1  Local / Română (Romanian) / Re: Oare piata este manipulata ? spre a fi nesupravegheata ? on: Today at 07:18:58 AM
Pretul a crescut asa repede, in doar cateva luni, iar apoi in doar 2-3 zile, scade cat a crescut in 2 saptamani?

Corectii de acest tip sunt normale dupa cresteri atat de spectaculoase. Pur si simplu unii decid sa isi incaseze profitul, iar cand e vorba de unii foarte mari, cei mici intra in panica si vand si ei.

Miscarile acelea ale pretului de 1000 + in doar 15 minute? Sunt impresionante, iar unii experti ar spune ca este vorba de o influenta din partea programelor avansate.

Poate sa fie, sau poate sa nu fie. Jocurile de pump and dump sunt pe piata nereglementata .. de cand exista ea. Atat ca acum e nevoie de sume mult mai mari pentru a face miscari care sa se simta.
Manipularile in social media (in special FUD) si softuri avansate (boti de trading) sunt si ele foarte necesare.
Doar ca asemenea manipulari pot sa dea sau nu roade. Uneori se obtine un efect de domino, alteori nu. Si cand nu se obtine, se pot pierde foarte multi bani. (Cand se obtine, se castiga.)
O alta chestie demonstrata (mai mult sau mai putin) matematic este ca "shorting" aduce mult mai putini bani pe termen lung decat "holding".
Asa ca nu stiu, povestea cu manipularea pietei nu e foarte "solida".

I read some news that they are claiming Bitadress and brainwallet adress may be unsafe.

Which website are you using for creating paper wallets in safe? I always used bitadress. I never experienced bad issues. But I am not sure I can use it anymore.

As it was already replied in the other thread, the Brain wallets are not really safe, paper wallets are okay. And Bitaddress is, from what I know, one of the best options (if you generate offline, and so on and so on).

Seems like fear.

It is fear. He doesn't understand it, he heard some things - some true, some not - and this is the result.
In the antiquity he may have been worshiping it. Now he thinks he can just throw in some regulations. No. Some regulations are necessary, but mostly for the exchanges. And they have to be global, meaning a lot of discussions between the countries on this, else some may lose their share from the cake (the multi billion $ crypto industry and the related taxes).
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Stable Coins? on: Today at 06:11:10 AM
What Stable coins you like and use?

I don't like and I don't use stable coins. At least not directly.
While normal cryptocurrencies are about not trusting anyone, with stable coins you have to trust the issuer, which, especially in case of Tether is problematic: no proper audits, a lot of bad news over time, quite a lot of fluctuations in the price.

Yes, stable coins have their use, from arbitrage to various services. That's why I said I didn't use stable coins directly: I may have been using services that use stable coins.
From what I see stable coins may be used by some companies for interfacing crypto payments with fiat world.

Unfortunately they can be also used for bad things, especially if they are not backed by the amount of "hard money" they should. And, sorry, but until this issue is 100% fixed, stable coins are generally more bad than good for the ecosystem.

When he told us about the transaction, the best fee was about 50 sat/vbyte. Now it's 23. If the transaction still not confirmed, he should post the tx id so we can look and give advises based on the reality.

7  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: is there any way to locate an address i sent btc to? on: July 18, 2019, 02:39:17 PM
i think it worked thank you. if it say "unconfirmed" does it mean the receiving wallet didn't accept/receive the btc? if so, how/when will i receive it back?

Unconfirmed means that the transaction is not saved into the blockchain yet, so it's not permanent yet. (edit: and yes, the target wallet didn't receive it yet; maybe it can see it, but surely it means nothing for now.)
Depending on the tx fee you've used and how busy the network is, when one of the following blocks is mined, your transaction may be included and will be saved into the blockchain. Then it'll start increasing the number of confirmations.
If your fee was very small and the network very busy, it will be rejected, but that'll take a number of days (I think that's 3 days, but I'm not 100% sure).

thank you very much guys i truly agree with you i will try to be more safer in the future. for now, i have more BTC in my electrum wallet, i am trying to send it to a new location and get the pop up again. learnt my lesson and not pressing on the links, tho when i press OK it resumes to the wallet default page. what should i do? how do i manage to send the BTC without falling into the scam?

That scam popup comes out only on old/outdated Electrum wallet. You have to get the latest version, but you have to get it from the official website
Also it won't hurt if you check the signature.

If you have the latest Electrum, please make a screenshot with that popup.

How we can get liquidity for crypto to crypto in an Exchange??

Liquidity should increase with the number of traders (or speculators) using the platform.
New exchanges usually offer either reduced fees or no fees at all for specific periods of time to get the traders come there.
Some others offer certain bonuses in coins that cannot be withdrawn, but can be used to pay the trading fees.

I guess that some liquidity providing bots can be also be made in a similar way as the arbitrage bots work, just their owner has to configure them very well in order to not lose too much money and also stay at good prices for the coin pairs.
10  Economy / Gambling / Re: The Biggest Crypto Lottery on: July 18, 2019, 10:00:22 AM
The lottery has partnered with Coinbase and Wirex, two of the most trusted institutions in the crypto industry.

I don't know where this "newspaper" has its info, but I didn't find anything about Coinbase or Wirex. I checked Wirex' twitter where they announce everything; but this is missing.
Also the use of name of German National 6aus49 Lottery is used a lot, but actually doesn't mean much:

It is important to note that we are not connected or affiliated to the German National 6aus49 Lottery
11  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Noob question. Is there a standard index for cyptocurrencies? on: July 17, 2019, 07:25:01 PM
Is there something like a dow jones for cyptocurrencies?

Composite indexes are not too common for crypto, especially because most of them you can buy only if you buy Bitcoin first.

Bitcoin: if you trust more the stock exchanges, maybe you will prefer to look for Bitcoin as NYXBT (NYSE), although the most indicator for Bitcoin current median price is
And for all the coins, is the most used website.
12  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Btc dump. It is time for some alts to recover against BTC on: July 17, 2019, 01:52:56 PM
There may be a great time for some coins and tokens and the fact that 2 token have just received green light from SEC (!!) should also help.

SEC Begins Green-Lighting Token Offerings

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission recently made history when it green-lighted two token offerings under Regulation A+. “This is the first time in U.S. history that a crypto token offering has received SEC qualification,” one of the two qualified issuers proclaims.

Send first to your OWN wallet create by YOU,kid, oh my god man,i really dont want to call you dumb or anything but,ah forget it ,i'm not gonna lose my time with you,the job is done,speak what you want junior,stop replying to this dude,there's people sending pm's to my skype  because of the job

Although I don't know the whole discussion, I tend to believe @dandan1010 is right.
1. Private discussion - OP wants to hide something.
2. OWN wallet means the the owner and only the owner holds the private key. If it's a service "offering" that wallet, it's not OWN and the true owner of the wallet may or may not allow a withdrawal.

OP, you can prove me I'm wrong by posting publicly the whole story.

U.S congressman
"Even the Chinese with their firewall and their extreme intervention in society could not kill #bitcoin.....
You can't kill bitcoin"

They start to figure that out. And now they also have a good window of opportunity for buying. Will they use it? Naaaah...
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: July 17, 2019, 10:47:56 AM
More important what dumb f*** still don't own BTC

Guess what, the world is full of them Smiley

A special category is made of the ones that believe they own BTC, but all they have is an account in a web application.
Of the two categories, I don't even know who to feel sorry for  Cheesy
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Fastest way to sync a crypto wallet? on: July 17, 2019, 10:19:47 AM
if I'd download a "bootstrap.dat"

For quite some time - clearly more than a year - using bootstrap.dat was no longer faster than simply letting the wallet sync.
What you could do for speed would be wired internet connection, since usually it's more stable and faster than WiFi and having the data folder (even temporarily) on SSD.
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: Btc $300 on: July 17, 2019, 08:48:55 AM
Could Bitcoin's price return to $300 again this year?

Heh, now probably you think that Bitcoin is expensive...

If it will ever go again to 300$ you will wonder if it will go to 10$.
If it will reach 30000$ you will think that it's expensive and you should have bought at 9600$.

Don't worry, you are not alone. It's hard to decide if an investment worth it or not. Take your time and study. The good thing is that Bitcoin has ups and downs, giving plenty of opportunities to buy for the ones that are decided.

He says that Bitcoin and other crypto is used for drugs and other illegal activities.

Well US dollar is still the king or the coke, isn't it? So what's this about, he's complaining for losing "market share"?  Cheesy
20  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Warning! Be careful when you copy and paste bitcoin address from Electrum wallet on: July 16, 2019, 08:08:42 AM
But this still applies, no ?
On the computer malware could steal any data/files/etc. which the user (i.e. your kid) has access too (ignoring UAC exploits).

As simple user he has limited options for "installing" new things. He has access only to the non-system partitions and only his user keys in registry.
The malware will run only when the kid is playing. It's bad, but it cannot damage what's important.
And in my case he will also have to get over the Internet Security's "Auto-Containment"  Wink

One of the most dangerous things you can install on your mobile is a custom keyboard, which acts as a keylogger.
And on windows.. well.. it is not really hard to implement a keylogger.

I know, I've done a super-simple one in my 3rd year at Uni.  Wink
That was in MS-DOS/Win95. Now everything is much easier.

Unfortunately this does not apply to OP's problem (clipboard hijacking), since this is readable for any application on android.

So, to get on-topic again, this also wouldn't have had him protected against this kind of malware.
I mean.. you could theoretically forbid applications to access the clipboard, but this also means you can't paste in them anymore.

I am no way saying that android is secure and windows is not.. however it is much easier to have your mobile clean than a windows computer.

But shared devices create new problems per se, whether smartphone, computer, tablet, etc.

That's correct. At least for clipboard hijacking user's double check is something easy to do and should become almost a reflex.
Bitsler has this implemented at withdraw - it asks the user double check a few parts of the address for sure. But for a wallet to do this.. I don't know, it could be annoying for many users.
