Why is your portfolio on an exchange at all? The only coins which should be anywhere other than your own wallet are coins which are being actively traded.
I have even better proposition.
Pretend like you don't have any portfolio and uninstall all portfolio tracking apps, especially during bear markets, and you will sleep much better Wink
@noorman0 said he is holding his portfolio in exchanges and for that o_e_l_e_o asked why even bother holding their portfolio in exchanges and i am surprised that people are still using exchanges to hold their funds for the long term.

It appears this fud is spreading more widely than I have expected. In any case, it also appears that there are not many users of Kucoin in bitcointalk?
Was holding stable currency in Kucoin in order to buy BTC at appropriate time and when the news started to spread i withdrew them without any issues.

Another bad news, @samczsun has tweeted another hash of a text string or a hash of hash of a text string. Some have mentioned that this is bad news about USDC.
I did not decode them but there is another rumor that Circle is loosing money big time because crypto companies are borrowing tons of USDC, which they cannot pay back and some of these situations were evident in the documentations when they filed for the SPAC IPO.
You cannot find USDC audit reports but claims that they are attested by Grant Thornton LLC.  Cheesy

we don't know the back up plans of el salvador. but definitely, the president won't compromise the welfare of his people. they already did calculate the risks involved so maybe, they have very good allowance about the up and down movement of prices. also, they are not losing if they are not selling their BTC. as of now, we know they are still buying at this price level. in time, we will see if their decision going into crypto is worth their resources to risk. we can't say their investments are under water. because they are not selling.
It is really amusing to see that El Salvador is still investing at this price and this should be their back up plan to invest rather than investing when the price was around $45k which means they are not calculating the risk potential. It is true that as long as they are not selling off their investment and could possible hold them till the next rally he would be a popular president but the fact is that the term for Nayib Bukele ends before the next halving and possibly the next rally.

The majority of investors and traders are increasingly understanding crypto fundamentals before investing, is there any crypto that moves itself according to its fundamentals both now and in the future?
You can find many crap projects that would rally daily if you are looking for that  Tongue. If you are still not aware that the entire market revolves around BTCitcoin then it is really hard to convince anyone otherwise  Cheesy, entire market rallies in accordance to the BTCitcoin market and the entire market goes down in accordance with the BTCitcoin market and there is no other secret coin that would supersede those performance.
4  Economy / Economics / Re: UK inflation hits new high of 9.1% as food and energy price surge persists on: July 03, 2022, 05:24:10 PM

This is messed up for UK citizens which is similar to what the rest of the world is facing these days primarily thanks to COVID and the Russian war. Also, someone like Boris Johnson representing UK is another factor in this case.

This whole situation is actually bad for the middle class and poor people since the rich will endure as usual even though they might see a drop in their profits.
This is a situation that is faced globally, food prices are soaring, fuel prices are rising and inflation is rising, you cannot blame everything on COVID for the situation let alone the Russian War. Countries and governments will blame the situation on them and have a free will situation. The economy was struggling well before the pandemic situation in majority of the countries and it is just another trigger and everyone will struggle during this phase.

If someone can't get a chance to represent India or Pakistan, then it means that they don't have the necessary quality to take part in top quality cricket. Such players won't do any good even if they move to other teams. They will only steal the chances of hardworking native players. In case of the GCC nations, it is understandable. Without the foreign players, they won't be having a playing XI. But that is not the case with teams such as Kenya and Nepal, because the latter group do have a lot of natives playing cricket.
Emirates Cricket Board is not hiring players by coming down to India or Pakistan and watching the domestic tournaments. The players that are in the team are expats who moved to GCC and then continuing on their passion of playing Cricket and if they are good enough to be selected they will be hired to play in the National team and there is a selection process for that for expats and once they get selected they would obviously get better perks than they used to get from their normal job and can resign from their designation or have an extended leave and play for the national team and this is how the process works.

It was a confident victory from Volkanovski. Holloway tried to demonstrate activity, but because of this he only made many mistakes. He himself crossed out his advantage in growth, by the fact that he constantly approached, and in close combat Volkonovsky beat Max very confidently. Well, now we can say with confidence that this confrontation is over, Volkanovski proved his superiority.
Alexander Volkanovski was a superior fighter and he was much faster than Max Holloway and he was not able to find the range and Alexander Volkanovski was landing the heavy punches frequently and now it is time for Alexander Volkanovski to move up the division and fight ‎Charles Oliveira and that is what he said during the post fight interview and i believe that is what he is going to get next because he literally cleaned the division.

Max should take a cue from Israel, how coolly and prudently he uses his height advantage. No rapprochement, keeps the opponent at a distance and achieves another victory!
Max Holloway should take some time off, he is durable fighter but got punched a lot and i believe it is a UFC record or something. As long as Alexander Volkanovski is the champion he will not get a chance to fight for the title.

The match is most likely to be a draw. England lost the fifth wicket for 83 runs. And England lost the wicket of Stokes by 149 runs. The partnership between Bairstow and Stokes was 66 runs. However, Stokes is collecting only 26 runs. I thought he would collect at least 50 more. However, losing 6 wickets, England managed to score 200 runs. The match is being delayed due to rain, there is no news about when the match will start again.
Considering this is the third day and England still trail by 160 odd runs and they already lost their 8th wicket. It is possible to see the results if India could pile up runs at a faster run rate and hopefully we do not see any rain interruption and if that is the case we could even see the results.

Meanwhile Redhead Bairstow keep going strong, 3 back to back tons for him. He's turning his test cricket upside down. It was more like Him vs Indian bowlers.
Jonny Bairstow is playing his best and rescuing the team and he is the sole consistent performer for England this year and if not for his century the situation would have been pathetic for England.

two of the most powerful crypto influencers added more bitcoin to their treasury. And that is called strong hands grabbing bitcoin.
Can we call El Salvador investment as a crypto influencer trying to influence others to do the same, good to see that they are still having money to invest when the market is down so that they can average their initial investments as they did majority at a really high valuation.

As per the documents MicroStrategy is sitting at a loss of about $3.4 billion and their investors are bleeding as well and if they are buying at this level, good for them but i will not categorize all these as strong hands even though Michael J Saylor is downplaying the loss they are facing. Wink

I thought Bitcoin was a big joke before but that idea just slapped me so hard. From then on, I waited for the price to drop down and started buying it with the hope of gaining a good profit despite my previous mistake.
Anyone who failed to understand the underlying technology always felt that it is a bubble and hence majority missed out in entering the market at an early phase, but you can still consider to enter now and earn a substantial profit. When it comes to rallies BTCitcoin never disappointed anyone, unless they jumped in the market when the price was rallying at an all time high.

That was the best UFC Hall of Fame I think with Khabib Nurmagomedov, his Legacy has brought different fighters, and his style is really and undeniably the unbeatable style in the entire UFC, and right now passing his baton to the likes of Russian fighters, like Islam Makhachev, Umar Nurmagomedov, Khamzat Chimaev, and so much more, and still consider the UFC 229 the best fight of his career and will never forget how he fought Conor McGregor, in it, who knows maybe a rematch for that kind of fight will have a go, but it is up to Khabib Nurmagomedov to decide, and ask he would like to see Cain Velasquez, Frankie Edgar, should have their moment with him in the Hall of fame, but we all know that Cain Velasquez is still sitting inside Jail, but still think Velasquez should have the privilege in having his moment inside the UFC hall of fame aswell,
Khabib Nurmagomedov literally opened the gate for the fighters from the Russian belt as he was the first Russian based fighter signed with the UFC as per his speech during the Hall of Fame ceremony and he even assured three champions from his gym in the next couple of years. I still feel that he ended his career pretty soon and if he could defend his belt for a couple of times it would have been great but there is no denying his legacy as a dominating force during his run.

Cain Velasquez will be inducted in the Hall of Fame as he was considered the best to ever do in the Heavyweight division in his prime and injuries cut short his reign. I still remember the battles he had with Junior dos Santos which is legendary.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: The future of metaverse in crypto space on: July 01, 2022, 10:53:24 PM
The metaverse had the necessary hyped to a great build up, the early stages of the metaverse project or utilities saw good attention and good services, but right now I believe the metaverse sector is fast being destroyed by so many projects creating their own metaverse, although what you hold and how long is your decision but where I think would be difficult is how to select a real metaverse project that isn’t going to fail or even worse a scam.
It is still new and we are yet to see a fully developed metaverse project. There are many projects that are building their games and if you are looking at the token price then there wont be that much after the market collapse but just look for the project roadmap and the team behind the project and take your decision as there are a few promising projects in the space that delivered with big NFT signings and hopefully they will deliver with the metaverse as well.

The match will definitely be competitive. It will not be easy for England to defeat India.
It was a special innings from Rishabh Pant and he is instrumental for India in the Test format as he has rescued India single handedly many times in his short career and when India lost their 5th wicket for 98 runs i never expected India to bounce back from that stage but Rishabh Pant had other ideas and he started counter attacking rather than defending which is really crazy considering the pathetic situation the team was in. His innings reminded me of the batting of Adam Gilchrist who comes down at number 7 and when the opposition think that they have done their hard work he starts his counter attack and take the game away  Cheesy.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Reasons why people avoid KYC in gambling casino ? on: June 30, 2022, 11:59:36 PM
~
They don't trust the casino as the casino might misuse the kyc documents or the gamblers want to gamble without telling anyone that they are the gamblers,  gambling is illegal in their region or religion and they want to hide their identity or there could be any other solid reason?
Gambling can be a taboo in many places and there are places where online gambling rules are not clear about the legality and hence users will not be willing to associate their identity with gambling sites. Then there is the other aspect of trust issues whether they will be safe keeping the KYC documentation and whether there will be leakage of their identity especially if they are gambling huge amounts.

The Bangladesh Cricket Team and the Bangladesh Cricket Board are currently at loggerheads. Due to such rivalry between the cricket board and the players, the Bangladesh cricket team is currently performing very poorly on the field. I think we should work together to eliminate the rift between the players and the cricket board and move forward to give the Bangladesh cricket team the highest status in the world.
I am not sure whether there is a rivalry between the Bangladesh players and their Cricket board and hence they are performing badly. Players are always disposable and the board can always replace a player who is not performing better, only Shakib Al Hasan has some sort of dispute with the board as far as i understand and the only reason he is able to do so is because he is the best player Bangladesh produced.

Because, it's never been easy to play against team like India and having target like this then still losing by just four runs I am still had butterflies in my head what the hell we have in today match which was playing between India and Ireland just because of this thrill I am really love in this format and now looking to ICC they bring some more excitement with giving more chances to these teams for having more competitions against top ranked teams.
India is experimenting with the team and it was a really close match and for a moment i thought Ireland is going to win the match because George Dockrell took Ireland back in the team with his power hitting and with the small grounds it was easier to clear the boundary easily but he was not able to cope with the pace of Umran Malik who bowled the last over. But when he bowled a no ball i thought they will win the match but nerves got the better for Ireland.

We all have a very good idea now that ICC is anything but honest. They are always going to look for profits instead of thinking about what is best for cricket in the long run. And that is happening because of some corrupt authority personnel in the ICC. Everyone should have a problem if a national team is made out of a hundred percent foreign players. Here we are talking about how to fix this situation and meanwhile, we have more teams like that about to take part in the next World Cup. It feels as if ICC is actually encouraging this type of behavior or should I say “Business Policy.” This needs to be stopped ASAP.
I am not sure why ICC alone is a corrupt one because they are allowing countries to add foreign players in their team. It is a global governing body for cricket and they want to see the game grow and reducing the number of countries who are allowing foreign players will not help developing the game.

It is not a business policy by the ICC but if a respective Cricket board selects players who are migrants, what is wrong in that. The general claim here in the forum is that, there must be a quota system. Let the respective Cricket board gets the authority to select the best team possible and not enforce these quota system.

Do you think the government of Macau made the right decision or they are very desperate not to shut down the casino operations
because they need their economy going.
The selective enforcement is going on for a while and people will start protesting if the government starts these selective enforcement of things. In the past the same happened in the US and the business owners started to protest and i am expecting all the business owners who were forced to shut their business in the name of pandemic will be protesting for selective enforcement.

With this format ODI could be died, and we will be able to have only these two formats which are good enough for staying in good shape Test matches and T-10 hopefully someone will give his own comments about this as well.
I am really happy to see T 10 as an entertainer as all the bowlers are taken for granted and the batsman keeps swinging the bat but i do not think that all the major teams will be taking on that. T20 is the best format for everyone who do not have time to enjoy the match, i do not want to see matches getting shorter and International teams playing that as it will be really hard to predict any matches.

India won the first match against Ireland pretty easily even though the match was reduced to 12 overs a side and this is the trend i am expecting in this series, unless Ireland proves otherwise Grin.

All five of the largest publicly traded crypto mining companies say they are building or already operating plants powered by renewable energy, and industry executives have started arguing that demand from crypto miners will create opportunities for wind and solar companies to open facilities of their own.  

the worldwide Bitcoin mining sector is being powered by an estimated 58.5 per cent renewable energy by the fourth quarter of 2021.  Its now very clear that Bitcoiners are now more environmntal friendly than EU.
I will not be claiming that Bitcoiners are protecting the environment, but it is a fact that the blame of exploiting the nature is tagged upon the BTCitcoin community for a while even though majority of the big miners are using renewable energy and it is sad to see that we still have a tag and gets blamed. 

EU nations has to find a renewable energy source and majority of the countries should follow Iceland as they have the highest share of renewable energy in Europe and hopefully we will stop hearing the blame game in the future.

The BCB is a cricket board rich enough. Yet they are failing to improve their cricket. This is definitely a failure of the management. To improve the Test format, Bangladesh should now organize Test series with weaker teams. Afghanistan is stronger than Bangladesh in the Test format. Bangladesh will not be able to win with Afghanistan. They should play against teams like Ireland and the Netherlands.
Organizing matches with weaker teams will not improve the performance of a team so that it will continue even when they face tough competition. Having a tournament with weak teams means the players can improve their averages and score some big runs but that will not help the team even in the short term against better teams. Find young talents groom them and that is how you improve the format and be a better team.
