I would include this link to your post, since otherwise the mods will remove it.

The BRI is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government, involving 136 countries and more than 30 international organizations across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and more. According to Chinese state council, by the end of August 2019, the Chinese government had signed 195 Belt and Road cooperation documents, covering business on a global scale.

It’s not a good day if vechain doenst have a more bullish news than any top 10 crypto has ever had and doesnt go down 5-10%

How is this project still not top 20? Might pull an ETH type run in 2020..

I’m convinced people simply do not understand what they are looking at.

Where do you find 14 year olds that can write these articles? I want to hire him and pay him less than minimum wages

“As a temporary measure, Steering Committee and Authority Nodes voted for 469 wallets and 727 million VET to be locked and effectively burned. An all-stakeholders voting on VeVote (Economic and X node holders) will commence soon to vote whether to lift or continue the blacklist.”

The thief’s addresses/funds blocked at the masternode level? Bad idea in my opinion.

lol, how can a shipment be ‘powered’ by a blockchain.

Using marketing terms with blockchain like it’s 2017.

It’s like saying my personal finances are ‘powered’ by an Excel sheet. Powered by MS Excel makes a little bit more sense, but it still pretty dumb.

Most difficult part is keeping the heat transfer efficient with such low temperature gradient, but…

Run your miners with liquid coolers. Use the heat to boil a working fluid that turns a turbine that charges your electric vehicle.

I always wanted to make a infinity mirror.

This is like infinity mirror on 3D level.

Maybe just me but it seems like that comment is trying to point out the issue and not supporting it.

Saffron’s coming back to Delhi.

Their support on ground is stronger than ever.

And I understand it’s a hard one to digest.

The detention centres aren’t fully functional, the Assam one isn’t even complete yet. The confusion here is the mini ‘Rain Baseras’ that were indeed being used as detention camps and not centres (also where 28 people lost their lives). So the PM is technically correct that there are no functioning detention centres, yet.

What’s happening in Assam won’t happen in Delhi. Reason being that Assam isn’t protesting against the religious groups but against ethnic changes, and their concerns are genuine.

It’s only a matter of time before DEX aggregators compete head on with big centralized exchanges like Binance.

2020 gonna be interesting

Good news for bancor.

It’s also Macfee company, I know a lot of people here dont like him, but that guy knows what he is doing.

“If you hold a project’s token, you can now easily acquire a piece of its liquidity on a DEX and collect fees from its trade volume.” I see that saying a lot lately, that great and all, but someone here actually done it and make some profit? How it really works?

One of the most interesting things about Gödel’s Incompleteness theorem must surely be how little effect it has had on the day to day practice of mathematical research. It’s one of the most profound mathematical results in the last 100 years, and yet outside foundational fields like axiomatic set theory (Cohen’s work on the Continuum Hypothesis comes to mind) it’s quite possible to completely ignore the existence of undecideable statements.

What is the best place to buy cryptocurrency with USD? Meaning safe , easy, and lower fees? I bought 1 eth yesterday with my debit card from coin base and got a $20 fee (ridiculous right!) So what are your recommendations for converting USD into a crypto and where should i convert that crypto to another crypto? Thanks guys im still figuring things out 🙂

Coinbase is generally regarded as the easiest. Just beware that when the market goes down and a lot of people want to buy, Coinbase likes to go down for “maintenance.”

This happened yesterday when trying to buy LTC.

The price went up over a dollar by the time I was able to finally make a purchase.

Then again, all of the websites went down at some point yesterday.

Which are the best places to use for buying bitcoin? I’m located in the US (but have an EU office address & bank if that helps?).

I did read that Coinbase was the go-to site for beginner investors. Though after seeing how coins were supposedly taken from users during the recent fork/split event, I think it would be wise to use an alternative to Coinbase. Correct me if I’m wrong here?

I’ve always wanted to buy some bitcoin and hold on for a couple of years as an investment, but the potential splitting of the coin & community scared me off.

Now with the hard fork having gone well, I’m remembering a bitcoin professional predicting an unprecedented rally of the price. Also, with increasingly solid market fundamentals I strongly believe there will be some rallying to come.

LocalBitcoins has been in business for YEARS and still going strong.

Here’s a good collection of bitcoin trading sites where you’ll find some solid coinbase alternatives.

As others have said here, Coinbase’s position on the new token should not be a reason not to use their exchange.

Coinbase have their weaknesses, but this was not one of them.

In fact, they showed good leadership in protecting user safety and funds integrity throughout the hard fork. Now that things have stabled out, Coinbase have recently committed to crediting all user accounts with the new chain split token.

Yes, the fundamentals for Bitcoin are strong & I see it growing 2x or more during this 2017 bull market, but remember that volatility will be high also (Erik Voorhees also cautions about this).

Yes and no, some of the best sites to buy bitcoin have shown to be extra cautious about crediting users’ accounts with the new chain token. In my opinion these places should be applauded for opting for safety first.

how so? I feel that many people have changed their opinion of which are the best sites for buying bitcoin now that the hard fork has happened.

Coinbase is recommended for beginners because it functions more like a bank than a currency exchange. You may convert your USD to BTC there without needing to understand bid and ask prices, or limit and market orders. They also may be the most secure custodial online wallet, though large amounts of BTC should really be held in a hardware wallet.

Coinbase also operates the GDAX exchange, where you can trade USD for BTC for free or for a much smaller fee (and generally better exchange rate).

The only other exchange I feel comfortable recommending is Bitstamp.

They gave plenty of warning to get your coins off of there if you wanted BCH, and more importantly, THEY PAID OUT THE LOSERS OF THAT FLASH CRASH FROM THEIR OWN FUNDS.

They didn’t rollback the trades; the winners kept their winnings. That is AMAZING.

Plus, their interface is easy to use, and their fees are .1% to take, free to make.

I’m interested in buying to hold for a year or two.

I know that the price is high and it’s recommended to only buy bitcoin in “the dip”.

However I strongly feel it will go higher.

Having read through a couple of forums and wikis, I noticed that most of the recommended places to buy bitcoin are no longer online or have shut down.

I saw this with bitmarket, tradehill, and (famous?) mtgox websites all no longer sell btc.

It seems there is a big turnover of exchanges over the years.

Which sites do initiated users recommend for purchasing bitcoin easily in 2017? I may go on to try trading too, so any advice for this would be great also.

LocalBitcoins has been in business for YEARS and still going strong. Do not risk your money, be safe.

P.S.

There’s a regularly updated list of bitcoin exchanges: https://www.bestbitcoinexchange.io/ for buying 1st time and trading professionally.

As others have mentioned here, Localbitcoins is one of the best sites to buy bitcoin. I say this because you’ll be doing p2p trading, meaning that as a beginner your first purchase will be from another bitcoiner in your country / area. This is a great way to start, as you’ll meet or speak to real community members – in contrast to buying from an exchange (which may not even speak your language for that matter).

Another alternative place to buy bitcoin (for larger amounts) is Kraken (good in Europe, USA, and Canada), Bitstamp (same regions as Kraken + credit card purchase is possible), or Coinbase / Blockchaininfo (visa or mastercard possible but higher fees and more ID checking delays).

P.S.

Don’t forget to use the navigation tab to locate offers in your country.

Absolutely agree with you! LocalBitcoins is one of the most private ways to purchase bitcoins. In some countries it is the only way to buy bitcoins and it allows you to buy bitcoins with many payment methods:)))

Depending on your location, you may get a crap price or completely scammed.

Some people were saying that this is the best site to buy bitcoin.

Though I’m curious to know what makes it better than the other proposed here in your opinion?

Seconded.

if you try to time the market you will fail.

dollar cost average over a long period of time.

yes good point.

As another redditor stated above, it looks like a better strategy to simple buy, hold, and further expand my position when the price dipping opportunity arises.

thank you for mentioning this.

its exactly how i like to build long term positions.

once you believe in the value of an asset that can be volatile i think this is the best way to go about it.

If you’re interested in starting a mining business, I have a direct plug for good miners. Bitcoin mining can still be fun and even profitable if you have cheap electricity and get the best and most efficient Bitcoin mining hardware.

Hello I’ve been using Newton to buy crypto and transfer it to my wallet for months now, and have no issues.

But yesterday I sent BTC to my hardware wallet and it showed up instantaneously.

Then I sent ETH and it has not shown up for 16 hours now.

I used the scan QR option to add my address.

I talked to KeepKey and they said it’s not an issue on their side but probably on Newton’s.

I have already contacted Newton support and I am waiting on a response.

Just wanted to hear from you guys if you have experienced something like this.

Prefer to avoid KYC on general principle — it’s a peer to peer decentralized currency, after all, so if I’m doing ID verifying  I would rather do it directly with a seller than register with an exchange. I don’t particularly need anonymity and all the work involved to REALLY stay anonymous; just prefer privacy and involving as few outside parties as possible in general.

It costs much more $$ to avoid KYC, right? It appears to cost like 20% more to buy BTC with USD on Cardcoins.com or ATMs than at exchanges like Binance.
