The tech giants are spying on all of us (Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook).  I don't believe what Zuckerberg said at the hearing, your data is stored even if you delete your facebook account.  The sad thing is most people don't care enough to do anything.  We are all knowingly carrying around spy devices (phones) that track our every move and what we say.

I got a friend who can't live without gambling even for a day,he is much older than me and he is working in a company and getting salary to cover his life expenses but he got the desire to be a richer person so he tr gambling everyday and he hoping that someday he will be a millionare but he is just losing all his hard earned money.
The same case is with many people. They want to be rich in short time but it is just their desire and they choose gambling to fulfill their desire. But I want to say that if it was possible everyone would be a gambler now because everyone wants to make money as soon as possible. The result always differs from the expectations and they even lose the money for their daily expenses. Their life conditions become miserable gradually.

Its easy to become rich over a long period of time but who wants to be a millionaire when they are in their 60s.  You can enjoy wealth much more when your younger, thats why a lot of people gamble.  But on the opposite end, there are mega wealthy people that gamble even though they are rich.  I suspect it is juts an adrenaline rush thing, there end goal is not actually the money.

Some people say that it is xspec, but the holder is too scattered
 pudi x? Very high market cap ,how to find dark horse x100?
Talk about your optimistic altcoin and reason
iota xem neo start ,What are the commonalities of these targets?
After the next bull market is completed,Let's go back to this post and see who is the prophet

Every coin in the top 20 pumps when bitcoin goes up.  If your looking for those 100x dark horse coins you have to do a lot of research and have a lot of luck.  I'm sure more projects will do 100x but the problem is finding them.  For every coin that rises that much there will be 10 that fail horribly.  If you are really lookinh for these type of returns make sure you only use a small portion of your funds because there is a lot of risk involved.

I'm expecting the Cleveland Cavaliers to be a lottery team again with James.  I don't think the Lakers will able to compete with the Rockets or the Warriors but they should at least make the playoffs.

Anyone else think Seattle deserves an NBA franchise?   Maybe the Clippers or different small market team will end up moving to Seattle if the NBA doesn't expand its number of teams.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is CyberMiles better than Ethereum? Will change e-commerce? on: October 20, 2018, 10:59:07 AM
It's doubtful that they will get anywhere.  Too many small projects are reaching for the sky and setting unrealistic goals.  Ethereum is already huge and is probably the most used cryptocurrency.  This just sounds like hype marketing to get more people to invest their money.  They will ultimately be left holding worthless bags of yet another failed project.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is there an institution that protects the circulation of Bitcoin? on: October 20, 2018, 10:51:18 AM
The circulation amount is already set by the code, it can't be changed without a fork.  This is one of the reason bitcoin continues to grow in value.  While adoption increases the inflation rate becomes lower with each halving.  The miners are the ones that generate the coins but over 70% of them are located in China.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Drawback of all new cryptocoins!Confusion? on: October 19, 2018, 11:55:08 AM
More coins is actually a good thing because it creates competition and helps bitcoin improve on its features.  Can there be too many companies? Can there be too many restaurants? In the end it will be survival of the fittest and consumers will choose what coin they like to use.  Also its clear that people like to have different choices, there is no reason that a lot of different coins can't succeed. 
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How do you guys make sure that the casinos dont cheat you? on: October 19, 2018, 11:46:02 AM
Only use gambling sites that have a good reputation and have a valid license.  A lot of scam casinos exist online but you should generally be fine if you stick with websites that have a good reputation.  You can read about any scam accusations against casinos right here on bitcointalk.  It's also advised not to send a large balance at once incase they try to freeze your funds with a background check.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ICOs are not dead, just maturing in a positive way. on: October 19, 2018, 11:35:49 AM
It's very foolish to declare ICOs to be dead.  The crypto hype has gone down a bit but there will always be innovative ideas and new technology that needs funding.  I'm sure there are smart investors doing countless hours of research on new ICOs while most of the crypto investors are whining about the current prices.
10  Economy / Economics / Re: Curious. At what BTC price would you capitulate? on: October 19, 2018, 11:28:38 AM
Its a terrible feeling to watch your investments crash.  But it is an even worse feeling when you sit on the sidelines and watch something skyrocket that you could of invested in.  With that being said, there is too much support at the 6k levels for bitcoin to drop much further.  IF it somehow did drop below 6k again I would just use the opportunity to buy more coins.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Lost $350k / 54 BTC gambling, need help :( on: October 19, 2018, 11:19:12 AM
I'm saddened to hear you lost quite a few bitcoins gambling.  At least you were able to cut your losses before you lost everything.   One of the worst mistakes a gambler can do is to keep chasing their losses until they end up broke.

If you still have good health and a loving family your already rich.  The money can be fun but without health and relationships it really doesn't mean much.  Be grateful for what you have and don't take anything for granted.
12  Economy / Speculation / Re: Will bitcoin get to $10,000 this year again? on: October 16, 2018, 11:40:48 AM
I think the bitcoin will at least reach $15,000 by the end of this year.  A lot of big investors want to buy coins in anticipation of the next halving.  Bitcoin inflation will be decreasing and value will only be rising. It only took a few months last year for bitcoin to soar to 20k and there is no reason it won't happen again this year.
13  Economy / Economics / Re: ICO Investments Why Risky? on: October 15, 2018, 12:31:34 PM
If you want to get astronomical gains you have to get into a project at ground level.  Think of how much money the early investors of Facebook and Amazon made.  But for every Amazon there will be hundreds of companies that will fail miserably.  The risk vs reward potential is enormous when investing in start ups.  This is why I never recommend going all in on one project.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How do you guys make sure that the casinos dont cheat you? on: October 15, 2018, 12:20:00 PM
You can read reviews by other players and see if there are any justified scam accusations against a certain casino.  Crypto Casinos have a bad reputation among regular gamblers but there are a lot of reputable ones if you actually do your research.  Also you can find the odds on each game and make informed bets to increase your odds.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: ETh will hit $1000 end of this year on: October 15, 2018, 12:14:10 PM
End of 2018 Eth will be back over $1000 and bitcoin will be over $15000

I actually think this is a reachable target for the end of this year.  It only took a couple of months for btc to skyrocket to 20k last year.  I know some people think this bear market will last multiple years but this time is different.  Cryptocurrency is much more mainstream and their are more retail investors accumulating coins for cheap prices.  I firmly believe we will see a bull run by the end of 2018.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why is the USDT crashing? on: October 15, 2018, 12:06:17 PM
There is a lot of speculation that Tether will collapse and become worthless. They have not passed an official audit yet and in their terms and service they are not required to accept tether in exchange for USD.  People are running to the gates to cash out their ether into coins that actually have value before its too late.  This may be another crash similar to bitconnect.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin pump on binance. Already cross 7.5K USDT on: October 15, 2018, 11:56:57 AM
Exchanges often have different prices and you can sometimes take advantage of the arbitrage opportunities.  You have to be quick though because the prices will even out very fast.  I've been reading a lot of articles about tether and how it may collapse since it doesn't have enough USD to back up the printed tether.  This could be a case of people panic exchanging their tether for bitcoin so they don't get left with worthless bags.
18  Other / Politics & Society / Re: US or China: Who would win the AI race? on: October 13, 2018, 11:57:13 AM
As stated earlier in this thread, AI will be the only winner.  The development of Artificial Intelligence is very concerning and it scares me.  I think we should really stop advancing the technology because eventually it will be too intelligent to control.  Once the cat is out of the bag it will be too late and robots will reign over humans.  Some say its inevitable that this will happen but all we have to do is stop developing A.I.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Does this sound realistic? on: October 13, 2018, 11:44:19 AM
This is a good attitude to have OP.  I treat gambling the same as purchasing a movie ticket or buying a video game.  I'm really just paying to have a good time.  The chance of winning money is obviously why most people gamble but I don't think people should get their hopes up too much.  A lot of us just want the chance of strking it big someday.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Re: I feel that the market will not get better. on: October 13, 2018, 11:33:55 AM
Those who are still in panic and think that good times are not going to return again, should be reasonable sensible. Do you really think that this is it? Crypto will stop existing or what?) No, it's just a beginning. We may not see this dizzy growth like it was in 2017, but certainly crypto is going to consolidate and level out. 

The people who are in panic have failed to look back and study history.  Every market goes through big corrections eventually but they always return stronger and reach new highs.  There is so much good news coming out everyday about crypto.  New mining facilities are being opened, new exchanges are opening up, the amount of wallets are increasing.  With everything that is in the works you would have to be a complete fool to think crypto is dead.
