Bitcoin hype maybe getting cold, But mostly i think its because the devs are working way too slow.
The founders are not getting their mind set on the things they should improve on.
There are no "founders" for Bitcoin. And people who write code for Bitcoin are doing just fine. Testing for LN is going full force, and RootStock is making progress as well.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Wow! So much FOMO news on the Ripple XRP token atm. on: March 05, 2018, 04:16:47 AM
Banks don't care about Ripple and don't want to use their coin. They only care about the software that runs it, but they're not going to use Ripple, which defeats any case that could be made for buying into XRP.

Do people really think banks will go with ripple whose devs own half of the supply themselves?
People do, yes.

But it's the same people that thought that BitConnect was legitimate.

Not very. People talk about it but nobody really wants to plunge in apparently.

It's called SegWit... Transactions are faster and cheaper now, so the backlog is smaller.

It is better to invest 250 $ in 10 coins...
It's better to invest into less coins if they are properly research. Investing in 10+ coins is only worth it if you have a lot of time to analyze them.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: KYC of bounty hunters on: March 03, 2018, 05:24:58 PM
Why are we even considering KYC for bounties? I get it its to stop the cheaters, but there are lots of other ways to control this. This KYC thing on crypto is very absurd, reason why we are all gathered here its because we love the idea of being anonymous. We shouldn't encourage nor allow this process it is downright an insult to bitcoin and the cryptocommunity.
It's not to stop cheaters. It's to collect and sell data.

I put most of my money in NEO as my crypto-bank.

This is since NEO pays me a generous 4 to 6 %/year worth in terms of NeoGAS + it is pretty stable and its price is expect to only get stronger into 2018.

ETH is a safe bet, however there is a war brewing against the ETC community making it unstable + any significant improvement on it will be slow due to the already large user-base (demanding backward-compatibility + consensus amongst miners). Also due to its already very high MCAP, the %Gain possible is so much lower than what NEO can easily accomplish (given the same amount of new investors injection of funds).

VeChain will be doing the same soon once the VEN token gets linked to their new "Thor" coupled currency.

There are some ppl who are speculating on NeoGAS as a much better buy in the shorter term than NEO, as the demand for GAS will skyrocket as more NEO-based ICO pops up; while NEO's value (the stock issued that generates GAS) will increase significant as the amount in circulation reaches its max supply.

Also I do not trust the WAVEs team, and had sold all my waves coins after finding out that they have plagiarized code from the super hardworking and capable Cardano team of PhDs w/o even crediting them. Also the very need of Wave's team to use other team's codes do not speak well of their own ability to innovate and competence IMO.
Source to the plagiarizing allegation? Waves has been around far longer than Cardano so I'd be surprised if that was true. Not that it would be very relevant.

with $2500 you can buy waves and hold for long term period
i believe waves will be the next eth, even somebody said waves will replace eth
but you should do a research by yourself first before decided to invest in waves

This could actually happen if you compare fundamentals.

We're already past the point where the blockchain can be stopped. It's now just a matter of time until it becomes a mainstream technology.

If DeepOnion is a scam why some people are millionaires now? This is the best privacy coin today, DeepOnion is legit, Well organized and have a best planned not only about the project, but also to their members in the community, If you don't believe me come and join us today and you'll see how strong and loyal we are
What kind of argument is that? You can scam people and become a millionaire that way. Doesn't mean it's not a scam. And doesn't mean you won't go to jail like the BitConnect goons are about to.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum, Ripple or Litecoin? on: March 02, 2018, 12:47:17 AM
Ripple is a centralized shitcoin. The dev team holds most of the supply and has full control over everything. They say that they won't abuse that power, but we all know how that works out in reality. They're basically a bank... with monopoly money.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: LTC or Eth as payment solution on: February 28, 2018, 10:37:54 AM
Ethereum is definitely my favorite coin overall , but it doesn't look like it's ultimately going to be an ideal payment solution.  Something cheaper and more efficient is going to be needed for that purpose.
Such as Lightning Network.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: LTC or Eth as payment solution on: February 28, 2018, 10:28:58 AM
As a payment solution for businesses, vendors and services which one of these coins is more suitable? Litecoin or Ethereum ?
Because bitcoin is not good especially because of high fees and slow transactions in smaller payments.

Which one is better and why?
Litecoin is more efficient for payments. Ethereum's forte are tokens and smart contracts. But that will change in the future as well with Bitcoin and Litecoin getting smart contracts of their own.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why is DOGECOIN pronounced as DODGE-COIN and not DOG-GIE COIN? on: February 28, 2018, 10:27:37 AM
Just wondering.

I think the latter makes a lot more sense, and much cuter.
Because it doesn't represent the word "doggie". It's a meme, spelt doge as opposed to dog, which turns the g soft.

As some others have pointed out, a "Ponzi scheme", by definition, requires initial monetary investment, which is then used to pay the first investors, so those entering last are burned.  No initial investment, other than a little typing was required.  If you're going to call DO a scam, at least be more accurate.

There hasn't been a mandatory upgrade of the wallet in quite a long time.  You may still compile the code from GitHub and have a working wallet.  Later, non-mandatory, upgrades to the wallet, after the introduction of DeepVault are closed to review, however if you do not wish to use that proprietary DeepVault, then, yes, the code is open source.  I think I've used DeepVault once, not a feature I really need, so, if I wanted to simply stake or hold Onion, I could use the open source, if I cared to compile it myself, from GitHub.

I dislike misinformation being spread, and I would like to know if anything I've typed is factually inaccurate.  Once I investigate your claim, I'll happily correct myself.  Now, just for arguments sake, making statements like, "I feel DO is a scam...." is not something I'd even entertain, your feelings have nothing to do with it, neither do mine.  What I want to know is, can you compile a functional wallet from open source for DeepOnion?  Yes, you can.  Therefore it is effectively open source.  Was a monetary / fiat investment required to initially join the "modified airdrop"?  No, there was not, I was here at the beginning.  A minimum is required now, with, nine, I think, rounds left to go, so, break out your Funk and Wagnall's but that fails the definition of a "Ponzi scheme".

Closed versus open source and "Ponzi scheme" seem to be the arguments thrown around the most, and they appear invalid.
Seems like you made a valid point here.

A Ponzi scheme doesn't require any monetary investment, it's a scheme whereby value is transferred to the creators of said scheme.

When talking about ponzi's in crypto, it takes on a whole different meaning due to the natural creation process of crypto, being creating from mere code, essentially out of nothing, based only on trust.

And to every person who's entering DeepOnion after their "17th airdrop" you've have entered into this ponzi scheme unknowingly (you have invested real money into it, or some serious hours of time), and you're actively marketing the coin to acquire more value to your investment, welcome to the free-coin-prymaid-scheme.

The entire operation is Ingenious, and their marketing/community and coin all coupled together, is virtually unparalleled. But, the markets say otherwise, despite countless hours of marketing, the coin itself remains insignificant, with meager volumes and even a more meager mcap. This ultimately is the biggest tell in what people think about this coin.

DeepOnion will not be the last coin to implement "The Onion scheme" in crypto, it's only the beginning.

Consequences for these levels of corruption will be dealt down on the creators/team of DO, through government intervention or karma. There are countless stories to be told, by former individuals who've seen the insides of the entire process, and it isn't pretty. DO could of easily been one of the best coins to launch, but the morons behind the scene's lack all: vision, experience, knowledge and ultimately the ability to understand criticism/feedback.

Does this resemble some process to you?

Anybody who still doesn't get it after this explanation and all the other red flags that have been raised can't be helped.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Would you choose stress free investment on: February 28, 2018, 01:56:28 AM
After a while here in the forum I read a lot of members worrying about there crypto investment/trade. I would rather choose a stable and highly trustworthy altcoins to invest for the long time rather than chasing those coins thru trading. I find it super stressful to read those people losing large amount of their hard earn money.
Crypto isn't "stable" at all, that's why there are so many opportunities... and risks.

If you know how to read the markets you can make a killing. If you don't you'll lose money. It takes time, effort and discipline to get good at investing and trading, and most people give up very early.

Only like 1-10% survive for a few years, and barely 1% is successful at making a living and building wealth.
This is true not only for financial markets, but for every discipline. I don't know where the rule comes from, but the majority of people never make it far...

If you want to belong to the 1% you'll have to work hard at it. Read books about financial analysis if you don't know how to do this on your own. That can give you an idea of what to look out for.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Can I name my coin "Bitcoin XXX"? on: February 25, 2018, 10:56:56 PM
You can do whatever you want, but every coin that is named Bitcoin xxx, Ethereum xxx, or anything like that is by default a shit coin that is trying to piggy back.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Top Privacy Coins on: February 25, 2018, 10:55:23 PM
Which are your favourite privacy coins?


Which essential features of a privacy based currency have your picks implemented?


is the Best and reason is its Handled from telegram and its not only privacy coin but it is messenger based. BITSUM use CRYPTONIGHT Algo.
 BITSUM Have High Degree of Confidentiality in Transactions.All your Transaction will Be Private and Secure, Send BITSUM Anywhere in the World.
How exactly are you supposed to retain privacy when using a messenger that is linked to mobile phone numbers...?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: In which coins to invest my $2500? Ethereum, NEO, Bitcoin Cash, Gas, or Waves? on: February 25, 2018, 10:53:47 PM
Avoid BCash. If we were in regulated markets the people behind BCash would be going to jail for market manipulation and collusion.

Investing in NEO over Gas seems senseless, since you can gain Gas by staking NEO. Waves has the highest potential short-term multiplier, but nobody knows if it will catch on or not right now. Ethereum is the go to for ICOs, at least currently, so it at least shouldn't lose your money (although that is always a possibility).

In general, do your own research and be careful whenever somebody tells you what to do with your money. They're probably trying to exploit your lack of knowledge in one way or another.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: WARNING DeepOnion is a SCAM, proof inside! on: February 25, 2018, 10:49:47 PM
DeepOnion does not promise any high returns, 4% a week is even less than other coins with similar airdrops offer. Price is also not guaranteed to always go up.
Stop using a term "Ponzi", don't make a fool of yourself. The post that is literally above yours also shows why this is wrong.
And if you are doing it intentionally to piss holders off then you are a jerk Smiley
I wonder who is more credible. An ad hominem fool, or somebody who points out the obvious without any regard for personal profit.
