I started with two arm sleeves, then a big chest piece. Moved onto my fingers now & then I want to cover hands after.

I still haven’t got a BTC tattoo, I will do that when the riches come because atm all I see is numbers on a screen, I haven’t physically been rewarded for my bitcoin investing YET!

i have been rewarded a little rewarded..... but its just been an EPIC ride in my life with lots of fun moments, much learnings and especially very
time-consuming part of the LAST years, so its been rewarded with ink on my arm, with for me 1 of the best BTC drawings that says everything in a fun cartoon, of what we need to know.

still want a BULL-BEAR cartoon as wel or something but not knowing what exactly, when i ink myself i have to be convinced 100% of the image offcourse Grin

You guys are completely nuts  Grin Grin Grin
What is this hat thing...
I don't feel part of the crew anymore, can't be in here too often.
I guess V8 has a reason not to have an avatar-hat.
And why is RF still here? He said he was gone for good  Grin


On a different note, I have been accumulating as much as I could lately. I'm waiting for the big jump and this time I will be ready.
Enjoy your day

 The hat begins and ends with Last of the V8s.
It can also come in handy if you're having a bad HairyMaclairy day.

 Here, take one - they're free.

Actually I prefer "geek". No tattoos, but many of my GFs were strippers. Comes with the turf.

You know what they call a musician without a girlfriend? Homeless.

Decided to edumakate myself with a little weekend research on Bakkt and promptly fell into a rabbit hole.

Bakkt could certainly have a far larger near-term impact than Cboe or any others' ETF, as they are targeting both consumers and institutions in the same go. Having Starbucks as a partner could be a real game changer, the epitome of retail transaction exposure.

Also good to see some of the more disillusioned Wall Street veterans changing teams to root for crypto, and putting pressure on the SEC/CFTC to not fuck it all up.

Overall, I'm feeling more medium-to-long term bullish with Bakkt coming, although I think the year end price will end up as a wash. Hard to compete with the US midterm elections and other geopolitical turmoil, news wise. A rather inopportune time for Bakkt's release or a crypto bull run.

Bitcoin Core Developer Joins Forces With Former Morgan Stanley Exec To Warn SEC
https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeldelcastillo/2018/09/21/bitcoin-core-developer-joins-forces-with-former-morgan-stanley-exec-to-warn-sec/#7dd9ce435baf

Quote
“We believe that current SEC rules surrounding custody do not reflect the risks inherent in managing digital assets and do not use the technical strengths of the technology. These technical strengths have the potential to lead to a stronger, more robust custody environment. To better understand these possibilities, to build to strengths of technologies, and to not harm its advantages, we recommend that the SEC engage with those who are experienced with technology, such as cryptographic engineers, software developers, Bitcoin exchanges, smart-contract designers, blockchain developers, and existing digital-asset managers to ensure best practices are implemented.”

Just a week after Caitlin Long, a co-author of the letter, first expressed similar concerns in an article on Forbes, Bakkt CEO Kelly Loeffler published a blog further elaborating on the planned cryptocurrency exchange services. In the post Loeffler clarified that the “bitcoin contract will not be traded on margin, use leverage, or serve to create a paper claim on a real asset.” If the exchange follows the guidelines Loeffler laid out, it would put an end to many of the concerns expressed in the letter.

ICE Creating New Cryptocurrency Market: A Double-Edged Sword
https://www.forbes.com/sites/caitlinlong/2018/08/03/ice-creating-new-cryptocurrency-market-a-double-edged-sword/#5f0b5ebb1015

Quote
But it’s also a double-edged sword, because it’s likely the beginning of Wall Street creating financial claims to bitcoin out of thin air (and not backed by actual bitcoins), which could offset some of Bitcoin’s algorithmically-enforced scarcity.

Thankfully, for existing bitcoin investors, HODLers are likely to make that difficult by storing most bitcoins outside of the financial system and making it the epitome of “hard to borrow.”

The “R” and “C” words, rehypothecation and commingling, are as antithetical to how Bitcoin works as they are integral to how Wall Street works.

Three part series exploring building rivalry between cryptocurrencies and Wall St by same author, pretty enlightening perspectives:

ICOs Were 45% Of IPOs In Q2 2018, As Cryptos Disrupt Investment Banks

Quote
Cryptocurrency capital markets--which are less than 3 years old--are challenging the supremacy of traditional investment banks for raising new capital, as they raised 45% of the amount raised by traditional IPOs (initial public offerings) during Q2 2018.

Incumbents have been complacent about the rise of cryptocurrency markets and ultimately will not take this trend lightly.

Racing To Fix Wall Street: ICE, Cryptocurrencies And Enterprise Blockchain

ICE’s move renders many of Wall Street’s enterprise blockchain projects obsolete

Short of this, the SEC and CFTC should beware of the heightened risks with allowing clearinghouses, custodians and warehouses to hold cryptocurrencies in omnibus accounts. They instantly become “honeypots” for hackers.

The Bakkt Blog, CEO Kelly Loeffler
https://medium.com/bakkt-blog

Quote
We’re taking a transparent approach to engage across the industry as we begin testing and onboarding in November, and trading and warehousing in December, subject to CFTC approval.

Our patent-pending market model is focused on mitigating risk while creating opportunities for institutions to serve their clients in a regulated framework for digital assets. This means creating a solution that both provides wanted exposure and limits unwanted exposure. A critical aspect of our model is ensuring that our clearing members are well protected from a risk perspective through a conservative market design, including:

o a requirement of full prefunding for all Bitcoin trades

o allowing clients to onboard directly to the warehouse, meaning that clearing members will not be required to handle cryptocurrency themselves, and

o a new, separate guaranty fund for Bitcoin, fully funded by Bakkt and ICE, helps ensure that non-defaulting clearing member capital is not at risk in the waterfall

These points should also eliminate misconceptions regarding commingling, leverage and rehypothecation, which are not features of our offering. We are committed to serving the market in a productive and secure manner as customer needs and regulatory frameworks evolve.

Not so much about crypto but a nice overview of some economic macro themes into 2019: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-20/ecb-worst-run-central-bank-world-feliz-zulauf-sees-30-plunge-us-stocks-taking-world?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+zerohedge%2Ffeed+%28zero+hedge+-+on+a+long+enough+timeline%2C+the+survival+rate+for+everyone+drops+to+zero%29

If the US stock markets indeed go down with 25-30%, I think this would support the 'Bitcoin to $4,800 thesis' before the next bull run.

That would suggest a lot of patience.

Going to meet someone that has about 2,500 little puzzles they need to solve.  We will have a chat about whether I can solve them in a way that is economic for them and profitable for me.

Where you going ?
How does someone find themselves needing to solve 2500 puzzles?
