What are this coin's goals? What would make me want to spend time and resources on it?

well, yes. they can. even without too much thought, this is one case where size does actually matter.

If price goes up, fees go up. Bitcoin has very low fees... if you're sending massive transactions.

If its no longer fit for small sums, then so be it. There are plenty of alternatives. There is no real need for BTC to support tiny transactions, even without that it has a place and value. (much like, say, gold does IRL).
164  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is it over?? on: December 22, 2017, 07:22:08 PM
the price moved a lot, but... trade volume wasn't actually that "far out". lots of money moved, but these days... lots of money moves.
volume has been well high in the last month in general.

Are others "crashing" that bad? really? open a few, and check their to-BTC price change. It won't be nearly the same as the one you see VS. the dollar.

The entire crypto-space is still strongly based (and to an extent "pegged") to the value of BTC. most other coins, with exceptionally few outliers, are little more than an emanation of BTC's US Dollar value. So, add this "physiological" connection with the natural "crypto-panic" such a downfall causes, and there you have it.

no offence but... you can't actually drop more than 100% in a 0-minimum system

It is amazing to see the so-called "investors" in here only react on emotion and anecdotes, but not be able to do simple mathematics

It's amazing how some people can selectively ignore whole posts that don't fit their narrative...

Or, you know, realize this isn't a religious war, but a market where portfolio differentiation can be the key to survival?

a few _days_ ago it gre by 1000$ in some 2 minutes. 120 seconds. Is it _really_ unseen territory?

Also, I recall a 50-some% drop smetime in 2011... guess most people don't go that far back?


Oh, not to mention the collapse in 2013?

Nope. 1000$ drop a few days was not that much in % because the price was high.

Previous crashes had the effects of Mt.Gox being the largest impact. Price dropped 36% over 2 months, and then for a total of 80% over some 6-8 months. But note the timescale here - months. Never this sharp a drop this fast.

I was referring to a 1000$ rise not drop. Growth was faster than it's been before, that's what I was pointing to.

Also, if you really are fixated with history and mathematics, use historical data https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/price/

April 9 2013 to April 11 2013, then April 13 and 16.

This is really a big problem, the poor will not like to use bitcoin. But I think the richvpeople will still buy bitcoin for investment. May be bitcoin is only for elite people and the poor only can use altcoin. Bitcoin will never dead.

Why is it a big problem? You re making it out as if poor People are the "powerhouse" behind bitcoin. Why would you think that? If bitcoin no longer is for to be misused as a currency, then why not focus on btc as a commodity anmnd something else for small transactions.

Nobody buys Milk with sovreigns, yet they are perfectly fine

Why is almost everyone fixated with micropayments? Bitcoin is what it is, if it could only be succesful when used for paying scones and pancackes, then it would not be where it is.

Nothing stops a cryptocurrency from rising to prominence in the micropayment Space without Bitcoin going anywhere. The economy is big.

Quella domanda non in particolare quella principale da farsi riguardo al cloud mining.

Gli investimenti non si misurano solo in termini di ritorno finale, ci sono fattori come, ad esempio, il rischio che sono tutt'altro che irrisori. Io osso decidere di investire in 1000 macchine di mining, e vedere dove va a finire, cosi il mio tempo per il ROI lunghissimo. Se invece vendo ad un prezzo maggiorato (pi copertura delle mie spese) ecco che mi ripago l'investimento subito o quasi, e osso.

175  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin holder's dilemma on: November 30, 2017, 09:20:29 AM
if a person has, say, 22 BTC then they need to suck it up and stop trying to off-load their responsabilities and worries on others. There isn't a magical right moment, and nobody can even remotely suggest a decent one that will make the supposed person happy.

keep in mind that nobody has to sell his entire starsh at once.
176  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How does transactions get logged when all blocks are mined on: November 20, 2017, 12:33:33 PM
The answer is rather simple, blocks will continue to be mined. What you are confusing is the reward trending towards 0 with a cessation of the mining system. This simply doesn't happen.

Rather simply, mining will continue with 0 rewards.
177  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] [EON] EXSCUDO - ICO successfully finished! on: November 16, 2017, 11:54:19 AM
hi dev, can you at least find a solution to withdraw our tokens to a wallet ? i dont find it secure with the portal ... 

It doesn't get much safer than it is right now. There are no (non-testnet) EON coins (n.b: EON is not a token). They simply do not exist. They arn't "on the portal" at all. What you see there is nothing more than a number which represents your future entitlement. It's an entry in a database. It isn't a wallet, nor does it "support" transactions. People can't steal what doesn't exist.

Your EON will never be as safe as today, as once they are issued you will have to store them in your own walled and handle security.

The price is perfectly fine.
Some "investors" are not... but the price is.

just get rid of all these cumbersome bitcoins, I'm sure people will be very happy to take the pain away ^^
180  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: ANN [MCO] MONACO #1 Cryptocurrency Payments Card on: November 13, 2017, 10:07:49 PM
What I find, at the very best, puerile is refusing to recognize that Monaco's actions have a reason--a good reason--and the reason was indeed explained.

No doubt it's painful, when a "promise" is broken, but sometimes, some people seem to think we are investing in the "real world". We are not, we are in the wildest west, and players like Monaco are the few golden nuggets that are actually working towards navigating this complicated landscape with a clear intent, bridging the regulatory gap. If this means breaking a promise, with transparency, so be it.

Sometimes, pain is necessary for progress. Money that was invested has been invested, now it's time to wait, see what happens, and provide constructive feedback to the Monaco team.

Everything else is just fruitless noise.
