To buy into this rapidly expanding market, potentially to trade but, most probably, with the intention of holding an amount of a particular currency long term is not easy.

But what good is it in case a hack or computer bug causes you to lose it all ?

Be smart and do the right thing.

How to protect your cryptocurrency ?
We have some this far and decided to buy into this rapidly expanding market, potentially to trade but, most probably, with the intention of holding an amount of a particular currency long term.

But what good is it in case a hack or computer bug causes you to lose it all ?

Digital currencies such as Ethereum have the potential to revolutionise the future of all industries. We have seen already that Ethereum can changes sectors such as healthcare, finance and the government. Trust in traditional markets also continues to decrease in some parts of the world and they are turning to cryptocurrency as a result.

The future

Digital currencies such as Ethereum have the potential to revolutionise the future of all industries. We have seen already that Ethereum can changes sectors such as healthcare, finance and the government. Trust in traditional markets also continues to decrease in some parts of the world and they are turning to cryptocurrency as a result.

Let’s look at the healthcare example. Ethereum’s blockchain allows patients’ documents to be safely shared with other GPs and hospitals. Using this technology will make processing patients information much more efficient.

The room for growth in XRP’s price is tremendous when you consider past highs attained by the digital asset. With more partnerships on the way, the coin looks good enough to achieve mass adoption in the near term.

However, the price of XRP is now looking to gain more positive momentum from Bitcoin price. Moreover, the most recent altcoin season was initiated by the price of XRP.

There are more plagiarized posts but I guess the provided examples should be enough.

This is another word-for-word plagiarized ANN:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5144815.msg51118548#msg51118548

Took their project description from this Medium article:

https://medium.com/@LivesToken/livestoken-lvt-s-pre-ico-introduction-symbiosism-economy-and-its-realization-34519614c02d

Here's some examples for you, with the ANN text first and the Medium text second:

1.
Today, under the increasingly fierce market competition, the market needs a new model that can benefit both business and user in order to solve the problem of product homogeneity, low customer loyalty, and high cost of user acquisition to eventually achieve the purpose of sustainable development.

2.
The key point of the B-Blocks Economy is to quantify the behavior of users in the process of using the Internet, so that users' behavior can finally generate economic value and gaining benefits for themselves. Thus, it can enhance the user loyalty and ultimately achieve the goal of mutual benefits, common and sustainable development of both businesses and users.

3.
B-Blocks(BBK) system is based on the blockchain technology, and the core is to generate an encrypted database for each node. The database consists of three parts: user general data (OpenID), user behavior data (users data generated on the network), and an encrypted book, which is used to record the contribution value, reputation value and transaction information of each terminal.

Guns are made for one purpose, and that purpose is to kill.
I believe that guns are not weapons, they are tools. How they are used is up to the person holding it.
Guns are especially dangerous in the hands of people who don't know how to use them (i.e., kids and teenagers) as well as those who are mentally ill and/or have a temper problem.
Gun control will not stop violence because a violent person doesn’t need a gun to be violent.

After the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, support for gun control increased dramatically.

Generally in America, the support for gun control has outweighed the support for gun rights.

Are gun control laws constitutional?
What would be your ideal set of laws regarding firearms?

Yellow Highlight: http://prism.scholarslab.org/prisms/435bd4a6-01ef-11e9-a1b6-005056b3784e/visualize?locale=en
Orange Highlight: http://www.topics-mag.com/readers/gun-forum.htm
Blue Highlight: https://www.inquisitr.com/1675095/more-americans-support-gun-rights-gun-control-first-time-poll/

The orange is obvious plagiarism, however sentences like "Guns are made for one purpose, and that purpose is to kill." are generic and with 1,000s of results on google. I hope the bot is not smoking people for that otherwise it will eventually backfire.

I don't think he'll be banned for the part highlighted in yellow, but it's obviously a plagiarism salad.  He put some (a little) effort into hiding hiding his plagiarism by adding "in Newtown, Connecticut," to one of his stolen lines.  And, it's not this user's only offence:

At the very least, a religion that does not preach that it alone has exclusive truth; any religion that does not have a concept of hell; and any religion that does not have a god that acts like a human.
I'm cool with Unitarian Universalism, some forms of Taoism and Buddhism, and Quaker Christianity. Jainism is ok but I could never adapt to their diet, but at least they've gone 2500 years without any religious conflict.

Original: https://www.nairaland.com/2459388/atheost-what-best-religion#35995884




My vote is that marriage isn't the most important issue. Bringing children in to the world is.
If people aren't planning on having kids, then it seems wise to be realistic, and plan for potential problems ahead of time. Perhaps requiring a prenup is offensive, but then resisting one is too. The couple should navigate this in any way that works for them.
Kids are a different matter. If the parties are not willing to split all assets 50/50, then they aren't in a position to have kids. To me, a prenup defines a state where the couple is committed enough to give it a try, but not committed enough to have kids.

Original: http://sciencechatforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=15269



What's interesting is that it doesn't look like Aggressor66 has been banned.  According to bpip.org he's inactive.

I had made a handful of reports in recent days, and one of them turned out bad, maybe this is it?

Hi Nitrogensports, I see that you're now laying odds on futures at Formula 1.  Will we be also seeing lines available per race?  Please let it be so, you're now the only sports betting site I use in my favorite sports to bet on.  Adding F1 to your roster will definitely be great as that would make you a one stop shop for me.

Plagiarize  

Understanding how blockchain works and identifying myths about its powers are the first steps to developing blockchain technologies.
Blockchain is an algorithm and distributed data structure for managing electronic cash without a central administrator among people who know nothing about one another. Originally designed for the crypto-currency Bitcoin, the blockchain architecture was driven by a radical rejection of at (government-guaranteed) money and bank-controlled payments.
Blockchain is a special instance of Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs), almost all of which have emerged in Bitcoin's wake.
HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN WORK?
Blockchain is a Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) that was invented to support the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. Bitcoin was motivated by an extreme rejection of government-guaranteed money and bank-controlled payments. The developer of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned people spending money without friction, intermediaries, regulation or the need to know or trust other parties.
Technically, the original blockchain is separable from Bitcoin, but this report will show that the blockchain design is so specific to Bitcoin that it's not a good fit for much else.
The central problem in electronic cash is Double Spend. Because pure electronic money is just data, nothing stops a currency holder from trying to spend it twice. Blockchain solves the Double Spend problem without a digital reserve fund or similar form of umpire.
Blockchain monitors and verifies Bitcoin transactions by calling upon a decentralized network of volunteer-run nodes to, in effect, vote on the order in which transactions occur. The network's algorithm ensures that each transaction is unique.

Someone has admitted to plagiarizing.

Me thinks lauda has plagiarized in the past.
Wrong. I think I plagiarized[1]. I never paid any attention to it, then again which spammer did? I believe that it is quite likely that I messed up at least several times even after I stopped spamming given my post count. I'm waiting along with many other DT members to see who is going to get banned. The only difference being that I've served not one, but two punishments for all my posts up until year XYZW (I don't remember). Quite funny this one is. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why still "unhandled"?

Dr. Craig has now been issued a fully vetted certificate of copyright by US Government Copyright office.
This can not be contested unless you have standing so this is now firm.
Dr. Craig has not applied today, he did that months back.

They actually not ban but limits the trading of bitcoin. China is planning to limit electricity to Bitcoin miners, and government bodies have expressed concern about energy usage. Bitcoin mining is estimated to use up to 4 gigawatts of electricity, equivalent to three nuclear reactors' production levels. However, this move isn’t just about the electricity. In fact, it is telling that it was China's central bank that met on the issue of Bitcoin mining, underscoring the fact that the issue is not only, or even primarily, an energy issue. It’s about clamping down on perceived risks of the cryptocurrency, which regulators have associated with malicious acts like fraud and money laundering.

Banks hate cryptocurrency because they charge fees for doing anything with money, even just holding the money, Because the banks have created a level of trust that transactions pass smoothly and everything is recorded and accounted for correctly, and financial crisis proved in 2008, banks now are not above abusing trust to line their own pockets. And it led to the development of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in 2009.

Banks generally charge fees for doing anything with money, even just holding on to it. That's because the banks have created a level of trust that transactions pass smoothly and everything is recorded and accounted for correctly. But as the financial crisis of 2008 proved, banks are not above abusing trust to line their own pockets. That's what led to the development of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin in 2009.

it is very important that you take chances of winning and profit into consideration  once you decide to try your luck.
the other major factor that should be taken care of in the process of choosing the ideal casino in which you will play is the limit of the house .
for example when the currency is tossed into the air you know in advance that the chances of winning or losing are completely fixed at 1:2 or 50%-50%.
the same rules have been applied to gambling games .
in the online casino on the assumption that the roulette wheel has a 37_38 slot and that the standard playing standard for the card games package is 52 cards and that the dice has 6 faces .

Once you have decided to take your chance on online casino gambling it is very important to consider the odds of winning, which might differ from one website to another. So, another major factor in the process of selecting the perfect casino is the house edge for your favorite game.
For example when flipping a coin you know in advance that there are exactly two possible outcomes and the ratio is thus 1:2 or 50%-50%. The same rule has been applied to different online casino games departing from the assumption that the roulette wheel has 37/38 slots, a standard playing deck has 52 cards and a dice has 6 sides.

Some manual text spinning: romero121 (archive)

Bitcoin and USD carry varied factors, and it is impossible to find which makes bitcoin better than USD or vice versa as individuals have difference of opinion on the same thing.

Decentralization
It is one of the best feature that we cannot see with anything else. There are people who who consider it an added advantage of bitcoin and get into it. Same time there are users who stand away indicating decentralization as a major issue.
Limited Supply
Both USD and bitcoin has got limited supply, USD will be authorized or backed by government/central banking authority. With currencies it is manipulative the currency value by the government, while bitcoin is completely different and gets functional based on the underlying algorithm.
Pseudonymity
Bitcoin gives the anonymity to some extend, while the same isn't possible with the USD transactions where it is a must to fulfill KYC when you make an transaction. Anonymity has got negative impact in terms of fund transfer to terrorism and other needs.

These were some of the big factors that make a big difference between USD and bitcoin, probably more minor factors were there which will also let bitcoin and USD better to each other.

Points are copied from https://www.coindesk.com/information/what-is-bitcoin and reworded by him. Not sure if it counts but I figured I'd report it just in case. Maybe someone who's better at finding plagiarism than I am could find some actual plagiarism by him, but it seems that all of his 6.7k posts are just generic self written megathread spam.

WHAT IS MASTERNODES?
Masternode is simply a cryptocurrency full node or computer wallet that keeps the full copy of the blockchain in real-time, just like your have Bitcoin full nodes and is always up & running.But masternodes are considerably different in their functionality than normal nodes. They are different because they perform several other functions apart from just keeping the full blockchain and relaying blocks/transactions as a full node does in Bitcoin/Litcoin. Some of the special functions that these nodes perform are: Increasing privacy of transactions. Doing instant transactions. Participating in governance and voting. Enable budgeting and treasury system in cryptos.
These masternodes are not standalone but they are always communicating with other such nodes to make a decentralized network and are often referred in short form as MN.

To put it simply, a security is an economic instrument representing an actual asset. Stocks, bonds and managed property trusts are examples of securities. Traditionally, when a security is purchased, the operation is done the old fashion way, on paper. A security token performs equally in functionality; the difference is that it confirms ownership through Blockchain transactions, meaning that the records of the owners are encrypted and the information is spread though thousands of computers across the globe that can be traced and the information is stored in blocks that stay for good. Security tokens offer a number of financial rights to investors such as equity, profit dividends, income shares, vote casting and access to many other investment mechanisms.

1. Write a business plan.

Experts agree writing a business plan is the first real step any entrepreneur or prospective business owner should take. Not only does this show a true level of commitment, it also forces real and tangible answers to important, and sometimes challenging, questions. A business plan is also the first thing any potential investor is going to request. This gives them a full understanding of the business venture being proposed, the owner's level of expertise and understanding of the opportunity, and the financial requirements and potential upside.

2. Choose a legal structure.

How a company is incorporated is important, and not always an easy thing to change after the fact. While not overly complex to understand, each type of legal entity comes with certain requirements and restrictions. Certain types of corporations may not be available or appropriate for your type of business. If you need help, a corporate attorney or experienced business accountant can offer timely and accurate advice on the exact legal structure of your proposed company.

3. Get your business registration, licenses, and tax identification.

There are various resources to assist with various things like business names, filing incorporation paperwork, obtaining necessary licenses and registrations with your local municipality, and getting your federal tax information squared away. Aside from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for federal tax matters, local corporation commissions (typically at the county level) can assist any new business owner in meeting the regulatory requirements for each locale around the country.

4. Know your competition and marketplace.

There's nothing wrong with a little competition. In fact, it's what gives business owners the opportunity to come out with a better product or service. Knowing your marketplace, what your competition is doing, and how you're going to compete and win customers is a critically important step in the business setup process. Including this information is your business plan, will show your mastery of the type of business you're proposing to start. Without this information, no serious investor will rise to the occasion. Know your marketplace, know your competition, and know how your company is going to be different

5. Finance your business.

Unless you're an accountant, have a degree in finances, or are a sophisticated investor, chances are you'll need some help nailing down this part of your pre-business planning. Investors are going to want to know how much money your company has to start and how much it's going to need in the future. No matter where your revenue will come from, list it. Will you use your credit cards and home equity to start? Will you have sales the day you open your door and will you need a loan you can service as debt? Are you willing to give up a percentage of your ownership in exchange for cash?

No matter how you propose to finance and fund your business, share that information in your business plan. There are a myriad of investors out there and they've seen it all. Don't assume no one will invest just because you aren't also bringing some capital to the table. Investors typically want to know three things:

    How much?
    For how long?
    What is the exit strategy?

Answer these three things to an investor's satisfaction and you're very likely to strike a deal.

6. Identify and secure a location.

Whether it's your home office or an entire building in an industrial park, the logistics of your proposed business location must be firmed up before starting your business. This includes managing things like choosing phone and internet service providers, business directory listings,  utilities, and of course the lease or purchase agreement totally in place the day you go into business. It is actually acceptable to have the type of building you'll need identified in the early stages of creating your new business. Investors, bankers, and legal counsel generally don't see the lack of a specific location, early on, as a deal breaker or red flag.

7. Get proper insurance.

Types of insurance to consider include healthcare, vehicle, directors and officers, liability, performance bonds, travel (to include AD&D), and life. It's important you understand any local regulations that might require your specific type of business to carry certain types of insurance. If you're a carpenter or a plumber, as an example, you'll need liability insurance, which you might not need in other industries.

8. Obtain legal counsel.

Whether you are proposing to have in-house counsel or will hire appropriate counsel when needed, it's important for your business to have access to a lawyer. You may need a lawyer who specializes in corporate, tax, intellectual property, labor, trial, or international law.

Wherever regulatory requirements demand compliance, using a lawyer to review and sign-off on this part of your business will save you time, money, and potentially your company and intellectual property in the long run. Don't skimp on legal counsel.

9. Use local and national business resources.

Local, county, and national resources exist to ensure your company is compliant, that you've chosen the correct legal structure, the name you've selected is available, and how to secure loans and other types of money that is available to entrepreneurs. Your local corporation commission, the Small Business Administration, and the IRS are all useful resources at every planning stage.

10. Review everything.

Last but not least, go through it all one more time. Not only is this an excellent way to fully familiarize yourself with your proposed new company, it's a great way to identify in omissions or areas that need to be modified. A second set of eyes is always preferable.

Investing heavily in the planning phase of your new business will pay real dividends when the time comes to meet with investors, securing a location, and opening your doors for business. Dig in deep, make a great impression with your level of preparation, and start your business off on the right foot.
