Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies,[13]products, and services. Research produced by the University of Cambridge estimates that in 2017, there were 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin.[14]

On 18 August 2008, the domain name "bitcoin.org" was registered.[25] In November that year, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titledBitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System[4] was posted to a cryptography mailing list. Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as open source codeand released it in January 2009 onSourceForge.[26][27][12] The identity of Nakamoto remains unknown.[11]

In January 2009, the bitcoin network came into existence after Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first ever block on the chain, known as the genesis block.[28][29] Embedded in the coinbase

You have copied all this from steamit, but you didn't mention the source, those type of actions here are considered plagiarism and are the final result is ban.

Let me FTFY.
Here is your source: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@techything/what-is-bitcoin

Don't make this mistake again, as the other members are already tired of such attitude, and if they spot this you gonna be banned. You should have read the rules before start posting.

Edited : On the other hand you already spammed 3 posts while I was writing this, so I guess I'll just report you myself.
ok sorry I can not post again

There are such indeed ... check out the following thread by mdayonliner : 5 lists for merit earners: Initial merit drop to the next recognized rank

You can also see it on the Merit Dashboard.  

- Go to the Tab called “Ranked-Up”. There are 38 Full Members (initial Merit of 100) that are now Sr. Members (250 Merits or above).
- There are also 9 Sr. Members (initial Merit of 250)  that are now Hero Members (500 Merits or above).
- Click on the number from the top table to update the detail on the bottom table with the User Ids and Names that have ranked-up. Click on any username to access the link that takes you to the user profile on Bitcointalk.

Edit: I've just seen that coinlocket$ also answered in the post above mine, so you can see we try to help around when the question is not some sort of spam or easy to answer by looking around a bit.

Enlightening thread....
How do I get Merit to rank up?
Well, you managed to get a contradiction going there, nearly an oximoron. You cannot seriously consider the thread enlightening and not having understood what this is all about. With that lack of effort on your behalf, ranking-up is going to be an ideal that will simply not crystallize.

Often, when you study for an exam or prepare a meeting, you need to reread it all a couple of times to get the hang of it first and eventually master it. Consider this something of the kind: if after reading this thread you cannot answer your own question, reread the thread until you eventually do:

WHILE merit is not understood AND still wanting to contribute to this community
BEGIN
    Read posts on thread (or extend over to other threads on the topic if necessary)
    Refrain from creating posts asking trivial or sufficiently answered questions
END

There are three posible exit combination to the above algorithm. Hopefully you will do it meeting them in positive...

My problem with the current merit system is simple: I was a Hero member, my account was hacked and I had to start all over again since I could not get any help with recovering my account.
'Start over again', what does it mean?
Can you explain a bit more about your case?
After the hack, your account's postcounts dropped and you had to collect activities again, or you actually lost the Hero-ranked account forever and had to start from zero with a Newbie account/
Which one is your case?

It means I never got the Hero account back, had to start completely form scratch as a newbie.. No help, had to open a new account and start over. This actually happened twice accounts RJF and RJF19 both hacked and these accounts had good passwords and no leaks from my computer, odd. I reported it both times, no joy.

Please read the first post. Reading a post like these after 200++ pages makes me kind of mad because there are so many people who has hand that is faster than their brain, they can not even think before asking with a post.

In addition to activity, everyone now has a merit score, and you need both a certain activity level and a certain merit score in order to reach higher member ranks. The required scores are:

I am especially eager to have merit sources in sub-communities such as the local sections.

Kinda agree with you mate. people are asking too much when they do not deserve even a single merit from their posts, it is like they are just want everything to be easy for themself. Kinda hate this kind of guys and the worst is they do not even know that they are not worthy enough.

This whole line of discussion seems a bit strange because there surely are a lot of merit worthy posts in the forum.. I personally think that it is just a matter of reading through posts. 

For example, if you are eager to give away a certain quantity of smerits (let's say 50 smerits), then you could have a target to give away 5 merits per day for 10 days or you could have a target to give away 2 merits per day for 25 days or you could spread those goals over a week or a month or whatever time period is comfortable for you. 

Giving away smerits does not seem to be a difficult problem to solve or a bad problem to have, but if you want to attempt some kind of reasonableness or fair distribution (without becoming anal in regards to making the perfect the enemy of the good), then it does take a bit of work to sort the better posts from the less quality posts (all under nearly whatever standard (in your own discretion) you create for yourself).

Of course, we have to deal with ESG, KYC & AML, but each of them are attack vectors on Bitcoin to be avoided or minimized.

I think it would be great it people looked for high quality posts to give merit to and not just ask people to give it to.

I would look around if I had the merit to give... I am struggling to get it to be trustworthy on my ANN. I will see what happens in the future and hope to get some merit so I can give away sMerit only to the people who deserve it.

Merit system has a purpose of quality posts being posted in the BITCOIN FORUM. But as you go through a topic in the BITCOIN FORUM you will realize that there are only few fixed members who are posting the required way , whereas , others are still posting as if they are only required to have a post daily or so. These members are generally of higher ranks and already merited. However , on the other side it is completely reversed . Even if the BITCOIN FORUM members , who are ranked newbie or junior member, are posting quality posts as per the guidelines, then also they are not getting any merit which is affecting their rank a lot. This has become a headache for some and is not really appreciated because despite the the work required accordingly, they are not being rewarded.

I don't think there is a strict required way(I mean there is no exact recipe) unless your posts are quality, creative and valuble to the forum members.

Quote
whereas , others are still posting as if they are only required to have a post daily or so.
There is no requirement for posting daily unless you're a member of a bounty gangs who asked to bump their ANN threads as per requirement for getting few shitcoinin which created out of thin air.

Oh no you're also a serious bounty Hunter when looking at your post history. It's full of bounty reports only. How about this  if we change what you're saying " Bounty hunters are still posting as if they are only required to have a post daily in ANN threads"

Quote
then also they are not getting any merit which is affecting their rank a lot. This has become a headache for some

Why so worried about merits. I think headaches are only for juniors and new members who willing to participate signature campaigns and earn money but couldn't due to Merit barrier.

Quote
and is not really appreciated because despite the the work required accordingly, they are not being rewarded.

We can't expect every quality post are getting rewarded since it's not a AI process that measures the value of a post. If someone noticed that your post are good and add value to the forum they will surely merited you.

Wrong!
Merit system launched to aim at motivating forum users concentrate on their thread's quality, helpfulness as componental factors to contribute increasing the quality of forum threads, and reducing or eliminating (if possible) shitshows.
In other words, high-qualitied threads are main purposes of merit system.
Merit system has a purpose of quality posts being posted in the BITCOIN FORUM.

Honestly, it is really hard to completely understand what you wrote.
However, I got some of your ideas, and these ones have been repeatedly written, complained by hundreds of forum members.
It doesn't make sense.
So, please stop doing this again. Such a complaining thread like yours is very annoying, and headache.
You - and other members - will not earn any merit by doing this. Hence, why not stop doing this repeatedly!

I think I wrote quite good material and I had so me merit posted to me from people that really liked my posts.
But some post I thought were more well written and documented got no merit and were dumped down on the threads where no one will never look for them.
Sometime is also pure luck. The right post at the right time.

My two cents,

You've been merited on 5 posts out of 32 (they also look like your best posts, but not all have the same degree of content). That is 15%, which is a pretty good percentage really even for some of the top posters on the forum. One cannot be expected to get merited for every post he creates really.
