Dear fellows,

I as "erre" was here from 2013. I was a regular lurker of this thread and a relatively rare poster here, but I think someone could remember me for the bet with proudhon or for some other shitposting. I have some emotional bond with this forum, despite the very low overall quality.

In May 2018 my account was hacked. I have full proof of ownership according to the rules and more, but after an initial response from Cyrus I was not able to make any more contact with him or Theymos.

I made a thread in meta (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3652698.new#new) which was locked a little time ago, so I made another thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5065918.0), but I'm really getting demotivated now and I rarely post because I feel uncomfortable without my "skin" and my story.

I know that there are a lot of influent/known members writing and lurking here, so since the price is going sideways and there are no walls to observe I really hope that someone could spend some of his time helping me, I need to drag some admin's attention.

Thank you

erre

Yes, I remember you. I also remember when your account was hacked and I helped you locate your old messages with posted signature. I thought you would have recovered it long ago, since everything looked ok (signature verified ok).

Now I am rereading the "recovery" thread and am surprised by this:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3652698.msg44512640#msg44512640

If someone of the "weight" of hilariousetc can't make it get done I don't know who could (besides Theymos and Cyrus themselves). He seems to be speaking quite frankly when he says no accounts are being recovered lately even when meeting all requirements. Which is bummer to say the least.

Maybe someone else can shed some more light over what could be done here or someone that has had success in recovering his account recently?


Thank you and all the others for the responses. I think that they just don't bother, what piss me off is that Cyrus initially responded, and asked: "are you still in possession on the original email?" and I replied "yes". Like 20 times. For months.

What can I do to have some attention from admins? I think that hi-rank mods should have a way to contact them other then PMs, or maybe somebody knows them in real life or some other circuit... I even thought to sue the forum or ddos them, but unfortunately btc didn't made me so rich (still). I didn't even spam, because I think it's useless, but I don't want to give up.

If you ever had a Bitcoin address associated with your account you can always sign a message with that key as proof.

He did, it matched. It seems no accounts are being recovered since before the summer even if you follow the procedure. Bummer.

My plan was to sell half at 100K and let the rest ride. Do you have a sell target for your long-term stash?

Nice round number. But it might be prudent to choose a number that's not too round. To beat the crowd, you know... I bet lots of people think selling the day we hit 100K.

Before JJG comes back I will state the obvious: It's better to go selling in a laddered manner, ie: Beginning in small quantities from ie. below $50K all the way up.. maybe even rebuying some at the customary dips on the road.

Would be a shame if price stopped short of $99K before the next bear market without having sold shit.

But I guess infofront already knows that and was just setting some theoretical milestone for being half fiat half Bitcoin.

I am mostly sure it will take more than one bull run and subsequent bear markets to reach $100K. So better prepare for that too.

I agree with you both. In the last bull run, I just sat back and HEDL. In the next one, I'll try laddered sells when we go parabolic. If I end up with less than my target amount, I'd try to buy on the way down and increase my stash.

I mentioned this in a post a few days ago, but let's say, for example, your target is to have 5 bitcoins that you hold from $10k to $100k (something like that), instead, you buy 6 BTC and then you have a bit extra BTC that you won't feel any kind of emotional attachment when you end up getting rid of it - because it was extra.  Of course, you can use whatever ratio makes you feel comfortable, and surely you have to be careful NOT to end up engaging in sloppy personal finances because you chose to invest 20% or so more than your original plan...   So, for example, you want to make sure that you have all the essentials covered including living expenses, including entertainment and an emergency fund.. but maybe you cut back on going out to eat, so instead of going out three times a week, you only go out two.. or some other overspending that you might be able to relatively comfortably divert into bitcoin.... another example might be that you buy a new car every few years, to buy a toyota instead of a lexus or instead buy a car that is 3 years old rather than a new one.. just to consider as a temporary measure that is deferred gratification and does not really affect you in any kind of meaningful negative way.

Just remember...when selling you get hit with tax consequences (in the US).

So selling a big chunk is not the best strategy (unless you're just in it for the fiat and supporting your benevolent government with more money).

Personally I was able to retire and I can pull out $35k of my bitcoin every year tax free. I don't have to work the rest of my life.

To me that seemed a bit more important than anything I could cash out and buy.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg47666946#msg47666946

I don’t have anything against JJG at all, he’s pro bitcoin & to me that makes him alright. I just can not read through his walls of text at times.

His grave head stone will say -

Here lies JJG
TL ; DR

I have similar feelings.  I hardly ever read my own stuff, and if I ever hear myself on a recording, I become repulsed.

On the other hand, I do tend to look at myself in the mirror, except if there is someone more handsome nearby.. then I will tend to look at the more handsome fella.. while admittedly attempting a compare / contrast.  If there happens to be a handsome fella and a decently looking chick, I will gravitate towards the chick, unless the guy happens to look a lot better.

Surely there is something off about that comparison because there was not really any kind of flat period in 2014 that resembles the flat period in 2018.  Accordingly, in 2018, BTC prices reached down to sub $6k in early February, and so have been largely holding for 9 months.

2014.. held upper $300s for only a few months, and then capitulated down to mid-to-lower $200s and then bounced around in the mid-$200s for about 8 months before there was a kind of realization that there was no more ability to get the "bad boy" down (and stay down) below $220-ish...

Ever tried to to think twice before posting and try to condense your post in less words and explanations? I mean, most of us here are not (completely) retarded and can perfectly understand things with a smaller wall of text.... and/or ask for additional clarification otherwise.

In fact I have seen you being perfectly capable of doing that in some posts (just like that one above)... so I am inclined to think you do it on purpose because you like peeps complaining about it, you fucking attention whore! Wink
