https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/28903508/pistons-christian-wood-tests-positive-coronavirus

The NBA had every player in their league tested. Thats 300 players. 3 came back positive.

It a small sample but this is about the size of many presidential polls.

These were all people who appeared perfectly healthy at the time. Even Rudy Gobert, the first one tested, woke up Wed. feeling fine and ready to play a game. He had been feeling mildly sick for two days prior.

You see now what happens when healthy feeling celebrities start getting tested in mass. Tom Hanks, his wife, three NBA players and the first lady of Canada all have it. They all feel fine with little to zero symptoms. Amazing what happens when you dont only test people on deaths door.

300 NBA players showed a 1 percent infection rate. These people have not left the country, they all were in the middle of playing season when this started.

Wouldnt surprise me if 1 percent of the U.S. population is infected. Lets just say for some crazy reason an NBA player is 10 times more likely to catch Coronavirus than the average American. That would still imply we have 32,700 actual Coronavirus infections in the U.S. and only 61 deaths.

That would imply a .18 percent infection mortality rate. A bit less deadly than the Swine Flu.

Yes a bit more out of the 32700 infected could die, but its crazy anyway to assume that an NBA player is 10 times more likely to catch it than a regular person.

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?



1 USD= 1USD
sure.
Do you know the meme of the emptying cart, this well explain that even if 1 USD has always been equal to 1 USD, the true value (something similar to purchasing power) has been going down since inception (or 1971 at least).

So once again,
saying 1BTC=1BTC you are implying your numera ire, your basic unit of account,  is the BTC, not the dollar.

Your numeraire, your store of wealth, is the BTC, not the USD.
You are not investing USD in BTC (and price is going up).
You are investing BTC in USD (and price is going down, hence, don't hold in USD more than you are willing to lose).

When you increase your Bitcoin account you are not buying  BTC! You are selling USD!

This is, to me, the true meaning of this sentence.




I do understand what they think they mean... it is just that it is nonsense.

You now say 1 USD = 1 USD (because that's not arguable) but also say, as if it was a differential advantage of BTC, that the "true value" of USD has been going down. Great... because that's exactly what I mean when also BTC "true" value has come down... as in past days dump. In both cases, it doesn't mean anything if 1USD=1USD or 1BTC=1BTC. Also, something that obvious (it's a fucking equal not even a function) doesn't need to be repeated as if it were gonna change anytime soon. It won't. I know 1BTC will always be 1BTC.... no matter what that implies.

Also, when I do increase my BTC count 1BTC=1BTC... but look, when i do sell my BTC... 1 BTC still is equal to 1BTC! Wow! Magic!

The supermarket cart, OTOH, is a *GREAT* example/moto to use. 1BTC=1BTC is lame.

I guess we can agree to disagree on this one. I will never think it is a good slogan/moto to use when talking about BTC... much less during a dump. It sounds like the typical loser statement to me. As in... "the important thing is to participate, not to win"... Yeah, right.

Anyways... wake me up when 1BTC != 1BTC. That will be really interesting.


Your frustration regarding some of those kinds of talking points come off as completely justified to me, bitserve.

I have similar frustrations with the converting 100% to BTC crowd, and some of the hoopla to suggest that everyone should just be 100% in BTC and only use BTC for everything blah blah blah.

I don't really have any problems with attempting to advocate increased BTC liquidation avenues, yet the reality of the current matter remains our living in a fiat dominated world, so ultimately the value of BTC remains a floating currency relative to fiat, and the circumstances of BTC holders will also vary depending on whether they earn money in fiat or BTC and also how much value they need to pay for all their various living expenses, including how those are billed.

And surely many governments have not exactly facilitated clarity in terms of spending BTC... those fucks..... so besides the volatility risk of going back and forth between BTC and fiat, there remain potential accounting burdens.  And, ain't nobody got time for dat.

In any way that BTC HODLers are attempting to accumulate value, they likely going to need to account for dollar value of the assets from time to time.. whether it is merely to ground themselves into a kind of reality or it is a way to figure out whether it would be in their interest(s) to engage in some reallocation attempts.

Sure BTC could become dominant in several ways, but for the next 100 years, it is quite likely that there are going to be other assets and currencies that are going to need to be measured relative to bitcoin, and even if BTC were to become the one and only asset/currency that remains valuable, it is not like we can eat the shit, so it is still going to be measured in terms of goods and services and sure other kinds of things of value that might also be labeled as currencies or assets or collectibles.

For example, how many years will it take for the value of 1 BTC to equal the one hour services of 13.5 hookers,  the purchase of two brand spanking new mid-line lambos, and 69 helpings of blow?  Might take a few years before we reach that level of purchasing power... so you better fucking buy back some BTC, mindrust, if you want to hang with a few of the WO boyz (and girl) who have actually reached the superfluous level of double digit BTC!!!!!!!!!    Angry Angry Angry Angry

Today is the first day in like 2 years my nocoiner friend mentioned BTC and that he'd like to buy because he heard "it dropped 50%"  Grin Bullish!  Cool

Wow. Most people of that ilk think either 'it's ded' or 'it'll go lower' and then buy 5 minutes before the peak several years later.

Your man sounds like he was born to it.

When i picked up the kids at school today (which is closing down for at least two weeks now) i heard other parents talk about investing in bitcoin, because the price sunk $1000 (...) "No, it's even down $2000! ...", "Then i'm gonna buy for sure now!" ... (and so on). I didn't join the talk, but what i really heard from it was:

"Bitcoin is low, i'm gonna catch the falling knife"
"Bitcoin is even lower, i'm finally buy the blood and become a coiner"

So i guess that BTC will tank even lower after the rise from $4.x cools off.
Many people gonna loose their newly invested money to the whales, at least to some good percentage.
I'll wait for it. I can still buy on the way up until about $6.5k if i'm totally wrong.
My final word (opinion): Bitcoin will go lower before the slow rise to next ATH. When i look at all the pumps after 04/2019, i'd say the bottom could be somewhere between $3 and $3.5k.


You sound a bit too bearish, out of memory.  After a quickie 63% correction, it is likely better to be betting on up rather than down.. although I know that you are not shorting.. but you are hesitating to buy, and I suppose that is not really bad.. it is just seeming a bit overly pessimistic.

Good morning!

Yeah, i might sound too bearish because of the $3k - $3.5k range, but i will buy at higher prices too without much loss (or much less gain, if you want to see it that way).
I'm easy with holding out and waiting, in times of uncertainty i refuse to make moves, because this has brought negative results in the past, mostly.


Fair enough response OOm, but I still believe that some additional clarification should be warranted, here.

Your post had come off as a bit pessimistic to me because you seem to be asserting that we have gone into a more bearish posture, which I believe is NOT completely convincing, because I am having difficulties conceding that this particular market has gone back into bear mode, even though the correction had gotten pretty damned severe..  but we have to see, yet, if the price is going to recover, or if we are going to significantly fall out of line with our current dominant BTC price prediction models of 1) stock to flow, 2) four year fractal and 3) s-curve exponential growth based on networking/metcalfe effects.

So, yeah if we linger down in these sub $6k prices for any kind of significant time, then maybe we might need to start to worry a bit... perhaps?

Otherwise, any of us should be considering if we are still in BTC accumulation stage or if we are in maintenance or liquidation stage.

If any guy had been in accumulation stage that involves DCA and buying on dips, then I don't see any reason to stop in those behaviors, even if you might have to adjust because your cashflow only comes in so rapidly.. so it takes a while to generate more cash if you already used it for both your DCA purchase and your buying on dip purchase.

I am having doubts about whether I should need to go into more detail here, with examples and such because maybe I would be going into overkill mode, but each of us should figure out where we are at and anyone in accumulation mode that employs DCA and buying on dip should be continuing with such.. but of course, such practice might partly be suspended because of a need to wait for MOAR monies to come in  through whatever are the normal cashflow channels.

I (shamed to admit it) capitulated at £3660 on Thursday night and liquidated 0.4 BTC for £1500. Sadly, I needed to make sure I had the money to pay a bill. I use BTC as my overall savings account with very little in my actual bank account other than general operating costs and some on exchanges to play with. It means I lost about 0.03 BTC / £150 in real terms. I had been buying bits and pieces during the crash  - then panicked and sold at a loss.

I am the master of capitulation. I did it at $280 and I’m sure I’ll do it again. This is a sign we can go up now!


Thanks for sharing, no shame really. I'm also similarly positioned using bitcoin as my 100% savings. The only difference is that I don't need the capital I've allocated for any reason in the short term (except in emergency). I have a somewhat reliable income stream I can reasonably live from.
If you'll entertain, its a great lesson really.  Is your investments in Bitcoin to help bitcoin evolve or for some other reason?
Other reasons get complicated very easily as I'm sure you are aware and as Bitcoin stands it's ground, it will claim the advantage over unaltruistic investments.

A most prudent means to attempt to maximize bitcoin investment and savings is NOT to put 100% into it... because then when you need value for $ expenses, then you are fucked... you have to sell at the wrong time.

So of course it remains prudent to figure out your cash flow in such a way that you are neither having to cash out bitcoin at a time that is NOT at your own choosing and you have enough cash to support your various $ expenses.

Sure, from time to time, there could be shortages, but there should also be diligent efforts made to avoid those kinds of mistakes, especially with such a volatile asset, such as our lil fiend known as king daddy.

Now everyone will stay at their homes in the hope that things get under control asap and maybe there won't be needed an extension of the full lockdown after this 15 days pass.

Hi bitserve, to do it well, apart from closing bars, restaurants, gyms, cinemas, restaurants, yesterday, when the alert plan was announced, and the president said that "everyone stays at home", it is useless.
If you force a part of the country to shut yourself up at home, but the president says:

That people can go to their jobs on Monday, the contagion will inevitably continue to increase, he is stupid.

Spain as always, making a fool of itself due to its political leaders.

I hope that we can overcome this crisis without reaching extreme situations.

The real question is who benefits from all this, and why.

Why?
To me this is a big drill.
A big drill to check how their models work in reality, and how the general population responds to it.
Also they now know, that they can lock down the world or a nation, just with the "you're safer this way" narrative.

Overall, I like your plan.  

The only supplemental suggestions that I would make is that 1) you consider NOT getting so caught up on round numbers or solely a BTC long term strategy that involves only buying BTC on the dip and limiting your entry points and 2) you consider some flexibility on your 6-8 month shaving off of profits plan..  

In other words, I would suggest that create a plan to periodically invest in bitcoin, no matter what the price... (aka DCA) such as $100 per month.... or some other amount that you conclude to be both reasonable and an amount that you will not miss in the event that bitcoin were to go to shit...
 
Even $10 could be reasonable, though since you already have accumulated more than a whole bitcoin, I conjecture that you could reasonably afford much more than $10 per month for such DCA efforts (and not even miss it... the price of two fancy coffees).

Regarding your plan to shave off some profits at 6 months after the halvening, sure that might be a good plan.. but BTC price growth periods of the last couple of halvenings took well over a year to play out and arguably each of them took in the ballpark of 18months after the halvening to really show their stuff.. so you may be selling yourself quite short with such a short 6 month window, and really do you believe $2k is going to make you feel better?  sure, maybe it will, but maybe it would make you feel even moar better if that $2k ends up being in the $10k to $20k region in 5-10 years .. which seems to be a way better investment horizon for someone who is just getting in with a bit more than 1 BTC currently.

Thanks for those suggestions and ideas.
The time of 6 to 8 months was just a guess really. I won't take 2k out until btc is at 20k. I will get use this 2k for a couple of alt projects that I was told are promising. I wish to buy my own apartment or home, renting is ok for my age but I would prefer to get a cheap house or apartment to work on.
Several times when bitcoin crashes hard it then reverses and reaches new ATH. I appreciate that the virus is a bit of a black swan.
I follow some of the things my older brother mentioned. He is quite a success ( for our family)and does spend some effort in helping me with useful advice. He told me he was trading some of his bitcoins and the news cadge that silk road was busted. He incorrectly panicked and sold the majority of his holdings. I think it was for around 60 dollars each or something that seems unthinkable now.

He said that he kept waiting to get back in near his exit price, but the price went crazy.  Soon it was over 1000 USD. He said he was angry for panicking, and was angry at himself for willing and hoping for bitcoin to crash again each time the media talked about it going higher in value . He never got back in for 60.  Even now his mood can darken if the subject comes up. Since then told me never sell.  He has accumulated quite a few again by weaving in and out with no more than 10% at a time. He also does not spend on latest phone, car , and these things like before. Every spare dollar is invested in bitcoin, bullion or home improvement. I intended to do as you mention put all spare money each month and put some in bitcoin and other opportunities.
I am rather greedy with getting maximum gains
( now I Have something I really want like to own a house of my own) and impulsive which can lead me to gamble. I was even upset to have entered at just under 5k rather than 3.8k although I know it is still a superb entry that at one point I would have been very grateful for.
I will soon forget this when bitcoin is 20k.

Thanks Icygreen as well for the welcome. Now that I know I will be targeted with crossbow projectiles,  I will keep the retired police vest that should repel or prevent the penetrstion required to destroy vital organs.  Grin

It sounds as if you are, at least, trying to learn from your experiences and even the mistakes of others, as well as identifying some problem areas that you have, which is maybe an inclination to gamble too much from time to time.

Many people take 20-30 or more years to establish a really decently-sized investment portfolio, and sometimes they do not even reach any kind of decently-sized investment portfolio because they make a lot of mistakes in terms of sometimes gambling too much or failing to capitalize sufficiently or even consuming way too much too soon.

If you are able to figure out a way to use bitcoin to your advantage and even to be able to cut down the time that it takes to build a decently sized investment portfolio, then that will give you a lot of options.

Sometimes you cannot really rush building capital, but once you achieve certain levels of capital, then it can become somewhat easier (at least having more options available) to get your capital to work for you, but it still takes time and continues to take effort NOT to relapse into taking too many chances and putting your capital at too much risk.. so capital preservation continues to be a solid and valid skill that people tend to learn when they are more successful with their investments. 

I look forward to your continued contributions or even letting us know how matters are going for you, and hopefully you will not need to break any OpSec in order to share... sometimes we can also talk in terms of strategies without giving away too much information regarding amounts or other information that might be too personal.
