Medyo nalilito lang ako ng kaunti kung paano ba ang mechanics pag-score.

Quote
2nd round NBA competition.

1) Guess which team will win in the series - correct prediction will get 5 points

2) Guess the correct score of the series - correct prediction will get 10 points

Mukhang tama naman ang mechanics na yan bisdak40. If based on that mechanics we can already see who will have a chance of winning in this competition. here's my computation.

Here's my computation as of now.

Top 1 : Eureka_07 with 20 points.
Top 2 : bisdak40 with 15 points.


In game 7 Clippers vs Nuggets.

Here's what will happen to the scoring.

If Clippers will win ;

Rosilito will earn 20 points.
bisdak40  will earn 20 points
Eureka_07 remain 20 points since no prediction posted for this series.


If Denver will win ;

 Eureka_07 will be the sole winner..


Good luck. I hope my computation is correct.

Sorry guys, di ako naka sali dito.

Nice update, finally it's official and we can start putting our bets for this fight.
I would go for the underdog, Lomachenko is a very technical fighter, believe 90% he will win this fight but I will try to play as the Loma hater for this fight.

Hopefully Lopez, this kind is not a "no mas" for Lomachenko. yeah, no match, my own term.  

A little update on this big fight coming on October, the papers has been signed and it's official that this would take place on October 17 at the MGM Grand.

Quote
Vasiliy Lomachenko and Teofimo ‘The Takeover’ Lopez put ink to paper for their highly anticipated multi-belt lightweight title unification clash, which will take place October 17 live on ESPN from the MGM Grand Conference Center (“The Bubble”) in Las Vegas. The event was formally announced on Tuesday by Top Rank and ESPN as part of a stacked October schedule with headliners featuring title fights or bouts with title implications on every weekend in the month.

Also added a poll, let's see who got lot of fans here in the forum.

Voted, I don't mind to be the first and only one person to vote for Lopez here.  Grin

50/50 vote so far.

It's a rare policy, usually authorities gives chance to first offence but you will not be given a chance if you commit the same offense again. But this is different, they are given a chance to operate again in the 3rd time, maybe this is just due to exemption since we are under the pandemic, people needs job, hence the authorities can lightly implement the law to help the economy recover, and save people from getting unemployed.

Maybe they should follow the system of Vegas as they have not reported to commit violation on the safety protocol.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Money from bank hacks rarely gets laundered through cryptocurrencies on: September 08, 2020, 12:22:16 PM
Obviously it's hard to do money laundering on fiat to bitcoin, the first step alone, your transacting party would already know where the money is coming and that could be trace easily. Anything that goes online transferred or pass through a regulated platform can be trace by the authorities as they have all the platforms under them required to cooperate with their request or demand.

Money laundering on cash will usually pass through a casino but then authorities are still smart, they can trace it.

Just like the The Bangladesh Bank Heist, the money were trace that the hacker was laundered in a casino and cash were returned.
This was very famous in our country last 2018 IIRC.

6  Economy / Economics / Re: Winklevoss The Case for $500K Bitcoin on: September 08, 2020, 08:33:06 AM
Quote
Bitcoin has already made significant ground on gold — going from whitepaper to over $200 billion in market capitalization in under a decade. Today, the market capitalization of above ground gold is conservatively $9 trillion. If we are right about using a gold framework to value bitcoin, and bitcoin continues on this path, then the bull case scenario for bitcoin is that it is undervalued by a multiple of 45. Said differently, the price of bitcoin could appreciate 45x from where it is today, which means we could see a price of $500,000 U.S. dollars per bitcoin.

Why is he so sure that Bitcoin will "continue to this path"?What if something happens and Bitcoin doesn't continue to this path?A better altcoin gets invented,a mass government ban hits the Bitcoin industry,a natural disaster destroys the human civilization.He makes the same mistake every trader is making.Trying the predict the price by looking at the past performance of Bitcoin.The fact that Bitcoin grew from 0 to 200 billion in 10 years doesn't mean that Bitcoin will grow from 200 billion to 10 trillion in the next 10 years.

They are holding bitcoin, big chunk of the total supply, so how do you expect them to think?

We may or may not believe, its up to us, but regardless, people would also look at their statement and prediction as a bias prediction as it serves their personal interest at best. If you read the reason behind why they call that price, maybe it would change your mind, and as for me, I would not limit my imagination on how much bitcoin could reach since we are talking of bitcoin that does not have an infinite supply.


But is it really a biased opinion because they hold Bitcoin, or is it they hold Bitcoin because they see it for what it truly is? A ground-breaking evolution of money and how we define it?
Same, they believe that bitcoin is revolutionary but there are people who does not believe on it and it's hard to convince them even if you will tell them facts about the potential of bitcoin, so they'll call people who believe and rooting for bitcoin bias, it doesn't matter anyway, in this world, we have different belief and opinion but we will find out who is right or wrong.


"Money" will never be the same again after Bitcoin. Cool

That's what I believe too, and I am bias with that.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Betting on bitcoin against Central Bank Digital Currencies on: September 08, 2020, 07:47:06 AM
I find it very interesting  as we have been taking about how banks will struggle due to continues printing of money especially to bail out the pandemic.
What changes it will achieve when a central bank currency goes digital, nothing happen if the country is still printing out money in any form, i am not going to compare between the central banks and the cryptocurrency space as both has different applications and i started using a decentralized currency for my freedom and privacy which i will never get in a centralized currency and both has its advantages and disadvantages.

You'll enjoy that freedom and privacy now but in the long run when massive adoption happens, all transactions will become subject to regulation by the government. What I'm saying is not how it's use because we know they are both digital currencies and CBDC is even better as it's centralized, meaning, it's faster and you might enjoy a small fee compared to using bitcoin, what I am emphasizing is its value in the long run, real value because inflation will hit us but bitcoin will remain to a coin that is good to hedge that inflation.

Seriously? I mean, it's too early to tell, Polkadot is a good coin but Ethereum has been proven a good asset as it has survive many times in the toughest situation. Every time there's a new hype coin, some people would think they will be the best altcoin and will beat ETH and even think will beat bitcoin but it has to be tested through time as not all the time the market is bullish.

$38,862,051,232 is ETH's marketcap while $3,752,489,511 for Polkadot, that's too far away mate.

Bitcoin is different, it's not a fiat currency where we compare with other currencies that is tied up with their economy.

Some countries even consider bitcoin as a properly, not a currency.. but anyway, it's nice to know that bitcoin marketcap has already grew a lot since it's inception, and that will continue to rise since bitcoin demands continues while supply doesn't increase, which is opposite to fiat currencies.

Bitcoin is in a completely different category, I dont think that these can be compared..

Agree with you.
10  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bearish! on: September 07, 2020, 11:13:35 PM
Did we predict what happen in the past? No, because bitcoin is unpredictable, no matter how many experts would say that this is the price that we will see in the x future, please don't believe on them, better make your own prediction especially for short term as bitcoin is more volatile.

Bearish or bullish, it doesn't matter if you are into "HODL", but if you are day trading, every significant movement matters.

So I must say that no one can ascertain if the price will fall to $9k or lower, it's only by your own prediction since you are the one taking the risk.

If you want to see more predictions and suggestion, better look at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.0, it's a very active thread.

All transactions sent to the address are already confirmed. Can you tell us how much BTC you sent to the address so we can verify?
Knowing if the transactions were successfully sent to the address can be verified through blockchain, that's pretty basic and being a newbie is not an excuse.

Forget about ICO, they have been obsolete already, their popularity is gone, it's now time for the DeFi and IEO, so choose from the two if you want to invest, or you can invest with existing projects now that are already listed in exchanges with good liquidity, but please no to ICO even how promising they are as they could steal your money.

Been lurking here since 2013 but never created a account.

You should know what's going on with the ICO market already.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Not so far from getting BTC globally accepted! Pornhub now accepts BTC & LTC. ;) on: September 07, 2020, 10:37:12 AM
Quite funny as we are talking of porn industry but this has a serious good effect to the market.

Demands will continue for crypto as the demand continues to rise for the porn industry as well, and AFAIK, porn industry is also a billion dollar industry, so that's a big contribution to the market, and this is just one site, one of the biggest in the porn industry, so probably we are going to see more sites adding bitcoin as their payment method.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Do you need a coin that does not have negative volatility? on: September 07, 2020, 09:42:17 AM
Do you need a coin that does not have negative volatility?

1. Is it possible?
2. If not possible, why?
Questions of an amateur, what do you think?
What do you mean by negative volatility? Volatility means the price will go up and down, but if you weigh the overall movement of bitcoin for instance, you can say it's positive especially for long term.

For other coins, it's hard to find that as if bitcoin is already volatile, altcoins are more volatile.


Not a stablecoin pegged to the dollar or fiat.

There's no volatility for stable coins, so for sure this is not what you are trying to imply or ask.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Casimero vs Micah - Sept 26 on: September 07, 2020, 03:07:16 AM
I consider this a tune-up fight for Cssimero for his much-awaited match against Inoue Micah is still not ripe to become a champion I could be wrong because he is also an experienced boxer and an undefeated one, but when you compared who both fighter's fights Casimero gets the better of the comparison.

Yup, this maybe a tune-up fight for him as he is already looking ahead on the fight with Nery, i just hope that he won't take this fight lightly as there are so many negative things that may happen if a boxers won't train very hard because of the thinking that they are fighting a nobody. As for a possible fight with Inoue, i don't think that it will happen very soon. Top Rank is building the career of this Japanese monster and fighting Casimero this time of his career may derail the plan of Bob Arum for this kid.

Right, a tune-up fight for him, but it is very dangerous fight. I guess it shows the character of Casimero, sure Micah is unknown, but he is a live underdog here. So Casimero shouldn't be confident and look for the Nery fight. They can have all the trash talking they want whether in social media or boxing media if Casimero knocks out Micah and send the signal to Nery and Inoue.

Tune-up  fight words is not a good world, it's underestimating Micah the opponent, though Casimero here is the clear favorite but we should not underestimate Micah, he is a legit fighter which has good record and we only heard more on Casimero when he beats Tete, so there's more fights to come and he needs to prove that he can beat any fighter that a promoter would throw to him.

Also, we have to remember that casimero is under the guidance of Manny Pacman, maybe his best fighter in his MP promotion, so I'm sure this guy does not underestimate his opponent and he is a discipline fighter.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Betting on bitcoin against Central Bank Digital Currencies on: September 07, 2020, 02:48:46 AM
To be honest, I'm afraid the average person might just use what the government officially issues. And whether or not governments would fully do away with bills and coins, the replacement is actually no better. Digital fiat currencies make monitoring of transactions easier on the part of the authorities.
I am seeing the same, we can bet on bitcoin but it doesn't mean that it will replace the fiat system, the benefit on betting on bitcoin is not actually as a payment system but the value of money since according to its movement, by demand the value rises which is not a guarantee for fiat system as they can continuously print money.

But if only the average Joe is concerned even a little bit of his privacy and freedom. If he is at least moderately critical of how the financial system is being ran on the basis of a handful of people's faulty decisions, he might be very grateful Bitcoin is an open option. 

I guess there are people who would understand how important bitcoin is and how it is so valuable in the future.
Slowly, the corrupt government practices will be revealed and if we don't see it coming, we will suffer its effect, so as early as now, I guess we should start considering to safeguard our money making bitcoin as the best option.

So I came across with this topic "Bitcoin or Central Bank Digital Currencies: Which is the Better Bet?" and I find it very interesting  as we have been taking about how banks will struggle due to continues printing of money especially to bail out the pandemic.

Quote
One way or another, digital currency is in our future. Since Bitcoin’s blockchain launched in 2009, more and more converts have become purists and accepted the idea that a decentralized currency without an authority figure overseeing its use is not only a distinct possibility, but possibly the way of the future.

That being said, people who are truly sold on the idea of living off of Bitcoin or any other decentralized currency are still in the minority. Most people are comfortable using credit and debit cards nowadays for cashless transactions, and many more still will likely support the idea of a government merely doing away with paper money altogether and offering its citizens a digital currency alternative that is still tied to central banks.

Odds are most people will use the latter if governments make it easy to do so. But the real question is, what is the better bet in the long run? Is it going to be easier or more fruitful to use Bitcoin and decentralized currencies? Or is the average person just going to settle for using government money that no longer requires paper or coins?

Answering these questions requires taking a slightly deeper look at the evolution of money and the idea of transferring value between one another.

So what do you think, is it right to start betting bitcoin now?
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bounce Back is coming? on: September 06, 2020, 10:30:35 PM
not for now, we will see BTC in the range of 9000, maybe it will be deeper if the next resistance can be broken.
I'm sure people will think that too because right now the market is in a deep downturn.


I am not seeing that bad crash this time and may be it may stay in 10k range for some time and to me seems to be a good buying opportunity here and those who were waiting for this dip its good time to enter market and again it will bounce back quickly to 11k upwards. Do not want to miss this bull ride from here.

Your analysis is on point the crash can't go below $10K+ a strong support is at that zone which might reject the price although some analyst predicted the decline to reach $9K of course the price had been consolidating above $10K an indication that it might not dump further, a good opportunity for buyers to enter the market already the price had dipped.
Yes, bitcoin dumped at $9k but bounce back easily at $10k.
There will be no dump at a lower price, prediction is quite accurate IMO as bitcoin is slowly getting back on it bullish track.

The  next pump or bounce back is expected to reach between $12K and $13K.

That's something we, bullish on bitcoin are looking forward too, bitcoin did breached at $12k but fall again, so maybe this time it will break a higher resistance and would reach at $13k, that's a new high for the past 2 years if that will happen, and remember, next month we will be entering in the crucial stage to test if the market would end up bullish year.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: NBA 2019-2020 betting on: September 06, 2020, 10:12:12 PM
Been away for a week as I have traveled, but today I'm back and I'm starting to bet again.

What's your pick on the games tomorrow guys?

I like the Heat to finish the bucks, so I'll get HEAT -2, I'm confident with this. (usually I lose when I'm confident)>

Looking at my crazy losing streak, I'm just bound to tail you on this and the -5.5 on Lakers as well.

I'm probably going to try the overs again today,  Angry

Bucks and Heat looking good to go over after the 3rd quarter but they slowed down in the 4th, so if there's no OT, this might again end under.

Also, bucks has a chance to win this game.

There's an OT, so the over bet will win.

@Harkorede , you must thank Donte DiVincenzo for missing one free throw, he could have give the Bucks their first win if he hadn't missed that FT shot, now, they are at the risk of getting sweep again as the scoring is very tight. BTW, looking at the game, there's a possibility that a double OT will happen.  Grin Grin

Congratulations on your over bet. It's a win.
20  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin Tanks to $10.4K; ETH Market Dominance at 2020 High on: September 06, 2020, 09:35:11 PM
As I see, BTC is following the stockmarket trajectory this time. The markets are down too. Just brace yourself and HODL

Exactly. I must have repeated this at least 5 times in different threads where clueless people were writing stupid questions like "is bitcoin dying?" or "did the whale manupulate the market?".
The whale could manipulate the market but bitcoin is not dying or will not die.


The stock market regained a lot after the corona crash and people are taking profits now especially since a second wave of corona is expected to appear. Bitcoin was rejected at 12k and is not strong enough to ignore stocks and go up.

ETH might be high in dominance but it still falls when Bitcoin falls. It's too weak to ignore Bitcoin like all other major altcoins.

ETH went down from $480 to $350 so it lost more than BTC. How is that a strong, dominant coin?

You are right, bitcoin falls, ETH falls or the rest of the coins falls, that's what we have seen before the price started to recover again.
Currently, bitcoin dominance is 57%, that's still huge compared to ETH which only has 12%, so even if ETH dominance will rise, it can never get close to bitcoin's dominance as it's not only ETH that has rise, lots of coins as well.
