bitcoin is on top as the most sound of the monies/assets

I hope you do not actually believe this.  

Of course, I believe it in the context in which I wrote it and as a contemporary statement.  If things change, then I will reconsider my thoughts about the topic.

The "bitcoin as an infectious disease model" is correct.  
I don't know what that is supposed to mean.   Bitcoin only has less than 1% of world adoption, so it could hardly be very "infectious", yet.  In the future, perhaps?

Marcus saw it and immediately got upset because he knew it was legit.  

Marcus seems to be a pretty smart member.  i am sure that he continues to study and assess bitcoin rather than just coming to an early conclusion (without thought - as you seem to suggest) and sticking with it based on a wish, as you seem to suggest.

There's a certain percentage of the population who is susceptible to the scam, then others who are completely immune.  

Fair enough..   So far, it seems that a lot of them have been getting sucked into alt coins.. but we are a long way from any significant portion of the world's population getting involved in any of this crypto stuff, whether we are referring to bitcoin or alt coins.

There will be no neverending 45 degree angle of adoption/growth because that's not how diseases work.  Disease outbreaks come in and hit whoever they're going to hit fast and that's it.

Even if you characterize this matter as a negative, it seems that your recognition of a growth curve, here, seems to show that you should be prudent with your own investment(s) and take some kind of stake in some of this hype (whether it is well founded or not from your perspective).

Look at the comment section of many of these Youtube videos.  The amount of people who don't like bitcoin and refuse to touch it because they know it's a trojan horse to a cashless society slave system is enormous.  

Who gives a ratt's ass about the multitude of misinformation and stupid ass comments from paid shills and probably others who don't have a clue about what they are talking about?

They have no intention of giving up the human right of physical money, nor do they want all their transactions tracked and monitored like an Orwellian system on steroids, then have their account balance turned off by the state because transaction validators are designed to centralize and can easily blacklist you (just as Aaron Russo predicted).

Sounds like you are engaged in a lot of fantastical thinking, here.

'Acceptability' is one of the main components of money, and an enormous percentage of the population boycotts this garbage because they know the endgame of shitcoins is a huge negative to human freedom.  

What the fuck you talking about?  Of course, people invest into ideas or assets based on the present and future utility of them, yet so far,  like I already mentioned (and you likely understand this too) there are NOT that many people involved in crypto or bitcoin, so these systems take a long time to develop.  You are being stupid-ass myopic if you are attempting to capture some kind of current sentiment from some select misinformed group and then locking them into such stupid perspective for your own wishful propaganda purposes.  You really seem to be mischaracterizing what motivates people on a more fundamental level and that may have to do with their information about some asset, such as bitcoin, and then figuring out the extent to which it might currently fit in their lives.. and if they currently conclude that bitcoin does not fit our work for them, they can still reconsider the matter 1yr, 3yrs, 5yrs, 10yrs or some other time frame down the road when there are more systems and more development and likely when bitcoin is a much higher price per unit, whether we are talking about bitcoins, satoshis, some other unit in between or perhaps at some point we may be going into sub-satoshis, even though that might be much more than 10 years from now... even though there is already some subsatoshi transactions occurring on the lightning network, from my understanding... 

It's 100% guaranteed to be completely centralized and controlled by the state in the end

Nothing is 100% guaranteed, you numb nut, except perhaps death and taxes?  hahahahahaha

- an exact replica of the Chinese social credit score system, ushering in a new age of unfathomable horror.  

Make retarded and exaggerated comments, and who the fuck is going to pay attention to you?

You need to be just stark raving retarded to support craptocurrency over physical metals once you realize the inevitable endgame.

Don't be so stupid, and we have already gone over some of the possible unlikely Armageddon scenarios in which physical metals might possibly be practical for usage or even for storage of value.  Get into the modern world, because it remains quite impractical also for storage costs and portability and divisibility and even the quick clarifications that can be made about authenticity or supply manipulation when it comes to PMs as compared with bitcoin.  Get a grip with your dumbass nonsensical repetitions.

This place is turning into a shithole.

Time to move on i guess.

It's always been a bit that way - I mean a combination of topics - relevant and irrelevant - so what else is new?  

You don't have to join the hat club (consider V8 - which is a decent position, too), and seems that we will likely get back on topic, especially once the BTC price starts moving up and the shills come in to tell us that other coins are better.. .blah blah blah.. you know the drill?

And where else you gonna go?  Is there some other largely bitcoin maximalist thread that does not get crossed referenced here as long as that thread lasts (which is not going to come close to the longevity of this thread)?

 I need avatars though.  Some guys are in campaigns, some avatars I can't find in a larger size... like Capslock's or Yefi's...


You could bodge it and use blurred enlarged avatar images like this one.

I don't see any connection either way.  Certainly when bitcoin was $2, it was just geeks mining and a few people taking punt.  Big money didn't get involved until 2013 at the earliest, since then technical has been far more important than fundamentals.

Well, in 2013 the U.S. stock market went on a massive bull run/rally, peaked in Dec 2013, then went sharply bear in Jan 2014.

So did the Bitcoin market.

Then in 2017 the U.S. stock market went on a massive bull run/rally, peaked in Dec 2017, then went sharply bear in Jan 2018.

So did the Bitcoin market.

If you can't see that direct correlation, then I can't help you man. It's all about long money vs. short money, and smart money vs. dumb.

I would agree with you on technicals though, as the Bitcoin fundamentals haven't changed since 2012 so they don't really matter. I don't really consider SW and LN as a huge change to the fundamentals, as the utility and SoV function has been there all along.
you made me look at the charts for gringo stock market and you seem to be quite wrong

Exactly.... most of the correlation, to the extent that it could exist in some kind of way, is coincidental, more than anything.

Bitcoin is a quite different asset class, and so immature that it is going to take a long while for the correlation dynamics (to the extent that they might exist short term) to get worked out.

When an asset, such as bitcoin, is in the very early stages of adoption and likely at the bottom of the hockey stick, you are not going to find too many assets in that same stage of development and adoption.

Technicals work on the short term and looking in retrospect, but with bitcoin you also have to consider the fundamentals that continue to keep the underlying hockey stick that sometimes is difficult to see in the short term and while we are in the midst of it... but the fundamentals are going to drive the technicals beyond the little categories and boxes in which they try to short term predict bitcoin's imminent downfall that never seems to actually happen because of the underlying and unseen hockey stick - that only some peeps can appreciate such invisible hockey stick for being present.    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Bodge a hat?! Homer's no bodger, the man needs to be given quality material to work with. That's like giving a blacksmith iron ingots and wanting daedric armour in return.

A while back, there was the idea being thrown around of a WO Vegas party to celebrate $100K.  Instead, we could all just meet up wearing our avatar hats and drop acid. What could go wrong?

Several whiles back in 2013, there was a highly anticipated $1k party planned here. I could not attend, it sounds like it fell through.

Good to see a (very) few of the guest-list still here, though. I guess the original potential attendees got rich, and faded away. I miss rpietila, perhaps he just faded away. I did not know him, and I know others had problems with him.

All you know and love, The fundamental building blocks you are made of, are popping in and out of existence all the time. Can you imagine that? Sometimes you exist, sometimes you don't. In fact, the entire universe just popped into existence. It should have popped out again, but for some reason we don't know yet, there was an imbalance between matter and antimatter. Matter and antimatter should have canceled each other out. But here we are, living in a world that is expanding faster and faster. What happens when the expansion starts slowing down? Or stops? You are the universe observing itself and asking these questions.


OK I am freaking out. Gunna go clean the bathroom. When you guys drop acid do your fingertips get cold too?



What was before the universe popped into existence? Where did the matter and dark matter come from? Can there be life made of dark matter, where matter is the "mysterious" one? I doubt things are really over with us expanding into oblivion, where protons, neutrons and electrons never meet again, there might be just a new start, maybe in a totally different way. I also doubt that water only is the single source of life like mainstream science suggests, there might be endless possibilities. One thing is for sure, universe is full of life. Brain goes on fire thinking of that subject, guess it's too much to cope with.

The whole body seems to get a bit colder when dropping acid, that might be just due to overall rise in sensitivity. Good to know there are some other psychonauts around here Smiley

The heads in this forum united together on acid? It might be even more revolutionary than Bitcoin itself. The hats would probably give an extra brain boost Cheesy

 ...and this one looks like a trip
