1  Other / Meta / Re: [CHARTS]Yearly, Monthly & Weekly Overview Of The Unofficial Nigeria Local Board on: September 22, 2021, 04:15:09 PM
I always wondered why the admins didn't opt for creating an Ex-Yu board, for example, instead of having a Croatian local and then a separate Serbian thread.
Yep, it is interesting indeed, especially considering the fact that Parazyd asked exactly that in [REQ] Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian section in the "Other Languages" forum. Maybe theymos decided to make Croatian as from what I can see, it was way more active than Serbian topic while Bosnian was created years later.

Both Croatians and Serbs speak and understand "Bosnia," it would make more sense to rename the local board to Bosnian local board to give the two countries equal rights
I am sorry, but you are talking about stuff you know little (or nothing) about if you think that this would make any sense to change the name now or that would make people from Serbia writing more there, as situation regarding Balkan countries and languages is extremely complicated and always gets political.

the Serbians will always be a minority on that board, and the topic of discussion is focused on what's going on in Croatia; bringing in a Serbia discussion will be seen as off-topic. Feedom is gold, I understand why they needed a separate board.
It's true that they are minority, but some of the most active members of Croatian boards are from Serbia and I think that both them and Croatian board are benefiting from them being active there, despite the fact that they can't really talk much about crypto stuff that is going on in Serbia (at least not open specific topics about it).

Since purpose of this thread (I guess) is to show your strength and get your own local board (which you definitely deserve and I am sure that you will eventually get), wouldn't it make more sense to share those charts in Request for Nigeria local board?

- ... any other?
I know some people that are buying luxury watches  (Omega, Rolex etc) as a sort of investment. Allegedly they even increase in price once each of the series is sold out.

I am personally still holding majority in BTC, but plan is to get some real estate too, just have to decide what and where. Mostly likely it will be apartment that I can rent via airbnb in the meantime.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Crypto Scammers put bad impact to Our Government about Bitcoin Transections. on: September 21, 2021, 06:52:50 PM

I think Digital Currency like Crypto isn't getting much popularity because of these Scammers.They are one of the most strong reason why Government's aren't showing interest on Crypto Transections.

Disagree with the bolded part. Government don't like things that they can't control, or that don't know how to control, at least for now, hence they don't like Bitcoin. What they don't mind though is getting profit from it via taxes.

What I would like to know though is how that scammer bought BMW; using crypto, or fiat money? Cheesy
4  Economy / Economics / Re: [LIST] Countries that own bitcoin on: September 21, 2021, 04:52:15 PM
The list is far larger.

United states have already seized some bitcoins from criminal activities, which they own now. I think that it is also likely other countries are doing the same:

I also found this link from Investopedia, whcih mentions United States, Bulgaria, Sweden and North Korea as hoarding bitcoin.

Imho, it doesn't make sense to include those countries on the list of those just because they temporarily own some seized  bitcoin as they will sell it off anyway, like they usually do with the seized stuff. For all we know, some of those countries may sold it already.

But yeah, I think it's way too early for lists like this.

5 reporta ti nece oduzeti vise od 1 minute vremena dnevno, pa sve sto trebas je kliknuti na "report to moderator" i napisati zasto prijavljujes - a to moze biti doslovno jedna ili 2 rijeci (spam/signature spam). Po toj logici onaj tko je dnevno aktivan na forumu i potrosi 1 minutu dnevno na prijavu losih postova moze mjesecno sakupiti 150 prijava na sto ce utrositi oko 30 minuta vise ili manje. E sad kada to pomnozimo sa 12 mjeseci netko bi se zaista upitao mozemo li bolje iskoristiti tih 6 sati zivota?

30k reportova u svakom slucaju nije lako natuci i bas zahtjeva da se redovno i cesto reporta (najvjerojatnije u altcoin sekcijama koje su pune spama) ali recimo ovih mojih ~1500 se da bez da u biti i primjetis. Ono browsam forum i vidim debilnu genericnu temu u Bitcoin Discussion temi, naravno report. Isto tako sa postovima. Pa kad se ovima koji otvaraju teme i odgovaraju u takvim temama obrise dovoljno postova, mozda i promjene praksu. Svi seru kako je forum postao signature campaign circlejerk ( i nisu u krivu kad to kazu) i da nema normalnih razgovora, ali eto kad netko pokaze malo volje da se to proba promjeniti, opet nevalja.

Inace, @suchmoon je napravio browser ekstenziju [HACK] One-click mod report, not for the faint of heart koja jos dodatno ubrzava reportanje, i stvarno postaje pickin dim jer se ne treba otvarati dodatan tab i upisivati razlog za report, tj unaprijed si postavis par razloga i samo rokanje kad vidis shitpost.

A opet, možda sam samo pogrešno shvatio zajebanciju. Ako jesam, sorry.
Vec si trebao skuziti dkbit98 i njegov nacin zajebancije. Cheesy

Those first few have some crazy number of reports, keep it up!

Considering how less active I have been for the last 4-5 months months I must say that I am surprised that i ended up being in top 10. Then again, it means that not many people are bothering with that anymore which is not a surprise as reporting is usually a thankless job.

As @The Pharmacist said, maybe its time for some badges as that would certainly boost the future numbers.
7  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [SCAM] Goldario- ponzi scheme promising 200%+ profit! on: September 20, 2021, 11:08:13 AM
Hopefully they stop doing this BS and move on and do something legitimate. I feel bad to those people that bought when the pump happened and at the same time doesn't know about Goldario and how they are a pump and dump scheme, this is what they get for not doing some research before investing.
To be honest, I don't feel sorry for them because it was bound to happen as they are led by pure greed and nothing more so if it didn't happen with Goldario, it would happen with something else.. What I hope though is that they learned the valuable lesson and will avoid similar mistakes in the future.
8  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [SCAM] Goldario- ponzi scheme promising 200%+ profit! on: September 20, 2021, 06:34:28 AM
This is almost a year old accusations and I am pretty surprised and appalled that they're still doing fine and at the same time has been able to pump the prices. I wish that no one has fallen for this scam so badly.
Yep, they are still alive and kicking, but I dont think that they are doing fine. ICO price of GLD was 1 USD and currently it's around 0.07 USD which is a 93% drop, meaning everyone that invested got rekted badly. Add on that all those that bought GLD during that pump when price went up 1000% and you got quite a few people loosing their money over this scammy project.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Found Hal Finney? on: September 20, 2021, 06:22:23 AM
Anyway I'm quite interested in finding out who satoshi wasn't, in my much longer effort to figure out who satoshi was.
I think that majrority of us at some point contemplated and tried to "figure out" who Satoshi is (me too) but once I realized that bitcoin creator being anonymous is one if its strengths, I stopped with that.

Regarding Hal Finney, I wish he was behind Bitcoin, but unfortunately I don't think that he was.
10  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Countries Where Bitcoin Is legal or banned. on: September 18, 2021, 08:10:46 AM
Where is Nigeria? I could not see Nigeria. Bitcoin and other decentralized currencies are banned by the CBN in Nigeria but not by any of the three arms of government (legislative, executive and judiciary), especially the legislative arm. The rate of bitcoin and other crypto adoption in Nigeria was never negatively affect by the CBN ban.
There it is, i don't know how you missed it. Still baffles me though that Bitcoin has such an undefined status in Nigeria despite the popularity, unfortunately, instead using this to improve your country and maybe attract more capital with favorable crypto laws.

Countries where Bitcoin is neither legal nor illegal

- Nigeria: In Nigeria banks and other financial agencies are not allowed to deal with cryptocurrency but bitcoin have not been targed legal or illegal in Nigeria.

Edit: OP beat me to it by 20 seconds
11  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [SCAM] Goldario- ponzi scheme promising 200%+ profit! on: September 18, 2021, 07:55:52 AM
Goldario is a digital share based Token, which is going to Launch today in Crypto Exchange on 15th September, 2021, the block processors were not a hefty scheme or committed as profit return with 200%, Goldario had always mentioned it as an extra benefit or reward to earn for token holders until Token Launches in Exchanges.
Nice launch at the XT.COM by the way lol. By the the looks of it, you performed classic pump and dump which I am not surprised you did. After all, you hired thread bumpers t fake the interest in yoyr yur project (thread has been deleted now but archived version can be found here

Healthy and organic looking chart, no questions about it. Cheesy

12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: My hardware store now accepts Bitcoin! on: September 18, 2021, 07:42:45 AM
Well, welcome to the club, mate! Smiley Let's hope we were both wrong, and all those merits and good wishes were well deserved by OP. But implementing Lightning Network within 24 hours with "4 different persons"? I wish it was true. At this pace we'll be using Lightning Network all over the world in no time! Smiley
Yep, the bolded part is a major red flag. as we all know how rarely Lightning Network is used. I know bunch of people in real life that are into crypto and maybe 2-3 ever bothered to test LN, let alone bough something with it(talking about people that are into crypto for 4-5+ years, now some newbies) ,and now OP sets it up in his store and basically the same day 4 people used it to buy something.

Pure bs if you ask me, but as we can see people are happy to hear anything positive  and not stop to think whether it makes sense or not.

Dream team 100%. Smiley
Počeo sam se ozbiljno brinuti za Spamkovica ali je nekako upao u zadnjoj sekundi, a menadzeru je ovo kobna greška što ih je obojicu prihvatio u istu kampanju, ali barem se mi ne moramo brinuti za lokalnu aktivnost dok traje kampanja.
Potajno sam se nadao da ce se njih dvojica opet prijaviti u Bitvest gdje bi njihov skill najvise dosao do izrazaja i od kojeg bi nas board imao najvise dobiti, ali dobro, nije ni ovo Cheesy

Napravi neku svoju gambling temu, nemoguće da mena ništa zanimljivo za tebe.
Mislim da je Rikafip pisao za filmove i oskar u istoj sekciji.
Da, moze se fakat svasta utrpati u tu gambling sekciju, samo moras uklopiti i gambling dio u cijelu pricu, da ne bi tema bila premjestena.
15  Local / Hrvatski (Croatian) / Re: Pregled Bitcointalk Signature-Ad kampanja on: September 14, 2021, 06:02:49 PM

16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How has Bitcoin Changed your life? on: September 14, 2021, 03:31:59 PM

Damnnnn, the sassssss.
The very first post on this forum, and you are promoting crypto exchange (wrapped up in a thread) and yet you get offended by being called for doing an obvious thing. Hell, you even said it by yourself that you are Coin Corner marketing executive. You are just doing your job I guess...but much learn you must, young padawan.

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How has Bitcoin Changed your life? on: September 14, 2021, 03:18:40 PM
lives change when you have some BTC and its price shoot to mars. if you only have few, your life still change since you have something to watch out and pray for the price to go up.

coincorner is a philippine btc company, what is your role there? kaibigang naomi, any position available to apply for?
Her role is to promote Coin Corner exchange on bitcointalk via opening threads on Bitcoin discussion board and engaging people. By the looks of it, she is succeeding in her role Cheesy
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: My hardware store now accepts Bitcoin! on: September 14, 2021, 02:59:44 PM
Well, that would be very unfortunate if you were right, but I'm afraid that was exactly the case. The guy was last active yesterday here, but he didn't respond to any questions in this thread.

I didn't give him any money or merit, and yet I feel scammed in a way.

Please, OP, prove I was wrong.
Another interesting thing is his merit history and the only account (so far) he sent merit to, newbieexcro. Check his post history and you will find some similarities like @excro claiming to own small electronics shop, while wnet owns hardware store, both applying to same merit giveaway threads almost one after the other etc.

edit; reading this post again, bitcointalk got me really paranoid. I mean, I am naturally suspicious to everything, but this this forum brought me to a completely new level Cheesy

19  Other / Meta / Re: Did you notice that forum have fewer trolls in 2021? on: September 13, 2021, 05:47:19 PM
If we take a look at stats in last few years we can see that usage of that word is also declining compared to year 2020, 2019 and especially 2018.

Year 2018 has 23,431 mentioning of word scammer.
Year 2019 has 16,982 mentioning of word scammer.
Year 2020 has 14,052 mentioning of word scammer.
Year 2021 has   5,384 mentioning so far and we only have 3 months left in this year... does it mean there is a less scam and scammers in forum?
Since there is constant decrease of forum activity, its kinda logical to assume that number of scammers will decrease too, as they have less potential victims, and as you said they are moving onto more "suitable" platforms like Telegram.

Its pretty much the same situation in scam accusation board which is way less active this year than it was in 2020. Unless there are less scam busters this yeas and that's the cause of sharp decline in the amount of posts. (I know I am way less active on that front than I was before).

@mods that are following this thread.

Yesterday I reported low value thread called 7 crypto acronyms you need to know as it was just a copy/paste of an article without providing any personal opinion. Report has been marked as good, but it's still there so I guess that you just forgot to delete it. Looking at @Nathrixxx seems like that is his MO, and more of a rule than an exception.
