The price...

FML

May is too far away. I need to buy a few things now.

I guess I convert from my US dollars to bitcoins to baht instead of just selling at these prices.

I am sorry to hear that Elwar.

I had rather assumed that you, chasing your dreams with such abandon, were well and truly set up from the previous runups.

Perhaps you are more courageous than I realized.

I don't understand any clear explanation regarding how someone like Elwar could be doing very badly, unless there is some part of the story that is left out.

Seems to me that he made a really BIG gamble when BTC prices were in the $500s and even overleveraged into BTC, but why wouldn't that overleveraging have paid off, even if he has to shave off some BTC from time to time in order to cover expenses and even if he is only getting  6x or 7x returns rather than 30x?

Any of us who chose to place a very large amount of our total reserves into bitcoin is going to have to cash out from time to time because the world remains run on fiat and priced in fiat, at least expected for a considerable time into the future.

Personally, I believe that it remains much more prudent to have some of your cashflow figured out in fiat for 6-12 months in advance - and if bear trends continue for longer, then the next plan is going to involve dipping into bitcoin, especially if you have caused such a situation in your own way of keeping a large amount of your total value in BTC.

So far in BTC's history, such a plan to keep a large amount of value in BTC will have worked for a large number of folks, if they front load, and if their cashing out plan has at least a few years.   Actually, if there was front loading in late 2013 in the supra $1k price territory, it would have taken 4 years to get into the break even territory, but then to really prosper after that, as long as there was an ability to hang on for a bit longer.

Who knows if such plans to frontload and to have 3-4 year plus timelines will continue to pay off in bitcoin in the coming years?  Does seem that odds remain decently well in such plans and practices continuing to be quite profitable, even though risky, but there likely could be a need to have several years in the personal plan's timeline in order to be able to really insure that the reaping of benefits is going to be profitable without being forced to withdraw too much of the value during low price periods.

I need to buy a boat soon...I don't want to sell at the bottom.

I have cash set aside that I can live on through 2020...but not "I can buy a sail boat" cash...puts me closer to living through 2019.

Then again...on the seastead I will only need to pay for food that I don't catch. And about $12 for Internet each month.
No property taxes, electric, water...
Occassional propane and gasoline re-fill. So maybe I am putting myself to 2025 funds...

Sure, looks like a very simple 'DIY ATM' that anyone can use. Hand over cash, merchant (or whoever) prints you out a slip with a code you can redeem into your wallet. Not sure what's going on behind the scenes but I assume it's a little more sophisticated than printing out a plaintext privkey.

^Looks interesting. Says something about being redeemable in a Samurai wallet.  

So an escrow service with a 4% fee.

Elwar

Why don’t you lease a boat for 18 months?  

https://www.boatbureau.com/boat-rentals-thailand/

Maybe you can do some sort of long term deal because those are silly short term prices.

Buy when the market bounces back.

The WO thread is my version of a morning newspaper. I read it in bed before I can bring myself to get up for another boring AF day Smiley

Any time I've checked out boat rentals you can usually buy the boat for about 4 to 6 months of rental.

I'm planning on buying a cheap $10k small boat now then buy something better later. It just needs to float and get me 12 nautical miles. We're also in high season here so all the boat prices are more expensive.

If the bank flys you to a foreign country, takes away your passport, locks you in a compound and makes you carry out sex acts for pennies a day until you pay off the loan, yes.  Otherwise probably not.
Just answer the bloody question. It's amazing that lefties always do the same thing. Lots of words that say very little, and in as confusing and distracting a way as possible. Yes or no?

If X yes otherwise no.

How is that not a correct answer?

Don't bring left ideologies in that debate. Bank is shit that's all what left has to say about that.
There is a reason he doesn't want to give a straight answer. I outlined it above. The more ambiguity, no matter how small, the more sophistic options later down the road.

Good morning, statist fucks of the WO thread. Nice job teaching the controversy overnight. Your handlers will be pleased you wasted so much of everyone's time and took the focus away from the real issues at hand, such as sovereignty of the individual.
Bitcoin will get you in the end, so you just carry on.

So what's the deal with Coinbase limits? I logged in after a while and I'm limited to $200 per day transfer from my bank account.

I have everything verified. How do I request an increase?

@Globb0
We don’t have any sailor boat or yacht, but my father has a large dubble engine ZODIAC (think 2 times 350pk)
But still just a rubber boat Roll Eyes
Its lot of Fun when I join them on it, but for myself I don’t like to own one cause I hate all the maintenance Roll Eyes

I do like very much when i’m on a holliday and to cruise on a very local boat just cruising down rivers, Some animal spottings and having just a peacefull quiet time
Hope to be on one in a near future Wink

It can be boring in periods of sideways price action but there are some clued up posters in here, some good chart analysis but best of all when we’re in an epic bull run this place is great Cheesy

The memes, the happiness is really something.

Here’s to the next epic bull run, probably 6-12 months after the next halvening Smiley
