1  Other / Off-topic / Re: Can anti gamblers accept cash from gamblers when they're in dire financial needs on: May 29, 2024, 11:33:17 PM
I've seen worse some people would even do something just to get through a dire financial situation.
There are some who sold their body organs in order to get money, there are other's who would let go of their pride and do something that they wouldn't normally do.
I've seen people change because of their financial problem, from being a honor student to something that they shouldn't be doing just to get money to study or continue to live.
So it is clear to me that when a dire situation or they are in financial crisis they would take it no matter what, unless they would find other way to get some cash.
2  Economy / Economics / Re: Work From Home or The "Laptop Class" is Immoral or Not? on: May 29, 2024, 11:14:47 PM
Why would working from home or laptop class be immoral?
I don't see anything wrong with it unless you are cheating on your employer, sleeping or slacking cause you know that you could do it since you are at home and your boss or employer couldn't see you.
But for me there is nothing wrong with working from home or having online class, it just shows that they are willing to do their job no matter what, some people thinks that working from home is easy but it isn't the case for everyone.
There are parents who decide to work from home in order to watch their kids at the same time, so it isn't easy for them, working, cooking and taking care of kids they are multi tasking cause they want their child/children to have a better future, and create some memories while they are growing.

Which altcoins are we even talking here? there are so many altcoins in the market, and I think most of them has already experience a price drop.
It is great to buy more since alt season hasn't started yet, and some are still dropping low.

The real question for those big gainers is how long would they survive?
They might be performing well right now and gaining more than Bitcoin, but could they survive when they fall down? could they bounce back like Bitcoin?
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Greediness or Addiction -which one is more disastrous? on: May 29, 2024, 05:34:11 PM

However, both can possibly happen in our lives when we can't control our gambling habit anymore. I prefer not the two but in this situation, I prefer to be just addicted rather than be greedy

Gamble Responsibly...

You will never become addicted if you are not greedy because addiction always start from a little greediness that intensifies the more you feel satisfaction on gambling.

So saying that you prefer being addicted rather than being greedy is wrong since greed is part of an addiction but you can become partially greedy without being addicted due to the heat of the moment which most of casual gambler experiencing whenever they experiencing terrible loss on some of their game.

Iím always being greedy when gambling but Iím making sure that this greediness always end after I gamble so that I will not crave for more.
I agree with this greediness is start of gambling addiction,  so I guess addiction would be more disastrous.
For me there are some greedy gamblers who would or could stop their greed when they are done gambling, but a gambling addict would always be drawn back to gambling cause it is their addiction, they couldn't control their self so they would try everything just to continue or go back on gambling.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: What would you do if you are loged out from your Sportsbet app after wining? on: May 29, 2024, 05:04:23 PM
I don't know if such thread has been created already but there was a news that was trending some weeks ago about a man who won #14million Naira which is equivalent to $10k and was logged out of his sport bet account, he tried severally to access his money but didn't Work out. he sent the Sport betting site a message but didn't get a positive feedback so he had to come out publicly to explain his predicament on air. Below is the link Man logged out of his Sportybet account seeks access to his N14m

My question is has anyone of you been in such situation before? And how were you able to handle such situation?
Never experienced it before, but if this would ever happen to me I would also contact the team and ask for assistance to gain access to my account again.
This is why I choose which site to gamble with my money, there are so many scam gambling sites nowadays.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is it worth to join airdrop? on: May 29, 2024, 12:53:05 PM
This is my first job in joining cryptocurrency specifically the bounty programs. As suggested by my friends that joining bounty program will let me earn reward tokens. However, seeing also an airdrop in the bounties altcoin section made me think of its worth of joining in airdrop. I came to a thread for airdrop and it seems that they are only requiring you to do simple task and you were able to get the tokens that they promised. Now i have the interest on them but i still have some doubts about it if is worthy to join airdrop. Do you have any idea guys or experience about its worth on joining airdrop?
Is it worth it to get the reward? doing simple task?
You should already know the answer if you are seeking to gain profit in crypto, it would always be worth it specially if it doesn't require much.
The chance that the project would pay their participant might be small, but at least there is still a chance to earn by doing simple task.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Should i buy more Catwifhat after getting free airdrop ? on: May 28, 2024, 11:40:02 PM
Base on my experience when receiving an airdrop it is better to avoid investing to gain more.
I tried it before the result of my greed would always be losing more rather than earning from those airdrops.
But I am only telling my experience, you should decide on your own it is your money your responsibility.
I am not against holding more than our rewards from airdrop, but I just want to stay safe now, everytime that I would receive an airdrop I would just stick to that amount.
9  Other / Politics & Society / Re: We Need More girls in Cryptocurrency Trading. on: May 28, 2024, 10:11:25 PM
There are many women out there in the world today! I think the level of difficulty to learn cryptocurrency is the reference for all women to enter the crypto currency   
It is also very difficult for those who have to save the private keys 🔑 because usually the women often forget to save her personal data I also always try to keep valuable to at home but sometimes if I often forget and in the crytocurrency market if I forget to save the private key it will be a disaster for us.
I don't get the point here, the title suggest that we need more girls in crypto space, but your statement says that they are forgetful so why would they be needed in crypto?
And I don't really think that gender matters in crypto, it is created for privacy and anonymity so what's the point of revealing the gender?
10  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Everything has changed on: May 28, 2024, 08:28:02 PM
I don't know whether what I'm feeling other people are feeling it or am just having this feeling based on the country where I'm located, or am feeling this way because of age and responsibility. Before now everything was easy for the rich , poor, and middle class, you can even be happy without having any money with you. But this time it seems different,  you can still have money but still their is is no inner joy. Now even the people around are not real and genuine but fake, can even betray for free. Is it that as the world is evolving people are changing too.
Having inner joy or enjoyment even when you have nothing really depends on us, our contentment, fun, enjoyment depends on how we would react on every situation.
It is true that there are so many fake friends or people who would act friendly cause they know they could use you and ignore you when they see that you are useless to them, but as I've said it all depends on how we would react.
You could enjoy have fun as long as you are with someone you love, it doesn't matter how many friends would betray or ignore you, you just need to be contented with what you have.
11  Other / Off-topic / Re: How do you deal with depression and anxiety? on: May 28, 2024, 05:43:08 PM
Most of the people in our society are always depressed about something, in this case what kind of activities do you do when you are depressed??
I used to hang out with my friends, listen to music or sing, watching movies or anime, playing online games together with my friends.
I know I am lucky enough to have friends who would be there when I need them the most, they were around me and support me when I was depressed.
But the best one for me is talking, letting out your feelings would lessen the heavy feelings that you have.
Sometimes it is not about advices but just an ear that is ready to listen would really help alot.
12  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Take Profits! Its important! on: May 28, 2024, 05:27:38 PM
This is what I usually forget even in gambling, so in the end I would always lose instead of gain.
I used to take profit in trading before, when my capital gains more than 10%, I would take it and move it into another crypto(reinvest), there are also circumstances where I would cash it out if I need extra money to spend.
It is also important to make a plan on when would you take profit and what would you do with that profit ahead of time.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Stop paying money to learn trading when you can learn it yourself on: May 28, 2024, 04:55:10 PM
~snip~

1. Learning on YouTube and other PDF resources online
2. Attending conferences and watching trading podcast
3. Find a mentor, whether offline or online. You may not be close to this person but always study his trade
4. Practice always and maintain consistency

Everything mentioned above seems very simple to those of us who want to learn trading. However, not everyone has the time to start learning slowly. That's why many people want to pay someone to teach or guide them in trading so they can fast their progress in learning. Paying money to learn trading is like investing in ourselves because it's similar to paying to learn piano or paying for a degree
Even if you pay you would still need to make time in order to listen and understand the lesson, the only difference is that when you pay you would have all the things ready for you unlike when you are DYOR, you need to search it all up.
It would all depend on each person, as you mention not everyone have time to learn there are also who doesn't have much to pay for it, that is why they are doing it on their own searching for free guide or book to learn trading.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Money addiction on: May 28, 2024, 12:49:20 PM

It's not money addiction, it's the need for money. You can't turn on your lights and gas if you have no money. We are slaves to work constantly because of the need to have money to live.

There are places where you don't need money but it would be in the most remote areas where the community lives in a slow lane.
I also think it is not addiction, but it would depend on how they would earn their money.
For me addiction is when they are bound to destroy their life, so if they are earning the right way or without illegal activities then it wouldn't be addiction, they are striving for a better life.
Honestly, if I could I would rather stay at remote areas to have simple life than to overwork myself.
15  Economy / Economics / Re: Would you prefer getting a loan for a startup or getting an investor? on: May 27, 2024, 11:06:14 PM
Investor would be the safer choice, business is so risky we don't even know if it would be successful or not, so it is better to be safe in finding investor at least the amount of money that you would risk would be lessen, unlike if you would take a loan for it.
If it succeed then the profit isn't much as like when you are the only one in the business, but you could always start a new one from your profit right away, unlike if you took a loan and it succeed you need to pay up first before starting up a new one not to mention the interest that would accumulate while paying it.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Exposure to bitcoin at young age on: May 27, 2024, 10:32:13 PM
How young exactly?

For a 5y old no way I'm gonna talk about blockchain fundamentals. For a 14 years old, it's a different story. Learning early on from a trustworthy source instead of finfluencers and scammers could be game-changing actually.
I agree, it would depend on how young we are talking.
If we are talking about young age that could grasp the idea or know the importance of money then it would be great for them, but for those who doesn't really care about it, then it would just be a waste of time.
Honestly when I started my crypto journey I met some young ones, teenager to be exact, those teenagers are still in school at the time but they are earning their own money in crypto and helping their parents financially through it.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Don't advice anyone to invest on Bitcoin if he doesn't have Alt. income on: May 27, 2024, 09:27:18 PM
I don't really give out advice to invest, I would rather tell them to save up in crypto rather than letting their excess money sit in their bank account.
I would also tell them the pros and cons of it, but I would never introduce crypto as a main source of income, if they would only rely on it, then they are risking their life on the line, not everyone could earn a stable income in trading and if it is their only money then it would be drained by their expenses.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Lunatic gamblers who says Airdrop rewards are free funds. on: May 27, 2024, 08:23:37 PM
There is absolutely no Source of income that is free but some of my Bitcoin investors friends who are as much gamblers would not want to agree to that.
Currently, there had been several airdrops projects ongoing which participants are earning crypto coins without investing of money but executing some tasks.

So some of my friends says such funds are free money so they are delighted dedicating it to be spent on gambling and when they lost it all, it would be easier to let go because they did not stress to get the money.
Meanwhile... This usually comes a huge amount of money beyond their normal gambling budgets.

To me, they can utilize these so called free money by adding it up to their Bitcoin portfolio or even used it to spend on necessary things instead of dedicating to lavish it on gambling.
You are right there is no free money, they executed a task so there for it is their reward or payment for participating, even though they didn't invest money they did invest time.
But you also forgot that it is their earning they are free to do as they please to their money.
It is not just for those who earns in airdrop, you could also tell it to those who are receiving their salary or taking their profit from trades or crypto, they all could use it to increase their portfolio but some of them still choose to "dedicating to lavish it on gambling."
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: People keep asking me to borrow money, some of them for betting on: May 27, 2024, 07:19:29 PM
I would lend out money, but it would depend on where it would be used.
If it would only be used for gambling, isn't emergency and not really important then I wouldn't help them out, I mean I could use that money on something important for me or my family so why would I lend it to others?
It would also depend on a situation, if I know that the person who is asking to borrow money from me spent his/her money on unnecessary then I wouldn't help them, for me they are the problem not the money if I help them then they would just continue to live like it, they wouldn't change.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Greed can cause a lost bet, (true or false) on: May 25, 2024, 08:29:25 PM
For me I could say that it is true, If a gambler couldn't control their greed they would just continue until they have nothing left.
As a gambler we need to set up our limits, know when to stop or quit, if we couldn't control it we would just continue to play even if we already have a good profit.
We have to learn how to be contented, if a gambler would be controlled by their greed they wouldn't stop until they lose everything.
