As the title says I am collecting Bitcoin users' motivation when using Bitcoin and while discussing Bitcoin on message boards such as this one. I am a sociologist who has been very interested in Bitcoin for awhile now and would love to share the results with everyone once I get a good enough amount of data to be considered representative. Things are coming along rather well for my first week so far but I really need to keep the ball rolling, so if you have not filled my survey out already I would highly, highly appreciate it if you would!

Thanks!

Latest Bitcoin News / Helping A Hurting Family
« Last post by administrator on Today at 03:26:57 AM »
I am posting this on a few Bitcoin forums so we can get help for our dear friend Stephanie. Currently she had a death of a child and cannot afford funeral expenses for her daughter.

As of today we had raised around 500$ from local businesses in our area from collection jars and around 68$ on GoFundMe. Stephanie was a married stay at home mother of three before loosing her husband last year to a drunk driver. She has two children now and works 2 separate jobs trying to support them and barely making monthly rent. Stephanie's beautiful daughter ashley, age 11, past away on February 18th, 2019. Ashley reminded all of us how fun our child hood was in Erie. It was a tremendous loss when she left our community. To help Stephanie is our last chance to do something to show Ashley how much we loved her.

Anything will help Stephanie and all the money received will go towards the funeral expenses. If, any money is left over, it will go to supporting her family. Stephanie knows that her hometown community has been taking donations for her but, she keeps going to work and not taking the time off needed. We personally think she should be taking all the time she needs to get the support desperately needed thats why our community is doing everything we can to try and make things easier for her.

We are using coinbase so, all bitcoin will be converted into cash an then withdrawaled into a PayPal account for Stephanie.

Please,  If you can donate even 1$, .50¢ please send to:

God Bless, Erie Community

Bitcoin transaction will be converted at night every few days and, added in together as one total to the GoFundMe Page. Donation will say Sent from "Bitcoin Community".

Again, thank you and we will update this post every few days or so. If you would like to add your name to the donations, please send a message. God Bless - The Erie Community

Latest Bitcoin News / Bitcoin to replace fiat
« Last post by administrator on February 22, 2019, 07:48:13 PM »
In this history of mankind any kind of innovation to solve something has always benefited it does however takes its own time to fix things .. look at those trillion dollars of debt in u.s if they don't pay the entire country goes into bankruptcy and this not only affects one country but several others will be down along with it .. we need robust technology to solve such things if humans keep using paper money it will not only cause problems to the country but to its own people. adoption of block chain is very important in near future. lets see how much we care .. if Government really needs to solve their debt issues blockchain is the only way out to convert their useless fiat to valuable blockchain technology it will not only help to crush fiat and pay of trillions it will help to rescue the majority of countries in Asia and worldwide.

Latest Bitcoin News / Storing cyrpto for clients
« Last post by administrator on February 22, 2019, 05:39:07 PM »
So I am hoping I can get some advice for a change.
My "day job" is trading FIAT, not only for myself but also for clients.  For the past couple of months, I have been persuading a couple of clients to "invest" in bitcoin and Ether and basically HODL.  So the idea is I trade FIAT as normal, at the end of the month, when I would usually transfer the funds to their bank accounts, I buy BTC and/or ETH, instead,  and transfer to their wallets.

These aren't small amounts that will be deposited each month, for one client it could be anywhere between 10-20 BTC per month or 350-500 ETH per month, so I need to be able to make sure they are secure.  I have thought about hardware wallets (Ledger/ Trezor) which I use myself BUT I just don't think they are the best solution for non-technical people.

So, I would like your opinion on my solution to this. 
For bitcoin use a multisig Electrum Wallet.  The client holds 1st co-sign part on his computer and I hold the 2nd co-sign on a computer that never links to the internet, so effectively its an ice cold wallet.

For Ether I thought of using GNOSIS for the multisig wallet.  To be honest, though I have only played around with this wallet on the Rinkeby testnet, so looking for advice on what people make of it (i,e how secure is it that funds cant be locked like with the Parity Multisig wallet a couple of years ago)

Now the likelihood is one client will only ever need to use the co-sign wallet maybe once per year (he plans to HODL long term) whereas a second client might want to move funds around and have cosigned transactions monthly.

This cosign option seems (in my head) to work equally well for both clients.

I already have a PoA (power of attorney) if anything happens to me, they can get their funds back, so I can just add a codicil covering the Private Keys etc - and have those stored in a Safety Deposit Box, so I am not worried about that.  I want your opinion on the method I am looking to implement and whether you think its a good option.

Persuading traditionally conservative clients to dip their toe in the crypto water, has/is a hard uphill struggle even though there are huge benefits for them, I just want to make sure I have covered all the bases and I am offering them a solution that is the "best in breed"

Obviously, its something I can charge my clients for, but that's not a motivating factor,, it's about keeping my clients BTC/ETH secure.

I would really appreciate any comments/suggestions.

Latest Bitcoin News / Best new way to pay with Bitcoin
« Last post by administrator on February 22, 2019, 04:16:36 PM »
I'm very excited for the new Samsung S10!! Looks like Bitcoin is at the top. Anyone else waiting to get their hands on this?

"The app appears to support ether (ETH) and bitcoin (BTC) by default, as there are logos for the two displayed in the Blockchain Keystore introduction image. Further, there is a cryptocurrency/token “add” button, so users will presumably be able to use other cryptocurrencies and ethereum-based ERC-20 tokens via the wallet."
