  1. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Isn't this like asking weather or not it's halal to buy a winning lottery ticket?
  2. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Do you actually believe people who consume bitcoin are willing to pay those crazy prices for it - or do you think the prices are being driven up by excited investors such as yourself. That will determine weather or not bitcoins a bubble.
  3. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    ahh that makes so much sense. I wonder how we can stop bubbles tho
  4. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    I wonder why bubbles are bad for the economy? It's not like that people wasted got destroyed - it just got given to someone else.
  5. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    you seriously didn't understand that 100 minus 99.9 is 0.1...??
  6. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    I think most purchasers of bitcoint weren't even consumers lol
  7. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    how is this relevant to bitcoin
  8. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    1) you could argue that for every successful business someone else had to lose out. Ie Walmart crushes local competition when it moves into a new area. Based on that is it halal to invest in Walmart. 2) I don't know what you technically mean by speculation but you are pretty much guaranteed a profit in this thought experiment (see binomial distribution)
  9. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    Is betting multiple times on a biased random walk haram. So if a coin has 70% chance of being heads and 30% chance of being tales and if you win you double your money. So if I have $100 I am (pretty much) guaranteed a profit if I keep betting $1 on heads.
  10. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    I wouldn't think so. The insurance company assumes your risk - so you are buying a service from them. People don't get insurance hoping on the off chance their house gets flooded so they can win a payout - they buy insurance in order to secure their assets incase of a disaster
  11. Cryptocurrencies: THE FUTURE IS HERE

    i mean that adds market value to bitcoin - so if anything it detracts from bitcoin being a bubble
  12. An awesome shirt i found, Proud to be Muslim.

    you can design the shirt and teesprings have a factory that produces the shirts on demand. You get like a 50/50 split of any revenue made. This dude just decided to make a design and advertise it to a niche audience lol
  13. What's the big deal about net neutrality. I realise you could control information but at the end of the day the infrastructure belongs to/ is licensed by the isp. Shouldn't they have the final say on how much bandwidth every site is allowed?

    1. Mufasa


      Government controls private industry to ensure fairness in all sorts of ways. And they should.

  17. salam

    lol not really
  18. salam

    salam its me superman/spud. I basically had exams so I changed my password to a random combination and threw it away so I wouldn't be tempted to log on. So yea I had to make a new account. I thought I'd decide to troll mo but it didn't really work lol, he is too patient mA. Also, I don't like this new layout and the fact that there is no chat.
  19. salam

    In most Muslim households their satalite dish points towards Mecca so they can get better signal for the Taraweeh in the kaaba during Ramadhan.
  20. Is insurance a scam?

    I understand that insurance makes sense - you pay $1000/year and all your assets (potentially worth 100,000s of dollars) are protected. But the whole business model depends on most people never needing to make a claim. Could you not argue that instead of paying an insurance company the vast majority of people are better off putting that money aside in a savings account or something. Of course there will be a couple of people who are totally screwed over when they can't repair their house - but most people end up better off without insurance
  21. Magical Dreams

    so it was basically door to door sales? Regardless - they weren't offering you a stake in the company so it's not a venture as far as you're concerned (which is also what your definition states)
  22. Magical Dreams

    no - they were asking you to deliver leaflets and make sales. How is that a business venture
  23. Magical Dreams

    oh yea I remember. Not exactly a business venture imo
  24. Magical Dreams

    what did you reject
  25. What are you reading?

    This all sounds very pretentious lol
