What if Elon Musk just committed the perfect murder?

That would really be something ..... movie material

What an epic opportunity lost to send a Bitcoin paperwallet beyond Mars inside the Tesla's glove box compartment.

"Buy bitcoin" looks very good on google trends since yesterday.

Change the scale to 90days, and you will see nothing really changed.

Not need to think that far in time... Just imagine the shock when I go and redeem the private key myself.

It would be way more fun to redeem it after the first people try to get the key themselves though. Sad

Hardly relevant to BTC, but an interesting topic IMO.

(snip)
How hard were they trying though? I recall reading a paper from one of the Ivy League universities that concluded that perfect pitch could not be learned in adulthood. And the argumentation, as well as the experiment itself, was lackluster to say the least.
Really hard. As in everything that can possibly be done within legal and ethical means. This is study time on google if that's not enough.
Perfect pitch appears to be dependent on both a genetic trait and a development window. Nature and nurture. The genetic trait is probably present in something like 20% of the population. The window of opportunity for actually having perfect pitch during adulthood roughly coincides with the window for native language learning.

Native speakers of tone languages (Chinese language/dialects, Thai etc) have a higher than average percentage of adults with perfect pitch. This is probably due to children being exposed to more-or-less fixed pitch sillables while that part of the brain is developing.

There are several studies that come to similar conclusions. I've read a few (say, at least a couple). I can't be bothered to look them up, but big G can help.
Yeah, early development is important for all sorts of things. Thing is, we lived in tribes for millions of years and that's the environment we are evolved for. Modern life is completely different, which makes it likely that we are doing things to our kids that are harmful to them. That's why it's so important to study these things. And not just for kids, but for all of us.
I've actually been thinking on and off about what I could do if I ever had kids during their infant periods. I don't buy that there's no development taking place just because they can't recall any memories. They don't know language, so at the very least there's a viable chance that infant memories get triggered by nonverbal cues that become irrelevant as one grows older. I'm quite curious as to whether or not one could instill synesthesia in a child by playing a pitch and associating it with a colour in some way.

I'm also not convinced that languages can only be picked up in childhood at a native level, at least not unequivocally.
I have a heavy accent whenever I don't speak English for a while, but given enough time I manage to fool natives. And I've also managed to memorize a single pitch that I can recall at will without reference, which is an experiment that I'd like to return to some day to see if I can get that up to a level where I could write down music as I hear it. It's time consuming and tedious as hell, but it seems possible to me.
Simply being there is the biggest thing you can do at that stage. Fathers emit pheromones that likely has a positive influence on their development. That and make sure the mother is as relaxed and happy as reasonably possible.

A tribe is essentially one big family. It is a place of safety and protection from the outside world. Emulating that in the form of a traditional family seems like a good move.

The bolded part: That is the hard part Cheesy

*sigh* no. IQ tests are simply pattern recognition. There is nothing cultural about it.

Pattern recognition has nothing cultural about it? I disagree. Try a "spot the pattern" competition in the Amazon forest against a local. Yes, you can use your calculator if needed (hint: it won't be).

This kind of pattern.

Im bearish because of futures expiry in 5 days on 14 Feb. Something to keep in mind.

How do you know and why does that make a difference?

I think in Q1 we will see one more descent and updating of the lower level 6k/5k. I do the forecast proceeding from a news background, it changes for the better, but still weak. As Japan imposes taxes and in additives ahead new year according to east calendar (Korea, Japan, China and some other countries) which will be on February 16 and 2/3 weeks will last. I think during this period there will be a fixing of all Asia. And only in Q2 insignificant growth to moving average will begin, to the region of the 11-12th and there a course there will be 2 months.

News:
Japan Crypto Investors Face Tax of Up to 55%
Cryptocurrency investors in Japan may face up to 55% of capital gain tax, Bloomberg reports. While winnings on stocks and foreign currencies are taxed around 20 percent, Japan’s levy on profits from virtual money runs from 15 percent to 55 percent, the top amount being 40 million yen ($365,000). Japan ruled last year that that capital gains on these transactions are a form of "miscellaneous income," investors are now required to declare their profits in annual tax filings due Feb. 16-March 15.
https://en.insider.pro/topnews/2018-02-09/japan-crypto-investors-face-tax-55/

The Japanese cryptocurrency investors faced taxes to 55%
The Japanese national tax agency decided to strike a cryptocurrency mania: now the people earning on digital currencies have to pay high taxes. Last year legislators established that the capital gain on similar transactions is "other income" so investors are obliged to specify the profit in annual tax declarations from February 16 to March 15.

Meantime down to 7,000 transactions in mempool. Either people have stopped trading or segwit is making a difference.

Any hold above $8k for the next 3 days, or a small dip below and then quickly back up above $8k, would be extremely bullish.

Last time it breached the 200EMA within 9 weeks of ATH was in 2011 and it wasn't as deep.

True. I'm surprised we got there so soon tbh. Also bullish.

Well volume is lower than ideal.

There's no goddam spam attack to coincide with Roger shenanigans - inefficient scammer co-ordination.

There's a push to measure not tx's but outputs https://opreturn.org/ which are up a lot.

I am glad to see that those every day 10-20% drops are no more. Clearly the big weak-hand-cleansing from the other day was necessary to achieve a steady and lasting growth towards 20K.
