"Wow, this upgrade is totally mind-blowing!  It's like Bitcoin leveling up to superhero status against nation state snooping! The old way, your ISP could sniff out your Bitcoin moves, but now, with v2 P2P protocol, it's all super-secret squirrel stuff.  Encrypting traffic and going all pseudorandom - that's some next-level ninja tech right there!  Love how Bitcoin keeps evolving, making it tough for the big players to mess around. Kudos to the devs!

Governments that banned cryptocurrencies are now unable to stop transactions from happening, giving people a chance to escape poverty and establish themselves in the middle class.

Latecomers who initially thought it was a scam are now regretting missed opportunities. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin offer economic leverage, and those with foresight who took the risk are now successful ambassadors with proven results.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What if Bitcoin Was the Only Cryptocurrency? on: May 07, 2023, 05:54:27 PM
It's an interesting thought experiment to consider what the cryptocurrency world would look like if Bitcoin was the only cryptocurrency. While it could potentially make adoption and regulation easier, it may also lead to a lack of innovation and the risk of heavy regulation by governments.

Would you prefer a world with only Bitcoin or do you appreciate the variety that exists in the cryptocurrency market currently?
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Has Taught Me to Dream Big on: May 07, 2023, 03:14:54 PM
It's inspiring to hear how Bitcoin has transformed your life and taught you to dream big. Your journey through various business ventures and financial hardships highlights the challenges that many people face in trying to achieve their goals.

The ups and downs of HYIPs and BOs can be a rollercoaster ride, but it's great to hear that you've found success and stability with Bitcoin. Being part of a supportive community can make all the difference, and I hope that you continue to learn and grow as a Bitcoin enthusiast.

Keep dreaming big and striving towards your goals with Bitcoin as a tool, the possibilities are endless.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The world and bitcoins: the matter of global acceptance on: May 07, 2023, 03:08:40 PM
I think your suggestions are valid and could help in boosting the reputation of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. While there are already some regulations and guidelines in place, the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies makes it difficult to fully regulate and monitor every project.

However, having a central institution with the responsibility of auditing, verifying, and tracking down scam projects could help in reducing the fear associated with cryptocurrencies and increasing global acceptance. It's important to note that this institution would need to work closely with other regulatory bodies and industry stakeholders to ensure a coordinated approach to tackling issues related to cryptocurrency scams.
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: S19 XP Questions (Reliability + Heat Sink Type) on: May 07, 2023, 02:36:18 PM
I'm not entirely sure about the miner switching off during power cuts, but it's worth noting that Antminers are generally built to handle high humidity environments. However, you may want to look into getting a backup power supply to ensure uninterrupted mining.

Regarding the S19 XP, I believe it has individual soldered heat sinks, which may make it more difficult to install custom water cooling boards. You could potentially look into other models that have bolted heat sinks, such as the S19 Pro, to make installation easier.

Also, keep in mind that custom modifications can potentially void the manufacturer's warranty, so proceed with caution. Good luck with your mining project!
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Montana bitcoin enthusiasts are now protected by the law. on: May 07, 2023, 10:07:30 AM
It's great news to see that Montana is taking a positive stance towards bitcoin and cryptocurrency. The passing of a bill protecting at-home mining, preventing discriminatory utility rates, and exempting crypto used as payment from additional taxes is a significant step forward for the state.

It's possible that politicians are realizing the potential benefits of embracing cryptocurrency and are therefore speaking in support of it during their campaigns. Regardless of their motivations, the fact remains that Montana's bitcoin enthusiasts can now operate without fear of legal repercussions.

It's encouraging to see lawmakers recognizing the value of this emerging technology and taking steps to promote its use. Let's hope that other states and countries follow suit and adopt similar measures to protect and promote the use of cryptocurrency.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin the second stage in the path to a central global currency? on: May 07, 2023, 09:59:56 AM
The idea that Bitcoin was created by bankers to test and develop a digital payment service they could control is a controversial one.

While it's true that centralized digital currencies are being explored, Bitcoin's decentralization and limited supply make it a poor fit for a global currency. Additionally, the assertion that the European Union is an unelected body is false as its members are appointed by elected officials.

It's important to be cautious of conspiracy theories and stick to verifiable facts when discussing global currency trends.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin mixing is NOT money laundering, per se on: May 06, 2023, 06:18:19 PM
It's important to clarify that Bitcoin mixing does not necessarily equate to money laundering.

While it can be used to conceal the origins of money obtained through illegal activities, mixing is not a money laundering service in and of itself. Mixing coins can be a conscious decision made by individuals who value their privacy, whether they are involved in criminal activities or not.

It's crucial to respect individuals' privacy and recognize the importance of privacy-enhancing techniques. Remember that privacy and money laundering are not synonymous, and privacy is a fundamental human right.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Re: What makes Binance stay strong despite all FUD ? on: May 06, 2023, 04:12:57 PM
It's true that Binance has been facing a lot of scrutiny and accusations lately, but their response to the US Senator's inquiry shows that they are working to clarify any misconceptions. Binance's success could be attributed to their strong user base, global reach, and diversified offerings.

It's also worth noting that their Binance US platform has been performing well, despite the regulatory challenges. The stability of BNB's price could be a reflection of the market's confidence in Binance's ability to weather the storm. Ultimately, time will tell how these challenges will affect Binance's long-term success, but for now, they seem to be holding strong.

Use a QR code generator to create QR codes of the public keys, and then print those codes on paper. This will save you from having to write out the long strings of characters by hand, and also reduces the risk of mistyping.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: US Congress Meeting On Bitcoin Adoption on: May 06, 2023, 02:05:25 PM
The US Congress meeting on Bitcoin adoption is a crucial step towards greater acceptance and adoption of cryptocurrencies. With industry officials, senate members, and other official delegates coming together, the summit will focus on how to engage various stakeholders and individuals to understand what Bitcoin offers to the economy. This will lead to further actions and necessary steps for Bitcoin adoption.

It's not just the US; even Mexican Senator Indira and Samson Mow are taking a session to discuss the need for Bitcoin adoption, not just in Mexico but worldwide. With El Salvador and the Central African Republic already adopting Bitcoin, this meeting could lead to more countries and nations joining the movement.

It's a positive development for the crypto industry, and it's great to see policymakers taking a more active interest in Bitcoin and its benefits. As more countries and businesses embrace cryptocurrencies, we may see a significant shift in how we think about money and the global economy.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How useful is Bitcoin to the youth? on: May 06, 2023, 01:57:08 PM
Bitcoin can be useful to the youth in various ways. It can provide an opportunity for young people to invest and save for their future, without requiring large sums of money.

Additionally, Bitcoin can be used for peer-to-peer transactions, making it a convenient payment option for those who prefer digital transactions. It also offers a level of financial autonomy and privacy that may appeal to young people who value these principles.

However, it's important to note that Bitcoin can be volatile and risky, and it's important to do proper research and exercise caution before investing. Overall, Bitcoin can be a useful tool for the youth, but it should be used responsibly and with proper knowledge of the risks involved.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I have 2 questions that bother me on: May 06, 2023, 08:50:06 AM
1/ The price of a token at launch is usually determined by market demand and supply. During the pre-sale stage, the project team can set a price for the token, but once it hits the market, it will be determined by market participants buying and selling the token on exchanges. It's important to keep in mind that the price can be volatile and can fluctuate based on a variety of factors, such as news, market sentiment, and investor demand.

2/ Buying a token as soon as it is listed can be risky, as the price can be volatile and may not reflect the true value of the project. It's important to do your own research and assess the fundamentals of the project before investing. It's also important to set a target price and stick to it, as emotions can often get in the way of sound investment decisions.
20  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Intel Discontinues Bitcoin Mining Chip Series on: May 06, 2023, 08:43:25 AM
The decision comes as the company focuses on investing in its IDM 2.0 program.

While Intel will continue to support its Blockscale customers, it will no longer take new orders after October 20th, 2023, and the last product will be shipped no later than April 20th, 2024. This marks a significant shift in the Bitcoin mining industry, as one of the world's leading chipmakers withdraws from the market.
