Bit worried about the Mayor and Quadrigacx

Oh yeah... hadn't thought about that possible connection.

By the way, it is funny that we have not had many members of this thread asserting that they lost money in Quadrigacx.

 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.

I did not mean to goad you into a response by using the word "funny."  The longer that we are in bitcoin, the more likely we are going to have some incident with an exchange or hacking or something like that, so I thought that it was a bit "strange" (aka "funny") that no one had really gone into any detail in this thread about some of their personal value being involved in QuadrigaCX - especially since 1) it was a BIG exchange with a lot of value and 2) if you are personally impacted, this seems like a decently logical place to vent about the topic.

By the way, I have lost money on exchanges, and I have frequently posted here and in other threads about some of my trials and tribulations regarding such experiences.  I have not posted as much about my early 2017 sims jacking experience partly because I continued to get attacked for a period of time after such initial hacking situation. 

Also, it can be embarrassing to lose funds on exchanges, and I certainly have brought down the amount of BTC and other value that I keep on exchanges, but still, it can remain a real BIG loss to have only one portion of coins/value compromised on one exchange, even if it is only a fraction of total HODLings.

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.

You are not "normal".  hahahahaha

But seriously, you have a decently long list of screwed, and yours might be a bit longer than mine, even though I do have a few personal interaction transactions that I could add to my list of "screwed" and dealing with dishonest persons.  I have a few "honest" person experiences too in which the person had the opportunity to screw me, but did the right thing and did not.  I am sure that members who dabble more in ICOs and alts are going to have a longer list.

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).

I do like percentages.  Thanks for that.   Wink Wink   The ~300%  sounds like a lot, but the ~7% does not seem too bad.

My most recent large loss that I am kind of concluding to be my fault is my WEX account.  I had given them too much benefit of the doubt, though if I lose all of the value there, then that would be less than 1% of my total BTC investment portfolio.. but still feels like a lot...   those fucks.

 Maybe goaded was a poor choice; perhaps I should have used incited or roused Wink  
Thanks for sharing your experiences as well.  While the ~7% doesn't seem too bad it gives me some perspective.  Cigarettes were over $40 per carton when I quit and they're over $100 per carton now (a carton is 200 cigarettes or about a week's worth for a pack-a-day smoker).  I have made worse choices than using QuadrigaCX in my life.

jeez not the most of luck you had have ......

some good on the post = cigarettes when<------

quitting that is a huge succes

 I also have a lot of good luck.  Just last week at lunch on my night shift, I was way behind in a cribbage game; I needed 26 points to go out and I counted first.  Usually that's game over but I held a pair of 4's, a pair of 6's and cut a 5!  Pegged a few points and game over.  I took my one dollar winnings to the social club subsidized pop machine and out popped two coke zeros for the price of one!  On the way back to the table to share my bounty I found a dime on the floor.  Life is good.

Perspective remains somewhere in the territory of half of the battle to enjoy life.

I recall having nightmares about being economically forced to move back in with my parents in my 40s and later.

However, funny thing is that I have been engaging in some joint investment/building projects with my parents that can feel like bringing about a physical proximity scenario that is similar to th one that I had most dreaded.

So, in my mind, I have had to figure out ways in which I can frame my scenario in a light that is better, psychologically, for me to deal with.  Actually, when dealing with other humans, including parents, sometimes they might say things that kind of fuck up your own view of the world by reframing the situation, and maybe even they know you too well..  - ... But anyhow, I have figured out some mental ways to keep this matter acceptable.. even while having to reframe the situation from time to time...  I am afraid to provide too many more details about my specific methods that could cause more doxing than I would prefer, at this time.    Wink

I massively regret quitting smoking.

It's been 18 months now. There have been absolutely no health benefits, none. No difference in taste or smell, my breathing is exactly the same. What is different is that it has completely fucked my brain. I have a fraction of the concentration I used to have and even when I do concentrate I make mistakes in a way I never used to. I would start again but I doubt it's going to repair my mind so I have to pay small Filipinos to come in and brush my teeth these days.

I quit smoking more than 15 years ago.. and the cravings do mostly go away, even though they can come back from time to time.

My yellow teeth, these days, seem to come from too frequent coffee consumption, and I was reminded several times about my yellow teeth by my niece.. which does cause some self-consciousness, but not enough to cause me to reduce or discontinue my frequent coffee intake...  ... part of the matter is likely age too.. because it is likely a bit more difficult to keep teeth white the older that we get...

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.

In the future, both the government and coinbase are going to speak in broken (and retarded sounding) English.  Go figure.

Honestly you probably are, anyone who contributes anything to improve the Lives if the many are. There are 7 and a bunch billion people.if Crypto does take off and help change things in the future and become mainstream our post will likely be studied. And that's not even a joke. Our debates on Maximalism, centralization, federal banks, cold storage, exchanges. It's all important shit.

I do not agree, people create companies and factories taking the risk of losing their money, they give people the opportunity to work. The rich offer their money and the workers offer their efforts.

 I apologize in advance.

 I'm a little bit sauced up - again - as Rick toils away at work, but I "at-a-glance" read this as "a 1000 year reigning Negro", and I thought to myself, "You know, self, I am OK with this. Where do I apply ?"

 By the way, Texas goes stupid on Sundays, and doesn't allow the sale of alcohol products before noon, so I'm stuck right now saying "You know what, Bob ? You're OK on the booze right now. You should probably stop right after this drink. Thank FSM Rick keeps multiple bottles of Vodka in the freezer."

 I've been drinking for a few hours, now.

 A pattern is developing.

 Fuck.

EDIT: $3,600 BTC/USD is being a right soy-bitch right now.

It'd also probably be quite cumbersome to shit billions and billions and billions of human bodies for replacements.

I think I may have stumbled on a ready source of headless bodies...see above.

Poor people as bodies for the rich?  That is part of the sci-fi scary part, right?

Yea..I am pretty sure this will be a thing..for better or worse.  Have you watched altered carbon yet jjg?  Highly recommend that you do if you havent yet. I definitely would want a model with military combat enhancements.

I don't watch too many movies, but I will put it on my "movies to watch" list.. .. just in case, I am searching for something to watch...
