I remain confident that Bitcoin is intended to be decentralised and depermissioned. Maybe you were thinking of XRP?

You are cranky today.  Maybe it’s a bottom signal.    

Edit:  the floor is holding surprisingly strong at the moment.  Too early to call bottom but it’s interesting to watch.   Am a bit wary of these stories of institutional investors in the OTC market. It all sounds a bit Chinese NY / Wall St bonuses to me.

    President Trump has been briefed on the market sell off this afternoon. A senior White House official gives me this comment now: “This is a bull market correction. It’s probably healthy. This will pass and the US economy remains strong.”

Tether is trading at $0.98 USD.  It’s a risk premium of dealing with Bitfinex.

Users need to download the Samurai wallet and the TxTenna for Android devices and pair it with the  Tenna Mesh Device. After this the user will be able to create and sign transactions offline using bitcoins, the transactions will relay across the goTenna Mesh devices until the transaction is received or sent by the final online Android device.

Yeah, crap, I just learned about it today, started working on it for a bit.  I found the line at 310, but that's about it.  Then saw in posts that people were way past that already.
Don't think my knowledge, skills and intelligence would have been sufficient to find it if I heard about it from the start, so probably a personal time-saver that it was found today  Grin .

I would surely not come forward if I had win. Would be too busy deciding between a bit less than 1 million after taxes or more than 2 million of "out of the system" money. Probably would have chosen first option in the end, but who knows.

Actually this premium is quite reasonable. Bitfinex dollars are more valuable than Fed dollars! Bitfinex dollars can be instantly converted into bitcoins in contrast to Fed dollars that must overcome many bank-related obstacles till they're credited to your exchange account.

I have done my fair share of CTF's in the past... but I am sure I would have not solved this one even if I had devoted 100% to it from the beginning. Not a chance. Too many factors to "guess" instead of simply "research" in this one.

I would hodl (anyone who isn't an idiot would) and post dick pics all over the forum. Not even the small winners have come forward. Until I see the 310 btc solution I would say there was never a 310 btc reward and the guy still has his own bitcoin in a different wallet... The smaller amounts, sure. Maybe. For shits and giggles.

An interesting take on the NVT Signal: “How to Value Cryptoassets (Part I)” https://medium.com/whaleblocks/how-to-value-cryptoassets-part-i-49f244962c7d

But somehow it seems off for the current situation (see link in my comment beneath the article).

I’m not sure how they account for transaction batching in the NVT calculation, as the number of transactions is falling due to batching.


Thanks, makes sense. I found some useful info here but it dates from May 2018.

Key paragraph:
Quote
3.4 Has transaction count become an unreliable measure of Bitcoin’s usage because of batching?
Yes. We strongly encourage any analysts, investors, journalists, and developers to look past mere transaction count from now on. The default measure of Bitcoin’s performance should be “payments per day” rather than transaction count. This also makes Bitcoin more comparable with other UTXO chains. They generally have significantly variable payments-per-transaction ratios, so just using payments standardizes that. (Stay tuned: Coinmetrics will be rolling out tools to facilitate this very soon.)

More generally, we think that the economic value transmitted on the network is its most fundamental characteristic. Both the naive and the adjusted figures deserve to be considered. Adjusting raw output value is still more art than science, and best practices are still being developed. Again, Coinmetrics is actively developing open-source tools to make these adjustments available.

I lack the knowledge to see whether and if so, how this would impact the NVT Signal.

The questions are whether NVT Signal looks at transaction volume and whether batching would distort that metric (not necessarily but that depends on how NVT is calculated of course). Google is not giving me articles with conclusive direction. Willy Woo seem to confirm that batch transactions do not impact his NVT ratio: https://twitter.com/woonomic/status/973708939714965504

I am curious.

BS, he provided a signed message which everyone can check.  If it was fake, he would have been called out on it immediately.  The only thing you might think is that he sent it back to his own address, but I highly doubt that.
