1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gamble Responsibly on: Today at 03:44:58 PM

You are talking about people who have a pronounced gambling addiction and they visit casinos not for gambling or pleasure they have a compulsive and unhealthy desire to beat the casino. We all understand that this can happen only by chance and judging by the theory of probability of such an event is unlikely, but gambling addicts do not understand this and with manic passion trying to win a large sum. Such people need urgent medical and psychological help otherwise they may suffer from their desires.

3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Reasons you should not gamble on too many things at once. on: September 30, 2023, 01:07:31 PM
An important point to avoid is, never try to place bets on sports that you haven't mastered. Spending more money to gamble is something that gamblers usually do, the reason is that they bet only for the sake of winning. If someone knows he will lose a bet, he definitely wouldn't place that bet.
The habit of gambling on different sports and games does not have much of a negative effect on your finances as long as you master the type of game. You will of course review the matches played by the team you are championing before placing a bet. If the opponent is stronger but you still insist on placing a bet, it means you have opened up the opportunity to lose.

Almost all gamblers are to some extent confident in the team they are betting on. As we can see from the statistics, many of them are wrong. And in fact, there is nothing wrong with this because losing is as natural an outcome as winning. The main thing is not to get upset and do not try to return the lost money, because this behavior is inherent in a gambler who has not learned to control himself and therefore prone to make mistakes and do shortsighted actions.

Gambling games are made for fun. But if people put more emphasis on making money, they will find it difficult to earn it because gambling is not a place to make money. People should be aware of this and not take gambling seriously but just for fun. If they can have fun through gambling that's good, but if they get too deep into gambling, they will experience gambling addiction. They chose it and before they became addicted to gambling, they already knew the impact they would receive. But that doesn't make them reduce their gambling activities but rather continue gambling.
People did not see gambling for fun, we all admit that we see gambling before as a major source of income or maybe the higher your will and desire to earn more that more you see gambling in the wrong side. We should not see it in that way because if we do we will be addicted and we will rely too much in gambling and soon we don't have many left. Gambling is made to entertain not to be a stream of passive income.

I have never considered gambling as my main source of income as I cannot make a living from it. According to my personal statistics I lose a little more money than I win. Yes, sometimes I win a lot of money for me, but they still do not cover my past losses, because I have been gambling long enough and I had serious losses.

Any person who gambles should have a stable income at the main job and be able to control themselves otherwise gambling will not be fun, but a problem.

I am not in favor of anti-gambling measures taken by government agencies as they do not work the way they want them to. A good example is the situation in my country.

In my country gambling is allowed only in specially designated locations. Naturally, many gamblers play gambling only online, because they do not have the opportunity to travel thousands of kilometers to play in a land-based casino.

Taxes on the money on which I play do not go to the state treasury. They thought that they would create an infrastructure like in Las Vegas and these gambling zones would be very crowded. How wrong they were when they passed this law.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Never gamble in front of your kids. on: September 29, 2023, 06:32:24 PM

I agree with your point of view and that is why my children are the only members of my family who do not know that I like to gamble. I have noticed several times that they have seen gambling advertisements on the internet. Of course they were interested in the brightly colored ads with money and beautiful girls. I explained to them what advertising, gambling and a little bit about probability theory in words they could understand. Of course, I would not want them to gamble until they reached the age of 18. 
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Changed the game you gamble on? share your story. on: September 29, 2023, 10:24:24 AM
In my opinion playing the same game all the time is quite boring. Although no, there is one gambling game that I do not fall under this rule - it is a game of poker. I can play it endlessly. I also like to play slots, but from time to time I change them for a variety of visual perception as the same design quickly gets boring. In fact, it seems to me that a lot depends on the person. If he is conservative enough, he can play the same game for years.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling Education. on: September 29, 2023, 10:01:24 AM

I think that sex education programs are not working as intended because we know that the abortion rate among minors is just as high and it's not that young girls don't understand that contraceptives protect them from pregnancy, they just don't understand that it's important to limit their desires. And their desires say that a condom dulls the sensation of sex.

I think that teaching gambling in school will lead to more underage people becoming interested in gambling. So this initiative is quite controversial.

Не могу знать наверняка, но крипто энтузиасты все еще ставят ноды и валидируют различные проекты. Причем некоторые валидаторы в настоящее время работают практически в ноль, а то и в минус. С нодами же практически всегда получается какая-то лотерея, поэтому вполне возможно, что если требования к железу не будут высокими в проект войдут несколько фермеров и вынесут весь пул вознаграждений.
10  Local / Альтернативные криптовалюты / Re: Coinlist - хайп площадка токенсейлов on: September 28, 2023, 02:49:17 PM

Что-то уж больно скоромно они решили вознаградить участников - только топ 133 ноды и топ 4000 тестеров получат вознаграждения. Думаю что нет смысла соваться в эту движуху, т.к. желающих будет огромное количество, а работать только за идею, которая мало интересна нет особого желания. Хотя если у кого-то простаивают сервера, то можно и попытать удачу.

Жаль, что не могу сравнить период до СВО и после. Какова ситуация была в этом разделе. Предположу, что не такая острая, как на сегодняшний день. Действительно, военные действия невероятный раздор внесли в умы людей. Когда-то и подумать страшно даже было о том, что многие друг другу стали заклятыми врагами. Вы правильно написали о том, что если нет возможности в реале насрать или набить морду, то лезут на форум в раздел "Политика", где изрыгают из себя тонны желчи и такого психо бреда аж жутко становится за человечество.

Да и сравнивать на самом деле нет никакого смысла. Я кстати тоже не частый гость в разделе Политика, просто хорошо помню, что об этом разделе говорили до военного конфликта. А на счет заклятых врагов - нужно просто понимать, что у каждого своя правда, а до истины очень трудно докопаться, поэтому все эти срачи на форумах не и имеют смысла. Поберегите свои нервы, т.к. в последнее время жизнь становится все непредсказумее.
12  Local / Русский (Russian) / Re: Локал Умирает? Статистика всех локалов on: September 28, 2023, 06:45:04 AM
~ Как я понимаю, то этот процесс в этом разделе будет продолжаться бесконечно? Или все это всего лишь на какое-то время. До тех пор, пока идет военный конфликт? Я не застал времена, когда все было относительно спокойно и мне интересно узнать, как до всего этого обстояли дела в "Политике". Точно такое же отношение или куда лучше, чем на сегодняшний день? ~

Конечно военный конфликт обострил ситуацию, ведь психика не выдерживает такого давления. А вообще на мой взгляд в разделе Политика всегда был и будет срач, т.к. каждый человек в той или иной мере придерживается своих взглядов относительно политических игрищ и отстаивает эти взгляды всеми доступными методами. Раз на форуме нельзя набить морду несогласным, когда так хочется, то в бой идут оскорбления и угрозы.
13  Local / Трейдеры / Re: Биржа Binance 🔶 on: September 27, 2023, 04:15:46 PM
У меня вопрос к некоторым пользователям: вам вообще хорошо и удобно существовать в шкуре крепостных, которых помещики-владельцы бирж перекидывают друг другу когда захотят? Давно уже стоило забыть про эту помойку под названием Binance и перед этим обязательно написать в их поддержку, что за неудаление ваших персональных данных вы подадите на них в суд. А то сейчас любая помойка с "адекватным админом в Телеграме" станет наживаться на продаже вас с потрохами своим бизнес-партнерам. В конце концов, нужно научиться уважать себя и научиться  переключаться на другие варианты при любом намеке на подобный кидок.

Я давно ушел с Binance, а вот про персональные данные не додумался им написать. Xотя мне кажется, что они уже давно продали их сторонним организациям и напишут в ответном письме что мы удалили их, на самом же деле будут хранить их и использовать по своему усмотрению. Вообще все эти крупные организации плевали как на своих клиентов, так и на регуляторов - сменили название и продолжают работать где хотят. Ладно хоть не назвались криптобиржа и точка)
14  Local / Альтернативные криптовалюты / Re: Polkadot - аукционы парачейнов on: September 27, 2023, 12:33:49 PM

На мой взгляд это более рациональное решение, чем эти постоянные аукционы на слоты парачейнов с привлечением средств пользователей т.к. поддержка валидаторам действительно необходима, особенно во время медвежьего цикла. А пользователей лучше привлекать рабочей экосистемой, а не возможностью получить очередной дроп от проекта и обещаниями. Рад что Гевин Вуд пересмотрел свое мнение на счет развития Polkadot.   
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Is gambling all about luck? on: September 27, 2023, 12:24:24 PM
In my opinion making cash from gambling is not a good option and the statistical probability that you will win every game at every casino is very low. I think winning or losing every game is completely in your head, so your individual tricks are not there. However, we all have some kind of luck so we should strive for what is possible for us.
Depends on what type of gambling we are talking about.
Games like dice, slots, roulette and crash are entirely luck. The gambler could bring on strategies on how much and in what manner to bet but have zero involvement on the result.
Other form of gambling like sports betting can be analyzed for favourable bets through head to head analysis and current circumstances but the lower the risks, lower are the odds. The gambler can analyze and make better prediction yet they personally have zero involvement on the results.
Another form of gambling like P2P games like poker that involves strategy and decision-making abilities can greatly affect the chances of winning for the player who have better strategy.
No matter the the type of gambling one wants to get involved in, luck plays a big role in helping a gambler win his stakes at the end of the day but that doesn't mean that  success in gambling is solely tied to luck.
A gambler should have the needed experience in a particular kind of gambling platform in other to have more chances of winning his gambles. The experience in the selected gambling platform will help him to be strategic and to also know what to stake on and when best to stake on it.

I don't think that experience on a platform determines the likelihood of winning, but player experience can really help. If I know how to play poker, then whatever platform I go to, it's not too difficult for me to understand the platform and apply my skills. But if I do not know how to play poker, but know the gambling platform perfectly, then no matter how hard I try to win I am unlikely to succeed. In general, I believe that luck plays a major role in gambling, because it is very difficult to win with bad cards.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Credit card gambling fuels gambling addiction on: September 27, 2023, 09:08:22 AM
I find it strange how some members called the policy of the Australian Government to ban credit card usage in online gambling. They called the move as stupid and even made fun of it. They justify that it decreases the potential taxes to be collected but they didn't realize the effect of gambling on credit to the gambler. Now we see this thread that addresses it.

I guess you are talking about me, because I found Australian credit card ban policy stupid, useless and made fun of it. Because I dont see a scenario when it works. What stops gambler from using debit card, and when its balance turns zero, go out, take a loan, make a deposit and continue gambling with someone else money? What stops gambler from taking a loan? Or selling stuff, or using pawnshops to get money?

Like I've said before, addicted gambler will always find a way to get money. You can ban credit cards, debit cards, cash deposits, crypto and etc, but true gambler will always find a way to place a bet.

If gambling is the root of problem, why not start finding solution from there? Make a limit of 100 bucks deposit per month for every newbie or rank 1 gambler. I think everyone can earn a hundred per month. Here is the solution against huge debts. But casinos will never agree to that.

I absolutely agree with you. All these measures to reduce the level of gambling addiction among the population undertaken by the governments of many countries practically do not work and it is high time to recognize it. Instead of expanding the base of institutions that would identify people psychologically prone to addiction at an early stage and help people who already have gambling addiction, they pretend to work hard to improve the lives of their citizens.

I wonder if Australian politicians have ever thought that by their measures they provoke gambling addicts to crime in order to get money to continue gambling?
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Reasons you should not gamble on too many things at once. on: September 27, 2023, 08:23:29 AM
If you have the habit of playing and gambling on different sports and game, I think it is not good because of some few reasons like;
Which other reason?

If I were you, I would fix the starting post and not use capslock anymore as many forum members don't like it. Your conclusions have nothing to do with logic and I can easily refute it.

1. Why would I spend more money betting on different sports if I limit the amount of money I can spend on gambling?

2. The probability of getting a gambling addiction does not depend on the sports a gambler bets on. Someone bets only on soccer and has a gambling addiction, and someone bets on several sports and does not have a gambling addiction, but plays for fun.

3. The odds of winning are always about the same regardless of whether you bet only on soccer matches or add cricket, horse racing, basketball and others. The odds of winning increase and decrease only from your knowledge and luck.

Luck plays a role be it EV+ or EV- in nature. Just that the luck factor is smaller in the former than the other but can often become significant to make you lose or win. If you ask me, for the common people, gambling is a game of luck because most of them dont know about EV+ games because they are like full time jobs, the players are studying it and dedicating full time to it.

Even then its not a cup or cake to conquer an EV+ game, hence if you dont want to get washed out, avoid gambling.

It seems to me that anyone who decides to gamble should be fully aware of reality, namely that the probability of losing in any gambling game that requires the participation of the organizer is slightly higher than the probability of winning. And you need to treat losing as a natural outcome of the game session. Most beginners do not realize this and dream that they can get rich through gambling. Unfortunately, as much as we would like to achieve this only a few lucky people.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Some of country can offer you legal gambling in 2023! on: September 26, 2023, 01:03:22 PM
Currently, the government is also upgrading it's technological strategies of tracking casinos that are violating its policies. It might be easier to track online fiat casinos but crypto casinos will always be difficult to monitor. Since some cryptocurrencies are decentralised the government will not be able to control crypto casinos. In my country gambling is forbidden in a region while another region promotes and gains tax from it. But when the revenue from taxing these gambling companies is shared, even the region that bans gambling will accept the revenue derived from casinos  Cheesy. The government will not ban corruption but they want to ban casinos. Most of all these politicians are just hypocrites and religious fanatics. The focus should be on promoting responsible gaming and not an outright gambling ban.
What we are seeing is that politicians are unable to keep up with the times, most politicians are very old and they refuse to leave even when it is obvious they cannot do their job properly, and this causes that they try to impose policies that make no sense at this time, if for example one of those politicians has a moral objection against gambling, I can respect that, but such objections should not be made into a law, because if they do, not only they will deny themselves a great deal of taxes but people will decide to gamble anyway, it is just that now they will hide their activities to avoid being prosecuted by those ridiculous laws.
Those politicians are very old but still want power and don't remember their old age. They can no longer carry out their duties well and instead have a bad influence on their subordinates so that these subordinates continue what their elders did. And that often happens when politicians use their power to get what they want. In this case, they want more money. So it's natural that we still hear rumors that politicians have their own casinos and operate underground. Many people protect their casinos so that the place can operate safely.

Political systems in many countries work in such a way that their true goals are not the welfare of citizens, but personal enrichment and ensuring the security of the system itself and the authorities that cover it. In the ranks of such political systems sit the same crooks, swindlers and subhumans who are willing to go to their heads just to hold on to power. That is why I have long since given up hope on the authorities, not only in matters of gambling and regulation of this sphere, but also in many other issues.

Тут действующие проекты не всегда могут восстановится от падения цены, просто потому что падение биткойна потянуло рынок вниз, то куда уж там мем-коинам. Я уверен что проще и дешевле создать и раскрутить новый мем-коин, чем спасать умирающий. Тем более после exit-scam. К тому же как спасать - вложением денег? Это колоссальный риск. Не думаю что в крипте есть инфлюенсер уровня "я что угодно сделаю популярным". 

Конечно проще раскрутить новый токен, т.к. запускать ракету, в которой уже сидят тысячи голодных до денег пассажиров достаточно сложно. В некоторых Telegram чатах наблюдается тенденция, что люди запрыгивают во все эти мем-токены на начальной стадии их развития и испытывают фортуну. Получается своего рода лудомания. Тоже совсем недавно занимался такой активностью, но мне это быстро надоело.
