Bitcoin mining is analogous to the mining of gold, but its digital form. The process involves specialized computers solving algorithmic equations or hash functions. These problems help miners to confirm blocks of transactions held within the network. Bitcoin mining provides a reward for miners by paying out in Bitcoin in turn the miners confirm transactions on the blockchain. Miners introduce new Bitcoin into the network and also secure the system with transaction confirmation.

How did people figure out what Bitcoin was in 2009.
I understand that only a few people were interested in Bitcoin in 2009. I am curious on how people even looked up things on the internet, and found out about Bitcoin? What did people in 2009 search on the internet, to get in contact with Satoshi Nakamoto. What were the initial people that invested in Bitcoin interested in. How do you think people discovered Bitcoin in 2009, 2010, and 2011. This is a mystery to me, and I would like to know. Thank you, lettuce_solve_this 🥬 🥬 🥬
Hi, I have been playing Poker for almost 10 years live, at one point it was my job, and I thought trying out an online Poker Site would be great fun. I saw online Ignition uses Bitcoin which I thought was a great idea despite the volatility in the Crypto market. I thought I would try HU at a low stakes just to dip my toes in the water and get a feel for the website. I was liking the website and was very successful at NL100 playing only four tables. But then I met my rival. This is where in my opinion I felt that cheating was going on. Of course I have no hard evidence but just hear what I have to say. Although my memory isn’t perfect card for card I am being as honest as possible. I bought into the table at minimum buy in because why not, and saw wow this guy has more than two maximum buy ins. We played and to be honest I forgot exactly how I busted the first time but I busted to him, no biggie, I rebought. I felt this guy really wasn’t that good, he wouldn’t protect blinds and I could seriously bully him around. Alarms started ringing when I had K 10 and I 3 bet to 5x BB pre flop and he called, the board came K 5 7 (That was the exact board by memory). I raise to half pot and he calls. The turn comes a 2 so I felt that didn’t help him at all. I raise him and this guy shoves. I thought a long time, I have raised him every street and he shoves but I ended up calling. I have top pair and he has ACE HIGH. I thought “You idiot”, then the river comes an ACE. That was when my suspicions started. I started to notice that he was easy to bully when I had a good hand, as soon as I had a bad hand he raised me back. I was confused, this guy was a clairvoyant, and his play was IMO VERY bad. My third bust was when I had pocket fives, he shoves all in and I after some time I call. Show our cards and he has pocket twos vs my pocket fives, I thought this was fantastic. The board, I kid you not, comes 2 2 and something. He flopped quads... That was when I drew the line, and I understand it’s HU but who in their right mind shoves with pocket twos pre flop. It was terrible play and before me he was doing this to many other people if he started with two max buy ins. The whole time playing him after the first bust I was just blown away and very suspicious. I left the table, I googled Ignition cheaters and there have been people on forums complaining about this only for replies “That’s variance” or “He got lucky” without any hand breakdown. And I also did more research and there are ZERO moderators and no way you can report people, and apparently the site is easy to use third party software, for example on phone it uses a website instead of an app, and there is software out there that can change the browser to that a phone uses so you can use the website on your computer without the app running checking background processes. Yo be honest I don’t even know for sure if the app on PC does check BG processes. What do you guys think? Please comment if you have had been victim of foul or suspicious play on this site. Thanks.
I have known about nofap for many years. But I didn't take it seriously until I felt the need to lose my virginity to an escort about a month ago (20M). At that moment I just realized just how out of touch I was with where my life was at. Not that there is anything wrong with using those services; but that I felt like I had no other option. I guess you could say that it is a catalyst for change. First observation: "most men lead lives of quiet desperation" My contract with my company that I worked for just ended at the same time I decided to change my life. The reason why this is important for is I did not feel fulfilled. As I had been working 9-5, going to college at night and studying at weekends for something that did not interest me. Why did I feel the need to do this to myself? let me start of by saying I know that everyone needs money, and most people earn that money from a job. But the fundamental flaw in my way of thinking is that I thought I need to be rich and successful to attract women in my life; Yeah it helps, however if your whole life becomes a grind in a desperate attempt to woo women. You will lose interest in your own passions, a piece of you will die, and the worst part of all as a result of not being true to yourself you may not get the relationship you deserve. Ok fine I am still in the 9-5 lifestyle, the difference now is I use the time I would've been going to college on things that i am passionate about (poker,traveling/out with mates,investing and weightlifting). Which leads my nicely onto my second point. Second observation: "you're an addict, so be addicted to something else" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_X6zWElJdw A quote taken from the sequel to my favorite. For me this should be slogan for nofap. Although PMO is terrible if abused, I did decided to break my 39 day streak today (twice ahaha oops). I am not overly fussed as I have built up the self discipline to know I could start another streak. My reason for doing so is that I found myself browsing an escort website again. Very very occasionally doing M with out P will be better for you. Touching on the quote, the reason why it is important is that my discipline has come from exploring my passions and filling my time with things I find to be worthwhile. I see this forum as self improvement page just as much a place for people to control their sexual urges. What you will realize when you have given nofap a fair go is there is more to life, also life feels better when you employ discipline. But if you decide to M make sure you're in a mental position whereby you will not spiral, a reboot is advised before. Third observation: "Anything worth doing is worth doing badly" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJV7HeHT4q4&t=526s This quote is the ultimate motivation, feel the words. Your a novice. You can become a master. If its worth it. Try. When you are starting to change your life, chances are you're not going to have much luck with women. Which is a real shame because the reason why men gravitate to PMO abuse is due to a lack of confidence. You get rejected and that will usually compound the bad feelings about yourself. Change your mind set a rejection is a good thing for me as I get the opportunity to improve and learn, don't you see the beauty in that? you get to be a better you. I appreciate that not everyone is perfect (see above how i broke my streak) but women are emotional creatures and you will need a strong character to attract the right women. Go out speak to women, use a dating app however make sure you use an abundance mindset and don't get bummed out by rejection. I went into a deli where my friend worked as a chef, I was attracted to the woman on the counter I kept trying to strike up a conversation, ignored me three times. To most people that would be damaging but just realize that people like that are not worth your time. Don't get needy. Fourth observation: WOMEN WANT A MAN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPjWvWN1xAc There is a popular study that reads something along the lines of a women has two kids and every second man has one. Why is that? if you do not have a women's respect she will not be in a relationship with you (well not a women you want anyway). This feeds into nofap as you are taking the first step by reclaiming your testosterone. You could write a whole series off books that wouldn't even scratch the surface of the female nature. But I will take a stab at making some salient points. Confidence, haven't you heard that one before: the only way to get good a talking to women is to talk to women, not fapping, working out and improving people skills with anyone you meet female/male old/young help but practice is key. Confidence 2.0 your are trying to find a compatible mate not just anyone. Tell them about your interests I managed to tell a women about why she should invest in Bitcoin,her eyes lit up seeing my passion for it. Women like a men with options you only get these options by improving yourself to become more compatible with women, given what I have outlined in this post. Don't get to needy it will make a women think that she is the absolute best you can do and women like to date upwards. See women's general need to date an older man. Lastly know your worth, women are emotional creatures. Sometimes they need us to tell it how it is. Final observation: "Don't pray for an easy life, pray to be stronger men" If this was easy everyone would be doing it successfully. It isn't. It may break you. You might embarrass your self. You may not be good enough. One thing is for certain you don't want to fall into old habits. So go ahead break yourself, move past that and see a stronger man in the mirror every morning. Embarrass yourself so many times that you are so comfortable in your own skin in any situation. Find out your not good enough, go away analyse come back and grow. One last point to any teens/ young adults reading this please enjoy your youth to the max. You owe it to yourself 60 years from now sat in an old folks home. With nothing but memories. You owe it to your self to meet that woman, you owe it to yourself to go on holiday and have the time of your life, you owe it to yourself to build start building a life that a woman can come into with a good environment to bring kids into. The choice is yours.

Online Cryptocurrency based Casino's Ever since the rise of Bitcoin there are quite some different cryptocurrencies available, for example: Ethereum, Ripple, Dash, Tezos, Litecoin and many many more.For more informatie about cryptocurrencies itself I would kindly suggest to look on the world-famous search-engine ;)One of the advantages of these digital currencies is that you can easily trade (buy or sell) the coins to your foreign currency f..e (USD). You can store your coins in a personal wallet (tip: buy a hardware wallet like a Ledger) to avoid losing your private- keys or getting hacked. Gambling with crypto Trading crypto on an exchange is a bit of gambling already, right?Buying and Selling coins with the intention to accumulate even more coins, or Fiat money with the risk of losing your funds if the trade doesn't end up as expected.There are tons of Bitcoin related gambling website's (a bit similar to online- casino's that only accepted fiat currencies back in the days).These site's mostly offer popular games like dice, roulette, blackjack, bust, poker, baccarat, craps and slots. Even live sportsbetting betting with crypto coins are available. (You can find more on that in our WiKi which is currently WiP). In order to start playing on those websites, you basically only need to visit the website, register a username (or for more security create an account, including a strong password and 2- Factor authentication [2-FA] enabled), select the cryptocurrency of choice and generate the deposit address. You can now send (deposit) coins from your own personal wallet / or from an exchange to the gamble site! Mostly after 1 confirmation on the blockchain your coin's will be visible and you can immediately start to test your luck! Note:
Some website's offer free "faucet" coins, which are often worth just a few dollar cents. Since faucets have been massively exploited by people and you will see less and less faucets.Instead you often receive a bonus for the amount in Bitcoin you wagered, during your game sessions and/or receive a certain % rakeback. Depending on your rank on the platform, the higher the rake back / bonuses will be.
About DonDice Dondice occidentalis is a species of sea slug, therefore the perfect nickname for online gambling. One of the most important things in online gambling is "patience & money- management", don't gamble money that you cannot afford to lose!!Only play for fun so you are not to generate some sort of income this will comes with stress and you will get in troubles very soon.Because of my experience as a (crypto) gambler, I've seen a lot of different website's offering cryptocurrency based gambling games. Some of these website's are legitimate companies that do feel legit, the support is great and the gaming experience in itself is mostly excellent. BUT there are like on any other spot on the internet "scammers" who run these casino's and basically steal your coins or they have a fraudulent algorithm that makes you lose on certain conditions.I had to experience this myself and lost a lot on that particular website, which is still actively being promoted and used by people who have no clue that they are being scammed.

I just wanted to take the time to extend u/rrockwe1's interpretation of the game, as it was succinct and similar to where I instinctually landed. Actually, this turned into more of a provocation - I'm looking as to whether this is even the right direction rather than if I've stuck all the details. Sloppy, I know. https://www.reddit.com/NeverBeGameOvecomments/bfzd79/the_ruse_is_the_lack_of_ruse/ Conspiracy is the "heart of the MGS" series, but I would add - as it's flavored by the technological mediums we partake in. The games are not traditional games but loosely connected simulations to discover a conspiracy and the power dynamics of those involved at the top of it. Not unlike our own world. Setup: To start, I would highly recommend everyone on this sub to check out Dan Carlin's SuperNova in the East episode 1. The "incidents" he talks about each play out like a Metal Gear game. We can't forget that Kojima, born in 63, is reacting to events that happened in the immediate generation prior, as we all do. Think Marshall McLuhan's idea of the rear-view mirror while listening. For this interpretation, the relevant takeaway from the podcast is that due to the changes in communication technologies from the industrial revolution, the equilibrium for conflict settled into subterfuge. It was when Japan became sloppy with this new normal (like a winning poker player staying at the table for too long) and accidentally ushered this country towards the most important identity-altering period (WW2) since the Meiji Restoration. For Kojima, I'm imagining/empathizing that if you don't understand this phase shift you don't understand your reality, an American reconstructed post-nuclear Mc-Meiji mess. Now how does this relate to us internetted folk with our new communication mediums? Id love to also introduce this sub to Jordan Greenhall. In the linked post, he goes on to analyze the QAnon phenomenon and is able to abstract some properties that are very reminiscent of what I experienced through NBGO.
Q is the most recent and most important example of a widely distributed self-organizing collective intelligence. We’ve actually seen many precursors. Cicada 3301 is a famous example. Even the I Love Bees ARG for Halo 2. Perhaps Bitcoin is the most important precursor to Q. These “self-organizing collective intelligences” (SOCI), are a new kind of socio-cultural phenomenon that is beginning to emerge in the niche created by the Internet. They involve attractive generator functions dropped into the hive mind that gather attention, use that attention to build more capacity and then grow into something progressively real and self-sustaining. The Q SOCI is, for the most part, about sensemaking. It is combing through the billions of threads of “what might be real” and “what might be true” that have been gathered into the Internet and it is slowly trying to weave them into a consistent, coherent and congruent fabric.
I, like u/rrockwe1, think this ruse was designed. Meta-gaming design is not unheard of in videogames before as another favorite game of mine, FEZ, pulled a similar move in a simpler form. Also a Gamasurtra article on the design style:
"There's a fourth really big influence that I haven't been honest about," Fish continued. "Myst. There's a lot of Myst in Fez, in fact I'd call it a 'Mystroidvania.' It's a huge open nonlinear world, with lots of super obtuse metapuzzles everywhere. The world has its own alphabet and numeric system." "I don't know if that is still going to fly today, that's a school of design that's really very old school. There's a high barrier of entry for that second part to the game, and I hope there will be things that will take internet forums weeks to decipher. I want people to talk about that weird thing that they don't think they were supposed to find in Fez."
To begin: Now we all know Kojima has had mixed feelings towards his own series as he's intended every MGS from 2 onward to be the last in the series (most likely returning due to corporate pressure). This quote from 2014 about MGSV is telling:
"So in a way I guess I'm taking advantage of that to try new things, because every time I work on any game, be it Metal Gear or something else, I try to make new things. So for me, my challenge right now working on Metal Gear is, while preserving the elements that make it Metal Gear, to do all the new things I really want to do."
He's kept things new by innovatively making marketing Metal Gear part of the game experience; bringing an added self-awareness to gaming, fandom, and technology. While the Fez Meta-game was designed to solve newly enabled internet-forum-oriented puzzles, the metal gear Meta-games have been much more difficult to interpret, as they are often part of the artistic statement. However, Kojima has deliberately moved "the game" aspect to encapsulate before, during and now After release*.* Thus as this relates to MGSV, I believe NGBO and similar sensemaking forums will go down as part of "the game" just as much as we can easily state that Metal Gear Marketing before release has been part of each other game in the series. What is MGS2 if you didn't pay attention to the codec briefing marketing of the game. For me though, MGSV is an artistic attempt whose meta-game is an attempt to implode the series's own need for more Canon while simultaneously commenting brilliantly on the reality around him. Imploding Canon - Kojima on Fandom Can the quest for further interpretation fuel and mask different needs (like a need to simulate violence) and can that devolve into self-defeating patterns or as Skullface put it "an endless loop of action and reaction?" Do we play metal gear to gain an understanding of Kojima's critical worldview (anti-war, anti-nuclear, anti-authority themes) or to get gratifying rushes of pixelated violence that glorify what he condemns? These questions are what have plagued the metal gear universe, with the "action and reaction" being fan adulation of a new installment in the series -> leading to corporate pressure -> leading to another unplanned sequel with an intended aesthetic to make us realize the absurdity of the universe he's constructed -> only for our interpretations to fall partially flat on release -> leading to fan adulation... However, this exact dilemma we fans face when playing a metal gear game is nearly identical to those the characters face in MGSV. The need for more canon becomes self-defeating for the likes of Kaz, Venom, and SkullFace trying to enact revenge. Kaz and Venom need the canon to continue so they can manifest new objects for their revenge - which is the intent of the drawn-out nature of the second act. We, as players, seek something as deeply unmet as the characters in MGSV's need for revenge is. This juxtaposition is an attempt at making you self-aware about this - to reflect back the tragically flawed state its characters inhabit on to you and draw the connection to your fandom. This is a game not lacking in canon but is anti-canon. Canon that consumes the need for further canon. The only constructive answer he gives is "to exit", which is embodied via Quiet's character. Quiet, written, displayed, and expressed with purposeful alignment to nearly every stereotypical Videogame trope on women, is a prisoner of the medium she's embedded within. She exits her role within the canon when sexually assaulted by a soldier (a proxy for videogamers at large) or to put it another way, when her role was taken to it's extreme (shock therapy). We need to do the same as Metal Gear fans who are cast within the game as Venom. With his anti-canon deployed, Kojima can now "exit" in peace that the series is put to rest psychically for fans. Instead of clamoring for more. How "to exit" - or how Kojima prepared me for the 21st century MGSV's narrative is bare bones on the surface but speaks volumes to hardcore Metal Gear fans. You, as part of the most knowledgable/obsessive sect of Metal Gear fans, know something is up with this game. Something hasn't sat right in your gut and it continually doesn't sit right. Thus, you naturally sought solace and understanding within a place like NGBO. We came together and exhausted every possible interpretation we could think of as to what this game is. We started doing the homework, building our best ideas and challenged simplistic notions. This collaboration via learning to definitively seek truth as a group is the point of the Ruse Cruise and serves as the antithesis of MGS2's outlook. Now if you are Kojima, what would build this muscle the best within your fans?
Create a conspiracy, reveal its truth, and reward fans for their hardcore vigilance
Fabricate all the necessary parts for the facade of a conspiracy yet deliberately having none to force fans through the emotional ringer of figuring out what is true. A gaslighting job.
For me, I settled on it being the latter which truly pushed me as to what was healthy, valid, and useful to believe in. The meaning and wisdom from this game was transmitted/felt for me once I "exited" and realized the insanity I let myself believe. In this interpretation, we serve as art form to others - showing what happens when a fanbase loses its collective mind and pieces it back together again. Now, why would anyone want to encourage this group behavior? Marshall McLuhan has another nifty quote that points us in the right direction with this:
"World War III is a guerrilla information war with no division between military and civilian participation."
There's this running joke within the ChapoTrapHouse fan community (not a fan, I just observe where metal gear gets talked about) that life is beginning to resemble a Metal Gear game. Biologically genetically altered dystopia, check. Insider leaks of grand governmental conspiracies, check. Zany political characters seizing power, check. Metal Gear Solid V's Ruse cruise was a simulation for a reality that's to come/is here like how MGS2 was a simulation for MGS1. We know we are lied to by authorities and we know the internet is a mess at being an alternative. Thus, Chaos. For Kojima, my guess is that he wanted to kickstart a version of grassroots behavior that will be important in combatting this "truth recession," because telling us via MGS1-4 doesn't seem to work in changing people's behavior, we have to actually crash and burn in doing it. WW3 is here, we got a slice of training. Thanks For the Read :) Also, (my edgiest take is that I think he's embodying his own vision from MGSV. Kojima is Ahab/Venom for Death Stranding's development).
There are a huge group of losers and they buy Forex robots. Bitcoin Revolution 2 Review While the claims these robots make are laughable, the robot buyers think their going to get rich spending a hundred dollars or so and making no effort and of course they lose.Other traders make an effort but still lose, as they believe myths such as you can predict market prices or they move to some higher force and mathematics. They are interested in gimmicks and being clever and the market teaches them a lesson.Another group get a good Forex education and still can't win, as their mindset is not right and its mindset, that really separates winners from the losers. The savvy Forex trader is very often not a geek and has no college education, he's an ordinary Joe in fact, a vast number of rich Forex traders come from a background of playing professional poker. The poker psychology needed to win is very similar to the psychology you need to win at Forex.I know that when you are first start to learn about how to trade the forex market, people tend to really go "indicator crazy". This means they will put any kind of indicator on their charts. It doesn't matter if they don't have a clue about how to use it or even understand what's the purpose of it. I suppose using these indicators provides some kind of reassurance to the trader. I can safely say that when I first started to trade I was suffering from the indicator fever. I used to be the kind of trader that would spend all day on forex forums trying to get my hands on new proprietary indicators.But something eventually dawned on me. While all these indicators looked really pretty on my chart, I didn't have the first clue about how to actually trade the forex market. After all, I was just blindly following these indicators as the sole reason to enter and exit a trade. This is what I like to call the training phase of a trader. It's somewhat akin to when you first learn how to ride a bike. Nobody knows how to ride a bike the first time they get on one, so they put training wheels. In this metaphor, the training wheels are the indicators.But just like when you are riding a bike that is on training wheels, it may seem like you are really riding the bike. But in the back of your mind, you KNOW that you aren't really riding a bike unless you are unassisted. http://whatpeopleswant.com/bitcoin-revolution-2-review/
Having played on Stake for a year now I'd like to share what I think about it. The site is made by the same people who made PrimeDice so the general design is similar but Stake has 12 games including a dice game. All the games are provably fair so you can verify your bets to be sure it's not rigged and the house edge averages 1%. My favorite games are plinko, video poker, and keno. They also have a great community and forum. You can chat with other players and even receive free rains of crypto in chat every few minutes. The site supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Doge. There is not minimum bet so you can choose any amount you want. Withdrawals are instant and I've never had an issue with it. If you do have any issues, they have an awesome support staff available 24/7. If you bet a lot be sure to ask them about rakeback and you can get a percentage of your total wagered amounts. So overall this is my favorite crypto casino because of the games, community and overall trustworthiness. Here's my link if you want to check it out. Stake Crypto Casino
