How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?


View Profile
December 17, 2018, 01:34:29 AM

I never touch alts because I don’t believe in them. And I can make bad decisions if I don’t believe in what I am trading.

I’ve got a stash of XRP, nowhere near as much as my bitcoin HODLINGS but would be nice to see it moon in the future.

I don't see any considerable ecosystem benefits of various shitcoins pumpening, even if my personal holdings might go up because of such pumpenings.

I understand that it is likely inevitable that several shitcoins are going to pump in the coming years, and that is why we cannot have nice things, and at minimum it will take 20 years for a decent portion of the population to recognize the differentiating value in bitcoin, and more realistically it will take longer than 20 years, perhaps approaching 50 years (I will either be dead or close to dead by then, so if I am posting in this thread, then there is some kind of AI going on or my account has been hacked).   

There won't be any AI or hacking, son! May Almighty bless you with a few hundred years of life!

Lots of peeps do not want to think about death, but so far everyone that has ever lived has died in about less than 80 years - frequently quite lower than that, and a few lucky ones might still have some energy and wits in the extreme cases of 100-ish.

....So, during the bear market, employ your time opening accounts in as many exchanges as you can, verify as needed, learn their UI, etc... During a bull market things happen very fast, and chances are that you won't be able to use that exchange you need to trade some fork/altcoin or use for fiat withdrawal if you have not done your homework well in advance.....




This is great advice.

The bear market will be long and tough to endure, and this is just the sort of work that will be making progress, instead of anxiously watching falling or stagnant prices.

Verification can often be a long process. It is also useful to be familiar with the rules of the exchanges and businesses you deal with.


Yup, and during a bull run is way longer if they are not simply collapsed. Also, for withdrawals, it is also useful THEY know you. And the best for that is having made some deposit to them in the past (and what better moment to do that than in a bear market?).

Exchanges do not like people coming out of nowhere and pretending to withdraw huge amounts of money.

Thanks for the tip.  I've been sticking all manner of things in the hole and I've found that one of those little red plastic extenders for canned air fits perfectly but I can't properly eyeball 2.1/2.5mm when I place it against a mm ruler ;(


My calipers are saying 2.8mm OD for the red tube on a WD40, but then maybe mines thicker than yours...

 Much appreciated yefi!   I left before I saw your reply and took the tube with me.  Turns out that 2.5mm was my best bet.

 Me too and I'm dragging mine today... should get some Christmas shopping done but I do not want to go near the malls.
Anyone know an easy way to figure out the ID of a 5.5mm barrel plug?  I can't believe I've lived this long without calipers.

edit: Also, anyone know where I can buy Florida oranges for shipping to Canada with Bitcoin?


Barrel plug dimensions might be easier if you have any brand markings, could do a search on a seller's site for proper dimensions. (you probably know this already)

While giving you information you possibly know already. I did a simple search for orange vendors, I found Overstock has fruit baskets, not Floridian--Californian.
https://coinmap.org may be of help for individual places in Florida that may ship to Canada.

 Thanks for the tip.   My PSU was Flypower PS60IBCAY5000S and searching for that game me so many shitty links to "replacement" parts that were not even close in power output that I gave up trying to find the specs.  It came with an AItech USB hub which I think is either out of business or had to change it's name for legal reasons... at any rate, I can't find them either.

 There is nothing like Florida oranges and grapefruit (especially the ruby reds).  Once a year I order a box around Christmas and I'll probably end up using my credit card but it would be nice to be able to use Bitcoin Wink

I came here for the Bitcoins, but stayed for the barrel plugs. This thread is hilarious, I love it Smiley

I would ask for instructions to build a homemade pipe bender.... but you guys wouldn't get the joke lol

Talking about that... where is Rosecactus? I am starting to be worried.


 Hey!  I'm trying to replace the lost Bitcoin hashing power so we have walls to Observe Wink

You need to goto The Dominican Republic and eat the fruit off the trees there if you think florida's fruit is good. Wink

Yea, that is good advice for someone starting out. Bear markets are good for getting your infrastructure set up with exchanges etc. I sold some btc back in the first quarter and I had to go through a whole process explaining where it came from. Everything worked out fine , but definitely take advantage of this time to get set up.

I would appreciate advice on what sort of proofs/documents did they request you to "explain where it came from". It might get handy to get them all ready in advance.

 We could to be just about close to bottom.






1- The 50 Moving Average on the monthly chart has only been tested twice and price never closed under it.
2-The last bear market of 2014-2015 we had almost exactly 85% drop from ATH which meets the target of the current value of the 50MA

 Well I burned out my power supply which was ~60 Watts output (@12V) and the plug is 5.5mm OD for sure but I was having trouble figuring the ID and there were two possibilities - 2.1mm and 2.5mm.  That plug specification was impossible to find.  Thanks for the help!  

 

I am not quite sure what you need. If you have not already solved it, a picture would be worth a thousand words Smiley

 I have solved it Wink  Pictures anyway!
The plug I needed is circled in green and on the right I have restored all1 of the recently lost Bitcoin hashing power to the network.



1 All of the Bitcoin hashing power lost when my PSU burned up.

I see Micgoossens is in here giving blowjobs for shitcoins instead of expelling the Jews at the Belgium protest after they attempted to destroy the country with the UN migration act.  I have created a sign for you so that you may now leave the house and go protest:

 Next Bitcoin moon cycle, I will cash out enough to go to the Dominican Republic then.  I prefer vine-ripened tomatoes so I can only imagine tree-ripened fruit.  The peaches I can buy here are usually as hard as stone when available and the kiwis from Italy are like wood and sour most of the time although I was able to buy some golden variety recently that are pretty darn juicy.
