So: topic swerve.
All y'all may recall I've been looking to Puerto Rico as a means of reducing capital gains taxes owed (I'm 'Merkin). But I've just learned of another (legitimate - according to IRS) potential route out of the system that may be as interesting:

Interesting. So essentially, I can sell all of my bitcoins and invest in something in some poor neighborhood. Then if I keep it 10 years I owe no tax.

But what could survive in a poor neighborhood that would be worth anything in 10 years? Gold store full of gold? Lambo dealership?

I seriously don't see anything in the US being as valuable in 10 years as keeping my bitcoins.

Maybe you just look down on those who attempt to engage in self-improvement BTC trading practices?  I try to share tips with folks, and yeah, I understand that it can be a bit overwhelming to attempt to employ something like I do, or some variation or even some variation that you attempt to tailor to your own situation.


What do you do?

Are you going to sell now at 8.000?
Did you bought at 5800 ?

I thought that most peeps here understand my methodology.

In brief, largely I am an incrementalist.  I buy on the way down, and I also dollar cost average buy, and I sell a small amount of the way up.  I sell between about 1% and 1.5% of my bitcoin stash for every 10% that the BTC price goes up, and I use a decent amount of the sales proceeds to buy back, in the event that the BTC price goes down.

I have been engaged in such incrementalism for almost 3 years.  In other words,  before October 2015, I was largely accumulating and dollar cost average buying... I also was establishing my initial BTC stake in 2014, and in a kind of maintenance during 2015, so if I ever sold any BTC for any reason, I would replace such BTC (and a bit more) quite quickly thereafter.

Currently, largely, I do not really change my practice by BIG price moves or make any BIG moves of my own.. so I am constantly selling on the way up and constantly buying as the price goes... I do tend to play around with the increments and the amounts based on how the BTC price is moving, but the amount that I authorize to buy or to sell is based on ongoing similar percentages that I authorize for myself and only tweak in small ways.  Regarding the actual price points of $8,000 and $5,800, yes I was buying all the way down.  Actually, I sold all the way up to $19666 and then I bought all the way back down and was largely prepared to keep buying , even if BTC prices were to go below $1k (which surely seems unlikely, currently).  Largely also I had been selling all the way up through the $6000s until reaching our $8000 of today.. so if the price goes above $8k I will continue to sell, and if the price goes below $7700 or something like that I will resume buying..

I’ve sold nothing for 3 years except the bitcoin I managed to get from free BCH.

You have bought more BTC in the last 3 years, though, correct?

If so, you are engaging in a kind of HODL and ACCUMULATL strategy that does not involve selling, right?

Although I like it, I feel like this turn around is a bit premature.

Sure, $5775 sucked. But I feel like we never hit that "zOMG THE WORLD IS ENDING!" couple of days that could have shaken out many weak hands.

Was it my awesome acting? Did that help?

Are we past the thought that Bitcoin could end?

I would rather the price rise on fundamentals rather than some stupid ETF.

Although I would consider putting all of my remaining retirement fund into an ETF so I guess there is a reason why people might think it is smart to get in before such a thing.

And if there is no ETF? Bitcoin user not affected?

How much more "fundamental" can you get than institutional adoption of bitcoin as a store of value ?  Huh

Most likely we get a small retrace and then a final push up at the end of July/start of August. Depending on the strength of the push, it will be down again to $5,xxx or a small dip towards bigger numbers above $10k. If the former, it would be an excellent opportunity to go FIAT for a while while the real bear plays out towards December 2018.

Somehow, I lean to the former scenario. But the price action will continue to tell the story onwards. Be flexible in your thinking.

Some parts align with my thoughts of Bitcoin up until somewhere August, and down towards in September.
