Newbie doesn't mean they were created today. You can look at post history and joined date.

A lot of BK players don't have forum accounts or were never active much here.

Yeah right. You're deleting posts of active players who are not happy with your scam and you're posting with your sockpuppet accounts, then making up a story to explain why only newbies are posting here. So childish.

There are quite a few that have a hope though. These are the ones that have an actual developing team and the people involved are skilled and enjoy their involvement, without only looking for short term gains.
Right now there are established coins that are working and don't give up and people that want to succeed and not only get rich quick after a short pump.

That might be the only somewhat legit reason to hold such coins but I would consider that more like a form of moral support for developers than a gainful investment. Technological innovation is not a guarantee of profit. It needs a lot of other things to be successful including marketing and lots of good old-fashioned luck.
Not everyone is interested in crypto and blockchain for making a profit, many investors are here for tehcolgoy+blockahin facilities. The developing projects have a good chance to change the look of the crypto ecosystem but only strong teams have a persistent vision. As an advantage of adoption, the more people will be able to change their lives, the unbanked people have the chance to use financial projects, for example.

I should have said "success" instead of "profit". So you're right, success doesn't have to be just profit. I would still say that in order to achieve success you need more than the technology. There have been many technologically-superior products that never caught on or lost out to inferior ones. But I can understand if someone is holding a coin as a form of support for the team or the technology or the idea. I'm more concerned about those who are waiting for "altcoin season" and expecting profit.

Martingale doesn't work ever anywhere. I'm not sure if you were joking about it. To win with martingale you would need unlimited funds (obviously impossible) and no max bet limit (again obviously impossible).

The best way to make a profit in gambling is to not gamble. It's entertainment - like alcohol and nearly-naked ladies, and you probably don't expect a profit in those activities.

if you have principles, you will not give the decisions that you have taken in the past. however, I believe prices will recover.

in fact these salts and downs of the market are very stressful and the dominance of bitcoin grows more and more, the only thing that stops me from selling everything and buying only bitcoins is a thing of principle i don't want to sell any altcoins at a loss, under the purchase price

There are some principles worth paying for, such as justice or freedom, but altcoins...? For example I like apples but I don't call that a principle, I just like apples and I spend money to buy them. I understand some people can like altcoins. That's weird but ok.

Bitcoin is everyone's choice when the price goes down, altcoin is a good investment choice because there are many projects that have good products and transaction speeds that are better than Bitcoin, current market conditions are indeed on the decline, ethereum and LTC are good altcoins, prices right now it is going down but when you see LTC and ethereum prices going up like 2017, there sometimes you will feel lost because you have sold it   Shocked

I could always buy the coins back at a much lower price than I sold them for and it would be true for almost anyone who sold over the last couple of years.

as far i know, there are 2 sentiment in alt. those are bearish and bullish. bullish in altcoin is called altseason
this is bearish market to altcoin. so most of alt including top 10 altcoin would be dump. looks like no hope to rise
it makes many people scared including you and considering to sell all your alt, it is not bad decision. as long as you sell higher than you buy Tongue

No, you should sell it because you can sell it higher now than later. It doesn't matter what the price was when you bought it. Cut your losses. If you don't have a time machine to go back you can't change the price you bought. But you are still in control of when to sell it.

No offense but isn't it the same that you have done that you were suggesting not to do? Have you done a search to find that tells the same you wanted to tell? This board is filled with such conversation and if I was in my laptop then I could bring you lots of example posts.

There have been many discussions about this but maybe not that much about what the OP is saying (commitment). The problem... commitment is more like a goal than a solution. I can agree that it would be good to have people to be more committed to the forum but how do we achieve that? If the OP could post some ideas it can be a good topic. Just posting that we need people to be more committed is not very helpful.

(minor edit for grammar issues)

Did you mix things up a bit? A cypherpunk is a person with good understanding of cryptography who applies it in practice to achieve privacy and independence, they may or may not be interested in cryptourrency. "Cryptocurrency enthusiast" doesn't require one to have any deep understanding of cryptography.

No, I didn't. I think they shouldn't be called "cryptocurrency enthusiasts" if they don't understand cryptography or don't use it "to achieve privacy and independence". They can be called bitcoiners or bag holders or bounty hunters, but true enthusiasts should spend at least a few hours educating themselves but most importantly - practice what they preach.

There's nothing wrong with "cypherpunk", a word that has been around for many years.

Yes, it means more than just "bitcoiner" or "shitcoiner" but you really need to understand multiple aspects of cryptography to earn the right to be called a cryptocurrency enthusiast.

Actually, I didn't mention any data. I am aware that the results of the game are fair in a completely random and provably fair.
But my observation was a different claim that users were more likely to be busted when they do a high amount of betting.
There are different statements.

If it's random it can't be busting some users more often than others. Or are you playing captain obvious by saying that low probability bets are less likely to win?

I have tried almost all major block explorers here. But none of them offer what you are saying in this thread.

How can you say that after it's been posted that two major explorers actually show the price? Even blockchain.com itself shows it somewhere as alani123 pointed out. Looks like you didn't read the thread and didn't try anything.
92  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How to get real time BTC price on: November 21, 2019, 03:56:30 PM
You can toggle between USD and BTC values.
I can see the current price but I can't see the price when the amount was transacted. In blockchain explorer, I used to see the current price and the price at the time of the transaction. I can't see it anymore in the new version.

Did you check the link I posted? Go to that site and put your tx id in. Does it show the USD/BTC toggle like this:



Example: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/transaction/cdaf858ac42fd7b9c116c5a165f25ae7ae93807eaab4043845c36ce0b1523008
93  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How to get real time BTC price on: November 21, 2019, 03:43:39 PM
It's amazing that someone still uses that explorer. Does it support segwit yet?

Try blockchair.com - it has point-in-time USD prices. Example of an old block:

https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/block/300000

You can toggle between USD and BTC values.
94  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Just a little something about secure passwords. (Wallets & Online services) on: November 21, 2019, 03:31:40 PM
Not much to discuss, it was obvious for a long time. I used to work as a sys admin (glorified user support really) and was fighting middle management all the time because they wanted users to have complex passwords and change them every 90 days so of course everyone's password was on a post-it. Then they made a policy "no post-its on monitors" so post-its ended up in drawers, on flower pots, and so on.
95  Economy / Gambling / Re: .4 BTC lost on satoshi dice on: November 21, 2019, 03:17:46 PM
Is there any proof that this was a winning bet since it was onchain? I don't remember how the bets were handled back in those days. It was probably based off the hashed block. There should be some way to check whether it was a win or not.

It was based on a daily secret value hashed with the TX ID. It was not based on a block because it was instant zero confirmation game. But the daily secrets are no longer available on the website so it's impossible to verify the bets. Maybe someone archived the secrets but then you would have to trust the archive. I don't think the effort would be worth it tho. OP isn't really interested in this, just posted the thread and disappeared can't even get the amount right.
96  Economy / Investor-based games / Re: JustEarnIt.monster on: November 21, 2019, 01:41:42 PM
No it didn't because they received $20K+ from monitors: https://hyiplogs.com/project/justearnit.monster/

My favorite scammer is back shilling a dead scam Cheesy

All those "monitoring" sites are so truthful and honest and would never lie about the scams their promoting. Is that what you're trying to say?

"Dice bots" won't make money for you. They can help to lose your money quicker it that's what you want.

You're posting this in multiple places. Are you trying to promote this youtube video?
98  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Be careful with security! I learned my lesson. on: November 21, 2019, 01:26:38 PM
I'm sorry this happened to you.

I had all the private keys, passwords, etc saved in my email draft & I had 2 fa SMS verification didn't know that someone can break it easily.

Sounds like it was webmail something like gmail so it doesn't have to be a break in to your account to steal your information. It can be many other things like a cross site scripting attack from another tab or a rogue browser extension or malware on your computer.

99  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Move bitcoins anonymous to another wallet on: November 20, 2019, 10:41:31 PM
What about CoinJoin? I advice you to try it. Easy method, use Wasabi wallet, you can send a CoinJoin transaction and you will receive new coins from an unknown address. CoinJoin is a wallet added feature to mix inputs from different senders and split into the output addresses. In simple words , You will receive btc from a different input from which it has originally sent.
You can always use Mixers as you can also use another anonymous blockchain like Grin or Monero.

CoinJoin doesn't send you coins from an unknown address, not exactly. It sends coins from a large set of inputs to a large set of outputs. The input set you're getting coins from includes your own inputs (keep in mind that it's trustless so your coins are sent and received in one TX and never leave your custody), it just makes it harder to prove which outputs are yours, depending on how many joins are there in the TX and what the amounts are. Wasabi tries to make the inputs and outputs identical in size so that also adds a bit of privacy but you can't mix amounts lower than ~0.1 BTC. Usually you need multiple rounds of CoinJoin to get a reasonable level of mixing. You also have to be extremely careful with what you do with change which is often an issue with Wasabi due to the 0.1 BTC minimum. Accidentaly merging change with clean coins can undo the mixing.

This is different from custodial mixing services that send you coins that are completely separete from your inputs and can usually handle odd amounts except chipmixer with its premade chips.

After making a post I see that I have earn 180 Bitz points. But I don't know whether it has any costs.  Cry

I didn't read it carefully. It looked confused to me because at the contest the most who collected Bitz would get grand prizes so I assumed that was a point. Based on the Members Shop 0.0005 BTC worth 50,000 Bitz so the rate is 1 Satoshi/Bitz

180 satoshis per post that's very poor. If the forum gets any posts it's going to be bot farms. A real person won't waste their time for 1.5 cent per post. People who are really interested in the site and don't care about payment will be burried under bot posts.
