101  Other / Politics & Society / The EU is dying on: February 05, 2020, 10:26:46 AM
The EU was a failed experiment right from the beginning, and I think the elite are in the process of shoving it under the bus. They already have a replacement empire (CANZUK), and it wouldn't surprise me if tit wasn't planned from the beginning. The Five Eyes alliance ( CANZUK plus Washington) seems to be the main warmongering entity in the world at the moment. As the EU slips into irrelevance, it will attempt to push many globalist agendas, in the hope that some will stay after it has gone. Unfortunately Internet restrictions seems to one of their final projects.
102  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: When transferring bitcoin to hardware wallet how many private keys transfer? on: February 04, 2020, 09:44:54 AM
It might be easier to understand if you think of your Coinbase account as a bucket. When you buy coins, they are tipped into the bucket, and get mixed up with the stuff that is already there. As has been mentioned, Coinbase owns the bucket, not you. When you withdraw into you own wallet, then coinbase fills a bottle with water ( if that is the unit), and that bottle is sent to you. When you receive the bottle, then the coins in it belong to you.

Note that the water in the bottle you receive may have come from someone else's bucket, and not yours. But this doesn't matter, because all water has the same value in this example.

Sorry to jump between water and Bitcoin, but I'm still on my first coffee. Smiley
103  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [VIDEO]The Empirical Proof of Bitcoin's Real Value Being Zero on: February 04, 2020, 09:26:56 AM
People don't seem to be able to grasp that virtual assets can have real value. A novel is one example that I provide fairly often. Wouldn't it be great if schoolteachers, and the media could discuss real life topics, and not keep regurgitating globalist pap.
104  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What Money System Worked? on: February 04, 2020, 08:36:44 AM
Actually the first paper money worked after a style. The wealthy left their bags of gold with a "banker", and when they wanted to pay someone, then they wrote a transfer instruction ( a cheque ), and the bank just made a book entry to register the change of ownership, This was fine as long as the bank actually had the gold in its vaults. Pretty soon they realised that they didn't need to have all the gold that moved between accounts, only the gold that was withdrawn from the bank. This looked like fun, so the governments started to get in on the act, and the pound Sterling was a note for a pound of silver that could be claimed from the government, The government got itself into trouble by writing too many notes, and eventually took the current off the gold standard, and thus blocked the exchange for precious metals.

Today's date is a palindrome - 02-02-2020, and it is the same in both the US and the International representation.

Hey drinking bleach cures all illness, but holding a gun against your head and pulling the trigger is quicker and has fewer side effects.

Reports seem to indicate that people with healthy immune systems are not at risk from the coronavirus, so please don't mess up your immune system with pharmaceutical quackery. A healthy diet, frequent aerobic exercise, and no injection to mess up your immune system are more use than a face mask. Giving up smoking and vaping is another must in my opinion - healthy sex is a great alternative.

Perhaps if there was a Lightning board, then we could persuade someone from lightning to post on it. After all, some guy called Satoshi Nakamoto used to post here, and wasn't he something to do with Bitcoin in its early days? Smiley

Politicians should stick to politics, and leave trade deals to businesses. All politicians seem to be able to do is to impose taxes and tariffs.

Good luck with trying to get accurate data. I've got 3 accounts logged in at the moment. Kuffy using Chrome, Jet Cash using Brave, and Baronets using Firefox. I've also got the mobile on charge, and I may have left that logged in. Smiley
110  Other / Off-topic / Don't forget to backup your computers. on: February 02, 2020, 07:40:04 PM
This is a mantra that is constantly being chanted on the forums, but people are still not doing it. This include me. I've just caught my foot in the power cable to my notebook (I'm in KFC at the moment).and the computer crashed down onto the floor as it was loading a thread from Bitcoin Talk. I'm by a window, and it hit the lower frame just above floor level. Panic set in, as I must be about 3 months behind with my backups. Fortunately, apart from a small chip out of the plastic lid casing, it doesn't appear to have done any damage.

I bought a 2Tb backup drive some rime ago, but it isn't any good if you don't use it. It's so easy to copy your data, including the blockchain and your wallet, so do it regularly. You may not be as lucky as I was. There are other problems as well. Your computer could be stolen, or you could spill coffee or worse over it. and I haven't even mentioned mechanical or software failure.
111  Other / Off-topic / Re: What if coronavirus is just a cover for something more serious that is happening on: February 02, 2020, 06:33:23 PM
It isn't a cover, there is something more serious happening. They seem to be getting ready to bring down the toxic debt mountain in fiat, and global pandemics will be a good distraction. I gather they have managed to restart bird flu in China. I bet the corona virus isn't the only pandemic they are starting, and we can expect to see more in the future.
112  Other / Politics & Society / Re: The real education are not taught at school!! on: February 02, 2020, 06:27:05 PM
Come on guys - going to the right school is the main thing. If you go to Eton, Harvard or the Sorbonne, then you can really achieve in life. If you go to any other school, then you are at a massive disadvantage right from the beginning.
113  Other / Meta / Re: How Do You Post Pictures? on: February 02, 2020, 06:05:23 PM
You can also resize the image

You can also resize the image using free software like Irfanview - that is more helpful to members, as it reduces the download overhead.

Logged in time is not the most important thing if you are wondering about potential post views. I often have Bitcoin Talk open in a background browser window for long periods during the day. Viewing time is only a small part of this.
115  Other / Off-topic / Re: BTCdude ''The search for the dude behind Bitcoin''. on: February 02, 2020, 12:07:11 PM
I thought it was pretty much accepted that it is a banking experiment, and that it was put into the public domain for creative development. The bankers can then create their own crypto currencies from the best of the developments. The 10 minute block generation time indicates that it was intended to block its ability to replace  centralised fiat currencies.
116  Other / Politics & Society / Spain wants Gibealtar as part of Brexit. on: February 02, 2020, 11:41:02 AM
They have no chance. Given that the Eton/Oxford banking elite are a major part of the body that controls the EU, and Gibraltar is a significant tax haven, and investment management host country, they aren't going to give that up to an unstable country, that may be leaving the EU itself. Given all these issues being raised by member countries, it is going to be difficult to try to agree a single deal that is viable. This will result in the UK leaving under WTO rules at the end of the year, and this is what we voted for in the original Brexit referendum. What a waste of five years our treasonous politicians created.

Just put coronavirus and variants in your banned words list, and auto-delete any mail containing therm.
118  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How To Earn From BitcoinTalk on: February 02, 2020, 11:06:38 AM
If you want to earn by driving a car, then you need to learn about cars and how to drive them. This forum is a great place to learn about Bitcoin and how to use it. Master the basics here before you try to do anything to receive payment.If you make the wrong decision now, you could end up getting banned, and losing access to a great community.
119  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Blind Person Access Bitcoin? on: February 02, 2020, 10:54:18 AM
I thought deaf and dumb was the combination ( I'm leaving out jokes about politicians here ). and not blind and deaf. The UK has quite a lot of support for blind people, and the values of fiat notes are different sizes to help blind people to identify them. Dome restaurants like those in Morrisons supermarkets have braille menus, and there are various other aids in the community. When I owned a computer shop, I sponsored a pupil in a local school, and I provided him with a free dot matrix printer to create a Braille printer. He removed the ink ribbon, and used the pins in the print head to build the braille characters. He then used an Amiga computer to convert the text and to print it from right to left. This was necessary because Braille is read by sensing raised dots, which were on the back of the paper. The guy got 2nd prize in the Young Scientist of the year awards.

I mentioned the Braille printer, because a project to provide Bitcoin access for the blind would be a great sixth form project.
120  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why not we donate some Bitcoin for corona virus? on: February 02, 2020, 09:12:45 AM
The  Coronavirus is here to stay, and was obviously created as part of the global eugenics programmes declared by the likes of Bill Gates, John Bolton and Hilary Clinton. Even if you were to donate all of the Bitcoins in existence, it is unlikely to be enough. It would be far better to create a trust to research the long term effects of vaccination ( over 10 years), and the damage done to immune systems. More people have dies as a result of influenza, and it would be interesting to see the percentage of those who are unvaccinated. I thnk the results would shock those who blindly push vaccination as "health care".

My understanding is that people with a healthy, naturally built immune system are not at risk from the coronavirus, and may not even show any symptoms if they contract it, although they will still be able to pass it on.
