1  Economy / Economics / Re: Stance on bitcoin's effect towards the Global Economy on: January 17, 2020, 02:58:56 PM

I think most will agree that Bitcoin is not the ultimate solution to the economic problems that exist in the world today, it's just one alternative that is offered to anyone who wants to accept it. There is no global recession at the moment, some countries are experiencing bigger, some minor problems, but we are still holding ourselves above the surface of the water, although the world may sink at any time. As always, everything will depend on the great powers of the world, above all I mean the USA, UK, China, Russia, Japan which will be the main indicators in which direction the world is going. If the big ones start to fall, they will drag the others behind them, there is no doubt about that.

As for World War III, I personally think that everyone is trying not to make it happen because, given today's weapons, the First and Second World War would seem like a slightly larger firework. Nuclear, chemical and biological weapons can very easily send us back to the Stone Age, and therefore I believe that reason will prevail.

Crypto, and above all I mean BTC is quite a stranger in the global recession, although it originated at the beginning of one of them in 2009. The perception that people have about BTC is mainly as a store of value, so as such it would have its place in those assets that serve as a hedge against the loss of value of national fiat currencies, stocks, real estate. However, after only 10 years, I would say that we are in the phase of an experiment that is going on pretty well, notwithstanding the opinion that he had already shown failure (in case of adoption, price, high fees, a terrible effect on the environment) and other things that are cited as bad features.

Any known issues that have happened in the past to users who cleared their cache?

Clearing the cache is an old trick used even on Ledger Chrome App, and this option is mostly used when the balance of the wallet is incorrect. When you clear cache, the app is forced to resync and download all data again. It's about the same thing that can be done in Electrum (though not the simplest way) by deleting blockchain headers, and that force Electrum to download the same file again.

I don't think this procedure can do any harm to the user in any way, it's a pretty harmless process.

Just deleting posts is solving nothing in this case, because even if posts are deleted he/she just create new ones (10+ yesterday) and 1 so far today. This is a user with 0 value for the forum, and with the previous warning and a temporary ban, if there is no change, a permanent ban would be the only solution.

If I'm not mistaken, only global moderators/admins can ban users.

Newcomers often skip learning the fundamentals and just believe everything they read on news sites, blogs and from other users, and sooner or later it will bite them in the ass.

Unfortunately, most choose the wrong path, which generally involves quick and easy earnings, which again leads in the wrong direction when it comes to this forum (bounty campaigns). After realizing that nothing is there, some really go in another direction, which is again like a minefield because they are awaited by the promises of mining, Ponzi/MLM schemes and miraculous algorithms that make incredible profits overnight by trading with crypto.

I hope it does drop to $3,000. I'm a long term holder, so it would give me the chance to pick up a load more. Smiley

There's nothing wrong with hope, but even though BTC is unpredictable, I personally don't expect such a big drop in the year of halving. I know this might be an opportunity for some to buy even more cheap BTC, but all the analysis I've seen so far suggests that the time of the bulls is coming.

I guess I'm allowed to post here. IMO everybody has their own say but your right if were going to make such statement needs to be back up by reasonable explanation why they come up with such prediction but if not he is just babbling and creating fud at all.

The rule is very clear, I think that any question of this type is superfluous. Regarding hyperlink, it is true I link page of the thread where my post is, but it was not open on the selected post. Now it is fixed, thanks for the warning.

mk4&NeuroticFish, most beginners will believe everything they can if they see a Hero or Legendary ranks, but this is a problem that goes beyond this forum, people in high positions are not necessarily good people. I too can wake up tomorrow with some crazy idea that something bad is going to happen to BTC, but I certainly won't share it in the forum based on just my feelings.

Anyone who starts thinking about BTC, (ordinary investment or trading) should invest time in acquiring knowledge that is publicly available, then they will be able to decide what is good or bad, what is good and what is bad intent.
6  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Windows 7 stopped product supports. Please upgrade your Windows and wallets ASAP on: January 17, 2020, 11:06:46 AM
I don't know Electrum already knew about that announcement from Microsoft, but I think they will react to this news ASAP.
In the meantime, it is good for your fund by self-protect it with Windows upgrades to Windows 10.

React in what way exactly, stopping support for new versions of the Electrum on the W7? I think this is not a likely option, Electrum can still work without problem on W7, and that update you mention is there for years.

Any crypto wallet and that includes even hardware wallets can be compromised in some way, even on the safest operating system. Install Linux, download Electrum, verify the signature and then save seed to your email or any other inappropriate way and you are likely to be hacked. In most cases, it's not the problem of what you use, but the way you use it.

Microsoft still offers a free update for the W7/8 to W10, and I think this is the best way to update since a user can keep all files/programs. However, it is important that you read all the instructions and warnings before proceeding.

7  Other / Off-topic / Re: your internet costs and income on: January 16, 2020, 04:25:38 PM

My internet costs are fixed every month (if we are talking about home internet), and let's say that they are not too expensive considering it is a flat internet (no data limit), and that speed is around 40 Mbps. The price for that internet and fix phone is around 20 EUR per month. Considering that I spend a lot of time online, I find this price very good and currently it does not represent a big expense to me in my home budget.

I know that internet prices are different, and some countries like Cuba have very expensive and limited internet so your question makes sense. But I still think that the majority still pays too expensive and limited data + slow internet. This is certainly one of the most significant obstacles to a major BTC adaptation, as well as the fact that almost half of the world's population has no access to the internet. Welcome to the 21st Century Sad

I have Windows 10. Their earlier Ledger Live version had a sync issue and used to crash in between a transaction and the problem happens now too but less often since I updated it.

I personally don't use LL because Electrum is all I need for now, but as far as I can see on Ledger Reddit, back a few months and maybe a year, a lot of people complain that their LL is very unstable and crashing o W10. At the same time, it works for some without any problems, even on the W7 - which gives the impression that it's not just the OS in general, but the combination of OS and PC hardware. For example, I can not run LL on W7, it crushes in just few seconds, and one user on the forum is made a firmware update on the same OS with some small problems.

What you can try to do is to uninstall Ledger Live/delete his folder, sometimes old and new files can create problems, and clean installation may be helpful.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Newbies, turn on the brain - it's not all true if it's in the forum! on: January 16, 2020, 03:30:41 PM
Given the confusion that prevails among beginners and their susceptibility to trust high-ranking users very easily, I would like to warn them that there are those who take advantage of their position for some personal reasons.

The first reason is simple, they just don't like BTC for some reason and are trying to spread FUD ( fear, uncertainty and doubt), predicting the imminent death of BTC. The reasons they cite are mainly insufficient adaptation, high fees, the enormous environmental impact of BTC mining, and that BTC has failed to become a major global currency in 10 years, as if it is something that could happen in such a short period.

Second reason is that they promote something better than BTC (in signature/avatar) and they want to convince you that there are better coins where you will get rich overnight. Learn to recognize such people, and do not be fooled so easily - it is always easy to fight against lies and deception with facts.

I will list two users who predict that BTC will drop to $3000+ (in the next 5 months) or to $2000 at the end of this year. Everyone has the right to his opinion, but there must be some reason on which it is based.

Dont let them fool you. We will see a NEW BOTTOM. Maybe BTC at 3400$ again? is an obvious example of how one tries to manipulate some facts, all for the purpose of promoting referral link (now removed), and some magical algorithm that gives you over 1000% ROI (Return on Investment) in 6 months. Unfortunately, some reward such posts with merits which just shows that they don't see in what context the whole thing is set.

it will be a disastrous year, with a decrease below $ 4,000 or $ 2000 by the end of the year. is something that amazes me even more, since it is a Legendary member from CM signature campaign. Although I have asked him several times why he has such an opinion, so far I have not received an answer.

When it comes to BTC everything is possible, but still, we are in a year of halving that has always been a positive year in the past, of course in terms of price increases. This kind of speculation should never be crucial when thinking about BTC.

Please note that this is not a discussion about the price (for that use Speculation board), but rather that one should not blindly believe everything posted on the forum, no matter who the author is.

The good thing is that the problem was solved by itself, but the question is whether the problem will recur in the future. It may be just something completely harmless from a technical point of view, but it's also the first sign that the screen is starting to show the first signs of some kind of damage. If you were able to record that error, you can contact Ledger support, in most cases the replacement of the device is free. Something similar happened in this case.

On what OS are you using Ledger Live? W7 is known to do such problems, but W10 or Linux should work without problems. What you can try is uninstall Ledger Live, delete his folder with all files (C:\Users%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Ledger Live) and install the latest version from Ledger.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why people debate so much about BTC value? on: January 16, 2020, 11:44:56 AM

If you just look at this forum, most still think about how the price will one day jump high enough to make them rich. In the end, it all comes down to money and profit, Bitcoin is no exception, no matter what idea Satoshi Nakamoto had when creating it. I do not think it is realistic for BTC to replace the fiat completely, at least not in the near future. It is not only a technical matter, but it is also a human habit to leave most of the decisions in their lives to others, and in the case of finance, we are accustomed to having banks play a leading role.

Talking to people about owning BTC means being your own bank does not fall to fertile ground, because very few people want to take on that responsibility. Swimming downstream is always a lot easier than fighting the power of the river and swimming upstream.

Without the factor of value in the whole story hardly BTC would be interesting to people. It is true that 1 BTC is always 1 BTC, but it is impossible for people to get out of their heads the value of that 1 BTC. I've been tracking BTC since it was less than $200, and I can't escape the fact that it's worth 40 times more today.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Re: Ledger Nano X vs. Nano S on: January 16, 2020, 11:01:19 AM
The consensus around here definitely leans in favor of the Nano S. I'm still a bit torn, considering the bigger screen and iOS support.

I believe that price is a crucial factor influencing this opinion and the very fact that X&S does not make much difference when considering the basic functions. Both devices have as their main function complete protection and isolation of the private keys, and both devices do the same in the same way. If you look at things from that angle alone, the Nano S is a logical choice.

In my opinion, one of the most important advantages of Nano X is its significantly larger storage, which will allow further development in the future. S model is far more limited in this regard, what I took into consideration when buying model X.

It's always been fascinating to see people buying expensive smartphones for $500+, but at the same time, they consider hardware wallets that cost less than $100 an expensive investment.

He's right though.

I did not open this thread to discuss about Bitcoin Discussion board, which is without any doubt turned into a haven for shitposters. I guess I am also consider one of them since I post there from time to time.

Even after all this I think he had a valid point that Bitcoin should not be promoted as investment because of upcoming halving time, rather it should be seen as an medium of digital currency exchange. I even see he didn't pointed the last comment to you specifically as per the PM. Although it was his thread and he could lock it whenever he wants, you can always start a REE. if you want to continue the discussion.

I don't understand the purpose of this thread anyways, there are more rude peoples than him around here.

One more who think it is about what Bitcoin is/or is halving important or not, your comment is completely missed, why are you commenting if you can't understand what it is about?


Tag someone because of this? Well, someone would crucify me upside down if I did that, this is not for tagging.

I just want to show who is person behind that name, but considering that I see how others thinks it is better to lock this down before I get tag for endangering freedom of expression or posting private messages.
14  Economy / Reputation / Bitcoin_bullish reputation thread. on: January 15, 2020, 03:55:01 PM
User Bitcoin_bullish is recently open thread and after discussion did not go in the direction he obviously wanted, thread is locked and he call all of us morons/idiots:

You have no idea what you are talking about and after reading all these shitposts especially yours that begins with "hahahaha" it is obvious that I'm wasting my time with morons. I lock this post right now and I will stop wasting my time with idiots like you. There is no value or anything of importance in your comment or 90% of the posts that I read rom arrogant morons like you and to be honest most older members like yourself are plain stupid and their greed and lack of rational thinking is forcing every new member out of bitcointalk. Keep posting your bullshit.

When I asked him on PM why he thought I was a moron idiot he was very rude and accused me of having multiple accounts with whom I abuse signature campaigns and merit system. I can proudly say that I only have one account in this forum, if anyone thinks otherwise let them publicly prove it.

I must emphasize that I did not find myself particularly offended by this method of communication and that this thread should only serve as a proof of what kind of a member he is and what he thinks about the users of this forum.

This is PM he sends me, after which he blocked me:

First of all I didn't answer to you, but to another person. But since you got so agitated it is almost certain that this other account is yours as well. I bet you have even more and exploit signatures just as your friends are and pass merit with each other for shitposts like this one. On topic you were disrespectful and you've got the answer you deserve. The reasons are exactly what I've typed in my last post. You are also ignored from now on, and I won't be spenting any more time on this toxic forum. All that I have seen here are morons exactly just like you. Instead of winning you should be happy for getting undeserved attention. Fuck off Lucius/joinfree and I'm happy I won't be seeing your shitty posts again.

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Reload account while transaction on: January 15, 2020, 03:01:53 PM
But you say "transaction didn't start yet", so if coins have not been sent yet you can't see anything in your wallet. Can you confirm that there is a transaction at the place where you purchased the BTC? If BTC is sent to the blockchain, your wallet should immediately register it as an unconfirmed transaction, but only if a wallet is sync/you have access to the internet.

I know from the past posts that this wallet sometimes has problems with synchronization, we have dedicated board for Mycelium.

I did not ask you did you create more than one account in your wallet? I never use this wallet, but to see a balance of the account, you need to be in that account.
16  Economy / Services / Re: Need some people who can do some clicks pay with bitcoin on: January 15, 2020, 02:52:52 PM
Guys and girls, before you ask "what is this about" think for a moment and read OP. The task probably consists of clicking on the PTC (paid to click sites) on a daily basis, and OP will send you his ref link on PM. Then you will click every day and make OP some profit, and he will share some % of that with you.

I doubt it is about earnings that can satisfy even those from third world countries, and if OP will pay you directly it will only create a lot of dust transaction -  means you will need to pay a high fee to move those coins. Micro earnings and direct payments is not something where anyone can profit.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Reload account while transaction on: January 15, 2020, 02:38:54 PM
I do not see problem in the fact that you reload your account and you see different receive address, your old address is still part of your wallet and you will see a transaction in your wallet.

Mycelium is HD wallet, and that means you have seed words - this is the most important thing for you since this is your backup. In case anything bad happens to your phone or just wallet, you can use seed words for a full recovery.

Too bad I missed those Black Friday deals.

You definitely missed a good discount for Black Friday (last day they give 35%). Some have already written to you about the benefits of Nano X, and there's not much to add. What I, as the owner of the Nano S and Nano X, can say is that it makes sense to buy a Nano X if you consider that it is a new device with a lot more inertial memory than the S model and that Ledger is likely to base further development on this model.

Don't get me wrong, the Nano S is a pretty good device and serves a purpose, and in the end, it all depends on how much money you want to invest in the safety of your coins.

This is a small review of my Nano X : Ledger Nano X - Review of the package.
19  Economy / Speculation / Re: Dont let them fool you. We will see a NEW BOTTOM. Maybe BTC at 3400$ again? on: January 15, 2020, 11:52:32 AM

I'll say it again, you're using the forum as if you started using it only yesterday, so look at what your post looks like, you call yourself an academically educated person?

these thread was about BTC, so focus on the matter and avoid speaking about others projects I work for. YOU were the only onw who mentioned it, and I don't want this to see any kidn of promotion.

Why do you consider people fools who can't read between the lines? You start this thread to promote some shitty exchange you work, and by creating clickbait article about some new bottom for which there is no justification in any analysis, and everything actually comes from your head. I ask you again what you will do if what you speculation does not happen in 5 months? Same as John McAfee do, say that it was only joke, or you say "in next 5 months"?

you talk too much about adoption.. the fact is that this is only in your dreams, I challenge you to go out to the street and ask the first 100 people you see about how much BTC they own. Then come back and share your results. Do it.. stop talking and prove I am wrong.

I only respond to your questions, and you are trying to say BTC is doing so badly in all possible fields. People's knowledge of BTC is different in different countries, what does it matter now how much one owns or does not own something? BTC is only 10 years old, and by some research 0.5% to max 1%, the world population is somehow involved with this relatively new technology. Asking 100 people about BTC will not change anything, even if all 100 say they never hear about BTC.

MAybe you didnt realize what exponential level of difficulty means. Once upon a time i read an article about BTC mining where it was stated that it would take around 140 years to mine the remaining coins. If now there are around 18.1 M. coins circulating, and took 10 years to mine them, can you imagine how much will increase the difficulty if we need 140 years to mine the remaining 13% of supply? Now the question is.. are there other ways to verify blockchain transactions? yes.. that is all. BTC uses renewable sources? don't care.. this energy should be used for something else, while there are other ways to verify transactions with lower cost.
I don't care about other wastes of eletricity form any other industry,.. at least me, i try to do the less harm to the environment.. no waste of electricity/water, try to recicle,..

Last BTC should be mined around 2140, but 99% will be mined by 2032 and that 1% or 210 000 BTC will left for the next 100 years. Your idea that BTC is in any way an environmental threat makes no sense, and I really don't understand why it doesn't matter to you that the vast majority of the energy used for mining is coming comes from renewable energy sources, most from hydropower. During the rainy seasons, there is a huge surplus of electricity in China that miners are using for mining.

Your thinking about conserving the environment and saving electricity is at least weird. Do not care about other industry who is destroying the planet, but you have a big problem that BTC is using 0.2% of total world electricity production?

Once again, you have a big problem.. when you don't have a good argument, you try to add discussion regarding something else. Yobit is a shady scam like hell, and sooner or later will probably make an exit scma, like did IDAX short time ago.

Can you read what you post? My reply on yobit has come from your : "I claimed that people promoting Yobit in signature, were really not aware of what they were doing (working for cmc i received TONS of complaints against the exchange)." Who is redirecting conversation in another direction?
You really look ridiculous and pathetic with all these spins trying to prove something, you just dig deeper into something that is just a product of your mind, without any real basis.

My english is not very good, but I thing is clear enough and you have issues reading my words. I just said that i will NOT call you supporter of all that shit, just because of promoting a mixing service in your signature. I can't make an statement of something I don't know, like you did and keep on doing.. claiming with absolute ignorance about what is all about.
About the referal link, this was already handled and apologized.. thinking I will write a so long and ellaborated post to promote a referal, means you are absolutely biased, angry or have any other kind of problem.
My opium is reality.

My English is far from excellent, but I understand perfectly what you are writing, I just don't understand why there is so much negativity you want to pass on to others under the guise of some kind of warning that new bottom is coming. I bet only you can say that my posting is based on something I do not know, despite you considering me ignorant and supporter of terrorism, drug trafficking, and other bad things. Mixers have a purpose, but not only for that you think - that this is the case not a single one would no longer exist. Bad coins can be tracked and freezed before they even come to mixer.
20  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Re: ALL LEDGER Prodicts now with 20% discount code on: January 15, 2020, 10:49:50 AM
That's what you register when you buy something right? Where you get e-mailed with the confirmation of the order, updates, etc.? I checked mine but I didn't get one.

Yes, I get info on that e-mail. During the purchase process, they ask if you would like to receive notifications, promotions, and you may have declined the offer. Have you checked the spam folder? Some of the e-mails from Ledger in my case (Gmail) for some reason end up in the spam folder.

It is possible that not all buyers received this offer, I bought the Nano X relatively recently, and I own the Nano S which I bought a few years ago.
