This DAO thing is a total pyramid that is going to cause all kinds of crap to go flying in cryptocurrencies when it it blows up.

Sneaky Gavin Wood is quietly leaving out the side door before someone screams FIRE and the whole CONfidence game implodes.

"... until computers are built from something other than matter and occupy something other than space".

Qbits exploit weird quantum effects like one atom being able to be in two places at the same time. The qbits in a quantum computer occupy something strange that might be considered "other than space". Existing in two places at the same time is a departure from the standard three dimensions of space we all know.

Photons, which can be used for qubits, are massless particles and have no volume. Hence, I assume, where the "built from something other than matter and occupy something other than space" comes from. However, you can implement quantum computers with particles which do have mass and volume, so his point is invalid.

The argument is based on minimum amount of energy required to flip a bit, quantum computers would effectively be violating Second Law of Thermodynamics because of Landauer's principle ... also known as the Landauer limit.

shorts capitulating ... multiple failed sell down attempts are getting too costly, they'll retreat higher shortly.

So less than 10k blocks ~60 days until halving reward. Here's anothers thoughts.

At this point, miners will be maximally hoarding coins in expectation of having to supplement their decreased btc income post-halving with saved coins. On this assumption miners will only be releasing those coins that they absolutely need to for covering exactly mining expenses, what does this mean? This means that the current actual btc issuance rate onto the market is very close to the cost of production. Further, let's assume that bitcoin pricing is being set at the margin by these fresh coins such that average cost of production is now then reflected very close to current market price. Which is backed up by the lack of success shorts are having bashing down prices very much at all, since it is hard up against the floor of production costs already.

But here's the kicker, if cost of production is being reflected as ~$450 and rising, I'd suggest that by the time halving arrives, and if shorts keep bashing price down such that there is no excess speculation baked in, then price will double within 6 months after halving. So $500-600 by halving and rising to at least twice that 6-12 months after halving is possible under this scenario.

Some of this was good for bitcoin to go through some of this, and to come out stronger, and hopefully recognizing various potential coupe attempts without going along with the various bullshit fakeries.

Wow that looks like a really good chart right? Looks like the price has been 'breaking out' for over a month as it nudges closer and closer against resistance. Sentiments have been tremendously universally bullish for months as bitcoin makes headlines all over the news and the chart looks just like 2012 right before the 2012 halving. Every thread on the forum is positive and predicts the level of the next rise. Meanwhile, CHINA is still the market leader. What could go wrong, right? The BFX order book bids are paper thin and BFX longs are maxxed out at 32M. Each time this margin level was reached in the past was when bulls were buying in to what looked like a big breakout (such as in July 2014) but inflected into the next decline instead. I'd say there is a distinctive chance of another decline to the 300s before any meaningful rise. I'm not betting anything on that though.

Hey Mat ... whacha up to?

... feel like losing some more money tonight?

No thanks. I think I will stick to winning money. Your money, that is.

hehehe, you wish ... you're either brave or a fool ... whichever it's cool, better than the hordes of disingenuous that infest this place.

ready for some whaling?



You are assuming I have a Bitcoin position at the moment.

I don't.

that's the same as being out of bitcoin, i.e. long fiat/ short bitcoin.

You're in the game whether you like it or not. There is no such thing as 'real money', only assets that you either in or out of ...

Chinese miners are divided into 3 or 4 camps, they are not united, nothing to worry about.

No one is controlling bitcoin.

The West is just not competing hard enough because of all the bullshit government rules oppressing bitcoin, AML/KYC, Bitlicense, ECB directives, UK & NY banks, Western multinational banks are all conspiring to keep bitcoin down to protect their weak, broken industries that cannot compete on an even field. However, what they are doing is handing the future lead of value information technology to the East. Incredibly, a communist totalitarian China is more competitive in the realm of financial innovation than the supposedly free-market liberal democracies of the West ... how ironic (but crazy) world that we live in today.

If the West wants to lead in bitcoin, and it is the future of currencies, then it needs to leave the old guard behind. Bitcoin is a gift of technology and if the West is too stupid to receive it with open arms, then it probably does not deserve that gift.

Can't they bypass USA regulatory resistance and go to the UK -or elsewhere- to launch the ETF?

If an ETF wants to do business with customers in the USA it has to go through the USA regulatory procedure. There were offshore internet gambling sites that thought they could do business with customers in the USA without fear of legal action from the USA government. Most of them eventually got taken down by the USA government, and the owners were prosecuted.

The US govvy 'protects' its tax cattle herd very jealously, the more than 4000 citizens per annum trying to leave have to dump their passports http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/08/news/americans-citizenship-renunciation/index.html and have to pay huge amounts of money and now IRS is actively stopping them from leaving by removing passports http://www.naturalnews.com/052138_IRS_US_passports_travel_restrictions.html
