Here's another one.

Topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2998575.0

In Vietnam, the Bank lists conventional payment mechanisms like cheques, payment orders and credit cards as permitted, but then adds (after translation) that “Bitcoin virtual currency and other similar is not lawful means of payment in Vietnam. The issuance, supply, use of bitcoin and other similar virtual currency as a means of payment is prohibited in Vietnam.” Fines of around US$9,000 apply to those who accept or offer payments in virtual currencies.

The State Bank of Vietman has issued “Information related to the use of virtual currency” that bans use of the cryptocurrency for payments.

It won't say why, and doesn't explicitly ban mining or blockchain.

# Freedom of Payment - Allows you to send and receive money instantly anywhere and anytime. No bank holiday. No country borders. No restrictions apply. Bitcoin gives its users full control over their money.
# Very low cost - Bitcoin payments are currently processed at no cost or at a very low cost. Users can enter fees in transactions to obtain priority processing, thus securing faster transaction confirmation by the network. in addition, the seller processor is there to assist the seller in processing transactions, converting bitcoins into conventional fiat currency, and putting money directly into the seller's bank account each day. because all these services are based on Bitcoin, then the required cost is much lower than the credit card network or PayPal.
# Low risk for sellers - Bitcoin transactions are very secure, irrevocable, and do not contain any personal or sensitive information from customers. this protects the seller from loss due to fraud or chargeback cheating, as well as unnecessary PCI adjustments. Sellers can easily expand into new markets where credit cards are not available and fraud rates are very high. the end result of Bitcoin is lower cost, wider market, and fewer administrative expenditures,
.# Security and control - Bitcoin users have full control over their transactions; it is not possible for sellers to create unwanted or unnecessary bills as can happen with other payment methods. Bitcoin payments can be made without including a personal identifier for the payment process. This provides strong protection from identity thieves. Bitcoin users can also protect their money with backup and encryption.

Hey, I accidentally made another thread; ended up locking it because Vod pointed me in the right direction. Anyways here are my findings and a link to my original post if it matters.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3002211

I thought I would do my part and scroll through patrol to report the posts that should be reported and merit posts that might deserve merit. I stumbled across two spam posts that are identical.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1275725 - muhammadahmad822



It appears they are either the same person, that muhammadahmad822 is Copy + Pasting khalihanna's messages or that the project is paying people for this kind of bumping. This is just my first glance at this, but it appears abusive and I thought I'd point it out.

I wanted to post this in the right place so it doesn't go unnoticed.




EDIT:
Just stumbled upon another user doing the same thing.

https://archive.is/iMknu#selection-2017.0-2019.24

Good looking project.  Eye catching
Best of luck to the team

Both of the original accounts I mentioned had their post deleted, not sure if that was staff or the user.



Edit 2: Found two more users copying posts of one another as well.

An addition
Although the user put a twist on it to make his/her post different from the original but it's still determinable from where it comes from and can be considered as plagiarism.

Topic : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3002413.0

Per definition, Bitcoin is a decentralized digital cryptocurrency and a worldwide payment system. Its's concept is peer to peer and transactions take place between users directly without intermediary.These transactions are affirmed by network nodes through the use of cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. It is like investing in a stock exchange market where the profit would be very promising in a very limited time.

I hope this can help.

Virtual currency like Bitcoin has shifted into the public eye in recent years. Some employees are paid with Bitcoin, more than a few retailers accept Bitcoin as payment, and others hold the e-currency as a capital asset. Recently, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) clarified the tax treatment of Bitcoin and Bitcoin transactions.
Convertible virtual currency is subject to tax by the IRS
Purse filled with coins

Bitcoin is the most widely circulated digital currency or e-currency as of 2017. It's called a convertible virtual currency because it has an equivalent value in real currency. The sale or exchange of a convertible virtual currency—including its use to pay for goods or services—has tax implications. The IRS answered some common questions about the tax treatment of Bitcoin transactions in its recent Notice 2014-21. Tax treatment depends on how Bitcoins are held and used.

Bitcoin used to pay for goods and services taxed as income
If you are an employer paying with Bitcoin, you must report employee earnings to the IRS on W-2 forms.

You must convert the Bitcoin value to U.S. dollars as of the date each payment is made and keep careful records.
Wages paid in virtual currency are subject to withholding to the same extent as dollar wages.
Employees must report their total W-2 wages in dollars, even if earned as Bitcoin. Self-employed individuals with Bitcoin gains or losses from sales transactions also must convert the virtual currency to dollars as of the day received, and report the figures on their tax returns.

Bitcoins held as capital assets are taxed as property
If you hold Bitcoins as a capital asset, you must treat them as property for tax purposes. General tax principles applicable to property transactions apply.

If the Bitcoins are held as a capital asset, like stocks or bonds, any gain or loss from the sale or exchange of the asset is taxed as a capital gain or loss. Otherwise, the investor realizes ordinary gain or loss on an exchange.

Bitcoin miners must report receipt of the virtual currency as income
Some people "mine" Bitcoins by using computer resources to validate Bitcoin transactions and maintain the public Bitcoin transaction ledger.

According to the IRS, when a taxpayer successfully “mines” Bitcoins and has earnings from that activity whether in the form of Bitcoins or any other form, he or she must include it in his gross income after determining the fair market dollar value of the virtual currency as of the day he received it. If a bitcoin miner is self-employed, his or her gross earnings minus allowable tax deductions are also subject to the self-employment tax.

Atomic Swaps Allow You to Trade From Blockchain to Blockchain, From Within Your Wallet
An atomic swap is a direct trade between two different coins running on two separate blockchains; there are no centralized-exchange websites or other third-parties required for this trade. The technology enables common users to bypass the labyrinth of website-exchanges currently necessary to purchase cryptocurrencies. Once implemented, the atomic swap will allow common users to trade and purchase any desired coin directly within their own wallets.

I think thats not a good idea, plagiarism, act of copying others work. We should improve ourselves on our own way, its fine to be inspired to others but not in the point to copy them. We should learn to develop and improve our skills in cryptocurrency.

You seem to be too generous, Lauda. Plagiarism, in my opinion, should be dealt with a perma-ban hammer at the first offense.
There is just no excuse.

In this case however, it is not an isolated instance.


Ethereum has some inherent problems one being a single layered coin.  I personally like Cardano (ADA) as better replacement for ETH- Cardano utilizes a multi-layered infrastructure. The accounting layer is separate from the smart contract execution layer. This is a signifcant innovation since it allows for absolute flexibility in protocol utilization, app development and security systems.

Bitcoin is undoubtedly the best coin to "invest" in at the moment.  Not that others aren't ( I like IOTA, GameCredits, and ADA as well) but BTC is King.

https://www.investing.com/analysis/how-cardano-muscled-its-way-into-the-cryptocurrency-top-10-200291919

Andrey Solovyev, a software engineer with an academic background in applied mathematics who is also co-founder and head of product for mom.life, explains that Cardano utilizes a multi-layered infrastructure. The accounting layer is separate from the smart contract execution layer. This is a signifcant innovation, he says, since it allows for absolute flexibility in protocol utilization, app development and security systems.

Hello administrator, please consider banned this account -> Dimedroll. He stole my comment VERY exactly the same
Topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2996523.0

My comment:

This is my reasons,

1. It's hard to get a bitcointalk account
2. This forum is very strict on shitposting or spamming, that's the way to build this forum healthy and clean.
3. Not easy to raise your rank. You have to write great content, to get more ranks.
4. As far as I know, every token or coin start from this site, so if your signature been seen by someone, it will make an impact on their exposure.

Dimedroll. comment:

This is my opinion:

1. Hard to get a bitcointalk account with good rank
2. This forum is very strict on shitposting or spamming, that's the way to build this forum healthy and clean.
3. Not easy to raise your rank. You have to write great content, to get more ranks.
4. As far as I know, every token or coin start from this site, so if your signature been seen by someone, it will make an impact on their exposure.

He only changed for the first part of my comment. Please consider this man to permban

I really found this forum biased, When a newbies are tagged and permabanned, rules are different for Senior Member who is copy/pasting multiple times.

Yes, it does look unfair. The user is trying to edit his old posts and insert sources.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Seems surprising that none of the DT users / mods have acted upon this so far.

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:

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.


Copy:
1. Unstable

Bitcoin is a speculative currency. While there are not enough companies currently offering 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.

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

The digital wallet can also be hacked and stolen through malware. Not to mention the risk of hard disk content of bitcoin owners erased accidentally. More painful than cash, you lose all the contents of the wallet without being traceable to where it disappears. In addition, people with computerized expertise have the potential to steal the money.

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.

I mean, whole post is plagiarism.
WTF, there's a lot of users doing plagiarism even they know the rules of this bitcointalk. It was truly copy pasting because there's no different from the original post or they only change some words.
If that is happen do you think author need sanction too? Or only the users who copy pasting? That copy pasting is not only against the rules of bitcointalk because it also against the law of all countries "PIRACY".
Thanks for your info marlboroza

Hello administrator, please consider banned this account -> Dimedroll. He stole my comment VERY exactly the same
Topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2996523.0

My comment:

This is my reasons,

1. It's hard to get a bitcointalk account
2. This forum is very strict on shitposting or spamming, that's the way to build this forum healthy and clean.
3. Not easy to raise your rank. You have to write great content, to get more ranks.
4. As far as I know, every token or coin start from this site, so if your signature been seen by someone, it will make an impact on their exposure.

Dimedroll. comment:

This is my opinion:

1. Hard to get a bitcointalk account with good rank
2. This forum is very strict on shitposting or spamming, that's the way to build this forum healthy and clean.
3. Not easy to raise your rank. You have to write great content, to get more ranks.
4. As far as I know, every token or coin start from this site, so if your signature been seen by someone, it will make an impact on their exposure.

He only changed for the first part of my comment. Please consider this man to permban

Hello! I think that this message was partially copied, which is not prohibited by the rules of the forum. Why is this given a permanent ban? You can also make a warning or impose a temporary ban.

Especially when you consider the message completely, it was a direct response to the author of the topic, and your message was addressed to someone who is not clear. Why do you complain about a person, if you do not benefit from it. I'm sure that he copied part of your message just because you liked your idea and he wanted to convey it to the author of the topic.

I believe that the ban is too harsh punishment.

If only your friend quoted the post he copied then it won't come to this. But the fact that he copied and partially edited the context, he is making that context as his own. Thus, plagiarism. (punishable by law, not allowed in this forum). The punishment is Permanent Ban.

33. Posting plagiarized content is not allowed.[e]



Examples:

33. This includes both copying parts or the entirety of other users' posts or threads and copying content from external sources (e.g. other websites) and passing it as your own.
