Bitcoin is the original shitcoin Smiley The whole crypto game is just one big bubble, with very little practical value created and mostly held up by high hopes and ignorance. I didn't get caught in the BS sales pitches with BTC when I played it, and I still don't do it with new alternatives. Just ride the waves of hype and have fun while playing it is my moto. Believing any of this is for people who invest in buying lambos Tongue

Yep, here's my investment alongside more precious metals than scrooge mcduck Smiley



 Meh.  You can't legally drive that on sidewalks....
Check out my Bitcoin extravagance.



Top speed 15 km/h and it's a hit with the ladies! (okay they're all over 65 but...)

My respects to anyone whose work is about creating real value and developing the economy. Then you must also see this (crypto) as a fun game and not take things overly serious Smiley

Goes against the grain here but I have always said for me personally I use crypto for short term gains then plough the profits into gold for the mid to long term.

In the future I see crypto being banned with state issued and controlled crypto being the legal alternative.

Most will disagree but no one has a crytal ball and time will tell.

I see that in the end, crypto won't go out with a bang, but with a whimper. People will just start to realize it more, that it isn't a miracle cure to anything. BTC will probably go first, because it actually tries to be a currency without any value stabilization mechanism. The newer generations will last longer, but again, people will see that they are just ineffective databases. But I don't have a crystal ball either, unexpected and strange things could happen.
Our investment logic and love of toys express itself a little differently. I get very anxious when I see money sitting still on something. I need to see it constantly moving and giving people a chance to create more value. For my lust of speed, I love cars that aren't legal to drive on the road and that are as light and mean as they can be. To fuel my vanity, I love mostly cars that are at least 40 years old Smiley

Gold has no future because of the upcoming power abundance. Right now it is extremely inefficient to make gold which can be done but to produce 1 gram it would cost you a million dollars so digging it up is far more economical.
Bitcoin is limited does not matter how much free, very cheap power you have you cant produce more only push up the hash-rate to astronomical levels. Free or extremely cheap power you still need a unit of measurement to contact business. And the other thing prof of stake or any of the other stuff the carpet is ripped right out under there feed if power or environment is not an issue.
Trust me its on the way and or in place.

I don't know you guys but I can hodl my stash and can keep buying till it goes below $1k levels. If it goes lower, I'll probably lose my mind and in this situation it won't make any sense to sell neither so I would either go all in with my FIAT in my bank account or just keep hodling like I was doing before.

That's my emergency plan.  Grin

I'm not a big fan of investing into precious metals with highly speculative markets, but BTC vs gold, I would choose gold. Bitcoin may be limited, but it is also easily replaceable. This makes it's value far more fragile.
With PoW vs PoS, the environment isn't an issue, but the cost of production is an issue. It's all about the numbers, talks about the environment is just for PR.

They do have too much power in their dev team who operates like a company and it will bite them but it could possibly make it easy for governments acceptance.

But... what if technology can't fundamentally support that "too much power" stuff ?

That's what we're starting to see with mETH, and the mETH-heads are too busy getting high on gas to see the forest through the trees.

The forest be burning, yo.
Ethereum isn't as great as people want to pretend, there isn't a lot of smart contracts actually being used. The saving grace of Eth is their switch to Casper, which we'll have all these environmentalist who don't understand anything about crypto but that Eth will use way less mining power now and they think it should be used instead of Bitcoin .

The big issue they're missing is Bitcoin miners are essentially building tons of infrastructure for these hydroelectric, geothermic areas and of course love solar and wind but fuck that logic.
Look, I am a big bitcoin enthusiast, but building infrastructure to use up more alternative energy is not energy-neutral or energy-positive (unless you assume there is some of scaling effect in which technologies only become developed after they grow large enough, and then you would assume that the added electricity demand is just what the world needed to get to that threshold, which seems unlikely) .  So no, bitcoin mining is not positive for the environment.  It might be that POW is the only good method for a cryptocurrency (I haven't really looked that deeply into other systems), but lets not create make-believe stories.

Gold's monetary utility is also easily replaceable... with bitcoin. We might see that play out over the next decades.

Your so full of shit.

By your own figures (which are inaccurate) power costs would have to reduce 99.96% just to break even on buying a mined, fully refined 1g gold.

And that doesnt even include the building and running costs of the new power plants then the nuclear reactors or particle accelerators required to produce the tiny amounts of gold.

Can we go up now like crossing $20k and more

I'm still kicking myself for not selling off the rest of the coin I have loaded on the exchange when it last bounced off $11,500.

You could do worse, like shorting with leverage around 6800 and going long again around 9800...

Gold isn't a very good monetary asset, since it's market is speculative and that makes it unstable. But bitcoin would be far worse, because unlike gold, it has virtually 0% intrinsic value. Stability is what the monetary system needs, because that is very important to develop the economy.

I think "intrinsic value" is bullshit.

Also, gold is impractical as a means of exchange, which hinders its "stickyness" and price stability.  
If bitcoin scales well and has increased adoption, it would become more stable.
