Marcus Anonymint's posts...I mean "lambie slayer", are just too dumb too truthful and painful for me to have to courage to respond to now.  Micgoossens, you wouldn't happen to be a mechanical engineer? able to teach me how to talk to a woman without making my paranoid schizo face at her.

https://www.reddit.com/r/MGTOW/comments/aa2x42/well_lads_it_happened/ (reddit post from group of virgins pretending they could get women but just decided they had other stuff to do in their basement)

Virgin Roach is really upset about Goose having a woman and him being stuck in his basement with dead money silver bags.  Wink Cheesy This new bull market is gonna be brutal on you Virgin Roach, hope you have a good psychiatrist.

R0ach thought he was the luckiest man in the world when he saw he could buy a few hundred of kilograms of silver selling all his Bitcoin. He then thought that impressive amount of PM would make him richer than his wildest dreams. Nothing could have been further from the truth when you can't even buy a decent basement with all that pile of useless shit. It must have been a very frustrating experience.

From a TA point of view, $10 looks like a very strong support and potential bounce. But, r0ach is always talking about costs of production and oil as the main factor. Oil price is gonna dump really hard over the next couple of decades. As much as electrical cars increase their market share the more affected will be the demand of oil. Main demand right now is coming from cars all over the world. Another interesting side effect is that long distance flights will become even cheaper.

Having bags of silver is just fine, its a good metal with impressive qualities across a range of uses.      Its also an industrial metal mined in conjunction with many simple metals like lead, this aspect can lead to oversupply in an economy especially if under retraction.

Hence silver is not going to be used so often as monetary backing as gold which has its stricter supply demand to it.    The big thing all tokens used for cash or commerce are going to get judged on eventually after speculation is actual usage and utility at that moment.  As a physical metal, bags of silver has to deal with more real world costs such as storage and security but also its naturally more solid long term.    BTC or other blockchains are going to have to keep increasing their usage and efficiency seems like to me, to compete with all the other alternatives and ideas like notes based off silver or whatever is not nearly as cutting edge and transformable as crypto

Watching the silver price slowly fall back to $6 over the next decade will be even worse.

I cant imagine that happening especially in the long term, not without some nuclear winter scenario.   The metal is used and required, even if the world skipped its usage as a monetary asset.   If world growth takes some horrible knock, perhaps we ignore inflation and just label over it and call it growth then maybe silver is falling but $6 is saying the dollar is strong, stronger even and I find that prospect while deficits keep happening to be really unlikely.
Anything is possible of course

But, r0ach is always talking about costs of production

Common beginner error.  Miners always have a wide range of production costs.  The production cost that is publicly reported is an average.  But the standard deviation is significant.

That means as prices fall below the average “cost of production” the top quartile producers go broke.  Meanwhile the bottom quartile producers are still highly profitable and pumping out product.  

The average cost of production falls as the price falls as inefficient producers are driven to the wall, often with little or no impact on global output.  It is not unusual for major miners to take advantage of this mnarket pressure and actually step up production to squeeze out the competition, further depressing price through dumping.

So you are a fool to rely on “production costs” to prop up commodity prices.

From a miner’s perspective, if your production costs are not in the bottom quartile, you need to exit that resource because you have no business being there.

Another thing he always dismiss is that if demand is lower than offer from already produced silver there is no fucking need to mine any more (if the cost of production were higher than the market price).

You have received much more merits than most people here during the past couple of weeks. You are doing very well, but merits are very scarce and have to be shared among a lot of really great posters (much more than merits available unfortunately). Don't be greedy Wink

P.S.: Most people that have already merited the OP of a good thread, don't do it anymore unless some very exceptional post comes. Really, don't care about the merits, they don't mean that much.

Theres a lack of merit in the system possible, its not actively available perhaps is the problem.    I literally only give 1 at most now so I dont run out, I applied as source because not enough have done so I guess .    Its a bit of tight supply overall

I think its Warren Buffet who says he loves the cost of mining for gold on the high street.  His chain of pawn brokers is gaining gold at a substantially easier price then he could gain anywhere else.   Same for silver, theres a ton of silver spoons out there and so on.    In wars they just scrap every metal fence in sight, theres always supply of sorts and it should feedback to a higher price but doesnt have to be so immediately I guess
  
I know demand should be alot more then just silver sitting around but thats alot of slack in the system and maybe every metal has this type of availability.   Maybe scrappage is a bigger factor in weaker economies as anything goes.     Any time theres some kind of squeeze and people start referring to mining costs as a hard bottom, it probably isnt that hard and the market will supply via other means if hands are weak.  I think thats just how it goes, its why we get a spike down because in the moment price doesnt reflect the longer term considerations

We don't know exactly when Virgin Roach filled his Bat Mitzvah money bags with Silver and sold all his Bitcoins but Silver average closing price for 2015 was $15.66 https://www.macrotrends.net/1470/historical-silver-prices-100-year-chart and he sold all his Bitcoin in 2015 and went into Silver. Its doubtful he got more than $300 for each Bitcoin so had he hodled he would have, even after the nasty bear market, over 10x profit. Instead he made a mentally ill choice and sold his coins at the worst possible time to buy one of the few investments on Earth that has done jack shit for the last 3+ years. Silver is basically the same price now as it was in 2015, give or take a bit depending when he got in. Most likely he has lost a little bit while most assets on the planet were in a huge bull market. He would have been better off putting it in a Wells Fargo checking account and getting .1 percent interest per year. At least then he could have practiced talking to a woman without doing the schizo face flat effect thing when he went inside the bank. Cheesy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjvujPPMwpg Here is a paranoid schizophrenic being interviewed. Notice the stone face he has the whole time and the elaborate tales of persecution he concocts. This guy had delusions about Nazi spies in his family involved in narcotics gangs that were after him and undermining America by rigging elections. He was put in a hospital by his family. This is what Virgin Roach will devolve into if he isnt saved by Gembitz at the 100k party.

I never would come to the 100k party under my alias in this forum, my opsec was crushed long ago. Like said, I don't care if this user is connected with my real life persona, doesn't change a thing.

Oh and good luck getting my name from any records, you'd have to hack the hospital records I was in, it was never in any news or made public.

Don't worry, I'd never look for your name or anything. No point for me to do that, as I'd never cause any harm to anyone. I just mentioned it for all of us readers here, to be careful when we write about ourselves.

A guy in Turkey published in Facebook that he had 400 BTC. IIRC, he was kidnapped, tortured, and his 400 BTC stolen.

I have sometimes researched the IRL identities of a few people here. Just for the sake of it. I guess all the clearly identifiable ones already know they are somewhat exposed. And I don't remember anything about it.

But how do you know it's the same person. If I wanted to hide my real persona, I would just use somebody else's user name and avatar and send you on a wild goose chase.

Because I am good at what I do. When I am sure, I am. Sometimes I don't. That being said, yes, one of the best ways to increase your opsec is to include some false data (profile poisoning) to break any profiling attempt but, when incoherencies can also be detected and while you may not find out who the IRL person is, you will know it is a false positive. If you try to pose as someone else, probably the extended profiling comparison will show some mismatches unless you are really good at it.

Anyway, we are talking here about almost amateur level profiling.... when you have the resources of a state agency I would bet more than 80-90% of us would be easily identified one way or another. I know I would be, for example. I don't care.

P.S.: Your opsec is not really good (at first instance at least). But I guess you already know that.

I don't think the author is fudding.  I don't know how many qbits it would take to make an attack on early addresses feasible, but those qbits are certainly coming eventually.

I did the math once.  If we pointed all of the world's computing resources at hashing, it would take us until the heat death of the universe many times over before we cracked a single early address. 

Current QC is a joke. 

Eventually is a really long time away.

Even if proper QC was invented tomorrow, we could just hard fork to a QC hash algo.


You can be sure the NSA will have advanced QCs years before anyone else. They could have all addresses cracked before anyone even knows they're capable of doing so.

now that is my brand of tinfoil

Quantum computing is almost as much as a buzz word as blockchain. Many like to throw the term around yet do not fully grasp the concepts that are involved.

If you have a basic grasp of physics you can skip down to the article cited below..if not this video might help at least get you familiar with the basics. It presents 5 different levels of a persons understanding of what a quantum computer is and isn't. This is a sort of fluff piece by Wired and it came out several months ago I believe but is still relevant. The growth in this field over those few months is astounding and the constant innovation is eerily similar to what classical computing experienced at first. I am not sure if Moore's law will be applicable but it is growing extremely fast and I would expect within 10 years there will be a functioning usable machine capable of factoring large primes.

One of the current key problem's is fault tolerance. Another is keeping coherence at a steady state. These problems are getting solved and more reliable and robust systems are being built. Which leads us to the cutting edge..

Abstract

Topological insulators are materials that have a gapped bulk energy spectrum but contain protected in-gap states appearing at their surface. These states exhibit remarkable properties such as unidirectional propagation and robustness to noise that offer an opportunity to improve the performance and scalability of quantum technologies. For quantum applications, it is essential that the topological states are indistinguishable. We report high-visibility quantum interference of single-photon topological states in an integrated photonic circuit. Two topological boundary states, initially at opposite edges of a coupled waveguide array, are brought into proximity, where they interfere and undergo a beamsplitter operation. We observe Hong-Ou-Mandel interference with 93.1 ± 2.8% visibility, a hallmark nonclassical effect that is at the heart of linear optics–based quantum computation. Our work shows that it is feasible to generate and control highly indistinguishable single-photon topological states, opening pathways to enhanced photonic quantum technology with topological properties, and to study quantum effects in topological materials.

Topological photonics has the advantage of not requiring strong magnetic fields and features intrinsically high-coherence, room temperature operation and easy manipulation.

non stop sit & go's ... four way and HU looking forward Wink

I want to see a shot of you at the final table!

Just got back and got smoked the last 2 days (every fucking flush against me got there!). Cheesy

Next session probably sunday or somewhere next week i Will take a shot..... from yesterday i didn’t Made one, wasn’t going to very well Roll Eyes so didn’t had to much time for Fun  Undecided
Also played for handed sit and go tournament winner takes all, but mainly HU tournaments non stop each of us playing 2 of the others So two tables (not 8 or more crazy shit, cause we sit together as always and needed to be a bit of Fun talk etc as well)
