1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Which altcoins are you keeping in your bag for 2020-2021 ? on: January 27, 2020, 07:10:42 PM

And a huge stack of BLOCK (Which performed nicely the past week +100%). Blocknet is probably one of the altcoins I'm MOST bullish on, considering they've got the first mover advantage on DEX developments:
Other than that, their work on decentralized Oracles through their tech: XRouter and XBridge, is pretty impressive as well.
I'm sure we'll see this project back in the top 100 Coinmarketcap soon enough.  Grin
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Reasons to be bullish on BitcoinSV on: January 27, 2020, 07:07:25 PM
BSV is a joke, that will slowly die in the coming years. The only reason people buy it, is because they follow Craig Wright like sheeps  Roll Eyes Believing he is the "real Satoshi", which he isn't, otherwise he would off have proven it long ago.

BSV may have many transactions, but it really doesn't matter, I know of no one who uses it, and it honestly wouldn't surprise me if Craig is sending out the majority of those transactions as "micro transactions" to prove something it's not.

It's basically a trash fork, see way more value in Bitcoin Cash to be honest, and that's saying a lot.

There is only one Bitcoin, and even that is old and outdated - Moving forward I believe projects with actual use cases will dominate even more.
Blocknet and their DEX is a project I've been following for a long time. Their work on decentralized oracles, and their decentralized structure made the coin double in price the past week, which is showing bullish signs.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Blocknet moved 72% the past week. Will it continue? on: January 22, 2020, 05:25:49 PM
It seems liek it will not continue, just like every other coin in the market, when it pump high, it will also dump hard.

we have big negative today, and that's a bad sign that it will not continue to pump.

Well..... I guess you was wrong buddy...  Grin

Aaand then you wonder how high ALT's will go?  Shocked As BTC moves up, alts will follow, and far outperform BTC as seen in the past. (Market cycles, nothing new).

Blocknet moved 70%+ the past week, Dash and a few other top coins has moved by a large percentage as well. Products will real use cases, partnerships, etc will do extremely well no question about it.
I believe BLOCK did so well the past week because they're working on decentralized oracles, and has a first mover advantage on DEX developments:

Besides, it's an old project, completely decentralized unlike most new projects, which seems to be appealing to a lot of people these days.

Overall, I believe alts will make people insanely wealthy, IF you pick the right ones.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Investing in Alts instead of Bitcoin for far greater returns (or losses) on: January 21, 2020, 05:20:02 PM
Once the market moves again, alts will greatly outperform BTC, no question about it.
I hold a small portion of BLOCK, and it's been rising pretty nicely the past week (+70%), and seems to continue, a few other alts of mine has done pretty neat as well.

Overall, it's all about your timing on these alts, and what you choose to invest in. Blocknet moved a lot because they work on Decentralized Oracles, and got a first mover advantage on DEX developments, which is why investors is buying in now to get their node I guess. (5k coins required). Node owners profit from the oracle services + trading fees on the DEX + block rewards, so it's no wonder this project is on a lot of peoples radar.

Overall, your position in the top 20 alts is not a bad move either, and I'm sure you'll do good Smiley
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Blocknet moved 72% the past week. Will it continue? on: January 21, 2020, 05:12:50 PM
Good for you, if you are holding Blocknet, but for new investors please do not invest now, let the price correct and hit the bottom, with side movement. I have learnt my lessons chasing a pumping coins most time would turn you to bagholders for long period, unless you which to take your loss fast

I'm just holding a little actually. However it surprised me it moved so much the past week, and have put a few more buy orders in around 12k sat. I believe it's gonna keep going, as the dump already happened shortly after I posted this yesterday, continued by another leg up, so it's pretty clear that someone is trying to accumulate.

Never buy into a pump though, I agree... Smiley
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Blocknet moved 72% the past week. Will it continue? on: January 20, 2020, 07:01:48 PM
I've been following Blocknet for the past few months, and I'm VERY bullish on it.

Not only are they first movers on the whole DEX area, (Their DEX speaks for itself:, but they are also working on a completely decentralized oracle solution, which frankly is WAY more decentralized than LINK, due to the way it operates. Blocknet was never premined, fair launch, and to be honest, I was impressed with the info you can pull from the XRouter already when I went to their Discord channel to try it out.

If these guys starts aquiring partnerships, you can bet your ass the price is gonna fly.

I believe in the next coming years that DEX's will be adopted on a WAY bigger scale than we've seen today, since they beat KYC, privacy etc.
If the demand for nodes on the network increases, it creates an enormous pressure on the buy side from people who wants want to get in on the passive income aspect of things, as when you run a node, you profit from the DEX trading fees.

What are you guys thoughts on this?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: These projects will go big in 2020, I assume. on: January 20, 2020, 06:54:09 PM
Never heard of any of them, haha!  Grin

I believe the strongest most usable alts will be the BIG winners moving forward. Decentralization is KEY, and therefor I believe a project such as Blocknet will be a massive gainer the next few years, surpringly, it jumped by nearly 100% in value the past month, so I'm pretty bullish on it moving forward.

Their DEX speaks for itself:

On top of that they work on Decentralized Oracles (Read up on XRouter, and XBridge for more info).

As always, do your own research, there is so many promising projects, however projects focusing on decentralization will be the biggest winners I assume!
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: What Might Be The First Exchange To Close Down or Exit Scam in 2020? on: January 20, 2020, 06:51:06 PM
It's kinda ironic that we even need to discuss this, as the need for centralized exchanges is slowly fading away, day by day. The demand for DEX's is increasing, and fast. Sure I understand the sceptics out there, but let's face it. It's gonna happen slowly, but surely.

Most people are SICK and tired of KYC, exchange hacks, wallet maintenances at the worst possible times, and the list goes on and on.

Blocknet is leading the DEX development, and is a project I'm personally watching very closely.

It makes me sick, that these centralized exchanges could at any time run away with everyones money, under the disguise of being "hacked".  Roll Eyes

Decentralised exchanges would clearly solve the problems of KYC and it would protect users from the excuses of "hacks" that you highlighted. I still think time is needed before these exchanges start shutting down and wide spread use of excellent decentralised exchanges are commonplace.

Do you have any views on what might be the first exchange to close down in 2020?

Why do you even want to know that? I stopped using centralized exchanges awhile ago actually. For large trades I do OTC with escrow, (know few reputable people, which is a must), for smaller trades I use DEX's, which is frankly the future, no doubt.

People who wants to protect their privacy is obviously using DEX's, and their adoption will grow slowly, but surely. Personally speculating on accumulating a few nodes in Blocknet, since I believe they will become extremely lucrative in terms of "profit" in a few years time.

What is you guys price projections for BLOCK in like the next 3 years? Anyone willing to make an estimate? I'd love to hear you guys opinion  Grin

Impossible to predict, but a 10x from here on is EASILY achieveable, especially with it's low marketcap currently.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Blocknet Speculation Thread on: January 09, 2020, 05:49:32 AM
Blocknet...  Now that's a name I haven't heard in a looong time.  Kinda brings me back to the 2013 - 2014 era when everybody was starry eyed and optimistic about crypto.  

Well, it's still a project in active development, but true, it's one of the most decentralized projects out there, and while it may be one of the old school projects, it still has some interesting aspects that could make it blow up in price again. Their XRouter is what excites me the most, IMHO.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Here Are the Five Blockchain Projects to Keep an Eye on in 2020 on: January 09, 2020, 05:38:15 AM
Blocknet is a project that shouldn't be ignored either. Seriously. 

1) First project to launch a truly decentralized exchange (DEX).

2) Decentralized Oracles through their XRouter, which is ran by service nodes on their network. This allows for interoperability between blockchains and real world applications.

3) XCloud is a decentralized microservice cloud network powered by XRouter that allows for interaction with microservices, blockchains, APIs, and cloud tech that's hosted by Service Nodes. Developers will be able to put both blockchain and non-blockchain microservices on Blocknet’s “public cloud” decentralized network. This allows applications to run entirely decentralized, opening the door to the possibility of monetizable, fully decentralized applications.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Blocknet Speculation Thread on: January 06, 2020, 06:39:44 PM
What is everyones thoughts on Blocknet?

With this full blown bear market, it's hard to know exactly what to look for, especially if you go down past the top 50 on Coinmarketcap.

Over the last quarter of 2019, moving into 2020 we've seen TONS of exchange hacks, exit scams, and straight up fraud, due to centralization. It's really no wonder why people seem to be so interested in decentralized trading, Dapps, and other solutions with 0 middlemen in between.

Blocknet is interesting, because they are first movers on the DEX front. (Actually running a 4th gen DEX), they constantly work on it, and I think it's safe to assume that most people KNOW about this project already.

What a LOT of people don't realize (myself included, until recently) is that they are working on a decentralized oracle service, called "Xrouter", which will basically be run by service nodes. You'll be able to connect blockchain, and real world data straight through the network, and to my surprise you can already test this on their official discord server.

This project screams decentralization, everything is voted for (including development plans), fair launch, and best of all? It's not an ERC20 token, which is a huge advantage, since it means they don't rely on any other chain (Like Chainlink does with ETH).

You'll be able to profit from: Staking, Service node rewards, Trading fees, Oracle fees and the list goes on and on.

With all the recent talk about decentralization, this project is definitely one to keep an eye on. No question about it! Wink
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Now that we are in 2020 on: January 03, 2020, 04:55:15 PM
My prediction is that decentralized project will reach new ATH's based on the fact, that we've seen SO many hacks on centralized solutions (exchanges, premined projects => ERC20 tokens etc.)

The biggest problem with decentralized Dapps, DEX's etc is ease of use, and adoption, but there is no doubt that it's the future, since a LOT of people want to hide their trading history from the governments, for obvious reasons.

Blocknet is a good contender, and a project I predict will do extremely well, not only because of their DEX, but also because they do decentralized oracles. Read up on their Xrouter, Xbridge, and Xcloud, which is hardly mentioned anywhere. Smiley
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: 2020 - The Year Of Decentralization. Thoughts? on: January 03, 2020, 04:46:58 PM
I wonder why DEX’s growth if slow compare to the CEX’s maybe because most traders don’t know how to use it or maybe they don’t like anonymity compare to CEX’s kyc. Maybe they didn’t find most features of an exchanges that they are looking for in DEX’s, but its a good practice if they utilise decentralised trading if they know the benefits of using it. Decentralisation needs big push only if regulators slow their pressure.

Transaction speed, ease of use, and a few other things is the main reason DEX's isn't mainstream just yet. Blocknet is releasing a multi currency wallet, making trading way easier for anyone wishing to try it out though, so "ease of use" is hopefully soon covered.

I've seen people talk about lack of FIAT on/off ramps, but ideally you can use a stable coin to get your crypto out in $$$.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / 2020 - The Year Of Decentralization. Thoughts? on: January 02, 2020, 07:45:37 PM
What do you guys think? At the end of 2019, we've seen TONS of exchange hacks, and TONS of discussions on true decentralization, and it's advantages moving forward.

We've seen exchanges adding "staking support", making everyone not knowing the dangers of centralized exchanges victims of future exchange hacks.

Moving forward, I believe projects working to eliminate the  "middleman", making truly decentralized solutions and user friendly platforms to be  the best performers.

Blocknet is a good and promising project I've discovered lately, their DEX looks real promising:, but their Xrouter which will solve the oracle problem is interesting as well.

There are tons of projects out there, this is just an example of a project that's worth following, imho  Cheesy
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: What Would Be Your 2020 Stand Out Crypto Investment ? on: January 02, 2020, 07:33:14 PM
Happy New Year!! Wink

The majority here will most likely call out BTC as the one and only true king to invest in right now, due to it's upcoming block halving, BUT the BTC dominance chart is at an all time high, just waiting for our precious altcoins to regain dominance.
The smart move is to move BTC into ALTS, but not any alts.

Forget all these ERC20 tokens, IEO's, ICO's etc. Centralized projects, including exchanges is hacked on the daily, so it's not worth it.

I believe decentralization will be the next big thing in 2020, so the obvious move is to accumulate projects such as Blocknet, and other projects revolved around decentralized trading. Wink
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: PlusToken affecting the whole Crypto Market including Bitcoin and Ethereum on: December 19, 2019, 07:40:07 PM
It's SO easy to fool everyone involved with crypto, since the majority of people don't know jack about the underlying tech. It's the same when people talk about decentralized exchanges (DEX's).

It's kinda funny that nobody seems to understand that a REAL DEX, cannot enforce KYC. Doesn't use accounts, doesn't require your phone number, or any personal details at all.
Binance, Waves, Bisq, IDEX, and many others ISN'T truly decentralized, so it's really no wonder that scammers have it so easily in the crypto space.
The only real DEX on the market, is still Blocknet..  Wink
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Your preparation for 2020? on: December 19, 2019, 07:29:34 PM
Been in this game since 2012, and if there's ONE thing I've learned over the past few years, it's that you BEAT this market, by predicting the future. Wink

I own 10+ BTC, and a bunch of ETH for the long term - Most people will probably disagree with me, but the right move right now is to move into altcoins, which has been bleeding for the past 18 months+

Decentralization is one of the MOST discussed topics as of lately, and it's really not surprising with all these centralized exchange hacks as we've see lately.

The next big thing is Decentralized Exchanges , the thing is though, that 90% of the "DEX's" out there is FAKE, enforcing KYC, accounts, personal data, etc. A real DEX can't enforce KYC, since it's owned by nobody.

With adoption of the blockchain worldwide, governments will try to control everything, which is why a LOT of people is speculating in this (Myself included). I predict that once people move on to DEX's and we get some proper liquidity, you can make a KILLING by running a node on a DEX. .

Blocknet, is a good example of a real decentralized exchange, that if you own a service node (5000 coins required) you'll be able to profit from their DEX. More over, their Xrouter services (basically solving the Oracle problem, like Chainlink) will be another source of income on top of it all, not to mention staking rewards.

You can read more about the BLOCKDX here:

I'm constantly watching the market, and will invest in anything with a similar structure.

I've been profitting pretty well from ICO´s in 2017, but don't believe we'll see that kind of hype again, I could be wrong though, we'll see  Smiley
