Is it really that hard to believe knowing how much attention crappy and useless cryptocurrency projects are getting? Like 99.9% of projects in this industry shouldn't even exist, yet newbies "invest" in them in the hopes of getting rich quick.
That is just it, I am not happy when I heard a friend that told me about how he was scammed because he invested in a project, my brother and I also were together not long ago after many years of not being together for some short time, he told me about how many projects he invested and fot scammed, I wish he had told me than him getting scammed more than ones, he did not even want to believe what I am saying about bitcoin and crypto now because of his past losses. Another are some people that will start trading without any knowledge than to use it to gamble and lose greatly from the start. Humans like to try to get rich quick, which are ways to lose fast.
It is usual and normal if a newcomer is scammed in the cryptocurrency industry. Scamming is rapid and rampart in the society so the victim of scam should not be blamed but if the person is scammed more than once with the same method and for the same reason the person is supposed to be blamed

That is why scammers always devise new strategies to rip people their money and we should therefore always be updated to know the strategies rather than leaving yourself vulnerable.

Suppose I am doing business through an online Facebook page and website and want to accept Bitcoin. But now if I look at cryptocurrencies it comes with high volatility, and I have doubts whether accepting Bitcoin will be profitable for my business.
I really want to know your opinion on this and what are the initial steps I should take if I adopt cryptocurrency for my business? Because I see many people on the forum are taking steps to accept Bitcoin for businesses and that's why these questions araised in my mind.

Bitcoin payment is like any other form of payment, just like paying with fiat. So payment gateway or method has nothing to do with the profitability of your business. If you want to profit in your business try and venture into a business that us profitable.
If you want to accept Bitcoin, conduct a survey among your customer base and ask them if they would want to be paying with bitcoin. Their replies will enable you make a better decision.

When it comes to the transfer window, The Pride of London are highly busy, especially under the new manager, Todd Boehly. Enzo Fernandez is eager to join the team after becoming the most expensive midfielder in football and breaking the record in the English premier league. The Argentine has plenty of time to improve and establish a strong rapport with his new colleagues. Enzo Fernandez will undoubtedly play a significant role in the Blues' season-long plan now that he has been given the jersey number 5.

The blues are always busy in the transfer market and they spend much. The last big transfer spending was under Lampard but it didn't yield good results.  Now Todd and Potter has started which I know will also not yield good results this year but it will likely yield next season.
Chelsea should be in the quest to change their first eleven and give the squad a nice depth for a more favorable competition.

The message in the image from Huobi exchange is encouraging new Bitcoin adopters to not be discouraged by negative opinions and "FUD" (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) surrounding the cryptocurrency. It highlights that technology is advancing and Bitcoin is a reliable digital currency that has faced challenges before but has always persevered. The message also mentions that the only thing the "haters" can do now is create central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and spread FUD.

Every new innovation or technology always face difficulty breaking through and the major difficulty they face is posed by their older competitors that the new innovation wants to obsolete. But one remarkable thing is that if the new technology has the ability to extinct the old, no matter how false information is flagged against the new technology, the new technology must prevail only if it has the ability to solve a big old unsolved problem.

Next thing na em some men come dey harass us ooo. If no be say one person wey we follow make that waka him papa join the force, we for pay for wetting we no know.

No matter how careful you dey, those men go find you werin no good but e better say make you still dey careful. My suggestions to avoid these men harassment na as follows;
1. Avoid some late night movements (especially in group)
2. Limit the way you move around
3. No too show up for exorbitant lifestyle
4. If possible get physical business or job wey you go fit tell them say you dey do.
5. No associate too much with street people if you no follow
6. Importantly make you first dey innocent.

The arrival means nothing but rather it's a good addition to Arsenal even if Jorginho has some. Weakness when it comes to age and strength to run around the midfied like partey does.
With the both of them around, they will both help each other as they aim for the premier league for the first time after eighteen good year's.
They should be in the Champions League next season and Europa league this season, so it means to enough games for him to play.
This is one of the best signings so far in this window. He is still young, has a wealth of experience in the League, European, and Continental Cups, and is extremely excellent with the ball and has a tremendous passing range. While every player has a weakness, Mikel will undoubtedly work on this one. I give it a 6 out of 10, not the greatest Arsenal could have done but still a respectable player. With Jorginho at least Arsenal can say they have cover for partey who is lot better than what they have. I am proud of the bench now, it looks a whole lot better.
Did you say Jorginho is still young? Any footballer who is above 30yrs shouldn't be called young anymore. I used to respect Jorginho as one of the world class midfielders but with the collapse of Chelsea midfield when Jorginho and Covasic were there made me begin to think twice.
Anyways, I have no doubt that Jorginho will do well in Arsenal because there is a difference between playing in a good team and playing in a bad team.

I'm feeling very positive about Manchester United's win against Crystal Palace on this match week. I also remember their previous matchup in which Manchester United could have even lost the match. They could have won there if they had their usual scoring performance. I really liked their big effort against Arsenal anyway later on. This seemed promising for this match as well. In Old Trafford we watch a far different Manchester United. They are one of the strongest home teams currently as you know - 7W 1D 1L.

Here in this stadium I don't expect Crystal Palace to be much effective. Manchester United should have the control in their hands and finish them off.
I also agree. Manchester United have the ability to beat Manchester City. Since Manchester United lost their previous match, they will want to give their best to beat City in this match.

In the last meeting between these two clubs, Crsytal Palace escaped being beaten by Manchester United. This time around they may not escape it. Even though Crystal Palace will put up a good fight as usual. But Manchester United will be more resilient and formidable in the midfield against Palace.
But in England nothing is too sure, however the Erik Ten Hag guys are on a good form.
8  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Re: Breaking news on Naira note on: January 29, 2023, 07:23:42 PM

Yes but not for people who understand the working of the system. It is a good news because the date has been extended but what about the new note. The issue in the country is not the extension of of depositing deadline date but the circulation of the new Naira banknotes. The deadline can still be the on Tuesday if the new Naira banknotes is fully in circulation, people will meet up to deposit their old note and take the new note. But if the extension is till September and the new note is not available, the same things (cry, suffering and others) will still happen so there is no need for Happiness. If the new note is not available before the next deadline, the cry will be worst than this. That is, you will still request for another extension again.

The problem will have in this switch to new currency saga is the availability of the new notes in circulation. With the rumors I heard some from reliable sources mostly bankers this new notes have actually been held in bank commercial banks after it has been disbursed my the Apex bank. So you see it is not entirely their fault. When this commercial were asked some claimed that the old notes werenít returned or rather when they return it this people would like to go home again with bunch of the new notes. The commercial banks even claimed that this pressure on them to return it this week has produced positive reports. What I take is if this old notes arenít return and the new notes are given out excessively it defeats the sole purpose of this whole redesign process which is to have more than 70% of the paper money in banks. The only thing the CBN can do to reduce this pressure is to mount pressure on this banks to give out more new notes for this next 10 days and we will know how it goes

All these permutations na stories. This country is dead and buried in corruption. Incase you don't know the story behind the old and new naira circulation. Listen!
Commercial banks have used the new Naira notes given to them to give politicians who came with old money and the politicians are no hoarding it for election and that is why the new notes are scarce on arrival.

Mr. A can be in Legendary rank with Mr. B. But Mr. Having upto 5,000 merits while Mr. B has 1023 merits will likely show that Mr A contributes meaningfully than Mr. B. If this continue to work, what then is the need of adding another rank?
With this logic, there might be no need for any ranks at all. A user with 500 merits is assumed to contribute better than one with 10 (not always),

Not always. I believe the logic is reasonable to this context because the only major contributor to rank up is merit. The activity is constant. If we both remain active in the forum for 14days we get same number of activities but we cannot same amount of merits.
So after legendary rank where activities and merits no longer contribute to rank up as there is no rank up, the value of merits is expressively seen and felt as the higher number of merits apart from merit airdropped is seen as the better contributor.

The ranking system has lasted for so long and yet is is not boring. Do you really know why it is not boring?
It is because of the introduction of the merit system. The merit system makes the ranking still remain valid.
Mr. A can be in Legendary rank with Mr. B. But Mr. Having upto 5,000 merits while Mr. B has 1023 merits will likely show that Mr A contributes meaningfully than Mr. B. If this continue to work, what then is the need of adding another rank?

i have been ban because of plagiarism and spamming and since that i have being restricted not to participate for posting in bitcointalk and that make me Lose weight

After reading this part of your ban appeal, I have the feelings that you don't know the reason why you were banned. Is it possible that you are banned for plagiarism and spamming the same time?
Did the admin or moderator tell you that you were banned because of plagiarism and spamming?
Could it be that you feel you have plagiarised unknowingly?

I have read where people say about auto ban and it looks as if only a moderator will know the type of ban.
But if you were banned because of spamming, I think you have a good chance of getting your account back because I have checked your history and it doesn't look like you were spamming recently.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who else have my kind of mindset for Bitcoin 2023 on: January 28, 2023, 07:46:28 PM

2023 is the year I found my confidence in bitcoin as I have not check the price of Bitcoin for the past 80 hours, since I am now fully into long term holding giving myself, a timeframe of 2-3 years before looking back on the price but what I will do is to accumulate more Bitcoin as chances present itself.

Who else have my kind of mindset let discussed welcome to the future Bitcoin holders!

I don't think I can do without checking the price of bitcoin. I don't know if it's an addiction or it is normal. Even when I am investing for a long term purpose I can't just live complete a day without checking bitcoin price.
Even if it is not for my investment, but for the general well being of the market I always care about the Bitcoin price and I check it as often as I have my mobile phone that is internet enabled.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin always shames social media experts. on: January 28, 2023, 07:39:42 PM
Bitcoin is proving to be highly unpredictable. So many experts do not get it right. Only a few of them gets to approximate in prediction. The nature of the crypto market has changed to large magnitude. When the industry is new, people could easily predict. But today, many factors are affecting such accurate prediction which includes trade volume, market cap, pump and dump, fud, whales etc.
So, if it will be difficult for bitcoin experts to get it right is it common social influencers that will get it right always?
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Approximately 384 Days until the next Bitcoin halving on: January 27, 2023, 04:43:56 PM
Since the last cycle was cut short abruptly and compared to previous cycles that we had was a tiny rise, I no longer thing the 4-year cycle is a solid trend at this point even though we may start seeing another cycle shape up in the future.
For now there are a lot of other events in the world that are affecting the global economy hence affecting bitcoin price which in my opinion are more important to watch than the halving.

What you said could happen after this halving we are expecting. But for now the wave is still pushing and this year halving has been preached more than other ones. That is why the pumping will not fail. The hype is high and everyone is expecting it.

16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Reason why I will never help anyone to invest in crypto on: January 27, 2023, 03:52:08 PM
That's why I never give my relatives or friends any investment advice. Many people say we should share bitcoin with those around us, that's how we make bitcoin more popular as well as help others have a good life like us know about bitcoin. But as an investment, there is always a risk, just because we make a profit doesn't mean that others will also make a profit. Investing is a battle in which there will be winners and losers, even we ourselves are not sure that we are the winner, so recommending to others is like bringing disaster to the body.

This is a very thoughtful reply to the post. Investment in cryptocurrency is like a battle, many lose and many wins. Many atimes we lose while thinking that we win. So there is no guarantee and it is not something that we will introduce people and give then the confidence of winning.

To tell you how difficult it is here. Here is the only place someone will give you advice finish and tell you that he didn't give you advice, that you should do your own research. It is risky here

The truth is that Graham Potter also contribute to the problem of Chelsea,  a good coach should be able to manage the kind of player Chelsea has, atleast some level of good performance is supposed to be seen in the players. I think the strategies he uses as a coach is not working for the team. Chelsea already have players but lack a quality coach that can bring out best from the players .

I would agree with you on this. The coach also has a part to play(probably more)in the level of performance his team displays on the field of play.

Chelsea already has some of the finest players in the world and needs someone who is able and capable to see and bring out the potentials buried deep inside each player. Along with that, formulation of new strategies using the potentials of his players is also key and something the coach ought to consider.

No coach will be able to do great things when his defence and midfield is in shambles. You may think that Chelsea is signing players that they are supposed to be performing well. Ask yourself how many steady defenders are there apart from Silva. Also ask yourself how many great defensive midfielder has Chelsea since Kante is injures. If you will be fair, Potter has never gotten the best lines of defence and midfield to perform.

No, I think Messi can still return to Barcelona to play for his childhood club before retiring there as the club legend.
Players returning to their so called childhood clubs is a bad idea because all those beautiful memories he left could be erased and we saw what happened with Cristiano. Maybe that Saudi Arabia deal is in the pipeline after all because his playing days are almost over and what better way of ending it by getting a fat pay check.

Well as far as i know, Messi did not really had to leave Barcelona at all. It was just the case, that Barcelona could not afford to pay Messi his extremely high salary. They have paid him around 550 MÄ for a 5 year contract, that are 110 MÄ per year, which is probably 5 times more than other world class players are earning. That was the reason why Barcelona has such extremely high debts now and is still in danger of going bankrupt.
Messi could have stayed back then but of course for a salary that would have only been a fraction of the old one. So it was not like he was forced to leave or something. He just wanted to continue to earn ridiculously high amounts of money and he could do that PSG.

I have already said it, the major concern of players is to continue to earn highly ridiculous amount of money. I first asked this question that if Messi loved Barcelona that much, why not take some pay cut.
The same thing happened to Ronaldo. When the bid from Saudi came, I told people that Ronaldo will go for the money but they said that Ronaldo will like to play only in Europe and possibly in the Champions league. But today we have seen where Ronaldo is.

Tomorrow Arsenal will play against Manchester City in the FA Cup match which of course this will be very interesting, because if Arsenal manage to beat Manchester City in this match then that is an extraordinary achievement. Because if Arsenal win this match then Arsenal have managed to beat two Manchesters in a row, and maybe that will be a historical record as well.
I hope that a winning result for Arsenal can happen in this match, because of course it will be the perfect result for Arsenal in this season and in this moment.

Arsenal may not be able to win Manchester City because Guardiola knows too well that he is loosing the Premier League title to Arsenal. I expect him to feature stronger legs in order to eliminate Arsenal from FA Cup.
If they lose out to Arsenal in Fa Cup, they may also lose out to Arsenal in the main league which will be very abnormal.
