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

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.

So, you are saying that you did not sell too many, this time?    Tongue

I ran out of BTC on GDAX 2 days ago at 7147. It would be nice to buy back .01 BTC for 68XX. However, the majority of my holdings are parked in my Trezor. So the benefit of being able to buy back less than 1% of my portfolio for a few bucks cheaper would pale in comparison to the larger loss in value to my overall portfolio. Besides, I just got a new computer with a GTX 1070. I'll be able to increase my portfolio little by little mining shitcoins.  Smiley Maybe mine BTG, when it gets released.

I was thinking of moving a little bit more BTC to Gdax, but I'm too busy playing with my new computer to be bothered making micro trades on Gdax.

O.k.  Well at least you did not run out, but you did make some choices.

Currently, I have put enough value on exchanges to sell up to $13,500-ish, and my sell orders are already set up to that amount, but if the BTC price starts getting close to that amount, or even close to $10k, I am going to have to move some more BTC onto exchanges because I do not want to get into any kind of position that I am NOT sticking with my plan and what I believe to be the best thing to do, which is to sell incrementally as the price goes up and to buy incrementally as the price goes down without ever running out of either bitcoins or cash for whichever direction the price goes.

Accordingly, it is my opinion which I have attempted to put into practice that we have to be prepared for the extremes.. and maybe we cannot be prepared for all extremes; however, the more extremes that we are prepared for then the easier it will be to adjust and accommodate smaller extremes.
