I think bitfinex should be considered a total and complete black market scam artist exhange.

I told you people that every day for the last 4-5 years.  That's one reason I despise bitcoin.  The entire bitcoin market is controlled by a single trader/entity operating on Bitfinex ever since the price was $200.  Said entity naked shorted the market during the halving in huge volume and could not cover his shorts, then Bitfinex mysteriously claims they were hacked right after and stole everyone's bitcoins in order to cover the shorts.  

In order for this entity to operate on Bitfinex, it's 100% required for Bitfinex staff to be in on it, so it's either the Bitfinex owners themselves who control the whole market through fraud, or Bitfinex owners colluding with Chinese mining cartel, or they're issued some type of gag order and it's the ESF or Goldman Sachs or something manipulating the market.  In the GATA archives it was uncovered the ESF attempts to introduce high volatility into the metals markets on purpose to make it seem like a less valid monetary instrument or store of value, so the govt/bankers themselves might even be running the bitcoin pump and dumps for this very reason.

That explanation would only make sense if you believe the govt did not create bitcoin.  If the govt did create bitcoin, it would likely be the ESF propping up their scam to try and lure people into these imaginary, worthless tokens and distract them from sound money (silver or gold).  Either way, the entire bitcoin price is based on Bitfinex fraud.  So the question is:  what is the real price of bitcoin without Bitfinex fraud?  Nobody knows.  They pumped the market via this tether scam, so I imagine it would be lower and somewhere between $200-$3000.

Set a goal in life, figure out how much money you need to do it, and stick to the plan.

When bitcoin breaks 10k again I'm moving to Thailand to become a full-time monger.

 That's pretty generic.  What kind of monger would you like to be?  Fearmonger?

This is a sex thing, if I'm not mistaken..

A sex monger.  Great!!!

Hopefully, the price of BTC will stay above $10k in order that Syke would not have to discontinue his anticipated upcumming bitcoin experiment.

Well, this is still the wild west so to speak.  We're aware of the heavy manipulation and the fundamentals remain.   Don't use bitfinex, maybe don't trade it at all but not being invested at all in BTC isn't an option that I'd consider.

Well.. Most of optimistic holders right there were not expecting bitcoin to break 3.000$ after a dump from 2.980$ to 1.800$ and go as high as 20.000$ 4 months later.

The average optimistic bitcoin projections after we break 3.000$ was 5.000$ for the end of 2018, and we know what happens.. bitcoin goes x4 of that average expectation.

Now also we are in the same situation. A pullback from 20.000$ to 6.000$ Then a try to retest the 20.000$ and go above in next weeks.

Again the average optimistic holders are praying for a price of 20.000$ again before end of 2018. So maybe we are going to make x4 of the average expectation before end of 2018 For a bitcoin price of 80.000$.

When/If bitcoin gonna hit 80.000$ the very big hedge funds and the richest persons are going to enter the market. This gonna coincide with a bitcoin pullback from 80.000$ to 40.000$ only because this time there are the richest persons in the world  willing to buy bitcoin after bitcoin going to be the number one on internet trends from here. So.. its going to be a very big support, and from there the real big boom gonna happend ( duo to the amazing big big bang money coming) and take bitcoin price from 40.000$ to 500.000$ before end of 2019 And then bitcoin officially recognised as the new GOLD and all the powers gonna submit to the new worldwide king.

Thats my projection.

I know it sounds like impossible, but with bitcoin all is possible. He goes from cents to 20.000$ in 7 Years and you think its impossible he make X25 in 2 years from the 20.000$ registred on december 2017 to december 2019?





I like your way of thinking. Sometimes we are too consumed by the short term charts and miss the big picture. If we keep our faith in what seems impossible now, we will be rewarded sooner or later.

Thank you mate.

We need more positive bull energy.

In the long run, bitcoin from hes creation, was only very bullish in the long run and that are not going to change.

Like you said, our brains are by default focused on the very short term and forget the big term picture wish is very very bullish.

And for my projection, i found it very reasonnable and conservative, but for the ones that are more focused on short term pictures, it feels like mission impossible to get @ 80.000$ @ the end of 2018  And 500.000$ @ the end of 2019.

In the past, bear markets have survived for multiple years. The growth has been concentrated in a few months, which means you really shouldn't miss those. Giving such tight price targets for end of 2018 for example makes me uncomfortable, since the bear market could very easily last until then. However, if the past is any guide, the subsequent growth once it enters the bull phase would be impressive too. Just don't want people to sell in despair if their year end price targets aren't being met.

You are exactly correct - yet, another factor is that the bull market from late 2015 to 2017 took two years to unravel, and arguably we could still be in such bull market.  Price direction remains unclear from here, regarding whether our current correction is going to continue - which you are also right that we could be in this current correction for another year or two before resuming up.   Cry

I cash out at least 50% every rally which ensures both that I am able to enjoy life and that I have something to show if/when bitcoin finally crashes for good. It makes me much more confident about hodling the remaining portion.

how do you figure out when to cash out your 50%, exactly?  or how much to HODL in preparation for any rally?

For example, it seems that you had removed yourself from bitcoin during the crash from $1100 to $200, and you were reluctant to get back in.  Also, you were talking bear talk all the way up in this past price run, all the way up past $1,, you were talking bear talk, and then further you became even more bearish above $8k, so perhaps you did not have any bitcoins remaining that you could cash out, even above $1k or even above $7k...

Are you sharing a formula that others could actually use, or are you just making up some random non-specific and bearsicle practice that attempts to get HODLers to sell more?   

I had actually theorized that I would sell up to 50% of my HODLings at one time or another when the price was going up, especially if I were to sense that BTC prices were reaching a blow-off top.... however, I am glad that I did not follow such a practice, and really, I remain unclear about when to determine a blow off top, and in that regard, selling less than 20% of my stash incrementally on the way up has given me a whole hell of a lot of fiat to play with, so I cannot imagine selling more, or figuring out what else to invest in (besides bitcoin), if I were to invest.

My General strategy.

1) I try to keep my bitcoin and crypto to no more than 20-25% of my net worth.
Some may think this is low, others too high. This what I am comfortable with. This includes realestate etc.
2) With price appreciation in the crypto portfolio , I generally recycle out profits to three areas, stocks, Gold, and US dollars ( short term).
A) Stocks I use for income and capital appreciation.
B) Gold for long term stable holdings ( relatively speaking)
C) US dollars for buying more Bitcoin or to withstand bear markets.
3) Generally I am recycling some alt coin profits into BTC and Gold right now.
4) I got involved in Bitcoin in 2013 and have maintained my position. ( total number of coins ) While harvesting profits and recycling them into other assets.

Goals:
1) I want to maintain my total number of BTC
2) Recycle out some profits from trades for other assets or increased life style.

I am definitely not as big a holder in BTC as some of you, but is has been a great ride so far.

Look at this trading view idea. (not mine)

It's showing a great opportunity for bitcoin if it forms. Inverse head and shoulders.
We need to go back to 8k or so to make it happen. Which means our little trend line needs to be sacrificed.

I hope this will happen.

You can't get rich like that. You need to pour everything you got into bitcoin and hold for a 10x return and then go get a lambo.

That's how it works. If you go with this way, Diversification and shit, like me used to do, you'll stay poor forever.

He is serious. You won’t get rich restricting your best asset to 25% of the value of your portfolio.

Diversification is very effective at killing moonshot gains.  You need to allow it headroom to grow.

I'm not making a hypothetical argument. The data on Coinmarketcap speaks for itself.

Try selling $100k worth of anything below the top 100 on exchange and let me know how you go with that.  

As I have previous posted, you could drive Bitcoin Unlimited to zero on QUOINEX with less than $1k worth.

For example, it seems that you had removed yourself from bitcoin during the crash from $1100 to $200, and you were reluctant to get back in.  Also, you were talking bear talk all the way up in this past price run, all the way up past $1,, you were talking bear talk, and then further you became even more bearish above $8k, so perhaps you did not have any bitcoins remaining that you could cash out, even above $1k or even above $7k...

Are you sharing a formula that others could actually use, or are you just making up some random non-specific and bearsicle practice that attempts to get HODLers to sell more?  

I had actually theorized that I would sell up to 50% of my HODLings at one time or another when the price was going up, especially if I were to sense that BTC prices were reaching a blow-off top.... however, I am glad that I did not follow such a practice, and really, I remain unclear about when to determine a blow off top, and in that regard, selling less than 20% of my stash incrementally on the way up has given me a whole hell of a lot of fiat to play with, so I cannot imagine selling more, or figuring out what else to invest in (besides bitcoin), if I were to invest.

My General strategy.

1) I try to keep my bitcoin and crypto to no more than 20-25% of my net worth.
Some may think this is low, others too high. This what I am comfortable with. This includes realestate etc.
2) With price appreciation in the crypto portfolio , I generally recycle out profits to three areas, stocks, Gold, and US dollars ( short term).
A) Stocks I use for income and capital appreciation.
B) Gold for long term stable holdings ( relatively speaking)
C) US dollars for buying more Bitcoin or to withstand bear markets.
3) Generally I am recycling some alt coin profits into BTC and Gold right now.
4) I got involved in Bitcoin in 2013 and have maintained my position. ( total number of coins ) While harvesting profits and recycling them into other assets.

Goals:
1) I want to maintain my total number of BTC
2) Recycle out some profits from trades for other assets or increased life style.

I am definitely not as big a holder in BTC as some of you, but is has been a great ride so far.


You can't get rich like that. You need to pour everything you got into bitcoin and hold for a 10x return and then go get a lambo.

That's how it works. If you go with this way, Diversification and shit, like me used to do, you'll stay poor forever.

Irony or really serious? I really can't tell....

You are correct, bitserve, some peeps really believe that kind of shit, that you have to go all in and gamble... and the truth of the matter with bitcoin has been that the returns have been so great that even modest investment strategies result in peeps becoming rich, as long as they largely HODL.

He is serious. You won’t get rich restricting your best asset to 25% of the value of your portfolio.

Diversification is very effective at killing moonshot gains.  You need to allow it headroom to grow.  

Give me two more years like 2017.  Is that too much to ask?  Cool

Of course, you can get richer going all in on a (retrospectively) HUGELY appreciating asset. But you never know for sure what will happen in the future... and you can get rich with a 25% if that 25% is enough and you can get poor if you are all in and the winds change.

He said that 25% is from his total net worth including real estate, fiat, stocks, everything. And, above all, that he tries to maintain his number of Bitcoins from the beginning extracting only some profits here and there and diversifying it.

It looks reasonable to me.

Yea, give me two more years like 2017 Smiley

What you say is perhaps true, however you are not factoring in other data.

1) For instance, if you already have wealth , do you then have 90% of your wealth in one asset?
2) You can still have amazing growth in other assets. For example marijuana stocks, gold stocks, A2 Milk for example on the NZX. 600% is not that bad for a stock.
3) I guess when you have wealth , you also need to look for ways to protect it.
4) Age makes a difference.

I do get your point. I guess it is a matter of personal strategy and where you are at in life.
