Important to bear in mind that ChartBuddy was a bot that would post charts every hour. If you were beating that, you might be taking things a bit too seriously Smiley

It gets better and better.

You´re boring, i want a Electro-Porsche.
Minimum.


I had an XK8 for a while but that got totalled. I actually preferred driving a G37 though (The looks were a bit mundane for my taste however).

I never liked those super-expensive cars... Most of them are way over-priced, offer no real design/technology innovation, consume lots of fuel, and some are really ugly to my taste (Lambos included).

I'd prefer a good Japanese, super-reliable and normally-priced car. Or a car with real innovation in its design, like a Tesla (provided they sort out their QC issues).

Definitely. I'm currently driving a 2000 TDI VW Jetta with 280,000 miles I paid cash for. I've had a new car on my radar for a while now but this one just keeps on keeping on. My replacement wishlist is pretty modest too (though it does include a Tesla Cheesy).

Under old-style Keynesian theory, economic growth is driven by consumer spending, not saving, so anyone who is hoarding money under the mattress is holding back progress. Hoarders are the enemy. “Every such attempt to save more by reducing consumption will so affect incomes,” wrote J.M Keynes, “that the attempt necessarily defeats itself.” He popularized what became known as the “Paradox of Thrift.”


Keynes was a hack. I think he only gained favor because he allowed governments to rationalize their kleptocratic behavior to the masses. And the masses actually buy it.

I like these small dips. It shows that the current Bitcoin growth is healthy and not a bubble.

Definitely. It could still be a bit of a bubble but the constant rise was unnerving.

Ridiculous conspiracy all in your head and in the heads of the other r/btc nutjobs.. including Ver, jihan and Craig... .. all circle jerking the same bullshit censorship nonsense over something that more or less did not exist... except for the purpose of whining, distracting and trying to change the governance of bitcoin with the various attacks and nonsense.

Thank you for providing a prime example of the toxic approach Richy_T was describing.



I don't even mind toxic too much. I've been on the internet a long time and have a very thick skin. The actions JJG are poo-pooing are well documented and can be seen in external sites which track deletions. You only have to look at the sub now and see how cultivated the narrative is there. Some of the stuff floating around on r/btc has little to no foundation but there's plenty that's well-proven. That's just the risks of having an uncensored sub though. It depends if you prefer to use your own brain or the mods...

But this is a wall thread and I don't want to get deep into all that. Amazed not to have seen a huge movement while I slept and pleased to see my transaction eventually went through.

For now I am cautiously in the small block camp while vigilantly watching out for any sort of shenanigans.


I have a transaction (1 input, 2 outputs) with an $11 fee sitting waiting to be confirmed for two hours now. Make of that what you will.

There's mostly no such thing as uncorrelated assets because money is a zero sum game with money sloshing around from one asset to another,

I think it helps to think of things as simply a trade rather than putting money into something. If you buy $10k worth of gold, the money doesn't "go into" gold, it goes into the pocket of the guy who sold it to you (or more likely his bank increases some numbers in a database). Exactly what you'll get for it when you want to divest yourself of it is another question. So, as you imply, the problem is that there is simply too much money out there and it's just a question of which asset's (or assets') price will become a bubble and burst to destroy the excess.

Anyway my point is this: please don't leave just because you feel like supporting "the wrong side" here. There are people and ideas worth supporting on all sides.

As I say, it was never about that. This place even hasn't been quite so bad as what has happened and continues to happen on Reddit but things have been done that have greatly damaged the community and more.

I would not put your opinion down either. You have been around long enough that you surely have a good feel for what works and what doesn't. Just because someone has a speciality in cryptography or coding doesn't mean they're right about everything (in fact, often the opposite). If that still puts you in the small block camp, fair enough but don't be afraid to think for yourself.

Don’t eat, buy a Trezor and get All of them off the exchange and into cold. 

Fixed  Wink

Heck, get all of them off the exchange and onto a virus-ridden windows box and it's probably still safer Smiley

People aren't taking profits like they expected.

I bought $700 worth of new PC equipment. What more could he want?
14  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: December 08, 2017, 02:18:44 AM
yeah.. the 32K !!

and NotLambChop posting Coyote gifs hitting a rock with a $400 price tag.

Classics...  Grin

I was just thinking of that yesterday. Also, that one with the soaring emoticon shooting through all the price lines needs to be updated.

Just looked in and see you replaced Coinbase with Gdax.

Hope you don't mind me quoting you:



Sure thing. I think gdax was before the move (maybe?). I suddenly stopped being able to get data from Coinbase so I switched over. I thought they had just renamed it or split it off but I've heard things since that I'm not so sure anymore.

I am sure you'll be most welcome by more than a few here.  Big Blockers get a hard time, yep - it's pretty much heavily pro-Core of course, but it's still fun and all and sundry drop in and pretty much all points of view exist, as they probably should - although the ignore button is still an occasionally welcome option Wink

I have no problem with any of that. Small blocks, big blocks, it's a conversation to be had and I'll go toe-to-toe with anyone about my opinions. I just don't like what happened to that conversation and feel that visiting this site, unfortunately, supports the perpetrator(s).

I did try it, but Chartbuddy was all I could see most of the time.  Good to see you here again Richy.  It's pretty much as anarchic as ever.

I do miss the atmosphere here. It's a bit srs bsns on the big-blocker side of the fence. I just can't frequent here on the regular in good conscience but I'll stick my head back in once in a while Smiley

Evening all. Cheesy

welcome back  Grin  btc 20K yet?<<<

Considering it went up 1500 while I slept last night, could be soon.
19  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: December 07, 2017, 11:30:28 PM

Well look who the cat dragged in. Greetings.

We've missed you and Buddy. Buddy must look a lot different with today's prices.

I guess I should head over there more often and see how you, Buddy an Adam are doing. My bad.

Hopefully we're all a lot richer. Cheers.


Unfortunately, the wall observer thread over there never really caught on well and has pretty much stalled out since August. I'm considering other Chartbuddy options to keep him going but he's there more as a placeholder these days.

Either unemployment skyrockets, in the worst case causing extreme poverty and eventually riots/revolution. Or everyone agrees to lower weekly working hours and shares the income like that (which also means that wages for sure need to go up). Or some sort of UBI is implemented, so no one if forced into poverty.


The problem is that humans are breeding machines. So if you pay people just to exist, you end up with a population problem which is not pleasant to have to take other means to control. The good news is that education tends to lower reproductive rates. The bad news is that if you're paying people just for breathing (and breeding), what incentive is there to get an education?
