  • Unpopular Opinion - You guys have got to CHILL
    by /u/TsitikEm on April 17, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    Scrolling this sub has become a monotonous journey of self righteous d-bags talking about how nobody understands crypto and how nobody understands this pump and dump, etc etc etc. Stop your bitchin. You sound salty and bitter and it’s kinda sad to see. You aren’t gods gift to crypto noobs trying to turn a quick buck. Get off your damn high horse and stop with the obnoxious posts and let people enjoy their damn selves. The end. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. EDIT: I guess the consensus is I gotta start BitChin? submitted by /u/TsitikEm [link] [comments]

  • VeChain Explained for Noobs
    by /u/Username-Not-A-Bot on April 17, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    I saw a really informative post about Ethereum from u/Ghostserpent and i wanted to do the same for VeChain. (Long but informative read) What is VeChain (VET)? VeChain is a blockchain built to help make supply chain management simpler. It was originally conceived as a way to determine if a real-life product is fake or not - preventing frauds and knock-offs. Since then its been used by major corporations to help track everything from wine production to car manufacturing. The way it does that is simple: give each product a unique identity, then use sensors to track what happens at each stage of the supply chain. That way, companies can be sure products are handled correctly, and consumers can verify their purchases are legitimate. Who invented VeChain? VeChain was founded in 2015 by Sunny Lu, the former CIO of Louis Vuitton China. He combined his expertise in luxury goods with blockchain technology to create an IoT (Internet of Things) application for supply chain management. He remains the CEO of VeChain through a non-profit called the VeChain Foundation. How does VeChain work? You can look at VeChain in three parts. The real-world tech, the cryptocurrency, and the platform. Real-world tech: VeChain works by giving physical products a unique identity, usually through RFID (radio frequency identification), QR Codes, or NFC (near-field communication). Sensors record information at every stage of the supply chain, and are recorded and linked to the product's identity. These are sensors that VeChain designs, and are created by manufacturers like Bosch and Qualcomm. Since it uses blockchain technology, the recorded data can`t be changed. This allows for a truthful record of what conditions were like throughout the supply chain. If anything went wrong, like goods being shipped to the wrong place, the blockchain record will show exactly where the mistake happened. The cryptocurrency: VeChain originally issued tokens (known as VEN) on Ethereum before it released its own platform in 2018. With this new platform came a rebranding as VeChainThor (known as VET). VET is the payment used in VeChain's system. The more VET a person or enterprise holds, the higher priority when it comes to using the blockchain's resources. VET can also be used to generate a second kind of token, known as VeThor or Thor Power (VTHO), to access the supply chain technology. So a company that wants to use VeChain's tracking for their supply chain has to pay VTHO in order to add more information to the blockchain. The platform: The platform that is used to do all of this, known as a main-net, can also be used by other blockchain projects to launch their own coin on VeChain's system (in a similar manner to Ethereum). This platform has helped move VeChain on from just supply chain into Dapps. What can you do with VeChain? VeChain has developed sensor chips for physical products that are uniquely linked to its blockchain platform. The system is exclusively geared for mass enterprise adoption. Its real-world tech has been in use since 2015, when it developed NFC tracking chips to be placed inside handbags for a French luxury brand. Then in 2016, VeChain applied this tech for the Renault car company to track vehicle history. It keeps track of maintenance, mileage, and anything else that has happened to the car from the time it first hits the road. This unchangeable record can be accessed by used car buyers to give them a complete account of the vehicle - a huge boost to tackle issues like odometer fraud. VeChain has also announced partnerships with BMW and other car companies in Europe and Asia. This technology has applicability in several other industries, and VeChain has hinted at other major collaborations in the works. EDIT: As u/liau_ stated I missed a key concept called Proof of Authority (PoA). PoA is an algorithm used with blockchains that delivers comparatively fast transactions through a consensus mechanism based on identity as a stake. To many this may sound pretty vague. In this video the PoA of VeChain is explained for those who find it interesting! submitted by /u/Username-Not-A-Bot [link] [comments]

  • I have another one for you guys, I coded a Binance trading algorithm that analyses the news sentiment from the top 100 crypto feeds and makes buying decisions, and of course - it's open source
    by /u/CyberPunkMetalHead on April 17, 2021 at 4:42 pm

    I had a lot of fun building this algo, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out! It's probably my most complex trading algorithm yet, and I'm happy to share it with this community because you reacted so nicely to my other projects! Here's quick overview of what the bot does: Pulls and analyzes the last headline from the top 100 crypto news sites Provide an overview on the most mentioned coin across all the headlines Analyse the sentiment of each headline and categorises the output by coin Places a Buy order if the compound sentiment is positive and the a coin is mentioned in multiple headlines It works with any cryptocurrency available on Binance Here are some considerations that I am planning address in the future: I accidentally used Feedspospot's top 100 Bitcoin feeds, so the sources are a bit biased right now During my testing the compound sentiment wasn't high enough and wouldn't place a lot of trades It can probably make use of multiprocessing to increase performance Anyway, here is the GitHub repo for the source code: And if you want a step by step guide, I wrote one too: ​ If you like the project and want to improve on it, feel free to send a pull Request on GitHub. Any ideas on how to further improve the recipe are also welcome! submitted by /u/CyberPunkMetalHead [link] [comments]

  • Bulls make money, bears make money and pigs get slaughtered.
    by /u/GroundbreakingLack78 on April 17, 2021 at 3:29 pm

    The quote that majority of the people already saw somewhere. The quote that’s been mostly being used in stocks market, but can be applied to crypto as well. The most common way people remember these terms is that a bull attacks by ducking its head and bringing its horns upward. A bear attacks by swiping its paws down and the pig is just being pig. Bulls - The Optimists A bull market is one marked with optimism and high investor confidence. During the bull market, the crypto market is generally doing well. Furthermore, the attitude associated with a bull market is that crypto prices will continue to rise. In some regards, investing during a bull market is easy because the expectation is that crypto prices will simply climb and remain high across the board. The problem, however, is that bull markets don't last forever, and they can often cause investors to lose money by holding overvalued cryptos. Bears - The Pessimists Opposite of the bull. A bear market is one plagued with pessimism and low investor confidence. Bear market cycles is marked with falling crypto prices. Investing during a bear market can be challenging because it's hard for investors to pinpoint which cryptos will be profitable when prices are trending downward on a whole. In fact, some investors prefer to wait out a bear market and buy cryptos only when they feel it's reaching its end. Pigs - The Dummies Pigs are investors whose goal is to make the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. The Pigs don’t do any kind of analysis and always look out for hot tips and want to make some quick bucks from the market. Pigs are the biggest losers in the market. Piggish investors are known to either take on high degrees of risk or overlook risk in order to make a profit. They often make no-brained investment decisions and buy cryptos without doing their proper due diligence. As a result, they tend to lose money, they inevitably get slaughtered. Pigs, by contrast, are the most likely to lose money no matter the shape of the market because of their greedy attitude. Are we in the phase, where there is a huge incoming flow of pigs that are going to get slaughtered? Or the bloodbath is already happening? Is it good for the whole sphere or not? Which animal are you? What do you think? submitted by /u/GroundbreakingLack78 [link] [comments]

  • Are there any coins that HAVEN’T pumped yet on your watchlist?
    by /u/JazzyJayKarr on April 17, 2021 at 3:24 pm

    Are there any coins that haven’t 10X’d in the last couple months on your watchlist? This is a hard time to find value in a coin when everything is crazy high. I have money I’d like to invest but, other than day trading, it’s just too risky to buy anything and hold at these ATH’s. Happy trading everyone! submitted by /u/JazzyJayKarr [link] [comments]

  • Congratulations to anyone making decent profit from whatever coin
    by /u/FineLeg on April 17, 2021 at 3:08 pm

    There is an unfortunate abundance of hate and jealousy from people presumably "missing out" on significant price increases and frankly I don't understand that mentality. We should be congratulating our Brothers and Sisters in crypto and not criticising their choice of coin. Crypto isn't a race to become rich, it's a much longer journey with plenty of ups and downs and ultimately, we're all in it together! So lets just congratulate others on their recent successes and if you believe in your portfolio then your time will come too. submitted by /u/FineLeg [link] [comments]

  • PSA: If you suddenly stop recieving ads to earn BAT on Brave, make sure you are updated to the latest version
    by /u/sggts04 on April 17, 2021 at 2:19 pm

    You receive ads to earn BAT in Brave Rewards ONLY on the latest most updated version of Brave browser. Sometimes when a new update comes through, many people do not get the update button on the triple dash menu for 1-2 days, and during that time you stop receiving ads from Brave Rewards, which is a common reported issue by many people here. However you can always just go to brave://settings/help and manually update it if there's an update available. So if you suddenly stop getting ads for a day, go to the settings and make sure you update to the latest version! submitted by /u/sggts04 [link] [comments]

  • Are MOONs Changing The Way Social Media Works Forever?
    by /u/EthereumDream on April 17, 2021 at 2:19 pm

    Times are changing. Since I have joined this sub, I have thought about how revolutionary the concept of MOONs actually is. You literally get paid to provide support and content for r/Cryptocurrency . This has previously been unseen, as social media has often been a concept that only takes away from your life; this includes time, effort, and time doing other things more worthwhile. Now onto the next point: People in different countries get impacted by MOONs at a different magnitude. In the USA, 1 MOON = $0.07 at the moment. You know what this means? For every 1 upvote a person in the USA receives, they receive ~ $0.07 (0.88 MOON per karma but we will round up for easiness sake). Where it gets even crazier? In less fortunate countries. I will provide a list of 10 countries where MOONs have an even bigger impact. Country - How much 1 MOON equals (Relative to USD - Converting $0.07) Afghanistan - $5.43 Brazil - $0.39 Bangladesh - $5.94 Cuba - $1.68 India - $5.22 Kenya - $7.53 Libya - $0.32 Mexico - $1.39 Salvador - $0.61 Zambia - $1.55 MOONs have given those who are from less-than-fortunate backgrounds a vessel to make change in their life through providing for this sub. This is just amazing. As always, I wish you all the best🥳 submitted by /u/EthereumDream [link] [comments]
