Seems like bullshit to me, and even if this strategy were to work, the casinos will now know about it and this'll likely be fixed very soon. There's no reason why anyone would purposefully leak a method that makes them money unless it either doesn't work or something is wrong with it already.

If by chance someone hasn't noticed yet or didn't read all the way through, this strategy's only been used by the person in the article in physical casinos.

I'm warning you about the Rock Trading. Don't trust them.

Check this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4975753.0


 I wanna say two things one you have bumped the dead thread available in this forum which does not need your effort at all. Along with that if you have quieres or clarification you may take that to op via pm.
This can be partially considered as pm only.
@op lock it please to avoid the spams at all.
I don't see anything wrong with this, when what Coinfan posted was legitimate information against Rock Trading. This is perfectly relevant information, and by posting here, there won't be more people facing the same problems going onto the site. I generally don't like necroposting either, but in this circumstance it seems fine to me.

Itís possible, but some mobile devices have pretty weak CPUs, and excessive processor usage may make certain phones and mobile devices crash and/or overheat. If the gameís more basic and doesnít use as much processing power, this could mean potentially more room for mining to take place; either way, itíll take tuning on individual devices to ensure system stability and optimal mining performance. I could see this potentially being successful on free games.

Itíd be great if the DCR could mine BTC, but it doesnít as it hashes the Blake14R algorithm, and wattage, hashrate and miner pricing varies from miner to miner, and just because a chip can hash at a certain speed on one alto doesnít mean that it can do the same on another. Itíd be great if the S9 could mine Ethereum at 14TH, but it canít. Weíll eventually see more Scrypt miners come up if mining companies feel the profitability of the algo is good enough, and their chips have a good enough increase in efficiency to make it profitable to make new miners.

Seems to me the best you can do at this moment is either wait or request Bitfinex to possibly stop the wire transfer process, and perhaps use another exchange or service to get funds wired to your account. Seems like they really canít do anything about this; consider a P2P transaction if you still want to get a bank wire. The funds likely still havenít moved yet, so there shouldnít be too many issues if you want to get your funds back.
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: when will the crypto market revive strong on: September 19, 2018, 11:20:14 PM
It's really anyone's guess at this point, but there's just been so much bearish news in this bear market that most price movements upwards have been crushed, like exchange hacks (a Japanese exchange was recently compromised according to this tweet). I can only really see a breakout in the near future if extremely bullish news comes out.

I usually browse Reddit for some of my Bitcoin news, but I've had to stop because half of the bitcoin reddit sub that I browse regularly is just people talking about how prices could be worse and/or memes. Seems everyone's waiting out the storm at this point, but it's just annoying that a sub can be all memes when there's no bullish news because people only upvote bullish news and downvote bearish news. Oh well.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Taking a break from gambling on: September 19, 2018, 11:02:54 PM
Gambling's entertainment in the end, and if you're ever tired of anything in general, taking a break is a great idea, and you might even find a new hobby you enjoy in the meantime. In the past when I got tired of gambling, I tried playing video games like Counter-Strike or PUBG, and I was able to stop gambling relatively easy as I was always interested in those games. It's really a great test of your self-control when you're taking a break from gambling as well; simply come back when you feel ready, and you'll be alright.
That would be very easy for someone who sees gambling as an entertainment, truth be told, a lot of people tend to see it as a way to make money and then out of frustration and desperation, they get so engrossed and could not help the impulses as they strike. Taking a break from gambling is for someone who simply is still in control of himself and certainly is not seeing gambling as a way to quickly make money asides from entertainment, and knowing that he is using his hours to do something that is not really bring much for him, he should rather channel those hours into more productive things.
That's exactly why you should get help for those that you see are deep into gambling and can't get out. I've done this before for friends, and I've successfully helped people get out of a gambling addiction. Obviously not everyone who needs help will get it, but you're really doing an addicted gambler a favor by helping such a person to get help. I assume most people here have the self-control and think rationally enough to not be addicted to gambling, and thus capable of stopping gambling when necessary.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: i want to build a cpu on: September 19, 2018, 10:30:11 PM
One problem you will also find with the Threadripper CPUs is that you'll also have to get an X399 CPU to run them, and those are currently pretty expensive- the cheapest ones I can find on eBay are used and/or open box, and they're going for $270-300. I'd rather just go for a few CPUs and a cheaper motherboard, perhaps running a budget Skylake CPU to control the GPUs. Either way, you're not going to make a lot after electrical costs if you don't have free electricity, and it is always possible to just buy and hold crypto. It isn't a terrible idea, especially when coin prices are as low as they are right now.
9  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: How do you market effectively in a bear market (advice needed) on: September 19, 2018, 10:23:05 PM
I absolutely agree with what figment's just said. The price of all crypto has been plunging for the last few months, scam ICOs as well as government warnings have eroded investor confidence, and just the fact that we're in a bear market dissuades investors from investing into an ICO. You may very well have a viable idea that has a use, but it's simply not a great time to be advertising ICOs at this point in time.
10  Economy / Web Wallets / Re: SIGNING MESSAGES ON BLOCKCHAIN.INFO on: September 19, 2018, 05:50:57 PM
If youíre importing your seeds, I highly suggest doing so on a new, fresh PC with a wallet such as Electrum installed. Importing seeds and private keys on a computer with other things on it could potentially be risky, even if you have a good antivirus and you have good downloading habits. It does not ever hurt to be too risky with anything related to BTC, especially if you store funds on a wallet.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: My profitability on GPUs on: September 19, 2018, 05:37:22 PM
My friend is still making $2 a day on each card but he has really low electricity prices.  If you don't have cheap electricity you should sell all your gear and just buy the coins.
I assume your friendís mining a pretty obscure coin, as even before electrical costs I donít see any cards breaking $2 per day on either Whattomine or Nicehash (even the Titan V on Nicehash doesnít break $1.50 daily before electrical costs). I still do agree that itís better to simply buy coins right now, though, as mining at current rates isnít too profitable, and itís risky to gamble on mining a low-difficulty coin and hoping prices go up on it.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: How She ROIíd Her Mining Rig in 8 Weeks in a Bear Market on: September 19, 2018, 05:29:25 PM
Well I actually ROI'd a GPU in less than 6 hours when the ZEC launches back in Nov 2016.

Back then the price was crazy high on Poloniex, basically one ZEC was worth more than one BTC and if you were on an actual pool that paid you could of been one of the first few deposits and made crazy gains for almost no work.

The issue with this is that we don't see these gains everyday. It was basically pure luck and it won't help you out in the future.

Haha I did same.  I had 30 x 6 card machines at the time and hit zec as soon as it went live and sold it as soon as it hit my account.  Man those were the days...,  People were FOMO hard on Zec - Supply and Demand baby, it's a beautiful thing.
I also remember those days, but I happened to be unlucky and couldnít find a working pool that processed withdrawals in time as a lot of pools either delayed withdrawals or didnít let you withdraw immediately at all, so I didnít make nearly as much as you guys did. Still broke even after a while on a six card rig, which was the only GPU rig I had back then. A bit better than the gambling some people do today with mining an extremely low difficulty coin and hoping it goes up in the future, but such a situation likely wonít ever happen again.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Reason why 98% of sports bettors lose money long term... on: September 19, 2018, 05:24:01 PM
People do think sports betting is any different than stuff like dice. It is not, the odds are still there and favoring the house, if you think that you can win for a long term in any sort of gambling then you are VERY wrong.

There will be days when the team that suppose to win will win which means you make a small win however when you bet on an underdog you may lose or even if you bet on the team that suppose to win you will still lose sometimes. Which all comes down to house edge, there is house edge in dice and there are "odds" in sports which is basically house edge as well, you cannot win on long term.

Even many gambling houses are claiming that their sport betting platform is working as per the concepts of p2p, they are not actually in real time. This the core reason why we do get different results compared when we do bet with our colleagues in real life.
I absolutely agree. This is also why if youíre relying on using tipsters to make bets, the win rate doesnít necessarily matter, as you donít get nearly as much money from betting on a favorite team. Most people can attain a win rate of at least 70% just betting on a favored team to win, so when I choose to use a tipster, I look at some individual bets that theyíve done in the past to get an idea of how good they actually are.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: My profitability on GPUs on: September 19, 2018, 12:36:18 AM
If you're asking us what to mine, using a tool such as Nicehash that automatically switches between the algorithm people are paying most for, or a site such as Whattomine will do the job. It's extremely simple to do either of these things, and nobody's going to tell you exactly what coins are the most profitable. It's up to you to figure that out.
15  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Increased Number of Scammers on: September 18, 2018, 11:06:11 PM
I find that using common sense and using your brain usually helps you steer clear of any potential scams out there. For example, if anything's promising returns of any sort, chances are what you're being offered is a scam. If it's too good to be true, it definitely is, and there's always strings attached.

ICOs are inherently risky, and things have only gotten worse over the years as ICOs have exploded in numbers. The only ICO I've ever become involved in and invested in was Iconomi, and I've never taken a look at any ICOs since. Most ICO threads are filled with useless spam, and the ICOs themselves are often horribly managed.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: What is the highest lost you have made as gambler? on: September 18, 2018, 10:06:10 PM
I lost around $500 betting on a CS:GO match where one team made a comeback from a seemingly impossible scoreline and won in overtime (something like 15-6 to 15-19), though I soon recovered all my funds and a bit extra after betting on other matches right after that one. I've got a net profit in CS:GO betting, though I don't bet nearly as much as I used to about two years ago, but I still like to bet in increments of $25 or $50.
17  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Lending websites suggestions? on: September 18, 2018, 09:57:18 PM
I know some people have successfully made money lending to exchanges for those trading on margin on sites such as Bitfinex, and the rates seem relatively good and the risks seem in line with what you'd expect from lending. I'd link a page, but it doesn't seem like there's a specific page for Bitfinex's lending page anywhere that I can find.

Dollars is what nets you the proper interest rates. Everyone wants to get interest on their crypto which usually mean the rates are piddling. Personally I would definitely not risk another haircut for a pitiful return there.

I agree, and there's definitely risk involved in lending to any sort of organization in crypto, where you can easily get burned if the organization or site decides to run off with your money, but it's yet another option for making a bit of money through interest. I'm personally keeping away from Bitfinex with all the news about Tether for now.

If anyone here does decide to lend, only lend what you can afford to lose, just like you're trading or gambling. Another alternative to lending websites would be lending to users here, but it's helpful to have reputation beforehand if you choose to go down that route.

19  Economy / Goods / Re: I made a marketplace for you to buy and sell goods for cryptocurrency. on: September 18, 2018, 01:41:31 AM
I believe the error is because the hyperlink is appending https:// onto the link that already has https appended onto it.

As for the website itself, it's very navigable on mobile, which I find fantastic, and the layout of the site overall is great. Good touch with the livechat at the bottom of the page, relatively unobtrusive there.

For the fee comparison, I feel you should add other competing online marketplaces such as Bitify to the mix to give users a real sense of the savings that could be had on your platform.

One last thing- what advantages do you guys have over a similar online cryptocurrency like OpenBazaar that accepts multiple cryptocurrencies and also has no fees? Why should I move from another platform to yours?

I ordered a few 1070s from Nvidia's official store store a month back and I can confirm the thing with payments. I used my PayPal Balance and the payment was charged immediately, but with credit cards they're charged on shipping. You'll be charged once the order's going out, just be patient and wait 'till that happens.
