@Tanner - SC blockchain decentralizes things. so anything you can think of on the internet can be done in this way. first two things past bitcoin that have had moderate success is a blockchain based social media and, in the word right now, a blockchain ISP.

2018-01-18 15:23:23 UTC  

you dont especially need to use blockchain to decentralize either. torrent already does a that, bitchute implements that.

2018-01-18 15:23:39 UTC  

but decentralizing is the future of the internet

2018-01-18 15:25:26 UTC  

OpenBazaar also works this way

oosh, yeah BitConnect is one of the bigger coins accused of being pump and dump , produced some funny videos from a BitConnect conference in Thailand of this guy

2018-01-18 22:30:44 UTC  

Not a pump and dump, but an actual pyramid scheme

2018-01-19 03:41:30 UTC  

Good point

2018-01-19 14:45:47 UTC  

Interesting perspective from a while back

2018-01-19 16:16:31 UTC  

That't can't be true, that guy that lost 500K. No one who has 500K (unless it is lottery winnings i guess) would be dumb enough to do that. 500K into crypto coins haha.

2018-01-19 16:19:11 UTC  

I really hope nobody here is risking anything they are not comfortable losing. Please don't do that. If you have serious money to invest, invest in your health, or property in eastern europe or New Zealand. That being said, once BTC hits 50K it is time to go short MBS-style.

2018-01-19 19:06:17 UTC  

@here just a generic and friendly reminder to not risk money you can't lose. Also that no one here has a crystal ball and unforseen risks can arise.

2018-01-19 22:48:36 UTC  

What Chris said.

2018-01-20 02:49:35 UTC  

How do we sort out the Tether situation?

2018-01-20 02:49:56 UTC  

I could see it going wrong if everyone sells at the same time

2018-01-20 16:13:51 UTC  

hahaha is this for real? There is a fiat currency built on top of non-existent 'digital' currency build on top of electricty wasting tech that makes gaming graphics card had to get. I can't even tell who is jewing who anymore.

2018-01-20 19:10:05 UTC  

BTC trickling up since news of successful Lightening Network uses have been coming out. Checkout /r/Bitcoin for more examples like this

2018-01-20 19:13:22 UTC  

/r/Bitcoin is heavily censored, I don't trust anything from that sub

2018-01-20 19:32:49 UTC  

That's true, it's a pro-Bitcoin subreddit. That being said, I'm interested in any news that makes any crypto more valuable. Even though there are many alternative cryptocurrencies that introduce improvements over certain features of BitCoin's technology, I am still interested in any improvement to BitCoin's technology because I think investors' biggest concerns are about solutions to scaling problems in blockchain technology and BitCoin's transaction volume puts it at the frontier of needing innovative scaling solutions. If Bitcoin can't scale then we will need to fundamentally rethink if and how to use cryptocurrencies because if Bitcoin can't scale then eventually any other cryptocurrency will have to confront and try to solve scaling problems, with lots of market uncertainty.

2018-01-20 21:00:39 UTC  

Heavy censorship and "pro-Bitcoin" are not the same thing.

2018-01-20 21:00:58 UTC  

Criticism is literally not allowed, shoah'd immediately in /r/Bitcoin

2018-01-20 21:01:30 UTC  

You will not find a comment there that critiques the lightning network.

2018-01-20 21:01:39 UTC  

There is no debate or discussion.

2018-01-21 00:13:04 UTC  

That's unfortunate

2018-01-22 01:43:36 UTC  

@Tanner - SC Is there a website where I can compare fees and transaction times?

2018-01-22 02:57:26 UTC shows that for BTC and BCH, but not others. One might exist for other coins, I’m just not aware of one.

2018-01-22 03:26:30 UTC  

hmmm okay

2018-01-22 03:26:32 UTC  


2018-01-22 20:31:05 UTC  

@here I try to give a warning a week about risk in investing, instead this week I give you this video.

2018-01-22 23:33:31 UTC  

lesson of that vid: hodl

2018-01-28 19:49:21 UTC  

Sad story. Also, so much for Britain's gun control.

2018-01-29 01:29:46 UTC  

Why the beginning of the end? I thought that was good news?

2018-02-01 00:31:12 UTC

2018-02-01 00:32:02 UTC  

@Anthony Sealy - MO haha, yeah I heard BTC is cracking the 10k resistence?
