A short pullback really wouldn't be too bad of a thing.

I agree and I feel it coming.

It would be good because it would make the run fill more real, so to say. If we reach 10k tomorrow, would you feel safe? I wouldn't. And what if instead we struggle between 7's and 8's for a while, with a quick dip even lower? I would feel much better than the five digits are here to stay.

the fair value of shitcoins is zero. null.
why would you advise bitcoiners to invest in scamcoins?

Although I appreciate the value of tribalism in a competitive environment, that is a very stupid comment if I may say so.

Bitcoin would be nowhere without "sh*coins" because they are the buttressing by which it survives. That "buttressing" provides hedging support, diversification, optimal access for new market participants and generally all round builds an industry in which bitcoin can consolidate roots.

Not least, alts are also a far more effective way of accumulating bitcoin than just buying bitcoin because at any given moment there's always one or more of them outperforming it for gain.

So all in all I wouldn't p*ss on the potato patch that you're growing in if I were you. (I also make the same case in reverse to sh*coin maximalists by the way - for the same reasons).

what is stupid by ALL means are shitcoins. you got it the wrong way around. bitcoin would be in much better shape by all metrics if there were no shitcoins. they provide no utility, they are scamming people, they keep good devs busy because every week there is a new shitcoin that needs to be implemented, they get marketed as "the better, faster, newer" bitcoin. the scamcoin sellers spill out nothing but hate towards bitcoin and its community. shitcoins need to be fought against in every legal way.

and yeah, some use speculating shitcoins to gain more btc. if i want to do that i just go into a casino because the level of scamming is lower there.

BTI is legit and we are strong supporters of bitcoin core tech :-D weeee

Yeah, but it gets a bit annoying when the folks always predict 50%-60% pullback that lasts 2-3 months.

But, what do those numbers you posted (2-2-10-4) mean? Just curious...

Play Railroad Tycoon, you'll learn. Cheesy



Great Series of games BTW.


Damn I miss that game. Goes great with a bag of weed (as do most things).

One of my favorite aspects was trying to bankrupt the other tycoons by manipulating their stock prices.

If you had enough capital to buy and crash the price of a competitor's stock, you could leave them forever bankrupt, unable to dig themselves out of massive debt. Fun!

What about Transport Tycoon... That what so far advance for it time!.. I remember the longer you played the slower it got!

The economic module of the game was fantastic. I usually played only as investor manipulating mine and all other stocks, trying to bankrupt the other rich guys, while having quit as a manager of the company and letting the game automanage it... Cool

Playing the market was a great part that I had totally forgot about!
OK, I have to dig it out now. I think I only have RT3 left so it'll have to be that one.

Anyone remember Transport Tycoon?... It was so far advance for its time. I remembered the longer you played the slower it got!.. Those super fast Pentiums was no match...

I never did try that one. I spent half the night on RRT3 and I'm going to have to setup a DX8.1 VM for it. I had it running but after adjusting monitor overscan while the game was running the thing went bonkers and won't fire up without detecting directx 8.1. Fucking h8 DX games. I did get through the tutorial as a refresher before the crash though.

Trading disclosure. I have two positions: a suffering short and a happy long (larger).

When it goez UP, I gainz moar because the long is larger. Cash out a bit.
When it goez DOWN, I looze moar but can refill the long a bit. If DOWN DOWN, cash out shortz.

If it goes UP like mad, I'll close both positions and gainz.
If it goes DOWN like mad, my stop will save some long gainz and I hope to close my short in the green (or just a little in the red).

This is similar to a double ladder (JJG/jbreher), with lots of manual nursing and tweaking.

UP slightly better, so I can close everything at once and gainz are simpler. So as a trader, ATM I have a more or less neutral stance. And that's just about my play money.

As a hodler, it's easy to guess where I stand.

I remember his BTC call of $80 back in 2014, waaay off but his LTC call in early 2017 was absolutely spot-on. His musings are generally interesting. Anyway, his current call is so fantastical that I'd believe when I see it.

His most likely scenario is:

Quote
So the $78k could be the second peak and after the halving and there would be no dip after $150k and instead the moonshot would be all the way from ~$30k to $500+K at the end of 2020.

Actually IIRC his LTC predictions were months too early and he had divested himself before it hit.
Sometimes spotting a trend too early is as bad as not seeing it at all.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FUDSTERS DON'T POST THIS BULLCRAP ANYMORE!!!  Cool

Even if the details and the reasons might be off by a long shot, I do think a correction is coming.

When and how big is anybody's guess, but it is due. No bull run went straight to the top, ever.


In other words

We smell a pullback
coming around the coner
bullcrap or bearcrap?

I always have a spare merit for a good haiku.

That's the one I used to play! It will be worth your troubles. Looking at that screenshot was like getting a distant whiff of crack. I already want to build a steel mill in Philadelphia. Nice company logo.

yeah this guy was spouting his theories of BTC clearly being a government-designed honeypot with which to trap libertarians into a fully state-controlled monetary environment back in 2014 - 2015. He was going to use his (self-proclaimed) genius-level IQ to design a fully anonymous coin (hence anonymint). Then there was his constant masturbating over spreading of Martin Armstrong's prediction of a complete economic collapse in the third quarter of 2015.

In other words: don't bother listening to this Craig Wright Lite.

He's not a POS like CW, he can see the problems and locate them in a system but seems to be unable to focus long enough to create a solution. I think he has realized there is no global solution so you have to find the correct balance of tradeoffs. Why he wouldn't follow the simple rule of not spamming multiple posts is beyond me, looked like a complex type thing. CW is the GWB of crypto while shelby is a top tier theorist but one that is disingenuous as often as not.

I don't want to argue about the TA presented here, but just note that on tradingview.com most of the TA suck. Many shorters use this platform to influence the traders and fall for their crap. Will there be 10-80% corrections - sure! Will it be easy to take advantage of it by selling/shorting - No! It is simple math. If you sell now, the rise will continue at least 10% from now with a very high probability. Then you have to wait a long time during which you risk to never see a price at your range. And if you endured this waiting, the best increase of stash you can hope for, will be most probably in the 10% area. So, for anyone with a sound mind is clear that trying to cut off the top is highly improbable. There is only one strategy which will make everyone investing in Bitcoin rich - HODL! I coud have sold at 20K but I decided to wait the higher price which will meet my needs and change my life. Was I sorry I didn't cash out and rebuy at 3k - of course, but nobody knew that we will have such a chance. What we can do is to invest more fiat and BTFD! I was many times since 2017 below my investment point. It was not pleasant, but that feeling is nothing compared to the regret when I missed the increase from 2400 to 4800. I don't want to feel that regret again, so I am not selling until my target price. And even if we crash $1 from my target price, I will endure and wait another year(s) if needed. Speaking of target price, I made a plan what initial portion to sell at what price and what stash to keep after that. I will not let any other opinion, event or my own emotions change that! And when I sell and Bitcoin continues to rise, I won't regret it, because I achieved my goals, and the remaining coins will give me a comfort that I have more profit to take in the future. So far I have profit equal to all 20 years salary before I retire. I intend to buy a beach villa or build a house and to have at least double than my salary will be until I retire. Will I buy lambo or a yacht - probably not (despite my avatar, which is not for the brand but more for the bull logo). I think that moving targets like to buy a lambo can ruin my profit, because my stash is relatively small - below 20. In my country the prices are cheap and I can save half of my salary, although it is 10 times lower than the rest of the world. Anyway, BTC is my only hope. So my advice for anyone, including shorters/nocoiners is only this -buy, wait and be patient. Your patience will be rewarded!

I was actually going to post something similar to your post today, explaining my strategy but then some shit came up and forgot about it.

That's also what I do.

Set a target, keep accumulating as it goes down up and sideways (DCA), buy the dips if possible, reach your target, dump away. There are 2 possibilities may play out after that:

a) It goes up you get stuck on the FIAT side, but it doesn't matter since you already have  shitloads of money which'll cover your ass no matter how high bitcoin goes later. You won't be missing much.

b) It goes %80 lower, so you can reinvest in some cheap coins with %25 of your profits. Rinse and repeat.

I believe as long as you set your target networth at something between $500k and $1m. You are in the safe zone. FIAT may become worthless in the next 10 years but $1m today still can unlock you many possibilities.

Don't bother with selling if you are going to get anything less than half a million imo. That's how I see it.

We are on the same page! My target networth is between $600k and $1.2m. It depends how long it will take to get to the target prices. I wish I had several more coins to make the first sell near 20K, but I don't. So, I will have to wait for the 50K-100K range. Of course, it won't be easy to get there but I have no doubts that in 1-5 years tops we will be there.
