1  Economy / Speculation / Re: Microsteel keeps buying into BTC on: Today at 03:46:59 PM
Microstrategy bought +5050 more Bitcoin statistics, this company now owns a total of: 114,042 Bitcoins. When they continuously buy Bitcoin in stages will it cause BTC to break ATH again? What do you expect for BTC at the end of 2021?
I do believe that security that these companies have for their coins is huge. However I also believe that they have insurance for these type of things as well, meaning even if somehow they get their things stolen then they will be paid that much amount as well. Which could be even good for crypto, how?

Well, let's assume that they do get hacked and all of their coins get stolen, that means insurance will pay them that much and they will likely to use that to buy some more, which is awesome and I like that and it will increase the price of it, on the other hand the stolen coins would be a hard time to spend or sell as well which means it will not be dropping the price too much, or even if it ever did then it won't be all at once. So, this company getting hacked and all that money stolen could mean an increase in the price of bitcoin in the long run.

In my opinion it is difficult to say who was definitely to blame, Verstappen could have given way or Hamilton could have simply left more space, or if the curbs were not so high it would not have lifted the car out.  Personally, I classify it as a normal racing accident and am glad that a penalty was not set too high, think with the 3 starting places back Verstappen can live well.

Think there will be more accidents between the two this season, no one wants to leave the other place.
I do agree that it was Verstappen that was in the wrong here, however after what Lewis did back in British gp and not getting any penalty at all and winning so many points? I feel like that makes no sense to give Max this much penalty as well. They should have either given both of them the same penalty, or they should not have given them any penalty at all, you can't have one and not the other.

FIA is acting like they would prefer if Lewis keeps on winning, they were researching on Red Bulls wings as well very carefully just to give them a penalty and yet they ended up not finding anything, or the fact that they changed pitstop times as well just to keep Max a bit slower because RB pitstop is very fast. Long story short I 100% agree that this accident was 100% his fault, BUT there were many times he had no fault and yet got screwed over as well.
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: P2P Crypto Trading - Which Platform Do You Use & Why? on: September 15, 2021, 06:23:36 PM
Which P2P crypto trading platform do you use and why? I'd love to know about the ones you have used and your experiences with them.

Also, I'd like to know why you choose to use P2P rather than exchanges etc.
I personally do not use any P2P platform myself anymore but I am in a telegram chat that does exactly that. People write what they want, it could be any coin and it could even be any fiat if you want to, usually our national fiat honestly because it is a local thing. So, people write like "I want 5 bnb for 5000 fiat in x town" and others reply to that person if they agree or if not then it is just ignored. They even started a reddit subreddit as well to write there as well sometimes, specially announcements.

It has worked great so far, they even have "level" type of stuff where if you are a person who has done many trades p2p in that chat and you are a person who is known good enough, then you get higher level and you can trade a lot easier and tell people you are trustworthy. We have crypto exchanges so it is not really that common, but that chat is definitely used a lot.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: End of bull run so we sell everything? on: September 15, 2021, 05:45:59 PM
There nothing to be sorry for, at that time you have made the right decision according to market condition, even then you assumed the bull run was over, so before the correction you immediately sell some of the coin you hold to secure the profit you have earned. After you sell some coins in your wallet, market conditions continue to improve so you regret and think you have made a big mistake. If the opposite happens after you make a sale, the coin that you hold continues to experience correction, Surely you feel the luckiest person in the world because you have made the right decision.
The only thing to regret is to sell when you think bull run is over, otherwise there is nothing wrong there. Bull run is a long term thing as well, bitcoin always ends up higher and higher and that is why I doubt that people should end up selling thinking they will not make a profit. I can't say all coins will go up, but most big names will keep on going up for the long term so there is no reason to sell unless you are trading and he doesn't sound like he sold because he was trading.

This is why the mistake there is to sell thinking the profit to be made is over, but it was still there, never sell your coins if you think that in the long run it could still make you a profit. I personally believe that my bitcoins will keep making me profit forever, that is why I would never sell them unless I need the money. However, I do understand the logic of not understanding or predicting the right time when it will go down or up, I have been here for years and never understood it neither.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Will BNB be worth $1,000? on: September 15, 2021, 02:12:49 PM
BNB will reach $1000 But for this, the price of Bitcoin has to be $100k. Otherwise I donít expect it. So I think it will take another one more year for that to happen
I do not think that it is depending on the price at all. It could have gone public when it was 10 bucks or it may never go public in the future as well. Remember coinbase doesn't have a coinbase coin whereas binance started out with BNB, so yeah we did gained a lot, but at the same time it allowed them to be binance. The people who gave them money on their ICO earned insane amount of money if they kept it, but without those people paying for binance to exist then they wouldn't be a company worth billions upon billions of dollars neither.

All I think would work in this case is if they manage to convince any nation to accept them with the coin, if not then it could be a million dollars each and nothing would change, or if they can convince a nation then they could do it today. The problem here is the coin, not the price that is attached to it.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: September 14, 2021, 11:26:21 AM
The start of the Serie A season was a very bad start for Juventus. What's more, they were unable to play Federico Chiesa & Juan Cuadrado in the following matches due to injury.


We can only hope that Massimiliano Allegri can motivate his players, and also that the players will be motivated by playing at home. Juventus next match is against Malmo at Eleda Stadium, Sweden.

Maybe before they will win against AC Milan, they will first get their first win of the season against Malmo later Cool
It is obvious that they are feeling the hurt of those who do not play. Plus I never understood the logic of loaning Demiral this season as well, dude was a good backup defender that had great games for the team and considering how old their defense is getting I would guess they could have kept him and played him, plus no Ronaldo as well. Last year they were not good, and this year with players gone to other teams and injured they are even worse.

I do like Juventus and I hope they create some sort of fight for the title again even if they lose it just to make it more interesting, but they do seem a lot worse this season. Surely they could beat Malmo if they play properly but they do not stand a chance against a Milan that plays properly neither.
7  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🤜 GamblingBro.com 🤛 Honest crypto casino reviews ✅ Tested with real deposits ✅ on: September 14, 2021, 10:49:56 AM
I just saw your website using this thread. I can say that this is one of the best review of casino as you've stated the facts of each site what, the rates are very fair and I really agree to your verdict. The VPN category should just be more clear and precise, as far as I know almost all of these websites allows the use of VPN, not sure, but I use VPN on some of this websites to access providers that aren't available using my loval IP.
Yes, the use and allowance of VPN are quite crazy because some sites allow it but I don't understand why these casinos are restricting users to access the game while openly allowing them to use a VPN which is obviously meant to access the blocked content. It may be to satisfy the license provider and allowing the use of VPN because they can call it for privacy but really bogus terms.

And I too enjoy reading these honest reviews not written to appease a casino or promoting them. I hope he can continue doing the same for a longer because at some point everyone gets greedy Wink.

Hopefully, those new people in crypto can control their emotions and not panic and hold their bitcoin or altcoin tight and buy more amounts. This situation will not stay forever because there will be a moment to bring the crypto market rise and get the bull run. The crypto market will recover sooner or later and we need to be patient and enjoy the moment and benefit from the market. Who knows, the next bull run can happen this month or next month until the end of this year so we can back to make a big profit. Learning about controlling emotions is hard, but that is worth doing, not just for new people but also for all involved in crypto.
That's why it's important to learn about the crypto world before deciding to invest. So newbie by having knowledge, they can better control their emotions, because newbies know how crypto works. But most newbies when they first get to know the crypto world, many get the wrong information, they think making profit from crypto is easy. It turned out that when they started investing they were faced with volatile crypto prices and finally they panicked. So I hope for investors who can control their emotions and have knowledge related to the crypto world. Can use this forum or social media to educate many people that it is very important to learn to control emotions.
It is not equal to have emotions and knowledge. Some person who is very new could have patience but not knowledge, or a veteran of crypto could have knowledge but not patience. One of them is something you can study and learn and get better while the other one is a bit about your personality, some people can become patient on investing very well on the first day because they are already a patient person, while the other one could basically be here for years but still can't control their emotions because they are a very emotional person.

So that means, is there are people who can do both, there are people who can't do both, and there are people who can do one but not the other. They are not relevant things, it is required to have both to have a great investment but just because it is required doesn't mean that everyone does what is required before they invest.

No one really forces you to follow or do make out some step based up on what they had speculated.We do have our own or self will on making decisions towards our investment and not theirs.
We've been keep on making out guesses specially when the end of the month of a particular year is approaching since big events back in the past do really happen into these months which it isnt really surprising that people would really be having this kind of impressions whenever we do really reach off this particular time but it isnt bad to be optimistic but not really on that exaggerated part.
Guesses are there to make them, it is easy to make guesses. I mean when was the last time someone made a guess and nobody said anything about it? Of course we could make guesses and of course nothing happens when we are wrong.

I personally feel like it is basically a common thing in bitcoin that people make wrong guesses, and if you are looking at other people for their guesses so that you could use that to make an investment then you are going to be mostly wrong as well. Always focus on your data and research, those will get you somewhere and you will make money because in the end data and research triumphs in the long run, it always has.

Have you notice how corporations took over the internet ?

I am a web dev and designer from 2008 ...i remember the internet being more human / person to person even chatting was fun back in '00 ...now the internet ...it's like a giant platform to do propaganda / advertise / spam and  for narcissists to showoff  on social networks like insta and fbook ...in my opinion we need to do something to get the vibe and freedom back ... else small businesses will have 0 chance against corporations and people will be continue to be programmed in to thinking the internet should be like it is now.

Not good for the economy not good for people.
What can we do about an issue like this? Even if there is a  solution to it, it is going to be a very difficult thing to achieve. things keep on changing all the time and itís difficult for us to change it. And yes what you have said is true, Bitcoin has really changed and the community has changed and itís not as fun as it used to be before.

Everyone thatís coming now just wants to invest and make money and get rich immediately, nobody is talking about how they can use Bitcoin as a currency or trade for transactions daily, they just want to get rich and thatís it for them. There should be lots of companies that are making payments with Bitcoin and paying their employees with it. Things has got to change.
11  Economy / Economics / Re: Ways to avoid being scammed!!! on: September 13, 2021, 06:53:14 PM
I met a liar before. He said he worked as a mercenary in Afghanistan and chatted for half a month. Suddenly I couldn't get in touch. After two days, I sent a message that he wanted to perform the task and needed to send me the secret documents for safekeeping. I deleted him as soon as I heard it. He thought he was an excellent actor, and I was the fool who applauded him. Fortunately, I saw through his trick.
This document scam is happening more than ever nowadays for some reason.
People on this forum and even off-forum on telegram are looking to extract out your identities.

There are scammers who pretend to give out easy loans and will require you to pass a KYC process created by them. Once you send them your documents for verification, you have no idea in what ways and how brutally they can exploit it. I even heard some loans were taken in other's names and huge problems were caused.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Motosport General discussion tread --- Formula1, MotoGP, WTCC, ETCC, DTM..... on: September 13, 2021, 05:08:42 PM
It was a glorious race. My favorite Lando managed to be second, Danny managed to win, and Max/Lewis took each other out. What more can you ever want from a race, and do not forget Bottas finally being unchained and doesn't give a damn about anything and he just put the metal to the pedal and came in third, all the way from back. It is finally a good F1 race, after so many not so great races I am finally feeling like this is a good one.

It took a while to actually be here, actually see a great race, but it finally happened. I also have to say that the first 1-2 of any team this year is a McLaren Cheesy. Red Bull didn't have any 1-2 which is expected with how Perez is not doing so great, and Lewis/Bottas never came in 1-2 this season neither, so the first one-two is McLaren Danny and Lando as well. I really hope that Lando becomes a superstar that wins many championships in the future, he is definitely on the right track (pun intended Cheesy).
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: yesterday's drop in prices, was it natural or man made? on: September 11, 2021, 09:48:50 PM
It was a natural disaster. Just like earthquakes. It is all technical analysis. Markets go up, markets go down. Sometimes they make corrections. I believe yesterday was a correction. The fundamentals are still strong. Now El Salvador has adopted bitcoin fully, I'd say there is no reason to afraid of pretty much anything.

Haha, I would never have thought to use the term natural disaster but I think I call this natural weather. 10% drops in crypto is like regular and normal occurrence for me, not disasters, and for sure not disaster for everyone.

But maybe you have a point since all over the world people live with natural disasters like regular thing, so crypto market people should also regard these corrections in the same way.
If it was natural do you really believe that price would crash from 52k to 42k (it bounced back over but it was initially 42k for a minute there) in under one hour? Nothing natural about the price crashing from 52k to 42k in 30 minutes, that was clearly man made. I am not saying it was out of ordinary, for crypto those type of falls are ordinary at this point but it was definitely man made, but man made drops are ordinary in crypto.

Long story short we are in a situation where crypto crashed because some whales wanted it crashed, plus there was a lot of liquidation going around as well turning bitcoins into USDT to pay the debts, but aside from that it was basically good old bitcoin correction. Just because it is man-made doesn't mean it is unnatural, in crypto world man made drops are alright. I still remember Craig Wright causing price to drop from 7k to 3k in a day.
14  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Some trading mistakes beginners make on: September 11, 2021, 09:08:16 PM
Entering many trades at once
This mistake is really dominant among traders who are losing money. In greed for making more money, we sometimes trade assets that we haven't analyzed properly. Sometimes it might be purely based on the hype on social media while sometimes it may be just the emotional feeling for a project.

I am not sure whether not using a stop-loss is a mistake though. When BTC crashed some months back, someone who had a stop-loss setup would have faced massive loss but when you don't use stop-loss, you give yourself a chance for recovery. But, not every coin can recover so I mean if you are trading new or unknown altcoins, then maybe stop-loss is crucial.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Greatest Gambling Losers on: September 10, 2021, 08:31:51 PM
I can sense how much emotional trauma those guys must have gone through. I actually felt for Akio Kashiwagi  who Lost $19 million and was murdered in his home and it could be as a result of debts he could be owing. It's really sad how people get so trapped by gambling addiction and get so engrossed in that that help becomes an impossible mission.
I don't understand how killing someone is ever going to help. If someone owes money to people, the only chance of getting back the money is maybe if the guy is alive and works for it. If you kill him, forget the money and get ready for some jail time.

It's a pretty old thread but still quite bone-chilling to see those amounts lost by gamblers. I am sure many online gamblers have lost even bigger amounts but neither the casino nor the player would want to reveal.

I'm wondering is it in human nature to read this piece and get a lesson from this or to say, "well, it can't happen to me because I'm smarter"?
Honestly speaking, it's hard for an addict to take lessons from a thread like this because people don't take online discussions and advice seriously.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: The bitcoin market just gifted the El Salvadorians 15% discount on: September 10, 2021, 10:11:56 AM
This could be the best thing that El Salvador is living right now. It is certainly something that is marvellous for them and not only they are getting it on a discount right now, they also had a great start by doing a DCA on the very first day. I hope that the price stays here for a few more days before going up, so that they could get even more money for the future.

I understand that it is not an easy task to handle, but it is definitely going to take some courage and bravery to keep a happy face. Glad that president already said that whales will drop the price on the day of the start before it happened so it gives more credibility on his decision.
That is what they are doing right now. They wanted to do DCA and that is why they are buying more. The great thing about it for the nation is that they could actually print more money and get more bitcoins, which could devalue their own nations currency but at the same time increase the amount of bitcoin they have. Of course they need to balance that out, they can't print unlimited amount of money and constantly buy bitcoins because when you are at Zimbabwe level then having tens of thousands of bitcoin will not be helping you.

However instead of printing money and giving it to wealthy people, if they just bought bitcoin with it then the regular amount of inflation will be recovered from the increases of bitcoin. I believe that their future looks super bright if they keep this up.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Dream Bitcoin 100k on: September 10, 2021, 09:31:09 AM
I agree we cannot predict the exact price of bitcoin, all we can do is to predict but sometimes prediction is not accurate, everything is always depends on the news or updates and development status of Bitcoin and of there is a good news soon it will maybe reach 100K$ but if there is a bad news it will also sure drop. All we can do in this bullish trend is to control our emotions.
That's good mate we need to still be more vegilant on investing, because investing in bullish market is risky than investing in to dip. We now need a big capital to invest because most of the crypto coin is rising and their price now is really expensive, so we need to set a limit price to avoid big loss if ever the price will fall. All I can suggest is always set a limitation and don't be greedy.
Not all cryptos are high, I mean there are still low market cap ones as well. There are also a thousand IDO's a day everywhere too, most of them are shitcoins but you may want to make sure you get in and get out quickly to make that money since early days make a lot of money.

I remember one time I invested 100 dollars into something on its first minutes, and it reached to 700 dollars, I made 7x in just few hours. I was an idiot and didn't sell, but that happened a few times over the course of this period, it is not rare, even though things drop eventually, the early hours are still profitable. Long story short we should not be really too scared of everything, there are few that will make you profit. All you have to do is find low cap stuff that has a future, very hard but not impossible thing to do.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: DYOR or just follow famous people? on: September 09, 2021, 07:04:22 PM
Sometimes you do so many research for your investment,but you make a loss at finally.In the meanwhile,your friends just follow famous people or obey some rumors,and they make huge profits.
Have you ever had such an experience?
If you have,how about your friend ?they make a fortune or not?
I understand that everyone would say it is better to not look at famous people and do your own research. However one thing we are forgetting here is that just because you look at what the influencers are saying doesn't mean that we can't DYOR neither. Go check what they are saying because that is usually the places that have enough money to do marketing and 100% guaranteed paid those influencers to say their name. And that is literally the reason why we see so many useless tokens go up.

However just because those influencers talked about a coin doesn't mean you have to buy it, just research it and you will see how great or terrible it is. That's my trick, I check what influencers say and then pick something among them, I still do my research on all of them.
19  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Investors their mind on: September 09, 2021, 11:24:50 AM
It's joyous to make gains in trading. The problem is how does one control his mind when there is a huge lose
The mindset of a trader is simple; nothing. If you are a good trader then you should not be feeling anything at all, you should be doing something like it is the most regular thing in the world, that way you would be basically trading without a feeling. You should be able to trade like you breathe, it shouldn't be something you do extra, it should be something that you do automatically.

If you put any emotions in it at all, anything at all, then it will become a problem for you. This is why while you are trading the feeling should be nothing at all. I personally fail to do that, thankfully I learned to trade for a long time now and I am finally doing it well, even though I have huge emotions while trading, I learned to supress them and ignore them.
20  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Give me some investment advice on: September 08, 2021, 09:42:15 PM
That's right, don't think trading is easy, because there are many factors that must be studied in order to become a successful trader. Among other things, by learning a lot about everything about the crypto world, so at least we can get an idea which coins are worth buying. Wrong choice of coins for trading, the risk is that we can lose all of our capital. I agree that newbies can try trading using top crypto. Such as BTC, ETH, BNB, ADA and
so on. Another thing may have to be able to control emotions when trading, if trading is affected by emotions, we will always make the wrong decisions.
It is the hardest thing to pick a coin to trade. At the end of the day it is not something that we could be doing very easily because one wrong calculation and we are holding a coin that may never go back above the price we bought it from. For now, there are so many coins that broke their ATH and higher, however there are also a ton of coins that never broke their ATH record neither which means that even though we all go up, some of them go up more than others.

XRP is higher than what it was last year around this time, but it is also lower than its ATH, this means it went up but not near enough. ETH on the other hand was so low last year, and now so much higher and bigger than ATH of last year (then it broke over and made new ATH which is still close). So all in all I would say that it is quite important to pick the right coin to make a profit.
