Coinbase has some good info:

As has been stated cold storage that you're moving to is best but chances are you'll be fine until your hardware wallet arrives.

Welcome back. When the swap will start?

which swap ? he did not develop any blockchain yet don't think it will be any swap at the momen, let's wait for dev confirmation

He mentions the swap is still on about four posts above yours.

Wow, what an odd what an odd coincidence. I haven't been on BCT or logged in for ages and I randomly had the idea to look up this thread and check my URHOC balances to make sure I could still access them. Cool to see the OP/DEV back.

What's the next move in the revolution @DecentralizeEconomics ?
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin or Property? What might be the best investment? on: July 11, 2018, 01:55:36 PM
I think percentage wise it's an easy choice - bitcoin can easily go three, four, five times it's value in a short period of time. Good luck finding a property that will do the same thing. Granted, property value will probably be more stable than btc but I still think btc is the better choice if you have money to invest and aren't afraid of the bear market.

Depends on the level of risk that you're comfortable with. Personally, I think that crytpo is the better long term investment although the road can get rough at times. I think the stock market is in for a major correction. In crypto, your investment can 'moon' quickly, but as this current bear market shows, it can also recede just as quickly.

It's probably best to diversify, though - stuff like stocks, bonds, gold, silver, real estate, cryto, etc. Better not to put all your eggs in just one basket.

This is the future, if your child doesn't learn how to use technology from a young age they will be left behind.  If you want no phones go be Amish.

I disagree on this point - technology to this extent didn't exist when I was a kid - most of this stuff was learned at an older age for myself. I think giving your child some books will put them at a greater advantage as far as development and learning that letting them stare at an iPad or the like.  There's no real advantage to learning how to use an iPhone at 3 vs at 10 or something like that. I'd be willing to bet it actually stifles social interaction.

I think poverty is a byproduct of our fallen nature. People aren't perfect and the governments - which are just institutions created by people - reflect this. That being said, there are some inherent issues is a government trying to solve poverty - the scale is too great and their methods tend to be very inefficient. On a local level, things can be handled more properly, but very few people are willing to contribute the resources necessary to attack this problem. I'm sure that it can be reduced by a greater degree, but I think the poor will always be with us.

I'm going to go with 'D' as well - especially since you didn't specify a time frame. Eventually, it will beat the 2017 highs, but I have no idea when. 2018 seems to be looking less and less likely at this point. What gives me confidence is that I believe in the technology and that it actually fulfills a need in society that is not met by the current banking system. As people begin to realize this, the 2017 highs will look like pocket change.
9  Economy / Speculation / Re: Why Bitcoin May Soon Be Worth Nothing on: July 05, 2018, 06:32:30 PM
Yeah, I saw this 'article' show up in my Google news feed this morning. I think it's just click bait because the actual text isn't very long and doesn't give any explanation. He just opens the article up, calls bitcoin a few names, and then leaves. More than likely it's just an attempt to generate web traffic because it's piss poor journalism.

People that don't think btc has intrinsic value don't understand the revolution made possible by the technology behind it.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Hack Proof or Not? on: July 05, 2018, 01:59:42 PM
The technology behind it is secure - for the current time. If quantum computers are developed then we might be looking at a different story. The thing with technology, though, is it evolves. If something were to happen to show that Btc was exploitable, there would be a fork or a replacement that wasn't vulnerable to that hack.

Currently, I'm not too concerned about it - I think we're a long ways from having the type of computer necessary to do this sort of thing.

I see Gold at $2100/ounce

I'd like to see that - besides crypto I've got a bit in physical as well. The gold and silver market has been manipulated for ages though - I'd be shocked if 'they' let it go that high. It would probably take a storm of events to get enough people going to the safe haven of gold to pump it up to $2100.

Interesting article - I'd never heard of this particular method. I was familiar with Minereum but it looks to be slightly more expensive to go that route unless you're a genesis address holder and have some to burn.

Honestly, there's probably too many crap ERC20 tokens as it is. I guess the current bear market is a good way of weeding through those, though.

Israel's human rights violations are egregious; they're an apartheid state. Nikki Haley - my former governor - doesn't have a clue what's actually going on there and how the Palestinians are treated. Time to wake up.

I prefer not to get too specific, but had I cashed out at the right time, I would have done very, very well with a recent bounty/airdrop. I still believe in the project, but the price has plummeted. Kicking myself for not timing things better but such is life.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: $300 million transferred for 4 cents in fees! on: June 28, 2018, 01:43:51 PM
Very cool example of how this technology can and will revolutionize the banking industry (among other things). A wire transfer for that amount would probably take a month to clear all the hurdles it would need to go through. The fundamental technology is revolutionary; once the masses realize this, the price will follow.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin ethical? on: June 27, 2018, 03:52:01 PM
Bitcoin is just a tool - a means to an end. It's a transfer of wealth, which is really just a transfer of work or energy. You can do moral or immoral things with it, but the crypto itself is neutral. The same thing can be said for money, or guns, or any tool that can be used for good or bad.

How would you feel about a parent who has a young child in the back seat of their car while driving after having a lot to drink -- enough to put the parent well over the "legal limit" of alcohol in their blood to be driving? Do you think it would be right to take away the child from this parent because the parent has shown willful disregard of the child's safety?



I'm not sure I follow your analogy - in one instance there is willful endangerment in the other they probably came to the US illegally so their kid(s) could have a better life. If the only link you're making is the 'legality' or lack of it in both actions then that's a pretty weak argument. What is illegal isn't always morally wrong and vice versa. Maybe I'm misinterpreting your argument; if so then I apologize in advance. 
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin to 3000$? on: June 25, 2018, 07:37:54 PM
Never been a fan of Technical Analysis myself - as was mentioned, I think it's more luck than anything else. I suppose it's possible - anything is - but I don't personally believe it will drop that low. I could be completely wrong, but I think we're about to see things start to turn around. Recovery can be a slow process, though.

How to Bet Agains Bitcoin Without Risk?

I thought about shorting bitcoin in bitfinex but i think there's risk of a margin call... (even if I don't use leverage the exchange could close my position right?)

basically I want to bet against bitcoin without risk for the next 5 years

is this possible? how?



It's possible.
Go to coinmarketcap and print a lot of past charts
 build a small time machine
Go back in time and short bitcoin in all crashes.

Hilarious - still, if he goes back in time, there's a risk of him screwing up his future or some unforeseen butterfly effect that ripples through time, lol.

In all seriousness though, if you're 'betting' against something - money is involved and with it, inherent risks.

I'll add to the users that are relying on a Nano Ledger S. Not sure what the wait is there days - it was a few months when I ordered mine, but I would recommend going through the manufacturer. Getting it third party can be faster, but it's less secure. I haven't been using it a ton, but it's relatively easy and straightforward and there's plenty of tutorials available online.
