Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Bitcoin Newcomers FAQ - Please read!

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

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.
It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Some other great resources include Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series.
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.
Some Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here.
Potential upcoming protocol improvements and scaling resources here and here.
The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!)

Key properties of Bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
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.
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 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.
Google Auth Authy OTP Auth
Android Android N/A
iOS iOS iOS

Watch out for scams

As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".

Where can I spend bitcoins?

Check out spendabit or bitcoin directory for millions of merchant options. Also you can spend bitcoin anywhere visa is accepted with bitcoin debit cards such as the CashApp card. Some other useful site are listed below.

If you are interested in accepting bitcoin as a payment method, there are several options available;

Can I mine bitcoin?

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. If you would prefer to keep it simple there are several good options. You can view the global node distribution here.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
bitcoin BTC 1 bitcoin one bitcoin is equal to 100 million satoshis
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin used as default unit in recent Electrum wallet releases
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin (μBTC)
satoshi sat 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:

tl;dr: Do you believe your Ethereum scaling technology can handle Reddit's scale? It's time to let the Ethereum community hear about it. Send your demo by July 31, 2020.
This is your chance to earn some fame but, to be clear, there is no prize if your solution is chosen or modified to meet Reddit’s needs. Our lawyer made us write this.
https://preview.redd.it/q7hhi6lzlp551.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=cdb26cbbe59e26f4fc73da5740da1308e2a87579

The Goal

In conjunction with the Ethereum Foundation, Reddit is inviting Ethereum scaling projects to show the community how your scaling solution can be used to bring Community Points to mainnet. Our goal is to find a solution that will support hundreds of thousands of Community Points users on mainnet today, and can eventually scale to all of Reddit (430 million monthly users).
We’ve evaluated some of the most promising scaling solutions, and have learned a few things:
  1. There are plenty of awesome projects that we don't know about yet. We seem to learn about a promising new scaling solution every day.
  2. Most existing scaling solutions focus on the exchange use case, which favors optimizing for transfers. Many of these designs don't take into consideration the costs of obtaining tokens or entering the scaling system, which can be significant. Community Points distributions have cost an order of magnitude more gas than all other operations combined, primarily due to on-chain storage costs associated with onboarding new users.
  3. It's unclear how to determine the best solution. There is a lot of code, a lot of documentation, and a lot of hype out there. But there are very few objective real-world reviews or comparisons of various products/implementations.
  4. We need the Ethereum community's help to figure this out.
Do you have a scaling project that meets the criteria below? If so, share your demo by July 31, 2020. Please note that all demos need to simulate Community Points usage for 100,000 users.
We also invite all scaling experts in the Ethereum community to comment on any demos submitted to enable a better understanding of the trade-offs and compromises between different solutions.
We will review the demos and plan to share any updates by September. While we don’t expect any novel scaling projects, we hope that you, the Ethereum scaling expert, can show us how to scale Community Points.
Demos should include:
  1. A live proof of concept showing hundreds of thousands of transactions
  2. Source code (for on & off-chain components as well tooling used for the PoC). The source code does not have to be shared publicly, but if Reddit decides to use a particular solution it will need to be shared with Reddit at some point
  3. Documentation
    1. How it works & scales
    2. Cost estimates (on-chain and off-chain)
    3. How to run it
    4. Architecture
    5. APIs (on chain & off)
    6. Known issues or tradeoffs
  4. Summary of cost & resource information for both on-chain & off-chain components used in the PoC, as well as cost & resource estimates for further scaling. If your PoC is not on mainnet, make note of any mainnet caveats (such as congestion issues).

Requirements

Scaling. This PoC should scale to the numbers below with minimal costs (both on & off-chain). There should also be a clear path to supporting hundreds of millions of users.
  • Over a 5 day period, your scaling PoC should be able to handle:
    • 100,000 point claims (minting & distributing points)
    • 25,000 subscriptions
    • 75,000 one-off points burning
    • 100,000 transfers
Decentralization. Solutions should not depend on any single third-party provider.
  • We prefer solutions that do not depend on specific entities such as Reddit or another provider, and solutions with no single point of control or failure in off-chain components, but recognize there are numerous trade-offs to consider
Usability. Scaling solutions should have a simple end user experience.
  • Users shouldn't have to maintain any extra state/proofs, regularly monitor activity, keep track of extra keys, or sign anything other than their normal transactions
  • Transactions complete in a reasonable amount of time (seconds or minutes, not hours or days)
  • Free to use for end users (no gas fees, or fixed/minimal fees that Reddit can pay on their behalf)
  • Bonus points:
    • Users should be able to view their balances & transactions via a blockchain explorer-style interface
    • Exiting is fast & simple
Interoperability. Compatibility with third party apps (wallets/contracts/etc) is necessary.
  • Scaling solutions should be extensible and allow third parties to build on top of it
  • APIs should be well documented and stable
  • Documentation should be clear and complete
  • Third-party permissionless integrations should be possible & straightforward
  • Simple is better. Learning an uncommon or proprietary language should not be necessary. Advanced knowledge of mathematics, cryptography, or L2 scaling should not be required. Compatibility with common utilities & toolchains is expected.
  • Bonus Points: Show us how it works. Do you have an idea for a cool new use case for Community Points? Build it!
Security. Users have full ownership & control of their points.
  • Balances and transactions cannot be forged, manipulated, or blocked by Reddit or anyone else
  • Users should own their points and be able to get on-chain ERC20 tokens without permission from anyone else
  • Points should be recoverable to on-chain ERC20 tokens even if all third-parties involved go offline
  • A public, third-party review attesting to the soundness of the design should be available
  • Bonus points:
    • Public, third-party implementation review available or in progress
    • Compatibility with HSMs & hardware wallets
Other Considerations
  • Minting/distributing tokens is not performed by Reddit directly [1]
  • One off point burning, as well as recurring, non-interactive point burning (for subreddit memberships [2]) should be possible and scalable
  • Fully open-source solutions are strongly preferred
[1] In the current implementation, Reddit provides signed data for claims, but does not submit the actual claim transaction for the user (the user does that themselves). Note that smart contracts are considered independent of Reddit provided there is a path to decentralizing control over them.
[2] Subreddit memberships are currently implemented as a contract acting as an ERC777-style operator that can burn points on a monthly basis, but we are open to changing that implementation.

Community Points Overview

To help you get started, this is an overview of how Community Points work today and some stats on how it's used. We are open to changing most implementation details, provided the basic requirements (above) are met.

Usage stats over the past month

Number of Community Points holders: ~17,500
Number of transfers: ~20,000
(reference: reddit.dappradar.com)
Number of subreddit memberships: ~800

Contracts

Community Points is built around 3 contracts:
  1. SubredditPoints: the ERC20 token
  2. Distributions: manages token supply & token claims
  3. Subscriptions: enables membership subscriptions in the form of recurring token burn

Points Distribution & Claims

Token supply is controlled by distribution rounds managed in the Distributions contract and triggered by Reddit. For each round (occurring ~monthly), Reddit submits a proposal for points distribution to a subreddit for approval. Once approved, Reddit issues signed claims for individual users according to the agreed upon points distribution. These claims can be redeemed on-chain. Claims are obtained from Reddit, and submitted to the Distributions contract, which validates the claim and calls the Subreddit Points contract to mint points.

Memberships

Subreddit memberships are obtained by burning points via the Subscriptions contract. Redditors can optionally configure their membership to be renewable on a monthly basis without additional interaction. The Subscriptions contract is granted permission to burn points by being configured as an ERC777-style default operator in the Subreddit Points contract.

Loan Repayment - 32K USD Nexo Loan Horror Story

Story time from somebody who wanted to test out Nexo loans.
Feel free to share thoughts in the comments below, but the purpose of this story is just to serve as a warning for anybody considering a serious Nexo loan (like 20k+) be prepared for crazy fees, and extreme difficultly paying back the loan in USD to avoid fees as an American.
I put about 100k USDC to try out Nexo. 8% interest was going well, and it was all pretty cool. I read on all the DeFi lending opportunities (significantly higher interest) and started deploying that capital across a few projects to test and see which are legit etc. (For those of you curious, after a month of research, on the yield side of things, I decided adding liquidity to Uniswap's ETH-USDC pool is appropriate for my risk appetite, and that the APY is 30%+. On the loan side of things, Maker DAO's ETH CDP loans are 0% currently, instant and painless. Its really an amazing experience.)
I also decided to test out the different loan providers (meaning I took out loans) on the DeFi side of things as well as the Nexo side of things. I had about 35k USDC leftover in Nexo with almost the max I could borrow (~32k?)
And then the nightmare began.
  1. Originally I assumed that I would be collecting interest on all my assets in Nexo, but there's the two different wallets (savings, and credit) so of course no more interest yield anymore when I tried doing a loan. Ok.
  2. I learned that Nexo market sells the crypto you use for loan repayment on some unknown exchange they refused to tell me "for security reasons." Try market selling 32k of crypto, you're gonna have slippage on pretty much every market I can think of. Ok... The reason why letting me know what exchange is so that I can calculate the slippage on my order on the market they would sell on and decide if I want to continue with the repayment method or not.
  3. Nexo charges a fee for the sell order (0.26% if I recall correctly from one of my many customer support conversations.) Well thats getting pretty scammy, in my opinion.
  4. Only after I tried repaying the loan (as opposed to before taking a loan) Nexo kindly informs us on the dashboard UI that they will automatically charge the full first month of loan interest "so that the loan system is used as intended" or something like that. Icing on the cake. Seems unnecessary to me. Nice.
About three weeks go by and now I'm in a bind trying to pay this back, because I could realistically be looking at 2-3% in slippage, 0.26% in transaction fee, and about 1% in loan interest after the first month here. That's about $1,363.20 in costs out the gates for a 32k loan, which was not made clear before pulling out the loan. I had to find bits and pieces of this over my many customer support conversations.
Fine. So I start researching how to make this cheaper. So I decide, hey, I'll repay in USD because no slippage, no transaction fee. That removes tons of ambiguity. This is the perfect solution.
...
Nexo says that ACH transfers have to be done from an account matching my name exactly. I bank with one of the biggest US banks (I'll leave out those details so my bank doesn't get social engineered!) they say that ACH is only available under my business account (with of course, my business's name not my personal name) so I must use the "bill pay" feature, which normally does "echecks" if the recipient is "in the system." With my luck, Nexo was not, so they had to cut a physical check. Ok.
7 full days go by, my bank said they cancelled the check because I didn't confirm it. Turns out I had the notification for this specific thing disabled. That sucked. Okay I try again. Meanwhile, almost every day since the second check was sent I followed up with my bank to make sure things work out smoothly.
Okay, great, check is to arrive Friday the 21st.
Friday the 21st comes, and I follow up with Nexo support. They basically say "hey well for checks we physically have to go through them and everybody is out of office now...so you'll have to wait another 2-3 business days."
I was pissed at this point but told them okay and that I'll follow up. Bear in mind I'm accruing another month of interest, which increases the pressure for me here.
So I follow up on Monday and they say they haven't gotten anything, and that I need "official information" on the details of the check. I tell them everything I can read off the bank's app and they say its not good enough.
I check with my bank and they say its delivered. I ask my bank if they can deal with Nexo directly, and they said yeah over the phone. I also ask for "official details" on the payment and the bank provides that for me. Great.
I go back to Nexo and below is the latest correspondence. What I want to point out here is how dodgy I think the support is, and how they make 0 concessions on extreme cases such as mine. I think this was the seventh support person I spoke with during the entire repayment. Every conversation went similar to this, but with me being more and more irate.

Yikes... Loopring and Solana disappeared like a dissident under stalin

Final update!
About 30 hours after the LRC and Solana were delisted and disappeared on wee hours August 17, so now we're talking Aug 18th morning, I received two USDT credits in my account. This was in the form of "Adjustment (Credit)" and for some amount unexplained. We can assume it's whatever amount CDC decided was the best solution for each coin. I had both previously. No way to see the process and exchange rates as all Solana and LRC info was wiped from my app interface, but we can assume they kept it in the back end.
Aug 18th late evening I got an email explaining the swap. Email in imgur link. They said they swapped it at USD market value at the moment it was delisted. This was what I thought was the best recourse as shown below in my OP. So kudos!
I wish my account transaction history kept this info, but guys remember not your keys, not your coins. CDC claims several compliance, security, and due diligence certifications from third party sources on their website, but I haven't fully looked into the orgs or processes providing this. Was overly trusting ;).
The question is DO YOU TRUST CDC? My answer: tentatively. Though they didn't communicate with us on the app or here on the reddit, they might have been more supportive on the official telegram and discord. I'm not sure, but I will be joining those. And thanks Bryan for jumping around and doing your best to quell our fears.
Waiting on my Jade Green card that should arrive any day.
May all our coins go to the moon!
Sorry I didn't do this yesterday (I'm often deep in the woods out of cell service... until Mr Must StarLinks the world).
OP --------
It's unfortunate that crypto.com had to delist them, but to disappear them without even a notification is absolutely bonkers. Unfortunately it does lend believability to the horror stories we sometimes see here about accounts being locked out and no support response for days, weeks, etc. I’m pretty disappointed but I hope they’ll hit us back with CRO at an exchange price for the MOMENT these coins became inaccessible in the crypto.com US app...
That’s the closest thing to stand-up way to resolve this. I guess we’ll see their current colors IF we get a statement from them explaining what happened.
EDIT: added imgur link for those who want to see what it looks like from an app that used to have SOL and LRC. Note balance from these coins is still in the wallet, but the coin entries are absent.
Adding for historical purposes, too. I am not a crypto.com hater. I want it to succeed as much as the next defi-fetish technoaccelerationist. But its lack of transparency and user friendliness is a self-inflicted shot in the foot. I bought in thinking eh it wont happen to me. But hey! Two weeks in and boom. They keep bragging about hiring literally hundreds of more people, but it's not showing on the front end. The employee commenting and doing his best in the forum is a nice... delay of our angst. But he legit said “close the app and open it again” in the other thread, showing he is in the dark. Either they're having organization-wide confusion or have no interest in easing our concerns. this happened last night after I went to bed. They've had 12+ hours to draft and release a quick “apologies we’ll sort it out no worries” but... nope.
Crypto.com, if you need a head of user experience, I’m available and would be a great fit for the job lol
At worst this is a classic lesson in “not your keys, not your coins” evidence :)

The Gods Unchained DeFi Challenge – ETH prizes for the top 5 ideas!

You! Yes, you!
We want you to open that big brain and share your ideas around Gods Unchained assets, DeFi and the wider crypto space! Submit your entry before September 26th, 2020 for your chance to win a slice of $3,000 USD in ETH alongside Genesis Chests.
We’re constantly looking for new ways to give more utility to our in-game assets and thus power to the users that wield them – it’s why Gods Unchained exists. We’ve got plenty in the works in this space – with a new season and our game-changing exchange on the way – but what better way to put the power in your hands than to hear the interesting ideas you have around blockchain assets and the Ethereum ecosystem (and maybe even have some funded in the future 😉)?
Gods Unchained is built to change the way in-game assets are viewed forever – a huge goal, sure – but your input could help bring this closer to reality.

The Challenge:

We’re looking for creative ways for Gods Unchained items to be used in the DeFi or wider crypto space. The Ethereum network is constantly presenting exciting new ways to use assets, and we’re interested in how you’d use Gods Unchained assets to capitalize on the growing potential of DeFi.
We’re not looking for fully laid out plans, simply proposals of what you think would work, be cool, or add to the current Ethereum ecosystem. Your proposal can be deep and technical (if that’s how you work) or simply a great idea written down in 1–2 pages that unlocks the blockchain’s full potential.
What we’d like to see from your proposal is a clarity around the following:
  1. What’s your idea?
  2. What problem is it solving?
  3. Why is your idea valuable?
  4. How would it work? (To put it another way: how do you think it might work? Broad terms are fine, no need to go full white paper on us).
Submissions will be judged based on their potential value for Gods Unchained and our community, as well as on their originality, and feasibility.

Prizes:

  1. Challenge Champion: $1,000 USD worth of ETH + 2 x Genesis Legendary Chests (1 available). This goes to the best entry to emerge from the challenge. There can only be one champ, and that champ could be you!
  2. Big-Brain Bonus Prizes: $500 worth of ETH + 1 x Genesis Rare Chest (4 available). This is for those ideas that are so. damn. good. But just fall short of being the champ. All big-brain entries deserve a prize, but only the top four can get them.
This competition will be judged by an internal panel of Immutable judges led by our Chief Technology Officer: Alex Connolly.

How to Enter:

Entry is a two step process:
  1. Publish your proposal in a public forum online. We suggest creating your own thread in GodsUnchained.
  2. Post the link to your proposal on Twitter. To ensure we receive your entry, Twitter posts must mention the official GodsUnchained account and use the hashtags #DEFI and #GUDEFI.
HOT TIP: Given you can make amendments up until the cutoff, we'd recommend hustling feedback from other users to increase your chances of being chosen. Many brains make light work... uh, that’s a saying, right?

Rules:

  1. To enter this competition, you will need to submit a proposal on potential tools and applications which utilize Gods Unchained assets, related to DeFi or the wider crypto space.
  2. You are welcome to submit more than one proposal.
  3. Your proposal can be deep and technical, or just a great idea using the blockchain to its fullest potential!
  4. You do not have to build the tool, but you can choose to if you wish.
  5. Prizing is as follows:
    1. 1 x Challenge Champion Prize: $1000 + 2 Genesis Legendary Chests (GLC)
    2. 4 x Big Brain Bonus Prize: $500 + 1 Genesis Rare Chest (GRC)
  6. Entries will open from 12PM PDT on the 26th of August, 2020. They will formally close at 12PM PDT on the 26th of September, 2020. Late entries will not be considered.
  7. Results will be announced on our social channels on 30th September, 2020.
  8. Winners will be contacted by our team via Twitter Direct Message to organise distribution of their prizes.
You can read the full terms and conditions for the event here.

I'm kinda ok with MCO -> CRO Swap; a indepth personal view

EDIT: this post https://www.reddit.com/Crypto_com/comments/i2yhuz/open_letter_to_kris_from_one_of_cdcs_biggest/ from u/CryptoMines expresses my sentiments and concerns better than I could ever put into words myself. I'd say read his/her post instead.
Very long post ahead, but TL;DR, I actually see this swap as a positive change, despite fearing for what it may do to my portofolio, and having mixed feelings about its consequences on CDC reputation.Before I start, for the sake of context and bias, here's my personal situation as a CDC user:
  1. I'm just a average Joe, with a 500 MCO Jade card. I bough 50 MCO at 5,22€ in September 2019 and staked for Ruby, then bough 440 MCO at 2.47€ in March 2020 and upgraded to Jade. The total amount of MCO I own is currently 515, and everything above the 500 stake is cashback rewards.
  2. I bought MCO exclusively for the card and bonus Earn interest benefits, and had no plans to unstake my MCO. Now with the swap, definetly won't unstake.
  3. The MCO -> CRO conversion rates increased the fiat value of my MCO in about 1000€.
  4. I own a decent amount of CRO, wich I bought at ~0,031€ in March 2020.
  5. The country where I live is crypto friendly and completely crypto-tax free; I only have to pay income tax if I deposit a certain threshold of fiat in my bank.
Take all these factors into account as possible (if not major) influencers or bias on my opinions; both the emotional and economical ones. Call me a fool or a devil's advocate if you want, but keep your torches and pitchforks down. As we say here on Reddit: "Remember the human".-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Like all of you, I woke up to find this anouncement, wich came right the #&@ out of nowere, and gives you little to no options. Good or bad, this announcement arrived as basicly a "comply or die" choice. Emotionally, this came as both terrifying and disgusting; but rationally, I cannot blame CDC for it.
Because wether we like it or not, CDC is a centralized company, and the MCO tokens were never a stock or legally binding contract; something wich pretty much every crypto company or ICO warns in their T&C and risk warnings. Not to mention the mostly unregulated status of the cryptocurrency and. I'll call this "dishonest" any day, but I cannot see it as a "scammy" since I can't see how they broke any rules or terms.
A scammer would take your money/assets away, but CDC is offering you to swap it for another asset wich you can sell right away if you want. And at current price, it is still worth more or less as much fiat as MCO cost at the 5 $/€ wich was more or less the comunity standard used for calculating the card prices. And by that, I mean that the fiat value of 50/500/5000 MCO (as CRO) is actually not far from the 250/2500/25'000 $/€ that the comunity commonly used as standard when calculating the ROI and (under)valuation of MCO.
So CDC is at least trying to give us the option to get (some) our money back, and not at a unfair rate. If you happened to buy MCO at a price higher than this, I can't see how that's CDC's fault, just as I don't see anyone blaming Bitcoin or Altcoins for getting them stuck at the top of the 2017 bubble burst.
I read many posts in this reddit calling this a "backstab" and "betrayal" of early investors and for the people who "believed in MCO". Emotionally, I share your sentiment.But after thinking it for a while, I'd say this was actually very rewarding for early investors and long term MCO supporters. As CDC clearly sates in the swap rules; nobody is going to lose their card tier or MCO stake benefits (at least not yet), and your stake DOES NOT unstake automatically after 180 days. Actually, so far they never did unstake automatically, you had to manually unstake yourself.
With this in mind, everyone who already got their cards, or at least staked MCO to reserve one, basicly got them 3-5 times cheaper than future users; and IMHO, now the $/€ price of cards feels more fair and sustainable compared to their benefits.So in a sense, everyone who supported and believed on the MCO for its utility (i.e. the card and app benefits) has been greatly rewarded with perks that they get to keep, but are now out of reach for a lot of people.Likewise, the people who believed and invested in CRO (for whatever reason), have also been rewarded, as their CRO tokens now have more utility.
So either the price of CRO crashes down to around 0.05 $/€, or the people who bought MCO/CRO early or cheap are now massively benefited. But then again, so is everyone who bought or mined Bitcoin in its early days, or invested in Bitcoin at crucial points of its history... how is that unfair? Some people bought Ethereum at 1'400 $ on a mix of hopes/promises that it would continue to rise; it didn't. And even today with DeFi and ETH 2.0 ever closer, it is still far from that price.
And I know what some of you are thinking: "The cards aren't avaiable in my country yet, that's why I didn't buy/stake."Well, they weren't avaiable in my country either when I staked 50 MCO. Heck, the cards weren't avaiable in anyones country when MCO started, but many people still bought it and staked it. That's exacly what "early adopter", "long supporter" and "believing in MCO" means.
On the other hand, the people who invested on MCO as a speculative asset and decided to HODL and hoard MCO, hoping for its price to moon and then sell MCO at big profit, had their dreams mercilessly crushed by this swap... and good lord, I feel their pain.But this is also where I'll commit the sin of being judgemental, because IMHO, speculating on MCO never made any sense to me; MCO was a utility token, not a value token, so it should not (and could not) ever be worth more than the value of its utility. That's basicly how stablecoins and PAXG are able to stay stable; because nobody will pay more/less than the value of the asset/service they represent.
Tough now that I'm looking at the new card stake tiers in CRO, I have to give credit to the MCO hodlers I just now criticised; maybe you were right all along. Unless the price of CRO crashes or corrects, I wich case, I un-rest my case.
One thing I'll agree with everyone tough, is that I fell that CDC just suckerpunched it's comunity. Because even if we have no vote on its decisions (wich again, we aren't necessarily entitled to, since they are a privante and centralized business) they should/could have warned that this was in their plans well in advance; if anything to allow those who wouldn't like it to exit this train calmly.
Also the CRO stake duration reset. The mandatory reset of your CRO stake for taking advantage of the early swap bonus feels like another gut-punch.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now that we got emotional feelings out of the way, here's my sentiment about how this will affect the overall CDC ecossystem.
One common criticism of the sustainability of MCO was that its supply cap could never allow a large number of cards to be issued, and how could CDC keep paying the cashbacks and rebates. On the oposite corner, one of the major criticisms of the sustainability of CRO, was it's ridiculously huge supply cap and inflation caused by the gradual un-freezing and release of more CRO into the system.
But now that MCO and CRO became one, it might just have made both issues more sustainable. Now the huge supply cap of CRO makes more sense, as it allows a much larger number of future users to stake for cards (at higher costs, but still). And because most card cashback is small parcels, this large supply also ensures that CDC can keep paying said cashbacks for a long time; especially since it can be semi-renewable trough the trading fees we pay in CRO.
Before this, the MCO you got as cashback had no use, other than selling it for fiat or speculate on its price. But CRO can be used, at the very least, to receive a discount on trading fees. And everytime you pay trading fees in CRO or spend CRO on a Syndicate event, some of that CRO goes back to CDC, wich they can use to keep paying the cahsback/rebates.
And keep in mind, the technicalities of CRO can be changed, as well as the perks and utilities it can be used for. So even if this current model doesn't fix everything (wich it probably doesn't) it can still be changed to patch problems or expand its use.
Another obvious potentially positive outcome of this, is that now CDC only has to focus on 1 token, so it makes it easier to manage and drive its value. People complained that CDC was neglecting MCO over promoting CRO, but now they can focus on both services (cards/exchange) at the same time. Sure, this might not bring much advantage to the common customer, but its probably a major resource saver and optimizer at corporate levels; wich in the long term ultimately benefits its customers.
Much like Ethereum is undergoing major changes to ensure its scalability, the crypto companies themselves also have to change to acommodate the growing number of users, especially as the cryptomarket and DeFi are growing and becoming more competitive. Business strategies that were once successfull became obsolete, and exchanges that once held near-monopolies had to adjust to rising competitors. There is no reason why CDC shouldn't keep up with this, or at least try to.
Point is, the financial markets, crypto or otherwise, are not a status quo haven. And when something is wrong, something has to be changed, even if it costs. The very rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain, wich is why we are here in the first place, is a perfect example of this, as it experiments and provides alternatives to legacy/traditional products and technologies.
Was this the best solution to its current problems? Is this what will protect us as customers from a potentially unsustainable business model? I have no idea.
This change ripped me too from my previous more or less relaxed status quo (the safety of the value of the CRO I bough for cheap), along with CRO late investors wich now probably fear for the devaluation of their CRO. To say nothing of the blow this represents for my trust (and I believe everyone elses trust) on CDC and its public relations. It's not what CDC did, it's how they did it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wether you actually bothered to read all I wrote or just skip everything (can't blame you), I'm eager to hear your opinions and whatever criticisms on my opinions you may have.
If you just want to vent at me, you are welcome too; now you can raise your pitchforks and torches.

How to buy Bitcoin and Deposit on Roobet Full Tutorial

Hello!
In this thread I will do my very best to explain how to purchase Bitcoin safely and deposit it onto Roobet.com !
If anything is too confusing or you need further instructions feel free to message a mod for help!Be very aware of other users offering to sell you bitcoin or purchase on your behalf.If you are new to Bitcoin in general I strongly recommend watching this quick video on the basics of bitcoin safety https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z2xggmeW1AAfter you have watched that or you already understand bitcoin skip to down below!
Buying Bitcoin
Step 1 Chosing an exchange
Ok so you want to buy bitcoin to play on roobet? No problem! Bitcoin is super easy to use once you understand it! The first thing you need to do is pick an exchange to purchase from. I would recommend coinbase as it is a very large and trusted exchange. If coinbase does not work in your region then I would recommend Binance The last option if buying online doesn't work would be a local Bitcoin ATM use google to find one close to you.

Step 2 Signing up - coinbase Sign up using https://www.coinbase.com/join/carava_zo to get a bonus 10$ btc on your first purchase Once you create an account you will be prompt to verify both a Email & Phone Number *Sometimes a photo id is required* *(It is recommend to add one as it will improve account security and increase your buying limit)* Follow the on screen prompts until you get to Add Payment Method
Add your method of payment
Once you link a Bank/Credit Card you will now be in the main page

GO SLOW FROM THIS POINT ON THERE IS NO RUSH Select the coin you would like to purchase Select the payment method you have added in the previous step Ensure that One Time Purchase is selected so it does not recur automatically
Confirmation Window
This is the last chance to cancel or change anything before you purchase. In this example I am making a purchase of $100 Cad worth of BTC Take not of Coinbase fees so you do not get confused once the BTC arrives
Complete
Your BTC will be available instantly! that is the beauty of setting up a verified coinbase account! Step 1 is complete we have now successfully purchased our first amount bitcoin!

Once you do that the Wallet Window will pop up

  7. DOUBLE TRIPLE QUADRUPLE CHECK THE ADDRESS IS CORRECT YOU ONLY GET 1 SHOT AT THIS GO SLOW
  8. If everything looks good click send
TRIPLE CHECK BEFORE CLICKING SEND
You will be given a confirmation screen again take note of the fees It is easy to get confused especially with currency conversion its always best to look at the BTC amount not the $ amount. (pro tip)
Last chance to check everything
Once you confirmed everything click send and the BTC is on its way! Go back to roobet and keep an eye on your notifications. Thanks to Roobet Instant funding you only need 1 confirmation before your funds are ready to go!

Crpto is risky this website combines both please take the appropriate steps to ensure not only your financial safety but also your metal health Play Smart Play Safe
Thank you for reading!if this helped you at all I would love it if you used my links above when signing up This was my first reddit guide I apologize if it is messy/confusing I will work on the formatting any Feedback is appreciated

Don't blindly follow a narrative, its bad for you and its bad for crypto in general

I mostly lurk around here but I see a pattern repeating over and over again here and in multiple communities so I have to post. I'm just posting this here because I appreciate the fact that this sub is a place of free speech and maybe something productive can come out from this post, while bitcoin is just fucking censorship, memes and moon/lambo posts. If you don't agree, write in the comments why, instead of downvoting. You don't have to upvote either, but when you downvote you are killing the opportunity to have discussion. If you downvote or comment that I'm wrong without providing any counterpoints you are no better than the BTC maxis you despise.
In various communities I see a narrative being used to bring people in and making them follow something without thinking for themselves. In crypto I see this mostly in BTC vs BCH tribalistic arguments:
- BTC community: "Everything that is not BTC is shitcoin." or more recently as stated by adam on twitter, "Everything that is not BTC is a ponzi scheme, even ETH.", "what is ETH supply?", and even that they are doing this for "altruistic" reasons, to "protect" the newcomers. Very convenient for them that they are protecting the newcomers by having them buy their bags
- BCH community: "BTC maxis are dumb", "just increase block size and you will have truly p2p electronic cash", "It is just that simple, there are no trade offs", "if you don't agree with me you are a BTC maxi", "BCH is satoshi's vision for p2p electronic cash"
It is not exclusive to crypto but also politics, and you see this over and over again on twitter and on reddit.
My point is, that narratives are created so people don't have to think, they just choose a narrative that is easy to follow and makes sense for them, and stick with it. And people keep repeating these narratives to bring other people in, maybe by ignorance, because they truly believe it without questioning, or maybe by self interest, because they want to shill you their bags.
Because this is BCH community, and because bitcoin is censored, so I can't post there about the problems in the BTC narrative (some of which are IMO correctly identified by BCH community), I will stick with the narrative I see in the BCH community.
The culprit of this post was firstly this post by user u/scotty321 "The BTC Paradox: “A 1 MB blocksize enables poor people to run their own node!” “Okay, then what?” “Poor people won’t be able to use the network!”". You will see many posts of this kind being made by u/Egon_1 also. Then you have also this comment in that thread by u/fuck_____________1 saying that people that want to run their own nodes are retarded and that there is no reason to want to do that. "Just trust block explorer websites". And the post and comment were highly upvoted. Really? You really think that there is no problem in having just a few nodes on the network? And that the only thing that secures the network are miners?
As stated by user u/co1nsurf3r in that thread:
While I don't think that everybody needs to run a node, a full node does publish blocks it considers valid to other nodes. This does not amount to much if you only consider a single node in the network, but many "honest" full nodes in the network will reduce the probability of a valid block being withheld from the network by a collusion of "hostile" node operators.
But surely this will not get attention here, and will be downvoted by those people that promote the narrative that there is no trade off in increasing the blocksize and the people that don't see it are retarded or are btc maxis.
The only narrative I stick to and have been for many years now is that cryptocurrency takes power from the government and gives power to the individual, so you are not restricted to your economy as you can participate in the global economy. There is also the narrative of banking the bankless, which I hope will come true, but it is not a use case we are seeing right now.
Some people would argue that removing power from gov's is a bad thing, but you can't deny the fact that gov's can't control crypto (at least we would want them not to).
But, if you really want the individuals to remain in control of their money and transact with anyone in the world, the network needs to be very resistant to any kind of attacks. How can you have p2p electronic cash if your network just has a handful couple of nodes and the chinese gov can locate them and just block communication to them? I'm not saying that this is BCH case, I'm just refuting the fact that there is no value in running your own node. If you are relying on block explorers, the gov can just block the communication to the block explorer websites. Then what? Who will you trust to get chain information? The nodes needs to be decentralized so if you take one node down, many more can appear so it is hard to censor and you don't have few points of failure.
Right now BTC is focusing on that use case of being difficult to censor. But with that comes the problem that is very expensive to transact on the network, which breaks the purpose of anyone being able to participate. Obviously I do think that is also a major problem, and lightning network is awful right now and probably still years away of being usable, if it ever will. The best solution is up for debate, but thinking that you just have to increase the blocksize and there is no trade off is just naive or misleading. BCH is doing a good thing in trying to come with a solution that is inclusive and promotes cheap and fast transactions, but also don't forget centralization is a major concern and nothing to just shrug off.
Saying that "a 1 MB blocksize enables poor people to run their own" and that because of that "Poor people won’t be able to use the network" is a misrepresentation designed to promote a narrative. Because 1MB is not to allow "poor" people to run their node, it is to facilitate as many people to run a node to promote decentralization and avoid censorship.
Also an elephant in the room that you will not see being discussed in either BTC or BCH communities is that mining pools are heavily centralized. And I'm not talking about miners being mostly in china, but also that big pools control a lot of hashing power both in BTC and BCH, and that is terrible for the purpose of crypto.
Other projects are trying to solve that. Will they be successful? I don't know, I hope so, because I don't buy into any narrative. There are many challenges and I want to see crypto succeed as a whole. As always guys, DYOR and always question if you are not blindly following a narrative. I'm sure I will be called BTC maxi but maybe some people will find value in this. Don't trust guys that are always posting silly "gocha's" against the other "tribe".
EDIT: User u/ShadowOfHarbringer has pointed me to some threads that this has been discussed in the past and I will just put my take on them here for visibility, as I will be using this thread as a reference in future discussions I engage:
When there was only 2 nodes in the network, adding a third node increased redundancy and resiliency of the network as a whole in a significant way. When there is thousands of nodes in the network, adding yet another node only marginally increase the redundancy and resiliency of the network. So the question then becomes a matter of personal judgement of how much that added redundancy and resiliency is worth. For the absolutist, it is absolutely worth it and everyone on this planet should do their part.
What is the magical number of nodes that makes it counterproductive to add new nodes? Did he do any math? Does BCH achieve this holy grail safe number of nodes? Guess what, nobody knows at what number of nodes is starts to be marginally irrelevant to add new nodes. Even BTC today could still not have enough nodes to be safe. If you can't know for sure that you are safe, it is better to try to be safer than sorry. Thousands of nodes is still not enough, as I said, it is much cheaper to run a full node as it is to mine. If it costs millions in hash power to do a 51% attack on the block generation it means nothing if it costs less than $10k to run more nodes than there are in total in the network and cause havoc and slowing people from using the network. Or using bot farms to DDoS the 1000s of nodes in the network. Not all attacks are monetarily motivated. When you have governments with billions of dollars at their disposal and something that could threat their power they could do anything they could to stop people from using it, and the cheapest it is to do so the better
You should run a full node if you're a big business with e.g. >$100k/month in volume, or if you run a service that requires high fraud resistance and validation certainty for payments sent your way (e.g. an exchange). For most other users of Bitcoin, there's no good reason to run a full node unless you reel like it.
Shouldn't individuals benefit from fraud resistance too? Why just businesses?
Personally, I think it's a good idea to make sure that people can easily run a full node because they feel like it, and that it's desirable to keep full node resource requirements reasonable for an enthusiast/hobbyist whenever possible. This might seem to be at odds with the concept of making a worldwide digital cash system in which all transactions are validated by everybody, but after having done the math and some of the code myself, I believe that we should be able to have our cake and eat it too.
This is recurrent argument, but also no math provided, "just trust me I did the math"
The biggest reason individuals may want to run their own node is to increase their privacy. SPV wallets rely on others (nodes or ElectronX servers) who may learn their addresses.
It is a reason and valid one but not the biggest reason
If you do it for fun and experimental it good. If you do it for extra privacy it's ok. If you do it to help the network don't. You are just slowing down miners and exchanges.
Yes it will slow down the network, but that shows how people just don't get the the trade off they are doing
I will just copy/paste what Satoshi Nakamoto said in his own words. "The current system where every user is a network node is not the intended configuration for large scale. That would be like every Usenet user runs their own NNTP server."
Another "it is all or nothing argument" and quoting satoshi to try and prove their point. Just because every user doesn't need to be also a full node doesn't mean that there aren't serious risks for having few nodes
For this to have any importance in practice, all of the miners, all of the exchanges, all of the explorers and all of the economic nodes should go rogue all at once. Collude to change consensus. If you have a node you can detect this. It doesn't do much, because such a scenario is impossible in practice.
Not true because as I said, you can DDoS the current nodes or run more malicious nodes than that there currently are, because is cheap to do so
Non-mining nodes don't contribute to adding data to the blockchain ledger, but they do play a part in propagating transactions that aren't yet in blocks (the mempool). Bitcoin client implementations can have different validations for transactions they see outside of blocks and transactions they see inside of blocks; this allows for "soft forks" to add new types of transactions without completely breaking older clients (while a transaction is in the mempool, a node receiving a transaction that's a new/unknown type could drop it as not a valid transaction (not propagate it to its peers), but if that same transaction ends up in a block and that node receives the block, they accept the block (and the transaction in it) as valid (and therefore don't get left behind on the blockchain and become a fork). The participation in the mempool is a sort of "herd immunity" protection for the network, and it was a key talking point for the "User Activated Soft Fork" (UASF) around the time the Segregated Witness feature was trying to be added in. If a certain percentage of nodes updated their software to not propagate certain types of transactions (or not communicate with certain types of nodes), then they can control what gets into a block (someone wanting to get that sort of transaction into a block would need to communicate directly to a mining node, or communicate only through nodes that weren't blocking that sort of transaction) if a certain threshold of nodes adheres to those same validation rules. It's less specific than the influence on the blockchain data that mining nodes have, but it's definitely not nothing.
The first reasonable comment in that thread but is deep down there with only 1 upvote
The addition of non-mining nodes does not add to the efficiency of the network, but actually takes away from it because of the latency issue.
That is true and is actually a trade off you are making, sacrificing security to have scalability
The addition of non-mining nodes has little to no effect on security, since you only need to destroy mining ones to take down the network
It is true that if you destroy mining nodes you take down the network from producing new blocks (temporarily), even if you have a lot of non mining nodes. But, it still better than if you take down the mining nodes who are also the only full nodes. If the miners are not the only full nodes, at least you still have full nodes with the blockchain data so new miners can download it and join. If all the miners are also the full nodes and you take them down, where will you get all the past blockchain data to start mining again? Just pray that the miners that were taken down come back online at some point in the future?
The real limiting factor is ISP's: Imagine a situation where one service provider defrauds 4000 different nodes. Did the excessive amount of nodes help at all, when they have all been defrauded by the same service provider? If there are only 30 ISP's in the world, how many nodes do we REALLY need?
You cant defraud if the connection is encrypted. Use TOR for example, it is hard for ISP's to know what you are doing.
Satoshi specifically said in the white paper that after a certain point, number of nodes needed plateaus, meaning after a certain point, adding more nodes is actually counterintuitive, which we also demonstrated. (the latency issue). So, we have adequately demonstrated why running non-mining nodes does not add additional value or security to the network.
Again, what is the number of nodes that makes it counterproductive? Did he do any math?
There's also the matter of economically significant nodes and the role they play in consensus. Sure, nobody cares about your average joe's "full node" where he is "keeping his own ledger to keep the miners honest", as it has no significance to the economy and the miners couldn't give a damn about it. However, if say some major exchanges got together to protest a miner activated fork, they would have some protest power against that fork because many people use their service. Of course, there still needs to be miners running on said "protest fork" to keep the chain running, but miners do follow the money and if they got caught mining a fork that none of the major exchanges were trading, they could be coaxed over to said "protest fork".
In consensus, what matters about nodes is only the number, economical power of the node doesn't mean nothing, the protocol doesn't see the net worth of the individual or organization running that node.
Running a full node that is not mining and not involved is spending or receiving payments is of very little use. It helps to make sure network traffic is broadcast, and is another copy of the blockchain, but that is all (and is probably not needed in a healthy coin with many other nodes)
He gets it right (broadcasting transaction and keeping a copy of the blockchain) but he dismisses the importance of it

[ CryptoCurrency ] Discussion of the Day: XTRABYTES (XBY)

Topic originally posted in CryptoCurrency by joenorwood77 [link]
-Today's Crypto of the Day is XTRABYTES (XBY), and it's current price is $0.0115.
DUE TO SOME PERSONAL ISSUES, I AM TEMPORARILY BEHIND ON FOLLOW UP POSTS. I WILL EVENTUALLY CATCH UP AND POST MY OPINIONS ON ALL OF THEM. I AM NOT TRYING TO MAKE LOW EFFORT POSTS AND WILL DO MY BEST TO POST A NEW DISCUSSION DAILY FOR A WHILE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. I AM FINALLY STARTING TO FOLLOW UP ON SOME RECENT POSTS.
-Since 2/18/20, I have posted a crypto/asset of the day for discussion. I typically begin by posting the current price, as well as the brief CoinMarketCap summary. If there is a video featuring it on Coin Bureau, I also post that. After a week or so, I usually post replies to some of the posts, and I also add an overall summary of my thoughts, if I plan to hold any, and is so how much.
-I strongly encourage everyone to follow up on past discussions and you can still make comments on them. There is a lot of valuable information on many of these posts, so please check them out as you have time. You may learn a lot regarding some of these projects. I know I certainly did! https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/search?q=author%3Ajoenorwood77&restrict_sr=on
-My first month or so I featured projects listed on some of the main exchanges. Now I plan to focus on the top 100 on CoinMarketCap. After that I expect to broaden to the top 200, and then some random moonshots. I will eventually create a post looking for any projects I should feature before I eventually close this project.
-Just because I feature a project does not mean I like it. I feel discussion on bad projects are just as important as the good ones. It is useful to hear pros and cons about every project, even if you are simply playing devils advocate.
-I would say a perfect reply would include at least one pro and at least one con for the project. However, I still feel it is acceptable if you post only pros or cons. If your post does not have any substance to it, "this coin is a scam", "avoid this shitcoin", "this coin will moon to $1000 by the end of 2020", then I will just assume you are posting for personal gain rather than helping the community. If you simply downvote the post without any comments, the only thing you accomplish is having less people view the post. I do not care about Reddit Karma, but if a post drops to zero early on, it can be extremely difficult for people to even find these discussions (which I assume is your intention).
-These posts are not meant to be financial advice, but instead to be an educational discussion. Everyone is responsible for doing their own research. For each project, I am interested in learning if you have any investment in it, and if so, about what percentage of your portfolio does it carry. Most importantly, what should we all know; good, bad, and indifferent, about this project?

Future of CashFusion

CashFusion is awesome, and I want it to become the best piece of crypto development, fungibility is critical. Bitcoin was missing it for so long. This tech has potential to make more equivalent $ private and for more people than Monero ever could through higher value and network effect, and fungible bitcoins will make world economically free much faster
So I've some questions for its future, please tell if I'm misinterpreting or missing anything:
  1. The interface: are there plans in EC to replace bottom-right icon with full tab in the wallet with all the settings and, hopefully, graph of your activity with fused coins? Will EC add option to consolidate->fan-out->consolidate... in perpetuity without manual switch? What is the status of adding CashFusion to Bitcoin.com wallet (and making it open source again)? Does Crescent Cash plan to add CashFusion? Any other wallets?
  2. The cost: do people in EC or anyone prominent interested in CashFusion push for 1 sat per tx or subsat fees to make fungibility as affordable as regular 1-to-2 tx? What is BCHN's position in regards to it, no mention in the roadmap https://www.reddit.com/btc/comments/i4rtd2/what_is_bchns_roadmap_is_it_the_same_as/g0kewtg/? Right now and with BCH appreciation in mind especially?
  3. The security: will EC form recommendations itself or with another audit at the number of fusions to achieve some specific goal/level (maybe everyday txs, exchange-level clean, multi-year deposit etc) and add to the software to set it up? Something like "these X coins are fusing; these Y coins were fused Z times which equals this level of security, Link: EC recommendations", with manual override ofc. This could also improve the cost as for now the safest assumption is perpetual fusion. Such recommendations also should take into account liquidity needs of the whole, which makes it complicated
Edit: addtion to 2nd point - would be nice to see ability to set fees manually if it won't affect liquidity pools to much. For some coins (if not for absolute majority) fusing longer, but cheaper is preferable to fusing fast, but more expensive

When with Augur Team do a better job of explaining Augur to the public?

Anyone on this reddit knows that Augur has one of the best projects in the crypto space and has for a while. When you go to the site though, it's incredibly hard to understand how to navigate it. First of all there is a redirect from the .net site, with a long disclaimer. But even once you get onto the v2 site, it is hard to understand how to navigate it and use the platform. Anyone who has been in the crypto space for a while knows that to get mass public usage you need a simple barrier to entry and something easy to understand. CoinBase and other exchanges made that process easy which is why crypto grew the way it did. Does anyone on the Forecast Foundation plan to make a video that explains how to easily use the v2 site? A little marketing goes a long way. I've only seen a couple videos on YouTube recently where someone from the team was explaining Augur... These videos can make a huge difference to getting mass public usage.

Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020

Updated list of Global Beermoney opportunities (+180!) - June 2020

Introduction

The current, and now previous, Beermoney Global list started nearly 5 years ago. It’s been updated and has grown over all that time, but it also became a hassle to keep current. It was time to build a new list from scratch based on my experience in the Beermoney world over all these years and all the contributions all of you have been making in this sub.
The lists consist of opportunities that are available in at least one country that is not the US. This means there are sites which only work in Canada or the UK. There’s sites which are open to the whole world, but this does not mean everyone can really earn something on it. It’s all still very demographic and therefore location dependent. This list should give you a starting point to try out and find what works for you. I’m not using everything myself as I prefer to focus on a few, so not all are tested by me. They are found in this sub, other subreddits and other resources where people claim to have success.
I’ve chosen the format of a simple table with the bare minimum of information to keep things clean. It includes a link, how you earn, personal payment proof if available and sign-up bonus codes if applicable. Some of these bonuses are also one-time use codes specifically made for this sub! For the ones I don’t have payment proof (yet) feel free to provide some as a comment or via modmail so others know it’s legit. I am working on detailed instructions for each method that I personally use which will include things like cashout minimum, cashout options, tips & tricks,... For now I’ve split things up based on the type of earning like passive or mobile. Because of this there’s sometimes an overlap as some are both passive and on mobile or both earning crypto and a GPT (Get Paid To) website.
The lists are obviously not complete so I invite you to keep posting new ones in the sub, as a comment to this post, or in modmail. Especially if you have sites or apps which work for one single specific country I can start building a list, just like I did for The Netherlands and Belgium. If you recognize things which are in fact scams or not worth it let me know as well.

The Netherlands specific
For The Netherlands there are a few very good options next to a bunch of ‘spaarprogramma’s. There ‘spaarprogramma’s are all the same where you receive and click a bunch of e-mails, advertisements, banners,... I advise you to create a separate e-mail address or use a good filter in your inbox as you will be spammed to death. I believe they can be a nice piece of beermoney but they take quite the effort.

Last week 511 BTC were traded in Venezuela using LocalBitcoin (up from 475 BTC), buying BTC with FIAT and selling BTC for FIAT. 511 BTC are 959,197,000,000 Bs. (Bolivares). One BTC is around 1,970,000,000 Bs. Monthly minimum wage is 5 USD (50,000 satoshis)

Hi guys,
I'm Venezuelan living here and have taken the time to track and share this weekly numbers.
Considering now the goverment is officially taking BTC to pay for passports, https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/her9xg/venezuela_government_is_officially_taking_bitcoin/
I think a part of that weekly Localbitcoin volumen comes directly for the goverment. It has been around 2,000 BTC monthly for months! (only measured using LocalBitcoin, there are other exchanges like AIRTM, Uphold, Binance and so on, but no open data). Most of the Localbitcoin trades are in Bolivares.
I recommend reading this website, it is one of the best english websites for Venezuela news (they sometimes touch the crypto and economic situation).
https://www.caracaschronicles.com/
People always ask what the the average salary, not the minimum. Well I would say around 20-50 USD monthly. One doctor is around 30 USD. Teacher around 20 USD. Junior engineer maybe 50 USD (The engineers collegue "suggests" around 200 USD monthly, but it is hard to find a place with these wages)
Any question let me know, AMA. But check my links and sources first.

Welcome all newcomers! Here's something important you should know. The crypto space is full of scams and here is how to spot one.

I know that this may seem obvious to most of you here, but I'd just like to make a PSA for all of the newcomers here.
The crypto space and even the general online investing space these days is full of scams.
So now that you know that, here's how to spot one:
  1. They offer you guaranteed % returns on your investment. Anyone advertising guaranteed % returns on your investment is a scammer. Almost every time without fail. The higher the rates, the more likely they are to be a scam. If they are offering anything more than 5% per year without acknowledging that it is a high risk investment is most likely a scam.
  2. They make you lock up your funds for a set period of time. This is a very common part of Ponzi schemes. It is done so that new investors cannot withdraw their funds for a long time. This means that their money can be used to pay off the first few investors which came before them and they can only withdraw their funds after the set period of time. The scammers then use this lockup time to attract new investors, allowing them to pay off the previous investors. This cycle repeats until the scheme runs out of new investors to pay off the old ones.
  3. The way they make their money isn’t made clear or is hidden behind a general explanation such as “an advanced trading algorithm” (see BitConnect’s “trading bot”.)
  4. As a general rule, the more a website or developers talks about the price of a crypto asset or the returns it will earn you, the higher the likelihood of it being a scam. This is just a general rule though since many legitimate projects just go all out when it comes to marketing, probably just to pump their own bags.
  5. Nobody will trade for you. Many people say they will trade for you or you should add them on What’sApp to join their “trading program”. Nobody who is actually a good trader will do this. Good traders don’t share their secrets and they don’t make money fast enough or consistently enough to offer their services to other people even if they wanted to. Usually these types of scammers will get you to send them your money “for them to trade with” and as soon as they get your money they will disappear.
  6. Their website just seems off. This is where an eye for detail is important. For the infamous BitConnect Ponzi scheme, they only let you trade their “cryptocurrency” on their own website’s exchange. That never made sense to me (this is of course not to say that just because you can buy a coin on a legitimate DEX like Uniswap means it isn’t a scam. For example, HEX is definitely a very clever, detailed Ponzi scheme with a token you can buy on Uniswap, but it is nonetheless scam to line the pockets of its asshat of a founder). Another example of this is what appears to be a Ponzi scheme which a Reddit user PM’d me asking me if it was legitimate (I believe the user is younger than most users here and is new to the crypto space so it is very understandable and I’m glad he asked me first). The website is www . backingfx . com (I don’t want to directly link a scam website here, but you can fix the link and see it for yourself if you are curious). This site promises 50%+ per day on your investment which they make by “trading” and you have to lock up your funds for at least two weeks. They have a fancy looking website but other things just seem off like their generic statement about “working with big companies” and no more details. Also, their about us section is sounds like it was translated and not written by a native English speaker as it says: Backingfx platform is at your service with its user-friendly features, secure infrastructure and applications that make a difference. Nobody would say it like that. It would normally be something like The BackingFX team is here to help you, not the platform itself is “at your service”. Finally, they also contradict themselves by having their offices listed as a generic Manhattan invesment office building yet their website says they are based in the UK! Everything wrong about this site could be a post of its own but that’s not what this post is about.
  7. They are doing a "giveaway" where you deposit crypto into their wallets and they say they will send you more crypto back. This is the oldest crypto scam in the book and people still fall for it. If someone wants you to send them your crypto for any reason, they probably intend on stealing your crypto since crypto transactions are basically irreversible.
Anyway, there are more telltale signs to look out for which you can find outlined in many articles on the internet if you search something like “how to spot a scam or Ponzi scheme”. I have outlined the main ones above so you should be armed well enough to spot one in the future.
Finally, I’m sure some of you may now be suspicious of ETH 2.0 staking as it will likely yield you 3-10% annually and you have to lock up your ETH. However, there important differences between the details of ETH 2.0 staking and scams offering guaranteed returns. First, there are detailed technical reasons for having to lock up ETH for ETH 2.0 staking. This is because building a bridge between ETH 1 and ETH 2.0 is a lot of extra work and adds many more attack vectors so having to lock up funds is the only option. Unlike a Ponzi though, when you will finally be able to move your ETH again will happen at the same time when phase 1.5 or phase 2 goes live whereas a Ponzi would be a set period of time from when you deposited your funds so when you get access to your funds again will be different for different users. This way, the Ponzi does its best to ensure that there is time for new users to pay you back. ETH 2.0 on the other hand doesn’t need to do this so anyone can lock up their ETH whenever and they day they will be able to move it again will be when the functionality for transactions will be added to ETH 2.0. Also, ETH staking offers you a yield on your Ether, not a guaranteed yield in dollars. This is an important distinction to make as it means that the returns in dollars are not guaranteed. Finally, with ETH 2.0, your returns themselves aren’t guaranteed since you could get slashed if you act maliciously on the network or if your staking node is offline a lot.
Anyway, stay safe out there and remember, if things seem too good to be true, they probably are.
