1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Future of bounty campaign. on: January 21, 2020, 04:27:26 PM
Whatever the rank is, it doesn't matter anymore. As bounty is not good like before. Well, market was at peak last late 2017 to early 2018 and after that nothing happened. In my own experience, when the bear market started that was the time that scampanies are booming and no successful project for me, whether for bounty or even investment.

Scammers appeared before the beginning of the bear market. I think that the main reason for the collapse of the ICO market were scammers. If investors were protected by regulations, there would certainly not be so many scam projects. We have to wait for regulations and then investors will come back, new projects will appear and bounty campaigns will pay off again.
In any case, the controlling structures of the cryptocurrency market cannot be independent, and on this issue it is worth paying attention only to the future legalization of cryptocurrency in certain states.  If the government recognizes cryptocurrency as a digital asset, then the relevant laws will control and protect all cryptocurrency assets, as well as their user.  If they are punished for fraud in the cryptocurrency market, then investors with a great desire will invest in promising new  projects.

Guys, of course, all your statements have common sense and each review has its own rational kernel.  But it seems to me that in the current period it would be nice to provide statistics on implemented IEO projects and what results these projects showed.  It seems to me that more than 90% of all IEO projects have not yet shown their worth at all, even despite the fact that trading immediately took place on such famous exchanges as binance.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 8 reasons to start playing blockchain games on: January 20, 2020, 04:25:33 PM
Of course, the author of the topic brought really very interesting 8 reasons why people can start playing blockchain games, but it seems to me that a gambler who is trying to make money with the help of the game will be forced and will certainly invest his money in this game to get  corresponding result.  After all, the developers of such games were counting on this.  Of course, I agree with the opinion that playing on the blockchain increases the chances of winning any player, since no one can control such a game and fake the results of the game.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: McAfee in Trouble ? on: January 20, 2020, 03:56:08 PM
Based on all the reviews that sound about McAfee on bitcointalk, I donít know how to relate to this person, because I always considered this person a scammer, because he wants to give the name Satoshi Nakamoto himself.  But today I meet such reviews of cryptocurrency users who feel sorry for this person or who justify certain of his actions and statements.  I think that there is enough unverified news in the media, because of which it is impossible to fully assess the situation.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: Where's my free money? on: January 19, 2020, 12:20:25 PM
MCafee takes it too seriously. Or maybe nobody's listening. Maybe he thinks he's popular. When he suggests shitcoins, he can sometimes be a pump. It went through this period. The market has new power holders. Justin and CZ are now more popular. I think they need to pay attention to the signs they make about bitcoin price.
This happens in all the markets, during a period of time a financial manager makes a few correct predictions and then people begin to follow him thinking that he has the golden touch and that every prediction that he gives will eventually become true, this was the case with McAfee for some time, but now since it's obvious that his predictions about the price of bitcoin are not going to become true in the time period that he specified then people are giving their backs to him and looking for someone else to follow.
Undoubtedly, there are supporters of McAfee on the cryptocurrency market, although everyone considers him a fraud one way or another, especially considering the fact that he pretends to be nakamoto satoshi and cannot provide secret keys to bitcoin satoshi nakamoto.  But I am beginning to be alarmed by too active improvements in the position of Bitcoin SV, which has increased in price by almost 100%, while not forgetting the fact that this altcoin is fully supported by this person.
6  Economy / Economics / Re: Global Wave of Debt Is Largest, Fastest in 50 Years on: January 19, 2020, 11:08:01 AM
Only by zooming in on the global economic situation, everything is shrinking, and the debt continues to increase.

Quote
Our debt-ridden world economy continues to stack up more IOUs. According to recent estimates, the global debt is now around $ 253 trillion or 322% of GDP - a record high that Bitcoin is wagging its finger at.


It is notable that now one of the best alternatives to global debt is Bitcoin, although some economists classify it as a high-risk investment, it is essential to have it today, as a protection measure. Adoption will quickly be a fact, knowing that it can be used as a possible refuge value, people will not hesitate for a second to do so.

Of course, I agree with you that Bitcoin is already a good alternative, even if the degree of risk is very high.  Nevertheless, it is necessary to take into account the fact that only certain people have access to Bitcoin, because most lack knowledge and a certain level of practical experience.  Almost 95% of the citizens of a particular country will have the results of their financial situation exactly as their governments allow them to have.  And given the current attitude of officials towards cryptocurrency, humanity will continue to suffer from unprofessional actions of the government and from their manipulations.
7  Economy / Economics / Re: The Government-Backed Digital Dollar (USD) on: January 19, 2020, 10:50:34 AM
This is a fairly sensitive topic.  Facebook failed to negotiate with the US government about creating its own currency, Libra.  On the other side of the globe, China is working hard to create the yuan based on Blockchain technology.  I am waiting to see if the Chinese economy will be like if they put CNY into operation.  If successful, the US government must change its mind to catch up with China.  I have witnessed the transition from cash to non-cash from applications like Alipay, Wechat ... of their country.  Currently, China's neighbors are learning that.
I have always been convinced that the government in many states does not want to use cryptocurrency as a means of payment, because they can lose control of the financial sector of their state.  Each government, in order to avoid any problems and solve the tasks at the expense of the financial well-being of its citizens, creates inflation and prints new banknotes of the national currency.  How they will deal with digital currency is unknown.  Perhaps the national cryptocurrency will also be subject to similar fraud and manipulation by the government.
8  Economy / Speculation / Re: Will bitcoin will move up if there is a war with Iran on: January 16, 2020, 09:10:39 AM


Have you not seen how Bitcoin is rising even more when there is no war? Why are you equating wars with Bitcoin price increase.

The dreaded Iran and US war, which was more like an imagination rather than an actual possibility, has been over. And Bitcoin is rising very fast.  The tension between the two countries has already subsided. And Bitcoin has just made an ATH in two months.
If you think logically on this topic, it is quite possible to assume that an increase in demand for Bitcoin will increase its price instantly.  And if we assume a real threat of military operations on the territory of Iran, then most citizens and big business will need to save their money through profitable investments, and in this situation, buying a cryptocurrency will be a profitable step for these people.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Did Satoshi think that quantum computers will exist? on: January 15, 2020, 05:46:15 PM
Of course. As well as he thought about cold fusion nuclear reactors.
The point is that 10 years ago quantum had the same status as cold fusion.

Only in the last 5 years, this came true. And the technology is still very problematic in use, just as the first computers like eniac.

Still, just like in military - you protect yourself from current threats, not ones which may or may not exist in the next 20 years or so (considering that in computers, 20 years is enormous amount of time, much bigger than in military itself)
In fact, when a military threat or military competition arises between countries, each country acts at its discretion in order to contrast one weapon with a completely different one.  The same applies to the computer, because if you are already talking about a quantum computer today, especially considering the beginning of its development several decades ago, today you need to work on ensuring security for cryptocurrency, since everyone should understand the capabilities of a quantum computer and how much  helpless may be Bitcoin in front of this machine. But as I understand it, most users worry about their earnings in the near future in order to earn more money using cryptocurrency volatility, and they are not interested in security in the future.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Sending Bitcoin over Bluetooth? on: January 15, 2020, 05:18:38 PM
It seems to me that transferring any data using Bluetooth is very dangerous, because there will be risks to lose your money.  Of course, it would be nice to use Bluetooth to transfer cryptocurrencies when paying for these goods in the store, because in reality not all Internet services are available.  In addition, my country has such retail outlets where there is still very weak communication between mobile operators, since the room is located in basements or in other places that are difficult to access for the signal.  In this case, bluetooth would provide very good opportunities for paying for goods using cryptocurrency.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Bounty Campaigns now trial and error method on: January 14, 2020, 05:56:17 PM
I think there should be some sort of remedy to hunters for their time spent on project promotion even if such project fails to raise anything during ICOs or IEOs. Or payment should be made in stable coins to escrow accounts to stop hunters from wasting their time promoting campaigns. Some projects raise funds yet don't pay hunters.
For all the time I have been working in the cryptocurrency market, I have already come across many different types of problems for bounty hunters.  Today, Bounty Hunters not only do not receive the earned remuneration, but also face such problems when a team of a certain project comes up with various tricks in order to pay as little percentage of the remuneration as possible, fewer participants or to aggravate the reward by some new conditions, already  a long perfect bounty company.  Of course, such cases can be safely called fraudulent actions on the part of the team, but the fact is that the activities of the Bounty Hunters are nowhere protected by law and therefore not one Bounty Hunter will be able to protect their rights.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Ethereum: Sinking ship or Sleeping Giant? on: January 14, 2020, 05:34:59 PM
I honestly don't hesitate to say that ethereum is a giant altcoin that is sleeping. I personally am very confident with this altcoin, on the other hand I also will not hesitate to add some more Eth if I have capital. and I think some of the investors out there also have the same thoughts about the potential of ethereum for future investment.
Quite right, but it seems to me that today it is Ethereum that shows the best scale of growth in its price in the entire cryptocurrency market, and these figures are even higher than bitcoin.  I believe that eth has really great potential due to its technical characteristics, in addition, the team brings a lot of ideas to life, which attracts the attention of investors and potential users.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: If you have a $2000 and had to invest in crypto which coins would you buy ? why? on: January 13, 2020, 05:09:00 PM
Of course, itís good if a person has $ 2,000 for investments in cryptocurrency, but the most important thing is that these funds are not the last in his home budget.  But if we talk about profitable investments, who do not have a certain experience, it is better not to invest in new projects, and for a greater guarantee, pay attention to the most rated cryptocurrencies, which many forum users have already fired about.  As always, for me the leader is ethereum, as well as Tron, and ripple.  It would be possible to invest a certain amount in bitcoin, but I believe that for such investments you need to have a slightly larger starting capital.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: if anyone hacked your account then who is responsible??? on: January 13, 2020, 04:37:52 PM
In a sense, if the exhange gave you all the security options to protect your account. It is your accountability because it is your money and you have to secure it. You are the one who makes it vulnerable to hacking. There are lots of ways to secure your account now aside from password. 2FA I think is a good one.
The fact is that when it comes to cryptocurrency exchanges and their security, then I believe that it is best to choose not only by the rating of the resource, but also because of what security levels the resource provides for the user.  For me, it is very important not only the presence of two-factor authentication of Google, but also the confirmation of all actions using SMS by phone number and e-mail.  Perhaps this set of security is difficult for the user, but it increases the guarantee of safety of funds.  Of course, this applies only to the user account, but nevertheless there are problems for the resource itself, when users lose their coins due to problems that the administration allows.
15  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Full time trading is boring on: January 11, 2020, 12:09:03 PM
Many cryptocurrency users compare cryptocurrency trading with gambling, and therefore those users who feel the excitement of cryptocurrency trading cannot get bored with this activity.  In addition, given the fact that trading has good results and the user makes a profit, then personally under these circumstances I will not be bored.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Now that we touched $8,000, what's next? on: January 09, 2020, 05:39:04 PM
the evaluation will remain below 8000, the closing weekend is always the determinant of where the price will go.

I think if Trump can again increase the value of the USD after this quite tense week, then the BTC will still be affected, at least there are still gaps that make speculators follow developments that are not only based on charts.
If we talk about the ability of the government to print certain amounts of money, then of course in this regard, cryptocurrency is of great importance to society, but until that time, while cryptocurrency is used legally in everyday life, a lot of time will pass.  And today we are witnessing a very vivid resistance of states to the recognition of cryptocurrencies regarding its value.  One way or another, all this negatively affects the cryptocurrency market, which is still in a fever from the actions of speculators.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Good sign for market on: January 09, 2020, 05:00:51 PM
I don't want to go on in circles and just say that for Bitcoin this can be a good year because we might be seeing ton of bulltraps before the actual bull trend. Let's just wait for further movement to make sure we can't get our emotion every time the year ends, in my opinion. Let's just let Bitcoin sit on this first and have a break from further speculating, and in my opinion let's all wait for the bitcoin halvening to come and see what it brings to the market.
That is an interesting thought, during the previous days the price of bitcoin has gone up very rapidly and many thought this was the bull market we all wanted and the price at the beginning of this day went up as well but now the bears are making a comeback and we may get a negative day instead of a positive one.

If this tendency continues then that would have been the first bull trap of the year and we do not know how many we will have to witness to finally get to see a bull market if we get to see it at all during this year.
The fact that the results of the cryptocurrency market today show me is very worrying, and therefore I transferred a significant part of my Bitcoin to USDT to fix the amount of crypto currency funds at $ 8,000.  It seems to me that at least until April the price will decline.  I think that my act will be correct, because in the near future I will be able to buy Bitcoin a little cheaper.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: You the local Bitcoin joke in town? on: January 07, 2020, 09:02:29 AM
absolutely right, I guess that's what I'm experiencing too. In 2017, I was very active in promoting bitcoin to my friends, but now they are very sorry, and even made fun of me, because the price of bitcoin is thrown away from their plans.
Stay patient, friend. We will show them that what we have introduced them is reality. Maybe now they can laugh at us because the price of Bitcoin has dropped not as we expected, but we have to be patient to see the price of Bitcoin will rise again in next year.
I think that those people who taunt a person do not need to pay attention, because they do not understand anything in the cryptocurrency and do not receive any information about everything that happens on the cryptocurrency market in order to objectively condemn the actions of a person.  For example, I used a lot of my Bitcoins in 2016 when the price went up to $ 500 per coin, and when in 2017 the price of Bitcoin went up to $ 20,000, I really regretted what I did.  And my wife doesnít even want to talk about this topic, because it is because of this that she may begin to have a tantrum.  After all, it was because of her influence that I spent all my bitcoin.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Poll: Who is the 2019 Bitcoin Drama Queen on: January 07, 2020, 08:41:40 AM
Donít know much about Vitalik and others. But even a person with very little knowledge of whats happening in crypto world knows the Drama created by Craig Wright. He is only faketoshi.

Well, he's already quite popular but with a negative reputation intended only to spread fuds and to brainwash peoppe who doesn't really believes in him. I do really think that it is a waste of time and money to entertain his assets and cryptocurrency.
The fact is that Craig Wright is also unpleasant to me, because the person who manipulates information and tries to lie is a scammer and any scammer has no excuse for his actions.  Nevertheless, his popularity brings him certain benefits.  I donít think that everything he does is just for fun.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Ethereum Price Analysis: Bear Market Ahead on: January 06, 2020, 12:46:44 PM
Ethereum is really struggling to come back at a high price, to touch $ 200 ethereum unable to last for several months, but what the ethereum team has done makes me believe and continue to support them

Just goes to show how little price actually seems to correlate with underlying strength in altcoins. Bitcoin, you more or less see everything priced in, hence the yearly lows keep getting higher. Not so much the same with Ethereum, you won't be surprised to see lower lows every year until full confidence returns with ETH 2.0
and also until bull market shows up again and the growth of Bitcoin will lead everything to the top again,$200 VALUE is too easy for ethereum to reached out because this Currency even hit almost $1,500 in 2018 so 200bucks is a chicken if the halving this May brings another hype to the market.
Of course, Ethereum shows different lows almost every year, but at the end of 2019, Ethereum was $ 127, which is twice as much for the same period in late 2018, when the price was $ 76.  If we compare the trend of rising and falling prices for cryptocurrency, according to what we are seeing today, we should expect a significant increase in the price of ETH until mid-April.  Compared with the same period in 2018, the price can rise four or five times more from today's price indicators.  But this is just my guess.
