  1. Hey everyone! I have see SO many threads so I am going to be here to put a end to all of this. Scroll all the way down if you do not care about what I have to say and just see the simple answer, for those who want to stay and read, I am going to break this down into two sections. Section one will be, mathematically speaking. Section two will be the physiological effects of mixing up your seeds! So lets get started! Mathematical Facts So first things first, before you read anything in this section you should have a basic understating of this section of the Stake website! https://stake.com/provably-fair/overview I will be going over some simple stuff below then summarize it for everyone! Client Seed The client seed is what YOU provide to Stake, It is the factor you control. It can be in any form: Numbers, Symbols, and even emojies! This client seed is then converted to a number form so it can be used in the calculations. Server Seed The server seed is the seed that Stake provides. This is to ensure that Stake is able to contribute to the result of the round, because without it we would be able to see if we won a bet or not before it was placed. The seed is displayed to us in a hashed version, this is for two main reasons: First it is a one way mathematical function (SHA256). This is in place to ensure no one will be able to reverse the seed and see the true server seed, because with this, we would be able to see the outcome of a game before we play. The other reason behind this is to be able to verify the server seed matches the hashed version. Nonce The nonce is simply a number that increments as every new bet is made, this creates a completely new result each time, without having to generate a new client seed and server seed. The implementation of nonce, ensures we remain committed to your client seed and server seed pair, whilst generating new results for each bet placed. (Yes I took this off the PF page because I cba to write this out). So what? With all of that, we can ensure that Stake does not rig any of the bets we place. All of that ensures a RANDOM result for each game, neither Stake or You (player) can predict the outcome. But Thomas, I am just unlucky will changing my seeds do anything? Not really. I mean, its random so it COULD in theory. But I would not rely on it. I personally do not change my seeds often. (More on why in the physiological effects section) Physiological Effects So this section will be short compared to the last one. We all ready know that Stake is not rigged. So, when you are losing a lot of bets does switching my seeds do anything? Yes and no. No because its random But yes, because this can be compared to the placebo effect. (A placebo is an inert substance or treatment which is designed to have no therapeutic value. Common placebos include inert tablets, inert injections, sham surgery, and other procedures.). An example of a common placebo in the psychology field are: Giving a patient a sugar tablet and telling them it cures something. They think it fixes the problem so in their brain they start to change and contribute it to the fake pill. The same effect can be seen on Stake. Lets say you are on a red streak on dice. You are chasing the "49.5000" payout. You lose 50 bets, so you change your seeds and then hit it instantly. Your brain will think, wow I got to change my seeds more often, when in reality it was just luck. So you will start to think that changing your seeds will change the outcome, when it reality it does not. TL:DR: No, it does nothing. Stake is not stupid; they would not risk their reputation to "pull the lever" on some bets. Its just not a long term profit goal. Thanks for reading! Please feel free to comment questions and feedback! I hope this made sense, I threw this together out of annoyance of people talking about changing seeds makes them win. lol
  2. Very sad news coming out today. He was an amazing basketball player For those who dont know him, Kobe Bean Bryant is an American former professional basketball player. He was insane. Holds a lot of world records. Source: https://www.tmz.com/2020/01/26/kobe-bryant-killed-dead-helicopter-crash-in-calabasas/
  3. There are very many in my town. They are pretty cool too! Its super super cool because I have one right next to my office. One of my coworkers saw me using it one day and was confused on what I was doing. It was pretty funny trying to explain it to him, because he has no idea what Bitcoin is. Also, you can google "Bitcoin ATMs near me" and it will find some in your area. If you dont have any, it would be pretty cool to start one. I know people who own Bitcoin ATMs, it is pretty profitable.
  4. this is common sense. Sad to see that people are falling for this. Some general tips for the web: Always verify the URL Never login anywhere that you dont trust. If you cant be sure that its the real stake forum, go to stake.com and click forum. Also, I think if you come across the a fake stake forum, you should report it to the hosting provider or the domain registrar. DM me if you want to know how Stay safe everyone!
  5. Hey! I recently took about a 9-10 day break from the Stake fourm, not because I was upset about something. The reason I quit for awhile was due to all of the "sat farmers". The only reason I am on here is to have a meaningful conversations with people and try to learn/better the Stake community. Sadly, most of the people here are not really here for the same reason. My suggestion to the Stake team would be to change the way sat is given to players, I think it should be given more for interaction i.e Reactions on post, quotes, and time between replies. Like if someone is replying to EVERY topic, within a very short period of time, they are most likely not here to engage with other users. Please feel free to reply with actual feedback or look for a conversation, not just a really dragged out paragraph on why its a good idea or whatever.
  6. Hey! I think this would be a great idea. something that would be fairly easy for the Stake team to do. Sadly, I think this would bring a lot of negative people who only stay for raffles and dont really add much of a positive impact to Stake. Also, some people would also just find ways to try and cheat the system.
  7. Hey. First of all, do you mind linking the source where you saw this? I would love to know why he thinks this. Also, you might of been better off posting this in the news section Have a good day!
  8. I try not to have a lot of emotions while gambling. If you let your emotions take control of you you make stupid choices. Most of the time after I finish gambling I am done and I am happy. I gamble to blow off steam, not to win just to ball out and have fun!
  9. Mine was going to one in the real world. There is nothing like the real thing. My best time on Stake was when I hit like 4 90x multipliers in a row. It was pretty cool! Yes, losing is bad and everything but its a part of gambling!
  10. There is honestly no such thing as a "Safe" strat. You can never really predict a 100% win or loss or a way to make profit. Gambling, is well, gambling. This post does not take into effect: House Edge (the 1% stake takes on each bet. If you are on a red train for awhile back you make it back in wins, you are still net negative money) I am sure you have a higher bankroll or are betting WAY less than a decent amount to win. Strats like this are pretty boring to do, and most of the time you lose. Yes "9017677.97" losses in a row is almost statistically impossible, You will be losing to house edge and sometimes being unlucky.
  11. Hey everyone! Today I wanted to know who uses "hidden mode". And I really want to know why. I think its a cool thing that everyone in chat says good job when you win and you should not want to hide lol. Do you have your stats off? why? Just something I was thinking about today. I will start: I have none of the privacy settings enabled because I like the experience when chat hypes you up!
  12. Lol, doubling or raising your bet when you are on a losing streak is never a good idea. Especially when playing plinko, high risk high reward. i would recommend only doing something like that on Dice, and at that, doubling every loss is still an awful idea. play smart, don’t get frustrated and don’t rage bet. The worst mindset is “I AM GOING TO WIN THIS ONE! ALL IN” so avoid that
  13. Both. Good, because I can buy more. I am a LONG TERM investor. I do not believe in spending BTC or even gambling it. I am waiting for the day when the masses of the world understand its potential for the world! Bad, because the media will see it and there will be that one a*shole "I knwe it btc scam coin". We will just have to see
  14. Since this just came up in the feed, it depends. Are you able to sit ALL day and farm, do everything right 100% of the time? No. Faucets are good if you do like 100 of them aday and you always claim as fast as you can. Sadly, many faucet sites are shutting down, and this is because they just are not making the SITE money. There are still plenty of big ones and I suggest you try those for your self. Going out and getting a real job is way way way better than doing those.
  15. Not good, as far as gambling goes. So far this year, all ready some good things have happened in my life! My puppy is still healthy and happy (pictures linked) I am also doing very well in IRL work and looking to get a promotion soon! Regardless, its only 11 days in. Just gotta wait and see!
