And I was thinking Ver accepted the fiasco of his BU project. Now he will try to sabotage segwit: https://www.dashforcenews.com/bitcoin-com-to-dump-segwit2x-roger-ver-might-help-nchain-block-segwit/
Pride, greed and envy are the forces that drive this lunatic. Angry

I followed that link, then listened to https://soundcloud.com/heryptohow/roger-ver-on-craig-wrights-the-future-of-bitcoin-speech. I must say that he has a fair point regarding scaling. I would agree with him, but I certainly don't like the prospect of less decentralisation due to more expensive node tech.

I guess it's down to a choice between two compromises.

Either way, I really think bitcoin is going to split much like Ethereum did.



edit: the only way to avoid a split that I can think of is to accept Segwit2x for now, then get consensus for much bigger block size over the next year...

Problem with Segwit2x is that they are pushing the for block increase soon after Segwit activation. If everything goes according to the plan, the August 1 split will only result in a minor split with those who won't signal for Segwit no matter what. However, there will be the risk for a more substantial split come mid November when the 2M blocks come into play.

That too, yes. But I even a 90/10 or 80/20 split on August 1st will be significant enough to put Bitcoin as a store of value into question. Just watch as Dash, Litecon, Ether etc get heavily hedged.

it started to fall right after you two posted..  Cheesy

ok, i put my buy order for fun at 2115 [testing how it feels catching falling bear Smiley]

seems like a good buy yeah there's a bounce each time a bottom is tested then drop continues
I was filled later in the night (finex). added one more lower and now i have another order at 2010.
Taking only small positions, because I know its bearish now and it can go deep below 2000. But in the past, I learned hard way not to short bitcoin, so im jumping in front of bears now Cheesy making tiny grid here.

If you do have fiat, set sub 2000 bids up.  I did a week ago.

Can't see it holding all the way to the 1st at this rate whatever happens.  And if Segwit signalling doesn't look close at the end of the month it will get messier still; you may be looking at today's price with a wistful nostalgic sigh.

Note:  been away, and about to head off again to where it's light until midnight. However, I'm very happy with the WO survival...  and congrats to infofront for being brave enough to take on the thread. Right man for the job IMHO.

Keep buying! Downside is very limited. We'll see >10000 by the end of this year.

If you think that, then you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about and you're being bamboozled. Roger Ver has absolutely zero credibility when it comes to technicalities, and CW is a scammer. Both have fundamental misunderstanding of SegWit and scaling in general. What their actual agenda is, besides centralization/corporate takeover, is debatable.

I guess it's down to a choice between two compromises.
It's a choice between an actual improvement and one that does nothing besides give a little throughput and centralization.

edit: the only way to avoid a split that I can think of is to accept Segwit2x for now, then get consensus for much bigger block size over the next year...
Again, you have no idea what you're talking about. Segwit2x, aka FrankenSegwit, with their ever changing proposal wants to do a flag day fork in November this year.

If you do have fiat, set sub 2000 bids up.  I did a week ago.

Can't see it holding all the way to the 1st at this rate whatever happens.  And if Segwit signalling doesn't look close at the end of the month it will get messier still; you may be looking at today's price with a wistful nostalgic sigh.
You think that the current movements are entirely related to Segwit and BIP 148 / Segwit2x?

Take any advice here with a bit of salt. There are some users like Lauda who are well known for manupulating people to rob their money.

Nothing breathtaking here, business as usual in Bitcoinland. Greedy and overstretched margin longs will get liquidated and their bitcoins expropriated really cheap. Potential HF is a good panic fuel and is quite handy for the purpose of market manipulation.

I've had the same problem with shorting, I think I only won once or twice - I now just tend to buy at various points where I think its the bottom and wait it out (non spread betting)

August 1st it is safest to have your bitcoins off of the exchange in a wallet.

Some people may have figured out that it's also "safe" to have your money on the exchange in dollars.

I think August 1st will be anticlimactic.
