Do you need a Vietnamese translation? I am a Vietnamese, and I can do it excellently. I always want to participate in your translation.

Warning for Translators:


a single post dead thread is totally useless for the Project and won't work at all. we expect from the ANN translators to take the responsibility of moderation of their threads by keeping the thread active with translating official announcements, news and updates regularly. but if a translator just translate a thread and left that dead. In that case I'd simply disqualify that translation or reduce the reward 50% than actual payment. and we have Additional reward for moderation. so don't think that is a free work..

I have a question about the signature campaign, if I'm a new member, how can I finish 50 posts in your campaign when it's only a week away? If I do not have 50 posts, will I get paid?

thats what the manager said ( 4 posts earlier):

Quote
no any reward for less than 50 posts. even if that would be 49.. I'd suggest everyone to be careful about that. forum moderators are always active and sometime they remove threads or posts, and some time posts can be rejected by manager as well due to quality.. so better do 5 , 10 extra posts. posts.

So in 1 Week....i guess you have to "spam"

Does this mean that I have to become a spammer to receive the reward? This is not fair, a spammer is what people in this forum hate, things are bad.
3  Economy / Speculation / Re: Segwit fork and the bitcoin price on: June 11, 2017, 09:13:24 AM
With segwit activation on august 1st, I think a split is almost certainly going to happen.

I remember the first time I heard about a possible hard fork a few years ago, it freaked me out and I dumped all my coins.

I imagine there are a lot of people who have recently invested who are now at the same level of education I was at back then and they will be dumping out their coins.

So the price will probably drop quite a lot over the next 8 weeks, but the question is when and how much? I'm deciding between holding my coins, or selling them now and waiting for the dump then buying back even more.

It is difficult to talk about what is going to happen, however, it seems the situation is getting worse, the value of bitcoin can drop dramatically, I am worried about it.

It's not a secret Satoshi Nakamoto has more than 1 million of Bitcoins in his wallet, right?

If he suddenly wants to sell all his Bitcoins, could it cause a chaos in Bitcoin market making the price fall? Or is this amount too insignificant to cause any mess?

Even if he wants to sell all his bitcoins he have to go to exchange for selling and when this much high transaction will happen the exchange will stop that acct withdraw and all problems will start so i think he wont do this mistake and sell slowly slowly so that the coins will also get sold and it wont affect the market.

Yes, you can own a large amount of bitcoin, but it is very dangerous, he can sell a little to use gradually, but it would be stupid if he sells all, he is sure. He will be in danger.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Does Bitcoin really need an ATM? on: June 11, 2017, 09:07:35 AM
I've seen in many posts that you are interested in something like a Bitcoin ATM, and there has even been someone who has built a Bitcoin ATM somewhere in the USA.

I believe that reprogramming an existing vending machine (specially condoms or parking meters for their size), or even taking an old motherboard or android phone, and attach a coin acceptor and a thermal printer is not exactly something revolutionary (technically speaking). But it hasn't been done yet (well, it has, but a big and mostly proof-of-concept project, diametrically different from the low cost, widely deployed EUR/USD/GBP2BTC machine everyone want).

So, my question is why. And thinking about the question I found that Bitcoin is not what people need. It will, when it  succeedes (I'm optimistic about Bitcoin) be an extraordinary medium of storing wealth, something like gold today, with the additional advantages that everybody in this forum knows. But I don't think that people need to change their salary to Bitcoin (price fluctuations aside), exactly, again, as they don't need to buy gold with their salary. It's just not worth it. Bitcoin is not useful for buying bread. You can argue, of course, that if the baker accepted Bitcoin, people could use them to buy bread. But why would the baker accept Bitcoin, if he must pay his taxes in euros? It just adds more headache to his accountant.

Another reason I think that people will not rush into the ATM to buy BTC is the responsibility. Who would want to be considered the only responsible of protecting its own wealth? If you are stolen/threatened/forgetful that's it, game over. With a bank, despite all the inconveniences, hidden fees etc, if your credit card is stolen, you can chargeback. And the Bitcoin community does not support the idea of trusting a Bitcoin bank (which, given the past experience, I understand).

So, when I enthusiastically tell my friends about the wonders about Bitcoin, they ask me, skeptically, "how can I use them?" And in the answer I realize that they don't really need them, as well as they don't need gold coins.
People don't mind paying 2 euros more in an item of 60 euros because of the fees of Paypal, if they know that they can recover their money if something goes bad. Bitcoin has primitive escrow services, but are they below the Paypal fees? If yes, for how long, when the Bitcoin economy expands?

In conclusion, when I was looking for a catch phrase to write in the ATM describing why everybody needs Bitcoin, I realized that Bitcoins are useful for wealthy individuals and from a macroeconomic point of view, but not for the people that would casually buy them in an ATM.
 
I hope with this post to get contrary opinions about this fact, since I want to be convinced that a Bitcoin ATM would be useful, since I find the project of building one really, really cool :-)

I think that any currency needs ATM, but for bitcoin, it's really not feasible, the bitcoin's transaction speed is still very slow in order to carry out transactions in life.

We really can't blame people who are still have negative thoughts about Bitcoin, I think the reason why they are afraid is because there are lots of scams happening in the internet. We just have to wait til every government announce the legality of Bitcoin so that people will gain trust to use this coin.

Very accurate, in the bitcoin world, all the information is hidden, this has made the fraudsters take advantage of others to make money, ugly.

How many bitcoinds do you think there will be at the end of the year?

If you talk about my income, I think I can earn 2 bitcoin this year, although it's not much, but I think it is enough for me.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Really The Future Of Money? on: June 11, 2017, 08:52:00 AM
I think it is just for online use purposes, because bitcoin don't have a stable value, maybe when the time comes that bitcoin has already have stable value then I think there is a possibility that bitcoin become also a Money.

A contradiction in your words. Although bitcoin is only useful when it comes to the existence of the internet, it is showing its importance and development potential, it has the potential to become the world's currency.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is the bitcoin function for you? on: June 11, 2017, 08:48:05 AM

If I bitcoin it functions for trading capital and buy daily needs {after I exchange into fiat money}, the rest I save for my future investment and family, for your own what is the function bitcoin?

For me, bitcoin is like a part-time job, I can make money from it, although that's not much, but it can improve my life. Since I know and use bitcoin, everythings get better.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin or Altcoin? on: June 11, 2017, 08:45:52 AM
While Bitcoin there are a few scaling options, it appears that a number of Bitcoin investors have been switching to Altcoins, and may not switch back to Bitcoins any time soon .
What will happen if investors continuously switch to altcoins? Will bitcoin crash ?

This is quite normal, the expansion of bitcoin can cause some bad variations, so they choose altcoins to avoid undue hassle.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: whats the future of crypto? on: June 11, 2017, 08:43:50 AM
Over the past year we've seen a dramatic amount of growth in cryptocurrency. Considering that the value and the healthy cash flow of cryptocurrency that just tells you that the value of cryptocurrency will keep growing and the future will see lots of cryptocurrency adoption.

I think the cryptocurrency is going on a red carpet path, everything is fine, and I believe it will be even better in the future, bitcoin is the most concrete evidence of its amazing development.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What do you like best about bitcoin? on: June 11, 2017, 08:40:22 AM
I like bitcoin!
Bitcoin will change the world's monetary system!

I think the value of bitcoin is something that we all like, with great value, we can easily make a profit from it.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How to explain bitcoin to teenagers or children on: June 11, 2017, 08:37:31 AM
The new generations are practically born with the ability to scroll and swipe on devices, I think they are more likely to catch on to the concept of blockchain technology and the greatness of Bitcoin than us.  They might teach us a thing or two.   
Bitcoin is still a virtual currency, it is not really in contact with everyone, so even though people are exposed so much to information technology, they still can not know bitcoin. They only know it when it is actually accepted by the government.
14  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Bitcoin credit card? on: June 11, 2017, 08:32:50 AM
There are some bitcoin creditcard beeing issued now i think, i have read some articles about it saying that bitcoincredit card will be available now and on future.xapo have it already the virtual card
I've never tried it, but I want to make it, because I think it will be very useful for spending and shopping. See bitcoin has not been accepted. So you can use a bitcoin credit card to shop


Yes, I want to try it too.  It would be a blast if it happens.  Maybe because some people do not know yet what is bitcoin.  So maybe out of their curiosity, maybe bitcoin will be a hit.  It will be recognized and then its price will keep rising.  I want to have a credit card right now.  But maybe a few stores would acknowledge it.

Bitcoin credit cards still can not appear, because bitcoins are not really popular worldwide, bitcoin development is still very low, it's common in some countries, not enough.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: That moment when you buy 1BTC at $2500 on: June 09, 2017, 02:28:45 AM
In every business risk involves same as here. Patience and attention is the only key to success in this platform. Hold it and wait for the price to rise, it is expected that the bitcoin price will kept on increasing till the end of this year. So better to wait instead of selling it at low price with loss.

Sure, bitcoin is still a very potent and powerful money, its value will continue to increase, do not worry when you buy it at a high price, and soon after it has fallen, it's just a Adjusted, it will continue to increase in the future.

I want to know where you can get bitcoin or altcoin every day
Ayao share, so others can know too?

I do not earn it every day, but I earn it every week and every month, it's like work in your life, you work a long time, and you wait for rewards for working time. That's yours. And my job is to sign autograph campaigns. And of course, to do that, I have a lot of knowledge about bitcoin.

I tried to check this wallet

https://blockchain.info/address/1BepxXDfAYMhRKP69xuUxvzwy2HsAh6TuK


Private key - L4FJC5Lun8bHebAJGPPQpqit7iUxQFCMj6DEpHzXS44Mc3apuvmW

Try with anything but a web wallet... I don't even know if core would manage handling those. Maybe for standalone wallets electrum is the best because of it's sweep option. Still the fees to get coins out are big..

Isn't Electrum an SPV wallet? I'm not sure it would work...
My Electrum server's sessions shot up to 350, and then immediately dropped to 80. This is just hilarious tbh.

Any chance of porting this to Javascript?
20  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Electrum - Lightweight Bitcoin Client on: July 30, 2015, 04:04:35 AM
I just realized that the Master Public Keys of the three wallets I just created with Electrum 2.3.2 all start with "xpub661MyMwAqRbc...".
"xpub" certainly is a marker for identifying the String as a Master Public Key. However, do the other coinciding letters have to be always the same or do they result from a lack of entropy in the generation process?
Check the private keys to be sure.
