1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Would it be enough to buy 100 dollars worth of Bitcoin every month? on: December 10, 2023, 05:34:14 AM
Do not ever compare yourself to others when it comes to investment or even anything regarding progress, only compare yourself to your previous self, if you have improved or not is the only thing that you should worry about, 100 a month in investment is already a big amount of money so I do not think that it is a good idea to think too much if you are investing enough. The point is that you are already investing which about 100x much better than what others have done with their investment journey which is all talk and no actions to back up their talk or promise.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WHY PEOPLE ARE NOT TAKING THEIR PRIVACY SERIOUSLY. on: December 10, 2023, 02:51:24 AM
To answer your rant/title, is probably because and I do believe so that privacy is such a tiring chore and that taking the serious measures and having a presence of mind when it comes to your security takes up a lot of time for so many people and we are living in a fast paced world that wants us to do more in a 24 hour timeframe so maintaining and keeping an eye on something that can just work without your supervision is a waste of time for some people. Or a lot of us have surrendered our right to privacy and our private lives that we don't care anymore, this is probably the easiest answer to that rant.

I feel like Ocean Mining has the right to choose who they are going to work with if they deem fit or something like that because if we are not free to do that then what is the point of having these freedom that we have, I just don't like the idea that some people are attacking them or something like that. And to answer the question about the bank transactions, I definitely would show it to them if they have the warrant to check it out.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Are you feeling FOMO like I am? on: December 09, 2023, 08:36:55 AM
Not me, but my spouse does, for sure. Every time Bitcoin goes up at least $1k, she asks me if she made a mistake by not buying more earlier, and then she goes ahead to buy a small amount and sells it for a small percentage of profit and then regrets when the price goes even higher, lol. That happens with everyone, trading cryptocurrencies is a roller coaster and one will always have mixed emotions unless they have planned and decided everything beforehand.

People who have or had liquid assets when the market was still low, like around $26k, and didn't buy Bitcoin or anything and they have seen the market coming this far will surely feel FOMO throughout the run that we have seen, and it's natural because you see yourself losing out on great profits when you also had money to invest.
Fun story, I can attest that it definitely happens to the best of us, you selling for a small profit and then the price starts surging again which is a doozy for you but I have learned to not care too much about what happens after whenever I sell a small portion of my bitcoin hoard to buy some stuff that I want to buy. The best thing to do when you feel that feeling of missing out or that you should have sold a bit later to enjoy a bigger profit is just think of selling that bitcoin and making a profit out of it as free money that you did not work too hard to get and that you're just enjoying that free money and it should be a mindset for us that free money should be guilt free.

Just go for bitcoin, do not even try to entertain other people that is trying to entice you with potentially big profits because they are either a naive altcoin promoter or they are a part of the scheme to buy that token so they can generate profit out of the gullible people that are believing that they can make money by investing in that coin. Bitcoin should be your first investment in cryptocurrency market because it is a guaranteed profit for you given that you have a nerves of steel and that you are not easily swayed by the negative news or events that is happening to the bitcoin market. No one should get into crypto and experience loss the first time they invest, that is what I think should be the thing that matters for veterans giving advice to people that are trying to get into crypto market.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Count down to Bitcoin halving. on: December 09, 2023, 05:16:03 AM
If you look at previous history, halving and its influence on Bitcoin price spikes are indeed true. However, this also cannot be the next benchmark. Why do I say that, because the current supply of bitcoin is already and is almost approaching 21 million, maybe there are only 2.5 million left for all the bitcoin supply to be on the market. Of course, the influence of the halving is no longer very significant on price increases. And only mass adoption and use in the real world can influence prices because the more bitcoins are bought or used, the more demand there will be.

I'm sure this time Bitcoin's halving will still be able to print ATH.
If the influence of halving and its effect isn't that significant anymore, how exactly can you tell that it's not influential anymore when we're still talking about it and at the same time a lot of crypto personality and crypto websites are anticipating it by having a calendar? I don't agree that it's going to be insignificant unlike last time, I do believe that it's going to be the same influence as last time. That halving is going to make mining much more difficult and with much difficulty in mining, there's bound to be an increase in demand and with a low supply and slow replenish in the supply since mining rewards got halved and with lower supply and ever increasing demand, the price will only go up from there and that happened because the halving so I wouldn't exactly say that halving has lost its significance when it comes to what's happening in the bitcoin market and the events surrounding the market.

It is not accurate and I do not think that a lot of AI available for public use are updated in terms of information so I do not think that they will be able to help you in anyway in your betting strategies, maybe you can get some sort of insight to help you but it is probably not that reliable even if say we were to talk about player analysis, this one is more difficult because you are not sure of the condition of the player at that time and you might only get just a general analysis on the players at best but that is not going to help you.
9  Economy / Gambling / Re: No KYC Crypto Casinos & Sites | | Exclusive Bonuses on: December 01, 2023, 09:16:51 AM
Are these listed crypto casinos and websites a safe one though? Because a lot of scam casinos are not also offering KYC but at the end, they hold the funds of the people that are playing in their casinos and claim that they did not comply with KYC or that they found the withdrawal suspicious so I have to ask that one, I hope you don't mind OP.
10  Economy / Gambling / Re: Slot Educational on: December 01, 2023, 08:27:11 AM
Lol! Good initiative by the people, but I feel that such parades do very little to help out of control gamblers fight their addictions. What truly matters the most is inner willpower in these cases.

The ones that posess strong willpower can overcome their gambling addiction while the ones with weak willpower will probably never overcome this issue.
Rehabilitation works both ways, if other people don't offer to help these people even if they are willing to get help then their recovery and rehabilitation either won't speed up or won't be effective causing them to relapse. Of course it should be that recovery should be more on the person's willingness to recover but we should be helping these people even if we think that they don't deserve it or that they are going to go back to their addiction, everyone in the society should help each other in any way that we can, the people are the foundation of a society right?
11  Economy / Gambling / Re: Casinos not asking for KYC to register and play, but do require it to withdraw on: December 01, 2023, 06:56:55 AM

On the other side of that coin, the casino would argue that the user had agreed to the terms of service upon signing up, and within that terms of services were the clauses that stated the information about KYC.

It would be interesting to see a case due to the conflict of your opinion and mine here. I think that with the financial and legal powers that casinos have, they would prevail. Or, they would be forced to give the balance back due to the unawareness, but only after putting the claimant under the pressure of a long battle.
I would agree with you but the casino needs to be covering their bases because if the users that would take them to court, they would probably argue that they were not reminded or that the casino probably added the KYC clause on the Terms and Condition agreement after they have registered which is not a likely thing for them to do. There is probably a case similar to this already in existence because this kind of case happening could happen in other scenarios although it is probably different in a way that this is gambling because this could be argued like a breach in contract.
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling are mainly for rich and lucky mind. on: November 30, 2023, 11:56:13 AM
I donít think this is the right mindset for a gambler because to me everyone is lucky but maybe the days arenít just the same and irrespective of your occupation, either gambling or not, what truly matters is that we have a tactics we are following and as a gambler, having our own strategy and also knowing when to stop is key and I also understand that gambling in most cases is luck base but I donít agree that gambling is only for the rich and also I want to point out that gambling is risky and betting on odds isnít even a safe way to stay profitable because on several occasions weíve seen small odds losing games to bigger odds.
If everyone is lucky, no gambling or betting sites and businesses would last long because everyone just keeps getting the wins because everyone is "lucky", as much as we want to give people the slack, we just have to accept the fact that luck is not something that we should take for granted because by definition it is implied that not everyone can get that luck but I do side with you that what OP is saying a not the right mindset but not because of what you say. Gambling is all about risk and fun but sometimes in some cases, it is also about strategy.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do you feel when you look at your first Bitcoin wallet? on: November 30, 2023, 09:35:39 AM
I have no regrets with what I have spent my bitcoin with, the stuff and experience that I have acquired thanks to bitcoin is such an appreciation for me so I do not have any regrets about my spendings, the people that I have met and the experience I have shared with them is something I will be grateful. Money can always be earned and I can always buy bitcoin so I have no worries. In fact I am happy because all the bitcoins I have sold, I can still remember where I have spent it. I guess I am living more to what Satoshi envisioned on how to use bitcoin more than anyone but that is just me.

You have to understand that not all bad or criminally minded people knows about bitcoin since they have only worked stealing or sticking up people that have fiat in them so I do not think that you are going to be in any danger wearing that, you are not flaunting your wealth in any way just because you are wearing a bitcoin themed tshirt and if you are really that worried about your well-being then your problem is you are probably living in an area that has a really high crime rate so maybe it is not your outfit that is attracting this type of stuff so go on and where what you want, you are spreading the gospel of bitcoin and you are comfortable with what you are wearing.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What happen if Bitcoin shutdown? on: November 30, 2023, 05:26:20 AM
I do not exactly know how you will be able to do that but I do not think that it is an easy thing to do because you are going to be targeting a lot of infrastructures that are although organized, is totally decentralized that they are not even connected to some way I think that is how the infrastructure of bitcoin is made. Also, if there was a way for bitcoin to be shutdown, it should have been done a long time ago by a lot of hackers already but so far, bitcoin is standing strong and no kinds of attacks has ever been done that compromised the whole network. But say if you are right that there is a person that was able to do just that, I think that the price would probably do a deep dive and people are probably going to be selling as quickly as possible given that the once impregnable bitcoin becomes compromised, a lot of people will be scared hell they might not be even be able to panic sell at all since a shutdown means that even the network stops functioning.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Streamer wins seem too good on: November 29, 2023, 11:57:45 AM
Streaming is one of the ways casinos promote their businesses just like any other business and yea! Most of these streamers are actually being paid by these casinos. They play very 'magical' games and go home with very huge wins , thereby convincing the gullible public into playing these games with the hope to win too of which luck doesn't always shine on the public just like it shines on the streamers' sides.
That is why I find these streamers especially the big ones to be deplorable and at worse downright money hungry because they promote gambling in their big platform where there are a lot of people that might be influenced and there is probably children watching their streams. Although some of the streamers I have seen already learned to do disclaimers about what they are doing but even still, I still find it weird that they do it, probably because the money offered is just too damn expensive for them to pass up. Regarding their wins, they are probably playing at a different version of the casino where only the streamers are allowed so they can do unbelievable wins that a normal player might not be able to do.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Is gambling all about luck? on: November 29, 2023, 09:47:25 AM
as the title suggests, gambling is not always about luck, sometimes you also need emotional control, strategy and good analysis in gambling in order to achieve maximum results. because even though luck is the key to successful gambling, there are still several other factors that are needed by gamblers so that they can become successful gamblers and not be careless. even though it is quite complex to explain this, i am sure that gambling is not always about luck.
Exactly, luck is something that no one can control and so we should not rely on it even if we believe in it, improving and relying on the stuff that you can control like the ones that you have mentioned is what anyone should be focusing if they want to be competent and get a lot of fun out of their gambling journey and experience. I do think that gambling is about luck but it is also about going against it and trying your own luck.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling is not a steady income haven on: November 29, 2023, 09:09:33 AM
I agree with you because we can't not fully depend on gambling for life lead. Gambling is not the platform which gives you the stable earning opportunity. Gambling helps you to earn a gambler earn huge amount of money but when he faces loss it's also huge amount. Life of gambler isn't easy. Especially the economical side. If you are fully depend on gambling it's your foolishness. Earn from gamble and start something own that will more benificiant.
You cannot really disagree with it because it's a common sense that gambling is not a good way to establish a steady income stream because it is gambling, there is no way that the house is going to let you win money or let you make profit if you plan to make profit in their casino and in sportsbetting you cannot really be sure that everyday is a good day because you are hoping that the team you are picking is going to win or that your analysis of the upcoming match is on point, there is just too many stuff that you need to consider when you are gambling and I do not think that anyone can do it daily, maybe there are stories out there that are successful at doing this but that do not mean what they achieve, you can also achieve.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Who says you can't be a millionaire in sports betting? on: November 29, 2023, 08:20:29 AM

So what do you think we will do here? I mean, we have this gambling discussion section to talk about gambling, why not talk about success sometimes rather than talking about how to prevent losses and how to avoid being addicted in gambling?

This gambling section is here to encourage people from gambling, not to discourage them... and the fact that you are wearing a signature for a gambling site, that alone is already a way showing people your support on the gambling site you are working with.
I did not say that we should not talk about this topic, I just said that it is not a good idea to talk about it in a way that it encourages others to pursue gambling in the hopes that they might be able to make some money or get lucky. I do not necessarily agree with you about the encouraging part on why this discussion exist since I believe this discussion exists as a means to share information and such, encouraging means that you are promoting gambling and the forum clearly says that they do not endorse any kind of businesses here but to each of their own, if you think that this discussion exist to encourage gamblers then that is on you.
