1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2021 NBA Season on: Today at 09:10:30 AM
No NBA today in what seems like the first time in a while. Tomorrow brings the Suns vs the Clippers for a game two matchup that will still not be featuring Chris Paul or Kawhi Leonard. Devon Booker stole the show in game 1, but Playoff P wasn’t too bad either. I’m looking for Beverly to be a pesky nightmare tomorrow and Paul George to be putting up lots of shots. I think DeAndre Ayton is the difference maker though. If he continues to dominate in the paint the Suns are hard to stop.
We got some good rest too from an every night session of watching.  Cheesy
Zubac will also be a game-changer for the Clippers. We will witness here if he can do something about the massive offensive attack of Ayton.
Clippers cannot do the same play as what they did with Jazz using Gobert as their attack point because of his slow reaction.
Ayton is faster than Gobert and help defense will always come because of the Suns' chemistry on both ends.
Small ball should be set aside now to have a chance to steal 1 game.

Bitcoin was made too early for us people.
We don't even have the guts to take the risk of volatility and apply it to our daily system.
Because of that, I agree that it will be stablecoins that are near the truth of being the near future of financial development.

20 years. That may be the time that we will be ready for Bitcoin to be included in everything. I hope I am still alive to see that day.

Absolutely, in my opinion, that's the one of the most unpredictable seasons in the NBA.
I would have never imagined that the Nets and Lakers would be eliminated in the playoffs quickly and they were favorites to win this season
Another detail was the numerous injuries during this season, which made the NBA even more unpredictable.

If every player will be safe until the end of this season, maybe it will be the Suns who will take the throne.
Booker is in his prime and he gained a lot of confidence thanks to Chris Paul who has been a great effective veteran to teach the young Suns.
With Ayton also gaining experience he is becoming a big threat under the rim. The Clippers can't just leave him there because I'm sure he will get more offensive rebounds or others will if he can position a good box.
I think that is why Booker had a triple-double thanks to Ayton's success in boxing out.

Fourth, pride. It's like admitting defeat.
If ever this happens it will be a whole new world. Yes, just like the song.
Kidding aside, it's really the volatility but there are already stable coins that were created, and yet they won't use it still.
Transparency will also be an issue. They don't want anyone to just peek at every movement they will make. It's not about privacy but secrecy.
5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2021 NBA Season on: June 19, 2021, 11:06:44 AM
But overall, both teams will miss their respective key players. Although the odds are widely gap with the Suns as favorites on Game 1, I don't look at it that way.
I have the same view.
And the only player I have been thinking of is Patrick Beverley. This dude will be the key player of the Clippers.
Be the pest for Booker or CP3 (when he is able to play). In terms of speed, Beverley could match both guards of Suns. Height is not a problem if he could stop them before they can even take off or force them to pass the ball.
While Suns' key player will be Ayton. Zubac will probably end up in foul trouble most of their game.
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: What Practical Advice For A Beginner Trader? on: June 19, 2021, 07:51:25 AM
My practical advice is to be practical.
Don't force yourself if you are not good at it. But if you are decided to go that way then try trading what you can only afford to lose.
This means you won't regret it even if it goes to zero.
Using that kind of mentality you are avoiding the bad reactions to swings. i.e. Panic selling or greed.
Create a plan. How many dollars are you aiming for, just for starters? $100 profit? If you hit that what's next? If necessary you should create a record for it. 
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Prayer and gambling. on: June 18, 2021, 03:34:47 PM
spiritual power or consulting to God before placing bet can't do anything related to winning in gambling.
Because I think people have a ritual to do something and it is considered to have a positive effect. Maybe you won't believe it. But most people do prayer and effort. They don't just use strategy but expect help from those they believe in.
There are those who believe it is luck if they win, but luck will not keep coming, so they need a strategy and pray, so that it will be eased. IMO

Or, it became a habit. Gamblers do that. They blow their cards, they wish something with lady luck, or they have some kind of habitual movement before putting the bet. i.e. cross fingers.  Grin
If it gives them fun to do it or they think it makes the chances higher then why not.
But everything will go down to how the roll will come out. It's luck-based mostly using an algorithm like how the raffles are being done.
There are games where it could be cheated like lotto, dice, and other computer-based games today.
God won't help with such a game. If He will talk to you, He might just say to use that to fill your tummy. Just like how your mom taught you.  Grin

For me, it's too late already. You may still gain ROI in this NFT game but it may take longer.
That's why there are people who apply for scholarships. They don't want to invest money anymore but they are the kind who are willing to play the game for profits.
No risk, yes for profits even with just a little amount.

It's up to you. It's a good game and it was built a year ago and still gaining popularity but just slower than last year.
Alright, I am now contradicting myself.  Grin Good luck.

What an exciting series between Bucks vs Nets.
Khris Middleton was on fire. I believe, in game 7 it will be even more exciting.

I was looking the game stats and I realized, the Bucks had 51 rebounds, 15 of which were offensive and they also had 6 blocks.

I believe the Bucks played with a lot of desire and determination to not lose the game.
Yes, they are in the zone defensively.
I never thought Tucker could defend Durant that way. They even discuss how they move while the game is on, which is funny. Sportsmanship is intact and I hope they can continue this kind of game without the need to fight with their fists or headbutts.
You could not see the effect of what Tucker did on the stat sheet but yet if he wasn't there Bucks might have already fallen in Game 4.
What did the Nets lack to lose the game? Joe Harris. MIA with outside shots.

Dude, that's a good story. Perhaps we could make a film out of it.
"The Real Faketoshi" How about that? You like the title?

With just how you input words in your sentences, I would not believe you are Satoshi. I kept on reading back all his posts and his English writing skills are good.
Not like yours or even mine.
If you need money just ask honestly and not making such claims.
How could you miss your own account passwords, private keys, or whatever you forgot? You are freaking Satoshi Nakamoto and you could find ways to open it.
Try brute-forcing it.  Grin

Those odds will modify after next games because 76ers will beat Hawks in 7 games.

For me , this season of NBA play-offs is barely watchable because of the injuries of the players and remember when LeBron said to NBA that this type of schedule will affect a lot of great players and will create lots of injuries. Here we are now, with most important players in NBA this season have been injured and what is even more sadly is that some of the players will miss the chance to bring their team to a final or even help them win it...

So yea , for me the favorite cannot be pronounce yet as all of them have their chance. What is next ? Trae young to get injured ? KD ? Who we gonna watch then ?
He actually said it again.

They all didn’t wanna listen to me about the start of the season. I knew exactly what would happen. I only wanted to protect the well being of the players which ultimately is the PRODUCT & BENEFIT of OUR GAME! These injuries isn’t just “PART OF THE GAME”. It’s the lack of PURE
It's true and I don't think NBA didn't expect that.
They might know it would happen but they just ignored it. IIRC, they even went to the extent of posting facts that injuries this year and last year were lower during the bubble. The hell are they talking about.
They want to finish the game with speed so they can start early this year. It became greed or the investors and owners are pushing the commissioner to rush things out so they could recover from all the losses last season.
12  Economy / Economics / Re: Own a house or rent one? Quick survey! on: June 17, 2021, 01:56:05 PM
$400 a month, $100 on the mortgage then bills, food, etc.
I once experienced renting and the problem is, it's not yours. There will always be a scary part where the owner may have some reasons to take you out.
A family member wants it, a friend or just someone more important than you. I don't like that to happen especially when you have kids and got a lot of stuff to carry to a new house.

When you have your own house, you get old you still have a roof to settle and the kids can buy their own once they are old enough.
Security. You can do anything with your own house while with rent, you will need the permission of the owner.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What features should a good altcoin project have? on: June 17, 2021, 08:38:43 AM
I don't know why but what always comes to my mind when asked by these questions are old school coins.
I guess it was tattooed in my mind and I can never erase it anymore.

I would always suggest Bitcoin first, then Ethereum. Top coins always tend to be profitable even in just a short time.
Look at Bitcoin, if you bought 1 BTC weeks ago then you are already at $4000 profit.
New altcoins, new projects, and new risks have no telling how it will end up even with DYOR. I prefer looking at people behind it and be sure they are what they say they are.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2021 NBA Season on: June 17, 2021, 06:34:14 AM
Now that's what you call unexpected especially for the Clippers team stepping up with Kawhi out of the game.
A big win for them and so does the Hawks coming back from an enormous deficit.

Bogdanovic and Clarkson were hot for the Jazz but damn, PG13 can melt all that heat they are producing.
What's their next step? Royce Oneal cannot handle him. Gobert is also a problem being attached to the rim and doesn't want to go up and defend.
I wish Coach Snyder reacted better on that small lineup input of the Clippers. Take Gobert out and trust the bench.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How is gambling taxed? on: June 16, 2021, 03:49:05 PM
It's kind of a deep discussion when it comes to taxation.
Of course, every government will put a tax on everything even with just 50 grams of salt in the grocery. They won't let a big business like a casino to get away from it. That's a large amount of money they will be missing.

When it comes to an online gambling site, I believe they are taxed on what country their site is based at.
Like for example, Sportsbet.io.

Sportsbet.io is owned and operated by mBet Solutions NV (Schout Bij Nacht Doormanweg 40, P.O. Box 4745, Curaçao).

I won't worry about how the gamblers are taxed. Maybe with every bet, the tax is included in it or at withdrawal fees.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2021 NBA Season on: June 16, 2021, 01:11:44 PM
Bucks blew away their only golden opportunity in the series to beat the Nets, now they have to win 2 games in order to beat the Nets in the series and that would be tough because once Irving is fully recovered, they will have to face the big 3 of the Nets.

Their defense on Durant was not carefully planned, they should double him and put somebody on him as he was the only one who is consistently helping the team to win, yes Green was there but if they can stop Durant, Bucks would have won that game.
They forgot what they did in the first half. They had the best chemistry at that time but not until the 2nd half.
I guess the showers made them cold with each other.  Grin

Golden opportunity. Yes, you could put it that way. Harden was still looking for his rhythm and Kyrie was out.
If they didn't mess around and made every possession as important as possible then it could've been a win for them.
I was waiting for Middleton to answer at every field goal Durant makes, but there's no answer. KD made sure his rhythm won't be stopped with the eye for W.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What are some long term projects for holding? on: June 16, 2021, 08:14:52 AM
You would always want BTC as your main investment even if for just 6 months.
There's always a possibility that it would end up being pumped at that span of time.
Ethereum is always next to my list then, BNB or binance coin.

I would not recommend meme coins for long-term holding. You will just end up losing the value of it or just ROI which would suck since you wasted time waiting and checking every once in a while. You could try NFT coins that promise a good project but I don't know much of them yet.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How does on-line compete with the VIP experience on: June 16, 2021, 06:28:43 AM
All they could do now is give bonuses.
It's not the same experience as physical casinos but it's still perks. One wish that I want is the availability of other spreads to VIPs only.
One example is they put +5 +6 +7 to spreads of sports gambling, that's the limit. What if there will be more options for VIPs?
In that way, it may also look appealing to gamblers to grab the VIP program giving them a wide selection of bets.
No one is forcing them, it's a good promotion only.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: Is money the root of all evil as the poor to thinks? on: June 16, 2021, 04:07:29 AM
I prefer the question of, what is the root of happiness.
You're rich, you have a large sum of money and big businesses but they all need to be maintained for you to avoid getting broke and eat canned goods again.
Doing all that, can you still make yourself happy while you are too busy making more money? I don't think so.
But it doesn't mean the poor don't have problems but they can be happy with little things unlike the rich.
I always thought there should be a balance for everything but it can't be done. Greed will always be above all. Next to that is selfishness.

Money ain't really the root of evil, it's the usage that makes it look wrong. It was made for our life to be easier when trading goods and I think we should remember that definition.

I wish they could add it with online betting.
I am not a huge fan but I watched some of the events.

Eddie Hall was one of the famous personalities from 2012 until he reached success in 2017. Sadly, he didn't defend his title in 2018 but he did participate in BSM and won it. There must be some way to gain fans and viewers for this competition, especially in this pandemic.
The PR trashtalk didn't work either.
Eddie Hall to Thor 2018:

He won because there was no one else there to take it. His title is not as well earned as my title, that’s how I feel.
Using social media could be helpful.
