1  Economy / Speculation / Re: Trump called Bitcoin a scam, and Bitcoin fell below $33,000. What do you think? on: Today at 04:09:29 AM
For me those who sold because of those statement from Trump are the weak hands that could easily be swayed by the FUD.

That has been the situation here, even in 2017, we have been calling for those weak hands. Maybe they still didn't learn their lessons in crypto space not to be emotional and be affected by tweets coming from who ever it is.

Bitcoin has always been called a scam ever since it has been created so many big personalities has stated it before but look at how high it went.

Bitcoin has always been resilient with such kind of attacks, as you have said, we always makes new all time high after such statement. So don't be surprised by at the end of the year, the price might go as high as $100,000.

^^ Not a great prediction by my good self, Federer will not be happy with that, very little game
time before Wimbledon, following on from my excellent prediction above I recon there is a chance
he will pull out of Wimbledon...too many will be able to beat him.

Anyway great result from Felix, he will be well happy with that.
Yes unfortunatly federer performance became weak these last couple of years and he is not able to get to the advanced rounds and he lose frequantly and in grass were he used to be very strong i think its time for him to retire but i think he will play in wimbeldon it will be some kind of retribution.

It's understandable that he is getting weak, and if you have followed him, he started this whole sabbatical thingy in tennis. He will just carefully choosing which tournaments he enter because he knows that his body his giving up. And then we have him injuring himself in the last 2 years or so.

Yes, good to see Felix, have him in my radar for the last 2 years and I think this young player will be great in the next 3-5 years.

^^ We also have Nonito Donaire vs Nordine Oubaali who both tested positive for the corona virus that's why the fight was pushed for several months. Then Nonito blasted Oubaali that you will thought it was a mismatch fight.

Lopez might be affected by the virus, but I don't see if putting a lack luster performance. This is his first mandatory fight so for sure he wanted to show up again, with or without covid-19 effect.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The bull market still exists on: Today at 02:30:32 AM
It's really profitable to invest in bitcoin. If you buy at a lower price then just hold and wait the time it will pump, you will surely earn profit. The bull market is not yet over, although there's a market correction, it doesn't mean that the bull run is already end.

Timing is the key here, that's why you will hear a lot of FUD, because they wanted to bring the price close to ceiling and then buy tons of Bitcoin.

The Fed's FOMC concluded that it will not increase the interest rate, and inflation has not run out of control. The three major conditions of this bull market, over-issuance of the U.S. dollar, institutional buying and the addition of countries are still continuing.

I haven't check the news, so if this is true then I will say that this is good news at least.

The bull market continues, and now that you can hold onto the low price of Bitcoin, you can enjoy the price spree in a few months.

Definitely, we just need to remain calm, bull market can appear anytime specially in the last quarter of this year.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Naoya Inoue vs Michael Dasmarinas June 19 on: June 16, 2021, 06:30:11 AM
I do not want to offend the Filipino fans in this thread, however, I wish with all my heart that Naoye Inoue will win this. However, the all boxing fans will like what might be next because this might prepare Inoue for a rematch and a unification vs. Nonito Donaire hehehe.

Well if he beats Dasmarinas then I don't think Filipinos are going to be offended here. They are just fanatics specially with boxers but they know how to take losses.

If Inoue win then he has to face to great Filipino boxers, Nonito Donaire and then Casimero still waiting at the side and wanted to have crack against the Monster.

Japanese and Filipinos though are divisional rivals, that's why it build a lot of hype between these two nations specially in boxing. I remember Gerry Penalosa vs Masamori Tokuyama. He lost the first fight and the subsequent rematch, it was really a heart breaking news for Filipinos.

In any case, Dasmarinas might be the huge underdog here, but as what most of the Filipinos says, he might pull one of the biggest upsets in this division.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will China's crackdown on Bitcoin cause Bitcoin to become worthless? on: June 16, 2021, 06:10:58 AM
As we all know, in the cryptocurrency market, Chinese account for a large portion. So what impact will the Chinese government's total blockade of Bitcoin have on the cryptocurrency market? The sharp drop in the price of Bitcoin is the result we have seen, so after this blow, can the price of Bitcoin return to its peak, or will it fail? What do you think? I am confused now, hope someone can answer it for me.

Just even China can stop bitcoin, if they ban bitcoin mining, then other nations will take and cover for them. Although it might affect the price it will be on short term only. Not only China, but even crypto influencer such as Elon Musk cannot make BTC worthless.

So I will advise you to understand this, maybe you are reading to much crypto media, that's why you are confused as most of the times they have narrative to take negatively about bitcoin.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: No DOGE Allowed? Thai SEC Bans Meme, Fan and Exchange Tokens as Well as NFTs on: June 14, 2021, 04:26:01 AM
It's understandable, as we all know that there are a lot of crypto hypes like Meme coins and then NFT's. They just wanted to protect their people, so there local SEC needs to come forward and take actions about it.

It's obvious that this craze has taken the world by storm, and the Thai government, although I would say crypto friendly, will have to draw the line here. No Thai's are going to be the next victim here.

1 week to go ,..

Hey Filipino Boxing fans , have you already find yourself betting appropriately?
Im excited to witness this fight. If Dasmarinas defeat Inoue, this will be a big victory for him. A chance as well to become a popular boxer like Pacquiao and Donaire.

Though we know its not going to be easy since Inoue is a good boxer and still undefeated.

Just few days left before this big fight, another recognition for Filipinos if ever.

Another big win, this one is even bigger for the Filipino boxers as Dasmarinas is not known in the world, but beating Inoue will make him very popular and he will get big fights going forward, who knows, he can also be signed by MP promotion if he is not under on Manny yet.
Indeed, this is his chance to prove himself and be well known. We know Inoue is his nation's pride, a great boxer and undefeated but nothing is impossbile here. Even Dasmarinas were tagged as underdog in this fight, we know he prepared himself and now in perfect condition to defeat Inoue.
I will support and bet for Dasmarinas so hopefully he will give us an exciting fight.

Correct, proved himself because this is like a once in a life time fight for Dasma. He might not get the chance to fight against the Monster in the future. He can test himself out against the best out there. And we all know that Filipinos loves to be the underdog in every fight because there are no pressure for them and then can perform as normal. So this is going to be exciting, as Dasma might come strong in the early rounds to get Naoya uncomfortable and pull a impossible upset.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Tennis League All Thread on: June 14, 2021, 03:19:44 AM
What a comeback from Djokovic! Tsitsipas has started the final game superly and brought the score to 2-0 very quickly. But after that, Djokovic started gathering himself up. He destroyed Tsitsipas (6-3, 6-2, 6-4) and made an insane comeback. I think both players were really awesome today. And Djokovic got a deserved victory and title.
we've seen Djokovic make a lot of comebacks, some were against Roger Federer, Nole has the ability to comeback since he does not give up and he has the sills for it as well, i am not surprised to see him doing it again in the same tournament after the match against Musseti, he deserved to win the title 100% even though i am a Rafael Nadal fan.

Yeah, but we haven't seen him down 0-2 in Grand Slam and come back to win the title.

Damn, I thought that Tsitsipas had it, but after the bathroom break and changeover, it was a difficult Djokovic turning into another beast mode again. In the first 2 sets, he was some what timid and doesn't have the energy.

Anyway, I lost my bet obviously, was too close, but Stepanos gained a lot of experience in this finals for sure.
10  Economy / Speculation / Re: Is $65,000 the peak of this bull market? on: June 13, 2021, 05:04:08 AM
I'm speculating bitcoin will redeem ATH again at the end of the year, peaking maybe around $100k , we see a lot of people popping up against bitcoin so it makes its current price fall around $36k at the moment, not impossible to make a comeback because almost every bad news usually accompanied by good news that makes the market excited again.

Still a long way to go for a 6 digit prediction. We have been bouncing just around ~$40,000 for quite sometime now.

Maybe the bull run is over short term, we still have to look though in the last quarter of this year. If the prices goes down or at least we remain in this level, then $100,000 is not possible. And I'm sure many are going to be disappointment as many have been predicting at least $100,000 or even more at the end of this year. So let see how it pans out.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Tennis League All Thread on: June 13, 2021, 04:33:24 AM

I went with over 20.5 games in this one. That could be a winning choice even with 2 sets that go the distance and I am thinking this will be a 3 set match. Quite possibly needing extra games in the third before winner emerges.

Nice bet and easily won as Krejcikova won the title in 3 sets. Surprising names in the final, but this will probably happen more often as there is no one on the women side that can really dominate the field.

Didn't expect that Djokovic would win against Nadal and he is the favorite to win the title against tsitsipas.

Another good call by @Trofo. Krejcikova won it in 3. Ladies are really unpredictable, lucky for those who see Krejcikova winning the title for this year. Wonder though what is the outright odd for this one.

I might go with Stepanos, I know it's a long shot but I'm pulling the trigger @3.45. And then +4.5, it's gonna be close so this is a good handicap bet for me. Goodluck to all bettors.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Lomachenko vs Nakatani June 26 on: June 13, 2021, 03:37:19 AM
I hope we can see the Loma of old although in his last fight Lopez slip a lot of good punch he still has the speed but not the speed of Loma that we used to see, he needs this win very badly and he needs to win convincingly so he can get back to one of the top fighters in boxing, and if he wins here he can ask for a rematch against Lopez, the match I believe is very close to calling.

Both Masayoshi Nakatani and Vasyl Lomachenko are victims of Teofimo Lopez so either of them could ask for a rematch depending on who is going to win. But I would want to see more of a Lopez vs Lomachenko 2 in the coming months. It was a great match worth watching once again. It might happen. Lomachenko will probably dominate Nakatani in this fight. But even if Loma is the heavy favorite in this match, Nakatani has actually a good chance.
Im also thinking the same, anyone who win in this game can ask for a rematch with Lopez thats why this fight is a must watch.
Both Loma and Nakatani are a good boxer, they have what it takes and the courage to win thus for me its hard to predict who is going to win.
But certainly, the winner for this fight can lift his boxing career to another level.

I think the pressure here is more on Loma, we all knew that he is coming from a lost against Lopez, and he is the favourite to win that fight, unfortunately he has some injury so he is not 100% in that fight.

So if he claims that the injury is heal now, then we should expect him to win in a dominant fashion. But by chance, he losses this one and made another excuses, I think he will net to reconsider his options as he is also not getting any younger.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: When will be bearish market over?? on: June 13, 2021, 03:01:50 AM
This is not a bear market... it's very much a bullish break. August/September will pickup

Well we will have to see, as far as bitcoin goes, I think we are still in the bullish sentiments, however, we have seen early bearish sign, because of some FUD and crypto influencer tweet against bitcoin.

But it is good though, at least the price is still cheap for some altcoins and we can still bag a lot and then wait till the end of the year. Usually at the last quarter, we see massive jump in prices so don't lost hope yet as the price will pick up.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can El Salvador's adoption of Bitcoin as legal currency increase interest in Sat on: June 13, 2021, 02:13:52 AM
On Google, I found that the minimum wage there is between $200 and $300 per month.

There is another site that reports that the average income is $1,700 a month.

Whatever the truth of these figures may be, it appears that the people there are not generally wealthy, at least compared to US dollars.

El Salvador is one of the developing countries in Central America, so it's just above the regional average if I'm not mistaken.

Because of this, owning a Bitcoin must seem unfathomable to a vast majority of people living there so do you think this will lead to more people talking about Satoshis?

Possibly raising Bitcoin's interest even further?

Economic and more purchasing power for their population if they started to stack sats because of the government's adoption of Bitcoin.

Apparently, some American still believes you need to buy an entire Bitcoin.

Yes, but we all know that it is not true.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is it true that this cryptocurrency/bitcoin boom poses a threat to Earth. on: June 12, 2021, 03:42:33 AM
The threat is in the form of increasing global warming which results in climate change. Generating Bitcoin requires a capable computer to solve complex mathematical puzzles and high electricity consumption. so that some countries prohibit mining for several other reasons such as in China and Iran some time ago. if so will bitacoin and others be able to run forever or is this just an excuse to change the green field to red..

There is no threat coming from bitcoin mining, LOL, it just began like 10 years ago and now they are saying that it has a dramatic effect on global warning and environment issues. Bitcoin is not the culprit here, many industrial nation since the 1900 has really contributed to the worsening and increase of the earth's temperature. This is just an excuse and I doubt that even 0.1% bitcoin is having a negative effect  on climate change.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Lomachenko vs Nakatani June 26 on: June 12, 2021, 03:05:53 AM

The odds is about at 1.06 - 6.96, in favor of Loma. So seems that the bookies is still favoring Loma here. He has the motivation to win this fight because of his previous loss. Because if he will lose again, don't know what is waiting for him in his boxing career. And if can win on this one, high likely that he may ask for a rematch with Lopez. Let's see, couple of weeks and we will see what performance he will give to his boxing fans.

It's not surprising at all, this fight is just to boost Loma again to come back since Loma could attract the crowd in a big fight. Though his opponent has a good record, he has not fought tough challengers on going to this fight, it should be Loma which is his toughest opponent and he should take this seriously as Loma is will focused to win this fight.

Nakatani fought Teofimo Lopez and gave him hell, and then he went from the canvass to knock out Felix Verdejo. So Nakatani has fought some of the best in this division, he his chin tested specially against Lopez. Of course Loma will be the favorite because he is one of the best technical boxers we have today. But I see Nakatani maybe winning some close rounds and maybe tag Loma a couple of times in this fight.

Will be a big test for Loma as this is his comeback back and eager to be in the discussion for p4p again and redeem himself.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: El salvador has become new history of bitcoin! on: June 12, 2021, 02:38:25 AM
^^ We will see if bitcoin will become problematic, Japan has adopted bitcoin legally, but we don't here IMF criticized them? So it seems that IMF has some narrative with this negative statements about El Salvador and Paraguay, yes they are poor country but they don't need to dictate what the government wanted to do to their economy, specially trying to become the first in Central America.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Does UBER accept bitcoin in 'El Salvador'? on: June 12, 2021, 01:57:05 AM
I wonder how popular is bitcoin payment in Uber in 'El Salvador'.
Maybe Uber will integrate bitcoin in their native mobile apps, now that 'El Salvador' made it legal tender.

If my memory serves me right, I saw an interview of the CEO of Uber saying that they are not going to accept crypto as payment method months ago. But we don't know, maybe his stance will change since almost every industry might accept crypto or bitcoin in the future.

So it's going to be complicated in El Salvador, maybe they will have to convert their fiat-crypto first before using Uber. Just like the rest of us is doing right now.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Tennis League All Thread on: June 12, 2021, 01:14:25 AM
Congrats for Djoko for winning over Nadal 3-1.
The scores were 6-3,3-6,6-7,2-6.
A semi-final of an exceptional level. I honestly would not have thought that Nadal could lose on his land.
Hats off to Djokovic, we can only bow, respect, well done Thank you for this moment top-flight tennis! Nadal's third defeat at Roland Garros .
If Djoko continues with this beast mode he would demolish Tsitsipas. Only that playing this game for 4 hours plus could affect his strengh for Finals.

This was an amazing match a beast mode like you said from novak djokovic no one can ever defeat him when he is playing like this. They are on another level from all other players. If he plays again like this he will crush tsisipas for sure probobly in straight sets. I dont think it will effect much because tsitsipas played a 5 set match as well

Indeed, one of the best match we have seen in recent memories, Djokovic went into God mode here, 30 minutes for just 1 point? wow. I thought that Nadal will win this match, however, he seems to be out of gas in the first set and then Djokovic took over the last 3, amazing game.

Same with the Tsitsipas vs Zverev, Stepanos took the first 2 set and then Zverev comes back in the next 2.

So the stage is set, Tsitsipas vs Djokovic. I wanted for Tsitsipas to win, but it will be very hard if Djokovic is playing God mode now.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Should i believe a person who said"my trust wallet get hacked" ? on: June 11, 2021, 03:40:09 AM
Since i joined the crypto world i didnt face any problem regrading wallets but i see that many people lose funds...somtimes the situation is normal like when somone share his private key or back up phrase in a scam website...but lets imagine that somone open a nwe wallet on trust and start using it without even keeping the there a way to enter his wallet and make transactions without even having the back up phrase?

Possible, you have to understand that there are a lot of newbies in this ecosystem. They just think of creating a wallet, not backing their phrases, or writing it down and saving it online. If the later is the case, then obviously, they can be hack, hence they will lost the money in whatever wallet they have.

That's why there is a learning curve here, and I would say that it's better to experience this first hand, so that you will know what to do in the future. And we all know that there are a lot of ways that the hackers can steal from us specially if we are not very very careful.
