201  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Recent Icos facts on: December 08, 2019, 03:46:42 AM
The truth of the situation is this. Icos are unreliable
Token crowdfunding is unreliable.

It is up to you to decide which is the best action to take

Both ieo/ico/ or other form of coin offering does not guarantee you anything

You can join ico and make profit
You can join ico and get losses

Just
Always dyor
The same way IPO and any startup investment works. There's no guarantee that a project will become a huge success and that they didn't exit scam either. It's really hard nowadays to find a reliable project that can be trusted let alone a really successful project with promising futures.
There might be some good project out there or even undervalued project but we need to face the fact that we are overwhelmed with a project that merely created for grabbing people's money.
202  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Risks with using trading Signals on: December 07, 2019, 09:50:23 AM
When we relied on signals or some groups who shares their specific analysis, you won't be able to decide for certain actions. You might fall on wrong moves which eventually unpredictable, because some certain cases will divert. Your expectations will not meet the reality of the situation, and if signals will be the reference for every matter of perspectives we won't achieve our goals.
Always do more research and study deeply how the market changes the pattern, because someday it's worth for our hardwork.
and actually, if a group of analyst giving their trading signals to their member which could possibly amount thousands it will definitely alter what they initially predicted and create some kind of artificial pump and dump because many people are buying or selling at the same time which could be taken advantage of by the anaylst that have these trading signal service. People should actually take that into consideration before even joining any these so called premium trading signals.
203  Economy / Economics / Re: Does halving really create deflation? on: December 07, 2019, 08:16:26 AM
Not deflation but reduced supply I guess, because halving day as a phenomenal event is risky if used as a reference for future price increases. However, what is clear, is that inflation and supply of Bitcoin units certainly decreased as happened in the previous year, 1 year after the halving moment, the price of Bitcoin increase drastically.
Reducing supply is not the right word here because that means the total supply that already planned to at 21 million of bitcoin will be reduced and there's nothing like that in the bitcoin blockchain. The halving itself only affects the reward that'll be given for each block while the reward from the transaction fee will also remain the same for the miners and I don't think something like this could really create deflation.
204  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Staking vs. mining altcoins on: December 07, 2019, 05:43:30 AM
Between staking and mining I think very easy if use money for investing with IEO of ICO project, just waiting when listing on exchange market then sell our coin and get much profit, for staking have waiting each month to receive our payment and never sell coin assets use for staking in want to get reward, how ever always have lower price with staking coin and get lost but mining have the same thing with lower earning every day.
The risk involved when it comes to staking is the price fluctuation indeed. But, it's a lot safer than investing in IEO or ICO because at least you can observe the market while staking but investing in IEO and ICO the dumping usually happens in a matter of minutes and you will always miss it. You need to consider the fact that if you are staking the top 20 coins it will increase the safety of your money and the IEO or ICO project could turn into an exit scam anytime.
205  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: why every IEO on P2PB2B exchange? on: December 07, 2019, 04:35:48 AM

sir this exchange made fun of IEO, i mean every single project?  LoL ,
even it scam project or not they don't care about it,
The point of IEO is to host crowdfunding for the project in a more legitimate way than ICO and also involves the exchanges' reputation so that the exchange and project have something to lose if things don't go well and if an exchange like this P2PB2B doesn't have the reputation, to begin with, kinda silly indeed. I mean, what's the point of holding an IEO if there are no additional security measures to prevent scam and this one exchange already got a bad reputation and have nothing to lose. If people keep investing in the IEO held by this exchange I could only scratch my head confused.


I think many coin IEO listed with P2PB2B ECHANGE market because have lower price for paying fee, maybe if Listed with other exchange market like Binance need to prepare much money for developer can listed their IEO coin on Binance, how ever with P2PB2B exchange less rule and many coin can listed without have prepare their whitepaper and valid team.
That's the point, the shady project that doesn't meet the requirement of some popular exchanges turn their head to this exchange and that's why most of the IEO they hosted are kinda low quality. basically it's just a money-grabbing.
206  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: why every IEO on P2PB2B exchange? on: December 06, 2019, 02:28:04 PM
Where do you think all those IEO leftover goes if there's no popular exchange willingly to accept them or host their IEO simply because they didn't meet the requirement? P2PB2B I assume is a fairly new exchange which is kinda fishy and I could say it's 3rd tier exchange and there are so many complaints regarding this exchange. You could make an assumption that they want to compete based on quantity rather than improving their quality.
207  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Frozing Funds from Hacked Exchanges on: December 06, 2019, 08:55:37 AM
The point of Binance freezing the stolen funds is to prevent it from moving to another address and being laundered all over again and while giving time for the respective exchange to somehow investigate and cooperate with binance in order to return the money. This is also why KYC is a requirement in most of the popular exchanges so that they could trace who's the holder of that account but it could be a double edge sword. So, the money will not be distributed directly to the users who lost their money but instead given back to the exchange who got their funds stolen which is basically the same thing anyway and more efficient and of course, how Binance and other exchange could cooperate resulting to the return of the fund is not that simple.
208  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: DigiByte delisted from Poloniex!!! on: December 06, 2019, 07:51:29 AM
Things like this will make the crypto world more mature in the future.
If I look at it from the source, the words of Tate are so bad that poloniex looks for their mistakes and delisted them.
Maybe Tate's words have a point, but by delivering them in a tweet and being read by the public, I don't think it's a good method. This is like spit out the mistakes of others without discussing personally first. So that is the risk of DGB to be registered.
Well, every action have a consequence but straight up delisting a coin because of some hurtful words isn't a wise decision either not that I'm really fond of this digibyte anyway but still feels kinda odd to see politic in crypto market but who am I to judge poloniex is owned by those people and any side effect of delisting Digi is their responsible although I don't think it has significant effect to the exchange anyway. But, I see that Digibyte have rather higher trading volume in other exchange so this is probably will not affect that much.
209  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Alibaba cooperates with new blockchain platform, Is this project worth following on: December 06, 2019, 07:12:56 AM
The first thing I liked about this announcement is that this space is constantly gaining attention irrespective of all that has been said and/or labelled the crypto space to be. Secondly, this is a good move although it has been a while I read anything about credits blockchain, but however it shows real world use is coming up and therefore if properly managed will bring more exposure to this space.
It's the blockchain system that got the spotlight though. Meanwhile, cryptos will remain under the government's restriction in China and it's not going to be resolved anytime soon. Although I do agree that the blockchain system has now recognized to be useful and with all these big corporations trying to implement the system for various use and it could probably contribute to the development of blockchain system.
210  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Can i play games and get paid in crypto ? on: December 05, 2019, 05:05:51 AM
Actually never heard of the platform that pays people to play PC games like CSGO and Dota 2 with promising reward most of them are just faucets and last time I heard it's a platform called BUFF that tries to bring that into reality but now I've never heard about them. However, there are plenty of people that willing to buy skins or item in exchange for cryptos and I assume that a lot profitable than any other method which usually only get you pennies. Try to look up some forums or websites that usually being used for skin or item marketplace. Crypto has become something mainstream in that kind of websites anyway.
211  Economy / Economics / Re: Would you use FB's Libra? on: December 05, 2019, 04:36:10 AM
I think because libra is a stable coin with a price of $ 1, it cannot be used for trading. Then I include people which is not active
on facebook, then there is no reason for me to use libra coin. In my opinion libra will be very useful for Facebook ads users, they
will be easy to make payments if using libra coin. So libra will be better if used as a digital currency, because the price is stable.
The price of Libra still not yet revealed though I think it will not become exactly $1 because it's backed up by various assets and the price to dollar may vary aswell and changes everytime and to make it as a payment method for Facebook ads makes sense but to be honest it will add a lot unnecessary complication that shouldn't actually be there in the first place.
212  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Other ways of digital Marketing outside Bounties for cryptocurrencies. on: December 05, 2019, 02:14:54 AM
If a coin get advertised on big websites like CMC or good wallet platform like coinbase or coinomi they will surely see good investors because many people trust these big platforms better than social media like facebook and twitter
But it comes down to the investors' own judgement and most of them aren't trusting project just because it got listed into a platform like CMC although if it already got listed into a reputed exchange it's more likely to be a legit project no one knows whether a project could hold on in the future and even progress further.
Some unique fact that I recently know is promoting through emails also considered the most effective because people are frequently checking their emails for deals and unread messages.
213  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Can this Be The Solution To The Incessant Exchange hacks? on: December 05, 2019, 12:38:57 AM
Some popular exchanges already have this and for example binance. Try to look up their bug bounty program but the reality it doesn't work as expected because people have this thing called greediness and if they are wicked enough they will just prefer to use the security hole and steal the money rather than receiving the rewards which at this point can be considered pennies. You can't expect to hire some security expert and get done with it either because a security hole is really random.
214  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Is Technical Analysis Bullshit or Not? on: December 04, 2019, 05:19:15 AM
Only newborns will say that Technical Analysis is bullshit, if you are included I hope you will learn more about Technical Analysis.  because what I know is that on TA includes indicators and so on it was created by great people so as to make it easy for people who have learned it.  and I myself use TA to trade.  I am not satisfied to study TA anymore and want to continue learning.  try to see the TA that I made in 2018.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2857339.0
It is obvious that there are going to be many people that are going to say that technical analysis does not work, this is similar to all of those people that complain about a particular diet that they followed and which did not gave to them the results that they were expecting, if you do it right then you are going to obtain results.

But many people never take the time to learn enough about technical analysis and how to put together a coherent strategy, so it is obvious they are never going to succeed using technical analysis.
The actual problem there are so many people out there claiming to be an expert analyst or trading expert giving away their "technical analyzation" regarding the market and what decision should be taken and turns out to be a big fat bullshit afterward. Those people are the reason people call that TA is kinda bullshit meanwhile there are indeed some legit TA out there or can even be done by ourselves if done right but that given fact that I mentioned kinda ruin the whole reputation of this Technical Analysis. Can't really blame both sides if the one that causes the problem aren't them.
215  Economy / Economics / Re: Does China Control Bitcoin? on: December 04, 2019, 04:38:42 AM

I disagree with china can determine the fate of bitcoin.  There is a large user population outside of china.  China has banned and unbanned bitcoin more than I can follow.  Bitcoin kept plugging down the road, china can do what they want it wont affect the long term viability of bitcoin
But it is the fact that China currently controls the majority of hashes although it's far from 51% attack it could be a problem later on. However, if China really does harsh law enforcement regarding cryptocurrencies or even banned it with punishment for those who break the law. We could potentially lose a major hashes power However it will then adjust automatically after 2016 blocks and become profitable again for small miners to mine bitcoin. Actually there's nothing really need to worry about as of now and to be clear, China didn't control Bitcoin but a price manipulation with massive capital could still happen.
216  Economy / Economics / Re: Does halving really create deflation? on: December 04, 2019, 03:16:08 AM
Once the halving occurs, the miners and other holders should not focus on selling their bitcoin because it is better if they will hold it because once the majority of the people in the community knows that the supply will be harder to sustain then it will create a panic buying because people don't want to get left behind in having a bitcoin which will result for a price spike.
Do you think miner doesn't need to the money they just mined to pay for the expenses which are quite big? They could only hold after spending some portion of their mined coins into paying the expenses and to be honest, it's not that easy. The plat that you elaborate also purely speculative and doesn't guarantee better profit because you don't know what might happen in the future and how do you know there'll be panic buying while the total supply remains the same? it's not like most people are really concerned about the decrease of miners reward anyway.
217  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: CMC and coingecko on: December 04, 2019, 02:24:54 AM
In some cases of course CMC and Coingecko have their respective considerations and rules for including tokens or coins or exchanges in their lists. Although overall the two websites provide almost the same information, comparing prices and quality globally. I also often use both to check prices, because this is very efficient when we can see price comparisons from various exchanges in one click.
The price graph could differ though. It seems they are taking the price chart from different sources and there's a time when one of them encounters an error in their directories. I personally uses CMC more than coingecko just because it pleased my eyes by looking relatively clean.

CMC and coingecko both very useful for us, i used to use both however i am confused why many coins and tokens not listing in CMC but listing in coingecko, not only coins and tokens but also many exchanges, is this because coingecko become more popular than CMC, or for something else.
Very hard to list Binance and more hard to list coinbase. Coin or token is listing on exchange doesn't depends on popularity. Extremely clear that coinmarketcap is more popular than coingecko. Did you ever heard that any project so much excitement to get listed coingecko.
True, although coingecko works exactly the same as CMC popularity affects a lot. People already have the mindset of thinking that anything listed in CMC is legit while that's actually not true but however, being listed in CMC will give a good first impression to anyone who hears the coin.
218  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum staking concept 2020 (Proof of stake) on: December 03, 2019, 10:17:27 AM
Turning into PoS which requires staking 32 ETH which is fairly expensive for some of the people although it won't go anywhere and instead of growing is a good deal I must say. Less carbon footprint and doesn't need to invest in GPU which to be honest if we're trying to reach profit will definitely need a few high-end GPUs so there's no excuse for the media to say that we're doing PoW for nothing. The specs also relatively low and the internet connection will not be a problem if the people who want to stake have home internet cables. Some people are okay even if the reward relatively small and some are not, there are people who have money but don't know what to do and as easy as staking is, it will be a good option for that kind of person. This also attract my interest.
219  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: A piece of an advice on: December 03, 2019, 04:13:12 AM
All in all, it all comes back to you eventually. It's your call, your choice, none other than yours.
DYOR, contribute, hold, take benefit, sell, Do whatever you wanna do however never "indiscriminately hold" since somebody said as much!
This is the funny thing, just because some other strangers on the internet said that you should hodl, doesn't mean you have to follow their advice.
This is why, when someone just blindy invest on something especially if that because of someone told you so, when the outcome is the opposite of what is expected, who are you going to blame? The person that gave you the advice? Smh

Most of the time people don't even consider how biased all these so-called trading advisors are even they are popping everywhere including youtube and the funniest thing is people believe them despite not knowing their background. If it's not for some motive they won't take the hard way to make their own broadcast in youtube and any other platform just to tell people to do this and do that although some of the people can be trusted it's always better to stay cautious and not easily believing someone we don't know. Take for example the trading groups that uses everyone's resources to dump and pump based on their personal need.
220  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Morgan Creek is Against The BTC Halving Popular Opinion. What do You think on: December 03, 2019, 02:39:35 AM
The people who expect the price to go up at literally anything that happens to bitcoin is for sure overly optimistic anyway. The halving is already proposed from the day bitcoin was born and it's not a surprise. The total supply will remain the same and capped at 21 million and people shouldn't expect anything big to happen. Even I really doubt that it will do anything to bitcoin price even the slightest because halving should actually become a norm in the crypto community but people keep on discussing this. Heck, even burning coin that has done by some of the altcoins out there did nothing nowadays but it's a piece of big news like mass adoption or such that affect so much.
