The International Monetary Fund is considering negative interest rates as a long term solution.

This includes ideas on getting people to stop saving and storing cash, effectively eliminating it.

Buy bitcoin, bye banks. 🔥

 Somehow I feel goaded into a reply:

 There's nothing funny about it and we won't be certain how much money we have lost (assertions will be difficult) until the legal process is complete and from my perspective it is mildly embarrassing - I can only imagine how others feel.  There is a modicum of hope that some money will be recovered though with all the lawyers and bean-counters involved, any amounts of cash and/or coin recovered is dwindling as they take their pound of flesh for services rendered.  I stand to lose some (or all) of the CAD I have on the QuadrigaCX exchange but thanks to jbreher for reminding me about the proof of keys, I transferred the Bitcoin held on QuadrigaCX back to my local wallets on Dec. 31st.

 It's disheartening but nothing new in Bitcoin.  I've been screwed by Butterfly Labs on ASIC purchases, screwed by KNC miner who had my money for nearly a year without delivering my mining device or refunding my money(Bitcoin), I've been screwed out of funds when BTC-TC got shaken down by the SEC, screwed out of funds by creativex when he disappeared with investor funds from our mining operation bASIC Mining, screwed by ASICMiner (friedcat) when they went tits up and he disappeared after moving the shares from BTC-TC to Havelock Investments, slightly screwed over by AMHash (which may or may not have been mining at all), nearly screwed by Cryptsy though I never kept much on there as it was only used for exchanging my mined altcoin for Bitcoin, I had set up an account on GOX but never put money or coins in it fortunately, I've even been screwed on a coffee purchase using Bitcoin here on the forum.  Fuck.  Any normal person probably would have quit Bitcoin by now but I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.

 I know you like percentages JJG so I'll give you two.  My CAD on deposit with QuadrigaCX (which I stand to lose) is ~300% of my total investment in Bitcoin or ~7% of the money I spent on cigarettes when I was young(er) and foolish(er).
 


Sorry about that and about my post which was really stupid(I'll edit it).
I honestly didn't think anybody here had lost any money in Quadriga.
For me it was just a small exchange, I hadn't even heard of it before this whole thing. Plus not many here in this thread seemed to care much about it.
Again, sorry.

Actually age is degradation in the cells.

When you are younger they regenerate fine.

The challenge is to halt or reverse this degradation.

I believe there are current successful studies, stimulating the repair function back into order.




That's the whole "senescent cells" approach. Basically tries to kill senescent cells (cells that stop dividing) which accumulate with age. Human trials are starting this year by the way.

I know a bit about this approach, called senolytics. One problem is that aging is not considered a disease, so companies have to pursue some aging effects indirectly.
However, senolytics do not significantly increase the lifespan (so far), but they do affect the 'healthspan'. In animal trials, older mice became more healthy, but the average life duration was not affected. There were similar preliminary results (first part) in a first pre-clinical human trial.

A typical senolytic cocktail includes desatinib and quercetin.
Medical grade desatinib is expensive and is an anti-cancer drug needing prescription, so, personally, I decided not to bother with sourcing it for a simple reason that we would probably have something better (less toxic) in 5-10 years.
Quercetin, on the other hand, is readily available, is a naturally occurring molecule (present in apple's peels and in blueberries), so i did try it for a month, which is what one clinical trial did.
No discernible effects one way or another, apart from feeling slightly better (a bit more "robust"), but, of course, I did not do a proper study, so it could be purely psychological.
I would probably pause for a month and do it again. Three weeks on D+Q was the duration of the first human trial, so i also used a similar time frame (without D).

@micgoossens

I never smoked anything in my life despite Weed growing in our backyard and my friends smoking only because it suits certain lifestyle according to them (it's your choice)

I do consider my body as a Temple. But, I am guilty of developing a taste for RUM for the last one year. Already had enough with this too and I am confident will quite. I am 30yo


@BTCMILLIONAIRE

Yes, some drugs-medication are useful in some cases, what I meant was cocaine etc

Coinbase Wallet Users Can Now Back Up Their Private Keys on Google Drive and iCloud. How Safe Is It?

“At least it's not unencrypted private keys like what blockchain.info did some time ago by sending private keys as plain text over http. If this keeps some noobs from losing their coins and telling all their friends how stupid cryptocurrency is because they lost it all, I don't see a problem.”

Quote
“Players like Coinbase should not be encouraging this type of unsafe behavior. I understand the desire for a better user experience, but the worst user experience is one where people lose all their crypto assets due to theft.”

Wikileaks leaked  2022 Gov and coinbase COE discussion after BTC hit 45k$ in november 2021.

GOV: We need to know all your users holding balance.
Coinbase : We can not give you this informations directly,
GOV: Kraken gave us access to all their servers and databases. You, refuse to share some informations.
Coinbase: You can get them on google drive or icloud.
GOV : Sorry, we were not aware of that.
Coinbase : we have prepared it years ago.
GOV: You are very intelligent despite it's too risky.
Coinbase : We don't care about cryptocurrencies and users' fund.
GOV : We will accuse russian hackers if something wrong will happen.

 Don't change anything!  There's nothing wrong with speaking your mind and if you're worried about me, I am not offended in the least.  Not many Canadians in this thread (or in the world for that matter) so I'm not surprised it wasn't talked about much.  Also, you don't have to be sorry for me.  I still have the most Bitcoin I have ever had - I was using my cash on QuadrigaCX to buy the dips.

Again I was looking at random btc addresses.

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/1Cp18yeabUg14CNp2HGwKisDoixiGgzmeT

Poor bastard probably dumped last of his bitcoins (18k) when he saw $0.32. Made himself a juicy $35k by selling 26750 coins. (96 Millions fucking DOllars today)

You can probably buy yourself a live forever upgrade with that amount nowadays.

Where are they selling "live forever upgrades" these days? Cause I see the world's wealthiest still turn into fossils and die. You'd think they'd buy it if available ...

Aging is a bitch, and I don't know how you get around it.

I have some pretty adventurous things planned in the near future, which will likely involve using some of my bitcoins.  Part of the reason is that I am considering using some of my bitcoins sooner than later is because I am having troubles concluding that I am going to live as long as I had previously thought.    Let's see how things play out, but there are real meat wagon limitations that should not be ignored.

.....the only plausible shot for life extension right now is crypto-preservation, which isn't capable of re-animating humans yet. But that's not necessarily relevant as the probability of reanimating via that route is larger than zero.
So with time, more people will be going that route even if reanimation hasn't been demonstrated yet. And once it's demonstrated in a mammal use will begin growing rapidly.

Lot's of third party risk, there.

Wasn't there an issue recently in which a lot of frozen embryos were "accidentally" thawed out due to electrical outage issues?  

"Woops, we were going to revive (reanimate) him/her in 2140 (year of the mining of the last bitcoin), but s/he accidentally thawed out in 2054 because we forgot to hook up the back up generator, so cells are no longer viable. blah blah blah."

Near break of the day
behold larger bitcoin runs
at the perfect bear

------
We can see a shift in market direction as the bear channel has been clearly violated on multiple time scales as we move to close out the week in trading. Despite this the bears are still pressing for advantage as the price has retraced its path backwards to previous levels.

1h


On the daily chart we can see the strong rejection as the chikou span encounters the resistance of the tenkan sen. Unless this level is breached we will most likely see a sideways and downward trend develop until the beginnings of March. #dyor

Sadly the problem with the transplant business is that it doesn’t help your brain when it turns to mush. And turn to mush it does.

And the sort of anaesthetics required for transplant business are strongly mush inducing.

Better we focus on doing the best we can with what we have imho.

Weird how unevenly luck is distributed in this scammy cryptoverse. I had invested in an AvalonIII group purchase done by a bitcointalk scammer with the name Candoo but was able to get the coins back from him(2013). Had invested in a Avalon-chip group buy that never got delivered, btc were refunded(2013). Had 70 btc on bitcoin24 when it got busted and closed by polish/german authorities. the kid that owned bitcoin24 refunded almost all bitcoin back to their owners(2013). Butterfly labs screwed me with sending out the miner i ordered with a delay of 20 months(2014). (that was a real loss). I had just sent a few thousand bucks to the french exchange paymium when it got hacked and closed for some weeks, money was refunded(2013). Had coins on bitstamp when it got hacked, coins refunded(2015). KNC purchase of their first miner worked well, second round was a big mess (no miners delivered) but thanks to sam cole all coins were refunded. BFlabs was the only real loss (about $2k) Another real loss was investing in Klee´s altcoin enterprise in 2016. That was when it finally dawned on me that the thing to do with btc is hodl in cold storage and NEVER EVER "invest" it in anything.

i wish you the best for your coins on quadrigacx.
