BlockFi looks to boost market with launch of high-interest accounts​.

New York lending firm BlockFi announced Tuesday it is launching a crypto savings account with 6 percent annual interest, payable monthly in bitcoin or ether.

https://www.theblockcrypto.com/2019/03/05/crypto-cash-back-blockfi-looks-to-boost-market-with-launch-of-high-interest-accounts%E2%80%8B/

Well that's audacious.

How the hell can something like that be sustainable?
They can do what they like with their own coin, can't they? Including closing shop when things get clumsy.
Your coin, you say? Not yours anymore since you gave up your keys.

Well now that's more like it, but still smells like hope. Strive harder, my friends.

Hahahahahaha

Not only are you acting out as a debbie downer, d_eddie, you seem to be asserting that capitulation remains a condition precedent for the BTC price to return UP.

I am not claiming that you are wrong.  I am just pointing out what seems to be a purposeful contrarian tone. 



Exactamente!

Right, but I am afraid that services like this would proliferate soon.
People hope against reason to consume without selling their btc.
I expect bakkt to do something similar.

Yes, indeed. However, I hope bakkt would have more to lose if they pull a runner - more collateral, more intangibles.

Oh wow, I get uncomfortable accepting congrats to be honest. I get a bit embarrassed. Thanks to everybody who put me in their custom trust list. I guess this means you’re now DT2? I have you in my trust list mate.

I will go to my grave without a fucking clue about how this trust shite works or makes the world a better place. I would not be capable of comprehending it even if you stuck in me in Cerebro with a Ritalin dildo up me.

It seems to me that it is a bit of a whole different world of forum activities.  Trading with other members, or participating in signature campaigns (especially managers) and offering ICOs etc. Offering or buying goods and services (items of value, besides pure information), seems to be the most applicable use of trust - and therefore positive and negative feedback will come from those kinds of interactions.

For many of us, we participate in the forum in order to merely provide, share and brainstorm concerning our BTC or other crypto-related ideas, so it seems in those circumstances, DT is NOT going to be as relevant, and perhaps merit is important, or merely just the soundness of the shared ideas themselves. 

If we are merely in the sharing of BTC/crypto information business, then we are NOT really prejudiced in regards to DT even if we rarely participate in it -- yet every once in a while, if we were to be posting deceptive nonsense on a regular basis, then we increase our likelihood to get red tagged by someone who has gained trust in the current DT system.

Since theymos made the couple of months ago changes to the DT system, I thought that I should study into it a bit more (especially since I am a pretty active member for just passing 5 years now), and at least, I did the minimum, of creating my own custom trust list - even though I am still considering whether I may need to tweak such trust list a bit based on some of the ongoing discussion of the changes in the significance of such custom trust list including voting power considerations, too.

[...] buying goods [...]

yup only use ive had for it is when ive bought hardware from a forum member.

even then using escrow is best, unless of course youre buying goods from a respected escrow person to begin with.

Yeah, but I have never eaten bear before, so maybe that is part of the reason that I am having difficulties appreciating the current situation.  

I wonder:  In order to attempt to understand moar better, do I need to go shopping for bear meat?

People on reddit marinate it in beer before roasting, for a better taste and softer meat I suppose.

Hahahahaha

I would not exactly categorize "root beer" as the kind of beer that I was thinking about when you had mentioned "beer market." That is like a PG-13 kind of "beer".   Tongue

In all predictions and TA popping out in all twitter feed.

Noobs like me get confused easily. I don't have much knowledge about TA.

No one can be so sure when the bull run comes.

Having said that all we can do is get ready no matter if it comes this year, or 2020 or even 2021.

Keep filling your little bags according to your pockets and enjoy life with your family.

And Keep sharing funny memes here. Grin

My advice - don't trust anyone. Read, listen, analyze but remain skeptical a bit. And the main thing: HODL!  Cool

Thanks, yup that's what I try to implement.

Plus

HODL + unload stash on right time Cheesy

Define "right time"?  You know it when you see it?  Is that what you mean?   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I am not much experienced as you guys are in this matter or any investment per se, As a matter of fact, Investing in crypto is my first ever investment and I witnessed only one bull run.

But can share my experience and its just my opinion. right or wrong its another debate.

"When someone portfolio gets bigger overnight by luck and it outnumbers his-her 5years earning." unleash the Kraken Cheesy

Personally, I think that you need a better plan than that, and perhaps your plan might work out, yet sometimes people will regret selling way too much BTC way too early.  What I mean is that you should attempt to project ahead a bit of scenarios in which you are selling, and better that you do not sell 100%, but instead maybe 10% at each level or maybe some other percentage that is comfortable for you.  Even selling 33% at various levels could be reasonable, too because it at least leaves you with some BTC in case the price keeps going UP way beyond your earlier expectations.

Thanks, Agreed and I too think that a strategy should change according to time or situation.

Like I mentioned a couple of time here that I was very new and it was panic sell from my side.

But now when I look back. It turns out a good call. Because of panic or some luck, I sold my 80% portfolio at ATH.

I am still learning, slowly but I am much informed and prepared now in comparison of last year.

I was surprised seeing that, cried a bit but when I checked it was just an error from the site.
The daily overall volume was also crazy, it's $50 billion.

Don't know when it will be fix.
