Or people are flocking to dollars to pay maintenance on their Lambos. Those things are pricey, get a used Porsche.

More seriously, I remember in 2008 when EVERYTHING was melting down, even gold. I had some cash stashed and that allowed me not to panic sell. Which turned out to be a good idea since the market tripled. But live within your means now for awhile, don't keep buying Lambos.

This man speaketh the truth, dont put all eggs in a basket unless you Warren Buffet in which case he says its fine and watch it really carefully but he also says dont touch crypto.    Its known as asset allocaiton, never over balance yourself over weighted to one direction in all the various asset types.    Helps to stay afloat in rough seas which I think are a reasonable prospect

People say crypto is volatile but its partly born of a desire to counter the upcoming failure of world reserve currency which tldr could be a big game changer.    I think its all relative, I note that overall markets are selling off a bit recently.   The big deal to watch is Dollar strength, google dxy because thats the denominator to all prices even virtual

For crying out loud!

I go to sleep and then work for a couple of hours and come back here and there is 22 pages to catch up.
Doesn't anyone here have a life?

Says the guy who's just wasted his life reading the last 22 pages....

Nope haven't read them all yet, still have 19 to go, I might just skip them.
It's been a beautiful day here and for a change I was up early enough to catch half of it. So I'm in a really good mood and might just do something useful instead.

It's something I need to embrace.  I might even take on a job or 2, if crypto is not going to bother entertaining me with up moves.  Still a beautiful day here, maybe a bike ride, to squeeze some of the crypto bubbles from the blood.  Or was it blood being squeezed from the crypto bubbles?  Not mine, anyway.

Pretty much. What kept me going in 2008 was going down to the deposit box and running my hands through the small stash of silver and gold and making noises like a pirate. Aarggh and all that. It helped me to remember that I have things and will be ok.

If things go boom this time I will stroke my tools and such knowing that they go with me and can always bring value. That's the important thing in life, be able to create value and you'll be ok.

Why would anyone come back to Bitcoin...?  So we can wake up tomorrow to $50 fees because one group of miners can manipulate the fee market that much.  I'm sure the trash alt markets (which are most) will be flushed, but the "real" alt markets are still strong and will continue to grow stronger during this shit show.

Bitcoin needs to scale to at least make it more costly and more risky for those who want to spam pool for profit.

I'm getting all types of calls "Why is Bitcoin going down?"... I just remind them that $50 fees are NOT the future and this is the markets slow reaction to the shit we dealt with in December 2017.

This reminds me of those sneaky kids in school who get in a few unseen punches of their own during someone else's fights and then runs back into the shadows.

Fees seem to be down quite a bit along with the overall transaction backlog. 31k transactions in the backlog, way down from the 200k+ a few weeks ago. Maybe Segwit is working.

Back in 2014 I bought a small copy of the wall street bull and a gilded bitcoin coin and a wooden plate to mount it on. Never got around to finish it.
Maybe it's time to do it now and make it a house altar where I can make small offerings to the bitcoin bull.

I see everyone keeps looking for news or blaming some FUD or the other for bitcoin's price drop.

If this was about something having to do with bitcoin you would see the bitcoin price drop and alts remaining fairly stable.

This is about major market sentiment. A cycle that has been seen throughout history and repeated itself once again. Big money moved in, the price started to climb so everyone and their brother started buying so they could get those sweet 1000% gains that they were promised. Then we topped out and the price started going down. This is not what we were promised!?! I was supposed to be able to retire by buying bitcoins at $10k! What's happening!?! I better get out of this thing I have no clue about quickly! Sell! Sell! Sell!

The weak hands that have no clue will leave. But the big money will stay. They like volatility. We just fed the Wall Street beast the money of a bunch of ignorant n00bs and they will want more. They will play the market. They will get their money.

That is why we hodl. We understand that we cannot time the market. We do not spend every minute of every day watching the patterns and charts and use our hundreds of millions to move the market. We sit back and let others do that for us and we hold out.

All of my friends thought I was smart for buying so early. The smart part was not buying early, but not selling when the market was scary.

This. As a bitcoin spending advocate I had to finally stop spending bitcoins this past fall. I cracked open my credit card which I had used maybe a hand full of times in the past 5 years.

I can go back to spending bitcoins again because the fees are so low.

Yeah, let's all move in Bcash, it'll be so much better to scale bitcoin with bigger blocks size instead of smaller transaction sizes. Tall tales, bigger lies and bigger blocks is what makes bitcoin great, just ask satoshi. He was at Davos pumping Ether, honest he was.

No, my friend. Realist. When people are telling me their 16 year old nephews are making easy money trading crypto, it means the market is way overbought.
