2/6 Disclaimer: This is my editing, so there could be some misunderstandings. Anyone who wants to read everything should go to the 'spec' of Paracosm discord. IMHO, Hans's philosophy and motivation is worth sharing widely. Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전7:57 People are more motivated then ever Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:02 the point is that the IF is not going to be there forever - its not meant to having a self sustainable ecosystem is very important for the maturity of the protocol Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:03 No it's not if IF would cease to exist tomorrow - it would be finished by the people working for the IF anyway I am 100% sure and if i would have to do it alone ... Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:05 we can all do it together - and we are actually doing it already hornet and goshimmer have VERY close ties they are really good friends and very capable coders its an honor to work with them Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:06 [when do you reckon the shift to binary will take place?] its being merged in goshimmer tomorrow :smile: Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:14 [about Multiverse] the last statements of popov was that it "might work" he still has some concerns i guess he still tends to think the chances of it not working as bigger than the chances of it working I am 100% sure it works - but maybe its on me to prove that with a fully functional prototype. Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:17 My goal is to show a prototype being able to process 10 million tps by the mid of this year - we will see if I can pull this off maybe time will be rare, considering the parallel work on coordicide maybe I should aim for end of 2020 instead Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:19 of course it includes sharding that whole point of IOTA is sharding and a completely new form of sharding Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:19 [why 10m TPS?] its just a random number some kind of goal post so you can process the entirety of bitcoins history in 1minute and 30 seconds? would be a nice thing Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:21 coordicide and multiverse would essentially use the same sharding principles I hope that we can share more on that soon Oh its quite concrete we are starting to write math papers about it already Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:23 FPC is perfectly fine for sharding you have to forget the discrete sharding world of blockchains where you just make n copies of the same thing its very different Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:30 I would LOVE to share that with you but maybe just wait a but longer - we will be more open about this pretty soon let's just say that we still have some aces in our sleeves Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:49 nope I am completely new in crypto but I am pretty sure that some people might "know me from before" if they would know what I did before Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전8:57 dude the IF has reached a stage where it would survive without anbybody I could drop dead tomorrow and the IF would continue, same goes for David or anybody else Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:00 all the corporates and everything ... it might not be fully reflected in the price yet but IOTA has a really really bright future Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:01 I think we are starting to see a pretty bullish sentiment around IOTA lately I only hope that its due to our increased transparency with a clear roadmap and everyhting, and not just some random fluke in the prices It would just feel much more "rewarding" to be a consequence of our efforts :joy: Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:05 i am buying more IOTA every month : was very happy about the low prices but I can understand that if you just "have to believe" and have no insight about the actual progress, then these prices can feel more concerning than a "bargain" Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:13 Do you really expect a guy working on IOTA to not be bullish about the tech and everything? I am not in IOTA for the moneyzzz Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:18 if you are asking for investment advice, then I am most probably the worst person to ask as my trades in crypto have always been horrible Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:20 I didn't have the chance to be around in the ICO days so I need to take what's left Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:27 I don't know man - everybody that I know is not willing to sell Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:35 Yassin is the proof that "reputation" is worth something A man of honor - my deepest respect to you man People who stick to their word and can be trusted are sadly a rare thing in today's world Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:39 I anyway think that we have way too much tribalism in crypto people should really stop praising "people and projects" and instead start to praise ideas and concepts Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:43 I mean I get the whole concept of having a single currency and shit, but if the tech is bad? I mean this is the first time in the history of humans that we can "design" the very foundation of our social and economical layer why would we not go for the best available tech? bitcoin was "a breakthrough" when it was released and it helped to kickstart a whole field of research but its clearly not the best possible solution Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:47 ultimately the best tech will win just look at bitcoins dominance its fading long term sure it was time for a correction from the 2017 run of alts Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:47 but the overall trend is pretty clear bitcoins days are numbered Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:54 maybe I can leak one thing about IOTA's sharding solution without giving away too much: Every single node can individually decide how much data it wants to process - so you can have very very resource-constrained nodes like sensors and stuff in the same network as nodes with hundreds of cores and they will be able to work together seamlessly there will essentially be no "minimum hardware requirements" for a node (of course you have "some" requirements to even be able to run some kind of logic) Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:56 We are on the forefront of research when it comes to VDF's but its not really related VDFs would maybe be a way to replace PoW in the future as a rate control mechanism Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전9:58 you don't need big nodes you can be as big as you want to be but naturally some nodes will have more power than others Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:01 possible - the whole mana system is based on "reputation", if you run a reliable cluster of nodes that people are willing to use, then you can earn mana and since mana decides how many transactions you can issue, you can of course "allow others to use your resources" for money so operating a reliable node cluster could be sth that people might do "for a living" in the future maybe it would be best to build up a reputation already today Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:03 if you have funds in the network, then you will generate more than enough mana to have enough "shares" in the network to use it for free but if anybody wants to just piggyback on the network without holding tokens, then he might have to pay a "fee" Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:05 if you want to send a lot of data transactions, then you better have some tokens I mean its just fair, right? you don't have any stake in the network but you wanna use it? then pay for it but people who have funds in the network can use it for free Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:07 i think ultimately the community will provide a plugin for the nodes, where you can "automatically" rent your excess reputation for some income Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:08 [what would the income be ?] tokens IOTA Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:09 by the people who want to use the network more than what their token holding would allow them to so they rent "mana" from the people who have it Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:10 the internet took off when flat-rate emerged and prices became predictable the same is true for crypto Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:11 thats why companies like IOTA so much ... it creates a platform that has "predictable" prices any mining based crypto will never be able to offer the same Beeing feeless is not just a "funny feature", its the key to mass adoption Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:14 If I run a node and have funds in the network, then why would I pay anybody anything? I am supporting the network already by using it Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:16 Yeah we are using "mana 2" now which is also the one that is implemented in the goshimmer mana package the formulas are going to change a bit tho we had like 16 different versions of mana with all very different implications on game theory and code Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:18 but serguei is the expert when it comes to game theory and we are pretty confident that we have chosen the correct survivor Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:19 [The mana implementation does seem like the slipperiest slope] it uses a few economic theories from the early 20th century (from silvio gesell) by having smth like a "demurrage function" so the rich dont get richer its software - if any design decision turns out to be problematic, you patch it Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:20 [So it’s hard to maintain a high mana] its not like you have to live with it for thousands of years like in our current FIAT system if you make it right from the start, the rich will never become that powerful that they could even dare to fork Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:22 you are "RENTING" out your excess resources that doesn't mean that you will broadcast everything unseen If somebody tries to use your node to perform an attack you will just ignore it of course you might "lose the fees" that they would be willing to pay you to perform this attack, but ultimately you will have to decide what is more valuable to you the few cents of IOTA you earn or your "reputation / mana" Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:25 the nodes will perform all of the sanity checks, so they don't "accidently" take part in an attack of course the point is that its a voting system based on mana if I use your node to "issue a transaction", then I maybe pay you for issuing this tx but your "opinion on that tx" is independent of that Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:29 actually I even think that the whole coordicide principles especially in connection with the sharding are very much in line with cfb's initial vision - and I am actually a bit sad that he never really dared to honestly look into them Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:29 I was even thinking about "naming" the multiverse "cfbs vision" once maybe its more (pauls's vision) than cfbs vision paul handy was one of the other early developers of IOTA btw. and a very very smart person I have to say a lot of the ideas that we are currently pursuing go back to his line of thinking Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:32 the infamous "ontology principles" the ultimate goal is to be able to run "anything" on the tangle - not just value transfers but literally anything, event remotely related to DLT's I envision IOTA being a general purpose DLT platform pretty much like TCP/IP was for the internet Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:36 I introduced "broadcasts" a few days ago as a new concept that is the equivalent of UDP messages Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:49 I think that one of the things where cfb and me disagree regarding the "vision of IOTA" is that he think thats we should "finalize" the protocol as soon as possible (or "set it in stone" as he likes to call it), so hardware manufacturer can start to build hardware, whereas I think that it makes much more sense for it to be something like an "open evolving standard" that is so flexible that you can literally build whatever the fuck you want based on this protocol. The internet wouldn't have been the internet, if it would have "just" been for sending scientific messages between researchers. I can not anticipate and know what humans might do with DLT in the future, so limiting myself to "only value transfers" is IMHO the wrong decision. for something to be successful, it needs to be able to "model" everything that could possibly exist Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:51 IOTA will be able to run "anything" on top of it - even "virtual instances of other cryptocurrencies" and its not going to be some quirky slow emulation - it would most probably even be faster and more reliable than when being implemented without it Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:52 similar to "INTEL inside" you will most probably see sth like "Tangle inside" soon Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:54 "any application" running on top of the tangle (MAM, DID, Qubic, Matrix ... you name them) would ALWAYS have to be able to process IOTA value transfers THAT's what will give the token a value Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:55 if everybody can already "speak the same language" anyway, then people will also use that language to communicate which means that people will use the IOTA token to transfer value so we don't need to "force ourselves" on others - they will come by themselves because its the only thing that makes sense Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전10:57 [so Hans, $10 EOY still ?] if btc stays where it is? hard to achieve i'd say most probably not it always takes some time for people to "wake up" dunno maybe it goes fast most weak hands are gone in IOTA Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:00 But seriously guys ... the price of course is interesting but if we are able to pull this off, then this will be the start of a new form of society it will affect everything the way we interact .... even the way we behave towards each other I am not even sure if you need to be "rich" in that kind of society Star trek sounds like a nice vision Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:20 [once IOTA is completely implemented, its gonna be a matter of energy consumption optimization race I guess?] ultimately, yes whatever crypto is going to be the "cheapest" one to "operate" will win Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:22 BUT that is at the same time "expressive" enough to not have "niches" for weird competitors, that claim to be even a "little bit better" in one of the aspects it needs to be the best possible solution that humans are most probably able to come up with Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:23 if even the smallest something can be improved, then it should become part of the core rather than a competing project not having miners and being able to "upgrade" whenever it is necessary, is what will give IOTA power not setting stuff in stone today Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:29 I guess what fascinates me the most about IOTA is that people have a different kind of philosophy - in crypto people are usually sharing the mindset of "let's destroy the banks ... or .... the FED ... or whoever they consider to be their enemy IOTA for me is not so much about "destroying somebody else" rather than "creating something new" Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:30 But the "mindset and motivation" makes all the difference And I feel like large parts of the community "understand and share" that vision Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:34 there are plenty of "problems" where DLT is not the right answer but there are most probably also quite a few that we haven't even thought about, yet that go way beyond just "finance" Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:38 [Has IF any plans for anonymous transactions Hans?] it's current not our main point of research but I would say ultimately yes the fact thats its feeless make "mixing" funds a very feasible solution But even on top of that (like zero knowledge proofs and stuff) If there is a use case, then you should be able to do it with IOTA. that's what I mean with "general purpose DLT" platform whatever is possible should be doable with the protocol - not "just" IoT value transfers Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:42 everything you could most probably think of the same way as TCP/IP allows you to play computer games, send emails, or watch streams Hans Moog [IF]어제 오전11:48 tomorrow I start merging the first ledger-related stuff into the development branch from the outside it will most probably look like any other day : but starting to work on the "final version" which is supposed to be ready end of Q1 is a big milestone for us 2 months left Hans Moog [IF]어제 오후12:04 100% agree - let's finish this shit! we have "talked" for quite a while - the coming months, we will have to show what we "have"
Got this weird DM on reddit idk what this guy is up to have any of you ever heard of this https://tradeoptiongains.com Site? u/mikerobin25 Mikerobin2501:52 AM Hello there IDEKMyUsername09:34 AM Howdy Mikerobin2509:47 AM How's it going? IDEKMyUsername12:13 PM Not bad. What's up Mikerobin2512:36 PM I'm doing quite alright, How about you? IDEKMyUsername12:53 PM Not bad Mikerobin2501:39 PM Well, I don't mean to intrude but are you familiar with the term "cryptocurrency", Bitcoin to be precise? IDEKMyUsername03:10 PM Yes Aye Mikerobin2503:25 PM Well, I'm at the moment engaging in an outreach aimed at expanding the clientele of my platform and enlightening the populace on the monetary potential of bitcoin trading and mining. Would you be interested in this? IDEKMyUsername03:26 PM Uh yeah sure I can look into it. What does it include? Mikerobin2503:28 PM Are you familiar with the term "Bitcoin trading"? IDEKMyUsername03:29 PM Yeah somewhat Like selling and buying it? Mikerobin2503:33 PM Well, Bitcoin trading is the process of making profits by buying Bitcoin at a low cost and selling it when the price goes up, This method is referred to as Dollar Cost Averaging(DCA). The Bitcoin trade is volatile, and price move by a significant margin. This activity is done on trading platforms. Are you following? IDEKMyUsername04:07 PM Yep gotcha so far Sorry had to pickup a call Mikerobin2506:51 PM No problem mate. Every platform has an investment procedure and ROI method. Unlike other platforms that engage in day trading (profiting from the volatility of bitcoin which is inefficient), My platform is registered with S9 ant miners that mine the bitcoin you invest to increase exponentially and that’s how you earn profits. Have you heard of the term "Bitcoin mining"? IDEKMyUsername06:52 PM Yes I have Mikerobin2506:57 PM Good. For clarification, Bitcoin mining primarily involves generating and earning off the confirmation of blocks of transaction on the network such as the Blockchain network. This is made possible with the use of special and sophisticated devices called the Bit main devices, Such as the AntMiner S9 and ASIC hardware. These devices are extremely expensive to maintain and require a lot of electricity generation and technical expertise which makes it rarely an option for private individuals who are interested in going into Bitcoin mining. But my platform has been able to provide for this disability. Are you following? IDEKMyUsername06:57 PM I feel ya Yes Mikerobin2507:01 PM Moving on, My platform operates a full S9 Antminer farm. The Antminer s9 has a hash rate of 12.93TH/s which is -+ 7%, Which could generate a ROI of 0.5 BTC within an investment period depending on the investment capital. Note: ROI stands for return of investment while hash rates a measure of how many times the network can attempt to complete this puzzle every second. This means that hash rate is a good indicator of the Bitcoin network's health. Do i still have your attention? IDEKMyUsername07:02 PM Yes Mikerobin2507:05 PM Finally, All investments are made and monitored by the client (you) on the platform's website as you earn profits daily and you can contact me a "Broker" on the platform whenever you need assistance or more information. https://tradeoptiongains.com IDEKMyUsername07:05 PM Hm U have a history of wise investments? I mean don't really know you so not like your a "professional" of any means Mikerobin2507:06 PM Certainly We've been running for a span of 4 years now with optimum services provided IDEKMyUsername07:38 PM oh wow gimmie some more deets? how much money would I expect if i put a quick g bar in? IDEKMyUsername07:53 PM hm? Mikerobin2507:54 PM An investment of $1000 amounts up to the standard ROI stated above which is 50% of 1 bitcoin. Apologies for the late reply, Was attending to a client of mine. IDEKMyUsername07:55 PM so invest of about $1000 would give ruffly 5? nah ur good fam like how I go about that tho u know cause isn't bitcoin like kind of high right now? Mikerobin2507:57 PM Yeah though it would have been more profitable if you had started earlier when it was cheaper but you should be expecting more returns due to the halving coming up. https://www.bitcoinblockhalf.com/ IDEKMyUsername07:58 PM how high you think its going to get? Mikerobin2507:59 PM Its a highly speculative asset but from my experience and following it's previous halving events, Probably 15-18k. IDEKMyUsername08:01 PM oh jeez thats like as big as the big boom right? how you know its gonna do that? and what if it doesn't lol? do I just l;ose it all Mikerobin2508:05 PM Exactly. If it doesn't, It would remain at its breaking point of 9k or peak point of 10k but i highly doubt it doesn't pump(rise) based on past halving events. You can simply get started by creating your personal account on the platform by which you can start by purchasing bitcoin and you can do this by clicking on the "Register" icon to get started. IDEKMyUsername08:05 PM hmmm idk Kinda need some more security u know what I mean? Mikerobin2508:08 PM I understand. Loses are only made when you sell off, You money remains intact whether it rises or falls as long as you don't sell but your ROI is fully attained on your account on the platform. IDEKMyUsername08:09 PM o Mikerobin2508:10 PM Indeed Mikerobin2508:20 PM Any more questions? IDEKMyUsername08:20 PM uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no Mikerobin2508:22 PM Okay then, I'm available here if you're interested and need my assistance Enjoy the rest of your day. IDEKMyUsername08:25 PM o ok Yesterday Mikerobin2501:48 PM https://www.fxstreet.com/cryptocurrencies/news/breaking-bitcoin-price-takes-down-9-000-as-10-000-beckons-202004300334 https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/bitcoin-price-gold-oil-2020-best-performing-assets-a9492641.html IDEKMyUsername01:51 PM O I bought it Mikerobin2501:51 PM Pardon? IDEKMyUsername01:52 PM I bought one Mikerobin2501:52 PM On what platform? IDEKMyUsername01:54 PM I'm idk the one u sent me Um* Mikerobin2501:55 PM Really? When did you do this and why wasn't i informed? Today IDEKMyUsername10:19 AM Oh like last last night I thought it was expected U sent me the link and everything ;( Mikerobin2510:22 AM You would have informed me so i can enlighten you more on the procedure. Are you aware that it's a mining platform and you earn profits as an investor? IDEKMyUsername10:23 AM Yah so what would profit be ya reckon? For let's say $1000 over liek a year Mikerobin2510:24 AM What name did you use in registering the account? IDEKMyUsername10:24 AM Uh I'd have to look it up But how much profit did u say it would be about? Mikerobin2510:27 AM 0.5 BTC a month depending on your investment capital that is, I would need the name of your account to register it under my personal database so i can provide you with information and assistance when needed. IDEKMyUsername10:28 AM O damn that's some big bucks right there .5 btc like what 4g? 4 times 11 that's $44,000 a month Mikerobin2510:30 AM How much did you invest and what is the name of your account? Your profit is calculated in respect of your investment capital IDEKMyUsername10:31 AM Like 11grand Mikerobin2510:31 AM And the name? IDEKMyUsername10:31 AM Mmmm How do I find it? Is there a way on the site Mikerobin2510:31 AM What name did you use in creating the account? Didn't you register? IDEKMyUsername10:32 AM Oh like my irl name I thought u meant like a username Mikerobin2510:32 AM Username is what i mean IDEKMyUsername10:33 AM It's gonna be under Jeffery Henderson Jeffery L. Henderson Mikerobin2510:35 AM Okay, Give me a second to record it and ascertain your expected profit. IDEKMyUsername10:35 AM Sick Did u find my account? Mikerobin2510:41 AM I can't find your records on the platform, Maybe a technical difficulty. Could you please sign in and send me a screenshot of your funds deposited through discord please? IDEKMyUsername10:41 AM So tell me mike Where's the cash? Mikerobin2510:41 AM Pardon? IDEKMyUsername10:41 AM You lost it, oh you misplaced it. Now mike you know I don't like to be lied to right? Mikerobin2510:43 AM Since i can't find your account on the platform, I guess that's the ending of our conversation. Good day. IDEKMyUsername10:43 AM So why THE FUCK ARE YOU LIEING TO ME Mikerobin2510:44 AM Prove that you have an account on the platform by sending a screenshot IDEKMyUsername10:44 AM I cannot I did it on Computer Mikerobin2510:45 AM The sign in through your phone, Do i seem like a fool to you? I have a lot of clients to attend to and i don't have time for games IDEKMyUsername10:45 AM I ain't the I one that took another man's money and now can't find it You don't have other clients Let's not play games here How do I get my money out of this depreciating asset? You better help me get my money out of this or were going to have a major issue Mike... IDEKMyUsername11:16 AM U serious rn bro? Ur gonna scam me out of my 💰 ? A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy,. But suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. and you'll know the debt is paid IDEKMyUsername08:01 PM Br You still my 11 grand Stole What's your name Tell me Or I'll find you
You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments. Some great introductions for new users are My first bitcoin, Bitcoin explained and ELI5 Bitcoin. Also, the following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Limited Supply - There will only ever be 21,000,000 bitcoins created and they are issued in a predictable fashion, you can view the inflation schedule here. Once they are all issued Bitcoin will be truly deflationary. The halving countdown can be found here.
Open source - Bitcoin code is fully auditable. You can read the source code yourself here.
Accountable - The public ledger is transparent, all transactions are seen by everyone.
Decentralized - Bitcoin is globally distributed across thousands of nodes with no single point of failure and as such can't be shut down similar to how Bittorrent works.
Censorship resistant - No one can prevent you from interacting with the bitcoin network and no one can censor, alter or block transactions that they disagree with, see Operation Chokepoint.
Push system - There are no chargebacks in bitcoin because only the person who owns the address where the bitcoins reside has the authority to move them.
Low fee scaling - On chain transaction fees depend on network demand and how much priority you wish to assign to the transaction. Most wallets calculate on chain fees automatically but you can view current fees here. On chain fees have risen recently due to network demand however instant micropayments are on the way via the Lightning Network, a second layer scaling solution currently rolling out on the Bitcoin mainnet. You can even run a node on a Raspberry Pi :)
Borderless - No country can stop it from going in/out, even in areas currently unserved by traditional banking as the ledger is globally distributed.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage. Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".
Securing your bitcoins
With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
If you prefer to "Be your own bank" and have direct control over your coins without having to use a trusted third party, there are many software wallet options here. If you want easy and secure storage without having to learn computer security best practices, then a hardware wallet such as the Trezor or Ledger is recommended. A more advanced option is to secure them yourself using paper wallets generated offline. Some popular mobile and desktop wallet options are listed below and most are cross platform.
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.
If you prefer to let third party "Bitcoin banks" manage your coins, try Gemini but be aware you may not be in control of your private keys in which case you would have to ask permission to access your funds and be exposed to third party risk.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email! 2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.
Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The crew at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out. If you want to contribute to the bitcoin network by hosting the blockchain and propagating transactions you can run a full node using this setup guide. Bitseed is an easy option for getting set up. You can view the global node distribution here.
Just like any other form of money, you can also earn bitcoins by being paid to do a job.
You can also earn bitcoins by participating as a market maker on JoinMarket by allowing users to perform CoinJoin transactions with your bitcoins for a small fee (requires you to already have some bitcoins)
The following is a short list of ongoing projects that might be worth taking a look at if you are interested in current development in the bitcoin space.
One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
1,000 per bitcoin
SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
1,000,000 per bitcoin
SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
1,000,000 per bitcoin
Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
100,000,000 per bitcoin
Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

Nexus Business Development Q&A with Alex El-Nemer 30 August 2019
alexelmo [3:01 PM] Hey @here Ill be around for the next hour or so to answer any questions you have about the UK Embassy and Business development. Alot of people have already sent questions privately so I will answer those first as I imagine many will be similar to others. Fire away! belgianboy [3:02 PM] Oke Alex that would be nice David Walliams [3:02 PM] How are you Alex? alexelmo [3:03 PM] Very well thanks @David Walliams You? David Walliams [3:03 PM] Good thank you. How’s it be going on the business development side? alexelmo [3:04 PM] Very well. We've been working hard and its all starting to come together Ok, heres the first question someone asked and my response Q1 - What's the typical size of use cases that you talk to - startup/small/medium/large? A1 - Over the past year we have talked to a large variety of businesses. From some of the largest businesses in the world, to companies looking to start a new business exclusively building on our blockchain technology: Start ups: Researching which platform to build their new business on (a big decision). The Nexus APIs help here, they differentiate us from blockchains in which a specific coding language needs to be learnt (E.g. Ethereum’s Solidarity). SMEs: looking into blockchain to see if it can provide operation efficiencies to suit their existing systems Large: Large Fortune 500 companies - wishing to explore blockchain in a very specific area, or Proof of Concept / pilot deployments. (edited) Q2 - Are you seeing more inquiries/leads/interest from one size category vs another? A2 - Not particularly, we talk to as many interesting companies as possible and get a good reception across the board. Most of the companies which we have had discussions with are medium to large sized businesses, as they tend to have a greater capacity to explore innovative technologies such as blockchain. (edited) CaptainMAD [3:07 PM] Hi Alex, do Nexus have anything in the pipeline in regards to advertising (besides social media) once main net goes live? David Walliams [3:08 PM] wow new business who want to build on nexus exclusively sounds very cool alexelmo [3:10 PM] @CaptainMAD Social media will drive a large amount og our outreach. However we are also reaching our to our networks in the media to promote the tritium update and its benefit to the wider blockchain space. We are also exploring PR agency options (edited) David Walliams [3:10 PM] is nexus project still engaged with UK pr firm? I think you mentioned them long ago Márcio [3:11 PM] @alexelmo Could you tell us in quantitative terms how many projects currently intend to use NXS both publicly and privately? CaptainMAD [3:12 PM] @alexelmo Thanks alexelmo [3:13 PM] Q3 - What is a pitch deck? What format do you use? What sort of things are included in yours? A3 - Our first meeting will typically be a presentation, which takes place via Google Hangouts and Slides. The initial Nexus intro presentation discusses the following characteristics of Nexus: speed, scalability, LISP, API integration, digital currency element, security. These are discussed in comparison to the other major enterprise providers: Hyperledger, Ethereum, Quorum etc… Márcio [3:14 PM] @alexelmo In terms of the timeline, when will we actually start to have something built on NXS? How is the case with SoundVaudt? Is this our biggest and most important business case yet? alexelmo [3:19 PM] @Márcio Unfortunately we cannot discuss any potential deals, as it could be considered to be done with the intent to affect the price of NXS. If and when a use case is made public via a press release, then we will be able to discuss in detail with you all - assuming our contract with the use case permits. Márcio [3:19 PM] ok, thanks belgianboy [3:24 PM] How many nda's? How many compagnies talking with? Wich sector you focus thé most on? Wich sector asks Nexus thé most for help with thé blockchain. What are thé internal targets for business development? What's your personal best experience while doing this? Is there much interest? While Nexus is still unknow, do compagnies know it? And know what thé 3dc can do and everything that is shown in thé zoomcalls? How do you see thé Future for Nexus and its business development progress? alexelmo [3:26 PM] @Dawca_Mocy could you clarify the question a little? @Márcio The possibility to build anything on live code, until now, has been limited by the main net activation. Currently Dino has built a number of demos in test net to showcase the potential of the Nexus blockchain use cases. With regards to SoundVault, we still have a great working relationship with them, and continue to explore blockchain applications within the music industry. Following the release of the main net, businesses will have the opportunity to build on Nexus, and check out the live running code. (edited) David Walliams [3:29 PM] I noticed there is a student focused use case demo - did the business development side reach out to any universities about the nexus project? alexelmo [3:37 PM] Q4 - How many nda's? How many companies talking with? Which sector you focus the most on? Which sector asks Nexus the most for help with the blockchain. A4 - The first meeting is an introduction meeting, telling them about Nexus and see if there is interest from the other side. If there is interest, a follow up meeting will be arranged - for this follow up we typically get an NDA signed prior to the meeting. This is to protect the business’ idea, and also any of their sensitive information about say how their internal systems operate and also that they are looking into blockchain. This NDA essentially means that Nexus cannot state in any medium, the name of the firm, or provide any detailed information on their business practices or details of the use case which they are exploring with us, to any other party. It also protects Nexus - we provide details on the 3DC for example, which is sensitive information which we do not want being shared with other blockchain providers. As of today, we have signed approximately 50 NDAs with prospective businesses. Essentially this means that we have had a second/third meeting with 50+ different organisations. These organisations are typically based in either the UK or the US, with a few dotted around Europe. To provide a brief overview of the sectors in order of most frequently occurring: Supply chain/logistics tracking, music and IP, consulting, finance, education, insurance and ad-hock. David Walliams [3:39 PM] wow that's like 50 days worth of twitter announcements if they all work out :crossed_fingers: ej [3:44 PM] This is all very exciting news belgianboy [3:44 PM] What is ad-hock? alexelmo [2 hours ago] those not in that list belgianboy [2 hours ago] Ok thanks! David Walliams [3:45 PM] any universities alex? alexelmo [2 hours ago] There have been conversations in the education space (as per Q4) (edited) belgianboy [3:46 PM] Are those smalle compagnies or multi billion ones? alexelmo [2 hours ago] See above Question 1 belgianboy [2 hours ago] Ok alexelmo [3:47 PM] Q5 - Is there much interest in Nexus? While Nexus is still unknown, do companies know it? And know what the 3dc can do and everything that is shown in the zoomcalls? A5 - Yes, there is a great interest from those who truly understand blockchain technology. Nexus is still growing in terms of its recognition, but we do see ourselves as a respected player within the enterprise space, much of this has come through positive word of mouth and Blockchain Working Group events here in the UK in which the major players have learned about us and heard of our unique features. We are building a strong reputation in the business community which is a very positive sign. With regards to the 3DC - the technology is far beyond anything else we have come across, and many businesses agree with this statement. We can happily report that senior tech employees (CTOs) at large companies, have been greatly impressed with the quality and complex depth of Nexus’ technology. ej [3:51 PM] Thanks for all this, Alex ej [3:52 PM] Excellent work paulscreen [3:52 PM] Yup this is gold!! Kendal Cormany [3:52 PM] Good job alexelmo [3:53 PM] Q6 - What does an initial meeting typically go like? Do you pitch Nexus and its features first, or do you start by learning what the use case is trying to achieve and then talk about how Nexus can fit that? A6 - The style of the first meeting really depends on the individual(s) whom the meeting is with and our prior knowledge of the company itself. If our contact at the organisation is a business focused individual (which is almost always the case given that our contacts are in this area) then we will discuss the following:
Our features - speed, scalability, LISP, API integration, digital currency element, security. These are discussed in comparison to the other major enterprise providers: Hyperledger, Ethereum, Quorum etc…
How they could best utilise the technology to benefit their business as a whole (improved speed, transparency, efficiency, fraud reduction, regulatory reporting).
Following the above topics, a follow up meeting is arranged. A technical employee from the other company will usually attend this. Typically Colin or Dino will attend the meeting to discuss the Nexus technicals in much greater detail. The following topics are discussed:
Technical comparisons with other blockchains (Why Nexus Contacts > normal Smart Contracts)
How to integrate with existing systems (Nexus API > Complex Coding languages)
Discussions around the best way to possibly start with the use case (run in parallel to existing systems, private vs public blockchain)
Complex technical questions
If our contact at the business is technical (CTO for example) then Colin or Dino will typically attend the first meeting, alongside Myself or Brian, and this intro meeting will be more technically focused. In essence we adapt to whom the meeting is with. Following meetings will be tailored to their specific company / requirements. We do like to be as tailored as possible early on though, to differentiate from the other providers whom generally look to just sell a fixed product. (edited) pdogg147 [3:53 PM] Yes thanks for providing some details @alexelmo alexelmo [3:55 PM] Q7 - What about subsequent meetings? Do you have a standard pitch presentation or are they tailored for different industries? A7 - Follow up meetings depend on how the potential client wishes to progress. It could be in regards to any of the following:
Follow up questions in regards to why Nexus over other providers (more in general questions or in regards to their specific solution)
Further use case development discussion - best way to develop the use case to maximise associated benefits
Disclosure of their internal systems and what they wish their use case to achieve for this business. An NDA is typically signed prior to the second/third meeting, as sensitive information such as this is disclosed, and needs to be protected.
A key point with Nexus that separates us from the larger players is that with us, we have the capability to tailor everything (right down to the Network Layer). Our meetings reflect this flexibility, so we never try and sell a set product. We will discuss with the business, see what they would like, and see how we can help. alexelmo [4:01 PM] Q8 - Are use cases going to be publicly announced and if so when? A8 - If and when perspective use cases / partnerships have been finalised, and the deal allows public announcement, then we will 100% be releasing this as public information. This is our goal for all use cases, but it is down to the business if, when and how they release this information. We must respect that different businesses have different strategies and timelines. (edited) Q9 - Do you do demo's of the Nexus blockchain in action? If so, who from the organisation does these? A9 - Yes we do sometimes show demos of our Blockchain in action. As Dino has built the Demos he is typically the team member who demonstrates a use case in action (how a supply chain would work on Nexus). Colin has done some speed based demos (showing the speed of the Nexus Blockchain in terms of reads and writes per second). ej [4:05 PM] I am assuming you're not at liberty to disclose if any new usecases/partnerships were indeed finalized due to the reasons previously mentioned. alexelmo [1 hour ago] Unfortunately we cant currently. ej [4:06 PM] Understood And thank you Dawca_Mocy [4:08 PM] @alexelmo How will all this affect the price of nxs? Are we going down all the time? When will nxs be noticed? Can you tell something about investors whose portfolios are smaller by 95% today? alexelmo [1 hour ago] Please see question 9 David Walliams [4:10 PM] I don't think he have crystal ball dawca alexelmo [4:11 PM] Unfortunately not @David Walliams......that would be helpful though! :joy: Dawca_Mocy [4:16 PM] @alexelmo Crystal ball. Hehe. Ok. Therefore, what price do you expect for nxs at the end of the year? I mean your opinion. alexelmo [4:16 PM] Q10 - Please discuss where we are in the process of letting NXS be purchased with fiat (if that is even being worked on) and the hopes of finally decoupling from BTC? A10 - This is certainly a goal, although the main focus for us has been primarily on blockchain use cases recently. The reason for this focus on use cases is that as our adoption improves, we expect that our dependence on Bitcoin will reduce. Generally it is the top ranked coins which are listed with liquid fiat pairs. As the adoption of the Nexus blockchain improves, we hope to increase up the ranks, and look to list with these fiat based exchanges. Currently, BC Bitcoin in the UK has the ability to exchange NXS with a number of fiat currencies and other cryptocurrencies. David Walliams [4:19 PM] anymore news on binance US? (edited) alexelmo [4:22 PM] Q11 - Are we going to be listed on BinanceUS? A11 - I have been in conversations with Binance for a while regarding the developments at BinanceUS. We have worked hard to ensure we meet the requirements for a BinanceUS listing Unfortunately a key requirement that we may fall short on is our trading volume. We expect that only the very highest volume coins will be initially listed as part of the BinanceUS launch. We will keep you informed as this develops. Q12 - How many companies are currently waiting for something specific before getting their feet wet? A12 - The main thing we have been asked for by businesses over the past few months has been in regards to the Tritium main net release. Some of our businesses are waiting for the network to be live before progressing any further, so we are very excited for our potential use cases to see the release and have a deep dive into the live running code soon. We would like to thank @dino for making blockchain demos in the private testnet environment which have really helped given the main net deployment release date has been delayed over the past few months. B l a c k J a c k [4:33 PM] What are some of the other industries we have looked to disrupt, but for which NDAs have not been signed or been followed up on? alexelmo [4:38 PM] Q13 - Have there been cases where Nexus has been preferred to other enterprise-focused blockchains such as Hyperledger, Corda, Ethereum? A13 - In many cases, companies we have talked to have been greatly impressed with Nexus’ technology. Yes, in almost all cases the prospective client has said our technology is superior to that of the major providers, a feat which we are extremely proud of. alexelmo [4:46 PM] Q14 - Can we do anything to help with enterprise efforts? A14 - We always welcome support and input from the community in regards to our business development efforts. I have had messages from a number of community members who have told us about companies looking into blockchain and have also had calls with individuals to discuss how it would be best to approach your personal contacts. Feel free to reach out to me if you think you have a potential business in mind that would be a good fit, I’d be more than happy to jump on a call to discuss. Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone you know we are here to help if needed. I think I've covered all the messages that have been sent to me privately and on here so Im going to call it a night. Thanks for your time guys.

Hello OnePageX! The Most Rapid And User-Friendly Exchange Ever.
Crypto ecosystem has been booming since Bitcoin’s arrival in 2009, today we have a developed market, and a technology which has endured a decade of intensive testing. Many pessimists stated that Blockchain Technology will not be able to withstand the hardships of the market, but even after crypto prices crashing on 2018 the number of new crypto ventures has increased tremendously. In presence of this vibrant environment, there is no surprise that the competition between different services providers in the crypto ecosystem is increasing by the day, therefore polishing the characteristics of each service and improving the user experience they provide. Since we have a vast diversity of cryptocurrencies (at the time of writing this article there are +2100 different cryptos listed on coinmarketcap), the core service of the crypto sphere is freely exchanging between the huge number of cryptos that exist today. Swapping between different cryptos should be as easy as loading a new tab in your web browser and as secure as transferring your funds in a traditional bank. Many have tried to provide a service that doesn’t fall short of the expectations of crypto investors, but most of then have failed badly. Current exchanges services lack of three vital characteristics that prevent them from fully satisfying its users: First, the many steps and the personal information needed to fill a Know Your Customer (a.k.a. KYC) verification badly harms users privacy and trading user experience. Second, most exchanges have a limited portfolio of cryptocurrencies for users to chose from. When you take a look at how many interesting and promising crypto-related projects are created, the lack of intuitive and easy to use platforms for users to readily get the tokens from such potential successful projects hinders the development of the crypto ecosystem. Third, in order to outpace the current centralized system we need to offer a more user-friendly crypto-platform for users to readily jump in. Since crypto ecosystem are fairly complex, nontech-savvy users have struggled to get smooth experiences and are quickly discouraged to onboard this awesome new opportunity that crypto has provided to us all. The gigantic number of possibilities when choosing among the hundreds of different cryptos for investing opportunities. But, multiple altcoins creates a burden that we all have been bearing for many years. Since many altcoins strived to offer a better set of features for users, each one of them took a different approach to the technical elements when they created their platforms. This diversity created a wider offer of unique characteristics on each new crypto, but interoperability and cross-chain integration were sacrificed creating hundreds of isolated crypto ecosystems. Thereafter, we have been forced to rely on third parties (a.k.a. exchanges) to handle our trades between different cryptocurrencies. Besides, exchanges have requested personal information from users, thus limiting users privacy. Moreover, they have been attack-vectors for continuous hacking and fund theft. Exchanges have suffered loses by 980,000 BTC, this is around $5 billion at current prices. How can we expect crypto to go mainstream if these weaknesses on the overall of the crypto ecosystem are still unaddressed? The fear to lose have been always greater than the joy for gains. Until a more reliable system is created cryptos will be constrained to a bunch of chilled tech-savvy enthusiasts that know how to handle the hardships that newbies suffer when onboarding into the crypto ecosystem. A solution for a private, user-friendly, and reliable exchange mechanism is required, a platform that allows users to enjoy all the privacy, simplicity, and security that current monetary system offers. OnePageX is creating such a platform and it is going to change for the better the way we exchange our cryptos. OnePageX knows better! They have a platform that works just in one page, hence its name One Page Exchange (OnePageX). OnePageX does not require users to sign on their platform, they have created the simplest exchange platform on the world! OnePageX vision is to provide a unique service that prevents users from wasting their time and protect their privacy. Even more, OnePageX service provide the widest BTC pair option for users to easily exchange their BTC to the altcoin of their preference. Crypto Trade In Three Steps 1. Select the desired crypto to start your exchange from. I am very satisfied since OnePageX already offers support for EOS, Steem, Ethereum and Bitcoin. They have other options and they have stated that they will not stop adding more. Then you chose what crypto you will want to receive. 2. Add the address where you want to receive the funds, you could add a tag or memo, and finally click on the Start Exchange Label. 3. A tab containig the URL with the “session” that records your transaction and a card with its status will be created The card will be updated to keep track of the status of the transaction. The exchange is done as soon as the deposit is confirmed, the confirmation time depends on the Bitcoin Blockchain. OnePageX Transaction fees A sensible fee of 0.5% plus some network fees will be charged, all the fees are included on the estimated balances displayed when creating the exchange card. What do the status messages on the exchange card mean 0 of X confirmations The deposit is still unconfirmed on the Blockchain and OnePageX has not received the funds yet. Since the confirmation time depends on the Blockchain traffic and on the fees paid by the user, is not possible for OnePageX to reduce the confirmation period. Withdrawal Queued Withdrawals are batched and sent at fixed intervals. When the card displays this message, users can know that their exchange is about to be completed. Below Minimum Despite OnePageX would love to process even the tiniest transaction, this is not possible due to peer-transaction costs. Users have to be certain that their deposit amount is above the minimum withdrawal and that their exchange outputs produce a non-zero result on the exchange estimator. OnePageX outstanding technical features If you are a wordpress site manager, and you want your users to readily use the avantages that OnePageX offers you just have to copy & paste the following code on your web page. < div style="display: flex; justify-content: center;"> < iframe src="https://onepagex.com/box/v1" width="800" height="400" style="border: none;">Unable To Load Widget< /iframe>< /div> Use case Samuel is a manager of several stores on a retailers market in the Uk, he offers a wide scope of products on all his stores, thus driving all kind of clients who have a huge diversity on their preferences. Samuel is totally engaged with crypto, thus he accepts a few as a form of payment in all his stores. Linda, a young Mexican tourist, visits one of his stores. She really likes the merchandise on Frank’s stores and she wants to buy a lot to gift it as presents for her relatives when she cames back to Mexico. She already has spent most of her dollars and she only has Bitshares and Steem. When she tries to pay with her bitshares Samuel’s employee is unable to accept her payment because he only has Bitcoin, Ethereum, and LiteCoin wallets. The situation is a loss for all parties, Danna left the store empty-handed and Samuel loses the opportunity to sell merchandise worth several hundreds of dollars in one sell. When Samuel is informed about this he feels frustrated and immediately goes to his laptop to find a solution. While googling user-friendly exchanges he reads several posts on Steemit about an exchange service that will create a new paradigm! He finds OnePageX and he feels like he was blessed with the perfect service for his retailer stores. He immediately has his employees learn in just ten minutes who to make exchanges on OnePageX so they can give proper attention to all customers. Even more, Samuel have OnePageX on his business web pages creating a more attractive site. He decides to spread the word among his friends and other stores owners on the retailers market. Soon everybody if speaking how OnePageX will be their favorite exchange because they no longer have to provide any personal documentation nor they have to go through excessively complex exchanges mechanism. Conclusion We have an immense variety of possible users for the crypto ecosystem, in the world we live we always have super crowded agendas that left us with little to no time left to spare. Taken this into account, the OnePageX team have created the more user-friendly exchange services on the world. All the process to exchange your Bitcoins for any other crypto just takes a few clicks, and since no KYC is required the precious privacy of every user is protected along the process. More services like the one that OnePageX offers is what crypto need to finally get mass adoption. By providing a reliable, simple, and private exchange service OnePageX have driven us closer to the day when crypto will be the norm and not the exception.

How to make your first investment in SPDR and generate revenue with masternodes and other amazing news
Welcome to the weekly blog section of the SPIDER VPS team, blog section where we will talk about the development of our platform. For us, it is very important to have a space dedicated to the weekly updates of our project, as we demonstrate that our commitment and our effort is real and that we want to deliver a project 100% dedicated to our community. For this day’s section, we will talk about how you, as a young investor, will be able to invest directly in our currency and generate income with our masternodes system.We would also like to show the progression of our marketing campaign,new services and partnerships are being added everyday in order for spider coin to “reach out every corner”.We seek to be the best project of the moment. You are welcome to join us and find out how our project is right now, its development and movement in the community,which is the most important thing because we can do any kind of positive development but if we do not have the support of our community and investors we can not move forward so all our progress we owe to you , our faithful and big family.
First investments in SPDR
https://preview.redd.it/fbf16xkk6k231.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=357f53a1628deac588bcaebc4a35b3aae3f67ac2 First we’ll talk about why it’s a good option for you to invest in our project. We are currently among the 20 best masternode coins of the moment as we have a current volume of 24 hours of more than 23.70 BTC. Also in such a short time we were listed in coinmarketcap. This is a great joy for us because many know that being on the list in such a short time in coinmarketcap is a challenge that only a few can achieve. To list a project on CMC they must have a very good volume of trade because CMC does a very deep study to know if a currency can be listed with them and they listed SPDR almost immediately showing that it is a project worth believing in and investing in. This makes us understand that we have a growing community that believes in us and fully trusts that we are a project with a very strong base. With such a large percentage of currencies closed, we have a very good decrease in ROI that will give more price and stability to our currency, in just fifteen days we saw how the price of our currency doubled compared to its value, which is amazing. I will show it in the following graph, because the young investors to whom this post is addressed need to know why it is a good idea to invest in us and what are the great advantages of doing so… We know we still have a long way to go, but we work day by day constantly refining our platform and telling only the truth to our community. https://preview.redd.it/x2hq8z6n6k231.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=d8ed847d8a68c651c5179e14d155a80c290e5e9d SPDR has been a very innovative concept because you can acquire it thanks to its hybrid algo that has mining POW and POS staking/masternode system which means that investors can choose either to mine their coins with their Gpu’s or stake them/run masternodes by themselves or by using our trusted partners that offer shared masternode services and earn a passive income from a coin in constant growth.. As a second point we will talk about how these shared masternodes work because they are the most used at moment.You do not need to have all the collateral to acquire rewards because you can invest in what you want and buy a seat available to duplicate those coins to get to have your own node in this way but this is what we will talk about. Then, as I said, let’s talk about the fact that SPDR was able to list in an exchange very early on, which is also amazing since part of the pre-sale was done in CREX24. Our team was very assertive in listing with this great exchange because it is very respectable nowadays, it has a daily volume of 192 BTC and by the way our currency is in the number one position, after a while we decided that it was time to expand and we needed another exchange so we chose CryptoBridge which has a current volume of 52 BTC and has earned the affection of many for its great system together with the chain of blocks of Bitshares ,our coin here is ranked in the top 10. https://preview.redd.it/nhcgpo0p6k231.png?width=659&format=png&auto=webp&s=7fea21a44c78d111dc05a10f54b4cd0c7e7e3ef6 CREX24 https://preview.redd.it/7ohuqwaq6k231.png?width=266&format=png&auto=webp&s=13c9e7666b272f32e96b1f04205e82abd14480d8 CryptoBridge

https://preview.redd.it/pyh67fps6k231.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cec0b5933fe7710c6d223b7ee4f1fac4a82a1cee Every day more and more partners join our project so this time we will talk about all the shared masternode services which have brought many benefits to the projects because they do something that is a true for many masternode investors which is that not many of them know the technical parts of how to host a masternode, and with those platforms they can do it for a percentage cost of their hosted currencies or simply because they are investors who want to expand their portfolio and want to invest in many currencies. Many of this services(if they agree with the coin teams) run instant nodes.What is an istant node? Basically it is a masternode running in the background which gives instant rewards to all members that join a shared pool. If there are for example 3500 coins in the pool but no istant node running then all users will get staking rewards only. If there is an instant node running than all users will get 50% of masternode rewards shared between them. https://preview.redd.it/5bymtooy6k231.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=a9e5170ec14222654e7eb0d1f663fca2bd98b66f service offers an instant shared masternodes for SPDR.

Q) What’s with all the vitriol and inaccuracies here? I thought this was the bitcoin forum for rational people. A) Cryptocurrency forums shout down critics, and censor people who aren’t members of the right sect. So it’s not surprising that the silenced members end up here, looking for the rational person’s bitcoin forum. This is, of course, as contradictory as looking for the vegetarian’s steakhouse or the atheist's synagogue. Rational people realize this, but we’re not talking about them. We’re talking about butters, and rule one of butters is they never learn. Q) Fine, the community is troubled. But isn’t the technology impressive? A) Cryptocurrencies aren’t anonymous or decentralized or fee-free. Settlement isn’t fast. Transactions are immutable, until you’re hard-forked. All we’re left to talk about is a distributed ledger with cryptographic signatures, and an ecologically disastrous proof-of-work scheme. We are not impressed. You can get the same effects by seeding a PGP-signed SQLite database on BitTorrent and leaving a few dozen hair dryers running. The interesting part is that people value cryptocoins anyway. But this is not a function of blockchain tech being interesting, any more than the beanie baby craze was a function of teddy bear manufacturing being interesting. It’s about the people, it’s always about the people. Q) Ha ha, BTC just rose from $640 to $680, how does it feel to have your dreams crushed, you filthy statists?!? A) The honest truth is we don’t care. Sure, we’ll gleefully crow about it when the price plummets, but that’s only because there’s nothing a troll likes more than an easy target. The best part is that anyone who would ask this question will never believe the answer. I could try to convince you otherwise, but there’s no point: rule one of butters is they never learn. This is not to say that I don’t love a good skullfucking, like any red-blooded statist shill. They just don’t gouge and bone eye-sockets like they used to. Q) You’re right, bitcoin is stupid. That’s why we’ll all get rich shorting BTC, am I right? A) No, I’m afraid you aren’t. We love mocking the butter get-rich-scheme of speculating on internet funbucks, and using scam-ridden, unregulated exchanges to do it. There’s so much here for us to laugh about. We coudn’t care less which side of the bet you’re taking. We’ll send you a heartfelt SFYL when Bitfinex goes belly-up, though. Q) I thought this was a Bitcoin mockery subreddit. What’s with all the altcoin posts? A) It’s about the people, it’s always about the people. The personalities and behaviors that we love to mock exist in the altchain communities, so why wouldn’t we go there when something fun happens? But please keep asking, because this complaint is a source of further joy. It’s like Scientologists whining that we spend all our time making fun of the Solar Temple. “Don’t you love us anymore?” Q) Why are you giving away all of the subreddit’s secrets? A) There’s no risk. We’re talking about butters, and rule one of butters is they never learn. Q) So what’s in it for you guys? A) Schadenfreude. Yeah, it’s an ugly emotion, but we’re here to revel in it anyway. Butters should know better, but they don’t. We could try to educate them, but rule one of butters is they never learn. All that’s left is to laugh as the community churns out fiasco after amazing fiasco. It’s fun. Q) No, really, what’s in it for you guys? A) The space lizards at the Federal Reserve offer a generous compensation package with awesome benefits. And the shill of the month gets to walk out of the Treasury with as many sheets of uncut hundreds as they can carry as the guards look away. That is an awesome perk. As long as we can keep duping innocents into believing that the dollar is solvent, we’re rich!
