Nice one

Bitcoin: a digital currency with known & limited supply, an open global network, and not controlled by politicians.

US Dollar: a digital currency with unknown & unlimited supply, a highly restricted territory-based network, and controlled by politicians. Which will win, longterm?

The one that can be controlled will win.

10,000 or so years of human history prove you wrong, but since when does a troll concern himself with facts?

Oh, come on! Cardano? What the hell is that shit?

Just look at that beautiful, textbook perfect pump and dump chart.

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/cardano/#charts

Did you fall for it?  Grin

Perfect indeed. Reminds me a lot to IOTA: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/iota/

A friend of mine fall on the IOTA shit. He didn't listen. He is still bagholding.

I reckon most bitcoiners baghold a pet shitcoin or 2 for shitz n giggles.
Though most probably won't admit to it in this thread.
(well I won't anyway... and besides it's OT, though that hasn't really been an issue lately.)

I regard it as my patriotic duty to sell bcash lol into the pump over the next few days.  The best way to fight these fraud monkeys is to make fraud more expensive.
I still get occasional gigglefits that I managed to dump the lot almost at the top. Several years of living expenses, dumped in my lap, for almost free.

I am using this small margin short as a hedge against an ugly crash.
I'm already long with all my stash. No leveraged margin. Actual btc. Long to the moon.

Is it mathematically viable? If the price goes down you make money, yes, but if it goes up do you make more than you lose on the short, only to make a new short higher up and repeat?

BTC as a payment method has almost never existed. It filled a niche for mid size grey market payments, that is about it. The idea of using it to buy coffee or houses was pushed by the incompetent/collusive.

It has worked very well for me over the past few years of traveling the globe. Sometimes I cannot understand how the plebes spend money in foreign countries. Do they go to the airport currency exchange all the time and get reemed on the rate?

Exchanges in thailand are actually quite reasonable, at least with danish currency. Get around 5 to 1 vs the official 5.15 to 1 rate. How do you go about using bitcoin when traveling?

As you suspect, it's necessary to prop it up as bitcoin rises, otherwise what you gain on a dip, you lose on a climb. That's what I call babysitting or nursing. One good way to go about it is the 2J-ladder, which in a nutshell means to sell on the way up (make your short larger) and buy on the way down (make it smaller, profiting a bit).

The alternative is to just set up a largish insurance as a one-off expense and forget about it until it's worth redeeming. This is much easier on the nerves and doesn't require that much labor. However, there are issues with this brutal approach: you need to close it (on a loss) as soon as bitcoin rises too much, and reopen it higher (so a bit of monitoring and labor is required after all); it doesn't pay off with small profits when decreasing the size; and finally, it should be done near a maximum to start with. If we were that good at spotting maxima, life would be easier, wouldn't it? But then, the very point of such a hedge would be moot.

Bitcoin Dominance at 44% now. At this rate it could reach 50% before retesting the last bottom. The carnage on the alts is being brutal.

Wouldn't it be easier to just sell a small percentage of your stash, buy lower if it drops and eat the loss if it goes up?

For several reasons, I like this solution less. There's much more friction involved in selling/buying real btc. Furthermore, I don't like holding more fiat than I need for ordinary expenses. But above all, this would create a series of taxable events that I want to avoid.

Shitcoiners need to face a hard lesson, so they learn that the true value of something isn't because "Well it's valuable because it went up." That's penny stock hopium bullshit.
