A Christmas Message from Bottomshelf Bitcoin – Bottomshelf ...

Fun Fact: This is the closest a Millionaire Makers drawing thread will get to Christmas Eve! Comment to enter, and let’s make someone’s Christmas while we still can! [Drawing Thread #37]

OBLIGATORY EDIT: Thanks for the Silv'a, kind and generous stranger. For your generosity, have a video of Silver, from the hit video-game, Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, detailing the glorious benefits silver has on the Reddit culture! Thank you. (I hope you liked the joke.)

Santa Claus is coming! …and apparently it’s a 100,000 people in a red trench coat.

Edit: There are three deleted comments. The drill is to run the code again at 3:00 UTC, with a trial run before and after.
Quick Announcement:
On December 28, 2018, one week after this drawing, I will conduct a survey to help determine this subreddit’s direction. Additionally, the moderation team will unveil a new Discord server at the same time for our subscribers to discuss the subreddit and the drawing. Here are some questions you can expect (updated):
  • What day of the month would you like the /MillionaireMakers drawing to be held?
  • Should the code be further streamlined to acquire comment IDs at a faster and just pace? (Context: There's new code that can be used to prevent further cases of cheating, but it also changes the process.)
  • What is the best cryptocurrency blockchain to choose the winner from?
  • Should the [Drawing Thread] post's format be revamped in the future?
  • Should there be monthly or seasonal announcements the Monday of the [Drawing Thread]'s week?
If you would like to see something specific change over here at /MillionaireMakers, please click here! Your comments will help determine any additional questions the moderation team should ask the subscribers.
TL;DR: Leave a comment on this thread. A random user will be chosen, and everyone donates a dollar to make a millionaire. You are welcome to spread this thread via upvoting, telling friends and family, and sharing on social media! If you'd like to be reminded to donate to the winner by RemindMeBot, click here!
What is this, anyway?
Three years ago, a Redditor posted an idea in /Showerthoughts that speculated the fact, if a million people picked a certain Redditor and all donated just $1, they would have the power to make someone a millionaire.
This subreddit is an embodiment of that showerthought, and the monthly drawings are the attempts to make it happen.
We need your help to keep this running, which amounts to only $1 a month to make someone's day. In the long term, that’s $120 every decade, which is a much more affordable price than other expenses. How does it work? Below, you will find an explanation on entering, rules to keep in mind, the selection, and other important things to note.
How to enter:
  • REQUIRED: Leave only one (1) top level comment in reply to this thread! Replying to other comments will not count. It is highly recommended to comment "RemindMe! 3 days Donation for /millionairemakers", which will remind you via PM to donate.
Important Rules:
  • Only ONE top level comment per person (replies and subsequent-level comments aren't included), but feel free to reply to other comments. Making duplicate top level comments may result in exclusion from entering. Go to me to ensure you don't accidentally double comment.
  • If, by any chance, you do double comment, delete any extra duplicates ASAP, ideally before the thread is locked in 24 hours, as any chosen draws found to violate this will not be eligible to win, and will be banned from the subreddit.
  • Your account must be older than 30 days with some amount of activity. Throwaway accounts with very minimal activity will also not be eligible. This is to prevent multiple entries from the same person.
How will the winner be picked and how can you donate?
  • After 24 hours, this thread will close, and the method of selection will begin.
  • While attempts to make the selection method similar to 2017’s have been performed, it still varies from the original. For an example from a prior drawing, see [Draw #36]. For archival purposes, please click here for the original selection method.
  • Method's TL;DR: Your number is assigned by sorting the comments by old, so the first commenter will be 1, and the list of comments will be publicly released. The subreddit then waits for a randomly generated block (a string of numbers) from Bitcoin's blockchain, after a preselected date and time, and calculates the winner using a formula described in the posts mentioned above.
  • Comment IDs are downloaded at 2:00 UTC, three hours following the thread being locked. There will be a trial run prior to the time listed, one at the time listed, and one trial run thirty minutes after. If it is shown that the deletion of comments has occurred between any of the trial runs, or technical difficulties, the retrieval of the comments will be delayed by an hour, following the same procedures. For [Drawing Thread #37], this has occurred, and retrieval of comments will be delayed to 3:00 UTC.
  • While not necessary, to determine if you are on the list, please go to your comment and save it. The comment ID is what gets recorded and selected, which looks like this: e3yxpj4.
  • The user who created the winning comment will be informed of their luck and will provide any information necessary for their chosen payment methods (mods will help set this up if needed).
  • The generous Reddit community donates to this lucky person, hopefully making some worthy soul a millionaire! A donation table will be stickied to the winner’s post, giving users the freedom in how they donate.
  • The lucky Redditor follows up with a thank you within the next days, revealing to the community exactly how much was raised and thanking their generosity.
Reminders
  • Take the time you have available now to setup your PayPal, Square Cash, and Google Wallet account, and/or cryptocurrency wallets. (Note: Some services may not be available depending on where you reside.)
  • To buy any cryptocurrencies, you may use Coinbase for purchases using your bank account.
  • To store cryptocurrencies, there are many accessible wallets, and if you win, you will be guided on which ones to download. For Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, it’s recommended to use the Electrum and Electron Cash wallet for Mac, Linux, and PC.
  • Please try your best to donate a $1, no matter who wins. Every single dollar, cent, anything really counts, so please take the effort to remember and go through with it.
  • If you want to be reminded to donate, please comment "RemindMe! 3 days Donation for /millionairemakers".
  • Spread the word! The more people who participate, the better this gets for everyone! There has been a correlation between this subreddit making it in /all and an increase in donations.
  • Try to cross-post to relevant subs, and upvote. There is a correlation between reaching /all and the amount of donations for the winner. (Please don't spam other subs though. We're not trying to make any enemies here.)
  • If you are under 18, please talk to your parents to get their consent to participate and use their help to setup a PayPal account.
MOST IMPORTANTLY
Remember, this is about generosity, making history, and coming together 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 pennies. Every cent counts.
Note about legality: This is NOT a lottery. You don't have to pay to enter. No prizes are given away directly by the moderators of this subreddit (the moderators will never even touch your donations; this is done voluntarily). As for gift taxes, according to the IRS they're generally paid by the donor, and any donations under $14,000 is not taxable.
If a lone $1 can get you a Dollar Tree-worthy present, imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can go invite your family to a Disney World vacation, invite friends without hesitation, or put up Christmas decorations!
One million dollars can be enough to make someone’s Christmas. 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 GIVE THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING!
A Christmas delight,
With people dear, near, and cheer.
The winner’s tonight!

Winter is coming, get ready to overthrow the establishment! (I mean, make a millionaire.) [Drawing Thread #38]

It's cold. (I've never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, please enjoy the reference if it makes sense! If it doesn't, it's treason, then. And if I made anyone cringe, I'm sorry. )

If a lone $1 can get you ice cream (I did eat a Frosty this week), imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can start a loan for a new vehicle, raise money for a TV, or pay gas bills to stay warm!
One million dollars can keep someone from the pain of the frost and cold. 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 heat a millionaire!
The cold of the night,
Whether sweaters or letters,
Today, set things right!

Cryptocurrency Picks December 18th: EMC2, BAT, LTC, PAY, WAVES, NXT, XLM MCO

The Top Cryptocurrencies to Own in December with Dates (Price Predictions with Facts)
Sifting through 1000’s of cryptocurrencies to find ones that will perform in the short term is not an easy task. It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack surrounded by millions of dollars being thrown around into sh*tcoins and scamcoins. Outpacing Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin when they’ve had 100+% returns in the last month alone seems farfetched. However, it is a lot easier than most would have you believe. I’m going to post below my picks for December 18th (today) through December 29th. What you can expect from the specific currencies, and dates to sell, or hold strategies. PICKS: EMC2, BAT, LTC, PAY, WAVES, NXT, XLM MCO
EMC2: December 18th, EMC2(Einsteinium) has promised “Mind Blowing” news to be released on the 19th. That is tomorrow! I expect EMC2 to rally very hard throughout the day to end at a price point between $3 and $3.50 before the news tomorrow. Depending on when the news is released tomorrow I believe it will get as high as $4.00. Currently it is trading at $2.40 so this is an easy 20% return if you buy and hold for 12-24hours. If indeed the news is “mind blowing” as EMC2 has stated specifically, this will rally into the $5.00-$7.00 range. If the news is mediocre expect a nice drop to occur. I would recommend tailoring your strategy to your risk. Hold through tomorrow for the possibility of a 100% gain in 24hours based on the level of mindblowingess, or sell tomorrow morning/late tonight for a 20-30% gain. EMC2 just went through a hard fork and reduced their total circulation by 25%. This coupled with MIND BLOWING news tomorrow should result in a significant upward trend. The rumors if you scower the message boards rumors swirling have been everything from Apple getting involved to a major partnership with NASA or MIT. I’m puzzled to what this mind blowing news could be but I am confident it will substantially increase the price of EMC2 for the next 24-36hours (and longer if it is truly mind blowing!).
Litecoin: December 19th, LTC what has preceded prior Litecoin price rallies in previous weeks? The holidays (Thanksgiving) when everyone is home discussing crypto, and when anyone related to Litecoin has a public interview or Q&A session the price rallies exceptionally hard during the livestream/interview or directly following when the public begins to see it. With Litecoin still the cheapest option on Coinbase, and Americans being exceptionally lazy I foresee more money to continue to be poured into Litecoin through the Holiday season, and expect a significant rally on the 19th. The director of the LTC Foundation will be having a discussion about the price of LTC on the 19th. Expect a significant rally for the next 48 hours in LTC and through December. Recommendation sell tomorrow evening, or hold through the holiday season.
XLM: Dec 19th: XLM is holding meetups once a week in crypto investment hubs across Asia for the next month. I would recommend buying immediately and selling the day of the meetup, or more safely, buying immediately and holding through the last meet up in mid-January. The dates and locations of the specific meetups are: Honk Kong Dec 19th, Bangkok Dec 25th, Singapore Jan 8th. The recommendation is to buy and hold until Jan 8th at the earliest.
Basic Attention Token: December 20th, BAT has been a significant mover over the past week which spiked my interest for a number of reasons. Without getting into the technicals of the BAT coin I am offering it as a short term Buy because on the 20th there will be an open Q&A with Brendain Eich the CEO of Brave (the reason BAT exists). This will create a lot of news/publicity surrounding the token bringing in new investors. I expect a 20% increase in price for BAT from December 18th-December 20th following the Q&A.
NXT, December 28th, NXT has an airdrop occurring on the 28th. They are giving a 1:2 ratio for every NXT held in your NXT wallet. If you have 1000 NXT in your wallet you will be provided with 500 IGNIS coins which will be traded as of January 1st. The future value of the IGNIS is already between $2-$3 meaning a purchase of NXT today would yield a minimum of a 40% return in NEW coins via airdrop on the 28th. I would recommend one of 2 strategies. Buying a large stake immediately and holding until the 27th. On the 27th there should be very few available NXT coins on exchanges as most will have transferred them into their wallet leading up to the airdrop and everyone trying to get involved last minute with minimal supply left will create a price jump. Either sell at this price jump or hold for the airdrop as the airdrop ensures approximately a 50% return at current prices.
WAVES, December 29th, WAVES has similar logic to NXT but has yet to experience the price jump in coin price. Their airdrop is occurring on the 29th so a very similar logic applied to buying, holding, and determining if you want to sell on the 28th when demand is highest and supply is limited as most should be transferred off exchanges. WAVES is also undergoing an NG activation on the 22nd which should add value leading up to the airdrop. This is a perfect entry point for a wild week in the WAVES leading up to the NG activation and airdrop.
MCO and PAY December 25th (approx.) have stated they will have surprises, MCO specifically states 3 announcements, an exchange listing, a partnership and ?, while PAY says they may have a very special Christmas announcement. I expect a 20-30% return leading up to the announcements and another price jump if the news has a positive reaction, if you are a gambler, hold through the news, if you want to take profits, sell on December 24th.
THESE ARE SOLELY STRATEGIES YOU CAN USE IN THE CRYPTOCURRENCY MARKETS BY NO MEANS AM I TRYING TO PROVIDE INVESTMENT ADVICE. I DO OWN SOME OF THE LISTED CURRENCIES FOR THE REASONS I’VE STATED.

Merry Christmas! Coinbase finally verified my account and I found old bitcoin. I don't know where to store them.

Merry Christmas everyone. This morning I received a texted saying that my account verification had finally finished. It was a case of no longer having access to the phone used for the two-step verification for logging into my account.
To my pleasant surprise I found .002 of bitcoin sitting in my account along with an identical amount of bitcoin cash apparently since the bitcoins were so old I think. Unfortunately I'm now prompted with a message that says I have to close my account and I have to input wallet addresses to transfer these digital currencies. I've opened up a wallet using the iOS Co-Pay app for the iphone app and generated a wallet and stored my long pass phrase in a safe place just in case.
Anyways I'm waiting for confirmation now because I transferred my bitcoin out of coinbase however the amount hasn't shown up in my Co-Pay wallet yet and for some reason Coinbase won't accept the bitcoin cash wallet generated by the Co-Pay app. I'm just gonna wait and see what happens because until recently I hadn't been able to access my coinbase account because of an error on their website. I'm just a little bummed that they're forcing me to close my account and a little concerned that the transaction hasn't gone through yet even though it's only been an hour or so, anyways- merry Christmas everyone.

Satoshi is Black! How hip-hop culture has taken a fancy to Bitcoin

Astute Jay-Z, forgetful 50 Cent, a former drug dealer advising a cannabis ICO and other hilarious, but logical stories about the relationship between rappers and cryptocurrency.
A young youth, yo rockin the gold tooth, ‘Lo goose Only way, I begin to gee off was drug loot And let’s start it like this son, rollin with this one And that one, pullin out gats for fun But it just a dream for the teen, who was a fiend Started smokin’ woolies at sixteen
Life is hard when you’re 16 with gold teeth and not enough money for decent clothes. Especially in a black neighbourhood where 80% live on unemployment benefits and half deal drugs. When you’re going mad because there’s nothing to do and the girls don’t want you because you’re a deadbeat who doesn’t have a gun.
Cash, Rules, Everything, Around, Me C.R.E.A.M. Get the money Dollar, dollar bill y’all
To try to solve this problem in the past, a black guy would find a gun, rob a grocery store and be put in jail. Or imagine all that to write some verses. After all, hip-hop is the music of self-made men and the oppressed. If Fitzgerald wrote Great Gatsby in the 90s, it would definitely have been accompanied by a dope beat.
But today black guys are moving to the rhythm of Bitcoin. Oh yeah, baby!
Figured out I went the wrong route So I got with a sick ass click and went all out Catchin keys from across seas Rollin in MPVs, every week we made forty Gs Yo nigga respect mine, or anger the tech nine Ch-chick-POW! Move from the gate now
Sometimes it seems that not only Jesus and the US president were black, but Satoshi Nakamoto too. Only a 16-year-old with gold teeth could think up something so hyped that it can lift any sensible guy out of the ghetto and to the moon. No one has to rob grocery stores to have cash, chicks and sweet rides anymore.
We’re only kidding, just in case you were wondering 🙂
Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah decided to help his brothers get access to digital gold and has started to install cryptocurrency vending machines alongside his partners. They are also knocking up an online platform that will make it quick and easy to buy cryptocurrency for fiat money. During the ICO, Cream (that’s right, in honour of the track) Capital plans to raise 30 million dollars. The CNT token will give its hodlers all sorts of bonuses when using their services. There’s no more info at the moment, but the message is clear: Crypto, Rules, Everything, Around, Me!
I’m the one-man army, Ason I’ve never been tooken out, I keep MCs looking out I drop science like girls be droppin babies Enough to make a nigga go cra-a-azy
Ol’ Dirty Bastard has been dead for 14 years, but a cryptocurrency is being launched in his honour. The musician’s son has decided to release Dirty Coin (ODB). Everyone who buys this token on the TAO blockchain will be a sponsor for Bastard Jr.’s new album and have the opportunity in the future to get their hands on all sorts of goodies for fans (concert tickets, autograph sessions and merchandise) for mere pennies. There you go, a young black guy and he’s already making his own cryptocurrency. Good man. They just need to do something with the name – at the moment, Dirty Coin sounds like an obvious ICO scam promising to revolutionise the world of escort services.
I told him, “Please, don’t die over the neighborhood That your momma rentin’, Take your drug money and buy the neighborhood, That’s how you rinse it.”
The most successful black businessman and rapper Jay-Z has been on the crypto scene for ages. He sold concert tickets for BTC before it was mainstream. And why the fuck not? He’s got so much “money to burn” that he can afford to experiment once in a while. If it didn’t work out, no one would have known. And now, riding the wave of success, he can blow his own trumpet. Recently, Shawn Corey Carter invested in popular investment app Robinhood, which Snoop Dogg and Nas had already put their faith in. Rumour has it, incidentally, that the latter has links to Coinbase: it’s said that he gave them some money way back in 2014 and is already skimming off the cream. Basically, these guys know how to avoid scam ICOs and shitcoins.
And I’m grindin’ til I’m attacked They say “You ain’t grindin’ til you tired” So I’m grindin’ with my eyes wide Looking to find, a way through the day
Is it possible to have a rapper without weed? It’s doubtful such a specimen even exists. So there’s no surprise that The Game is listed as an adviser to the Paragon ICO. The startup plans on using blockchain to combat the black market for cannabis in the states where smoking it is legal. Like, everyone will be able to see where all these sativas and indicas are made, who is selling them and who is buying them. In addition, the team plans to grow some crops themselves and set up a coworking space for rastamen. They’ve come to the right place – The Game will certainly be able to give some good advice. Back in the day, the rapper was kicked out of university for drugs, but he didn’t let it get him down and started to earn a living from dealing. So it’s just one of those times when all the stars align.
I was a poor nigga Now I’m a rich nigga Getting paper now you can’t tell me shit nigga You can find me in the fo’ dot six nigga In the backseat fondling ya bitch nigga
Anyway, the sickest story so far involves 50 Cent. In 2014, he released his last album (so far) Animal Ambition. And sold it for Bitcoin! Back then, those sales were worth $400k at an exchange rate of $662, so he ended up with 604 BTC in his wallet. And only remembered about them this winter. This is a tale so fantastic that even Dickens and his Christmas Carol could only dream about it.
But only if it’s true, because Curtis Jackson is quite the wheeler-dealer and trickster. Firstly, he declared a fraudulent bankruptcy to avoid paying compensation as a result of the lawsuits and secondly, he’s stuck in a creative rut and wants to stay in the limelight.
To sum up, rap and crypto are made for each other. Loads of hype, cash and Lambos. But we prefer the development of blockchain itself to all the fuss surrounding it. On the other hand, it’s definitely a positive thing that cryptocurrencies have become a serious part of the mainstream. Indeed, alongside the comical cases, it will find a lot of useful and cool applications.
That’s why we have an idea for a startup… We launch RAP Coin and raise $50m from an ICO. We immediately blow 10 million bucks on a fucked up party with Lambos, golden Escalades, coke, weed, hookers, whisky and the best sound system in town. Oh wait! That’s already happened 🙂
The rest of the money will go towards creating a foundation that will take promising rappers from the mean streets, dress them in decent gear, introduce them to hot chicks and producers, and give them rubber guns, gold chains and new Jordans. Of course, only through blockchain. They will subsequently grow into new stars and – if they don’t snuff it from an overdose, get sent to jail or go bankrupt – will certainly reward investors with 20% of their income for 5 years.
So, friends, forget about all the shitty ICOs you’ve just heard about. The future belongs to RAP Coin. Feel the flow!
If you really want to help reveal scams and have blockchain move in the right direction, send us info and share your leaks and findings. We’ll post everything and smash the scammers into moon dust.
In blockchain we trust!

Lost .25 Bitcoin (sent to wrong address), looking for advice on recovery.

On Saturday, December 10, 2016 I sent 0.645 bitcoin from my BTCJam account to invest in the Darcrus ICO, bitcoin address 12pg2X5NjvNJREuFm6yPigijnUWVzGwLhQ (TRANSACTION ID c043573fb67d6955b40f3b6f6d0714ae37267f7026a9d597ed97a08444dc4245). The ICO failed to fund an I was told to submit a refund address. I submitted my Coinbase address and received a full refund of 0.64 bitcoin on Dec. 13.
On Dec. 24 I attempted to send ฿ 0.25 from my BTCJam account as a Christmas gift, but I only entered the amount, and clicked the "withdraw" button expecting BTCJam to prompt for the address to send to, but there was no prompt for an address, BTCJam simply sent the ฿ 0.2495 to the last address I had sent money to, 12pg2X5NjvNJREuFm6yPigijnUWVzGwLhQ (TRANSACTION ID 55ad3f28ef8ff16ea5846845f1bbe052f75e2e3a30f86df9f42f92408d60b5f4) the deposit address for the Darcrus ICO.
I don't know much about the Darcrus project but did send a message to them as well as to Bittrex because Bittrex seemed to be involved in the Darcrus ICO. I have not yet received a response from Darcrus but I did get a response from someone at Bittrex saying that my email was not a valid account and "...We would only be able to recover these coins if they were sent to an address that belongs to your account and even then it is not always compatible/secure to do so. Thank you, Ryan"
Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I should do to try to get my bitcoin back?

Cryptocurrency Picks for December with Dates and Facts, PICKS: EMC2, BAT, LTC, PAY, WAVES, NXT, XLM MCO

The Top Cryptocurrencies to Own in December with Dates (Price Predictions with Facts)
Sifting through 1000’s of cryptocurrencies to find ones that will perform in the short term is not an easy task. It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack surrounded by millions of dollars being thrown around into sh*tcoins and scamcoins. Outpacing Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin when they’ve had 100+% returns in the last month alone seems farfetched. However, it is a lot easier than most would have you believe. I’m going to post below my picks for December 18th (today) through December 29th. What you can expect from the specific currencies, and dates to sell, or hold strategies. PICKS: EMC2, BAT, LTC, PAY, WAVES, NXT, XLM MCO
EMC2: December 18th, EMC2(Einsteinium) has promised “Mind Blowing” news to be released on the 19th. That is tomorrow! I expect EMC2 to rally very hard throughout the day to end at a price point between $3 and $3.50 before the news tomorrow. Depending on when the news is released tomorrow I believe it will get as high as $4.00. Currently it is trading at $2.40 so this is an easy 20% return if you buy and hold for 12-24hours. If indeed the news is “mind blowing” as EMC2 has stated specifically, this will rally into the $5.00-$7.00 range. If the news is mediocre expect a nice drop to occur. I would recommend tailoring your strategy to your risk. Hold through tomorrow for the possibility of a 100% gain in 24hours based on the level of mindblowingess, or sell tomorrow morning/late tonight for a 20-30% gain. EMC2 just went through a hard fork and reduced their total circulation by 25%. This coupled with MIND BLOWING news tomorrow should result in a significant upward trend. The rumors if you scower the message boards rumors swirling have been everything from Apple getting involved to a major partnership with NASA or MIT. I’m puzzled to what this mind blowing news could be but I am confident it will substantially increase the price of EMC2 for the next 24-36hours (and longer if it is truly mind blowing!).
Litecoin: December 19th, LTC what has preceded prior Litecoin price rallies in previous weeks? The holidays (Thanksgiving) when everyone is home discussing crypto, and when anyone related to Litecoin has a public interview or Q&A session the price rallies exceptionally hard during the livestream/interview or directly following when the public begins to see it. With Litecoin still the cheapest option on Coinbase, and Americans being exceptionally lazy I foresee more money to continue to be poured into Litecoin through the Holiday season, and expect a significant rally on the 19th. The director of the LTC Foundation will be having a discussion about the price of LTC on the 19th. Expect a significant rally for the next 48 hours in LTC and through December. Recommendation sell tomorrow evening, or hold through the holiday season.
XLM: Dec 19th: XLM is holding meetups once a week in crypto investment hubs across Asia for the next month. I would recommend buying immediately and selling the day of the meetup, or more safely, buying immediately and holding through the last meet up in mid-January. The dates and locations of the specific meetups are: Honk Kong Dec 19th, Bangkok Dec 25th, Singapore Jan 8th. The recommendation is to buy and hold until Jan 8th at the earliest.
Basic Attention Token: December 20th, BAT has been a significant mover over the past week which spiked my interest for a number of reasons. Without getting into the technicals of the BAT coin I am offering it as a short term Buy because on the 20th there will be an open Q&A with Brendain Eich the CEO of Brave (the reason BAT exists). This will create a lot of news/publicity surrounding the token bringing in new investors. I expect a 20% increase in price for BAT from December 18th-December 20th following the Q&A.
NXT, December 28th, NXT has an airdrop occurring on the 28th. They are giving a 1:2 ratio for every NXT held in your NXT wallet. If you have 1000 NXT in your wallet you will be provided with 500 IGNIS coins which will be traded as of January 1st. The future value of the IGNIS is already between $2-$3 meaning a purchase of NXT today would yield a minimum of a 40% return in NEW coins via airdrop on the 28th. I would recommend one of 2 strategies. Buying a large stake immediately and holding until the 27th. On the 27th there should be very few available NXT coins on exchanges as most will have transferred them into their wallet leading up to the airdrop and everyone trying to get involved last minute with minimal supply left will create a price jump. Either sell at this price jump or hold for the airdrop as the airdrop ensures approximately a 50% return at current prices.
WAVES, December 29th, WAVES has similar logic to NXT but has yet to experience the price jump in coin price. Their airdrop is occurring on the 29th so a very similar logic applied to buying, holding, and determining if you want to sell on the 28th when demand is highest and supply is limited as most should be transferred off exchanges. WAVES is also undergoing an NG activation on the 22nd which should add value leading up to the airdrop. This is a perfect entry point for a wild week in the WAVES leading up to the NG activation and airdrop.
MCO and PAY December 25th (approx.) have stated they will have surprises, MCO specifically states 3 announcements, an exchange listing, a partnership and ?, while PAY says they may have a very special Christmas announcement. I expect a 20-30% return leading up to the announcements and another price jump if the news has a positive reaction, if you are a gambler, hold through the news, if you want to take profits, sell on December 24th.
THESE ARE SOLELY STRATEGIES YOU CAN USE IN THE CRYPTOCURRENCY MARKETS BY NO MEANS AM I TRYING TO PROVIDE INVESTMENT ADVICE. I DO OWN SOME OF THE LISTED CURRENCIES FOR THE REASONS I’VE STATED.

I'm launching a cryptocurrency egifting platform for this holiday. Would love some feedback.

Hi everyone,
I've been a fan of cryptocurrencies for a few years and have decided to sell some of my cryptocurrencies to help build a service that enables people to provide a cryptocurrency as an egift to their friends and family.
The idea came to me when I decided to buy cryptocurrencies for my friends and family this holiday as a gift and wasn't able to find an easy to use service. I'm hoping I can help many of you give a great gift to your loved ones this Christmas.
While sites such as Coinbase offer option to email cryptocurrencies, they don't have a good gifting experience. My goal is to build a great gifting experience that can achieve a few key goals:
We are currently have a 'coming soon' page. The website is www.zentogift.com. The launch date target is Dec 20.
I'd like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the usability of a crypto gifting service.

A holiday message from Charlie Shrem, Vice Chairman of Bitcoin Foundation and Bitcoin Evangelist

Seasons Greetings Bitcoiners!
What a wild year 2013 has been!
At the time of last year’s holiday message, BTC was $13.30 and on Jan 10th, 2013 I was predicting $14.00. As of Christmas morning, BTC is holding steady around $675.
Now, before all of you say “Bitcoin is not all about the price”, relax. You are correct. This year I’ve been fortunate to have travelled all over the world evangelizing Bitcoin. From Austria to Las Vegas, Panama, California, London, Amsterdam, Morocco, Argentina and more meeting Bitcoin communities and building lifelong friendships. One thing I’ll always remember, said to me by long time friend and Bitcoin Foundation general counsel Patrick Murk, “Bitcoin is the accumulation of the talent, hard work and dedication of the people who develop and maintain the protocol, build industries around the protocol, the merchants and consumers who use the Bitcoin protocol in their daily lives, and those who promote and protect the protocol. As more people become a part of the Bitcoin community, the value of the system increases.”.
Bitcoin is not simply a currency, or a payment system. Bitcoin is a technology that enables you and I to work together to make the world a better place. Bitcoin not only has the potential for global financial inclusion of the world’s poor, it also provides a stable money supply to people living in some of the world’s most corrupt and irresponsible governments.
We’ve had many ups and downs this year, literally. We saw the end of Silk Road and the dawn of government regulation. Some people thought we even found Satoshi. China emerged as a dominant player in the Bitcoin space. Senate hearings and various worldwide government bodies either embraced or tried to slow it down. I say good luck to that. To shut down Bitcoin you’d have to shut down the world’s electricity and the internet. Lastly, Canada and Australia joined the foundation’s initiative to bring together some of the most energetic Bitcoin communities in the world to fulfill our mission to protect, standardize and promote Bitcoin worldwide. Bitcoin is you, me, and all of our hard work. It’s our community and culture that we’ve all decided to make our own – and we will prevail.
Satoshi built Bitcoin for us so we that can carry the torch and continue to develop it for mainstream adoption. He gave us the land and now its up to us the build the roads, bridges, and tunnels. 2013 was the year of regulation. 2014 is the year of infrastructure so get ready to build! Circle’s $9 million and Coinbase’s $25 million investments are just the tip of the iceberg. An iceberg full of new ideas, talent and capital just waiting to be tapped by the right people to bring Bitcoin to the masses.
Looking forward to an even wilder year!
Happy holidays!
Charlie Shrem
Vice-Chairman, Bitcoin Foundation

Merry Christmas and found old bitcoin!

Merry Christmas everyone. This morning I received a texted saying that my account verification had finally finished. It was a case of no longer having access to the phone used for the two-step verification for logging into my account.
To my pleasant surprise I found .002 of bitcoin sitting in my account along with an identical amount of bitcoin cash apparently since the bitcoins were so old I think. Unfortunately I'm now prompted with a message that says I have to close my account and I have to input wallet addresses to transfer these digital currencies. I've opened up a wallet using the iOS Co-Pay app for the iphone app and generated a wallet and stored my long pass phrase in a safe place just in case.
Anyways I'm waiting for confirmation now because I transferred my bitcoin out of coinbase however the amount hasn't shown up in my Co-Pay wallet yet and for some reason Coinbase won't accept the bitcoin cash wallet generated by the Co-Pay app. I'm just gonna wait and see what happens because until recently I hadn't been able to access my coinbase account because of an error on their website. I'm just a little bummed that they're forcing me to close my account and a little concerned that the transaction hasn't gone through yet even though it's only been an hour or so, anyways- merry Christmas everyone.

Can you help me write a "New to bitcoin?" blurb for inclusion in free business piece?

I'm working with some business authors who are putting out a really cool Christmas story as a marketing piece. Their primary target audience is mid-tier executives and above. The story is a re-write of A Christmas Carol to promote the idea that companies should quit being d*cks.
The book (@ 40 pages) will be entirely free under creative commons because they'd like it to go viral w/a coupon offer for their new book coming out in Feb.
I convinced them to include a bitcoin tip in the book (since it's free) and got them to mention "new currencies like Bitcoin" in the text.
Now, I want to get them to include a how to use bitcoins at the end. I'm limited to about 300-400 words. This is what I have so far? Can you give me feedback or if there are better options or links I can include?
---[begin]---
[QR Code] If you've enjoyed this work and would like to tip the authors, bitcoin tips can be sent to 1N9FBuWfE65eN7FeULsgKGyn65497rJH2R or the QR code to the left.
[QR Code] New to bitcoin? You can learn more about bitcoins at https://bitcoin.org/en/getting-started or the QR code to the left.
[QR Code] We use Coinbase for our bitcoin purchases because they're an established San Francisco company that's fully registered and compliant with the SEC. They provide the back end bitcoin processing for known companies such as PayPal, Overstock.com, and NewEgg. You can learn more about them at https://www.coinbase.com/about or the QR code to the left. They also provide both Android and iOS bitcoin wallet apps.
[QR Code]We use the Mycelium Android wallet from https://mycelium.com/bitcoinwallet.
---[End]---
Any creative types out there who can help me make this smoother more interesting?
The readers are probably going to be people who have only heard of bitcoin from a "Oh... the feds are busting all the online drug dealers" perspective or never heard of them at all. I'm trying to provide information so they don't think it's only drug dealers that use bitcoin.
The idea of bitcoin fits so well with their message. A big one is to take individual responsibility and individual control of your life. But they are... hmm... not younger and not technophobes (yet they all carry two or more smart phones). And, that's probably going to be the majority of the readers of this book.
I've drug them this far and would really like to put something at the back of the book that piques people's interest.
I need to come up with something by Thanks Giving if I'm going to get it in there.
Any help or feedback would really be appreciated.

FINALLY - verified for full instant buy privileges on Coinbase

So I've been trying ever since I got my Coinbase account, around 2+ months ago, to get totally verified for instant purchases.
I had completed all the steps up through the ID verification. Every time I took the test I knew all the answers were right and somehow it still denied me. And none of my info was new, my living status has been the same/current for several years. I sent an email to Coinbase inquiring if there was anything that could be done (knowing that there wasn't, but I tried anyway) and to no avail of course.
So on my trek to hopefully be verified by chance, it happened today. I do the test like normal, expecting to fail, and then the wonderful message comes up "Congrats!" and I'm filled with happiness! I have 10 BTC worth of instant buy and my normal buy limit raised to 50 BTC. Not that I would ever saturate those limits, but it's SO nice to have instant buy as I could've used that several times. Over the week of Christmas it took more than 10 days for an order to complete and for my bitcoin to show up.
So, the reason for this post is to pronounce my happiness and to tell everyone that may still be trying for ID verification from them: KEEP TRYING!
I don't know how, but somehow it paid off. Any insight into how Coinbase goes about accepting their verification test would be appreciated. It would help to understand why I was being denied all those times.
Good day to you bitcoin.
