I think that the bitcointalk topic on exchange fees worth a mention here. While the first website on your list is better than I first expected, I still like our topic more. See Crypto exchanges comparison [trade fee + listing fee + age + mobile app + more!]

This is the first time I see this puzzle

This puzzle was posted before. The first reference I've found on that address here @ bitcointalk is from December 2020, but, indeed, buried in a topic about a completely different (type of) puzzle:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1306983.msg55361483#msg55361483


And usually the fact it's not solved for 1.5 years means that it's too difficult or it has an error.

Silver is a better metal to hold for inflation as there is about 1,500,000 tons mined as I type so finding 2,000,000 tons is unlikely and my fear of silver flooding the market is not so big.

Imho gold is so expensive because it's being hoarded by the central banks and other institutions. It's not only about the scarcity, it's also about the demand.
So the silver example may not be the best, since, although it's indeed scarce, the demand is also not that good.

I don't like this system very much because in case you lose both your A and R keys you will lose everything, and you won't be able to recover your coins.
In case you lose A-key, you will need to buy new A-key because R-key can only be used for backup, and you can't add wallet, add account, add coin or move assets.

While it does look neat, I would not buy it. I don't think that I'd buy a HW that doesn't allow me make an old fashioned non-electronic backup. If that's the only option, I'd simply use cold storage for the relevant funds.

Those legal legal clippings they refer to are a formality, as the letter of the law requires them to do so.

Yep, this is most probably correct.

Therefore, if the funds are not returned to the user at the address from which they came, I will consider this precedent as a fraud.

Indeed, let's see what happens in the next few days. If they still keep the funds, the situation becomes clear.

Note that the feedback has been bumped 48 times: BestChange allows the exchanger to cancel the claim (this happened 20 times). Then, Janyiah can renew the claim (which happened 19 times). That alone is very shady: imagine if any user on Bitcointalk could turn their negative feedback into neutral just by clicking it.

This is indeed a system that can be abused by the exchanges. Not good.
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Bottom? on: July 01, 2022, 11:16:18 AM
I don't see how what he does can be called DCA, if you stick to DCA you have to stick to a schedule and of equal amounts, buying when you have money is nowhere close to it, is just gambling. One of their buys was equal to 1/3 of their total, no average to be seen here..

You do have a point indeed. I'd say that he does the DCA in the same way I do it: buy (periodically) whenever you have some liquidity available.
The thing is that he doesn't always have at hand as much fiat as he'd like. At least that's how I see it.
But you're right. It's not exactly by the book.

In disputa pentru numarul 2 nu ma bag  Cheesy am si eu pretendenti la numarul favorit, asa ca am decis demult sa nu imi mai bat capul.  Cheesy

Ce sa zic, monedele arata super bine, iar faptul ca sunt si cu o valoare adaugata e si mai bine!

Corect.

In privinta premiului in sine, cred totusi ca nu este vorba doar de un set de 3 monede, ci de doua seturi. Cel ptuin, asta inteleg eu din ce a scris OP:

Up for raffle is a loaded mybits series 2 set of three coins!

Cu alte cuvinte, cred ca vor fi ori 2 castigatori, ori doar unul, care va lua insa ambele seturi (toate cele 6 monede in total).

Poate n-am citit eu bine, dar asa inteleg, din ce zice omul...

Aici nu sunt de acord. Chiar am citit de mai multe ori.
* cred ca sunt 6 poze fiindca monedele sunt fata-verso
* cred este vorba de editia a 2-a de mybits (mybits series 2), mai mult, zice "a loaded mybits series 2 set of three coins" (un set de 3 monede mybits editia 2)
A mai zis "Last number of the hash of the block I choose will be the winner", deci e vb de un castigator.

Cel putin eu asa am citit/inteles.

Are the funds returned to the owner?

Nope, they're asking for "supporting documents" (KYC, source of funds) which, from my understanding, the rightful owner doesn't want to send.
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: in which form bitcoin stored on the blockchain? on: July 01, 2022, 08:34:13 AM
(I will basically say what witcher_sense said, but somewhat different, I hope)

i am just asking the form of bitcoin exist.

The bitcoins people have in their wallets "exist" as results of transactions (or UTXO, unspent outputs).
This is "the form" you will find.

once every 10 mins a new bock is addet to the blockchain and 6.25 botcoins are mined. i just ned to nkow those mined coins are looks like what form??

There's a "rule" in bitcoin code that tells to give the miners the right block rewards. But the coins go to miners' wallet also as transactions. The block reward is just a special transaction and the miner, if he doesn't spend it, will have an UTXO in his wallet.
10  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Bottom? on: July 01, 2022, 08:29:25 AM
Now that Michael Saylor and El Salvador have purchased BTC at $19,000, we can be certain that the bottom is nowhere near

You should do a quick search and see what DCA means. Because what Michael Saylor does is DCA. He buys whenever he has money for that, no matter the price. He has done that in bull market, he does that in bear market.
And since he's at a potential loss now (the USD value of what he's bought is smaller than the price he has paid), also means that there's absolutely no correlation between bottom and Michael Saylor's buys.
11  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: SCAM EXCHANGE MONITOR: BestChange on: July 01, 2022, 08:24:18 AM
Unfortunately Bitcoin is not fungible. Unfortunately, since the history of each and every input is viewable by anybody, various businesses can easily become picky in where your coins are coming from or what you are doing with them.

BestChange's case is not unique. Afaik some bigger exchanges may be doing the same. BestChange could mark these exchanges they redirect to, in a way or another, but... there will still be some who fail to read the signs and such classification may also not be great for the business.
What has happened to OP is pretty much not unique also.

I don't understand why people don't read everything thoroughly before sending their money here and there.
I don't understand why people don't test new services with smaller amounts of money, which don't have the potential to "hurt the budget" much in case things go wrong.


Since the service OP was using has stated that it uses KYC/AML, it's somewhat at the limit between scam/stealing and not (although I guess that there's a bigger chance they keep those funds instead of sending them to the authorities). I would certainly avoid them, but I'm hesitant in calling them scammers.
OP should have been taking more precautions and avoid them earlier.

14  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Bitcoin ETF. All questions answered. Why, when and who will get ETF approved? on: June 30, 2022, 02:18:31 PM
So Bitcoin ETF is 'synthetic asset' that tracks Bitcoin price. However, when you buy ETF you don't buy BTC.

That's correct. However, from my knowledge, there can be 2 types of BTC ETFs, of which one makes the ETF actually properly backed with Bitcoin (the entity emitting the ETF have to have that amount of BTC), and the other is not.
My guess is that most people think that all ETF are backed by BTC, hence this instrument could create a buying pressure on the actual bitcoin markets. (And a rise of the price).

Now the question is why pension funds can't buy real BTC, but they can buy its imitation? :-)

I think that Bitcoin has fuzzy legislation on how to do bookkeeping on those acquisitions and many are afraid of that.
Many don't trust the crypto exchanges and businesses, simply because they're very new (and some are also somewhat anti-banking).

So working with USD and with companies you know and trust is a big factor for many.
Even more, keeping your bitcoins safe, as you know, it's not trivial.

So it's a decision I can understand.
15  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Scammed for 25$ on: June 30, 2022, 02:06:27 PM
I will not trust anyone from this piece of shet forum anymore!

You've completely missed the point of this forum. This is not "buy illegal keys" forum.
And on trust, I could indeed give him negative feedback, but if I start that, I would give you too negative feedback as buyer of stolen keys. Shortly, you're no better than the one scamming you.

But the conclusion is partly correct, although a bit late: you should indeed not trust anyone.

17  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: How can I bypass my network administrator with OpenVpn or something else? on: June 30, 2022, 12:32:44 PM
If you're restricted by "your" network administrator, you should think very carefully to the possible consequences of what you're doing.
If "your" administrator is actually the admin of the company you're working for and you're mining with their machines, you may face charges for spending their electricity and maybe also for the extra wear on the hardware. Plus, obviously, the risk of getting fired.

Since I don't expect you earn that much from mining... I think that you should consider thinking it through, instead of finding ways to bypass it.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Need help and advice regarding recovery on: June 30, 2022, 11:48:23 AM
I am inexperienced on recovering your wallet, however, some basics:

1. WSL is a tool you install on Windows 10, tool which allows you run a Linux (you have to install from Microsoft Store) like you'd run any other Windows application (or console application).
2. I may be wrong, but cloning has a pretty good chance to completely miss the clusters marked as deleted or, even more, from a previous partitioning or formatting. Keep this in mind.
3. I think that best would be to get a HDD or SSD (different from the disk you have the valuable data on, but I guess that you already know you should not write absolutely anything onto the valuable disk) you install Linux onto it and run everything under pure Linux (no WSL) and then work on reading all the clusters of the other disk (I don't know with which tool) and scan them for useful data. The valuable HDD will probably stay either as USB disk, either as a secondary HDD.
19  Other / Meta / Re: Do you read unmerited replies? on: June 30, 2022, 11:37:45 AM
I don't know about you guys but these days i found myself ignoring unmerited responses in a topic and tend to only read the merited ones because they're "usually" more relevant to the topic and contain more valuable informations,and in big topics with multiple pages it gets difficult to sort them out.

As already said, this question is a huge failure of logic. If people would do this, it would mean that no posts ever get merited.
I don't even know if this is a real question you had or you're just trying to bring the next part, which was already discussed, in a hope to fish for some merit.

I don't know if this was suggested before (sorry for repeating if it was) but wouldn't it be better if the replies with the most merites be shown at the top (instead of the most recent ones) and so on kinda like a reddit upvote system,or at least to add a sorting option to switch between these two display modes (by time of posting or merites recieved).

Is a system like this feasible,and can we see something like this implemented in the near future ?

Yes, it was discussed before. This is a forum, not a problem solving website like StackExchange. The posts can easily create together a discussion and then the chronology is important. Even more, it can happen that the best answer needs a small correction or completion and that one may get more merit.
All in all, not feasible, sorry.

you should always read the replies before posting so you aren't repeating what someone else has already said. I would recommend this for any thread 3 pages or less.

Very good advice, which unfortunately far too few follow.
20  Economy / Lending / Re: 100$ Loan for 24 months on: June 30, 2022, 10:59:52 AM
This kind of request tends to bring you more red trust than getting you a loan. You should have been reading the sticky post. There's literally no good reason anybody would give you that money as lending (maybe as donation, heh)...
My advise is to remove or lock this topic.
