Great name for a website for conspiracy theory drivel.

It teaches us that:  'Fake medical epidemics are unleashed by the powers that be...'

OK, the coverage might be over the top, the lethality is not known, sure...OK, jury's out - but to call this 'fake' and a false flag operation?

I didn't know there was such a thing as a pandemic-denier conspiracy theorist. I guess I just learned there is a new sort of paranoia to add to the sheer noise of nonsense to fill up Twitter with.  And calling it 'Chinese Coronavirus' is straight off Fox 'news'.  Or, as I think of it 'Be a doublethink drone' TV. 

But you may still be able to save yourself, if you stop and think.

Yes, the media may be overreacting (loving it even) but it is er... based on a real thing, sorry. You are just helping the people that write this shit to earn their crust with the clicks they generate by you disseminating it.  You are their product.

Go ahead, it's your right. Only this is unsubstantiated crap. I am afraid it is: Factually. Plain. Wrong.

C'on, Bitcoin dumped, it fucking sucks... just accept it like a man and don't invent silly excuses that mean fucking nothing! Tongue

Look how the same idiots start going full party when Bitcoin moons... wasn't it already 1BTC = 1BTC? C'on....

I "lost" a shitton of paper profits. There's no need to sugarcoat it. All this will pass when Bitcoin really moons.

let's differentiate into ppl which are invested with money they are able to lose and other ppl which are invested with money they need. the first group have the possibility to say 1 BTC is still 1 BTC after such a week and the others don't unfortunately.

 what we just witnessed never happened before in the history of crypto If I am not wrong.

lolwut?

I was talking about recession, pandemic, global market crash combined. Did it happen before? Did I miss it? Don't think so.

Good night, I am off.

Fair enough, I suppose in that sense it is true

to be clear, a drop like yesterday, while certainly dramatic, is nothing at all new for the OGs, go back and zoom in on some of the action after the $32 bubble

this what bitcoin do yo

The US-Treasury market is freezing up, even with a $1.5 trillion liquidity gusher from the Fed. CONfidence and trust that the fiat game is founded upon is evaporating.

I don't see any Bitcoin markets freezing up. And they run 24/7. The TRUSTLESS bitcoin network chugs along settling trades trustlessly just fine in times of absolute pandemonium.

In the not too distant future bitcoin may be the ONE OF THE FEW ways to securely transfer/settle funds around the globe.

Let that sink in a little.

It doesn't change the fact that saying 1BTC = 1BTC is still an obvious and completely empty statement. More so when they introduce it in the middle of a talk about actual price vs $. And repeating it every time Bitcoin dumps (surprisingly they don't say the same when it pumps) makes us look like fools.

The true meaning of this sentence is that if you are a true believer of Bitcoin you start thinking in Bitcoin and not in fiat.
When Bitcoin will be fully victorious over the FIAT Shitcoin, you won't change it back to Fiat.

So yes, fiat went up recently, don't worry. It is a rare occasion.
Fiat has been going down consistently over the last decade, so I can't understand how a very short lived fiat bull run can undermine the downtrend that started 10 years ago.
I strongly advise you to sell all your remaining Fiat as soon as possible!

***NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE*** Do not invest in fiat more than you can allow yourself to lose.

Bitcoin was never easy.

This has always been the price we pay, how we really earn what we will receive.

When they say: 'But you were just lucky getting in early - you didn't do anything to actually earn it'

You smile because you know they're wrong and they have no idea how tough it was to HODL; how it was a roller coaster of emotions for years - a real grind that took strength and belief, that only eventually paid off.

We will have earned every fucking penny.  And it was never, and will never be, easy. Or any idiot could do it.

if your last post was true, losing several millions in this turmoil, why make your partner work at all?



6-8 mil just ain't that much money man, you still work
You're completely right that it isn't that much money.

But if you wanted to you could live a very comfortable upper middle to upper class lifestyle without ever working again.

Move to an area that has appropriate costs of living and you can live off of fixed interest accounts throwing off $60~240k a year. Or $50~210k with a $1m home to cut out rent. There are plenty of very nice cities where $1m gets you a beautiful property and where $50~210k is a fortune when you don't have to pay rent.

Another: planB feels that btc stayed within the S2F bands, however, one may surmise that bitcoin cycle became erratic.
There is no more clear bull and bear, or rather bull and bear appear randomly and not really connected to the underlying halving cycles.
We went down to levels first encountered in September 2017, which is almost exactly where Sp500 went to (in terms of levels vs time).

TL;DR We seem to correlate more with the stock market than with gold/silver OR with halving expectations, at least for now.

thank you for the update. but please have in mind the world is facing a crisis like the financial crisis of 2007–08 and we have no historical data how BTCitcoin will behave in such a large crisis because it did not exist yet in 2007-08. it was in fact the result of that crisis.

EDIT: but you're right Satoshi invented it with the aim to protect ppl against such crisis if they are using it. so my knowledge is limited at the moment. time will tell if we leave the crisis behind and BTC will prosper again in the future. I hope it. but in fact that is a taff and real testcase for BTC.
It is no real test case right now simply because the liquidity is non-existent. The corn is still in its infancy.

The run to $1000 prepared the fields, the run to $20k planted the seeds. Right now we're watering them for the first time. When we dump to $100k we maybe might start harvesting the first crops.

@mindrust

You don’t need to go anywhere. Just put on your big boy pants & buy back at least half of what you sold. We all make mistakes.

I’ve spent over £60,000 on bitcoin in the last 12 months. If I spent that money when I first knew about bitcoin I’d have thousands of coins, I’d be a whale (I don’t & I’m not).

You have to make the best of any situation you’re in. You fucked up, admit it & buy back. Have a really nice holiday & do something with the rest of the fiat but buy back some at least.

I agree with LFC, take your loss like a man and buy back.

Bitcoin is a way out of the system.

If you need a reminder how the system is currently run just look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObgXtL2bD7k

So you are expecting Bitcoin to raise in price vs fiat long term but you still think saying 1BTC = 1BTC has some meaning?

I do think in BTC terms because I do care a lot about my personal BTC count which I always try to keep increasing... that's a number that have a lot of meaning for me. I also do care about how good my BTC is doing against other assets (like USD). That's another number I do care.

1 BTC being still equal to 1 BTC? I can give two shits about that.

Really I never understood what's the point of repeating that all the time.

Btw, 1 USD = 1 USD. So what?

Wouldn't it be better if we focus on differential advantages of Bitcoin as an asset class, store of value, currency or whatever instead of repeating the same nonsense shit that could be said about EVERYTHING?

I have had this inside of me without voicing it... I really don't care... But yeah, I have always thought that each time I read that phrase.... for years now. Some day I had to let it go out. Smiley

6-8 mil just ain't that much money man, you still work

Money is relative... I've worked with some very wealthy ppl that think they are poor and stressed about the future and I've seen the opposite.
Personally I can live in the mountains off the grid on next to nothing! An old timer I know very well lives off the land For a few hundred dollars a month.

This. I still live like a student and nobody knows how much I'm worth.

Small two room flat to separate work and leisure. The internet provides me with all the entertainment that I need. The only luxuries I partake in are my high-end desktop PC, Gigabit internet, and the occasional splurge on luxury food and scotch.

I'd rather leverage most of what I have into the future. Quite like the idea of funding research (nuclear fusion, rejuvenation etc.) should I somehow, God willing, end up with such sums. If not then at the very least I know that I'll never have to do anything that I don't want to for money while still being able to fulfill just about any material dream.

Banning short-selling always achieve the opposite of what is intended: it decreases liquidity and forms air-gaps under low-bid instruments, like small stocks or exotic ETFs.

I'm printing paper wallets on toilet paper now.

It's the virus times version of Casascius coins

But that only works if you have toilet paper on hand. If you're fresh out and you call around and find the nearest tissue paper is at a store hundreds or thousands of miles away, you can simply drive to a closer ATM and get several sheets to wipe. Here in the US, that may be 20 bucks per wipe, but you do what you got to do.
