BTW, if you make all those accounts on a single Trezor, they are all connected anyway.

how they are connected from the outside view? you generate 1000 addresses for 1 BTC and split it to 0.001 on every single address with WasabiWallet for example.

I will consider all costs against the hypothetical benefit in the future.

how? I'm very interested in your answer, really.


And if you do use a mixer or are able to really ofuscate your coins... then comes the problem on future AML/KYC where you could have problems spending your coins.

if you have countries like Portugal or Germany (where you just have to prove you own the address more than a year) i do expect not a large problem even if you have to go with the AML/KYC procedure.

Prove of ownership more than a year in the past for a single adress with a amount of 0.001 BTC on it would be perfect for me in 2027.  Grin

Well, let's say you do your split one BTC into 1000 parts. Ok, unless you do a lot more additional movements it would be easy to see where do those BTC come from. AND if you ever use more than one to do a payment (ie: for any tx higher than 0.001) you will have to combine several and then it will be absolutely clear the common point where these addresses come from.

It's not just proof of ownership, but origin of funds... something that complicates if you do manage to really obfuscate the origin of yours. And in the case of using a mixer, you could end with coins "tainted" in some way or another.

I mean, yeah, go split some of your coins if you want.... but don't go full retard on it Tongue

i don't doubt that if you have addresses with which you will get in focus of authorities because you have an monthly income of <10k and you want to cash out an address with >500k on it. but if you are flying under the radar with small addresses you don't have to prove the origin of funds. and even if. I bought mining equipment in 2013 for what? to play SatoshiDice and lost all or either not.

When BTC goes 1mio, the tax authorities will have software that tells them exactly to which wallet an address holding coins belongs as bitserve already explained, there will be certainly no more "under the radar" by then latest. Some block explorers can do a good job on associating addresses to wallets already nowadays.
Also consider that when BTC goes to 1mio, you won't be able to cash out the smallest amount to fiat without KYC, I would consider that too.

Like bitserve I'd also strongly really recommend against such a 1000-split. Otherwise you need to go through a mixer or an exchange but these fees would kill your plan completely.

Writing from a tax paradise with regards to crypto coins it could be perceived as offensive and rude if I would say "just pay your taxes then", but it could save you some trouble and a lot of fees though I am not in your shoes and can't judge what taxes would eat away.






Here you go, either BitCoin goes 'arm in arm' on best purpose as planned already by Satoshi right from the start, means most transparent and even IP to IP, not anonymous as later it was altered into...

Or BTC will get into serious problems. No world wide adoption I see here

I think 1000 .001 btc addresses is overkill. The idea suggested by bitserve makes more sense to me. I'd make 4 addresses, 250 mbtc each. Or split one of them recursively:

1/2, 1/4, 1/8, .... , 1/n, 1/n (the last two addresses get the same amount).

You would have plenty of granularity this way.

thank you Eddie! my urine is just telling me in 10 years the idea was not overkill.  Grin

remember the early days. they had paper wallets with 50 BTC on it because mining reward was 50 BTC. if you will find such a piece of paper behind your couch you can buy a flat or a house with it depending on your area.

I say it is a bad idea anyway.
Personally, I don't intend to nickel and dime it.
If and when 1mil..or 100k..or something in between, will transfer a piece to exchange (probably where I bought it in the first place), get cash, pay tax, etc.
However, for pure expense management having a few various size accounts: around 1, 0.1, 0.001, 0.0001btc makes sense (yep, granularity).
Those happen naturally in most cases.
Then, depending on the fiat vs btc, 1btc would be another house, car or vacation vs 0.1btc being a good car, a suit, Oculus Rift, etc.

Writing from a tax paradise with regards to crypto coins it could be perceived as offensive and rude if I would say "just pay your taxes then", but it could save you some trouble and a lot of fees though I am not in your shoes and can't judge what taxes would eat away.

Well, if my coins are ever worth several million US dollars, I wouldn't mind paying my taxes and thus being able to spend the rest of my wealth without worrying about the tax man checking me out all the time. For example, assuming I end up holding the equivalent of $100m, I wouldn't mind at all paying even half of it ($50m) in taxes! If this means that I end up with $50m that I can freely and totally legally spend without worrying at all, I'm perfectly happy with that.

BTW, the above is purely hypothetical, I forgot my passphrase, all coins gone, now only have what's left in my Kraken account (around 1000 Doge I think)...

I haven't really made my mind about taxes (sometimes i think it is theft, sometimes I think we need to pay taxes or else everything will fall apart. Can't decide.) though I am not sure if you would be OK when you see the amount they are going to ask from you.

I'll give you a hint. They'll ask at least 1/3. Most likely half.

I am no fucking way OK with this amount. NO. Fuckin. Way. (1/3, maybe but it is still going to make me sad and angry.)

Where do you live? Even in the extortionate USA, long term capital gains is 20%. And there are avenues to shield a portion of that (e.g. investing in economically disadvantages zones, etc.). Of course, that's only the income tax. And only federal at that. But perhaps you overstate the problem?

#human activity#

I'm thinking about how to split 1 BTC for future use. if the price will go somewhere to the 1m level I will however be under the radar of large fiat tx monitoring (<10k EUR) by authorities.

I'm uncertain about to spilt 1 BTC to 1,000 (0.001) or 10,000 (0.0001) adresses and hold them on a TREZOR.

any thoughts on that from you guys?

EDIT: but I think split 1 BTC to 1,000 adresses (1,000 x 0.001) should be enough.

All the effort we made in 2017 to try merge our BTC to avoid outrageous fees when claiming forks and now you are telling us it was an stupid move?

On perspective, yeah, it somehow was.

But... splitting one BTC into 1000 addresses? That is even more stupid.

If you want to split a BTC why not something like: 1x0.5, 1x0.25, 2x0.1, 5x0.01

I don't think the price will go somewhere near that "1m" level, at least not in this decade, but... if it happened I am sure I would have enough money to solve the problem and don't care.

Really, you don't want to split a BTC into that many useless parts that could be worth even less than the fees to move em.


2017..... fuck...... .


Mistakes were made.


Question becomes.  Should attempt to undo such mistakes now, or just leave things as they are.... and/or wait for better tools...

  I am afraid that some effort to take action now and separate coins, like you suggested bitserve, to split your coins into small manageable portions is just going to have a decent amount of potential to backfire in several ways... including not only the fees, as you mentioned, but also being able to go back and look at the same amount being split from a single source... reasonable inference that those are all owned by the same person, no?

Surely some tools are going to be developed, and seems that there are some on lightning network.  

Let's say that you have 1BTC in a single address, but you want to start spending BTC from that address in 2027 to live on and for anticipated extra luxurious spendings... You might already have your regular funds and accounts, but this next six months you have a BTC spending plan which involves Going on vacation, airplane tickets and hotels, renting a car or two, buying some groceries, going out eating, and since 1 BTC is $1 million in 2027, you consider that you are only going to need about .06 BTC ($60k) for all of your anticipated extra vacationing/splurging expenses for the next six months.  Accordingly, each month you send your .01 BTC from your 1btc address to your lighting channel, and as you spend those funds in the lightning channel, you replenish the channel with another .01BTC.  What is wrong with that?  Maybe you keep drawing from the same 1BTC address that gets depleted down to .94 over the next 6 months, but the recipient of the funds cannot see what address is funding your lightning channel, just can see that your channel has .01BTC or whatever amount that you need to make whatever purchases that you are making.

If that lightning channel tool is not available in 2027, then there could likely be other tool(s) that are available so that you could spend the equivalent of an extra $10k per month or whatever happens to be your budget, and not necessarily show from where the source funds are coming... AmiNOTrite?   I would not need to play around with the whole 1BTC at one time, just to incrementally spend from that source.. and it might even be way more manageable than if I had prematurely divided that 1 BTC into 1,000 equal parts or even 100 equal parts.. just might not be necessary to divide in advance.

Hey Mic, what kind of bearish contest are you running this time? Tongue

Looks like most everyone is trying to squeeze into the few remaining bearish slots.

I think that is a very positive signal though. Time will tell...
