I tell you a bit about my start in Bitcoin, I feel ridiculous, but it's like this:

I started on the Internet in its beginnings, MSDOS and then in Windows, I had my time in web pages and in the purchase of domains, but unfortunately I never heard about Bitcoin, it was in August/September of 2017 when I bought Bitcoin for the first time.

I still do not understand how it is possible to be immersed in the network since 1990 with domains, web pages, design, servers and never have news of Bitcoin.

It seems fate kept me away for some reason.

I'm late and I feel like I'm hanging in the last carriage of the train. Sad

Always Hodl with a small part for the trade.

I would have liked to be here from the beginning of the WO thread, I would probably have more BTC.

I'm watching one of my favorite movies and to be fair I'm a little drunk, that movie is midnight in Paris.

If Bitcoin gets me to the point where I am wealthy enough and I have paid off all my debts and children's debts, I want to build a dark little poorly lit bar, fill in with cigar smoke and drafts of my favorite imported beer. That's where I'll spend my little lonely Friday nights.

You can do that now! Unless your favorite draft beers are $20 a pint and you like to smoke Cuban cigars...

Wait.. has the price of Cubans come down in the last couple of years? It should have.

at the end of the day 1 came out profitable!) Total 1/6)
For me the most important thing is that I recognized my mistakes! It costs a lot


I remember reading a blog of one very prominent trader (sorry, I forgot the linky).
He said:

1. if your last 4-5 trades went bad, become very defensive.

2. if your last 4-5 trades were profitable, become very aggressive.

I lost a large chunk of my trading equity in 2001-2002 since I only knew the bull market of 1997-2001 prior to that.
Nothing worked, but I kept 'buying the dip'.
It was a good lesson.
And good value for money is my guess: eventually in the green anyway, unless you sodl or got rekt.

Are you referring to this blog by any chance?
http://theimpatienttrader.blogspot.com/2011/10/things-ive-learned-after-15-years-of.html

Someone posted a link to it just a few days ago. I think it was Last of the V8s.

Yes Last of the V8s was the first to post that blog on the WO afaik.  I still think of it as the most important blog post I have ever read.

Good article, with an excellent ending:

"Maintain a balanced life It's not just about the screens. Spend time with family, friends: they deserve more attention.

Stay humble, stay connected to the ground, remember where you came from and where you want to go. What is here today, can easily disappear tomorrow. Respect what you have already shot to achieve more."

#Bitcoin's 2018 bear market .. graphical anecdote

https://twitter.com/100trillionUSD/status/1131921718015143937

Good morning WO,s

2018 To forget.
2019 Looks better.


Speaking of Craig Wright - his recent application to the US copyright office related to btc and whitepaper, this is what the US copyright office had to say -

“As a general rule, when the Copyright Office receives an application for registration, the claimant certifies as to the truth of the statements made in the submitted materials. The Copyright Office does not investigate the truth of any statement made,” the Copyright Office wrote in a press release. “In a case in which a work is registered under a pseudonym, the Copyright Office does not investigate whether there is a provable connection between the claimant and the pseudonymous author.”

 Anyone can file for a copyright, personally I still maintain my doubts that Wright is Satoshi, it seems unlikely.

someone alphabetise those poor hats before i get epileptic seizures
kthxbye

never

the first rule of hats is that mine is on the upper left (or the train engineer seat)

it's science you see

Exactamente!!!!  Keep those hats in whatever random-ass order they already were in, even if that benefits jojo.   Wink

Almost like we are buddies, now...   Kiss   Hopefully no peeps begin to believe that I actually like you.   Tongue

It will be fun to tell your grandchildren the different anecdotes of each of the hats when we retire and we are disgustingly rich.
The hat gallery will be part of the story. Cool

imho 95% of very early buyers of btc don´t own a large btc stash anymore.

-lost/destroyed hardware
-lost private keys
-spent for pizza or other stuff
-got hacked
-some bad trades
-going full retard as "daytrader"
-sold because it finally went over $10
-lost btc on mtgox and other exchanges
-bought shitcoins
-fell for scams
-invested in butterfly labs or other vaporware
-believed the bcash lies
-believed in the ETH flippening
-etc, etc


you are still early. mass adoption not here yet. if you manage to hodl a few whole btc you are going to be allright.rich.

Bank not working, "BITCOIN" LOL>

Hopefully the future will be more fun, and bank will swallow their own words back.

Nothing can stop bitcoin and whether they like it or not, bitcoin will have a slice of the big pie.

JayJuanGee, I think I'm going to start calling you null pointer since you're virtually useless.

speak for yourself.

You can call me whatever you like.

It is not like you have a lot of credibility around here and I am one of the only ones who respond to you anyhow, you psycho.   Tongue

Then again, vegans probably aren't bothered by excess farting...goes with the territory I guess....


I don't have that problem, then again i'm not a Vegan Roll Eyes just a try and a friend of GF asked if we wanna join them.....

Still i'm not looking forward, let hope to be surprised somehow.

I have had some great vegetarian Indian dishes ... no way Indian is vegan though ... but so delicious I could learn to live without meat with great Indian takeaway nearby.

Indeed.... I learned to live whiteout meat myself and i'm really having a good time, only Vegan is a step to much....
I'm also lucky to really like all of the different kitchens.

Yeah, that’s why I am sure that if I had known bitcoin in 2009 I might be have been screwed.

I might have accumulated a lot of bitcoins via CPU mining at home, faucets, exchanging etc.
I might have lost a LOT of bitcoins due to private keys lost/hardware corruptions.
Storing private keys and transaction wasn’t as easy as today back in the days. Wallets had clumsy key and address management.
 Also I had a few HW fails in the years, I lost precious data, and back then I would surely have lost some private keys.
For sure I would have sold part of stash at dollar parity in 2013, at 10 USD or at 1000 USD... regretting all my poor made choices. I would have lost more trying to recover the original stash.
Today I would be constantly banging my head against the wall because of the lost money, even if I now would have probably 10x (ultra conservative estimate) of what I actually have today.
I couldn’t be as strong as Latszo, knowing to have spent millions usd on two pizzas.

Today, instead I consider myself lucky to have my slowly always increasing stash.

I remember one time at a trendy place in Los Angeles I had a raw falafel burger... It took the guy like 15 minutes to make it by hand. He was all sweaty by the end of it, really takes a lot of work to knead that falafel. But it was effing delicious.

There's a lot of great Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food without meat in it... But I don't think I could just ditch meat altogether. I had 3 bacon wrapped hot dogs for lunch today. They were amazing.

No work or girlfriend today, time to get my beer on.

I think we’ll win. We’re a better team than Tottenham & we have better players all over the pitch. Anything can happen in a final though so of course Tottenham have a chance.

This time next week I will be in Madrid & probably on my 2nd or 3rd beer of the day Cheesy
