Lol man, told ya just recently, we are somehow connected obviously (no homo of course, haha) - even when you are not a big drinker, unlike me, lol. Gotta love wine! Greek wine is of course underrated, bad marketing (general problem with Greece actually ^^) - anyone needs suggestions, just hit me up Cheesy

yeah, Armageddon has about a 1% chance of happening, so don't fuck up your whole life and your ability to retire because you put way the fuck disproportionate preparation into that... like 20% or even 50% like some people seem to be inclined in those kinds of ways to prepare for holy shit not going to happen events - and I am NOT sure if that is just a means to talk themselves out of actually pulling the fuck you lever when they really should (but yeah, ultimately their discretion, and the above remain just factors to consider rather than trying to tell anyone what to do with their ultimate conclusions regarding what is important to them).

I don't really disagree with any of what you said, including the unquoted parts. But having seen the medical issues destroy people's finances more than once, in my personal list of things it's on my list of "it's comin' down the pike" rather than "small chance Armageddon scenario", so as you point out each person has that different list of factors they consider at various priorities.

I totally get that some might see the large numbers and say "fuck it" instead of saving now, hopefully few to none on here, but I just consider it a journey. If I end up there great, if not, well I tried and will continually evaluate my options with regard to whatever curve balls life is throwing at me or likely to throw at me at the time.

I doubt that we are really saying anything different from one another, except maybe delving into the weeds a bit with a kind of particular scenario.  There is a lot fucked up in the USA regarding health care... that is for sure.  There are also likely way too many people in the USA who get wiped out financially by various medical issues that come up, so yeah, something like that might have higher odds of happening or becoming an issue than people credit (take into their accounts/contemplations), and of course, for you particularly, you might have to over-prepare in order to be feel that you are sufficiently comfortable, but you also might end up shooting yourself in the foot because you ended up over-preparing. 

I surely don't know the solution because you are referring to a real world issue that has a whole hell of a lot of significance in the USA, and more dire circumstances for some people rather than others in terms of how much insurance needs to be within the budget or if there is already a pre-existing condition and also whether they might be ready, willing or able to travel for treatment (which traveling surely might not be very practical for some people to have to consider traveling for medical treatment).

Breaking News:U.S. Congress proposes that Crypto transactions below $200 shall be free from taxes!.

Quote
139 G.Gain from disposition of virtual currency

(a)In general
Gross income of an individual shall not include gain, by reason of changes in exchange rates, from the disposition of virtual currency in a personal transaction (as such term is defined in section 988(e)). The preceding sentence shall not apply if the gain which would otherwise be recognized on the transaction exceeds $200.

(b)Virtual currency
For purposes of this section, the term virtual currency means a digital representation of value that is used as a medium of exchange and is not otherwise currency under section 988.

pdf



That would be great if that goes through.  I have made a few small purchases that have been annoying to keep track of (esp. cost basis for coins, I use FIFO accounting).  The larger purchases (gold) I kept careful track of because they were larger transactions.

Tiny purchases with BTC should be tax-free, the man-hours of doing the accounting are maddening.

Zhao in response to Peter Schiff’s negative comments about bitcoin & forgetting his wallet passphrase.




@cz_binance
1. This is probably 0.01 btc someone gave him as a gift.

2. The thread is entertaining due to the hopelessly illogical-ness.

3/5. It is amazing someone so illogical can attract that many followers. I guess there are multiple reasons one can become famous.

@cz_binance
4. Finally understood why he likes gold over bitcoin. Gold doesn’t have a password.

5. Unless, of course, if he uses a vault with a password to store the gold...

I’d like to see something similar passed in the UK.

I don’t think it’s fair I’ll have to pay up to 20% capital gains tax on an investment that I mostly bought in 2014-15.

In Germany there is 0% capital gains tax on assets that you have HODLED for over 12 months.

I’ll figure a way around it, I’ve been playing the system in business for years.

Well, we do get a 12 grand or so tax free allowance per year which could be worse and covers some spending. I didn't realise the American rate was zero from the off which is nuts.

Capital gains is not one of those taxes that the average voter pays or gives a shit about so I can well imagine it'll rise at some point. It's a pretty soft target. And it would've been 90 billion per cent had Labour gotten in.

I’m really not happy at the thought of paying 20%, that sucks man. Why should I pay so much money when the majority of my coins were bought for so little.

The government does not deserve to take so much from us.

It is what it is. I priced it in from the off. And it can be much, much worse in other places. Ireland's 33% I think.

If I change my mind I have my eyes on this palace - https://www.rightmove.co.uk/overseas-property/property-88276847.html?currencyCode=GBP  but need to get my skates on before going abroad results in gammons stoning you to death.

even if congress passes it (I doubt it), POTUS would surely veto it (on advise of Sec Treas).

yea, in US it is similar (up to 20%) on longer term cap gains. 10% would have been more decent, but, whatever.
Brits have one up on us with all that offshoring business. No such thing (except weird Puerto Rico situation) for US citizens.
IF you love that future extra 15-20% so much that you want to live in PR at least 183 days/year, then...
I won't.

I refuse to move anywhere sweaty. And though I don't know how sweaty it is there it's certainly close enough to other places filled with people sweating to raise my suspicions to Defcon 1.

I could buy a rotating army of small Filipinos to sit in fridges and then run out and press themselves against me until they warm up, but I think I'd rather stay put and incur a bit more expense.
