I think majority here as small to medium gamblers? at least me personally, I don't consider myself as whales or big bag holders.

So for us, we can still have some fun and then win if we get lucky. We don't need to be big bettors, just enough for us to bet and then see how it goes. The problem is that there are gamblers who wanted to hit big jackpot and see they play with too much money that they can't afford to lose. And there are no foul-proof strategy, not 100%, if will still be based on luck specially the martingale system.

GGG was asked about retired and this is his official response:

Quote
ď[Retirement] is a hard question. Itís hard to say. Everyday can bring something new. Even if we just look ahead past this fight, weíll see what opportunities come our way from the financial and attractiveness of a potential fight. I will make my decision based on the situation and when itís a good time,Ē said Golovkin.
  Source.

So for now, even if he lost again, I don't think he will retire, he answer it brutally honest, if there is a good opportunity and the money is right then why not? So for now even at age 40, his mind still thinks that he can go and fight after a trilogy, but it will be sort of a day to day basis.

That would be the best approach, I agree, he just need to look at his performance against Canelo before making the abrupt decision.

If he wins, then obviously he will have to fight. If he lose but in another very close and controversial fight, we might see him fighting again. Specially, coming from his mouth that it will all depends on the financials. What kind of money they are willing to offer to him even if he is already 40 years old? To another young guy and then he be the stepping stone?

Which misconceptions do you know and what are you doing to debunk it?

How about crypto being "used by criminals" misconception?

For sure they might have been using it, but I don't think they can hide all their illicit activities as the government are really active looking for this criminals in the dark market or dark web and even close it. Even those cyber criminals are also a target for FBI. So it's going to be a cat and mouse it, but cash is still king for this criminals. So no, criminals are not using crypto because it is still traceable contrary to what others believed.
4  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC price suddenly dropped from $ 31K on: July 03, 2022, 11:12:08 PM
I think the cause of the crypto market crash and the bitcoin price dropping from the $31k to $21k price level was the massive sell-off by investors amid rising inflation concerns. In addition, many investors also continue to stay away from crypto assets so that all crypto assets experience a very severe decline in price.

I donít think this is the proper reason for which the price has fallen so down.
I mean at first the war impacted a lot in the price, and then the price started falling.
When the price fell down, many of the newbie traders started to panic and sold the coins in such a petty price for which the price again fell very low and hence resulting in a bear market.
I might be wrong with the reason, but thatís what i guess is the primary reason.
Letís see what other members have opinions on this.

There is no single reason, it could be the combination on things on global level like the war you mentioned. And it's not just bitcoin market, but all financial market as well, they are all down this year.

Newbies are going to panic sell or panic buy, (doesn't want to missed the FOMO), it's understandable at first. but they should learn their lessons and then become experience traders. And hopefully, their bear market will be a wake up call for them, just continue to accumulate bitcoin and not be bothered by the negativity around.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Kazuto Ioka vs Donnie Nietes II on: July 03, 2022, 10:50:35 PM
The only advantage of Ioka is the homecourt advantage. Nietes knows how to play with this guy. Age is not a factor.

The factor is that Ioka is active on the ring. That's his advantage over Nietes that even though he won his last year's fight, he still rested for 24 months prior to that. But I hope that Nietes last fight wakes up his usual form and does some regular training since then.

I just don't know why the fight ends up in Japan. It seems biased.

Filipino though love to fight in Japan, or at least love to travel and willing to fight Ioka on his home court. If if my memory serves me right, there are Japanese promoters who handles Filipino as well. So there is a connection between the two countries and Japanese are not as hostile as let's say when you fight Mexicans in their home soil or any countries in South or Central America.

Their last fight is in Macau, maybe you can call it a neutral ground.

Jalen Brunson - Losing Jalen Brunson was not the smart idea for the Mavericks and Brunson had gone to the New York Knicks, this is a win for Brunson and a loss for Mavericks,

The Dallas Mavericks won. Why they should keep a player that there's no intention of playing with them? Brunson chooses a team that is not a playoffs contender so it all end up with the money. Dallas offered him with $45-50M 3-years contract and that was just a reasonable contact but he wants more that's why he take the Knicks' offer of $100M+ for 3 years. Imagine he's already on a good team but chooses the worst team. Dallas didn't match the contract as that was just a waste of the salary cap where they can use it to get more role players. Brunson is good but he's not Luka.

Someone also posted here that Brunson's hometown is New York and his father was part of the coaching staff of the Knicks. It means it's a good decision for the Mavericks to let go of Brunson as they already did their best to make him stay. Brunson was really going to Knicks but just waiting if the Mavericks will pay him more.

I think that's Brunson target, and  maybe it was finalized through his father and that is why the Knicks have traded some of their players to clear some cap and then get Brunson. Mavs can't do anything about it anyways. And yeah, we might say they Mavs won in this trade, because we don't know if Brunson is going to play like an All star when he moves to New York. Mavs can get another player and developed him to be their next point guard.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The Opposite always happens on: July 02, 2022, 10:53:03 PM
Everyone is saying that the BTC bottom isn't in yet, this is literally what everyone is saying and most times the opposite of what people are expecting is what always happens in the crypto space, do not sleep on 10k per BTC, it may never happen.

Because no one knows the what is the bottom, so they make predictions based on the current flow, i.e. technical analysis. And maybe it shows that it's possible that $14k, or $10k can be the lowest.

However, the lowest so far is $17k, again we don't know if this is it, or there will be news in the future that can bring the market to another bloodshed. So there is this chance that the price could go or it will not, simple as that.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing] Mark Magsayo vs Rey Vargas WBC Featherweight Title (July 9) on: July 02, 2022, 10:31:33 PM
The odds now out, at least on Stake.com. I thought odds will be released 1-2 days before the fight but it's early as expected.

Perhaps the bookies have listen to us that's why they released the odds this early.

The odds is close. Not even a slight but really close. We can't say who's the Favorite or Underdog.

This is a rare moment where a Champion do have a close odds with his Challenger. It's like Magsayo is being put as an underrated here. I'm now aggressively hoping that Magsayo will pull a win here to recognized as one of the best.

That is good though, but it seems that there are a lot of supporters here for Mark Magsayo. Yes, I would say he is underrated, 0 defeat beat Russell Jr. (although injured), becomes a champion but then listed as the underdog in the beginning. If he wins by knockout, or put a clinic against a tall Vargas, for sure he will get the recognition he deserves.

Just in as news: Looney stays with the Warriors on a 3-year contract for a $25.5M deal.
(https://www.si.com/nba/warriors/news/kevon-looney-re-signs-3-year-deal-with-warriors)

That's already a good deal, he is not a superstar but he showed hard work during the playoffs that made the team the NBA champion. I like the management decision of making him stay he really deserves to be in the Warriors because he has a heart of a champion.

By the way, are there any news about the Warriors adding some big man in their roster through trade?

Honestly, it's already a good team for Looney, to stay with the Warriors for 3 years. I guess if the Warriors can win even 1 out of those 3 years that he is in, it's already a good return. And it's not about the money for a player like Looney, it's about the chemistry and the camaraderie as he was part of the team in their last championship run.

Yes, he might not be as dominant as the other center in the league, but he gets the job done. I think it was against Dallas that he got some good games, in both rebound (offensive and defensive) and scoring wise. And not just that, I think he could be the one who has the most screens set on either Steph, Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson to hit that outside shot. So it doesn't matter who is on the floor, Looney knows his position, low or even high pick and roll.

That's correct, it's also about winning a championship and Looney will never forget in his life that he was able to play with one of the greatest players in the NBA which is Stephen Curry. He is not not a type of a dominant big man but he always play hard and follow his role, he is such a professional player who always value teamwork over personal interest.

Yeah, Looney is just calm when he plays that's why he will not receive a technical foul, but at the same time, he is also very competitive, if we still remember, he had some big games during the playoffs because of his aggressive play, he slowly transform from just a rebounder into an offensive player as well.
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Kazuto Ioka vs Donnie Nietes II on: July 02, 2022, 11:08:03 AM
This one is good, we don't have a champion in the bantamweight division anymore but let's hope Nietes still got this.

He has been consistently defending his belt but I don't know if his age will not affect his performance, let's just hope the best for him and hope that he will win the fight.

Who is the favorite in this fight? May I know.

Not sure who is going to be the favorite in this fight, but I reckon it might be the Japanese, because (1) he is the champion (2) Nietes is 40 years old and not that active.

Anyhow, I think he can still fight, he is one of the best champion that the Philippines had, just doesn't have the exposure in the US and obviously the weight class. Looking forward to watch his fight, (but I wouldn't bet).
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The future of metaverse in crypto space on: July 01, 2022, 11:08:55 PM
Can you boldly hold metaverse projects for 2024&2025 halving season? I believe that metaverse hype isn't over since many metaverse projects haven't completed yet, 99% of them are on BETA phase, what do you think? If project like Metahero survive through bear market it will be big in future, profitability wise, so what do you think about metaverse future.

You already said it yourself, the hype is still there so meaning may investors are still going to flock and invest on them whether we are in a bear market.

So for now, I would say chances are they are to survived. But its survival rate does not depend on themselves, it depends on whether we will see another hype in the future. If something new comes along they obviously, some investors might get out of metaverse and then go on the latest craze. That's how everything works in crypto unfortunately.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Ryan Garcia vs Javier Fortuna - July 16 on: July 01, 2022, 10:47:54 PM
@Vaculin, I hope this time we will really see a big knockout win by Garcia.

Sometimes, what he said is not going to happen in the actual fight, but I love his confidence, that only means he was disappointed on himself for not winning by KO in his first fight this year, so he wants to correct that with an impressive win.

For sure, he might go for a KO win here, that's what we all wanted to see from Ryan, just like what he did to Duno (a promising boxer from Philippines, but then he knock him out).

So he needs to be impressive here, hand speed and then his powerful left hook, a perfect punch and it's over for Fortuna. He also needs to show that he has learn new techniques from Goosen too, maybe a stiff jab like his boss, Oscar dela Hoya during his prime.
13  Economy / Gambling / Re: Looking for perfect slot base casino on: July 01, 2022, 02:08:45 PM
Alot of users here have suggested I play on multi-chain casinos that offer slots games as one of their games, but what am looking for is how to see single and slot dedicated sites I have my reasons for this.

Just weird man, I mean crypto based casino will have a lot of choices not just slots. And even land based and traditional casinos have options as well not only slots.

So  it will be interesting if you can find one, whether online or offline casinos. And business wise, if will not be good for casino to just have one kind of games.

Even in obscure casino that I played, there will be slots and then other game too.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2023 NBA Season on: July 01, 2022, 11:48:32 AM
The drama will always attached to Ben Simmons, no matter where he goes, I mean the way he severed his ties with the Sixers that drag them for the whole season. So I guess it's more on the mentality of Ben now, no one can help him except himself. Durant could be a good mentor, but what if Ben is missing those free throws and becomes a liability then? So it will haunt him until he improved his free throws or even take a good shot outside so that he can silence his critics.

How can you say that Simmons will still be like that? It's just the first time he was traded to another team so what reference can we look at?

I would agree that this is the first time that we have seen him traded, but the way he severe his tie with his former team? doesn't sit well, even majority of us thinks that he has a problem.

It does, that's another problem if Ben Simmons will still be like that while on the Brooklyn Nets. He likes that trade and really looks forwards to it. He gets rid of his problem already and he should be good now. New environment, new teammates, another start. I don't see any reason why he should make some drama again not unless another personal problems between him and one of his teammates occur.

Who knows, that how he was in the Sixers, even Joel and the coach has his back. But when he doesn't want to play anymore with them because of the criticism, then that's where the problem started. It's good that he got his wish, but this has set a precedent for him and his career.

And don't worry. Steve Nash already has a good portfolio and experience dealing with a Diva. I think it's even hard to handle the other one compare to doing some good talks with Ben Simmons. The other one has lots of egos to deal with compared to Ben Simmons who I think just needs a new environment to play with.

Yeah, Harden is out already, KD opting to get out of his contract, Irving most likely will be traded as well. So not sure as well if that is a good portfolio as far as Nash handling this diva players.

Yesterday I spoke with my coworkers brother over speaker phone who works for a crypto marketing company. He was convinced that Craig Wright is the actual satoshi and that Bitcoin Satoshi's vision was completely undervalued and that eventually it is going to be the number 1 coin. I just couldn't help but laugh inside my head, but then proceeded to tell him "ya never now maybe you could be right" just for the sake of being polite and not starting an argument lol. I didn't want to be rude, but I do think that this guy was a little crazy. Do people actually think that BSV has potential in the future? I thought we were past that whole fail of a forked BTC coin BSV and also Craig Wright being Satoshi..... LOL asking for a friend...

It is what as you have describe, your friend is working on a crypto marketing company.

And all they do is hype thing, and everyone knows here that Craig Wright is not Satoshi, and maybe your friend didn't know the whole back story.

BSV is dead already and there's no way that it can be revived.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing] Canelo vs Golovkin 3 (September 17) on: June 30, 2022, 07:39:33 PM
And you got that right, of course, Canelo has more chances to win against GGG in the ring. He has the advantage against the ready-to-retire GGG and he has to win even on their upcoming trilogy if there's no hype if he wins it because he can't afford to lose for the 2nd time this year but he still should be careful against GGG though because even the man is much older than him, GGG can always upset any opponent he'd face even if that name is Saul Canelo Alvarez.

Yes, it seems to me that the big problem of all professional athletes is that they do not leave during the peak of their fame and athletic form, leaving feelings of joy and pride in the hearts of fans. Instead, they continue to participate in fights and cause disappointment, I hope that the upcoming Canelo vs Golovkin fight will be an exception.

Of course, it's their job that they love, so it's hard for them to leave at the peak, maybe Michael Jordan because he feels that there is no more challenges. But in a sports like boxing, wherein you physically trying to fight against each other, it's hard to let go of that specially if you think even at age 40 that you can beat a young champion. Although this fight should have happen years ago when Golovkin is not that old. But at least we will see one final great fight for him if ever he chooses to retire.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2023 NBA Season on: June 30, 2022, 11:50:43 AM
My favourite team in NBA are currently Brooklyn Nets. It depends on what team Durant goes to actually.  Grin  However Nets haven't been doing very well for a long time. They have made signings like Seth Curry and Ben Simmons to change the starting five a little. Because they weren't playing that much well before. Seth Curry adapted to the team and started performing nicely. I hope to see his contribution getting bigger next season. However I have big doubts about Ben Simmons. He has had a lasting injury and I don't know how strong he will be able to perform by next season.
I was hoping this time there would be no more drama from Ben Simmons. That's what I want to see and help out Durant posting more wins for the Brooklyn Nets. This will prove if the Nets management really made a good decision in that recent trade for James Harden. The unanswered question was if the Nets knew about that back issue of Ben that had been coming back over and over. I hope they did.
Seth Curry is the big bonus from that trade though, that brother could make it rain 3's sometimes but his strength really comes from his defense. I wish they could maximize that.

The drama will always attached to Ben Simmons, no matter where he goes, I mean the way he severed his ties with the Sixers that drag them for the whole season. So I guess it's more on the mentality of Ben now, no one can help him except himself. Durant could be a good mentor, but what if Ben is missing those free throws and becomes a liability then? So it will haunt him until he improved his free throws or even take a good shot outside so that he can silence his critics.

^ Maybe that's a mistake on Fortuna side to bad mouth Garcia using his "mental" state issues. Fortuna claim that Garcia duck him in their first fight and hide on the reason of that.

Quote
ďHeís talking a lot of trash to me, saying that I made an excuse with my mental health, that it wasnít real, that I was a coward for it, and Iím a duck, I just want to avoid him. Well, I believe when heís in that ring with me that heíll find out real soon that Ďoh, thereís nothing scared about this guy.íĒ

https://www.badlefthook.com/2022/6/23/23179821/ryan-garcia-warns-javier-fortuna-not-quit-next-fight-dazn-boxing-news-2022

So this might be something personal for Garcia now that Fortuna touch a sensitive topic about Garcia and then make fun of it.

Well, that sounds pretty interesting to me. I'd like to see Garcia so fired up especially now that he got more reasons to end the fight with an impressive results unlike what he got last time against Tagoe. Garcia just needed some extra push to get him back on track and unfortunately, Fortuna is the one who gave him that extra push he needed and that will make him regret soon. I just hope that Garcia can really back his words.



He is always fired up, just see how he goes on Tank during his fight against Romero. He even goes as far as to talk to Leonard Ellerbe of Mayweather promotions and ask for a fight with Davis. So we will see in his second fight coming if he is on track or not. So he better perform above against Fortuna, show us his power and should win by knockout.

He's like that I remember his faceoff against Haney after his fight he is hype and wants to fight Haney but of course, his promoters know better they think he is not ready to fight Haney at that time we can only say he is ready when he signed the contract against Tank but now he is all talks, Canelo is right when he says that he has not achieved anything yet.
If he beat Fortuna he should force his promoters to fight Tank because Tank is always ready to fight anybody.


He is young and maybe really wanted to fight anyone in his division, maybe that's the kid personality that others around him mistaken for being arrogant. But Canelo is right, he should be accomplishing more and focus on his boxing skills so that he can achieved more and then maybe he can face the other champions. 135 lbs is one of the most hype division apart from the 147 lbs. So Garcia should make his name their, but he shouldn't overlook Javier Fortuna, he needs a knock out win here in my opinion.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: WHY ITS SO POSITIVE THIS BEARMARKET. on: June 29, 2022, 04:54:46 PM
Bearmarket is a good opportunity for anyone from Newbies to Whales to buy, profit opportunities can be easy if we buy when the bearmarket, the important thing after buying is to be patient and hold according to plan, if patiently waiting then we will profit.
I think it is worth taking into account the fact that only a few will grow out of a thousand shitcoins. You should pay attention to major coins like bitcoin and bnb. I have already made a lot of reckless investments in order to believe in the success of shitcoins.
Bitcoin, bnb, ethereum are coins that have greater potential than other coins.
Maybe some coins that are not well known can increase in highly but I think that's because a pump is coming to the coin.
But only the coins that have the potential to really increase and it's still a mystery which coin will increase first.

It's the practice that whales have been doing for years in crypto, you will be at lost at how this manipulators can play the price of this meme and shitcoins and take advantage of some noobs and take their money away.

Be wary of enticing offers from one or more projects that say their coins will increase because, in reality, the coin can not do that.

And they know how to entice us, with their too good to be offer, and as much as we put warnings there, chances are new investors are going to fall for this trick.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing] Canelo vs Golovkin 3 (September 17) on: June 29, 2022, 12:06:34 PM
^^ Canelo though looks very angry at his every opponent, but against Bivol though, there seems to be no trash talk but look at what happen to him.

Just the typical Canelo, he wanted to impose himself as the better fighter and if he hears insults and trash talk, he resolved it through pushing and punching. But Bivol? he can't intimidate the guy because he is bigger than him.

But we can' compare the two, I know it, and Canelo and GGG really hate each other that even at the start of the press conference, you can see dislike. And the feeling is mutual, although GGG seems to be subdue but for sure we want to get his win against Canelo.

They will definitely translate their hatred towards each other in the ring. GGG will have still a good fight inside of him and it's better be on Canelo in their trilogy.

And one thing I noticed is that even if Canelo is coming from a lost, there are still a lot of hype in this fight.
