It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

OT : "Let's get rid of quarterly earnings reports"

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/17/trump-pushes-for-an-end-to-quarterly-earnings-reports.html

What a great idea! In fact, let's get rid of all profit reporting all together! I mean, it's not like they're hiding shit with 'creative accounting' and stock buybacks every quarter, every year. And the stock prices are so overblown and out of whack with P/E anyway... so who cares. The traders certainly don't give a shit. Amiright??

I think that August-September will be the bloodiest months. Probably, we will find the bottom. Perhaps in September there will be a small pamp, after which, if not hold back, then let's go even lower. October-November, in my opinion, will bring the market a revival, news from Wall Street may flood in on an event that will be the basis for a new bull market, as it was in the spring of 2017, when Japan legalized the crypto currency. By the end of the year, I expect signs of recovery from the market, where bitcoin can trade in the range of 9-12 thousand.

If in October-November there is no powerful event from Wall Street, which will raise the market from the bottom, then bitcoin can go well below $ 5 thousand, and the entire crypto market can hang out in the outset, close to zero and in the first half of 2019, and further restoration will begin. The question is when exactly growth begins - in autumn or in spring. It seems to me more likely that this will happen in the fall.

Dietary carbohydrate intake and mortality: a prospective cohort study and meta-analysis
https://www.bbc.com/news/health-45195474
Low-carb diets could shorten life, study suggests

Unpopular study getting little love from bitcoin carnivore types.
(The research is pretty shoddy)

eg https://twitter.com/shillycrypto/status/1029707201726828546
Also the FDA recommended diet / food pyramid are already proven by nutritionists to be terrible. Too much carbs, not enough fat / protein. There's science behind carnivory, it's not just a contrarian thing.



I am personally an advocate of a moderately low carb lifestyle.  I went from 215lbs to 165 (I am 5'11").  I typically stay in ketosis.  So I eat VERY little refined carbohydrates, starches, or sugar.  And I have been doing it for nearly 2 years.  I probably average somewhere between 20-90 non fiber grams of carbs in a day.

So I eat TONS of fresh vegetables.  TONS.  My diet is veggies and meat.

Still, I find the "Bitcoin carnivory" thing to be a little odd.  It seems fairly extreme, and a bit tribal in it's manifestation.  

I suppose I am a bitcoin carnivore, in the same way I am a bitcoin maximalist. Wink  I eat tons of meat, but I also eat tons of green vegetables.  I believe in bitcoin fundamentally, and shun nearly all alt coins, but I am a fairly big believer in Monero. Smiley

Moderation in most things?

Losing Money Without Losing Your Edge | Peter Brandt Mental Game of Trading
Quote
Peter explains some of the common mental pitfalls that can commonly affect traders. He explains how to deal with painful drawdowns, opens up about his own worst losing period, and reveals what it took for him to get back into the black.

Hes had drawdowns as much as 37%. AHAHAHA amateur Cheesy. I draw down 37% on a good day!

Yep. 37% is a joke. BTC'ers hodled thru -90% , twice.   Some alt holders hodled thru -98% and one or two even came good after that!

It's funny too cuz in that same video he actually talks about us crypto investors. Says that we are all hopped up on too much success too fast. That we have never felt real loss. I'm just like buddy you have NO idea. Cheesy I don't think there are any investors in the history of the world who have learned to keep a level head through losses like crypto hodlers.

Here's a serious bear case. Personally I don't see how we could slide through the 2020 halving without a pump somewhere outside of 6 months of it.

Hmm. Seems the 'serious bear case' being discussed is taking 6 years (instead of 2 years) to get to $100K/BTC. In my book, that's not particularly bearish.

I actually think he has some valid points, most particularly this:

Quote from: LearningSlowly.co
Let's say Bitcoin remains relatively stable for a few years vs the USD and its role as a ‘stablecoin’ becomes the new, incorrect media narrative. Krugman starts to say it’s becoming a better currency because of this. Traditional markets climb higher and an ETF fails to drive retail and institutional demand.

With the advent of shorting Bitcoin, we must always remember that any rise in the price of BTC can be countered by the pressure of getting shorted, which I believe will very likely keep Bitcoin's growth curve shallow, which would have the added "benefit" as he says, of getting a reputation as a "stable" currency.

So a gradual upward s-curve chart is likely ahead for BTC, most likely precipitated by deep pockets taking advantage of small rises to first buy, then sell BTC for a profit, and if upward momentum slows, taking on large shorting positions to cash in on pullbacks.

Retirement-Anecdote: So, I checked up on the retirement portfolio I set in motion with "my people", funded by the BTC/Fiat sales I made in January.

Deferring payments to me by one year has worked out fantastically so far, even in this "blasé" market.

At this rate, my payments will start end of Q1 2019, and won't even start eating into the principle (Have not yet accounted for tax obligations, so that's gonna take some wind out of muh sails)

If I die early, I'm going to haunt the shit out of Rick. Concern increasing that honey is gonna smother me in my sleep one of these days.

Dude is getting pretty fucking morose and stressed out lately. Makes me sad. His company stock price has been giving it to him harder than I have, and they've started withholding more taxes on bonus and stock payouts as well, so he's concerned about not being able to meet his retirement goals over the next year.

Come on, Bitcorn. Hit $20k already, so Rick and I live happily ever after. OK ?

Also, a fucking bird crapped on my soft-top this morning when I went to get coffee. What a disgusting mess.

Sheeit.

Guess I'll wash my car later, but first I think I'm going to record some source materials. Got some really weird and interesting microphones in I want to play with today.

Retail and institutional demand are quite unnecessary, and shorters will eventually lose out, because the supply is limited.
It will take a very few enlightened people to snap up the remaining coins.

Bitcoin was flying up to 20k at a time when the fundamentals were concerning. Strife in the community. A bitcoin convention that couldn't be paid for in bitcoin. A credible fork attack. Uncertainty around whether scaling would ever be achieved. Now we are in a market where the fundamentals are infinitely more reassuring. The chinko-ver fork attack is relatively settled and they have lost. We now have a some what tested path to scaling. Things are looking brighter as the price is looking dimmer. This says to me that all that is needed to win out in this market is patience. Which, lucky for me, is like the only virtue I don't lack!
