Anyone who has time to complain about wealth inequality doesn't really deserve moving upwards in the food chain, as they could've invested the same time on figuring out sensible goals for their life as well as some steps towards them.

QFT.

What he said.

Stupid post.  There's probably legions of 120+ IQ people in Japan working two jobs 90 hours a week, making jack shit for money and barely getting by.  And this is one of the most egalitarian countries on earth.  Working hard, being smart, or being productive does not mean you will be rewarded for it.  

Shitcoins are a great example.  I consider all digital shitcoins a scam and only physical metals as money, but most people here believe Bitcoin is legit, just the other shitcoins like Ethereum are a scam.  Welp, hate to break it to you, but the pump and dump scam known as Ethereum created far more profit for people than just about anything else.  Other complete bullshit like "Tron" too.  Most people will agree that physical metals are a hell of a lot better investment than "Tron", but are metals holders being rewarded lately?  Nope.  But "Tron" holders are driving lambos.

The entire economic system is so broken that you need to make the wrong decisions on purpose to make money.  The whole thing needs to be burned to the ground.  Work hard to get an engineering degree in Canada?  You'll have something like a 20% chance of employment. Be an absolutely useless woman and create an instagram and patreon account?  Make $150k a year.  I have no idea exactly where this money comes from, but it's common.  At this point, dropping out of middle school and becoming a white rapper would probably be more productive than going to college.

BIS chief Agustín Carstens: Bitcoin must depart from PoW.

I like how bankers starting to sweat they know Bitcoin will eat their lunch  Smiley

https://cointelegraph.com/news/major-central-bank-institution-bis-bitcoin-must-depart-from-proof-of-work

I experience a churning of my stomach when I see non-sense like that.  It is a sign of desperation, like you are suggesting, and it there is a kind of "holy cow" regarding the level of misinformation that is presented by the underlying assertion.

Some folks don't realize that the "holy shit" of bitcoin is wrapped up in its proof of work, so proof of work is a feature, not a bug.  Proof of work causes bitcoin incentive, and like you suggested, paashaas, will continue to generate incentives that cause the downfall of the whole financial system, causing value to flow into bitcoin.  The audacity of the article seems to show that there are many traditional financial incumbents who will be willing to battle quite strenuously to spread their nonsense about bitcoin supposedly being flawed, when in fact they are pointing out central features.. namely POW in this case.

By the way, bitcoin is stubborn and very difficult to change, too, and that remains as a feature rather than a bug to defend against misinformation campaigns that try to get bitcoin to become paypal-like, so stop whining about how stubborn and "inefficient" bitcoin is you fucking bank shill bitcoin naysayers.   Tongue Tongue    Cheesy Cheesy

terse

What if they used the time, then figured out the solutions and then realized every one of those solutions would get them killed so decided to just sit back and complain until someone else finds a better solution that doesn't get them killed?

I can't even figure out what you are getting at. Working on life will get you killed? I guess in some sense. In the long run, we're all dead.

Life is hard. Buck up, bucko - or get lapped by those willing to put in the work.

To be fair, the deck is stacked pretty badly.

Even some pretty intelligent folks decide it's not really worth playing.

In conditions of true institutionalized inequality, revolution is pulling yourself up by your bootstraps.

@ roach, you really have nothing in your arguments regarding BTC fungibility vs PM's. Your claims are pure speculation that certain addresses will be blacklisted where miners won't touch it. That has not happened and it's not even close. Until an address or transaction is muted on the main chain or LN you're just spouting  your own conspiracy theory Armageddon fears.
Regarding middlemen/ transaction validators:
I've personally been taxed many times after arriving in airports carrying non personal PM's. If I try to hide them or refuse to pay the tax, my physical PM's get confiscated.  It's not possible to carry significant amounts of PM's abroad unless you figure out how to smuggle them in. There's just one example of a realized middleman for your physical PM's.
Today's commerce largely does not happen face to face with physical exchange and if I'm willing to travel to the merchant who is in another country, how will I avoid such middlemen. Do you suppose I should simply pay the tax on my PM's every time I fly?
Dystopia is believing we will all go back to carrying chunks of metal in our pockets again.
Since you want to fight this "war" and you seem capable enough to articulate, please tell, what future would you have for money if it were to unfold to your liking?

put this as well as our presence here in the context of MMT (modern monetary theory).
as debt does not exist, it is replaced by large taxation to avoid inflation escape at a large scale.
all the "small phenomenons" remaining all around have to be controlled.

Life is hard. Buck up, bucko - or get lapped by those willing to put in the work.

I dated a girl for a number of years.

Her father was wealthy and powerful.  He owned 25+ houses that he rented out.  He was also a drunk and highly abusive.

The mother eventually divorced him after a series of domestic violence incidents.  The father decided to make the mother's life a living hell.   He hired lawyers to sue the mother for everything under the sun, stalked the mother and tried to destroy her friendship networks.  This went on for five years.  

The mother grew deeply depressed and semi suicidal.  My girlfriend and her sister at the age of 8 had to get the mother out of bed in the morning, get her dressed so the mother could drive them to school.  Some days they couldn't get their mother out of bed so they missed school.  

My girlfriend was incredibly smart and motivated but she missed a lot of school during that five year period.  It affected her grades and she had to work hard to try to catch up.  She also had the mental load of trying to parent her own mother through the divorce and aftermath.  There is no doubt in my mind if she had had a normal, stable childhood, she would have been a surgeon or rocket scientist.  Instead she will likely never achieve her full potential.  

Let's not kid ourselves that everyone has equality of opportunity.  Because they don't.

Anyone who wants can have all the money they need. Not necessarily as much as they want, which is where the people who do nothing but complain come from. All it takes is the choice. And some people choose to complain instead of improving their situation. It's usually not IQ 120 people who make this latter choice.

Don't ask for life to be fair. Ask for life to be worth it.

Your GF can achieve whatever the fuck she wants to achieve. All that stuff you mentioned is just an excuse. Would she have been different or had another path if none of that would have happened. Sure, perhaps. But life isn't fucking fair for anyone who has ever lived. That is it's very nature. Once we free ourselves from being "victims" of circumstances then the sky is truly the limit.

WTF are you talking about?

Is there a point you are trying to make? Has something held you back in life? Is that your excuse?  Do yourself a favor and don't make excuses for yourself or others. Lets hold ourselves accountable. Life works SO MUCH better than way.

He's trying to explain to the dumbasses you are that saying something as stupid as "if you have time to complain you don't deserve to go up" that maybe, JUST MAYBE, there is a more systematic problem and that success is absolutely not linked to hardwork.

Shut the fuck up and get your head out of your ass.

Anyone saying that success is linked to hardwork deserves to be let alone in any third world country to see how their hardwork will be rewarded. Or in any poor family in any Western country.

Really? Compared to what?

I think you are probably not as patient as you think.


Only need to give it another year or two.

I would not be surprised to see this year end at similar levels to today (possibly with a dip in between). I still think a low in the 1000's is possible.

Back into HODLsleep .....
good night WO’s

Edit: thx to cAPSLOCK and LFC whiteout you Guys I wouldn’t be able of sending a merit for this effort (of giving the thread Some real colour during boringness of BTC) Wink

Btw: it seems you’re a younger couple as well (hope both coiners) Wink

I have to fess up.  My other half is a bit younger than me, still gets asked for ID in stores and can run marathon in well under 4 hours.  However, I am not sure that I really count as 'young' any more, Mic. 

Coiner? She is an academic and understands crypto well, but does not hodl any coins.  It's just me that spends my time catching up on here; watching charts, and dreaming of rockets and trains.  Probably a good thing too.

One last pic - Gdansk old town in the morning from the window.  Around the port the buildings are stylistically reminiscent of Amsterdam. That sort of Hanseatic League era architecture, of tall, slim townhouses with steep sided roof designs.  It's worth a visit and has a hell of a history.  Further south in Poland, Krakow is pretty too - lovely city (take the lady with you).

Cheap and easy travel is a privelege we can still enjoy - even just in Europe there is more to see and enjoy than it is possible to fit in one liftime.  See as much as you can, while you can.  It may not be this easy for ever.
