1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin scams and new Bitcoin users on: November 19, 2019, 08:01:19 AM
These scams have really made away with the funds of so many people and i am glad you have shared it openly so that other new members who join this forum can be aware of these schemes. Investors in here need to make the due diligence before investing into any project that gets launched into this space.

Why don't you take the humble pie and think about some of the possible reasons why your thread could be locked. I believe this will help clarify things out better for you than boiling up with all this unecessary hate. You made a claim about bitcoin which has no proof or solid evidences and in such situation moderators AKA keepers of this forum have every right to lock your thread to prevent FUD from spreading.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will Bitcoin Ever Be Regulated? on: November 18, 2019, 11:55:42 AM
No, bitcoin can never be regulated because it operates on a decentralized network which is distributed across the globe. This is the reason why the government of several countries don't want to implement the use of bitcoin but rather they all want to create their own cryptocurrency so that they can manipulate it to suit their own benefits.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do people decide to create Cryptocurrencies? on: November 18, 2019, 11:11:28 AM
What spurs up most people is the greed to make their own riches out of the ponzy scam crypto projects that they launch into this space. When it comes to marketing there are equally marketing and promotional platforms that equally don't care about their reputation but the money they make hence launch any scam project into the space. The only cryptocurrency to ever invest in is Bitcoin.
5  Economy / Speculation / Re: The 2020 Next Bitcoin Halving vs The 2016 One on: November 17, 2019, 04:56:07 AM
This upcoming bitcoin halving is likely going to a be a bigger one than what ocurred in 2016. First of all, the number of people who were investing into bitcoin compared to those who are at the moment are far lesser than today so if people are to buy during the FOMO the price rate is going to be insane. Also, most countries are embracing cryptocurrencies at the moment and this is a very good thing to see the price reach an all time high again. This is the best time to buy into the dip of bitcoin pending this upcoming bitcoin halving.
6  Economy / Lending / Re: Borrow 1 bitcoin and give you 1.1 bitcoin on: November 17, 2019, 04:38:57 AM
Reasons why nobody in here would ever this take this cheap bid of yours.
1. You are a newbie in this forum with no credibility of good faith of making transactions with other members.
2. These kind of investments are never true and will never true, no one will ever trust you on this.
3. Do yourself a favor and take this off before your account gets negged by members who are authorized to do so.
4. You are definitely going to scam people because i just realized you have two addresses asking for such a loan in the lending board. You will definitely get this loan in a million years.  Grin
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The Best Crypto with a use case on: November 15, 2019, 04:31:51 AM
I am finding that many of the crypto's on the market have no use case what so ever, its very frustrating as an investor to research hundreds of useless cryptos.  They are just simply a tool to gain wealth from investors. 
I did find one crypto with an amazing use case and that is Horizon State - HST - decision token. Its a voting platform on the block chain.  The votes lodged on the block chain are unhackable, extremely cost effecting and voting results are instant.  I just cannot understand why all governments of the world are not voting on the blockchain, it makes logical sense to save taxpayers money and create a secure voting platform.
source: https://horizonstate.com/platform/?section=securevoting
Invest: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/decision-token/

It maybe a project with a use case driving the liquidity of its native token which is HST in this case but it does not suit the description of "The best Crypto with a use Case". Lol, it's 24-hour trading volume is less than $50 bucks! Also, i think they had some issues with the management team as there seems to be a press release on their website stating so. Well let's see how this new management team turns things around. Hopefully, they can make this project work out finally as one of the best.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Informed is Your Country's Police About Crypto? on: November 14, 2019, 04:06:12 PM
Well in my country i don't know the specific rules  about the use of cryptocurrencies or probably i am not aware of that there are even some made. But i know there are offices that are registered in the country where people purchase cryptocurrencies so definitely i guess the country welcomes the idea of making transactions with cryptocurrencies. The police would definitely know what to do once there is any fraud regarding cryptocurrencies.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Reality of tokens on: November 14, 2019, 10:19:42 AM
That's so true. Most altcoins have turned out worthless as they had no real products in this space. all that they do is just to create hype about their project and lure inexperienced crypto investors into them. Ethereum blockchain network network invented a very good use case of smart contract but this has been abused terribly by greedy project managers
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Red trust accounts wearing signature..... on: November 14, 2019, 09:56:04 AM
Campaign rules are made by the team and the bounty manager as well so if that bounty campaign the rules don't disregard red trust account from participating then i guess they can participate as well. lets not forget they are still part of the community and committing a crime does not mean they can not represent any project again.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: short term or long term investing on: November 14, 2019, 09:38:55 AM
About five years ago i would have preferred long term trading to short term investment because of the legitimate projects that were launched into this space. but these days almost every project is interested in their own quick gains. they abandon the project as soon as they have raised enough funds. hence us investors also have to wisen up and sell off our holdings as soon as we hit exchanges.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Pre-ordered "Simple & Elegant Wallet" cards from Bobby Lee - Ballet on: November 14, 2019, 04:31:44 AM
~To be fair this isn't 100% terrible, I very foolishly bought something similar from Bitswiss, and put a few bitcoin on it, they stayed for years and never went anywhere. They were legit and they even switched their focus and stopped selling wallets. Now this company, I don't know and would I do it again like that? No. I'd want to generate my own Private key and have some sort of scratch off sticker included.

but it IS 100% terrible!
unless you are only using the card for its looks and not putting any coins in it, i don't recommend it to my worst enemy. you are putting all your trust into a company that you don't even know and is brand new with 0 history. if one company in the past hadn't scammed you it doesn't make the whole idea a good one. and it is not just about them scamming you, maybe they were shitty and generated a wrong key, encrypted it wrong,... and after you scratch things off you won't be able to claim back your money!
Good lord, i thought i was the only one who shared this thought. Damn, their wallet is pretty cute but has low level of security. So basically all that any thief has to do is to steal the card from you and he/she can have access to your funds because we have both the private key and its passphrase all on the wallet. OMG, this is terrible, i was thinking they would at least make users choose their own passphrase which in this case will serve like a pin to a normal crypto mobile wallet.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What type of Cryptocurrency is used in the Deep Web for transactions? on: November 13, 2019, 04:55:16 PM
I have not made any personal transactions within the deep web of the internet but i have read that it basically bitcoin and ethereum that are mostly used. But making transactions within the deep web is risky and i would advise you stay away from them before you lose your cryptocurrencies to some scammers.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How someones made 184 Billion Bitcoin appear out of nowhere on: November 13, 2019, 04:41:44 PM
Are there any reference of this event here in bitcointalk forum? Something written by Satoshi?
Yes.

The incident was initially spotted and flagged up by Jeff Garzik here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=822.0

The main thread in Development & Technical Discussion is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=823.0

It actually seems like Gavin Andresen wrote a temporary fix first, before satoshi wrote a permanent fix about 20 minutes later.

satoshi then released this as version 0.3.10 a few hours later: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=827.0
That's was a timely intervention on the part of these developers you know and i think the crypto industry is indebted to them for this quick solution that they had to fix in the shortest time possible. I really have a catching up to do to get to the crust of this matter. Though it's way into the past but every tiny bit of information in this industry is worth it!
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: From Buying Pizza To Buying A Condo in Manhattan. Bitcoin is Fast Evolving on: November 12, 2019, 03:38:12 PM
At last someone got the balls to use such a huge amount of Bitcoins for a purchase. I must be honest i am quite surprised to see this even though it helps in the adoption of bitcoin as a mode of payment. But i never imagined it would be with such a huge amount of coins especially when the value of bitcoin is now known all over the entire world. We are not back in the days when bitcoin was worth nothing and yet that dude used thousands of bitcoin all for a pizza.
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: CBI officer Blackmails Gujarat Based Bitcoin Businessman for $700,000 on: November 09, 2019, 12:35:49 PM
This is really pathetic and very disturbing to all crypto enthusiasts who are probably in this forum and hope to see the arms of the government soften so that they can operate crypto related business in India. I hope all the necessary investigations are done to ensure a fair judgement and also the government should really come out and state its stance with cryptocurrencies clearly so that its citizens would not engage in undercover business.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What Effect Would This Have On Bitcoin? on: November 08, 2019, 10:31:27 PM
I have also heard a couple of times about a global economic recession that will hit across the globe but i thought this would be in the financial world and not the crypto industry. Actually, i calculated this recession might boost the crypto market as many investors would prefer to convert some of their funds and hold as assets of several cryptocurrencies.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Dealing with cryptocurrency (in my country) isn't easy as I thought on: November 06, 2019, 01:49:52 PM
Some countries really frown upon the use and advertisement about cryptocurrencies. if your country is of such negative views about the use of cryptocurrencies i would suggest you stay low on the exposure and wait for tempers to calm down before going all about making cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology all known. Remember, your safety is important first.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Should Ethereum Add the "Frozen Wallet" Feature for Certain Adresss? on: November 04, 2019, 10:55:31 PM
As we know, there are currently many cases of crypto hacking, especially this often occurs in ERC20-based tokens. So to anticipate this, should Ethereum add the "Frozen Wallet" feature just for certain Adresss to their smart contract? I think this way can prevent the hackers to selling their loot. Although this method will change the crypto vision from "decentralization" to "centralization", but if this method is effective I think it's no matter.

What do you think?
Not a good one mate, that would surely break the freedom that crypto enthusiasts seek to grant the world in terms of their finances. I think people should learn how to keep safe their funds and also learn how to do stuffs the right way and avoid shortcuts as this always lead to getting scammed. Several documents and guidelines have been provided to guard people from being scammed but the problem is that most people fail to read!
