Crossed $11,000 but the rate of price increase looks scary to me,it won't be a bull trap right? Lips sealed

Anyways I am in the profits nearly after a year,planned to sell some of my holding at the end of this year?

This can be a good idea?

Well, out of the 10+ year history of bitcoin all sells would be regrettable but a brief 7 week period that was higher than now, and likely not for long, so it's almost never a good plan to sell BTC..

I sold like .8 BTC @ $300 for an intercooler and gofast bits, and regret it..
I still have that car with that intercooler and every time I see it it looks like a $5,000 intercooler made in china..

Then I sold like .8 BTC @ $9,500 in 2017 when it looked like it wasn't going to break $10k for the first time, for a nice car I am still daily driving today, and I regret it..
I didn't need the nice car, it is nice but I could just still be driving my rusty Subaru and have my .8 BTC back Sad

So I would say no.. Unless you are absolutely starving to death it is basically never a good idea to sell BTC..

I am lucky to have what coin I still have and it is going to be very hard for me not to put it down on a new house/property investment, because I want a nicer house..
But I know if I sell @ $30,000 or so and it goes to $300,000 or whatever in the future I will deeply regret it for the rest of my life because this is my one and only chance to hold the best lottery tickets the world has ever seen..
If I sell their is no way I will ever be able to get them back..

I think I should suffer through my life of being half poor until the bitcoins are high enough for me to basiclly fuck off in a sailboat or something for the rest of my life, leave all the worldly BS behind, and then still only sell what I need to as I go instead of cash right out..
If I can resist buying a house.. But in the long term I don't even really want a house for anything other than rental income..

Thinking about buying some XCP
You know where to get them for free Smiley

I have thought about those..

Why couldn't a person write a TX to send 1btc with a decent fee to 1xxx addy AND those XCP the 1xxx addy all in 1 TX, like multiple inputs used?
Then you would not have to put the miner fee onto the XCP addy but sweep them in a larger TX that got its fee from a different input..

I remember that first pump to break $500 after the crash from 1200, it was like maybe BTC isn't dead afterall..

I said 10k all the time back then but it was half a joke..

It looks to me like we could break 10k in just a few hours.. It's only another $75 push!

You cannot flag them all.. It is not technically possible..

Managers will not see the flag.
I'm pretty sure they will/can if they check trust pages..

1193  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Why don't we set up capitalist and socialist communes to test which is better? on: June 15, 2019, 06:41:56 PM

Lets get 2 islands and dump 1,000 people on each of them..

One is allowed to bring anything they want, buy and sell anything they want, and give voluntary charity to anyone they want.. Only the highest value people are allowed to come, so if you are poor and stupid you can't come..

The other the people are only allowed to bring what they have made themselves. They cannot have any products produced by capitalism or acquired through trade. When they get there everyone has to put everything they brought into a pile in the middle that now belongs to everyone, no personal property.. Only the highest value victim cards can come, so only the poorest, stupidest, and most whacked out people can come..

Then leave them on their island to survive, or not survive..
Maybe the commies can survive by hunter/gatherer means and grow some food if they brought some plants..

I would suggest the capitalists create a tourist attraction on their island to get people coming to spend money. They could also grow a high value cash crop for export, do internet jobs, start an industry, etc..

Sit back and watch?

Redpilling people ain't easy..
You would think that people on BITCOINtalk would be more open to redpilling but many of them are just here for the money or something other than the libertarian qualities of Bitcoin so they are still thick..

I even see posts other places often for example about Julian Assange's dead man switch and efforts to decode it from the Bitcoin blockchain, but not here.. IDK why but it seems that that ultimate libertarian cypherpunk hacker scene is not here...

I suggest you air your grievances with hilarious and come to terms, even if you just agree to disagree. You should think, from his perspective, their is logic behind his views and actions, even if you 2 don't see the world from the same hilltop..
I don't think he is someone you want as an enemy with a complete lack of mutual respect..

Amaclin, due to his cunning, intelligence, and technical knowledge, may be one of the most dangerous active users on this forum.

This user has a long history of scamming other users via doublespends and other technical blockchain tricks, and even ground Bitcoin itself to a near halt with blockchain malleability attacks.. Read their trust summaries..;u=1072601;u=197593;u=197593  amaclin is the old unused account;u=1072601  amaclin1 is the new active account of this person and even has a positive trust from a DT member recently..

I don't know if amaclin is still currently attempting scams these days but if anyone needs a newbie/guest warning it is this person IMO..

Me not having been a victim myself, I can only place a newbie warning flag (level 1) but vlom may be eligible to place level 3 flags on amaclin due to being scammed by him here
Yes even a very experienced "scambusting" user gets scammed by amaclin..

Amaclin, if you read this know that I do admire you to a certain extent and actually expect you to be proud of your flags..

So here we go, will edit in flag links momentarily..;flag=110 amaclin1;flag=111 amaclin
1197  Other / Meta / Re: Let me be the first to start a bitching thread about the flags on: June 14, 2019, 06:29:23 PM
Some longstanding members, which rarely visiting Meta or Reputation, may not notice "#" symbol and can lose money because of this.

Newbie-warning flags are only for warning newbies, not for warning experienced members who should know better
The "#" symbol is supposed to be inconspicuous

1198  Other / Meta / Re: theymosisms on Trust Flags on: June 14, 2019, 07:18:44 AM
they will require great evidences to create a scammer tag or else they will be outcast from their beloved powerful positions.
Wasn't that always the case?

Well now you have to be the victim yourself and have hard facts to place the hard hitting negs, and have 2 other DT2 or DT1 supporters for your claim, so it's a bit of a step up as far as requirements I'd say..

You have to attest that this is true..
"This user violated a written contract with me, resulting in damages."

And make sure this turns out as a factually correct statement by correctly filling out some boxes..
"eddie13 alleges: bigvern violated a written contract, resulting in damages, in the specific act referenced here. bigvern did not make the victims of this act roughly whole, AND it is not the case that all of the victims forgave the act. It is not grossly inaccurate to say that the act occurred around January 2016. No previously-created flag covers this same act, unless the flag was created with inaccurate data preventing its acceptance.";flag=84

And if you screw that up then..
Creating or supporting a scammer flag is actively affirming a set of pretty clear fact-statements. If someone knowingly supports a flag containing incorrect fact-statements, then that is crystal-clear abuse, and I will seek to have such people removed from DT ASAP.

Cuban necktie for you, or whoever..

Quick maths shows this is nearly impossible and likely some sort of scam

Wow, I have like 2500 pages of polo lending earnings and even wrote a few times about how to game the polo lending bot, which they have fixed/changed since.. Never have I heard of any losses from polo lending..
He says "some random shitcoin (CLAM) I haven't even heard of". He must not have been around all that long.. Isn't clam coin dooglus's or something related to that casino?
The losses to the lending pool occurred for several reasons. First, the velocity of the crash and the lack of liquidity in the CLAM market made it impossible for all of the automatic liquidations of CLAM margin positions to process as they normally would in a liquid market. In addition, a significant amount of the total loan value was collateralized in CLAM, so both the borrowers’ positions and their collateral lost most of their value simultaneously. As a result, some borrowers were unable to repay their loans with the digital assets they held on Poloniex.

Sounds like a great way for a clam whale to scam a bunch of BTC off of polo..

Also I am very familiar with the Clamcoin market, and it was well known to have a lack of liquidity. This was not an accident it was a setup. This is exactly the type of behavior Cryptsy was exhibiting, in fact point by point. If I remember right Cryptsy didn't have margin trading, but they played similar games with liquidity and other processes. For example they would let people drive up a coin's price then disable the front end so they could scalp the order books via the API which was still active.

I've traded clams for a long time too, loaned on polo for a long time, and saw cryptsy pull some stuff but more like disable wallets to let a pump run but have never been much into APIs..

If you were a clam whale you could put some clams on polo and use them to borrow a margin position against, use that and all your BTC to pump clam, then dump all your clam and withdraw all the BTC you could immediately.. If you wrecked polo's bot you might make off with some BTC of lenders funds..

You could do this with 2 accounts..
One to deposit clam and use to borrow BTC against and use the btc to pump clam and place huge buy orders on clam.
2nd account to deposit clam and dump onto the pump and to dump onto your other account which is just clams you used to borrow BTC to dump onto..
