1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Cryptocurrency to be accepted in shops by 2025? on: March 23, 2018, 05:43:31 AM
These statistics are really good. Although late, people are starting to educate themselves these days about very important technologies like Bitcoin.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Will ripple recover? on: February 01, 2018, 01:19:55 PM
I think a small group of people is controlling the price, and that's not so difficult for them, since this coin has a totally centralized supply. That said, the price can recover at any time, but don't think you can easily predict.
They can pump it whenever they want, the same way they can dump hundreds of billions of coins in the market.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: If ETH price exceed the BTC's on: January 10, 2018, 12:13:12 PM
I am so curious that if Eth price overcome Btc's, what will happen in crypto world?
Bitcoin would remain the most decentralized cryptocurrency, and unlike ethereum, it really scales. So nothing would change for Bitcoin.

However, the crypto world could take a hit, because a lot of people might lose money when investors see that ETH doesn't scale.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best altcoins to buy for 2018 on: December 06, 2017, 09:41:39 AM
I think Bitcoin will do great in 2018, but if I had to pick up an altcoin, I would consider something with real innovation, and that is not pumped yet. In that sense, I think Byteball can prove to be a great investment in the future.
I has very good distribution model, DAG implementation and a developer that is constantly improving it. It's definitely a rare gem among so many coins with no substance.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: Which country will be the first to legalize Bitcoin? on: November 16, 2017, 06:02:28 PM
You need to inform yourself. Bitcoin is already legal in most countries... what happens is that many countries do not consider it to be a currency yet, but an asset.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: To mine Ethereum or Monero? on: October 31, 2017, 09:34:44 PM
I've heard that Monero has too many botnets. It doesn't make it impractical to mine for the average user?
7  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin price ath on: October 13, 2017, 12:39:56 AM
It's been a great year for Bitcoin, and it's not being the first time we face a fork, so the FUD is not as strong as before.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: October 13, 2017, 12:01:41 AM
I was speaking about byteball at a meetup tonight and i was told that it is inspired by iota. I can see iota is referenced in the whitepaper. So i am assuming the statement was correct. What makes it different. Im sorry if this has been asked before. perhaps you can point me in the right direction to learn more.
The concept was around before both these projects: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1177633.0

If i'm not missing something, the difference is basically in the witnesses and distribution mechanism.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Why isn't crypto going mainstream? on: September 29, 2017, 05:02:29 PM
Because understanding Bitcoin is not an easy task for most people. They need to educate themselves about a lot of things, such as information technology and the basics of economics.

But you should look at the bright side of it... at least you're having the opportunity to buy at these cheap prices. It's called first move advantage. Wink
10  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin falling again on: September 13, 2017, 06:42:10 PM
OMG, Bitcoin falling again, current price = 3866USD.
What happen? we losing money every hours. Need exchange BTC to fiat?
Who can explain this situation?

Nothing that Bitcoin can't handle. I think this is the time when people who think Bitcoin is in a bubble are selling. But I have good reason to call it panic selling. If you look at the Bitcoin chart in the logarithmic scale, it does not look like Bitcoin is in a bubble. I think we'll see a correction soon...
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I have 10 different altcoins on: August 25, 2017, 04:28:04 AM
For most alts the ideal would be to keep each one of them in their respective full clients.
There are also hardware wallets supporting a few altcoins. Legder and Trezor are examples.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: IOTA - the scheme is being pumped hard now don't fall for the trap on: August 25, 2017, 04:14:13 AM
...

cheap copy of IOTA

...
They are not the same.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Bitcoin Cash Sudden Rally > $500 on: August 18, 2017, 01:12:32 AM
I'm also surprised, but it's probably just another wave of P&D. Such a sudden increase is not the result of organic growth.
I recommend people to be careful with it. Nobody is using this coin for any reason other than speculation, so it's not sustainable.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Which alt coin will gain most value in 2017? on: August 18, 2017, 01:00:43 AM
After carefully studying at least 25 different altcoins including Ethereum, Bitsend and NEO, I voted for Byteball. Because it offers an unique idea, and the white paper looks very interesting.

really byteball still?

 please be careful when you tell your opinion. make a research and explain after.
What's wrong about it?
The tech seems to be quite unique. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.0)

It uses DAG, but it's quite different from Iota.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin really secure? on: August 18, 2017, 12:55:31 AM
It's not perfect, as others have already said, but if you study the types of failures that can occur in the Bitcoin ecosystem, you'll notice that these are problems with very low probabilities of happening, and most of them requiring astronomically high computational power to happen.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Bitcoin cash pump on: August 18, 2017, 12:34:29 AM
The chart shows an almost vertical movement. I think it's just another pump.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: what alt coins worth the invest? on: August 18, 2017, 12:31:24 AM
I think it's very risky to invest in altcoins when Bitcoin is in a bull run.
If you find a better investment, and really have confiction that this will also go up, try investing small amounts. Bitcoin is still the best, IMO.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What do you think will be the number1 coin? Bitcoin or Etherium? on: August 18, 2017, 12:26:06 AM
I have no doubt it is Bitcoin. Ethereum is already having serious scaling issues, without mass adoption... if this crypto becomes popular they may have serious scaling problems.
19  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin reduces unemployment on: August 10, 2017, 04:48:35 PM
I think it generates new opportunities for freelancers and even normal jobs, since there are websites like Bitwage.com, which allow people to work in exchange for Bitcoin. Here in the forum there are also opportunities, of course.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What's happening to the coin market? Can it be lower? on: July 11, 2017, 11:21:14 AM
I would say this trend can go on until the end of the week. But everything will depend on how Bitcoin will react in the market.. at this point it seems that everything is interconnected.
