Regardless of the Crypto , at this stage in the evolution of Bitcoin, Fiat is still a marker, whether we are fiat lovers or not..
The store value of both Ethereum and Bitcoin have increased.  
Have you ever considered that Ethereum may even surpass Bitcoin?  It is highly possible considering the last years growth..

I don't care if it surpasses btc or not. I still won't hold and use it because it is centralized shit that has no cap and is obviously not immutable and gets hacked and has terrible bugs etc etc

Eth and btc are like apples to oranges..

Need this gone. Looking for 1.6BTC. Let me know. Buyer pays Escrow.

1.5 tonight  Wink

That's like almost $10,000 premium on a coin which is amazing to me for a coin that is only a couple years old and only really worth like $15 bullion value..

Not that I'm saying it isn't worth it but wow isn't that something..

My btc with Sweeet is not locked in usd. I am owed 0.06. Now I have asked for 0.046, that leaves 0.014 (~270 USD). If my repayment amount is in BTC, why would I be paid 0.12 if the value halved? 0.06, that is all.

I will further consider your offer when I have free time to do so..
1790  Economy / Exchanges / Re: State of Bitcoin exchanges on: December 17, 2017, 05:28:02 PM
Please post experiences of Bitcoin exchanges at the current time. Opening accounts, trading, deposits and withdrawals.

Here are my observations in the last few days

Coinbase/GDAX: tried to verify account multiple times but no reply from coinbase. People did report success if using the mobile app but that was over a week ago.

Bitstamp: can still transfer less than $10,000 to an existing account. Larger sums get lost both in and out. One guy on reddit is waiting for a $1.8m wire.

Bittrex: not opening new accounts.

Binance: I cannot login but was able to credit BTC to account this morning.

Bitfinex: awaiting verification from weeks ago.

Gemini: awaiting verification from this week.

What are your experiences at the moment? What exchanges are working?

I have been able to set up a coinbase/gdax account and use it.. I have even been able to extra verify it and increase my limits (not that I'd use them up).. The limits don't really increase that much.. Enough for a small timer like me sure but not enough for serious business unless you request a certain amount..

“Bitcoin exchange warns customers of system collapse if prices crash”

“A leading bitcoin exchange has warned that customers may be unable to get their money out quickly in the event of a crash in the cryptocurrency's price.

Writing in a blog post last week, Coinbase's co-founder and chief executive Brian Armstrong, said despite "sizeable and ongoing" increases in the firm's technical infrastructure and engineering staff, access to Coinbase services could become "degraded or unavailable during times of significant volatility or volume".

"This could result in the inability to buy or sell for period of time," he said.”

“Bitcoin Exchanges Are Buckling While the Price Surges Past $16,000”

Well I think it's nice of them to be honest about it because it's the truth.. A lot of people get real suspicious when their are major movements and eschanges go down, rightfully so, including myself, because it would be a good way to scam..
Butt.. I have sceen it happen with my own 2 eyes on pretty much EVERY exchange I have ever traded and yeah, huge volume like DDOS's the exchanges..

I wonder why they seem not to be very salable.. Even the centralized 3rd party can't scale imagine that..
What the hell are they running up against? Bottle necking bandwidth? Server processing power?
Why can't they get their shit together and improve the infrastructure?
I can understand small exchanges being cheap but coinbase? Kracken? Finex? God they make so much money they should be able to afford top of the line services..
1791  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BTC Survey- How many BTC do you have frozen on Vircurex? on: December 17, 2017, 05:03:09 PM
2 BTC and 100 LTC still frozen. :-(

I still hope for a miracle!

Start a cryptsy class action thread or something..

I don't really know anything about the vircurex situation but I know that if I had that much "stuck" somewhere I would be beating on someones door somewhere..

Isn't sweeet's debt pegged in USD?

Hi Sweet
In response to your message, I would like my layout in BTC as USD is not my native currency. No rush, but do you have any idea of when I will be receiving my funds back? I'm on edge a little haha.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
Well its not like I'd be repaying you in USD just in BTC but the value of the Bitcoin is calculated from the USD value of bitcoin from the time of your transaction. So I would be repaying you in BTC but you would receive the same amount of USD value instead of BTC value. As of time of repayment I have no clue I am first repaying drunkenone then Taras then you.

How can you state the repayment amount from sweeet in terms of BTC....

I paid Sweeet 0.06, which is due to be returned to me at some unknown point.

Why don't I just tell Sweet I want my 0.06 now?
Because that's what everyone wants, and what everyone can't get at the moment.

What will I earn?
To get the repayment of my 0.06 stake directly from Sweeet, I ask to be paid 0.053. This is negotiable

If BTC could double tomorrow and then only be repaid half of the .6 BTC pegged to USD, or crash X4 tomorow and be repaid 4X in btc??

If you agree to lock your BTC to the USD value at the time it was sent which is: $5341

Is that .06 BTC pegged at $5341 or is that $19,500 BTC?


If that .06 BTC is pegged at $5300 and now we are at $19,500 that's like ... 0.0163 BTC now for full repayment..

This MUST not be the case if you are stating a projected profit of $180 from buying this debt note at 0.05BTC

1797  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: POLL: How can you trade cryptocurrency without getting "hacked" by an exchange? on: December 16, 2017, 04:15:34 AM

What if you're aware that the amount that you would trade on an exchange would be enough to immediately trigger an exit scam aka "hack" of the exchange,

Well if I were aware that I was trading such an amount that would be irresistible to the exchange operators not to steal it then I damn sure wouldn't be sending that amount to an exchange..
But what is this amount and how do you determine what amount would be irresistible? I think for most exchanges that aren't extremely illiquid this would have to be an extremely large amount to be significant in comparison to their current total deposits..
I think having any amount of coins sitting on any exchange or web wallet where a 3rd party has control of your keys is a risk and I suppose te greater the amount the more temptation any of them would have to steal it from you..

no warning on "zero-day" except the maxim that once you send your cryptocoins to a private key not under your exclusive control, they're no longer yours?

It could definitely happen and does.. Weather it be that you happened to be unlucky enough for it to occur while your coin was there (depending on your time level of exposure, sitting vs in and out), or that if your transaction itself was so large that it triggers such a heist may very well increase your risk..
All trading is a risk and relinquishing control of your keys is another part of that risk..  Once you send your crypto to a 3rd party then in all actuality you don't have that crypto anymore, all you have is a tally in some centralized ledger that says your account is credited X.XXX coin and that they are known for giving you your coins back at your request of a withdrawal.. But they don't have to send them back, they have the keys, you put your coin in their hands because you trusted them enough to take that risk..

P.S. No trading variable tokens that incur losses from slippage.

I'm not sure what you mean by this but I'm guessing to exclude decentralized exchanges though pretty much every crypto is a "variable tokens that incur losses from slippage" in that their prices vary and the price will slip on you if you put in a big enough order.. BTC price will slip if you market buy a few million worth and so would pretty much anything commonly traded if your order is big enough..
How big of an order would it take to make US government bonds slip or perhaps the gold market? I don't know..

Pretty much if you want to trade crypto on any exchange you are sacrificing that risk of handing your control of your coin over in exchange for ease, speed, and organization that an exchange delivers.. It's a lot easier, faster, and more organized to trade on an exchange rather than try to find tat 1 trading partner in a million that wants to trade you what you want for what you have at a rate that is agreeable to both of you..

For example, this is why I liked to trade huobi with leverage so I could risk 1/5th of my crypto on deposit and then trade with 5X that amount as if I had deposited that much in the first place.. A good amount less risk of losing your coin to that exchange but you incur higher trading fees because of it..

You could trade here.. Decentralised-Liquidity Exchange -- 'D-L-Ex'
But then you would still have to trust an escrow or trust your trading partner, or your trading partner would have to trust you, and any of those could also run with your coin or you run with theirs..

It's pretty hard for me to come up with any situation where you could trade without any risk of being robbed other than a decentralized exchange like counterparty, but, if you havn't tried the counterparty DEX, it take a bitcoin block to confirm any trade you post and you have to pay a bitcoin fee to get every one of your trades to post, so it's very slow and very expensive..

Every step of the trading process has to be considered against your personally acceptable level of how much risk you are willing to take in order to possible have what gain as a result of success.. Just the trade itself has risk before you even get to what if the market moves against you..

It's all part of the gamble, choose your game wisely..

1799  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Repeal of Net neutrality - effects on miners on: December 16, 2017, 02:41:32 AM
If nothing changes, then why are the proponents of the repeal so happy? If nothing changes, then why did they want to get rid of net neutrality?
Here's what it comes down to: Federal regulation vs free enterprise.  The internet was already neutral before Obama decided to make it a regulated utility like a railroad.  The proponents of the repeal are happy because it's back to free enterprise, which is a good thing.  And the internet is staying neutral anyway.

The (loud) supporters of Obama's regulations probably just hate Trump so much that everything he does is wrong. Period.  We live in a highly polarized political climate right now.

Repealing net neutrality is about keeping government the hell out of the internet and the free market..
The less government in anything the better almost always..

Your government is bad, spains government is bad, canada's government is bad, my USA government is bad.
The greatest thing the government can do is less..
I want my government to do less of everything when it comes to my freedom and the free market..
I don't much mind if they build more military and do more to protect my country from turning into the 3rd world though..

Google, youtube, facebook, the big data collectors and users, those spying on you, are the huge proponents of "net neutrality" so they can get their fingers in through the gov and screw you even more than they are already..

You want that?
1800  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: My journey to beat the market and protect the downside. Algorithmic Trading. on: December 16, 2017, 02:20:38 AM
I wonder how silly professional traders feel to know that all these stupid uneducated crypto traders are kicking their butts?

You can't beat the market long term? lol
You can't win every trade every time (unless you take very little risk for very little gain) but you sure can win more than you lose in the longterm therefore beating the market..
You can make money in a market on the way down without shorts too, catch the dead cat bounces..

I think the fact that many crypto traders trade emotionally is what makes the market and what makes it predictable to me..
You can see the fear, greed, FOMO, etc building and then take on momentum which feeds on itself until it fizzles out.. Learning to spot this momentum in it's earlier stages lets you jump on and ride the wave..

It's easy to look back on a chart and say "See this line did this and then the market did this blah blah blah", but right NOW the line isn't made yet..
Their are all sorts of trading patterns, sure sometimes they work, but then sometimes you get a whale setting up a pattern and then crushing it the other direction to trap as many people as they can..

Crypto, especially the smaller markets, huge RANDOM changes happen in the blink of an eye.. You even get fat finger trades..
