I have observed on this forum that almost all newbies are interested in only making money and hence ask questions related to only trading, and bounty campaigns. They also seek to increase their post counts and therefore post low quality posts all over the different boards.

I think newbies should first of all learn about Btc, cryptocurrency, and the blockchain technology as a whole and understand the dynamics in the crypto world before they venture into making money.

Newbies should use this forum basically for learning before any other thing else.
What do you also think about this??

Hereís the thing guys, if youíre just here to learn and engage with people not because youíre rushing to get a lot of money, youíll be struggling, big time. But for knowledge investment to be much more comfortable with our world, thatís when you will be successful.

There are tons of article in here just search for them

A newbie that talks like an experienced one. I just want to acknowledge how are you setting a good example to new members. Yes people, try to search and donít be lazy rather than to ask questions and wait for answers, chase for answers yourselves. Thank you good sir.

Bounty Analysis
Detailed guide to ICO bounties

1. What are Bounties?

A Bounty campaign is a marketing tactic that allows a company to allocate a small amount of their tokens to promoting their ICO through the crypto community. Bounties are simply jobs, tasks, or projects that have usually been created by token developers. If participants complete the job, then they will receive a reward in token form.

The tasks are never too complicated, and almost never involve any sort of computer programming. Thatís what the developers do. However, there will be other things that the developer either canít do, or just wonít have time to do. However, those tasks are necessary for the success of the token they created. So what do they do? They get other people to do those tasks, rewarding them with tokens of their creation.

    Examples of typical bounties include promoting the new token on Twitter, or translating promotional content for that token. Something anyone can do in their spare time.

2. Origin of bounties

The original ďBugs BountyĒ program was the creation of Jarrett Ridlinghafer while working at Netscape Communications Corporation as a technical support Engineer.

Netscape encouraged its employees to push themselves and do whatever it takes to get the job done and, in late 1995, Jarrett Ridlinghafer was inspired with the idea for, and coined the phrase, ĎBugs Bountyí.

He recognized that Netscape had many enthusiasts and evangelists for their products, some of whom to him seemed even fanatical, particularly for the Mosaic/Netscape/Mozilla browser. He started to investigate the phenomenon in more detail and discovered that many of Netscapeís enthusiasts were actually software engineers who were fixing the productís bugs on their own.

More recently, the concept of a bounty program comes from the online gaming world, where a bounty is a reward paid out to an individual or group for accomplishing certain objectives.

In the ICO sphere, bounty programs are used by blockchain startups to accomplish a wide range of tasks at the cost of the projectís token.

3. Purpose of bounties

ICO bounty programs allow companies to use their platform tokens for maximization of their marketing efforts.

Within the cryptocurrency scene, bounties have become a useful part of any ICO campaign. Many startups usually incorporate a bounty program as part of their ICO campaign. During the bounty program, the ICOs provide compensation for a number of tasks spread across marketing, bug reporting or even improving aspects of the cryptocurrency framework. The reward is usually in the form of cryptocurrency tokens or fiat currency (this option is rare).

Bounties are essentially tokens of appreciation for helping the blockchain project progress. They cut down on costs for startups while simultaneously incorporate members of the [Suspicious link removed]munity.

However, the ICO landscape is extremely competitive. It is not uncommon for dozens of ICOs to be happening at the same time. One way that startups can get ahead of their competitors is through running a successful ICO bounty program.

4. Types of bounties

It is common for a cryptocurrency startup to set aside a percentage of the total coin supply for the bounty program. Information regarding this amount can usually be found on their website, white paper or Bitcointalk ANN thread.

In the ICO sphere, there are two main categories of bounties:

   1.  PRE-ICO Bounty Programs ó Like the name implies, these are bounty programs that are carried out before the actual ICO. They are usually done to build momentum and to give the cryptocurrency project an improved presence on social media platforms. It is all about creating awareness for the cryptocurrency ICO and to get the buzz going. The aim of such bounties is that as participants go about carrying out the various activities, and spread the word in their circle about the new token or cryptocurrency.
   2.  POST-ICO Bounty Programs ó At this point, the ICO is completed and funds have been raised. Now, itís all about making improvements to the projects based on community suggestions. Post-ICO bounty programs are aimed at improving feedback from the crypto community.

Pre-ICO bounties:

  • Social Media Campaign Bounties
This involves activities that promote the ICO on the social media accounts of participants. The rewards earned depend on the engagement levels generated by such posts. This can be in the form of retweets, likes, shares, views, and comments. The popular social media platforms used for ICO bounty programs include Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
  • Article Writing Bounties
ICO bounty programs can offer rewards to bloggers to write featured articles about the ICO on their blogs. Just like the social media bounty, the rewards will be dependent on the engagement level of the articles and blog posts.
  • Bitcointalk Signature Bounties
    This is a popular bounty for many ICOs. It is open to participants of the Bitcointalk forum. The ICO releases a signature with a code embedded in it. The ranking of the participants who post this signature determines the number of stakes they get. For most bounty programs, only people on Bitcointalk who are Jr. Members and above can participate.

    Post-ICO bounties:

    • Translation Campaign Bounties ó This involves translating all documents for the cryptocurrency project as well as moderating different forum groups. The common translation activities include cryptocurrency website, white paper and the Bitcointalk ANN thread.
    •  Bug Reporting Bounties ó Apart from being an effective bounty campaign activity, bug reporting also helps the developers. A good bug report clearly and concisely identifies issues with the cryptocurrency software or platform.

    Note: There isnít a hard and fast rule as far as the activities for Pre-ICO and Post-ICO campaigns. Cryptocurrency ICOs can decide to use any of the aforementioned activities in either type of bounty programs.

    5. How to participate in bounties

    ICO bounty programs are a great way to participate in the market and earn tokens. These tokens can even be exchanged for fiat money. Most of the activities arenít really technical in nature as they rely on common internet activities and interactions. Participants can simply look up reliable and famous bounty programs on the internet. There are sites that will list a dedicated list of ICO bounty programs. One of the best ways to get involved in bounty programs is via Bitcointalk and Cryptocointalk forums. Almost all ICO bounties are listed here.

    Users can simply check the eligibility criteria and the activities listed to be executed under the program. They can enrol themselves in a pre-ICO or a post-ICO bounty program with added ease & earn rewards with every share, every like or every article they like. Users who are participating in a bounty program are usually called ďbounty huntersĒ. As a bounty hunter, participants are telling others about projects that are undergoing a certain bounty program.

    Signing-up for an ICO bounty program is easy. As soon as users associate with a program, they start receiving links that can be easily posted to their social media accounts. Further success depends on the number of likes, shares and other social reactions. Also, it depends on participantís writing or debugging skills, i.e. how well they might execute the task assigned. ICOís usually explain in great detail specific rules for their bounty programs.

    6. Future of bounties

    We can say that as the popularity of ICO is increasing, there is a significant increase in the popularity of bounty programs. According to the website Bounty lord, from September 2017 to date (May 15th 2018), there have been 469 active bounties and 737 closed ones.

    Out of all active bounties, 24 are active since January, 127 since February, 126 since March, 93 since April and 80 since May 2018. These numbers coincide with the increasing number of ICOís that have emerged since the beginning of 2018.

    These numbers clearly show that this trend is not going away, and that we can expect many more ICOís and a lot more exciting bounty programs to show up in the second half of 2018.

    Although the number of ongoing bounties is not going to diminish anytime soon, there is a lot of criticism of bounty programs, mostly for the following reasons:

        Bounties create an artificial sense of community through Telegram numbers, social media followers, posts, youtube videos, etc.
        They give incentives to ďfreeĒ token receivers to sell when the token is available at the market
        There is no way to tell whether hype surrounding an ICO is an active, market-ready community or a well-incentivized group of bounty hunters
        Bounty incents this group of bounty hunters to pump any news, increasing crypto volatility
        There is no differentiation between someone who is genuinely promoting a project and someone who is posting for a reward

    What might be the solution to these problems ó Full disclosure.

    • ICO projects should require their bounty hunters to somehow identify themselves when they are posting or doing an action for bountie
    • Bounty hunters should voluntarily disclose when they are posting or doing an action for bounty
    • Bounty programs should be disclosed during the token sale, so that anyone interested can clearly see what kinds of bounties are being levied and for what

This is one of the reasons why our community is running smoothly, because of ICO projects. It benefits the community with regards to the ICO creators and also the people who joins ICO campaigns. The only reason why we havenít move a lot is because of the scammers and unsuccessful coins.

I am a beginner in the bitcoin / altcoin trading market. and I want to ask all members. how do we start trading bitcoin / altcoin and how do we analyze price changes, and is there any method to analyze it ??

let's discuss together Wink

A safe way to do when youíre a beginner is to read about a potential coin that everyone is talking about. Thatís a very obvious thing to do right? But if youíre thinkig advance like pros in trading, you need to start looking for a potential coin that only you and a few people knows that it will grow rapidly. Just research about the coin a lot before buying it for trading.

All I hear about is that ICOs are scams and you need to watch out... Can someone explain why so many of these things are scams? What percentage do you think are legit businesses?

Our world, the world of crypto, has a lot to offer. When I say offer, that can be good or evil. And just like life, there are people who just wants to cheat to be multiple steps ahead from others. Those are the scammers here in iur community. They sees to get an opportunity to cheat so they grab it right away.
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Are telegram members of a project real? How can one tell? on: July 03, 2018, 03:29:38 PM
How do one know if the members of a project's telegram group are real people and not Bots. Also are there telegram audit services that can tell how many fake members are in a group.

This is a funny question cause I also thought people in telegram groups are bots. But seriously speaking, you would know if they are real if they answer you not generically, but digging deep into your question.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: how you will tell if the Campaign is scam ? on: July 03, 2018, 03:22:53 PM
I always notice some members in this forum always asking on how you will tell if the Campaign is a scam so i wrote some things you need to check before entering some campaign

First the idea of the project

If the project is called upon to solve some real problem and has no analogues yet, then it is worth attention.
If the problem is "imaginable", then boldly pass by.

Second Duration of the bounty campaign.

The longer the bounty lasts - the greater the chances that, at the end of it, you will lose a lot of time without receiving any profit, which could be insulting after 2-3 months of work. Also a bad sign when the end of campaign is constantly postpones.

Third Duration Soft-cap

Why is this factor so important? If the project does not collect this soft-cap, which is nothing less than the minimum required amount for the implementation to the project - you will get hole from donuts . You can track of the official web-site how many company has already collected.

Fourth Duration Website quality

If the site is poorly made, many bugs in the interface, poor graphics, then either it is made for illusion, or team has not normal programmers. Both options, of course, are not a good sign.

Happy Hunt.

Very good observation and I really like the last one. Iím a developer a developer myself and when it comes to poor website making, I have the advantage on looking for one. A real ICO can afford a developer that will please investors. So most likely if the website is poor, itís a potential scam ICO. Good point.

Newbie here & just starting out in Bitcoin Forum.  Trying to find out how what the requirements are for JR Member Status.  Any information would be greatly appreciated!!


Itís easy to become a junior member, just post and engage in threads that you have interest in. Then it will always count in your ďpostsĒ real time. But in order for you to reach Jr. Member, you need to have 30 activities. For each 14 days, your posts will count as your activites. But one 1 post for day will be counted.

Then you wouldnít notice that you rank will rise and thatís the time you can join campaigns so that you can earn while learning for other mediums you can use for earning money.

How to know if the ICO I join is scam or legit?

As of today, a lot of scam ICOs are really good in pretending to be a legitimate one. What you can do and what I usually do is to further investigate the developers, the managers, and the achievements of the company. Really basic but helpful.
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How can I start trading? on: July 03, 2018, 02:48:43 PM
what is trading & how work it? I want to start trading,  how can I stard this?

The first thing you need to start trading is money for investment. You will buy potential coins that will eventually grow after a few months. The very first thing you should know about trading is the coins that you will buy. Just research more about a potential coin then let time do its thing.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will Bitcoin become centralized sometime in the future? on: June 18, 2018, 04:21:21 PM
This can be of course. Thatís one of the predictions that bitcoin enthusiasts already saw. It will replace a lot of things like banks and physical money, and probably a source of corruption if everything getís outta hand. But thatís just a theory. So just live the life that youíre living now in this community.
15  Economy / Speculation / Re: Is it too late? (To buy Bitcoin now) on: June 18, 2018, 04:16:52 PM
Actually, this is a perfect time to buy bitcoin. People are now selling theirs, people who are not believing that bicoin will rise again, so thatís why the value decreased. I suggest you buy them so that when the time comes, theyíll look at you and probably cry about it. Donít stop believing in bitcoinís magic.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Those who sold bitcoin are in for a big loss on: June 18, 2018, 04:12:14 PM
This is all subjective and this is still depends if it did sell a lot. But of course thatís true, people who are selling their bitcoins now will have a large amount of loss with what theyíve started. They donít know what will happen to the future, they might be sorry after a big value increase.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Better Late than Never? on: June 18, 2018, 04:08:10 PM
Yes, that is true. Though I am one of those people who are late joining Bitcoin but I do not hesitate to make Bitcoin as my long-term investment. I'm sure Bitcoin can change my life. Smiley

Thatís the spirit! Continue to work hard and strive for more here in bitcoin, Iím sure everything will pay off after a long months of working. Just donít give up on bitcoin and youíll find out why soon.
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: Better Late than Never? on: June 18, 2018, 04:06:36 PM
Well predictions are really blurry as of today. But bitcoin believers predict a huge amount of increase after this downfall. So I suggest to never give up now so that you wonít be sorry tomorrow. Donít be afraid of having the fear of missing out, youíre just in a perfect time to join and invest.
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: campaign manager. on: June 18, 2018, 04:03:54 PM
Good question! I think it will show as the author of the thread or if not, probably they will show it after the title of the campaign or at the end of the mechanics. This is very important to know the background of the manager youíre working with. So good job for this question.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Do you need 1 merit become member from Jr. member? I would like to help you. on: June 18, 2018, 04:00:44 PM
Guys! Kindly maximize your time for this opportunity. Thereís not a lot like this good sir right here. Just give it a shot and probably you might earn 1 merit here. Itís not much as if you think, but merits are hard to earn, so I suggest maximize this opportunity. I want to join but riles says that you need to be a Jr. Member, so good kuck to all.
