Now a day several airdrops are profitable and same are scam. But if you look in to a good airdrops you can say that airdops is great and profitable. I have known someone he could earn let I say big amount of money compared to his monthly salary and it takes in just 1 month. I think it is seriously he get those amount in airdops so I believe that even an airdrops have small amount now a day I think it is good always because if participating more airdops you can earn more profits.

143  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? on: April 24, 2018, 05:31:13 AM
Hello I made some research for you! I

Don't be lazy to read this! Hope you like it.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

We Look at The Possible Candidates


Bitcoin was conceived as a communal project. Designed as an open-source software and released to the public in 2009, Bitcoin was conceived with openness in mind. Functioning on an open ledger that is accessible to the public, Bitcoin is an open-source project. But for all its openness, one grand mystery remains unsolved:

Who Created Bitcoin and Who exactly is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Satoshi was heavily involved with the Bitcoin community, and collaborated with them in order to modify the underlying bitcoin protocol. After two years of involvement, Nakamoto handed the reins to Gavin Andresen, and seized involvement with the Bitcoin project in December of 2010. Then, in the Spring of 2011, Nakamoto returned to leave a final message, stating in a post that he had “moved on to other things,” and that Bitcoin was “in good hands with Gavin [Andresen] and everyone.” That was the last the world heard of the secretive Bitcoin creator.

The mystery behind Nakamoto’s identity has only grown, as the Bitcoin community eagerly speculates who it could potentially be. Satoshi Nakamoto claims to be Japanese, born on April 5, 1975. It is unknown whether Nakamoto is male or female, or whether Nakamoto is even a single person or a group of individuals.

Is He British?

While Nakamoto’s identity remains unknown, This has not stopped enthusiasts from investigating his background and drawing up conclusions. Nakamoto’s use of perfect English in his posts and his publication of the White Paper has raised skepticism as to his Japanese origin. Furthermore, his occasional use of British English in the code and comments has fueled speculation that he is a native English speaker of commonwealth origin. Additionally, Stefan Thomas, a Swiss coder and active member in the Bitcoin community, graphed the time stamps of Nakamoto’s more than 500 posts, showing his or her complete absence of posts between midnight am and 6 am Greenwich Time, further informing investigators as to his potential whereabouts.

Nick Szabo

To date, there are several potential individuals suspected of being the mysterious Bitcoin creator. One of the first suggestions was Nick Szabo, a decentralized currency enthusiast who published a paper on “bit gold” considered to be a precursor to the first cryptocurrency. Running a reverse textual analysis, internet researcher Skye Grey found dozens of unique phrases that linked Szabo’s writing style to that of the original White Paper. This evidence is only circumstantial, however, and Szabo has repeatedly denied that he is the creator of Bitcoin.

Nakamoto

Another possibility is a Japanese American man living in California, named Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto, birth name Satoshi Nakamoto. First brought up in a March 2014 Newsweek article, Leah McGrath Goodman pointed to Nakamoto’s training as a physicist at Cal Poly University in Pomona and libertarian background as potential indicators of his identity. Her biggest piece of evidence was his response to a question regarding Bitcoin: “I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it. It’s been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.” This led to a wild media frenzy, which even included a car chase. However, in a later interview, he recanted his previous position, stating that he had misunderstood the reporter’s question, thinking it was related to his previous classified work as a military contractor.

Hal Finney

Hal Finney is another potential candidate to be the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. Finney was a pre-bitcoin cryptographic pioneer and was only the second person – after Nakamoto himself – to make use of the software, file bug reports, and suggest improvements.

Furthermore, he was the first to ever receive Bitcoin, stating in an interview that “ [he] was the recipient of the first bitcoin transaction, when Satoshi sent ten coins to [him] as a test.”

Forbes journalist Andy Greenberg speculated after requesting aid from writing analysis consultancy Juola & Associates that Greenberg may have been the ghostwriter for Satoshi Nakamoto. Further adding to the speculation that Finney was involved with the creation of Bitcoin was his correspondence with the aforementioned Nick Szabo, and the fact that he lived only blocks apart from Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto. At the time of his death on August 28, 2014, only circumstantial evidence pointed to Hal Finney being the original Satoshi Nakamoto.


Craig Wright

Yet another possible contender to be Satoshi Nakamoto is the Australian academic, computer engineering expert, and entrepreneur, Craig Wright. In early November of 2015, Gizmodo received an anonymous email from an individual stating that not only did he know that Craig Wright was the creator of Bitcoin, but that he had also worked for him. On December 9, hours after Wired certified that Wright was indeed Nakamoto, the Australian Federal Police raided his home, and afterwards stating the “[the] matter is unrelated to recent media reporting regarding the digital currency Bitcoin.” Afterwards, Wright deleted his internet presence until May of 2016, when he stepped forward and revealed himself on Twitter as the creator of the digital currency Bitcoin, and claimed he had the proof to back up his statement. Then, amid a torrent of skepticism, Wright retracted his statement and did not offer the “extraordinary proof” he claimed to have, stating that he did “not have the courage” to prove his identity.

Satoshi Nakamoto Net Worth

In an era where information is widespread, Satoshi Nakamoto has managed to maintain his identity a complete secret. So why is uncovering Nakamoto’s identity so important? If Nakamoto is indeed a single individual, then he or she owns approximately 5% of the world’s Bitcoin supply, placing him or her as the 52nd richest person in the world as of December 12th14.

The implications of this wealth are considerable, beyond even the real world implications. If Satoshi Nakamoto were ever to sell the rumored 980,000 Bitcoins in his or her possession ( currently worth over $16 billion at today’s price, as of 5th Jan 2018 ), the price of Bitcoin could potentially become more volatile than it already is.

The Scaling Debate

Furthermore, there is significant debate as to the future of Bitcoin. Heated discussions have arisen due to some of the growing pains surrounding Bitcoin, particularly the issue of how to deal with an increase in transaction volume in the Bitcoin network. As the number of blocks increases, the Bitcoin network runs the risk of becoming overloaded. One side of the debate wants to fundamentally change the Bitcoin node by increasing the block size, in order to allow the system to process transactions more quickly. The other side of the debate sees this as a betrayal of the original concept behind Bitcoin, arguing that this would lead to increased centralization. Identifying Bitcoin’s true creator would create more certainty and could potentially lay down the following steps in Bitcoin’s ever growing development.

Conclusion

Ultimately, identifying Bitcoin’s creator may be a quixotic endeavor. His or her complete silence since the Spring of 2011 means it is likely we will never hear from them again. Nevertheless, Bitcoin, the open source digital currency created nearly a decade ago, will continue to in spite of this mystery. The Bitcoin community will be forced to coexist with the enigma that is Satoshi Nakamoto, for the better or for the worst.

144  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is owning bitcoin a crime? on: April 22, 2018, 08:37:52 AM
I think no but it depends on your country if they accused bitcoin user as a criminal but for me if you are a bitcoin user probably it is not a crime...  As long you are working legal why not having it...  Bitcoin is accused as a crime because it is not legal in your government... It is not a scam nor crime it depends on the user but we cant take the fact that some people used it in illegal way that's why bitcoin has a negative impact in other countries... Just try it... The experience you will get here better and great....

'Bitcoin'

* Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made with no middle men – meaning, no banks!

* Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator.

Read more about
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

'Blockchain'

*A blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. Constantly growing as ‘completed’ blocks (the most recent transactions) are recorded and added to it in chronological order, it allows market participants to keep track of digital currency transactions without central recordkeeping. Each node (a computer connected to the network) gets a copy of the blockchain, which is downloaded automatically.


Read more: Blockchain Definition | Investopedia https://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/blockchain.asp#ixzz5DHuH8plM





For me the difference of Bitcoin and Blockchain?  Bitcoin is a kind of currency that use thru virtual transaction it has no concrete form of structures but bitcoin has a value that recognizes as one of digital currency. While the Blockchain it is kind of peer to peer systematic way of transaction using internet and without a single servers means it is decentralized.

So Bitcoin needs a Blockchain yo perform its function without a Blockchain Bitcoin never existed. (vice versa)

Hi, Whats the best way to convert Bitcoin into real money
As  i from South Asian countries  where Bitcoin is banned and illegal
Than whats the best and effective way to cash my bitcoin into real money ?

  Smiley Please do advise me,Thank you  Smiley



We know bitcoin in virtual form of currency that haven't real cash but with a higher value or price. Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency that have a highest market cap and supply. If you can get bitcoin in so many ways like buying thru bitcoin or you can earn other altcoin (alternate cryptocurrency) and converting it into bitcoin by using some legit exchange.

And now here is the question how can we convert bitcoin in real money.
Well you can makes bitcoin as real money by converting it into real cash there was many ways and process to do it. Like here in our place you need to transfer your bitcoin in what you called coinbase this is kind of site and sometimes an apps for Android phone that accept Bitcoin and this coinbase are already accepted by some banks here. So you can now converted your bitcoin in real money I think in your country is also know this way so you should try this to experience how to convert bitcoin into fiat money.


Thanks.

What's up with my posts getting vanished not being deleted and me receiving a warning about that.Any other person encountering that??I didn't break any forum rules too

It is highly likely your post/thread is in the wrong section kindly check which section you are posting so your post will not get obliterated.

The good way to do is never post a not relevant idea for any forum's topic. Do not repeat what others post and do not spam because spamming is prohibited in this forum. Always check your post because maybe you are made  posting not connected to the thread. And alsi you should make post with a proper manner because posting a personal matter will cause to remove you post.

But don't be discouraged it is normal for us as a begginer instead use this as a motivation to learn more and to share your ideas and thoughts to help others in this forum.


Thank you.
149  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Bitcoin is better than other coins? on: April 18, 2018, 12:58:33 PM
It has slow transactions and the fees are high, and it is the cryptocurrency frontier.

What do you think will realistically will take Bitcoins nr1 spot in the future? Bitcoin Cash maybe?  Huh



Bitcoin is better that other cryptocurrency because it is the first cryptocurrency that used blockchain technology. And it holda the highest market cap in the market that's why there's so many people would like to choose this as an investment. It is the most popular crypto that people used to exchange and to transact payments that accent bitcoin.

I think you're a really lucky guy Wink. Received 6 Merit from the same member in 11 March in few minutes for old posts don't really helpful from Feb. Beside you and creepyjas are being in the same bounty campaign. LOL

Don't know how other people think about this case but I feel it's really shady. Grin. Maybe DT member should take a look at this case


As i post above, this 2 account is from one person. He farms account.
creepyjas (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;u=959979) is Sr.member and has 250 merit. But he only give away 9 merit? 6 of that to Woterry? His merit status here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=merit;u=959979
He is not like a person who willing to give away merit to who deserve it. His last post statistic show he always stay in ANN Announcements (Altcoins) board.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=959979;sa=showPosts;start=20

Like I said, feel free to check our IPs. I think a friend meriting high quality posts from a friend is better than buying merits or creating multiple accounts to get one right? Feel free to acuse. I’m not aware that it’s in the rules stating “Helping a friend is not allowed here”.


I agree with you, this is what I said before if everyone do not follow the rule and regulation of giving merit for this forum the merit system are will become useless. Because there are members trying their best way to get merit while the others are not doing fair. And because of that many of our bitcointalk users are experiencing difficulties.

We hope that all members here dot not act as a blind we know tthat you already know this kind event but you choose to be silent. All of us are have the right to estate our ideas and thoughts dont be appraid to tell what are you want to tell.
We Are Hoping this merit system will change because in this forum they have corrupt people.

with new bct update to become a full member need 100 merits and i still have only 10 merits. What is the best way to earn merits

Now?! it is not easy to earn merit, because merit is so mysterious. There was a conspiracy behind the merit. However if you would like to earn merit you just give your best to create a amazing post for you to earn merit. But for you should make a post whether its a quality or not as long you learn more with this forum. Do not expect to be rewarded a merit always the important is you making a good post and try your best all the time.  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Hello welcome to World of criptocurrency! Actually I am also new here so that I have noting more to share.  However base on my study and asking other old members here and I suggest to you joining in some bounty campaigns is a good thing to starting point as a begginer like us.
154  Other / Meta / Re: My Posts Getting Deleted on: April 15, 2018, 03:21:34 PM
Hello, I have a new account here and have made 1 post reply, and 2 (or so?) posts, both of the posts got like 1 or 2 replies but then they dissapeared, I'm wondering if there is some rule I broke or what I have to do to maintain a post that I make? not sure what the deal is, thanks


Hello I think that scenario is necessary if you post or reply but after a few hours you notice that your post gonna be disappearing. Probably that situation was being deleted or sometimes if your post or reply was read by the global moderator and your post had a personal message it will be remove by the moderator. But that things is ordinary if your post was deleted don't blame our global moderator because they are also do their respective job.

Thank you.

Hi



Bitcoin is great invention of man's creative minds. Bitcoin known as the fisrt criptocurrency that used a blockchain technology. It gives an opportunity to do a lot of things as fast are we never expect. Like bitcoin is used to transact everything on our world today, bitcoin helps people to earn more profits in terms of bounty campaign, through investing and trading. For more people trusting in Bitcoin they know this is the key for to become rich.
156  Economy / Economics / Re: 1Bitcoin as a gift from someone on: April 13, 2018, 10:11:32 AM
If you be given a gift of 1BTC by someone and for you this amount is already something you did not expect. Will you sell your bitcoin right away and convert it into cash or just keep it for a better price to come or invest it or what?

If it is mine i will hold it till the price gets double or triple of its price now. Or just hold it as an asset.

 
For me if someone gave me 1BTC i will keep it because anything that others gave to is important.
157  Other / Meta / Re: Merit requirement for jr.member on: April 13, 2018, 01:06:47 AM
Hi,

I thought merit would help with the spam but i still see as much crap from newbies as before.
Took a look at marketplace and found out why! Jr. member accounts are being sold as well. And for third world the sum is probably quite decent.

Maybe Theymos was to kind, and there should be 5 merit as requirement for jr.member.

If you cant earn any merit your probably should not even be jr. member. It is hard to get merit, but 5 merit should be possible for most people over time.
Unless they only post meaningless shitposts and in bounty threads off course but cant say i feel sorry for thoose  Tongue



People are not contented what blessings came on themselves, sometimes people abused opportunities given to them. Like here the forum some members disregard the rules and regulations they do not follow properly they played unfair to other members. That's why Members sacrificing to earn merit in a good way, we hope this scenario vanish we hope others play with in a good ways that others deserves.
158  Economy / Economics / Re: Earnings without risks for beginners on: April 12, 2018, 04:58:34 AM
HI! If you feel that you have little experience or just want to get a lot of different crypto currency without an investment, then you are in AirDrop projects or Bounty.
You can read about AirDrop and how to receive them safely.

Looked at the other AirDrop channel (top) and there is such a slag. Unclear information, half of AirDrop unchecked and fake (no tokens will not be listed), a lot of advertising and scams. That's directly felt that they do not care about the reputation and the subscribers. Simply squeeze the loot. I think that you can not do this. When I created my project, I decided that this garbage will not suffer and my channel will be oriented to quality and to subscribers. In my channel, I myself first of all read, study, check, add to my purse, and only then I spread

Try to find different resources for this or as an option, join my new and developing AirDrop channel in telegrams - https://t.me/cryptoqraf

There by the way, the first post (at the top) tells in detail how to learn how to effectively get AirDrop. My channel selects only proven and safe airdrops, and also here you will not see a scam and bothersome advertising.
And see for yourself what kind of earnings you are more suitable for. Just do not forget before that it's good to study the topic.


As new member here I haven't more experience about on how to earn without taking a risk. As everybody said I think the best thing to say earn profit without risk, joining in a bounty campaign airdrops. There's so many ways to earn token including signature campaign, social media campaign, youtube channel and blogging, and also translating the announcement thread and whitepapers are highest possibilities of payment. After that if you have already received token you can now start for small investment and begin to trade.
159  Economy / Economics / Re: Can Bitcoin solve the worlds problem? on: April 11, 2018, 01:19:48 AM
you only made your question unreasonable wrong by first copying two paragraphs from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin and pasting them here!

your question is only the last line and it is vague at best. the world has a lot of problems, what do you have in mind that you want bitcoin solving?
bitcoin may or may not be able to solve it. for example is it the charge back scam that the merchants suffer worldwide? then yes bitcoin is solving that!
is it world hunger? then no bitcoin is not solving that!

Yes sir it is true! i was copied and pasted that here but I also restated that, because I want to give an example on how bitcoin in very important  and also I ask question if bitcoin can solve  the world problems.

I have no other intentions for maiking this phrase, you misinterpreted my question


I am actually asking a question! and I asking opinions and ideas  of others not for arguing.

Hope you understand me.

Thank you.

Hello everyone!


Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator. The network is peer-to-peer and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes through the use of cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009.

This invention of Satoshi Nakamoto incredibly stunning us, Bitcoin known as a revolutionary invention.

Can Bitcoin solve the worlds problem?
