1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Do you think that governments might one day ban Cryptos? on: December 03, 2019, 06:13:26 AM
I don't think they will ban cryptocurrency because of it's potential and the growth it may cause in a certain country but there are countries that already ban it and maybe because of the lack of knowledge on it, in my opinion, the government might support it or maybe they will regulate it because cryptocurrency is becoming a trend and becoming bigger and bigger than other countries that don't know about it in the past, now supports it and creates their own coins to support it.

4  Other / Beginners & Help / [History] The Casascius Physical Bitcoin on: November 16, 2019, 08:08:42 AM
Maybe some of us don't know some important things that happen in the long run of Bitcoin, People are full of questions and I wonder if there is a physical Bitcoin and through researching, I found a man named Casascius.

-Mike Caldwell also known as Casascius, Mike Caldwell is a software Engineer at his home in Sandy, Utah. An early bitcoin adopter and Bitcoin enthusiast that has many contributions in Bitcoin, Caldwell wanted to help popularize the cryptocurrency, but he, too, doesn't like the idea of Bitcoin's intangibility. The physical Bitcoin creator.

-It all starts with an idea to make physical Bitcoins Making a real tangible bitcoin that actually conveys BTC because why not? I think it's a practical idea to promote bitcoin and cryptocurrency more and during those days only a few people know what is the Internet and have a computer.
-In this post, we can see Mike Caldwell enthusiasm towards bitcoin and what he does to make it successful.
Why a physical bitcoin?
"I just want bitcoin to succeed"
-Mike Caldwell

-On 6 September 2011, Mike Caldwell began minting physical Bitcoins, naming the coins Casascius Coins. And put it up to market on September 7, 2011 CASASCIUS PHYSICAL BITCOIN - In Stock Now! (pic)
Coming Very Soon, a real Bitcoin you can hold! (and is worth 1 BTC), Casascius coins are available in the denomination of 1, 10, 25, 100, and 1000 BTC increments.

This item is presently listed for sale only through MemoryDealers.com



How does it work?
  • According to the website "Each Coin has its own Bitcoin address and a redeemable “private key” which is covered by a hologram. To read the private key inside the coin the person need to peel the hologram, once peeled and redeemed the coin will no longer have any Bitcoin value. These coins are designed for face-to-face transactions."
  • According to Casascius, there will never be more than 11,000 of the original series coins, probably much fewer than this. This coin can be identified by a misspelling of "CASASCIUS" in the small background print (the middle S is missing). As of December 2011 I have made about 3500, and the final count will be further limited by other factors: the percentage of the uniquely numbered holograms that get ruined from the start, many of the sold coins have been opened and redeemed, some of the holograms have gone into the 25 BTC coins, and am not sure if I will keep doing them by hand myself if I can manage series 2 better.
  • So in September 2011, he began making physical coins as vessels. Inside of each, he embedded a piece of paper that contained a bitcoin private key, which he protected with a tamper-resistant hologram sticker. As for the word casascius, it was half acronym (derived from the phrase “call a spade a spade”), half Latin-sounding suffix (“cius”).

Counterfeit Casascius Coins
-There have been multiple reports of fake Casascius coins being circulated in the market. The counterfeit and unauthorized coins even appear to mimic the spelling error from the Series 1 coins.

Why does it stop?
  • The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a branch of the Treasury Department, informed Casascius that minting physical coin and transmitting money requires state license and federal level registration. And thus from Nov 27, 2013, onwards, the sale is suspended for items that contain digital bitcoins, the current items in the sale does not contain bitcoins.
  • On November 23, Mike Caldwell suspended sales of items that contain digital bitcoins. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a branch of the Treasury Department, informed him before, that minting physical bitcoins qualifies him as a money transmitter business, which means he needs to register at the federal level and probably get state licenses too.

6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: The Things That Comes Into Your Mind When Winning... on: October 22, 2019, 07:04:07 AM
My perspective is when you win enough come back tomorrow, I gamble in my free time especially because I have low on cash and i can do small betting and it's a fun thing to do, when I win a huge amount by risking and increasing the chances to about 14% and i win after multiple losses it's like a sense of euphoria and I can't explain how happy am, and bet again and again and again until my profits turned to losses and i regret it so I change my perspective and if I win enough I will stop myself from betting again.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How to be profitable in sports betting? on: October 22, 2019, 06:58:24 AM
There are some odds in the sports betting and if you bet on the underdog you might get a huge amount of cash, it just depends on the odds of the betting, in my strategy, I join the majority of the people where will they bet, because you can guarantee that you will win, especially on boxing and basketball which is popular in my country I always bet on the strongest team or the strongest boxer, although the stakes are low you can still win some money.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Donating the Gambling profits on: October 22, 2019, 06:55:11 AM
There are some gambling winners that donates to charity, here in my country betting on the lottery is a common thing to do maybe because the prize money is a huge amount for us, and some of the winners donate their 10-20% in the charity but it depends on the person who wins. Some casinos organize a fundraising event to donate for charity, and here in the Philippines when there is a burial the relatives of the dead organize gambling in the burial and the players donate some of their profits to the relatives which we called "tong" it's like gambling for a cause.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling Money is Dirty Money on: October 22, 2019, 06:49:48 AM
I disagree, gambling money is not dirty money, It's about the perspective of the person who gambles and the perspective of your culture and country to gambling. In my perspective gambling is a hobby to enjoy yourself because there's a feeling of euphoria when you win it feels good it's not only about money it's about the enjoyment it gives to you. It's not dirty money because there is a gambling industry and most of the GDP of the country comes from casinos and derbies. I think it becomes dirty money when you gamble on illegal gambling like dog fights but just like I said it depends on the perspective.

13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How many times have you gone against majority on: September 08, 2019, 11:17:09 AM
I always go into the majority so that if I lose I don't feel bad about myself because there are some who loses to that's a weird mindset but it helps me a lot to cope with I loses, but if I know that the other bets are gonna win I trust myself and bet with my bets. in betting all we need is attitude and trust in ourselves.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: If You Win Big Will You Remember Your Losses on: September 08, 2019, 11:14:25 AM
Gambling is very addictive and you could not realize that you're losing because all you consider is to win and to gather all the loses because winning feels so good and it makes us happy. although losing makes someone feels frustrated and angry and it takes a lot of money once your addicted to it, you will need some help to get out of it.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Why Choose Lottery Instead Of Anything Else? on: September 08, 2019, 11:11:19 AM
The lottery takes a lot of time before knowing you lose why chose different games that you can win that depends on the stakes, I like the dice game more, and according to Wonderpolis "In a lottery in which you pick 6 numbers from a possible pool of 49 numbers, your chances of winning the jackpot (correctly choosing all 6 numbers drawn) are 1 in 13,983,816. That's 1 shot in almost 14 million." in real life and in online I think the chances are a little bit higher.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Which Sport Has Many Gambling Supporters (State Your Opinion) on: September 07, 2019, 05:35:43 AM
In our country, Tennis and Soccer is not a common sport and only few people only know that sports, so we usually take bets on basketball and boxing, I like the stakes at boxing and basketball because there are some underdogs and i like to gamble on that like on the fight of Anthony and Ruiz nobody expects that kind of fight and it's very exciting to gamble on that especially when you win because you will get a lots of money from that.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling destitute on: September 07, 2019, 05:26:17 AM
It depends on the person's perspective some gambles for fun and some gambles for a living, there are gambling tournaments especially poker, gambling is not always fun unless you win, because in gambling the higher the risk the bigger the winning so there are many people that gamble at high risk and lose all their money. While there are some people that gamble at low risk all they want is win even though they will gain low.

20  Local / Pilipinas / Re: [Gabay] Paano mabawi ang nahacked, nalocked o nawalang account on: August 18, 2019, 05:13:39 PM
dapat nakapag stake na, hindi yung mag stake palang kasi kung nalocked or nahacked na ang account mo basically hindi ka na makakapag stake ng address pa. additional lang, hindi din 100% ng cases ng hacked at lost account ang kahit pa meron ka ng mga nabanggit mo ay nababawi pa. minsan depende din sa admins at status mo sa forum kung maibabalik pa ang account mo. may mga cases sa meta na nabasa ko dati na kahit kumplete sa mga kailangan sa pag recover ng account kapag low rank ka or negative trusted account ka hindi mo na din mababawi ang account mo. pero kung legendary ka or kilala na user, hindi tatagal mababawi mo ang account mo lalo na kung meron kang kapit sa mga pulis dito sa forum.

Bakit? Kasi kapag gumamit ka ng Secret Question, it will just lock your account at hindi mo magagamit yung account mo unless nag request ka for recovery sa Bitcoin Account Recovery Team.
If you still have your email, mas better nalang na gamitin yon kaysa sa Secret Question kapag nakalimutan niyo password niyo.
I hope this helps!

Noted po, thank you po sa another information ieedit ko nalang po para hindi misleading ang post.  Wink
