    Can we stop from doing gamble?

    Hello, deciding to stop doing something you enjoy can be challenging, there may be times when it feels impossible but remember lots of people have quit gambling and we can help you. Do your best to stay away from gambling, the ideal outcome is that you stay away. However if you do revert to gambling don’t get down on yourself. You can always get back on track and use the experience to learn how to stop next time. It is helpful to know lapses are normal and can happen at any time when you are trying to quit. When lapses occur, becoming aware of the triggers that lead you to gamble can help you manage urges more effectively in future situations. To give yourself the best chance of sticking to your new path, try some of our strategies for change. As with quitting smoking, people who stop gambling experience urges to gamble. Urges are an inevitable part of stopping gambling and a natural part of the process of regaining control. Every time you overcome an urge, you are gaining more and more control. Read more about urges. While you can restrict your exposure to gambling triggers, you will not be able to avoid them completely, which is why it is important to learn ways of managing the urges. Delaying the decision to gamble allows time for the urge to pass and for you to feel more in control of the decision. This is different to urge surfing as the focus is on the person using distraction from the urge to gamble rather than letting it pass without distraction. Distraction takes the focus temporarily away from the urge and can give you time to rethink your decision to gamble. Try the following next time you have the urge to gamble: -Relax and focus on staying calm. -Take some deep breaths to slow yourself down and refocus on what you can do now. -Try to distract yourself with an activity to keep calm, such as a shower or a bath. Or you may read a book, cook or watch a TV show to stop thinking about gambling. Find an activity that suits you. -Say to yourself "maybe I won't go, I will see how I feel in an hour" and then go and do something else. Remember you may find the urge returns when you stop the other activity. If this happens, perhaps try the urge surfing technique as above. Set a goal that you can achieve if you stop gambling or develop a list of reasons why you made the decision. For example: -I will have more money to put towards a holiday. -I will be able to hold my head up high. -My family will be proud. - will be able to pay my bills. -As my savings begin to grow money will have value once again. Staying quit Remember urges do not usually last longer than one hour. DELAY + DISTRACT = STAYING STOPPED Once you have decided to delay the decision to gamble, shift your attention to what you might like to do. It might be something you used to do before gambling became a problem, or something you've always wanted to try. Many people find engaging in sport fulfilling; this could be anything that gets you moving. From a daily walk or run, to joining a gym or team sport. When you feel an urge, do something else immediately and keep the following in mind: -Limit access to money -Surf the urge -Distract from the urge -Seek support from someone you feel you can trust. You don't have to call someone to talk to them about experiencing an urge. You might just want to ring and talk about something completely unrelated to gambling. Hope i was helpful.

  3. Hello, i guess you cant do nothing once you get hacked. But you can prevent it. For crypto in particular, once the access to your accounts is secure you must decide whether you should leave your assets on the exchange or be your own custodian. Both come with their own risks. Leaving it on an exchange: Your risk here is defined by the probability that this exchange will be hacked or be subject to new regulation. If you decide to go down this path, there are certainly better options than others. I know that the Coinbase team is doing a terrific job at keeping their assets secure. This does come with the drawback of users not being able to participate in certain airdrops, or not having access to new currencies from forks immediately, but I won’t delve into that topic here. Being the custodian: Your risk here is defined by the likelihood of your seed phrase been stolen, or all replicas of it being permanently damaged/irrecoverable. Someone could also get the password for your given wallet and steal the hardware from you, in which case, unless you immediately get a new wallet, recover your keys from the passphrase, and transfer all of your assets out, they’ll all be soon gone. You could also lose your passphrase, as well as the password as it infamously happened to Wired writer Mark Frauenfelder in his epic tale of hacking his own wallet. People should weigh the probability of the exchange being hacked versus the probability of their seed phrase being stolen or lost. For most people with little crypto exposure, I would recommend they leave their crypto on Coinbase as it probably has a lower probability than the risks involved in being your own custodian. In addition, it’s way more convenient to just have your assets there rather than have to deal with the hassle of custody. If you own a lot of crypto assets, you should avoid leaving coins in exchanges to avoid the risk of those being hacked as it famously happened to Mt. Gox, Bitfinex, and YoBit not so long ago. In 2014, Mt. Gox handled 70% of all Bitcoin transactions worldwide when 850,000 bitcoins belonging to customers were stolen. They subsequently filed for bankruptcy and went out of business. It’s certainly worth your time to learn how to protect yourself against these attacks. If you choose to go down this path, I would highly recommend you getting your own hardware wallet. The two main companies in this space are Trezor and Ledger. I’m not very familiar with Trezor but can vouch for Ledger. When you first setup your wallet, you will be prompted with a passphrase and a password, the latter being specific to that wallet. Think of the passphrase as your master password for all private-public key pairs you will use in the future. If your wallet is damaged or lost, you can recover all transactions on a new one by having this passphrase. Just as you can be the one recovering these keys, anyone else who gets access to it will be able to do so as well so make sure that you save it in a safe place. Safe means: not on a computer with internet access; not on a hard-drive that’s not encrypted; not on a paper that could be easily stolen. You should also have more than one copy in different places (all of which must have tight security since your system is just as secure as your weakest link) to protect yourself against a potential loss (hard-drive malfunction, fire, a potential robbery, and others). As you are probably thinking by now, being the custodian of your own keys is no easy job. As a side note, while hardware wallets are certainly great products, if you are an institution or someone who might be likely the target of a personalized attack, this path might also fall short. First, when talking about redundancy and safety, this is not a binary dimension but a spectrum. You could either leave a paper with your passphrase hidden in the closet or store it in a safety box inside of a bank. On top of the steps described above, you should also seriously consider multi-signature security. At a high level, this means that you’d need multiple keys to transfer your funds (e.g. 2-of-4 policy would be mean that there are 4 keys, and you’d need at least two of them). There are already a few companies like Coinbase and Anchor that provide this kind of service. Stay safe!

    How important is Crypto in your life now?

    Btc nowaways is importand on any way due to: Secured transactions I still struggle to enter my credit card details online because of the frequently occurring identity theft crimes. Since 2017, over a billion has been stolen through credit card fraud and this has left more than 5.2 million brits to cancel their credit card subscription. I believe those days are finally coming to an end. One of the unique selling points for cryptocurrency is the security and safety of funds transfer. This online currency secures transfer of funds between two people or businesses by using public and private keys. It is expected that this advantage will restore consumer and business confidence in online transaction. Multiple transactions One of the puzzling opinion regarding cryptocurrency is its ability to allow multiple transactions like the conventional credit card payment system. Do not be alarmed, it is expected that cryptocurrencies will retain the one card solution offered by card payment system from most commercial banks. The cryptocurrency system consolidates multiple features into one single unit thus giving you the ability to be your own bank. This implies that with your cryptocurrency you can subscribe to a lending scheme, initiate an international money transfer, exchange currencies and trade. The ApolloDae is one of such platform that provides the tools cryptocurrency users’ who needs to carry out the crypto exchange, coin base, crypto trading, ICO, token sale. Verified transactions Whenever I call the contact center from my phone line the background or my voice is enough to verify that I am human. This is not the same case for online interactions as the verification method will require text and pictures. This is the same for the traditional transactions, there is no one size fits all solution, verification procedure will change with each transaction. This creates room for dishonesty and less transparent transactions. On the other hand, the blockchain transaction is an online ledger available on several computers thus making transaction verification fairer and more transparent. This feature will help increase B2B and P2P transaction. But also it has a Risk It will be improper to ignore some of the challenges facing the cryptocurrency industry. The currency is not totally immune to theft through hacking and it creates a battle between cybersecurity experts and hackers. Apart from theft, the currency is prone to wild market fluctuation which means money can be gained or lost. Lastly, cryptocurrency is not backed up by gold, just math, and computer and because it’s a virtual money it needs to be backed up in the event of a computer crash. These are some of the demerits of cryptocurrency money, it is not perfect but definitely an improvement to the current system. There is certainly a future for cryptocurrency in the rapidly growing digital economy. Its application is gradually increasing as it is revolutionizing how people do business and live. It is expected that paper and coin printing will be phased be out in time. On till then, these are some of the impacts that using cryptocurrency might have in our lives.

    Is the world ready for Blockchain?

    Perceptions about blockchain, the distributed global ledger (or distributed ledger technology, if you will), have been seesawing back and forth, from outright skepticism (either "too good to be true" or simply another data management mechanism) to breathless predictions of shaking up the world as we know it. Maybe the reality is somewhere in between. The problem at this time is that real-world use cases and applications have not yet caught up to all the hope and hype.Blockchain continues its upward surge.We do know this: many organizations are at least testing the waters, to see what blockchain's all about, and if it will make sense for their business models. The folks at Deloitte have been looking at adoption patterns, and suggest some serious efforts are surfacing. "While blockchain is not quite ready for prime time, it is getting closer to its breakout moment every day." In a recent survey of 1,000 executives, there is evidence of "momentum shifting from 'blockchain tourism' and exploration to the building of practical business applications." About one-third of executives surveyed, 34 percent, say their company already has some blockchain system in production, while another 41 percent of respondents say they expect their organizations to deploy a blockchain application within the next 12 months. Here's the real kicker: nearly 40 percent of respondents say their organization will invest $5 million or more in blockchain technology over the coming year. So serious money is being committed to this new way of sharing, validating and storing data. However, there's a rub. The application world has not caught up to blockchain yet. "Adding to the uncertain state of blockchain adoption is the fact that while more than 41 percent of respondents say they expect their organizations to bring blockchain into production within the next year, 21 percent of global respondents—and 30 percent of US respondents— say they still lack a compelling application to justify its implementation," according to Linda Pawczuk, Rob Massey and David Schatsky, authors of the Deloitte report. The problem, as reported, "is that for all the talk about blockchain’s promise, there are very few active use cases they can currently employ to advance their beliefs. As a result, a certain 'blockchain fatigue' is beginning to set in among those who feel its potential has been over-communicated, while its real-world benefits remain elusive." Yes, there are some interesting use cases now being demonstrated -- including a blockchain-based shipping supply chain initiative from IBM and Maersk, and a blockchain-based food chain demonstration from Walmart. But it's going to take time before blockchain becomes commonplace within enterprises. Closing, world isnt ready for Blockchain yet but it will soon be.

    What have you learned when gambling?

    Hello, i would like to mention what gambling teached me so far. High risk, high rewards – It might not seem like a lot to some, but since I don’t gamble often spending $20 on a slot machine was a lot to me. I knew we didn’t have long before we had to head back to the hotel to get changed for the concert so I committed to gambling the full $20…and I lost $9 in a matter of 4 minutes. That’s the risk that you take with gambling, especially when you’re better more than the minimum each spin. But that risk can sometimes turn into a pretty big reward! I went to a millennials business entrepreneurial workshop and that was one of the things that was reinforced by all three speakers. You have to spend money to make it and sometimes high risks yield high rewards! Listen to a seasoned pro – I would’ve probably lost more money had I not listened to Taye who suggested we try different machines. I was so used to sticking the machines I recognized from other casinos, ones that I’d played on before and that was how I lost almost half of gambling allotment in less than five minutes! Switching to a machine that was not only new to me, but new to the casino (and honestly one that I wouldn’t have considered because I don’t watch ‘The Walking Dead’) I was not only able to get my $9 back, but I made an additional $113 on top of that. And all within a matter of minutes. This applies in other aspects of life; you don’t have to reinvent the wheel or be a team of one. Find mentors who are doing what you want to do, or are doing something similar and let them help you out. Often times they’ll offer you tips so that you don’t make the same mistakes they did. Quit while you’re ahead – You guys should’ve seen my eyes when the total winnings on the slot machine kept rising. I should’ve pulled out my phone and put my reaction on Snapchat, it was truly priceless. I thought about betting more, but decided at that moment to quit while I was ahead. I hit the cash out button and was so caught up doing my happy dance that I forgot about the margarita I’d ordered before I started playing. Yeah, that’s how fast I won the money. Sometimes it’s better to go out on top and that’s what I did that day. Even later, when the other ladies were playing a table game and I could’ve easily doubled my winnings I didn’t risk it. I was happy with the return I’d gotten on my investment. Sometimes in life people can get a little greedy, I know y’all have seen situations like this on shows like ‘Wheel of Fortune’ when the puzzle can easily be solved but the contestant wants to spin again to see if they can get more money and lands on the ‘Bankrupt’ spot. They were being greedy and they should’ve solved the puzzle. Yes, it’s nice to want more but don’t be greedy and know when to get off the ride.

    Bitcoin or ICOs?

    Hello, i would say that when comparing bitcoin and ICO tokens, it is important to note that you are not comparing like-for-like. Bitcoin is a digital currency that is used to store, send, and receive financial payments while most ICO tokens are utility tokens that play a specific role within a specific blockchain platform.It is, therefore, difficult to judge whether a bitcoin investment or an ICO investment is better. That decision is always up to the investor and is closely tied in with the investor’s risk preference. ICO tokens are a much riskier investment than bitcoin, but they also carry a higher potential to generate much higher returns if you manage to pick the right ones.At the end of the day, the smartest way to invest in digital assets is to build a well-diversified portfolio based on your risk preference and investment goals. Such a portfolio would likely include a substantial holding in bitcoin and small exposure to promising ICO tokens. The more conservative an investor is, the higher his or her bitcoin holding would be, while a more adventurous risk-taking investor would allocate a higher percentage to promising ICO tokens.To stay abreast of the world of investment in digital currencies and altcoins, take a moment to subscribe to the Bitcoin Market Journal newsletter today. There you will find the most compelling stories about new finance and the investment opportunities it represents. Additionally, be sure to visit our initial coin offerings page, where you will find up-to-date information about current and upcoming ICOs to help you make informed ICO investments.

    When the FUN stops STOP

    Hello, it is a fact that just as some people can become addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is possible for a person to become obsessed with an uncontrollable urge to gamble. For the problem gambler, making a bet is not just about having fun or winning money. Gambling becomes an emotional response to change the way they feel. Some problem gamblers may gamble to relieve boredom or avoid feelings of anxiousness or stress. Others may gamble to ‘numb out’ when feeling helpless, guilty, or depressed. As they continue to gamble, they become more and more emotionally and mentally dependent on gambling, with less and less control. The impact of this addiction is much greater than the obvious financial losses that can result from repeated gambling. The long-term result is a steady deterioration of the mental and physical health of both the gambler and their family. Surprisingly, problem gamblers are often the last ones to realize what is happening to them in spite of mounting negative consequences and increasing emotional impact. They may attribute their difficulties to a mere financial problem or believe they are just not being ‘smart’ enough when they gamble. The fantasy that one more big win will solve the financial problems and return everything to normal drives them on to gamble even harder.
