The technology and use case for Monero is so stealthy, didn't even know i was mining it... Embarrassed

I was expecting a bottom of $5700.  Instead we got $6100 and a bounce.  And volume should be dropping but seems to be slightly rising on average.   We should rally in October - December but maybe we are early.  Bullish.

Do you think the impending news on the 30th of September will dampen any October rally, if it turns out rejected or delayed? Or do you think that this is already priced in?

I know you aren't asking me but I suspect at this point a no vote is absolutely priced in. So if there is a no expect little to no action but if there is a yes...

At age 16, he had a falling out with his father over a property dispute concerning the Ford Mustang. His deeply religious parents did not approve of the purchase and his father attempted to sell the car by placing an advertisement in a local Newspaper. Roger responded by calling the police who threatened to arrest him if he didnít withdraw the ad. This dispute led to Roger moving out of the family house. He then attended a community college in Cupertino, California called De Anza College for a year before dropping out. After dropping out of college, Roger elected to pursue a number of small business interests.

Oh I don't know dude, how about a medium of exchange?

Some days I wonder if "store of value" is what I signed up for when I started working with Bitcoin. The idea at the time was to be able to collect payments and buy stuff using something other than Paypal and dollars.

Now.... Still use it for that, but it's more complicated.

Every time I try to interface with the legacy banking system I remember why I bought bitcoin. It's always such a pain in the ass in some way, it NEVER fails.

Another great news! The Lightning Network has surpassed 100 BTC capacity again. The most interesting thing is that SatoshiLabs, which is the company behind TREZOR, has created their own node whose capacity is over 12 BTC! That's more than 10% of the overall network capacity. I would like to know if they are going to accept Lightning Network payments for their devices anytime soon.

Now that's a feature that would cause me to actually upgrade my trezor one.

Tell me about it: I had to drill a small hole in my head and do a micro-lobotomy so I wouldn't remember where I left my bitcoins :-)

Does anyone know if anyone has ever time locked a substantial chunk of bitcoin for a decade or more? People in 2010 would be glad they had, perhaps each any every one of us would be glad if we did right now for the same reasons.

The possibility exists that 1 billion in bitcoin could black-swan dive into Monero tomorrow. It doesn't matter, however, it's bullish for Monero regardless.

I can't imagine being someone sitting on a pile of silk road bitcoins. That would terrify me. Anyone with any sense would be moving that into monero while they can still transfer them to an exchange at all.

I would be careful with statements like this, but in theory that is right. If you control the whole network (sybill attack) you still can check the bytes traveling from A to B. Basically this is an "added value" over travelling via clearnet with added security. The developments is very good of the Monero community and i do believe that it doesn't need PR like other shitcoins around, hence it gives it's value and strength in it's beeing  Grin

Nice thing is though, by bundling it with a popular crypto currency wallet you could end up with so many more nodes than you ever could with tor or i2p.

Yeeeaaaaahhhh, but i think the fork will not help the I2P network per sť  Wink

Yea but it was bound to happen. It would be such a one sided deal for us to be routing their much larger data in exchange for them routing our puny little transaction data. Having it all be transaction data will make it all nice and uniform, which will make traffic analysis much harder, and it will keep it lean so that ruing a kovri node is no more onerous than it needs to be. It is a shame in a way but what'cha gonna' do?

Interesting thoughts, but "A plausible reason that high IQ people tend to favor feminism (and the socialism which supports it) " - where does this data comes from?
I doubt this)
Moreover Dark Englightment as intellectual movement (if it might be called so) is definitely anti-socialist


I believe it is what is referred to as "neo-reactionary".

So,
SEC rejected 9 ETF-Proposals 4 hours ago.
https://www.coindesk.com/sec-rejects-7-bitcoin-etf-proposals/
So far no reaction in bitcoin price. (Everybody sleeping?)
Hopefully it stays above 5800. Hardly anybody seems to believe that anymore.

Yea wow. That pull back was nothing considering. Theories about what that means WOs? The "everyone's just asleep" explanation seems unconvincing.

Hi;

I really don't understand Monero community. This project is not providing 100% privacy like Verge... but they are still chasing.

Kind reagards

I wish they had troll points like merit points. That one is pretty good. Cheesy
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: August 22, 2018, 10:26:21 PM
Are there any other ETFs waiting for approval or is this the lot?

The most important ETF (CBOE + VanEck SolidX) will be on September 30th

Supposedly this one is the only one that ever really had a real shot at passing and it is very likely to.

They probably think the github activity is completely sufficient source of a new information for the whole community.

Maybe it is? This isn't a price pumping project as I understand it.

This post is a quick proof reading and critique as per the request of OP.

It has no impact on the Bitcoin network.
Technically I mean if it reduces the total number of on chain transactions this is an impact on the bitcoin network. I understand what you mean but perhaps this sentence could be more clear. Something like "once a lightning channel has been established transactions within said channel do not impact the bitcoin blockchain". Or something like that. Not trying to write it for you, just explaining what I mean.

To start using the Lightning Network you have to use a compatible software.

To start using the Lightning Network you have to use a compatible software. Two people establish a payment channel by locking up funds in a multi-signature address which needs both signatures to spend from it. Payment channel can be used as long as both participants agree to cooperate. One can close the channel even if the other participant is offline but it won't happen instantly in that case.
I would change wording and the order a bit here.

To start using the Lightning Network you have to use a compatible software. Two people may establish a payment channel by locking up funds in a multi-signature address which needs both signatures to spend from it. This transaction is time locked so that the funds will be automatically dispersed in the event that one of the parties becomes uncooperative. Payment channel can be used as long as both participants agree to cooperate remain cooperative. One can close the channel even if the other participant is offline but it won't happen instantly in that case.


Great post. Thanks for being a continued asset to the community. +merit

"feels like he has to fake a personality for the job"
the exact reason why I always preferred laborer jobs to office jobs, not many understood among my family and friends.

when i was a laborer, i noticed no one faked anything, we were all just ourselves. once i graduated to office jobs, thats when i noticed the fakers.

 What a load of shit.  I was also a labourer and there were guys who "forgot their wallet" when it was their turn to bring the coffee which we all looked forward to on the colder days.  Then there were the guys who lost their license for a DUI and tried to hide it as long as they could while sponging rides from the others under the guise of card trouble, wife needs a car I'm getting a bike soon etc...  Jesus.  There was tons of false bravado and comparisons cars/bikes/tattoos and who slept with the most women.  People are people; it's just that the games get headier in an office environment where belching and farting aren't legitimate comebacks anymore.  Also, you'd probably get fired for whistling at each woman (or man) that happened by.  I couldn't afford to waste my hard-earned money on a Harley and tattoos so I was forced into the office for a while (tech stuff - mostly sealants and paint) and finally settled into a production plant environment where there are people of all types and we get diversity training so we can all get along.


edit: Almost forgot, I also worked as a farmhand on a fruit farm (pay was heavily gov't subsidized).  We weren't allowed to talk while pulling weeds and rocks from the field so head games were at an absolute minimum.  You got a couple of warnings for talking and then they just sent you home.


guess i was just lucky then. it was construction, we all pulled out weight and got along great, and partied a lot outside of work.

my office gigs however.. many backstabbers there.

I think it's a different kind of disingenuousness. Laborers are boastful, prone to exaggeration, the proverbial fish that gets bigger with each retelling. The lies are designed to elevate ones self. In the office the lies are designed to tear others down. Not all lies are created equal.
