1  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin Price Poll 31 December 2021 - Now 20 July 2021 $30,000 on: July 20, 2021, 08:14:35 PM
That is the question.  I'm thinking we are near the bottom.  About $30,000 has been support for awhile.  A lot of bad news has come out and while there can be surprises, I think the bad news is out for this cycle.  Probably the good news will start to come out e.g. the USA approving an ETF.
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / USA Citizens - How are you tracking/reporting for Tax Purposes? on: July 15, 2021, 02:01:34 PM
----Moderator please move if this is not the correct forum.--------

USA Citizens - How are you tracking/reporting for Tax Purposes?  What software are you using?

This is where and how I buy and invest my crypto and I can see it being a big headache trying to report it all on my taxes.

buy/sell/invest - For better rates of interest I might buy on CoinbasePro and move the crypto to Kraken.
Coinbase/Coinbase Pro
Binance USA

Move crypto from above to invest
Celsius Network

On Chain investment - I have no idea what info they provide as to the value of the interest I receive.  This is where I would use MetaMask to invest on chain.  These sites do not ask for any information about me.  I can not see how these sites could report any information to the IRS.  But I need the cost basis so I compute the taxes correctly.
e.g AMP & GRT

I have no idea how to track and report GAS fees for moving Crypto around.

Also, I can see if I bought crypto on one exchange and sold it on another, it would be hard to report.

Then there is short term vs long term gains.

Any advise would be appreciated.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Fear/Greed indicator at low - bottom in? on: June 22, 2021, 06:38:50 PM

Go down the page to the chart and click on "max".  You will see that the current reading of 10 is about as low as it can go.

I would say from looking at the chart; a reading above 35 is a buy signal.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The Graph GRT - the Google of blockchain - your thoughts on: June 10, 2021, 02:45:55 AM
I don't see anyone mention this coin.  I can't find any other coins doing what GRT.  Have you seen any?

What are your thoughts?

"is a decentralized and open-source indexing protocol for blockchain data, Wang explained. It is not as established just yet, but is called the "Google of Blockchains" by its advocates since the platform can be utilized to search for any data through simple queries."
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Are Airdrops and Bounties worth the work? on: June 06, 2021, 03:56:45 PM
I'm learning a lot here about how people here invest and that tells me a bit about the market in general.

I was wondering if Airdrops and Bounties worth the effort.
According to this article you need several wallets.
Then you have to find out about the drops, do somethings to get them (e.g. follow the coin on social media).  And there might be other steps I don't know about.

Coinbase is running a Dodgecoin sweepstakes.  You have to buy or sell $100. of Dodgecoin to enter.  That is sasy.

I'm not sure if Airdrops and Bounties are worth the work.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What are your thoughts onf VeChain VET on: June 05, 2021, 03:50:19 PM
What are your thoughts on VET?  I'm thinking of buying but I am very unsure about it.

Market Cap #20

Good Concept
VeChain is a blockchain platform designed to enhance supply chain management and business processes. Its goal is to streamline these processes and information flow for complex supply chains through the use of distributed ledger technology (DLT).

Partnerships - Unsure myself if enough


I'm unsure about this one.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Positive info on ALT Coins - above 200 day moving average on: June 04, 2021, 11:28:15 PM
Below are the coins I own, only Bitcoin is below the 200 day simple moving average and holding above it.
This is good news.  I think the worst is behind us.  The weekend is usually a bit down, so don't be concerned.

Bitcoin Cash
9  Other / Off-topic / Thank you Elon - you were good for me but glad you are gone now, bottom in! on: June 04, 2021, 07:31:18 PM
When I invest in BTC and other coins I use limit orders and ladder the buy price.

I woke up this morning and saw I bought a lot at some good prices - some under $36,000

The I find out Elon has broken up with BTC with a tweet.

Well, thanks Elon you allowed me to get some good prices and now that you are gone, it is a signal to me the bottom is in.

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / "Buy when there's blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own." on: May 29, 2021, 06:21:51 PM
Baron Rothschild, an 18th-century British nobleman and member of the Rothschild banking family, is credited with saying that "the time to buy is when there's blood in the streets." He should know. Rothschild made a fortune buying in the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon.

Hard to do but, I'm doing it.  My crypto portfolio is down greatly.

12  Economy / Speculation / 200 Day Simple MA tells the story on: May 22, 2021, 03:38:55 PM

The 200 day simple MA tells the story.

From the chart you can see that there were 2 times in the past when price went below the 200 day SMA

Feb 18 to April 19

Nov 19 to Apri 20

The third time is now.  You can see how far away price has gotten away from the 200 day SMA recently gotten away from it.

I and others can not tell you where price will go from here.  But, if we stay in the $35 - $40 area for awhile, I think the bottom is in.

13  Economy / Speculation / Watch the 200MA For Good News - Risk Stocks on: May 19, 2021, 02:35:45 PM
I looked at the chart for the crypto I own and they all are above the 200ma except for BTC.

The 200 day ma for crypto is $39,800.  If it closes (NYT 4pm) at or above that number it could be the base beginning.

The risk is the stock market.  If, stock continue to decline that could cause some to sell stocks and crypto.

Also, there might be margin calls.
14  Other / Meta / Is there a way to get notified when I log in if someone quotes me in a thread? on: May 18, 2021, 12:51:37 AM
That's the question.
15  Economy / Speculation / By Friday 5/21 we might be thanking Elon! on: May 16, 2021, 09:32:48 PM
We might be thanking Elon by Friday.

Looking across all the cryptos there were many that went up too far too fast e.g. ETH, BCH

Elon has taken that froth out of the market.  And, possibly, put crypto on a slower, steadier, upward path.

To see if that is true we need to ride out this week.

MoneyGram has teamed up with cryptocurrency exchange Coinme on a feature that lets people buy crypto with cash or withdraw it from brick-and-mortar locations in the U.S.

Google it.  I can't post the CNBC link.

18  Other / Off-topic / Elon's star is fading. People will be asking who he was in a couple of years. on: May 14, 2021, 10:00:34 PM
I think it is time to stop thinking Elon is some sort of god.  

Tesla sales are down. Google it, the link I posted didn't work.

Tesla share price is down.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Where do you get your news about Crypto? on: May 13, 2021, 04:11:15 PM
I've been reading CoinDesk and CoinTelegraph, but those are general news sites in my opinion.  There isn't a lot of news about the smaller coins.

What sites do you read?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Curve - CRV Your thoughts - It's up on Elon's Tweet. on: May 13, 2021, 02:13:24 AM
I was looking at all crypto to see if they all sold off.

There were two that were up AAVE an CRV.

I know nothing about CRV.  I've read what I could find on the net.

 Would it be a good speculative investment?  As I write this it is trading at $4.07.

Does it have a future?
