I wouldn't. The main problem isn't with the compatibility, etc. In fact, most of the wallets do actually offer a portable version. The main issue is with the security.

If you're going to bring the portable wallet around, you could very well be losing it if you forget to bring it along after using it on the computer. Public computers aren't exactly safe at all, using your wallet on it could very well have it being compromised. If you need portability, consider getting a mobile wallet on your phone; doesn't address the first point but it addresses the second.

A portable hard drive is relatively heavy and unreliable at times. It's not rational to be bringing around a bulky metallic case when your main function is to have a portable wallet. Hard drive (not SSDs) are very prone to failure if you drop them.

Announcements / Human Hash
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:17:39 pm »
There is a great development that can solve a lot of problems and can open the door to new features, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to build this feature.
The idea is to build an "hash" to identify a real person. There must be 3 property.

1) for every human must be a unique hash id
2) it is not possible to build this hash id without the real person ( it is not possible to build in an automatic way these id)
3) decentralized , without a certifier authority

For example a not working solution can be something related to the dna code , build an hash from the dna but violate the point 2 because is possible to build in automatic false hash id ...

Any idea for a solution?

Announcements / Is "cryptocurrency" a good term?
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:16:22 pm »
Recently I've started thinking that the word "cryptocurrency" does a pretty poor job at describing what it's all about. The "crypto" part does not describe the main properties - decentralization and openness, cryptography is simply a tool for achieving them, and doesn't necessarily bring those properties. "Currency" is a pretty narrow economic term, which refers to money in active circulation, but in our case we have digital units that can have many use cases and most notably they allow building applications on top of them. The "currency" part is also used by opponents to claim that they are in fact inherently worthless by pointing out their high volatility and lack of scalability - two factors that indeed make them almost unusable for daily transactions for average user at the moment.


Announcements / What is the good place to start testing lightning
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:15:25 pm »
I'm not aware that there is any alternative Lightning forum to go to.

You need (in order):

    Bitcoin Core installed
    A sync'ed copy of the Testnet blockchain
    Some Testnet coins (there are faucets available, I believe)
    A lightning node installed

Ask if you need any help with these main steps

Okay okay, before you rush and say "To prevent spam attacks!!", please wait and read this whole thread.

^The above argument is what I hear all the time. However, there is something not quite right about that reasoning. It doesn't make sense.

Let's start with a little background info...

Satoshi implemented the 1 MB blocksize limit without telling anyone; He just did it randomly. There was no discussion beforehand and after he did it, he did not mention it anywhere. People had to look at the code/use it to see the change. The mannerism in which the 1 MB blocksize limit was added is already strange in itself and as soon as it was done, debates/arguments among the community started happening.

Satoshi never told people that the 1 MB limit was to prevent spam - its just what everyone inferred.

Okay... history lesson over.

Now here is why it doesnt make sense:

The process of a transaction getting confirmed and added to the blockchain goes like this:

1) Tx. is broadcast with a custom fee
2) Tx. is added to the mempool
3) Miner collects tx. from the mempool (usually they will pic tx. based on which has the highest fee and work their way down from there)
4) Miner adds tx. to their block
5) Miner calculates the proof of work
6) Miner publishes block to the blockchain

Okay now we have the process outlined we can analyse the miners incentives/behaviour. I'll be using game theory to explain this and here is where it gets interesting.

The miners main goal is to make profit. This is why he adds tx. to his block in the first place (it allows for more fees and thus, more profits). So we can assume that without the blocksize limit, the miners would add infinite tx. to their block right? WRONG!

Allow me to explain:

Look at step 3.. Collecting the tx. from the mempool and adding it to their block takes a set amount of time and the longer that the miner spends collecting the tx. and adding it to their block, the less time they can spend calculating the proof of work - thereby giving their competition (other miners) the edge. The miners would naturally (based on game theory) find a nash equilibrium between collecting as many tx. as possible and finding enough time to calculate the proof of work in order to give them the maximum profitability. Thus, we can assume, that without a blocksize limit (infinite), the block size would stay relatively the same.

This is why an infinite block size limit is not an issue. I honestly cannot understand why he added the 1 MB limit.
Can someone please, please explain? I have been pondering this for over a month now. Thanks.

Announcements / Blockchain 3.0
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:26:56 pm »
Who will be named Blockchain 3.0. Direct Acyclic Graph or DAG may be it.
DAG is a directed graph data structure that uses a topological ordering. The sequence can only go from earlier to later.
DAG is often applied to problems related to data processing, scheduling, finding the best route in navigation, and data compression.

News / Best altcoins to invest this year
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:15:14 pm »
I think the best coins to get involved with in 2018 are going to be privacy coins and coins that focus on faster transactions with big block sizes and perhaps even zero fees. Basically the things that bitcoin struggle with other coins will pick up the slack and these coins will do quite well in my opinion.
this 2018, is remarkable year for all of us. as per my experience i can recommended these alt coins


wabi is important because low supply always there. working project always. if you planning to put more funds please put on potential ico's also. i have some ico's with great potential.


those have premium culture. please do your own research before investing.

News / How to get more profit?
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:13:15 pm »
Airdrops are good free money but not all are worth to join and to hold. I find day trading as a bad habit of trading in my experience but I know there are traders there are that earning more than enough. But that's my experience, I regret that I did day trading before and I transferred my long term holding to day trading and that's my mistake. And as a solution, I still have chosen coins to day trade and retain my long term holding. I'm ignoring deeponion to be honest.

News / Token or coin?
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:10:41 pm »
Do you prefer investing in tokens or coins? What is the difference for you? And why would you prefer one to another?

For example, KickCity event platform launches token sale the next week. The platform will let users get reward (in crypto, KCY token) for event promotion. The token will exist inside the platform. There will be no opportunity to use the token outside the platform. However, the token will be on exchange

So your ideas?  Smiley

News / what is your plan?
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:09:43 pm »
I would ideally love to buy land and build a passive smart home and get a driverless car, sort all our health out and not be worrying about paying bills and every day hassles. I would also love to be able to get my Son married off with perhaps a deposit on a house for him and his wedding costs and help to pay off his mortgage whenever that happens. I would love to be able to help extended friends and family in need. So many dreams that crypto allows us to dream but at the moment am very far from all these goals. At least though so far it helps pay the bills and living costs, now that in itself is something. I would never want to cash out all my stash., I would try to reach one goal first take some out, then do again but making sure a new batch of coins replaces some of the sold ones. I don't need a huge house just two bedrooms and a home/office so I can work nicely at home. We are only 2 adults so no need for lambos and excesses. just live well, eat well and be able to afford to go on vacation now and then and live a healthy and happy life.

News / Tactics When Market is Falling
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:06:53 pm »
When it is falling, a lot of people will ask you to buy or to hold, but you should look for the reasons why the price is falling, if its caused by usual correction then holding or buying is already correct, but if you found something suspicious, like the coin developer want to scammed people or there are weakness in the coin, then you should sell, investing in alt coin need patience and need a strong mind

News / Bounty or Airdrop?
« on: January 24, 2018, 06:05:23 pm »
It's better to earn real tokens, not fake ones as most of these ICO's are scams and they promise in any method to scam people. I joined so many Airdrops, bounties, but only 2 to 3 paid me and they were in less price. I wasted my time by promoting them on Social media sites.
I suggest you to discover much, but after all these also they don't pay anything for us.
