CCMF!



Train has left the station, some quick stops, but better get on fast or you miss it (FOMO max!).

Nice 5.3k BTC volume finger on Binance (15 minute view).

If they paid for the electricity and kept everything else legal, and mining was profitable, they could have kept mining with no authorities bothering them for a long time. Eventually, the power company will inspect places that have very high usage to find out what's going on, even if they were being paid accordingly.

I assume there has to be a law in Malaysia making Bitcoin mining equipment itself illegal, because it does not makes sense for the police to destroy legal mining equipment due to stealing electricity.

I assume this is fake as far as "proof of destruction" goes, but you never really know with China.



A bit like when a big burn up of tons of captured illegal drugs is staged for the press cameras.
While the majority of the haul is quietly moved to the markets or sold back to the cartel.



It’s not China, it’s Malaysia:

Malaysia destroys an array of mining equipment

Thanks for clearing that up. Wow, watched the video linked in that article, what a waste!

Quote
According to a Malaysian news portal, The Star, a total of crypto mining machines worth $1.26 million were destroyed.

Note to self: Rig the mining equipment with pressure sensitive explosives.

Maybe Satoshi doesn't care about material wealth. Maybe for him it's all about contributing to the world. Maybe he has decided to "burn" those million coins, as a donation to all of us. You may think such things never happen, but they do.

Déjà vu Gavin Andresen's Bitcoin Faucet.

I see the price met mid $31,000’s. Bit of a dead cat bounce to now meet $32,742. It’s only a matter of time now until new lows are met. Sell everything now before it goes to $20,000. You won’t always have a friendly guy advising you to save your net worth. It’s not too late so get out when you can before the long, cold bear market.

C'mon Billy, this is no time to get bearish on us.

We can't stop now. This is bat country.



Bat country is nothing compared to Bazooko Circus, it's going to get crazier than this, imagine when upwards doesn't really mean anything.

Many good movie suggestions lately, thanks for posting, will watch them later.
Right now started watching the rest of "the expanse". Only watched four episodes before and then I had other things to do.

But yesterday I watched this little gem from 1941 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfgUW16drxk "Stridsvagnsanfall" ("tank attack").
It's a Swedish propaganda/information film from WW2 showing an attack to breach the enemy lines and securing the area.
No subtitles unfortunately, but in short he says "the enemy lines will be hit by artillery to kill and shock the enemy to inaction, then the infantry will break through the breach and and secure it, a smoke screen on both sides will protect the tanks from sight as the drive through and clean up behind enemy lines. They will then stop at the beginning of the woods in hedgehog formation for defense and await the infantry. When the infantry catches up and have secured the area, the tanks refuel, rearm and move on to new missions."

Some rare footage of tanks and infantry transport vehicles from that era.
We see strv m/40 (Landsverk L-60-S) and 37 mm pvkan m/38 (Bofors towed AT gun) and German made Tempo Vidal cars, a weird car with two engines, one in the front for the front wheels and one in the back for the rear wheels, this gave it a weird but functional four wheel drive.

Strv m/40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnY_78fU95U

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I0vbAu7Jzg

Tempo Vidal geländewagen https://youtu.be/Nua6zt84hlM?t=345

Enjoy.

Edit. The march is Skaraborgs Regementes Marsch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpQx0BpXNiY

We also see the B-force ("enemy") using double decker dive bombers.

I think you forgot one:

You know what's weird?

Bitcointalk is blocked in China, but bitcoin.org isn't.

https://www.comparitech.com/privacy-security-tools/blockedinchina/

Kinda weird.

I checked github.com, also blocked, so anything related to Bitcoin development it seems.

But why bitcoincore.org is accessible? May be they don’t know about it yet? Or forgot to block it?

“https://bitcoincore.org/en/download/
This URL appears to be accessible from mainland China.

Yes,  doesn't make sense.

EU thinking of banning PoW





Idiots, it's like asking for a ban on vaccines when a pandemic is taking off.

Luckily I don't think there is enough time for that proposal to become law before the Euro as a currency will reach hyperinflation, by that time the only thing saving the train wreck economy is Bitcoin.

The first Brit to get vaccinated
...
dead within six months.

The first Canadian to get vaccinated
...
dead within six months

These cases are just noise. Isolated cases. If my neighbor wins the National Lottery, it doesn't mean everyone will win. But that's what people see, and they go and gamble their money away.

Currently, there are more than 1,500,000,000 fully vaccinated people (more than 3,000,000,000 doses administered) worldwide. Even if there are 1000 deaths that are provably caused by the vaccines themselves and no other illnesses, this is still a near-zero mortality rate (0.000067% to be precise).

Problem is, out of the 1,500,000,000 vaccinations, the mass media will say nothing about the 1,499,999,000 people who are healthy and protected, but they will be screaming 27/4 about the 1000 deaths.

If all vaccinated people die 6 months after getting the vaccine, there will be nearly a billion deaths by the end of the year. Not a long way away. We'll see...

It's comically dramatic, and borderline dark satire when friends of the dead recommend vaccination as a final tribute.



Mainstream media should focus on getting facts across, but they always end up going for the drama.

20 Things I've Learned (Or Had Confirmed) About Humanity During The 'Pandemic' (THREAD):

1/ Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right.
2/ At least 20% of the population has strong authoritarian tendencies, which will emerge under the right conditions.
3/ Fear of death is only rivalled by the fear of social disapproval. The latter could be stronger.
4/ Propaganda is just as effective in the modern day as it was 100 years ago. Access to limitless information has not made the average person any wiser.
5/ Anything and everything can and will be politicised by the media, government, and those who trust them.
6/ Many politicians and large corporations will gladly sacrifice human lives if it is conducive to their political and financial aspirations.
7/ Most people believe the government acts in the best interests of the people. Even many who are vocal critics of the government.
8/ Once they have made up their mind, most people would rather to commit to being wrong, than admit they were wrong.
9/ Humans can be trained and conditioned quickly and relatively easily to significantly alter their behaviours - for better or worse.
10/ When sufficiently frightened, most people will not only accept authoritarianism, but demand it.
11/ People who are dismissed as 'conspiracy theorists' are often well researched and simply ahead of the mainstream narrative.
12/ Most people value safety and security more than freedom and liberty, even if said 'safety' is merely an illusion.
13/ Hedonic adaptation occurs in both directions, and once inertia sets in, it is difficult to get people back to 'normal'.
14/ A significant % of people thoroughly enjoy being subjugated.
15/ 'The Science' has evolved into a secular pseudo-religion for millions of people in the West. This religion has little to do with science itself.
16/ Most people care more about looking like they are doing the right thing, rather than actually doing the right thing.
17/ Politics, the media, science, and the healthcare industries are all corrupt, to varying degrees. Scientists and doctors can be bought as easily as politicians.
18/ If you make people comfortable enough, they will not revolt. You can keep millions docile as you strip their rights, by giving them money, food, and entertainment.
19/ Modern people are overly complacent and lack vigilance when it comes to defending their own freedoms from government overreach.
20/ It's easier to fool a person than to convince them that they have been fooled.
Bonus thought:

21/ Most people are fairly compassionate and have good intentions (this is good)

Here's hoping "21/" can carry the rest (1-20), with the help from Bitcoin we might just pull it off (I'm a sucker for happy endings).

 2/ it's much more than 20%

And 2/  tends to sit well with the far left and the far right.  I know plenty in both of those camps.

 They have strong wish to control people and to be the "boss"

Whether they are waving a rainbow flag or a USA flag or a BLM flag or a BlueLM flag.

Plus the fucking media loves the turn the pot.

If only people could step back from the extreme and meet at the middle, but ah that's a different world then this one.

Thus the reason why Libertarian-ism, the most sane compromise of all the political & social positions, has been stomped right into the ground and left for dead.

Good job, Deep State.

20/21 observations sadly are correct.
1/21 observations happily are correct.

You're not quite a complete cynic yet though, give it some time.

I look at this forum thread and see people from many different backgrounds, different countries, different opinions, and sometimes we argue a bit...Still, we share common ground, most of us want to see Bitcoin succeed... This gives me hope that "21/" will be enough common ground to take the whole world through this shit without apocalypse...

On Friday (02.07.2021) we launched an attack on MSP providers. More than a million systems were infected. If anyone wants to negotiate about universal decryptor – our price is 70 000 000$ in BTC and we will publish publicly decryptor that decrypts files of all victims, so everyone will be able to recover from attack in less than an hour. If you are interested in such deal – contact us using victims “readme” file instructions.

The PR is not great, but could potentially affect BTC rate if paid.

If you don't celebrate the 4th July just renounce your citizenship, you are not worthy of your country.

Does that include Native Americans and foreigners? Wink

Proudly considering myself a man without a country (took a long time to get there unfortunately).

Free country, do and think you what you want. Just my feelings on the subject.

To celebrate independence from Britain in 1776, I'll be enjoying a BBQ later with family.

Everyone have a great day including modrobert.

Thanks, you too, BBQ sounds great, best steak I had so far was in USA.

Well, as holder of an (empty) Binance account, I’m not happy receiving unsolicited reset password emails while learning that it is happening all over the board. Something is not right.

No keys, not your coins.

Good point, and should be a constant reminder.
