BitCoin falling like a Dotcom

I disagree its not an issue - I am constantly surprised by transactions showing up on my account for no reason.   And I have no direct ability to turn them off except at the whim of my bank who always says to talk to the merchant first.  That means I don't have direct control over my bank account and people who have my CC# can constantly nickel and dime me.

 


Are you sure you aren’t sleep ordering things or something? I’ve had maybe one items that wasn’t legit in my life and I didn’t have any issues with the bank. 
 

Now some companies deliberately make it difficult to cancel subscriptions.

We’ve talked about some of the applications in making payments easier, but the middlemen could still own a big portion of that market by reducing fees and providing better ease of use/guarantees in countries where there is trust in central authorities.

 

The crypto assets area is important though. Folks who don’t want to collect physical assets still want unique digital works of art or other digital assets,  and the asset creators could benefit from controlling licensing, ongoing resale, royalties etc. 

 

ETH is favored to enable these types of assets.

That... is not a problem I’ve had or heard of before. 
 

except where someone’s card info is stolen and it’s never reported/changed 

I signed up for MLB.TV last year as I was out of market for the Orioles,  little did I know there's apparently some automatically renewal and they dropped a nice fat $100 charge just before the season begin, which I got zero notification for and only noticed on my statment. 

 

I did just recently get it reverted, however its a pain to think I have to constantly check my statements and remember everything I every signed up for. 

 

Then there's this $20 renters insurance payment I paid like a few extra months for because it was difficult to cancel. 

 

I would sooner just be able to verify every payment through my cell phone and be done with it.   I would setup a small crypto account and pay out of that, and occassionally transfer money into it from my bank.

Forgetting to cancel your subscriptions on time is not an indictment of the existing financial system. Plus, this is super easy to reverse. I’ve done it like four times already this year and spent no more than 5 minutes total. Lol

Isn't Doggie supposed to go crazy after the car guy appears on SNL this weekend?

Does anyone have any experience/feedback on gate.io?

 

You must be new here because the collective knowledge about all things related to crypto on this thread is slightly above

New to the thread, certainly. Lol. Though I just started reading the beginning of it to see if an answer might have already been given.

 

Volsmet wasn’t being very nice at the beginning, I’m trying to see if that gets better later on.

We are all jealous of his yacht and lambos now. It's all good. We are all just having a bit of fun with crypto investing and trying to learn more. I think the majority in here are skeptical of the real world applications while a few really believe in it.  We all we recognize it's a vehicle to potentially make some money before losing it all in an epic crash. 😅

Here’s an example of NFTs.

 

Jesse Frohman who did the last photo shoot with Nirvana. Selling 100+ images and the current bid is 50 ETH.

 

https://nft.jessefrohman.com/the-last-session

 

Some pretty cool photos in that collection. Someone is willing to pay $170k to own it.

 

 

 

I have to say that NFTs are a huge waste of money and energy.

Why? Giving the artist/creator and the customer better control over assets versus relying on middlemen to take an oversized cut.

 

People pay enormous sums for physical arts of work when they can get a copy for much less which is indistinguishable from the original.

Someone paid almost $3 million for Jack's first tweet. Something that will forever be on the internet. Someone wants to buy some digital art, that's fine, but the NFT world is a lot of really dumb ****. Like NFTs that are just sports highlights.

Surely there's a market for the HershCoin where people can own a piece of you.
