bitcoin just had a 14.7% difficulty change upwards. that's the biggest since january. there sure is a lot of firepower out there somewhere.

The difficulty increased by 634 billion which is the largest increase in the history of bitcoin. The increase in this period alone is nearly equal to the entire network difficulty 1 year ago.

It probably has something to do with this:

https://twitter.com/ynakamura56/status/1003908868114509824


Or this:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3359468.20;topicseen (S11's)


Bitcoin has become a war

Bitcoin is the weapon that started the that will end the currency war

You could go back as far as nixon and the gold standard to see the beginning of the currency war even then again just after world war 2.

Remember you do not invade 80 countries in over 70 years because your citizens want you to overthrow that "Inhumane" regime.

You do not tell your citizens you want the currency changed and this is why we are invading.

As bitcoin is a main competitor they will throw everything at it, and have been for a while now

no need from my point of view, as one way or another BTC price is not affected.

there is plenty of evidence around if you look for it. believing it is up to the individual. depends on ones technical understanding of the tech and your belief in the sources.

I think that part of my point is that moon landing and other topics such as the official story behind the twin tower and DC attacks of 9/11/2001, who was behind the JFK assassination and other topics have decently credible evidence on both sides.. There is almost NO decently credible evidence that the earth is flat.

ive seen a bit of the "fake moon landing" stuff. shadows in odd directions, flag staying horizontal, the rock with a prop number, camera button too small, such like that. all were debunked once you know the real reasons for such "discrepancies."

unless theres much more recent stuff to "prove" otherwise, the moon landing being real is a done deal for me.

btw i watched the 1st moon landing in a telescope with my dad in the back yard. cant say we saw much however Smiley

Sure... it seems as if 6 manned landings does provide for more evidence that manned moon landings actually did take place.  So, yeah, if that stuff was faked, then there would habe been a whole hell-of-a lot of theatrics to pull it off. 

I am not really very attached to the moon landing topic, but I can appreciate ways in which any kinds of conspiracy and theories of truth can be connected with benefits of an immutable blockchain that could help to bring some truth to power - even though the powers that be are not likely to let go of their various propaganda machines at any point in the near future, and accordingly, similar to the internet, but likely more profound, bitcoin is likely to deliver a decently sized check on several mainstream propaganda systems.

Guys, let's get the topic back on track. All scam accusations should be in the scam accusation child forum.  Grin Grin

All we had to do is to click the report button, and get a moderator notified. No need to keep on ranting and derailing this thread which ultimately leads to a bottomless end.

Agreed. I do have a problem when the moderators tolerate folks like @realr0ach insulting Legendary members.

I warned bitcoin was in a serious bubble last December and I sincerely hope many of you got out over $18,000. We already had the dead cat bounce (great short entry at $15,000) and we are now under a daily Death Cross which is the final confirmation of a bear market:



Any bounce up this month is a bull trap IMO and should be used to raise cash or short. I don't believe we will see the final capitulation until end of this year. Point of maximum pain has not been reached yet and best time to buy is when "there is blood in the streets". I do believe that long term bitcoin will do just fine but expecting a new ATH before the middle to end of 2019 is very low probability. Like unicorn sighting low probability. Sorry about that.

Take trading advice here and confirm with your own analysis. Learn Ichimoku Cloud, Fibonacci, 50/200 daily moving averages/RSI and learn to make your own trading decisions. You don't become a profitable trader in one month for most it takes at least a year with guidance from a mentor. Most new traders get wiped out and quit if they are on their own.

In the future I will be posting any important bitcoin analysis or trading set ups on my own website. I have not devoted much time to it lately (too busy trading) but that will change.

How do you reconcile that historically a death cross in Bitcoin has signaled a bottom rather than further downside?

...."even though the powers that be are not likely to let go of their various propaganda machines"...

True but it is currently been takin away from them, already happening


..."By the end of the decade we will walk on the moon"...

They sure were running out of time to keep that statement, I wonder if they pulled out all the tricks to make sure 1969 moon landing happened.

would be very embarrassing if it did not happen with all that wasted taxpayer money

This is incredible indeed. The revenue for a single s9 asic dropped to 0.00072BTC per day, around $5.47 at the moment. These beasts consume 1370W, so the profit is much less now. Wu and his buddy Ver are desparately pumping beecash with the  hope to attract noobs with fake profit promisses. I am astonished that there are so many naiive people to trust them with their money. Anyway, under these circumstances even if bitcoin's price continues sideways or bart-style jumps and drops in June-July, in August-December we will see quite a spectacular increase IMO.

[edited out]

ok Jay I will clarify...

your statement and "I find way more probability that the moon landing and some of that crap about men going to the moon to be a lot less likely to be true than the nonsense that is spouted out about the earth being flat”

paraphrased....is you believe moon landings are less likely to be true than a flat earth....  amirite?


Nope.  Apparently we have a misunderstanding because I was attempting to say the opposite.  I was attempting to say that the falseness of the moonlandings would be more likely than the falseness of flat earth theories.  Thanks for clarifying and sorry for my ambiguity.

Exactly how am I taking that out of context or misunderstanding you?

Doesn't matter.   I am not a flat earther, and if you just take one badly worded statement and try to blow it up rather than clarify, then you just seem to be stirring shit.

Or did you misspeak and actually  mean that the moon landings are MORE likely to be true than a flat earth?

That is another way of putting it.  Yes.


Your next statement .... quote "By the way, a faking of the moon landing is not even close to the same level of flat earth loony beliefs" unquote ...

is kind of silly because both positions are binary.  You either believe men landed on the moon or you don't. and you either believe the earth is flat or not.

I don't think so.  It is true that something of the past either happened or it did not happen, but it is not true that a person's belief about something happening is black and white 100%...  There is various levels of convincing evidence to make something true in someone's thinking or not, even though the truthfulness of something happening or not may be a lot more concrete. hello?  What world do you live in?


There are no levels of lunacy.

we disagree.


Now I suppose you could take  the  loony position on the one (the moon landings were faked) and the obvious position(the earth is not flat.... duhhh) on the other,


Nothing wrong with taking that position, and who the fuck cares about my opinion anyhow? It does not matter that much in terms of whether the events happened or the phenomenon is true, except if we are connecting such beliefs with something else.  There are a whole hell-of-a lot more luny beliefs than mine, so I am comfortable with my current belief situation, while being open to learning, too.


but that would be analogous  to a Creationist who believes the Talking Snake,  Adam and Eve  bible story as totally factual but thinks The Noah’s Ark tale is complete bullshit.

Those are decent examples in which there may be truth in some aspects of the stories, but there are also various interpretations too... so yeah, either the snake talked or it did not and either noah's ark happened or it didn't... but the opinions of people are going to vary considerably.... For me, seems like a lot of bullshit in each of those three tales, even though there could be some aspects that are based on some kind of truths of real events (likely stretches of the truth... but whatever).

In which basket will you throw the fact that the FBI claims Nicola Tesla was an alien.
Will you accept it as fact or call the fbi conspiracy theorist creators.
https://vault.fbi.gov/nikola-tesla/Nikola%20Tesla%20Part%2003%20of%2003/view

What ? OP is certainly a bundle of sticks...

* Reads the PDF *



To be fair, it does appear to be a newsletter from some fringe group that was added to the dossier.

Thanks for taking the time.

I got as far as "Tesla, one of the worlds outstanding scientists in the electrical field.... He conducted many experiments in connection with the wireless transmission of electrical power"

Correct. This is something that was very interesting, power grids in the sky. Tesla was a genius in his time. But that scared people. No wonder if after he died some fame grabbers called him an alien or a magician charlatan. Right. Funny because right now we are again looking at the possibility of harnessing power from the air.

Would a knowledgeable "alien" need to fumble around in the dark with thousands of experiments some successful some not?


You cannot make this stuff up

Uncle John Trump worked on the FBI Tesla files (found this last year)

Dont go much into infowars but found this interesting when he started talking about "Free Energy"

Bitcoin, Futures, and the Ghost of Gold A forecast for bitcoin if it follows the post-futures cycle of gold.


+1WOmerit. Good article.

I always believed futures would kill bitcoin, and the graphs proved it, even with the bear market being inevitable.

But this article refutes it very well. Since bitcoin moves faster than gold, we should not worry too much.


I am not sure if I understand your point, fabiorem.  It seems that the article supports a kind of theory that increasing financialization to an asset such as gold (and subsequently bitcoin) might bring some short term fall in price, yet overall causes the market to multiply stupendously.  Accordingly, the overall theme of the article seems to show that increased financialization of bitcoin is likely to bring a decently-sized upward explosion in the bitcoin market and market cap - even if it could take some time to play out (and perhaps even if some of the fundamentals are different between gold and bitcoin). 

By the way, fundamentally, bitcoin seems to be superior to gold, so perhaps the upward explosion of bitcoin would be greater than gold, but still could take many years to play out... 5-10 years would not be unreasonable.

Right now, $7615 is acting as support while $7645 is acting as resistance, next 24 hours will be very interesting to stare at Bitfinex.


Gold is isolated from direct factors of economic growth but silver is an industrial metal

Gold is an industrial metal too. It is inside of almost every electronic device there is.

Correct. I bought a little bit of it a few months back to have more bitcoin. Grin

...and it worked out!

...this is what I was talking about: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Power/Plug-Type/RMx-Series/p/CP-9020092-NA

Gold power supply is more efficient than silver (and of course more expensive), so I bought the one with gold rating and Ethereum GPU mining worked out pretty good with it.

Using silver instead of gold within a power supply makes the power supply less efficient.

...

I did not do anything beyond making a response to a previous post, and an attempted clarification of my posts.  Because of your own inner focused delusions, you seem to trying to read more into the situation than exists.  In other words, just stirring shit....

Or just seeing ghosts as in the italicized. Tongue

I have been having a med balancing issue. Smiley

Rosanne Barr, is that you?

I'll take this opportunity to apologize for anyone that I may have offended, I sometimes fly off the handle, incoherently to others that do not have my context. Usually the lack of punctuation and run-ons are a dead giveaway. Tongue

Oh sure... Apologizing is the proper thing to do if you conclude that you may have gone too far, or if you are not sure about whether you went too far.... So fair enough... Yet, in the same light, if you are having some of these kinds of issues, then you may want to post less frequently during those kinds of periods, perhaps?  Ultimately, it is up to you to decide how frequently to post and what to post.. I do think that everyone should attempt to be aware of his/her own medication limitations, if they are present, though.

i find it hard to believe people that are otherwise reasonably intelligent can still believe that moon landings were faked.

mental block?  lack of knowledge the technical aspects? brain washing? wishful thinking? whatever it is.. well enjoy your beliefs.

Maybe there is a need for a thread on the topic?  

I know that there is a thread on the flat earth bullshit, but that concept of flat earth is totally luny (pun intended).  By the way, a faking of the moon landing is not even close to the same level of flat earth luny beliefs.

no need from my point of view, as one way or another BTC price is not affected.

there is plenty of evidence around if you look for it. believing it is up to the individual. depends on ones technical understanding of the tech and your belief in the sources.

I think that part of my point is that moon landing and other topics such as the official story behind the twin tower and DC attacks of 9/11/2001, who was behind the JFK assassination and other topics have decently credible evidence on both sides.. There is almost NO decently credible evidence that the earth is flat.

There is a strong correlation between conspiracy theorists and low cognitive capability.  Make of that what you will.  

Maybe such another thread would treat the concepts of conspiracy theories rather than any particular conspiracy theory?

Surely, the concept of conspiracy theories can be related to bitcoin and also to the kinds of skills that any of us needs to attempt to sort through how to invest our own thinking (and simultaneously, money, perhaps?).

In which basket will you throw the fact that the FBI claims Nicola Tesla was an alien.
Will you accept it as fact or call the fbi conspiracy theorist creators.
https://vault.fbi.gov/nikola-tesla/Nikola%20Tesla%20Part%2003%20of%2003/view

Of course if there is some kind of political or government proclamation, then those might be worthy of looking into to the extent that any meaningful number of people buy into the proclamations.  I would imagine that currently the number of folks believing in aliens that are capable of visiting earth to be quite small, and even smaller would be the number of people believing that any actual alien, if it were to occupy earth, would be capable of imitating a human..... In other words, that Tesla=alien proclamation is way out there in the low probability to be true category (perhaps less than .1% likelihood of any kind of meaningful truth, even though it could bring up decent talking points about why the point was raised in the first place and what evidence is presented in support of such a low-likelihood claim).

Many bitcoin exchanges do not now give their customers actual bitcoin, but rather do off-chain transactions with other exchange customers or transact on customers’ behalf with outsiders. Except where customers withdraw cryptocurrency into self-hosted wallets, the ownership of these assets is unclear. The number of off-blockchain transactions has increased enormously in the last eighteen months; we can’t find good figures but the volume is sufficient to raise serious concerns and the practice falls under e-money regulations that are not being enforced.
