What i am always wonderin, when i read that you guys sell small amounts, i think: why?

At least in my history of trading, i always sold low and bought in high. So in the end i had less BTC. What makes you so confident to re-enter at a lower level? Or are you just that bitcoin rich, that it doesn't matter for your stash? Cheesy

The source as I understand it is SVT, Swedish television website, it says so in the text.

" Iíve been getting most of my statistics from SVT, the Swedish public broadcaster. They had been providing data on the share with antibodies in Stockholm up to a month or two back, when that information discretely disappeared from their website. I wonder why."

So after the data "vanished" (show me an archive.org link first, that is was there in the first place. Maybe it was just never there and he just claims it was "removed"?) he only then started to make the data up? Cheesy

Do it yourself, I'm not chasing your strawman.

I think, that's what we try to tell you: It's not your job, to find the sources that guy uses. It's his fucking job. As long he doesn't deliver, i don't care for his website. Easy as this. It's science, bitch! Wink

With all these big institutions finally onboarding, i get some kind of a sad feeling...maybe we have to say goodbye to -80% bear markets. I would miss them!

Accumulating in these price ranges just doesn't feel the same anymore. A Sat here, a Sat there... Cheesy

Do what you can, and surely a lot of retail is going to be front run by institutional investors in the upcoming times because a lot of retail do not understand the value of bitcoin, so if you are accumulating sats, even at these prices, you are likely ahead of the vast majority of the population.

Don't get me wrong in regards to the fairness of bitcoin as an investment in regards to retail.  The truth of the matter remains that retail has had around 10 years or so to front run institutional investors, and ONLY a small portion of the population either recognized such opportunity and/or took advantage of such opportunity.  Cannot really blame anyone in this regard in general ways because sometimes regular peeps are just NOT in a position to invest, to study investments or to NOT get mislead by a decent amount of misinformation that ends up discouraging them from researching and/or starting some kind of actual investment strategy, even if quite modest - such as $10 per week or something like that.

From time to time, it can be good to look at where we are at in regards to our $10 per week over the past 7 years.

Yes, we see that we would have invested $3,660 but we would have accumulated nearly 4.5 BTC, so even modest investment plans can play out quite well in terms of establishing a decent stash - but surely the overall point remains that if institutional investors are getting all hot and bothered about BTC right now in terms of accumulating BTC before others can get into the game, then ONLY those regular investors (retail) who are willing to establish a plan and to get in now are going to have some kind of possibility of having decently low costs of BTC accumulation when we are looking 10 years down the road and everyone is figuring out what their BTC cost basis is as compared to the then BTC price.

Don't get me wrong. My first purchase was back in 2011. But i miss the days when buying bitcoin really meant buying a bitcoin. And not just "0.002BTC".

And since i am really bad at trading, my only chance to really gain substantially more was to sell somewhere in the upper bubble territory and just wait 1.5 years. But i'm not that sure anymore, that we will see these bear markets again when Tesla, Apple and Microsoft just try to buy it all.

The only thing left in this loophole then is probably the 2day-settlement process. Since the stock is "instantly" transfered to you but settlements takes place 2 days later, there may be a serious discrepancy between at which price you "thought" you bought and it which price the stock actually gets settled. So if this goes wildly against the broker/clearing house they may refuse to settle.

But strictly speaking this would not sell your stock, this would just rewind your trade (which for the end user is still bad, but nobody robbed you in this situation. At least if you look at it like a lawyer would Cheesy)

As far as i have understood it: Robinhood is ONLY giving you a margin account. So they are allowed to liquidate your margin long position, if the prices moves against you.

The interesting part of these "Neobrokers" is just this conclusion: You never buy stocks there.

It's a surprising powerfull dip today. Anything about Tether? Or the end of Rippel-Trading on Bitstamp?

It's just a buying opportunity Smiley

Of course it is. But still i always wonder, why people sell bitcoin in the first place Cheesy

I really like and encourage critical thinking. But starting your "critical thinking" process by simply denying a election result is not my understanding of "critical thinking" it's more like a state of denial. There are people who simply claim there is no pandemic because there are no viruses in the first place. Thats not "critical thinking" that's just a straightforward lie. And this stuff somehow has to be controlled in the future. Otherwise the whole internet idea collapses in itself, because the people are not able to cope with the "information" aka "lies" they read.

//But i obligate to go back to the bitcoin price movement, instead of arguing over the internet. Cheesy

As free people, we all have the right to think whatever we want and believe whatever we choose to, including denial. There is nothing illegal about choosing to believe something that is seen as false by 99% of the rest. When something truly sinister happens in the world, you'll be thankful for these overly suspicious conspiracy theory believers/non-believers.

Nothing has to be "controlled". We succeeded in surviving as a species for millions of years just fine without any control. In fact, religious control set us back a couple thousand years. That should be enough of a lesson right there to stop the idea of controlling anything beyond setting clear laws and enforcing them. Just punish those who break the law and ignore the voices you don't agree with.

If enough people really get behind an idea or a person, there is probably some truth behind what they believe. Nothing in life is black or white. Everything is a shade of gray. What you have to ask is "why" so many people like Trump. Do you really believe they are all mentally ill? Critical thinking would be trying to understand what people see in Trump, not saying we must control something so people don't end up liking a guy like Trump.

I just don't like the idea of "endless critical thinking without limitation because i can always go MORE critical". So if Trump is not the problem, suddenly the senate is. If the senate is not, than what is next? It's just a loophole without an end. Just like an 6 year old who found out, he can rule over his parents by just going on with "and why?".

I like the idea of provable and repeatable experiments. I like the work of people falsify flatearth theories with plain physics ANYBODY can re-test. I don't like endless "i won, trust me" bullshit. Don't care from which side. Either bring a proof i can challenge or gtfo.

That's the nice thing about bitcoin. I don't have to trust my bank that my funds are safe. I can mathematically proof they are safe and they are there. No discussion possible. Either you have the private key or not. End of story.

And i don't like to see more and more people depart into this abyss of endless critical thinking based on just nothing.

Overall, I find the orange man laughable, but at the same time i have no issue taking his side on censorship and being against big tech colluding to blacklist Parler. Guess i'm the minority that's able to think across the made up lines

that is true. I don't like the development where big tech companies decide which content and which ideologies are displayed and which are not.

But at the same time, I think that something has to be done about the spreading of incitement and untruths.

You can't have it both ways. People need to think for themselves. You can't have truth or thought police. This path leads to the dark side.

Of course you can't have truth police. But simply stating over and over again, that i am the leader of the world, therefore i should be seated in the white house just does nothing to me. And exactly that way it should be. But we have seen it different. And we need to find ways in order to cope with this madness.

Back in the days, the "crazy guy" in a bar was just that: a crazy guy in a bar. But today those crazy guys get millions of listeners and "self thinkers" and suddenly this crazy guy is the leader of something. And that is bad.

Just blocking stuff will not solve the issue. I still believe in education. But as a process it seems to be to slow, to keep up with the tech development.

Sorry but Trump was never a crazy guy in a bar. He even stated in the 80s on Oprah he would consider running for president. One COULD argue that some of his views are old fashioned or from an era gone by, I would agree with some of that.

There have been pretty crazy people leading countries in the world over the last 100 years. None of them I would say are/were typical crazy guys in a bar. Many were calculated and quite well educated people.

Education I would say is a false prevention method if you are worried about crazy leaders, since it is usually a government that is in control of education systems.

The spread of information around the world is perhaps the one thing that prevents too much inward looking and allows for critical thinking by masses and thus prevents dictators arising. Consider we have seen a hell of lot less dictators over the last 70 years.
One only has to look at countries where information is throttled to see where dictators or even religion still rule.

What big tech companies are doing isn't admirable at all considering all that.

It is better that tech companies censor rather than governments themselves. But when large tech companies are in control of information, become an extension of a particular political party or ideology and these all operate in unison because they are cowards I would say that is pretty dangerous too.

I really like and encourage critical thinking. But starting your "critical thinking" process by simply denying a election result is not my understanding of "critical thinking" it's more like a state of denial. There are people who simply claim there is no pandemic because there are no viruses in the first place. Thats not "critical thinking" that's just a straightforward lie.
