Bt was again rejected from the $30,500-$31,000 resistance area. BT is now back at the support of the $29,000 level. Still not much movement in the market. The market is hanging between support and resistance and we will see a break of this range by this weekend. Use tight SL in all trades.
I think minimum payment is the full amount because a BT is more like a cash advance, not a purchase. So you won’t get the benefit of pushing the puck down the ice like you think you can. Also remember to pay the minimum over the next 18 months which I think is like $10
Have you followed the release of TAAC proposal including buckets? It's there. Legimitate transactions goes through even when saturated, unlike spam that's rendered practically useless to do because of those two functions. It's really elegant and original, consistantly having transactions go through in 400 ms. I'd like to see you back that claim up because everything in this space is technicals but that doesn't mean it's practically feasible: heck, even BT had a case now were you got four transactions censored!
Most cc companies have a 'balance trasnfer' card product with a longer 0%period as an intro offer. Chase's is its Slate product. Citi's is Simplicity. Discover will have good offers too. BoA and Wells Fargo also has BT cards woth good intro offers. This strategy is only good if your disciplined. No point in paying off the Amex woth a balance transfer card if your just going to reload the Amex again.
I think it's cheap. DYOR. Look into CoinJoin and Whirlpool. I've spent years following both projects. https://twitter.com/SamouraiWallet/status/1539618567276093441?t=BT4TfvTZed00FrfzwPM2_Q&s=19 I do not trust wasabi. They've made comments about how they don't want "criminals" to use their service. Well, that's not how this works. The same tools that protect the good guys, can be used by the bad guys. I work in...a field I don't feel like talking about right now, and that's the reality. Nothing stops a person from learning MMA and using it to mug people. Nothing stops someone from learning how to hack using 'good guy' tools / teachings and then using them for 'evil'. It's the same tools. So, by wasabi agreeing to help keep the 'baddies' out, they are not being neutral. Who is a bad guy? A guy who wants privacy? English is my second language, so I hope this all makes sense. Not financial advice, not legal advice. Just privacy advice :)
Hi, I'm a **Wikipedia admin** and author of **several thousand articles**, including **a number of Featured Articles**. I mostly write about highly technical topics like [fusion](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Ignition_Facility) and [obscure programming languages](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JOSS), so I have a feeling of what this article might *want* to look like. I've read the article, and while the body is basically randomly distributed factoids, it does have some good information. But it's just all over the place. I'm not sure there's really any "good" layout that would fix it. But overall, I think the tone of the body is fine - yeah there's negativity, but its isolated to the negativity parts, which seems fine. And the history section strikes me as rather good indeed. I think the "real problem" is the introduction. It's the only thing the vast majority of readers will actually read, in the 90% range. And the lede is absolutely terrible. It doesn't describe that the blockchain *does*, how coins come to exist, the whole purpose of the "block" part of the chain... but it does say something utterly random about the library of congress for some reason. The lede is the most important part of the article. This is why I spend so much time trying to get them *just* right. I'm patting myself on the back here, but I believe this is what they are supposed to be like: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZETA\_(fusion\_reactor)](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZETA_(fusion_reactor)) I have looked over the edit history and comments, and the complaints I see in this thread are vacuous. The edits are being reverted because they are bad edits and the page is locked because there are so many bad edits that they can't keep up. I mean, the last complaint on the talk page, which is where it should be, is entitled "I find your this to be biased heavily". Ummm, ok... Please don't blame the admins for following the rules. Yes, those rules are arcane and... large... but so are most rule sets. The sort of name calling and accusations seen in this thread, do you think that advanced your cause? In any event... I'm willing to take a stab at fixing the lede. I think the thing it most desperately needs is a description of how coins come to exist, how transactions get into the chain, and how you use those two as form of/replacement for currency. The rest can be distilled into a single para at the end. I *hate* having to quote multiple sources for this sort of thing, I think that simply confuses the reader. So to start: **What is the best mainstream press article you've read on the** ***mechanics*** **of BT? No, not some bitcoin related web site, an article in something like the WSJ or NYT or similar that you read it and said "yeah, this author gets it".** Send me your links and I'll try to find the wheat among the chaff and see what we can do with that.
>Hardware wallets are airgapped from your computer not all HW are "airgapped from your computer", unless you are indeed using an airgapped device. *airgapped* means insulated, never connected to any device, not even with USB. airgapped devices can communicate with the watch-only wallet broadcasting transactions using QR codes or SD card. this way, you can verify the data being transferred. this is not possible while using USB, WiFi or BT. if not opensourced, you don't know what kind of data the device is transferring via USB to native application, it could even upload the full seed and you'll never know.
It depends on the scenario and opportunity it presents at that very moment. To the average investor, taking out a loan is suicide as many times they will get rekt especially if they have no financial literacy and understanding of the market. I've utilized BT (0% Interest for a period of 8-12 months) on trades/stake where I have made profits to pay off the BT I've taken out while being up. It all comes down to the scenario and how much experience one has in the markets to make use of what is before you.
for cold storage, i'd go for a completely airgapped hardware signing device, no USB, no BT. i do still have an old Cobo Vault (keystone now) with my seed loaded but i never used it to spend since i don't really trust their closed source libraries. i just keep it in case i need to spend. i also use a old Nano S, loaded with the same seed but never connected to anything. i use it as a simple to use legacy for my bro and my so in case something happens to me. i believe that for cold storage, you don't even need a hardware device, just generate your seed with dice throws, derive at least an hundred addresses and just deposit there.
moving to an hardware signing device is a good idea, heightening a lot your seed security and it's probably enough. but if you plan to manage consistent amounts, specifically for BTC, i'd advise to look into open source devices, considering how critical is the Random Number Generator used to create the seed and the nonce of transactions. i'd also chose a completely airgapped solution, that means no BT no wifi no USB connection. unfortunately, the only completely opensourced solutions are cumbersome to manage (seedsigner-jade), expensive to get in italy (coldcard) or require a dedicated unrooted mobile possibly with removed radio modules (airgap vault). the plug and play solutions like Keystone are not completely opensourced (ECDSA library and SE). the alternative is to manually create your seed rolling dice and using offline in a disposable computer this great tool: https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ that will give you anything you need when you want to spend at a later time. mind that if you go this way, you need to know exactly what you are doing. if you go down deeper, i'd advise to also setup your own node and get heightened privacy and selfsoverignity, keeping your extended public for yourself. you could then use Sparrow on pc, and bluewallet on android to connect to your own electrum private server.
he posted a setup video on YouTube with his actual seed phrase and didn't completely edit out his seed phrase's QR code, anybody could've grabbed it. also the video was made using what appears to be a GoPro, meaning it was on an sd card then edited on a computer. [https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/15uyl1d/comment/jy55np9/?utm\_source=share&utm\_medium=web2x&context=3](https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/15uyl1d/comment/jy55np9/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) the printer communicates via encrypted BT to the wallet, only connects for a fraction of a second, and is AES 128 encrypted
You can see whatever you want to see for BTC. The problem is, virtually no one with actual money sees BT as an inflation hedge or a store of value. In fact, over the past couple years we've seen the worst inflation spike in 40 years and BTC utterly and abysmally failed as an inflation hedge. Factually failed. Observable failed. Maybe one day, but not today.
I've just posted a post few days ago that I want to buy some BT...that's what I did..im not a scammer.. I read reviews on the website trustpilot there you can find like all the scamming sites..it says its trustworthy. I'm looking for someone who has maybe also an account.

If you really want cheap "paper" wallet, just buy RassperryPI Zero for 5$ (it is totaly offline, even dont have WIFI/BT chip), download Electrum, copy to RPI with USB key, ***verify PGP***, install. Generate new wallet, write down you seed and store it. Then you can save in Excel any number of public addresses and use them as "paper" wallet. When you will need to spend them, you have a seed stored. You can even use Electrum on offline RPI0 as cold wallet, just to sign transactions.
**Andreas M. Antonopoulos** has my vote: [Watch this amazing video from the Bitcoin conference 2013](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT8FXQN-9-A&t=921s) He gave an outstanding speech to an empty hall in 2013. His knowledge, passion and eloquence is pure class ... the rest is history.
>And the whole point of crypto is to transact with it. That is the \*advertised\* point. But let us get real, that nearly never happens except for mostly illegal market. Mostly coins are used as a speculative commodity, illegal stuff. But direct BT transaction for legal service or legal goods unrelated to crypto without exchanging for USD/EUR first ? That is a ridiculously small amount.
Everyone else’s BTC is worth more because of losses. But losses also reduce stock-to-flow ratio, which means inflation in BTC is more than it could be (but, when inflation drops to 0, it won't matter anymore). The good news is that no one can know exactly how much BTС is actually lost, so this is unlikely to affect the price much.
In the short term, it is actually bad. Losses reduce stock-to-flow ratio, which means inflation in BTC is more than it could be. But, when inflation drops to 0, it won't matter anymore. The good news is that no one can know exactly how much BTС is actually lost, so this is unlikely to affect the price much.
To be fair, there were already inherent threats to ledger that people knowingly took a risk on (like Ledger Live and the BT functionality). I interpret that they can’t get your seed unless you physically sign it…so to me that’s not that big of a deal
> I am not saying they should buy BT.... But some basic financial education would be nice - at least to understand how your money lose value overtime. This is a big part of our education system that is failing us. Coming out of the school system I didn't understand fundamentals of budgeting and the financial systems. If we taught the kids about how the money printer go brrrrr devalues their savings, we would have a lot more people investing young. I beat myself up constantly for all those years of going out drinking when that money could've been starting my nest egg.
TL;DR was on a break at work so typed a bunch of nonsense. Guess I am not lazy to type lol. They have to learn also how the system works. Most people are like sheeps no joking. I have coworkers who earn good and they tells me that they are able to save a lot of money - when I ask and they tell me in the bank I just can't.... I am not saying they should buy BT.... But some basic financial education would be nice - at least to understand how your money lose value overtime. "It is too risky" said my brother In law when my girlfriend wanted to open an account in mutual funds for her sister's daughter. We planned on putting in $2000 to start and $100 every month. He said NO!! - better open a bank account and put the money inside "investing is for the rich" he said. Sometimes I hate people...
Helium is a worthless project anyway, i got a helium hotspot a long time ago, i opened it by curiosity, what do i find in it ? a Raspberri pi with a BT/Wifi card and a LoRaWAN card, and a emmc module, total cost of that ? 70$ at best, actual cost of the helium miner ? 600$ Helium used to let you make your own hotspot, then they decided to stop it and only allow certain manufacturers, oh whoops! by some coincidence there's a x10 markup on what is being sold, i wonder why!! As if that wasn't annoying enough, whoop, Helium comes out with their 5g network, basically invalidating the previous network, and guess what, boom, BRAND NEW devices!!! what a deal, only 3000$ for my box made of the exact same thing, but with a 5G module instead of a LoRaWAN one. Helium WAS a commercial project, powered by it's people and led by the helium project, have you heard of anyone actively using the helium network ? i haven't, and if there are, please educate me and tell me if they're using it with success today. The helium team saw how much money could be made just by selling hardware with false promises of doing a 1000x for crypto, and they never hooked off that since, helium is all about money and it's worthless, it's the only thing the devs see. Amazon Sidewalk will absolutely slam Helium, no fancy technology, just wifi, make it opt out, so clueless users (which are most users) won't even know, and there you go, you have an insanely big mesh network for free! Even with the occasional wary user that will turn it off, you can still expect more than 75% of amazon products users to not even bother with it and have it on.
Arculus Wallet. Credit card sized wallet. Keys stored on secure element. Tap to sign transaction via nfc. Another option is Cool Wallet. Credit card sized also. Water proof wallet with E- ink screen connects via BT. Much more advanced features then Arculus. But it needs to be changed every couple of months. I have both.
Hi, I work in smt. The footprint looks like it's made for one of the five-pin ICs, three legs on one side and two on the other. Like this: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/analog-devices-inc.-maxim-integrated/MAX6515UKP085%2BT/5821270?utm_adgroup=General&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping_DK%2BSupplier_Pelonis%20Technologies%2C%20INC.&utm_term=&utm_content=General&utm_id=bi_cmp-442211317_adg-1298523654079891_ad-81157814309716_pla-4584757336996449_dev-m_ext-_prd-5821270&msclkid=9787d36bdc2613450a36b084ebf8a158 The pads and traces don't look damaged though, so either it wasn't populated to begin with, or was removed with proper heat tools. I wonder what its purpose was, and if it's just a broken piece of a larger board, like a tab that broke off or something. It's weird that it has a revision number but no other identifiers.
Saying you’re opting out, and then quoting prices in USD.. highlighting asset performance and then claiming the returns aren’t a driver of why you own BT… If only we could get you in front of Buffett (or the folks at the unrelated business of Vanguard), you’d surely have them all convinced in no time!
It is a personal bias against BT, but I can't equate a device which has security as its top priority and connecting to it via bluetooth. But probably that also applies to most phones we carry in our pockets nowadays with lots more private data on it
You’re right! The statements of fact are that BT is too slow and thirsty to ever be a real transactions backbone. LN having to exist proves that. All these “tools” are just workarounds for “wish this was just a database.” I’d be a little more humble in general terms considering FTX failing just ripped the dick off of your entire community.
You can airgap your mobile device and generate the seed . There are even mobile wallets that allow you to use an old phone offline to generate your seed , sign Txs before you broadcast via BT or NFC to your regular everyday use online mobile device.
My dude that is a blatant lie and really shows you the authenticity behind these posts and users like you: "their tourism is up 30% directly from BT" When in reality it's: " The tourism industry is up 30% since the Bitcoin Law took effect" https://www.pwc.com/gx/en/financial-services/pdf/el-salvadors-law-a-meaningful-test-for-bitcoin.pdf ....And guess when the Bitcoin law took effect? The height of the pandemic.... ​ Like come on dude, just blatant misrepresentation from your end. How can your comment come off as anything other than blatant misrepresentation for the sake of boosting your point? Like come on dude, that's just blatant bullshit.
while bluetooth is very convenient, did you try to connect your Nano X using an OTG cable? or using a desktop/laptop? i think that the issue you are facing is caused by BT transfer. about adoption: i think it's quite easy to manage cryptocurrencies compared to just some years ago. sure there are some issues, but to be honest, many people are also struggling to understand how to manage with an online bank account.
Dude's a govt spook. He randomly showed up on the scene like an all star on Bitcoin Twitter after BT “high society” found him posting some “super smart” long ass article on LinkedIn. And he has been propped up by big BT accounts ever since. Now he has the privilege to speak on the behalf of Bitcoin to the White House??? He has no street cred in Bitcoin he is part of the narrative and ops of some govt agency for sure. Like less that two years ago…August 2021. That’s when his Twitter account was started. Lol

***Bitcoin BTC dies by it's own hand by 2044*** Why? Because Halvings of the inflationary coinbase mining reward every four years halve the miners' current $65/tx@3tps fee subsidy income. Traditionally, Bitcoin BTC supporters have suggested that price doublings will compensate. But if this were hypothetically to happen, Bitcoin's marketcap would therefore exceed gold's current marketcap by 2044 (by 3 times). But once Bitcoin exceeds gold's marketcap, it can no longer double again in value in the following four years. Because there's no further source of outside funds to invest new money in the following four years equivalent to its then-greater-than-gold marketcap. It can't be all the gold holders at that point - they wouldn't be wealthy enough. So from that point onwards, Halvings halve coinbase mining rewards every four years, without their individual value rising. So miners drop out, and security falls inexorably. Bitcoin BTC ultimately dies. Fees can't replace the current $65/tx@3tps coinbase mining reward subsidy. Because Bitcoin is already running at 3tps, with a maximum 7tps settlement capacity. Many fewer people would use Bitcoin if it had $65 fees. Many fewer people would consider opening and closing a Lightning Network channel with $65 fees. So far more likely is that fees would need to be an average $650/tx at 0.3tps. Peaking at over $1000/tx to get first block confirmation. This would result in a fee spiral with the last Bitcoin holders desperately trying to get out with $10,000/tx fees as it collapses at 0.03tps. Cheaper energy in future doesn't change this. Cheaper energy simply results in more miners calculating more hashes. As could any potential attacker. Cheaper electricity doesn't affect the Game Theory at all. Fiat inflation doesn't change this. The miners need to be paid real value to pay for real electricity for real security. Any hypothetical future success of Lightning Network would actually make the problem worse, not better, because it retains fees in L2, so they don't reach the miners on L1. The only way to avoid this doom is for Bitcoin to continue to subsidise fees with inflation. The only way to avoid this doom is for Bitcoin to add a permanent ~1% tail emission. Which gives it a nominal infinite Maximum Supply. Naturally Bitcoin supporters are in no way yet ready to accept this option. Change my mind. Not with insult. Not with derision. Not by downvoting in the hope that hiding this comment makes it untrue. Change it with a well constructed logical argument. Identify the error in my constructed theory. Quote that line. Explain why it's incorrect. Don't just handwave. Change my mind. ***Bitcoin BT dies by it's own hand by 2044***
It’s part of an ISO 4217 standard > When it comes to assets that aren’t connected to a country, and commodities such as gold and silver, ISO uses the letter X. In the case of gold and silver, X is followed by the official symbol for their chemical element. So the symbol for gold, for instance, is XAU — X followed by AU, which is the chemical symbol for gold. Bitcoin, of course, isn’t a chemical. So ISO followed the letter X with the first two letters of the currency: BT. You could have googled it tbh
You can use a Dremel grinder to destroy the chips, which allows the phone to connect: GSM, WiFi and Bluetooth. Sometimes WiFi & BT are integrated into one chip. Be careful though, you can destroy your phone that way. But I can confirm, that it does work.
