Nothing to do with Opsec. The guy is in Norway. In Norway everyone can see each others' salaries and tax payments. All the would be thief had to do was look up crypto companies and see how much money they were reporting.

Utterly barking.

Sure. Just send me the spot value in bitcoin and I will do. Not a problem at all, PM me for the bitcoin address.

Hell, pay for shipping and I'll chuck it in a box for you.

So you think Bitcoin is not known in #Turkey. Check this and see the whole video on our youtube channel 🔥🚀🔥 https://youtu.be/kApH8rxSNyk #bitcoin #thebitcoinfamily #sharingiscaring

https://twitter.com/Diditaihuttu/status/1170656160061558784?s=20



The street you see in the video, I used to drink, play guitar at the bars for beer money when I was younger. It is basically where the youth live or I should say, it used to. (they still do, but It is not as great) Now it is a damn refugee camp.

Even though I still live very near, I didn't set my foot there in the last 2 years probably. That Syria stuff fucked everything up here.

The Dutch guy's flat has a nice Bosphorus view though. Cool.

Bitcoin is going to start getting gradually treated as a safe haven asset *just in time* for a generational Blow-Off Top in the current monetary system.

7 billion people & their governments chasing true scarcity with infinite monopoly money.

All about real vs. paper assets now.

Haven't really made my mind about it but for now I am planning to dump %15-20 of my stash for every $10k increment starting from $50k and make the final blow at $100k.


I think that you are: 1) valuing your wealth too much in dollars, 2) attempting to time the BTC price movement too much, which is a) failing to account for the possibility of BTC prices going above $100k and b) not going to be able to profit if BTC prices go above $100k.  Furthermore, if you establish a more sound plan, you will both be able to support the bitcoin infrastructure more and possibly even personally profit more, too.  

O.k.  I do not mean this as any kind of hostile message.  Instead, I intend to be a friendly collaborator to outline a possible better approach and way of thinking about cashing out during such uncertain BTC price dynamic times.

Accordingly, I suggest that you tweak your plan a little bit in order that you are not engaging in as much all or nothing kind of thinking and you strive to always keep some stash in bitcoin.  Of course, do whatever the fuck you like, it is your life... hahahhahahaha  This is not financial advice...hahahahahaha... even though it is.   Wink

Anyhow, instead of calculating dumping 15% to 20% of your stash from the amount of your original stash amount, calculate 15% to 25% from your stash balance as it evolves.  This is not going to cause a whole lot of difference in the amount that you cash out, but it will allow you to meaningfully stay in bitcoin in a variety of circumstances and thus to sufficiently hedge yourself.   Of course, you can tweak the numbers that I have outlined.

In other words, if you sell between 15% to 25% (which  I am going to readjust to 20% for calculation purposes) from the readjusted balance of your stash, you will never run out of bitcoin.  

Also, you are using $10k price increments which has the problem of 1) round numbers and 2) the problem of an amount that is set in terms of dollars which causes a lowering of the percentage each time you execute, so instead of calculating exact dollar increments, maybe you should start out selling BTC at around $47.5k (just in case BTC prices never (or take a long time) end up breaking above $50k), and then use something like 20% increments.  I got this 20% based on your $10k/$50k which is more or less 20% (of course, you can make the percentage lower or higher after you play around with it).

So I am giving a ballpark in which your sell ladder would look something like this:


Sell Price    BTC balance    BTCSell Amt  Pfolio$Value soldValue   soldTotal
$47,478.00   7.00000000      0.00000000   $332,346.00   $0.00           $0.00

$352,765.51   0.60129542      0.12025908   $212,116.29   $42,423.26   $643,571.81

As you can see from the chart, you would start out at some number, such as $47,478 and you would have a certain number of BTC that for this example I hypothesize to be 7BTC.   You would sell in 20% price increments 20% of the value of your then holdings.  In this hypothetical the dollar value of your BTC holdings goes down, but it does not go down to zero.  The BTC that you hold go down, too, but of course they are worth more at each upwards price interval.  You will see that over time, that you have an accumulated cashing out value that far exceeds your earlier HOLDing value, especially once the BTC price gets to $100k (assuming it does) but even moreso, if the BTC price were to get to 1/2 a $million... which surely might not happen, but surely it should not hurt too much to prepare for such possibility and even other possibilities that are far beyond our expectations (which we know sometimes happens in bitcoinlandia).

Of course, if you were to create a chart like this with the formulas already contained therein, then you can play around with the increments and the amounts in order to figure out more acceptable ways to achieve all of your goals (of course, provided that BTC's price cooperates).  In my thinking, it might be good to cash out an amount that also allows your BTC $ value to continue to go up no matter what, even if it is just a percentage or two of price appreciation.





Also I'll buy back every piece I dumped if the price goes $10k lower from where I sell the coins.

For example;

Sold %20 @ $50k. Now there are 2  possibilities.

 A) the price goes down for $10k to $40k and I buy back and increase the btc amount,
 B) It goes higher and reaches $60k. Then I'll domp et again another %16-17.

If A) happens in the first round  > back to hodling
If B) happens > again another 2 possibilities A) and B) but this time it's happening @ $60k.

Will probably play that game to maximize the profits till it reaches $100k. Not really decided on anything just thinking. I may completely ignore the "buy back" part too.


Your buy back part sounds reasonable; however, since you seem a little nervous about buying back, based on your last sentence, then maybe you should consider setting your buy back numbers to be quite extremely low, and if the BTC price never goes to such extremely low amounts, then you do not care, you just end up spending the fiat.  And, of course, if the price ends up going to your buy back numbers, then you are happy about that, too because you got a decent bargain in your buy back amount without even having to inject new fiat into your system.

Here just got another one: Bitcoin rate is growing. Become a millionaire. Get a passive income of $ 3,500 per day   Cool

 Some people might think:  Oh $3,500 per day, I don't need that much, so even if the amount is only $350 per day, then I am good with that, so there must be some truth, even if the amount is not as much as they say, which filters out smarter peeps and really sucks in the dumbest of the dumbasses who are looking to be scammed.

I think the trick here is to avoid the unprofitable Scenario 1 and stick to Scenario 2.

Scenario 1:


Scenario 2:


So I'm going to play the "buy back" game only if the price drops significantly, like 75%.

I have done something much closer to scenario 1 in BTC since 2015, and I have done quite well for myself.  Of course, if you look in retrospect, maybe I could have done better with scenario 2, but might also cause me to behave too extremely, too.

I think that jbreher (ignoring, for a moment, his dumbass bcash bullshit) follows a similar type of scenario 1 like system in BTC, which I believe is quite profitable for him, too, in terms of his BTC stash.  Again, who cares about the possibility of any of the application to bcash or the fact that jbreher has likely diverted some or too much value to bcash or the possible application to some other shitcoins, because the application to shit coins is largely irrelevant if not a disaster in the making.

Interesting article, ...
Quote
Central and commercial banks are the top dogs of the world’s largest market by trading volume—the $5-trillion-a-day foreign exchange (FX) market. A closer look at the balance of power in this global industry reveals how banks could manipulate, and even dominate, cryptocurrency in an unregulated market.
...
Through policy, central banks could incentivize their commercial underlings to realize Hal Finney’s “Bitcoin bank,” replicating the fractional-reserve banking system of today using BTC as reserve currency and effectively integrating it into the world of FX.

...
If banks enter the crypto market in force and employ some of the tactics they have evidently used to dominate FX—legitimate or mischievous—heavy implications could be in store for the price discovery of cryptocurrency. Ultimately, both commercial and central banks would profit from placing fiat-style controls over crypto and subjecting the market to the same dynamics at play in FX.

It is a bit weird that Americans decided to adopt the word "football" for their sport. The foot connecting with the ball is a rarer part of the action.
Yeah I'm just about over that. In Rugby Football, which is a similar sport, it's often the way the players use their feet that marks them out as good players: the jinking run, the sidestep, the shimmy, the line and of course speed of attack; are all [edit:part of rugby] football, without kicking the thing.

There was a lot more 'punting' and 'field goal' kicking and running plays. Most passes were 'laterals' (sideways/behind small airborne handoffs).

The 'invention' of the true 'forward pass' is what really doomed the name football in football. Smiley

Not at all. At least never intentionally.

or to to get caught in stupid-ass technical arguments

I guess it takes a self-described technical ignoramus to openly refer to technical arguments as 'stupid-ass'.

you have a significantly large amount of misleading and misinformation in your posts

You are wrong. There is no such thing as factual information that is misleading or misinforming. I present facts, and leave the editorializing to a minimum. Any mis- is in your misattribution of ulterior motive to my actions, which causes you to invent things in my writings that are not there.


I guess the courts must have it wrong when they ask witnesses to tell the whole truth.  

Quote
Do you solemnly (swear/affirm) that you will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, (so help you God/under pains and penalties of perjury)?

That’s your problem. You tell the selective, partial truth all the time, mixed with your opinion and supposition.  It is deliberately misleading.  You hide behind technical arguments which rely on narrow, outdated definitions.  

And then you get angry when you are called out.
