning down all of your house, and just go write it down to your notebook and be fine.

You're right, everything has pros and cons, nothing is absolutely safe. If we keep making thousands of hypotheses and thousands of reasons, we will never find the final solution for ourselves. Maybe one person's method is not suitable for another, but as long as it brings them safety, there is no reason for them to change or imitate others. My method may have risks that others consider inappropriate but for me it's been fine so far. And there is no guarantee that if we follow their method, our seed phrase will remain safe.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2023/24 on: September 28, 2023, 08:02:36 PM
From the Real Madrid team, I am really surprised by the performance of the Barcelona team. Currently in some matches Barcelona team is behind in the first half and also in the second half but they are able to either draw or win the match in the last minute. This thing will bring great things to the Barcelona team. Coach Xavi really has to be praised for the amazing Barcelona team he has developed.

Xavi is doing a very good job with Barcelona. He has been able to put a very strong fighting spirit in his players. They always want to win no matter how difficult the situation might be. I wonder why some people still look down on the work he has done. They may not play the way peak Barcelona play but they don't play baldy. They're very compact and discipline.

You have to applaud the new management for all they've done. They have very limited funds yet they've managed to bring in very good players in every position of the squad.
I feel Barcelona will win the league this season. Madrid are struggling with injuries and are not really in sync despite winning most games so far.
It's going to be an interesting season ahead.
Let's see how the weekend turn out after Girona plays Madrid and Barcelona take on Sevilla.

Not gonna lie, I am a little surprised to see Barcelona not being able to win the last match against Mallorca. I believe Barcelona was doing very well and they definitely should have been able to win this match. Especially when Barcelona is trying to defend the La Liga title. They do not have a good financial situation and they cannot invest in the team right now as much as they want, I understand that. But that is also the reason why they should be winning these matches. Because it is definitely going to be hard to win matches against the likes of Real Madrid. so Barcelona should not be missing out on any chances of getting three points. Barcelona has definitely been able to do very well. Especially under the current situation which they are in.

But I don't think it is going to be a crime to ask for better performance from them.

Exactly, if they accept ETFs, it will add credibility to bitcoin and people will rush to invest and use bitcoin, and will abandon fiat currencies or government bonds. I think that's what the SEC and the government are thinking about so they don't want to accept ETFs too quickly. I guess they will continue to find ridiculous reasons to find ways to delay the ETF as long as possible in order to find a solution to reduce losses on government bonds and fiat currencies once bitcoin ETF is approved.
Many are expecting ETFs to be approved in October but I believe they will all be delayed until next year.

Choosing a decentralized cryptocurrency over Fiat is something no government wants. I think the US government will end up tightening regulations for the crypto industry to prevent such scenario from happening in the future. The spot ETFs will continue to be delayed until the SEC feels "it's safe enough" to give the "green light". By the time a spot Bitcoin ETF is approved, the industry will be regulated "down to the bone". This shouldn't be a major cause of concern, especially if we want Bitcoin (or crypto in general) to be legitimized.

I'm certain market prices will rise to $100k sooner than later. But don't expect things to get better when centralization is still the "driving force" of the market. Who knows what the future holds for the cryptocurrency? Just my opinion Smiley

If we talk about market centralization, I think it is inevitable because most altcoin projects are centralized and have a leader. So, the government, SEC or any agency can easily regulate and control all of them.

I'm hunting a penalty for either team in Lazio - Torino as both teams are looking sloppy and the odds where pretty good.

I also had the same bet but for Atalanta game and man , I was close for Verona to get a penalty but the guy didn't fell off and tried to keep the ball so all my hopes are on Lazio or Torino to have a penalty

Halftime break will end soon, the deadlock has not been broken in this match so far. Both of the teams have been performing pretty well and balanced so far in this match. We cannot say that one team is way ahead or has performed better compared to the other clearly in this match. I wonder if the deadlock is actually going to be broken in this match. Both of them have not done very well when it comes to performing in the final third of the pitch. so I am not sure about how this match is going to end. But there is definitely a possibility of a draw.

I believe hosting some part of T-20 WC in the USA will give some reality check to ICC and broadcasters. ATM they are planning to host the biggest premier match of Ind vs Pak there.

Pro - It'll be a superhit in terms of gate money.

Cons - The Timezone is not suitable for the Indian prime time slot unless they start a match in the morning like 8-10 am. Also, the Stadium is in work in progress.

I believe that they will start the match at around 9am in Florida, which would mean that in India, the matches will start by 7:30pm. Even if they delay it by 1 hour, it will still stay in prime time. So I am not worried by that much about the match timings. AFAIK, the match between India and Pakistan will be played at the Central Broward Park in Lauderhill. On the other hand, if the match is scheduled at the Grand Prairie Stadium, then it is going to be an issue. The third venue (Eisenhower Park Stadium in East Meadow) is also in the same time zone as Florida.

I hope they will be able to manage their time perfectly. Otherwise, the viewership is definitely going to go down a lot.

By the way, what do you guys think about the attendance in the stadium in the USA? Do you guys think that attendance is going to be low just because the World Cup is going to be played in USA? I donít think that half of the stadium is going to be empty. But there are certainly going to be some empty seats in my opinion.

After all, I do not think USA is really interested in cricket, to be honest. I also think that most of the time the stadium is going to be filled with people from the subcontinent and from other countries who are actually interested in cricket.

I mean you didn't say what you said in the right place if you went to the market place and said the words you would have got what you expected very soon here we are talking about bitcoin not about any project please you understand my point.

There are many spammers on the forum and you cannot stop them from spamming even on your topic. What you should do is ignore the spam and focus on the discussions within your topic. You are new to the forum, you need to get used to this and many things will surprise you even more.

Back to your topic, it's good that you have a good start on easily making profits from bitcoin trading. But things are not always so lucky and easy. To really be able to make a profit and survive in the market, you need to learn and accumulate more experience. Don't rush to be happy and subjective when you make a profit for the first time, there are still many things waiting for you ahead.

I don't get why the SEC keeps delaying ETFs, when companies are doing everything they can to comply with regulations. There may be hidden intentions behind such a decision. Maybe it's because the SEC hates Bitcoin (and crypto in general) so much? We can see how SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has been treating crypto exchanges with an "iron fist" lately. If he gets replaced, it's likely the US regulatory agency will give the "green light" for a spot ETF. There are so many investors who want to get into the action.

As it's said in the real world, "money talks". I think the SEC will eventually approve spot ETFs for Bitcoin because of its ever-rising popularity. Once that happens, market prices will be a lot higher than what they are right now. $100k may just be the "tip of the iceberg" as the best is yet to come. Who knows how close we are towards a new ATH? Just my thoughts Grin
They probably know ETFs are coming as there is no way this is not going to happen at some point on the future, but they want to delay it as much as possible until they feel they have enough control over this market, this is why they are going so strongly against exchanges now, and why most likely they will go against stable coins with the same intensity soon, also it seems to me they are worried the price of bitcoin may go up at such a fast speed, as bitcoin is considered to be a form of money opposite to fiat currencies, and if bitcoin becomes so expensive so fast this will bring down the image of fiat currencies even further.

Exactly, if they accept ETFs, it will add credibility to bitcoin and people will rush to invest and use bitcoin, and will abandon fiat currencies or government bonds. I think that's what the SEC and the government are thinking about so they don't want to accept ETFs too quickly. I guess they will continue to find ridiculous reasons to find ways to delay the ETF as long as possible in order to find a solution to reduce losses on government bonds and fiat currencies once bitcoin ETF is approved.

I think in terms of quality, it is going to be a decent trade. Donoma is a great goalkeeper. And I can also say the same about Maignan. It is true that PSG got him for free. But he is definitely a good goalkeeper. I know it might look like Milan is going to be the losing party in this trade, but I don't think it should be a big problem for anyone to pay for a player who is performing well. But of course, they cannot just spend money like there is no tomorrow. But at the same time, I do not think PSG is going to add anything to this trade.
Donnarumma performance was not quite up to PSG's expectations if we compared when he was still playing at AC Milan so that's why this rumour appears because PSG doesn't want to hold him anymore and why PSG want Maignan because before playing at Milan Maignan is from PSG academy so that's why PSG think if they swaped Donnarumma to Maignan is good transfer because just like i said before Maignan is already know the atmosphere of PSG team so he might be will not required long time to adapt but i think most likely this swap won't be happend because AC Milan doesn't interested to Donnarumma anymore and the most important why this transfer have potention to failed is Milan fans were feel dissapoint when Donnarumma decide moved to PSG so that's why the fans considers him as a traitor

Donnarumma has not been performing at his best. Currently, as you said that definitely is going to discourage any club from taking him. There is no way this trade should happen if we think about the current form. The quality of both players can be the same. But the form is definitely different for both of them right now. I do not think Donnarumma has the same kind of capability right now, as a goalkeeper when compared to Maignan. It is definitely going to be a bad trade for Milan. I hope they are not going to do that trade at all. But I believe if PSG actually adds some money, you actually never know. Probably it might end up happening. But so far, I do not see any true interest from Milan, to be honest.

The crypto bear market is far from over. Although the Bitcoin price is consolidated between $25k and $27k, one can not surely predict that the market is ready to pump. I think the market correction is not over yet, and the chances are that we might see a dip below $20k before the bull takes over. We might see some fake-out rallies in the coming months to attract more retail investors. Chances are that the market will pump once the BTC halving is over.

Agreed, the bear market is far from over and I also predict that bitcoin will have more corrections before and after the halving. But the prediction of bitcoin falling below $20k is a very low prediction, and if that happens, it will cause more serious panic than we think. Personally, I just predict bitcoin could fall to $22k-$23k and will consolidate there for a long time until the bull season comes and takes over.

I have also seen some predictions that there will be fake-out rallies to continue siphoning liquidity from the weak hands in the market but I am not sure about that.

Several media say that PSG is currently trying to bring in Maignan from AC Milan. The rumor is, PSG will try to swap Donnarumma with Maignan. There is no additional value information for this swap yet. PSG already got Donnarumma for free, if Milan pays, or PSG gets Maignan without additional money, the one who loses is AC Milan. Because PSG get Donnarumma with free, but back to Milan, but Milan need to pay for him. Please don't be the next MU, when juventus get a lot of profit from Pogba  Cheesy
Donnarumma to be swapped with Maignan?
It is known that Donnarumma went to PSG because he was ridiculed a lot in the past for not being loyal to AC Milan, how he came again may not be trusted and will lose mentally for Donnarumma.
The PSG club is like that when there is a rising player like Maignan The Ac Milan goalkeeper is immediately interested like there is no other talent for PSG. LOL
Some sources say that Milan does not want to exchange with his former goalkeeper first, but if PSG wants to buy then AC Milan can let him go but still Donnarumma must be eliminated first if he wants to get Maignan.

I think in terms of quality, it is going to be a decent trade. Donoma is a great goalkeeper. And I can also say the same about Maignan. It is true that PSG got him for free. But he is definitely a good goalkeeper. I know it might look like Milan is going to be the losing party in this trade, but I don't think it should be a big problem for anyone to pay for a player who is performing well.

Don't you think Asia Cup was really enough to tell you that Bangladesh team isn't really a team which can compete with the major teams. In the last 3 world cups I was always hopeful that Bangladesh has the capability of reaching the Semis but honestly Cannot say this in this very world cup.

The situation in Bangladesh is definitely not good right now. so it is hard to say if they will actually be able to do well in the World Cup. honestly, I do not have much hope of Bangladesh doing well in the World Cup. because the team is currently not balanced at all. Honestly, the Bangladesh team was never actually balanced. I think so far only the 2015 World Cup squad of Bangladesh was balanced. at in every other World Cup Bangladesh did not have a good squad. and this time this is also the same old story again. We can already see a lot of problems in the squad. A lot of ego games going on in the squad as well.

If Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad were not present in today's match, I don't know how shamefully Bangladesh would have been defeated. I have nothing to say about this match of Bangladesh against New Zealand.
Bangladesh cricket team performances keep going down the drain over time. They were unlucky in the last match actually thanks to rain interference since it looked like they would win that match.

Am not expecting them to go far in the World Cup thanks to their horrendous form these days.
Bangladesh's top order batsmen failed miserably with only Tamim Iqbal scoring 44 and Mahmudullah Riyad scoring 49. However, New Zealand could not bat properly due to rain and were bowled out for 254 runs before playing a full over in their innings. There was a golden opportunity for Bangladesh but due to poor performance Bangladesh were bowled out for just 168 runs. New Zealand's reference spinner Ish Sodhi picked up 6 wickets and destroyed Bangladesh's batting line-up to be bowled out for just 168 runs.

This was just a sorry looking card for Bangladesh. And I am actually not going to call this a big target. Because this was definitely achievable. The problem is Bangladesh batsmen got out playing some dumb strokes.

Liton Das got out in a way that is really dumb. As the captain of Bangladesh cricket team, he should have known better.

At the same time I can name a few that actually got out in a pretty bad way.

Just look at the wicket of Mahmudullah, the ball was really bad. That should have been at least a boundary.
Also, look at the ball in which Tanzid got out, he played a bad shot.
And I am not even going to talk about Soumya. I don't know how he is even getting chances. he can only play well against weaker opponents, just like Sabbir Rahman.
And at the same time, Tami Iqbal also got out in a very bad way. It's absolutely the fault of Bangladesh that they lost this match.

Of course 95% of memecoin are scams now and the ones that are still alive are floating in the sea because they planned that in a bull market investors of their project would increase. Also you will find some good memecoin that entered the crypto market a long time ago and their investment community is very strong now so if you like memecoin then invest in those older meme coin.
Also i think it's risky for new investors to invest whether it's memecoin or any other new coin. It is very tempting for new investors to come in because they will just jump at the profit.
On the other hand the reputation of crypto investment is alive because there are many ways and types of investment so it is not only dependent on memecoin.

Memecoins like dogecoin are safe, I even find it safer than other top altcoins, and we can invest in it, but whether it will bring high profits is unpredictable. But people will not invest in old meme projects or other top projects because they think their prices are already too high and they will flock to new memes in search of higher profits. But most of them are just scams and they will lose money because 99% of projects are scams, not 95%.

If we talk about fraud in the market, besides bitcoin, most of them are scam projects, even leading projects like Luna can collapse. So, we cannot completely blame memecoins projects for tarnishing the reputation of the cryptocurrency industry.

This would apply to those trends that gone short-lived but I think Dogecoin will not die down that easily, it's one of the true decentralized coin that still exist today alongside with Bitcoin. For a trader perspective his conviction could be mocked but for those investors alike that thinks long term I'm sure he would be hailed as a legend. It's all about perspective and I think he knows the risks involved. Just my two cents.

I agree with you, we used to ridicule Dogecoin as a shitcoin, a farce, without value, but what it has achieved today is something we cannot deny. I believe that it will even survive and grow even without Elon because it has existed for a long time and always had a strong community supporting it before Elon used it as a tool to hype. Honestly, if we compare the safety level except bitcoin and ethereum, I even believe that Doge will be safer than BNB, XRP or any other altcoin.

We don't know how much hype it will get in the next bull season but it will never die even if Elon stops toying with it.

This will really be a match to look forward to. We might also be curious about what Tottenham's front line will be like without Kane against big clubs, especially Arsenal. However, so far, Tottenham have still been able to play very well and consistently. They have never lost before, only drawing once against Brentford.
But on the other hand, they were able to win 2-0 without a goal in return against Man United. However, this cannot be compared between Man United and Arsenal. Arsenal this season is much better and stronger than Man United. And because of this, of course when competing against Tottenham, Arsenal is not an enemy that is easy to beat. But on the other hand, Tottenham too. So here it will really depend on how they maximize all the chances they have when competing. Arsenal definitely has the advantage of playing at home. So, at least Arsenal can also optimize this advantage.

Arsenal made a good team this season with Arteta, they are in the good for mad they also hired many high-quality palyer which can help this team to get better results in this season.
But Jamie Carragher the former palter of Liverpool thinks they won't achieve the title in this season because of the goalkeepers they have,  Aaron Ramsdale is the second option for Arsenal and he can't be a good alternative for this team.


Not that he is kept on the bench to be a bench warmer,the reason Arteta bought Raya is for them to accept the competition thats in the team now,almost all the positions in the team have aternatives,and that is exactly what Arteta was looking at.I cannot say Raya is better than Ramsdale because I know how good Ramsdale is.He was one of the best keepers last season in England,including Europe,he also made some incredible saves last season that one can actually norminate as as one of the best saves of the season,but later in the season,he didn't put much effort in his abilities again,which made Arteta thought of having a second goal keeper,and the then second choice was not good enough to even keep a game in the premier league,he had to sign Raya when he was available in the market.And I can say now that the both keepers will stay at the team,he who does better will get playing time.

Raya is a good goalkeeper. I think Arteta was not trying to just bring in another backup goalkeeper this time. No, he wanted to bring in another starting goalkeeper. He wants to have two goalkeepers that can play for them as main goalkeepers. He wanted to have a backup goalkeeper, who is as good as the main one.  in case, something happens to one goalkeeper, the other will not be a problem for the team. Now first of all I think this is really good for the team. But the two goalkeepers might have a little problem regarding which one is getting more playtime. But Raya definitely came into the team knowing that right?
