You simply cannot time any top. (Traders confident in their own systems may disagree.) If you insist on selling some bitcoin Roll Eyes, you have to set scaled asks.
No doubt JJG can tell us more. Much more. Tongue

No need to repeat myself.

You seem to have GOTS the ideaeeer, V8.   Wink Wink  I believe in converting one peep at a time.

I smiled a tiny bit at the highlighted.
You've not coverted me.
Ain't selling at 100k, 260k or 260 mil.

Lambie I'd love to come to Vegas, but I must insist that we have a serious moment. Perhaps the address at the dinner could be given by that foremost bitcoin expert Ms Izabella Kaminska. I believe you know her well enough to invite her?

I hope you come to the Vegas party.
Sorry, Lambo Slayer, this was just a joke really. I can't get in to the US because of a youthful indiscretion.

Location aside, sadly I largely agree with Bob, not because I claim to be of the same ... girth as him, but still because of opsec reasons. Despite appearances I am very wary and hard to convince, and there are tons of things I just don't do irl. So we'll see.


I know you all could care less but if the party takes place in the U.S. I could not attend. I was a green card holder but used my regular (foreign) passport when entering the U.S. in 2003. They were about to throw me in jail for a couple of years because of this but was deported instead with life long forbidden re-entry. kind of sucks because half my family lives in the U.S.

I understand tough that Vegas makes sense.  Cry

Guys... No need to time the top.

- Set a financial target for a comfortable life for you + loved ones.
- Add 30% to that as a safety margin.
- HoDL your coinage until half of it is worth the above target.
- Sell said half of coinage (be careful how you do it).
- HoDL other half.
- Enjoy your life.
- Reap the new profits gained by your HoDL stash.
- A comfortable life is not a lazy life. Be productive.
- Keep working if your job is creative and enjoyable.

That's my plan.


That doesn't work for me. I don't have a specific financial target, and lifestyle can be flexible after a certain point... But I definitely want to catch this top and sell 20-25% instead of missing it and feeling stupid just because a predefined "financial target" was a bit too high.

I want to retire and enjoy life now, ok well maybe I can wait 2 years, but not 6 years! No way.

Catching the top is tricky though, esp. for a non-trader, so I'm thinking of selling 1-2% at every ATH, or something like that. It's too early to think about the exact strategy, will figure it out later. Maybe even oversell a little bit to rebuy later? For a non-trader that's playing with fire... might risk it anyway.

Any football (soccer) fans want to join our prediction pool for the Copa America.

0.002BTC to play. DarkStar is holding escrow.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5146493.0

1st place - 50% of prize pool
2nd place - 30% of prize pool
3rd place - 20% of prize pool


Apologies for off topic

Edit - I don’t get anything out of this btw. It’s just a prediction competition, the first three at the end win prizes. Nobody else gets anything. I did win the Premier League full season one though, a tidy 0.1BTC Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Breakout coming, fasten your seat belts.

Are we about to break out of this 6-month on-chain BTC volume range?
It would be the precursor to the sustained bull run if we did.
As @woonomic stated in his analysis yesterday, such a rise in on-chain activity would signal big players BTFD.
I am watching this closely 🧐

Hi Lambie -
Multi-paties and all are fine, no problem with that.  However, whether it's one or many parties - organising anything within a week or so of breaking an arbitrary figure in price is at the very least difficult.  Just booking things up and people dropping everything to book a flight to get there means it is tough to see how it would work.

Fixing a date (based on Halvening, say?) and finding out well in advance how many takers there are makes it more feasible to set up, I would have thought.  Shoot me down, by all means - but people have lives and need to plan in advance - even decent hotels, restaurants etc are best booked in advance, surely...  Not many people will put a deposit down for a party on an unknown future date.  So how would you know numbers in order to book anything?

Also, for me and maybe I am not alone (I have no idea) I am not really up for hookers and blow. Never have been for the former, have weaned myself off the latter...  Call me a party pooper, if you like, but don't get me wrong; I do like the the idea of a party and a chance to meet people I have share the ups and downs with for years.  I also know some will head for the hookers and blow - and good luck to them, if they do - but I hope that is not all it is about. If there was a choice, I would be opting for beers and a chat.

Lastly, I might also like to explore a city and meet new friends with my partner in town with me. I may be alone in having this as a preference of course - but if it raises eyebrows to suggest this, I will just have to wait and hear tales of what I missed out on.

Edit: Some of this answered above while I was typing.

In many cities this could be a problem, but in Vegas I can promise you that booking the restaurant for 25 people, nightclub for 75 people or less, stripclub 75 people or less, 1 stretch limo, and brothel for 25 people or less with a weeks notice would be eezy peezy lemon breezy.

A week is also plenty of time to get a fairly cheap plane ticket and hotel rooms are always abundant and inexpensive relative to quality in Vegas, even on zero days notice. Saturday is actually a better day since some will still have jobs and need to work Friday so consider this an amendment to my proposal. Also remember in my post no one but the host would have to put down a deposit for anything. As a Vegas host Im willing to pay in advance out of my pocket for the limo, VIP table and bottle deposits(the will likely just want to put a hold on a credit card at the most, if anything). The restaurant wont need a deposit for a party of 25, the stripclub wont need a deposit, and the brothel will not need a deposit.  

Multiple hosts is also to help with the fact that some will want a more wholesome party. I would never call you a party pooper for having different tastes. Also remember people can stay longer than a night and as WO members meet they can make separate plans to do things on sunday monday or however long they stay in town.

My party structure proposal did have 4 events and only the last 2 were of the non wholesome variety, but certainly a host could make a party with lots of wholesome events and completely avoid anything on the leaning towards debauchery.



What if we hold multiple party over the world, each one sporting a particular theme?

e.g. (fist ideas)

  • Las Vegas: Lambie Style "wild party": hookers, strippers and raw meat.
  • Maundays Bay, Anguilla: Laid back beach party Mic's Style, drinks, chatter and friendship in a beautiful landscape.
  • Paris: Refined and classy party, tuxedos, gowns  and white gloves.
  • Oxford: Knowledge Party: we use proceeds for the party to invite best lecturer and minds from all over the world to discuss about Bitcoin (jimmy Song, A Antonoupolous etc..)
  • Nairobi/Maui/Lhasa (or whatever else in the world): Exploring/Adventure/Surfing/Safari/Hiking or whatever not bitcoin lateral activity. For someone now rich enough to afford a life relieving/soul enlightening experience.



The downside is that is that to gain traction it would be open also to guest/friends (maybe hatter could sport a sort of VIP treatment) but it would be nice to have each one of use finding their sweet spot.




Yes, i like this, the more parties the better. Having more parties increases chances of success. Having one big clusterfuck party means something will happen to fuck it up and we get zero parties.

Sure it might seem futile if [you are] comparing himself to other WO members or even the hypothetical bitcoin holdings of other WO members (who are largely quasi-fictitional avatars)


<-- quasi-fictional avatar

The Schroedinger event may or may not be the $100K party. Only one way to find out.

I've acquired an actual, IRL jbreher photo. It's a violation of his personal privacy and secops, but who cares?

but I would guess at least 60-80 with an average of 2 guests each so that would mean at least 210 people.

And average of 2 guests seems a bit too much. Most guys have only one GF/wife. Smiley
So maybe 1 guest per old hat...

One does not simply bring a gf/wife to a strip club. The smart ones would leave them at home Wink
You don't bring sand to a beach.   Wink Wink
You don’t bring beer to Octoberfest


Honestly I would hope everyone at 100k would have left their wife or GF, or at the least gotten her to agree to threesomes upon request and to accept that monogamy for her man was a thing of the past. You all remember the Seinfeld episode where the guy became a doctor and left Elaine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woJBoao4EUU

Guest would be expected to be groupie chicks or maybe a friend who you converted from nocoiner slavery and wagecuckery and you wanted them to celebrate with you bc while not on WO they were your HodleHomie all along.

A little shocked you guys might think I was condoning bringing sand to the beach. Perhaps we should make it a no GF/wife allowed party......

Im sorta kidding, but not really though  Wink

Sorry to hear that! This is however why Im proposing multiple parties to solve all our problems. We could space them out a bit so some people could attend both.

Holding a PORTFOLIO with more than one woman is recipe for disaster.

You can bet one at a time, no problem,long term or day trading very high turnover: no problem.
You can leverage and go long two or more different women for very short periods of time. risky, but no problem.
But investment...man we are talking about long term. Two girls is going to collapse. Transaction costs and BS management is going to kill you.

Same with drugs.
