Holding, trading, sometimes I use for basic needs. Used to gambling, but stopped it for a while.

First of all, because you need to know how to sell your idea. Secondly, investors usually have a choice and doesn't spend their money without being sure, that they'll not loose them.
Also, investors nowadays may be afraid of getting into scam.

I think nurture matters. But even a nice guy can be corrupted, I agree.
But that doesn't mean that even 'evil' guy can't change his mind and behavior. Call me naive. Smiley
224  Economy / Trading Discussion / What are the longest fixed rates that were offered to you? on: September 27, 2019, 03:54:34 PM
Hi guys. Here's to discuss fixed rates and its lenght. I'm using Trezor wallet and this morning I found out that now they are fixing an exchanging rate for like 15 mins, cause of the partnership w/ changelly. That was actually one of the longest fixed rate I've seen yet.
So now I'm wondering, is there any list of services that indicate the duration of a fixed rate?
What are the longest fixed rates that were offered to you?
225  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Fiat-to-crypto: is it safe? on: September 26, 2019, 07:05:39 PM
Hey everyone. I'm new to crypto and I wanted to ask if there's a point of buying crypto with a credit card.
I found a lot of exchanges where users can easily (as they say) buy cryptocurrencies with their bank card. I mean, at binance they request like a lot of data about me, including my phone number or date of birth.
Aren't they selling my private info (that would explain 0,25$ fee on changelly for example), and doesn't that conflicts with the statement about my anonymity?

That would be fair for every fiat-to-crypto exchange, so my question is: do you use it and is it really safe?
Those are the KYC procedure you have to go through. The exchange also (I think) has no say in this since they are bound to do so because of legal reasons. People would easily launder money if there were no such verification. I know this defeats the purpose of using crypto currencies but there are currently no option right now.
About your data. No one is sure or can know if they are selling it or not.

OK, but doesn't the statement about that legal reasons sort of... devaluing the whole non-KYC advantage from other exchanges? Still don't understand.

Interesting observation.
Well, if personal information from Google or Facebook is that reliable, why don't the exchanges use them? There are people who will never use phones camera, finger prints sensors or biometric authentication features on their phones.. .  Internet devices won't have much on those kind of people. This is probably why verifying users identities via social media isn't used much.


I disagree. Even if you don't use any biometric authentication or your phone camera -- until you actually have a phone, you're translating data about your location (whether you use VPN or not), installed apps and so on.
It's not that I'm all about conspiracy, but prove me wrong.
As for verifying identity via social media -- it may not be using cause this isn't your passport. But that doesn't mean, that you cannot be identified as a real person by your phone traffic.

There's a way. A secret one.
Called 'deficit of calories'. Eat less, burn more calories. Everything else is marketing.

Strange question. Because of the politics? Economy? There are too many options, all are obvious.

I think you should go through the exchanges Terms of Service or FAQ to understand how they handle your private information...Not like they will be very transparent about it though but little explanation is better than nothing.
If you want anonymity/privacy you could use decentralized exchanges like Bisq.


Sure, Terms of Service or FAQ may be useful, but at the same time lack of transparency gives service an opportunity to use the it in their favor.

Came from the thread-near-by to say that robots are love Grin Though they are a bit silly (for now) but it's only a matter of time before people learn how to make them smarter and more useful.

Something that involves a person's vision? It's hard (and I don't even think that possible) to imitate abstract thinking.
233  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Is Crypto Becoming More Accepted? on: September 11, 2019, 03:20:36 PM
Of course its becoming more accepted and that's good to hear. Literally yesterday I read about banks in Europe that became crypto friendly - https://changelly.com/blog/blockchain-in-banking-industry-use-cases. I mean look at the number.
Hope that'll go further
234  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Here to discuss UNUS SED LEO coin on: September 09, 2019, 03:32:21 PM
Here to discuss UNUS SED LEO coin. Who has heard anything about it?
Many articles assuming LEO has its growth potential, despite its specific.
I'm new to crypto, and I wanted to understand how LEO can cope with the crisis in iFinex. Also, many experts are saying that the coin is good for experienced investors (I read it on changelly blog). Why so?
235  Economy / Service Discussion / Apps for exchanging on: September 09, 2019, 03:26:21 PM
Can anyone recommend good apps on android for exchanging? What do you usually use? Was there anything new released recently? I'm new at this and interested in some non-custodial exchangers.

238  Other / Off-topic / Choosing etherium wallets on: September 03, 2019, 03:43:27 PM
Hey. At the moment I'm in the process of choosing the wallet for etherium (bye, paper). I've read a lot of theoretical stuff about different types of storages, but I also wanted to know about your experience. Any advice?
Thinking of KeepKey or Trezor.
239  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Best country for crypto on: September 02, 2019, 01:33:55 PM
I'd say Japan, but it depends.If you're well versed in unsettled laws - that's one. As for me, I appreciate crypto friendly environment. Portugal is also becoming interesting lately.
