    • Look who’s back! One Coin? Never heard of it, how mazing how many funds can be gathered via a mere fraud….

      • It was promoted by affiliate marketers who promoted it to idiots.

        • Hahahaha… I just made a post and one of my points for detecting a crypto scam by checking if it is promoted under the MLM model which was the case with this Onecoin!!!

          We have a lot of these folks here in my country Uganda and they have spread all over the country unfortunately.
          I hope they are shut down hehehe.

  • The allegations of laundering money via Bitcoin is bullshit

    Whenever there is a money laundering related to Bitcoin, some media outlets start whining about how Bitcoin is prone to money laundering. But these same media outlets keep silent when trillions of dollars are laundered under the rader.

    I don’t…

    • You are right with this conclusion, but when one dives a little deeper in the technical options, the original laundering step can be made (almost) untraceble (using mixers etc). But the forensic side is also developing expertise. A never ending race…

      • The mixer are centralized entities. If regulators want, they can force the mixer company owners to reveal the owners.

        • didn’t realize that, but I think it is a good thing. Misuse of crypto’s is damaging the reputation. If we abandon technology because it has criminal use also, we should still be in the dark ages… (or even before that, even fire can be misused 🙂 But you are right, in the end, it is much more transparent system then fiat changing hands.

    • They are just afraid of competition. Like you said, it’s all “public” on the blockchain and they can’t have that. Great write up!

    • There’s a lot of truth in your article @littleboy

    Why Steem price went up yesterday

    You may have noticed that Steem price took a high jump in the last few days. The price went from 33 cents to 39 cents in the last 48 hours. That’s a price hike of over 17%. The price…

    • Never really got that into steem – but it is for sure on my to do list. Thanks for the share Littleboy – time to start what the token price does again from now 🙂

      • Steemit is not very impressive. They pretty much require you to upload your work there first or it gets marked as plagiarism, your post is only monetized for a week and the bots push crap posts into trending, while those trying to grow organically have a hard time.

        Then there are RC’s, which are Resource Credits that are linked to your wallet holdinds and run out very quickly until you hold more than 60SP, which isn’t easy to make these days.

        RC’s also severly limit interaction and cause people to be stingy with their votes. The result is that Steemit is a blogging platform only with temporary earning potential and not a Social Media Site at all. Interacting through Discord is where 95% of the socializing happens.

        So, while one can over time become successful on Steemit, It’s a lot of work for little return. Think of it as a skilled level job being paid at a volunteer level.

        Add to this that it claims to be decentralized, but only one entity is updating the Blockchain and the governance is just like EOS, where 20 witnesses pretty control the chain and is a huge bottleneck, which hardly adheres to the definition of decentralized.

        I just signed up for Bearshares, where payout lasts for 30 days instead of seven and with some big drama happening on Steemit this month, it’s future is in question and success will probably be found on one of the alternatives, rather than on Steemit. This is just an assumption so like anything else, don’t take this as financial advice.

        • Bearshares is by a guy from Pakistan. And they don’t appear to have the funding nor ability to maintain a big website that can compete with steemit.

          • In the end I’m still looking for a home for my content. Bearshares is just the newest one I registered as a user, but with all the new alternatives I’m sure Steemit won’t last.

            I have no reason to believe Bearshares will go anywhere and today my account was approved and it states in the email that Bearshares doesn’t endorse articles that criticize the platform nor it’s developer’s. This is going to hurt them as censorship is severely disliked in the crypto community.

            The last statement applies to Trybe as well, since moderation by a few is huge here and I’ve watched them ban at least one user for plagiarism without any input from the community, except mine where I report him.

            The Social Media lanscape has a long way to go yet.

        • I knew it was hard for the little guy there – but the rest is news to me as I spent almost 0 time over there. I actually signed up around the same time I joined Trybe but never got round to using it. Maybe with the rise of Trybe and other rival platforms they will see its in their best interests to adapt … or maybe as you seem to suggest, they are just too comfortable in their own shoes and one of the up and comers will shine brighter. Regardless, only time will tell, and thanks for the info 😉

      • Thanks for the comment.

    • Good update @littleboy the update on hivemind was certainly great, whereas the talk now is all about performance, i remember the talk about hivemind will enable groups and private messages, imo that’s much more relevant, but nobody seems to know anything about this…

    • I tried to find the reason why the price went up but i didn’t found until now. Thanks @Littleboy!

    • Dear friend thank you for sharing this wonderful post with us.
      Five star rating for your efforts.
      Thank you again dear friend.
