In January 2017, after 3 years of hodling, i really wanted to sell all my crypto and have a good night sleep and normal life. But I didnt. Now, i have the same feeling, just sell all crypto and finally sleep peacfully. But i wont... Maybe the end is near, maybe we wont go to 1k.

I was way to grownup to giggle at this. I didn't even see it. [/liemodecancel]
I'm also of the opinion that we need to retest the 200 WMA. Smash it or bounce off it, I can't call (it's a market, inherently unpredictable, so neither can anyone), but we need to revisit it on volume. Back in 2014 there was this myth that no cycle ever bottomed below the top of the last bubble, i.e. $266 at that point. The 200 WMA being unbreachable is the 2019 equivalent.
The Delphi Digital report was really interesting, also forecasting a bottom soon based on 1 year+ UTXOs: https://www.delphidigital.io/utxo
Not sure how that chimes with the most recent article about 3-5 year coins moving though. Could just be the final phase.

Morning WO's, have a great weekend.

Smoking some hopium the other day, was enough to make me realize the absence of Lambie_Slayer, silently taking a ride with our two morons of honor.



Earlier that day, virgin r0ach bravely had confessed his nano penis phenomena to gembitz.



Last but not least, both agreed to double their initial order since 2015, now buying $2 worth of BTC at the price of $199.

It will all be worth it in the not too distant future. I’ve been HODLING since 2015, there has been lots of times I want to sell it all & stop wasting my life checking the price. I really think we’ll see over $50,000 per bitcoin after the next halving though. I’m probably going to sell a large portion then & buy a big house & retire.

This is what I use:
https://imgflip.com/i/2qxztc

Yeah, cost me $3718.

In fact nearly $20k at one point...

Here is what I use:

https://i.ibb.co/Ht291qc/IMG-7568.jpg

Cost me a few satoshis and I've been saving my bitcoins on it since last year. I don't see the point of hardware wallets if you are in bitcoin to hodl them.

To spend them actively i would still use my iphone for the job insead of hw wallets since I would carry my wealth in a paper wallet and my play money on my phone. But most importantly, it is just easier with a phone.

To me money spent on hw wallets is a waste. I would buy more crypto instead.

It's really all about the value of the amount you are storing, and therefore the risk.

Paper wallet is fine for smaller amounts, but...
- Where do you store the paper wallet safely
- What happens if you are burgled and the thief steals the wallet (wether or not they know what to do with it)
- Where do you store a backup, (and increase the risk of compromise)?
- What happens if your house burns down?
- Something gets split on the wallet and obscures the ink.
- 3 Years later, and you've simply lost the wallet, or thrown it out accidentally.
- When you spend the wallet and enter the address into a computer, are you 100% sure that computer is totally free from trojans/viruses, an attacker could   steal the funds on the happy day when you cash-out.

These risks are small (ish) but if you had $100k or $100m, they would be much more important.

A paper wallet requires multiple diverse location copies, but each copy increases the risk of theft, and you need to trust someone else to look after other copies (family?)
So you can securely split the secret (Shamir's secret splitting https://iancoleman.io/shamir/) , you can then choose how many parts of the total eg. 2 of 3 are needed to reconstruct the private key,
Then split it - 1 copy with a good friend or your lawyer, 1 with a family member, and 1 in your safe.
As its 2 of 3, 1 person can lose their key and its not a problem, and both the family member and friend need to collude to steal you coins.
You could of course increase this from 2 of 3 to any value such as 4 of 7, whatever makes sense to you.

When you come to spend the paper wallet, you should use a clean machine, install a new version of the OS ,and then only the wallet software.
I wouldn't use brand new software releases and I would check the authenticity of the code using release signing keys or hashes.

If you really want to do it properly, you should probably read Glacier protocol https://glacierprotocol.org/, it discusses all the risks and possible solutions, you can then cherry pick the things you think are important to you.

You want to also factor in your own death to the scheme. Making sure 'your' people know about, and can actually  get possession of the coins without you.

I took a nexo loan so could enjoy my life a bit now, and wont need to sell BTC and go back to work, but damn, this bear market is getting on my nerves!

How do you secure your security seed? Honest question

Writing/engraving it down in multiple places of trust. No photos are allowed.
Also switching around a couple of words, would "secure" the seed in the event of an intruder finding it.
Need to remember which words of course.

Does nobody keep their coins in their passphrase protected wallet.dat

I’ve never had any issues. I only use that laptop to store my coins. Never had a problem, I do no other tasks on it, it helps that I’m not an idiot who clicks suspicious links & downloads movies/torrents etc.

I’ve seen some sad stories on here over the years of people losing their life savings, it’s neaely always major user error though. People downloading bogus Electrum wallets, trying to claim shit coins etc.

So, while things are not in the bull zone yet, do you not think it 'possible' (as my hopium-addled brain thinks) that this is finally the beginning of the end?

Yes it is definitely the beginning of the end.  The problem is, "the end" is quite a large mind space.  It will likely take up most or all of the 2019 calendar year.  

Personally, I am thinking a dull sideways, but slowly upward grind (sure, with fits and starts) from here to the end of this year. Not a bull run yet - but past the definitive end of the bear market.  

Too optimistic for me.  We have no foundations on which to build a bull run yet.  And we need to break the bearline.  Those foundations could form tomorrow, but they are missing for now. 

I think too many people would rather buy at 3XXX and risk it dipping than be forced to buy at 4K or 5K if Bitcoin has a French Weekend when they aren't watching.

Yes, it is critically important to be hedged against the upside.  

If there is to be a new ATH, according to pattern - with the order of increase we saw between the last two, then (to extrapolate) what is the difference buying at 3K or 2K if it might hit 50K inside 2 years?

I have said before, we could hit $280k by December 2021.  I still think this is possible.
