JJG, you sure are are having bad luck with exchanges. Was it your account that brought down Gox? (joking).

I do think that the more active that you are in the cryptospace, the more experiences that you are going to have which likely increase possibilities for issues to come up, whether exchanges or otherwise, so I don't mind sharing some of my experiences to the extent that they may be helpful to others (or myself), which might make the quantity of my issues seem higher in proportion than they are. 

For example, if you completely keep your BTC off exchanges and you do not engage in bitcoin related activities, then likely you will have fewer issues, besides just forgetting how to use bitcoin, perhaps?

It seems that I was sufficiently lucky NOT to lose any money in Gox based on my late 2013 entry into bitcoin, and I was not quite at the point of sending money to GOX before they collapsed in February 2014. 

I registered my account here in late February 2014, after Gox; however, I recall that on other bitcoin threads there were several folks posting about how they were planning to send money to Gox for arbitrage opportunities - and fuck, I suppose that many of those folks would have lost their money, if they had sent it in late 2013 or early 2014.

I guess nobody cares about this: http://money.cnn.com/2018/02/11/investing/lagarde-bitcoin-regulation/index.html

Wow was 8000 the new bottom retest?

Where’s Smokey the Bear?

Maybe that IMF statement was too pathetic sounding?
Why would anybody give a rat's ass about regulation when decentralized exchanges are on the horizon? For the very first time in history regulators won't be able to dictate their rule upon citizens.
Decentralized exchanges need fiat on/offramps too, so they can be choked or leashed by regulation. That's the one issue that still makes me give a ratt's ass.
But wouldn't that be peer to peer also? Ie a private person sending money to another private person through Paypal or SEPA or Swish or whatever. Impossible for any bank or government to connect with a selling or buying of crypto.

Sorry Jay, I wasn't really mocking you, more just commenting on the scandalous, embarrassing and infuriating state of affairs with the exchanges.

O.k.  I take everything meanie back too... and I suppose that we should make up now?





I mean seriously, their business model is almost entirely automated, they are skimming percentages off of BILLIONS...and they can't be bothered to adequately scale or maintain reasonable customer support.

It is really, deeply, unsatisfactory, and I can not wait until we can put these gatekeepers behind us.

Seems like it is going to take a while to compete some of these exchanges out of the market, whether that is the creation of decentralized exchanges or some other remedy to decrease the third party exchange difficulties.

AI = Artificial Intelligence. Means it is fake intelligence.

Means, the real intelligence can still out smart it. Thus humans will control machines for a long time. Up until they are self-replicating, self-repairing, self-sustaining, and self-aware.

Humans are self-replicating, self-repairing, self-sustaining, and self-aware, and we can control them.
I think we can control robots too in the future, after all, they need energy and if we pull the plug they die.

While some blockchain communities have increased on-chain transaction capacity (e.g. blocksize increases), this approach generally degrades the decentralized state of the network and cannot reach the millions of transactions per second the system would generate at world-scale.

We only have to get to the point where machines are better than humans at improving the design of machines. That's when the trend takes off like a rocket. Like a chart of bitcoin in 2017. All bets are off when that day comes.

I went to the gym 6 days a week , 2 hours a day, for 15 years. I was practically an athlete. Until I become chronically ill and lost all the gains before my eyes in 1 year. Overtraining may have let the disease take over, and bad form screwed up my back. Fuck the gym.

Sometimes guys mistake a public gym for a bathhouse and hit on you there or stare at you in the sauna. Even annoys gays.
