  So probably, the more money (in this case bitcoins) you accumulate, the more prudent it will be to convolute your answers, if any, to those kinds of inquiries.

JJG must be hyper-rich Tongue

Surely, I am attempting to use logic, and I am talking hypothetically to say that the more bitcoin (or otherwise wealth) that you have, then likely the less that you are going to say about it.

So in that regard, don't I say a lot here?  So wouldn't the proper conclusion be that I don't have very much?  Unless I am using reverse psychology, to throw you off my tracks?   Tongue Tongue

Why So Many talking about BTC in here ..... again as youre walls of text are here.... there not about youre personal pocket.... maybe percentage but percentage of what.... i think less in here talk about there personal wealth, and i think  Thats allways best

Surely any of us can say what we believe is good to talk about or not, yet in the end, there seems to be quite a large amount of tolerance latitude for topics.  If you want to personalize your presentation, then that is your choice. 

Regarding percentages of what?  Why would it matter, if we talk about buying at x increments or restructuring our buy/sell orders?  and, sure even some folks buy or sell and go 100% "in" or "out", but even that might not be understandable unless they provide details of their other investments (finances) or even their timeline, risk tolerance, view of the future or cashflow details.

Anyone concerned that Gemini seems to have raised their trading fees 4x in the past day on top of about a 2x increase from last year.  Seems to add up to about 10x increase in their fees.  Here is a thread that was started about the issue.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3248495.msg33826905#msg33826905

I am kind of wondering what Gemini's goal is?  It would seem that if they wanted to create more liquidity, then they would keep the fees lower, but perhaps they are attempting to become the Cadillac of exchanges, and I wonder if other exchanges will follow to raise their trading fees? or if Gemini will attempt to serve more of a niche clientelle who are willing to pay higher trading fees?

I would pay higher fees than on other exchanges if there is higher return. Whatever that might be... .

High return could be considered to be more security and more volatility, but I don't think that purposefully creating higher volatility by removing liquidity is a way to increase user confidence in a platform. 

I have no real idea of their motivation at this point, except that they are attempting to go down the path of prestigious pricing, and that does not seem to be a good move based on their current market position based on current trade volume (but hey what do I know?  Administrators/owners there would know their trade numbers better than my looking at what I believe to be their relatively mediocre trade volume).

Maybe it is just because of the low volume... . In that case, they might be followed by the others.

There is a bit of a contradiction in the service that Gemini offers, because they are increasing their trading fees, but their fees for getting  in and out seem to be lower than the average (see these Gemini transfer fees)

I don't think that you should distort the truth of what he actually said, in this instance.

What he said is that "more babys are dying," and that is weird enough, so to change what he is saying into "sausages" actually trivializes the stupid thing that he already said.

The guy is a psycho, and his real words and the way that he said them are proof enough about his current nutjob status.

Sometimes I misread, indeed. But isn 't the low (appears zero)transfer fees, confirming the lack of voume motive for increasing trade fees?

What do babies dying have to do with cryptocurrency ?!??

I'm so confused right now.

Beginning to genuinely suspect the mental state of Roger Ver is rapidly deteriorating.

In this instance, it is probably better to link the actual video with the audio, because the guy is a fucking nutjob.. and bordering on desperate psychopath..    Likely Xhomerx10 has the original video/audio clip, but I am sure it is available .  

Edit 1:  O.k.  here is the tweet again.

https://twitter.com/bitcoinrick/status/981233235635195904


And here is the part where Roger says that more babies are dying because of the lack of economic freedom that core has caused.  you can fast-forward to 11:00 if you don't want to hear all of Rogers drivel; however, it may be good to hear a bit of the context from the cueing up at about minute 9:00.

Edit 2:  Last of the V8s beat me to it... I am a slow poe... Cry Cry
