1  Economy / Speculation / Nice ride but i'm dumping on: September 21, 2017, 01:02:25 AM
Well I've ridden many waves with BTC (yes check my bitcointalk account joining date) but have recently sold down (not completely out).

Here's my reasoning.
1. The Roger Ver vs Core discussions - I think he's right and would rather move to BCH than stay in BTC (this was nice watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R8ckM-TDHI). I get some of Cores arguments but it took way too long for me to move coins recently (and I paid a 'high priority' fee)... and that's just a crap user experience that i wouldn't get with other coins. I've been in application development for approx 20 years and have seen many discussions between tech geeks and business users... this just seems like another variant. Personality wise the core team seem very geeky (just look at the photos) and I'm guessing they all share very similar personality traits so they fail to see or identify with a diverse range of opinions (disclaimer - i don't know them personally so i may be wrong) .

2. The uncertainty in November with another fork. I'm guessing it won't go smoothly but difficult to know what will happen.

3. The china issues... there's enough threads on it but difficult to tell which way it will go in the long run.

4. I wanted some money, always comes in handy 

5. My gut feel - Since inception BTC has always followed a trend of a really high jump in price, followed by a few dead cats bouncing, followed by carnage... which i believe is still to come in the next month or so.

If BTC drops to less that 2K, i might buy back in... but I'll probably only buy BCH or see what other BTC fork comes out of November.

good/bad decision?

Goodluck,
The Fajman


2  Economy / Service Discussion / Which exchange will make history and be the first to switch to mBTC? on: November 28, 2013, 04:42:01 AM
1. Iím wondering which exchange will make history and be the first to switch to mBTC?

2. What exactly does making the switch mean?
    a.   Is it just changing the price on their main page
    b.   Adding extra procedure to their APIís  (Note Ė I havenít used these so Iím guessing at how they work)
    c.   Changing their current APIísÖ although that sounds risky.

How hard could it be? and why not since it will remove a psychological barrier (especially for the BTC newbs)
3  Economy / Auctions / [WTS] - 5 Direct ASICMINER shares at 4.6BTC on: July 05, 2013, 04:30:51 AM
I am selling 5 of my direct ASICMINER shares @ 4.6 BTC each (fixed price).

No minimum purchase quantity. First come, first served.

Escrow accepted, you pay the fees, John K preferred.

Auction lasts till they are all sold or I decide to cancel it (honouring purchases until then of course). Note - if you agree to purchase and pay within timeframe I will not withdraw from the deal (even if the price takes off).

Payment is required within 12 hours from purchase.

If the purchased shares are paid for before the next dividend payment but for some reason the share transfer has not been completed, I will forward the received dividend to the new owner.

I dont really want to bother friedcat with confirmation for so little shares (and I want to sell today), pay for escrow if u want to reduce risk.
