no worries, it happens. yea, i was having long term unemployment back in the day, so what little i mined ended up spent pretty quickly, much to the sorrow of my wallet.

why aren't you doing a sig campaign? you'd get a whole bitcoin within a few months, though i don't know how much longer that's gonna be possible.

real life keeps my activity low. only reason i'm active right now is i'm sick with a cold.

Come on BEARS!! Short this shit to the ground! Grin We need more short squeezes!


Sorry about your loss, bones261.  You sold too many, again...    Cry

Maybe sooner or later, you are going to learn the value of HODL!!!!!!!!

i have to agree 100% with this  JJG, because its all I know how to do.....


I am exaggerating a bit too because the fact of the matter is that in the past two years, I have not been HODLing, but I have also come to be more and more comfortable with my BTC sell allocation - even if it adds up to a very large stack of fiat in my coffers...

I think that my point remains that it is much safer to HODL, in the event that you cannot really temper the amount of BTC that you sell and that you cannot live with having a bunch of fiat in reserves that may or may not be possible to buy BTC back in at anywhere near the price that you sold the BTC to accumulate the fiat (stinky fiat, as some folks have been calling it). 

With our latest seemingly non-stopping levels of ATHs (5 days in a row, ish)- and without any kind of meaningful price corrections (10% or more could be a kind of correction? - we did get a flash crash from $7350 to $6700 - which almost could have counted, perhaps), I am actually getting to one of my highest ever BTC/dollar allocation levels, and that is 89% BTC /11% dollars. 

I am o.k with my higher level of dollar allocation even though there could be another irrationally exuberant 1.7x to 2.5x rise in BTC prices  from here (and that would be up to $13k-ish a bit more likely or $19k-ish.. a bit less likely), and I have done some tentative BTC/cash portfolio projections that seem to appear that my level of BTC sales is kind of stabilizing.. so whether that is a problem or not,  if we go to $13k, and then about a 50% or more-ish drop back down to $6k, I wonder if I would feel as if I had sold enough BTC at that particular $13k-ish "top" in order to feel comfort during my BTC buying back?   

A bit of an ongoing personal dilemma for me that I am hoping will just resolve itself without too much stress to me, and perhaps I will "know it when I see it"... but perhaps, not?

a few minutes on here in the morning, at lunch and before bed can add up to a great bonus, but for all i know you have your hand on a dead man's switch 18 hours a day.

What is the standard Lamborghini that people put in their portfolios? The LP500S is a great car, but kind of rare-ish and wonky. Would the Diablo be a standard unit of measurement, or something else?

My quick research shows two current production models: Huracan and Aventador. The others are all older (and thus, no longer brand new.) *edit* seems there's a third one called Centenario, but they only made 20 coupes and 20 roadsters or 40 cars total, all of which have been sold.

Lockdown in Transformers: Age of Extinction is a Black or Dark Grey 2013 Aventador.

I'm thinking the Huracan, even the base model (as that's the lowest priced) is a good place to start. It's still at least 250k USD.

look i'm a hypocrite like everyone else, but this ...

playground insults?

a handful of overly-entitled neckbeards either whiny-ragequit

... alone proves you are no Goebbels.

And you get heated and sweary when others swear at you. Poor quality shilling 2/10.

A fair enough observation. In my defense, I will say only that I try to be civil until treated in an uncivil manner.

But do we have a double standard here? Gavin: "ragequit!" Garzik: "ragequit!" Hearn: "ragequit!" Core devs threaten to quit if the economic majority doesn't toe their line? What else could it be?

Quote
No, you're just as you say a curmudgeon, like Ibian, like roach, like me when I don't control myself.

You don't have any arguments other than 'don't like all this modern stuff'.

Can't say that I follow your reasoning here.

Quote
Or can you account for this assertion

While I believe in BCH's long term prospects, it may be a bumpy ride. Then again, its the only one of the three that can make it through a sudden hashrate drop.

And Bitcoin Gold/GPU can fuck right off.

btc hashrate dropped 40% at first when bch came on. it made it through with slower blocks and higher fees and price went up.

For a brief period. But what if hash winter?

Quote
core devs are running round reassuring users that we can survive a 90% drop in hashrate.

And others are talking about an emergency hard fork to change the mining algorithm.

Quote
@slush is on their side, and something's happening with Francis Pouliot in Canada.
150 min blocks for a few weeks are meh.
hashrate will not decide this

It is not 'a few weeks'. It is 2016 blocks. Lessee... 2016*150 = 302,400 minutes. 5040 hours. 210 days. 7 months. If the minority hashpower chain can maintain that percentage, which is highly doubtful. Miners will likely abandon that chain for one more profitable.

Quote
and why the hate for gold/gpu?
surely you're not threatened?
it's harmless ... surely?

Not hate, but rather disdain. I have been repeatedly accused of supporting 'anything not Core'. I have here a nice opportunity to refute this perception.

Sure, anyone can create whatever they want. But this looks to me to be a simple moneygrab. Good riddance to it.



Is it possible thou dothst not knoweth that of which thou speaketh?

#archaicgrammarnazi

Touche'. I chortled.



But a wildcard that I'm expecting is the implosion of Finex.

What the fuck is this?  A complete conspiracy?  Do you have any evidence at all that this is likely beyond pure speculation that Bitfinex is getting BIG again?

Scam me once, shame on you. Scam me twice, shame on me.

You've looked into their issuance of Tethers, and a fully comfortable with the inherent risks?



without having the real umph of bitcoin - which is that it needs to be difficult to change

You do realize that The SegWit Omnibus Changeset is the single largest surviving change to the Bitcoin protocol ever, right? How do you live through the cognitive dissonance?




Never thought I'd be awarding kudos to Cobra (you know - the person who thinks Satoshi screwed up the white paper), but I enjoyed the following turn of phrase:

Quote
The unthinkable happens. A black swan. The miners are mining B2X, and for some reason.. the market begins valuing B2X higher than BTC. What’s going on? This shouldn’t be happening. The original chain begins dying a painful death, transactions accumulate quickly, and fees become outrageous. It starts to look like 2X has won. You sit there, like a Hillary Clinton supporter on election night wondering how this could have happened.



Someone like to explain to me how a chain valued at $7500 will be sold off enough to be worth less than a chain that futures price at around $1000?  

Working futures markets do not accord one of the branches with an asymmetric advantage over the other. Especially one as egregious as eradicating all tokens on this disadvantaged side altogether. You may want to factor this into your expectations regarding the so-called 'fork tokens'.

Even if not for that, the volume thereof is but a blip compared to the event - rendering it statistically worthless anyhow.




no worries, it happens. yea, i was having long term unemployment back in the day, so what little i mined ended up spent pretty quickly, much to the sorrow of my wallet.

why aren't you doing a sig campaign? you'd get a whole bitcoin within a few months, though i don't know how much longer that's gonna be possible.

Self respect is independent of economic circumstance.
