No other forum has our legendary member Mr Satoshi except bitcointalk! So that itself makes this place original and other forums just like a sub branch no matter their page views or activity. But yeah, there should be more healthy competition Wink

Keep in mind in cryto currencies, the first one is the the Bitcoin and the rest are all the altcoins.

thats what you want everyone to believe.

thats what the bitcoin whales want everyone to believe.

It does not seems to slow down much. New members per day will decrease naturally but the main thing is that posts per day is stable. And how much cryptotalk is spending to keep their forum alive. Below is the rough estimate

Pay per Post = 1000 Sat

Daily Posts: 6387 * 1000 = 0.06387000 BTC  approx 510$ paying daily

Total Posts: 84384 * 1000= 0.84384000 BTC  approx 6,724$  has been spend so far in approx 15 days
It's only the money they spend for encouraging users to post in their forum. They are paying much more money to bitcointalk signature campaign participants .
Once they stop paying people for posting in their forum, the number of daily posts will significantly decrease.
Anyway, cryptotalk is a new website and they normally need advertisement. Their advertisement on bitcointalk can be effective as it makes many people know them. We don't know what will happen in future. They may be able to attract good users. But I don't know how they treat spammers in their forum. If they pay spammers, they harm their forum.

I do not take it this way and also they are not mad to waste their money to fund the spammers. Their goal is to make the forum popular and make it in a position where they can get the signature campaigns which will automatically keep the spammers posters busy.

Yeah they are many shitcoins in yobit and they can get good bounties advertisement too. When i last visited there were no ranks but now they have introduced ranks there too. They are eyeing something big which we may not realize now.

The statistic I'm interested in is how many times we've had this topic over the years.  It feels like it comes up fairly often, but maybe I'm just showing my age.  Apparently this place has always been dying, even though it clearly isn't.

We'll have to start a 'bitcointalk obituaries' to go along with the regular 'bitcoin obituaries'.   Roll Eyes

I would rather have 3.1 million constant users of the forum rather than 27 million more people who just got interested of Bitcoin because of its hype. Because lets face it those 27 million viewers of Bitcointalk are just here because of the bull run in 2017 and most of them here posted topics about how they will earn and how they will be rich with Bitcoin and then after that when the crash begin they are mostly likely the ones who became nocoiners at the end since they have bought Bitcoin with no proper plan. That number is just noise and practically not here because they are interested with Bitcoin but rather more interested in earning from it.

I think BTCT will be the better forum in the short-term, middle-term and for the long haul .....

There will always be competitors, just like BTC always have some sh*tcoins to deal with....

Bitcointalk.org only gets nowadays 3.1 million viewers thats actually nothing compared with it once had per month (over 30 milion)

during the 2017 bubble? Roll Eyes

you can see the same sort of decline in google trends data for "bitcoin":



it's reflective of the overall post-bubble decline in interest in bitcoin. be patient---it took a long time for the market to get hyped again after the 2015 bottom. there's no reason the 2018 bottom would be any different.

Traffic will always be up and down and will correlate with the price falling/spiking and excitement (or lack thereof) in the media, but I don't see why losing traffic would be an issue either. I'd rather there be less people here especially if those that left only care about bitcoin when there's something in it for them or they can earn via posting. I doubt theymos really cares either as he's seemingly not that interested in monetising the forum and that's all that traffic really matters for most. As long as there's enough money coming in to cover outgoings then it shouldn't be an issue, but with the amount of funds the forum has in reserves then that's probably not much of a concern either.

Ultimately this forum has what the other forums will never have. It has almost 10 years of history entwined through the forum. It is not something that you can replicate or replace. This is where it happened, when it happened.


We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.
