Let's fast-forward a bit.

It's May 2018. Bitcoin's price has just crashed from USD $42,000 down to $29,000.

It's September 2018. Bitcoin crashes from $87,000 to $48,000.

It's January 2019. Bitcoin crashes from $105,000 to $63,000.

You think this dip is hard? Just wait.

What the forum needs is the option to restrict posting in moderated topics to an activity level set by the topic starter. This would at least require spam accounts to build up activity first and thus make the ignore button meaningful.

I wonder if Adam would be agreeable to a script that would auto-delete posts from users below a certain post count...

good idea imo!

I'm not sure that would work too well.

NotLambchop has made 7480 posts, but look at the shit he posted.

Good morning, gentlemen.  Still at it I see?

About 40 percent of bitcoin is held by perhaps 1,000 users

Got any data to go with your wild assertion?

Not that I think you're _wrong_, mind you. I just think you're spouting nonsense. I bet you never questioned where you heard that 'statistic'. amirite?

Bloomberg is the source.
I feel they are trustworthy.

^ from same fishwrap https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-01-17/virtual-currencies-seen-as-evolving-threat-by-u-s-treasury

Treasury is working with the Internal Revenue Service examiners to review 100 registered digital currency providers as well as others that have not registered, Sigal Mandelker said in prepared testimony to the Senate Banking Committee on Wednesday. The department is also working with the Justice Department to pursue money laundering cases.

From the article:

Quote
Ordinary investors are at an even greater disadvantage in smaller digital currencies and tokens. Among the coins people invest in, bitcoin has the least concentrated ownership, says Spencer Bogart, managing director and head of research at Blockchain Capital. The top 100 bitcoin addresses control 17.3 percent of all the issued currency, according to Alex Sunnarborg, co-founder of crypto hedge fund Tetras Capital. With ether, a rival to bitcoin, the top 100 addresses control 40 percent of the supply, and with coins such as Gnosis, Qtum, and Storj, top holders control more than 90 percent. Many large owners are part of the teams running these projects.



I had a look at Notlambchop’s post history. Doesn’t look sufficiently literate to be an FT journalist.  More of a word salad type like Roach.  We do have a track record of attracting the mentally ill.  But I’m sure it’s worse elsewhere.

Looking at his posts put things into perspective for me. Three years ago he was predicting $80 coins. Three years later we will think it's the end of the world if bitcoin crashes back to $8000.

Your English is fine. It's your perception that needs work. With so many new participants streaming into the space, a rapid rise was inevitable. As is the correction. As will be the subsequent recovery and the next skyward burst.
Aren't you supposed to be a bear

Of course I'm a bear. Doesn't exclude me from being a bull. Just stop it with the species-ism. Wink
I'm sorry. Sad

For some people it's the end of the world right now already.

I’m always amazed when this comes up: as if a working journalist would have the time, let alone the inclination, to fart out 7000 posts here.

NLC was a professional fudder working  in what was then the main trader’s pit to get the price as low as possible for as long as possible while he or his employer accumulated. He stopped (or rather transformed into other long con characters) when the bear market had run its course.

Well, if the pareto principle applies to bitcoin holdings, then the square root of bitcoin users hold half the coins. And the square root of those people hold half of their coins. Go from there.

Well, you understand. From 10k and lower - the last station of the departing train. Who did not have time - buy as last time in life.

More than 10k does not make sense from my point of view.
