Like the FAQ about how to choose a wallet, it seems the sidebar is now converted to a Bitcoin.com advertising site.

Looking for the Gemini exchange in the old.reddit sidebar (sidebar menu not showing in the new reddit), Gemini is not listed so I click on "more exchanges" and get this: https://www.bitcoin.com/buy-bitcoin
I love Bitcoin.com, but, BTC should not be controlled by their advertising arm.

What Is Bitcoin And How Does It Work ? Crypto Currency FAQ

What Is Bitcoin And How Does It Work ? Crypto Currency FAQ submitted by prateek1708 to u/prateek1708 [link] [comments]

Sorry if this is a FAQ but I was just wondering something about the two recent more significant bitcoin forks, particularly the total number of coins mined. It's still going to be 21m for BCH and bsv, right?

Bitcoins blockchain starts with the genesis block, and there will be a total of 21 million mined when we are done.
I just wanna be sure I understand. When a hard fork occurs, all previous coins are effectively doubled because there are now two separate chains in the market, right? I remember when the BSV fork happened, what small amount I had in a BCH custodial wallet was suddenly also in a bsv wallet.
So a currency created from a BTC hard fork is still going to yield a total of 21 million coins, right? It's not like somebody could come along after 20m mined coins, create a fork, and there be only 1m total of that particular coin.
I think I have it right, I just need to be sure.

We’re looking to make someone a millionaire. Could it be you? Quarantine may have placed some things at a halt, but we’re still operating as usual, so comment to enter! [Drawing Thread #54]

Depending on who you are, finals are either happening now or you’re done with them. With that being said, we’re still ending our year strong!

Introduction:
Welcome to anyone and everyone coming from /popular. Quarantine has been making this subreddit more popular by the day, so thank you to everyone for supporting this.
For those who aren't familiar:
Also, I want to clarify on the situation with comments: you need to make only one top-level comment. You can reply as many times as you like. However! If you haven’t made a comment DIRECTLY to this post, you will not be counted. I’ve attached a helpful graphic visually clarifying the difference between a top-level comment and a reply right here: https://imgur.com/Si1VLX4
So once again, thank you for your support. The post lasts for 24 hours before getting locked, so make sure you place your comment before 7 PM ET. In addition, I will make a [Part 2] if we reach the limit, and changing some past precedent, I will extend comment collection by a full day. Let's make a millionaire!
In Case You Missed It:
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, /millionairemakersmeta is hosting a seasonal discussion thread for anybody visiting! This is for users who have any questions to the moderators, or for those wanting to commentate on the environment here. Click here to be redirected to the subreddit.

Information

  • REQUIRED: Leave only one (1) top level comment in reply to this thread! (Replying to other comments will not qualify. You must be thirty days old or older to comment.)
  • A random user who commented will be chosen, and everyone donates a dollar to make a millionaire.
  • April 15 at 7:00 PM ET (epoch timestamp: 1586991600) is the cutoff for accounts. If you have created your account after this point, you are not eligible to enter and your submission will be disqualified automatically.
  • May 17 at 12:00 PM ET (epoch timestamp: 1589731200) will begin the process of selecting the winner. At this time, the [Draw] post will be online and start the process of waiting for the blockchain, in order to select the winner randomly and verifiably.

Announcements

Changing how duplicates are handled:
Starting this month, I’ll be changing how duplicates are handled. The TL;DR version is this: make absolute certain that you only left one top-level comment!
Prior to this, I have set the comments to “FirstOnly”, meaning that if you have accidentally made more than one comment, you will be forgiven, and your first comment will count. This will not be the case anymore.
Make sure that you checked your account and haven’t left any more comments than you should. From now on, if you have left more than one top-level comment on this post, your entry will be automatically removed! Other than that, if you do accidentally leave one and forget to remove it, make sure you enter next month!

Conclusion

May 17 at 12 PM ET (16 UTC), we will be picking our winner, and you won’t want to miss it. The post will be labeled [Draw], and one comment will be selected out of the many made here to make a winner!
Remember, this is about generosity, making an impact, and uniting to make someone's life better. It takes three minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you're well off and want to donate a couple bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few coins. Every cent makes cents, and counts!
If a lone $1 can get you an affordable utensil, then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can get a backpack, a farewell worth remembering, and pay for those pesky classes!
A million dollars can make someone’s stay away from school. Spread the word: have your friends and family comment, post the link to your friendly-neighborhood social media network, and share it to anyone interested.

Let’s educate a millionaire!

All rise for this class.
Take a stand, pencil in hand.
How we’ve come so far.

u/maxwellhill’s last post

Anybody think it’s a bit weird that u/maxwellhill ‘s last post is about a “Large Star Disappearing Without a Trace” when the user has seemingly done the same thing from Reddit?
With 14m+ karma and being named Gizmodo’s person of the year, maxwellhill really was a star on this website and we have zero idea where he/she went.
Tin foil hat time, Ghislaine Maxwell knew she was going away for a long time and posted that article as an allegory / goodbye to reddit.

Bit Coin is the opposite of anonymous.

I see a lot of people are having a hard time understanding bit coin.
Naturally, bit coin the the most tracked and easy to tracked system of money.
It was not created to be secretive. It was created to make a system of money that would stand alone from government and not be susceptible to normal problems with money.
It records every transaction, tied to an account, tied to you.
Any time you want to get money in, or get money out, aka turn bit coin into currency, you tell the world who you are. And all your transactions are recorded.
It’s the type of system a government could easily abuse.

You may be in quarantine, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t! For those who don’t know, every month this subreddit makes a millionaire out of one comment, and donates. With danger out and about, take some time and comment to enter! [Drawing Thread #52]

I thought this year would be a lot more normal.

Introduction:
Welcome to anyone and everyone coming from /popular. To be honest, I probably should've expected this, given that most of us are staying home.
For those who aren't familiar: every month, we ask for comments for entry, and we pick one who represents our winner. This process is completely random and verifiable, using the Bitcoin blockchain as a sophisticated die. Following this, people then donate to the winner using a variety of mediums, and the winner would go on to be a "millionaire" (arguably, our definition of that term is pretty loose).
So once again, thank you for your support. The post lasts for 24 hours before getting locked, so make sure you place your comment before 7 PM ET. In addition, I may make a [Part 2] if we reach the limit. If that happens, I will sticky a comment on this post temporarily. Let's make a millionaire!

Mini Survey:
NOTE: A Google account is required to respond to hinder tampering, but you are not obligated to answer.
So I’ve been thinking about this for a while: people are not having pleasant experiences with PayPal. If the account isn’t blocked, then there are issues with fees, fear of the seizure of funds, and the risk of revealing personally identifiable information. However, it is the largest platform used by /MillionaireMakers, and is the provider of most donations on this subreddit.
This survey is purely to see how people feel about this. Unless if the winner chooses to not accept PayPal, we will continue to offer this service for tonight’s thread.
My questions are:
1) How would you feel about a ban on the PayPal service here on /MillionaireMakers?
2) Would removing PayPal as a service affect your ability to donate?
3) Should /MillionaireMakers remove PayPal?
I will periodically post results here. If you are interested in responding, please answer here, answers will not be accepted at the time the [Draw] is posted: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffkP3SKdTi9lLPbtO8taG4_-cdctYlAf8SvohvzoJvTOYdhw/viewform?usp=sf_link

This is as short as they come, leroy627 has made a commit to the repository that adds backwards-compatibility up to Python 3.5. Procedure will be run with the following conditions: the first comment of duplicates are kept for the month of March, and any ineligible comments will be removed.
If you are interested in more information, see [Drawing Thread #51]: https://reddit.com/millionairemakers/comments/f7jdxz/alright_were_getting_back_into_the_flow_happy/

Conclusion

Sunday at 12 PM ET (16 UTC), we will be picking our winner, and you won’t want to miss it. The post will be labeled [Draw], and one comment will be selected out of the many made here to make a winner!
Remember, this is about generosity, making an impact, and uniting to make someone's life better. It takes three minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you're well off and want to donate a couple bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few coins. Every cent makes cents, and counts!
If a lone $1 can get you a mask for obvious reasons, then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can get a full-body suit, new doors, and someone to love you! Admittedly, for the wrong reasons, but the option is there.
A million dollars can make someone’s suffering less sufferable. Spread the word: have your friends and family comment, post the link to your friendly-neighborhood social media network, and share it to anyone interested.

Let’s make a millionaire!

Hang on to that pocket change! Coin shortage in the U. S.

Retailers nationwide are unable to get new coin from the banks, and are left begging customers for change, or worse, demanding exact change for cash purchases. The story is that this is another sad effect from cov19, but I think it's just a convenient way to get everyone on a cashless currency society. What do you think?

Trump ordered the hack

He's had a hate boner for Twitter for the past several months. This damages their credibility as a platform. Trump wasn't affected, which doesn't let him look vulnerable.
Maybe it's just that simple. Election time 4d chess.
Furthermore: a dumbass Bitcoin hack in broken English makes the event look like some sort of South Asian phishing scam that just went way too well. It puts the blame immediately on twitter.
What would Trump want out of the hack? Dunno, maybe the dms and data of half of the leftist activists/journalists active online. Twitter has been historically uncooperative with government on handing over user data, often to their severe expense.
