1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Cardano will replace ETH! on: January 16, 2019, 10:28:31 PM
Seems your prediction gone true and this is the time for Cardano to reveal themselves as the next generation of ethereum.


Yes. I think the project has a great chance to become a competitor to ethereum if in the first quarter of this year the developers successfully update the Cardano project to the Shelley stage.
No eth will be eth and cardano will be cardano. Now, if you are referring to tge marketcap volume of the crypto the edge against the eth from cardano is quite huge. Eth is already establish and this is why I disagree with your opinion. Seems like most of the crypto in the market are using ethereum platform so this makes it possible for ethereum to have an edge over other crypto in the market.

A news a while ago releases that DX. Exchange plans to offer digital versions of big U.S. stocks. Others believe that this is the beginning of the traditional marketís merge with blockchain technology but some people thinks about it in a negative way. What are your thoughts about this news?  Huh
This is already happening especially if you are gambling loke poker game. The money now being replace with chips or tokens to be exchange to fiat if one will decide to wrap up playing games in gambling. Fortunately bitcoin was first of the kind token a digital token that could be replace or.substitue to money.

Wel just hoping that the digital tokens will br accepted in some areas where it will be needed.

Why not trying at investing on altcoin or bitcoin, maybe you can stop for a while in ICO investment project and keep focus your time for joining trading, you can take profit every day and hold when your asset lower price.
I seem cannot point out your idea since you are talking about investing on either bitcoin or altcoins. You may seem right investing on coins that is already listed in the market is one of the good way to prevent investing fraud or scam project the ICO projects.

So, I agree and suggest to invest directly on bitcoin or an ethereum.might be one of the consideration to invest with in cryptocurrency.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: SHOW NO MERCY TO SCAMMERS! on: January 16, 2019, 03:25:38 PM
Do you have suggestions on how to practically eradicate scamer projects? because it's true that these scamers have reduced trust in crypto

SEC was suppose to be doing this but they can't just get to work on it, online jurisdiction must be very difficult for them. As for now its going to be in our hands to make all these happen. There are scam busters in the scam and reputation of this forum, glad they know how to scan which team is only getting their photos somewhere.
This is why we need to let the government regulate cryptocurrency. We had no other choice if we will let the scammer do this. Actually I have seen one bounty team management that always bring scam project and they had a lot reason of it or strategy that will triggered at the end of ICO period or after they gather some money from.the crowd.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: DESICO IS A SCAM on: January 16, 2019, 03:19:24 PM
Lucky I was not able to.continue joining bounty campaigns with this project. At first I really believe on this one and thinking that the project has a good team. However, since I was also having some hectic schedules I failed to work with them. Now that news came that the project was scam, I was a little bit happy that I did not become part of it.
6  Economy / Economics / Re: Who are benefited with cryptocurrency? on: January 15, 2019, 03:46:10 PM
in my opinion, in general, those who benefit from it are investors who have great confidence and great patience, and of course investors are smart in seeing and utilizing every opportunity that will be obtained.
Well investors were just the milking cows of the benefactors. Just imagine the crypto exchange after doing an ICO period collected some money and then create the product of the system then invite other coins to join to the exchange then relatively after that the exchange will only going to receive the transaction fee from the transaction being made in the exchange. So, this is a kind of benefits that one could get and developing an exchange is just one time but receiving the fee from the transaction being made then it is the exchanger benefited the cryptocurrency system.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Are you willing to pay or donate with your bitcoin on the current market? on: January 15, 2019, 03:28:45 PM
It well depend on how rich you are and it will be possible for the rich people to do this. I can donate of course if I do not need money but since I am poor so better not to donate if I have only had that much money so why not?,

Now, donating bitcoin and other crypto is not a usual activity that will going to happen so better hire a user that could be trusted in this. However, i just had one question. How long the bearish market will stop?
8  Economy / Speculation / Re: Cryptopia Hacked. Will BTC Crash? on: January 15, 2019, 03:14:54 PM
Cryptopia Hacked. Will BTC Crash?
I think they eat people money and than they say their Exchange hacked.

What another hack for real? I will have to search for this one on google if it is real and then if it does then a huge possibility that it will going to bring down bitcoin market price. The bear market has gotten long enough now since last July of the year 2017. It was being recorded at that moment for 10K USD for btc and that was also relatively good but seeing now the 3.6K and the possibility to bring down for more then it would be a disgrace for BTC and crypto market.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How do you manage your risks? on: January 14, 2019, 02:44:29 PM
I am holding my coins on different wallets and on different exchanges. It is extremely important because some people are using multiple MEW wallets, but only one exchange. The more you will diversify your funds, the safe it will be for you.
Yes, it is better to have multiple wallets but please it is not good to store coins at exchange wallets. You do not know that this type of wallets might be vulnerable to hijacks and you do not want anyone take your coin holdings so as much as possible store it somewhere else and access it on viewing only not by accessing it often by its private key or seed phrase. There is a high risk for it that your private keys and seed phrase will be compromise.

Nobody seems to be taking advantage of that video creation idea. I even put together a site to list Bitcoin music, and you can see some samples in the link below.
Bitcoin Tunes

I need to replace the flower pictures, so I might have a cartoon contest to add some humour to the index page.

Yeah heard of this songs in youtube and I was kind of getting hit by the lyrics. I bought high and sell low. This because I am still new in this cryptocurrency but it does not mean that I can not go back and be smart again. My strateg now is to risk and that is buying when it has a low market price.

Anyway, most of users are average posters. There is no reason to go beyond witty post just to get merit. Let us just wait and see for tghe forum has undergone a lot of changes. Who knows one day that ranking up will be available by purchasing or paying a fee. LOL. I will be more than happy tp rank up.
11  Economy / Economics / Re: Recession effects on Crypto: How to plan your investment portfolio on: January 12, 2019, 03:13:20 PM
When economists predict upcoming recession, now is the best time to plan your investment portfolio and analyze how recession might impact cryptocurrencies. Hereís an article how portfolio could be diversified for the upcoming market crash:

https://www.signalshunt.com/recession-effects-on-crypto
So hard now. I am trying to invest again so that I could recover my loss but seeing market price would go down for more so now I am doubtful. I have also read a  lots of users perspective on the speculation sections but still many believes that market price will go down. So now, I am still waiting for it to happen. And if does then I will invest for sure again.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ethereum will rise again. on: January 12, 2019, 03:02:19 PM
In the new 2019, Ethereum began to grow steadily.
Of course, this is not the pace that many cryptocurrency players expect, but I see a great future behind it.
Definitely great prospects will open to investors after the market recovers.
Well I hope your words will going to happen. I have invested in ethereum and still holding it because selling or trading it will result to losses on some of the investment.

Anyway, I was having some doubts now to invest or not because the current market price has fall down a little bit and it might be that it could sti fall for more. There is no really a baseline for market for crypto because it can go really deep.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: One thing I am Glad for in 2018 on: January 12, 2019, 02:51:00 PM
I do not share the same sentiments, last year was not the worst year for crypto, it was just different.
There are still some people who think everything is going to always positive and without controversial sagas.

No, market price down trend makes it worst. If you are investing bitcoin then you can feel it. This is why I said that it was the worst. As OP said that many were expecting the bottomline was 6k Usd since bitcoin is established already. However, it went dow. and this is where shit happens.Now, many investors are holding because if they will.not the. they will going to lose their investments.
14  Other / Meta / Re: ban account. I appeal to the global moderators on: January 11, 2019, 08:31:28 AM
You gave an example of 2 sentences. And if someone writes "Satoshi Nakomoto is a famous person because he created bitcoin". Is this plagiarism? As more and more material is written about cryptocurrency, the risk of creating similar offers increases more and more.

It would be possible since there are many articles regarding with the bitcoin or any topics that has been discussed here over and over again. But, it will still make a difference because we construct the sentence and paragraph in a different way. If it was being copied and paste word for word then it could be associated directly to plagiarism. But, if it is not then there could be a chance that an individual will become a plagiarist when his/her post and opinion has will has similarities with other's opinion and how it was being constructed. Yet, it would be the slightest chance that will going to happen. It would be a very rare case.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The dump has started for 2019 on: January 11, 2019, 08:15:08 AM
Market conditions make many people disappointed because the price of coins continues to decline. From the beginning of the year, it was actually very good because the market was in a positive trend. Even though the price is still very low and now the market is falling again.
This will lead to lose interest on some of the people who join and invest in cryptocurrency. However, fluctuation is a good sign that cryptocurrency is still working. Eventually after some downtrends it will make another run and a good market price increase. There are reasons now why cryptocurrency made some fluctuation and that probably because of the latest hacks from ETC in an exchange.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Shower thought on the state as a Bitcoin holder and government subsidized mining on: January 11, 2019, 08:02:03 AM
Nick Szabo recently spoke on the Israel Bitcoin Summit in Tel Aviv University, and he said that,

Quote

THEREíS GOING TO BE SOME SITUATIONS WHERE A CENTRAL BANK CANíT TRUST A FOREIGN CENTRAL BANK OR GOVERNMENT WITH THEIR BONDS FOR EXAMPLE. [Ö] ONE SOLUTION THATíS BEEN DEVELOPED IS TO HAVE THE SWISS GOVERNMENT HOLD IT FOR YOU Ė THATíS NOT A TRUST MINIMIZED SOLUTION. THE SWISS GOVERNMENT ITSELF IS SUBJECT TO POLITICAL PRESSURES AND SO A MORE TRUST MINIMIZED SOLUTION IS CRYPTOCURRENCY.


Let's pretend that central banks or the different states around the globe started holding large amounts of Bitcoin, but the block rewards are not enough to support the miners anymore after several halvings. Wouldn't it force the central banks or the state to keep the network going by mining at a loss, but subsidized by the government?

Tell me what's wrong with that logic.
Subsidizing the mining parties would be good but that is if the central banks around the world are holding bitcoins. As we all know that central banks are holding money not bitcoins. They are just supporting bitcoins but not through subsidizing the miners. As we all know that governments has no control over the cryptocurrency system since it is still developing and needs approval from the government.

All these lazy hacker,  I wonder why they can't use their smartness to achieve something better in a legit way rather than stealing
Actually they are not lazy because they are doing well in hacking or scamming other users. They are very motivated to do it because their efforts will be paid depending on the portfolios they will get after hacking. These hackers nowadays are doing their best and probably now they are taking much from other users. So they are not lazy instead they are really hard working to hack other user's portfolio.

this should be basic sense for people who understand how wallets work , but sadly most of airdrop users are people who are new to crypto in general and looking to make something to start with for free
hope that every site or telegram channel that spreads airdrops make this info pinned for new users in case these users wanted to join another airdrop that isn't listed by that source
it is just common sense for all of us here. We know that because of anonymity feature many are encourage to scam others. Just take the altcoins and bounties sections. There are many fraud and scam projects there. Just include also some hackers that will let you join a group and download a link or a malware that will lead them to hack your accounts.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Implant microchip- Bitcoin wallet? on: January 08, 2019, 09:35:50 AM
Hello all!
I have just heard about microchip in a hand which you can use for Bitcoin payments.
Have you heard about it? Do you know where to order?
I have heard that it is classic microchip for dogs/cats but you have to modify it, but how?

Oh really?, I thought it was a security chip to identify all the people living in that country to solve crimes. This will allow the government to monitor individuals locations and records it in a system where the government could access so that it will be use as a reference if there is any crime happening to which it relate to that person. Anyway, This is not ideal planting a chip for bitcoin wallet in our body. There are better ways storing bitcoin than this.

I would pass that implant wallet! I don't want to implant anything in my body!
Yeah that is a foreign object and even our bodies will not allow for this. Our body will interact to this and this could cause health problems to our body. Sad, but see those people who implanted foreign objects on their boobs and butts now that they are having problem with it from infections and other serious related diseases.

19  Other / Meta / Re: I seem to be finding some reasonable posts. on: January 08, 2019, 09:25:49 AM
There are two kind of merit makers here,
1.Few pwoplw making really useful posts inwhat they are better at.
2.Some people used to make posts for the sake of getting merits,which maybe worthy to merit but I am not sure this is the intention of merit system being introduced

Merits needs to be awarded when its needed,no matter of who is that poster. Smiley
Misspelled Typo, will be less likely attractive to read. Anyway, there are many users that are always posting in this section knowing that many merit source are lurking and looking post to get send merit. This is why we can see many of users hanging around in this section. Obsession to get merits in inevitable.
I wish we could get away from the obsession with merits. Most of the highly merited posts here are of little interest to me. I think the attitude, knowledge and contact of a poster is far more important than his merit awards. I don't understand why some posts are given merit, and I suspect that many don't understand some of my awards.

I don't really care if a poster wears socks with sandals, or can't use his little finger to control chopsticks. I do find it annoying if he wears his merits like a bling necklace.
Well there could be more reason other than that getting merit to brag about it. Some were just like to get merits in order to rank up and earn more in participating signature campaign. This is the very common reason why one always find a way to get merit. I did not say that I am not one of them but it looks like I am though. LOL

Actually your problem could be arrange. You do not talk about legal matters? This is the best way for you to solve your problem. You can talk to your lawyer with your wife and other parties concern about your assets that includes your cryptocurrency. OP, you should not worry too much after your death or any situations that will affect both of your properties or any things that important to you. Life is just too short so enjoy it and spend quality some time with your wife and to your family and every thing else will going to follow.

Just bring your problem to legal matters OP. Lawyers were very good at it and will definitely help you to solve your problem. Good Luck OP hope to see your problems solve.
