1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: HOW LOW BTC CAN GO? on: March 27, 2020, 03:53:54 PM
Right now, we are above all of those prices, anyone still thinks we can go that low? I mean you have to really not understand finances at all to think that bitcoin could go that low. First of all there are just too much bitcoin required to sell all that much, is it possible? Sure it is, if everyone around the world sells their coins we can go under 100 dollars today, however considering how much the volume is and how much people are willing to sell for etc etc, that means there is really not that much chance.

There is just too many buy orders around in the market which is why we will not really see something that major ever happening. However, if you believe that billions of dollars worth of bitcoin will be all sold in a matter of hours, that is something else.

Oh my GOD! A fifa game against the players who are actually in fifa would be like dream come true for most of us. I am not going to lie I am not a great fifa player, I do not have those amazing players and I haven't played in couple months now and I am in 6th or 7th right now, never been above 5th so far in division, so I can't really say that I would be ideal candidate, there are so many great players around the world who can probably score 10+ goals to me in a game.

However if given the chance I would play the hell out of that game and twitch stream it and also cast it myself and just be the commentator. It would be like a life story for all my life that I talk about to my grandchildren when I am old, it would be that awesome honestly. I definitely suggest asking around and trying to get at least some young ones interested.
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Things you shouldn't do when gambling at casino this time... on: March 24, 2020, 07:48:45 AM
Just avoid with physical contact with anyone, you may not where they came before meeting you even in casinos or any crowded areas.
Fortunately there will be no casino in operation which means we cannot go around anywhere for the reason of gambling. The only thing, we must do right now is, staying within home and even if we go out, should maintain social distancing. I guess most gamblers might be switching into online mode hence there will be no threat for them even in these corona outbreak periods.

Moreover, we the gamblers are having alternate options for gambling and similarly other entertainments also might be having alternates; for example, I guess people do visit malls for movies may switch into online streaming services for same level of entertainment. So, staying within home will not be a problem for anyone.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Did gambling cause you to have difficulty in sleeping as a gambler? on: March 23, 2020, 08:30:36 PM
If you are gambling so much out of your pocket and losing enough money to make you lose sleeps, you are doing something very very VERY wrong. You should definitely talk to your family first and then talk to some professional if you can't stop after that.

Gambling is as serious addiction as any and you should take it seriously, losing sleep over gambling means it is actually affecting your health, you should not allow it to take over your life all that much, there is really no sense of going so out of control and still keep on gambling. I understand that it is easier said and done and that is why there are so many places that can help you, whenever you feel like you have lost your control and spinning out, just contact one of them and get an appointment, there is no other way, if you can't stop yourself at least let them help you.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Why there are so many people who get addicted on gambling? on: March 23, 2020, 06:47:18 PM
There should be multiple reasons for gambling addictions:

- Feeling more excitement of gambling while playing it.
- Failing to control emotions.
- Failing to deviate focus to other things.
- Believing gambling a source of income.

Overall, when we are frequent to gambling then we will easily getting addicted to it. Adrenaline push must be the basic reason here. Thrills and excitements of gambling will enforce you to keep coming back and when you are regular to gambling then you will be a victim to it.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Corona virus (COVID19) Effect in Cryptocurrency Gambling on: March 23, 2020, 09:04:03 AM
The corona virus outbreak and its consequence of lock-down and work-from-home will lead driving more traffic into online casinos. Already movie streaming services are reporting about congestion in their band with and I'm afraid that online  casino also may experience the same kind of situation in coming days. At the same time we cannot underestimate the capability of long-running crypto gambling houses because they must be setting up enough servers to withstand against multi-fold of gamblers compared to what they are doing for years.

Anyhow, physical casinos must have been experiencing their tough time already. Only a complete cure for corona will open doors for them again. Some medical forecasting study indicates about survival of only one third of the world population but not sure what is going to happen. This is really time for praying to God to save all of us.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Some casino gambling tips. on: March 22, 2020, 03:49:55 PM
Out of 3 points you have mentioned, I guess 2 are applicable for online gambling as well.

- We must know over budget even for online gambling. Because like physical gambling, online gambling is also tempting you to add more money into a bankroll which will lead to big losses later on. Without having limited budget going for gambling anywhere will lead to big disasters when you are blindly gambling out of excitements.

- Knowing the games, we play is most common hence which is applicable even for online gambling. The most common mistake people do while playing online games is, failing to check the rate of house edge in different games. Because, house edge will be playing big role in determining your success levels and when you are not knowing everything about the game you are going to play, may eventually end up in big losses.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling Physically vs Gambling Online Using Crypto on: March 22, 2020, 03:10:06 PM
the satisfaction we could get from both of these kinds of gambling is different still, it depends on the perspective of a person.
Because the definition of satisfaction is definitely different from gambler to gambler. For example, some people are finding their satisfaction only on profits whereas most other gamblers are getting their satisfaction based on the level of thrills they are experiencing from gambling.

When things are completely varying according to the perception of each gambler, I believe it is not at all good idea to compare gambling physically and gambling online because both are completely different and people who are approaching them are completely having different approach and reasons hence comparing them could not make any sense in the basis of gambler's perspective.

Only for the owners of gambling houses, these could be additional options like they must be getting more customers for their business when they are running both physical and online casinos for same type of gambling.

I guess most countries are requiring different licenses for physical and online casino as these two are complete different businesses from government regulation perspectives too.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Anything could be gambling on: March 22, 2020, 06:26:52 AM
Yes, anything could be converted as a gambling because betting on anything is possible (at least in teasing manner).

We do bet on "who will finish off the pizza first" or like "who will climb the staircase first", even these are done for no money, the winner may ask for a treat later on. I do really enjoy on this as winning is possible and feasible for me regardless of how new a task will be.

Gamble for fun and if chances are on your favor then make some benefits which fits more exactly here. Moreover, it cannot be illegal as per any culture nor jurisdiction too. Just make fun with your family or friend or colleagues or neighbors by making anything as a gambling.
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Learn to play Dice on: March 21, 2020, 05:32:35 PM
There is nothing to be "learn" in dice, its simply dice, when you say learn people may think it is like poker or games like that which could be learned and become better, in dice there is a house edge so no matter how much you learn playing dice, eventually you will lose, that is all you have to remember, if you somehow get ahead that means you are fine and just get out, do not force your luck and try to get more money because you won't, some people will tell you it is possible to make a profit but do not believe them, do not believe any of them, this is not something about being a loser or a winner, this is not about strategy or being smart or anything, this is literally IMPOSSIBLE because it has house edge and that means mathematically speaking you will not win.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: COVID-19 and its effect in Gambling World on: March 20, 2020, 03:46:33 PM
I wonder how much pokerstars must be getting right now. They are an online poker website so they must be getting a lot more customers, they literally have 1 cent 2 cent blinds there which means you do not have to be rich to gamble there, I have played on those tables and I have seen pots that were lower than 1 dollar many many times, highest I have seen was 2.20 on those tables, so people were basically playing with as little amount as it gets and spending hours there.

With the corona virus and everyone being isolated, I feel like maybe there could be people who are staying at home and started back on gambling on online websites, not all online websites are crypto and not all gambling is sportsbooks, so there could be many online non-sorts games that people gamble right now.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Ways to recover from being addicted in gambling. on: March 19, 2020, 06:35:16 PM
Falling in love...

Not sure it is already a recommended way of getting rid off gambling addictions or how many people will agree to it but I am sure it must be an easiest way to divert your focus off the gambling so that you may start staying away from gambling which will easily help you to recover from gambling addictions.

Gambling addiction just need your focus to make it more severe whereas if you get engaged with some other thing which requires all your attention then you can easily deviate your focus. It will definitely work for boys and not sure about girls because I have experienced in real life and just talking from my own experiences.

14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Do you stop gambling in a time of crisis? on: March 16, 2020, 02:49:54 PM
Stop gambling in crisis? I think that changes from individual to individual and from situations we are in. For me crisis is when I cannot focus on other aspects of life unless that crisis is melted down. First severe crisis means something like someone from my family is in a hospital and I don't have money to pay bills and in such a crisis if I am gambling then I would honestly believe my soul is dead.

Now, coming to crisis which are less threatening like you want to study further but lack funds in such situations saving money would never be too helpful although I strongly believe in saving money but you can't collect enough doing it, so I believe a loan is the best option.

Moving to even smaller crisis like you made some loss in your business and you are suffering from hard times, now this is the time when saving money and eliminating useless transactions can really help you and gambling is certainly one thing you should stop in such times.

Good initiative! Now I just need to bookmark only one thread for choosing/comparing my preferred service providers.

Also, escrow providers' list is missing even there might be at least 3 such overview topics available here if I remember correctly. You may list this one even it is not with latest updates/chances: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0
16  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Best way to buy Bitcoin (since halving is coming) on: March 13, 2020, 07:39:42 AM
How about you make use of platforms that are already popular and weíll developed. If youíre looking for a p2p exchange then you should considering exchanges like LocalBitcoin where you can connect with sellers in your locality and buy as much as you want and also make payment with whatever payment method of choice. There is also Paxful, and itís an already popular platform with a mobile app that makes things easier for you.

A lot of payment methods are being accepted on Paxful and cash is one of them. You should go for these platforms , they have been around for long and they can be trusted. Other good platform you can use is Coinbase, itís  very safe, but is a Centralized exchange.

[siz e=16pt]Which is Best Trading or Freelancing?[/size]

The truth is that that you cannot make good money with freelancing, the only thing where you can make money is trading but for trading you would need a good revenue and expertise in trading otherwise you will just loose because the good exchanges has high trading fee and it is difficult that you could generate profit.


This is a mistake and should fix before too late. Freelancing have many way to make money, many professional and programmer came from this side and like or not, trading world needed. Freelancing is sell our skill and work, the money can use for trade, that's free way. Many people doesn't have fund to start trade and freelancing is the answer. Think again because freelancing is prestige job around the world.
Freelancing indeed is prestigious if you have a skill which you can sell repeatedly. I mean there are freelancers who earn big but they are smart enough and always develop a new skill every few months to make sure the competition is not against them.

Let's understand with an example: You are a designer and you enter a freelancing contest then you will be faced with hundreds of other competitors but if you slowly develop an additional skill where you can also code then your chances become higher making your chances better.

While trading you just have to stick with what you know best and just keep polishing that one skill more and more until you get perfect with it. So, depends if you want to learn skills or you have the ability to just groom your current skill, that defines if you can be a better trader or freelancer.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Would You Rent A Car With Bitcoin? on: March 06, 2020, 02:53:05 PM
Not good choose for rent a car with bitcoin because bitcoin price always have potential to higher, maybe you can ask for your car company available for rent car with payment using altcoin like doge or ethereum, its more benefit because both altcoin some time going down.
Well, to avoid any price increase/decrease issues you can simply fix the payment in USD and when the payment is made you can use a website like preev and pay in bitcoins whatever the price is right that time. I mean yes price may rise and fall but how does it even matter because you are paying the moment when you make payment.

But at the same time I feel that bitcoins can be cashed easily and why not just sell your bitcoins for fiat and then pay for it, I mean bitcoins payment is good having an option but it should be forced into the system where it is not required.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can porn sites make bitcoin more popular or will it brings negative effects? on: March 06, 2020, 02:20:40 PM
The payment method should not be defined by who uses it although the companies are very sensitive about this as you can read how paypal stopped providing services to pornhub, read about it here: https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/14/20965167/paypal-pornhub-payroll-model-program-payment-options-paxum-verge-performers

I believe bitcoins main aim is to keep the individual and payments anonymous and porn is almost similar where almost everyone wants to remain anonymous while they make payments and watch those videos.

I feel that if more and more porn websites start accepting payments in bitcoins that would be good for bitcoins as more people will get to know about bitcoins although it will also bring some bad name to it.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Have you ever lost access to your Bitcoins? on: March 06, 2020, 01:23:30 PM
What is your story of not being able to access your Bitcoin wallet with Bitcoins in them.

What have you tried to retrieve them?
I haven't lost access to bitcoins like that but I remember when I was new to bitcoins I was first introduced to blockchain.info and I made a new wallet there with some temporary email because I didn't knew giving my mail email id was safe and worth it. Then after a few days when I tried to login, it said that an email has been sent to your email since you are logging in from new browser and since I used a temporary email I actually could never open my wallet again but I don't know if I had any bitcoins left over because I did some work as a freelancer and got paid in bitcoins which I believe I sold right away after keeping in blockchain wallet for little while.

I still wonder if some BTC are there but not quite sure and absolutely no way to retrieve them.
