The Bitcoin SV pump is based on CSW's saying that the bonded courier actually showed up with the tulip trust keys. In other words, he says he's now in possession of 1 million or so BTC (half of which is supposed to go to the Kleimans).

https://beincrypto.com/bitcoin-craig-wrights-courier/

If only there were a way for him to prove that they keys arrived and that he truly is (along with Kleiman) Satoshi.

If only...


You mean prove, cryptographically that he is Satoshi Nakamoto by signing a message?

That’s asking for too much Wink

To be fair...he may not know how to do that.

Can someone explain that to him so he can prove he's Satoshi?

Good to see the price coming back.

I've been playing around with the Omni Layer and am fairly impressed. It seems like it was all built up for Mastercoin, then changed to Omni later and a lot of work was put into their web wallet...then everyone moved on to something else.
But fortunately they left some decent code and I can use it.

The plan is to have Ocean Builders credits that are like gift cards toward purchasing a floating home. Then create a new coin for every home built so people can own portions of each home.

Omni also provides a decentralized exchange so people can trade via the wallet with no middle man. All running on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Though we have a guy who works for Ethereum who is coming to join us who will likely be pushing for it all to be on smart contracts. And since he knows a hell of a lot more about it than I do, he will make a very compelling case.

Fortunately all of the owners are big Bitcoin holders so using Bitcoin is an easy sell.

Thus begins the battle of the coins for the future of seasteading.

One way pretty sure way to lose your bitcoins.  Might have to add that to "how I lost my bitcoins" thread.

That's it? Everyone worried that a criminal is going to steal your private keys to get your ownership of your house? Then what? Come on a dinghy to your house and tell you that you have to leave because they stole the keys fair and square?

You lose $1 million in BTC or a $1 million house...doesn't make holding your keys any different.

Your pumping of a business model that is NOT going to work is another way to lose bitcoin.

Would be dumb to invest in that crap before some kind of meaningful business model including jurisdictional agreement, which seems more pie in the sky thinking than anything... but hey, all innovations require some going out on the edge, yet the topic is NOT so much about bitcoin than it is about an idea..... and pie in the sky innovation that might be more receptive with the ethereum crowds, too....

Yeah, I know that you have some people in bitcoin who really like the idea and even have concerns for you in terms of the risks that you had taken, but still does not mean that there is anything equivalent of the idea to bitcoin or the ideas of bitcoin, even though you are making such connections (besides your ethereum additions) and even your having had been a bitcoin advocate....

Sure, I remember before you even got into seasteading, you had made a pretty gutsy move to invest all the proceeds from your sale of your house into bitcoin, and you were ridiculed about that for a while until it likely paid off pretty good, but still your BTC dedication or even your willingness to take risks or even to battle the PTB does not make seasteading a good investment or even the pumpening of such very relevant to this thread besides that some folks might be interested in the topic of your adventures and even personally respectful of you.

Please, be honest guys. I could do with a good laugh.
Back in the days (before BCH fork) I had some BCH in Binance. I did not even realize that I had some there. One day for some reason I logged in my Binance and realized I had some BCH there but discovered this BSV shit too. At that time Craig was very high in his nonsenses and I thought why the fuck I will have them. So I exchanged them for BTC. The rate was shit but I do not regret.

Our floating homes will not be high risk. As high risk as buying a houseboat.

Paying with bitcoin is not high risk. It is actually easier than trying to pay with dollars.

Holding partial ownership on the blockchain...ok, slightly new but not much difference from owning a timeshare. Probably cheaper.

It will still require a third party to hold the title as middleman to the Panamanian government. Each home can be sold in different ways, using the Bitcoin blockchain will be one of many options. You can pay with gold for one if you want.

I post in here about the different tech around Bitcoin such as Omni (RGB, Rootstock) because there is always talk about it but I have found very few people actually use most of these things so I would rather give a real world perspective on the tech that people read news articles about but don't really know if it is viable. Such things certainly affect the Bitcoin price. If some Bitcoin related tech is hyped, it would be good to know if it is as good as reported.

CME did more BTC Options volume on Day 1 than Bakkt did today.
RIP Bakkt
Hardly knew you

Tiny bit early to judge, nonetheless gutting for Rekkt Bakkt

Bakkt trades options eventually settling into real Bitcoins.
CME   trades options eventually settling into shitcoin US Dollars.

Difference is not trivial.

Usual self-promoting ad:
Everything you wanted to know about BTC options but were afraid to ask!

Yeah, but in practice, is it really true?  Are we making a distinction without a difference?

Does BAKKT really have the bitcoins that they proclaim to have?

This is a naive question, bringing me some interesting other question, I will later try to answer.

Go for the naive part: Bakkt has the Bitcoin? YES.
How do I know? Contract specification.

When you own a future, you are constantly (well, at COB) called to margin your positions. This means that when you open a position in a future you are required to post a certain amount of cash along your position. You cannot open a position if you haven’t a big enough amount of cash in a collateral cash balance at the exchange. This amount is set by the exchange to cover the daily variation of the underlying (BTC, in this case, but this mechanism is valid for any underlying). At the end of the trading day this cash  balance is adjusted to reflect the P&L of the future position: money is poured in if your future position has gone in the right direction, otherwise the exchange take from this account the daily loss (and transfer it to your counterpart). In case the residual cash balance is lower than the initial margin, you are called to refill your margins (the infamous “margin call”, or to close forced into closing the position). This means two things: firstly the exchange has no credit risk: every counterpart has a daily margining so their exposure is not too big, second the P&L is actually credited daily in the exchange, so frauds are very limited.
So, can BAKKT exit scam you? Very unlikely, as this is the opposite way this business works (also:  BAKKT and maybe CME would suffer a tremendous reputation as risk putting their own existence at risk in case of a default).

The hard part in all this reasoning: is this margining all done in BTC? As per my explaination it should. But I don’t remember anything like that in the product specification. I wil check later, when real life settles a litttle bit.
I am going also to put this answer in my future related thread, as it is a point I would have liked to cover, but I actually didn’t.

Thanks for the explanation.

I doubt that my question is as naive as you had proclaimed it to be, but hey time will tell if there is screwing around with what are supposed to be BTC reserves in such a way that they cannot be settled after BIG runs that might go on for extended periods of time, and the BIGGEST of tests would be periods in which bitcoin prices keep going up beyond expectations... including something like a period in June 2017 to December 2017 when, largely, the BTC top ended up being about 3x to 5x higher than the most bullish of expectations, and there could even be fuel in which we end up experiencing even more bullish runs when these kinds of BIG money are more in place and they want to screw over shorters in such a way that goes way the hell beyond expectations..

real world tests that might involve 10s of thousands of bitcoins over several months that are continuing to run against expectations and necessity to actually pay up rather than what it says on paper about what is supposed to happen.

1. Finding a local bottom. Should be at 1300-3000 range.

2. As it dropped fast - as it should bounce fast to retest lost $6000 level and log trend at around 10000-20000. 2019-2020 AD.

3. Then it should fall back to ~6000 support. This should happen up to 2020 AD.

4. Go to new highs. Beyond 2020 year.

Has anybody here ever bought BSV?

Please, be honest guys. I could do with a good laugh.

OK, here is my good laugh:  Cheesy

No, srsly:

I sold my BCH asap, six days after the fork, IIRC.
So i would not even have had "free" BSV.

As a part of a small trade, to help someone (...) out with some satoshis, really peanuts to most of you - and as a sign of good will - i bought BSV up to 20% of my past BTC "trading stash", which was in the tenths regions, and sold them with a little gain, around 10-15% percent up, about two weeks later when the market wasn't as "trading-friendly" any more. I cut the total gain in half and sent one half off to the receivers wallet, one half was left at the exchange. Fun fact: I received about the same amount by theymos for my art piece later. If some of you believe in Karma...

That's it. I wouldn't buy BSV for hodling, never ever.

EDIT: another classic: My first BTC transaction, as a test, was hijacked by a trojan and - of course - lost.
0,01 at $3k price levels, but still... I was glad that it happened so early, learned a lot by that and it wasn't a really big loss (in fiat equivalent, back then).

That's my bullish input for all you moon boys anyway.

Not going to win too many friends in these parts by referring to peeps here (and assumingly HODLers and accumulators) as moon boys.  But, hey, do what you feel that you must.

Sorry, that BTC prices are moving against your anticipations  Cry...... Not really. Tongue

It's ok I'm not looking for friends, just to learn from others  Tongue

Fair enough.  I am similar in regards to merely attempting to share information and sometimes even be combative in terms of ideas that might be taken too personally from time to time, when they are meant to be substantive assertions.

So sometimes if any of us calls another a dumbass or some other inflammatory assertion, it may be attempting to exaggerate a substantive assertion rather than any kind of personal attack.

You're right, it did go against how I anticipated though, not going to deny that  Wink

The trouble with any assertions of price direction is attempting to assign the right probabilities and even then still getting the matter wrong.  So, even though I have seen recent analysis from you that were going in both directions, I had concluded that you were anticipating more down rather than up, but cannot really fault you for that, just picking on you a bit.  Your analysis do not tend to be too unreasonable, so it can be difficult to disagree when you at least attempt to back them up and even allow for reasonable anticipations that the price might move against your predictions from time to time.


Lucky I didn't get rekt™ shorting really.

I would hope that most experienced short term traders do anticipate losing on trades from time to time, and sure some traders will win more often than others or protect their position more than others.

I surely don't proclaim to be a short-term trader, even though I engage in practices that are similar to short-term traders by creating both buy orders or sell orders, but I rarely will adjust my trade orders based on my expectations of price movements because I barely have any confidence regarding my own expectations that go much beyond a few percentage point changes in one direction or another and usually NOT enough for me to change my behaviors much if any. 
 

Didn't realise moon boys was offensive though, I thought anyone who believes a $100K BTC is possible in the near future was a moon boy by default. We're all moon boys? Maybe men still get offended by being called boys I dunno, I forget to keep check of these things.

I am not exactly sure why it is offensive either, but I can tell by reading it that it is problematic to be generalizing and using diminuitive terms that lump everyone into the same category while suggesting that you are not in that category.

Your first comment did not seem to include yourself into the "moon boy" category, so it seemed that you were referring to others in this thread, and maybe even criticizing one of the prominent lauded qualities of folks in this thread, which is the BTC HODLer and accumulators.

I do believe that there are all kinds of variations in the expectations of thread participants regarding how far and how fast they expect BTC to arrive at certain price points, including how much certainty is assigned to such predictions.  Sure, some of us talk about those ideas more than others, but even with that opinions vary amongst members and even vary within the same member if asked during a dip or a pump or even with the passage of time. Look at mindrust, he is all over the place, and that is part of his human endearingness, but he still seems to be attempting to follow a practice to maximize his accumulation of BTC.. and even doing some dumb things (or having some dumb ideas) along the way and trying to learn from that.  His learning teaches many of the rest of us and allows us to learn or even share some of our own mistakes or even some of our bad thinking in regards to our bitcoin strategies or even figuring out if we might need to control our emotions a bit more or to have some more emotions.. including getting carried away.. including yours truly from time to time.. 

Yeah, some of us can become quite stubborn or even abrasive in our presentation of ideas (including yours truly), but there is still a lot of variation, even with HODLers and accumulators... and surely a lot of us here share another commonality, which are disinclinations towards people talking down the BTC price, so in that sense maybe we can be considered moon boys in that regard, but you can likely appreciate that many active participators in this thread come to this thread and investing into bitcoin in order to want to see bitcoin succeed, so there seems to be some cognitive dissonance when people are participating in a thread like this but talking against bitcoin, so that remains part of the reason why bears are going to naturally have a harder time and more of a need to back up their statements of certitude.


Maybe moon men would be more appropriate, but doesn't have the ring to it.

Probably more about the way you say it rather than what you say... and yeah, I am not always the nicest chap in the thread, and I surely have received my share of criticisms and even deeply felt dislikes by some members, but some times points can be made without adding insults... I would agree that if your comment had seemed to include yourself as a fellow moon boy, then with that kind of tone, then it would NOT have been as offensive.. but you know that you were using the term as a differentiator and even a kind of dig rather than suggesting that you were in the same group, and maybe even a bit of an emotional dig because BTC's price is continuing to have upwards pressures that might continue to go against your short term expectations.

Regarding my current short-term BTC expectations, I don't really know what to think. It is feeling kind of bullish, but I understand that the upwards movement can stop at any time.  And, we surely cannot ignore what is going on in the alt coin space and/or considerations regarding whether those pumpenings are going to end up affecting BTC price dynamics.. fuck.. you never really know.  The whole space could continue to pump for a while, or it could just implode.. I could implode proportionately or it could implode with inverse correlations.  Who the fuck expected that scam coin Bcash sv to pump 200%.. and yeah, folks like jbreher or even some of the other bcash supporters will be gloating, but still those outrageous moves can end up wreaking all kinds of havoc in the short term that is not really easy to predict with any degree of certainty, and I suppose that most of the experienced and successful traders will be hedging in various ways to the extent that they do not have a large amount of insider knowledge about some material event(s).
