Would the real Satoshi please stand up

Its been really big news as the claimed “real” Satoshi Nakamoto makes an appearance and wants to reveal himself after a decade of staying anonymous.

The REVEAL is suppose to happen in 3 parts and Part 1 got released just yesterday. Part 2 and Part 3 would be coming up within this week.

The reasoning behind this reveal is still yet to be announced which would be in Part 3 of his website.

https://satoshinrh.com/

Until now there is still no proof that this is the real Satoshi as he currently holds about 980k of Bitcoins where there has been no transaction on it.

So the big question still remains .. is he the real Satoshi ? If he is .. all he has to do is just to move any amount of BTC from that wallet to anywhere … really does not matter nor does it matter how much. It would be proof of ownership I would guess.

Market Impact?

We are just days away from the full reveal, however, would you think that it would impact the market stability? Would it pump bitcoin or will it crash and burn ? or would it just be another social experiement which someone is doing and does not have any significant market change.

Afterall … for a billionaire , he did use only $1 to buy his domain. So lets wait and see what happens once all 3 parts has been revealed.

Who knows … perhaps he is going to distribute his 980k of BTC to everyone ! but hey …. anything could happen…

So its my lil Boy’s birthday

Today I celebrated with my lil boy his 10th Year Old birthday…. its amazing on how fast they grow up. I guess all parents feels happy yet a bit sad watching their kids grow up.

I’m blessed as I’m able to watch them grow from the tiny lil baby they were and gone thru with them the ups and downs in their live so far. I guess its because I choose to sway away from the 9 to 5 jobs to be with them.

I do remember someone once asked me that when we are about the draw our last breath, what would be our last thoughts? So I decided that no matter what, I would spend as much time as I could to watch my kids grow up and be with them as they turn into young adults.

I do know that I would cherish every single moment and memories of the time spent with them. Yes its never easy as they can be angels one minute and monsters the next … however its part of growing up I guess.

I’m thankful to god for having a really supportive lovely wife and 2 amazing kids… We’ve been thru a lot over many years together.

Happy 10th Birthday Lil Chris … aka .. @bitrockerjr

To the MOON with Kraken Futures

Everyone who has a little fortune on crypto either actual or fictional gets really excited when the price of Bitcoins ( BTC ) goes up and they go beserk that the price starts going down.

So far there are 4 types of people which I’ve met and I could categorize them like this when BTC starts fluctuating like a yoyo on steroids.

  1. Hold on their crypto and yet imaginatively think how much they have either made or lost if they sold it just now.
  2. Stuck in ALT coins and wished they had sold it when it was at its All Time High (ATH)
  3. The FOMO dude … gets excited or frustrated but do not hold a single crypto wishing they had imaginatively bought some when it was 6 cents.
  4. A trader … enuf said !

Not many dare venture into crypto trade with so much news of exchanges being the targets of hackers and exchanges just do an exit scam. Some also tried it out and had bad experience with it, therefore, they decided not to try it again.

There is no right nor is there wrong in doing any of the above as its your money and your assets. If you had held BTC at a certain point in time, you would almost be in profits just by holding your coins as the value had increased so much that it would be stupid to buy pizza with 10,000 BTC.

Just like in some traditional markets, today’s variety of crypto trading has widened to match the options of the traditional markets. Instead of only the typical exchange which only offers Buy High and Sell Low trade boards. We are all now introduced to other instruments like FUTURES Market for crypto.

What are Crypto Futures Trading ?

source

In a really simple term, you are able to make money whichever way the markets go. Now, also remember that you are also able to loose money whichever way the market goes.

One of the platforms which I kinda like to mess around with is Kraken. I think it has a really slick interface and most importantly, the platform is fast and so far reliable for me.

In most of these Crypto Futures trade platform, you would normally see that they do not use the symbol of BTC as you are not really trading Bitcoins / USD , however, you are trading Bitcoin Contracts. Each contract is normally worth $1 . So if you are buying $100 , you are actually buying 100 contracts.

Image result for crypto futures buy low sell high

There are 2 main type of trades. You can either buy LONG or SHORT. Buying LONG means you buy it at a low price now and possibly sell it at the Higher price. Going SHORT would meant your want to sell at a high price now and then buy it at a lower price. So both ways you are able to earn a lil bit of $$$ …. if you place your order in the right direction.

Those are the 2 most basics you need to know. There are so many other things you can do to minimize your losses, to increase your profits with minimal capital.

So if you are keen or even interested in starting to trade crypto futures market ( its not meant for the weak heart ) I do suggest you just give it a try with perhaps at least $50 or $100 ?

Only trade what you can afford to lose should always be your no.1 rule. As things move extremely fast in the crypto world.

I do suggest you look up tutorials which is abundance on youtube from people who has been trading crypto futures and you will be able to learn a lot. Again, it’s your money, therefore, I’m sure you would always like to make the best decision to your best ability.

Cheers and have a brilliant week ! Stay safe !

Tools you need to save battery on your gaming laptop

We all have dreamt of that gaming laptop and all that power and performance on the go. However, with great performance, comes a great price as your battery will go flat extremely fast and your machine will heat up like a toaster.

With that, it would drain your batteries so fast that you can’t even finish that last quest … or that last level … or that last battle.

What is the problem ?

Its pretty simple, you may have an i7 processor and its running many cores to give you that performance. To check how many cores you have, you can just press SHIFT+CTRL+ESC and you will be able to see it under the performance tab

In this case, there is 6 cores and every since core takes a certain amount of voltage to power it up. So when you are running games or any heavy task this starts firing up and heating up.

When this happens, your laptop fans will start spinning fast trying to get as much air to cool your entire CPU. Powering your CPU and powering the fan to cool your CPU will results in consuming your batteries fast. Also have to take into account that you may have a high end Graphics card which also requires to be cooled.

This is different in a gaming PC as you have way more space to place in larger fans or even liquid cooling. However, in the laptop, there is no room for that and you would require to do something about it.

What is the solution ?

One way of doing this is to undervolt your machine. Meaning give less power to the CPU & Graphics card and also ensuring you do not compromise your gaming experience too much. This post is to show you tools which you need to do exactly that. However the settings and how to use it varies from laptop to laptop, you may require to google it to figure out the best settings for your machine.

Undervolting the CPU

Intel Xtreme Tuning Utility – ( download )

This is one tool which you would be able to tweak your CPU voltage. Make sure you save the default profile before you make any changes so you are able to revert back if you made a mistake. If you add in more voltage, you are most likely overclocking your CPU and will add more power. Please do not make extreme adjustments unless you are absolutely sure on what you are doing.

Underclocking your GPU

MSI Afterburner – ( download )

This is the most common tool used to either overclock or underclock your GPU. There are many writeups about about using this tool. You may want to google it up and read more about it. You can relatively make a lot of changes here and its best done while you have your game open and to see if it has affected your game performance. You can adjust just how much you are willing to sacrifice in FPS for that extra battery savings.

What now ?

Once you have downloaded with it and familiar yourselves with these tools, go ahead and try out several settings. I managed to go from 4 hours on the battery to 7 hours on normal usage, however on the gamng way much less but a lot more compared to previously before the tweak.

REMEMBER ! do not make changes to this if you have NO idea what you are doing. Google and YouTube has tons of searches to refer to from people who has already done tweaking. You may be able to find the most optimal settings without compromising too much of your performance.

HAPPY GAMING !

How to upgrade your windows 10 home to pro for only $25

Now this post is for those of you who perhaps just bought a new laptop and it came together with Windows 10 Home ( by default ) however you then realized that you need more functionality such as Hyper-V and other networking sharing features.

One way of upgrading would be buying it off the Microsoft Store but if you see the price, it is really really expensive. Some of you may think, hey why not I just download a crack or something … then you risk your laptop getting some virus or ransomware or worst a keylogger which may compromise your system and all your accounts and password.

The typical cheapskate that I am, I would try to scour the web for the cheapest yet legal way to get this done without compromising my security.

And I FOUND the SOLUTION !

You sometimes find solutions in the most unexpected place. The website is called G2A ( https://www.g2a.com )

If you just did a search for Windows 10 Pro , you will see numerous sellers selling it and I do suggest that you pick a seller that has the highest rating and have sold a lot.

Once you are done with adding it to your shopping cart you can just put in your email address and click Go to payment

They can literally accept any sort of payment and they even localize those based on your IP address. And YES they also accept BTC as a payment form

Once you are done with the payment and such, you will then receive an email of the purchase that you have just made. It would contain a link where it would reveal your product key to your Windows 10.

You can then read the quick guide if you don’t know how to activate your windows however if you just copy the key and then head over to your Windows 10 Home under the ABOUT tab. Just click change product key and upgrade your Windows

Once you are done, Windows will then perform the upgrade and it may take 1 or 2 restarts but once its done, if you go back to the ABOUT tab, you will see that the Windows Edition is now Window 10 Pro !

So there you go! Instead of spending hundreds of dollars or compromising your system, you bought a genuine activated Windows 10 Pro OEM.

What other features do you get with Windows 10 Pro ?

So only if you want the extra features then I would suggest you to upgrade. The only main reason I choose to upgrade was that I needed Hyper-V which is a Virtual Machine for Windows. This ables me to test out software and run applications without compromising my entire system.

Hope this helps and you get to save money on your upgrade. Cheers and have a great day !!!

Just one more day till next STEEM sharing

So its just 1 more day before another STEEM sharing session. That would be my closure for the month of June. This month has been a very busy month with many different events and met a bunch of really amazing individuals in the blockchain space.

Image result for malaysiablockchainweek

Kuala Lumpur has been gaining a lot of focus of expansion for crypto projects after the announcement of 3 conditional licensed Crypro Exchanges by the security commissions of Malaysia.

This is why, its one of the best place to start talking and getting more awareness about STEEM within the community here. Projects will now realize that STEEM is not only about blogging however, its driven by content and its not to be seen as a competitor to other blockchains as it is easily able to co-exist with other projects as a form of content distribution. Exactly like how reddit or even FB is used.

So in the upcoming event tomorrow, I would be sharing about STEEM to a community which is NOT from the blockchain space and I’ve tweeked my slides to make it easier for it to be more relatable to the audience. Hopefully it works.

More information about this event can be taken from the link below.
