Then I was like...'oh shit, I'm buying $200 a day on Coinbase, now I'm getting less BTC...wish it was back under $4k again'.

I wish I wasn't limited to $200 a day at these low prices.

Can someone please tell Elwar (maybe I'm on ignore) that it's his AMEX fault for the $200 limit on Coinbase.
I posted it one month ago & send him a pm also.

This UK Rehab Center Wants to Cure Your Bitcoin Addiction

"According to a Motherboard documentary, the program has been running for about a year. The patient most focused on in the video said that his addiction to Bitcoin news and trading led to other dependencies, including drugs and alcohol. (we're all fucked... if that's not already the case)

Motherboard focuses on a patient called Mark. Mark says he’s been a gambling addict since he was about 13. He would bet on pool games at the pub with his father. “It didn’t matter if I won or lost,” he says. The “rush” of taking the risk was his addiction. He says he came into contact with Bitcoin when he ordered drugs from the dark web."

Sounds like Stanford doesn't know what a cryptocurrency is, and Ripple have jumped on the opportunity to infiltrate them.

Athey, who Brown told Bitcoin Magazine is also slated to teach an entire course at Stanford next semester called “Cryptocurrencies,” claimed that not only is Bitcoin "controlled by a small group of miners in China," but that it also “wastes electricity by stealing from rivers to solve useless math problems.” Athey also mentioned that bitcoin is "secured economically and not cryptographically."
... it was pointed out that Athey was welcomed to the Ripple Labs Board of Directors back in April 2014, where she still maintains an active role.

 Yeah...well that's just like her opinion man.

Hey all, sorry for posting and disappearing. I've been so busy since getting the seastead up that I hardly have any time to get on bitcointalk anymore.

Been answering many queries from a lot of different sources (Facebook, seasteadtalk.org, ocean.builders, etc.) as well as preparing the next 20 seasteads.

Most of your questions are answered here: https://ocean.builders/faq (yes, even the pirate question)

It has been myself and my gf Nadia living on the seastead for the past month though we are currently taking a break in Phuket to buy a boat and have the bottom painted. Life on the seastead is great and always full of adventure. If you've ever lived on a boat you may know how things go. The prototype we are on was at about the 90% completion stage so that last 10% is me working on things. The water maker was a challenge since they are meant to be gravity fed which tends to mean they are usually installed under water. But ours is about 2 meters above the water. Buying a pump and then finding out you have the wrong sized hose and such minor problems turn into a longer process when the store is a boat ride back into town. Without our own boat we have to rely on my friend to come out periodically.

We did experience some big winds one night up to 25 knots which rocked the platform a bit. Our engineer noted that the seastead is not "rigid" enough. Meaning that a small movement on the bottom turns into big movement at the top. We are in the process of adding some steel frames where before we had steel cables (which can give a small amount of flexibility). Last time we were working on that our welder lost his mask to the ocean and we didn't have a spare. With our own boat we can make more regular trips but relying on our friend makes things take a bit longer.

But it is, afterall, just a prototype which has taught us quite a bit. Our production version will be quite amazing while still keeping the costs low. It will be twice as deep, have rounded walls for the wind factor, smaller area at the water line for the waves and the spar underwater will have rooms (with windows if you want).

There is a lot of interest, a lot of people want time shares so we're working to accommodate that option. We are setting up a seasteading adventure to show people the seastead while teaching them the ropes of being a seasteader (literally...ropes).

As for the title of this thread...it's a bit on the joking side since there are only 2 of us living there so accepting bitcoin for anything is a bit unnecessary since we're not selling anything. But we'll accept them if you want to give it to us  Grin

But the company selling seasteads, Ocean Builders, will be accepting bitcoins for orders. We are a bunch of early adopters that are finally able to afford building some pretty cool stuff. We fully support Bitcoin. We hope to begin producing the next set of seasteads in the next few months (at least get the ball running as far as giving contractors the green light to start setting up their production). Next week we get the final cost estimate from our last contractor then we set up our company and start taking deposits (20% down).

Adding to the activity, we are releasing the first video in a series of videos about getting the seastead up.

Welcome back Elwar.  Great to hear everything is going well.

IMHO its too early to break out of the high $3k  - $4k range.  Am inclined to think we will be around this range until mid year.

IMHO its too early to break out of the high $3k  - $4k range.  Am inclined to think we will be around this range until mid year.  

What about:

Late March - early April up to weekly MA20 ($4.1k)
Late April - early May down to weekly MA200 ($3.5k)
Late June - early July up to weekly MA50 ($5-$5.5k)
Early to mid August down to weekly MA200 ($4k)
Early to mid October breakout above all 3 MAs ($4.5k)
Late October - early Nov short term peak ($6k-$9k) before normalizing above $6K and growing further.

Plausible.
Interestingly, there is one pertinent tradeview post (not mine) that suggests to buy, buy, buy once we clear the MA50 [edit: weekly MA50 that is] (somewhere between 5 and 5.5K).

Fuck em.  I’m done with those cunts.  They stand for everything Bitcoin is against. 

Quote
The battle cry #DeleteCoinbase is resounding across crypto Twitter as bitcoin users close their accounts to protest a controversial acquisition by the exchange.

These users are upset with Coinbase for acquiring Neutrino because that blockchain analytics outfit’s executive suite – CEO Giancarlo Russo, CTO Alberto Ornaghi, and CRO Marco Valleri – previously spearheaded projects for the startup Hacking Team, which sold spyware to several governments known for human rights abuses.

For example, the Washington Post reported Hacking Team worked directly with the Saudi Arabian government, including the enforcement group that allegedly murdered dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The startup’s website touted a “hacking suite for governmental interception,” describing its wares as “offensive technology.” This spyware also aided surveillance and arrests of journalists in Ethiopia and the United Arab Emirates, Motherboard reported.

 Dammit!  I just signed up for Coinbase after my Quadrigacx boondoggle... I haven't given any personally identifying info yet.  I'll cancel my account asap.
 It might be better for my fragile ego if I just resign myself to the status of ever-hodler.  That's it.  I'm never selling!  They'll have to pry my bitcoin from my cold dead wallet... or dead cold wallet?  Whatever!  Doesn't matter because I'll be dead.
