Changelly has issues and scam accusations as well when the amount involved is much larger so trusting that anonymous for bigger transaction is risky.Like you said I am also using binance nowadays but not too often since I lost interest on every shitcoin now only HODLing the coins.
I agree about the fact of accusations, but once you start searching reviews about other exchanges - even Binance had some doubtful moments. Definitely not protecting Changelly, just trying to keep in mind that the platform exists for several years and still has its benefits, like those I mentioned earlier. Dunno.
To the rest of your message - ok, got you.  Smiley

I agree Binance is great, but it's not completely perfect, that's all I'm saying. And... I wouldn't say that simplicity is its main advantage.
203  Economy / Exchanges / Pros and cons of your exchange on: November 12, 2019, 01:43:52 PM
I often use Binance, but it doesn't fit me completely, so I'm combining it with other exchanges. Before Coinbase increased their fees, I used it as well.
Now my working combination is Binance (ok for large amounts, safe enough, has a good reputation) + Changelly (fast transactions, fees to crypto are ok, responsive support team).
Do you have the same pairs of platforms? If so, which ones?

How did you choose your current exchange? Does it suit you completely?
204  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin and philantropy on: November 05, 2019, 05:37:11 PM
When we're talking about cryptocurrency, we donít usually discuss philanthropy ó donating to charity isnít something often considered. Most of the talks are all about earning, mining and trading crypto.
That's totally ok, but I believe that cryptocurrency may have some great features that could have a huge impact on charities and charitable giving.

I'd like to ask if you know any charity organizations (verified, of course) that accept BTC as a donation. And if so, which ones? I could only find that list, but it's quite short.

What's your opinion about Bitcoin donations? Did you ever donate your crypto to charity organizations? Why?

I'm not trying now to prove my position or to impose my opinion on you. In general, I donít care about my opinion, because only objective facts are important. That is why I want to advise you to study the effect of narcotic substances on the human body. Moreover, the researches that you will study should be objective, and not paid by interested parties. I will say in advance that I have studied a lot of research on this subject. And the conclusion is this: any drugs extremely negatively affect a person. Increase the risk of many underlying diseases.
I repeat once again, this is not my opinion, this is an objective conclusion of scientific research.
It is strange for me to watch how people have lost their vigilance and so calmly inject drugs into their lives. Just try to study the topic before drawing your conclusions. Peace! Smiley
206  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Earning crypto on games - are you serious? on: October 18, 2019, 02:21:15 PM
As for me those games and casinos are made to distract you from really important projects in the crypto world.
207  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Earning crypto on games - are you serious? on: October 17, 2019, 02:34:38 PM
Never played them (games looks like a total waste of time for me), but I don't think it's totally worthless. Besides it might be something about pioneering - I mean if you came to the sphere before it became too popular, you may actually earn something.
208  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Gram vs Libra: is there any difference? on: October 16, 2019, 03:22:33 PM
I won't waste your time retelling the latest news about Libra and how it became non-welcomed among politics, banks, etc.
There's also TON project, which seems more acceptable among society, exchange platforms, communities, etc.

Comparing the feedback ó while Gram is 'delighted to be listed' by different exchanges (quote from here), Libra's just... 'not money' (quote from here).
So, could you explain, what's the difference between Libra and Gram and is there future for Gram coin?
209  Economy / Economics / Re: What will happen if the all countries convert to cryptocurrency? on: October 08, 2019, 11:49:21 AM
Now that more and more countries are starting to go cashless (http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20180427-does-a-cashless-society-benefit-everyone), is it possible that we also start converting to cryptocurrency? If that happens, what do you think are the advantages and disadvantages? Paying virtually is very convenient for me as I do not have to bring cash and it prevents petty theft but what is the disadvantage?


It's happening by small steps. Like, couple hours ago I found out that in Japan they let people make donations via cryptocurrency. And that's indeed more convenient when you have an opportunity to pay virtually.
Who needs paper pieces anyway?
210  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Libra the new crypto king on: October 08, 2019, 11:02:06 AM
That's just so funny to read after the recent news about PayPal becoming the first member to exit Facebook's Libra Association. Don't know about 'crypto king', OP.
211  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Should move to BTC? on: October 08, 2019, 10:58:10 AM
To all who say that BTC rising - yeah, but it also quite unpredictable and fast. I mean, over the few hours BTC raised to 8300$ and then again fell to 8000$. So I would recommend holding your XRP and buy BTC only if you'll see it raised quickly.
212  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: I sent passport id photo... on: October 08, 2019, 10:45:59 AM
Don't worry, OP.  KYC procedure isn't that dangerous as might seem. Yes, it's pretty much private and sensitive info, and yes, lots of users hate it (including me). But think rationally - what could possibly happen with the info of your passport id photo?
213  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Did fixed rate system ever saved your money? on: October 03, 2019, 12:16:19 PM
Here's to discuss fixed-rate and its benefits. Besides the deterring speculation, preventing depreciation of the currency and so on - did fixed exchange rate ever help you to avoid losing coins? I mean I saw an announcement about 15 mins fixed rate on changelly app, but how useful this time is? Do you pay attention to such benefits?
Interested to hear your own stories.
Did you mean every 15 mins bitcoin price will change? If that so, I think it is good for those who invested a huge amount like for maybe 100btc or 200btc. Small changes on a price, it is already a big and huge change in their investment as well. For me, it is really helpful for those big investors that if the price will go up even for 1% then it's already a big change to their investment. Vice verse when the price will go down as well.
So does it mean that this feature is designed only for those who exchange only huge amounts? For everyone else, it doesn't have any value, am I correct?
If so, won't they just refund according to my rates as any centralized service would do?  I mean in case if within those 15 mins a crash will happen
214  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: What are the longest fixed rates that were offered to you? on: October 02, 2019, 04:24:36 PM
What are the longest fixed rates that were offered to you?

This doesn't matter. 15 minutes is really a lot, but it makes no difference actually. You can just reload the page and you will receive an updated rate.

If  a crash within those 15minutes happens (which is highly unlikely), changelly will simple refuse to make your conversion. It is a centralized service, they will look at your rates and refund you.

So it really doesn't matter, and you will not make money by using a long fixed rate.
Doesn't coinpayments lock the rate for like 6 hours? 15 minutes sounds very short especially if the transaction has to confirm within that timespan.

Now I'm even more confused. If 15 mins is short, then why they even mark this as something worth noticing on their site?
And, if 15 mins is a lot - then where the 6 hours came from? What's the deal with this time difference in hours?..
215  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best Time to Sell Altcoins on: October 02, 2019, 04:08:34 PM
Hy guys. Most of the time I use to trade with altcoins and I use to sell altcoins when they are above ICO price and giving some profit. I do not hold atlcoins for long time. What if you have some altcoins, what will be your strategy to use that coins? Is there any specific best time for every altcoin and when it is going well and we should sell ?? 

How I see it: at the end of the year or after I make profit on my initial investment.
But, of course, some alts are good to hold in long term.
216  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: [Alert] About Facebook Libra Coins! on: October 02, 2019, 03:40:28 PM
Thanks.
Not that I was going to do anything with Libra, but the topic is a good reminder for those who's going to trade.
217  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will crypto really go to zero? on: October 02, 2019, 03:36:32 PM
Back in the day, Vitalik once said that crypto will be going to zero. There has been many concerns about the longevity of cryptocurrency as a serious form of money, given that it's relatively unstable within the mainstream world. It's been 10 years since Bitcoin was created where crypto has had its ups and downs. However, many are afraid that crypto will be going to zero as the blockchain hype ends and governments start rolling their own digital currencies. When we take a look at most cryptocurrencies on the market, most of them aren't even useful at all. Perhaps, the only one is Bitcoin but it's terrible as a currency for daily transactions.

Which is why, I'm starting to wonder if crypto will really go to zero in the future? If this happens, then most of us will lose our hard-earned money as crypto becomes worthless. What are your thoughts? Huh

I think not, but the worst scenario for me looks similar. Crypto worth almost nothing, there are lots of shitcoins and scam and... Oh wait.

Mass Effect
Especially 1st one. Back in 2007 it was something like a breakthrough for me.
219  Other / Off-topic / Re: Ghosts. True or false. on: October 02, 2019, 03:29:01 PM
I think the whole ghost idea is something about people not being capable to accept their mortality. And no, I don't believe in ghosts. Death is death Smiley

Yes. Life after death. Because you are too much of an egoist to think about the world without you.

lmao
I think you guys are talking about two different topics.
220  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Alts you won't invest in on: September 30, 2019, 04:51:09 PM
A lot of discussions on forum are all about "what coin should I buy? Why?"
Here's the opposite - I want to ask what alts you would never buy and why so.

My example:
Never buy BTT, Tron, Stellar and other coins where the tokens are giving away with all kinds of airdrops. Why? Emission grows with no influx of investors.
Doubting about Peercoin. Hybrid emission system doesn't seem reliable too, though lately PPC began spreading itself via well-known exchanges (changheangel or changelly - don't remember).
+ Libra. Not sure if any explanation needed.
