It's somewhat entertaining to find out it's ponzi only if you are not an early adopter. Grin

early entrants of a ponzi never complain.

But that doesn't make them "less ponzi", isn't it?

Early exiters.

And there are hardly any of those. They ride it into the ground just like everyone else having been shown glittering numbers.

Who is mic?
If you’re talking about the artist formerly known as micgoossens sadly he was lost in a boating accident.

Rest In Peace my old friend.
Mic was a legend, a friend, a good boyfriend (of cryptoqeen), a bitcoiner and his biggest identity was that he was the most active and loved WO in the community. F**k you this El Duderino_, don't fake Mic 😘 (No Homo)
By the way, finally you got your brand @Mic. I bet you were looking for El Duderino but this useless guy had it already long ago.

Back in the day I actually did something similar and it worked. Anyone here remember Cryptodouble?
You sent them X amount of bitcoin or shitcoin, and 3 days later they sent you back double your “investment”
There was even a countdown next to your listed payment showing you the hours to your 2x payout.
Obvious Ponzi scam but that didn’t stop folks from piling in because for 1st 2 weeks or so it was confirmed
to be actually paying. After a test with some dust, I gambled 100,000 doge and some litecoin, dark coin
spare change. 3 days later right on cue, I get sent back double my investment. Of course, about 3 days later
they exit scammed. Big surprise there.  Those were the days.... lol.
True story.

I remember investing in similar platforms back in 2010/11; they used to accept LibertyReserve and PerfectMoney mostly (no crypto of course) and used to double your USD. Mostly, they used to call themselves "Matrix" (or maybe "Forced Matrix"?) and used to work on a simple algorithm for doubling:

Suppose:

User A pays $10 to the platform
User B pays $10 to the platform
User C pays $10 to the platform
User B's and User C's $10 goes to User A, totaling $20
User B is now the next one to be paid once a new User D invests

This used to work well sometimes, especially when the platforms remained new and didn't have a big queue to pay.

However, there's still a nice difference in such a platform and the doublers present in the replies of tweets.

So i followed that interesting conversation today...

Two medium educated men, proud of their 5%pa investments (stock market or fonds based, excluding inflation loss), were talking about bitcoin.
They said buying btc at the time would be dumb, because if you aren't an early adopter, it's just a ponzi.
Also, that if governments don't take measures against "this ponzi", they must be either holding OR they have no control over bitcoin.

Don't get me wrong, i would enjoy being simple minded like these two, but then i would also probably fomo all-in right before the next ATH (2022 probably?).
At that time, they might even ask me if i heard about bitcoin, and that i should sell my house to buy btc)

It's somewhat entertaining to find out it's ponzi only if you are not an early adopter. Grin

And yes, they are the majority in the world, we are just a small and strange(!) minority.


I never understood this ponzi argument, how can something with infrastructure built to support it be a ponzi? Ponzi's do not have assets let alone such easily verifiable ones at that.

Can it be CSW, I figured no a while back, but just from the sv thread.

No that's right it's a Russian troll called korner. According to the Yank troll called nutildah. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5211434.0

Ironically the Bitcoin SV account has no actual connection to Bitcoin SV. He knows fuck all about it, and is indeed a banned, multi-accounting troll. He also owns the Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Cash accounts but never uses them.

I learned this from my Russian sources, with whom I've been colluding behind the scenes.

Korner is a lot like Garry Kasparov: he plays 4D chess, trolls the government, and all the other Russians hate him.

After reading his posts for the last year I can't see him winning any intellectual game let along any form of chess. Is 4d (how the fuck?) chess played by teeter tots?

Thats the only way I can see him having a chance.

I doubt that it is only Samsung, it is very likely that other smartphone makers have a pre-installed app that could be considered potentially dangerous. Huawei smartphones also come with some optimizer app which has Avast as AV solution, but since it is a Chinese manufacturer, I am not so concerned with the software, but the hardware that can have some spy chip, which is not something that is easily detectable.

I use Electrum on my Huawei, and I move some nice amounts of BTC in and out in recent months, so far there have been no problems or unpleasant surprises.

Discussion of crypto's quantum vulnerability (if nothing changes) seems to be heating up...
Quote
We should seek and upgrade to a quantum-resistant crypto stack in blockchain implementations and all other systems that depend on asymmetric crypto (e.g., banks, governments, etc.) as soon as possible. Quantum supremacy is inevitable — it’s just a case of when.

I wouldn't be surprised if it were only slightly behind most other populations. The majority of dots are heading in the right direction.

I'd like to meet the American who believes 80 million Iranians live on Tristan da Cunha. That's a squeeze.
