1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Bear Market Can Be A Waste Of Time or Useful Depending on How We Approach It on: May 28, 2022, 05:55:52 AM
I'd look more at cryptocurrencies that hold utility, keep developing and have a serious community.
Not all active community are really legit, since they can paid a bunch shill accounts.

Do you mean they buy accounts on Telegram and Twitter? I think it is easily observed. A genuine user base takes time to create.
There is marketing for sure and shills are often spamming so much as they did with Doge and Cardano, or earlier with XVG, Iota, Nano, and anything else was pumped.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bear Market Can Be A Waste Of Time or Useful Depending on How We Approach It on: May 26, 2022, 12:39:48 PM
During a bear market, almost every new project is going to fail immediately.
The funds required for the startup to begin will not be there, investors will not fill the presales, and scams will rule.
What could have a small chance to succeed, now has zero.
It takes backing from big exchanges and connections with investors for a project to succeed.

Having said that, I never stopped looking and will keep investing during the bear market appropriately.

But for anyone that considers leaving, know that this market will reward those that stayed. It is the time to educate yourselves.
I've seen even silly spammers changing their ways and realizing there is a lot more everyone can offer by changing their ways.
For now, it is the time we count losses, but also we strengthen and rise to the challenges we face.

Besides the new cryptocurrencies, from my perspective, I'd look more at cryptocurrencies that hold utility, keep developing and have a serious community.

Hello!I guess we all know its more reasonable to invest money into stable projects like BTC/ETH/SOL/ATOM/MATIC/DOT ect, but this isnt what this thread is about.
So if you were to gamble with a certain smaller percentage of your capital, which yet small and unknown projects would you invest into and why?

Let's remove BTC, and ETH. Why do you think Matic, Sol,and Dot are stable projects?

Especially Matic and Sol have proven they are rather unstable with their networks in a poor state.

Russia approved bitcoin as a form of money in order to hedge against the Russian ruble's depreciation and the Biden sanctions. What are your thoughts?

Putin is in favor of establishing bitcoin as a kind of money since he is threatening war and Biden's economic penalties will harm the ruble. He might still use bitcoin to transact in the global economy. I'd want to hear everyone's thoughts on this. Thanks for your response in advance Smiley

Nope. Russia will need to buy $80billion in BTC to cover for the trade balance sheet imports. That would also imply its remaining trading partners will accept BTC.
It would be totally stupid buying 80 billion in BTC since there is not that much available on exchanges and will need to keep buying at prices of 500k and 1million USD if so much Rubble or foreign exchange held by Russia finds an entrance to exchanges or any OTC desks.

It could buy a few million here and there, and those selling will get visits from the feds.

This giving the rich a better chance to be richer, and not to the middle class nor poor.
Ain't this a threat to the future ? Cos I believe, 80% of Bitcoiner's are big time holders.

Thoughts please.
Thank X

What do you mean a threat to the future? What exactly is the future for BTC?

Bitcoin is extremely precious for me to spend.

You are spending fiat though. Why not move everything in Bitcoin then if you consider it to be a currency?

How many BTC are left at the hands of the Trustee?
Will the trustee begin dumping again as in 2018 if the draft fails?

Why would the bankruptcy procedure drop the value of the coins to $485? This sounds irrational.
The BTC assets have appreciated since then, it is not so difficult to adjust the asset price in USD or Yen terms.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Did Twitch secretly end payments with Bitcoin? on: July 20, 2021, 02:00:56 PM
Since we all agree that Bitcoin will not be used for payments of everyday transactions what is the reason to discuss about it?
Maybe some of you haven't realized it yet that Bitcoin shoots for digital gold, not for digital payments. Some of you are in this for 5-6 years, haven't you figured this out already?
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin better than Fiat? on: July 17, 2021, 02:22:11 PM
For the first time in history, money is separated from the state. Bitcoin aims to be an alternative to Fiat currencies by providing financial inclusion to anyone, anywhere in the world. A system governed by mathematics and cryptography will put an end to corruption once and for all. The pioneer cryptocurrency can be used globally without limitations thanks to its decentralized model. People can send cross-border payments in minutes without the need for ID verification, background checks, or credit checks of any kind. This brings a whole new era of financial sovereignty as we know it.

What do you think? Is Bitcoin better than Fiat? If not, why? Is it still too early to tell? Your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance Smiley

I don't know what exactly is this that you mean by Bitcoin. Bitcoin in the form of BTC can't scale on-chain, or devs have abandoned any attempts to scale under what they claim is fears of losing decentralization. Now, you should explore it further if it can replace fiat, with all the third parties and second layers that seem to reduce decentralization and even create custodial problems, or reduce the immutability and create an environment that could censor transactions, increase ID verification and even block transactions, thus reducing financial freedom.

I agree with your idea. But please, tell me what are the red flags with Volt NFT  ?? I personally see the project as pre-funded, it may be overkill imo but not necessarily a bad bounty. Please share mate

Their website wasn't loading twice when I've tried (in different days). Then the next day (yesterday) when I tried again, I got antivirus warning me of phising domain. This alert comes from updated lists in antiviruses, and could be a false flag (althouhg this would also be something extremely rare). The day before, when I first tried to visit it, I checked telegram and it must have been down for many hours since another user was asking the same. Of course, there was no way to know what exactly happened since the telegram was full of bounty spammers posting nonsense and nothing of value was there.
There is no need for me to check further. If the website is not working properly, I'm not going to spend a second more.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Top-5 bounty managers I've worked with on: July 14, 2021, 09:20:53 AM

Irfan and are probably the friendly, professional bounty managers I've worked with. The quality appraisal and successful promotion of the project is the reputation of a manager. I see Royse777 has a lot of projects, but it doesn't seem to be appreciated for its value and growth in my opinion. Project quality is success for managers and it also brings income to employees. I think that is the key factor to evaluate the role and reputation of a bounty manager.

There are some things I don't understand though. When setting a limited number of Twitter bounty hunters, shouldn't there be some kind of quality assessment? I wasn't selected in a bounty by Royce and after checking those that were selected, they were all a bunch of spammers, copy pasting the same sentences all over without making any organic Tweets. After that I've excluded this manager, since I have no intention of sacrificing valuable time, and have spammers selected over my content, no matter if this is just a tweet or a LinkedIn post.
Secondly, I've tried participating in the latest bounty by Yahoo (Volt NFT), but the project has too many red flags and looks like a total scam. I don't just apply to anything, there has to be some fundamentals that will make our time worthwhile. I don't like promoting any scam and when I notice websites going down, and phising alerts I'm staying away.

A final note, all telegram campaings are worthless. No investor will read all these ridiculous posts and feel that this will be a great investment.
In fact all these telegram posts like these are pushing serious investors away:

"All their team members looking good. A Greatest Project & Bring More Opportunity For Us Thanks Project Owners and Team, the project will go to moon"
" [insert project name] is one of the best projects of the year. I look forward to the development of this project. This is a real project with good ratings. Investors are waiting for big profits! valuable ideas well planned, that's why I'm interested and take part in this great project. I believe that this project will attract wealth redistribution for its investors."

and thousands of similar paraphrased nonsense that mean absolutely nothing, and provide negative value to a community, since this is just premade trash quotes.
This is bad to see that bounty managers pay these spammers and projects that accept it are not looking a good investment in my eyes.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Top-5 bounty managers I've worked with on: July 13, 2021, 11:38:49 AM
Yeah that is pretty right mate.
i have also have personal experience with those managers listed above, but one is missing. bountydetective is also another good manager we have. there are other mangers i have worked with and this includes;

Yes, in fact I have participated in many of his bounties, and I wasn't so sure because the payments had been very low in USD terms. But he is alright. The team this guy has are doing fine, checking the projects and of course some of the scams can go undetected for a while. But yes, I think this is also a good manager, after having participated in their bounties.

3. There are still people who has internet access, yet knows nothing about bitcoin. This group don't have interest in bitcoin maybe because they have a stable and permanent busy job which they relied wholly on.

You seem to fall under the fallacy of presuming that everybody thinks just like you. The above assumption is totally wrong.
Firstly, it is like 6 billion people currently with access to the internet. An overwhelming percentage knows what bitcoin is. However, many still think it is a currency you can use on the internet for payments, while this feature has long gone for BTC.

Secondly, you seem to think that the reason someone doesn't want to invest in Bitcoin is that he/she doesn't have a stable and permanent job.
On the contrary, an even more overwhelming majority of those that invest in Bitcoin have a stable job with a stable income.
Moreover, we have seen since last year investment funds, institutions, billionaires, and big companies investing in Bitcoin.
To end this, those that don't have a stable job will probably instead try to reduce their exposure and risk to affordable levels, since they will not have a future income to back their losses in case their investment goes bad.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Has the world become greedier since BTC? on: June 29, 2021, 01:43:36 PM
Since BTC and crypto everyone wants to get rich and earn a lot of $. Everywhere you look it's the same story, be it BTC or any other shitcoin. It's obvious not everyone will make it.

Yeah, getting rich is nice and I also hope it will happen for myself but I feel the society is becoming way too materialistic. Also the greediness level seems very high, everyone want to get more and more.

What's your view on this?

LOL, BTC has no more to do with greed than fiat.  That is one silly assumption.  Maybe you feel greedy when you make money.  Most don't.

He didn't say that BTC has more to do with greed. You just only read the title and replied. Come on, it only takes 10 seconds to read the damn thing.

Anyway, to the OP, the world Sadly is way more materialistic than ever lately, and even more opportunistic and individualistic, which is certainly going to bring negative results. The outcome will be a worse society for the next generation. It's all about grabing the money fast enough right now.

You missed joining or working with Yahoo? then you missed half of your crypto bounty hunting.

back in the days when Yahoo is the most popular and in demand manager in this forum , he gives good payments to thousands of members and lucky that Im one of those.

Yeah. I have read the same and sadly I probably won't be able to participate in major signature campaigns as I'm not going to make it to a higher rank. With this rate, I'll probably rank to a full member after another 8 years.

If I see another social media campaign by Yahoo, I will try to apply for Twitter.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Top-5 bounty managers I've worked with on: June 26, 2021, 02:48:44 PM
the list are almost the best of the forum aside from you missed putting yahoo on the list lol.

These are managers I have applied and had a positive experience from their bounty management. I have only heard of yahoo, and never applied on any of this manager's bounties.
However, from what I've noticed all this time, he is not very active in the social bounties but mostly working with high ranking members of the bitcointalk community for signature campaigns with bitcoin as payment.

I haven't participated in any of those, and never asked since I never met the desired conditions. At least I remember it this way:  even for member status, managers are asking at least 4 merit received in the past 120 days.
I don't have but just 1 in the last 120 days, since no matter what I write, it seems that it doesn't deserve merit. Merit is not up to me to judge anyway.

So, how exactly do you expect me to have an opinion on yahoo? lol

Also I've seen one bounty on social by yahoo(Medusa) but I didn't find the rules appealing or the project to be something special. I don't apply to anything.
Login on to this bounty program/Press Report Button on the sidebar/Submit your proof link"

I don't like this kind of bounties or these rules:
We reserved the right to make changes on any terms if itís reasonable to do so.
We reserved the right to suspend or have the allocation reduced on a certain bounty if we found it underperforming.
We reserved the right to make adjustments and modifications to the rules if necessary
Seriously all these rules are bugging me and I took risk to waste my time withs some other bounties having similar rules.. I just didn't want to join the project's website, download a wallet from a new project that I don't know anything about, and also didn't want to visit and submit anything on a website. This is the main reason I never join this kind of bounties.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Musk cares for $TSLA, not Bitcoin on: June 07, 2021, 06:12:29 PM

I would argue he also cares about showing his muscles everywhere in the world in every important sector. Cryptocurrencies has obviously become one of them so why not show the world that he can push Dogecoin through the roof and laugh authorities like the SEC straight in the face?

Musk is crazy, he is a genius and a maniac and what not, but you can't deny that this guy delivers on his promises and way beyond. Or maybe not on his promises, but he exceeds almost every human being on planet earth in terms of execution. That guy is out of this world in that regard. Building an internet bookstore and growing from there is one thing and what Bezos did is huge, but how the heck would you start to build a Tesla? I would be overwhelmed just with the thought process and I would give up for sure. Hats off to what he has achieved in his life already. It isn't just a piece of paper with a drawing by an engineer, like a prototype. His cars are *** driving. And his rockets are *** flying into space, come back and land. Wink

I don't know why he is called a genius so often. I have my reservations. He delivers part of his promises, those feasible. The unrealistic ones are there for the hype.
More time is needed to judge. Too many snowflakes appeared out of nowhere and disappeared like that.

Personally, I think the cons of him coming forward will always outweigh the pros but I'm curious what some of y'all think. What would your single biggest pro or con be for him coming/not coming forward be?

Are you so sure it's a him? I don't think Satoshi ever stated gender.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Musk cares for $TSLA, not Bitcoin on: June 05, 2021, 06:38:59 AM
You mean the Elon Musk tweets didn't affect the price of Bitcoin at all but were totally irrelevant?
We can't really 100% sure if with his tweets, he can manipulate the Bitcoin market. But as many people take too seriously with his tweets and some article also exaggerating react his tweets, many people panic selling because of that's FUDs. Assuming Elon Musk tweet is affecting the Bitcoin price, this won't last long until many newcomer already understand Bitcoin is and not only to earn instant profit.

There's no correlation between TESLA stock and Bitcoin price, it's just your conspiracy.

It is not people. There are thousands of bots connected to tweets of public figures and react in less than a second buying/selling. When people read the tweets and react it is already too late.
Also, the tweets are part of Musk's plan to please his current investors and those that sold to rebuy, trying to make an image of Tesla having environmental concerns. Same goes for Square. It is all part of the agenda, do anything as long as it doesn't hurt our stock price.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Musk cares for $TSLA, not Bitcoin on: June 05, 2021, 05:58:41 AM
The Tesla price drop has nothing to do with the Bitcoin price drop.Tesla stocks were and still are overpriced.
Musk doesn't care about Bitcoin,just like 80% of all the investors,who bought Bitcoin.They care only about prices and profit margins.Everything is about "buy low,sell high".
Tesla would never cost hundreds of billions of dollars,if the government wasn't supporting that company with regulatory credits.

You mean the Elon Musk tweets didn't affect the price of Bitcoin at all but were totally irrelevant?
