Less than a decade ago, 10,000 bitcoin bought you a pizza. Today, 10 will buy you a car. Five years from now, one may buy you a house.

That was quite the fake out, yet sometimes it is a kind of test of support and wipes off some buy orders to resume the downward attack at a later time.  I am not resting assured yet regarding who's getting reckt moar.  Our flat, and inability to break out of a channel, remains.

* BobLawblaw mock-angrily shakes fist at Theymos

When that number hits >5 GRIN mined and finally pays out, I'm quitting this shit so hard... Hopefully by Friday.



EDIT: Switched to the latest version of bminer for Windows. Much better than that other Gold Miner shit I was using. https://www.bminer.me/releases/

Thanks for the tip, finally got bminer working on grinmint with this new version. After running it for 5 minutes it seems a whole lot faster, but already got one rejected share.

Mining this shit is really completely useless, however the temperatures have gone sub 0 and it really doesn't matter much if I warm my house with my floor heating, which runs on geothermal energy plus electricity to warm up the water sufficiently, or (partly) with my main rig.

Mined 1.75 grin in a couple of days hahahaha.

BIS chief Agustín Carstens: Bitcoin must depart from PoW.

I like how bankers starting to sweat they know Bitcoin will eat their lunch  Smiley

https://cointelegraph.com/news/major-central-bank-institution-bis-bitcoin-must-depart-from-proof-of-work

As with the other BIS news item of the day, it is 100% clear they are lying.
(snip)
Now they try to trick Bitcoin into destroying itself by giving up decentralization by replacing POW (after a long bullshit smear campaign calling Bitcoin mining wasteful and bad for the environent).

It seems like they are becoming desperate. Their campaign will likely (unfortunately) work to overturn Brexit (scaring and shaming the British public into voting remain in a second referendum) but will they succeed with Bitcoin?
(snip)
Yes, it sounds like they're getting desperate.

I don't know about Brexit. I think the public was tricked into voting without full information. See the 'All them EU rules innit' twitter thread. It might actually be better for Britain not to leave, but it's all speculation: we'll never have actual what-if data. So who knows.

As for bitcoin, I don't think they can overturn PoW whatever they say. The supporters of "the fees won't be enough to support the miners" argument always forget to consider what the price might have become in the meantime!  Wink

That whiplash has Arthur Hayes signature.



I frequently wonder about why so much hate on Arthur Hayes?

I understand that he is a central figure and spokesman for Bitmex, yet it seems that Bitmex has uniquely contributed to the liquidity of the cryptospace - bitcoin and various alts by providing a platform to short a lot of alts that would not otherwise be able to short.  I am fairly sure that his platform provides a vehicle for manipulation, and yeah, sometimes there are claims of internal exchange shenanigans.  Bitmex profits from exchange volume (and probably has profited immensely just from the kind of service that they have provided to the space), and I don't see why they would want to additionally manipulate with insider shenanigans to ruin their reputation, because they are already making a killing just from regular business.  Also, they have provided some really decent research articles in the past couple of years.

Born in Ecuador,  studied and worked in the USA.  Been back to EC since 2002.
Proud owner of BTC along with shit coins.   Did not sell on the big pump!  
Hodler at heart or fool?  Time will tell.

Regarding investing in bitcoin, what do you do?

Do you dollar cost average and try to buy more on dips?

Do you have a certain percentage of your income that you allocate to bitcoin? 

Do you plan out in advance in order to determine how much BTC you can buy, or do you get into trouble because you bought too much and then th price does not go up, as hoped?

https://cointelegraph.com/news/major-central-bank-institution-bis-bitcoin-must-depart-from-proof-of-work

I experience a churning of my stomach when I see non-sense like that.  It is a sign of desperation, like you are suggesting, and it there is a kind of "holy cow" regarding the level of misinformation that is presented by the underlying assertion.

Some folks don't realize that the "holy shit" of bitcoin is wrapped up in its proof of work, so proof of work is a feature, not a bug.  Proof of work causes bitcoin incentive, and like you suggested, paashaas, will continue to generate incentives that cause the downfall of the whole financial system, causing value to flow into bitcoin.  The audacity of the article seems to show that there are many traditional financial incumbents who will be willing to battle quite strenuously to spread their nonsense about bitcoin supposedly being flawed, when in fact they are pointing out central features.. namely POW in this case.

By the way, bitcoin is stubborn and very difficult to change, too, and that remains as a feature rather than a bug to defend against misinformation campaigns that try to get bitcoin to become paypal-like, so stop whining about how stubborn and "inefficient" bitcoin is you fucking bank shill bitcoin naysayers.   Tongue Tongue    Cheesy Cheesy

terse

your point?

I like. Smiley

tyvm. so great you went back. not a fool, wait for the really big pump after next.
is there a bitcoin scene there? how good is the internet there?

Small BTC community but I do not participate; I live in the mountains away form civilization.
Internet is very good in the main cities in Ecuador.
I have very good internet in my hidden crater via antennas that I installed.
You can visit me here: http://pululahua-ecolodge.com/
Pay with BTC or shitcoins if you like.


Looks awesome, I' will visit after the next pump. Do you accept BTC?

I loaded up the map at rompert last night - have not done so in at least a couple months - and was utterly blown away with the growth. It's easily increased at least 4x in node and channel size since I started.

My node that was situated near "the core" of the map, now appears to be forming a part of a larger outer spoke-system of a wheel.

Many nodes in the middle of the map aren't particularly "huge hubs" any more.

Very interesting watching the visualization of the network evolve as it grows.

Nothing centralized about it.

At all.

Anyone who has time to complain about wealth inequality doesn't really deserve moving upwards in the food chain, as they could've invested the same time on figuring out sensible goals for their life as well as some steps towards them.

QFT.

+1

What he said.

What if they used the time, then figured out the solutions and then realized every one of those solutions would get them killed so decided to just sit back and complain until someone else finds a better solution that doesn't get them killed?

I can't even figure out what you are getting at. Working on life will get you killed? I guess in some sense. In the long run, we're all dead.

Life is hard. Buck up, bucko - or get lapped by those willing to put in the work.

I dated a girl for a number of years.

Her father was wealthy and powerful.  He owned 25+ houses that he rented out.  He was also a drunk and highly abusive.

The mother eventually divorced him after a series of domestic violence incidents.  The father decided to make the mother's life a living hell.   He hired lawyers to sue the mother for everything under the sun, stalked the mother and tried to destroy her friendship networks.  This went on for five years.  

The mother grew deeply depressed and semi suicidal.  My girlfriend and her sister at the age of 8 had to get the mother out of bed in the morning, get her dressed so the mother could drive them to school.  Some days they couldn't get their mother out of bed so they missed school.  

My girlfriend was incredibly smart and motivated but she missed a lot of school during that five year period.  It affected her grades and she had to work hard to try to catch up.  She also had the mental load of trying to parent her own mother through the divorce and aftermath.  There is no doubt in my mind if she had had a normal, stable childhood, she would have been a surgeon or rocket scientist.  Instead she will likely never achieve her full potential.  

Let's not kid ourselves that everyone has equality of opportunity.  Because they don't.
Why not a mother? Perhaps even a better mother than her mother. Who picked a better man than she did.

Sounds to me as if you are claiming that, seeing as we all have access to different opportunities, it isn't even worth trying to improve your circumstance.

I call bullshit on that. Everyone has the same opportunity to endeavor to improve their situation.

Anyone saying that success is linked to hardwork deserves to be let alone in any third world country to see how their hardwork will be rewarded. Or in any poor family in any Western country.

Absolute twaddle.

The circumstances of one's birth are relevant, indeed. However, anyone who works hard will experience more success than one who does not. Period.

You're an intelligent guy but now you are deliberately misunderstanding. It's obvious the point was quite opposite of 'not worth trying' as the girl in this story "worked hard to catch up".

What really is BS is stating that everyone has the same opportunity to endeavour to improve their situation. In order to do that you'll need, well, opportunity. If you're totally tied up in whatever circumstances you might not have that. This idea that anyone can just 'break free' at any time from any circumstances is just plain naive frankly.
