    Bulls do that 2 times in the 90's (1991-1992-1993 & 1996-1997-1998), Lakers did it too in 2000-2001-2002. And in the 60's Boston win for 8 consecutive years.

    As we know (or not) Shapeshift had to change their business model recently, it was an place where you bought cryptos without revealing your identity but they had to compell with the law and are now asking a full KYC registration which kill the best part of the service.
    But they are not the only one on the field and there is still few options if you want to enjoy the "anonymous" way of life to buy BTC.

    Some are already weel known like Changelly or Coinswitch, some will have their spotlight time with the "death" of Shapeshift (like Flyp.me or Changenow). And this list only provide 4 sites but there is more than that (Metamorph Pro, Faa.st, ..)

    Hey ho!
    I will tell you about my story about stop smoking. Maybe it will inspire you to stop or give you the right motivation to follow my example.
    Why did I want to stop smoking?
    Well. Not only the growing pressure from society and my missing money was reason enough to stop with this "bad habit". First of all was my healthstatus. Coughing.. slime in my throat. My gums in a bad shape and of course the teeth. Also the risk of (particularly lung cancer) cancer hovering above me.
    You could say that people smoke and get over 100 years old. Yeah, things like that happen. But the fact remains, that the health problems outgrow those "good news" for smoker. For me I didn't want to put it on risk anymore.
    Therefore I set a date to stop.
    What was the hard part?
    The fear. Having the fear that I would miss cigarettes. Miss the occasions of being around other ones (smokers) and that I don't know how to fill up these gaps of time. To sum it up... its more a psychological thing to stop than physically.
    So when the moment came, I was nervous and unsure if I could do it. But I smoked the last cigarette and threw the tobacco into the bin somewhere outside (out of reach :D). I gotta say.. I had some tough days at that time. Having a small surgery and being not at home and so on.
    There were often thoughts of "god dammit. Just smoke, whatever". But I stayed strong. I still do. I'm through with it for 4 months and 15 days.
    How bad are the cravings?
    I gotta say.. it depends. I bet that someone who use to smoke two packs a day will have a harder time than someone who only kills 5 cigs a day.
    As mentioned before, the cravings were strong. Particularly the first two weeks. Over time it got easier to withstand them. You find easy routines and tricks to manage that. Somewhen you stop thinking about having a smoke.
    But after four months.. -  not gonna lie here - I still have cravings. And they're strong and I wanted to give in some times now. I didn't. I know that will get better and its just a phase, mom! But to be honest.. it fills me a little with fear, that the cravings never will let off me. And I guess this is the bitter truth. Its an addiction.
    What changed after stopping?
    A lot:
    No coughing No slime in throat Better breathing Heart goes more easy Blood pressure went down Taste got slightly better Boom. More than enough reason to stop. Just imagine that this things going bad, when you consume cigarettes and nicotine.
    What helped me stopping?
    For some.. the book from Allen Carr's easy way to stop smoking. Very easily. I did it once and it worked veyr good.. but I had one cigarette one time and ruined it.
    The second time.. it didn't really help.. But I stumbled upon this reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/stopsmoking/
    And the app:
    Google Playstore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.portablepixels.smokefree&hl=en
    Apple Appstore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/smoke-free-quit-smoking-now/id577767592?ls=1&mt=8
    I still use the app and the reddit. Especially when I get weak or to exchange knowledge and experience and help others to stop.
     
    I hope I could give some insight about stopping and why you should. There is no benefit in smoking, believe me. I live a better life without cigarettes. I'm open for discussion and questions.. just shoot them at me :)!

    Kargai got a reaction from MrNice23 in Blockchain Could Tackle Pressing Environmental Challenges   
    At least that's what said the World Economic Forum in a recent report. Even if they noticed the inefficiencies in proof-of-work blockchains they also saw some positive potential impact on the environment.
    According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC, who conducted the study) there is an opening "for fresh ideas to harness this nascent technology to help deliver big gains for our environment... Blockchain could "create a sustainability revolution." "
    They focused their attention on 6 key areas like climate change, healthy oceans, water security, clean air, etc. 
    But they realize that some  of the actuals Proof-of-Work blockchains can hurt that progress if they don't turn to a Proof-of-Stake or Chia protocol. They will continue to explore and develop that first study in the near future.
    The full study can be read here :https://www.pwc.com/gx/en/sustainability/assets/blockchain-for-a-better-planet.pdf

    Kargai reacted to Seuntjie in DiceBot - The most awesomest betting bot for Bitcoin Dice Games   
    If you're talking about pre-rolling, there's a combination of settings to enable that. Set your multiplier to 1 (so that your bet doesn't change), set your multiplier mode to change once. Then for the setting "after x bets, time multiplier by y", set x to number of prerolls you want to do, and y to what you want your multiplier to be after pre-rolling.
     
    Then you can set it to multiply after every z losses in a row, in stead of every loss (bottomish of the multiply on loss box). You just need to ensure that your settings match. For example if you change your multiplier to 2 after 99 bets, but multiply after every 49 bets, your bet is only going to be multiplied after a total of (49*3) bets. (after at 49 bets, multiply by 1, after 98 total bets, multiply by 1, after 99 total bets, multiplier is changed to 2, after 137 total bets, multiply by 2). You can also look at the setting "after a losses, change bet to b"

    Centralized mapping services like GPS (owned by the U.S. government and operated by the Air Force) are vulnerable and unreliable according to the FOAM co-founder.
    That's the reason why he wanted to create an application using smart contract technology via the Ethereum blockchain. He created FOAM : https://foam.space/.

    FOAM's solution is to spread the work of cartography among a diffuse network of individual users, who register locations on the FOAM map using a cryptographic technique called proof of location. FOAM is targeting several use cases, from games to supply chain management.
    Source : https://www.coindesk.com/foam-is-live-decentralized-world-map-launches-on-ethereum/
    The users will be rewarded in FOAM tokens to motivete them to use the dApp and people will trade those tokens to reward, challenge and vote the accuracy of the newly registered locations.
    What ya think about it ? Is a Google Maps on blockchain is of some sort of interest for you ?

    I know we have lot of pinoys and pinays on this forum so the news could interest some of you  
    Actually the Philippines Peso (PHP) is facing a high inflation rate which (6.4%) with an exchange rate of 1 PHP = $0.019. Which lead philipinos to exchange some of their FIAT money to cryptos. In fact in august the average sum was around 500.000$ traded between both each week.
    That could be explain because PH government seem pretty open and positive about cryptos in general, they recently approved 2 applications for new crypto exchanges, and soon they will release draft rules to help govern cryptocurrency exchanges. The biggest bank (UnionBank) plan to get involve in mining operation, etc.

    Kargai got a reaction from SEMPAXs in What's the future for Ethereum ?   
    Today the Ethereum price dropped under 200$ ... his lower price since more than a year, back to before the crypto market exploded.
    Than the co-founder Vitalik Buterin said there is very little chance a crypto coin will do a 1000x ROI ... and the price drop directly. Right now we are at 194$.
    Plus we can read that more and more devs are turning their back to the Ethereum blockchain to launch their project and prefer to choose other blockchains like EOS, NEO or Stellar.
    And not only ETH is losing value in USD $ but also compared to BTC, that's the chart of the last 3 months (the drop  in BTC is even more hurtful). It's a 85 percent drop from its all-time high of $1,300 in January.

    But others still believe in the coin since a lot of existing projects are running on the ETH blockchain, the fact that they have a decent roadmap ahead of them (moving from PoW to PoS & co) and the hope that the actual bear market will turn bullish again at one point in the future + the fact that ETH is well established as a brand.
    What do you think ?
    Personally i'm not a big fan of ETH but I believe it will go upward at one point, 500$ don't seem too hard to reach again when the market will boom again in few months.
