When we refer to ATH or other price dynamics, we refer to Bitstamp, here, unless we are trying to point out something specific about some other exchange.

So, in that regard, our ATH for 2019 has so far only gotten to $5,846. 

We cannot be referring to other exchanges with other ATH BTC prices, merely because it makes us feel better because there is a higher number or a lower number or anything like that.  We gotta stick to our guns during good times or bad times or whatever, and use Bitstamp as our reference price, unless there is some kind of convincing longer term development that shows us that Bitstamp is either no longer reliable as an price indicator, or some better price indicator proves itself to be better (likely with passage of time, rather than short term claims of serving as a more reliable indicator).

How about bitcoinaverage? Or preev? (which uses the average of bitstamp and kraken by default) ... Or one of the index made by other sites, like gemini or coindesk ...

There is no smoking gun..no glaring flaw that screams buy or sell. Bitcoin is doing what it what likes as usual. That trend lately has been upwards and sideways. It might continue doing just that. 

If I was to hazard a guess I would say sideways consolidation with increasing volatility over the next few days as Bulls muster forces for an assault on $6k+   

Bears are still circling looking for weaknesses and a chance at sub $5.4k prices again so its advised that you keep your head on a swivel.  #dyor

Perhaps, some day in the future, in this thread, we will move over to one of those... but currently, bitstamp seems to have served as a decent indicator regarding where bitcoin is at...

LOL, in 2019, I'm talking about the highest price of the year, so far and I hope to see it higher in December. Cool

You make some decent arguments here and there when you're not going on and on about Jews or PMs, so it really puzzles me how you fail to understand that metals are going the way of the dodo a generation or two down the road. Except that dodos will be brought back at some point.
I think his persona is actually a piece of work. My wildest and most likely guess is he's a mid-upper class urban jew.

1 He's familiar with relatively obscure details of (((their))) lifestyle/culture and successfully uses his knowledge as a counterfeit "I know my enemy".

2 His level of understanding in certain technical fields is higher than usually shows. What he writes up is not always google soup.

3 He feigns obtuse insensitivity by the use of repetitive patterns, successfully evoking schizoid psychosis.

1 suggests "Jew". 2 suggests middle/upper class education. 3. suggests sophisticated character management, at least at the cliché level.

I wager he often laughs when reading or posting.

And in the short-term Bitcoin clearly has the superior expected value even without riding the waves up and down.

Also, you keep running the same talking points. Bitcoin is not a permissioned ledger. You are free to process and broadcast your own transactions or employ any number of the payment processors/accelerators.

He knows it and does have some coin for sure. Probably not as much as he'd like: always hungry for more, you know the type. Don't forget (((who))) he actually is.

Undeniably effective. He's one of the first participants I noticed and focused on when I came here as a newbie around 2013.

Roach, as in Mr. Samsa, hm? I guess he was a jew, too, as was Franz K.

A change of pace is needed for me perhaps..I can feel it coming. Plan on doing a couple of sections of the PCT again this year. With weather improving maybe I will get a early start.

In the mean time lets switch things around somewhat. Instead of me doing all the finger wiggling, how about some of you take a stab at annotating this monthly chart.

You tell me what you see while I crack open a beer.

UnknownHolder has it right. ATH = All Time High, as in forever.    The "high price this year"? That should be a different acronym, but not an ATH.

Your jaded because you were the first of the council to die in the great war. Undecided
What a way to die with a knife in the back saving samwell the coward.

No way Sam is a coward. He's a goofy ball of lard and not the most willing to engage, sure, but to each his own. He pulled off a few noteworthy stunts within and without the Watch. Don't touch my boy.

Disclosure about my recent trading.

Bart up ~500$ paid my long very well, but I started shorting a bit too early, and profits more than vanished. Had to scalp my way up. The latest down movement (smaller) put me back on track, so overall I'm back into green.

Now I can either

(a) cash out pennies
(b) put a stop loss on the short (losing pennies on the up)
(c) open a long, ready to let it go at a loss provided the short improves.

I'm taking (c). If we go UP, my net position stays as it is. If we go DOWN, I'll let the long go at a loss a bit at a time, and pay a little penalty indeed, but as we go back to the low 5k's, I'm even better off than now.

I tried to set myself up in such a situation, and I more or less managed. This feels good, and it's not just about the extra corn I make. Of course some luck was involved, but less of it than I used to think as a newbie trader.

My fiat can be used to buy a little moar on this nice dip. It all adds up.

I do also recall doing something with a pencil on an Athlon but can't quite remember the details.

Pencilling an Athlon, never heard of it. We pencilled our miners. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=517767.0

Yes, it did happen, I remember it was mentioned in the forums at that time.

Although I never did it myself, I do remember it. When I first heard about it, I was a bit surprised about how a thin layer of pencil material could do the trick...
I did it with some USB miner, worked a treat for stacking more sats.

You are all pussies.

Back in 2011 I used a pencil to calculate hashes on notebook paper.

Pencil trick.

Pfff.

Question for anyone who wants to take a crack at it.

At what point should we assume that most everyone who wants out of Bitfinex has gotten out?


At the point BTC there is astronomically expensive.

See how Bitcoin is antifragile?
