It's not very easy to fix a broken parabola.

This will be painful to watch. Looks like %55 may be next. I'll try to increase my ALT* exposure to %2 and will cash out to BTC if it ever reaches %10. Sounds like a decent plan.

*By "ALT"s I mean LTC, XMR, Grin, Doge (maybe), Raven. Not absolute shits like ETH, Ripple, Bcash etc.

Roger is on, go get your popcorns.  Grin

lol Roger... what an enigma. I'd love to know where he went so wrong. I actually think he has had some sort of mental break

He definitely cares about that red stuff. He went nuts when Carvalho said "bcash" too. He definitely cares about these. Go and break him.  Grin

That would be the scene to watch.

Well that was fun. Think he's logged off, physically and mentally. He'll be back in another 3-6 months to show how little he's changed.

Interesting to read a debunking of the 'in jail for fireworks' line:

I somehow don't believe his story of going to jail for 10 months for selling firecrackers on ebay.  I think there is something to the story he is leaving out.
Here's a transcript of the sentencing hearing, detailing exactly why he was sentenced to 10 months in jail, including the parts of the story he may have left out. Spoiler alert: pipe bombs aren't firecrackers.

Whats this crap about alts on the green and btc being tiny red?

Anon prediction about BTC dominance at 40-46%? He never said when.. but but...


My theory about this is that when the mainstream coins like Libra hit the market, they will bring the Bitcoin dominance down because they will be pumped/inflated. Im sure next year we will see Google, Apple, Amazon, etc all jump in. Bitcoins dominance will have to compete with those coins to which would likely bring the dominance down.

P.S. this guy is going to become an absolute god if we hit $16,000 next month.....

-He called the bottom (A lot of people thought we were going much lower when he posted it)
-He called the exact length of the accumulation phase (Said it would end in March and start in April)
-He called the April boom we saw in the first week
-He called the correct price in April
-He called the correct price in July (Bitcoin almost made it out of July without touching $9200, turns out $9100 was the bottom; we haven't gone lower since)

So October will be interesting, this is a legendary posts regardless, the amount of things he has gotten correct already is remarkable.

CMC can suck anything for money but I think even they haven't lost their mind that much to list Libra as a cryptocurrency.

I don't believe Facebook will join that MarketCap rat-race neither.

Anyhow, I had done a decent amount of accumulating of BTC in 2014 and brought my average BTC price down from $1k to below $400, and I also made some mistakes including getting hacked through sim porting, which moved my average price per BTC up to $750-ish.  I have also lost some BTC on exchanges such as WEX (used to be BTC-E), so I consider those to be risks of the practice and probably, I should have taken more value off of that exchange while the getting was good.... but these days, I probably would consider my average cost per BTC to be somewhere above $750 but still in the three digits.

+WO merit since I'm out of the regular, thanks for sharing your story. I had a coworker that introduced me to it maybe in 2014 or so but I didn't understand the draw, at the time it seemed overly complicated for no benefit and I wasn't looking at it as an investment vehicle just as an interesting technology. Mid 2017 I got in, shortly before the big run and that made me think I'm a genius rather than just lucky and I evangelized to my family and friends. Some of my family bought in then of course at the high. They are still holding though they haven't added to their positions, whereas I've been faithfully DCA'ing ever since. My amounts and entry point mean I probably won't become personally life-changing wealthy but I'm hopeful it will accent my retirement and provide some easing through life's ups and downs for my kid. I tend to look at it as an inter generational wealth opportunity. Though I'm a confirmed hodler I have several dream benchmark levels to encourage myself...
1. mortgage payoff
2. retirement at 80% of current lifestyle level
3. retirement at 120% of current lifestyle level
4. kid's entire college tuition
5. kid's entire college tuition at a top tier school through grad school
6. retirement at 120% level before I hit actual retirement age
7. medical emergency care fund equivalent to 2x mortgage payoff
8. being able to do the same for my family
9. own first hotel on the lunar surface



+1WO. (because I am in smerit drought)
Very nicely put.
Something is good to fix exit points. Having target means you have an opportunity to re-evaluate your investments and decide how to proceed.
Something you should constantly do, but human nature is complicated so  we are not adapt to reason in the continuum of the financial markets: we need steps.

Agreed, I guess that will be up for debate when the time comes. Same with the government currency like Chinas?

Yes. Same idea. CMC shouldn't list Ripple neither but I am pretty sure Ripple Corp paid them well to suck that thing.

I'll explain why think like the I way think.

A cryptocurrency should be immutable, decentralized.

Everybody knows there will ever be 21m bitcoins and not 1 more. Everybody knows bitcoin's future inflation rate will be.

These features apply to many decent altcoins too. These are consensus rules.

Ripple has no consensus. Libra has none. Whatever currency will the Chinese be issuing don't have them neither. Libra is basically tether on steroids. It is just a combination of FIAT and assets(!). You can see the FED's balance sheet right now. It goes up, it goes down. Somebody is deciding this. Not many people but only a few. This is centralized. Libra is centralized. Ripple is a centralized shitcoin. Government coins are centralized.

Government coins can't be decentralized because if they do, there won't be any need for a government. So they ain't any fucking crypto. They are just FIAT without any physical papers. More of the same.

I used to think what if BTC becomes successful and replaces the physical papers? I didn't like that idea at first. To me physical paper money is a good thing. When there is enough demand for them, the banks can't provide you the liquidity and they go bankrupt. This is the safety valve which keeps the system healthy. If a bank can't provide you the liquidty, it means they don't have your money. The bank shouldn't exist.

When too many shitty zombie companies emerge, a crash happens and they go away. The system keeps itself in check. They want to remove this by issuing crypto like currencies and banning physical money.

Bitcoin isn't something like that. Not even close. You either have bitcoins or you don't.

There is no reasons that Libra will not be on CMC. Of course it will. There are a lot of tokens there. What CMC should do is to make different lists and not mix pears with apples.

If libra is factored into Bitcoins dominance, does bitcoins dominance even matter? Same with government coins, bank coins, etc....

I think at that point bitcoins dominance should not be against other digital payment methods, but rather all value of any payment including fiat. If the end game goal is to become the peer to peer payment system then Bitcoins dominance should be charted against all payment(fiat, libra, government coins, bank coins etc etc,), not just cryptocurrency.

I really like your customized tiering of goals that seems to recognize that you are investing in possibilities that may or may not be achieved, and actually it might not even hurt to have lower level goals too, in terms of accumulation levels, etc etc etc.

I am not asserting that you don't have lower level goals, as well, but just mentioning that for other readers here who might benefit from considering ways to create lower level goals that can also help to show them, on a personal level, that they are making progress in their preferred direction.  For the most part, wealth does not come all at once, but it comes gradually, and maybe even at some point, if you are preparing and preparing and preparing, you may end up in a position in which you actually get lucky and generate a whole hell of a lot more wealth (and more quickly) than you had expected (which is kind of what happened with me, in bitcoin).

So, yeah, I recognize also, and probably you do too, that maybe you will not achieve the differing level goals, but it is good to have them, including relatively high ones, and also to, perhaps, tweak them along the way to make higher goals and/or goals that fall between ones that you had established earlier.
