I have a bank account and some credit cards with just enough to pay the bills. The rest are in crypto. It's more convenient and you do build up a good credit rating or credit score if you pay off all your cards or keep utilization below 5%.

When you guys talk about credit utilization.... do you mean something like deferring payments instead of paying the bill at end of month?

Never knew anyone that would do that. Looks suicidal considering the extreme interest. I would expect someone having to resort to that type of credit to be on the verge of bankruptcy already. Same with the people leasing or buying cars on credit (although I know some of those).

Utilization (for credit rating purposes) is usually the balance at the time of the statement or whenever the bank reports it to the CRA. So you can have some utilization (under 10% preferably) and pay it off without interest within the grace period, 20-30 days.

Edit: I drive a leased car. With interest rates near 0% it makes sense for a couple of reasons - opportunity cost and depreciation risk.

We have (barely) broken the downward channel which has dominated since $17k.   Even if the pump doesn’t hold, the channel is now vulnerable.  It could be the end of the bear market.

I have a hard time thinking of this pullback from a monster pump as anything close to a bear market.
This is a fair point. You are still a reprehensible cloneclown, but what you said there is entirely reasonable.

Well..looks like everyone has been eating their Wheaties this morning....good...must be time for some game theory. Btfd's.

http://trust.fehradvice.com/
This is amazing.

I got some good advice once. Treat everyone the best you can when you first meet, and after that treat them how they treat you. In this particular game, that worked great.

Edit: I AM COPYCAT!
Brilliant intro into Game Theory. Wish schools sought out such ways to introduce students to concepts.

I'm mostly a copycat too. Nice to everybody I meet, then just adapt to their behaviour. There haven't been many cases where I'd cut someone off entirely for being a massive twat. Arguing with people can be tons of fun though, not to mention the intellectual exercise, so I don't mind hostile encounters as long as they don't get physical.

I actually love how the internet makes it much easier for people who feel disillusioned with their environment to find nudges towards a better future. Based on my environment I should be an envious bumbling idiot who complains about evil rich and successful people, not to mention overly arrogant and ignorant. Really glad I got into games and the internet at a young age, since I would've most certainly lost my drive otherwise.

As long as it is interest free it is ok for me. Credit cards are convenient. But if I had to pay ANY interest I would resort to other payment options. It's no wonder they keep bombarding with the "great" conditions of their payment deferrals. The irony is that I would give NO credit to anyone that really was willing to pay that outrageous interest (looks really desperate and incapable of repayment).

ABout the leased cars... if you can do it with a negligible interest rate or you can deduct it as a business expense that is a very different thing. If you did it because you were UNABLE to pay it upfront and instead opted to pay outrageous interest fees over a few years that is again a sign of walk to the path of bankruptcy, it's those ppl who I was referring to. Although the credit card thing looks much more critical to me.

I use credit cards only for their perks (cashback) and to prop up my credit score. Hate that game but it's unavoidable. Pay in full before due date.

Most of car lease "deals" are horrible and lots of people tend to overpay because they focus only on the monthly amount, allowing dealers to screw them on down-payment and interest. These days car sales in the US are tanking (cars as in "not SUVs or trucks") so with a little bit of effort I can get a sweet discount and/or inflated residual value, drive it for 3 years, and leave the manufacturer holding the bag on depreciation. And keep my bitcoins too.

I've been in the debt spiral too. Not a fun time. Some expensive lessons have been learned.

If you have good credit, you can easily find offers of 12-18 months at 0% interest.
When bitcoin began tanking last month I opened one of these. I did the same in 2014.

Sometimes I seriously wonder if people have some unconscious desire to be poor and mediocre. I just cannot fathom how somebody could wish to be more than they are without trying to work towards that goal with even the tiniest increments.

This bothers me a lot about people. I can't get why they are not willing to change up their lifestyle and mindset to reach the goals they desire. My theory on why so far, is that they are easier satisfied and they are happy enough with things staying like the way they are. Therefore don't feel the need to work on oneself. Some people just don't need much in life and are perfectly fine being mediocre. It's something that I sometimes I admire in people, the simplicity of being satisfied with less.

But why would they complain so much if they were satisfied? And why would depression and suicide rates both be climbing?

After BTC dumped so hard, it was just a matter oft time until BCH started trying to overtake again. It is rather probable that this pump is just starting and could geht BCH close to 1:1 for BTC with current weakness and high amount oft free capital!

I thought this was a really good comparison: Striking similarity between Ellen DeGeneres' 2018 "Bitcoin Explanation" and 1994 Today's Show "What is the Internet, Anyway?"

Perhaps 2018 is bitcoin's 1994.

Hopefully not to the tee. If the timeline was the same we'd be quite far off from mainstream adoption. Wouldn't mind seeing it a bit earlier than that. Wasn't the internet fairly unpopular until 2012ish and on? Don't really remember when it exploded anymore since I kept doing my thing unphased.

Now that we have the internet, BTC will explode onto the mainstream much faster. Every year now will be like 5 pre-internet-ubiquity years.

That is a very good question, but we cannot just assume that it's because the whole population of the poor and mediocre are all depressed and suicidal deep inside. Even smart people seem to be more likely to be depressed and doubt one self. Because they tend to live more in their head and overthink things.

With the arrival of the information age I think we have produced way more smart people than ever before. The internet has become such a powerful tool to educate yourself, anybody with an cellphone has a tremendous amount of knowledge in their pocket. Too bad many people choose to not use it to it's fullest potential. So that could be one of the reasons why depression and suicide rates are climbing. I'm not sure I have not done research on this matter.
