1  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Ohio Resident Charged With Laundering $311M in Bitcoin for AlphaBay on: April 06, 2020, 09:25:51 PM
I'm pretty sure that the authorities are not targeting Harmon because of his mixing service but rather his company is either operating without a license in the USA or it has been proven that his mixing service is an accessory of a proven dark web marketplace that offers illegal activity. There is nothing pointing out that he got arrested because of his mixing service but rather his connection to AlphaBay and committing money laundering through his Mixer.

Proving my point is his official indictment file against him
3. Starting in or about July 2014. HARMON owned and operated a money
transmitting and money laundering business called Helix. Helix was a service linked to and
affiliated with Grams, HARMON's Darknet search engine, and the two services were sometimes
referred to collectively as Grams-Helix. Helix offered an Internet-based service that was
accessible in the District of Columbia and other States.

6. From at least in or about November 2016, Helix partnered with the Darknet market
AlphaBay to provide bitcoin money laundering services for AlphaBay customers.

My guess is the feds are already giving him a deal for them to catch the "bigger fish" and that is the one who is operating AlphaBay and to shut it down for good just like what they did to Ross Ulbricht and his SilkRoad.

One thing to get out of this is the people are so gullible when it comes to what the government is trying to say to them. Kaya ganun nalang yung first impression ng karamihan sa Bitcoin na kahit hindi pa nila alam kung ano talaga ito ay alam na kaagad nila na connected ito sa deep web and ito yung ginagamit ng mga kriminal sa pambili ng droga. Ganito din yung nangyari sa alak noon na illegal dati and sa cannabis na illegal pa din in most parts, just someone in the government declare it is illegal or bad for your health tatatak na ito sa karamihan at madami ng maniniwala, kaya ito din yung mga rason bakit biglang nag-stop yung growth ng Bitcoin eh dahil na din sa first responses ng mga gobyerno sa buong mundo and how they are mislead with their first impression.

Italy has reached itís peak for new cases daily & started to drop now. Hopefully in a week or two weíll get confirmation that Serie A can start again at some point (probably behind closed doors).

With 3,599 new cases today and 636 new deaths? I don't think so, the numbers might have decreased a bit but that is not a sign that the infection is slowing down in Italy. The most realistic approach is to see the number of infection to go down to 0 infections daily to see if it will be safe for them to resume the season or not. It won't be safe for the players to play and it won't be safe for the matches to be played if they know that there are still a lot of people getting infected in their country. I don't even care about this season anymore what's more important is the players are safe and not of them will catch the infection, it's better to sacrifice the season now then risk it all just for the league to resume.

Na-ipost na ito last 3 days ago ni plvbob0070 using the same link you have and also have the same point. You have just created the same topic and content. So @OP baka siguro before you create a topic of your own i-search mo muna kung may na-create ng topic para dito, ang nangyayari nyan is nahahati yung discussion na dapat nasa iisang thread nalang.
5  Local / Pamilihan / Re: Sino sasama sa bagong crypto bahay natin on: April 05, 2020, 07:44:34 PM

It's good that you have named your forum from out Bitcoin creator pero aaminin ko lang hindi ako natutuwa dito na may user kayong pangalan na "Satoshi" na nag-popost sa forum ninyo. Bukod sa impersonation it goes directly the opposite of the "honor" you give to him by allowing another individual to take his name. If this is just a normal member masa-suggest ko lang na i-delete yung account na ito or offer him a name change if this is one of your mods or admins kindly ask him to change his name now. Nakapag-skim ako ng konti sa forum ninyo and I don't think that Satoshi's name is perfect for your forum dahil yung forum mo naman ay hindi cryptocurrency based topics and mas madami pa kayong threads and topics outside Bitcoin and crypto.

But if you base your buy decision on a thin sell wall, and yet on another exchange it's a heavy wall, and the market moves according to the aggregate of all orders on all exchanges, how will your analysis hold any value?


Honestly I wouldn't rely on the bid and ask orders that much as traders could put "dummy orders" just to influence the market in their way. Basically just by relying on bid and ask orders alone you'll just be falling into their traps which would likely lead you into incurring a loss. I would still recommend you into looking at the crypto's technical charts to get the bigger picture outside of the bid and ask of that exchange, this will provide you a much more accurate reading in your analysis. If you are looking at the bid and ask orders then you should check the crypto's 1 minute and 5 minute charts and it's volume to see if there is really a demand going on during that time, if the volume supports the price movement then you should base your decision towards it.
7  Local / Pamilihan / Re: Ano bang makukuha ng Binance kung bibilhin nila ang Coinmarketcap? on: April 05, 2020, 04:31:06 PM
Sa sariling opinyon ko ay hindi magandang move ito na gawin ng Binance, 400 million USD is a lot for a website na may pangit ng reputasyon. Oo isa nga sya sa may pinaka mataas na traffic sa crypto websites na meron tayo but 400 million dollars cannot justify it. With 400 million USD or even less pwede sila gumawa ng sarili nilang department to compete with CoinMarketCap with their own trusted data analysts and support. Alam ko magiging mahirap labanan ang CMC pero I know that if magiging trusted and reliable sila compared sa CMC balang araw ay mauungasan na nila ito. Isang reason lang naman kaya gusto bilihin yung CMC na yan para lang ma monopolize yung market which I think will be a bad thing for us individuals in the crypto industry. Mas gusto niyo ba yun? CMC nalang meron tayo and walang close alterative para dito?
8  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is 51% attack a double-spending threat to bitcoin? on: April 05, 2020, 02:23:25 PM
It looks to be my fault starting this thread by quoting from Satoshi and the white paper but it was the right decision because it doesn't matter how Satoshi presented his work, it matters how he had to present it: as a solution to the double-spending problem!

If bitcoin was not such a solution it wouldn't get any attention, leave alone surviving for more than a decade and surpassing a whopping 120+ billion dollars market cap now in its worst days. We have pooling pressure flaw in bitcoin PoW since the first few months after the Genesis and we have pools and all this 51% threat around since late 2010. Bitcoin didn't survive because polls didn't practically do anything bad as the result of some fragile game theoric analysis. People don't trust a system that is half an inch away from a total failure.

Actually I didn't focused on what Satoshi said of Bitcoin's whitepaper, I merely just touched your argument about it which is clearly stated before you quoted Bitcoin's whitepaper. My answer/post basically was just touching all the arguments you have laid on how Bitcoin is the "solution" for double-spending just because Bitcoin's whitepaper has said it so. So I'm sorry if I got off-topic with your new topic, I was basing it in your OP.

Now, and please stay focused, if the double-spend is solved in the first place regardless of what is happening in the mining scene, what's actually driving the anti-PoW/anti-miner propaganda/instincts in this community? I'm asking about the rationale behind this phobia and the way it is blocking so many scaling ideas and proposals? If double-spending is not going to happen and bitcoin supply won't ever exceed the cap, what else is at stake that makes people nervous about trusting in PoW? 

One having fear/worry on something they believe in won't really go away. The presence of just a possibility of a 51% attack happening alone just put some fear in a lot of people, seeing that there is a possible flaw on how Bitcoin transactions work and how they can be erased, reversed, and be double-spended is something that can cause fear in both the consumer and the producer side of things. Not until we reach a certain level of miners really dominating the network I guess this fear from a 51% attack won't just disappear instantly. 
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is 51% attack a double-spending threat to bitcoin? on: April 04, 2020, 08:28:29 PM
We have proposed a system for electronic transactions without relying on trust. We started with the usual framework of coins made from digital signatures, which provides strong control of ownership, but is incomplete without a way to prevent double-spending. To solve this, we proposed a peer-to-peer network using proof-of-work to record a public history of transactions that quickly becomes computationally impractical for an attacker to change if honest nodes control a majority of CPU power.

You forgot the "Conclusion" part of Bitcoin's whitepaper, Bitcoin only has a "proposed solution" for double-spending but was never guaranteed by Saotoshi himself aside from that Satoshi is also aware that a 51% attack is possible that is why he is talking about PoW on transactions on how should it be "computationally impractical" so that it would be "impractical" for an attacker to infiltrate the network. But Satoshi didn't even dived in to the possibility of a 51% attack from happening in Bitcoin's network, I know it would require a lot of resources for an individual or a group to pull through and control 51% of the hash rate but if we are only talking about the chances of this happening I know we all know that a 51% attack has a chance to happen.
10  Local / Pilipinas / Re: Philippine SEC warns of crypto Ponzi Scheme on: April 04, 2020, 06:18:11 PM
Hindi lang si Boy Abunda at Manny Villar yung ginagamit nilang panagalan, may na-create din akong thread tungkol naman kay Enrique Razon na ginamit din yung pangalan niya ng Bitcoin Revolution dun palanga sa walang pa-alam na pag-gamit ng pangalan nila alam mo ng scam ito. But yung problema ko dito why SEC and BSP until now is just issuing warnings about this website kasi hindi enough/sapat na action ito kung alam nilang illegally operating yung website and lalong lalo na na identified as scam ito. And alam ko may kapangyarihan silang mang-block ng domain or website katulad ng ginawa nila sa several porn sites dapat din ganito yung aksyon nila bukod sa mag-bigay ng pa-alala sa mga tao, mas effective kasi ito and alam mo ng di pa dadagdag yung mabibiktima nila sa Pilipinas.
11  Local / Pamilihan / Re: Paano magtop-up sa Gcash, Paymaya at Credicards gamit ang WhaleSpend? on: April 02, 2020, 09:22:16 PM
Just to clarify lang hah @OP sa mismong WhaleSpend ba na website walang verification process? And yung mga tanging cash transaction limits lang ay depende kung verified or hindi yung GCASH at PAYMAYA mo? Kasi yun yung part na nakakalito and sa website niyo ang tinuturo lang na verification process if for both GCASH and PayMaya pero wala kayong KYC process mismo kaya yun yung nakakapagtaka. And isa pa is pag-sinabi mo bang "credit card" top-up you just mean credit card lang talaga or pwede din kayo mag process ng bank deposits directly? Sana masagot itong mga tanong ko kasi gaya ng ibang members dito naghahanap din ako ng workaround para sa limits na meron yung account ko.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: April 02, 2020, 07:43:44 PM
however Juventus have set a good example all the players have accepted the 30% salary reduction until they return to play, it seems that the league has decided (to be confirmed) that all the remaining matches will be played and the championship will end at half July...

What's your source here? Because the last time I check the Prime Minister of Italy has even banned them from practicing until the mid-week of April other than that I haven't seen any news regarding the resumption of the league games. Even if there is a rumor about the continuation of the league I'll doubt that it will happen especially if their own country that they play in is still not yet stable due to the pandemic. I wouldn't really hope anything yet not until their country is stable as well as all of the affected players are able to play for their team.
13  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2020-04-02] Rich Dad Poor Dad Author Calls Bitcoin Peopleís Money on: April 02, 2020, 05:50:35 PM
He has been saying this for years now I remembered this topic resurfacing from 2018 and 2019 which makes me wonder why he keeps on saying this over and over again and this time via tweet with a lesson coming from his book. I don't know maybe it's just part of his marketing ploy on staying relevant in the market again to keep his book sales up but there is really no evidence that he is holding Bitcoin himself. So really this is the only possibility why he keeps bringing up Bitcoin just to promote his book from the process.
14  Local / Pilipinas / Re: IRAN BABAWASAN ANG PAGGAMIT NG SARILI NILANG BANK NOTES? on: April 02, 2020, 04:18:55 PM
Hindi porket iiwasan nila yung pag gamit ng sariling nilang fiat currency ay automatic Bitcoin or cryptocurrency na kaagad ang ating iniisip. So naghanap ako ng update about Iran and to my surprise hanggang ngayon wala pa din silang lockdown na nangyayari as of today and iniisip nila yung economi and political disadvantage pag ginawa ito, yung news nila about sa banknotes naman ay yun nga hindi crypto ang naging solution nila kung hindi debit cards to promot "contactless payments" which I think isn't really that a big improvement kumpara sa pagbabayad ng paper money kasi may nangyayari pa ding contact at pasahan. IMO their government needs to step up a bit lalo na nasa top 6 sila in total number of deaths.

Iran is suffering the worst outbreak of the virus in the Middle East. Using cash there is common, but in recent weeks many people have avoided it and banks have announced that they will not accept cash from customers. Iranians often have multiple debit cards but cash is widely used in small-scale transactions, like buying bread in bakeries or leaving a tip. Many people have started even being careful in how they hand over debit cards, as contactless payment methods havenít caught on there.

Wala naman sanang suicidal saatin dito dahil sa pagbagsak ng bitcoin price, pero heads up lang. Dahil mukhang maraming nalungkot sa pagbagsak ng price based sa mga nabasa ko sa mga recent threads.

Di natin makaka-siguro ito, financial lost is one reason that can lead to a person having depression and lahat naman tayo alam na ang depression ay isa sa main reason bat nag-papakamatay ang tao. May nabasa akong article dati about WHO pointing out that the number of suicide in the Philippines especially sa male filipinos ay lumalaki, suicide attempts might be a bigger rate daw kaya dito palang alam na natin na madaming causes na pwedeng magpa-kamatay ang tao and ito ngang pagkawala ng pera ay possibleng dahilan. Para naman sa mga nakaranas ng losses dito tandaan nyo bago pa lumalim yung kalungkutan niyo mas mabilis ng i-aksyon ito sa pakikipag-usap sa pamilya mo para matulungan ka nila.

According to rumors, Juventus may refuse the title if he will win without playing the rest of the games while Lazio wants to play at all the costs the rest of the season for winning the title.

Find the difference.

(another rumor Giraudo will probably do an appel for the sentence of Calciopoli)

I don't think that a team has the power to deny a championship or else they could be facing certain sanctions here which they wouldn't like. If they are the default winners Serie A has been known to be not tolerant to clubs who violate certain rules and decisions and from what I know teams like Juventus and AC Milan got punish by being automatically relegated to Serie B for some seasons so if they do deny the title I was thinking that they'll have this sort of punishment. However there is no final decision here and Juventus is just talking about "what ifs" as of the moment and I know the Serie A board will be consulting with other teams regarding on how they will finish this season.
17  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: South korean allow Crypto |Singapore allows 6 months license free on: April 01, 2020, 10:39:16 PM
I donít know what the relationship is between the two topics, but the legislative laws in many countries are still unclear due to the absence of an agreed regulatory framework or standard between all countries. Therefore, many platforms operate according to the financial regulation laws currently until they are banned from providing services or that they are prepared New legislative laws.
Consequently, the two topics talk about enacting more legislation that may not be compatible with the platforms, or they may be strict enough to make the platform move to another location.

The OP might just posted articles in relation to positive legal news for crypto moving forward in both countries. While I do have to agree with you that some laws by countries have been proven to be unfavorable to crypto businesses there is no denying that some countries have big markets for the industry which still allows them to operate smoothly in that country. Countries like the USA and China for example have been in this tag-o-war with crypto regulations yet we still see crypto husinesses and ICOs prosper in this countries. As long as the regulation allows them to have some movement I lnow that thos businesses and projects will find a way to operate.

Ang nakakatawa dito may opisyal na announcement pa sila dito with matching "wipe paper" and para sa hindi nakaka-alam whitepaper dapat ito. Yung blogpost/whitepaper nga nila nag-cocontain din ng mga nakakatawang salita eh katulad ng "KYC" daw nila is "Know-Your-Colon". Ewan ko ba pero yung mga pinapatamaan nila siguro is yung mga Western countries na nagkaka-shortage ng toilet paper ngayon compared sa Asian countries.
19  Local / Pamilihan / Re: Pianaka unang bitcoin casino sa pinas! on: April 01, 2020, 08:19:36 PM

Tama, kita mo naman ang pag bakbak natin sa kanila, LMAO, pero parang wala lang sa kawbet ni walang sagot na galing sa kanila. The good thing is that sama sama tayong nag kwestyon sa legitimacy nila. Ginamit lang talaga ang pangalan ng kaya misleading sa mga nakakarami. Di ko naman sinasabing na mabuting na-ban sila dito, pero mahirap pagkatiwalaan ang mga ganyang klaseng online games.

Kahit sino naman pwede gamitin ang pangalan ng dahil BTC wallet provider ito, and bukod dun ito ay ang pinaka sikat na BTC wallet sa Pilipinas and malamang ginamit din nila ito dahil alam nila madaming user sa Pilipinas pero wala akong ginawang bearing galing dun and nag focus ako sa shady website nila and yung claim nila na "First Philippine Bitcoin Casino" sila. Yung ginawa ko yung assessment ko sa website nila dun ko binase yung mga sinabi nila kasi napaka-impossible  yung claim nila dahil di na namimigay ng license ang PAGCOR and mas prinopromote nila yung offshore licensed gambling casinos if online. Swerte nalang natin na wala silang maipakitang pekeng license kasi madali lang mabisto ito.
20  Local / Pamilihan / Re: Pianaka unang bitcoin casino sa pinas! on: March 31, 2020, 08:56:23 PM
On my fair assessment of the website I would say that KawBet isn't legally operating in the Philippines. Sa una palang na sinabi nila na sila ang unang Bitcoin Casino sa Pilipinas ay magtataka ka na kasi hindi naman na nag-iissue ang PAGCOR natin ng licenses either than PhilWebs' which is the only known locally licensed E-gambling site the Pilipinas. Kaya pili lang ang tanong na sinasagot ng OP and parang iniiwasan din nya yung mga tanong about legality dahil alam nila wala silang license dito. As for international license for KawBet wala din itong pinapakita sa website nila. Tama kayong mag-hinala sa website na ito na prinipromote nila na Philippine-based e-casino kasi as of now isa palang ang meron tayo, I would advice anyone to stay away from this website.
