Latest Bitcoin News / Investors are More Bullish in Bitcoin Now
« Last post by administrator on April 18, 2019, 08:23:37 PM »

https://www.ccn.com/this-billionaire-investor-more-bullish-crypto-bitcoin

To become more secure, transparent and regulated market companies like Binance are looking to become more compliant. We recently saw their new partnership with Ciphertrace to help with AML. this led to the inflow of capital from investors who finally feel comfortable investing.

SHouold we expect to see more of this in the future? Is it good for projects?

Hi friends,


I'm working on a new service and trying to understand how people manage their crypto hardware wallet backups today. If you'd have 2 minutes to spare I'd greatly appreciate if you could take the anonymous survey below.


Specifically, I’m trying to get some insight into what is the reasonable balance between safety and security for crypto owners when managing their recovery seed and passphrase backups.


For example, the most obvious and arguably most "secure" is storing your passphrase backup in your head. However, this maybe isn't that "safe" in case of forgetting your passphrase due to the passage of time, disease or an accident. And certainly, it's not "safe" at all for inheritance purposes as your passphrase is going to the grave with you, leaving your Next-of-Kin with nothing Sad


There's not much I could offer back except good karma and sharing the survey results. But I can promise that your feedback will help me develop a better service that will benefit you and the broader crypto community.


Thanks in advance Smiley

PS: If you are interested in the service I’m building, drop me a message. I’ll be happy to share more details and also give you the premium features for free (once built and finished)


PS2: Below in comments, I’ll share how I protected my own hardware wallet backups for your inspiration. Hopefully, you’ll find this strategy beneficial when keeping your backups safe and/or help me make it even better! I’ll be happy to answer anything.

Latest Bitcoin News / Satoshi is a Group of Individuals
« Last post by administrator on April 18, 2019, 07:11:04 PM »
The more I start to hear about Craig Wright's claim to be Satoshi the more I start to do my research of who Satoshi might actually be. I believe it's a group of people true cypherpunks that helped built the idea of Bitcoin together. I came across this quote on Hal Finney's wiki page:

Finney was a cypherpunk and said:

It seemed so obvious to me: "Here we are faced with the problems of loss of privacy, creeping computerization, massive databases, more centralization - and [David] Chaum offers a completely different direction to go in, one which puts power into the hands of individuals rather than governments and corporations. The computer can be used as a tool to liberate and protect people, rather than to control them."

David who Finney mentions still has skin in the game and is currently working on a privacy platform called Elixxir. Unfortunately Hal is no longer with us but there are a group of people including David who are still working on preserving the true goal and vision of a true p2p electronic cash system.

Latest Bitcoin News / Bitcointalk tech support incompetency?
« Last post by administrator on April 18, 2019, 05:31:14 PM »
My e-mail to Bitcointalk:  "The login Captcha won't show up, despite me enabling JS permissions for Bitcointalk, Google, and Gstatic.  I was hoping to update my sales listing with photos.  If for some reason this is a permanent issue, could a moderator help by posting the photos?"

Bitcointalk's reply:  "This is the hacked/lost accounts recovery email. Such requests should be made in the relevant Bitcointalk forum section."

So, I'm supposed to post to the forum, to inform them that I cannot log in... to post to the forum.  *facepalm*

Luckily, the problem turned out to be an issue with Firefox's privacy settings.

Latest Bitcoin News / KRAKEN DELISTING BSV, We are all Satoshi
« Last post by administrator on April 18, 2019, 04:26:51 PM »



I got a mail from Kraken Exchange notifying me of their intention to delist Bitcoin SV, It seem the Craig stunt saga is not going to be "forgiven" easily and that we are yet to see the end of it. Binance did a de-listing already..Kraken actually ran a survey to see people's opinion before taking their decisions and results are shown above. The crypto-community made a decision, say no to no intimidation and centralization.

The points to be noted is that Satoshi is a wise man, wanted a bitcoin whose future is determined by the community, not a single individual (as with BSV's Craig), that is why he chosed to remain anonymous. If Craig falls, BSv falls, not so with bitcoin. We are all Satoshi and we all have a say in the bitcoin.

I am currently undertaking a final year bachelor's degree research project in Business and Management in the UK. My topic is very relevant to Bitcoin as the research topic is; "Awareness and attitudes towards ethical issues in the cryptocurrency industry". The goal of the research is to gain an overall understanding of the current awareness levels of people about the negative side of the cryptocurrency industry as well as to better understand people's attitudes towards them. I currently have loads of data, but the majority is from individuals who have not been involved in cryptocurrencies. So, it would be very helpful to receive so replies from some of you as one of the key parts of my hypothesis is that cryptocurrency investors are likely to have a very different level of knowledge and attitude towards these issues! If you could take two minutes to fill out my Google Forms survey, I would be very thankful! Also, I am happy to receive some feedback on the survey.

Edit. Also, happy to share some of the results here afterwards.

Latest Bitcoin News / Bitcoin to launch blockchain!

Binance is expected to launch blockchain on 18 April 2019. What are your expectations from this blockchain?

I think it's safe to say the arrival of cryptocurrency has been well and truly announced.  The ringing of the announcer's bell is reverberating around the world and as a consequence the odds are a lot higher than they were a month ago that those who are in most desperate need of what Bitcoin offers in terms of protection against tyrannical manipulative regimes will have heard of it by now.

This is one of the reasons I am not too concerned about the feedback loop that seems to be going on with the continued boom resulting in more news coverage resulting in more interest resulting in the continued boom!  Even if it does result (whether tomorrow, in a week, a month or even in a year's time) in a pretty substantial fall in price relative to fiat I would consider that a price worth paying for the news saturation we have seen in the last week or two.  The likelihood is most people know somebody who knows somebody who has heard of Bitcoin and that may just be enough for it to emerge as a substantive tool in protecting those for whom access to it would make the biggest difference in their lives.

The other advantage of it having happened so fast - especially if it continues on this trajectory for a month or two longer - is that governments simply don't act that fast other than when it comes to war.  No government will want to be seen to be the first to take draconian measures - which could as many point out also backfire - which means they need even more time to prepare if they've got to negotiate with other world powers to make a concerted effort to 'do something'!

My guess is by the time they got around to that it will be too late in that there will be too many examples available to show how Bitcoin is playing a critical role in improving the lives of the most oppressed.  Remember also the US government not only gave up on trying to control cryptographic protocols but also released Tor into the wild knowing it would be used for nefarious purposes but accepting that as the cost of the technology being available to those fighting tyrannical regimes.

I think in many more ways then one things are looking up
