I advice members to check if the posts are copied or not be searching on Google before giving merits.
Advice to every body or only merit sources? people will run out of smerits, merit sources need a sticky thread in meta where anybody in need of merits could post and request for a review of their posts. that should make it easier for merit sources.

I've seen at least one person already (unknowingly) give merit to a post that was copy and pasted from the internet, but checking every post before you give it merit is just going to be too time consuming and not worth the hassle. It's natural that copy and pasted posts will occasionally get merit but if they keep doing it the likelihood of them getting found out and perma banned just increases along with it so is it really worth the risk? All we can do is keep an eye out for it and copy and pasters usually get caught eventually but people trying to cheat the merit system in this or other ways are just something we're going to have to look out for.

Can “it “succeed without Bitcoin? Possible in theory (if the objectives are twisted accordingly) but very unlikely in practice.

Originally, the blockchain is a new type of database that can be used and maintained without a central administrator.

Unlike a traditional, relational database, the blockchain is administered through a consensus protocol. Therefore, whenever the word “blockchain” is used, we should ask which “blockchain” is in question, i.e what is the protocol ruling said blockchain.

The original Bitcoin blockchain that lives on the global Bitcoin network has proven to be an effective and reliable tool over a period of more than seven years with a 99.99% availabililty.

The properties of the original Bitcoin blockchain can be altered, often deteriorated, by any seemingly inocuous deviation from the original Bitcoin protocol.

For instance, Ethereum deteriorates the security of the blockchain by adding (unnecessary) complexity, Litecoin deteriorates decentralization by shortening the block intervals, proof-of-stake protocols turns the “public” blockchain into a semi-private blockchain by merging two roles (users and miners), etc..

Specifically, the addition of one or more designated “administrators” defeats the purpose of the invention and leads to unclear benefits compared to a traditonal relational database.

So far there is no compelling evidence, other than expensive trials by big banks, that a “permissioned” blockchain is more cost-effective, practical or secure in the context of a private network.

Crucially, the value of tokens on a private blokchain is not a market value but a conventional value aggred upon by the network participants: these tokens are in fact IOUs recognized only by the parties.

The absence of bitcoins as “bearer assets” removes the option to use Bitcoin transactions as a trustless settlement mechanism.

I believe they will start to put sources in such posts, which is something either for press section or shouldn't be allowed in first place unless it is important for discussion/topic and/or someone wants to point something and in that case it should be either under quote or at least italicized. On side note I think I have good idea how to improve merit system, just have to write all things down.

Generally it can be said that inflation is a measure of a general increase of the price level in an economy, as represented typically by an inclusive price index, such as the Consumer Price Index in a nation. The term indicates many individual prices rising together rather than one or two isolated prices, such as the price of gas in an otherwise calm price environment. The inflation rate is typically expressed as an annual growth rate in prices (again, as measured by an index) even if measured over a shorter period of time. For example, if a radi o report states that "consumer prices rose at an inflation rate of six percent last quarter," that would typically mean than the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (the most quoted index) rose over the last three months at an annualized rate of around four percent, and the press would generally refer to the current inflation rate as around four percent. The term deflation refers to a general decline  in prices or the price level as measured by an inclusive price index and, again, is not a reference to isolated price declines, like natural gas declining in price, in an otherwise stable price environment.

-snip quotes-

As a barometer of healthy money, the world’s best economies have average annual inflation rates below 1.5%.

In economic terms, low to zero inflation is a sign of healthy money because the value of the currency does not fluctuate significantly and is therefore reliable. However, in a country like Argentina, the annual inflation rate is estimated to be close to 40% today.

That means if you’re an Argentinian citizen and you save 100 Argentine Pesos, one year from now the value of those 100 pesos will be worth only 60 pesos relative to the world’s stable currencies. In Argentina, holding money means losing money, and so its citizens are actively looking for alternative stores of value to simply preserve the money they have earned and worked for.

Other examples of problematic economies with high inflation rates are Venezuela, which is expected to have annual inflation of 180% in 2015, and Zimbabwe, where the rate of inflation for the Zimbabwean Dollar was so high that this year they decided to stop printing it and the government is abandoning their currency altogether.

Zimbabwe went through a period of what is known as hyperinflation; their annual inflation rate in 2008 was recorded as high as 11,000,000%. What currencies could citizens from these countries use if not their own? The US dollar? Gold? M-Pesa? Bitcoin?

i think bitcoin is an asset, a digital asset. the statistical properties of bitcoin, find that it is essentially uncorrelated with traditional asset classes such as stocks, bonds and commodities, both in normal times and in periods of financial turmoil. The analysis of transaction data of bitcoin accounts shows that bitcoins are mainly used as a speculative investment and not as an alternative currency and medium of exchange.
Investors and early adopters like these assets because they are untethered from the regular economy where fiat currencies, more traditional forms of exchange and value transfer reign the day. one of bitcoins advantage is the high volatility, which counterintuitively results in more aggressive risk-reward trade-offs in investment portfolios.

The most important feature of a currency is that it be a stable store of value.
Blockchain technology gives Bitcoin two important characteristics - it can be exchanged without a trusted intermediary, and it allows anonymous transactions. Therefore no one can manage the bitcoin price it depends on the market supply and demand. The value of bitcoin is so easy to lose to be considered a real currency.
So people should stop expecting it to become a currency that ordinary people use for ordinary transactions. A currency, Bitcoin is not, nor shall it be.

Payment Freedom, Low cost, Instant Transactions, Full transparency and no central authorities

Bitcoin is a zero trust consensus network with many advantages.

Payment Freedom - Instant transactions
With Bitcoin it is possible to send and receive any amount of money instantly anywhere in the world at any time. No bank holidays. No borders. No imposed limits. Bitcoin allows its users to be in full control of their money.

Very low transaction fees
Bitcoin payments are currently processed with either no fees or extremely small fees. Users may include fees with transactions to receive priority processing, which results in faster confirmation of transactions by the network. Additionally, merchant processors exist to assist merchants in processing transactions, converting bitcoins to fiat currency and depositing funds directly into merchants' bank accounts daily. As these services are based on Bitcoin, they can be offered for much lower fees than with PayPal or credit card networks.

Coincheck, a popular Japanese cryptocurrency exchange, confirmed on Friday that it has fallen victim to one of the biggest cryptocurrency hacks in digital currency history, a crypto heist that tops the notorious 2014 Mt. Gox incident.

During a late-night press conference, Coincheck president Wakata Koichi and Chief Operating Officer Yusuke Otsuka estimated the exchange had lost at least $400 million worth of the NEM cryptocurrency’s XEM tokens.

As a result, Coincheck has halted all operations and the price of XEM has tumbled nearly 10 percent at the time of writing. NEM is the tenth largest cryptocurrency according to CoinMarketCap.

Lax security measures protecting this smaller cryptocurrency seem to be at the root of this issue. Yuji Nakamura, a Bloomberg tech reporter based in Tokyo, attended the Coincheck press conference and tweeted the exchange was not using multi-signature — an additional layer of security for cryptocurrency transaction — for XEM transfers.

Decentralized cryptocurrency is produced by the entire cryptocurrency system collectively, at a rate which is defined when the system is created and which is publicly known. In centralized banking and economic systems such as the Federal Reserve System, corporate boards or governments control the supply of currency by printing units of fiat money or demanding additions to digital banking ledgers. In case of decentralized cryptocurrency, companies or governments cannot produce new units, and have not so far provided backing for other firms

Found in the patrol section:

Conventional wisdom says that all the people who put money in expecting to get a second free coin (money for nothing) following the fork are pulling out realizing that no fork means no new coin which means no money for nothing. But it could also mean other things, such as people having less confidence in BC, perhaps from an awareness that BC is not so special. The price soared as awareness skyrocketed, but with that new worldwide attention came intense scrutiny and it may be that many realize it is not worth as much as its passionate advocates believe it to be, nor is any crypto-currency for that matter which is why Litecoin is tumbling simultaneously. BC is after all just a digital check and what is a check worth?

Bitcoin Advantages:
Freedom in Payment
With Bitcoin it is very possible to be able to send and get money anywhere in the world at any given time.
You don’t have to worry about crossing borders, rescheduling for bank holidays, or any other limitations one might think will occur when transferring money.
You are in control of your money with Bitcoin. There is no central authority figure in the Bitcoin network.

Due to unique characteristic of bitcoin, it inherent some advantages, digital currencies has:
- Convenient as mode of payment.
- Very Low transaction fees.
- Goverment has now way to interrupt user transaction.
- Purhcases are not Taxed.
- Information is transparent when using digital currency
- Fewer risk on merchants (bitcoin transaction cannot be reversed thus dont carry information, merchant are protected from potential losses.
- Bitcoin can be backed up and encrypted to ensure safety.

But for every advantages there's always a Disadvantage like:
- High risk and voltatile
- Still developing (we cant so rely so much on bitcoin)
- People need to learn bitcoin before engaging on how bitcoin earn.

Due to the unique nature of virtual currencies, there are some inherent advantages to transacting through Bitcoin that users of other currencies do not get.

I think everything in life has it advantages and disadvantages.Bitcoin has many advantages as many of us know but these are some of it disadvantages.
1. unregulated- Unlike other investment avenues, cryptocurrencies are not regulated by government entities or banks. For example, If we buy something with a credit card and get ripped off, we can call the bank and ask to be compensated. But if we get ripped off in a bitcoin transaction, it is impossible to get the money back.
2.may be open to illegal activity - Due to the lack of government control, terrorists and extortionists are also utilizing the cryptocurrency space to their advantage. Bitcoins users on either end of a transaction can remain relatively anonymous and cybercriminals have found ways to mask their addresses, so it can be difficult for government authorities and companies to trace such illegal activities
3.Bitcoin and altcoins are volatile -Investing in cryptocurrencies involves very high risk, as prices have been extremely volatile.

If we talk about bitcoin deficiency means we are talking about its weakness, I think this is the weakness of bitcoin:

1. Not Stable
Bitcoin is a speculative currency. Currently not enough companies that offer the purchase and sale of products with bitcoin as a means of payment.

2. Very risky lost or stolen
As a virtual currency, bitcoins are encapsulated in the form of digital files or known as wallet files. In use, the wallet file is similar to the cash register function.

But the wallet files stored on the hard disk of your electronic equipment are very vulnerable to damage. In addition, viruses that attack your hard disk can also make stored bitcoins just disappear.

3. Money laundering tool
The use of bitcoin currency is not controlled by the government or authorized financial institution. As a result, such conditions provide great opportunities for criminal activities such as money laundering and tax evasion.

so I guess if we do not really keep it thoroughly it will most likely happen.

About advantages
Transactional convenience: Any transaction has a limit on the transfer and receive money, but for bitcoin there is no limit. You can send unlimited number of bitcoins to your friends. No matter where they are in the world they will also receive. You can also send at any time no one can manage the amount you send.

Ensure security and confidentiality

Every bitcoin transaction can be done and completed without any personal information. Transaction information is still kept, but your identity is kept private. This is one of the outstanding advantages that you get when investing in the field of virtual money.

Bitcoin can not be faked

The cost of testing gold is very high, and bitcoin testing is not costly and the truth is that bitcoin can not be faked. Because bitcoin is not shown in physical form.

The cost is extremely low

There are no intermediaries involved in the field of virtual currency investing. However, you still have to deal with the transaction but it is not worth it.

On the downside
Not many users: The fact is that the field of virtual money is still quite new and not many people know. The people of Vietnam have been used to using gold and silver. People are very shy and anxious to invest in this field.

Somewhat unwieldy: In order to invest in bitcoin you need to have certain knowledge to get involved in this area. For those who are not technologically savvy, they can not participate in bitcoin. If not understood, the risk of fraud is very high.

Due to the unique nature of virtual currencies, there are some inherent advantages to transacting through Bitcoin that users of other currencies do not get.

I think everything in life has it advantages and disadvantages.Bitcoin has many advantages as many of us know but these are some of it disadvantages.
1. unregulated- Unlike other investment avenues, cryptocurrencies are not regulated by government entities or banks. For example, If we buy something with a credit card and get ripped off, we can call the bank and ask to be compensated. But if we get ripped off in a bitcoin transaction, it is impossible to get the money back.
2.may be open to illegal activity - Due to the lack of government control, terrorists and extortionists are also utilizing the cryptocurrency space to their advantage. Bitcoins users on either end of a transaction can remain relatively anonymous and cybercriminals have found ways to mask their addresses, so it can be difficult for government authorities and companies to trace such illegal activities
3.Bitcoin and altcoins are volatile -Investing in cryptocurrencies involves very high risk, as prices have been extremely volatile.

Japan was also the pioneer in terms of the adoption of Bitcoin, with which approximately six months ago there was a boom in companies trying to integrate Bitcoin payment systems. Even salaries are starting to be paid partly in Bitcoin. Bitcoin also comes at a good time for Japanese savvy investment, with which the ultra-low interest rates of deflation struggle against the central bank, which has left investors scratching their heads to find the profitability of their money. Currently, Japan can already be considered as the capital and headquarters of bitcoin, its approval must be approved, unlike governments such as China, which only banned ICOs within its region.

Overstock.com

 Buy home goods.Overstock.com was the first big online retailer to start accepting bitcoins in January of 2014. The company allows its customers to pay for everything from laptops and television sets to throw pillows and ottomans with bitcoins. In fact, Overstock.com allows customers to use all the major cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Monero, and the new Bitcoin Cash.

To use a cryptocurrency on Overstock.com, at checkout simply select your preferred currency to complete your purchase. The payment system will convert the currency into bitcoins and finalize the purchase. Editor's note: Overstock subsidiary tZero is part of a joint venture trading digital coins launched during initial coin offerings.

02
Expedia

 
Expedia is one of the world's largest online travel booking agencies, and since June of 2014 users have had the option to pay for their hotel bookings with bitcoins.

Like Overstock.com, Expedia teamed up with Coinbase to implement the new payment option. Bitcoin payment is only accepted for hotel bookings at the moment, but may be expanded to include payments for flights, activities and more.

i have created this thread not to patronize these stores or make an advertisement of their products, i thought this would help us to make bitcoin get stronger rather than post negative news about bitcoin capability to penetrate buying power shares of everyone.

here are some of the list of sites that i came across while browsing the internet, looking for online stores that accept payment thru bitcoin:

1. overstock.com was the first big online retailer to start accepting bitcoins in January of 2014. The company allows its customers to pay for everything from laptops and television sets to throw pillows and ottomans with bitcoins. In fact, Overstock.com allows customers to use all the major cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Monero, and the new Bitcoin Cash.

2. Expedia is one of the world's largest online travel booking agencies, and since June of 2014 users have had the option to pay for their hotel bookings with bitcoins.

--snip--

and dozens more. hope this helps.

Edited: behold, how bitcoin has gone a long way,  not sure if this is true but you can visit their sites and look for yourself.

WordPress.com — An online company that allows user to create free blogs
Overstock.com — A company that sells big ticket items at lower prices due to overstocking
Subway — Eat fresh
Microsoft — Users can buy content with Bitcoin on Xbox and Windows store
Reddit — You can buy premium features there with bitcoins

--snip--  

i did not post the link because i think that is a free advertisement for the site,lol you are free to browse though.

positive news such as this is needed to support bitcoin and gain more trust and more investors. what can you say about this info?

I already reported this to the moderator. But i would like to put this here to bring up this posts, to:
1. remind everyone that plagiarism is wrong and is a serious crime.
2. remind everyone that people read the internet, don't assume that no one will notice your posts.

If your new to the crypto space or want to take a more deeper dive into the world of ICOs and various other alt coins than this post may be for you. Here are four tools all the links I use on a regular basis to stay up-to-date and help me to make better trades.

1 - Cointelligence

It has several features:

a) General Overview of the Market

Here you can view several altcoins. To my knowledge, they have the largest database of all altcoins. You can sort the data by price, volume, algorithm, proof type, market cap and 24h change.

b) Coin Specific Data

You can view charts and market data on a specific cryptocurrency. Useful information includes latest trades from all exchanges, forums, orders on all exchanges, advanced charts and analysis.

c) Coin Analysis

You can also read the latest news regarding the market as well as analysis made by chart analyst experts. The Bitcoin analysis has been particularly impressive www.cointelligence.com/content/analysis/bitcoin


2 - Coinbase


Probably the most popular and easy-to-use exchange in the space that allows you to buy/sell Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. This is my normal go to exchange if I need to bring fiat money into the market.

3 - Coindera

Coindera makes it easy to monitor Bitcoin and over one hundred cryptocurrencies. You can get real-time alerts sent via email, SMS, and push notifications to your Android or IOS devices and the user interface is responsive and attractive.

4 - Blockfolio

If you do wish to monitor your portfolio I recommend using Blockfolio. It's a mobile app available on Android and iOS that does not require an account. There is a lot of privacy speculation about portfolio management apps in general but this application seems to be on the up and up.

Here are the tools I use to help me trade better. Comment below other tools I missed and those that you would like to recommend.

Topic: Altcoin vs Token
(Edit) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2921954.0

The main difference is the way they are structured. They have a few difference which i will mention below.

Altcoins are a digital currency similar to Bitcoin, and the term stands for alternative to Bitcoin. altcoins are created by diverging from Bitcoin consensus rules or by developing a new cryptocurrency from scratch. Most popular altcoins use the same fundamental building blocks as Bitcoin. This approach is relatively easy to carry out because Bitcoin is a free, open source platform. When an altcoin forks at the blockchain level, an alternate system of consensus rules must be used and the coin will have an entirely different distributed ledger. The same is true for altcoins built from scratch. Some altcoins have different monetary policy rules built into the currency to encourage different uses and treatment. Policies such as minimum spend, or positive or negative interest on coins stored, can encourage or discourage hoarding. Policies for coin mining may function differently from Bitcoin, as may the number of coins paid out per new block mined. While some altcoins can be attempts to enrich founders and offer little new, many have found niches because of way their differences encouraged new miners and uses. Since Bitcoin's inception there have been upwards of 500 altcoins created. Litecoin, Dogecoin, Blackcoin, Freicoin, Peercoin, Vericoin, Myriad, NXT are just a few examples of altcoins.

Tokens are a representation of a particular asset or utility, that usually resides on top of another blockchain. Tokens can represent basically any assets that are fungible and tradeable, from commodities to loyalty points to even other cryptocurrencies. Creating tokens is a much easier process as you do not have to modify the codes from a particular protocol or create a blockchain from scratch. All you have to do is follow a standard template on the blockchain - such as on the Ethereum or Waves platform - that allows you to create your own tokens. This functionality of creating your own tokens is made possible through the use of smart contracts; programmable computer codes that are self-executing and do not need any third-parties to operate. Tokens are created and distributed to the public through an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), which is a means of crowdfunding, through the release of a new cryptocurrency or token to fund project development.

It really is super cool! (See also: Guide to Cryptocurrency Wallets: Why Do You Need Wallets?)
