So I guess people believe that as long as a crypto is secure, scales, has a good wallet, can run a node, and runs on good hardware, then....

....it really doesn't NEED TO HAVE ANY PURPOSE FOR EXISTING BEYOND THOSE THINGS TO BE A SUCCESS??

Where did you pick up that thought?

I was very crazy not so long ago. I have changed a lot too. Life is much easier this way.

Well, yes.

I thought about some of these dynamics too.

Many years ago, when I was 18, and just barely leaving my parent's house, I did not own many assets, and by the time I acquired some education and life experiences, it took me well more than 10 to 15 years to rise out of the negative networth territory.

There are probably other factors, as well, that contribute to willingness to take risks, but I do understand that building wealth takes time, and having a larger stake in the system will cause incentives for less risk taking - especially when facing someone (on the street or otherwise) who appears to NOT have anything to lose by getting in a confrontation (even life or death). 

Of course, previously, we have had this conversation youth or wealth, and it is not like we have any kind of choice to be able to make ourselves more youthful, so there remains some satisfaction to have more wealth - even though I did not really seek wealth in my life pursuits, it has been nice that my life choices still arrived at some semblance of such, including what is currently (remains of) my bitcoin investment.

ive been told i am just as crazy risking my life for fun now as i was in my youth. so ive been told by multiple people. the only thing that tempers me from doing it as much is i need to stay alive for my wife.

but still the urge is still there, and very strong. the risks are not vs people, ie putting myself in combat zones, riots or whatever. they are "hold muh beer" types of thing, usually involving machinery that can be forced to do things it was not manufactured to do. the brain starts thinking "i can make that" and i really really have to hold back.

but the grin factor and the rush of still being alive afterwards.. oh man

You sound like one of those guys who builds a spaceship in his backyard.

Im nowhere on the centralised trustles default pseudo trustlist (2nd layer)

my name is mud Sad




I don't know how it exactly works, but I have you in my white trustbox if that is worth anything Roll Eyes

yeah, the whole "trust" thing seems very opaque to me

I did add FlensGold to my white box as he is the one member that ever had the opportunity to steal from me and didn't.

when someone has a clear chance of stealing, and does not steal.... yeah that earns trust
 

Credit where it is due but... except people behaviour may change depending on the circumstances. Never forget that.

Never trust anyone that have nothing to lose and much to gain by cheating you.

Don't trust, verify.

P.S.: Also, the fact that someone is trustable doesn't mean his criteria about other people trust may be correct. In fact it is usually the contrary.

Yuh I'm dead impressed gentlemand didn't run off to Southend with Arriemoller's £1.60 +p&p. He could have settled with a gypsy woman and rubbed crystal balls while she cackled. But no, he did a trustworthy thing that one time.

i mainly carry a handgun in the woods and thats what i would be firing in the air as a warning shot for the wild dogs and such. and even though i know its miles of woods i think i will at least consider trying to fire into a tree from now on. its just habit to never, ever fire a round with no real target as if i miss the tree that bullet can go a long way. and while there should be no one in my woods.. still..
Fire in front of the dog.

that would have very good odds of seriously hurting it via ricochet/spall, and hurting it is worse than killing it.

i have no wish to harm any animal, much less kill it. if it looks ready to attack, fine, dead dog. but if its pondering the situation ("hmm.. is that thing good to eat?") scaring it off is fine by me. scaring and hurting it via spall so it suffers is not.

Last year I was a millionaire (in dollars).

means that you had (or perhaps have?) more than 53 (in bitcoins)

Last year I was a millionaire (in dollars).

And Maybe now a more inceased position in BTC?
Better BE

Grin
Not much Mic, not as planned.
I had quite a few unexpected expenses that required some fiat money that then I was not able to re-acquire and re-invest.
I am good anyway since with the current prices I should have a bit more time  Wink

That's too bad.

If attempting to accumulate, meaning that you have a longer timeline, and you are not in withdrawal mode (such as retirement or near death) a goal should be to have more BTC on the second time we reach $19k than we had the first time that we reached $19k. 

Does not mean, necessarily, that we will be successful in achieving the goal, but it remains a good goal to have.

Where did you pick up that thought?

Because guys here that want to spout how great XRP, ETH, and other shitcoins are, cannot tell me what purpose for existing they have TODAY? That serves a valid use case, one that adds real world value? Or one that can even be monetized?

Maybe that's where I picked up that thought?

Let's go down the rabbit hole of debate, shall we. Let's dispel the delusion.

Bitcoin bottomed around 0400 hours GMT on 14 January 2015.  

We are now past that time in this cycle.  If the fractal holds, we have bottomed.  

I just bought again. 

I agree with your conclusion, but on one minor point, the absolute bottom of the cycle was the probably the low on Dec 15 (3122 on Stamp).  That said if the Jan 14th proves to be the lowest point this year, you are correct in the thrust of what you say - that the turning point has been reached. It was certainly the point to look out for and pass by.

I do agree with you, as you know and am glad to see your (superior) TA-based analysis confirms my own feelings and crude trend calculations.  I have also been buying, cancelling my low-ball bids and transferring in all available fiat to mop up what I can before the end of Jan.

It will not be significantly profitable in the short term, although I do think going over 10K before the end of this year is actually very possible (by early November, to stick my neck out).

All this is based on rough overlays of 2015 to now, which have thus far proved sufficiently close to be worth betting on.  November '15 saw a spike up to over 3x the January low that year, but it was a choppy ride to there, see charts for details.

I doubt we will see an exact overlay, as if it gets any closer it will be front run, or disrupted.  But so far...?   

DYOR.

Overlays seem dangerous, but I am glad it is working out for you, so far.

Shitcoins' purpose is to distract attention and other resources from bitcoin, under the guise of being different or better or complementary. They're ok at it.
