I wonder what exchange they use. Don't tell me they use finex.

Absolutely no way in hell are they using a wild crypto.

The article repeatedly references 'blockchain' and nothing but.
Potentially to camouflage their FX tradings so as to not attract attention to a potential market inefficiency that can be abused with Bitcoin. Not saying it exists or that's what's going on, but there are various reasons not to just say "blockchain" when in reality you mean Bitcoin or some other crypto.

" Russia Will Buy $10 Billion in Bitcoin, Ditch US Dollar and Become Huge Crypto Whale: Russian Economist "  Shocked

Source : https://dailyhodl.com/2019/01/08/russia-will-buy-10-billion-in-bitcoin-ditch-us-dollar-and-become-a-huge-crypto-whale-russian-economist/

It seems like this might be fake news according to this article which is in Russian :

https://www.rbc.ru/economics/09/01/2019/5c36271a9a79472653e32608

I don't speak Russian but from what I got with Google Translator, Russians have changed $100 Billions into Yuans, Yens and Euros. There was no plan of changing them into BTC (or is this about another $100 Billions ?)


More about this fake news probability :

https://cryptoslate.com/fake-news-russias-alleged-10-billion-bitcoin-investment/
Kind of makes sense. Why would they announce a move that would massively shift the price against their favour in the short term instead of just stealth buying like JPM & co?

What's the saying? Oh yeah. The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.

Something to ponder: your carefully crafted high quality posts matter.

https://www.reddit.com/r/slatestarcodex/comments/9rvroo/most_of_what_you_read_on_the_internet_is_written

This is something I ponder on and off. That 1-3% figure is pretty far out. I'll bet there are people who've been reading this thread for longer than most of us have been here who've never even registered, let alone written anything.

I'm sure it's easy to be intimidated by the astonishing power and paint-stripping insight of titanic intellects such as the one I happen to possess. I still think they should make themselves known. We need a lurker amnesty.

Come on out. We won't hurt you.

Finally, someone polite enough to invite the guy in the corner.

I've been lurking since Spring 2012. AMA.

Welcome to participation, D. Lerk. 

Regarding your AMA statement, what has been your BTC investment strategy since 2012?   Have you bought/sold any?  Did you get distracted by any other cryptos?  Have you changed your strategies over the years?  or have you been scared out of bitcoin based on various FUD over the years?

The Bakkt delay is due to the fact that the company requires the approval of the US’s Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). According to information obtained by Longhash, the shutdown has moved that approval date back to April.

I am surprised because I don't really understand how to use it.  I have not really actively given trust feedback to anyone, so far.

Been trying to educate myself on the new DT settings & it seems only 5 people have me in their trust settings.
Bunch of bastards, I’ve got loads in mine as well, feeling very unloved Cheesy

Congrats to those selected for DT2 though.

LFC... I had seen that you had left me positive trust feedback a couple of months ago, but I have not left you any (or anyone else for that matter).  I might have to get around to leaving some trust feedback, at some point?


gentlemand

What the fuck?

I've loudly and longly proclaimed my total lack of understanding of this area.

I'd better outsource this sideline to my click farm in India.

I am not sure about outsourcing, but some kind of ELI5 could help, and yeah, maybe having an assistant could be helpful..?  How does the assistant thing work, MicG(s)?

Finally, someone polite enough to invite the guy in the corner.

I've been lurking since Spring 2012. AMA.

How does it feel to be vastly richer than the mongs in here who've spouted millions of words and achieved very little because of it?

I am supposed to be amongst the most wordy of posters in this thread.  That's what I have been told.

Let's say that I average about 50 words per post, and since I am at a bit more than 14k posts, that would be a bit less than 1 million words... (14,000 x 50 = 700,000).   Tongue Tongue

OTC Buying Pressure Increases

https://www.cryptoglobe.com/latest/2019/01/the-week-bitcoin-otc-volumes-up-bitwise-etf-bitmain-appoints-new-ceo/

"Buying pressure has reportedly increased at many notable OTC crypto trading desks. One of the largest OTC traders, Cumberland, tweeted that the imbalance between buyers and sellers spiked by 60% over the last week. Galaxy Digital saw robust buy back from asset managers, who previously sold assets for tax purposes. The nature of most of Paxos’ trading activity this year was buy tickets from emerging markets traders. Circle’s OTC desk saw a “come back” in January after elevated sell pressure in December. Genesis OTC volume is up by 50% year-on-year. According to a director of the fintech research firm Tabb Group, Monica Summerville, the OTC market is about two to three times larger than trading activity across the whole of the retail exchanges."

We heard the same story at $6k.  BS. 

There is genuine organic demand out there but I’m not looking to OTC, Wall Street bonuses or Chinese New Year to right the ship.

Year of the Doge will bring dollar parity to Dogecoin though. No doubt about it.

When I was younger I was able to sleep in the middle of a death metal concert. Now at my middle age, I can't stand a slightest noise. Not just while I sleep but also when I am awake. Sometimes I just want to strangle the people who talk way too loudly. I want to shout at their faces "SHUT THE FUCK UP!"

Btw I bought some more today. Wink

Patience remains a virtue, which should be more adhanced with age.  

I have come to understand that I am a bit less risk taking with personal confrontations as I have aged, because it seems quite likely that my face will not take a punch (or a sucker punch) as easily as I could have tolerated in my youth.

Tongue Tongue

We also are more conscious on what we would have to lose if we "win" the fight. It is not worth it unless for survival reasons.

I was very crazy not so long ago. I have changed a lot too. Life is much easier this way.

Well, yes.

I thought about some of these dynamics too.

Many years ago, when I was 18, and just barely leaving my parent's house, I did not own many assets, and by the time I acquired some education and life experiences, it took me well more than 10 to 15 years to rise out of the negative networth territory.

There are probably other factors, as well, that contribute to willingness to take risks, but I do understand that building wealth takes time, and having a larger stake in the system will cause incentives for less risk taking - especially when facing someone (on the street or otherwise) who appears to NOT have anything to lose by getting in a confrontation (even life or death). 

Of course, previously, we have had this conversation youth or wealth, and it is not like we have any kind of choice to be able to make ourselves more youthful, so there remains some satisfaction to have more wealth - even though I did not really seek wealth in my life pursuits, it has been nice that my life choices still arrived at some semblance of such, including what is currently (remains of) my bitcoin investment.

I was surprised too. How you get on the Default trust 2 trust list is because someone on the default trust 1 lists manually added you on their trust list. I went ahead into my trust setting, picked heirarchy view and found out that a user named tmfp placed you on their list. You can be removed from DT2 if one more person in DT1 decides to exclude you than put you on.(Or the people who orginally included you remove you from the their trust list) It appears that your name came up in the discussion about the new changes is a list here. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5095156.645 Some people are questioning why certain members are now in dt2 with no trust feedback history.  Some pruning is probably going to take place in the next few days. It's up in the air if any of us on the dt2 list will be on it for very long.

A "riot" of otherwise civilised citizens is nothing. Not dangerous at all.... How many have died? I don't know, but I don't think that many. Most probably less than people driving their cars (which is an statistically more dangerous activity).

As I said, you need to go other parts of the world (preferably in active war) to find out what humans are really capable of in terms of real life-threatening violence... if that's what you are into.

I wouldn't be surprised you would be scared like a pussy initially.... until you accepted the new reality and turned into full "survival mode".


P.S.: I really don't know how this turned from my preference to have noisy (but otherwise friendly and civilised) neighbours so that we can better come along with each other... to your preference for life-threatening experiences lol
Having slept on it, a few more thoughts.

Violence is not random. There are rules. If you play loud music next to neighbors who you know hate loud music then that's a provocation. You would not be blameless in whatever results from your actions. More info here: http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/ and here: http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/preattack.html , in particular the first few lines on that page.

As to the rest, some people are psychologically adapted to peacetime. People who like loud music and cops ready to haul people who don't like being forced to listen to loud music away. And others who are adapted for everything else. Those are the two basic psychological profiles that exist. Everything else is somewhere inbetween.

depends. youll have to meet our cats standards, which are much higher than ours.

you would also have to be ok with extremely loud music at all times of the day and night, mostly pink floyd, rush, lynyrd skynyrd and other southern rock, and punk. and the music the wife and i play on our instuments; hers played well and mine that sucks. plus random weapons fire at any time.

Sounds like my kinda people. As long as the random weapons fire was responsibly directed, that is. Smiley

yup it is. i own 13 acres, all woods. my firing range has a nice hill for a backstop. outside of that i wont fire unless i absolutely have identified the target and i consider it an immediate threat. although i have fired into the air when the occasional wild dog or such shows too much interest in me or the wife.

all in all its mainly a lot of practice rounds to keep my skills honed.
Firing in the air always bothered me. It has to come down, possibly on top of someone. Why not fire into the ground?
