  1. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    Bitcoin investments are yet another example of how the world economy is becoming increasingly comprised of speculator behavior, investing in markets and/or assets, over saving and physical production. All these bubbles being created and inflated do not in any way symbolize a healthy sustainable economy.  Expect a huge sale of Bitcoin from Tesla once all the lavish sheep buy in and that time they will not inform in advance    
  2. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    I just came here to see what @MikeMelga has to say about Tesla & BitCoin ClusterFuck   I first bought BitCoin couple of weeks ago when it was around 31k Euros. Then it dropped to 26k and I was thinking to buy little more, but somehow was so busy for last two weeks. Now this news is WTF is going on
  3. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    I am not sure if anyone aware of pi network - https://minepi.com/   Looks like another digital currency in 2nd stage of development right now. There are many critics like bitcoin had in early 2009. They have published a whitepaper  but its still not clear if there is real blockchain behind the mining from mobile.   But anyways, since it is free and already have 10M+ Users base, I installed it on my mobile  and already have some pi's   If any one is interested they can register using below reg code: (as of now you can only get it from someones referral)       Pi is a new digital currency developed by Stanford PhDs, with over 10 million members worldwide. To claim your Pi, follow this link https://minepi.com/thedanglingpointer and use my username (thedanglingpointer) as your invitation code.
  4. In case anyone is silly enough like me and still holding Wirecard stocks   https://www.finanzen.net/nachricht/aktien/nach-bilanzskandal-deutsche-boerse-wirecard-wird-am-7-januar-letztmals-auf-xetra-gehandelt-wirecard-aktie-im-freien-fall-9671154    
  5. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Since I have always missed the bitcoin train. Last week when it was around 20k I was trying to buy but couldn't set up Kraken and missed again. Now its over 30k   Does anyone invest in other alt currencies like Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum or Polkadot?   30k+ is now I think too high and doesn't make sense to join, though I could be wrong and it could still reach 50k by summer
  6. Opening a savings account - which German bank is best?

    Hi, I want to open a savings account to park some money and came across this thread. I have already bought stocks and want to save some money monthly, to control my expenses. The idea is to put some money lumpsum after opening the account and then try to save couple thousand euros every month.    While reading this thread came across  - akbank and tfbank which both provide some sort of interest   tfbank looks good as they say that they will pay 0.30% month interest. Is anyone using TFBANK? Is it safe to park 30-50k euros with such banks?   And can we also open joint accounts with such banks like TFbank?

    Is Aomekie also good brand? Found this one which looks decent for starting and has a bag for storage and would arrive before Christmas.   Also, not able to understand the difference between the two models?   https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07PDJF39C/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?pd_rd_i=B07PDJF39C&pd_rd_w=vKHjU&pf_rd_p=403c666b-0b30-4f66-afde-0388ffdf2c39&pd_rd_wg=vqs8x&pf_rd_r=JPZ4YQWG3SGX11XPRV67&pd_rd_r=8a1ff4df-b21b-469b-9112-ab3fd9748de6&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEySjBTTFRDUjBPNjQ4JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzg2NDU2MzlJUThQWDJCWjNERiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDI3NzEyMVJCTEw0SURVWjRUNCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1     https://www.amazon.de/Astronomisches-Einsteiger-Amateur-Astronomen-Smartphone-Mondfilter/dp/B01N9EIRCI/ref=sr_1_10?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&dchild=1&keywords=teleskop&qid=1608120613&sr=8-10&th=1

    Astroshop has lot of models from Celestron, Omegon and Dobson models   Probably looking to find something from here which could be delivered before Christmas   https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/10/m,Omegon/a,Teleskope.Allgemein.Serie=Basic   https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/10/a,Teleskope.Empfohlen-Fuer=Beginners

    ohhh..what a miss  
  12. Astronomy observations - let's get together

        Do you suggesst anything for 150mm? I see below one with 127mm but has mixed reviews.   https://www.amazon.de/-/en/21049-Celestron-PowerSeeker-127EQ-Telescope/dp/B0007UQNKY/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=celestron%2B150%2Bmm%2Bteleskop&qid=1608192584&sr=8-6&th=1   otherwise, a couple from astroshop also looks promising and could arrive before Christmas, but I have to order one today at any cost   https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/zoomion-telescope-stardust-76-az/p,45328   https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/zoomion-telescope-apollo-80-eq/p,46560#tab_bar_1_select
  13. Astronomy observations - let's get together

    Thanks @pmd and @MikeMelga, I think for starting Aomekie also looks okay. It could be delivered before Christmas   For Celestron, the guy said that he has used it to see Jupiter, Mars and Saturn but the planets were very small. Buying an extra "Okular" might give better results.
  14. Astronomy observations - let's get together

    Thanks @toBnruG for the link. Yes, it would be better to first gauge the interest before buying a superior one. The one you shared seems a good starting point. Some people have mentioned that the tripod is not stable enough.   Any idea which one would be better between these two. The first one is new from Amazon and second one is 6 years old but also looks good quality.    I need to order today, so that it can arrive before Christmas    https://www.amazon.de/Astronomisches-Einsteiger-Amateur-Astronomen-Smartphone-Mondfilter/dp/B01N9EIRCI/ref=sr_1_10?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&dchild=1&keywords=teleskop&qid=1608120613&sr=8-10&th=1   https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/celestron-astromaster-70az-teleskop-fuer-anfaenger/1603579281-187-9614?utm_source=sharesheet&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_android

    Thanks @pmd yeah it might be good idea to visit a shop and try something, but lets see if this is open after the lockdown which is beginning tomorrow. I am also checking the ebay option you posted
