I like the idea of Bitcoin Cash Plus.  It has the advantages of Bitcoin Cash but removes the centralization aspect away from Bitcoin Cash.  If Roger Ver argues that Bitcoin Cash is closer to the original vision of the Bitcoin whitepaper, then Bitcoin Cash Plus is even closer to Satoshi's vision.

But every user already agreed with the risk. There is no regulation on polo, and insurance to give a guarantee for the users.
If you play on polo it seems like you're playing in the grey area. Too many unfair practices in polo. The possibility of polo will be turned to the scam site is always be there. This time all of the transaction gets blocked by him.
His DDOS looks very odd in my mind. We are doing a trade at our own risk.

I don't know what you are talking about. I didn't agree to any of this risk. I trusted them, and rightly so. I like what they provide, but LOTS of problems the last several weeks, and especially the last few days.

Poloniex is an American company, located in Wilmington, DE, and expressly regulated by the CFTC. They have been very vocal about being regulated by it.

That is not to say that magic curing of everyone's Polo issues will happen by tomorrow, but the company is UStateside, and regulated to some degree, and that is good for Americans, at least. (World Citizens from other countries, I speak not against you!!)

You did agree to the risk newbie.  Read the Poloniex terms of service.  Chock this up as a lesson in how the real world works.  I'm sure mommy and daddy will replace the birthday money you lost.  (...fucking millennials)

Poloniex haters a simply a bunch of losers that had their first taste of how day trading is a losing proposition.  The trick is getting out before the dump.  Suddenly these idiots have found out how hard that is.  News Flash: When everyone else is dumping their shit coins, access to the system bogs down in order to do the same.  Let me guess what happened.  
     1. Joe Schmuck is in some shit coin scam like stellar or ripple.  
     2. Bottom begins to drop out.  
     3.  Joe tries to sell but with everyone else hitting poloniex it takes longer than normal as price falls.  
     4.  Joe chases the falling price until a sale order finally goes through.  
     5.  Woops, now there's a dead cat bounce and Joe's FOMO kicks in and he buys back in.  
     6.  Look out below, by the time he and everyone else realize it's a dead cat bounce, everyone begins chasing the fall again losing even more money.

That's not a problem with the trading platform, that's how being on the shitty end of day trading works.  Sucks to be you.
5  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Lending bitcoins on: May 05, 2017, 01:23:38 PM
I'm an looking for lenders for a current project I'm working on.  I'm willing to take on short term loans at a 10% weekly rate.  I am setting up restaurants in the San Francisco area with the ability to accept bitcoins .  We will recover 3% of all future Bitcoin transactions at the restaurant.   As it is just starting out I need some initial start up funds.  Lend your bitcoins to:   1FH6TuVZW9Z2q3Djc56h3tLYGce8X8EVWZ
7 days from your loan I will return your funds with an additional guaranteed 10%.  
Thanks.

If you got scammed in some way, shape, or form after entering the crypto market... Welcome to the club.  It's basically a rite of passage.  Consider yourself having passed the first test of Bitcoin (or whatever altcoin/scam you're into).  I've been here since late 2011 and fell into playing Satoshi dice using a Martingale strategy.  Thankfully I pretty much broke even however could have easily lost big time.  There was an early Bitcoin prediction market that ultimately pulled an exit scam causing me to lose 2 or 3 bitcoins.  Of course I had a number of bitcoins in Mt. Gox when that went down.  I feel like an expert.  After a while you learn the "Capital A, #1 rule of Bitcoin"  Don't trust anyone or anything because everyone is out to separate you from your bitcoins.
Once again, welcome to the club.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Use Augur? on: May 02, 2017, 12:38:33 PM
Do you use augur? What do you think of the platform?
Its different than a crypto currency right? Was checking their website and what it actually is, according to them its a platform that predicts future events. So how does that evaluate their coin and its value?
Can anyone please explain.

Its basically a gambling site.  You make a prediction on something like, Donald trump will win the US election,  or Germany will win the 2018 World Cup.  If you are correct, you (and anyone else who made the same bet) will share the bets of those who bet against you on the other outcome.  The key is however, that you have to use Augur reputation tokens to make the bet and it pays out in Augur reputation tokens.  The goal is that, as more users use the augur to make these bets the value of augur tokens will increase.  Who currently does this?  Nobody.  The only reason the value of the tokens are increasing right now is people are speculating that it will eventually be used.  Speculation then breeds further speculation, hence the current price.  Augur is a joke and anybody holding it is simply gambling that it goes higher and they get out before the house of cards comes crumbling down.  Surprisingly, the value of Augur increased with the Gnosis auction.  Gnosis is the same thing; just another prediction market.  In a rational world, Augur's value should actually go down as Gnosis is in direct competition with Augur.  Its another example of how irrational the whole crypto market is right now and evidence that the altcoin market will eventually crash.  The trick is getting out right before the crash occurs.   
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitfinex- bank blocked all their deposits on: April 26, 2017, 06:05:45 PM
how can Bitfinex survive when they cannot receive and send funds to their clients?

They can't and they won't. If people had any piece of sense left in their brains, they would be running away from finex right now. (Smart ones probably do/did) The signs are clear. It is not like Gox which happened instantly without any sign. (Huge price pump caused by Gox was the only sign actually)

The fact that account holders in Bitfinex can move their bitcoins or altcoins off the exchange, as suggested, is an example of how this is absolutely nothing like Mt. Gox.  By the sound of most of the posts here, its obvious that ~90% of the people posting haven't been around long enough to remember Mt. Gox.  When Mt. Gox went down, EVERYTHING was frozen.  Bitcoins, fiat; all of it was frozen.  Comparing Mt. Gox to this incident with Bitfinex is absurd.  It sucks for Bitfinex themselves but for anyone else, simply get out.
9  Economy / Speculation / Re: Has the SEC made an approval? on: March 10, 2017, 01:55:03 PM

And because of these manipulations SEC may come to office today, see BTC price movements and reject ETF proposal.

Please.  The two commissioners at the SEC making the decision aren't going to make a decision based on some price movement occurring over the last hour.  If a yes or no decision will be made, its already been done and drafted by their clerks and simply passing through the administrative process to be published.  If not, this is going to be the first ETF in history to be approved by default after Monday passes.

The price is moving up fast.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where can I see if the ETF approval is positive? on: March 07, 2017, 01:49:53 PM
SEC press releases can be found at the following address.  You can set it up so that you will be notified immediately by email of any new press releases.  This will allow you to not have to rely on any news sites as this is the same method that any of them will be notified as well.

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Which scalable solution is better? on: March 01, 2017, 01:54:43 AM
I think we should activate SegWit and then do something like this.  The bizarre fixation everyone seems to have with the blocksize being a whole number is silly, when there's literally nothing wrong with 1.1mb or even 1.21mb if we adjust by 10% increments.  Fixed, rigid caps are also ill conceived.  The most pragmatic approach is a conservative and algorithmic dynamic blocksize with built in safeguards to prevent gaming the system.

This is what Bitcoin Unlimited does.  There is no fixed cap but it adjusts the block size based on the historical number of transactions in the network and adjusts itself both up and down to accommodate.  Are you aware of this?  I'm not trying to be snarky, I'm seriously asking the question.  This adjustable blocksize is one of the reasons that I'm in agreement with BU and if people are made aware of this aspect of BU, they might become more receptive of it.  It also shows that if many are not aware of this aspect of BU, it shows that Roger Ver and other supporters are not doing a good job of promoting, and educating people on the benefits of BU.
14  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2017-02-27] SEC Update on COIN ETF: Higher Probability of Approval? on: February 28, 2017, 01:39:05 PM
One somewhat minor misconception I think many have regarding the approval denial process is that a decision will be made ON March, 11.  There is no meeting on March 11 where this issue will be decided.  The SEC has UP TO March 11 to make a decision however that decision could be made at any time until that date.  
Erm well that has been pretty clear to anyone following the ruling. Certainly doesn't require you nor anyone else pointing it out in a Bitcoin fora. Ffs


Erm, Fuck off.
9 out of 10 articles on the issue make reference to something happening on March 11 and therefore I'm making note of it.  Maybe, Shithead, the post was directed at the multitude of individuals who have not been following the ruling closely.  Certainly nothing requires your opinion on the matter, as you add nothing to the conversation unless you somehow have the need to moderate various posts.  With such a moronic comment, I'm guessing your short, probably have a small dick, think you're a lot more witty than you actually are, and have a dreamy desire to be in charge a lot, yet no one allows it.  (For fucks sake)  
15  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2017-02-27] SEC Update on COIN ETF: Higher Probability of Approval? on: February 28, 2017, 03:07:17 AM
Considering that there only exists two current SEC commissioners,  both who are ideologically opposed to or another,  with three vacancies, the potential of a non-decision is lot greater than i think a lot of others might expeft.

17  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2017-02-27] Vays vs Ver: Two Very Different Bitcoin Visions Clash at Anarchapul on: February 28, 2017, 01:42:43 AM
I'm a big fan of Roger Ver and I am a supporter of Bitcoin Unlimited.  With that said, I am getting somewhat frustrated with some of his arguments or at least the way he supports some of his arguments.  I've been involved in bitcoin for a decent amount of time.  Late 2011 is when I became involved.  While not as long as Roger, in the history of bitcoin, this can be considered a somewhat early adopter.  I find it somewhat insulting when he supports his argument with the position as if his opinion or viewpoint has more weight than others that have come to bitcoin at a later date.  We're all in this together and we all need each-other to succeed.  I agree with almost all the points that he is making when supporting larger blocks.  I agree with his viewpoint on thinblocks, censorship and the adjustable blocksize.  I have a problem with him however when he frames his argument with the attitude that he is somehow morally superior because he came to the game earlier than others and I can guarantee that he is not gaining support with this attitude. 

On a separate note, I think Tone Vays is great commentator on the state of bitcoin today and I think his cryptoscam podcast is a needed addition to the podcast scene.  I also commend him for taking on the challenge to debate the blocksize issue with Roger Ver.  My question however, is why is Tone Vays ushered into the role of defending Bitcoin Core.  I have never seen a member of the Bitcoin Core stand up in a debate such as this willing to confront Bitcoin Unlimited supporters in such a way.  Congratulations for Tone for taking on the challenge.  I think he did a great job, but even he admits that he is not technologically proficient enough to answer some of the detailed questions.  SO why has no developer within the bitcoin core been willing to do this?  If someone has a link to such a debate I would love to review it.  If not, it doesn't support their argument.

Oh, and let's not forget DooMAD and his famous opposition to ad hominem posts....... except when he makes a long diatribes consisting of nothing but personal sleights and insults.

The hypocrisy reeks

Why are these idiots coming in here? I thought the news section was too boring for these people.... which is why its the only section I check anymore.

DooMAD, BurtW.... just 'eff off into the main forums, KTHX.


I agree.  I don't even bother with the Bitcoin general discussion board but rather stick to the "Development and Technical" or "Press" sub-boards.  The general discussion board has devolved over the past year or two into an un-moderated cesspool of low quality topics discussing such as, who's Satoshi, what would you do with XXX bitcoins, Why the name "Bitcoin" is the perfect name etc., or else school-yard "you are/no you are" arguments between anonymous trolls such as these two.  
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Most Undervalued Cryptocurrencies of 2017 on: February 08, 2017, 08:36:11 PM
Would be cool to know why each coin is considered as "undervalued"

I'm into ZEC and ZCL all the way...

How's that working out for you? 
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Determining Transactions by Date and Time on: February 08, 2017, 02:32:09 PM
I was looking at the price of Bitcoin suddenly drop today at around 8:00 UTC Feb. 8, 2017 and questioned whether it is possible to search blockchain.info or some other source to determine if this sudden surge in volume was the result of transactions from a single Bitcoin address.  Does anyone know of a resource to look at transactional data only by identifying a specific time range on the blockchain?
