1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Germany League - Bundesliga Prediction Thread on: July 04, 2022, 05:58:54 PM
I don't hear about rumours related to German teams these days. Bayern Munich don't make many transfers so I'm already accustomed to that but it shouldn't be the same for Dortmund as well. They need to continue to make the squad stronger to keep their current level in the Bundesliga at worst. Otherwise they can even be under the threat of losing the second place in the league table. I don't say anything about the championship because it is obvious that Bayern Munich have a huge chance to be dominant again.
True, among other Bundesliga clubs Bayern Munich has a squad above the other contestants. I can also say that they will come out again as champions in the competition next season.
But in the Champions League, I have a little doubt about them, because they have a squad that is not much different, only Mane being a new name is their biggest transfer. I have a little doubt that they will be able to compete in the Champions League next season.

Bayern Munich is not going to have any problems winning the Bundesliga title at all. They don't have any competitors who will be able to give them a decent fight.

But in the Champions League, they have a lot of competition and there are teams that are better than Bayern Munich in a lot of aspects. So they will obviously find it hard to win the Champions League.

I think the case of Bayern Munich has become like PSG. Bayern Munich also does not face hard competition in the league and that does not prepare them well enough going into the Champions League.

It is reported that the 25-year-old forward Jesus joined Arsenal for £45 million from Man City. This is a fantastic signing for the team, but Arsenal needs more high-quality players! It is important for Arteta not to stop now. We'll see whether Jesus can save Arsenal or not! The hard worker puts 110% in, but no longer catches City's side, so good luck to him at Arsenal. He was let go at the wrong time by the City. Next season, they will probably rely too much on Haaland, which is not good.

Adding Gabriel Jesus to the squad is a good deal for Arsenal. But if Arsenal wants to be in the top four of the points table, they need a more talented striker. Moreover, Arsenal's forward and defense were relatively weak in the previous season. So in addition to Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal should have an experienced defender. Otherwise, their performance will not improve much.

Same as the previous match Shakib Al Hasan contributed good to the team score. West Indies have played well, reaching a score of 193 runs with every player contributing little runs is really good. First winning match got no result due to rain. This time everything looks fair. I expect Bangladesh to make a series against Ireland, because from low bottom they're playing the best.
In fact, there is a huge lack of focus among the Bangladeshi players. They have already lost two Test matches against the West Indies, especially due to lack of connection. Shakib Al Hasan saw some form in the abandoned match but we got something good from him in the second match as well. If the other players had played a little better, this match could have gone to Bangladesh.
Despite losing the match, Shakib Al Hasan scored an unbeaten 68 runs off 52 balls. However, I expected another batter to step up, yet BAN failed once again. Bangladesh lost by a huge margin despite Shakib staying till the end. It was actually a slow innings, and not up to the standard of T20 matches when you have a big target. They will only win against Zimbabwe and associate nations, but not against WI at home with this approach. Nevertheless, the hosts put on a fantastic performance all around!

While the West Indies set a huge target of 194 runs, it was not possible for Bangladesh to win this match based on the good performance of just one batsman. If the target is high, the team depends on the performance of the top-order batsmen to win. And Bangladesh's top order failed as always. As long as Bangladesh does not get good and consistent performance from the top order, the performance of the Bangladesh team will not improve.

Hey, thanks for sharing these articles. Knowing that I really know those top 10 brands mentioned in the article except for Ray-Ban, no doubt that NFTs are being more than the craze over ICOs back then.
These tech giants are really riding the NFT hypes right now. Back then, I almost never heard any brands adopting any forms of crypto.
According to my prediction, NFT and metaverse will be the next explosive trend when the bull season comes, everything is going very well.

The crypto market changes and progresses very rapidly. In 2017, the ICO trend dominated the market and was followed by ponzi schemes, then they quickly retreated and collapsed. In the present day, cryptocurrencies have layer 1, layer 2 blockchain solutions and hundreds of ideas are being researched and implemented. Additionally, many companies are starting to accept cryptocurrency payments and are starting to see cryptocurrencies more openly. I predict large corporations will not stay out of this technology race, they will soon issue their own tokens.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: July 03, 2022, 05:22:44 AM
I don't know how much money they have currently but I hope it isn't a very low amount. They paid Ä81.60m for Vlahovic and it was a really huge amount indeed. Their last transfer activites have been like signing Federico Chiesa permanently for Ä40m and selling Merih Demiral to Atalanta for Ä20m. As a result maybe you might be right about that. But they can at least loan a striker if they aren't able to pay a big amount for now. If they don't solve the striker problem, they can have serious problems when one of their strikers get injured and if it is especially Vlahovic.
It would have been smarter of them not to sell MelihDemiral, I mean sure thats a good sum of money but if De Ligt is sold to Chelsea for a huge sum, then it would be very tough for them to get another defender at the same time. They will have enough funds to get someone at least, with 100 million for a defender, they would have plenty to get a new defender for sure, from all around the world. I believe they should go with serie A teams, they have decent defenders and knowing the league matters ,for something like 20-30 they could get the best ones, probably someone way cheaper available for sure. And they could use the rest for something else.

They have done a lot of things to make a better midfield and the attack also looks good but the problem is one injury can cause the attack to change too much and it might be really hard for the others to get used to with whatever they decide to do as a new tactic. I also agree that getting a player on loan is going to be a good decision and if they find that they are to be very well suited for the team they can always choose to keep him by buying him later. But they do need players in the attacking position pretty quickly.

I have to disagree with you here. Primera Liga is not a league where you can expect players to play with top skill, because all of the good stars are bought up by other clubs. So it's quite unreasonable to dismiss Nunez simply because he hasn't won much silverware - especially since we are talking about someone coming from the Europa League diggers Benficia.
Winning trophies cannot be a benchmark. This is just how Nunez will adapt at Liverpool. During his time at Benfica he was very good, he deserved a contract with Liverpool. Indeed statistics can not be a measure of success or not. But with statistics many clubs use it as a basis for buying players. Remember many star players failed in the EPL but many also succeeded. We can only guess, we have to wait patiently for next season to run.

Trophies are not benchmarks obviously. But in the long run that is the only thing that counts. Unless your team is very hungry for trophies the team is not going to perform very well. Nunez will have to get adjusted to Liverpool. They have spent a lot of money to get this player. And I think the stats of Liverpool are going to be good in the next season as well. But I would be really happy to see them winning the champions league title this season. As I think it is the main target of Liverpool right now.

In my prediction, it won't happen. I won't discuss about market cycles or how long bitcoin's previous dips lasted.

But looking at the global economic and political situation, we can see that we are in a crisis period, so risk assets like bitcoin or stocks will find it difficult to rally again this year. Things will only get better if inflation falls and the economy gradually recovers.

Atlanta Fed forecasts GDP in the second quarter will go negative, if this really happens we're in for a global recession.

In the case of cryptocurrencies, the only assets we are protecting are the private key and the seed phrase. So, it's absolutely not a good idea to use them often and always check the popup when it asks us for a seed phrase.

I personally always store them off-net and I just use it every time I reset my hot wallet, if there's a strange site asking for the seed phrase, I'll just ignore them.

I have not heard of that news about that NFT integration with Facebook though.
Not only has Facebook announced the integration of NFT into their app, but you can also find recent binance information, they have teamed up with football legend CR7 and announced the upcoming release of a special NFT collection for football fans, which is expected to launch later this year. If you dig into NFT, you'll find that unlike the previous ICO trend, it's actually very exciting and potential, I was hooked when I researched them.

He is too old to be president, on the day of the US presidential election I watched very closely and was quite surprised when Biden won. After the vote was recounted, I still hoped that Trump could turn the tide, but in the end it didn't happen and now the United States is suffering from inflation not seen in 40 years. If Biden continues to be president in 2024, I think the US will soon be surpassed by China in all aspects.

8.  Investing in Just One Type of Crypto

I agree with this point too. This goes against the rule of diversification because diversification is to put money in different aspect of business so that incase one is failing and the other or next might succeed and you gain or recover from the loss of the losing one. If you invest in just one type of coin with alot of money, it is not a good investment. It is better to put money in different coins like throwing your net in the river you never know the fish it will catch for you.

My understanding of portfolio diversification is that we will invest in many different areas, not in many different coins. It won't be true if you invest in shitcoins without investing in bitcoins, or if you just invest in bitcoins and don't need a lot of shitcoins. Crypto market is not like other markets, everything here is dominated by bitcoin, if bitcoin goes down then no coin can go up or vice versa. Diversifying crypto investments isn't bad, but it doesn't make much of a difference.

As of now, I have seen no practical use for the NFT or real utility it offers, except for the hype surrounding it, which is all it has. Unfortunately, that's what newbies are looking for, they want to invest in something that can make them rich quick.
The bear market will be a test of whether the NFT is really worth investing in or if it's just the market's next dying trend.
Maybe you are right but there are use cases that worth looking out for nfts. I think the mover app with nft related is a nice application though. Its just that the first one who did that gmt didnt manage it well, or lets just say Im early to judge them on that issue on their legal stuff. But aside from that, those nft usage Ive saw, usually works as a perks or appreciation thing. Maybe company can use that to generate a way to give benefits to their people which can be converted inyo goods or cash money.

Formerly, I thought that NFT was just a temporary trend and would soon fade away but after spending time learning more, NFT is not really a scam but to apply and it really creates real benefits for users takes a lot of time. Large companies and corporations are also excited to participate in the two fields of NFT and Metaverses, so I think it has a big chance in the coming bull season if it can survive this bear season.

Recently, the company Meta announced that they will integrate NFT into the Facebook application.

They did show some really good signs in the last season but in the end, they did not score enough goals. They lost their way through the middle and late part of the season.
St. Pauli had the problem at the beginning of the year that important players were injured. And the substitutes unfortunately did too many mistakes. Then there was the fact that Finn Ole Becker had already said in winter that he would be leaving the club. That did not necessarily contribute to the team spirit.

They obviously had a lot of problems. Otherwise, they could have done better in the last season. Now I would surely like to see a better performance from them but first of all, they will have to fix all the problems that they currently have in the team. They cannot afford to have these kinds of problems if they want to get promoted the next season. And looking at things the promotion is surely not going to be easy. They will have good competition.

They will need to start the season well and I believe they have a good coach who will be able to bring consistent results this season. Hopefully, none of the problems like the last season are going to happen.

The thing is, Inter is not bringing Lukaku into the team as a transfer. They are bringing him in as a loan player. I am not saying that the salon suggests that they donít have a good amount of money but as far as I know the financial situation of Inter-is not very good. But they are getting good enough players in my opinion. The next season can be very well.
...
You know it right. Inter are really not in a wonderful financial condition currently. It must be the reason why they found the Lukaku deal much more profitable than signing another striker by paying a big transfer fee. They are going to pay an amount only around 8 million euros for his loan deal.
By the way I heard something about Lautaro Martinez's condition too and it is said that he is very happy at Inter and doesn't want to leave now for sure. This is good news for them undoubtedly. I can't wait to watch Lukaku and him playing together again!  Cheesy

It is actually crazy to say that Inter just sold this player for 97 million if I am correct and one year later that same player is back on the team.

What a waste of money by Chelsea! Lips sealed

I donít want to offend anyone but I never thought he was worth that much money. But getting this player on the loan is also not bad for Inter. If Lautaro Martinez decides to stay in the team as well I think the attacking lineup is going to be really strong for them going into the next season.

Start with bitcoin if you are newbies, if you have no experience and don't have a lot of knowledge. Bitcoin can help you both make profit and avoid scams in the market.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: FIFA 2022 world cup on: June 30, 2022, 02:39:43 AM
This means that the final for the World Cup 2022 can actually be Brazil vs Argentina, both teams have been defeated zero times so far.
The current situation is different, you are too sure Brazil vs Argentina will go to the final, the match hasn't even started yet how do you say that, what if the opposite happened, brazil vs argentina did not enter the final this time, I'm sure they will stay away.
What if the next world cup in Qatar 2022, which entered the final was taken by France vs. England, for the Brazil vs Argentina team no, are you sure about that, I'm not sure myself, I think the situation is reversed this time, don't rely on the last Euro 2020, that's a different story, their world cup has the best players, all countries want to do whatever it takes to win the world cup, on the field will prove the problem of the semi-finals and finals of the 2022 world cup.

France has a really good chance of winning the world cup again, they have a stacked team. France's national team is basically like any fantasy football team. it doesn't get any better than this at the international level. I honestly think France has a really good chance to win the world cup unless something really bad happens as it happened with Germany and Spain after the 2018 and 2014 world Cups. I think that is not going to happen this time because we haven't had any kind of problems like that in the France national team.

St Pauli is also considered a candidate for promotion next season. However they have to cope with some losses. After Finn Ole Becker already declared his transfer in winter and Guido Burgstaller, an offensive player is also leaving the club, another offensive player is now leaving St. Pauli. Daniel-Kofi Kyereh is moving to SC Freiburg in the 1st Bundesliga.
hmmmm. i think st. pauli has to get one or two good players. otherwise they won't be playing for the top places.
some other teams in the second division have bought well: it's going to be damn hard for st. pauli to play at the top again.
but st. pauli still has time to sign a few good players. and i think two or three good people will come along.
Clearly. But with the income from the sales, they should be able to strengthen themselves. Especially in the offensive they need at least one more player.  I hope that St. Pauli gets a good team together and that they go into the next season with a lot of spirit.

If they want to get new players on the team they will surely have to move fast because all the other teams looked really serious about going into the next season. but I don't see any urgency from St. Pauli. They still have some time left but I am not sure if they will be able to utilize the time properly. They did show some really good signs in the last season but in the end, they did not score enough goals. They lost their way through the middle and late part of the season.
18  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Taking Loans - Is it ideal? on: June 29, 2022, 02:29:05 PM
Personally i can't take a loan to invest in Bitcoin, i hardly ever take loans, and the few times i have ever taken one i knew the sort of pressure i wan under when i tried to raise money to repay my creditor and things were not going according to plan, one time it led me to take another loan, as i had to borrow from a different person to complete the due sum of my first loan. You can imagine eh?

Now imagine if i took a loan to invest in Bitcoin few weeks back and this dump came, that will definitely drive me nuts, and it will indeed affect my peace in RL and my relationship with my family and loved ones, that is not something i want, thus i will only buy Bitcoin with my money, with the understanding that this is money i can afford to lose, and whatever should happen i will take full responsibility for.
I also don't like to take out a loan to invest, especially in high-risk investments. Even though I can afford to repay those loans, it seems that every time I invest money borrowed from my loan, it puts pressure on me and makes me wonder where to invest to earn soon profit.

Bitcoin can be considered a good investment but with its volatility and unpredictability, we never know when it will rise again. So I just invest with the money I have.
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: When to take profit? on: June 29, 2022, 04:53:43 AM


I am thinking of taking out my initial investment when I double my money and just leaving the profit to see what returns I can get long term. Is that a common way or is it best to just take small amounts at a time?



Would be interesting to hear everyoneís thoughts.
I don't know which coins you hold, but if you have already made double profits, the safest thing to do would be to withdraw the initial capital and just leave the profit. This plan makes perfect sense in this moment or you can withdraw all because you believe the market will fall again, and that would be a good time to buy back.

Taking profit is never wrong and even more true in bear season, in bear season it is not easy to make profit. You should be happy with what you've achieved and not greedy, greed will make you lose again in a market that's too harsh and not what we'd like.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: June 28, 2022, 12:32:54 PM
~snip~
The question is which players are they interested in?

We already know about Inter actually. They are making an effort to sign Romelu Lukaku back on a loan deal this time. This is going to be a very profitable deal for them undoubtedly. Because they have sold him to Chelsea for a huge price like 113 million euros and now they are close to having him back by this favourable deal. It would be great to watch the well-known duo (Lukaku-Martinez) again on the condition that Martinez doesn't leave the team to join Tottenham.

When it comes to Milan I've heard that they are interested in Andrea Belotti lately but let's see. He is a decent striker but I still have some doubts about him at the same time.

The thing is, Inter is not bringing Lukaku into the team as a transfer. They are bringing him in as a loan player. I am not saying that the salon suggests that they donít have a good amount of money but as far as I know the financial situation of Inter-is not very good. But they are getting good enough players in my opinion. The next season can be very well.

About Milan, I have not heard anything that is really worth mentioning. I donít know if they are going to make big changes. But they really should think about making those changes pretty fast.
