241  Economy / Speculation / Re: What is the Bitcoin price after five years? on: March 11, 2018, 06:51:06 AM
If blockchain technology improves, the capacity of the block is enlarged. Solve the problem of delayed transactions, and more and more people involved. Then five years after the Bitcoin will be what price?

     Well, if all of those that you have mentioned really becomes true having the problem for fees and delayed transactions happen within this year, then I think that the thing "more and more people involved" will shortly follow. Now, if it really does happen, I am looking at a value of over half a million in US dollars for a single bitcoin alone. Just think about it, bitcoins without issues and countless people getting into it and using it while others are holding, making the demand off the charts. Not to mention the amount of limited coins being used or circulated getting smaller everyday, it will absolutely be a path to the moon!
242  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: If Bitcoin dies does altcoin die? on: March 11, 2018, 06:30:19 AM
Yes this is more likely to happen because of the standard and expectation is there for a crypto and with this they are expecting that other crypto as well will be a successful one. With this Bitcoin will be an expectation and a standard or a role model for every other cryptocurrencies out there existing because of the main reason of it is the very first crypto.

     hmm.. Good point you have there man. It is true that bitcoin is the role model of all altcoins or is the one that people look at to generalize crypto the crypto world(at least the newbies and the ones who have no idea how things work here yet).  Obviously, seeing bitcoins die will really spark a lot of intrigue and might lead to the demise of the crypto world as a whole. Just like how bitcoins pull every altcoin up with it, it can also pull every altcoin down with it. But even so, I think that the fall of bitcoin will not be the end of the crypto world(depending on the reason why it died of course). I think that the prices will just be down for a period of time and then rise up again as a new coin takes the king's throne. That is how I see it.
243  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin as payment system on: March 11, 2018, 06:13:01 AM
I think it can be bitcoin as a means of payment. and even now bitcoin is already available for payment in some countries. it may be possible in the future to see from the limited number of bitcoins will make the bitcoin price too high and perhaps many countries are still difficult to make official regulation of the rules using bitcoin....

     Yes, you are absolutely right man. Bitcoins have already been accepted as a form of payment in many countries and by a lot of people. In fact, I have read an amazing thread started by some guy saying that he is from czech and that a store there in their country does accept bitcoins. The better news? Well, it does not only accept bitcoins but also other crypto currencies like LTC(forgot the other one), this store is expected to accept more types of crypto currencies in the future. But yes, even with that great news, there are still a lot of bad news and FUDs all over the internet, just like what you have mentioned. But even so, I think that bitcoins or the crypto world as a whole will be surviving for a long time despite all these issues.
244  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin dropped by $2k on: March 11, 2018, 06:01:43 AM
As all of you know that the value dropped from a solid $11.5k to $9.5 recently. Could BitMex, the trading platform for bitcoin on other cryptos, where some users who had difficulty logging into its platform be one of the reasons for it? 

     umm.. Nope, I really do not think that this is the reason. Although I am not saying that it isn't a problem, I am saying that I do not think that the bitmex issue is the cause of these drops on prices. In fact, if that issue was even related to the prices of bitcoin, the prices would've increased more rather than decrease since the owners of bitcoins that use bitmex services would be forced to hold their bitcoins because they cannot sell them or trade them due to the inability to access their accounts.
245  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin future on: March 10, 2018, 03:38:10 PM
Prediction is a tricky business.
Itís so easy to be wrong and so hard to be right.

     Well, if you go and ask me, I really cannot tell you exactly and would probably be just telling almost the same speculations as the other people out there has already said over and over again. Which is why I am only gonna say that I am happy whatever happens with it in the future: If it gets extinct then at least I have been a part of all the people in the word that have gotten their hands on this amazin technology and was really able to use it to get some things I wanted or needed. And if not, then damn, I am gonna be celebrating for the next years that I have left in my life. Have put on this mindset a more than a year ago since I have realized that nothing really is for sure when it comes to cryptos. It can either go extremely high or extremely worthless. So make sure that you enjoy it while it still exists and do not be too greedy.
246  Economy / Speculation / Re: When to buy Bitcoin on: March 10, 2018, 03:24:49 PM
     Voted for turtles. Lol. But seriously though, I think that buying bitcoins should be at times like these when the prices are really low, at times when there are a huge number of fuds being spread out there all across the internet on social media sites and blogs or even on youtube and sites of the same sort. Because at times like these is when a lot of people are selling out of panic and driving the price down. And knowing bitcoins, it has a great chance to really get back on top again and really break all time high records that it has made already in the past. But still, one must keep in mind that it is always best to only invest amounts that you can really afford to lose.
247  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What do you do with your crypto? on: March 10, 2018, 03:13:04 PM
In most cases, It depends on every individual's preference. You should assess how much risk you can take and be self-aware of your strategy on how to manage your investments. I suggest you should try both and see for yourself which of the two is more profitable. Although, hodling has a higher probability that your investment will grow and be profitable in the long run, when it comes to trading, it has thrill and excitement.

     You are absolutely right. there is no other better teacher than experience itself. But the thing that every crypto holder must really put into consideration is the type of coin that they are holding or in the very beginning, try to know as many as he or she can about the coin that he or she is planning to buy or to invest in. The reason as to why is because if you know a lot about the coin you are holding it will be pretty easy for you to make decisions as to whether you will still hold or sell. For me, this is the most important thing in the crypto world. -To have knowledge.
248  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BTC Mining vs Buying on: March 10, 2018, 02:48:47 PM
Depending on your condition, whether you currently have a minning rig or not. If you already have a minning rig then doing both is the best way, but if you do not currently have a minning rig then it's better to buy bitcoin because we also know that currently the bitcoin price is below $ 10,000.

i agree, and also we all know that mining rigs are so verry expensive nowadays especially those higher units or new versions. miners do also upgrade because the mining difficulty is increasing day by day. but  anyways  , the best choices to do is to buy a coin rather than mining it because buying is easy and verry profitable when compared to mining a coin. Mining do also takes time in order for you to mine a single coin and the maintenance cost isnt easy also.

     Correct. Mining requires a lot of resources and time to set up when you are jut starting up. Plus you have to consider the bills like internet, electricity, hardware, and of course the place where you will put your mining rigs. Because if you ever plan on doing it, you might as well do it big time. The only great thing in mining is that if the resources and the place you are living in makes the odds good for you, then it will be sure money and profits in just a few months.

     Now on investments. You see, investments or investing really requires a lot of time in learning the mechanics alone. And then shortly after that, you will also have to put a lot of time and effort in watching the prices all the time so you can really make sure that you will be buying on time and not buying just to lose all your capital on the next day. Obviously both really have their own shares of pros and cons, but if I had to choose, then it would be buying because it simply is easier in my own point of view.
249  Economy / Speculation / Re: BITCOIN AND ITS ENDING? on: March 10, 2018, 02:34:50 PM
Is there any ending or not?

     Umm,.. I really do not think that anyone here can give you an exact or an accurate answer to this type of question that you are asking. Because obviously, it is just impossible to predict. Anyone saying they can tell you what will exactly happen is either lying or is in a higher level state of stupidity. But still, we all can make speculations based on the things that we have witnessed in the past up to this day but it will only remain as speculations until it happens. So I think it is safe to say that we can trust the famous saying that states "nothing lasts forever." Something to think about.
250  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Really The Future Of Money? on: March 09, 2018, 02:45:00 PM
Since its launch in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, the presence of Bitcoin really creates pros and cons. There are a number of positive and negative views related to the cryptocurrency because of the fact that the 'currency' was just launched after the financial crisis 2007-2008. In contrast to the current conditions, the beginning of this currency is difficult to be accepted even though the market has paid a massive media to introduce and polish this beautiful Bitcoin side.
but since bitcoin is already in use many people they all choose bitcoin as their future money

     In a sense you are right. But the thing is that I do not agree with the statement about "the presence of bitcoins really creates pros and cons." Clearly, bitcoins is not the one creating the pros and cons or should I say its presence as what you have stated. The way I see it, the day that it was first thought of by the person satoshi nakamoto(or team satoshi), it already has pros and cons. And as technologies progress and through its continued use by the people, we learn about all the cons and pros and become the ones who create some of them. That is what I think.
251  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin to eliminate unemployment. on: March 09, 2018, 02:29:08 PM
Bitcoin can definitely help people get out of unemployment, but the difference wouldn't be significant or substantial. I'm pretty sure only a small percentage of people in the cryptocurrency space actually makes money from it one way or another, not to mention only a very small percentage of unemployed people in total even knows or heard about bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general.

     I must say, you really do have a point there man, I too think that this is the case and that the very few that are unemployed that have heard about bitcoins and the crypto industry are even divided unevenly into two having people that are too skeptical and close minded to even try looking for answers for themselves and a few others that really risk it and let themselves experience new things. But even so, I think that this year will be a different one and we might see changes in numbers sooner or later.
252  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 46% of last year's ICOs have failed already on: March 04, 2018, 08:37:10 PM

  • 46% of them are effectively dead already Ė despite raising over $104 million.
  • 902 crowdsales... 142 failed at the funding stage and a further 276 have since failed

     Oh well, this is the sad truth, nothing we can do about it. This is something that we can obviously say that is completely out of our hands/control. This is why having the proper knowledge and the effort to read the details of every ICO you want to invest in is very important. Because if you invest blindly, you will most likely fail and lose a lot of capital instead of earn a lot of profits. Now, for those who have invested already and are at a loss, just go all in and forget about you coins that are already color red. just move on and don't sell, leave it for a while, who knows? It may go up in value in the future. But you have to know if that coin is still worth holding so please do keep reading and search for latest news about the coins you are currenty holding from these various ICOs.
253  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The cryptocurrency as national currencies on: March 04, 2018, 08:21:30 PM
the cryptocurrencies will be the national currencies in 10 years or less

     Wow, I see that you are pretty sure of your claim there pal no? I presume you are a time traveler and have a time machine? Please do tell me what will be the winning lottery numbers, that would be really great. LOL. Sarcasm aside though, as much as I love crypto currencies, I really do not think that any crypto existing has the qualities that a national currency must have. And I pretty much think that we still do not have the capabilities to build a technology to be able to do so. There are just so many things that should be taken into account when making something as a national currency. An example is usability offline, most preferably on remote areas, fast transactions etc. But still, we cannot tell. Maybe some time in the 10 years you have mentioned will come a time when these issues are already fixed and will become just a thing in the past. But till then, I ain't gon be believing.
254  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: why ETH is getting down? on: March 04, 2018, 08:06:24 PM
anyone know why ETH getting down?
is there any bad news on it?

     Well, I currently have two issues in mind that I think are the reasons as to why the price of ethereum has been decreasing and remaining low(although I am not so sure about the second one). First reason I can think of is the drastic fall on the price of bitcoins which obviously affects the prices of all the altcoins out there and ethereum obviously is not exempted from this fall. Second reason is the split happening to mew which has been mew and gave birth to my crypto which are having a competition on who will be the best online crypto wallet out there.
255  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 2018 bigger year for ICOs? on: March 04, 2018, 07:38:08 PM
Over 40 ICOs and over $1 billion raised already in the new year 2018.
Last yearís mark was $5.6 billion. And in 2018, the trend is not showing any signs of slowing down.
2018 bigger year for ICOs?

     Yeap, I most certainly think so since a lot of people are already being curious about crypto currencies and being drawn into it which is why a lot of articles on the internet are explaining a lot about cryptos. I mean damn! Things about cryptos nowadays are just about anywhere! Even when you do not want to hear anything about it, it voluntarily show up in your social media accounts, in advertisements on various sites and informational articles regardless of the topic being talked about the author. This is the reason why the trend is continually increasing.
256  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is MEW Safe to use now? on: March 04, 2018, 07:26:56 PM
Recently there was a split between the team behind MEW and a new paper wallet site opened up.  Is MEW still safe to use with a Ledger?

     I have been using myetherwallet for quite some time now and have used it yesterday for selling some coin that is getting dumped rapidly. Judging by how I haven't encountered any problems yet in using myetherwallet, I do not see any reason as to why I need to worry about it being unsafe to use. What's happening is not something that is very alarming, it is nothing but a healthy competition about who will be the best online ethereum wallet. So unless you are careless with your private keys and other security measures, you really have nothing to worry about and can sleep soundly tonight.
257  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: When I am able to see profit this year? on: March 04, 2018, 06:59:02 PM
I have been holding some altcoins since January 2018, But then the market crush hard and I am not able to sell my altcoins because I am in loss with these coins.
Even I invested in more established coins like, Waves,strat,Iota,wabi but overall my portfolio is around 40% down so far.

When I am able to see profit? Holding them for long term is worth my patient? Huh Huh 

     You know what pal, before investing on any crypto currency, you should've prepared yourself already to be ready to lose all your capital in an instant. Because clearly, that is just how the crypto world works, you either earn some or lose some. But no worries man, it is completely natural to about your investments. Just hold them, I think the pattern is gonna be the same for this year like in the past years. So just be patient and keep holding. And besides, since you are already at a loss, why back out now? just go all in to win big time or lose capital. good luck.
258  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: NEO Could Surpass Bitcoin By The Year 2019 on: March 04, 2018, 06:37:22 PM
NEO is no doubt a good coin with great technology behind it, but let's be realistic. If Chinese government will allow to use cryptocurrencies on a large scale (which I think might happen in a year or two) NEO can probably climb up closer to Ethereum but it will hardly surpass ETH, let alone Bitcoin. The thing is that coins do not stand still, they evolve and that's why it is very important how good are developers and how many of them. Bitcoin has the largest and the most skilled team and that's why it can't be surpassed.

     Bravo man, I really do agree with you. People must see this fact so they would not have to assume too much about anything. Sure, NEO is a great project with great ideologies behind it, but even so, popularity alone will make it hard to beat bitcoins. Because if you ask most of the people here in this forum a question like: "what is the first crypto currency did you hear about?" or "what is the first crypto currency did you ever buy?", I am pretty sure that most of the people you ask will answer bitcoin. That being said, I think NEO will not be replacing bitcoins anywhere near my lifespan.
259  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Invest or bounty? on: March 04, 2018, 06:27:45 PM

How do you prefer to get crypto? Do you invest or you prefer to join bounty?

Also, check out bounty and token sale campaign of this project
Interesting to know your opinion  Smiley

     lol, What a great way in advertising an ICO, haha. But anyways, regarding the question, I honestly do prefer to do both trading and investing altogether since I do not want to be limited into just a single way of earning. I really do want to maximize what I can get to earn every year which is why I do as much work as I can depending on the free time I have when I do not have work offline. I often ask myself; Why do only a single job when you still have time to do another and a few more?
260  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: what is your plan? on: March 04, 2018, 06:18:46 PM
I will cash out once I already established my plan business. I will hold first my coins then after it reached the target value I want, I will sell my coins. After that, I will wait again until the prices of the coins depreciate then I will buy again until it reach the target value. By that, I will earn the money I need to be financially stable and after I bought the business I want, it will be less hassle for me to focus in daily trading. I can hold my coins longer if I have an extra income and it will make me more richer.

     Great plan you have there pal, the only problem I see there is you can never really know when is the right time to sell. And even if you put a realistic mark on when you would decide to sell, it is pretty much pretty hard to keep sticking to your mark when you see that the prices are still rising and you feel like it won't fall yet. Greed will eventually fight to take control and cloud your decisions. Unless you have already mastered controlling you greed, I think it will be pretty hard to execute a plan like yours. but nonetheless, it is still a pretty amazing plan to think about.
