What would be of crypto without all its nonsense drama?

They probably don't realize it or care, but it's people like Roger, CSW, and Mcafee that are hindering mass adoption. They are putting the face of crazy on Bitcoin and crypto. Average Joes don't want to be associated with such nonsense.

Some of the regulars on this thread are still holding their Bcash. If I were one of them, I would get rid of that shit on the next pump.
The writing is on the wall now.

I still have around 30% of my initial BCH but... the "next pump" never came!

No big regrets here. It was "free" money anyways.

three people are not "hindering mass adoption." Grin if they could, bitcoin is totally fucked and has no chance of mass adoption. let's be real. average joes don't know or care who roger or CSW are. mcafee was a beloved wingnut long before he got involved with crypto.

nothing is hindering adoption besides market cycles---hype took a dive, get-rich-quick top buyers need to be punished---and time. bitcoin is a brand new type of asset, still in beta, with pretty terrible UX for non-tech savvy people. expecting mass adoption in that context is just plain silly. rome wasn't built in a day....

Lets not be the pot that calls the kettle black. Dont forget about us traders (or even exchange frontpages) posting memes about rockets and trains and moons and HODLOR, and how the braindead expert forecasts on how "bitcoin will pump to $xxxxxxxx". This whole thing has been one crazy flaming trolljob.

I doubt Amber is as young as she looks (haven't bothered to check, actually). Out of my ass, I reckon JPM wouldn't put a millennial in that position. Unless... a playground seat granted by a high-ranking mentor...? No. No. She's not hot, either. I'd pick Meltem over Amber any day, apparent age notwithstanding.

You are right, she is 35: http://fortune.com/40-under-40/amber-baldet-31/

Ok then, so she's not a millennial. But a higher age doesn't mean you know anything at all about a technology that's merely a few years old.

Perianne Boring, anyone?

In other news, it looks like the BCash camp is imploding from within:

Bcash, LMAO

What's your critique of Perianne Boring?

She's President & Founder of Digital Chamber of Commerce & runs the DC Blockchain Summits.

Although the last one was fairly well occupied by Wall Street, I think she's a major pioneer, woman or not.

Bcash is for babies ... it was self-evident from the beginning but it took Roger to spell it out, angrily.

Ha!  All the Bcash babies are dying!

Pro Tip:  It's not because of BTC

Bitcoin has to be more usable, integrated and seamless basically.   End of the beginning is the phrase I agree with.   You will know the mainstream is in on this market when its just part of a wider menu they are actually using bitcoin underneath whatever product is handling them as customers.    All the hype is nonsense, an over focus, the irony would be success coming with the opposite and BTC just being part of a plethora of genuine new era technical advancement.
 Just like I have very little idea how my remote control works for the TV, I just know it changes the channel with very little effort.   Sorry if there is genius going on underneath my entertainment and lounging on the sofa eating food watching junk TV but thats the mainstream they dont care about your product innovations, its just about you serving them.  

I dont see it as a consumer brand name, unfortunately there is no copyright on the name as BCH has demonstrated.   I see BTC as something that'd be on an enabled feature list, like HD or 4k on a TV and people will have to demand that technology be included correctly (not some poor copy) .  




I think 7481 is a price point between the recent daily high and low that will show confidence to continue or if the market requires more confirmation.

The fact that Vitalik called out Craig Wright makes me want to buy my first ethereums with the bcash I still have left.


If you recall, Vitalik is repeating an earlier theme of his.. from May 2016 I believe.  Remember when Wright was claiming to be Satoshi, and Vitalik was one of the earliest of crypto persons to describe a fairly straight-forward process in which Wright could sign a transaction, and the fact that Wright was choosing a more convoluted method of proof had demonstrated, for Vitalik, that Wright was engaging in purposeful deception rather than really being Satoshi.  I think Vitalik said it at the conference in which the announcement had been made on the same day and Gavin Andressen had been attempting to validate Wright as Satoshi.

I think this is a clip of Vitalik making that statement at that conference.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qLI3VIHuKU

This reddit post is a nice write up of it.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4hflr3/craig_wrights_signature_is_worthless/d2pvrst/


Quote
...then Vitalik just started taking, and said he'd give his reasoning on why he thinks Craig isn't Satoshi.

He said, Craig has 2 ways to prove himself. The first, and easiest/simplest, being to just sign a unique message and post it publicly so everyone can verify it. The second would be to post some long blog post (that was arguably more complicated to understand than actually verifying some signed text) and only ask a select few to choose a message, show the signature to, and ask to verify. Vitalik then says that this fails basic signaling theory, and thus Craig is not Satoshi. Gavin twerked his head and nodded as if to say, "I see you point. Meh."

The panel session ended right there. The crowd laughed. I laughed. Vitalik laughed. The moderator laughed. The crowd laughed some more. Gavin seemed uncomfortable.

I kind of agree with the point, but here is a counterpoint: Elon Musk (an absolute WS and MSM hero in the last few years) sometimes does say a nonsensical thing or two, but his latest joke was roundly criticized. Why? Because CEO of a company which stock declined 30% and debt was downgraded and is trading at 90c/$ should not make these kind of jokes.
Conclusion: when your stock is hot, everyone ignores a misstep or two, but when it is declining fairly rapidly, you should be a bit more CRAEFUL with what you say, I guess.

TL;DR this is not about bch, Roger or CSW, but rather about nonsensical statements and mass adoption/perception.
