  1. Attachment limits

    Artist portfolios are something that the team is working on, and while we have no ETA for them as of now, they kinda need to be online within a year for the project to stay relevant in the eyes of the general public. But having your own portfolio is a good idea for many reasons other than that still, and setting one up with something like WordPress only takes an afternoon even for a complete newbie. And also gives the insight to understand why free things are limited...
  2. Mining or trading which is best

    Any sort of block rewards won't really make much difference to be honest, because mining is only worth it if you can actually mine without them, so while they're nice for the blockchains that offer them, ultimately they are completely irrelevant for mining operations.
  3. Now its the time of ArtByte

    Yeah, for someone looking for profits steady money is wasted money, because while you're not making any losses, you are also not generating any income. Same goes for keeping excessive amounts of cash at hand; while it's good to have enough to cover your living expenses for few months in the worst case scenario, anything after that is just wasted because the money should be invested one way or another.
  4. Now I have to admit that I'm not all that familiar with the subject, but when your content is 100% CGI, I think that everyone can agree that it won't reflect reality in the first place, no? So using that for marketing seems a bit weird to me to begin with, unless they're just some niche specific filling for the layout, in which case this is a non-issue anyways.
  5. I think that the "get rich fast" hype has died down tremendously, and the people who jumped in around Christmas have cut their losses (because... well, who know why that sounds like a good idea...), so new money isn't flowing in and making much changes in the prices. I think that it'll be the end of the year earliest when any really large growth can be seen earliest, otherwise it's just small changes mainly behind the scenes.
  6. This is also known as Dollar Cost Averaging, meaning that over a period of time investing the same amount with differing (either lower or higher) buy in points you'll end up making up for the occasionally higher price by buying some from the dips, and it's a known and trusted method to invest in anything. Personally I go for about 100-200 euros a month for crypto, so while sometimes things are down, it just means that if I ever happen to buy just before the dip it will even out.
  7. Update on Forum Rank Bonuses

    It most likely will, as simply having any sort of clear timeframe for... well, anything, makes for a good confidence boosting. While before the rewards were always paid, not having any idea when that would happen could easily lead into people not being so certain about the viability of the whole system, so glad that issue has been solved now!
  8. I would say it depends on what you aim for. Realism for the sake of realism is not always productive, as for many the whole point of creating art in the first place is to be able to create something that is unrealistic, to let their imagination to run wild. But realistic CGI always does blow the mind, and especially nowadays when creating such is not only limited to billion dollar companies!
  9. Charcoal on Paper | Commissioned Portrait

    Very nice work, follows the original absolutely perfectly!
  10. Hello from a Virtual World Explorer!

    Seems like ABY is starting to be quite a big thing in Second Life, keep hearing about it all the time! Welcome to the forums, glad to have you with us!
  11. Really? I can only name maybe two or three. Are they all from movies or is this a combination of different origins?
  12. I'm reading this book right now...

    Yeah, I reckon that it's pretty subjective thing. Also there are many other mediums for storytelling nowadays, from something as simple as an audio book to video games. Some might consider games being just toys for kids, but in reality many of them easily rival or even pass movies in the depth and quality of their stories.
  13. Not a fan of Star Wars myself, but this art is gorgeous! And here's the uncredited portfolio of the artist, where these images were pulled from: http://richard-wilkinson.com/mainsite/
  14. why funds are not extinct?

    Have you tried redownloading the blockchain in the client? Are you connected to any peers (shows in the tool bar in the bottom)?
  15. ArtByte Vs BTC Vs LTC Vs ETH

    You should look into "old school" investing as well to maybe easier get rid of that "I want everything, NOW!" mentality. When a good year yields 8-10% increase in stocks, that kinda puts it into perspective better that you need to look years into the future to amass anything really worthwhile. Another, albeit riskier (and thus better yielding), venue could be peer to peer lending, where you need to "lock in" your money for months, if not years as well, but tracking their progress could be a bit easier.
