1  Economy / Economics / Re: Should there be a limit to investing in your children? on: July 11, 2024, 01:50:18 AM
It's essentially to set a standard limit for investing in your children, which should also include investing in your old age. Set boundaries, have a great budget for every month, and aside from your kids, keep yourself ready for old age. I don't believe in people investing in their children to help them or look after them in old age, because life happens. As much as you are investing in them, also make availability for things you will need while on the run.

Avoid not setting goals, letting emotions drive your decisions, and not asking for professional advice. This is what some parents lack: no plans, just training their child or sending them to serve someone and get settled after years to build theirs and look after their parents. This is what they call their investment.
Most of the time, what makes parents lose all their investments is investing in the wrong place.

In forums, there's no bullying, and on other social media, there'll be times you have to be very strong to post even your content because of the amount of bullying there. I love my privacy and believe the forum gives me the room to express myself without being bullied but corrected. 

I don't think bullying works in the realm of whether you are using a forum or a social media platform because you have all the rights and the power to remove anyone from your posts and publications if you don't want to see them around or want them to see your posts, etc.

On social media platforms, you can delete and hide comments, and block users so that they can't see you or participate in any of your next posts. If they create more accounts to repeat the same things only to tease you, you can keep blocking them and that's it. It isn't a lot of work.

On forums such as this one, it's even easier, all you need to do is either make your threads self-moderated so that you can remove posts and comments from trolls and bullies or ignore them so that they don't see your threads.

Just as you have said, you either block or etc. the people bullying on social media.
Well,  in as much as you feel it's an issue, some people can't still take it.

Why do you think some people delete all their account details and run from the social platform for a while before they can come back if only you can?

The bullying on some social platforms is alarming. As a content creator, how many people are you going to block from your page? The next thing is dragging, and when you can't stand it, they will frustrate the good person in you. In forums, nobody knows you, so your neighbor can't create a new account just to use it to bully you. 
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Double your money and quite on: July 05, 2024, 11:59:14 PM
Hi everyone,

The way you play, which we can consider your playing strategy, plays an important role in determining your profit or loss, like other factors.

For me, when I play, I enter with the intention of double the amount of money and stop. This method may be followed by some people, and I do it sometimes. I determine the amount of money that I will gamble with, for example $100 and I try to get $200 and leave the casino or site if the plan worked  very well. If I am unlucky, once I lose $100, I will leave without adding a penny. What is interesting here is that even if I win, I stop and do not deviate from the scope of the plan. In such situations, especially when winning, the gambler may become greedy, and this may change the course of the game   .

What do you think of this method?
Is there anyone among you who does it?
Give us one of your winning strategies, of course if that is possible.
I prefer to double it. It's a game of luck, so I'd rather go hard in some games and just stake a lot on winning. And I do this after analyzing the game. Then, if it is worth playing double, Well, it's not always advisable to give it up in all your games, but when there is a sure one, you can do it. As a gambler, you should be able to tell when to do this. My friend did it and won, so I also tried it one time, though it wasn't a lot of money, but it went down well. 
4  Economy / Speculation / Re: Buy the DIP, and HODL! on: July 05, 2024, 11:57:27 PM
your are absolutely correct, buying at discount is the point behind buy the dips.

for instance; since bitcoin can change but the value does change, if we accumulate 0.05 at $5k when the price is high we might be getting around 0.1 $5k when the price is very low.

so the dips are good discount to what to level of stash we can accumulate.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What is your view and your opinion about Ethereum? on: July 05, 2024, 11:47:48 PM
Aside the fact that Ethereum is second highest cryptocurrency with a high market cap, I genuinely love the project but i don't over exaggerated things by comparing the profit it will yield to bitcoin because bitcoin is nuch more bigger than eth even if it starts getting high today it can't beat bitcoin but will remain second.
6  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What is the most reliable way of earning Bitcoin on: July 05, 2024, 11:46:53 PM
Well, I think it's investing in Bitcoin. When you already have a stable income, you can buy Bitcoin and let it grow. You can also get Bitcoin here by making posts and campaigns, which are not set up either, so don't put your mind on it; just get a stable, get finance, and buy your Bitcoin. 
7  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Re: Do Not Pressure Anyone Around You To Invest In Bitcoin. on: July 05, 2024, 11:44:11 PM
Personally I don't like the idea of making people go the same direction which you are focused on, that's why I think it's never good to pressure anyone to invest in bitcoin.

There are a million ways to succeed in life and bitcoin is just one of the investment that can make one break out of their current social status but there are others too like real esate and investing in stock markets etc but some of us seem it necessary to push all our acquaintances to invest in bitcoin which might be against there will.

If you want someone to invest in bitcoin you can seek their interest and what ever they respond is will determine the outcome.
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Why do traders lose money in trading? on: July 05, 2024, 11:35:40 PM
This stuff is actually happening in my office, in the FAC department where they sell the goods, while I work where we sell food. For the past 2 months, there have been good deals, and they find it difficult to get to their target. The reasons are that their management is poor and they don't know how to store count.

One of the things that makes traders lose more is store counting. If a trader knows how to store count, they might go register their expired goods, because bet the time you start pushing your goods on time and minding the profit because is almost gone, but just reach for your capital, then plus up the new goods to still make up your profile.

This is the work people study in school, but one trader will want to be the manager, director, and everything else, which is wrong.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin for your children & future wealth distribution on: July 05, 2024, 11:27:05 PM
Anytime that this conversation comes up , I will.always say, let kids be kids. We should think that they would miss anything by not learning about Bitcoin at a young age. There is more to their life and development than Bitcoin. Therefore I would not agree to anyone forcing Bitcoin knowledge upon them when they should be taking, music lessons, dance classes, football classes. The only Exception is if the kid show repeated interest in knowing about Bitcoin.
I will let my kids grow to ask what I really do to make money, then I will calmly explain to them, and if I notice their interest, I will start asking them to assist me in one or two things in the forum and see how smart they can be. Not all children can love to do it, but if one finds interest, I will continue to teach him or her till he can do it alone.

I'm not going to force teach anyone my kid about Bitcoin, but you believe society is alright telling our kids, maybe before them Bitcoin might even be studied in school (joke), but regardless, I will teach who is interested.

Of course they must not be Bitcoin holder, there are more to do.
10  Other / Meta / Re: Advantages of Bitcointalk over social media on: July 05, 2024, 11:14:51 PM
One thing about forums is that they give you space to think and want to come up with something sensible and motivate you sometimes to do research on, like, some social platform.

In forums, there's no bullying, and on other social media, there'll be times you have to be very strong to post even your content because of the amount of bullying there. I love my privacy and believe the forum gives me the room to express myself without being bullied but corrected. 
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Is gambling bad to the society? on: July 05, 2024, 10:57:56 PM
Gambling can affect self-esteem, relationship's, physical and mental health,work performance and social life. It can harm not only the person who gambles but also the family, friends, workplaces and communities.

So with all this I think if they put an restrictions on gambling it's not a bad idea at all, first why is gambling a problem?

Gambling can stimulate the brain's rewards system much like drugs or alcohol can, leading to addiction. If you have a problem with compulsive gambling, you may continually chase bets that lead to losses, use up savings and create debt.

You may hide your behavior and even turn to theft or fraud to support your addiction. So with my conclusion and my observation towards this gambling is really cousin harm to the life of those ones who are addicted to it most their families.

 Secondly what are the social problem caused by gambling?
(1) Depression and suicide
(2) bankruptcy, family-break up
(3) domestic abuse
(4) assault, fraud
(5) theft, and even homeless
Addiction to gambling is link to a range of serious personal and social harm such as those things I mentioned. These effects can be devastating to the individual as well as their friends, family, workplaces and community.

This are the harms and with all this are the reasons why, they see people who gambles as a distraction towards the society and the most people who are into all this are the addicted ones. So how is gambling harmful to the society, ills associate with problem gamblers are widespread and often go beyond and addition to gambling.

People who gambles can be at risk of this following categories of harm.
(1) Financial harms
(2) Erosion of savings
(3) Filling for bankruptcy
(4) Relationship conflicts
(5) Neglect of relationship with significant other
(6) Neglect of relationship with children
(7) Extend family and friends
(Cool Social isolation
(9) Emotional or psychological distress

So I don't really blame the people who sees gambling as a bad thing to the society, meanwhile If the younger ones take of the steps of being addicted don't you think they'll experience all this as well. So gambling it's bad to the society nevertheless it's also helping in the other hands, to ones which are benefiting and earning from it.

What is the mindset of a gambler? On my opinion pathological gamblers play the cope with a life stresses. Near-misses and personal choice give some gamblers a sense of control, winning money. Others believe they can beat the casino and win real money.

So the mindset are those things that attract harm to them and the society because they are focused on the money, and that's why I said it's also helping some people in other hands and it's also killing some people right now in the society. Behavior also involves that makes it look bad to the society, while trying to get back lost money by gambling more( chasing losses) lying to family members or other to hide the extent of your gambling.

Risking or losing important relationships, a job, or school or work opportunities because of gambling. Asking others to bail you out of financial trouble cause you have gambled money away.

So what I'm trying to conclude is that gambling isn't something you should take as a hobby or as a means of earning just to make a living. So what are your thoughts?
If you say irresponsible gambler, then you are right. As a gambler, you should be able to tell when to get hold of yourself. State rules and always having your limited amount for the day or week. You shouldn't be irresponsible when gambling. Like those who go into visuals, these people are actually the ones society is met to be looking into because, why do you gamble until you gamble with your own dress? What the heck!  this is alarming? There's actually fun in gambling when you gamble well; that's why lots of developed countries are even going into it every day. To avoid addiction, get rules and always stick to them.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Patience can help alot on: July 05, 2024, 10:47:13 PM
The game of gambling isn't something that people with low patience can survive be it the different types of gambling @sports betting  @casino games like dice and slots, patience is still the key to survive. Sometimes anxiousness and anxiety can make a gambler take decision that he might end up regretting.

Today I experience this ill feeling although am okay now but I thought I should share my experience and thought with some of the gamblers here to see if we are on the same page.

I made a very wrong decision on a game I staked today and this is unlike me because I don't normally check on my games until its settled because sometimes you will tempted with some crazy things like cash-out which is what I did today and although you won't blame me to some extent but still if I was patient enough as the final results if the games came through and Instead of winning the whole money, I got only a fraction of the funds.

There's this method my friend younger sis. and her friend used that's been so interesting to me sometimes ago. They stake the same game, and they use a small amount to stake one and bigger funds for the other one. The agreement was to withdraw the smallest amount in the middle when they couldn't trust the game and share the funds and risk the other one, and this really went well for them because, despite withdrawing the smallest one, they were still able to withdraw the bigger one one day too because they won it. But sometimes it's greed that makes some gamblers lose everything. They don't want to be patient or stake little to get little, but they always want to stake little with big, big odd.

Or are they all scams  Huh
Well, airdrops can sometimes be risky, so before you participate in any airdrop, you have to do more research and be very cautious about it to avoid a potential scam or losing up.

Especially when it sounds too good to be true, do your verification very well because we all know that nothing good comes earlier, so get the information well. 
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Practical methods to help addicted gamblers(2). on: July 05, 2024, 07:41:15 AM
I have seen two people start the same business, and one is doing much better than the other. It's the ability of the one getting it written to tell the other how to do it that's always difficult.

The reason is because people always want to be ahead in everything. Well, in the gambling world, one who makes more wins can advise the other on how to go about it to win more, and he might be willing to obey him and follow his instructions, but advising someone to stop or play wisely might actually feel like you want to win alone or have a game plan.

To me, if one isn't doing well, teach them. Don't give them the fish, but teach them how to fish. Like the saying goes, "You no fit advice poor man if you no put small money join," despite his benefits, if there's no backup, your advice is a waste.

Advice alone can't get a gambler to stop or gamble wisely, in as much as he needs money, he will gamble the one he has for a bigger one.
What a gamble addict needs is been occupied with other things and staying far from a gambling platform and center, that's where you start helping out.
15  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Re: Learn and observe the market on: July 02, 2024, 01:59:14 AM
From what I understand about observing the market it means not investing or taking part in the market but staying out and figuring out what is really happening around the market.

If that is what you are taking about then I don't agree whit that, I prefer to be part of the market and learn than observing the market.
It's good to learn but for me learning comes from experience and experience comes from practicality which means I will have to be part of the market already.

If I learn from others experience i will definitely not need to observe before I go into it but I will depend on my experience and the experience shared by others too.

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will Bitcoin exit forever? on: June 29, 2024, 11:11:12 PM
Well according to little idea of my Bitcoin has been designed to be a decentralized and persistent store of value , it's the future is not guaranteed.

  Bitcoin could exit indefinitely if:
1  The demand for Bitcoin remains, and people continue to use and accept it.
2 The decentralization network of computers verify transactions (node) continue to operate.
3. No significant technical or security flaws are discovered that could compromise the network.

However, there are also potential risks and uncertainties that could impact Bitcoins existence, such as:

1. Regulatory changes or bans in various countries.
2. Competition from other cryptocurrency or alternative technologies.
3. Security threats or 51% attacks on the network.
4. Loss of public interest or confidence.

It's important to note that the concept of "forever" is relative, and even if Bitcoin doesn't exist in its current form.
Bitcoin's future is uncertain, and its longevity definitely depends on various factors.

Off course, nothing lasts forever, but it has improved incontinence through updates and development. Secondly, it's longevity also depends on how adept it is at those factors and keeps on meeting the needs of the users.

Another is the society defined now by the internet, to which everyone is wagering to belong; the Bitcoin market is becoming wide and certainly will still be there for years to come. 
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling platform require wager on first deposit before withdrawal on: June 28, 2024, 10:44:12 AM
For some casinos, they'll claim that it is used as a means to prevent money laundering through their sites - so that players wont just register an account and withdraw it instantly to a different address, so to prevent this they will have to wager it first. Although, personally I think 5x is a bit large - like for bcgame you'll have to wager your deposit once before you'll be allowed to withdraw and that's kinda okay compared to the 5x.

I don't know the site you got that image from but there was a site here that made it mandatory for users to wager their first deposit 5x and any other deposits after that won't need any wagering requirement  - I'm not sure if that's the same one you got the image from (I can't even recall the name of the site anymore).

You have a point where you said they might be doing this to avoid people using different address to withdraw money but just as you said 5 it quite much for a gambling platform which I doubt to be legit.

At most 2 deposit which a person can use at least one among it to play a game. And keep on depositing without using the first deposit.

Secondly it's all depends on the country. Because there are country which wouldn't put their consumer on that stress .

if it's worth ricking then I advice you go with less funds to repeatedly, on one account check it out and if it's legit you can still hold on to it minimum to avoid losing more.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: Are Inflation and Deflation the Worst Economic Threats? on: June 17, 2024, 06:59:43 PM

With inflation, they can just adopt other currencies and go on with their lives despite the rising prices of products. Unemployment also since companies will shut down.

Either of those things will make a country weak. If there is no military power right between the neighboring countries while the other is weak, it's the border issues that arise. One country will take advantage of the turmoil. The war with a neighbor is likely the worst that can happen.

As much as inflation and deflation are major factors in the economic threat, political instability is the worst.

Uncertainty in government policies, changes in leadership, or conflict can create the worst in the economy.

One of the major reasons for the hardship in our country, Nigeria, is bad government, if you may ask me.

The leadership method is so uncertain, and it's had a lot of bad effects on the citizens, which has contributed to making the youth and even other men go into things they vow never to do.

I believe inflation and deflation can be managed compared to an uncertain government where no one is ready to learn or listen to others.

Only the uncertainty government can cause debt, which is another factor, conflict, and also unemployment, which is the major reason I believe the uncertainty government is the worst factor.
20  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Re: crypto vs content creation, which is more profitable? on: June 17, 2024, 06:31:20 PM
To invest/buy bitcoin, you need to have money; some people dey lucky to dey work for crypto projects or promote/advertise them, for example, through signature campaigns, but if you no dey into that, you have to buy bitcoin with your money, and you need to be working or earning money in real life to be able to channel the funds into buying bitcoin.

Crypto no be job, even if you wanna engage in crypto trading, you still need money to be able to buy the coins, crypto usually dey profitable for people wey get the money to buy a lot of it or people wey be early investors. So if content creating makes sense and you believe say e fit give you money, then do it, you go fit use the money buy bitcoins and still look for crypto jobs to do online.
As much as content creators generate money from their content, there are lots of them that are into crypto currency exchange, but they are actually silent about it do to the society we live in.

Most of these content creators have a lot of investment, but usually the content covers it up.

There's something I noticed about investors, or maybe Bitcoin investors. Bitcoin investors are always not showing off where they get their money randomly. Render, make it low-key, and invest in it.

If you watch the content of Egugun of Lagos, you will realize that the majority of the big boys are into one or two trading markets but disguard themselves. They are always low-key and not social media people unless they are interviewed.
Most of these people have more money than the content creators, but because they're not celebrities and their net worth is not on the internet, we always accept what we see, which is the content creators. 

It takes a long while before a content creators can get much money and fame. And some times money is also involved in getting this fame.
They don't just make it big over night, that's one thing we should know.
