If you use bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, then you are a criminal to Nigeria SARS
It's so bad that this agents of the so called special anti-robbery squad also have their own Bitcoin wallets, there have been numerous occasions when they stopped young men, went through their phones/devices and found btc wallets such as electrum or other types and forcefully transferred btc to their own wallets, it's that terrible here in Nigeria and the government have done nothing about this for so long, that's why the protests is as heated as it is now and heading to a revolution the way things are moving.
That is not all, only Nigeria SARS take along with them POS they use to collect money from people. They do follow people to ATM machine location before and still often, but they later deploying better ways to make it easier and resorting to POS payment. Nigerian SARS are indeed devil, even if not worse than devil.
Cheesy let not forget there are still good eggs among them, with the few bad eggs that caused this havoc on her citizens shouldn't be generalize IMO. There are good GALS among the formal disbanded SARS, those individuals actually are few which some are personally known to me becasue i once work with them. What i see was underfunded Police arm which primary duty is for the protection and safety of her citizen, they tend to carter for themselves and in doing this innocent citizens payed dearly.

It might interest you to know some hidden facts about serving police officers still engage into some evil. There salaries are nothing to write home about, those serving officers sometimes find it difficult to get their pay like other paramilitary because of their funding. The retirees in the police force are the worst hit bro, a retired CP (commissioner of Police)  after retirement find it difficult to live because of pension, the government of the past did some dastard act to these retirees, they diverted their retirements benefits to other section of the government in 2011/2012. Now, if the high rank officer after retirement find it hard to cater for their families, then, what do you think about the intention of the serving officers? they will definitely find other alternative of surviving, am not in support of their actions though.

The demobbed soldiers after the civil war are not left out, most of their cases are still pending with the PTAD while some can't find their way out of the darkness created by our government, these are individuals that served the country wholeheartedly but paid in bad coins, until the government release funds in their confer that belong to these retirees; believe me bro, things will still be negative after this reform. Remember this: those retirees children's are still those serving the country and they have seen what happened to their parents.

The havoc the pandemic caused our various government could be the reason behind this move from country like the UK among others, this is essential as they find it difficult to sustain their revenue generation. For any government to continue with their activities financially, it is imperative for them to look beyond the traditional scope, this might be reason they tends to shift towards online gambling for revenue generation which call for urgent regulation. The benefits we will get from this act will be more positive than negative IMO. Scammers wont be easily found among the online gambling platforms becasue of government regulations which will protect the right of the players.

Just as simple as it may, my type of bettor is a type born out of addiction with a self-control. I mostly moved ahead with bets when my potential teams are involved with a lesser team. This has made me a serial successful bettor among my equals. What i discovered of recent was me approach towards bet from the wrong perspective which made me loss some of my hard earnings. Though, some of my bet are done whenever there is an open opportunity for my team or odds in favor of my team.

Not at all, those altcoins i have ever hold are mainly for the purpose of profit and not for the purpose they are meant for. Most of these altcoins do not have case use or not made for a specific purpose, so, for anyone to pick on them for profit taking should be the very best. In actual sense, things should have been done otherwise if we want the progress and the actualization of a global adoption in the industry. No altcoin actually meet the requirement of what they're meant and created for.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Just a Question... on: October 24, 2020, 07:49:01 AM
Another possible reason would probably be the fact that Telegram are associated often with previous scams. They knew that there are high tendencies for prospective customers to avoid visiting it due to the bad impression. Its image are already tarnished thus promoters find a better and cleaner place (which is Discord in this case) to promote their platform. I might be wrong tho, but if you will ask me I can feel such thing somehow Cheesy.
You have a point, the scam associated with telegram made it not be use by most gambling companies, we all know what is going on with that social media, a place where anyone can be impersonated without action on the part of the social media. Discord is known with it decent environment and with less scam becasue scammers has already infiltrated the social media too. Discord is more well organize than that of telegram IMO.

49. A British gambler sold all of his possessions, including all of his clothes, and bet $135,300 on red for a single spin of a roulette wheel in Las Vegas and won. Source
Really? That is a full risk, betting all of your money including your clothes is bad if you don't win it because you will end up nothing, I wonder how he was able to decide to bet all his money, luckily he won the roulette, he has the good confident about the betting. I don't see myself doing that thing because I am afraid to risk all of my money. I don't want to invest it without any good assurance that I can bring back my money but unfortunately, we don't have that assurance for every investment and gambling we have, all came from taking a risk.
Don't forget that risk is part of our living, those without risk are sure failures in the society. Whatsoever we do apart from the investment platforms are made possible becasue risk is involve, so, taking risk should be part of everybody, though this depends or varies on individuals. Gambling is one of the most riskiest platform which need care and self-control if anyone want to benefit from the luck that come with it. I think we must learn to take risk base on our capacity to avoid depression.

It was a nice moved from Bitcoin becasue it was long awaited for. Although, this was a FOMO from PayPal announcement about their involvement with Bitcoin. We all know that PayPal made their proclamation that effect from 2021 they will integrate the buy and sell of Bitcoin into their system, this caused the FOMO few days ago, which those who have been waiting for Bitcoin dips before buy went into the market with the FOMO. Hope we see another all time high before the end of the year 2020.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: UK Company adopts Bitcoin as treasury reserve assets on: October 23, 2020, 05:36:14 PM
Well, this should be applaud becasue of their involvement into the system unlike others whom might look into Bitcoin volatility. What i think about we not  having giants like big tech will be Bitcoin volatility, but aside this negative aspect of Bitcoin others would have been involve. Although, seeing those companies getting into the space is a welcome development which would be the basis of the current market getting positive bullish.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why criminals still use Bitcoin? on: October 23, 2020, 03:42:39 PM
Because they think it's an easy way to cover their tracks. But they do not understand that this is not quite true in reality.
Though not easy to keep secret while use Bitcoin but with average knowledge in Bitcoin mixers platforms users should be be able to know how to mix coins for security purposes. We have heard some criminals moved hug funds through Bitcoin which were not been track till date, what this means is; anyone among these criminal groups with a good knowledge about mixing of coins will definitely find their exit easily but remember, not all criminals can.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why didn't PayPal decided to use xrp than Bitcoin? on: October 23, 2020, 03:28:47 PM
There won't be a time when PayPal will consider the add of this shitcoin, which was known as a scam project from the beginning and still be operated scamly. If this scam project is consider then it would not be a surprise to me personally because of their long history from their existence. There are good project OP should made good investment with than this scumbag scam project IMO. Bitcoin consideration came from it decentralization and haven been in existence without an administrator but functioning beyond expectation.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Airdrops Confusion on: October 22, 2020, 09:03:19 PM
 Grin that shouldn't be a confusion because the two are just same IMO. They all accept information from participants in various degrees and with different mode of operation. Sincerely speaking, this will continue as nothing can be done to Savage this happenings around the system. What I would advise on this two is: don't give out your information to expect good coins or tokens from these projects because thousands of them are just spam tokens use by hackers.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: End of Defi hype! Time to invest in real business with real products? on: October 22, 2020, 08:45:04 PM
It was known to all that this won't last longer. But, Defi hype is not fully over and Manay projects will be dead with the end of hype. So i strongly suggest everyone to stay with the projects that has usable products in real world.
This was just a replication of what has happened in the past when ICOs where actually used to extort potential investors. The errand of defi's projects where actually created for the vulnerables in whom never experienced the past during the ICO days. Some of my argument when this projects went sporadic was that, defi projects are purely for extortion from well known scammers around the ecosystem and that's what we have seen.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: PayPal customers will be able to use BTC, ETH and other cryptos to pay merchants on: October 22, 2020, 08:27:59 PM
Sometimes news like this will make bitcoin grow even more. If you look at since yesterday bitcoin has continued to pump, is this one of the factors that caused it? As we know paypal is a big company and it could push up the bitcoin price.
Definitely Bitcoin price should be seen in good momentum because this is a good implementation on the part of the PayPal company to adopt Bitcoin and Ethereum. This just shows that we might see another good move from the previous Bitcoin price we have had. I couldn't see this coming to increase my bagholding while we were into the dip, though still will take this advantage to update my holdings before things went higher.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling thoughts. on: October 20, 2020, 02:44:56 PM
I prefer cansino gambling than online gambling because online gambling is not favouring me any time I played online gambling. Online gambling you are alone no body to ask questions if the bet is a sure bet compare to cansino gambling where you will always found people to ask question before betting any game.
Cansino gambling help me not to spend more than i budgeted for. It hard me to lose cansino gambling because after asking questions I will now know the one is sure for the game.
Don't get it twisted mate, physical or traditional gambling platforms could not give us the needed convenience compared to the online gambling platforms. Fortunately i have tasted the two and would have say: For fun with friends; then traditional gambling will make the best but for convenience; then online gambling platform have it. It seem your case is peculiar because you gamble with care when with friends but can't do same when online. You can always set your limit whenever you choose to gamble online as equally in traditional platforms.  
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling License on: October 20, 2020, 02:14:38 PM
I think reputation matters but it was not easily be given to anyone they should show first it to the community and only time could tell, some of the most of the reputable gambling sites doesn't have license but we know that they are trusted since through time they proven themselves but of course at first it would be hard for them to attract players and encourage to trust them.
Agree with your submission, we can all attest to this fact that, reputation on gambling platforms or cryptocurrency exchanges doesn't come easily like the license does (anyone can attain license base on their finances) . Mostly on this exalted forum, it took time and tenacity from gambling platforms to gain reputation from gamblers here on the forum, most of my friends outside this space do verify their gambling platforms from this exalted cryptocurrency platform.   
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Are you a high roller? on: October 20, 2020, 02:01:26 PM
I am sure many of us will choose whatever they feel is good for them. And no matter if you are a high roller or low roller, as long as you can enjoy the games and accept the risk of losing the money, you can continue playing gambling. But when you feel that it is hard to stay focus or continue to play on that game, maybe you need to stop gambling because that is the sign that you can not have fun.
Well, my take is liken to your bold text, what i normally do with my games is whether am having fun or not. I wouldn't call myself a high roller or not because this depends on my feelings when engage in the game. Sometimes when am okay with the games and having the needed entertainment i want from the i switch the gear from low roller to a high roller. Though am always caution about the risk of me lose money in the process, so, i game wisely.

Basically, there are two major thing you ought to know before proceed with the roulette game: Be-able to choose the right table is the mot important and that which also determine your luck, the wrong table for a start will definitely end a player at lost. In another phase, ensure to start simple and to a progressive complex start. This will help in your getting luck while gambling on roulette games platform, also, learn to have a combine strategy in your bet.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Potential shortage of bitcoins? on: October 19, 2020, 03:10:08 PM
I can't possibly see the shortage of bitcoin, becasue currently we have 18million+ bitcoin in circulation and which total supply is 21milion bitcoin. The truth here is, the price of bitcoin will drastically shift in this case becasue the demands in the industry will be more sporadic than the supply. With this, the industry will open more opportunity for the holders to make good returns from their holdings. For anyone discussing bitcoin shortage shouldn't lay emphasis on it total supply at the moment but coins in circulation and it demands.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin has the properties of an employment opportunity on: October 19, 2020, 02:50:41 PM
Sorry mate, that wasn't the same with your starting point: though all the same. Talking about Bitcointalk as an employment opportunity doesn't really move out of point becasue many stuff going on here are for the sake of learning alongside be paid for your contributions. For anyone hoping for an opportunity on Bitcointalk should rethink, because the the forum doesn't give guarantee take home most especially for those doing bounties. Bounties doesn't worth employment opportunity as there are thousands of scam projects on the bounties section of the forum. Always consider Bitcointalk as a side hustle and not an employment opportunity.        
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: People Say btc is Not ponzi but its look like ponzi on: October 19, 2020, 02:34:02 PM
How anyone who Say Can proof Bitcoin is not ponzi?
The only proof for this evidence is it existence, Bitcoin has been here for the masses whom financial freedom was seek. Ponzi schemes are different from what Bitcoin stood for and should be compared together, Bitcoin just a payment method or internet money which doesn't require anyone to invest 10$ to reap 50$. Though, with a long-term investment with Bitcoin this can be visible and achievable.

There is More proof and evidence that it is ponzi.

State the evidence or remain silent forever!.

I Don't mind If its ponzi but i Don't want to exit too late but not too early so When is best time to exit?
You should mind when it's ponzi but sincerely, it isn't  ponzi scheme bruh. The context of your exit could be wrong becasue the technology is here to stay and not just for a while, So, there shouldn't be an exit route except for profit taken to return back again.
