You know, that login captcha really tests me sometimes.

I often start to wonder, "Well could I be a robot and not know it?"

Wouldn't be surprised if we sideways between $8-9k all summer.

https://www.coindesk.com/short-ether-bitcoin-says-citrons-andrew-left/

"I Would Short Ether Before Bitcoin", Says Citron's Andrew Left

I've been wondering why someone has been buying truckloads of ETH at gemini's auction for weeks now. This could be the answer, a HUGE ETH short position coming. Especially if the SEC rules that ETH is in fact a security.

Also Andrew Left is a tool.

I also have a hard time solving captchas sometimes. It is reaching ridiculous levels. Soon it will be above human "processing" ability and only a new generation of very specialized bots will be able to solve them. Ironic, isn't it?

I think it is too soon to figure out what price range we would be at summer. OTOH, this struggling below $10K is exactly how we all supposed it would be when reaching this levels for the first time instead of the cut-through-$10K-as-if-it-were-butter we experienced in december.
We always thought $10K would be a MAJOR resistance/psycological price point, didn't we?

What are those Gemini auctions? OTC? How do you get those figures?

I wonder if ETH would be considered a security... would that apply to ETC too or it would make for some kind of flippening between the two? I mean, would it be a security because it was initially ICO'ed -then ETC also was- or would it be because of all the ICO's that have been launched from ETH?



So it does look like I am not the only one who thought about it. What other reason there would be for ETC rising alone now?
You... you quoted yourself in agreement.

Also, I fail to see why someone would buy loads of ETH to short it. I can't see a way for that to be profitable. You can't short your own position and make money.

Why is btrash doing so well ?
Probably because of the upcoming fork.

Bigger blocks is a good thing. The problem is that they are being deceptive cunts. If we had chosen big blocks and they had chosen segwit, we would still think the same thing about them, and for the same reason. And be applauding ourselves for making the correct choice.

It's the people, not the tech.

Bigger blocks are a bandaid. I was all for 2x when we needed the capacity. It is not a scaling solution. Its for people who spend 10 minutes researching crypto and think they're geniuses.

I'm not saying BTC doesn't need to eventually move over to larger blocks, but I support their slower, safer, forward-thinking, incremental approach to things.

BCH is just fucking retards running around in a China Shop, breaking and buying everything in sight, because they have more money than brains.

It's shameful, amateurish behavior, and it's fucking with BTC-proper.
I'm not convinced that segwit was the better choice. In general, doing something in a simple way is better than doing it in a complicated way. But it is what we have now.

Those little dumps below 10K are very healthy for the next bitcoin ups.

Support this time: 9200$

We are not going below 9200$.

Yeah, it makes total sense I do agree with myself, doesn't it?

Now seriously, I quoted it because I posted it several days ago before ETC started to pump and that's the reason I guess some people also thought the same. Or maybe it's just a random pump... who knows.

About the shorting ETH thing... well, that's how pump and dumps work.... some people pump it from point A, then more people FOMO in and keep raising the price to point B or C. Now the initial pumpers dump (or short) on the later.. profit! At least theoretically.

Segwit is working. LN is working. Transaction confirmation times are low, and fees are the lowest they've been in a long time. On LN they are non-existent. And the whole solution is supporting decentralization in the best way possible.

And yet people STILL want to bitch and find something wrong with the solution. And still bring up the block size shit like it even matters right now.

I'm so tired of the bullshit and I will call out anyone who brings that tired argument up again.

Sorry BCash shilling fucktards, but your goose is cooked. You lost. It's over. In fact, BCash never stood a chance. It was DOA.

I'll grant that Core's approach to scaling is slower than Cash's, but it certainly ain't safer.

Not if you look at it from the perspective of shitcoin shills trying to force a centralized, non-fungible, permissioned ledger, cashless society slave system onto humanity when physical silver and gold are already a superior system in the first place.  But TERA IS A NOOB and doesn't understand things like this.

It's necessary. Just a matter of when.

Here is my 2 satoshi for what it's worth:

Block size, if handled correctly, will end up having nothing to do with scaling and everything to do with regulating compensation for miners. If miners are not being given enough incentive to provide sufficient security to the blockchain than blocks are too big, if the opposite is the case than blocks are too small. Scaling will have to come from second layer solutions. Some transactions will always need to be on chain, the value that people place on putting transactions on chain needs to be enough to compensate the miners, and in the absence of the ability to regulate demand, the only alternative is to regulate the supply of on chain space inorder to increase its price to the level necessary to accomplish this.

I actually started to pull out my private keys to start dumping BCH but realized I'm traveling and I don't have the full set of keys available. Oh well, will wait for the next pump.
