I think we'd all tap that ass.

(OT)
Most Eastern European women are hot and well educated. It's in their culture to make themselves desirable so they can find a wealthy man to marry.
And there is shortage of males over there, so law of demand and offer applies.

You might notice that the exact opposite happens in US Wink

.....when the EU freezes all Slovenian bank accounts according to the terms of a new bailout and the only way to withdraw your funds will be through Bitcoin.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/apr/09/slovenia-eurozone-bailout-rumours

Discuss.

Note: I'm not implying anything against the integrity of Bitstamp, rather the integrity of the Slovenian banking system after a bailout.

AFAIK for payments BitStamp uses an account at the Slovenian branch of UniCredit, which is a big (troubled) Italian bank anyway.
Not sure if and how they would ever be affected by a bailout scenario.

guys, please keep alternating panic buys and panic sells in waves.

The last one just got me 10+ free btc.

Thank you thank you thank you  Grin
1084  Economy / Speculation / the Gox down test - let's see how really decentralized we are on: April 11, 2013, 10:19:26 AM
Gox goes up and down continuously, last trades before down were at 148 at the moment.
Bitfloor still trading over 141.
Bitstamp at 132.

Watching it happening is almost as addictive as Game of Thrones season 2...
1085  Economy / Speculation / Re: How does it feel to have sold < $120? on: April 11, 2013, 10:13:00 AM
Let's see how things look in a week.  I'm guessing those who sold at all in the past 48 hours will be please if they haven't already bought back in.  2013 is the new 2011, except this time the damage is much worse.

When you equate damage to price fall or rise you miss the real fundamentals of what bitcoin offers.

Price could be 1 penny yet you can still transfer value all over the world instantly for little or no fee. This is where bitcoin is valuable.

the battle of the trolls Smiley

if all you see is a blip then your eyes are not sharp enough and someone with sharper will soon pick your pocket.

thanks for the lesson about the inverse pennant whatever. But don't be so sure of yourself Smiley

I believe it is a good thing to know TA because it gives you a sense of security and of knowing something others don't.
The problem I see with it is that others DO know TA too, and they generally read the same book you did.
You can try to be be smarter than them and predict what everyone else will try to predict. And that's only the second level of inception. Grin

We'll see soon enough what happens next anyway.

LOL about life. I had none for last three days.
1087  Economy / Speculation / if USD/BTC converged to 180 today and stayed there for a month or two... on: April 11, 2013, 07:14:27 AM
It would do us all a big favour.

We could see trust in bitcoin building up. Companies using it. New services coming onboard. Online stores. Pricing shifting from using USD to using BTC as main currency. Real chances for us to BOTH save BTC we don't need - because they are protected from inflation - AND spend the ones we need to spend. All the people on this planet using only the resources they need. A sustainable economy replacing unsustainable growth.

Sorry, I did not sleep much. Just daydreaming.
(and yes, I finally used the word "sustainable" too.)
1088  Economy / Speculation / Re: all I see is a blip on: April 11, 2013, 05:47:30 AM
$500 on the 15th by this graph.  Sounds plausible to me.

I think we'll miss that mark. This will take DAYS to recover.
1089  Economy / Speculation / all I see is a blip on: April 11, 2013, 05:35:20 AM
so stop all this "the end is near" bullshit talk. Or otherwise please panic. Someone will be very thankful.

1090  Economy / Speculation / Re: an easy way to turn people away from bitcoin.. on: April 11, 2013, 04:56:04 AM
and a long slow slide down

I don't think so. I think the correction is over in two days.
1091  Economy / Speculation / an easy way to turn people away from bitcoin.. on: April 10, 2013, 10:56:35 PM
... is to cause high instability in its fiat value, by repeatedly dumping and buying.

At least for now since services and goods are priced in fiat.
I am already reading the bad press... Google news for "bitcoin" and see.

OTOH I believe this can only slow down the pace of mass adoption. It's cryptocurrencies' destiny to prevail over other archaic forms of money.

What does not kill you...
1092  Economy / Speculation / Re: BULL TRAP = SELL and Minimize loss! on: April 10, 2013, 10:35:57 PM
I believe that one Manipulator with deep pockets has decided to do two tree shakes in a row - and during both of them he has bought back for profit around 135$.
1093  Economy / Speculation / Re: How does it feel to have sold < $120? on: April 10, 2013, 08:56:41 PM
Yes I am baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack. Grin Grin Grin

Dude, albeit I think the shitstorm's got another 2 days to go, you are my favourite troll.
1094  Economy / Speculation / Re: Balls of steel on: April 10, 2013, 08:26:34 PM
Grow some.

Welcome to Bitcoin, hold on to your seats.

+1

And even if I ever end up in a loss of purchasing power when compared to fiat (which in my case will happen under 19$), thanks to all the price swings and the speculation talks about this awesome internet money for becoming my primary source of entertainment for the last few months.

Although I dream of a future where I can really just pay for everything with bitcoins. Or whatever altcurrency will replace them, for what matters. And stick it up the arse of those corrupted bankers.
1095  Economy / Speculation / Criminal ddos in progress? on: April 10, 2013, 05:02:44 PM
BitcoinCharts --> "502 bad gateway" 2 times out of 3
BitcoinTalk --> randomly times out on me
Gox --> massive API lag and price dropping quickly

It looks to me like the pattern we saw before:

1. rogue trader rents botnet for Ddos
2. rogue trader starts his Gox bots to dump and bring price down and lag time up quickly
3. rogue trader starts botnet to ddos both BitcoinTalk and BitcoinCharts
4. people panic sell
5. rogue trader buys it all
6. rogue trader profits.

Your thoughts on it?
1096  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer - MtGoxUSD wall movement tracker on: April 10, 2013, 04:03:11 PM
getting a welfare payment from the government tomorrow and the whole thing is going into btc

Which means you are using taxpayers' money to buy bitcoins and you spend your time here instead of looking for a job.

There's very little to brag about it. IMO.

Take a day off your keyboards and get out Grin the rise will continue in 1-2 days.

1099  Economy / Speculation / Re: the FUD campaign started on: April 05, 2013, 01:07:24 PM
FUD is working. the masses are going to get their information from news, they don't have time to research this and that.
the illuminati is working with the press to destroy bitcoin, we can't do anything now.

I don't think the Russian mafia cares of the FUD, nor do the corrupted Chinese diplomats. Because so far, Bitcoin as a money laundering method works wonders.

While money laundering is a questionable/despicable use, I speculate that in short term the price will be sustained by it, thus counterbalancing the bad press effect - and geez we got loads more bad press today  Undecided

In full fairness I'm worried with MP's rants about bitcoin code being immature, protocol being weak and its developers wasting time in inept political discussions instead of fixing stuff.

I'm kinda worried that, somehow, he is right about it.
The guy's not a saint at all and he has his own manipulative reasons to say what he says.... but the points he made are quite convincing to me.
