How is Bitboy involved in every bad thing? I mean, I haven't heard a single good thing about this guy. NOT A SINGLE ONE. How crooked you have to be, if every news from every source have only bad things to say about you.
Again, I don’t own XRP. I don’t give a flying fuck about it. But I don’t like people like you who think they’re crypto god and everyone else is beneath you if they talk about a project you don’t like. Not a fan of your toxic bullshit. And you didn’t provide “proof” of shit. You linked a dogshit article from a notoriously dogshit website talking about ONE SINGLE PARTNER. You can go to Ripple’s website and see for yourself who they’re partnered with. If you think they would have Bank of America’s logo plastered on their homepage without their permission then I have very little faith in your intelligence.
Dont listen to Crypto Influencers. Ever. Like literally E V E R. Not one single time in the entire history of Crypto or the Internet has a SINGLE influencer not been scamming you. Not once. Not a single time ever. Literally 100% of all Crypto Influencers are scammers. End of Discussion.
Not from a crypto perspective. Technically, they hold the keys, so they hold the crypto. How many more CEX failures need to happen for people get this into their heads? You’re relying on legal protections to get your coins back. Cryptographically, technologically, and physically, those coins belong to Coinbase. Crypto is not fiat. Crypto is designed to be in self-custody. It’s designed to be P2P and be separate from banks. Now we have this much stored IN A SINGLE crypto bank.
Again you keep repeating words and saying it doesn’t go past that 2017 peak, was that peak some symbolic deterministic peak for you lmao? And you ignore the whole fact Eth dominance have been climbing steadily while Btc dominance going down? Speaking of centralized how is BTC any better than ETH? A few entities control the majority of the mining power that are supposed to secure the network instead they can choose to flip at anytime they want, plus ASIC miner dominated by SINGLE producer? (Plus the average joe without ultra huge capital and access to ultra cheap electricity doesn’t even have the economic incentive to help secure the network) Let me guess you’re the blinded so call Bitcoin Maxi that argument make zero sense and doesn’t get your fact straight before promoting your Bitcoin bag.
There are more than ten thousand (currently 14736) Bitcoin nodes, and in order for it to be lost, someone/something would have to destroy the blockchain data on **EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.** (And probably other places where it's backed up.)
Then perhaps any meeting between citizens and government officials should be public in nature. Should you need to speak to an employee of mine, I can't think of a SINGLE reason why that meeting should be private other than your sketchy ass is trying to do something....sketchy.
At $1, DOGE would require AN ANNUAL INJECTION OF NEW MONEY OF 5.25 BILLION DOLLARS. NOT PUMPING THE PRICE ***AT ALL***. Needed just to **sustain** a $1 price. $5.25b EVERY YEAR. $5.25b EVERY SINGLE YEAR. In a world with a median daily wage of only $6. $5.25 billion. You're living in La La Land - and I'm getting sick of this manipulation of noobs.
Umm... not really... Of the exchanges I used: \- KuCoin has zero support for U2F keys. \- Gemini, Coinbase - no problems with yubikey and Firefox/Chrome. \- For Binance I had to fake my browser tag so that Binance thinks Firefox is Chrome and then Yubikey works fine. \- Kraken does support U2F, but with a very lame protocol and the implementation is very sketchy. Up until a few months ago they allowed U2F keys to be used only with the "pseudo-random password" method (if you open any editor and press the button on the key, it behaves as a keyboard and spits out a pseudo-random string of characters) and not the proper authentication where the key also verifies the domain, protecting you from any form of phishing. Only lately they implemented (almost) proper way of using U2F keys, but... only for login and there is no way to set-up a second backup key. So now Kraken has support for a SINGLE U2F key with proper authentication for login, but all the other actions requiring a key (withdrawals, master reset of passwords and 2FA methods (!!!!) ) still use the "pseudo-random password" of the U2F key, which is pretty lame.
Everyone is welcome to read "theory" as "hypothesis" in this thread if it makes them feel any better about the issue. But anyone arguing over etymological semantics is missing the point. The point is that the ~~theory~~ hypothesis ***stands unrefuted*** \- until someone quotes even a *single line* from my post, with an explanation of *why they believe that line is incorrect*. So far, ***after 500 comments, NOT A SINGLE PERSON HAS DONE THAT. NOT ONE***. Until they do, *everything else is simply an attempted diversion from* ***Bitcoin being doomed to die by its own hand by 2044****.* The ~~theory~~ hypothesis stands unrefuted: `Bitcoin is doomed to die by its own hand by 2044`
To add to your comment: They were not for free for anybody who owned a single one of his NFTs. There was a raffle for these addresses for a SINGLE MINTLIST SPOT! [source](https://nitter.net/artgobblers/status/1570155429568475136)
100% agree..... Problem is though, I 100% am certain the following WILL happen, all the ground work is being laid into the public discourse preparing people to accept it: 1 - CBDC's will be implemented 2 - Universal Basic Income will be implemented 3 - UBI will ONLY be paid via CBDC 4 - Social Credit Scores will finally be implemented and will affect your UBI payments (you do "bad" things, you get less CBDC UBI payments.... You do "good" things like inform on your neighbours, you get bonus CBDC UBI payments) CBDC's are the SINGLE most dangerous thing on the horizon that will be catastrophic for privacy and any last vestiges of personal sovereignty! The introduction of CBDC's will see the demise of fiat.... That effectively means the end of P2P to move value on/off networks somewhat anonymously! They are already flexing their ability through regulation to force network participants to NOT validate certain transactions that are deemed to be "bad".... How long until trying to buy Monero with ETH is deemed bad, the attempted transaction flagged and the ETH segregated on the network as "dirty" and everyone refuses to validate any transfers tainted by the "bad" ETH..... People in this space need to WAKE THE FUCK UP! CBDC's are the tool the status quo will use to capture the entire crypto sector.... The OG dream will be effectively dead at that point! Resist the implementation of CBDC's with every breath in your being!
What if blockchain gaming just means paying for in-game items and content using bitcoin or eth rather than credit card? Or storing your digital assets like skins on the blockchain rather than in some company's database? If these things are abstracted away from the user, what is the negative about this? You prefer to be completely at the mercy of big corporations with respect to control of your accounts and items? I'm not saying that CATHEON is the future, but I am saying that I don't think you speak for EVERY SINGLE GAMER, and I think these things are coming whether you like it or not.
>"Lastly, usually when people say “two factor authentication”, they are referring to a centralized server type account like they are used to from web2. This is the pattern where you have an authenticator app and have to enter a few extra characters when logging in. That type of two factor authentication simply does not apply to the type of wallet that MetaMask is today. MetaMask is a “user custodial wallet”. This means that no one controls your accounts except for you (or anyone else who gets ahold of your Secret Recovery Phrase or private keys). Since we do not hold your private keys on a server that we maintain, or for that matter, at all, we are unable to put restrictions on when you can transact. This also means we cannot censor you or prevent you from using your own funds, but it can be more responsibility than you’re used to compared to traditional login systems." Already knew all that, I understand what MetaMask is... Still don't agree with it on a security level. A SINGLE point of failure should ALWAYS be avoided!
These coins have been extremely centralized since their inception. BNB, Solana, Algo, all of these big coins are EXTREMELY centralized and have been since the beginning. This is why it's so important to do research on your coins and only invest in things you 100% trust. Imo I can't 100% trust a coin that is centralized. BTC is the only 100% decentralized crypto that I can put my absolute faith in because NO SINGLE PARTY will ever be able to manipulate btc at its core. Can't say as much for these other coins. Not that they're bad coins, but they completely go against the nature of cryptography.
Right, glad someone said it. Like, which reality are these people residing in where wealth redistributes anyway other than to the top? It has been the SINGLE constant of capitalism worldwide. Little wonder when concentration of money = concentration of power. CBDC won’t impact the rich pulling the strings very much because they keep their wealth in assets and use shell companies for anonymity.
Everytime I invest a small amount into an alt coin it suddenly goes up by like 20-40 percent in a short period of time. EVERY SINGLE TIME SMH. It makes me think. If I put in 1k I’d get a few hundred in profit as a return. That’s not bad at all.
The mistake, as tweeted by the lawyer: >THE SEC DOES NOT RELY ON A SINGLE EXPERT! >There is NO SEC expert testimony attempting to prove price correlation between the efforts of Ripple and the price of XRP. >There is NO SEC expert testimony claiming XRP holders relied on the expertise, skill or management of the Ripple team OR expert testimony claiming XRP holders were led by promises and inducements made by Ripple, before acquiring XRP.”
"I would be happy to point out specific users and link posts that I am adamant are paid advertising by Algorand." This is true. Downvote all ya like, marketing team and shills. Doesn't make your efforts any less obvious. Other projects do this too here, as well. Not like it's just Algo. But this place became full-on marketing space for anything that wants to. So that's what happens. ​ And the comments are funny - "OP has a history of enjoying other projects" - yes. And it's no different than you then. Why are you automatically more correct than this person (well, we know, you're upset that A SINGLE POST isn't throwing confetti on what you like. They just aren't buying the marketed posts, but maybe they're buying the marketed posts of whatever they support. Or maybe they don't, and they genuinely like whatever they're into more. I ain't wasting a second more on this shit, to look. The shills sure will, and are, though.
Number 2 > Decentraland 'is a software running on Ethereum that seeks to incentivize a global network of users to operate a shared virtual world. Decentraland users can buy and sell digital real estate, while exploring, interacting and playing games within this virtual world.' OH MY GOD WHAT A REVELUTION, SOMEONE TELL SECOND LIFE THAT THEY DONT EXIST. NOT ONE SINGLE USE CASE. I lied, except for scammers best platform!
Nobody is gonna say shit to you when things are going good. But you can be damn sure theyre gonna remind you about it weekly or whenever they see some clickbait about how crypto is tanking, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Best to just keep that shit to yourself. Act like you went through that phase and you sold off your portfolio so that you can stop having to hear it.
This is a misconception. To control a POW chain you need to expend the energy and therefore cost EVERY SINGLE BLOCK, this is different to proof of work where you bear the expense once and then can rent seek once you are rich.
You never asked for proof when he said he would give Dataprim away. You never did and he never followed on his promise because it was just another lie. You didn't ask for proofs of his claims but the judge did, and he never gave any. NOT A SINGLE ONE. Because lying and deceiving is hardwired in his brain.

which is what you would expect on [centrally premined scam](https://imgur.com/a/JM66BEO?nc=1) chain where the central premine of 72m eth is on EVERY SINGLE fork, giving 1 party control over which versions get rug pulled EF scammers were literally laughing in leaked telegram chats about rug pulling any versions of eth they disliked including etc imagine thinking eth is decentralized people who failed enough at basic literacy to fall for eth are also same people who fall for proof of stake which is always permissioned by token printer kind of funny just how little thought processes a human being can have to decide that proof of centrally printed stake is "decentralized" lol.
Greed, all works on greed. Invest the money, youll make millions Give us your money, youll make millions Got this deal for you, all you need to do is give me money, youll make millions Works EVERY SINGLE TIME Used to be called grt rich quick schemes, but thats a little obvious even for the minions to work out
I have bought crypto hundreds of times. I have bought crypto during FOMO pumps and during deep dips. I have never bought the bottom. There was a better price later EVERY SINGLE TIME. If you first hear about a coin when it's pumping, you're probably too late to make a significant return. If it's a project that you think has a future, wait for red to buy
As somebody that works in the Energy sector, this is laughable. So is solar BTW. You think those people with "massive" energy drains mining even remotely rack up a couple percent of what EVERY SINGLE Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon server farm uses all over the globe uses? Let alone the banks, Get over your own nonsense. Nobody wants to detroy the planet, but don't be stupid. Your crowd is quick to blame crypto, but simultaneity want to replace all cars with never ending parking lots of supercharging Tesla's. You bitch about using papertowels which are 100% recyclable, but want to see 240v high amperage hand dryers everywhere. You want to stop using plastic bags, which suck and are barely recyclable and want the planet bag on paper bags which not only create more deforestation but paper plants put more horrible chemicals into the environment than most other factories. All while bashing 0 emission Nuclear power, trashing near zero emission natural gas, then bitch when all that's left if the remaining coal plants. The promoting of unsustainable Solar farms which cost more to build than they generate as well as wind, which are both better at both more deforestation and killing birds than anything. Time to wake up.
Part of the issue is there is a "give a mouse a cookie" effect with these kind of things (it's a children's book, check it out if you don't get the reference). I worked in social services for like 5 years, so I've seen the way people tend to behave firsthand. The issue is if people would be smarter financially & more responsible after complete forgiveness & I don't think that would happen. I'd rather they forgive student debt rather than waste all our tax money also. The fact they're happy printing up untold billions to support Ukraine and inflate even more with the "inflation reduction act" but will only forgive $10,000 in student loans is very telling. The government knows those loans are assets and doesn't want to give up assets. Speaking as someone with ~80k in student debt, if they're going to do it, they should just forgive EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR. Zero or hero. I'm fine either way. 10k is a drop in the bucket for many of us, it's more like a slap in the face, stringing the population along.
The way it’s done in TradFi is by using a Sequence ID which is attached to EVERY message in both directions. If either side of the communications channel ever sees a skipped number in the sequence, it can reset the connection and reinitialize starting from the last known good seq. Also, TradFi uses only a SINGLE connection for two-way communication. The fact that crypto exchanges require you to use REST to place an order but WebSockets to receive data is the source of many race conditions and much pain. If crypto API’s would allow order placement via WebSocket, and also attach a per-channel seq to every message, it would be SO much easier to write a reliable trading platform. As it stands, I can come up with some simple race conditions that are literally impossible to avoid due to the way crypto API’s currently work. It’s embarrassing, really. When I hear TradFi coders ripping on crypto as immature and crappy and unreliable, I have to just shrug and agree and apologize for the script kiddies who wrote these exchanges without having any background in finance.
I believe Satoshi somehow invented something very close to r/thelightningnetwork years ago. He described the technique to a Bitcoin developer in a personal email: > An unrecorded open transaction can keep being replaced until nLockTime. It may contain payments by multiple parties. Each input owner signs their input. For a new version to be written, each must sign a higher sequence number (see IsNewerThan). By signing, an input owner says "I agree to put my money in, if everyone puts their money in and the outputs are this." There are other options in SignatureHash such as SIGHASH_SINGLE which means "I agree, as long as this one output (i.e. mine) is what I want, I don't care what you do with the other outputs.". If that's written with a high nSequenceNumber, the party can bow out of the negotiation except for that one stipulation, or sign SIGHASH_NONE and bow out completely. > The parties could create a pre-agreed default option by creating a higher nSequenceNumber tx using OP_CHECKMULTISIG that requires a subset of parties to sign to complete the signature. The parties hold this tx in reserve and if need be, pass it around until it has enough signatures. > One use of nLockTime is high frequency trades between a set of parties. They can keep updating a tx by unanimous agreement. The party giving money would be the first to sign the next version. If one party stops agreeing to changes, then the last state will be recorded at nLockTime. If desired, a default transaction can be prepared after each version so n-1 parties can push an unresponsive party out. Intermediate transactions do not need to be broadcast. Only the final outcome gets recorded by the network. Just before nLockTime, the parties and a few witness nodes broadcast the highest sequence tx they saw. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Payment_channels
Well, it honestly just depends on what you price your alts against. In fiat pricing, many will smash new all time highs. However, in BTC pricing, historically EVERY SINGLE CRYPTO hit's an all time high, that it has not seen again. ETH/BTC all time high was in 2017. ADA/BTC all time high was beginning of 2018, and it only came close to the previous all time high during that brief period last year when ADA soared past $3 while Bitcoin was still recovering from the Summer crash. Pretty much everything else that's as old as ADA is massively devalued compared to BTC, and ADA isn't even that old.
This isn't anything new, not sure why everyone is sceptical about this. Crypto Casinos have been a thing for a few years now. Decentraland has casinos you can walk into and start playing. DecentralGames is the one who hosts these games, they have blackjack, roulette, slots and now they introduced poker. For those that are saying "yea sure IF you win..", the same applies to a regular casino. Only difference is, you get paid out immediately AND you can read the script for each gambling game along with every SINGLE game that was every played. I would further argue that metaverse casinos are better and safer that real life casinos, but I'm busy gambling and having fun. Figure it out for yourselves.
"Green" energy is just another narrative framing trick they will use to control you in the future and monitor and micromanage every aspect of your lives to make sure you are"in compliance" with their made up list of "approved" uses of energy. It's bullshit, all of it. Energy use is the reason we are where we are as a species and not still living in caves. Oh is that a campfire keeping you alive? Unapproved energy use! You're polluting the environment with that soot! That carbon would be better captured in the wood and in the atmosphere! Not our problem that its -5C outside, think of the environment! If you burn a campfire to stay alive, pretty soon everyone is going to be doing it and then who will think of the polar bears?? My point is every single advance of human advancement throughout history has been an increase in our energy usage and it allowed us as a species to survive and thrive. Clothes dryers and Christmas lights use more energy than the Bitcoin network. Could we help the planet more if we weren't back to line drying our clothes and stopped illuminating or houses during the holidays? Debatable but let's go with the assumption that it would. Are we doing to do that "to save the planet"? No, the idea is ridiculous on its face. Bitcoin frees the entire planet from the central banking cartel that silently steals 10-50%+ of our savings every single year and does it through total authorization surveillance and control of our usage. Our money is built on nothing now, redeemable for nothing since 1971 and they are desperate for people not to figure out that they are all slaves, not figure out that there is a free, fair and unrestricted network open to all, without any centralized control by evil bank or nation states that is fully auditable and allows for global commerce without restriction. Bitcoin will absolutely free humanity and lift billions out of poverty while at the same time fixing the perverse incentives to waste energy for the current cancer ridden house of cards that is the financial system. Bitcoin could grow 100x in energy usage and still not come close to the armies of brick and mortar corporate offices, banking centers, tellers, accountants, shipping containers of gold, paper bills, metal coins, etc. Not to mention the perpetual wars to enforce the petrodollar, all the collateral damage they cause and the gigantic military industrial complex to support them. It also fixes the perverse incentives of inflation to make everything as cheap as possible using the worst materials and have designed obsolescence in everything so that it basically goes from unboxing to landfill in as few steps as possible. So in summary of this rant, Bitcoin's energy expenditure is worth every single Joule of energy that it consumes from now until the end of time, and the attempt to frame the energy debate as "green" vs "necessary for humanity" is just a PR campaign to get everyone on board with total financial surveillance and control, handing out "green credits" for your daily purchases so don't complain when your car stops because you've exceeded your "daily miles" or you're not allowed to buy that steak because tofu has a "smaller carbon footprint" and you've already used up all of your carbon credits for the week. It's all bullshit framing by billionaires in their luxury jets and high rise penthouses of your energy usage as "killing the planet" instead of advancing human civilization. Bitcoin will do more to save the planet in terms of realigning incentives to save, reuse and build quality than any other advancement in history and it will free humanity from these psychopaths in the process. Worth EVERY SINGLE JOULE.
Satoshi was the first to suggest rudimentary versions of payment channels and ways to replace unconfirmed transactions (RBF) for a fee market before he disappeared. The first version of Bitcoin released had a version of replacing transactions as well https://github.com/trottier/original-bitcoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L434 https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2013-April/002417.html Satoshi: >"An unrecorded open transaction can keep being replaced until nLockTime.

On top of all that, EVERY SINGLE ALTCOIN IS CENTRALIZED. The code can be changed by the biggest stakeholder, and then you listen to Klaus schawb from the world economic forum talk about how they want to get rid of democracy and install a stakeholder capitalist system where richest make the rules. Is this what you want?
it wasn’t in plain text, rather it was embedded in a file that was attached to the forum post, in which an user (probably a developer for the system) was, i guess discussing the system and left a cached file which included the credentials. i wouldn’t say the major fuck up was on the developer. the bigger problem was that THE WHOLE Shanghai Police database was locked behind A SINGLE LOCK. A SINGLE PASSWORD. It’s like a bank locked all of their gold in a shed with a fucking padlock.
Okay I’m gonna try explain this as best I can “Bro”. Unless evm and other comedown its going to be hard to accomplish as currently running on a node is expensive and very time consuming, your looking at right now a cost of around £70k+ a year for running a SINGLE node. Alchemy provides a solution but it still is littered with bugs,regression,spikes and oh disk issues cos hey, still saved on a server 👍 There are a number of issues from robustness to cost, while loggin chains work they still have events that fail. Above all else. The crypto model still uses currency to manover across the block chain, yes there are a number of free currencies that cost nothing or very little but these do not correlate as EVM or non-EVM smart contract’s or with compatable layers. Developers have built more non EVM daps moving away from the eth frame. Which allows a lot more, so yes potential in 5 years we may see progress, but crypto will have to have changed an aweful lot at that point, and all the investors who have put money in year after year are going to want that money back and then some. A desentralised web is a pipe dream. Companies like Facebook/google or any big tech companies will tell you their best money maker is you! The data they have on you! What you watch, what you look at, what your buy. All this will be stored on a node for web3, and there is no way big tech and governments are just going to allow this to be completely private. Even crypto will get regulated. Something as big as web3 will be regulated to kingdom come, the internet is used by virtually everything, even friggin fridges connect to the IoT. I know everyone would like privacy, but it will be a vailed mist.
You’re conflating some centralized Ponzi service, that steals user’s Bitcoins and loans them out to a ton of highly risky debtors, with Bitcoin. Or rather, with crypto. Like liberty4u2 (what a nice username) said, Bitcoin works just fine without trusting A SINGLE organization. It’s when you give your Bitcoin away where you incur IMMENSE risk. Whether that is an exchange, an earning/lending platform, or some other layer 2 chain (wBTC and AAVE), not your keys, not your coins. Simple as that. Maintain private key custody and security, and you maintain the self-sovereignty of being in complete control of your money.
yes a reddit sub with 5m members (not all who will read/respond to each and every single FUD post) can definitely influence a crypto market with thousands of coins and billions in market cap and multimillion dollar adverts/influencers/celebrities/whales also backing various coins /s ​ get real, we can MAYBE influence a launch/IPO coin in it's early stages if EVERY SINGLE one of the 5m of us on the sub went for it/pumped and dumped simultaneously, but something like ETH, Celsius/BlockFi/BTC/ADA - you are fairly deluded,
> Calm down Where is this coming from? Did a 3 sentences answer make you scared or something? > I haven’t said it’s legit to ask for 0.01 BTC to confirm a wallet. Fact is, I explicitly stated the opposite. You did not say the opposite, you just questioned the amount, not the nature of the transfer. So you are equating bank transfers exchanges use as light KYC and security measures to scammers asking for a Bitcoin deposit. So I'll ask once again, please point to a SINGLE legitimate exchange asking for crypto deposits for this purpose. > All I’m saying is that it’s not uncommon to use transfers as a way to confirm identity/access. It is not done outside of scams when it comes to crypto transfers. > (And as a side note, far from all “transfer to confirm” use a matching of the card/account holder name for KYC purposes and is sometimes performed also when there has not been and will not be any confirmation of identity, but just to confirm that the the person has access to the card or account. It prevents both mistakes and fraud.) That's what I've just said in my previous answer, not sure why felt compelled to restate this: "and ensure people can't empty your account to a completely different person".
It’s not meant to be currency. Currencies facilitate transactions. Bitcoin is a finite asset which facilitates storage of wealth. Why are real estate prices so damn high? It’s because the price is set by supply/demand and the demand for real estate isn’t just coming from people who need a roof over their heads. Much of the demand is coming from people who need somewhere to store their wealth. They choose real estate because real estate “always goes up” right. It always goes up, and always will, because it’s finite. Just like bitcoin. So now you see the utility for something to store our wealth. Now it also needs to be borderless, trust-less, finite, and decentralized. Fiat currencies are the worst place to store it and history will show you that. CDs, bonds, savings accounts lol. Those will all take losses equivalent to inflation but financial advisory won’t zoom out when suggesting them. They’ll just show the performance of the historic bull run. Just look at the history of fiat currencies… Hundreds of them, and EVERY SINGLE ONE FAILED as a storage of wealth. It’s time to turn the page
First of all, real inflation is running 2x what they are currently reporting. Under Clinton they changed the CPI formula but using the old method it's running at over 17%. All attempts to control inflation are akin to putting lipstick on a pig. Ever since Nixon decoupled the dollar, and with it the rest of the world's currencies, from gold, the collapse of fiat money has been inevitable. EVERY. SINGLE. FIAT. CURRENCY. IN. HISTORY. HAS. FAILED. EVERY. ONE. It's just a matter of time.
These are the people in charge of the crypto space. The tech might be good, but our ability to pick who to follow is as shit as ever. ​ The tech will always be used to scam people unless people learn to follow better leaders with integrity and ethics. ​ Idiots through and through. In the midst of this meltdown, we have SEC chair Hester Pierce calling for more BTC backed financial products. WT Actually F is wrong with our leadership in EVERY SINGLE ROLE.
Steam, blizzard and all of these multi billion dollar companies just take and take and take. I think we're watching it be born, I personally am following immutable x and other similar projects because I think that we will see adoption of nft with utility. If I had more experience I would make a game like wow or something and make every item an nft, I would make no part of it pay to win, it's free to play. But every SINGLE transaction I get a MINUTE FRACTION of the exchange and we can have free games back but with the added bonus of either paying to save time or using time for currency. In a way. It would open up a more realistic "play to earn" system. Where you don't need to initially put money in like these crypto cats or this shit, your momey comes from your worth of items you worked to get. People pay 500 dollars on csgo shit so why not be able to sell it? Look out for illuvium I am really really excited because God's Unchained is literally the same as hearthstone except it is on the blockchain and I own my cards as nft. So if illuvium actually looks THAT good, we started the new wave baby!
Why aren't you a billionaire? Fuck off, bro. Every single person peddling their own brand of TA is a scammer, a bad actor, and a cancer to this community. Show me a SINGLE fucking scientific study backing your claims. TA is guesswork with phony 'evidence'. It's retarded. Applying arbitrary trends seen historically to unrelated assets and asset classes. Risk management is something you can do, for sure, but you don't need astrology for men to achieve it. All you're doing is giving yourself a false sense of security BEcAuSe thE cHArT saId So.
Avoid every single one of them. EVERY SINGLE ONE. You go long bitcoin, you don't trade, swap, wrap, mint, or stake. You don't go yield searching. Look at the innovation of the Lightning Network. You HODL your bitcoin until a robust yield curve arrives. That will come as hyperinflation hit the small-midsize fiat currencies, and Lightning capacity builds.

You don't understand how a corporation works obviously. In most cases, businesses are in business to do business in the business they do business in. Car companies make cars. They hold cash for many reasons, including paying bills and with the intent to spend it to further the business. Air travel companies provide air travel. They hold cash for many reasons, including paying bills and with the intent to spend it to further the business. Retailers sell goods which are purchased from others. They hold cash for many reasons, including paying bills and with the intent to spend it to further the business. They are no more likely to hold BTC on their balance sheet in large amounts as they are to hold stock in a small cap mining company or an investment property in Palm Springs. If there is ever a reasonable use for BTC, this might change but most corporations' are simply not going to add a risk asset unrelated to their business to their balance sheet on a speculative basis. From a risk control perspective it makes 0 fucking sense. Sure, point out Tesla and Microstrategy but those are so far outliers for outlying reasons it's utterly irrelevant. Why shouldn't EVERY SINGLE CORPORATION buy real estate? It's done well, provides income and capital growth? Because it isn't their business.
WTF are you on about Mr last action? Why don't you tell me a SINGLE use case BTC (as an example) has and I will destroy you with FACTS on which other project can accomplish without all the disgusting impact on our environment.
because I don't need the money, and I know it'll come back eventually, just like it has the past 7 times I've held through and guess what, each time it's been worth more, and more, and more. Here's a better question for you. Are you disciplined enough to sell at the highs and reinvest *EVERY SINGLE PENNY* back in at the bottom? Odds are you'll spend the cash before we get to the pure bottom, and you'll have nothing to buy back in with.
Oh pls. 10 year old holders repeat that everything other than btc is a shitcoin and you have 30 2021 joiners telling them it's not and laughing during bull market. Dont punish the rest of us for literal babies who invest their life savings in some scam in a market where 99% coins die in 3 years. This will happen to every SINGLE shitcoin, ethereul including and especially. If you can't listen to experienced people in the space and still put money in celsius it doesn't need regulation, it needs you people to leave this space asap coz this hype money affects everyone.
BitcoinCash has improved something that Satoshi already mentioned. 0-conf. For everyday values 0-conf is save and instant. For larger sums 1 or more confs is advised. That is why Exchanges usually take a few confs before they recognize the tx. > I'm talkin' 1 hour for a SINGLE confirmation. That is just the usually variation that happens on all pow chains. Since BTC has more hash the variation is a bit smaller and 1h blocks are not as frequent but they happen. >DASH is the only proof of work crypto that's actually got instant transactions, and massive adoption. BitcoinCash tried to copy DASH in Venezuela, but its slower and less useful to them cuz of that Nah bro. BCH has some healthy adoption in Venezuela. And the merchants and customer all use 0-conf. >You can pay for food and other deliveries using DASH in Ven. You can't do that with BitcoinCash http://map.bitcoin.com got a map of dash? >DASH also got debit cards. BCH too >BitcoinCash is probably 4th or 5th in adoption while DASH is number one. Got any stats? BCH is No. 3 or 4 on Bitpay. >DASH is accepted at 155,000 retailers globally. Only when you count the creditcards which you can also do for BCH. >DASH is accepted at 155,000 retailers globally. Bitcoin is accepted at around 20,000. BitcoinCash MIGHT be accepted at around 2,000, or so. Again got a source?
Nah, no way. BitcoinCash is hella slow. Have you ever used it? Thanks to miners gaming the hashing algorithm (BitcoinCash shares mining algos with BTC which is waaayyy bigger), BitcoinCash has got some of the slowest transactions on the board. I'm talkin' 1 hour for a SINGLE confirmation. There ain't no way BitcoinCash is "instant". No way at all. DASH is the only proof of work crypto that's actually got instant transactions, and massive adoption. BitcoinCash tried to copy DASH in Venezuela, but its slower and less useful to them cuz of that. You can pay for food and other deliveries using DASH in Ven. You can't do that with BitcoinCash. DASH also got debit cards. BitcoinCash is probably 4th or 5th in adoption while DASH is number one. DASH is accepted at 155,000 retailers globally. Bitcoin is accepted at around 20,000. BitcoinCash MIGHT be accepted at around 2,000, or so.
Doesn't matter, this entire lawsuit is a complete and utter joke. If XRP is a security, then so is \*EVERY SINGLE FUCKING CRYPTO OUT THERE\*. They're not - so it's not. The American law system is a complete fucking joke for this to have gone on for as long as it has. Geezus. The SEC should be dismantled after this bullshit of a lawsuit. Gary Gensler needs to be hung up by his fucking nutsack for this shit. He's LITERALLY stifling innovation... he's not just stifling it, he's taking a huge shit on it like he's some kind of MAN. He's shit. He's a no-nothing piece of shit and I hope Ripple personally sues the fucking shit out of this little man for every thing he owns for dragging this BS of a lawsuit out for TWO FUCKING YEARS when he KNOWS he won't win.
The general public have no idea. The oil rig i work on uses 200 tons of diesel EVERY SINGLE DAY. Each one of our engines is bigger than my house and we have 5 of them. The cargo ships that sail all of our cheap Chinese goods around the world use about 250 tonnes. And yet us, in Britain at least, are told we are polluting the planet with our tiny 2l engines to justify paying so much in green tax. Its a complete scam. Don't think we are getting rid of oil any time soon. Solar, wind etc has its place but large industrial plant cannot run off a battery.
Here is how Satoshi explained it to me, in his words: An unrecorded open transaction can keep being replaced until nLockTime. It may contain payments by multiple parties. Each input owner signs their input. For a new version to be written, each must sign a higher sequence number (see IsNewerThan). By signing, an input owner says "I agree to put my money in, if everyone puts their money in and the outputs are this." There are other options in SignatureHash such as SIGHASH_SINGLE which means "I agree, as long as this one output (i.e. mine) is what I want, I don't care what you do with the other outputs.". If that's written with a high nSequenceNumber, the party can bow out of the negotiation except for that one stipulation, or sign SIGHASH_NONE and bow out completely. The parties could create a pre-agreed default option by creating a higher nSequenceNumber tx using OP_CHECKMULTISIG that requires a subset of parties to sign to complete the signature. The parties hold this tx in reserve and if need be, pass it around until it has enough signatures. One use of nLockTime is high frequency trades between a set of parties. They can keep updating a tx by unanimous agreement. The party giving money would be the first to sign the next version. If one party stops agreeing to changes, then the last state will be recorded at nLockTime. If desired, a default transaction can be prepared after each version so n-1 parties can push an unresponsive party out. **Intermediate transactions do not need to be broadcast. Only the final outcome gets recorded by the network. Just before nLockTime, the parties and a few witness nodes broadcast the highest sequence tx they saw.** [https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2013-April/002417.html](https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2013-April/002417.html)
Man, *every* transaction i make gets taxed here.. Buy crypto, tax. Trade crypto, tax. Stake crypto, tax. Gains on crypto, tax. Holding crypto, tax. Every SINGLE transaction gets taxed (22% iirc). With the whole cannabis thing, i'm concidering it an actual, viable country to move to. Biggest downside is uprooting our whole lives just for two things :/
I don't know why people keep saying "who falls for this". no one falls for this, everyone knows its a scam and hope they can get out before it implodes. Just like every SINGLE person here does not use any of the shitcoins they are holding, just waiting to dump it on the next person.
Yeah man, that’s not exactly my point. Even honest projects may not make good product as users may ruin it, with bot’s, copy/paste decks, multiple accounts and I don’t mean 5 or 10. I’m just saying, I hope that there will be some project which will make it through and the final product won’t be completely corrupted. I don’t want make a chore out of the hobby. Last few months in Gods Unchained were rather hard, so I didn’t participate almost at all. New over powered decks made game soulless and not exciting at all, while some people were very excited, grabbing all rewards using copy/past ONE SINGLE DECK on their 50 alt accounts…so exciting🥱 I’m a bit afraid what will happen when mobile version will go out. But maybe creators will do something about that, no idea, how would they control and prevent people from using 100 accounts and bots, but maybe they will come up with something which at least won’t be affected by such practices… Time will show I guess 😉
Before you drive yourself crazy about what people are saying, here’s the truth…they all say EVERY SINGLE POTENTIAL OUTCOME IS A POTENTIAL POSSIBLE OUTCOME. They do this to cover their asses… and also so they have a tweet or sound byte of them saying it so they can weaponize it once they know the actual outcome. They all love to say “listen… we’ve been telling you this since XXX! We’re the only ones who told you the truth! Smash that like button!”
You're 100% right, it's crazy that this sub was 100% aware of this then fast forward a couple years and these new degens are in support of Ripple. Shit is so anti crypto and makes a lot of sense seeing as how so many people here are not pro crypto laws. I hope they buy a fuck ton of this coin so Brad can just dump on them LIKE HE DOES EVERY SINGLE MONTH.
And even if he did think LUNA was a solid project, so did everyone else. Now he's being harassed online for speculating the exact same opinion as the people who are now harassing him? This sub loves to circlejerk about how they saw everything coming, but they only do it in hindsight. There's a few skeptical posts about every project, but the vast majority of people thought LUNA was a good bet, how many people were wishing they got in before it got so big? Being wrong about speculative assets doesn't mean you should have your name dragged through the dirt by some armchair PI on Reddit who's gonna warp what you said to fit their narrative. OP's post is just more evidence of people's inability to take responsibility for their own decisions. Like is everyone so brain dead they jump onto every coin that comes out of a youtuber's mouth? They don't research several sources and listen to several opinions and form their own decisions? THEY BUY COINS BASED A SINGLE TWEET according to OP. And then they still think they're not at fault somehow lol?
The only thing I know with certainty is that whichever coins I sell proceeds to skyrocket and when the ones I buy go on a downward spiral. This happens EVERY SINGLE TIME. My only wish is that whatever coin you choose I hope it goes up in value enough so you can better your life and that of others around you.🙌
**UST WILL NEVER FULLY RECOVER.** It's gone. Its reputation is damaged forever. Nobody will ever put more liquidity into a **shitcoin that** ***FAILED TO DO THE ONLY SINGLE THING IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.*** I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole.
