I need a Bitcoin expert.

Recommended Posts

I've been eyeballing grabbing some to just hold.  Not going to use money that I can't afford to lose though.  

 

at the moment unfortunately I'm down on both my Ethereum/Litecoin balances...bought them at their high and they stopped climbing and fell a good bit

BTC peaked high this weekend (almost $7600) and has taken a dip as low as $69XX as of now.

 

crazy...anxious to see what happens after the fork

I really hope it keeps pulling back for another two weeks, because then I'll actually have $$ to buy BTC

Oh my god.. I almost cashed out a grand from Bovada last night and decided to wait.

 

****.

I'm kicking my own *** on a constant basis at this point.  I keep telling myself it'll crash down to $5000 or so and I'll throw $3-4000 at it, but NOOOO

what.in.the....

 

http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2017/11/300-million-in-cryptocurrency.html

 

 

More than $300 million of cryptocurrency has been lost after
a series of bugs in a popular digital wallet service led one curious developer to accidentally take control of and then lock up the funds, according to The Guardian.

The firm Parity revealed that, while fixing a bug that let hackers steal $32 million out of few multi-signature wallets, it had inadvertently left a second flaw in its systems that allowed one user to become the sole owner of every single multi-signature wallet.

The user, “devops199”, triggered the flaw apparently by accident. When they realised what they had done, they attempted to undo the damage by deleting the code which had transferred ownership of the funds. Rather than returning the money, however, that simply locked all the funds in those multisignature wallets permanently, with no way to access them.

According to The Guardian, some are pushing for a “hard fork” of Ethereum, which would undo the damage by effectively asking 51% of the currency’s users to agree to pretend that it had never happened in the first place. That would require a change to the code that controls ethereum, and then that change to be adopted by the majority of the user base. The risk is that some of the community refuses to accept the change, resulting in a split into two parallel groups.

Saw that earlier here. 

 

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/markets/bitcoin-spikes-amid-suspension-of-software-upgrade/ar-BBEJxGt

 

That's kinda the thing that keeps me away from crypto currrency. 

 

While the block chain tech may be highly secure with a unique signature if you make security mistakes and hackers breach the user there is nothing to protect you. They don't need to break the block chain just compromise the user and they'll have info to steal and it would be hard to trace. 

 

At least with banks you're somewhat protected.

Apparently Fight Pass maybe be hijacking your computer to mine BTC. 

 

https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2017/11/8/16625002/ufc-fight-pass-using-subscribers-computers-mine-cryptocurrency-bitcoin-monero-mine-mma-news

 

 

On Monday a reddit user named gambledub posted on the MMA subreddit r/mma the following message: “Fight Pass is Shady! YSK UFC Fight Pass is using your PC to crypto mine. Your CPU is being used to mine, without your knowledge on a service you already pay!”

 

gambledub’s allegation came with a screen shot of Fight Pass’s web script revealing the line “//coinhive.com/lid/coinhive.min.js”.

 

According to Coindesk.com the code shown in that image was, “a monero mining script that can be embedded in a web page” developed by the company Coinhive. Monero, like Bitcoin, is a cryptocurrency.

Help me with picking a bitcoin wallet bro...

 

Electrum? blockchain.info? help

I have Coinbase and Blockchain.  I use Blockchain to launder BTC when I deposit or withdraw from a poker site I play on from time to time.  It doesn't truly 'launder' the coins but it helps.  I purchase w/ Coinbase, then send to my Blockchain and then deposit. 

 

Both Coinbase and Blockchain have good mobile apps.

Huh? I ser 5800k right now

Bitcoin Cash.

 

A forked off version of Bitcoin.

 

 

Those who held Bitcoin when it forked got free Bitcoin cash that is worth now $1500 after the runup these past 2 days.

 

Glad i didn't follow the wolfpak and sell mine off just to make quick free money short term.

 

Bitcoin Gold that forked off just like a few weeks ago hasn't been released yet but still hovering around $400 in futures already and once again those who held Bitcoin when forked have same amount of that as well.

 

Why you saw the original Bitcoin run ups lately people was entering the market to get free coins.

Do this if you don't want to get banned off the exchanges they will if determine it's from a gambling bitcoin address if you send it straight to the exchange.

 

When withdraw do the same steps but backwards.

 

 

Gambling Site withdraw.....send to wallet your choice.....to Exchange to cash out.

 

 

NEVER!!!!!!

 

Gambling site to Exchange pure to pure transfer

 

Red Flag!!!!

I desperately need a wallet....any recommendations?

 

 

blockchain.info

Hardware wallet (Any long-term hodl's or big balances).

 

Ledger Nano S or Trezor.

 

https://shop.trezor.io/

 

https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s

 

Control your keys and your coins and make sure you cannot be hacked. Look these up they will cost but you won't be sorry or as nervous. Do not buy these products by 3rd party buy from the company itself the last thing you want is something like these items in multiple hands before they come to your doorstep by other people outside the original makers.

 

Do a little bit of research on hardware wallets and these 2 and you will see how highly praised they are.

 

Blockchain for a hot wallet (small balances to make small transactions etc)

Ledger Nano S only supports a few of the coins I have...do you know if they have plans to update their coin list?

hmmm which bubble pops first? US Stock Market or Bitcoin(along with all cryptos)

 

 

Im thinking the first to pop will cause a large inflow of cash to the other...potentially bumping Bitcoing to 15k soon.
