Who appointed the United States and its institutions to supervise Bitcoin?

Many or even most governments likely feel that they do not need an invitation, so there is that angle, too.

This was not unexpected:

Thanks, AlcoHoDL.

Thanks Jay, for your long (as always [saying this in a good way]), but thorough and merit-worthy reply, I appreciate it.

We are in agreement, and there's no need (for me) to reiterate what you already know.

Since we are posting in a public thread, sometimes as a courtesy, we (royal) do post some of topical matters in more detail than necessary for the benefit of others... so a little repetition tends to play out from time to time for those of us willing to bear such repetitions...

Of course, there are quite a few regular WO peeps who I have pretty decent confidence (faith) that do "get it" but every once in a while we witness surprises, too... mindrust.. cough, cough.. .. and also, face-melting BTC price moves or even long-ass periods of seeming irrational BTC price performances, sometimes can cause a few of us to enter locations closer to our psychological limits than we would prefer to acknowledge.

Just to clarify, my above highlighted text (in green) was not directed at your quoted long reply, but rather, it was meant to explain my very short reply to it (i.e., I don't need to reply in detail, since we are in agreement). Your reply was long (as always [saying this in a good way]), but well-written, and would deserve a longer answer, but I'm just far too busy with RL matters, so I just wanted to tell you not to take my short reply the wrong way...

No problem.. .Thanks for the clarification.. I did not take any of it in any kind of personal way..

As you likely realize, I will frequently find almost any excuse to rant about some random idea that I may be thinking and may not even have had anything to do with the original post...

Yes, ... also, RL obligations.   I can relate... ... I mentioned previously that I had been going over some of my security issues and even some matters related to passing on coins, in case something were to happen to me.  These kinds of matters can take a lot of time - and also reveal various compromises that happen along the way and even ways that security could be improved - if willing to put in a wee bit more efforts (that may or may not happen). 

I have found that whenever I spend some time to go through the process, then some of the security matters will end up improving through such process, though.  It's like having some kinds of security procedures, and if you you go through the process, at least, you remember what the process is, so that if certain kinds of shit does hit the fan, at least you have recently gone through the process (perhaps to be better prepared to deal with the shit hits the fan situation).

@JJG

I don’t think Bitmex-gate is going to affect us too much. I’m still thinking that we moon in 2021, there is perhaps a chance that covid could stop us going as high as we would have but yeah, I still think we moon next year.


Now Now  LFC, the times of ATH are long gone Smiley , reminiscence of 2017 and keep it close to the heart Tongue

If it is not something that can be done safely in an unregulated market, then maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in an unregulated market.  Don’t try to create the clusterfork of the bank-run financial markets in Bitcoin.

Thus concluded a post which began, with large boldface in the original:

Who appointed the United States and its institutions to supervise Bitcoin?
Bigger and bolder type  he is your answer:

Trump

If that is all that you got out of what I wrote, well...



You fancy that Bank-Owned Megalomaniac Biden (Diet Pepsi, (D)) be better than Bank-Owned Megalomaniac Trump (Coca-Cola, (R))?  (Or to others:  Vice versa?)  Protip:  They are both Americans.  They would both happily firebomb the whole world to smouldering rubble at the drop of a hat—or regulate Bitcoin into another bankster playground—or do whatever else the owners of the United States may desire.


Oh, this needs for me to pause from spending too much forum time in WO, and finish that thing that I have been intending to toss into P&S.  Meanwhile:

Universal suffrage is vote inflation.  Making everybody “free” by giving everybody a vote is like making everybody “rich” by printing lots of money.

Yes, that is an original observation on my part.  Analogy credit: nullius.

[...]

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

btc pre Trump inauguration Jan 2017 = 895 usd
btc post Trump inauguration Oct 2020 = 10,700 usd

btc ath    dec 2017 = 20,000 usd

looks like btc has thrived under Trumps administration

If I were to tell you Trump enacted the China tax for one reason only to restrict mining gear exportations would you think I know what I am talking about.

Or just be witty and clever.

There is a major play going on with BTC and it is being driven by Trump and China and Russia hand and hand and behind the scenes.

Did you ever watch USA wresting.

The Rock vs Kurt Angle vs The Undertaker

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5gxlu0

That is USA vs China vs Russia

Vince McMahon is Trump and as we all know. He is the one making the money Wink

Mark my words when Trump gets reelected BTC will soar to 3x the old ATH

and lots of coins will be confiscated by USA + CHINA +  RUSSIA

He should have stayed in a country that is a bit less a puppet of the US.

Hard to find one these days... China, Russia, Iran... quality of life might suck.

Even so, eventually he'll get tired and decide to take a vacation on some tropical island, the plane lands, and FBI agents surprise him there with the handcuffs.

I suggested Cuba, it's already a tropical island, they like dollars without letting the US in, I'm sure some people there like BTC too...

God, he's looking even worse. Last saw him about 5-6 year ago and he looked bad then. Poor guy, aging well is a valuable thing in life.

Actually for a 74 year old who habitually does lines and drinks like a fish, you would think he would look a lot worse.

Also hilarious that he got paid in BTC for pumping shitcoins.  Cheesy

For every dollar that goes into crypto the price rises $20-$25**. The millennial generation is poised to inherit $7T and they like crypto as an investment.

Research by @fundstrat.

** Estimated in 2018, it varies between market phases, higher in a bull market.

Fundamental buy pressure from new HODLers is undeniable right now. But for short term traders, sell walling on derivative and spot exchanges shows whales are in price suppression mode. It may whipsaw randomly a bit, but the long game will win.
