Dan Matuszewski, Principal and Co-Founder of CMS Holdings joins the pod this week to discuss a range of topics. Dan was previously the Head of Circle Trade, one of the largest OTC desks in the cryptoasset industry. In this episode we discuss:

- The secretive origins of Circle

- Why banking was a big hindrance for early crypto companies

- The genesis of Circle Trade and their relationship with Poloniex

- Whether there is a market for 'virgin' coins

- The nature of Tether and how it is used

- The emergence of crypto volatility products

There, now I get my 30 shekels from finex and everyone's happy.

Part of the email polo sent me, apparently they are going to liquidate to USDC rather than USDT.

Poloniex US is closing. You must withdraw all of your crypto before December 16, 2019. You will no longer have direct access to your Poloniex US account if you don’t withdraw all of your crypto before December 16. All cryptocurrencies remaining in your account after that date will be traded into and stored as USDC.


Well said. This angryeta thing won't end well...

Btw, why can't I find any reference (in english) to the "scandal" over the hyper expensive refined wood and LEATHER designer chair at their home?

Anyway, here it is in spanish: https://www.elmundo.es/f5/comparte/2019/12/03/5de636f521efa070288b4615.html

The irony and hypocrisy is very strong on that one.

P.S.:



I was watching a restoration show that the guy was restoring that exact chair (white one), good catch guys!



Did someone die and put you in charge of my ability to exercise posting discretion?

What a world, what a world!!!





Dammit you dissolving not melting its friggin water!!!




So hey guys, I had a bit of interest re my art submission, a couple PMs asking if they were available for sale.  Well, I have given it a little thought and talked with the guy that actually owns the plasma setup.

At this point I am just gauging interest to see if it is really worth burning a batch.  I'm certainly not wanting to annoy anyone or break any rules turning this into a for sale thread, just get a feel for if it might be worth my time to move further.  If there is interest I will be starting a dedicated thread.

I wouldn't really be making anything on the deal if it were to happen, but I would want to slip a bit to my buddy.  He is an independent maker/artist type and the plasmaCAM is an expensive bit of kit.

The desk ornament/bookend thing from the art thread would ship for $20 equivalent BTC.

Also, there is a new prototype, smaller, that another blacksmith buddy can value add into belt buckles;

   

Those would ship for $40 equivalent.  

At these rates domestic US orders would be slightly subsidizing international shipping and I would be hoping to break even.

I'll take a buckle, pm me the thread when you start it.

I like that belt buckle but dunno if I could swing the P.I.M.P look.  Jot me down for a bookend if you do a run.

What would really drive worldwide adoption?

Biometric scans and mobile devices, maybe?
This means everybody must have a smartphone or device that is able to process QR codes and do OCR (scan bitcoin addresses), which is additionally offering a retina-scan camera, fingerprint sensor, saliva-analyzer or similar, to make sure that only the owner of the device can access the private key, decrypt the seed, handle transactions (and so on).

As cool and clever BTC might be, as hard and risky it is to use for average joe. He wants to flick an rfid card, maybe enter a short pin code, but that's it. Everything more inconvenient will scare him off, and average jane even more. Simple interfaces using secure backend solutions.

Don't call me names, i'm just brainstorming.
Who wants to join?

Brainstorming has a simple rule: No criticism allowed.
Instead of "You can't do X, because Y..." it's "To achieve X, you need to realize Y first, (which is dependent on A,B,C...)"
It's strictly constructive.

Anybody in?

EDIT: Maybe there's an existing thread, please point me to it if you know. If not and this starts to get somewhere, i'd start a new thread and ask the mod to move over existing comments.

Might be a good topic for a new thread.., especially if you don't want the questions and answers to get lost in the mess...  and of course, sometimes brainstorming does involve criticisms... these here are the interwebs.. not necessarily always the safest of spaces, and does it really matter if people criticize from time to time?... you fucker.

  Shocked Shocked Shocked   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  Cheesy Cheesy

Always appreciate you opinion, but brainstorming is not about criticism at all. It's a process of contribution and exploring (inter)dependencies within complex systems.
However, how dare you believe i don't appreciate criticism? It's an expression of honesty, freedom of speech and integrity (at least).
Well, just to make it clear, debating and criticism is necessary. I never blamed anyone for criticism and i'll never try to.
Shutting up is much worse. Except you are realr0ach, then it's just fine as a default mode.

Still, brainstorming is, by definition, a little different to discussing.
The bottom line: If we want average joe to put his money into bitcoin, it has to be convenient and safe for him to do so.
If you think i don't understand "adoption" correctly in this regard, please correct me with your unique writing style (which i love, but gives me a hard time to interpret correctly what you mean, sometimes. Hard lessons for a non native speaker). #nohomo

Hmm, but we didn't even see the last of the sub $6k...
I'm prepared for $3000 * 1.8 before starting to climbing over the 2017 ATH.
Time to set some buy orders in that region, but i'll be fine with any price before the halving and sell a part of my fiat on the way down for corn.

We’re over 80% up from where we were 1 year ago to the day. We’re in a boring, accumulation phase. Some call it sideways, some might say mini bear market. I call it more opportunity for cheap/affordable coins.

If fish live in it then it doesn't meet the definition of standing (which becomes stagnant) water unless those fish can breath air. There are some species of fish that can breath air and live in stagnant water but they are far and few between. Without circulation oxygen is not replaced in water so the fish will slowly suffocate.


True but how small is it?   You can (should) put oxygen weed in it.

It was explained to me nicely that even a dip to 6000$ levels is to be expected sooner or later.
I was so sure for half of this year we'll see prices near the ATH this winter I am quite lost now. I guess that we have to rethink it all. That's what I do. I start thinking that the sooner we get those low prices the better. Then the growth can start again.

What would really drive worldwide adoption?


Most necessary requirement IMO is a stable price, or at least a price that can go down 20% in one day. Most merchant are not willing to adopt Bitcoin because of that. I mean if Bitcoin stays the same it is today, that means 3 confirmations can require 60 minutes or more on a bad day.

Of course if a transaction can be received within 5 minutes that would solve this issue.

I myself was sometimes reluctant to withdraw my salary in Bitcoin during bearish times, so I would most for bullish signals to withdraw my salary, otherwise on a 2000 EUR payout I would be credited 1950 EUR, you basically lost 2.5% of your salary within 60 minutes just because of Bitcoin network.
But I heard Lightning Network could solve this? Hope so.

Bitcoin 6k 2017! Bitcoin 6k 2018! Bitcoin 6k 2019! Bitcoin 2020?
Your post doesn't make any sense.

2019 for instance was fantastic, imagine buying on January 1 and selling at the end of June, difficult to expect such profit within such a short period outside the crypto world.
2020 will be quite poor though with a price not moving as much as usual. Could be wrong, we will see!

Didn't read much sense from you as well in the WO and way less out the WO  Roll Eyes  Kiss


It's funny that he started scam thread on one betting site here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5165118.msg51820682#msg51820682


yet is shilling for another in a self moderated thread that I linked the trust score for and he deleted.

But there is a silver lining, I got a merit from Bitcoin Forum from the Deleted/Off-limits/Ignored section!
Code:
December 02, 2019, 02:46:30 PM: 1 from (Bitcoin Forum) for (Deleted/Off-limits/Ignored)
It's my favorite merit now and I never knew they actually got read there!
It's nice to know the mods read what these scammers delete out of their self moderated threads.

I'm thinking about leaving him some red.

Is this is the same guy that is in that non escrowed bet with LFC?

If so I would recommend LFC demand an escrow.

Same guy I would recommend as well even the bet  is not about to much.... then again he claims to be a man of his worth

But what intriges me is he makes threads about how bad the WO is and needs to be moderated by someone better, while we have the best man for the job .... though he can’t stay away from the WO and post almost every day in here Roll Eyes

I shouldn't be replying to this, but couldn't resist...

So, you're worried that you lost 2.5% of your salary in 60 minutes? Do you really think this matters? Check your balance in a couple of years and tell me then how much you've lost...

I bought my first Bitcoin at $200 from a Bitcoin ATM in 2015. The moment it arrived in my wallet, the balance was $178 (11% loss). I should have felt so sad and cheated, right? 11% loss in 10 minutes! Wow!

As of now, one Bitcoin is worth around $7200. That's 3500% (or 35x) gain in 4 years. Go find a bank or other investment that can beat that.

Enough said. HoDL.
