1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Welcome to the future on: April 08, 2019, 05:56:34 PM
I agree with your speculative premise 100% that the future involved crypto playing a major role in everyone’s lives. I see this as the future. However, “embracing” crypto pulls in a lot of concepts that many do not care about. People just want better things and things that work. Crypto will bring this along with many added benefits to what people have today. My main point is that the future may hold scenarios where people are using crypto without even knowing it or understanding it - along the lines of the analogy that people love the web but don’t understand what DNS is.

I see that several cryptos will be in the EU beta release. Do you have any ideas on what coins will be added to the Live Release? 
Will some coins be easier to add than others based on the technical details of the specific chain?



The white paper mentions rounding up purchases (presumably up to the nearest Euro) with the user being able to route the rounded up amount elsewhere, like a “crypto trading account.” Do you know what exchanges will be available to send this round up? Is this done via an exchange integration/API, or wallet address (potentially a separate non exchange wallet?)

I’ll add that vision is also a key attribute to survive in the s space. I see courage as necessary too as courage helps us act in the face of fear. But directing the courage in the right direction based on your goals and research requires a certain insight, “line of sight” to meet your goals, etc - which to me capture the vision concept.

I’ve been thinking about the tokenization conceptual workflow in the white paper, especially the part highlighting the proof of reserve (independent 3rd party) to verify that there are indeed real assets to backup the tokenization.  I see that the end user can rate these 3rd party verifiers. Beyond user ratings, what other ways do you see to establish trust in the 3rd party?  My question is more conceptual since I can see this answer depending on what is being tokenized.  Could you share a couple examples or further expand out the “egg-token” example in the white paper?

Have another question is OK... Is there a fee to send crypto via my 2gether app to a phone contact that also has a 2gether app? Is this transfer performed on-chain or within 2gether’s internal systems (analogous to moving coins within a CEX)?

Have you considered a https://mywish.io service?
They have this service:

Inheritance
Transfers person’s savings to his family or friends in the event of his sudden illness or death

I’ll look into it. I’m generally wanting to minimize or avoid use of a third party but I’m open to looking into options.  I can imagine companies/services/lawyers starting to come up with solutions to make this easier.

I like the idea of getting rewarded for sharing my personal data to receive customized marketing offers that are actually a good fit for me.  Can you elaborate on how my data is shared with a 3rd party making an offer?  For example, is my specific info only shared if I accept an offer?  Does the personal data otherwise reside 100% within 2gether?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum vs BitcoinCash Which will win? on: March 25, 2019, 05:27:39 PM
Let’s consider your question by use case and actual development activities.

Use case - as a currency BCH brings nothing to the table relative to BTC or LTC.  BCH fans may seem to have a spiritual connection to Satoshi which is misguided in my opinion.  ETH has actual utility within its ecosystem. The ICO phase may be behind us, but smart contracts on ethereum will play a big part in the future.

Development - perhaps I oversimplify but I see BCH as a random fork with no goal other than to overthrow BTC with a marketing and tribal apparatus. This has been unsuccessful and in my union, will continue to be unsuccessful.  This is in contrast to ETH - there are actual improvements and developments ongoing.

Another question - In the white paper I see that users will “enjoy benefits according to the amount of 2GT tokens held…”  Can you elaborate or provide an example of the benefits?  Im also curious for team thoughts on how much effect the benefits will impact holding behavior (and in turn, token velocity).
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Crypto estate planning on: March 25, 2019, 05:05:31 PM
Another thing you can do is to download some tutorials from the internet, you can download them in PDF and print them or store them, this way you don't need to write the instructions for yourself, the only thing you have to do is check the validity of those tutorials.

Brilliant! I feel lame that I didn’t think of that. There’s a ton of good material out there, including materials that should be understandable to my wife (especially if I get her toes wet at least with playing with her own wallet).

Appreciate the thoughts here!
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Crypto estate planning on: March 25, 2019, 04:01:45 PM

Try training your kid or your wife to spend some BTC using an app. It always start with something like this and once they know they can spend just using an app, they start learning how Bitcoin or ETHER works. Sooner they will eventually ask why it has value and how to en-cash BTC going to their bank account. Maybe one day you can entrust to them you privatekeys

Thanks, this is solid advice. I often talk to my wife about crypto but never in a hands on way. Perhaps I can get her started with a simple phone app like you said, send her some modest amounts, and teach her how to protect  her own keys. Maybe an ultimate goal is being able to hand her a wiped Lesger nano and see if she can restore and then interact with BTC and a handful of alts!

I like the side effect of getting crypto more directly onto her radar as well as a mantra of “adoption starts at home”  Smiley  These bonus benefits are great. Thanks again!
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Crypto estate planning on: March 25, 2019, 03:19:20 PM
I have been thinking more about the practical side of how to best get my crypto into the hands of my family when I pass on someday, when they have near zero knowledge of crypto.  I am pretty diversified both in coins and in types of wallets, and we all know crypto can be tricky for new folks. I’m looking for solutions they avoid me writing a novel-length set of instructions as well as zero/minimal trust in 3rd parties.

Has anyone taken this topic seriously and come up with a plan?

Do you have any tips or resources you could share?

Note: I’m interested in the practical side of coin access by noobs here. I am not looking for input on the legal or tax aspects  since that is so very case/country dependent.

I really wonder how many casual investors think about this as well as how many keys will be lost forever as we all get older!
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why are you still hodling that shitcoin? on: March 25, 2019, 03:01:49 PM
I do the same thing OP.  I tend to hang onto a shred of hope that somehow these coins may be at least sellable for a profit in the future although that is likely just dreaming. A smart approach would be to dump things with no future value (project is dead) and see what type of tax benefit may be possible for the loss (depending on juristixtion this may be possible.

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Would Bitcoin be the same if Satoshi wasn't anonymous? on: March 25, 2019, 01:47:16 PM
I agree with many of the points about decentralization impact if we’re Satoshi known and active.  It’s interestinf to consider if Satoshi would have smashed some of the bitcoin forks that he may have seen as unnecessary. His opinion and leadership would be very impactful. We may have avoided BCH and all the subsequent Fork junk.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [ICO] 2GETHER - THE FIRST EUROPEAN CRYPTO CARD on: March 25, 2019, 01:42:00 PM
Does the app have the ability to add “watch only addresses” - for example, an ETH wallet for which I have the private keys but want to have an easy way to monitor the holdings via the app as part of my overall financial portfolio. If this is not on the roadmap is it something 2gether would consider?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [ICO] 2GETHER - THE FIRST EUROPEAN CRYPTO CARD on: March 25, 2019, 01:39:19 PM
I see the list of cryptos that will be in the EU beta release. Do you have any prioritization on what coins/tokens will be added to the Live Release?  How many coins to your eventually see supporting in the app, from more of a long term view?

We will consult our community to decide which coins and tokens will be added in the future

Oh that’s great and the ideal in my opinion. I recall that the white paper making general mention of “one user = one vote.”  So would token adds fall into this voting mechanism? Will voting be done within the app?
Thanks.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Trade my eth for LTC? on: March 22, 2019, 11:19:52 PM
 I would Rather hold the ETH  since there is a lot of innovation there and the future growth with smart contracts and protocols should be solid. I like LTC for nostalgia but I’m not convinced of its long term staying power.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will cryptomarket recover by the end of this year? on: September 15, 2018, 07:40:02 PM
Hello, nobody can answer this with certainty. My guess is that we will see some sideways for the next month or two - or maybe 6 months. I am hopeful that the year 2019 will be a strong one for crypto!  Just my own thoughts. I again think that TA and fundamentals cannot make guarantees to you about when a “recovery” will occur. However I am really optimistic about the long term value and utility in this space. Cheers!
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Invest in Ethereum on: September 14, 2018, 06:10:52 PM
You have to do your own research and your own calculated risk/benefit. But I think now is a good time to buy ETH if you are patient with holdings and dollar cost average your buys. I anticipate we will see all time highs again but nobody can tell you how high it will go. So it’s a matter of patience, potential gain, and your timeframe I think. Cheers!!
