I was in awe reading this book in 2015.
Albeit, only those with ~3000 btc could be currently called truly 'sovereign individuals' as described in the book
the rest of us could aspire to become in due course
The sad part is that Bezos, Musk, etc already are SI, but most of us are not there yet.
In fact, Musk has displayed independence of a 'sovereign individual' in his tussle with SEC and his county (i mean where tesla factory is) health commish.
They did not know what they were dealing with, lol.

[snip]



Yeah, I too well remember reading that book around 1997 or so.  Full of wonderful ideas of what might happen, and much of it already has.  It is too bad that to become a Sovereign Individual requires a lot more money than even serious BTC HODLers will likely be able to ever have.

I think that +/- 1000BTC (plus whatever other assets you might have) might be enough, as long as one's appetites are not too high...  But 1000BTC is way more than I will ever have, by orders of magnitude.  *Sigh*

The one thing (that I can remember) that has NOT come to pass that the authors predicted is a territorial jurisdiction that would welcome such Individuals by offering low taxes and other welcoming features for investment capital.

It seems that Socialism and hating the rich still seems to hold such power all over the world.  Pity.

Bitcoin has a branding problem. While we might not care this is largely reducing Bitcoin's accessibility to the masses.

And while #Bitcoin is an amazing technology in itself, I believe the missing link lies in leveraging its culture, the #Hodlculture.

"Foreigners have for centuries reduced Balinese cockfights to a senseless form of gambling. Similarly, Bitcoin might at first be associated with gambling, black markets and hackers. But dive into these worlds & things start looking quite differently"

very good thread on hodling

It seem to me that there are a quite a few longer term BTC HODLers who just consider all the ongoing bullshit in the space and the lack of BTC's good publicity to be means for the BTC price to stay lower and allow for longer term ongoing BTC accumulation.. while other diptwats are either distracted, mislead or lacking in their research in terms of figuring out what bitcoin is.

Sure, there are some bitcoiners who are out there and engaging in various kinds of free marketing, and it seems that overall people are going to start to figure it out, .. so really it tends to be difficult to rush a good thing... I cannot really see any reason to complain that bitcoin is either badly marketed or NOT marketed enough.. because it is not like any of us long term HODLers really want to change matters.. and the lack of marketing is not really a threat to bitcoin, is it?  Developers are still working on bitcoin for "free," with some companies choosing to voluntarily fund some developers, and miners are still incentivized to direct their hashing power toward bitcoin, keeping our coins nice and (overly secure)...  Remember that diptwat billyjoeallen, who used to come into the thread and to proclaim that BTC was too secure... blah blah blah...

If it is not broke, then don't fix it is part of my current thinkenings, and also good things will come to those who wait... and ... blah blah blah... My thinkenings are not exactly ongoingly consistent... which reminds me that consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, anywho.

I don't know, it seems most very rich people are fine living in the most expensive places.

Not easy, but for that amount I can take several hours a day to achieve it.

When new spots are opened in the campaign, feel free to apply - but if you want to have some chances, work on your posts - because that's the most important thing (at least in my opinion) that the campaign manager looks at. Nothing is impossible, only if you want it hard enough Wink

CM is quite picky. He has to be. What you should do is pretend like you are already in the campaign, and post everywhere else but WO thread, as this thread is not counted. Do that for a couple of weeks or longer, then send an application. 50 posts per weeks is about 7 or 8 per day. You should space it out the whole day too, like post once every hour, at normal "working" time.

Or just look at the spreadsheet and look at the other participants in the campaign, and do what they do, in terms of posting frequency, and where they post. I'm almost sure you can just grab a few, and reply to whatever thread they are in with a full sentence or paragraph, and that should be considered okay.

Good idea, I'll track others. I'm also thinking of trying to join another campaign, even if earning satoshis, just for "training".

The peasantry have always hated nobility and always will.

The secret is to keep the peasants happy. Bread and circuses.

Genghis Kahn exempted the poor from taxation. The nobility still got richer.

Don't be too greedy.

Made a transaction earlier, 116 sats per byte fee. This was around 11:00am, still waiting for a confirmation nearly 7 hours later.

I’ve accelerated it with Via Bitcoin free accelerator but fucking hell.....7 hours.

This is a  result of blocks dropping off from 154 rate a day first 7 days of this jump to 132 rate a day next 3 days of the jump.


As a miner my blocks now pay an average of 1 coin in fees today vs .5 coins a few days back.

I can get into a ton of short term play that major miners can do.

Owning 10% of the hash rate (bitmain) means the possibility of moving 1000's of s17pro gear from 43th to 50th to 56th.

This  Allows a ton of diff manipulation  which can in turn raise and lower price marginally.  It is a different kind of whale.

I Used to write tons of posts on this still do but I am looking to get a better understanding of trader influences on price.

I still Say at 19 million x 11750 = 224 billion. there is a ton of cash value available for BTC growth.

6400$ would be nice to fill my bags !

We would need huge new wave of infected from covid-19 and all 6 vaccines that are in 3rd phase should be found not working. Then yes we might see $6400 Bitcoin. But chances for that are very slim. Russians already got 1 billion orders for their vaccine.

That is strange.  I made a transaction with 30 sat/B,  less then 2h ago and have 6 confirmations.

Hey I hail from New York City.  I am a native New Yorker.  But I have lived almost as much time here in Howell NJ as I have in NYC

Lets do some math

19.0 Years NYC
  1.5 Years LI, New York
  4.5 Years USN
10.0 Years NYC
28.0 Years Howell,NJ

63.0 Years which is close enough
