2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Coins that have a working product and revenue on: March 06, 2018, 09:31:12 PM

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Thin the herd, which alts should I keep? on: March 05, 2018, 05:44:05 PM
I bought tiny bags of too many shitcoins. Which are worth keeping?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Bitmain $100 voucher on: February 27, 2018, 04:04:15 PM
Bitmain just sent out these:

https://blog.bitmain.com/en/lunar-new-year-2018-coupon-giveaway/

Would anyone be interested in my $100 coupon? I wont be buying any more miners, but figure someone here might want it. I am not trying to make any money on this, but to make it fun I will accept any ERC20 shitcoin in exchange (doesn't have to be $100 worth). PM me your Bitmain user ID and shitcoin of choice and I will send you the coupon and my wallet address.  Thanks!
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Anyone have a good Telegram discussion group? on: February 16, 2018, 12:57:27 AM
I don't know if it is worth posting this or if I will be bombarded with PnD group invites, but can anyone point me towards a Telegram group with good discussion about alts. Ones where people actually read the whitepapers and have intelligent things to say about the pros/cons? Thanks
6  Economy / Economics / Long read: An Institutional Investor's Take on Cryptoassets on: February 13, 2018, 07:25:22 PM
It is very long, but very good. Has anyone read this paper by John Pfeffer? Scroll to the conclusion on page 22 for a shortened TL;DR.

https://s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/john-pfeffer/An+Investor%27s+Take+on+Cryptoassets+v6.pdf

Anyone's thoughts on the topic? BTC as a store-of-value will be more valuable than anything else as a means of payment, or protocol.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Found a way for new users to sign up for Binance despite it being locked out on: January 07, 2018, 03:19:22 AM
Currently Binance isn't allowing new users to sign up, but if you use a referral link it will allow you to sign up. Check my signature below this post for a referral link to see it work

9  Economy / Economics / ELI5 Why is eliminating like-kind tax that big of a deal? on: January 02, 2018, 06:50:10 PM
I dont understand how there is any difference in tax for someone who isn't holding for more than 1 year and only dealing with short term capital gains. Can someone correct me if I am looking at Capital gains tax the wrong way? Here's my example:

All short term (less than 1 year) trades will be taxed at your ordinary income rate.

https://taxfoundation.org/2018-tax-brackets/

Lets say you're in the 25% bracket. You buy $100 of BTC. You wait a few days and then trade BTC for XRP. In that time frame your original $100 BTC is worth $110 BTC, so you pay 25% of the $10 which is $2.50.

Now you have XRP and wait a month and trade it back to BTC. In this time your $110 XRP climbed to $150 XRP. You have a capital gain of $40, and 25% of that is $10. Your net tax bill to this point is $12.50.

Now you have $150 BTC, wait for a few days and sell it for $130 USD. This is a short term loss of $20 and you can use 25% of that (-$5.00) to deduct your bill. Your total net tax bill is $7.50. You have a net gain after tax of $22.50.

In the current setting, You do the same trades as above but are only taxed when you come back to fiat, so you started with $100, ended with $130. Thats a $30 gain, and a $7.50 tax bill. Your net gain after tax is still $22.50.
