One of the most useful methods for tracking the price of crypto currencies and bitcoin is the use of news fundamentals. The best way to keep track on news other then the use of twitter is the use of crypto news aggregators, some of these aggregators also report social network sentiment and community participation gauges.
Below is a list of the best aggregators on the web appearing in no particular order:

Ahhh Reddit one of the worlds top 25 sites, what better place to learn from or advertise too. On our road to millions of dollars we will stop by reddit a lot so let us contemplate the top reddit financial subs that we can follow.
You do not have to engage on Reddit just lurk and read the subs, the wealth of information is invaluable and you will profit greatly just by hanging around these reddit subs !
/r/wallstreetbets Don’t pretend you don’t lurk here !! The degenerates of Finance the Wall Street Bets options market Y.O.L.O crew, if you do not lurk here already then you best start because you know… You Only Live Once !!
/r/personalfinance Well we best start at the start and end at the end, no better place then Personal Finance. This is the biggest sub of them all and you will get lost here, enjoy!
/r/AusFinance G’day mate, get your Shelia’s over here and chuck another prawn on the weber!!
/r/Boglehead In ones own worlds: “Bogleheads are die-hard fans of Jack Bogle and index fund investing in general – Jack Bogle founded Vanguard, is the father of index funds and an all-around inspiration for people who want to engage in passive investments (generally stocks and bonds) for a long-term return that will beat active alternatives.”
What better way to further our adventures then with some good old fashioned gold farming, and with the advent of blockchain gaming there is no better time then now to get involved with some bot development.
A game bot requires three things; vision, control output and a decision mechanism. Below you will find all the required tools you need to develop a state of the art Machine learning computer vision ROBOT, to farm MMO gold!!
https://www.tensorflow.org/js/tutorials Lets start at the start and that is tensorflow the robots “brain”, learn all you can here before you move on then you are ready to develop your bot. A bot needs a good brain ya?
https://www.npmjs.com/package/robotjs A must have, you will not get far without this, your arms and legs Mr Bot. Lets you move the mouse, type and click (Don’t forget to insure some randomization in your implementation to avoid that pesky anti-bot detection you may face).
https://www.npmjs.com/package/opencv4nodejs So you have your “brain” and your “appendages” the only thing missing is your “eyes” well openCV (Open Computer Vision) is the worlds finest eyes for your bot, just like tensorflow if you truly want to be a bot master you must learn all you can about openCV.
https://www.npmjs.com/package/tesseract.js So you have everything ya? Your brain and legs, arms and eyes!! But let me tell you while you are making a bot you will want to read the screen for text to get variables and such, this is the best way to do it with tesseract like the above if you learn this well you will be equipped to be the master of bots.
https://teachablemachine.withgoogle.com/ Easily train your image recognition models online then export to any format you need, no point having the “brain” if you have no pre established concepts.
The rest appear in no particular order, these are useful but not essentiual:
https://www.npmjs.com/package/fast-template-matcher Here we have a Nodejs native extension to search “subimage” inside an image using openCV get the position and then you can easily click on it, bobs your uncle, you have a bot. It’s just a simple algorithm to find the most prominent color in pictures but extremely useful.
https://www.npmjs.com/package/@vapi/node-yolo A bot needs good eyes and this I could not have named this better my self YOLO, this addon allows you to use a state-of-the-art, real-time object detection system called Yolo. This addon came out from a computer engineering final project, VAPi (You only look once).
https://www.npmjs.com/package/@google-cloud/vision If you are lazy and want to use a API solution here we have Google Vision, its great to jump right in and get started but keep in mind it is a hosted solution, this one is another option for your “eyes”.
Some video’s done in python but still great for learning, maybe one day i will make some for NodeJS but until that day comes enjoy these:
A Gift for reading this far: Now these 2 are very very cool and basically allow you to teach a AI to play any game with no work at all. I thought maybe they are to powerful for you plebs but in the spirit of freedom of information here: (these 2 are python and not nodejs):
http://serpent.ai/ Serpent.AI is a simple yet powerful, novel framework to assist developers in the creation of game agents. Turn ANY video game you own into a sandbox environment ripe for experimentation, all with familiar Python code. The framework’s raison d’être is first and foremost to provide a valuable tool for Machine Learning & AI research. It also turns out to be ridiculously fun to use as a hobbyist! (yep you read that correctly).
Forget about the fundamentals and the technical analysis the new way to beat the market is with using social edge trading. This is when the trader gains a edge on the market threw simply analyzing social chatter and search characteristics then compares them to known bench marks and opens a trade position.
“What does this mean” I hear you ask, well put simply you monitor social networks for the latest trend/craze analyses the sentiment and then invest in a stock that is part of that craze/trends Industry.
Let me give you some example to help you understand:
The Tiktok home made slime craze A long trade in the company that produces “Elmore” glue would of seen amazing profits !
Covid immunization Any bull position in travel and tourism, airline’s, cruise ships have and will still more see amazing gains.
TikTok makeup craze Take a look at the ticker ELF notice when the TikTok craze started it shot threw the roof ? That is no coincidence.
Below is a list of tools and sites I use to trade this strategy so far it has been very good. Please leave a comment with any tools I missed and I will add them to this list.
At the time of writing this will cost about 10$ in transaction fee’s and you can profit over $100 if done correctly.
Decentraland has come a long way last time I was invested in MANA and LAND packages they barley had a working prototype of the level editor online, now its a full blown world and let me tell you its bloody amazing !!
You can do anything, make anything, be anything but this post is not about how dam awesome Decentraland is, this post is about how you can cash in once more by registering a name (avatar) then selling the token on a marketplace like opensea.io.
Of course all the good names are taken and they are already being sold for hundreds some thousands of dollars on the marketplaces, but if you use your imagination you will still find some real gems.
Before we head on over to avatars.decentraland.org lets take a look at something I found interesting while researching a valuable name and this is the DOA (decentralized autonomous organization) behind Decentraland and some of the proposals put up for vote, yep you guessed it people are trying to ban such great names like “NiggerLover“, “Faggot” and “Coon“, needless to say the smart people holding the DOA tokens all voted NO! (imagine what kind of self righteous asshole would even propose name bans….. ).
Now we know what names are valuable lets go get one, head over to avatars.decentraland.org and of course all the good names will be taken, but keep trying until you find something nice pay your 15$ or whatnot in transaction fees and bobs your uncle, done !
Now head over to your favorite market place and profit…. If anyone wants to purchase the name “gook” from me, it is for sale💰
So you just got into crypto, heard it was going to moon ya? So you purchased some ETH and now want to play around with DAPS/NFT (Decentralized apps, and Non fungible tokens).
So you make a transaction to purchase a funny hat on decentraland and go to sleep, only to find in the morning the transaction is still pending and any other transaction you made after is also pending….
You are a degenerate gambler and you need your funds now !! Well fear not, to fix this it is as simple as following the steps below:
Send your own address (yes your wallet / stuck address) a 0ETH transaction but edit the nonce to overwrite the stuck transaction, this means set the nonce to the same as the stuck transaction.
Whats a nonce you ask, well when you make a new ETH wallet with zero transactions your nonce is 0 (funny word i know) and with each transaction it goes up by 1.
So how to do this, lets assume you have metamask we will need to go into advanced settings and turn on the ability to set a nonce (this will allow us to set the nonce on the confirmation page before we send the transaction and in turn overwriting the old one and canceling it).
Go into settings:
Click advanced, then set the “Customize transaction nonce” flag to on:
Now it is as simple as creating a new transaction (click send from main metamask window) and send to yourself 0ETH, then click next and on the confirmation page you will be given the chance to set a custom nonce, set this to the nonce of the stuck transaction (to find this just click on the transaction in your activity feed and note the nonce).
…lets talk about a different kind of docking, If you spend any time at all around developing software or on Linux systems you will inevitably need to install docker (a real life saver indeed), thanks to Ubuntu installing is a breeze.
This was tested on Ubuntu 18.04 but will work on all versions due to the nerdy magic use of ✨$(lsb_release -cs)✨ !
Lets start with a quick update: sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade
Now we can get the system ready by installing the required packages: sudo apt-get install curl apt-transport-https ca-certificates software-properties-common
Now that we are all ready we can add the Docker repositories, start by adding the GPG key, like so: curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
Now time to add the actual repository and do a final update (I know your attention span is short we are almost done…): sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) stable" sudo apt update
Finally hey! Now we can Install with the following command !! sudo apt install docker-ce
And to check all is ok…. sudo systemctl status docker
Congratulations Now all is ok . But one final task to insure it works as intended (without sudo) and that is add your current user to the docker user group otherwise you will get errors like “Permission Denied when not sudo docker“, to fix this run the commands: sudo group add docker sudo usermod -aG docker $USER newgrp docker docker run hello-world
🐋 🐳Do not look up docking on urban dictionary….🐳 🐋
Yep google love to make things hard it seems, and luckily we are not alone on this one many people in discord chat and all over the interwebz are complaining that they can not work out how to add a new website to google analytics and if you are like us you would be doing this many times over and over, here this remains for future prosperity.
