Everyone should always have equal opportunity to earn moons. No reason to make it a thing where those who can afford it deserve to earn more than those who can't. I'm glad to see that it's pretty much a consensus here that staking would be awful. And even OP changed their mind in an edit. Sometimes the people in this sub manage to get something right.
Because they astroturf aggressively and the mods of subs like r/bitcoin don't do anything about it. For example note how the OP of this post was sure to include the full brand name of the product 'Ledger Nano X' for no reason at all and how easy it was to set up, and has never created a post before this one about crypto before. Ledger is one of the most worthless companies in this space, which is saying a lot. In addition to the blatant shilling and closed sourced software, they are responsible for one of the more harmful data breeches in the history of this industry. Few actual customers of ledger would sing their praises because of how many of them were harmed by this company, and yet somehow magically they have people shilling them constantly on social media.
Great write-up OP, but nobody should trust links provided by users on Reddit, especially for sites you need to connect your wallet to. There are way too many scams and it's too easy for people to miss malicious links. To anyone following links from posts like this, always ensure the url is the correct one before connecting your wallet. r/cc is very well moderated but not all crypto subs are. (I'm looking at YOU r/binance )
I think OP is directing his anger at wrong issue. The Coinbase app itself is shit (always down during high volume) lots of bugs etc. Cancelling Coinbase One trial is very easy to do and you can do it anytime before it ends and still have the full trial. And cancelling lis clicking one or two buttons (which he says in OP that it’s not) ironically enough.
While I have no reason to not believe OP, I’d like to see a few more reports of others who have tried to cancel the same service. Sometimes a single customer can have an outlier of a shitty experience, often a combination of being unlucky and sometimes their own fault. It’s normally only those who face problems who are vocal. You don’t see posts about “I cancelled and it worked”. For transparency, I use Coinbase (not this particular service though) and have never faced a problem with them. Just lots of posts in here recently with people calling for end of the world and boycotts based on trivial things. Coinbase seem to be a bit of a target of these.
You made the claim. You need to prove it. It's not our jobs to disprove your claims. The OP showed that they commit to governance across multiple chains and they do vote on those chains. You made a blanket counterclaim that said otherwise. That blanket claim was proven false. So come back with evidence that your "new" limited scope claim is true.
good distinction is they're clearly staking on your behalf and taking some of the rewards. That's not really all that bad, IMO. Especially when juxtaposed with the scheme OP is trying to draw equivalence to, namely the suspiciously high and unsustainable rewards offered by Celcius, FTX, etc.
Hook me up too OP! It's an exciting journey to be on whatever happens. Your comparison of early BTC mining to ratios is one I think we'll see for sure, in 5 years' time on the sub even the 2021 low-point will seem unimaginably high I think. ![gif](giphy|mYZnB29KHRrxe)
No OP, but the point is in the US we don't arrest people at a federal level until they've been indicted by a grand jury. Then you have to start the extradition process which as you state is not like same day delivery. US Legal system is painfully slow, but for good reason. If you want fast justice go to Qatar and break some rules and see how fast you're fucked.
Neither OP's nor my own comments are about Ledger seeing your keys, nor have I seen anyone in the thread talking about this, so I'm not sure how this misunderstanding might have come about. In any case, my concerns are about privacy, not about the security of the private keys.
I only use my stationary pedal bike to mine bitcoin, of course as a result I have to keep pedaling 24/7 or I'll lose my rank in the mining pool, but its so GREEN (smells own fart sounds) What is up with all these nonsensical and blatant ads appearing in this sub ? The Engrish is Nigerian Prince bad, and really, there isn't anything else besides electricity used to mine bitcoin, only the source of the electricity can change, and its not like OP is offering any clean energy with the miner he's selling.
Obvious ad is obvious, of course there is a name brand mentioned in the clip, but lets be honest, OP has BOTH a girlfriend, AND she lets him buy absurdly expensive, geeky, Bitcoin themed tech toys to heat the bedroom. There are just too many absurdities for this not to be a product placement.
>We are saying it's a "good" price to buy, but you argue here it might not be the "best" price to buy. This is the crucial misassumption. This! OP should compare 16k to the '50k dip' in 2021, because that's where people thought was a good price to buy.

> OP is paranoid on another level... How so? Most of what they listed is like ultra basic. The site links to some doofy URL that's obviously fake. Like which of these do you think is Google's real site: * https://www.google.com or * https://google.russerve.ogclick.co.ru You don't have to be paranoid on another level to realize there's obviously something wrong going on here. You just have to know where the address bar is in a web browser and what it means. This is in addition to Metamask never requesting your email address so how are they emailing you to begin with?
It's not better, OP just wants people to buy his crappy heater that costs hundreds of dollars. Seriously, every time these things are mentioned it's si clearly a veiled ad. The company is (understandably I guess) targeting this community. If you want to mine Bitcoin, then go for it, but this thing is a crappy heater attached to a cheap miner, costing hundreds if dollars
The downside of this approach is that it's well-known, so any phisher worth their salt would strip those + infixes. Because it's guaranteed that the email address with the infix is also still valid. I'm with OP. Get your own domain and use a different email address for every single online service. Or be paranoid like me and even use a different email address per every single online purchase.

This is a great response. I hope OP amd others pay attention to that last paragraph >When you trade, you should feel no or little emotion, no matter if you win or lose. It should feel boring, like a job. That mental state, in my experience, is the best if you want to be consistently profitable.
I mean… at least crypto you can hold your own keys, you can verify the asset, and no single entity controls the protocol (mostly for BTC). Stocks are issued by the company, can only be held by a custodian, and can’t be properly verified that that aren’t being rehypothicated. There is likely more price manipulation in crypto due to market size, but fundamentally it is far more secure and less prone to base level manipulation. OP is at least somewhat right and you are somewhat wrong. Best to stop acting like a dick.
