1  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What More Should Satoshi Do? on: Today at 03:49:45 PM
The only thing Satoshi Nakamoto should do now is what his being doing at its best which is,

To stay or remain anonymous

Satoshi's anonymity is vital to the survival of bitcoin, this is all that is asked of Satoshi.
I am not certain if the anonymity is vital for the surviving of bitcoin but being anonymous gives bitcoin more value like to easily know by people that Satoshi is just the creator but not having any control over bitcoin. But what I suspect that is very important is the bitcoin allegedly mined buy Satoshi which is estimated today to worth billions of dollars should remain like that forever, it should not be moved to another address or spent, it should remain lost like that forever. Moving such bitcoin will be a big event that many people will sell their bitcoin which can cause significant crash more than the ones that could have occurs back in the past, though, just what I think.

It is not surprising how Brazil trashed Venezuela, though Venezuela is also good and have good teams, but Brazilian team is better and obviously predicted to win the match.

One of the most interesting matches in the group stage. Given the past when Chile beat Argentina in the 2016 final, this match will have some subtext. I often root for the underdogs and this match will root for Chile, plus I don’t like the Argentina national team (no hate  Cheesy ).
Why do you not like Argentina? Though, I am not from such continent and I am not even supporting any country to win, but I like Lionel Messi which will make me support Argentina. Chile also have strong players while Argentina may perform in the way we do not expect, but I will go for Argentina if necessarily need be to go for one.

What do you think ?
That is too much, but there are many online casinos and other gambling sites you can gamble without even having kyc not to talk of taxing. I see this move as a way I will not use any gambling site in my country. Although currently no tax is implemented on gamblers in my country, only the gambling company will have to pay taxes, not gamblers. That is the reason I still like to gamble using my local fiat, but ones such move is implemented, I will prefer to use crypto gambling sites that do not demand for KYC and yet no taxing of gamblers.

If your sole purpose why you're here is just because of earning not the learning, the possible outcome is spam, copy/pasting and it could be cheating.  Just enjoy reading and make the forum your habit of reading, you will not regret it.
Yes, that is the main point, this forum primary reason of existence is about bitcoin, also altcoins and some other boards exist where people can also post of what they know about such boards. We should not spam but be part of the forum members that will be contributing experiences and how to make use of bitcoin in safe ways.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Tether FUD on: June 13, 2021, 01:46:06 PM
The concern is that Tether's reserves are not backed and they are essentially running a Ponzi like scheme. Wouldn't surprise me since it's run by dodgy Bitfinex people.

Over half of BTC trades are for USDT so if people lose faith in Tether, could lead to a severe liquidity shock for Bitcoin market
I read this like some weeks or a month ago:

Tether discloses full reserve breakdown for the first time

I am not still concerned about the reserves that was decleared, but there is nothing tether has to do with bitcoin, most bitcoiners know what you are talking about, including the whales, this will not be a shock if tether crash. But I do not see tether to crash though, but bitcoin is bitcoin, its price is not controlled by any other cryptocurrency.

Tether is not the only fiat-pegged coin, also many people will prefer the option to convert to fiat directly instead of fiat-pegged coins like tether.

Bitcoin is not a fiat-pegged currency, tether is a fiat pegged currency, bitcoin is not pegged with anything and remain bitcoin. What does tether has to do with bitcoin in comparison?

Know that fiat are depreciative which makes tether to be depreciative.

Some people may be confused for clubs Copa America, what will not make people to be confused is to include the real name of the cup in your title which is CONMEBOL, then followed by Copa America which indicates it will be for countries in America (South American continent specifically). People can confuse it with the Copa America which is played by the clubs in the South America continents.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / [Newbies]Learning will not make you spam[for newbies] on: June 13, 2021, 10:52:14 AM
Newbies may not know that learning will help them not to spam, copy and paste nor plagiarize. When I was a newbie, I loved to know about bitcoin and want to know more about it, I noticed everything I studied about bitcoin did not only helped me on this forum, it really helped me in a way I am safely keeping my bitcoin and making transactions with the lowest fee that can get transaction confirmed not long, there are many people that do not know about segwit and also how to be making use of mempool observers to track transaction fee, also about the weekends when fee can be minimal. All these are helping me to make good posts on this forum.

I have some friends that I told about this forum, that they can be able to know how beneficial bitcoin can be, that this forum will help them know about bitcoin very well that they can even with time earn some amount of bitcoin if they are contributing good posts. What do comes from them always funny to me, they do say 'can I use search engine to check what they can reply and paste it on this forum', I do tell them no, but they can use google to check for what they can reply but yet they have to also be learning about bitcoin but they can not paste another site materials here or they should include ntue link, that with that they will see this forum just like social media and enjoy what is going on here as I am seeing it now. I also tell them that what is mostly important is by following the threads on this forum that they will gain from it.

I have noticed the newbies that do not want to learn are the ones spamming, plagiarizing and copying/pasting, while they should not do something like that even without reading the forum rules, it will be good for newbies to take it easy, do not rush but be patient, you will get it and move up just like ranked members.

He said, Money is still money, but the technology for transferring it is improving.
At least you should include the link of the site you read the news, or maybe on Twitter or any social platform, try to include the link.

Bitcoin created means other cryptocurrencies are existing, many digital currencies in the past have existed but died all because they were subjected to governmental pressure or people were not even using it, but bitcoin was created, was able to overcome the  governmental pressure because it is decentralized, others also were created which are altcoins, but if not for bitcoin, I believe no successful cryptocurrency might have existed, bitcoin uniqueness makes cryptocurrencies to be existing today.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: EURO 2020: Do you ready with your bet? on: June 13, 2021, 07:45:35 AM
Yeah, I definitely want to make money from the Euro 2020 matches. So far I saved 50 Euro for gambling directly on matches and I have also 10 Euro with friends in a bet on who is going to win - my pick France. As for betting on games at the moment I am looking for risk free bets.I only want to bet on the top teams as of now like France, Italy, England, Portugal and Spain. If one of them plays a very weak team in the first round now it should be a guaranteed win.
There is no risk free bet, anything can happen in sport, football is not exceptional case as anything can also happen, you can take France to be the country that will win Euro 2020 but It may not be France that may win it, or it may be France, that is probability. Also you take a club but the club may not played and performed the way you expected. You may have high chance of wining by taking the strongest countries, but anything can happen. What I like more about Euro 2020 is during the first period when all European countries are playing, I like to take over 1.5 for like five matches. Although some games are certain, I was expecting Belgium to win Russia yesterday, it was not a surprise when Belgium had 3 golas to nothing as she trashed Russian.

Today I just checked my posting history, though I was expecting this and it happens that two of my posts in the gambling section on the same thread has been moved to off-topic, some people may have many posts under that thread.

UFC champion, Amanda Nunes challenges Kim Kardashian to a fight

New users participating in campaigns should not fall for this mistake. Also it is best to see the forum posting as fun and post more than require for weekly post counts.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Tail Hedging Bitcoin? on: June 13, 2021, 07:12:24 AM
Thought we did not yet know how severe the correction may be but we definitely know there will be significant corrections after bitcoin had attained all-time-high of over $60000. Many experts are predicting bitcoin price not to fall below $20000, but some are thinking it might. But if bitcoin price fall below $20000, definitely many people will buy bitcoin which will increase the price back above $20000, even this may not take long time period.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: What Is The Best Tether Wallet (USDT) | I Need Web Base | Low Transaction Fee on: June 12, 2021, 08:46:55 PM
Top USDT wallets?

#1 MyEtherWallet (MEW)
#2 OmniWallet
#3 Tether Wallet!/login
#4 Coinomi
#5 Exodus
#6 Ledger Nano S

This is updated list. Choose what suits you out.
Almost all the wallets you mentioned are close source, is Trezor not supporting ERC20, Omini layer and TRC20? Then why is it not included. There are some wallet you mentioned like MyEtherWallet that do not support TRC20 USDT, any wallet that does not support TRC20 should not be considered. The best wallet for tether are TRC20 token wallets which have low fees.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Copy/Paste on: June 12, 2021, 08:35:09 PM
It is not only about copy and paste, spamming generally will result to ban, these are what newbies to have in mind for not to be banned. But there are still many other rules newbies must abide to, there are many other reasons a member can be banned, but plagiarism, copy/paste and spamming are the main reasons why newbies are banned.

Unofficial list of (official) rules, guidelines, FAQ

*The question is if this is what the forum is, it will give a second chance to correct the mistake?
Why second chance?

*The forum has no options for correcting mistakes?
Permaban is the correction because those that are banned will evade the ban, that is another rule violation.
16  Economy / Micro Earnings / Re: Do y'all know a website that rewards btc or any coin by solving captchas? on: June 12, 2021, 05:28:02 PM
So what are some ways to earn income online? I will get a job but what are some things I can do at home?
Bitcoin is money, to earn money is not easy but there are few things you can do to earn money.

1. Try to be a reputed member and grow your bitcointalk's account, you will be able to join a signature campaign on this forum
2. You can try bounty campaigns too but there are many fake projects but there will some that will favor you
3. You can try and wait until price decrease, buying and hold for long like a year or more.

There are still more ways like blogging and advertising.
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Centralized and kyc platforms can pose risks in the future on: June 12, 2021, 04:13:06 PM
In ny country, I used a centralized exchange and also a wallet where you know that I don't have the private key or mnemonic phrase for the wallet but so far I don't have issues using it.
Many cryptocurrency traders go for centralized exchanges over decentralized ones. I can't blame them because I use centralized exchanges from time to time as well. But there is no reason to use a custodial wallet with your bitcoin when there are so many good non-custodial options available. No one who used any of the hacked exchanges in the past had any problems with them either until something bad happened. Keep that in mind. Things worked great until one day they didn't. It's better to keep the risks of losing coins as low as possible.   
That is just it, there are differences between privacy and security, using exchanges to buy cryptocurrencies can make someone not to have privacy, but there are still security measures that can help to secure the coin safely on noncustodial wallet, any cryptocurrency that is not active for trading on exchanges should be moved to noncustodial wallet like hardware wallet for safety of the coin, leaving it on exchanges makes it not safe unlike having the mnemonic. What is most worst thing about custodial wallet is that users do not have complete control over the coins, the control can be overridden by the wallet company, if it is not your key, it is not your coin on blockchain nakamura12.

You're referring to Bitcoin faucets right? It's literally one of the worst ways of earning BTC, that you might as well just work at McDonalds and use your wages to but BTC.

But if I can't change your mind, probably one of the biggest is
To earn bitcoin on faucet sites like, someone needs to solve captcha every hour, but there are still other sites which the OP is talking about, the sites can bring out as many as possible captcha in just an hour depending on how fast they are solved, as one is solved, another one pop up. I have used such site before, but it is also not profitable, solving 1000 captcha to earn just $10 makes me leave the site during that time, it is just an absolute waste of time and effort.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: We are all gamblers. on: June 11, 2021, 12:29:15 PM
What humans deemed as gambling is when you are risking money or properties for something very risky in order to have more money or properties while in the process you can lose your money or property that your staked for it. People that smoke or drink alcohol or womanize are not deemed gambling because they are not doing it for anything in return that is related to profit or loss in money wise, if to say they are doing it to receive more money in such a way they can lose or gain, it can be deemed as gambling too. Anything that you will do that is not risky in a way to either gain money/property or lose it is not gambling. Which means those examples above are not gambling.

Metamask wallet is an ERC20 tokens wallet, not for TRC20, I will suggest you to use TrustWallet that support both (ERC20 and TRC20) and also supporting BSC (BEP20)
