Part of it is poking fun at legacy finance folks that I've started seeing on reddit. Financial advisers that were so good at their jobs that they never saw how well Bitcoin would do. For some reason their government required certifications did not include looking into things outside of their bubble. And instead of recognizing a potential new technology, they attack it because they need to protect their old system (after all, they did invest a lot of time in those classes and certs).

The thing with certifications is that they give you a false sense of accomplishment and closure, even though most of them are trash and only require a bare minimum understanding and aptitude. Otherwise the broad masses would start complaining that it's too hard for them to get anywhere in life whilst not putting in the required effort. Not necessarily a government problem in that regard, although I'm not going to even try to speak positively about it (gov).

My best friend went through the whole thing to become a financial adviser. He convinced me that whole life insurance was a good investment.

It wasn't until I was trying to defend it in an online forum using math that I realized how horrible it was.

I know history doesn't repeat itself but rhymes and such, blah blah...

Here is my quick rough picture showing where I think we are if we are repeating the previous cycle.

still bearish

May I genuinely ask why? I can't think of much to be bearish about, especially not justifying a 30% downswing in two weeks time long after the December ATH.
Don't let the reason be 'because the price goes down', since that is a poor and manipulable indicator of Bitcoin's state. Think for yourself.

I wouldn't hate on Roger too much, he helped make bitcoin what it is today and was one of the first merchants to accept bitcoin as payment.

I'm heavily behind bitcoin but on the dark web now most sellers are only taking Monero and not BTC.

Two nonsense points.

First there is plenty of reasons to hate on Roger, and second, who gives a ratt's ass about Monero.  this is a bitcoin thread.

Monero has its own problems.  The transaction fees hurt and supply is not fixed.

It's always good to keep a diversified portfolio, and thankfully I can afford to lose what I've put in if it dies completely (which is not likely to happen imo).

That's bullshit.

There is no need to diversify into shit coins.  Of course, there may be other reasons to diversify, but why buy pump and dump paper tigers?

Bitcoin is getting weaker and weaker as the time goes but in the recent month I think we will see a rapid rise of btc. And eventually it will benefit both new and current investors but those who cash out will be in loss

The memories of future's past have come back to haunt
Seeing bitcoin evolve into an army of damned
But my menace persisted in haunting me

Never unyielding, always vigilant
Hunting as taught by the very trolls that mocked
the menace never stopped, silently creeping in at night
distracting, thought provoking and downright unnecessary

Paper is only big in btc due to futures.

Hodling sw and ln by falling dominance from 99% to below 40 and from absolute value near 20k to below 6k speaks all for your 'bright mind'.

Have more fun.

Tee hee hee

The post below explains that Bitmain is valuing its 1.02 million Bcash lol coins at their acquisitik cost and not at their market value.  That’s because Bitmain paid over twice what those Bcash lol coins are now worth.  Suckers.   No wonder they want to IPO - they are desperate to dump their Bcash lol bags.

The Bitmain IPO is just an attempt to do a massive Over The Counter sale of 1 million Bcash lol coins.  I wonder if any Chinese are dumb enough to fall for it.

PSA: exchanges will start to wobble at under 6k. 1 or 2 self-hacks must be expected at times like that. Get your money off the exchanges as soon as you have done your business. Do not 'invest' more than you can afford to lose.
