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.


...."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

Perhaps you are a bit more optimistic than me?  There continue to be internet informational and disinformation wars, and even governments who try to shut down the internet and even in the USA with stupid ass slow ass internet speeds and legislation that commercializes (throttles or slow down some kinds of content).  I doubt that the power is gone because a lot of people believe bullshit, and accept outright hateful self-centered criminal leaders like trump..    The war of information rages on.. and government players, large companies and rich people continue to have a disproportionate level of power and influence into distracting through quasi-truths and untruths.


..."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

Perhaps we agree about the motive to lie.. however, I don't agree with your "wasted taxpayer money" concept.  Publicly beneficial research and development does sometimes come out of government projects that would not have happened nor materialized without such use of community funds, even if there were millions of dollars into researching a space pen or some other seemingly "wasteful" research.

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.


ok so we agree you misspoke.
And tbh, after re-reading your original post that elicited my response of
"oh my fucking god.....etc," that triggered this whole moon landing flat earth exchange,
I suspected that's what you actually meant, so a big NEVERMIND THEN!!! 
Dude, I wasn't trying to blow it up or pick a fight, just wanted to sort out the mess.
Now let's put this damn thing to bed, yeah? Everyone's getting annoyed..lol

Great.  Seems like we are done with battle mode, for now, and willing to hug it out.    Wink

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.

Yep but modern manufacturing doesnt require alot of gold apparently, its become far less though I should look for a source.

Heres a couple of pie charts, showing how silver is almost like an oppisite in its industrial emphasis.   In a way its good to have solid uses but also it provides interference to the price when recession occurs




We're back above the MA blue line for BTC momentum, its flat but generally seems constructive with higher lows.   Sideways after a fall can surprise some by effectively being a positive I find, still hear people being negative when its not going down.

Personally, I believe that it is NOT wise to play "all or nothing" strategies with your bitcoin investment, even if you have a strong conviction that each BTC is worth $1million.  It is much safer to cash out of your BTC incrementally on the way up, and to play it safe, rather than to stick with your convictions that BTC is going to be priced at $1million and perhaps end up either losing too much of your investment, or your psychology or panic selling on the way down rather than on the way up.  

I think that incremental selling of small amounts of BTC on the way up is better than betting too much on too high and remaining filled with hopium rather than practicalities.  

Let me provide an illustration.

Hypothetically, let's say that you have about 10 BTC that you acquired at the current price at around $7,500 (which would be a $75k investment), and you are generally bullish about the long term prospects of bitcoin while remaining somewhat skittish and skeptical about whether upwards BTC price movements are going to be sustainable.

You can decide whatever formula that you like for cashing out of your BTC in an incremental manner, but hypothetically, if you chose to cash out 5% of your BTC for every 50% that BTC prices go up, then you would be doing pretty good at various price points.

It would play out something like this:

With BTC at $25k you would still have 9.025BTC worth about $228k and $25k in cash.

With BTC at $57k you would still have 8.14BTC worth about $464k and $64k in cash.

With BTC at $85k you would still have 7.7BTC worth about $661k and $97.5k in cash.

With BTC at $128k you would still have 7.35BTC worth about $942k and $144k in cash.

With BTC at $288k you would still have 6.63BTC worth about $1.9million and $307k in cash.

With BTC at $432k you would still have 6.3BTC worth about $2.7million and $444k in cash.

With BTC at $973k you would still have 5.69BTC worth about $5.5million and $914k in cash.

The above sets of numbers assume that you do nothing else with your BTC investment, except for cash out 5% of your BTC value at the various BTC price points of 50% BTC price appreciation each time; however, you could be more active and reinvest some or all of your cashed out money on likely inevitable BTC price dips or you could choose differing increments to lock in your BTC profits... for example taking out 1% for every 10% BTC price increase.  

More frequent profit taking will not decrease the amounts of your profits dramatically while it provides some peace of mind to pull out BTC profits more regularly and sooner (rather than waiting for what might not happen).  You can play around with variations of incrementalism up the BTC price ladder in order to figure out a comfortable increment that works for you on a personal level.. rather than holding out for $1million per BTC.. which might not happen before you are dead (hate to be so morbid, but that is the truth of the matter).

The main point that I am attempting to make is to suggest that each of us should make a plan that is good for ourselves, and tweak our plans in such a way that is good for ourselves and still a reasonable plan that helps us to enjoy our BTC profits on the way UP (which BTC continues to seem to have decent chances of continuing to go UP, and having a plan will help each of us to deal with such UPPITY BTC prices at price points that each of us predetermine and can tweak at our own complete and full discretion).

Edit:  By the way, I understand that each of us might not be able to buy 10BTC at $7,500 or have that kind of BTC investment starting point, but each of us can surely work a similar formula with smaller BTC investment amounts and also continue to invest into BTC in order to attempt to reach our goals (employing dollar cost averaging), without gambling too much of our assets in order to attempt to achieve our goals (or to defeat our purposes by gambling and losing)

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:

Actually, that is a nice link infofront.  The investment and cashing out strategy looks to be fairly similar to mine - except for that strategy seems to cash out 10% for every 100% price rise.  My above example uses a similar proportion of cashing out 5% for every 50% price rise.  Further, if you know that in late 2013 Rpietila had a BTCtalk thread on the topic too, and Rpietila was suggesting to cash out 10% for every 100% price rise.

In about 2014/2015 I constructed a similar strategy to rpietila; however, I did not want to wait for BTC prices to double before cashing out 10%, so I played around with much smaller variations that are similar in their proportions, and I tend to play around with cashing out 1% for every 10% rise in price and I even play in smaller increments, too while keeping the cashing out proportions approximately the same or sometimes playing around a bit with the proportions if I am in more of a gambling mood.    I believe that there were periods of time that I was cashing out higher proportions of BTC because I already realized that there was a pretty damned high likelihood that I would be using all or part of the cashed out money to buy back in, so I did not mind cashing out a bit more in order to attempt to more or less maintain a 10/1 ratio by accounting for my anticipated buying back.

It is true that some peeps are going to be comfortable to wait for 100% price rises before cashing out, but I think that such expectations can become a bit difficult to put into practice because for some other peeps it is going to be difficult to wait that amount of a BTC price appreciation before cashing out.. especially when peeps are already scared that BTC prices are going to reverse back down.  

My personal approach has been to use such an incremental cashing out strategy to reinvest decent portions of what I had cashed out in order to buy back into BTC with dips.  So far, I have found that even with reinvesting part of the value that I have cashed out, my incremental cashing out and reinvesting strategy tends to generate a decent amount of cashed out fiat (and perhaps my feeling even excessive amounts of fiat) in order for me to feel personally comfortable that I have plenty of fiat to work with to buy more BTC on dips or just to walk away with that fiat in the event that I chose not to reinvest it.   On the other side of the coin, I also feel comfortable with the amount of BTC that I am retaining in my holdings because I will always have a moderate amount and I am never cashing out more than a certain proportion that I had previously established as acceptable for me (which in my full and complete discretion, I can re-think the matter and change those amounts and increments at any time too).
