So there was a fake bitcoin by a man called Ver called 'bcash', which failed.
Nov 15th there will be a fake of that by a man called faketoshi called 'fake bcash', which will fail.
There's another fake fork of it to come by a fake snake called 'fake snake bcash', which will fail.

CCN reported earlier this week that Hayes, a former Citigroup trader, is now predicting that the bitcoin downtrend could last another 18 months, mirroring the “nuclear bear market” the crypto industry experienced in 2014 and 2015. Writing in Friday’s edition of the BitMEX Crypto Trader Digest, Hayes doubled down on that portentous outlook.


Sure... Lot's of things "could" happen regarding BTC's price performance between now and the end of year, including down to $2k... but so fucking what?  We should not be spending our time and efforts on more extreme probabilities rather than more likely scenarios, right?

I suppose the article is emphasizing the change of rhetoric of some "important" peeps, such as Hayes.. .assuming that he is NOT just talking out of his ass for that particular assertion?

If they suggest "$50k in 2018", and then later they say "could down to $2k", it still remains important to attempt to figure out context of these kinds of BTC predictions and the kinds of probabilities these supposedly "important" sorcerers are assigning to various events at certain times (and perhaps just a spike in price too)  - and then in the end, does it matter what the sorcerer says if such BTC price prediction are provided as conclusions and without much if any context?

At this point, it does seem a bit more plausible that down to $2k could be reached in 2018 rather than $50k, but the greater probability of down to $2k in 2018 does NOT mean that it is likely for either seemingly extreme event to happen... perhaps less than 10% either way, no?  

Getting more specific:  Maybe below 10% odds for down to $2k, and perhaps below 5% odds for $50k?  

Both price performances are possible and just because down to $2k has a bit higher odds does not make it a very reasonable to be asserting such statement as if its odds were higher than what it really is.

By the way, I am just SOMAing(tm-d_eddie) a bit regarding my actual numbers.....just to assign some approximate probabilities that might be currently quasi-reasonable for btc price movements between now and the end of this calendar year.

I usually roll my eyes when I hear "Taxation is theft", but this?

Them wanting to tax the cash in my wallet sounds crazy to me...

Yet you guys are talking about it like it's most normal and reasonable thing.

Mind-boggling.
Yeah I think we all just see the writing on the wall, you're not getting away from the Government taking their share especially if it has value and we all agree Bitcoins going to long term go up. I mean you can buy things directly for btc but I think vendors include sales tax in most of it. (Newegg for example)

But the tax on just your holdings fuck that including cash, no thanks. Is that some socialism bullshit that's favored there?

Paying your taxes is not socialism, it's patriotism.

Anyway I much prefer the way the taxes work in NL, no taxes whatsoever on trading including 'cashing out' (should really be called cashing in btw), just a very reasonable taxation on holdings, excluding the first 25k and minus debts. Most of the world is much worse off having all these taxable events like trading. They must all be socialist countries then I guess.

Having cashed some out late last year and now suffering with having to pay 20% on it come January, I have actually researched the NL system of a sub 2% tax on value held, even looked at living there fro long enough to cash out.  It's way better than 20% on what you cash out!

FWIW:  US is similar to the UK; 20% on capital (non-earned) gains.  And having lived over the pond I can tell you, dealing with the IRS is (to say the least) 'not pleasant'.  By the time you factor in local taxes, healthcare insurance costs etc.  It's actually not really cheaper in the USA compared to (say) the UK.  Unless you're very rich, but that is the same anywhere - if you're rich enough, you can afford not to pay taxes.  Taxes are for the great unwashed, not the rich.  The truly rich have 'schemes'.

I did ask about offshore tax efficiency etc. at a posh accountants recently and was effectively told 'you can't afford it'.  Plus ça change!

Or maybe sideways, this could be the direction....

Well, of course, sideways (especially within about a $1k to $2k price range) would be way more likely than asserting either down to $2k or up to $50k in this calendar year, and I suppose that is part of my irritation regarding the above cited article. 

When we are talking about future possible BTC price scenarios, there are all kinds of directions that could play out, and some of the scenarios are more likely than others, including the BTC price staying somewhat in the same territory that it is now, and the outcome of events only become 100% after they play out.. so I just become a bit irritated when BTC price predictions are described out of context and without really exploring the context of possibilities (which seems to be a common occurrence in BTClandia).   

By the way, I have heard Hayes interviewed before, and he is certainly no dummie, so therefore, I doubt that he only considers future BTC possibilities in one direction - even though it remains certainly reasonable for him to either bet on one direction (such as down) and to assign high probabilities to one direction, such as down (but those kinds of specifics seem to be quite absent from the ccn.com article).

How the does he know that?
Trace Mayer was saying that market would go to 28K, it went to 20K and stopped cold.
Now Trace is saying that 3.5K is possible, however, maybe it's already done it's bear cycle (mostly).

Nobody knows what the market would do, and if they do, ostensibly, they are not going to tell us.

Is 2k possible. maybe, but is it likely-f, NO.

From where are you getting the Trace Mayer assertion of $3.5k is possible?  Is that a recent statement, and what is the context of such statement? 

As you have already astutely asserted, I think that both of us have recognized that there is a decent difference in the picture that might be portrayed between purporting that some BTC price movement is "possible" and ascribing "likelihood" to that same BTC price movement.

yeah....

If you believe that a band of thugs extracting what they want from you at gunpoint under color of law is in any way legitimate, what the hell difference is it if they do it based upon income or based upon current net holdings? From an ethical standpoint, it is the exact same thing.

Band of thugs and government is not the same thing.  You seem to be ascribing government as if it were a "band of thugs" and then attempting to be technically correct because you are saying that the "band of thugs" is acting under "color of law."

Your framing amounts to faulty logic, even though anti-government folks like to talk like that, if you are mixing up the difference between government and thugs (or at least presuming government to be "thugs").

WAY better than nothing. Though "portfolio cash value" is not the same as USD Fiat on deposit. It could be all on Tesla stock for what we know or any sort of high risk high yield investments.

The portfolio may even be in the form of Tether!

Quote
P.S.: Also one single signature from some UNIDENTIFIED person and not even an official bank seal..... It's almost comical when you are certifying almost 2 Billion USD.

For reals, dude.

"USD Fiat on deposit" is nothing if you don't know their debts. i.e. money could've been borrowed for a day and deposited to the account short term just for the letter. Bottom line, it's most likely illegal and will always require trust in 3rd party. Those that don't know history are doomed to repeat it.

Yes. It doesn't say anything about liabilities. That being said I don't think it is that easy for a shady crypto exchange to obtain a (nowhere near) 1.8Billion short term lending at *ANY* cost. The risk of those founds being frozen "in transit" are HUGE. So it must probably be theirs OR the bank is in it OR everything is fake.


What if it's a photoshoped document all together, don't think banks are legally allowed to confirm it to outside parties? Anything outside of full audit by big four is pretty useless, so why bother

From where are you getting the Trace Mayer assertion of $3.5k is possible?  Is that a recent statement, and what is the context of such statement?  

All the people who claimed I was speaking "fud" when the price was $20k and I said it was going to plummet to $4.2kish and likely stabilize there with a likely flash crash to $3k before it stabilizes are now basically copying my statement word for word except 10 months late.  This of course assumes bitcoin has to obey some type of general accounting practices and they don't just print a quadrillion tethers out of thin air to make the price do whatever.  

Am I a buyer at $4k?  Nope.  Not when the price of metals is this low.  I mean, they even 'discovered' the national debt is $40 trillion instead of $20 trillion then tried to cover it up under "national security".  Price of gold with typical 90%+ correlation to US debt should already be $2500ish now.  With a $40+ trillion national debt it would be $5000 an ounce gold ($166 an ounce silver in the bull run to 30:1 GSR, unless they peg 15:1 and it's $320 silver).

Some random economist talking about his discovery of the govt's "missing" $21 trillion:

'Splain me the difference?

If something is unethical for one person to do to another, then that thing is unethical for any group (e.g., so-called 'government') to do to any individual. For if the government gets its authority by assent of the governed, that government has no legitimate power that those governed do not have to begin with.

If something is unethical for one person to do to another, then that thing is unethical for any group (e.g., so-called 'government') to do to any individual.

Except "unethical" is a completely subjective, meaningless word.  You have to cite some type of fixed point in the universe in order to define what is ethical or not in order to see what strays away from that position.  This is why Hitler said "like anything else, Nature is the best teacher".  In this manner you have defined a fixed position, such as observing mammals like dogs and cats, they typically don't attempt cruel and unusual punishment like torture.  As in Vlad the Impaler impaling each other on stakes, or crucifixion.  

You could define natural law in this manner as things that don't stray from evolutionary purpose.  If the activity is just plain psychotic in nature like killing people for sport and wearing their skin as a mask like in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then you've obviously strayed from natural law.  As for whatever medical experiments the Japanese or Nazis might have done, I consider modern medicine virtually identical to some form of satanism in practice, and far more people than Japanese and Nazis do it.  It's in every country on earth.

What's the difference in sacrificing a creature to some likely imaginary demons in hopes of them granting you power and modern medicine sacrificing some creature in order to try and be granted some hidden knowledge? It's the same thing, just one is possibly more effective than the other.
