when it comes to forum, no copy and paste is allowed even if you provide the link.

Actually, copy-paste is allowed on this forum.  You can even use the Insert Quote button when referencing something.  Though, posts lacking meaningful content are not allowed.  If you just copy a chunk without your own spin, thoughts or views, thats pretty low value and insubstantial, and mods will probably delete it.

These wallets are decentralized and open source,

How can a wallet be decentralized?  especially light wallets like Electrum and BlueWallet? These wallets use centralized servers to connect to Bitcoin nodes.

Maybe you meant non-custodial wallets?

People come and go, thats just life.  When stuff gets busy, interests change or maybe the place just gets boring.  Cant blame folks for moving on, you know? 

But some of these signature campaigns if not watched close, could really mess things up around here.  Now theres already a few happening which are alright enough.  Though seems like more low-rent ones keep popping up too, offering rewards for posts that dont say much or matter.  And if that becomes the norm, then for sure the conversations will suck and

Id say the mood around here depends just as much on the managers running these campaigns as it does on the moderators.  Both of them shape what kind of place we have.

Work from home is actually good for the company too, they no need skyscraper offices, no need to spend huge money in electricity bills and work at everyone's convenience.

There are concerns that productivity is reduced when workers work from home. Working from the office makes supervision, teamwork, and direction easy. Anyway, working remotely could be cheaper.

You both make good points! Working remotely certainly presents cost savings for companies in terms of reduced office overheads.  It can also promote flexibility and work-life balance for employees and  however, online collaboration has its difficulties, and some staffers may find it tougher to remain productive without the structure of a traditional workplace.  Ultimately, the success of remote work depends on various factors - the specific organization, the roles involved, employee personalities.  While not a universal solution, it can mutually benefit many companies and staff when conditions align.  For example, I like to work from home, and I do not believe that I will ever go back to the old, traditional model. If for some reason this is no longer possible in my current employment, I will look for a new company that allows me to do this, or I will simply go the freelance route.

Investing in Bitcoin is tricky business.  On one hand, having patience and holding those coins long-term has paid off for many people.  but some legendary Bitcoin ballers also made bank by strategically buying and selling at the right times. So which is the best approach?

The truth is, Bitcoin investing takes both discipline and occasional calculated risks.  You cant just blindly hodl and expect to strike it rich.  Nor can you day trade Bitcoins like stocks and not get rekt.  You gotta have the guts to buy when there is blood in the streets, even if that means going against the herd.  But you also cant freak out and panic sell when the price crashes. 

Having patience is key no doubt.  But even masters like Michael Saylor dont just sit on their hands.  When the time is right, they pounce to increase their stacks.  That takes balls of steel and acting while others are paralyzed with fear.

So in the end, successful Bitcoin investing requires inner confidence and zen, grasshopper.  But also the wisdom to move decisively when opportunity knocks.  Just buying and passively waiting wont cut it.  The patient lion waits for the right moment before going in for the kill.  Be the lion!

What government exactly? Different governments got different takes on Bitcoin.

Lets not act as if the government from different parts of the world hasn't had their fair share of beef with Bitcoin and the crackdown of either Bitcoin trading/mining then the crypto industry in general, an attack on the industry could be said to be an attack on Bitcoin as they're only going through the sidelines since they can't fully achieve their desires plans on killing Bitcoin.

There are some countries that using Bitcoin is illegal and they have their punishment for defaulters while some other countries have lifted the ban still there was a time when they didn't permit the association with Bitcoin in some way (trading or mining). My point is irrespective of how some government are trying to fight the adoption of Bitcoin, a time will come when they would have no choice but to accept it as some other countries are doing currently. Nigeria is one example and the country is not only fighting the trading of Bitcoin but crypto in general with the restrictions place on crypto trading exchanges (delisting local currency from their platforms). I know they aren't technically fighting Bitcoin but they're pushing the awareness and adoption of Bitcoin backwards with their restrictions.

Well, there was definitely been some governments giving Bitcoin the side-eye or outright getting hostile and  China with those tight restrictions comes to mind.  Cant deny that.  But we gotta look at the full picture here.  For every one government getting their heckles up over crypto, there is another one rolling out the red carpet.  Or like in the EU and the U.S. They seem more interested in slapping some regulations on rather than outright bans. 

Its a lot like how the early internet faced pushback too before becoming just another part of everyday life.  There is still some hurdles for Bitcoin, but the momentum is real. So Im not sweating it too much.  Governments can only resist new tech kicking down their door for so long.  World is changing, Bitcoin and crypto are gonna be part of that change whether the powers that be like it or not and  it is what it is.

Nonsense is when you score my knowledge without knowing what I actually know. Talking simple does not mean that someone is dumb.

You missed the point.

How about I create a topic with the title "pbies is a fucking idiot!"  Just because I like to use those words, in that particular order, does not mean Im trying to insult you. Thats basically your argument, right?
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: End of Bitcoin on: May 22, 2024, 08:06:56 PM
I have always been fascinated by how some folks can make big claims without knowing squat about the subject.  OP, you bandy around terms like bsgs and kangaroo like they are some kind of magic that can crack any encryption just like that.  Do you even know what these methods represent and what they are capable of doing?

If you are really interested in learning about this kind of stuff, I would suggest asking questions about things you dont understand before making such outlandish claims.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Will always Survive on: May 22, 2024, 07:42:36 PM
The government has tried to bring down Bitcoin but hasn't succeeded and soon they'll have no choice but to accept defeat that they can't bring down Bitcoin.

What government exactly? Different governments got different takes on Bitcoin.  But most governments just wanna get they piece of the pie - track payments, tax gains, etc.  That could make Bitcoin more mainstream even if it makes the Wild West vibe fade a bit.

So yeah, some regulation seems likely but outlawing crypto probably is not happening... Except in a few countries.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What's your experience using web3 wallets? on: May 19, 2024, 09:06:32 PM
I haven't really explored the world of web3 wallets

This topic has nothing to do with the Bitcoin discussion because there are no so-called "web3 wallets" in the Bitcoin ecosystem. You should move this thread to ALtcoins section.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Shops now accept BTC on: May 19, 2024, 08:55:02 PM
@Emmybit001, if you could share a bit more details on the specific stores taking bitcoin.  It would be helpful to know the country or region they are located in.  As some folks already pointed out, there are a good number of major retailers that accept bitcoin now.  Microsoft and are two bigger name companies that have allowed customers to pay with bitcoin for some time and  there are also services that let you spend bitcoin at retailers that dont directly take it.  But if you have names of some smaller or local brick and mortar shops embracing bitcoin, that would be interesting to hear.  Even just the general area so we can get a sense of where adoption seems to be happening.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Is this my secret phrase or seed. on: May 19, 2024, 08:41:44 PM
         I've just come across an old wallet (2017) of mine. Could somebody tell me if this is my secret phrase or seed, Thanks in advance  Smiley

I dont quite understand what you are asking.  It sounds like you found some file on your computer and you think it might have your bitcoin wallets seed phrase in it? Where did this file come from anyway? Maybe try opening it up in Notepad or something and take a look inside.  Just from a quick google search it looks to me like that file is part of Windows itself, so I kinda doubt it has anything to do with bitcoin wallets or crypto.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: What type of a trader/investor is this? on: May 19, 2024, 08:20:54 PM
I dont really see anything too special here.  This dude put the last bit of money he had into some new memecoin.  Honestly a pretty risky move if you ask me.  Most of those things crash and burn right out the gate.  He definitely lucked out that this one actually took off.  but man, why didnt he sell some when he was up 10x? Or even 20x? To me, if you are literally investing your last couple grand, gotta take some profits.  But he got greedy I guess.  Wanted to squeeze every last bit out.  Cant be too surprised it came crashing down.  You win some you lose some when you play with fire.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Wich altcoin has that similar to btc ? on: May 19, 2024, 07:56:53 PM
I do not think there are any PoS cryptocurrencies quite like Bitcoin when it comes to havings and a limited supply.  That whole thing is tied into Bitcoin's proof-of-work mining structure.   

However, some PoS coins do cap the maximum number you can mine.  A few even try to reduce inflation in their own way, just not with the same halving reward thing as Bitcoin.  They might use different systems to increase scarcity over time.  But as far as mimicking Bitcoin's specific economic model, I cant think of any PoS altcoins doing that so far
15  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🏆 - No-KYC Slots and Sports Betting with Bitcoin [20 FREE SPINS] 🏆 on: May 18, 2024, 09:51:16 PM
So do withdrawals from the platform work or not? Has anyone tried depositing funds there yet? Transaction fees are not that high at the moment.  But you should keep in mind that according to their terms of use, the minimum withdrawal amount is 0.00020000 BTC.
16  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [SCAM] on: May 18, 2024, 09:43:59 PM
I agree that this is suspicious for a new casino, especially an unknown and unlicensed one. But it is not so strange that they require first deposits to prevent abuse of free spins.

Has anyone tried depositing funds there yet? Transaction fees are not that high at the moment.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How Casinos Manage Minimum Withdrawal Limits and Fees on: May 18, 2024, 09:28:57 PM
Several casinos have their minimum withdrawal fees that they have set up and which all their clients must adhere to.  Personally I know that the minimum withdrawal fee by casinos is mostly to offset or process transaction fee that could happen during withdrawal. But what I don't understand is how this works. If a casino says their minimum withdrawal fee is $10 and I have won $100 which I want to withdraw. I am able to withdraw the $100. so where did the money the casino use in processing the transaction fee come from?

Im not sure I understand your question. There is "Minimum withdrawal amount". This is the lowest amount a casino allows you to withdraw at once. In your example, it is $10. ANd there is "Transaction fee". This is a cost some payment processors charge for withdrawing your money from the platform.  In most casinos I play at, the transaction fee will be deducted from my total withdrawal at that time.

I dunno what to think about all this.  Some of it seems like nonsense, some of it looks scummy, some of it feels misleading... all wrapped up in a delusional fever dream.

You want folks to come to your game? Maybe concentrate on making your site enticing - threats and guilt trips wont help.  Vague promises about "unlimited possibilities" dont cut it either.  What exactly are these benefits here? Promoting gambling as a money-making tool is a big red flag in my book.  Is this a pyramid scheme type deal?  Without the full story and proof, your words mean zilch.  That pledge to just hand out money is probably about as real as my chance to win the lottery.  Get it?

One of the main reasons Bitcoin even exists is because it was designed and built to be a digital alternative to physical cash. It would not make sense to regress and go back to create a clunky, dying physical version from a digital source.

Any suggestions and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Smiley

The Feather wallet (open source) is also compatible with Trezor hardware wallets, so you can use that combination if you dont like the Trezor Suite app.
