Some alts run their mining on sheer charity, because the super fans want to run it. If some sub 100 alt can run on pure charity, than I am SURE Big B has enough super fans to also run that way. Also, most of the current mint is way over subsidizing mining, since way more computing power is used than is actually needed to secure the network. Also also, people could just wait a few blocks, and the finality gets exponentially better. After a few double spends in alt land, people will just insist on 50 blocks to settle on a B Cash payment, and even on that shit chain, they don't get double spent at that number of blocks, because its not worth it to mine that long a fake chain, there just isn't enough value on that network to double spend to that depth.
It’s dark but it’s true: Even without the ETF, the simultaneous onset of WW3 and a tradfi collapse will drive tons of capital into BTC. Smart money will understand that tradfi infrastructure is a target in wartime. The whole “we’re waiting for regulation” thing would go out the window to a certain degree as people would rather make SURE they don’t lose everything.
I strongly suggest that you do your own research. I also strongly suggest that you consider the following features: * Hardware wallets where YOU roll a 6-sided die 99 times for entropy (or flip a coin 256 times) * Air gap. * Bitcoin only. (Less complicated, less likely to have latent bugs.) * Open source is important, too Be SURE to buy directly from the manufacturers.
Hmm I think ppl don’t want anything to do with crypto because of the volatility associated with it. I honestly don’t believe ppl are staying away because of how hard it is. Most ppl I know think crypto is a scam and I’m VERY SURE won’t invest in it using their retirement money. Not trying to be a jerk here, just trying to have a discussion. I feel like we may be overthinking this ETF thing. Yes it is great for crypto… but how great may be exaggerated. If people won’t invest in crypto using their play day to day money… what’s the probability that they’ll use their retirement money?
The real issue with dead man switches is: how can you be SURE that it will fire? If going that route I'd probably want to have like half a dozen redundant dead man switches so that my inheritance scheme doesn't have a single point of failure.
I haven't investigated deep into the project, but seriously, a chrome orb to scan your biometric data? At least in half the "Apocalyptic AI uprising" movies they get a chip they can surgically remove or burn with a microwave. The ONLY way I can think of they could have made it worse is by making the led red. When I read the first news about it I was SURE it was a theonion thing.
Exactly. So many people in here are full of certainty (often the same that are SURE that bitcoin will reach a million dollars). I find it amazing not to realise that this is a much riskier, shadier market than traditional financial markets. You don't see whales and ponzi schemes with such an overwhelming influence outside of crypto.
Are we SURE this is a bear market? There’s a few different definitions but my “go to” is: “if the bottom of each dip is higher it’s a bull market.” “If the top of each peak is lower it’s a bear market” By that definition we’ve had a “slow moving bull” since November.
You can’t feed an army with 1 bag of rice by simply giving every soldier 1/10th of a grain of rice for dinner. Similarly, if you think you can “just divide” money or a commodity and have each unit be effectively worth the same, *THEN HAVE I GOT A DEAL FOR YOU!!!!* I’ll give you *TEN* gold nuggets for your *ONE* gold bar! What a deal! I’ll give you *TWENTY* pennies for your *ONE* five dollar bill! What a deal! I’ll give you *ONE HUNDRED* Sats for not a single bitcoin, not even half a bitcoin, but just *ONE-TENTH* of a bitcoin! *BUT HURRY AND ACT NOW, AS THIS DEAL IS SURE NOT TO LAST!!!*
In this incident, the exchange did not refute the claims. Instead, it said it had “taken action” against the employees who “may have violated” its internal policies, which it said included “wrongly soliciting or making recommendations that are not allowed or in line with our standards.” $90B crypto trades by employees*SURE*
Just off the top of my head, in no particular order: * Make SURE you have the correct DMG for *your particular chip*. Apple came out with M1 (and M2?) chips ... Click your "apple" icon in the upper corner, then "about this mac" then "more info --> You're looking for *which specific processor (or chip) your mac has*. Go looking for a DMG for what you're actually running. * Make sure that you get a DMG from an official site, and not one designed to *appear* to be official * Make sure you have enough unused disk space * "Right click" on the DMG in your Finder list, (control-click)... you'll see a popup menu with "Open" and "Open with..." or something like that
Most of society wouldnt unless ordered to by the courts. "im not legally required to give these unknown random people on the net these millions in ill gotten gains.... so lets give it to them anyways?" yeah to not be a dick, but with millions you can surround yourself with people who dont all you a dick. SURE SURE some people might still do the right thing, but depending on it outside a court order is laughable.
I love how many people jumped on this haha, it was just supposed to be silly. That would suck though and if we ever do get flying cars I am SURE it will happen, hell it already does happen without them. When I was a kid someone on the corner of my street had a drunk driver drive right into their living room.

> Are you sure your seed is compromised? That's the problem with Ledger. Their code isn't open, so there's no way to know if a seed is compromised: > There's no backdoor and I obviously can't prove it > [SOURCE](https://np.reddit.com/r/ledgerwallet/comments/13itm7u/is_there_a_backdoor_yes_or_no/jkbvys7/): btchip, Ledger owner & co-founder ...and since it's known that they have key extraction code in their firmware, there's no way to know for sure - FOR SURE - if your seed is safe. People keep making assumptions, and that's fine, but there's no way to know for sure. In my opinion, that means any seed used on a Ledger device has to be considered compromised, or at the very least, possibly compromised. > "You now have an API in your firmware to extract seeds" > [SOURCE](https://youtu.be/M3VjQUcyZSY?t=1243): Rodolfo Novak, discussing Ledger Recover in a video interview with Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier
It could have been parents :( Let's say it was the friend. BTW it could have also been... someone else (just to cover all the possibilities. If it was the friend, you're probably out the cheese. But you could try to trick him into admitting the crime. Watch some police interrogation videos on youtube. Basically the pattern is, you claim to have evidence he did it. You invite hi to confess. If he confesses, no further action will be taken. You are doing this because you care about him as a person, blah blah blah. But if he doesn't confess, you have the sheriff on speed dial ready to take him in. This will ruin his life. Is this worth a few hundred bucks? Blah blah blah. Maybe he cracks. * * only do this if you are ACTUALLY SURE it was the friend, or have a plan b when it turns out it wasn't him.
Why are you so hell bent on people being SURE about it? It's alot of peoples best guess. A best guess doesn't warrant you leveraging your home and going all in. There's this thing called risk if you didn't know. Even in the most guaranteed scenarios.
You're playing with Fire Shorting here. Is the Juice worth the squeeze? How much potential Downside vs Upside? I don't entirely trust this Rally yet, I "FEEL" like we're in for One last NASTY Dip But I'm SURE AS HELL not Betting on it. ​ RIP--- Just RIP... See you on the other side. !remindme 3 months
The point is THERE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SHIT IN PLACE THAT MAKES SURE ALL OF THIS ACTUALLY FUCKING WORKS AND ISN'T JUST PUTTING UP NUMBERS ON A DAMN SCREEN! TOO MANY ASSHOLES WHO COULD ACTUALLY DO ANY REAL DUE DILIGENCE AND SEE ANY OF THIS, EITHER DIDN'T, OR DIDN'T TELL ANYONE! AND NOBODY BOTHERED POINTING OUT WHAT EVERYONE DIDN'T ACTUALLY KNOW EITHER!
They only dropped a minor slice of the charges that were forcing delays on the main ones, but they did not drop the main ones. This title is wildly misleading. The headline sure seems meant to falsely imply that powerful democrats somehow pulled something crooked. The headline SURE SEEMS meant to misled...
So... I think crypto is dumb as rocks but I follow the community out of what I can only describe as morbid interest. Now I work for a bank and while I don't work on fraud per sae, I do monitor what cyber criminals are doing on a daily basis such that we are prepared for any major changes they make to their tactics and targets The two tidbits I would note related to this are first that everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, doesn't matter if they are your mother or a Nobel Prize winning physicist or both, everyone has a scam that they will fall for. You may not have found your scam, I know I haven't, but I know there's one out there that I will fall for. Second people use the term scam more broadly than they should, sometimes to try and cover up a mistake, sometimes because they don't want to admit they were wrong etc. Zelle fraud is a great example. It absolutely happens but a lot of complaints to Zelle are people putting in the wrong account details to send money to and before you can send it, Zelle asks you ARE YOU SURE and people hit yes. Rather than admit they were wrong, a lot of people call it a scam or a fraud when it's not. Now apply that to crypto which is a more complex system, and you are going to get people making mistakes because that's what humans do, but they don't want to admit to that so, scam, fraud, hacked etc I also don't want people to read this and think that scams and fraud don't happen, Proofpoint found an amazing scam targeted at holders of USDT after SVB fell apart at the seams where smart contracts were used to empty the holdings in your wallets. This stuff does happen. Plus remember a Bitcoin Dev fell victim to a hack in the past so just posting info about how easy it is to not get hacked isn't a silver bullet
irrelevant. the bitcoinboys have spoken. taxes are theft, countries shouldn't create their own currency, and ...whatever else foreign interests are trying to get us to believe so we can weaken the US. /s this whole thread's a major eyeroll. shocked that the people who print money allow themselves to print money. how these drips think money is printed without moneyprinters is beyond me. i like bitcoin. i buy bitcoin. but we measure the value of bitcoin in USD for a reason. when btc drops from 66k to 16k, there's a nervous feeling for a reason. it's because everything in life uses the USD. order a pizza, pay for gas, pay your electric bill. none of that is bitcoin -- and it shouldn't be. bitcoin is the savings acct. usd is the chequing. you cash out 200 usd of bitcoin TO usd. and then use usd to pay for all those things. that's how bitcoin works best. big purchases? sure. i'm selling my house and you want to pay me in bitcoin? SURE!!!
There is no crypto wallet account, only private wallet and exchange that is centralized but I understand you. Yes, create an account on some cex. Like Kraken, Binance, Coinbase. Check what your country laws support etc. Buy some USDC. Check the tutorials for that website, also MAKE SURE THAT IT IS SAFE TO USE! Read reviews, Google it, youtube etc. Maybe you want to make a wallet that supports usdc, send it there and then to that desired wallet, but I think that you can do it directly from the cex (exchange account). Make sure to use the right network. Make sure to check the address. Check the price for sending that crypto, if you are using ERC20 you want to check for gas. Ignore people in your DMs!
>’What’s more I am SURE they bought up a huge chunk of the float prior to listing, which they will be selling to their retail customers for an enormous profit. 1. Buy PEPE early once rumour started about its success. 2. Wait for the price to increase more. 3. Start a marketing campaign about listing it on your CEX to increase the price even further. 4. Dump it on your retail customers 5. Double dip and get a lot of cash from those sweet sweet fees. 6. ? 7. Profit
While I don’t own any, or really believe in it, I have had an in-depth conversation with a supporter who was able to actually explain what’s going on, and how the contract works. If every HEXITE was this guy, it would be a top 10 coin. Now, this assumes that he knows what he was talking about. Because I have never looked into the contract deeply. But if he was correct and that is truly is the way it works, it’s not a terrible coin. Yes the profits come from new people putting their money in so you can get yours out, but also from people breaking contracts early. In the end, I am honestly NOT SURE if it’s a ponzi or not. But I’m not locking anything in myself.
Great comment! Just to piggyback on this, I would stress that the whole process is very easy. I put it off for so long thinking the whole idea of setting up a hardware wallet and moving crypto around would be a really complicated and stressful process. The whole thing (including setting it up, sending a test transaction, factory resetting the whole thing and setting it up again to see that my BTC was still there) took maybe an hour, and most of that time was because I was doing everything slowly and carefully to make sure it was right. I reckon if I had to go through the process again now that I am more confident it would barely take half an hour. Just MAKE SURE YOU WRITE DOWN YOUR SEED PHRASE CORRECTLY AND STORE IT SOMEWHERE SAFE! If you lose your hardware wallet or it stops working but have the seed phrase you are fine.
okay so send like 30 cents of matic to that wallet from any source. MAKE SURE TO SEND THE MATIC ON THE POLYGON NETWORK THE SAME WAY YOU DID WITH ETH. this .3 or so matic will be plenty to send your wrapped eth back to whatever exchange your transferred it from (i assume coinbase).
ledger is the safest way to store ur crypto hands down. (BUT MAKE SURE TO GET IT FROM LEDGER THEMSELF) second best would be a software wallet, like: trust wallet,exodus,metamask but the most important step is with any of these is how u store ur passphrase. i would advice u make 2 copys of the passphrase's and store them in 2 difriend spots so a fire / natural event doesn't destroy both. and when setting up new wallets always do a test transaction first, yes u need to pay the 1-10$ fee twice, but it safes u from losing all ur crypto
This is not true. Coinbase has taken a lot of customer's money and not paid them back. r/coinbaseholdingmoney This morning i got a copy of an official letter from the SEC responding to one of the Coinbase customer's that had cryptocurency money taken by Coinbase and not returned. And Coinbase has not fixed the issue. They simply send them through a 'loop' of excuses about 'wait for another customer service rep' to contact you It's pretty clear the SEC is not trying to abuse Coinbase Coinbase just needs to get US based customer service OR go somewhere other than where they are at AND MAKE SURE PEOPLE's money is truly theirs... and no stolen from their account by the exchange with no person to address the issue.... Coinbase is spending money of users they should not be. And there's a long list of people who are missing money as well. I'll be releasing it through 'Crypto Coin Opps,' if they do not refund a rather small ($500) security deposit that was never charged to my account (charge fell off) here soon. Hold on to your seats. Shit's about to get real. And r/Coinbase banned me from their subreddit because they could not vote down my post and I stopped their 'shilling' accounts from hi-jacking my posts. People like r/Kiwip0rn have an exclusive job of downvoting complaints, insulting customers they cant control, etc. I'd challenge anyone to research their profile. Who in life would spend their entire day defending Coinbase naturally? The water well goes deep! my banned post can still be read -- though they tried to delete most everything: [https://np.reddit.com/r/CoinBase/comments/11vffay/dear\_coinbase\_support\_get\_my\_money\_now\_or\_im/](https://np.reddit.com/r/CoinBase/comments/11vffay/dear_coinbase_support_get_my_money_now_or_im/) read the original post here: [https://np.reddit.com/r/coinbaseholdingmoney/comments/11w4hl0/when\_rcoinbase\_cant\_control\_the\_narrative\_on/](https://np.reddit.com/r/coinbaseholdingmoney/comments/11w4hl0/when_rcoinbase_cant_control_the_narrative_on/) I've probably spent $70 on marketing to make my issue VERY VISIBLE to coinbase and put them in a position they will have to pay it back or get exposed on the internet. This should not be like this -- clearly
