Have you ever tried the Bitbond? I am thinking about to apply for 2 BTCs to improve my shop and planning to give back within 3 months!

This. Try them out!

This is my life.  Please help me figure a way to turn this idea into something useful?

The REALITY (proveable) of what I can do: make 1.25% PROFIT on my Bitcoin each day, including weekends) using a LEGAL method that does not violate ANY rules of the TWO tools I use.  I spend 10 minutes to do it.  No gambling or anything... I just have a .50% to 2% ish arbitrage system.

If I just do this with my pathetic amount of money, it will take several years before I can have enough $ to make any major difference in the world.

If I write a eBook, people will just share the idea on their blogs.

I need funding or a good idea how to lay a golden egg and not get killed.




Sounds like Bitbond was made for you tbh

Doubling your investment in a year is going to be tricky. The only two things I can think off are gambling or high-yield bitcoin p2p loans on platforms like Bitbond. Going to be tough though.

I don't know about bitbond, but the average apr of btcjam is 9% (with autoinvest on, not manual investing). It would take 8 years(!!!) of compounding interest to double $100,000. So... no. OP wants it done in a year.

I don't think that there is a good way to do it. If there was a safe way to double $100,000, wouldn't everybody do it?  

I don't think you should discount bitcoin p2p lending so easily. This guy made 117% return within 12 months. https://www.bitbond.com/340VAQ7GMQ/investments so it is possible. Will it be easy? No, definitely not.... but it can be done.

Why are people talking about "China" as if all Chinese miners live in a flatshare or something? No matter where the miner is from, it is in his interest to keep the bitcoin price stable/high. Miners investing large quantities of money and time into bitcoin-based operations strengthens the ecosystem, not weaken it.

Falls es uns in unserer kleinen Blase interessiert:

http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Bitcoin-Kreditplattform-Bitbond-bekommt-BaFin-Lizenz-3347905.html


BTW, ist auf deutsch. Ausserdem koennen hier die meisten Englisch, man muss also nur die entsprechenden Links hier posten, dann profitieren alle davon.

das ist doch mal etwas tolles

Toll ist, dass die BaFin da Lizenzen erteilt. Ja. - Aber das Geschäftsmodell von Bitbond ist mE echt heikel. Wenn man sich - um z.B. die Anlaufkosten eines (Fiat-)Ebay-Shops zu finanzieren - BTC leiht, hat man mE eine richtig schlechte Idee. Man wettet damit nicht nur auf die Zukunft des eigenen Shop-Unterfangens, sondern gleichzeitig auch auf eine bestimmte BTC-Kursentwicklung. Sollten BTCs in der Laufzeit des Kredits eine kräftige Kursentwicklung nach oben erfahren, kann der Kreditnehmer das nicht mehr sinnvoll in BTCs bedienen. Ich würde davon komplett die Finger lassen - sowohl als Kreditnehmer wie -geber.

Du hast leider das Konzept Bitbond nicht verstanden. Die meisten Darlehen sind nämlich in Dollar denominiert, vor allem die der Online Händler. Es gibt also kein Kursrisiko

Moore's Law.

I believe the devs are working on the size of the blockchain, but it's not at the top of their list, and rightly so. They have bigger matters which require their more immediate attention.

You're correct to point out the growing size of the blockchain, but it's a relatively small problem amongst others.

Thanks for clarifying
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Was bitcoin designed to be global? on: October 11, 2016, 08:11:18 AM
Given the fact that there are only 21M bitcoins, one could wonder if bitcoin was designed for a few selected or first few adopters and not to be a global currency in a world with +7 billions people.

What happens 40 years from now when most of the people on earth turn to using crypto currency? simply use alt coins when they see bitcoin already in hands of a few hundreds people and not wanting to be manipulated by them or even by 1m coins of satoshi?

Can't we have a second version of same code with same team and the same credibility developing it?


Yes there are only 21M Bitcoins but do remember that they are divisible into 8 decimal units. The design was built for payments on the internet without any middlemen involved aka banks.

It is very arguable that most, if not all of the people would be using Bitcoin as the only cryptocurrency solution 40 years from now. Banks are also interested in the technology to remain relevant in online payments. So we might either see Bitcoin evolve to become the dominant solution for online payments or we see it replaced by something else.

Or maybe we would see Bitcoin become as a sort of commodity and as a store of value.

This is the perfect answer!

How about drastic jump up to 7-10k $ everything possible! Time will show  Roll Eyes
i agree with you about the price of bitcoin and i also think that bitcoin price will be jump up to 700$ to 1000$ in the beginning of the 2017 because people are mostly buying bitcoin and hold it for high price and i hope bitcoin will be easily cross the 10K.

$10k is out of the reach at a moment and it will take long time to achieve that price and if we talk about the price that bitcoin would be holding in the next year wont exceed then $700.
But we have to be patient if we want to achieve that price, nobody can really predict the actual year that it will happen there are a lot of factors affecting the price performance of bitcoin but with continues increase we can see that in the near future.

good prediction but it would be huge success if price would come to 1000 first 4 digits but to expect price over 7k that is really out of question
image what will have to happen for bitcoin so that price would be that much

Bitcoin would rule the world if it gets to 10k Cheesy
13  Other / Off-topic / Re: Would you like to receive your salary in BTC? on: October 10, 2016, 08:35:09 AM
If you are a BTC lover, would you one day like to get your paycheck 100% in BTC?

Personally I won't. Because many facilities in my area doesn't support BTC payment. Smiley I do not mind receiving, say, 20% of my pay in BTC denomination.

Like most people here I would like to receive a percentage of my pay in bitcoin. Unless of course we get to a point where I can pay my rent and utilities in bitcoin. Then I would be happy with receiving just bitcoin.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can Bitcoin help poor countries? on: October 06, 2016, 08:07:48 AM
Can Bitcoin or any other altcoin help poor countries?
how? what can be done?

There are three main ways, I think bitcoin and the blockchain can help poor countries.

1. Governments can use bitcoin's blockchain as a public ledger to openly display receivables and expendables. This could help cut down on corruption and fraud.
2. Bitcoin is already revolutionizing the remittance markets, making it cheaper and quicker for foreigners to send money back to their country. These are huge sums of money and the consequent savings will have a great impact on countries in Sub-saharan Africa and the Philippines especially.
3. Bitcoin allows for cross-border lending meaning that small business owners in Kenya and other under-banked regions of the world can get access to working capital. They grow as a result and hire new staff -  which benefits their local communities.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 'Brave' browser starts paying bitcoins on: October 06, 2016, 08:04:00 AM
I guess the browser will also integrate with micropayment solutions like SatoshiPay, which will let webmasters create premium content which only costs a fraction of a cent.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: If bitcoin rose to $1M, what you do? on: October 05, 2016, 08:36:37 AM
If this change happened in a short space of time, there would be a huge influx of millionaires. As a result, I think the purchasing power of fiat currencies would go down. So although there would be far more millionaires, the things you could buy with that amount would be much lower. So I would sell and live in the new middle class Cheesy
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: PayPal receiving Bitcoin?! on: October 05, 2016, 08:34:45 AM
Until now, there's no news/trusted source which say paypal will accept bitcoin.
What we know is PayPal cooperate with Coinbase which means PayPal is a bit more friendly for bitcoin-related transaction Smiley

This Cheesy

19  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Bitbond Legit ? on: October 04, 2016, 09:20:54 AM
I was checking my transaction on Blockchain.info till I saw an ad about this Bitbond.com website which as far as I know is an investment platform for lending (for small businesses).
I think that Blockchain.info don't advertise randomly using third party ad networks but they get paid directly ... so It's unlikely that they advertise a scam , however ,I found that the owner (or the OP : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=248441.0 ) received a negative trust for fake reviews or something.

So I want to hear from those who actually used the website (for both taking loans or giving them) , I'd appreciate any honest review.

I've been following & investing on Bitbond for a while and can tell you it's not a scam. They've been around since 2013, fully regulated with over 40,000 users. The trust issue on bitcoin talk seems to have come from someone claiming reviews were fraudulent when in fact they are not. I would recommend you check out reviews online which are vastly positive. Trustpilot, or this one http://peersociallending.com/investing/bitbond-review-my-bitcoin-lending-test/ for example.

In case you have doubts about the owner, you can watch him present at Finovate, the biggest fintech conference in the world, here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBCOalBIGPM

Voting for Clinton. Not because I like her, but because Trump is unhinged.
