    Stake Is Lucky

    Would it be okay in PM? Seems like an odd rule as that was going to be my suggestion to Badger to simply have them contact her via another method. I expected that Stake monitored our PMs, I didn't expect them to mute people for what was sent if the recipient was okay with it. Oh well, their site, their rules. Thanks @badger!

    Visa crypto prepaid cards

    I am a big Bitpay prepaid card fan, but one without any ATM fees would be even better! I've seen a couple of these promise a lot and then never actually happen, so we'll see! Thanks @bmg!
  3. Thanks for responding. This is a great example of why hear say is not admissible in courts of law, you need to hear directly from both sides before making any conclusion. This is also a great example of why Stake wanted to take itself out of the marketplace. I don't think paypal will allow you to not allow chargebacks, so if you are going to continue with your service, I'd remove that as an option.

    Challenge Entry and Ghost Mode Issue?

    No, it's NOT okay. As @Bojana made clear: Good Luck!

    Have you tried real blackjack?

    Real blackjack is too much work, seriously. If I don't play according to "basic strategy" I'll have some drunk complaining that I took or didn't take his cards. While I am a little bummed that it's not a real deck that stake uses, rather an infinite deck, it's still more fun to play here than real life.
  6. It works if the contextual menu opens "up" rather than down. No idea why, it is a known issue.
  7. Since Stake now takes Bitcoincash I thought this was a very interesting summary of the current fork. I'm surprised that Stake has not made an announcements or any changes due to the fork. Since I always thought of him as a posing blow hard, I figured Craig Wright's SV fork would be quickly forgotten, but apparently it had the most hash power for awhile. Wowza. The good news if you are a ABC fan is that the ABC chain is now longer and apparently it has closed the hash power gap due to bitcoin.com redirecting mining power to ABC, really interesting. Exchange Poloniex is tracking both coins and ABC is worth more than SV but should be really interesting to keep watching. I'm sitting tight for now with my tiny amount of bitcoin cash, would love to hear how you are playing it. Link to full story: https://www.coindesk.com/what-we-know-about-bitcoin-cashs-two-blockchains
  8. Woah there amigo, no way crypto is at an all time low, remember Bitcoin has been less than 1 USD! Now low for the year, sure. The main benefit of the market dropping is you can feel much less bad about your losses over the last year in terms of your local currency.

    Do you feel Guilt When you Bust?

    You either know what you are doing or you don't. I know what I am doing when I am gambling, either on Stake or in real life. So I never feel guilt when I lose. I may feel stupid or angry with myself, but by knowing to stop when I am no longer having fun helps keep that from happening.

    Have you tried playing real gambling?

    Of course, but Stake is so much better. First you can bet very small amounts of money, even less than .01 USD. Second, you can easily stop at any time, just go do something else. You don't have to wait for your friends or a ride. On the downside no free comps and sometimes it is fun to gamble together with friends.
  11. At first I thought this was BCH and was ready to blame Craig Wright but that really doesn't explain so many coins being down so hard. I expect we are at the point that year over year prices are now clearly below where they were last year so makes sense to sell for many investors. The Fear Of Missing Out that was so strong last year has morphed into the Fear Of Losing Everything. As to what you should do davin there is no way to know. If you have losses on your investment it may make sense to sell them so you can write them off on your taxes if you live in a country with an income tax, otherwise you can hold and hope for a rebound, though so far this year it has been a pretty straight line drop.

    Is this the end?

    Is it the end for Bitcoin, of course not, though it does obviously suck if you are hoping for a stable or increasing price. I do hope it's the end for major league ass and Satoshi poser Craig Wright who I blame for this whole mess due to the Bitcoin Cash fork.

It was weird to actually be rooting FOR the Full House! I have now played more diamond poker than I ever want to! 🐵
  14. I am a big fan of privacy, that is why I got into Bitcoin to start with, but Dan is right, we are getting paid promotional satoshi to post here, frankly I'm amazed at how generous it is for some of the posts I see here, and so as promotional coins, Stake has every right to publicize their distribution as widely and loudly as possible. I have two suggestions, first now that the withdrawal limit is so low, only 2K satoshi, simply withdraw your forum satoshi more often. No one in chat is going to get too excited about a 2K to 5K tip from forum. Second is you can strategically time your withdrawal for when chat is active. My personal favorite is when someone has done a ridiculous trivia like guess what country I'm in and chat spams out of control as everyone tries to guess the answer. Perfect time to withdraw and see it float out of the chat buffer quickly. Good Luck!
  15. Always take breaks, always. You are playing a game that is mathematically against you, so it must be fun in order to compensate. If you are not having fun then STOP, go do something productive. So set a win target for winning and if you are not having fun stop playing. If you do these two things you can never "lose" you'll either make money by beating the odds and winning or you'll be sure to have had a good time for the money you play. One of the nice things about online casinos is it is so easy to walk away, you don't have to call a cab or anything, just walk away from the computer or put your phone back in your pocket!
