1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: This maybe a dumb question but is there a masternode that doesn't require crypto on: January 25, 2021, 02:03:24 PM
to my knowledge it should technically be possible because a master node is simply a full node that is responsible for verification of the transactions, ensuring the integrity of the blockchain, and building the blockchain, ... and getting paid for the "work" they do.
but so far nobody has been able to come up with a design that both ensures the decentralization and makes it fraud proof. so they have to add some level of centralization and enforce the node owner to make a large investment in that coin and lock the funds up too.

BTW you are asking the right questions.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is it possible for a Billion max supply capped altcoin to reach $100? on: January 25, 2021, 01:44:45 PM
price of anything depends on supply and demand BUT only the circulating supply is important. circulating supply is a supply that can be accessed by anyone and not just be locked up somewhere in one person's (aka the creator's) wallet.

to answer your question, if the "circulating supply" of an altcoin is 1 billion then it is highly unlikely that the said altcoin's value goes above $1, and if it does it would be considered a bubble even if it stays there. $100 could be considered impossible.

if the "circulating supply" is small but the "fake supply" is 1 billion then the real value should be speculated based on that real circulating supply.
for example XRP has fake 1 billion supply while only a smaller percentage of it is actually in circulation instead of being locked up in Ripple foundation pockets. but since the circulating supply is also big and also because the coin is useless its price never really goes up. hence the always low but still among top 10 altcoin's market cap.

but it would be trivial to create an altcoin with 1 billion fake supply where the owner locks up 999.999 million and only releases a tiny portion in circulation and get a very high price and high market cap.

The signal line of the RSI indicator on the weekly chart is close to the resistance level, and if there is a crossover from top to bottom, then the correction will continue. In this case, there is a possibility of seeing Bitcoin even near the $20,000 mark!

i have never seen this happen in any market specially when the market trend is bullish. in a bearish market of course it is easily possible to see a support broken then it escalates and price drops a lot more. in the current situation on the other hand it will never happen even if price sees another drop there are a lot of very strong supports that cannot be broken and they all the way above $20k.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / shitcoins will tell you all kinds of lies just to get pumped (Dash) on: January 04, 2021, 07:17:36 PM
for years the shitcoin known as Dash has been sold to newbies by fooling them into thinking it is better than bitcoin and one of their advertising strategies have always been to introduce it as a "privacy coin" again with "better than bitcoin" lie.

now that there is a crackdown to remove all this types of shitcoins they come clean and tell the truth because now it suits them!

From a technical standpoint, Dash’s privacy functionality is no greater than Bitcoin’s, making the label of “privacy coin” a misnomer for Dash.

be careful what you believe specially when it comes to the lies that the "top altcoins" tell you
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: eth 2.0 is this the end of bitcoin? on: December 30, 2020, 07:07:36 AM
first of all useless shitcoins such as ethereum don't have any effects on bitcoin whatsoever. they are only there to fill the pockets of experienced trades that participate in that shitcoin's pump and dumps.

secondly 2.0 is a newbie fooling technique whereas nothing fundamental changed about ethereum. it is still the same useless shitcoin that is only used to create useless scam ICO tokens to dump on newbies and make a ton of money.
otherwise all the bugs, scaling issues, huge fee, network congestion, network failure, lack of immutability, slow synchronization, no security, centralization, huge premine,... still exist.

the only difference that 2.0 makes is that it will eventually give a shitton of profit to those who are holding the 72 million premined ETH.

What is happening with altcoins that drain they supply of coins in sell pool? Market literally stop at some point.

it is partly because people generally have no faith in altcoins so they never stick around in them for long. and partly because everyone who has been around long enough will want to increase the amount of bitcoin they have so they al ways take the opportunity to buy more of it before its price goes up. that is why altcoins are abandoned like this.

and finally it is because this trend has been happening for as long as this market existed so everyone is now automatically dumps altcoins without thinking about it.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Etherium on: December 09, 2020, 04:25:11 PM
shitcoins have always been dumping.

whenever the bitcoin trading volume is higher it is a good indication that the money is exiting the altcoin market as everyone keeps selling their coins. obviously the biggest coins take the biggest hit.

Getting the lambo instead of bitcoin wouldn't make much sense, just think of all the procedures and everything that would be necessary to get the lambo to your  home.
Taking bitcoin is far easier  and plus you get an asset that  increases in value ad the lambo would only depreciate.

if you already have some bitcoin then receiving the Lambo makes more sense, specially if you like that particular car. some people even spend their bitcoin to buy things including Lambo at some point so why not do it right now as the reward.
although i don't think that many would agree with me but i am sure there are people out there who do.

i know its a stupid question to ask i tried building the .sln file but i don't seem to find the BitCrack.exe anywhere i think I'm doing it wrong can someone please tell me on how to run the BitCrack.snl?

normally visual studio creates a new folder called "bin" and places the binaries inside that folder under debug or release subfolders. have you looked in there?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Where DeFi is headed on: December 04, 2020, 03:25:37 AM
DeFi is headed to the same place where ICOs and other alternative names headed before it, the garbage can. you see changing the name of creating a token and selling it to people won't change the nature of the tokens. in the end we have never needed any "token" for any of the projects that existed. for example the best thing you can find on ethereum platform is the DEXes which are pretty crappy and useless because you can only swap tokens with each other, even for these we don't need any token! the token was there only to scam people.

the real question you should be asking is not what these tokens do but whether people even use them. the answer is no.
11  Economy / Speculation / Re: Some twist in take for BTC what's next? on: December 04, 2020, 03:09:00 AM
What I am seeing if you try to zoom out the chart with higher time frame is a bearish pattern, a double top. So I am expecting some dumps from here.

a double top is in short time frame within a single trend not in a 3 year trend after a lot of swings arounds and multiple trends that changed places!
besides if you move the chart to the left until you remove from first quarter of 2017 until today you will see the exact same thing and if you go back inside topics in this board you will see the exact same claim about "double top" when price reached $1100 back in 2017!!! it didn't make sense then and it is not making any sense now either.
12  Economy / Speculation / Re: December for moon on: December 01, 2020, 12:28:15 PM
this month is probably going to be another month for squeezing the newbies and the weak hands out. we already had one squeeze in the past couple of days where they caused a panic sell and the weak hands jumped at the "opportunity" to sell their bitcoins cheap before price goes back up again.
this can be repeated a couple of times to get their coins out of their hands before we pass $21k.
13  Economy / Speculation / Re: INFLUENCE OF BITCON ON ETHEREUM's PRICE on: November 24, 2020, 05:21:14 PM
THE PRICE OF ETH SHOULD BE 1/17TH OF THE BITCOIN

if we are talking about what the prices should be then price of shitcoins should be 0 and they shouldn't exist at all. but shoulds don't make this market the pump and dumps make it and shitcoins with unlimited supplies such as ETH can only get so many pumps before they stop rising altogether.  and ETH already had too many pumps.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Altcoin with BTC pair is at the bottom on: November 20, 2020, 06:56:57 PM
Do you think it can be a good time to invest in some altcoin for hodl with the BTC pair instead of USDT pair?

altcoins have never been good options for "holding", they are just too unreliable in long run. most of them also have unlimited supplies which means automatically they are like fiat and are inflationary so there is no way they could rise in price in long run hence making "holding" a very bad decision.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Why can't the current Ethereum price keep up with the Bitcoin price? on: November 20, 2020, 10:15:08 AM
it is simply because bitcoin is a well known currency with a lot of actual real world use cases, it is decentralized, secure and fast to use too. it is also immutable which is one of the most important factors in the blockchain technology. on top of that bitcoin has a limited and small supply.

while ethereum is a shitcoin that is centralized, slow, expensive and mutable. meanwhile ETH has unlimited and a gigantic supply that will never let its price go up. not to mention that ETH is practically useless. the only time you see it used is when someone wants to create a scam ICO token.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is there really only 2 types of Altcoins from a Investor's view? on: November 20, 2020, 10:03:37 AM
i think it is mostly playing with words. there is only one type of altcoins that investors care about and that is a pumping altcoin, everything else is jut pointless noise.
if we look at history, whenever people are so into a certain altcoin that has always meant that the said altcoin has been pumping well. evident from the top altcoins and the short lived hyped up trends such as ICO, DEFI,...
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Viabtc Founder Reveals BCH Fork Idea Called Bitcoin Cat on: August 16, 2020, 02:35:55 PM
it seems like a very simple formula to make some money quickly.
- make a name for yourself in the cryptocurrency scene (eg. ViaBtc, McAfee, Ver, Bitmain,...)
- either copy bitcoin and create a shitcoin to dump on idiots or start an ICO, IEO, STO, DEFI, XYZ,...
- dump that shit on whoever is idiot enough to buy it
- count the money you made...
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: How was this address created on: August 16, 2020, 01:35:00 PM
They call those addresses "Proof of Burn"

these addresses should never be referred to as proof of burn because even though they are essentially doing the same thing, they are doing it the worst way possible since each time these addresses receive a payment that is one extra burden on each bitcoin node per output and they have to keep these garbage UTXOs in their database and load it each time forever.

whereas the correct way that is using OP_RETURN doesn't have this issue since nodes recognize these as provably unspendable and such outputs are never added to their database.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Who said that ICOs are dead? on: July 23, 2020, 09:09:47 AM
ICOs died about 2 years go by the end of 2017 when people started catching up and realize the scam that has been happening and how much money they lost by not knowing it. just because some project seems to have raised a lot of money it doesn't change that fact.

did you know one of the main reasons for ICOs have been money laundering?
it is being swept under the rug but it is true. they simply create some garbage token, spend a little money creating a pretty website and some advertisement so that it "looks legit" and then launder their own dirty money into that garbage and get clean money out with very little cost and possibly even some profit as some newbies might also participate!
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Few questions about decentralized projects and fake volume on: July 23, 2020, 08:28:35 AM
i feel like a couple of things are being confused with each other here.

having a coin listed on a centralized exchange is not going to change anything about that project. after all bitcoin is THE decentralized cryptocurrency and it is listed on all centralized  exchanges and decentralized ones alike.
similarly having a coin listed on on decentralized exchanges doesn't change anything about that project.

what is important is the project itself. there are many that are only pretending at being decentralized, specially tokens, when they are really not. having their token listed on a DEX is not by choice but by lack of it. their token is usually either too useless or too unpopular to be worth listing on a centralized exchanges since they are always bigger and more strict about what they list.

as for fake volume, it is being blown out of proportion. existence of it in a market is not the end of the world. manipulation exists everywhere in the world even in traditional markets.

so again it comes down to the project itself. if a cryptocurrency is really useful then it shouldn't care about where it is listed or whether its market has some manipulation, fake volume,... the utility ensures its success and survival.
