BOA Account Frozen After Trading On Paxful. HELP! -$888.888.88
TL;DR -BOA account frozen likely due to high trading volume on zelle/ paxful or chargeback - Should I tell the bank the truth about my trading activity? ( I am aware this could possibly be in violation of the terms of service) Or keep that to myself? - How do I get my account back in good standing and get my money back ASAP So I sell bitcoin on Paxful using exclusively Zelle. I am an established trader with a positive reputation over 150, zero negative remarks and my account 7 months old. I went to go purchase something with my debit card yesterday only to have it declined, however I did not get any fraud alert. Only after checking my account and calling the bank did I notice that a $888,888.88 hold had been placed on my account, the rep called this a fraud freeze . The customer service rep transferred me over to the fraud department which is closed until Monday, so I am unable to resolve this until then. Now I'm assuming this hold was triggered because I regularly accept Zelle transactions from all over the place, must look very suspicious. I am also prepared to deal with the fact that one of these customers tried to initiate a charge back. I know Zelle's policy is no charge backs but if the sender files a fraud claim with their bank that could change things. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? Could you advise me how to handle this. Like I said I am the rightful owner of this account and did due diligence in vetting my buyers, requiring a selfie with ID and a note with today's date or ID verification through Paxful. I was just going to be completely honest with the bank and provide them with the extensive documentation I have for each recent trade. Is this a bad idea? Unfortunately this is my main checking account and they have frozen thousands of dollars that has nothing to do with Zelle and I have bills to pay. Any advice would be appreciated since I have yet to find a real answer, only speculation.
I made a huge mistake on Localbitcoin by selling bitcoin for BOA (online bank transfer), I released the coins immediately he sent me a confirmation(a screenshot). My wife's account got an overdraft of 888,888.88USD immediately after the money from the trade hit her account. She called BOA and they told her they suspect fraudulent activity and her account has to be closed. This is the username of the guy I opened the trade with bbfish94. He claimed to have called the bank to release the funds and confirmed the transaction. I don't know if this is a scam because I just noticed the guy has only 24 confirmed trades with just 4 partners. Has anyone opened a trade with this guy before on LBC?
Why I am investing in Ocean Protocol tl;dr Unlocking data for AI Partnered with; Unilever, Roche, Johnson&Johnson, Aviva, MOBI (BMW, Ford, GM) Currently at $0.03, IEO price $0.12, ICO price $0.2. Staking coming Q2. THE PROBLEM The world has a data problem. The more we create, the more we are forced to entrust it all to fewer data monopolies to profit from. Data is also siloed, and generally hosted on proprietary databases across vast systems, geographies and business units. Whilst there have been fixes and APIs that have helped improve the sharing of corporate and public data, fundamentally this doesn’t change the fact that client-server architecture and corporate IT networks are inherently designed to prevent data sharing. Regulation and privacy laws combine to make organisations concerned about sharing data both internally and publicly unless forced to do so. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the US or the Data Protection Act in the UK explicitly state how and what data can and cannot be shared. But these are complicated policies. The technical difficulty of implementing them, combined with bad UX means people err on the side of caution when approaching these issues. There is simply no incentive to outweigh the risk and hassle of sharing data. Even where sharing is encouraged, current infrastructure makes monetising data through open source licensing complex and equally difficult to enforce. So ultimately, you are left with two options: give your data away for free (which what most individuals do) or hoard it and see if you can make sense of it at some time in the future (which is what most companies do). Neither is very efficient or effective. The consequence is a few increasingly powerful companies get the vast majority of data at little cost, and large amounts of valuable data are sat dormant in siloed databases. Simply put, there is no economic incentive to share data. This is a massive issue in the AI market (expected to be worth $70 billion in 2020 according to BoA Merrill). The best AI techniques today, such as deep learning, need lots (and lots) of quality and relevant datasets to deliver any kind of meaningful value. Starving most new entrants (such as startups and SMEs) of the ability to compete. AI expertise and talent is expensive and hard to come by, typically concentrating within organisations that already have the data to play with or promise to generate vast quantities of it in the future. Companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Baidu swallow up almost all the best talent and computer science and AI PhDs before they even come onto the jobs market. This creates a self-propagating cycle, increasingly benefiting a few established organisations who are able to go on to dominate their respective markets, extracting a premium for the priviledge. Think of Facebook & Google in the Ad Market, Amazon for Retail, now imagine that happening across every single industry vertical. Data leads to data network effects, and subsequent AI advantages which are extremely hard to catch up with once the flywheel starts. The way things are going, the driver-less car market will likely consolidate around one single software provider. As old industries like education, healthcare and utilities digitize their operations and start utilizing data, the same will likely happen there too. The benefits of the 4th Industrial Revolution are in the hands of fewer and fewer organisations. Currently the expectation is that companies, rather than trying to compete (if they want to stay in business), are expected to concede their data to one of the big tech clouds like Amazon or Microsoft to be able to extract value from it. Further extending the suppliers’ unfair advantage and increasing their own dependency. Look at autonomous vehicles, German manufacturers unable to compete with Silicon Valley’s AIs for self driving cars could be left simply making the low-value hardware whilst conceding the higher-value (and margin) software to companies that drive the intelligence that control them. I’ve always argued companies don’t want Big Data. They want actionable intelligence. But currently most large organisations have vast dumb data in silos that they simply don’t know what to do with. But what if… they could securely allow AI developers to run algorithms on it whilst keeping it stored encrypted, on-premise. And open up every database at a ‘planetary level’ and turn them into a single data marketplace. Who would own or control it? To be frank, it would require unseen levels of trust. Data is generally very sensitive, revealing and something you typically would not want to share with your competitors. Especially in say, consumer health how could that be possible with complex privacy laws? What’s needed is a decentralised data marketplace to connect AI developers to data owners in a compliant, secure and affordable way. Welcome to Ocean Protocol. Why decentralised and tokenised? Primarily because of the need for the provenance of IP, affordable payment channels, and the ensure no single entity becomes a gatekeeper to a hoard of valuable data. Gatekeeper, in the sense that they can arbitrarily ban or censor participants but also to avoid the same honeypot hacking problems we encounter in today’s centralised world. But aren’t there already decentralised data market projects? The Ocean team have focused their design on enabling ‘exchange protocols’, resulting in massive potential for partnerships with other players in the domain. As investors in IOTA, understanding how this could work with their Data Marketplace is an interesting case in point. INNOVATIONS What we like most about Ocean is they have been deploying many of the constituent parts that underpin this marketplace over the last 4 years via a number of initiatives which they are now bringing together into one unified solution: (digital ownership & attribution) (high throughput distributed database to allow for high throughput transactions) (Scalability – build on proven BigchainDB / IPDB technology for “planetary scale”) (blockchain-ready, community-driven protocol for intellectual property licensing) What is being added is a protocol and token designed to incentivize and program rules and behaviours into the marketplace to ensure relevant good quality data is committed, made available and fairly remunerated. The design is prepared for processing confidential data for machine learning and aggregated analysis without exposing the raw data itself. Ocean will facilitate in bringing the processing algorithms to the data through on-premise compute and, eventually, more advanced techniques, like homomorphic encryption, as they mature. OCEAN Token Think of the Ocean Token as the ‘crypto asset’ that serves as the commodity in the data economy to incentivise the mass coordination of resources to secure and scale the network to turn in to actionable intelligence. If Ocean is about trading data, can’t it use an existing cryptocurrency as its token, like Bitcoin or Ether? While existing tokens might serve as a means of exchange, the Ocean protocol requires a token of its own because it uses its a specific form of monetary policy and rewards. Users get rewarded with newly minted tokens for providing high quality, relevant data and keeping it available. This means the protocol requires control over the money supply and rules out using any existing general purpose protocols or tokens. Furthermore, from the perspective of Ocean users, volatility in an uncorrelated token would disrupt the orderly value exchange between various stakeholders in the marketplace they desire. OCEAN Data Providers (Supplying Data) Actors who have data and want to monetise it, can make it available through Ocean for a price. When their data is used by Data Consumers, Data Providers receive tokens in return. OCEAN Data Curators (Quality Control) An interesting concept to Ocean is the application of curation markets. Someone needs to decide what data on Ocean is good and which data is bad. As Ocean is a decentralised system, there can’t be a central committee to do this. Instead, anyone with domain expertise can participate as a Data Curator and earn newly minted tokens by separating the wheat from the chaff. Data Curators put an amount of tokens at stake to signal that a certain dataset is of high quality. Every time they correctly do this, they receive newly minted tokens in return. OCEAN Registry of Actors (Keeping Bad Actors Out) Because Ocean is an open protocol, not only does it need mechanisms to curate data, it needs a mechanism to curate the participants themselves. For this reason a Registry of Actors is part of Ocean, again applying staking of tokens to make good behaviour more economically attractive than bad behaviour. OCEAN Keepers (Making Data Available) The nodes in the Ocean network are called Keepers. They run the Ocean software and make datasets available to the network. Keepers receive newly minted tokens to perform their function. Data Providers need to use one or more Keepers to offer data to the network. BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER Ocean is building a platform to enable a ‘global data commons’. A platform where anyone can share and be rewarded for the data they contribute where the token and protocol is designed specifically to incentivise data sharing and remuneration. So let’s see that in the context of a single use-case: Clinical Trial Data Note: that this use-case is provided for illustrative purposes only, to get a feel for how Ocean could work in practice. Some of the specifics of the Ocean protocol have yet to be finalised and published in the white paper, and might turn out different than described here. Bob is a clinical physician with a data science background who uses Ocean. He knows his industry well and has experience understanding what types of clinical data are useful in trials. Charlie works at a company that regularly runs medical trials. He has collected a large amount of data for a very specific trial which has now concluded, and he believes it could be valuable for others but he doesn’t know exactly how. Charlie publishes the dataset through Ocean and judging its value (based on the cost to produce and therefore replicate), as well as his confidence in its overall quality, he stakes 5 tokens on it (to prove it is his IP, which if people want to use they must pay for). Charlie uses one of the Keeper nodes maintained by his company’s IT department. Bob, as a Data Curator of clinical trial data on Ocean, is notified of its submission, and sees no one has challenged its ownership. By looking at a sample he decides the data is of good quality and based on how broad its utility could be he stakes 10 Ocean tokens to back his judgement. Bob is not alone and quickly a number of other Data Curators with good reputation also evaluate the data and make a stake. By this point a number of AI developers see Charlie’s dataset is becoming popular and purchase it through Ocean. Charlie, Bob and the other curators get rewarded in newly minted tokens, proportional to the amount they staked and the number of downloads. The Keeper node at Charlie’s company regularly receives a request to cryptographically prove it still has the data available. Each time it answers correctly, it also receives some newly minted tokens. When Bob and Charlie signed up to join Ocean, they staked some tokens to get added to the Registry of Actors. Eve also wants to join Ocean. She stakes 100 tokens to get added to The Registry of Actors. Eve is actually a malicious actor. She purchases Charlie’s dataset through Ocean, then claims it’s hers and publishes it under her own account for a slightly lower price. Furthermore, she creates several more “sock puppet” accounts, each with some more tokens staked to join, to serve as Data Curators and vouch for her copy of the dataset. Bob and Charlie discover Eve’s malice. They successfully challenge Eve and her sock puppet accounts in the Registry of Actors. Eve and her sock puppet accounts get removed from the Registry of Actors and she loses all staking tokens. APPROACH, TRACTION & TEAM I am greatly encouraged by the fact that Ocean were aligned to building what we term a Community Token Economy (CTE) where multiple stakeholders ( & ) partner early on to bring together complementary skills and assets. As two existing companies (one already VC backed) they are committing real code and IP already worth several million in value*. *This is an important point to remember when considering the valuation and token distribution of the offering. The open, inclusive, transparent nature of IPDB foundation bodes well for how Ocean will be run and how it will solve complex governance issues as the network grows. I am also impressed with the team’s understanding of the importance of building a community. They understand that networks are only as powerful as the community that supports it. This is why they have already signed key partnerships with XPrize Foundation, SingularityNet, Mattereum, Integration Alpha and ixo Foundation as well as agreeing an MOU with the Government of Singapore to provide coverage and indemnification for sandboxes for data sharing. The team understands that the decentralisation movement is still in its early stages and that collaborative and partnership is a more effective model than competition and going it alone. PLACE IN THE CONVERGENCE ECOSYSTEM STACK Ocean protocol is a fundamental requirement for the Convergence Ecosystem Stack. It is a protocol that enables a thriving AI data marketplace. It is complementary to our other investments in IOTA and SEED both of whom provide a marketplace for machine data and bots respectively. Marketplaces are critical to the development of the Convergence Ecosystem as they enable new data-based and tokenised business models that have never before been possible to unlock value. Distributed ledgers, blockchains and other decentralization technologies are powerful tools for authenticating, validating, securing and transporting data; but it will be marketplaces that will enable companies to build sustainable businesses and crack open the incumbent data monopolies. IOTA, SEED and now Ocean are unlocking data for more equitable outcomes for users.
FX Trading e amizades duvidosas - EU NÃO AGUENTO MAIS
É o seguinte: eu tenho um amigo mais ou menos próximo que NÃO PARA de me encher o saco com essa m*rda de FX Trading e o quão maravilhosa essa "oportunidade" é. Ele diz que a empresa é PERFEITA e é o "maior atalho" para ficar rico, fala que é uma "empresa transformadora" e que é "questão de acreditar". Estou MUITO de saco cheio com esses "atalhos". Sou bem novo e já invisto em bolsa, mas uma coisa eu aprendi: NÃO EXISTE ATALHO. Não existe atalho no esporte, não existe atalho nos estudos e não existe atalho nos investimentos. Os caras oferecem lucros de 400% em 12 meses, com não-sei-quantos % por dia. Por favor, né? Funciona com bot operando bitcoins e sistema de reivindicação (rs) ou "marketing de pessoas", como ele mesmo falou. "O projeto é tão bom que a gente não pode deixar de falar pra ninguém". Vai pra merda. Não sei como despachar esse cara, já recusei fazer o meu "pré-cadastro" na empresa, fora que ele me convida toda semana pra umas duas reuniões (on-line e presenciais), já fui em uma e odiei, grande perda de tempo. Estou puto DE VERDADE e espero que uma hora ele pare de me ligar, pois chega a ser constrangedor ficar recusando toda hora. Obrigado pra quem leu esse desabafo. Boa noite. edit: formatação.
User RICARD676 sent me zelle from a hacked account on 4/5/2019 for $1000. Now BoA has frozen my account and charged me $888,888.88. DO NOT TRADE WITH HIM. I have filed a report to local bitcoins but he is still active as of now. https://localbitcoins.com/accounts/profile/ricard676/
Ferramenta gratuita (ou mais barata) que o Trading View para iniciantes em trading
Pessoal, sou do mundo das criptomoedas há alguns anos. Conheci o Bitcoin quando era extremamente desvalorizado e pouquíssimos já tinha ouvido falar da moeda, mas infelizmente demorei anos para fazer minha primeira compra. Na época meu poder aquisitivo era bem limitado, o que me deixa bastante chateado hoje em dia com as oportunidades perdidas. De qualquer forma mesmo tendo perdido o bonde dos early-adopters, eu até que obtive lucros bons com as criptomoedas. Nada excpecional pois meus investimentos foram baixos, mas obtive uma taxa de lucro bem boa, comparado a investimentos mais tradicionais. No entanto, ressalto que os lucros que obtive com o tempo tem muito mais a ver com sorte por ter entrado em determinadas ativos antes de hyparem, e por ter segurado, do que por ter feito trading. Entendo nada ou quase nada de trading. Ultimamente, no entanto, tenho me interessado bastante sobre o assunto, e pretendo reservar uma parcela do meu portfólio que está alocado em holding para trading (estou pretendendo começar com algo entre 10% - 20% do que tenho holdado). Um amigo meu me emprestou um curso que ele comprou de um especialista em mercado financeiro tradicional. São várias horas de curso, e pretendo assistir e me dedicar. A questão é: qual ferramenta devo utilizar para iniciar meus estudos trading? Parece lógico dizer que o Trading View, muitos o utilizam e parece mesmo ser um dos melhores. No entanto, encontrei algumas limitações. As funções oferecidas pela versão gratuita da plataforma são bastante limitadas, e as versões premium são divididas entre 3 planos, cada um com determinados benefícios. Como sou iniciante no trading, não sei exatamente quais os benefícios principais que devo procurar em serviços como esse. Me corrijam se eu estiver errado, mas acredito que as principais sejam: - Possibilidade de salvar maior número de gráficos; - Adicionar maior número de indicadores; e - Maior número de alertas. Dado isso, eu teria que assinar algum plano premium, já que o gratuito é extremamente limitado quanto a esses pontos. Os dois primeiros planos são de 15 e 30 dólares por mes, o que estou achando um pouco elevado pra quem está pretendendo utilizar a plataforma mais para aprender, e posteriormente começar a tradar somente 10% a 20% do portfólio. O que voces sugerem nesse caso? Existe alguma plataforma gratuita ou mais em conta (mesmo que com outras limitações) que seria mais adequada do que o Trading View para meus objetivos? No caso de indicarem o Trading View mesmo, acha que somente 5 gráficos salvos, 5 indicadores por gráfico, e ausencia de "gráficos intradiários Renko, Kagi, Quebras de linha e Ponto & Figura" são o suficiente para um iniciante começar na análise técnica e arriscar seus primeiros tradings? Desde já agradeço.
This week in crypto: The biggest news in the cryptocurrency space
News by Coingeek: Noah Bradley As active as the blockchain and cryptocurrency spaces are on a continual basis, it may sometimes be difficult to keep up with everything that’s going on. It’s also difficult to separate the real news from the fluff — those pieces that are only designed to appear noteworthy but that are, in fact, just publicity campaigns. In an effort to provide crypto enthusiasts with an overview of what’s going on, here is a rundown on some of the top stories of the week. Bitfinex and Tether have had another rough week. There was some good news, as well as bad, as the saga over their close relationship and questionable activities continues. On the one hand, Bitfinex has been told by a judge that it won’t have to turn over documents related to those activities for now. The New York Attorney General’s Office wants to know exactly what the two have been doing behind closed doors, and they’re fighting the office over its reported lack of jurisdiction. Until a request to have the case dismissed over those jurisdiction claims can be answered by a judge, Bitfinex can ignore the request. On the other hand, though, neither of the two entities should think that it’s off the hook. While they have been given a brief reprieve in the fight with the New York government, they face a separate one with New York investors. A law firm in the state, Roche Freedman, has filed a class-action suit against Tether for its “fraudulent” stablecoin scheme. Tether’s USDT stablecoin is no longer pegged to the U.S. dollar, as it had been advertised, and the company is accused of using its position to manipulate the crypto market. Alipay was forced to take a defensive stance this week after rumors started circulating that it was now accepting crypto payments. This would have been against the Alibaba-owned payment platform’s own rules and would, according to the company, possibly violate payment financial regulations. Alipay has a strict no-crypto policy that doesn’t permit the platform to be tied in any way to digital currencies. The announcement came after the Binance exchange stated publicly that it was now able to receive fiat payments using Alipay, via a third-party processor, which didn’t sit well with Alibaba. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rejected yet another rule change proposal that sought to introduce a crypto-based exchange-traded fund (ETF). This one had been submitted by Bitwise Asset Management and the NYSE Arca exchange at the beginning of the year, and received the same response as have the myriad of other requests — the possibility of market manipulation prevents the SEC from signing off on the proposal. Bitwise has indicated that it might try again, but at a much later date. On October 6, Bitcoin SV (BSV) reached a new milestone. A review of blockchain activity revealed that BSV had surpassed BTC in the total number of transactions per day. That day, BSV saw 290,000 transactions, while BTC saw 288,000. One of the biggest reasons for the increase comes from the difference in transaction fees. An average BTC transaction will set someone back around $51.42, while the average cost for a BSV transaction is just $0.31. If there were any questions about how Bank of America (BoA) views the future of digital currency, things were just cleared up a little. BoA had long been a staunch opponent to anything having to do with crypto, but then began to seek blockchain patents and explore the fringes of the Bitcoin ecosystem. Its latest move leaves zero doubt about what is coming, as it has recently completed a recruitment action that was launched to find a Ripple expert to work in-house. The individual, according to BoA’s LinkedIn job posting, would “lead the project management team for the Ripple Project.” Lichtenstein is still determined to be a leading financial hub, even if that hub centers on digital currency and not fiat. The country’s Parliament just approved a new Blockchain Act, which will give better protection to companies and investors, and will almost certain attract a lot of activity to the mid-Europe country.
Vocês sabem que está havendo uma guerra comercial ridícula entre China e EUA. No início de agosto Donald Trump colocou uma enorme taxação em bens Chineses. A China como retaliação anunciou nesta sexta feira 23/08 novos impostos sobre produtos americanos. E obviamente o Trump não gostou e como uma criança, no mesmo dia anunciou um aumento das taxas sobre os produtos Chineses. Eu imaginei que após essas declarações iria dar um boom no Bitcoin, mas não foi o que aconteceu. A bolsa despencou, o dolar subiu, as moedas emergentes depreciaram, mas o valor do Bitcoin não foi afetado. Penso que uma boa explicação é que mesmo o mundo todo já tendo escutado falar sobre o Bitcoin, ainda assim poucas pessoas conhecem seu real valor e o seu verdadeiro potencial. Muitos estão utilizado a crypto apenas para Trading. Mas quando o fim do ciclo econômico chegar de vez, vai ser quando a moeda terá mais um BOOM e o mundo também ^^
Boas pessoal! Ontem apareceu me, por via da sogra, uma “oportunidade de investimento” que garante 200% de lucro em Forex com a Bitcoin através desta FC Trading Corporation. Ora quando me começa a explicar este negócio, eu já desconfiada porque pelo que leio o mercado não pode GARANTIR 200%, surge um tópico de “ah e tal metes uma pessoa e recebes a partir dela” ok... isso não é Ponzi? Pergunto eu, ilegal by the way. Ela parou, pensou e respondeu “não sei vamos lá ver o meu dinheiro já lá está e agora só posso tirar daqui a 200 dias”. Suspeito não? Mega lavagem de dinheiro? Pagas para entrar, recebes quando metes alguém (+% de lucros das pessoas abaixo de ti) e ainda és obrigado a esperar 200 dias para levantar o teu dinheiro? Sem nenhum contrato assinado? Como sempre faço com tudo na vida, pesquisei. O que encontrei não foi favorável.. mas bem, não sou expert no assunto mas que cheira mal, isso cheira. Any thoughts? Obrigada!
With the launch of new exchanges Vertpig and Vertbase (coming soon), we as a community must play our part to help adoption!
First and foremost, nothing I say is intended to be investment or trading advice. The following is simply some thoughts and opinions on why I support Vertcoin and why I think it's more important now than ever for us all to know how we can contribute. It wasn't much, but I have donated a little bit to our funds and have been running a public node since January. VTC is a significant portion of my portfolio and I have continued to buy and mine it throughout my time in this community. I want to help Vertcoin in any way that I can. I know that I play a very small role currently but I am posting to spark some discussion as to what we can do to help these exchanges grow, help our developers who work tirelessly, and increase public awareness of the benefits Vertcoin holds. I strongly support decentralization and believe that in the not so distant future we will see the collapse of the current banking model. Some believe that banks will be obsolete while many believe that banks will adapt and eventually play ball. I am more inclined to think that certain banks will adopt block chain technology (not just file patents like BOA) and the ones that will collapse are those who refuse to adapt at all. Even if the banks adopt crypto or create their own, it leaves a third party to trust with your money. The point of cryptocurrency in short is to prevent censorship from governments and banks and give the user full control of their money. We need coins like Vertcoin that stand against centralization and give power back to the public. A lot of people outside the Vertcoin community dismiss VTC as "just a BTC/LTC clone" or "a LTC fork". They leave out how centralized BTC and LTC have become. There is a lot of drama circling the BTC community. Unless you're new to cryptocurrency or are new to the subs here on Reddit, you are aware of how much controversy there is. I don't have to go into it. Even with LTC somewhat recently, there was drama when Charlie sold his position in his own project. This is not a discussion on those issues, but it is something I've noticed since I got into crypto last August. Before discovering VTC, I bought a few LTC and planned to keep buying until I landed on here. What drew me to it? Vertcoin was just as fast- with an active and devoted team of developers, a strong community and most importantly: ASIC Resistance. In a midst of the Ethereum ICO craze, where just about any idea you could imagine became a token, I stumbled upon a green coin which I thought was new as well. Turns out, I was wrong. Not only had Vertcoin been around since 2014, but it was a fork of Litecoin, which I had already purchased. This is when I really learned about ASICs and how VTC devs had already forked VTC twice to change the algorithm. This told me they were dedicated to decentralization. I continued to skim different communities and became even more bullish on VTC because most all other coins I read about still had no working product or the communities were shilling or toxic. For the others I thought were still decent, I discovered they also had ASIC miners, so I stayed away. I wanted to buy, hold, spend, and mine a coin that is a true crytpo by Satoshis standards. To mine Bitcoin or Litecoin, and a few other coins - you have to use an ASIC Miner which increases efficiency but comes with an up front cost that is not attainable by most. Prices become lower as new generations come out, but by then that model will be obsolete and wouldn't break even. This creates centralization because the average person can no longer afford to mine. The very fundamentals of Bitcoin and distributed ledger technology go against this because today's system is broken and this was suppose to be a way to give us full control over our money. The elite has decided how we handle our money for as long as any of us can remember and cryptocurrency was created to give us a say. As we can see in the BTC community, there is divide on several different issues, mining is concentrated mostly in China, and for a while fees climbed so high, the network became unusable to the average person. By average, I mean people from first to third world nations who may or not have banks, who were told that they could be their own bank. The typical person buying in to make money ends up selling short due to buying at peaks and not doing their due diligence, whereas the crypto enthusiast who wants the world to adopt finds out s/he cannot easily start mining Bitcoin, run a full Bitcoin node to support the network, or send btc payments without paying an exhuberant amount in fees, etc. That is one of the reasons they start supporting Altcoins and continue to look for a coin that really follows the fundamentals of Satoshis vision for peer to peer currency. In a centralized economy, the wealthy and elite continue to accumulate and hold power to influence or make decisions that only benefit them. They're also able to provoke irrational market movements by manipulating the market. Having Fiat onramps is a great step in the right direction, but it is only one piece of the puzzle. We have a lot of friction right now and we need to help build the momentum that will finally get us going. A lot of folks expected the price to spike up immediately but there are several reasons why it hasn't. First of all, BTC is still the leader. It will most likely always have first mover advantage and is still the main pairing on most exchanges. When the masses are asked about blockchain or distributed ledger, the first word that comes to mind is Bitcoin. It will take a while to detach from BTC's movements. Secondly - Volume. Vertpig can only be listed on CMC once it reaches $1,000,000.00 trading volume. That means if you're in the UK, you should be following the necessary steps to register, get verified and begin to utilize the platform. Start using Vertpig like you would use GDAX. Start with small amounts until you're comfortable with how their interface works, and then set maker orders in order to buy your next bag of VTC with your Fiat instead of using Coinbase or Gemini. The volume won't climb if you're not willing to use the platform. Detachment from BTC won't happen quickly and it will not happen solely because we have fiat on ramps. If you're in the US like myself, you're probably waiting on Vertbase to launch. I know that if all goes well, I will only buy Vertcoin from Vertbase for future purposes. I get taxed enough, so there will be no need to create unnecessary taxable events. (Buying BTC on Coinbase, transferring to exchange to buy VTC - taxed twice). Also, when registering for and using these exchanges, make sure you are preventing potential issues. There will likely be hiccups down the road and some technical issues, but user error still accounts for a good amount of problems. Remember to use only sole bank account, not joint accounts with your hubby/wife as the mismatching names create funding issues (look at Coinbase for my main example) and to only invest what you are ok with losing. That last part is investing 101, but crypto is much more of a gamble so do your due diligence before making decisions. Never buy, sell or trade based off emotion. Most likely you will regret whatever you did, and lose even more money by exiting a position that you FOMOd into, or buy and hold more than you can afford to lose. Just because we will have fiat onramps does not mean that volume and price will skyrocket and Vertcoin will take over the world, etc. There is something we can all do to pitch it and help this community grow and If you're technically savvy, you can reach out to the dev team and see if your skill set can be utilized. I know the devs are considered "part time" by some, but I know from being here the last half year that they are very involved and it's very much a full time gig. This is why I suggested that if you have technical skills and a little bit of time to contribute, to reach out to the devs. If you have marketing experience and can help Canen and the marketing team with new ideas and approaches, I am sure they are open to at least listen/read them. The wonderful part about Reddit, about the crypto community, is how much the average person can contribute. This is for the people, after all. If you're an entrepreneur - are you accepting crypto as payment? And if so, have you found a way to accept Vertcoin? Acceptance by business is probably the fastest way to spread adoption because it supports using a currency how it should be: as a currency. I am very excited for the future of Vertcoin and the future of crypto in general. I invite others to suggest any ideas they have that can contribute to the growth of our community. I want to thank the devs for being so dedicated and always showing transparency. Thank you to the marketing team for helping to maintain a professional image and playing your role. And thank you to those who are already accepting Vertcoin for their business. Cheers to the future, fellow Vertans!
Merchants requiring Coinbase accounts are a real turn off
I'm a casual BTC user who makes occasional transactions and I'm really unreleased with the direction BTC has been going which feels more and more forced into Coinbase. Rather than being decentralized it feels like Coinbase is the new BoA or Wells Fargo and we are beholden to them. First Circle goes down and Coinbase is the only other alternative for casual users, I tried everything else. Now merchants who only needed funds sent from a wallet are forcing us to use Coinbase, the most recent I encountered being eGifter. Many people like me who got into BTC find a service and if it works we stick with it. Now I need to just deal with Coinbase or go out of my way to find reputable alternatives which is time I don't want to spend. Not to mention I need to send funds from my wallet to Coinbase to make transaction which is onerous and time consuming. I wouldn't mind if Coinbase was a joy to use, it's anything but though. Tiny limits are forced on new users and their support system is a pain. But my biggest gripe is how delayed everything is. Nothing at Coinbase feels instant or predictable. Everything is a "wait and see" or check back throughout the day. tl;dr from a casual user bitcoin seems to be going in the wrong direction from a year ago where casual users are being pushed toward a centralized Coinbase which feels like a bank and transactions are becoming cumbersome to perform and complete. it feels like BTC is becoming a trading currency and not the future of eCommerce.
So my mind really gets me into trouble sometimes. Just know that I am thinking out loud among yourselves and the community. I am American. So what if... Let's say a government, doesn't have to be the U.S., gets fed up with crypto and how it "is capable" of funding terrorists, drugs, and the myriad of other illegal activities and bans anonymity. Meaning that any exchange based in their country must secure identification before transactions can be made, AND, cannot be associated with any other anonymous exchanges. That's pretty big. Now think about this. Look man, Ripple ain't no joke, backed by fucking Google and has customers like BOA and Santander and 75 other huge banks They'll already be ahead of the game. So lets say that Ripple is like ok, pull XRP from any anonymous exchange. Done. XRP value on those exchanges may plummet, and it may plummet across the board as well. Until people realize that XRP is exclusive. The network will only consist of TRUSTED affiliates, banks, etc. Ripple is talking about spreading their nodes to trusted universities, the govt, hospitals, etc. How in the fuck can any shitcoin compete with that. They're trusting some guy in his basement mining coins. Anyways, so President Trump comes up and says, yep, we're banning any crypto that is traded on anonymous networks in any other country. Well ripple already has their shit together so, that's were they can become exclusive. Remember, the only value in a coin is who backs it. The bank backs my dollar and they are backed by the US govt. Only exchanges back shitcoins. Remember what happened at Mt Gox? So I was visiting Polo's twitter today, it was almost strictly posts about how they're getting attacked, DDOSd and how their system was down. Take a look. Now visit Ripples twitter and Gatehub, only stories of success and problems with too many people trying to open/access accounts. No mention of hacks, stolen coins, DDOS, etc. Here's a question, so if banks are going to use XRP, will they back it? I would assume they will have to. They use it, so in a perfect world I could transfer XRP to my bank account into dollars. That's when it becomes real. Ripple already has a head start on everyone when it comes to the banks and the banks have the money, not some shitty exchange that can disappear (Mt Gox) overnight with your untraceable shitcoins. Unlike most traders, I want some sort of centralization, someone responsible. Someone that has the ability to change things. However, it must still be a community that is based on majority vote and I believe that's what Ripple is going for. So, if governments prevent exchanges on their soil from accepting or transferring coins tied to anonymous exchanges in other countries, it will be the fall of bitcoin and the rise of any tied to vetted exchanges. My opinion, Ripple and XRP will only be available to banks and government approved exchanges. It will be the equivalent of US dollars worldwide. Anyways, if you have thoughts to share I would love to hear them.
Boyfriend got severe Bitcoin fraud, now the bank is saying he owes $10,000. Advice please.
I'm not sure where to post this. This is going to sound stupid, I know. My boyfriend saw an online work from home ad where you make $800 dollars a week plus 1% of every transaction fee for a international advertising company. It gave him a hire letter and asked for his BoA information for "direct deposit". This is the breakdown of his job: They wire the money into his account He trades the money for BitCoins He withdraws the money and then transfers it to Bitcoin buyers Anyways, today he finds out the transaction was reversed but because he withdrew the money the Bank wants he to pay it back. He is talking to the fraud department but they want him to pay it back because they aren't going to be able to trace where the money originally came from. Any advice? Is there any action he can take to not owe that money? Thank you guys! EDIT: He has been on the phone with the bank all day...But after many calls, and many bank representatives, he is in the clear. Because he called so early this morning they were able to reverse the $10,000 to where he does not owe it. We were both freaking out this morning and I told him if there was one place we would get helpful advice...well it would definitely be reddit. Thank you guys for your help!

Aqui não me posiciono altista nem baixista, pois o cenário está incompleto. Esse 2018 foi um ano de extrema baixa e desde Janeiro temos uma LTB bem definida por vários traders aqui no TradingView, aparentemente após a euforia vendedora do Ano Novo o preço estabilizou a tendência de baixa. Usando a ferramenta de canal paralelo, pude encontrar o canal de baixa dessa tendência ainda usando escala logarítmica. Viés Baixista Meu viés baixista sustenta-se nesse canal de baixa que segue até o suporte determinado pelo maior topo aparente em meados de 2013. Além do nível de interesse comprador aos 1000 dólares. Lembrando que a tendência no gráfico é de baixa, o preço pode por repetidas vezes buscar a LTB dando viés de bulltrap para holders. Neste caso quem melhor se beneficia são os scalpers e day traders. Viés Altista Vejo uma boa tendência compradora no nível de interesse de 3000 dólares, na faixa verde do gráfico. Considero um ponto de potencial reversão, mas é imprescindível ter muito cuidado antes de comprar Bitcoins. Efetivamente 6200 é o ponto onde se rompido o Bitcoin prova ter força suficiente de alta. Conclusão O Bitcoin tem força vendedora para buscar 1000 dólares fácil, mas pode apresentar padrões de reversão aos 3000 dólares. Zona segura de comprar acima de 6200.

Boas Pessoal! Na sequência no AMA que fiz recentemente e do elevado interesse que houve em saber mais sobre a Bitcoin criamos uma comunidade de BTC portuguesa no Slack. Já somos 60 e tem sido uma experiência muito engraçada. Se não me engano um dos nosso membros já fez, numa das suas primeiras trades, um profit perto de 700 euros (sem querer parecer um infomercial). Se alguém tiver interesse em bitcoin e/ou altcoins e quiser juntar-se a uma comunidade porreira deixo aqui o link onde podem auto-convidar-se para o slack: https://btcportugal.herokuapp.com/
With 2017 coming to an end, we wanted to provide the community with some updates regarding what is on the horizon for Blocknet in 2018, but first let’s take a look at what this community has accomplished so far. 2017 was a busy year for Blocknet! With the launch of the new production chain, the Service nodes launch on mainnet, the partnership with VSA to build the Blocknet UI (as well as the UI Reveal) and the implementation of the Community Governance System, it has been a very productive year. This is what was achieved… Blocknet in review 2017:
Service nodes launch on mainnet.
Implementation of the Community Governance System.
Thanks to the quick work of @ftriboix, integration of Ethereum and all ERC20 tokens is now roughly 50% complete!
The DX API, which is being worked on by the DX Tool Team and the Euro Team, is currently 75% complete with many improvements.
The DX UI, which is being developed by VSA Partners is 75% compete.
The DX UI integration, which requires the DX API to be complete, is now expected to be completed in January. This is a slight delay from what was hoped, but we believe it is better to delay a release than to make compromises.
Integration and successful trades of 10 additional verified supported coins. These will be announced soon!
Blocknet Wiki is being worked on by Baron and Philip Marshall which is approximately 50% complete.
A Blocknet DX visual explorer is being worked on by @infinity7592 and is now 25% complete.
API documentation auto-generation is 50% complete and will soon be accessible through a web page.
Coinmarketcap updated to source link to the new Github repo and added a link to Rocket Chat and Telegram. Telegram has seen a 10% growth in members in the past week!
Community representatives have been selected by the community. They are @stormingj and @thebaron.
Multisig accounts still need to be tested. Until reliable functionality can be certain, the community funds will be held in regular accounts. The spending of these funds will still go through a 4-of-7 approval process consisting of Dan(atcsecure), Arlyn(synechist), Michael(michael), Jeff(86b), Hanni(hanniabu), Justice(@stormingj), and Baron(@thebaron).
The community-driven marketing group is taking form with the addition of #marketing-investors, #marketing-users, #marketing-developers, #designers, #video, #events, #pr, #documentation, #support, #support-users, and #support-developers. This separation of groups will help the community better organize initiatives as well as allow for an influx of new members.
What is on the Horizon for Blocknet in 2018? Moving forward into 2018 there are many exciting developments to look forward to:

We should pirate the entire piratebay.org website and all it's functionality directly on to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. The piratebay.org is just magnet links and comments. Then they will say bcash stole our business ... (232 points, 439 comments)

The retard tribalism is so real. SBI japan's financial giant says they will launch a platform with BCH as settlement coin (due to BTC being bad) and XRP as remittances. I provide the link and cryptocurrency shills deny plain literally declared fact. (124 points, 50 comments)

BCH could really be missing the new big use case. Gamers would love to have real ownership of game items. The first game which will integrate a digital coin and make it popular will be groundbreaking. (141 points, 76 comments)
