anybody else get a totally whack 1099-K from Coinbase?

these numbers are absurd

1099-K is not a form that most individuals have ever seen. It is for reporting non-cash money flows - typically used to track credit card receipts for retailers and such. Why Coinbase thinks this is an appropriate filing for individuals is a mystery.

I've not yet looked at mine this year. Last year's was yuuuge. But it did not tabulate any sort of profit, but rather sheer volume of transactions. I filed based on my own tabulation of capital gains, which was a scant fraction of the flows shown on the 1099-K. I have not (as of yet, anyway) been audited for 2017.

So the figures you are seeing on your 1099-K are likely not absurd. Probably correct, just irrelevant.

New Decree by Executive Order: No pants shitting until BTC goes below $3100.

That is the bottom thus far, set ~Dec 15th.

But its wrong

Its like no pants shitting as long as BTC is alive and being bought and sold .....

Fuck Lambos.

Fuck Yachts.

When it moons beyond $20k, Rick and I are going to buy some property in Denver, build a big-ass warehouse on a portion of it, register with whoever we need to register with, and become farmers... and stuff...

Living out retirement in a state friendly to the herb, sounds like a horticulturalists "Happily Ever After".

Do not see the political/legal landscape changing in Texas for at least another decade, otherwise I would invest in the real-estate/infrastructure here.

Then again, having to commute back-and-forth between CO and TX seems like a nightmare, so, maybe it's best left to the realm of dreams...

Warehouse to be a farmer? I recommend the NW for cheaper electricity, perhaps somewhere near a hydro-electric source. Texas will be the last state next to Utah of course that would legalize cannabis. Though by the time BTC moons again cannabis might be not considered schedule 1 drug and federally might not be such an issue.

Destroying bitcoin - whose traffic is not even obfuscated, coins not even fungible, and also entirely centralized - is child's play for the govt.

The fact the govt doesn't attempt to stop bitcoin AT ALL and instead endorses people to use digital shitcoins and passes bi-partisan, pro-bitcoin laws in the US govt is the real red flag here.
New offline technologies like opendime (or tangem) solve this issue. You can safely transfer BTC offline and the government can't track the transaction neither the owners.

Guys one question for all senior members. What's so special about hats in your profile. I have never seen this craze in any other thread so far. Plz tell me.

I think it somehow relates to Trump MAGA hat.. sort of american fetish

This guy nailed it. Everyone wearing a hat in this thread is a die hard Trump fanatic. MAGA!

I would never wear the MAGA hat but this one I could :

Bitcoin Buys Takeout on Germany’s Largest Food Delivery Platform With Over 13,000 Restaurants and Lots of Pizza

https://dailyhodl.com/2019/01/27/bitcoin-buys-takeout-on-germanys-largest-food-delivery-platform-with-over-13000-restaurants-and-lots-of-pizza/

"Germany’s largest online food delivery platform has swelled to over 13,000 restaurants and accepts Bitcoin for payment. The Berlin-based Lieferando.de operates across the country to deliver all types of culinary dream dishes, from fancy to fast food.

Online customers can pay with Bitcoin, credit cards, Sofort or PayPal. When paying with Bitcoin, the company says it does not charge any fees, while it costs an additional 6%, to pay with PayPal and credit cards.

Lieferando is owned by Takeaway.com, one of the largest online food ordering websites in the world, which first started accepting Bitcoin in July 2017.

The company says the payment option has been well received by its customers. Takeaway also powers Bitcoin payments for deliveries in the Netherlands, Austria and Poland."

".... 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...."

It is amazing to categorize a belief according to an arbitrary line drawn in the sand against a political viewpoint as if the 'righties' are not just as evil in their arguments or practices.

The whole 2 party democratic system is full of shit actors with shit beliefs, all are liars---performers to maintain their political positions.

For the record, the US has the largest number of slave labor in the form of prisoners @ 665 per 100,0000 persons.
As a kid I just didn't care for politics because I didn't know shit anyways so had no way of forming a sensible opinion. Now the more I learn about it the more it reveals itself as a farce. Little more than tribalism in a new form. Or opium for the masses v2.

It's entertaining, but whoever thinks that real change is made in politics hasn't been paying much attention.

I never noticed that Takeaway took an extra 6% for Paypal/CC. Been using them for a while with and without BTC though.

I understand that you are not talking about 100% of a guy(gal)'s total investment portfolio, but likely instead you are referring to NOT going "all in" with what portion of value the guy/gal has allocated towards bitcoin investing.

Personally, I never recommend going "all in" but instead always being prepared for either price direction (both in other words).





I have to admit that I am not trading BTC myself, but I respond to trading related posts . My trading occurs mainly in the normal stock market. I have found it is always easier to make correct calls when there is no real position at stake : Emotions don't come into play so much.

The BTCT forum has become a theoretical testing ground for me, and I just offer my own opinion FWIW along with all the other mixed content.

So, I just think myself into the position of a trader when I make that sort of post. TBH, I am looking at BTC rather like a long term growth stock (Buffett style investing, if you like) . Like a stock, I like to be aware that total loss is a possibility. My own approach is probably at odds with most other posters here, but thats why I like to give my view, for variety (it might seem like devils advocate sometimes, but that is not deliberate).

I would always advise being prepared for a move in either direction, whatever you are trading. I eventually made my whole business from trading (various instruments) over many decades, and it is not an easy option. My best advice for a would be trader is , don't do it at all, unless you are psychologically prepared for regular losses.

I am not dismissive of others' views whatsoever. In this case people were constantly misrepresenting my words either through stupidity, laziness, or by deliberation.

Not dismissive:

Quote
You are either intellectually dishonest (didn't properly read and understand what has been said and filled the gaps with your own story, then refuse to accept the fact that you have done so), too mentally impaired to understand what I've said, or plain evil and a manipulator.

Quote
You idiots are making up points of your own and pretending that they were mine.

Quote
There will be no repercussions for me, because I understand very well that the overwhelming majority is evil, delusional, ego-tripping, or just plain retarded.

Quote
If you however, act in real life as you do on here, you'll be the one eating shit when it proverbially hits the fan.

I'm telling them to shut the fuck up and seek out incremental improvements in their own life-style.

Ok, even if I allow you are not making a political argument, as you assert - how is your argument well-made?

You seem to argue that if someone is suffering from ANY injustice they should have no recourse; they should just ‘shut the fuck up’?

If in their state (for example) their politicians are corrupt, they are stolen from or repressed and they have no recourse to the rule of law as the police are corrupt too - then they should never complain, but just ‘seek incremental improvements’ rather than bother anyone who else who might perhaps be happily in an arguably more free and more privileged position, such as the one in which you and I are?

I am not seeking to attack you, but the flaws in your arguments and the way you seek to win them.  You have seemed reasonable and I thought posted well until this point.  Now you are coming across in a way that seems ill-considered, angry, elitist, dismissive and self-righteous.

Shouting louder does not make you right. Also, dismissing all ‘complaints’ wholesale without exception is by definition blind prejudice, which is unreasonable.

Someone wanting to advocate for others in a way you do not agree with is not automatically 'retarded' or 'evil, nor do they have to ‘eat shit’ or be an object of your overbearing disdain.  This is plainly over the top.

We are all at least loosely aligned here in the respect we are fans of Bitcoin (with one out two exceptions I can think of).  I know my own views are not wholly shared, but I rarely challenge the opinions of others I disagree with unless they step over the line into angry vitriol to make a point which may well be a valid opinion, but is not a fact.

Lastly:
Quote
But by that line of reasoning you're all Hitler and Jews.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law

'…there is a tradition in many newsgroups and other Internet discussion forums that, when a Hitler comparison is made, the thread is finished and whoever made the comparison loses whatever debate is in progress.'

Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to take your advice and seek out incremental improvements to my lifestyle, which is something I would happily advocate to others - just not in the way you do.

Have a nice day.
