1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Newbies to Bitcoin can be dangerous! on: August 11, 2018, 09:13:08 AM
I have run into several Bitcoin "newbies" over the last couple of months, that are spreading the wrong information on forums and/or in person. Their intentions is good, but the results is bad, because they did not do proper research.

Some of these people are selling themselves as experts, because they have been in the scene for a few months. I have been in the scene for years and I still know very little about EVERY aspect of this technology.

I think you should rather admit it, when you do not know something about the technology, than selling your little knowledge as facts. I will regularly tell people that I am not clued up with every aspect of this technology, but I always try to do proper research, when I encounter something that I am not 100% clued up on.

~ Ask, if you not sure.
~ Do not lie, if you are unsure.
~ Do proper research, before you educate other people.
~ Accept that you will not know it all.
~ Fact check what you already know.
~ Do not argue, if you not sure about your facts.

Let's agree that we all learn something new about this great technology almost every day, so only a small amount of us are experts.  Wink
Newbies are not dangerous for BTC or the other Crypto market, they are - just like us - excited to earn something from BTC ( knowledge or money,..). However, if they spread those misleading information, it maybe dangerous for the other people who are interested in BTC. That's why we should stay alert and be careful when reading any information about Crypto and before making any decisions.

How many times have you came in a store and asked whether or not they accept bitcoin when you wanted to pay?

Should we do that EACH time we visit ANY store?
Would we create a huge advertisement for BTC that way?

Would stores start accepting it when they encounter a couple of people on a weekly basis asking them if they accept bitcoin?

Should we start doing this? o.o
Should we create a community so hard core that asks for everything they pay if it could be handled in BTC?
I never mean to pay by BTC at any stores, as the fee is high, and the process may not be simple I think.
It's better to just use BTC for investment, trading and holding.

And we can advertise BTC in another efficient ways !

Do you think that Bitcoin has become too slow to compete with the relatively quick alt coins out there? Is it realty competitive to have a slow community rather than a centralised decision making in development?

In other words, does the community effect of decentralisation enough to counterbalance the difficult decision making processes?

I think maybe because Bitcoin has already been the QUEEN, so we may sometimes think that other new coins are moving faster ( newbie always has to move fast). Even if BTC is really moving slowly, no one can deny that it already has a firm position with a high price, and BTC is still the central of the attention in the future.

The problem is: How can the goverment and banks ban BTC, even if they wanted to do? Banks and government cant ban something that is out of their control. I think what they can do is to regulate the use of BTC by making exchanges fee if someone buys or sells BTC through their services. But it is harder and harder these days as brilliant people using BTC will find a way to bend any rules the banks give to control the crypto.
