Introducing interest based groups and categories
It has been quite a ride since the launch of this community. We've been reading your feedback and listening to suggestions patiently.
One very common request has been the lack of categories/sections that allow like minded users to share without feeling pressured by people who have no interest in that category.
Good news! Our dev team has been busy building this feature for us. We're creating interest based groups that are tied to categories. Once a user joins that group they can share and discuss in those categories, ultimately meeting like minded people and sharing information specific to that niche.
At the moment we've shortlisted these 4 categories/groups in no specific order, feel free to suggest more. (If we see similar suggestions we'll consider making those)
We're growing at a tremendous pace all because of you. We aim to make it a place where we can meet people from all over the world and make new friends based on common interests without judgment.
Does anyone know how a Blockchain based smartphone works?
Well, this may or may not be based on some personal experience.
A beautiful tragedy they call me,
And I accept it with all my modesty,
Thinking t's just another day, another knock at the door,
And now I doubt if my nerves can take it any more.
You cry my pain a thousand rivers,
Write me a million words
Take away all my tears
Only for me to remember you from broken frames and in those midnight blurs.
You play with my mind, thinking it's my heart
It stopped working long ago, sweetheart.
Feed my brain all those stupid lies,
And then announce on the streets,
"Look at that fucker, she cries."
Oh, how you've healed me,
My tears have stopped, yes
But I stand here in the pool of blood, being your "prettiest mess",
Oh, how well you've helped me.
This morning air so calm and fresh,
And I'm losing myself into it,
I'm your "asshole under this flesh"
You could have better stabbed me bit by bit.
I never knew Devil has green eyes,
And that he too, lies.
You then, shout and scream and shout and run,
Trust me, all I hear is "I don't care. You don't matter to me, run run run".
So many laughs and kisses stuck in my head
So I hit it hard, smack it hard,
To realise it's made of lead.
Love is dimensionless they say,
Why didn't they tell me that about hate?
Laughing with blood shot eyes as I lay
I often think, did I tell you about myself too late?
Do you think ISLAM is a religion of terrorism ?
@Muslim First off, I apologize for @how-to-make-a behaviour. He's an idiot.
You don't try to refute my points, once again. They are valid, then. They are true.
Also, ad hominem arguments, arguments attacking the discussant instead of the thesis, are not valid in any way excepting arguments based on ethos, and that is largely irrelevant because we're on the internet.
The splitting of the moon - it's not proven that it's been split. There's a long hole on the moon, but no, it's not split in half and has not been in the same vein as you're thinking.
Also, could you just rephrase your mosquito part? I don't really understand that.
As for the glass part - no. His reasoning is the sound they make when they're crushed. It'd also require that life on Earth was silicon based, not carbon based, which nobody on this dirtball is.
Is bitcoin illegal and anonymous ?
People are increasingly using virtual money, like Bitcoin, that's not backed by any government. Many central banks have cautioned against it. But most authorities take a hands-off approach.
Here is how it is taken as in different countries
Bitcoin in Morocco
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency transactions were officially outlawed in Morocco in November 2017 seemingly in response to a major Moroccan digital services company, MTDS, announcing a few days prior that it would begin accepting Bitcoin payments.
Sending and receiving payments via any cryptocurrency in Morocco is punishable by fines.
Bitcoin in Bolivia
Cryptocurrencies have never been legal in Bolivia and the government has been known to enforce its anti-Bitcoin stance rather firmly. People caught using Bitcoin and other cryptocoins can be fined and a number of users have even been arrested on more than one occasion for trading and mining Bitcoin.
Bitcoin in Ecuador
Ecuador outlawed Bitcoin and other cryptocoins in mid-2014 as part of its financial reform plans.
The ban on Bitcoin was seen by many as a way to reduce competition with the country's own digital currency system (Sistema de Dinero Electrónico). This official Ecuadorian currency isn't a cryptocurrency and isn't based on blockchain technology. It's simply a digital money solution based on traditional money and valued after the American dollar.
Anti-Bitcoin laws don't appear to be too strict in Ecuador as there are still several ways to buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocoins domestically. Enforcement isn't as strict as other countries like Bolivia and Bitcoin is seen as something that might be technically illegal but is still used by a small number of the population.
Bitcoin in China
The trading of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies was banned in China in September 2017. Due to the technology being so popular in the country before the ban though, the change in law hasn't ceased its use completely and many Chinese people continue to trade cryptocoins via in-person trades and chat apps like Telegram and WeChat.
The Chinese government appears to target professional cryptocurrency trading companies over individuals.
Bitcoin in Nepal
Nepal's stance on many aspects of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is a little ambiguous however it has been confirmed that the trading of Bitcoin is considered illegal following several arrests of Bitcoin traders in 2017 that resulted in a combination of fines and jail terms for those involved. Attempting to use Bitcoin and other cryptocoins in Nepal is not recommended.
Bitcoin Laws Change as Much as Bitcoin's Price
Due to how new cryptocurrency technology is, most countries are still trying to figure out how to adapt to the numerous digital currencies that have sprung up in the past decade.
There remains a lot of debate globally around not only if Bitcoin and other cryptocoins should be recognized as legal tender but also if they should be taxable, how cryptocurrency trading should be regulated, and whether or not governments should monitor mining (the process in which cryptocurrency transactions are processed).
Cryptocurrency laws frequently update in many countries as the technology evolves and usage increases.
Bitcoin and International Travel
Laws and regulations relating to Bitcoin and other cryptocoins can change several times a year as financial institutions adapt to the market and government opinion shifts.
If planning a trip overseas, it's highly recommended to research the target country's Bitcoin policies beforehand via an official government website. This is especially important if travelling for business.
It's unlikely, as a tourist, that you'll be arrested in a country where cryptocurrency is banned for simply having a Bitcoin wallet on your smartphone or for carrying your Ledger Nano S hardware wallet in your pocket. Simply don't ask to pay in Bitcoin where it's not allowed and be careful of strangers encouraging you to do so if it's against the law.
Now, is it anonymous or traceable?
In general, Bitcoin is traceable.
All transactions are stored in a distributed public ledger called a block chain. It means every transaction since the early days of Bitcoin is there. There are many methods of forensic analysis in realm of cryptocurrency to identify users and their activities, though they are more complicated than conventional financial forensics.
In your case, when you buy coins on an exchange, you deposit funds there first. Although there are ways to do this with a high degree of anonymity through cash or money orders, the exchanges expect bank wire transfers or credit cards usually which are very personalised. Therefore all your activities on the exchange are identifiable internally and accounted perfectly. If the exchange receives a warrant from the local or federal authorities in case of any criminal activity, it releases all related data to them. When you withdraw your coins to an address (public key actually) not used previously, the exchange sends them from their hot wallet refilled with their cold storage or incoming transfers of the other traders. No one except you knows who owns this destination address, i.e. possesses the private key. Even the exchange doesn't know it for sure because you can send your coins to any third party such as your spouse, friend, relative or whoever else. However the forensic analysis can tell these coins originate from this exchange, so there is no absolute anonymity.
If you are interested in a high level of anonymity for your existing coins, you may transfer them through several hot wallets of high volume. It could be exchanges, gambling sites, public mixers, etc. This is like using a chain of proxies to get a less traceable Internet connection. However if you'd like the best anonymity possible, you need to purchase some kind of mining equipment and solo mine a block with a generation transaction (coin base) to a new address. This reward is very anonymous with no financial trail. Pool mining is less anonymous, but higher considerably than buying on exchanges. There are also pools not requiring even your email address and not keeping any usage logs such as the P2Pool network. So, you can buy as much anonymity as you need with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Do you think Aliens exist or there is no life except on earth?
@sarah There are none we have discovered yet. We can only make guesses and speculations of the probability for Extraterrestrial life to exist based on the number of galaxies(500 billion and more) that exist in the observable and unobservable expanse of the universe. The probability is based on an equation called the Drake Equation. The Drake Equation has been used to estimate the number of technologically advanced species in the universe. So the answer is a "maybe".
Is It Ethical to Eat Meat?
Vegetarians and meat eaters never tire of rehashing this age-old ethical dilemma. Even scientists don’t agree if humans are more like herbivores or carnivores. Most agree we are omnivores, which means we are capable of subsisting on a plant-based or flesh-based diet. On the one hand, people don’t need to eat animals to survive, so perhaps it’s kinder not ?
Has anyone ever seen God? Does it exist?
@alwaysstranger some people can dismiss it yes. It's up to what you believe in based on your experiences. I have my own experiences which make what I believe in. The truth though will be known no matter what and it's possible you could be wrong as well about there not being a God, you see, science has not discovered everything there is to know about the universe, therefore, they don't know it all either. They know some, and other things are theory based. We will know the truth once we pass away (because we will eventually) we are not immortal as you know.
