1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Kazuto Ioka vs Donnie Nietes II on: Today at 06:09:01 AM
it is 72% against 27% favoring Donnie Nietes 11 .

I assume that even in His older age still People are aiming and trusting Him to win this fight?
I still trust him, he might be old but he is very consistent, so there's no reason to fear that we might lose our bet here, besides, if in case he lose, I'm sure it will be a hard fought and Ioka will not easily win.

but the sad part here is if that he losses this one , maybe he will also retire like the 2 famous Filipino Boxer that face defeat and decide for retirement.



We don't know his plan, but if he will retire, that's okay because he has already brought honor to our country by winning fights and becoming a world champion. Also, if he wins, he can still think of retirement because at age 40, I think he should start enjoying his life already after boxing.
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing] Mark Magsayo vs Rey Vargas WBC Featherweight Title (July 9) on: Today at 05:46:26 AM
I disagree with that, this is a world champion fight so I don't think people will not be interested in betting on this fight. Maybe there's a shark that bet big money on Vargas and that's the reason why Magsayo is the underdog again, but it does not really matter though because Magsayo will win and we will enjoy that 1.97 odds payout.

Regardless, it's a big advantage to us that Magsayo's odds are increasing. We have no choice but to bet for Magsayo in the first place that's why I'm in favor of that treatment where our Magsayo is the underdog, although just a slight. I hope it will increase more up to @2. A champion given with that line of odds is great.
Only a few days remaining for the first title defense of Magsayo as a WBC Featherweight. We will now witness him again fighting for the country.

Let's get it on!

We support Magsayo, then we should be happy with the odds, I think it's really moving a lot, and right now, here are the odds in sportsbet.

Magsayo 1.93
Vargas 1.84

Magsayo the Champ is an underdog, isn't it an insult, I guess we should really support him and just don't mind the odds, even if it's an underdog odds, it's always better to bet on Magsayo.
3  Economy / Speculation / Re: How do we spot the crypto bottom? on: July 04, 2022, 11:31:44 PM
Even though I know what you said is true, most investors with small capital can't afford that. Their fund is too low so they want to squeeze out every possible juice they can get to increase their profit margin. Or even try to DCA only when it comes close to the bottom as much as they can. So it always has that kind of investor who tries to spot the bottom no matter what.

How can they detect the price is close to the bottom when they don't know what the bottom is.  No one can tell that the last price is the bottom because no one really knows, they can only guess.  Anyway, even with small capital, investors can DCA by buying a little every dip or lower lows.  We don't need to buy a whole or a half of BTC just to DCA, we can buy thousands of satoshi and accumulate from there.
It was indeed to say that many were trying to speculate on the market and even rely on it, however, it was a failed attempt and they miss it again.
Well, the truth is that even though we are in the market the whole day 7 times a week, still, we can tell the bottom price nor even say when it comes as it is absolutely unpredictable. Thus, if we can afford to buy it now, that was a good idea and nothing we have to regret as we know that Bitcoin will up soon as this bear season end.

Well, the idea isn't totally wrong as it has a reason and intended for good. But the question is if there is another source of income to cover up once we fail in crypto or once the profit is delayed? This is the thing we need to consider first before taking a loan as many people missed that and that compromise their finances leading to committing more debts.

I don't say we won't but just I've said " we have to consider our capabilities to repay it in time", otherwise.

No one possesses infinite money, so whether you hold more or less money, you will still be at risk of losing if you cannot control yourself.

Remember that discipline is very important, and that is regardless of your strategy.
Martingale is known to be a betting strategy that is a recipe for disaster, you should not use that strategy if you cannot control your emotion as it will only bust your bankroll, and also, no gambling site that would allow you to double every time as they have a limit to implement.

I also think the same, it could be a great tandem and a good addition to the win that is why I listed it as a win for me,


I guess it depends on who they will trade for Gobert.

Bunch of players will be sent to Jazz for Gorbert, I don't know I don't like this thread or I think Jazz gets the advantage here.

https://www.nba.com/news/jazz-wolves-rudy-gobert-trade

Quote
Timberwolves receive:

Rudy Gobert

Jazz receive:

Malik Beasley
Patrick Beverley
Leandro Bolmaro
Walker Kessler
Jarred Vanderbilt
2023 first-round pick
2025 first-round pick
2026 pick swap
2027 first-round pick
2029 first-round pick (protected)

For one guy, that's too much in return IMO.
7  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Alt coins are About to pump again! on: July 01, 2022, 10:18:20 AM
I'm agree with Mk4 because in the current situation of downtrend there's always a bounce and the growth rate of the coin is making lower highs.. So OP don't based on what you see in the market and make technical analysis instead for you to see the real situation. And fyi it's normal, unless if the market trends reversed and clearly an uptrend because surely there will be an improvement in the future..
That I think OP is new to the market or has been here during the bull season makes him become worried about the current situation.
Yes, we can see the altcoins do the rally again once Bitcoin moves up but this will possibly happen when there is a change in the buying sentiment which is supposed to have more on the buying side than selling. Although we can see that people are buying now but it wasn't enough to move the market into recovery, it still needs more and the participation of whales and these merchants makes it possible.
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Are we going to recover or continue to dump? on: June 30, 2022, 01:14:32 PM
What are your current opinions on the cryptocurrency market?
The market isn't designed to have an instant recovery and ever since we can never see such schemes. 
Therefore, we have to expect that this will stay for a while until having the moment to hear good news and huge buys. It is somewhat we just miss by now, whales are seemingly quiet at this time, and big business institutions as well.

I may be wrong but I would say that we end up this year without huge changes, we may still see the price of Bitcoin below $30k. 
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Among all which do you hold on: June 30, 2022, 12:45:31 PM
given the current deteriorating market situation, I only keep bitcoin, ethereum and binance. but part of my portfolio I have converted in USDT. on the one hand I am waiting for the moment to buy bitcoin at a price lower than the current price. I have a feeling the bear market will last as long as 2018.
Perhaps, you can manage your portfolio to its best. Even just investing in Bitcoin alone is a good decision but we make to split our funds into some potential coins to lessen the risk as "putting eggs to a single basket is too risky"

Citing the market view at this time, it is quite to see that dumps still dominating the market. We can't be sure that the situation will stay longer like in 2018, I don't think about history repeat itself and even does, I was till believing that the market never goes the same, we have these dumps but the price may seem still high compared before.

about pacman challenge to hold the Fight of the Century fight again has not been welcomed by Mayweather and I think if Mayweather later agrees to the fight, of course we will see the two boxing legends fight again in the ring, apart from Mayweather reportedly now Amir Khan is ready to face Pacman in the fight exhibition boxing event but so far there has been no official confirmation from Pacman to approve or reject the challenge of Amir Khan.
We have 2 collections of the best boxing rumors that are very convincing can come from one of them, the most convincing rumors for Amir Khan because he is reported to have answered the challenge from coach Pacquiao, Freddie Roach has contacted Amir khan for an exhibition fight via telephone, although Manny Pacquiao has not released the official news but the involvement of Freddie Roach is already very sure the fight will be released within this year.
That would be an easy fight for Pacman, the glass chin against an 8 division world champion, that would be fun to watch especially if we will see a KO. However, since it's just an exhibition fight, we don't know if they would really be serious with it or will just strictly follow the script.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2023 NBA Season on: June 30, 2022, 11:34:46 AM
Maybe what's best for Clippers is they should build a good reliable role players which can help George and Leonard.
They have done that already, the only problem I see with the Clippers is the injury of Leonard. Even the 2 superstars will be surrounded with role players but if one of them will get injured, things will not work on their part as they will struggle hard.
12  Economy / Economics / Re: How Will Investing Help the Economy of a Country on: June 29, 2022, 10:43:56 PM
Investing is Widespread now in the Society such that the Inability of not Investing, is Paving a room for not Benefitting from the Outcome.
And Right now Investing in Crypto is a yardstick of measurement and has created an opportunity that's reliable and trusted..
But I really can't tell how thus Investing in The Economy will help one's Country.
I endure that investing gives a huge impact on our lives and gives us financial freedom once it will succeed but investing in crypto seems to be different, you can never tell it helps the economy of the country as many of these investors have no taxes to pay. I hope I was wrong but this is one reason why many wise investors come to crypto.

However, at least the community never cries for the government to feed them. They at least found a source of income that could help them to survive especially in the third-world country where a lot of people are jobless but they took crypto as an opportunity.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2023 NBA Season on: June 29, 2022, 12:28:35 PM
I also don't think that Clippers should trade John Wall. He hasn't been playing in any game since April 24, 2021. This is a huge interval for a basketball player and it is hard to rely on that player again for some time at least. They can at least monitor his performance at Rockets for some time and then decide what to do. He was of course a very talented player but we don't know how he will return. I also agree with @Yaunfitda that Clippers should already be comfortable with George and Leonard for now.
Wall does not play because he doesn't like his team, he just wants to be traded and I don't think because he didn't play that will lessen his value. IMO, Wall still belongs to the league of superstar in the NBA, and he can be a big help for the Clippers campaign to win a championship.

Remains to be seen, and it sound familiar (Harden), but it's not going to be easy for him as Clippers have already a established stars in Kawhi and PG13. How will he fit? for sure he will dislodge some of their players already like Reggie Jackson who has been playing good last season. On the contrary, it could backfire on them if Wall see that he is not giving enough time on the floor and then not giving his 100% every game, just saying.
Chemistry is the most important, everyone should play according to their respective roles.

And chemistry will be a big problem if Wall will not adopt the system of Clippers and he also want to shine among with his current star. We know how dominant George and Kawhi is so if they get wall then he will not be a good fit on this team well maybe we can see another Westbrook like drama on this team. But let see how they take action on this.

Then that would become a failed experiment and maybe we will hear from the news that Wall again will be traded in the next season. Well, there's really no assurance that he would blend perfectly with the current roster of the Clippers, just like Durant, Irving, and Harden, they had a good start but now looks the remaining two superstars also wants to get out in the team.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing] Crawford vs Spence on: June 29, 2022, 11:51:25 AM
A lot of rumors spreading in the boxing world that these two will fight this October. Hopefully it is true.

Well since the rumored fight date is Oct, 29th 2022 let's wait till Floyd Mayweather gives a date other than this one. \

What does Mayweather have to do with this fight? Sorry, I don't follow, is he one of the promoters of this fight?

I also believe that Crawford will win this fight, there's no way the fight will end on the judges' scorecards, one should be KO here or TKO.

I tried to search for some related news involving Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his connection to the anticipated fight between Terence Crawford and Spence Jr.

What I found is here: Mayweather: When Spence-Crawford is Done You Will Hear It From Me! Established June 14, 2022

There's no mention of anything about the involvement of Mayweather Jr. rather than he just wants to promote the fight. I don't know what does Mayweather have to do with the fight and it looks like he has an intel tracking the negotiation behind the scene. Smiley

Thanks for the article, I read it and it seemed like Crawford might sign with Mayweather's promotion.

This is from the article you shared.
Quote
Mayweather has made it known in the past that he would like to promote Crawford who is a promotional free agent.  Those prior comments combined with Mayweather's comments led to the next question being if a promotional deal with the three-division champion is imminent.

He was very confident like he know some important information about the fight, so we can assume that he could be part of the promotion.

Hi everyone hope you guys are doing great i just want to ask a quick question in last days Elon musk tweeted about the meme token doge and after that the meme tokens are trending so i found one good project named Hippoinu.io the first web 3.0 aggregator where user can earn rewards in all meme tokens and i think investing in this project is legit and they have a presale on pinksale on 26th june 14:00 UTC i am thinking to take part in the presale but i am scared of losing money so i need suggestions from you guys should i invest in it or not . I also share you website and website link
website: https://hippoinu.io/
whitepaper: https://hippoinu.io/whitepaper-en.pdf
Have you heard that Elon Musk is promoting this project on Twitter? If you hear this, that seems possible to see this pumping and hyped but if not, you can't expect it that way.

However, even to say that Elon Musk promoted another project again, I'm not sure of this will gain more attention anymore after he does to Dogecoin and much more for meme coins. I'd just to remind you OP the risk of investing in unreliable projects especially if it is only built with hype as it was very close to a sad end, probably an exit scam. We don't have to get hooked up with such a promising look of the project but rather consider the purpose of its creation as this will help to measure the capability to stay longer.

This is have been discussed so many times and it was clear to see that the safety of your wallets depends on you as a holder. It is to note that online wallets are prone to hacking but offline wallets have also no excuse if YOU as the owner/holders are deemed careless to handle it. So, no matter what type of wallet you used, it is either an offline or online wallet, you can't just ignore the possibility that one day you will get hacked. That is why making a split and storing your crypto in different wallets is advisable, especially if you hold a huge amount of BItcoin or crypto assets just to prevent from losing it all in a single attack.

It looks like Clippers will be pretty aggressive this 2022 free agency. Apart from Wall, they are targeting to add a few more:

Sources: John Wall, Rockets agree to contract buyout; Clippers likely to sign 5-time All-Star in free agency

^ Probably not a bad move if they could get them for cheap. Question now is who are they going to let go to free up the roster for the new guys? I hope the management don't break the core of this team. I think they only need one or two additions before they could challenge for the championship again.

Honestly, the Clippers' performance last season surprised me as they were able to reach the play-in tournament even without their key players. So I agree with you that the Clippers shouldn't change their roster too much, although it's clear that the signing of John Wall would make them much better, and they would have a chance to contend for the title again. Of course, that will only be possible if George and Leonard are healthy and Wall performs as well as he did before.


PG wasn't healthy last season but the Clippers are still winning games, now, if John Wall will join Leonard and PG, I think they will improve especially int he playoffs. I like to see John Wall again doing his thing, because he can lead a team and I hope he will blend well with the two superstars.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ETH gas fees are low....A great time to get in? on: June 27, 2022, 10:55:02 PM
It seems that the persistent bear market drastically reduced ETH's network congestion. Gas fees have been ranging as low as 17 Gwei to 30 Gwei on average.
I'm curious where you got this data from. Can you share? I checked etherscan and ethgasnow for comparison and they are giving me over 40 gwei for the lowest priority and it even went up to as high as 70 gwei. That doesn't look like bear market changed anything.

What does eth gas price have anything to do with your decision to buy eth for investment purposes? It's not like you are going to trade a couple of times and spend a dollar worth for each transaction.
I think that was just a short gas fee reduction and it surge back right after having another network congestion. It usually happens when there is a spike in the transactions and this is similar to Bitcoin. We can be lucky if we got the cheap trx fees by now as it was surely last only for a few minutes.
But, this was not the reason to stop and ignore the chance as to whether the gas fee will reduce or not, this will not affect the potential of Ethereum.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Swapping Bitcoin for "stablecoin": Smart move or disloyalty? on: June 27, 2022, 10:14:28 PM
Bitcoin is freedom and it still provides freedom at any time, and it's also not a trap that you have to be trapped in to use it. After all, the main purpose of bitcoin is a means of payment, holding is just an external reason created by the community which is oriented towards price rather than function.

No loyalty needed.
Ohh, that's for real. We don't need to be loyal, we did it just for the purpose.
Yes, holding won't help promote Bitcoin as a form of currency but we indeed helping it to consider as a form of investment. That may be for some reason they have no other option like in the countries where crypto is not accepted they leave no choice but to convert it into USDT.
@OP, do what you think is right, it was your money, it was your Bitcoin. May you can convert some of it to stablecoins, that perhaps still no wrong with that in fact, many holders do.
