another bcash idiot for my ignore list

saying that segwit is not bitcoin is the same like saying TCP is not IP. it's the same, but it's another layer. TCP can't exist without IP and segwit can't exist without bitcoin.
Saying that is actually wrong. You are mixing up SegWit and LN. LN is another layer. SegWit is part of Bitcoin.

I'm not sure about this, maybe you are right. But LN is based on segwit and segwit has a second name, the consensus layer.
Actually it's as Lauda says. The Segregated Witness thingy basically alters the transaction format so that certain (most) cryptographic proofs (the "witness") are not on the main blockchain (they're "segregated"). That's why space can be saved: segwit transactions can be stored more efficiently because some data can be discarded. As a result, the average transaction fee is significantly lower.

That's why space can be saved: segwit transactions can be stored more efficiently because some data can be discarded. This is why fees are significantly lower.
This is also incorrect. The signatures get stored in the chain as before, they just aren't counted towards the classic block size limit due to the segregation that you have mentioned. Space isn't saved, the chain size is growing much faster than ever. The ignorant/uneducated/bamboozled folk that said 'too little too late' were completely wrong; even this "little" increase is starting to become a mild issue.

I'm not sure about this, maybe you are right.
In these matters, it's usually unwise to doubt my answer (if anything, it's usually just oddly written rather than incorrect). Tongue

I stand corrected. Witness data can be removed from the Merkle tree, not from the chain.

Are you long or short? What % of capital? What are your take profit and stop loss levels?
I'm long.

If you count the btc/fiat/stocks ratio I'm 99% btc, and have been so since 2016. If you take properties/land into the equation I'm still 80% btc.

I'm debt-free. I have my own house and my own land.

I sell a small portion every month to cover my bills and everyday expenses. The rest stays in btc -- always.

I quit my corporate job in 2016. Because fuck them.

For me there is no take profit level. When the time comes, I won't need fiat.

4. VanEck offers limited Bitcoin ETF
5. Franklin Templeton tokenize fund

MONTHLY sMERITS BALANCE

Code:
SMerits Balance=Received Merits/2-Sent Merits

Positive Balance means an user has been increasing sMerits on the WO thread, while negative numbers means the users has sent more merits on WO than received.
Negative numbers are possible or because he has been generous this week because he has been greedy past weeks (so only temporary imbalance), or because he has hoarded sMerits on other threads spending them on WO thread, or because he's a merit source.

Nice update, I think monthly cadence is more insightful, as less prone to weekly imbalances due to MS drought (mic, I do hear you).
Sadly, It a little bit delayed update, but I commit doing those as soon as sir LoyceV releases data dumps.


Still fixing glitches here and there, I am using this to getting better at data management (errors are mine).

I expect/hope 12K to be broken next week.

No.

11k is too hard to break.

We got too close and look what happened.
Ohh no again bought at the wrong time it seems.Hopefully there won't be too much dump from 10K region.

God no more four digit figures. Lips sealed


Surely we are getting within striking distance of 4 digits, but is this merely a fake out?     I would not proclaim to know, even though the BAKKT seems to be bullish in terms of what would seem to need to be extra demands on actual BTC supply - plus of course, another route for institutional money to more easily and justifiably get a bit of BTC stake.
Thank God the price seems to be stable at $10300 after that sudden dump.Where we are heading now?

Further price fall in this weekend or this is going to be bullish again?

We are stuck in a band between 9,300 and 11,300. It’s a bit irrelevant where it goes in that band it’ll bounce all over the place. What’s important is whether it breaks up or down.

80% chance we will eventually break upwards.
It feels so good to hear that 80% of chances to increase. Kiss

Anyway I am not selling anything in the near future but I am worried that whenever I invest on the bitcoin there is sudden dump immediately.

Am I the most unluckiest man in this world? Cry


You are here, so you are very lucky (as are we).

You just need to shift your mindset to a minimum of five years.

Yes.  Exactly.   Even if I don't really agree with assigning an 80% probability of an upside breakout, in the short term, in the end, it might not matter too much. 

If anyone is worried about whether the break out is going to be up or down or the assignment of probabilities should be 58% or 80% to the upside, then you have not spent enough time accumulating and dollar cost averaging which in any 5 year time frame has very decent chances to being up rather than down or flat... which seems to be one of the reasons that bitcoin remains one of the best investments currently in terms of both hedging and having a decent asymmetric bet (to the upside, of course).

The vast majority of us should realize that there are no guarantees, and also that we don't want to become over-reliant or over-invested in one direction, such as up, even though such upward direction continues to have very decent probabilities of happening... but even with "very decent probabilities of up," that still is far from a guarantee.

Btc/Usd

For the short term i'm watching the yellow EMA line, which currently acts as a support on the 4h chart. The 4h candle closed above it. Currently the yellow line is around 10.270 Usd. If it stays above it will be bullish. If not we will find other support.


You sound undeniably correct.

BTC's price is going to go down until it stops going down, and if it does not stop going down where it should stop, then BTC's price is going to go down more.

I have learned a lot about bitcoin and about myself from such observations.    Wink  The chart helps to make that point, too.. Comes off as more professional.  Wink

I don't know about you but i buy on the support bounce. So i bought some back. If it reaches my target between 10.800 and 11.000 i sold 3 times already there. Yes it goes up and down but i tell where is the support (buy) and where resistance (sell). If it goes bellow support it means sell. (well i trade only 20% of my holdings, i never sell all.) Trader has to be prepared for both ways.

...This time, around, I don't really care, and I am fine with just continuing to follow my system that only sells small amounts on the way up and also buys back on the way down in intervals that are reasonable for me, and the tweaking this time around is to spread the intervals even more than they had been the first time around, but otherwise I am largely keeping with my system because I like it..

So, yeah a week or two ago, in our run up to a bit above $11k, I made several sales on the way up, and bought back at various points between about $10k and $9,400, and in this last run up to nearly $11k, I had a few BTC sell orders trigger, so the more that triggered, the higher my buy back points are.  I have sell orders on different exchanges so some of them triggered and some of them did not, but so far in this particular most recent correction, from today, NONE of my BTC buy back orders have triggered yet, and most of them are set for a little bit below $10k.  

In my earlier days, I would have had both my BTC buy orders and my BTC sell orders more tightly structured; however, these days I am more happy with larger intervals and my goal and recent practice has been to increase and increase and increase the integers in which such orders are triggered.

Another way of conceptualizing my strategy towards my BTC holdings has been to attempt to create my BTC buy/sell orders in such a way that I am largely NOT too much attached to price direction.. neither psychologically nor financially.  

Of course, I profit more from upwards BTC price movements, but it is also in my thinking that inevitably in the longer term BTC's price is much more likely to go up than it is to go down, but in the meantime, I am profiting from volatility in such a way that it causes me to become less and less concerned about BTC's price going down.  

Also, I have a plan that is projected into the future of starting to liquidate 1% of the value of my BTC stash per quarter, so long as the BTC price is not below $5k, and I am thinking that I will start to employ that particular plan in a few years, and I think that there are real decent chances that the BTC price is not going to go below $5k in the coming years or to interfere with my tentative liquidation plan, and if BTC's price does go below $5k, then I will just plan to hold off on cashing out my 1% during any such quarters that the BTC price does go below $5k, if such periods of low BTC price performance were to come, once I start my liquidation plan.

The strategy of constantly selling and buying has one weakness: it produces LOTS of tax obligations during periods of fast btc growth.
Theoretically, if someone was selling extensively, then re-buying in 2017, then watching btc declining to 3k while having serious tax obligations resulting in a need to a selling of the additional chunk at a suboptimal (low) price.
Of course, this would not be the case when ample cash is available to pay the tax.
In other words, in high taxing environment, this strategy might backfire.

On the other hand, trying to sell at the top could be a difficult undertaking as well. The local top is currently projected (by various authors) to be anywhere between 30K and 400K. Tough choice.
HM here favors 180K (don't know where the number came from, maybe just personal preference).
My current feel is to allocate certain % for a sale, then sell once a personal preference is set in 1/10 fractions of the final number of btc sells. I intend to sell only up to 20% of my btc at the next ATH, knowing fully well that the rest would probably correct to 20% of the value. Why? Because I don't want to lose my position due to unforeseen price trajectory changes (like a double peak of 2013)..

saying that segwit is not bitcoin is the same like saying TCP is not IP. it's the same, but it's another layer. TCP can't exist without IP and segwit can't exist without bitcoin.

Not sure you realize what you are saying here. IP certainly does exist independent of any TCP layer. By (your egregiously flawed) analogy, bitcoin certainly does exists independent of any SegWit. Indeed, without recourse to any analogy, bitcoin doth exist independent of SegWit. Remember -- "soft" fork? "Not" mandatory?

There's a lot of evidence that Segwit is the alteration. Read the docs, the white paper
The same evidence that CSW is satoshi?

WTF are you on about? How could evidence of personal identity have anything whatsoever to do with evidence of protocol change?

I'm not sure if you're trolling or trying to be serious.

Back at ya.

See any evidence of SegWit in the white paper? No?

Explicitly in front of your face. Willful dereliction of truthiness.

SegWit was indeed an alteration of the Bitcoin protocol. Undeniably. There is really no way to argue otherwise.
