I am one of the victims of the word hold. because I always think that holding for the long term is more profitable. it actually hurts. even now I have sold the assets that I have ..

I only believe HODL is true for Bitcoin.
It doesn't apply to any other "assets"

I think his extremist opinions he posts are valuable to the diversity of viewpoints around here but have been beyond appropriate in his feedback ratings.
Even though he called me/all of us sig-spammers while we were applying for chipmixer (yeah I saw that before they were deleted)...

I hope he continues to bust balls because their is half truth to much of what he says, and it's funny, but @Dig Bicks you extending your rampage to the trust system is going to be detrimental to whatever message you are trying to put out. So stop it..

Why not actually use your mind and figure out how to create real wealth.
I made around 20k for each captcha I did for the raiblocks distribution (nano), sold it near the top and made an easy $1.5million.

lol nice wealth creation   Roll Eyes
Admit I'm jealous though if that's true, but luck, not like you added real wealth to the world by solving a few captchas.

Speaking for myself personally, I try to avoid giving merit to users I see starting lots of threads that look like cries to receive merit.

I thought about making a topic

Guy doesn't know anything about the use of BTC because he is only interested in trying to profit.

"real use because some countries are denying to accept it due to some.features like the anonymity."

Uh, it's not something made for governments to accept as payment..
If a totalitarian government outlaws BTC. That's what BTC is for..

If their is a REAL Apocalypse the world will be thrust into anarcho capitalistic hunter-gatherer state and it will no longer be us vs them because all of their socialistic hopes and dreams will evaporate with no hope of implementation outside of small family-like communities.

Their would no longer be any central government to take from the rich and give to the poor. No more welfare, no more protectionism of pet classes, just every man for himself.

If they realize this, prepare, and fight for their own survival, they stand just as good of a chance as anyone else.
Everyone's chance would depend on their skill and provisioning. If they are very intelligent and have the skills needed to survive in anarchy, they will survive fine if they can conform to the new system of no system.

What are the chances of a liberal having the qualities needed to survive as opposed to a conservative?
I'd say less but not zero.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/12/macron-government-to-face-no-confidence-vote-following-french-protests.html

They are trying to swing this like the solution is to move FURTHER left, but the left has been the problem the entire time.

The high taxes they are rioting about is from the increasing leftism. The immigration that is sucking tax money and destroying the culture is the push for leftism to dilute western values of the voting population.

The entire thing is a setup for communist takeover, and now the communists are going to try to step in and "save the day" while all of this has been their plan ALL ALONG to TAKE OVER THE WEST!

Don't let the commies win!

France! Please shake the cobwebs out of your heads from the brainwash fog that has been pressed upon you before it is too late and you are all in gulags!

Their is a MASSIVE international scheme to confuse and weaken the west so THEY can take over and achieve ULTIMATE POWER!
This is a war for control of the free world and you don't even know it! All of the pushed degeneracy, white guilt, immigration, and every step further left is one step closer to their ultimate goal.
Wake up!

Every time a leftist proposes ANYTHING - THINK - How does this proposition advance their ultimate goal agenda of authoritarian one world government domination?
It ALWAYS does! Inch by inch they are winning.

It's not a rumor unless you are under some sort of censorship blackout where you are. I've heard a lot of videos/channels on youtube aren't viewable from france and their is a MSM media blackout on the subject ofcorse.

This is quite informative on the subject.

Or someone who has the bankroll does the trade.

Op sends btc to say CITM
CiTM buys Google's and gets them shipped to OP

IF CITM feels like buying 12k of BTC at the time..

I don't want the trade, I was just stating a hypothetical of what it takes to make the deal happen and the risk involved since he thinks he is going to "save some money".

I am in the U.S and am not asking anyone to break the law. I'm just trying to see what prices people would offer to buy at so I can save some money.

If anything we are going to charge you for our service provided.

For instance, I would provide this service for you for +10% ..

First you send me the BTC @ 150% expected.
Then I sell the BTC on coinbase.
Then I order your goggles after the fiat hits my bank and have them shipped to you.
Then I would refund you any overages (minus the +10%) in BTC after I put it back into BTC.
If I get fucked in any step of this process then you wait and eat the cost.

Sound reasonable?

1414  Other / Serious discussion / Idea Discussion - Bitcoin Public Relations BPR Fork - Funding BTC Advancement on: December 11, 2018, 09:15:01 PM
This is an idea for an altcoin whos purpose is to fund a positive and informative PR campaign for Bitcoin similar to the DASH budget paid by the mining revenue.

I would like it to be forked from BTC so all existing keys get some coin to either dump or donate to the foundation. This would also raise awareness.

Change the block reward code to something like 10 BPR to the miner that solves the block and 2.5 BPR for every block goes to the foundation to spend on the Bitcoin PR campaign, no more halving. Maybe more, maybe less, help me think this through.

Set the coin up for Merge Mining like Unobtanium-UNO to be mined alongside Bitcoin by Bitcoin miners.
Why would Bitcoin miners want to merge mine BPR? Because BPR is going to help Bitcoin = helping them.

I think that Bitconers, even altcoin haters, will like BPR and support it because of it's mission.
If anyone wanted to help support the foundation they could do so by donating BPR to the foundation that they mined, bought, or received in the fork, and by providing liquidity on BPR/BTC markets because it will only work if it's worth something to pay for the PR campaign.

What would it be spent on?
How about some youtube ads? The same way they are always trying to sell me a Mercedes we can run little positive awareness ads for Bitcoin.
Not "Buy Bitcoin" ads but maybe just some positive facts about Bitcoin, information.

Something like
"Bitcoin, bringing power to the people across the world, put the power of YOUR finance in YOUR hands! paid for by the BPR foundation"
"Bitcoin, the most secure network in history, trust in numbers"
With cool graphics n sheet.

Small clickable google ads, facebook ads, ads on forums across the internet, on blogs, wherever we can buy small ads where normies are at.
How cool would it be to see an add for Bitcoin during the news hour of your local TV station? Maybe even a superbowl add some day.
Doge had a Nascar, maybe we can get Bitcoin on a Formula 1 car, MotoGP, Xgames skateboarding and BMX, the Olympics!

BPR can pay for the ads, pay professionals to create the ads, pay for management of the foundation to commission the campaign.

The foundation would have to be transparent and remain true to the purpose of advancing BTC. Always do the right thing, the best we can, and show it.

BPR itself will get publicity because our ads will say "paid for by BPR" so we advertise for the foundation at the same time in an indirect way.


I think a lot of people are grateful for what positive PR Bitcoin gets now (like Antonopoulos) and with just a little trust to give the BPR foundation a chance in the beginning (donate, mine, liquidity) it could go far.
Everyone will see that the foundation is doing what it said it would do when they start seeing the ads.

What we would need at first is just brainstorming a good plan, a good coder to code the altcoin, someone to make a website for BPR to explain it's mission, some miners to run it, and some Bitcointalk threads if it actually happens.

We don't need any scammy ICO to raise money to get it off the ground.
I think enough people to start it and make it happen would just help because they believe in the mission of the project pro bono or IOU, if it succeeds we can FAIRLY make it worth our work to make it happen and fairly employ people to run the foundation.

I think if it needed an ICO and the promise of profit then it's not worth doing.
This isn't for profit, it is a humanitarian effort for Bitcoin and the good of all people of the world (If you believe in Bitcoin for the right reasons).  

It would benefit Bitcoin holders too, and miners, and businesses like Coinbase, and everyone directly or indirectly invested in Bitcoin and the Crypto community. So if they can trust that BPR is going to do what it says it's going to do, they might want to help too.


What do you think?
Why is this a terrible idea?
1415  Other / Meta / Re: Ideas for topic ordering in altcoin announcements? on: December 11, 2018, 06:38:52 PM
Sell the top spots to them like parking meters or youtube superchats. Send so much BTC and then the time ticks down for their positions.
Spend it on a superbowl add for BTC  Cool
I think this is a joke. However the annoying part about this which hits home is that there are actually forums that do this sort of shit. Including several other crypto forums. Its ridiculous and wouldn't solve any problem at all. We already know that these projects are willing to spend money on spamming their threads up to the top because there are many services which offer bumping services. If the forum did this it would just be giving them permission to do it as long as they pay.
I posted this in a somewhat entertaining way I suppose because I think the irony of making them, who suck the money out of BTC and destroy the public image of crypto as a whole, PAY for some positive PR of Bitcoin would be sweet justice.

If the problem we are discussing is spam then yes this would solve that problem because they are using spam to get to the top. If they could get to the top without spam then they wouldn't need spam anymore and as a matter of fact I think they would start to make efforts to keep spam out of their own threads because spam in their threads makes them look like shit scams and hurts their image.
Anyone that is serious about "investing" or serious about the technicalities and merits of the coins code is going to be turned off having to wade through spam.

We know that they are willing to spend money right. Instead of that money going to bad actors (spammers) that money could go toward the advancement of Bitcoin.

Have you thought any more about this that you put in the Maybe category:
• Charging ICOs a fee to make their ANN here. You could even get rid of the ANN board completely and give them their own sub once they've paid the fee. If there's no Ann board then there will probably be no paid bumping because it will be useless, but let them spam away in their own slum and squalor.

Maybe.
I think that would once and for all solve the paid bumping issue and it's about time ICOs started contributing financially to the mess they're causing here and the extra manpower that is needed from staff to clean it up.
If it solved the paid bumping issue once and for all then their would be less manpower needed to clean stuff up. They can self-mod their own threads and keep them clean if they want to look professional. Spam in their threads looks very unprofessional to me.

I think a better solution (and as I have suggested before) would be that lower ranked member's posts in there just don't bump the thread at all. I think they'll just get around it though by using higher-ranked accounts which could easily be purchased (if they don't even have them already or some high ranked bumping service will then pop up to meet demand).
I also like this idea where say only member and above accounts bump threads. Sure they would build high ranked bumping services but they would eventually run out of easily available high ranked accounts in the same way we expect them to run out of airdropped smerits. It will not be easy fr them to farm up a bunch more member accounts with the merit system in place as it is now.

Their are a lot of good ideas in this thread relating merits to bumping but it is tricky.
If it comes to a system where you have to "spend" merit to bump threads I guess I won't be bumping anything until I'm over 1000 and have some to spare, like in another 1.5-2 years...

By having a group that screens every project, you inadvertently present the idea that any project that makes it past the group and is posted on the forum is legit, when in fact, it could be one of the biggest and most elaborate scams yet.
Absolutely correct. I do not think that Bitcointalk should get itself into endorsing ANY altcoin or project other than the one and only true Bitcoin.


One last thing is all of these "tokens" that don't even have their own blockchain. They are not pioneering the advancment of cryptocurrency technology but rather just sucking what they can out of it just using "crypto" as a marketing ploy and an easy convenient way of sucking in money.
I'm not sure they should even be under "Alternate cryptocurrencies" but why are their so many of them still under "Announcements (Altcoins)"? Not enough manpower to move their threads to "Tokens (Altcoins)"?
Myself I wouldn't even move them but delete them with a little note to the OP "Try again in the right section".
