Just share your experience and earnings with friends and family. Some will be inspired to invest, help them if they face any problem.

I am happy to hear that Goldman Sachs has decided to explore crypto. It shows that the foundation is strong.

In addition, possible alts joining same bounties.

I do not see anything in merit summary ? Can you tell me about how can I get old data  ?
24  Other / Meta / Re: Friends just hacked account in BT on: July 20, 2018, 08:42:51 AM
You can ask your friend to get the account locked by clicking  the email sent to his original email on change of email. Then he can get it unlocked by contacting a mod. Compare which route will take less time.

How can one know this without trying both routes ? Staff can tell better.
25  Other / Meta / Re: Edit: My hacked account was used for merit abuse by this user: bgpsq on: July 20, 2018, 08:40:07 AM
Normally I wouldn't tag somebody like this, because I'd be suspicious that the purpose was to just dump the merit out of spite--not necessarily to give it to a specific person.  However the receiving account used it to rank up, and that's good evidence that it was sent intentionally.  That account might be an alt, but the merit might even have been sold, who knows.

What other factors do you consider before making the final decision  ? Is there some standard guideline to be followed by all DT members ?
26  Other / Meta / Re: How many Posts are limit for a day? on: July 20, 2018, 08:21:08 AM
Are you talking about activity? If so the limit is what you're eligible for. For example if you just started, then the activity limit is 14 on that day. When the next activity time comes, it will be 28. And two weeks after that day, it will be 42 and so on.

He was talking about number of posts allowed in a day and has already got the answer.

Op, you should lock this thread.
27  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [for merit] Talk about the Bitcoin port on: July 20, 2018, 08:19:09 AM
I'm a bit surprised no one answered this by now  Cheesy

Ports 0-1023 (inclusive) are restricted ports, reserved for the root user access only. These are for things such as HTTP/HTTPS, email servers, TCP, FTP, etc. where security is much more important.  Essentially if you want to use some other service or do testing for your own server, you use one of the higher number ports. I know that the Node.js default for example, is 3000, as it is for some other web-dev related frameworks too. Bitcoin uses port 8333.

An inbound connection is when another computer connects to your computer/server, while an outbound connection is where your computer is connecting to a different computer or server. If you're running a Bitcoin node for example, you allow inbound connections on port 8333 so that other nodes can connect to you. Similarly, those nodes will allow inbound connections on that port on their computer so you can have an outbound connection to them.

To add to this, opening ports is not compulsory.

However, by opening it, you are providing more connection opportunities to nodes available.
28  Other / Meta / Re: Disable signatures/bounties til a user reaches full member status. on: July 20, 2018, 08:15:01 AM
All signatures should be disabled irrespective of the rank. Let us have some meaningful discussions here then.
29  Other / Meta / Re: Security bounties on: July 20, 2018, 08:09:26 AM
Bullshit offer.
If you are sincere in solving any security breach, you should seek paid professionals.

All big companies like FB, Google take the same route even after they have paid professionals hired full time for this work. Users can be the best judge especially for new features.
30  Other / Meta / Re: Suggestions to improve bitcointalk.org on: July 20, 2018, 08:05:05 AM
The forum would be a much better place if this proposal would be implemented. Especially the limiting of merits. So frustrated to see that abusers got promoted from Jr. to Full member in 2 days with merits that sender didn't even earn but got by default.

Those are mainly alts in my opinions. Someone mentioned that it is low rank members involved in merit abuse the most. But where are those merits coming from ? Basically, those who got merits by default can make new accounts and promote them to higher ranks easily.
31  Other / Meta / Re: Showing I merited 3 people 2 days ago but I never even visited those threads.. on: July 20, 2018, 08:02:42 AM
Many such cases are being reported here. Is there any other hack or some kind of bug affecting the forum ?
32  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why I do not panic when the market falls on: July 19, 2018, 07:49:33 AM
Main reason for panic is that people do not do their research. Thus they get scared with little price movements.
33  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Top 3 coins in 2020? on: July 12, 2018, 05:40:43 PM
These will be Bitcoin, ETH and Ripple only. 2 years is very short duration for any other coin to come and take their place.
34  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Who will be the new king on: July 12, 2018, 05:24:13 PM
None of he current coins can replace BTC or ETH. May be in future we have some coin with some unique features capable  of doing that.
35  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is it risky to buy not top 100 crypto currencies? on: July 12, 2018, 04:26:51 PM
The risk is increase in case of such coins but so is the reward. Choose after proper research and diversify.
36  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin has no competition on: July 12, 2018, 04:12:04 PM
Other coins can replace bitcoins but it is going to take a lot of time. If we talk only about returns, some coins already give better returns.
37  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How foolish are people who invest in Bitcoin? on: July 12, 2018, 03:50:06 PM
You keep counting these zeroes while I and others make real money ? Now tell who is foolish.
38  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: NEO Could Surpass Bitcoin By The Year 2019 on: June 26, 2018, 02:55:44 PM
That is too optimistic. I have nothing against NEO but it cannot replace bitcoins in next 50 years, leave aside 2019.
39  Economy / Economics / Re: its not about how much you invested, its when you should invest? on: June 20, 2018, 07:02:25 PM
I do not agree to this. In my opinion, amount of money invested is also very much important especially at current price levels.
40  Economy / Speculation / Re: Price manipulation on: June 20, 2018, 06:52:47 PM
Manipulation is possible in crypto. But I think that it is least in case of bitcoins, most of the bitcoins is with early adopters only.
