specially the coins that are truly decentralized.

It is not possible to create a decentralized digital currency.  Stop repeating this lie pushed by fly by night motivational speakers/used car salesmen scammers like Andreas Antonopolous.  Transaction validators are ALWAYS designed to centralize through interest, or economy of scale, or capital reqs for creating a foundry, the bell curve's effect on ASIC design, and a million other centralizing variables.  Silver and gold DO NOT have centralized transaction validators. Shitcoins do.  They are not "money", they're solely a system of control.

Gold =       Money of kings
Silver =     Money of gentlemen
Copper =   Money of peasants
Fiat =        Money of slaves
Shitcoins = Money of barcoded cattle

I think that your memes made your point pretty well, even though I disagree with the concept of shorting bitcoin, especially after it already experienced nearly a 30% dip within about 2 weeks. It neither seems to be a good personal strategy nor good for bitcoin... yet I understand that personal strategy might be the only one that matters to a lot of people who just want to make money, but even on that basis, it seems a bit of a gamble to bet on DOWN after a relatively fast correction.

 On the other hand, if someone had been betting on DOWN when the price went up 30% in almost the same amount of time, that would have seemed to like a more practical and realistic bet (even though I personally don't engage in any kind of margin trading of bitcoin).
Already 3 days on the fall play.And very successful. I know that there will be growth, but later. Now many people say that bitcoin has fallen heavily, what this is the end. But this is not so, year ago it was twice cheaper. It's just that people want great growth and eternal "that's moon", especially beginners. But this is impossible.

We don't disagree about the likelihood that bitcoin is going up in the long term.  I am just quibbling with any suggestions that it would be a good idea to short (or even sell bitcoin) after it has already made a nearly 30% correction.  Such play might work, but the odds for success do not seem great.

Wikipedia describes Andretti as living in Pennsylvania, and his activites seem to me around that location.. not in Las Vegas.

Are you saying that Andretti is currently in Las Vegas or are you getting his "driving instruction" via video, simulation or fraud (maybe what you got is something like Roger Ver acting as the "real Andretti?)?
Nope, he was here. And in the Pics or it didn't happen:

Mario Brother.


I fucking fit in these Lambos. Barely.


Twin-Turbo Ferrari's are much more roomy.

None of you should sell right now.  If the SEC "delay" is just a Jew scam shakeout, I want you all to have millions of coins to dump on the Jews if they approve an ETF after.  Of course...if it's denied, which it would be in any rational world when the price is entirely controlled by the fraudulent exchange Bitfinex...then oh well.

BTC Dominance: 49% .
Will see 50% this month?

5/ Bear market bottoms are formed after prolonged periods of false rallies, increasing disinterest and eventual apathy. The mindset is "I give up, I'll look for returns elsewhere". It also coincides with a dwindling of media interest.

6/ Sadly, we're not there yet and may not be for many months. I think it is unlikely we will wait for years, however, since the fundamentals of Bitcoin - security, usability, liquidity - are all improving rapidly.

10/ And if you speak with kids today, you will find that very few of them are interested in gold, but almost all of them know about (or own) Bitcoin. That alone tells you the future. Bitcoin WILL overtake gold in market capitalization eventually.

11/ So whether the bear market lasts a few months, or even a few years, Bitcoin is still massively undervalued today.

The takeaway here is that over the long term bitcoin will prevail even alt coins jump during bull runs. There will be less and large bull runs with adoption and thus BTC will trend toward 100% dominance.

Here is a short take on generations, inflation, btc and gold (with numbers)

Boomers, were born in 1946-1964, with 1955 in the middle of the cohort.
A massive generation (in numbers).
inflation spiked between 1973 and 1980 with 1980 max when interest rates on cash were around 14% (range of 18-25 years from boomer's medium, max at 25 years).
Gold maxed out 25 years after boomers mid (1980).

Millennials (also massive in numbers), were born in 1985-2004 with 1994-1995 in the middle of the cohort.
with each generation lifespan is increasing a bit, so maybe add 2-3 years to the timeline, therefore

Prediction:

Inflation would spike between 21-28 years from the millennial medium aka at around 2016-2023 with around 2023 longterm peak in interest rates (obviously interest rates are already rising since 2016, so it fits).
Instead of gold, millennials would hopefully choose bitcoin, which should peak around 2023 as well (100K, 500k, 1000K, hard to say).
Later projections are difficult because gold faded in the 80ies, yet bitcoin might have/should have staying power.


Cash (in short term bonds, re-investing every time at maturity)+btc is probably the best combo.

Stock market would at best go nowhere in the next 5-10 years if interest rates climb; why do you think E. Musk wants to go private? Because he can't borrow at reasonable rates and selling declining stock is a bad idea.

Same for the real estate. Crashes are possible.

At around 2023, I would convert some portion of btc to long term bonds, which should (at that point) give at least 10% yield, maybe more, would not even need to bother with the stock market.

One relevant conclusion: whatever you do, do not buy annuities and don't believe any pension numbers (of those that don't have a a reasonable COLA).

I'm 100% behind this statement!

Funnily enough I just got off the phone to a pal who told me he knows someone who 'lost' 400 grand in Bitcoin and had a nervous breakdown. He couldn't tell me whether he sold or not.

If anyone got in expecting eternal gains then they're a fuckstick. There's lots of rich history of utter ruination to draw on now. If at this point you're taken totally by surprise by a grinding downturn then you clearly haven't read anything beyond the 'buy' on the buy button.


I am more in the HODL and HODL camp (since 2015) ...thus probably 'deluded' but 'deluded is how I roll' Smiley

Bitcoin back to where it was 27 days back:

What a waste of time.

Sheeit.

Aug 7th  2017  $3,638.38 usd seems the last year was but a 'dream'  but still better ....not sure what to think....currently $6,335.00 usd btc.

My view is NOW it will bounce below 5K in that even big miners (data halls) can't pow scrypt mine ANY crypto BTC or whatever at these prices and not be at a loss....thus

they have bankers to pay etc. So I expect a big dump of btc and crypto. Or at least what I've been told by a couple of owners of such.

The choice is pay off the debts/banks and any loans with crypto. If it all goes tulips and the folk pull their contracts for miners or you are under water..you at least salvage the building

and shut your stuff off (hopefully for now). I'm talking 200 -500 unit data halls. Hell, I doubt bitmain is even making $$$ at these prices over costs...at least for their stuff in the states.

so, with those folk, in HODL mode, due to revenue and that revenue goes away as folk shut down....again gonna be ugly yet I think

brad

OH MY FUCKING GOD.

Lots of doom and glom on the way.  Shit.  Holy shit.   Shocked

https://www.newsbtc.com/2018/08/08/fud-fueled-crypto-market-dumps-25-billion-in-24-hours/

We're 9.5% down in 24 hours?! Is that how much we fell? REALLY?!
Quote
Once again traders and hodlers have been suckered into the FUD frenzy and are selling out of crypto. It was hardly as if this decision wasn’t expected and nothing else has really changed in the ecosystem. Total market capitalization has plunged 9.5% on the day resulting in a loss of almost $25 billion. They are currently at their lowest point in 2018 which is just over $231 billion and the bear market is still in full effect.

Aren't you able to do your own math and assessment too?  Is 24 hours an important measurement?  Don't we need to look at both the UPs and the DOWNs and the context before we get worked up about whether 24 hours was a 7% or a 9% or a 20% drop?  

Furthermore, if we are attempting to time a little bit short term, then context becomes even more important to determine whether and how much we buy (or sell - which would be dumb) now or wait for the next price move before taking some kind of buy/sell action.  

Of course, my own portfolio has been in a dominantly buying situation since the price rise to $8,500 with my first buys occurring around $8k and so far down to $6,300 with my next buys set for a bit above $6k...   So if we look at the local top, and perhaps I am helping you out too much, then we might see shorter term significance coming from the period in which we came down from $8,500 to nearly $6,100, which is approaching a 30% drop - well 28.2% to be more specific.  

Anyhow, part of my point remains that any attempt to quibble with numbers provided by someone else (whether in an article or in a post) is to consider the context in which the numbers are presented and attempt to determine if that context is very relevant or if a different context would be more relevant (especially for your own considerations about either what to do or how to perceive the situation).

you are correct if BTC survives in the future...myself, I see it as going down more, with miners and data halls (big guys) now feeling the pinch. Sell some coin, keep the building/etc as a hedge, seems to be the game

now. Can't count on income and thus that would keep the banker at bay. But ugly. If BTC and crypto is not FUD'ed to death after all this, again IMHO, no ETF will be allowed with the price dump of from 18,000 usd to

now $6,358 or using these figures a dump of 64% from the bubble..in less than a year. They will use the too volatile argument and pass on all ETF's IMHO, well into 2020. This likely is the reason for the dump in price

people have lost all hope on ETF's.

So that is the choice indeed. Believe in BTC and crypto and ride it out with 1) what you have 2) with what you have and add to the stash 3) bail and sell

But, the lower the price the more the 'powers that be" gov't/regulation and just plain pushback from big money....the more likely we will lose even more ground ..under 5k IMHO.

So thems the breaks/ and bets now, the above 3 choices...crypto poker as it were....1) HODL 2) raise 3) fold.

A bit too pessimistic, but certainly an accurate depiction of some of the underlying dynamics, yet I still think that there is something about the alt coin dynamics too that is affecting this whole "shaking out" situation that you did not mention in your above post.  Could partly be an alt coin shake out, too, no?



I simply think that the ETF's will be 'strung out' over the next 2 years at best..before they come to fruitaion....

thus it is gonna be like 2014-2016 IMHO. A long 'slog'. There is NO reason for any bureaucrat to make an ETF under the present circumstances, with a 64% drop in value.

I HOPE it bounces back up to 6k from the above and stays there ...but again....the new window IMHO is gonna be 4k to 6k w/o any meaningful movement by institutional money

and no ETF ...no institutional money...no pump in price...so it really, really is a good time to 'buy' or it is just gonna meander sideways for 2 years.

Bitcoin has been there before and likely has returned.

Another point, I'm not entirely sure of ...I myself suspect sometime within the next 1-2 years a pretty major recesson..from my USA point of view...so the question becomes....is bitcoin and crypto

prices kept up by 'discretionary spending' ie people have extra cash..thus it goes into crypto and BTC? or will BTC act as a store of value in such a recession.. Again, myself I see this 'supposed'

recession my part as being around a 40% or more correction. (the normal view of a recession is a 20% pull back)

lots of crap ...being juggled...but just can't see any new money coming in, until more sensible regulation of some kind and/or ETF's ..I'd love to be wrong...but what I'm thinking

I'll likely HODL my BTC etc and burn my ALT's on the retirement...but, again...perhaps people should buy like hell, because even if it is a long haul to the next wave or crypto price rises and I'm 'supposedly'

correct....nothing is gonna happen till gov't and big money are comfortable...and again, they are not very damn comfortable without an ETF and with the 64% drop from the ATH of around 18k or so.

What I'm steeling myself for, in HODL mode anyway...As usual, like the rest of you, I really hope I'm full of shit...but damn if this does not seem to me like 2014-2016 with BTC and crypto. Sad

 Theres a consequence of a welfare state, there is no opt out because they dont want you as a liability later.   [Also it should be said those paying now are required as cash to feed old responsibilities, its not far from a ponzi which works if working population rises]   Same could be said of income tax itself, it used to be you were on your own in the extremes and really it was down to communities themselves to support each other.  However now anything and everything is a Federal responsibility with a cost to go with it.

I think we test 6600 upper before any further action especially.  Enough orders to only blip down to an older low and rise back.   This graph says a bit lower for the low in a trend but I would guess later and it test up first
