If I could liquidate $1M at any reasonable price I would also do it. Thanks god gave me patience Smiley

Ok, I know this is likely to veer into mega-asshole-post territory, but feel it's good to offer some perspective.

Also, I acknowledge I am but a dolphin, not a whale, when compared to the likes of Theymos, and some other OG's that I'm sure are lurking.

Even in this shit market, I'm sitting on several millions of dollars USD worth of BTC, but ain't no fucking way I'm parting with them at these prices.

Anything I sell at this point is treated as a long-term capital gain.

I started mining this shit when it was near $2.50 USD/BTC. SODL enough that my cost basis is zero.

I can see the bigger picture developing. 2018 was a pretty spectacular year for tech and background work on Bitcoin (LND, Liquid, Taproot, exchange-batching adoption, increased segwit adoption, good progress navigating the legal landscape for courting institutional investors)

The bears are well fed at this point, and are overdue to begin their next hibernation cycle, "soon".

HODL.

Interesting story Bob.

+ 1 WO Merit - Somebody got my back? I’m out of sMerit again.


Very intresting, short on sendables as well but let is say i send 1 for us both, so i keep a sendable for tomorrow.....
Must have a Sm on drunk and loafers Saturdayzzz Grin

I’m a Merit Source mic, I get 3 Merit’s to send ler day (I think). The replenish in 31 days after being spent. Problem is sometimes I go over the top & send 7 or 8 in one day. That means some says I have 0.

I need to be more selective with my Merit’s but I’m like an alcoholic in a brewery at times - I can’t fucking help myself.

Keep it that way.... cause the thread always got you’re back Smiley
-just get off the being alcoholic watch out a bit, so you can fully enjoy you’re future BTC investment-

Much appreciated. Will sort you out when I get some of my source merit replenished Smiley

Sometimes I feel doubtful about my crypto decisions and posts like this helps me to keep moving on.

Compared to these guys I am just a small sardine.  Grin

It is funny and shameful they are still hodling strong while sitting on millions, I doubt myself with my tiny stash.

It is precisely because people like Bob held when the price was going up that they are now sitting on the millions that they are.
Many have sold everything way before it even hit the first big ATH at $1000 let alone hold out till 20K.
It’s never a good thing to liquidate it all. Hold on to a percentage of your stash no matter what the price.

Lol at talking about a permissionless world and meanwhile believing patents hold merit.

Two different systems, each governing different spheres of activity.

While we don't all get a chance to write the rules, we all must live within them.

And yet these two "systems" are not so separate as you try to make them appear, are they?

I dunno. How similar is a frog to an apple?

Would you be honest enough to criticize Craig, if you knew he was wrong?

Sure. He's already made a lot of bone headed statements already. No, I'm not going to enumerate them.

What's that got to do with the nexus between open source and patents? Or Craig challenging JPM on a patent infringement issue, for that matter? Unless you want to make the claim that nChain has not a patent infringed upon by JPM. Which may be the case- I don't know. But my suspicion is that Craig's claim -- at least in this case -- may indeed be true. He can't simultaneously have a mound of patents (for which core sycophants regularly excoriate him), and not have any patents.

I am almost there to my 5btc aim. Next stop is 10btc but I don't think I will be able to get there in a reasonable timeframe before the next bull run.

I showed you my 1 year btc buys before and this is my whole history:


(never sold a satoshi since 2016)

I hope the accumulation phase lasts at least 2 years this time.

I mean I can buy 30 btc right away but no. I'll dollar cost average the shit out of it.

You certainly are over-cautious in buying BTC. If you went all in 2016, by the end of 2017 you could had been a multi millionaire. I started buying at the end of 2016 although I watched the price since 2015. Back in 2015 I didn't know much about BTC, I didn't think of buying at all. I just started mining ETH with gpu rigs. I sold all for BTC before the big ETH rise to 450$ unfortunately. I made a lot of mistakes until mid 2017 when I went all in with my savings. I could had over 40 BTC if I wasn't shaken by China's bans and the forks. However, these first negative experiences made me firm to hodl and I endured all crashes since the Sep 2017 until now. I learned to appreciate BTC more than the gold or fiat. Playing with my precious BTC's in a daily trade is a no go! My "successful" trades in 2017 led to the missed opportunity 3x since 1000 to 3000$. Now I even used 3/4 of my credit card limits and I am converting all my salary into BTC. For me the best strategy is to hodl until I get at least $1-2mil (hopefully 4-5). My first goal is to reach 20BTC not by trade but by buying only. Whether the price will stay here or go up is of no importance to me, since I can buy directly or mine 1.5-2BTC per year. I am not happy with my current stash, which is only 16BTC, but by the end of 2020 I should be able to reach the 20BTC goal. I am still working on a plan what to spend and for what. On top of my list is a first line beach villa, then a new car, travelling around the world, and charity for homeless and sick children. A 100x from now should be enough for that  Grin Yes, it is close to the gold market cap, but if the gold went there without average Joe, mainly institutions, why not BTC go there with mass adoption and a little inst. investors? It is quite possible in the coming years and guaranteed for a longer period of time!

I agree with your possible initial criticism of mindrust's approach in that there is some decent likelihood of payoff with an aggressive BTC approach, especially during the BTC accumulation stage.

Hopefully, your level of aggressiveness, ivomm, does not involve too much gambling - and hopefully you have all your basic expenses covered, in the event your scenario projections don't play out in anywhere near expected.  In other words, BTC can still be a very good investment, even if it only goes up, on average 10% per year, because there is also the possibility of the 100x that may or may not happen...

Sure. He's already made a lot of bone headed statements already. No, I'm not going to enumerate them.

Let's do some of them anyway

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Craig_Wright

    Wright's claimed PGP key was provably backdated. [1][2]
    He was paid millions of dollars by nTrust to 'reveal' himself as Satoshi (this is for those who think he lacked motive)[3]
    Signature claimed to prove him to be Satoshi was worthless. [4]
    Second claimed "signature" was also an obvious forgery. [5]
    N-th claimed "signature" was yet another obvious forgery. [6]
    Faked blog posts showing his early involvement in bitcoin. [7]
    Craig Wright is apparently using his fame to run an advance-fee scam.[8]
    Incorrectly calling it "Bit Coin" several times in 2011. [9]
    Gross technical incompetence. [10][11][12]
    No evidence of any C++ proficiency.
    Plagiarizism[13]
    If Craig Wright really was the creator of Bitcoin, the proof would be trivial. We see an example by Charlie Lee the creator of Litecoin[14]

[edited out]

Your post made me buy another $100 worth of btc today. I am at 4.70 now. Wink

It is true that I am over cautious but I got my reasons. In 2015-2016 my business barely started to make money and everything I got was $25k. Now in hindsight it is easy to tell "You should have gone all in." but it is hard.

It is still hard for me to go all in right now. I don't know why.

I still feel like I have connections to FIAT. It is hard to leave everything behind and go full crypto. Takes courage.

You have to find what works for you, mindrust, and don't let peer pressure force you to do something that you are not ready to do.

It is possible that you need more tools.  I really don't believe in the "all in" approach, but I do believe in analyzing how much you are putting into bitcoin.  Risky, if bitcoin is your only investment, then likely you do have to keep more in fiat to balance that out.

Most traditional investors are recommending in the 1% to 10% into bitcoin versus other kinds of investments, and of course, if you are going on the more risky side of that, you may end up putting way higher amounts into bitcoin and not having other traditional investments, which seems to be gambling too much for me.. but hey, I built my traditional investments before diversifying into bitcoin...

I understand that if you are not starting out with much if any traditional investments, you might be more willing to put a higher percentage into bitcoin and even more leery of possible returns for more traditional investments.

Argentina Settles Export Deal With Paraguay Using Bitcoin: https://cointelegraph.com/news/argentina-settles-export-deal-with-paraguay-using-bitcoin

Quote
In a reported first for both countries, Paraguay has bought pesticides and fumigation products  worth $7,100 from Argentina, using cryptocurrency to settle the deal. The purchase was paid for in BTC and then converted into Argentine peso to settle accounts with the exporter of the agricultural chemicals.

Quote
Meanwhile in Paraguay, global blockchain tech firm and Bitcoin mining manufacturer Bitfury partnered with South Korean peer-to-peer knowledge commons research firm, Commons Foundation, to launch several mining facilities in the country.

Things are looking very good for Bitcoin.
