1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Which will be the new NFT series? on: November 21, 2021, 01:20:24 AM
I don't think that the next successful NFT project will necessarily be an avatar/art project.

That space is completely saturated right now and I think that there is very little that new projects can do in order to differentiate themselves from the rest of the JPEGs. Play to earn is also somewhat saturated, with blocks of virtual land selling up to tens of thousands of dollars which make zero sense.

I'd bet my money on the next big NFT project as a corporate rewards token, because that is ultimately where the utility lies with NFTs.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Where is BNB going!!! on: November 20, 2021, 08:36:44 PM
I shared my comments about BNB that it will be 600 dollars until the 15th of November. I have a guess that he will be excited with the cryptos that football clubs have released lately. I think it could be $750 by the end of December.

Well sure, but realistically I only see it going to $750 if the overall crypto market stays bullish for the rest of the year.

Otherwise I think that people are realizing that ETH will probably have a brighter future than BNB, given that the BSC is a bit more centralized and may have scaling issues nonetheless if it processes as many transactions as the ETH network.

Definitely good for diversification to put some money into BNB, but I wouldn't treat it as an iron clad standalone position.

It's now Curry - 1st, Durant - 2nd, Giannis - 3rd, Jokic - 4th, Doncic - 5th.
A big change from what was expected before the season starts where Luka Doncic was on the top. But I am still waiting for the Luka Magic. He is still there and may need to just step up his game a little bit when he comes back from his ankle injury. Average of triple-double with his points at 20-30 per game. Although, if he really wants to win the Season MVP race, he will need more than that. Because Curry is trying to lengthen the gap between them with his monster games.

Unless Steph gets injured, I don't see him stepping down from that 1st place.

I think that whilst Doncic is still doing really well with the Mavs, their record is just incomparable to the Warriors.

Plus, Doncic is actually averaging less points in this season than his overall career, which is definitely strange.

Yeah I agree. I'm a Mavs fan and even I've got to admit that Doncic is nowhere near Steph this season.

Curry is absolutely cooking and putting up ridiculous numbers on a nightly basis in shooting displays that we haven't seen before. And he's making everyone around him a whole lot better, including Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, etc. who are playing like veterans out there.
4  Economy / Economics / Re: US could run out of cash as soon as Dec. 15, Janet Yellen warns on: November 19, 2021, 10:53:00 PM
Hasn't this happened already in the past multiple times?

The fiat system is irretrievably broken and this is just one of the symptoms. It's not the root cause of its issues like Yellen makes it seem.

The more the debt ceiling gets lifted, the more money is going to come into circulation and therefore inflation will pick up. Our only chance is holding cryptos as a hedge.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: Preparing for the future. on: November 19, 2021, 09:53:23 PM
I agree.

SWEs pay have been absolutely skyrocketing over the past few years and that is a trend for time to come.

You definitely need to be literate in terms of a basic understanding of blockchain technology in order to survive the jobs market in the long run.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Slot forecast on: November 19, 2021, 09:24:40 PM
Apart from dice that it outcome can easily be predicted slot on the other hand is unpredictable.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemmmmm. What?  Huh
The dice and slots are statically predictable games, like i know, that on long term the chance to get "6" from dice is 1/6. The same story with slots. I don't know exact amount of slot machine images, but i know that probability will be ratio between all outcomes and binomial coefficient of needed outcome (like n/m where m is all outcomes)

So i can't get why OP think in that way.

He's talking about whether or not the game is provably fair.

For a lot of slots they are not provably fair but they are regulated by governments. So whether or not you trust that is up to you.

I definitely prefer dice because of this aspect. If a company wanted to rig a game it would be super easy for slots.
7  Economy / Gambling / Re: BetABit.Casino - Share Your Thoughts on: November 18, 2021, 10:30:53 PM
I think you would be more likely to succeed if you focused on fixing the way outcomes are determined in your casino so that they are actually provably fair.

In the mean time, you should remove any mention of your games being provably fair, since they're not.

Your issue with their provably fair implementation is that the client seed isn't used for the generation of their server secret, but is instead used to manipulate the final results. In the case of a card game, that means cutting the deck, and I see how that could be exploited. I'm not sure how that'd be implemented with their slots game though because it seems like the client seed does an unpredictable job of shuffling the reels, and same with dice. Do you have any ideas on that? (I really am just curious, not trying to defend this casino)

Anyway, this casino failed to process a withdrawal.

When the casino isn't even provably fair, withdrawals should be the least of your concerns.

You'd be pretty stupid to play on this site imho, at least play at a place where you know exactly what your odds of winning are through a provably fair system.

But hey, each to their own I guess.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Stake Casino on: November 18, 2021, 10:11:25 PM
About a week ago I emailed support and Edide and asked both of them to shut my account down. I didn't get a reply from either. Now this might be because they don't have to but common courtesy is to reply back? Or is it only common courtesy when they are taking your money on RTP machines paying around 48%? Either way its not playable but for them to ignore my request just further shows the character of the company.

I agree with the lack of professionalism by not replying.

But have you gotten any concrete evidence that you are not getting the claimed RTP?

Because right now it seems very circumstantial - you claim to have lost a bunch of money over a few months, which is totally possible given variance. EV doesn't mean that you must achieve this result.

Great to hear another competitor coming in.

Although I was just wondering what your faucet is? Does it change based on the value of crypto, or is it static?

Also, bankrolls seem to be of sufficient liquidity for the alts, but have you ever considered sharing BTC bankroll to other coins if needed?
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: First decentralized Gambling Platform? on: November 18, 2021, 08:41:33 PM
I'm pretty sure that there has been quite a few decentralized crypto casinos already, including prediction markets.

Augur is probably the best example of this.

While this is certainly a noble cause, what matters is if they can actually attract revenue to the blockchain. I doubt this will happen just because of the fact that people prefer the convenience of centralized alternatives right now.

Exactly, EOSBet, etc. have also come into existence in the past.

Very dishonest for them to claim that they are the first mover when they clearly are not.

But hey, you gotta do what you need to do in order to secure that $20m+ funding right? Who is even investing in this stuff, lol.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: singapore attack on: October 15, 2021, 10:52:12 AM's time has ended in Singapore they will stop the deposit feature, even though Binance, which is the largest crypto exchange platform in the world based on trading volume, members are given 1 month to withdraw.
This clearly affects BNB

Yes, the Singapore decision does affect BNB, but I don't think that it does to the degree that you imagine.

Binance coin has a lot more to it than just being a utility token for its CEX. It is also more useful in its application in the BSC which is arguably more important than its CEX going forward in time.

I think that $500/BNB will be breached very soon as a matter of time. It is 3rd coin by market cap for a reason.
13  Economy / Speculation / Re: Is the bitcoin going to burst anytime soon on: October 15, 2021, 10:33:24 AM
My wife was in a Chase bank today and overheard a chase bank rep stating to a customer, that the bitcoin is NOT going to last much longer.
Especially because the bitcoin continuing to grow in value. I guess that as a result of the increase and nothing backing and/or supporting it.
That as a result it can no longer continue to exist, if I am understanding this analysis...If somehow there could be a discontinuance of the bitcoin,
how does this effect the other forms of cryptocurrencies???

I like how these banks go to great lengths to make sure that whatever their employees say will not constitute financial advice - and there is this particular person offering up their advice regarding Bitcoin.

At every single junction, bitcoin has been doubted and top-callers have come in.

Fact of the matter is that adoption is going to continue to drive growth, and bitcoin is just going to get more scarce as time goes on. Just because growth has been crazy over the past few years doesn't mean that it's unjustified or a bubble.
14  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Bitvest is a scam on: October 15, 2021, 10:17:29 AM
O.P has is yet to reply or comment any of the questions which signifying that he has not serious allegation against Bitvest and even those are complaining against none payment of the signature campaign have all received their payment with bonus.

You downplay it way too much.

Bitvest has been doing this for YEARS. It's not something that has occurred just as a one-off or anything. And not to mention the hot wallet being empty issue that is more important than the signature campaign issue.

It's not a scam as of yet but it's definitely close to that territory. A business that constantly fails its clients in delivering outcomes is not a good business at the very least.
15  Economy / Speculation / Re: How do you explain the October pump? on: October 15, 2021, 10:01:23 AM
Everyone was blaming September for the dip like it was a dip holiday and just waiting for October for the pump. And as soon as October came - and I mean literally, like the first day of October - prices started to go up and it started to pump. How??

How? Because bitcoin is just reverting to its intrinsic value.

BTC was undervalued last month, and the selloff was extremely unjustified in light of news regarding Evergrande. I'm not sure how people even came to the conclusion that bitcoin should be affected by something happening to the real estate market in China to be completely honest.

Now it's just making up for that bearish sentiment. It has nothing to do with October starting though.
16  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🎲 | Bitcoin Casino 🎰 | Sports Betting ⚽🏀🏈 on: October 15, 2021, 09:21:03 AM
The faucets actually look decent. Site design is good as well.

However, I'm not sure how the risk free first bet and the deposit bonuses would work?

I'm a bit skeptical given that people could technically just keep creating new accounts and claiming that first bet risk free. Is there anything in place that is preventing them from exploiting the system like that?
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Welcome to Uptoberfest on: October 15, 2021, 03:52:34 AM
This is a welcome break from the bears.

If you notice what is happening, every time BTC drops bears come out of hiding and tries to create FUD.

Instead of buying in that FUD, the time proven strategy is just keep holding your current position and if you do have the liquidity to do so, continue to dollar cost average into BTC. Given the increasing scarcity and improvements in the technology, it is inevitable that price rises in the long run.
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: Microsteel keeps buying into BTC on: October 15, 2021, 01:41:43 AM
Microstrategy bought +5050 more Bitcoin statistics, this company now owns a total of: 114,042 Bitcoins. When they continuously buy Bitcoin in stages will it cause BTC to break ATH again? What do you expect for BTC at the end of 2021?

They're probably just executing a Dollar-Cost-Average strategy.

But yeah, this is nothing new. Microstrategy and other institutional investors have been consistently investing in BTC for a while now.

And it's good, it keeps the volatility down quite substantially and also means that their position can ride out a bunch of price fluctuations and take advantage of price at any stage.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Any hope for BitcoinCash? on: October 15, 2021, 01:29:01 AM
Do you think there is any hope for BitcoinCash?  Is it still one of the major alts that will pump?  Will it reach previous all time highs?

I don't think there are.

The whole premise of bitcoin cash is to get people to defect from bitcoin and adopt that as an alternative to bitcoin.

That has failed miserably and the community clearly recognises BTC as bitcoin instead of BCH. No long term value here.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why Dogecoin Is Crypto's Most Dangerous Joke on: October 15, 2021, 01:00:48 AM
Is it a joke? Yes.

Is it dangerous? No.

I think that people can have a bit of fun to speculate on Doge and other meme tokens. At the end of the day, they know what they're doing with their capital and they can make their own consenting decisions about what they want to do with it.

Price crashing is a real prospect but the consequences are limited to speculators who knew the risks.
