I remembered your project, when that long ago, I participated in a competition to create a meme.

Tell me, how are things in your development? Can your coin be mined?

It is POS only.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / General Advice On Trading Crypto on: March 05, 2018, 10:40:57 AM
Seeing all these posts of people suffering huge losses due to an attempt to trade on the blockchain assets market, I felt its time to shed some light on why that is.

Most people enter into the world of trading whit almost no background in finance, the main issue here is the lack of understanding in regards to risk management, basic and fundamental value analysis and the concepts of market cycles and trends.

All these aspects are absolutely essential when attempting to setup a long term viable trading strategy and not to fall into the 80% of traders who end up losing money. Yes you read that right, only 20% of traders are actually making money. That is comparably a very small number when looking into other industries. Its somewhat comparable to the startup economy, where less then 10% succeed.

There are three main areas which you need to focus on:

Emotional discipline

Don't fall into the trap of greed, stick to your plan and don't diverge from it, you'll make a mistake, and again and before you know it you are in deep red losses.

Risk management

How often are you able to make mistakes without falling too deep and not being able to recover? A 50% loss takes a 100% gain to recover from. Your absolute priority shouldn't be to make as much money as possible but to not lose it. Until you figure out a sustainable path of creating an Alpha (profits). A good rule of thumb is don't risk more than 1 % of your capital into a single trade. This allows you to bet wrong 10 times in a row and still being able to recover. This is especially important during your learning curve.

The trend is your friend

Stick to following the trend, don't bet against it also don't fall too short realising that the trend of the market has changed direction. This is where you'll probably will be making most of your losses. Even the very best traders often fail here, they trade the trend for months and get complacent, then once the wind starts changing direction they keep stacking up losses as they continue to trade what they used to even tho markets are changing. Be aware once this happens and lower your position size to transition into a new mind set. DON'T BECOME COMPLACENT!

Hope this is some helpful advice to all the newbies here!

All the best and safe trading!
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Cardano a good investment? on: February 26, 2018, 11:35:09 AM
i bought a bunch it at $0.4 it yielded nicely but dropped in the past week. what would you recommend i'll do keep holding it or let it go with a small profit?

It wouldn't be smart to sell at a loss, so if you're looking for profits, wait until the next pump and sell it.

As of now, Cardano is an overvalued vaporware, it doesn't even have a finishing product so there's no reason to have a $10 billion market cap. Anyone buying in ADA is just buying dreams and hopes. If you want to hold it, either wait for another pump in the market to sell, or hold it until 2020 which is the date their roadmap states that everything should be done.

Thats horrible advice IMO.

You lock up capital PLUS take huge risk that it might not pump even close to previous highs. The project could easily fail due to the huge technical risks and then it won't pump at all.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The next Bitcoin adoption wave, where do you see it? on: February 26, 2018, 11:30:51 AM
How about some renewed interest in Russia? I have no idea how large their influence would be on a global scale, but I do think it's possible that we'll see more adoption there.
Putin recently called for regulations of crypto, but without prohibiting them.


I'm curious to see what other people think about this...

I am not sure, but I think people overestimate Russia, I do agree however that India and maybe even china could be a catalyst.

Also, thinking about it, all these government "ICOs" by Venezuela are a very good sign I think. As any exchange can list the currency and allow people to convert these worthless tokens to better ones say, Bitcoin. Thus opening the gate for the whole population to adopt this new technology.

Thinking that many governments won't realise this when launching these new "E-Currencies".
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The next Bitcoin adoption wave, where do you see it? on: February 26, 2018, 10:48:00 AM
So I have been thinking about this for some time now, we saw a huge wave of new adopters last year, mainly private people buying through say Coinbase, Bitfinex and Bitstamp. We also saw an increase in demand from South Korea and Japan.

So the question is, what is the next phase in the adoption curve?

Some speculate that we'll see ETFs being approved and thus allow pension funds and major institutional money to flow into Bitcoin, others say we'll see governments buying into Bitcoin triggering a financial arms race.

We are going to see different blockchains for different use cases this also applies to anonymity / confidentiality.

Something we might see are dedicated decentralised services designed to mix Bitcoins. We have had existing ones but these have been centralised and often shut down by governments. BTC-e for example was involved in these kinds of activities and have been taken down by the FBI some time ago.
9  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: What is the best way to create a new crypto currency? on: February 12, 2018, 05:27:00 PM
I guess I have a few questions...

1)  Are some platforms better or more trustworthy for creating new crypto currencies?  Any recommendations?

2)  I want this currency to have a fixed circulating supply.  Does this mean that my coin should not be mineable?  (I don't really know how mining works).  Any recommendations?

3)  My coin will mainly function as a currency.  I was going to use the ETH20 protocol because hardware wallets seem to easily support it.  Would there be any advantage to using a different protocol?

4)  I'd like to eventually get listed on Bittrex, Poloniex, etc.  Does this mean I need to avoid certain coin creation platforms?  Any recommendations?


You'll be better off using BTC or ETH, if you are just going to use it as a currency. Liquidity is the most important aspect of a currency, its useless without it. So go with the one with the most liquidity.

Problems? We need greater exchange competition.
11  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: is it possible to create a new blockchain and let it act like middleman? on: February 12, 2018, 05:24:23 PM
Hello there. im writing a new idea. need to ask advice.

this is my questions,

is it possible to create a new blockchain to hold transaction for 2 party?

example: lets call this new blockchain, BANKCOIN. you have BTC want want ETH.

what you will do is, create a rules, say, input 1 btc and want 10eth. the blockchain will create a temporary bitcoin wallet and eth wallet,

you will deposit your bitcoin to this newly created btc wallet owned by BANKCOIN. once BTC deposit, a contract will be created.

and then someone else will complete your transaction by depositing 10 eth to this contract.

automatically you will receive ETH, and this guy will receive BTC, sent automatically by the BANKCOIN blockchain contract.

This already exists, its called atomic swaps. Also, look up the "0x" ETH token.
12  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin or gold? on: February 12, 2018, 05:22:45 PM
This is an old topic, and the answer is always the same: bitcoin for investments, gold for safety.
Please note that gold's value never changes, what changes is the value of the paper money...

This will eventually turn around, until then I'd stick to a equal diversification across both.
13  Economy / Economics / Re: Decentralized Exchanges - The Next Frontier on: February 12, 2018, 05:21:05 PM
Before "The Pirate Bay" shut down, there was talk of hosting micro servers hosting files inside drones that were built to stay in the air for prolonged periods of time in an effort to escape regulation and government shut downs. I could imagine someone hosting a crypto exchange in a similar manner. Maybe host a crypto exchange on a boat or island in international waters where theoretically there are no governing bodies as no single nation has "jurisdiction" over the territory.

I'm certain there are many loopholes which might be exploited. Given the crackdowns on silk road(Ross Ulbricht aka Dread Pirate Roberts), alpha bay, megaupload(Kim Dot Com), pirate bay, ninja video(if anyone remembers them) and others. Somehow I doubt anyone will go that far.

It would be cool if someone was that crazy though. I wish I had the resources. I probably wouldn't do it but if the right loophole could be found--it is possible to set up a deregulated(decentralized?) crypto exchange, in theory.

Google has floating servers, located in international waters, not really subject to any specific jurisdiction.

Or you could just encrypt all of the internet communication. Tor is slowly getting there, but we'll need faster computers or more efficient encryption in order to make this a reality.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: The dream of getting rich with bitcoins on: February 11, 2018, 02:58:45 PM
Most people who made millions here, they made them because they wanted much more than just the financial reward, they believed in the freedom given by the blockchain technology.

Going into bitcoin only to make money will lead you down a road of misery.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Are Airdrops Profitable? on: February 07, 2018, 09:09:36 AM
Alvalor is going to airdrop to Ethereum holders very soon. (better said have already)
The snapshot was taken on dec. 24. 2017.

Anyone with more then 1ETH holding is eligible to claim your TVAL tokens.

Now here comes the interesting part, actually only the fist 5% who claim the tokens actually get them as well.
And it gets even better, we utilise a LOG10 distribution function to give 10x proportionally more tokens to the lower mass.
Meaning imagine if 1 ETH gets you  1000 TVAL, well then 10 ETH only gets you 2000TVAL.
The impact is the greatest for the average holder.

If this caught your interest, follow our project here:

We are committed to solve the global blockchain scalability challenge!

Financial market legend and 19th-century banker Nathan Rothschild once allegedly declared...

"The time to buy is when there's blood in the streets."

As the story goes, Rothschild used this contrarian approach to amass a fortune.

Did you already swap the coins?
I checked my ethereum address. I didn't get any alvalor.

It's coming soon.

Tokens have now been distributed to everyone.  Smiley
