1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I can't wait until I can pay using bitcoin at the supermarket on: September 28, 2020, 06:51:28 PM
     Well, there are probably a lot of crypto currency enthusiasts if not all that would really want to use any crypto currency as means of salary and payment since it seems so easy and futuristic or maybe because we are just so into this industry and want mass adoption that much that we really want to experience spending and getting paid with bitcoin or any other crypto currency in a day to day basis. I sure hope that day comes within my lifetime.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BTC Twitter Mentions Dropped To 2 Year Low on: September 28, 2020, 05:52:06 PM
     If you think about it deeply, the number of mentions about bitcoins in twitter decreasing is really quite serious. I mean, just think about it, when a star is famous, a lot of people are interested which then results to people talking about it anywhere especially on social media sites. So the decrease of bitcoin mention in twitter may mean that the people interested about it is also decreasing. I just hope that this really isn't the case and that the decrease of mention means nothing more.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The meme that started it all - "Magic internet money Join Us!" on: September 28, 2020, 05:11:34 PM
     Plain and simple. Not too much effort but not less also, just the right amount. Very playful and eye catching. All the people who have seen it at the time can clearly say it was an interesting and fun image with simplicity all over but despite these, the message was clear. It truly is perfectly fit at that time. A simple meme that made a huge impact that stretches to this day.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What were the precursors of Bitcoin? on: September 28, 2020, 04:39:51 PM
     I really love reading about bitcoin history and how people veiw this or their opinion about the event or the things that happened to bitcoin which have contributed little or a lot to what bitcoin is today. In the pre-bitcoin times there were actually quite a few concepts that are pretty similar with the concept of bitcoin which may have been where the concept of bitcoin was also derived from. Good read op.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Kucoin hacker moved the stolen BTC. on: September 28, 2020, 04:01:17 PM
     I kinda feel bad for the hacker(s) for this though. All the efforts that they have invested into hacking the exchange (kucoin) all went to waste. And all because of their impatience. What a shame. They already had it, byt lost it. Had they waited a few months or even a year, when talks about the hacking has cooled down and people are not looking into it that much, they would've pulled it off. Tsk tsk. Great job for kucoin tho.

     Actually, I have seen quite a few with the same concept that you have described. The only problem is that I am not sure about the legitimacy of the ones I saw that offer such service since I never experienced using these kind of services even once since I am quite afraid of being scammed or whatever. Just to be clear though, even if this is the case, I am pretty positive that in the coming years, a lot more will appear and would be 100% legit. Specially when the Bitcoin or any crypto currency in this industry gets more and more known in various parts of the world(more mainstream I think?).
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Judge Orders Bitfinex to Turn Over Tether Loan Documents (Again) on: September 21, 2020, 04:20:49 PM
     Man, this is quite a dilemma for bitfinex. Imagine what the effects would be or what would happen with the whole crypto currency industry if bitfinex would ever lose this case. Just thinking about it makes my imagination go wild and scares me a lot. But at the same time though, I really cannot say that the people opposing bitfinex are entirely wrong. I mean, bitfinex is really quite shady. But maybe, just maybe, they really do have the assets to back those tether. If things like these happening makes small investors like me worry, imagine those who have invested a lot or most of their assets? That's just scary.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why has no-one done a crypto Ebay? on: September 21, 2020, 11:44:34 AM
     On the surface there may be some which are good but on the deep/dark web (I don't know the exact term) there actually quite a lot. But a lot of those are quite shady though. Despite the case, there are also good and legit ones there which may not be without fees as what you may mean, but actually better than ebay rates. Do take note though that the fees depend on the site or the type of items you want to sell/buy. Although I highly doubt that big illegal ones that sell illegal things are still freely operating if there are, then it would be hard to find. Anyways, just sharing. Hope it helps.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 22 Bitcoin interesting facts on: September 21, 2020, 10:32:37 AM
     Most of these facts I have already heard of or read from someone else or from various articles online. Even on some videos of people talking about crypto currency as a whole. But some I haven't seen yet and I am having a good time reading about these other facts that I have never encountered yet. Also those good responses from other members have great stuff too. It's never dull to learn something new everyday specially about things you like. In thus case, about Bitcoin. Smiley
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Exactly 10 years ago Someone did a transfer of 184M BTC on: September 14, 2020, 04:15:23 PM
     Well, this has happened in the past. At a tike when bitcoin is still in its young and starting phase. But even then, the bug problem was easily resolved by the responsible people behind the bitcoin's codes. Which is why I think that exploiting bugs as these if there are still any would be pretty hard. Although it may not he impossible, a person who'd pull off such a feat would be better off earning more in advertising his skills and getting jobs that would gain him better benefits.
11  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Newbee: Is bitcoin a real currency on: September 14, 2020, 02:48:48 PM
     Look op, the word currency has its very own definition. And bitcoin being called an online currency in this industry means that it fits the criteria of being a currency. It may not be the traditional currency that you are used to or accustomed to but it really is a currency online. It just so happens that it can also be called as a store of value like gold. Which is still pretty logical since bitcoin can really be used to store value. And in the past, gold has also been used as a currency. So yeah. That's how I understand it.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Aviatrade accepting BTC as payment for $40 million Gulfstream private jet on: September 14, 2020, 12:35:43 PM
     It would be nice if it were "ONLY BUYABLE" with crypto currencies. But that would be irrational lol. Seriously though, it would be a better idea to out it in bidding and the only accepted bids would be crypto currencies. I can only imagine how fun it would be and how many silent whales would reveal themselves just to get a hold of this aircraft. Stil though, I think there would be ay least a few whales who would be interested in this aircraft.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Points, Miles, Cash-back... Should we create similar systems in bitcoin? on: September 14, 2020, 11:44:42 AM
     I am all for new things happening to bitcoin and all that helps it get known to many more people who are unaware of this industry but the thing here though is that if you really try to understand what bitcoin is or how the people in this industry sees bitcoin and uses it, then you would see that it would be quite difficult for your suggestion to be realized. Just to be clear though, I am not against the idea, I just think that it is very unlikely to happen.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: With this recent surge in BTC, is it possible to have all time high this year? on: September 14, 2020, 11:05:44 AM
     Well, it really isn't far from being plausible. I mean, naturally, people would expect that most of the investors would pull out their investments or people who have gotten interested in crypto currencies may have second thoughts on investing since it is in a time of pandemic; a time of need. But in the contrary, I think this would be quite positive for bitcoin since lots of people are losing jobs and looking for various ways to increase income while others are losing trust in fiat since inflation is waving almost every where. So I think it is possible to see an ATH before the year ends. But hey, in the end, these are all just speculations. Weigh everything clearly before investing.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Betting on bitcoin against Central Bank Digital Currencies on: September 07, 2020, 07:59:08 PM
     Well, if you really think about it, bitcoin is the winner here if we talk about the long run. It's pretty logical since we can all see the flaws of the fiat we use wherever you are in the world. Although bitcoin has flaws of it's own, if you really are careful and if your country really does allow crypto currencies, then bitcoin truly is the better bet. But hey, that's just me and my view. Just saying that with the things happening in the world today, I trust bitcoins more than fiat.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin in a good shape? on: September 07, 2020, 06:38:08 PM
     Lol. You clearly didn't check after you checked before. Haha. Seriously though, overall, I think the whole industry is in a good shape as of the moment and not just bitcoin. But if you ask me, I really do prefer the prices last 2 years ago. Nit that I don't like the good status of bitcoin today, it's just that it was quite fun playing with shit coins at those times and was a really good time to stash as much bitcoins as you can for upcoming price spikes.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin fueling to launch to the moon anytime soon. on: September 07, 2020, 05:43:28 PM
     Well, people will always have their own say in just about anything and that includes bitcoin n itself. Even on other crypto currencies you see people shilling all around the internet. It is good to be positive about the price of bitcoin since it gives us hope but I suggest not betting on it too much if your only basis are previous trends or movements of bitcoin since we all know that bitcoin isn't that big in terms of following patterns or repeating past movements. Not saying it's dumb, just saying that being cautious if not a bad thing in this industry. -just an advice.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where did Satoshi Nakamoto ever compared Bitcoin to gold or digital gold? on: September 07, 2020, 03:21:26 PM
     You know what op, I really do not think that it matters that much to prove anything. Creation of bitcoin is good enough already, too bad though, satoshi couldn't stand with it and left it together with the responsibilities to other people. But despite so, the fact that he created bitcoin is enough reason to admire him and respect his decisions and views.

     And as what I remember in reading some of the words of satoshi, I never once seen or understood a sense of hate for the government itself. I mean, if any, I think he meant the taxes or the manipulation made by some governments or its officials for this reason. Bitcoin's creation, the way I understand satoshi's words, maybe an effort to help give people another option for their assets; to give an option in which they are in control.

20  Economy / Speculation / Re: A whale transferred 4,500 bitcoins to Binance; Is the price drop close? on: August 31, 2020, 05:27:16 PM
     Well, that's quite huge news. Its neither good or bad though in my opinion because that just means another set of bitcoins will be hack in circulation. While it may cause waves of price drop and ups, at least it would push the price to move more than stay too stagnant. Or maybe this is just a trick to make some people sell or a preparation for an upward surge to sell when price starts shooting up. We really don't know. But either way, it will not rot in someone's wallet anymore.
