561  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Scammers are lazy on: November 09, 2018, 10:27:20 PM
Most of people have no antivirus or pretty weak software, so it is easy for hackers to spread viruses using popunder advertisments. The are not lazy at all.
In terms of spreading virus or creating phishing site yeah, they are not lazy at all. Instead, they really seems having so much free time to do so and
to willingly scamming people they already have the commitment. Just think about it, who in the world would spend so much time pursuing something ambiguous.
562  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why aren't cryptocurrencies successful as a medium of payment on: November 08, 2018, 10:10:46 PM
The reason is that the growth of cryptocurrency is uncertain. When the growth of Bitcoin reaches a certain peak and stabilizes, XRP and XLM will quickly occupy the international payment market.
In term of stability XRP and XLM is nothing compared to stablecoin that will always hold its value 1:1 with the pegged currency.
Just see USDT and TrueUSD I can't see why those stablecoin have yet to be adopted as a mean of payment processor but certainly can be a good alternative.
563  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why people try to create their own coins? on: November 08, 2018, 10:07:09 PM
Everything rests only on the opportunity to receive money for development, I support this idea and this is clearly a bad idea, because people's trust is not an unlimited resource, so you need to properly use it and understand that today it has a value that is still more expensive than BTC

Not because of it. I think blockchain is in fashion, so people want to create their own. Moreover, many people just try out, and I believe attempts are important. There won't be some good projects without many bad ones!
That's quite logical, even there's hundred thousand of worthless coin being deployed until now by individual or atleast tech savvy because they are just being curious.
There's some article that address this thing where everyday hundred of bitcoin hardfork is being created but ended up being a worthless coin because people are doing that for fun.
564  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Wallet hacking is it possible? on: November 08, 2018, 09:51:22 PM
Most online wallet providers like xapo, coinbase, MEW and Blockchain cannot be the hack. These vendors always have a 24-hour staff to prevent possible problems and operations, and they handle everything quickly to avoid the impact customer.
Not really sure that MEW have 24h staff because honestly, it's a website with a running online wallet, they don't offer any kind of premium service, even the source code of MEW is out there and you can build one in your local server.
565  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: altcoins are dying on: November 04, 2018, 11:51:35 PM
It's happening right in front of us. Every day there are projects that have not kept the promise to investors and they have to be closed.
Most of the project like that is a worthless project anayway. The ones that have enough fund and developer to the project seems to still stick to their initial roadmap
and knowing that those project can be considered legit on its process to create a finalized product at the end.
566  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Will Ethereum be more stable in the future? on: November 04, 2018, 11:48:48 PM
I think that in the near future it will not be stable. So far, even bitcoin is quite volatile, so it is too early to talk about the stability of the crypo.
Atleast it will be more stable when the market is mature enough and already developing quite huge capitalization also at the same time it will be more resistance to market manipulation. The higher market capitalization the higher strenght it carry. Although when a market is purely based on demand and supply it will always be more volatile.
567  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Are airdrops really worth it? on: November 04, 2018, 10:43:09 PM
For now it is not too worthy because it has very little airdrop that has a large reward value, and the conditions are also mostly have to use our identity (kyc) but if you use Kyc it is very risky in my opinion

Thats true. Our information/data is more important now  and not enough for the value of airdrop in some project. There is a risk involved if our info is exposed. Though there are airdrops before that is worthy, but those scams airdrop are flooding. Just be careful with airdrop you are joining and think twice if it needs your valuable info.
Only choose airdrop from a worthy project that has proven to be legit, never ever try a biased phishy project just for the sake of few dollars because that'll be utterly dumb.
Or if I'm telling you guys better stay away from airdrop at all since the risk imposed is not worth $5.
568  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why many projects are dead on: November 04, 2018, 10:22:45 PM
Maybe at this time there are many companies who die because of team members who have given up on working hard and finding a way out of a problem because they are a little desperate to see the bad price movements shown by the market.
Projects will not be able to have any Blockchain technology if they are not legit. That is why they are not around anymore.
They still be able to have blockchain technology, Blockchan is a free technology, people just need to know how it works and how to implement
and anyone could pretty much deploy any blockchain technology according to their respective knowledge in regard of programming and implementation.
569  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: KYC in crypto, does it really require? on: November 04, 2018, 10:20:44 PM
Each team decides whether to enter the KYC procedure. Bad when the team does not report this in advance. There have been cases when investors have invested their money in the project. After that, the team reported: for investors to get their money, they need to go through KYC. This is not correct.
While most of the time it's the investor that too lazy to read the terms & agreement I think it's also a necessary thing for the project to make a warning, I mean a big warning that it requires KYC to invest into their project. Hiding the KYC is just seems like a trickery from the investor side.
570  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Which site are you using for keeping track of the value of tokens? on: November 04, 2018, 10:18:04 PM
So, there are a lot of sites on the market keeping track of the value of our tokens. Of course is most used. But I don't like it that much. On the homepage there is just too little information and I can't keep track on my portfolio.

I'm using a lot. More information and the possibility to built up a portfolio. But it's also kinda buggy.

So, I'm still looking for the perfect solution. Which site or app are you guys using to keep track of your portfolio?

rate on the coinmarketcap is not updated in real time so personally I prefer to use "Trader Tab" an Android based application but this also has deficiency because not all exchanges are there
while to track new altcoin that has been listing in the exchange you can use Sfomo
If you want real time price tracker how about fetching the data from the exchanges itself, coinmarketcap is there for people who want to look at the price and then leave it be not observing the market all day. People who trying to observe the market for a long time need to fetch their own market data.
571  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will banks disappear because of cryptocurrency? on: November 04, 2018, 02:54:30 PM
The bank and cryptocurrency are opponents. The cryptocurrency in the future will strongly disturb a banking system. The cryptocurrency will win.
The fact that both of them have quite the opposite nature is making it kinda true that both are opponents or competition to each other.
However, we'll need to wait and see in the future which will win.
If cryptocurrency could keep up and still offering its "quirks" then maybe there's a slight chance.
572  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Blockchain or Cryptpcurrency? on: November 04, 2018, 02:49:59 PM
Hey guys, there are two different difenitions: Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. A lot of experts say that crypto is going to die soon but blockchain itself is a very useful technology. What do you think are they right? Do you think blockchain can exist without cryptocurrency?

Blockchain is a useful and revolutionary technology, will live and grow long. Blockchain can live alone without any token. Cryptocurrency, along with blockchain and must be created, stored and transmitted on a blockchain network. Many cryptos has no real application at all. Over 90% of coins will die soon but I think that some coins will get more adoption
Blockchain is really useful until it can't catch up anymore with the technology and there'll eventually a system that's more efficient than blockchain but we're nowhere there and if blockchain could be developed continously it will take some time to overtake the rate of blockchain efficiency.
573  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How Binance became world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange on: November 04, 2018, 10:12:36 AM
The Binance exchange is well aware of some shortcomings in the market. And they closed all the shortcomings. It was very clever to create his own stock token. Thus both their own tokens gained value and people in the stock market used it as a fee. Thus, both the stock market and the user was won.

It's not an uncommon practice done by some of exchangers though. Other exchanges usually have created their own token that will benefits the user if they hold it.
The same thing goes for KCS. However there's also many more exchanges that did the same exact thing but just didn't get enough attention because their small user base.
574  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Projects are abusing blockchain technology. on: November 04, 2018, 05:45:19 AM
Abuses are common with the technologies that we have. It made our lives easier but on the other hand it does also have something bad as an effect. This might be is just the same with the blockchain technology. Some ICOs are not even so serious about their project and ended up a failure or maybe worst as a scam. Only good projects should be in the blockchain.
People who have normal mind would easily find out that kind of phishy project instantly and then refuse to proceed further because they know it worth nothing.
That's why when there's a new project it's community to judge and they could freely ask about the suspicion.
575  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What is your favorite way to cash out? on: November 03, 2018, 10:38:10 PM
Hi, everybo dy.  :)I have a plastic card Skrill through it quickly and easily withdraw money. Cool
That's indeed the most convenient way and looks cool too but the withdrawal fee is usually too high that you need to think twice before even withdrawing your money from the local ATM. I used few times and always come to think that the fee is just too high for merely taking my own money.
576  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Stable Token the key to mass adoption? on: November 03, 2018, 10:33:37 PM
Stability can only occur in a balance ecosystem. Fluctuation occurs when it is not. Stable coin pegged to a fiat currency need to be recognized by mass adoption that it serve the same function. Alipay and wepay are both in a way stable coins, issuing a token pegged to rmb where you can only use within their ecosystem. But if the coin is stable, what is the draw to investors and the value added to users, as compared to fiat currency. A coin cannot be both speculative and stable. I believe the only way is through dual token mechanism. What do you think?

PS: we have engineer and come out with our ICO based on this.

If there us any coin that is truly known to be stable, it might not be too good for investors. Such coin even has every likelihood to later be rejected. It might even b given so many titles, like being called a scam coin.
You can lunch your project and we would see how things would play out.
Well there's USDT and TrueUSD people seem totally fine for me even the overall market cap is huge enough to assume that so many people uses stablecoin to reserve their wealth.
The existence of stablecoin honestly really helps a lot. if it can be adopted for payment processor in the future that'd be great.
577  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum 2.0 is coming soon on: November 03, 2018, 08:13:59 AM
Vitalik already announced new new Ethereum 2.0 but the price from it did not increase. Let's wait for succession of events now.
Still announcement and is not implemented yet, what do you expect?. However the main purpose of this new technology implementation is to improve the overall ability of the network, if the price goes up aswell, consider that as additional bonus.
578  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will the governments kill cryptocurrencies on: November 02, 2018, 04:06:33 PM
No way, man. Governments make collaborations with crypto start ups, so they will never kill crypto.
It is blockchain technology, new step in revolution.
crypto is a very good technology because it has many advantages so the government will support it but requires a lot of processes because crypto still has some weaknesses that need to be corrected. Currently there are many fraudulent projects or coins that need to be removed so that crypto will be safer and accepted by many people.
Most of the time it is blockchain that is deemed to be revolutionary. However crypto as a product could indirectly be considered as a result of that more advanced technology and it's not wrong to be said so but just not really right. Talking about fraud, it's everywhere and really hard to be annihilated, the most effective way is proper regulation.
579  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Postponing Listing on the Exchange due bear market conditions on: November 02, 2018, 03:29:28 PM
Now almost all the projects carry lists and do what I think is right. Those projects that went on the stock exchange lost 80-90% of the cost. It is better to wait until the market stops falling and stabilizes.
This mainly happened to those overrated coins that actually have zero utilities but people are still buying it anyway. If the coin is really useful it won't lose its value that easily regardless of the bearish market.
However,ICOs that can't reach cap usually lost its value in an instant though.
580  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: End of ethereum? on: November 02, 2018, 02:59:49 PM
It is not the end of Ethereum, because the whole market is going down and not only this coin. If you have such a logic, you can say, that this is the end of all crypto currencies. But it wouldn't be so smart, because it is just a red market that will change soon.
true, if this condition is considered as the end of ethereum then we have to consider this is the end of all crypto Undecided and i don't think this is the end of anything, this is just a common condition in crypto industry
People are just getting hyped up over something irrelevant. The end of Ethereum will only come when there's a massive banned for blockchain technology or else the internet getting shut down all over the world so there's no more hash power. The value of ETH can't really kill ethereum even if it get down to nearly zero.
