Rayís newest article was in my reading list; nice write up while carefully avoiding the Bitcoin phenomenon.

Interesting: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-19/stalling-markets-last-time-happened-was-october-1929

Slowing demand but higher prices (currency debasement beneficial for cryptocurrencies)?

 Shocked Tongue

No Choo Choo, no fun. A dull and boringly stable period towards the halvening fits perfectly.

For all you know, Obyte could be at its lowest point with a massive multi year rally ahead. And you would be talking people out of it.

Alrighty guys, tomorrow i will buy my first 50Ä worth of Bitcoin. In what do you think should i invest afterwards ? Or should i invest into Altcoin first then when i increase my Portfolio i buy The King BTC?

...  Personally I'd stay away from altcoins.


Indeed, much too early to step into alts. Especially if this is new territory for you. Itís only for crazy gamblers willing to risk a sure loss for a tiny chance on a huge reward.

Is there a connection between BTC bullishness and the following topic: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-18/chinese-capital-outflows-spike-highest-10-months

[price analysis]

Enjoyed your post but Iím out of sMerits  Undecided

I also favour a scenario of increased price weakness in the medium term without the bullish scenario in the larger time frame suffering. The better the build up towards the halvening, the stronger the push towards new ATHs.

After the cold winter years of 2014-2015, nothing can phase me. Besides, my happiness is not tied to the price of Bitcoin. Results in better sleep too  Grin

We knew it was going to happen eventually but...

It is official now.

I donít see so many negative points. Instead, I see a lot of chances.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: EOS - Asynchronous Smart Contract Platform - (Dan Larimer of Bitshares/Steem) on: July 13, 2019, 01:24:25 PM
Price is a bit weak indeed but EOS at $1 would still be well priced. Holders of EOS need to consider that the big hype is probably yet to happen. All of this depends on finding a kipper dApp for EOS. In that respect, I have good hopes for in-game currency systems that game creators can seamlessly plug into. That could become something big.

    Market dominance is a shitty indicator [...]

    [...]

    • Technology has progressed, people studied and has progressed in the understanding of the cryptos and came to the right conclusion shitcoins are indeed...shitcoins. Shitcoins value proposition has since faced and now they are clearly revealed for what they have always been: (kind of elaborate) exit scams by fraudster to transfer your bitcoin in their wallets.
    • We are on the verge of an epochal bull run caused by institutional money on the brink on entering cryptocurrencies. Of course the main gateways for this to happen is Bitcoin. I can't see them diversifying their investment into other bitcoins in the near future both because lack of regulations, lack of liquidity and above all security and scrutiny on this coins.
    • The more Bitcoin performs versus shitcoins, the more the random investors will be keen on buying bitcoins and abstain to shift to shitcoins, because Bitcoin IS the asset performing. SO kind of self-fulfilling mechanism/shelling point where you don't want to convert your bitcoin into other assets

    What are your toughs?


    My toughs?  Wink

    1. I think more non-retail money (increasing constituent, now) seeks the safer bet, along with the liquidity of the largest player / market in crypto.
    2. The feedback loop.  As long as alts whither and dominance increases, it only reinforces the trend.  For now, at least.


    There is a tendency to call all coins other than Bitcoin 'shitcoins'. To me, it seems mostly like NPC herd behaviour  Roll Eyes

    I'd rather make a distinction between:
    • shitcoins
    • chance coins

    In my vocabulary, shitcoins are coins that serve no purpose, have no vision or (attempt to any) solution. We are in the process of saying goodbye to front_left_tooth_coin, not_solving_even_non_existing_problem_coin (Autorship, I am looking at you...), pump_and_dump_copy_paste_coin and all other projects that were stamped out of the ground and will be put back in that same ground soon. If anything of the numbers in Market cap is still representing shitcoins, it will be pressed out from it like a lemon. Good riddance.

    This is to be separate from chance coins. Projects that try to solve an existing problem or create new possibilities. High risk, many will fail, but the label 'shitcoin' would misrepresent these projects. And it would be very close minded to think that such new and innovative (but failure prone) projects won't be initiated in the future with only Bitcoin remaining. Perhaps in once sector (store of value) the competition will be very stiff, but there are many more aspects to cryptocurrency and DLT tech that are and will continue to be explored.

    Not meant as shilling and basically a random mentioning of some projects to color my thought of separating 'chance coins' from 'shitcoins'.

    • Ethereum: vehicle for the shitcoins that will deflate, but a programmable decentralised machine has something to it
    • EOS/TELOS: more centralised (in computing sense) but more powerful. I can imagine this grabbing a spot for dApps that do require accounts/management/high TPS
    • Nimiq: a payment solution with full blockchain capabilities, light weight (so some compromises on decentralisation) but excellent for small and fast payments. Nothing exciting in terms of standard POW blockchain, but it has something no crypto had: easy user experience.

    Again, I'm not mentioning these projects because I think they will 100% rule the world. I mention these as examples of how time, money and creativity seeks opportunies, time and time again. Just like we do not call all companies with venture capitalist investors 'shitcompanies', I won't call all cryptocurrency projects 'shitcoins'.

    'Shitcoins' and 'chance coins'. Remember this.

    Keep on quoting the bloke so that our ignore no work.

    In a tangential development...

    My in-flight reading lately had been 'Life After Google' by George Gilder. While not his most significant work, it is certainly his most timely. Gilder -- should you be unfamiliar with him -- is one of the world's foremost prognosticators of near-future technology and
    its subsequent effects upon society.

    Recommended, but that's not my point.


    I found life after Google very interesting but hard to read. Still havenít been able to subtract the 30s elevator pitch from this book. I really hope he will straighten his thought and presents this in a structured manner some day.

    I think people want to see proof of influence first.

    Announce.

    Execute.

    Proof.

    [...]

    You mean that i should push BTC to the public and then get paid for it after the push is done?


    • Go to a small (but exciting) project like www.nimiq.com (NIM)
    • Load up on coins
    • Get those 200,000+ eyeballs on that project
    • Profit

    The rally in NIM the next few weeks will prove how much influence you really have.

    Easy proof

    Or are you CW'ing on us?
