Everything is possible nowadays Cheesy

True ! Tongue

No.  It is not possible to create or destroy energy.  It is not possible to survive naked in space.  It is not possible for one person to eat the entire world's supply of chocolate.

...

And apparently, it's not possible to read the bitcoin forums without drowning in hyperbole.

Honest question, please answer to the best of your knowledge OP:

With which volume was this amway thing (never heard of it, probably an American thing) trading at its peak?

From my memory, i think Amway at its peak was one of the largest if not the largest privately held company in the US. its turnover was well into the billions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amway

In 2012, their annual revenue was $11.3B.

Too big a risk in a socialist utopia.

LOL

I'm not sure you know what socialist means.  Also, that utopia literally means "no place".

The chart reminds me of the way a ball bounces down stairs. Absent news good enough to counter the btcchina shutdown, why it is reasonable to expect 750 tomorrow?

He's not suggesting it will happen. He is suggesting what may happen next if it does happen.

Shouldn't VPN, and all the other anonymity layers provide enough protection for them from LE ?  Also seems to me International LE is spending too much time on shutting down online marketplaces when there are larger problems out there.

Anyways i don't think this will have much impact as it doesn't seem to be a complete shutdown, it's just one of the moderators that got arrested.

The CIA runs much of the top tiers of the drug business.  They don't like the idea of losing control of it.

Much smaller time scale, and more bearish, but we'll see how this plays out.  5 up is trying to make a comeback, but 5 down hasn't quite given up yet.

Never trust a proudhon.

Price can't go much below USD$200 now without starting to squeeze margins on a large portion of miners. The next wave of input cost pressure should hit at around 50-100,000,000,000 difficulty, just as it helped kick off the price rise after the 100-200,000,000 level. As long as we get back to business as usual after a few more bouts of panic selling, that is.

War is on, got popcorn?

2011->GPU saturation, available now
Difficulty even declined for several adjustment periods.

April 2013->ASIC adoption beginnings
Difficulty continued to climb until price caught back up.

Now->ASIC nearing saturation?  Available now.

Daily Goomboos should have sold around $700.  Not bad for a few hours, not that Goomboos care for quick profits.

Hey, I've had a net worth above 0 for about 2 months now.  I know what you mean.

In case anyone has forgotten, OP is against bitcoin for political/social reasons. His/Her views are, in a word, adolescent:


...Heterosexual, middle class or higher white males are disproportionally represented in the demographics of bitcoin users. Bitcoin only serves to uphold the current kyriarchal socioeconomic structures by making sure the privileged become more privileged.



Edit: ...and just noticed this gem, too...lol:

...
The people behind bitcoin needs to tie it's value to the dollar if they ever want it to take off. One coin gets you one dollar, simple.


</thread>

Sounds like he's looking an opportunity to become privileged in the face and rejecting it because "there are too many privileged people over there".

@OP
Bitcoin belongs to nobody.  Anybody can acquire them.  Anybody can spend them.  Nobody can stop them as long as they have someone who wants to trade with them.  If you have a problem with the makeup of the current community, invade.  You and the people you like are more than welcome.  Bitcoin belongs to everybody, and while trolls may troll, they can't do shit to take away the power that bitcoin gives you.

Or you could spare your nerves and quit trying to trade without knowing how.  The only way to learn is to make costly mistakes, so sometimes it is best to just be an investor if you haven't already learned the art.

Got it open.  All fans were working.  Removed thermal pads and applied paste.  Hashing at 37GH/s now, which is better, but still not what it should be.  Software is now recognizing it as a BAS with 16 cores.

I agree on this. I got my  coins at 100 USD and saw them grow to 1200 USD so I am a winner here.
People panic selling because they bought at 1000 USD each coin and dont know if they will loose it all
should not got the coins in the first place.


It is frustrating to me when I see comments like this one.  Yes, congratulations, you were an early adopter who made money.  However, if everyone since then loses money, Bitcoin is done, finished.


Have some patience dude.  Lack of patience is why you are nervous now.  Just walk away for 6 months before you do something stupid like sell below where you bought.

Bitcoin is far from done, but new users are jittery.  We always have to test the nerves of the new holders before we can continue up.  Many fail the test.  Temperament is key in markets.
