Below is a copy of my earlier attempt at a response to the matter (although my nested response is directed at birr, it is also intended for Rosewater, and I am not sure if he read it), and in essence I am saying that reverse dollar cost averaging is stupid.

Sure you can sell a chunk of BTC if you are nervous about whatever situation you have gotten yourself into, but you need to go back to the strategy of buying on the way down and selling on the way up because it does not work to attempt dollar cost averaging the other way around... and sure, sometimes when in doubt an alternative plan (especially in BTC) would just be to HODLCRAEFULly through the situation.



But what you are arguing there is that it is basically a wrong idea to exit low. Which we all agree. But he was especifically asking if it was better to exit (now) in a single trade or to dollar cost average the exit. The intention to exit was thus a premise in his question.

Here is one time that I will concede (it does not happen very often) that the wordiness of my response may have caused a loss of the thrust of what I was attempting to say.

Pretty much I was attempting to say that if you believe that you have fucked up, and you want to feel comfortable because you believe the price is going to go down, then you should figure out a way to sell a chunk that will cause you to become more comfortable, and then continue with a strategy of buying on the way down and selling on the way up (and that would not be dollar cost average selling on the way down because that makes little fucking sense in light of the more grande principle that calls for buying on the way down and selling on the way up).

I understand the premise and intention of his question, and I think that the strategy goes against the overall principle that I would be advocating.

Of course, we are kind of mixing two principles here, because dollar cost averaging does not really have anything to do with price, and dollar cost averaging is a time thing... so following a pure dollar cost averaging strategy would be to just buy or sell an exact amount (perhaps once a week) no matter what the price was at that time, and I am not opposed to that kind of strategy; however, the way that Rosewater was using the term, he seem to be referring to selling an incremental amount on the way down (irrespective of time), and just to be clear and repetitive, I think that is a stupid and even a strategy that is contrary to MORE GRAND principles to buy on the way down and sell on the way up.   

As such, it is better to do it averaging the exit for exactly the same reasons it is good to average the entry.


For reasons already outlined above, I don't think so.

I also suggested an alternative way which is scalping the volatility for liquidity (you basically assume downtrend and act accordingly in the staggered trades using the volatility to get an additional profit ie: sell double on each daily pump and buy half on each daily dip). But it all depends on the deadline someone has to complete the full exit.

Actually, you are describing a little bit different of a principle, and I cannot really disagree with this kind of mitigation/compromise strategy because you can tailor such an approach to make the downside less painful than it might otherwise be, and thereby cause you better downside protections because you are attempting to ensure that you are not selling at the absolute bottom... so I agree with that kind of attempt at mitigating damages to the best of your ability (that kind of is hoping that the bottom is close to being in).

Satoshi vision conference ?

Is there any evidence AT ALL that satoshi's vision was to "scale" bitcoin by cramming more and more transactions into blocks until the point where full node operators need to open a data center and purchase a T1 line? Where the hell does ver get this crap about this being "satoshi's vision"?
...that has nothing to do with the number of transactions.

Can you be more specific? What has nothing to do with the number of transactions?
The number of transactions has nothing to do with the choice to build a data center.

ooooookkkkkk. You are off on a different planet buddy.
Open source. We know how it works. Have known from the start.

You are the one making an assertion here. In what way does the number of transactions force miners into data centers?

  It might help this discussion to note that full node miner

Now I feel as though there will be IRS agents infiltrating our party.  I suggest we have to sign a message with our posted addresses to gain entry.  Maybe r0ach can guard the door to keep the riff raff out Grin

And worse than the IRS, possibly. It will be a meetup of very rich peeps, remember: one million dollars will be just 10 BTC.

I think the details (place, time, reservations) should only be discussed in a private board. Invitation-only private. And yes, it would be appropriate to have some state of the art crypto verification at the door - like signing a message with the right key. No joke.

didn't read the whole thing but depents on witch kind of booze .... there are some pricey bottles of booze on the market Wink

 
 Seriously - I'll throw 0.5 BTC for libations towards the $100k party. 0.5 BTC == 0.5 BTC after-all, right ? I'm playing with that much for my Lightning nodes, so it seems fair to "blow the other 0.5 on crazy party shit" - to my mind.


Already making more promises? But this one's for really reals right?

hahahahaha ... this guy is really the typical dinosaur in serious denial about the comet .. hey Prabhu, 2013 called and it wants it's FUD back.



this other FUD about the shoeshine boy quote is being deceptively used out of context also ... in 1928 the shoeshine boy myth was created by Joe Kennedy (prez's dad) to articulate that everybody was all-in, including the shoeshine boy and that is what he used to mark the top.

In bitcoin the shoeshine boy (do they even exist anymore since EBT cards?) is talking bitcoin because he's a man on the gritty streets who has scored something questionable with it and the top tiers don't want to even talk about bitcoin in polite company (you can't shut them up about overbought stocks, bonds and real estate) ... it's nothing like the "everybody all-in at the top" talk ... it's just some dumb FUD pablum they are feeding the feeble minded chatterboxes in the lamestream to spread around and keep the masses from stirring.

Go long on the shoeshine boy!

For reals. I can happily make that commitment while maintaining my anonymity. In theory.

In all seriousness, I think the idea of having a "$100k Party" is a great, but I doubt I would attend for personal reasons (Mostly, I hate meatspace, that it seems like it'd be an OpSec nightmare - Would not feel comfortable partying with people while I'm packing two pistols, for example)

I would need to be "on guard" all evening. We'd need massive security measures to seriously contemplate a party like that.

I agree with the idea of needing to sign a message from a pre-established address, with an arbitrary phrase given at the door, to gain entrance.

@birr... The first part of your discussion of dollar cost averaging lends some insight to the practice because you are indicating that there is something wrong with employing an opposite strategy... however, then your suggestion largely devolves into a kind of recommendation of a reverse dollar cost average strategy.

NO matter if you are in a BTC accumulation stage, or a maintenance stage or a liquidation stage, your strategy should be to attempt to sell BTC on the way up and to buy BTC on the way down.  Of course the more you are on one spectrum or another remains a personal choice but it also effects how you may employ the strategy.  So for example, if you are in a BTC accumulation stage you might buy more on dips and perhaps sell less on rises because your goal is accumulation, but that should not cause you to sell on the way down or buy on the way up.

Usually, if some one who is employing a sell on the way up and buy on the way down is panicking because they screwed up and did not sell enough, so the strategy probably would be to attempt to make up for the screw up by selling a decent sized chunk and then returning to the strategy of buying if the price goes down with the proceeds that were generated from the sale.

Continuing to sell on the way down or creating a plan that continues to sell on the way down is not a good strategy nor is it equally good as buying on the way down... and perhaps making and emergency sell because of a screw up and then maybe even going back to HODL, if not feeling comfortable enough to buying on the way down.

Someone just bought 1 million USD worth of BTC. And another guy sold half million USD worth of BTC. Insane.

Edit: For anyone who wasn't following the live feed: someone bought ~4K BTC at market price and then left a 3.7k bid wall at 130. Then a minute later someone just swallowed that wall in one take
