You're right. Making money is a great feat to achieve. However I see it from a wider view. 'Some' kind of a correction was long overdue. I don't expect a quick and nice recovery. There will be blood, there was always blood. And that's nothind bad, right ? Could go down where it hurts, low 30s? high 20s? Still, a number that would never affect a bitcoin OG, however the noobs get slaughtered, rightfully so. A few more dead-cat bounces because the playing field is set. And the field showed the 40s already. Selling now would be the stupidest move, and we know it.

I couldn't agree more.

A correction was long overdue... And selling now would be stupidest move. What is important is that we will make a new low in this bull run. Bitcoin is not going to 5k anymore, like a year ago.

The last ATH (20k) is probably too low to be our floor.

Umm...what fairyland world does the electricity for a Tesla come from?

At least I don't have to follow through on buying a Tesla with bitcoin. Screw buying a car for more than $100k.

I gotta say... I respect his commitment to his ideals.  An entire army of oldschool bitcoiners were starting to replace "Wen Lambo" with "Wen Tesla", and he just told them to go fuck themselves.

I am sort of being facetious, of course.  But I will arrogantly point out that when they put Bitcoin on the site and everyone was asking "Will you be buying a Tesla now?", I held my tongue.  For lot's of reasons, no small one being it takes more than a token gesture to earn my respect. 

But today proves Musk is more interested in token gestures than anything else.

I am taking him on his word, I guess...  I am not looking at this through any conspiracy theory lens.  I figure he really does miss the point of Bitcoin, like so many others...

Richest man in the world, yes.  Aspergers?  I suppose so.  Smartest man in the world?  Not by a LONGSHOT.  He's a storyteller.

And he buys his own shit.  Good for him.

My stance is: Today's move is artificial. It has nothing to do with the physics of market forces and lots to do with the quantum mechanics of a few entities interacting on a high level of power/funding.

Remember me asking "How much would it cost to take the price down to 50k?" ?
I was trying to gauge the minimum required size for an entity that could pull off something like the stunt we just saw.

Wow what a move. And of course I was buying before that ah ah. Fortunately I had decided to buy over 30 days, so I'm buying that dip and we'll see how it goes.

As for Teslas I can get a TM3 SR+ for 300€ a month no downpayment (paid by a government incentive), or 36000€ cash, including 20% VAT, for the car it is it's a bargain, I'm very tempted. Didn't consider using BTC to buy/lease it for one second, though.

Hm, that doesn't make much sense. Me thinks there is another issue going on, wonder what it is.

The solution to bitcoin using too much electricity is simple: Raise the price of electricity. Price goes up fewer people mine, network is still way way way way way over secure. The other solution is time: Another halving or two and less miners will be around. Still plenty to secure the network, and people can use it for transactions.

Yawn.

Chinese mining is done with lots of hydro isn't it ? Hydro that isn't even connected to the grid so gets wasted otherwise.

Yhea, big boy's buying cheap coins while weak hands running to the exit door. Classic move that happend many time before.

That energy FUD is going to abysmal, while more than 70% is renewable energy and is beeing used to secure the network but n00bs are not interested in security at all, that really boggles my mind.

1 year still looking good, it reached rock bottom.

Today I leveled ground and set up an outdoor pool. I had to rush to shut off the water at my wife's business because of a leak. My dog got caught up in the dog-next-door's lead and I had to rescue her. My back started hurting and I worked through it. I have blisters on my hand. The sink blocked up. My son got an "owie" on his hand and daddy fixed it and the richest man in the world took a dump in my portfolio.

I'm currently drinking gin & twist-up and I feel fine.

My wife just told me that CNN has been dissing Tesla for energy usage. Is Musk's tweet today somehow related to that?

(Note I'm receiving that about third-hand so take it for what it is).

Hah, wow. I was never a morning lark, always a night owl. Getting up to be at work at 8am was *hard*. But now I'm effectively retired, I get up a couple of hours later tops and can't reach the 1-3pm wake times I was capable of in my prime.

I have a feeling that the total number of Teslas bought with Bitcoin == 0.

I think this is one of those "you can't fire me, I quit" scenarios. Musk was expecting a bunch of people to roll in with their Bitcoin and nobody came to the party.

I've seen companies first add and then drop accepting Bitcoin for years. It seems more of a hype they are running after rather than clever financial tactics for themselves or customers.

Many of those companies were selling lower-cost items. Once fees started rising, that stopped making sense. That's apparently OK here so whatever. However, something the cost of a tesla, the fees are still insignificant so it's a fairly reasonable purchase.

As mentioned above, I think Musk just wasn't seeing the interest he was looking for so took his ball and went home.



Same. 3-4am is nearer my bed time than wakeup time.

Nothing like hearing the birds start singing and the light outside the window brightening toward the end of a long coding session. Haven't done that in a while.

I'll likely own an electric car one day in the future. In another 10 years or so, when the tech has matured. But I can pretty much guarantee that it won't be a Tesla.

All of the pre-existing automotive companies will be able to produce them not only better, but more reliable.

Tesla will have to pivot completely away from making cars. They don't make any money on them anyway.
