I expect a denial of service of bitcointalk.org soon. 

When the site bogs down, it is merely Eternal September. A mere sign that retail FOMO has started.

By the logic of some of the idiotic maximalist comments in this thread, once gold nuggets were dug out of the ground there was no further need for diversification - not minted coins, not account based trading, not paper notes and not lightweight metals. Popular music need not have bothered itself further after the Beatles. The sovereign bond didn't need to be hedged by equities, commodities nor currencies, Fine Art investments were all "scams" after Da Vinci.

Don't you nuttheads get markets or what ? The whole point of them is that they're not tyrannies. There is diversity to address everything from taste to hedging requirements to technical deficiencies and vertical sectors.

Without diversification in the crypto-asset market bitcoin would still be in 3 digits.

jeez. imagine there were no airplanes invented yet. satoshi invents a full functioning modern airplane. it works. provably. and now there are 2 or 3000 others that build "airplanes" that are much cheaper (no wings), much lighter (no engines) or are made out of bamboo. you are saying that people should use those fake airplanes. that is not diversification. just pure scamming of people.    alts offer no use case. they don´t fly. the idiotic comments are yours. amazing.

I think he is saying that helicopters can also fly and are not necessarily always 100% sh1t + they have also brought new things to the table like flying just 1 - 3 people a short distance to a city 200miles away that has no airport with a runway...

There are shitcoins that are trying to do what Bitcoin does, which fit your description.

And then there are some genuinely unique solutions. Not going to shill in the WO thread, but you're missing the bigger picture.


You are essentially suggesting that Amazon & co are worthless shit companies because they are just another shitty money grabbing website during the dot com bubble. The internet would be better off without more websites.

Heck, it's not even just that either. You are also simultaneously suggesting that stocks are useless because the USD would be much better off without them.

If you fail to see the potential value of tokens then you clearly don't know much about traditional markets. Or you got burnt so hard that you're demonizing the entire space now. Or you've literally only seen Beeeeconnneeeeeeeeeeeect etc. Not sure what causes your extremist views but they are not inline with reality.


And your last assertion is strictly false as well. Every single casino is modeled in a way that increases the probability of depleting your money the more games you play. Even with the outright scammy shitcoins you can however outplay the market if you are willing to invest the time and have the skill, something that you won't be able to in a casino by design.


i dont understand why folks cheer those shitcoins. shitcoins are fundamentally different to bitcoin. it is not like comparing different stocks of competing companies. bitcoin is a tech breakthrough. no alt is a tech breakthrough. bitcoin is used by millions of people for almost a decade now. shitcoins are not used for anything. what alt are you actually using (other than gambling)? i am not being extremist here, just very conservative.

bitcoin solves the byzantine generals problem. what problem in computer science is any alt solving? bitcoin has no owner, leader  -  it is decentralised. shitcoins are not decentralized. shitcoins are created by individuals or companies that want to make profit. how to make profit when there is neither a use case nor users? well, the only way to profit is to scam people and try to sell you their u s e l e s s  token. and that is what they do: they run around and tell everyone about their new coin that you should buy.

and my last assertion is not false at all. when i go to a casino i at least know to what degree i get scammed. when buying shitcoins it is not false to assume that the scam level is way higher. in a casino i pay fees and i get entertained and maybe lose or win. when buying useless altcoins the scam level is 100% just to begin with.

bitcoin is a protocol. a standard. there is no need for several thousand protocols. how many "internets" do we have?
Again, you seem to be under the impression that out of the thousands of shitcoins every single one is trying to copy Bitcoin and you couldn't be further from the truth.
I have been and will keep saying that most shitcoins (that are around today) will go to zero because they're run by con artists, shitheads, retards, good people with good ideas but lack of experience to see them through and so on.

But there certainly are unique solutions that can and will solve equity in a better way than the stock market does. Which again, you denominate in USD (BTC) while you own stock (shitcoin).
They're also infinitely superior to traditional means of fundraising (thus allowing more people to start businesses as the market matures) and they're better at aligning the interests of the investor with those of the entrepreneur by unlocking "developer tokens" based on success/time. If you locked up Bitcoin they would get free money, if they only have their own shitcoin unlocked then they have to make sure it will work to be profitable.

And who decided that altcoins have to "solve a computer science problem"? You couldn't be any more arbitrary with that point. Just because the sun provides us with life doesn't mean we don't need lamps "because they don't create life", they still glow you know? And in places where the sun doesn't shine.

Yes it is 100% false. In a casino the more games you play the higher the probability becomes that you lose, period. You can absolutely not compare a market where you can freely choose how you interact with it to a casino. The expected value of a casino is STRICTLY NEGATIVE for the player. The expected value for a trader depends on the trader. And again, false assumption that all alts are the same. Do you think all people are the same too?

so you really don´t know it yet? you been in this forum since sub $100 prices. you did not understand it back then, that is why you are no early investor. nothing to be ashamed of. but after 6 years and 6000 posts...    i see...

how about:
permissionless, trustless, uncensorable, borderless secure and safe transfer of value.
unconfiscateable, immutable, truly decentralized and safe store of value.
