Anyone using a savings account to "save" money and not hodling BTC is simply throwing assets away at an increasing rate.


Savings accounts don't even try to act like they're worthwhile anymore. I joined an online one back about a decade or more ago that was offering 3%. It's currently at about 1/3%. Laughable.

After all, who's going to want to borrow your money (a savings account is basically you lending money) when the central banks can just digitally print up a bunch extra and lend it out for cheap.

Cross posting about fuckery with Red Cross

Quote
Ukraine plans to evacuate over 200,000 people along the Mariupol - Mykilske - Rozivka - Bilmak - Polohe - Orikhiv - Zaporizhzhya route and over 15,000 people along the Volnovakha - Valeryanivka - Novoandriyivka - Kyrylivka - Vuhledar - Pokrovsk - Zaporizhzhya route, Vereshchuk said.

The ICRC is acting as a guarantor of the ceasefire during the evacuation, Vereshchuk said.

The Russian Defense Ministry said earlier, "Starting 10:00 a.m. Moscow Time today, March 5, the Russian side declares a ceasefire and opens humanitarian corridors for the exit of civilians from Mariupol and Volnovakha."
https://interfax.com/newsroom/top-stories/75602/

Cool seems like an agreement by both sides to evacuate civilians with Red Cross as a guarantor.


Quote
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) “understands” that civilian evacuations from Mariupol and Volnovakha will not go ahead on Saturday as planned, after operations were postponed by Ukrainian authorities citing continued Russian shelling in the area.
https://edition.cnn.com/europe/live-news/ukraine-russia-putin-news-03-05-22/h_13a7c76619d2babd355c5cc72781c23b

WTF? As of March 5 UN estimates 351 civilians killed. Don't take pictures of people and then tell them that they cant leave with Red Cross! Trying to claim that its better for hundreds of thousands of civilians to stay in the besieged city without water or power is madness, or correct term would be hostages! The fuckery with Red Cross needs to be condemned as strongly as possible, and i don't care what side you're on.

BORING.

Now, give me a snow-wrestling match between a peak-flaming Ukrainian and Russian bear, and that's another matter altogether.

How can I fund this with Bitcoin?

I did an exstensive internet research, as I assumed that exists, as per internet law #34.

But I failed.

This is the closest thing I found:

Incidentally there is also a bear in the video.

anybody know what's going on with Bitcoincharts dot com?  It's been down for days with a 500 Internal Server Error

Discussed previously here:

For a couple of days now:
500 - Internal server error - Bitcoin Charts

If this keeps happening I'm going to be looking for a way to look at charts that's super easy like bitcoincharts was.

Yes...

I used that website, too (Bitcoincharts.com)...   It also had some issues with its security certificate for several months.. so sometimes in the past few months there were issues in signing on.

From my perspective, the site was especially good for looking at historical data... so to be able to customize the dates that you wanted to look at and then to look at the chart that would be generated from the website from those inputted dates.

Of course, there were quite a few other useful and user-friendly options, as you suggested.. including its pretty straight-forward abilities to select a pretty vast array of options or indicators to include in the chart and to look at different exchanges or currency pairs.. though mostly I was interested in the USD/BTC pair.. but I noticed other currency pair options.

Savings accounts don't even try to act like they're worthwhile anymore. I joined an online one back about a decade or more ago that was offering 3%. It's currently at about 1/3%. Laughable.

After all, who's going to want to borrow your money (a savings account is basically you lending money) when the central banks can just digitally print up a bunch extra and lend it out for cheap.

Many of us likely realize that historically banks had an incentive to get people to deposit money with them because they were limited in how much they could loan based on their deposits, and they were also limited in their abilities to invest in a wide-variety of non-bank related matters.  Many of those standards disappeared, and probably there was a bit of purposefulness to it which has caused banks to have little to no incentive to give any shits about people depositing money with them because they can still create loans and create money for those loans out of thin air.. and they can both earn money in other ways by investing in all kinds of bullshit.. and also receive government hand-outs in the event that their undertaken risks don't end up paying off.  It's a strange world ikn the sense that such scandalous, disingenuine and detached from the communities behaviors are allowed by those banking institutions that are acting like they are working within communities.. when they are largely not even incentivized to give any shits about anyone except themselves and perhaps their various shareholders.. that may or may not have connections in the community, as well.



Good job.. Wow!!!   You blend right in.



Time flies... BTC

Gosh.. not even much time has gone by.. I did not recall the Feds selling that many coins during the 2015 bottom... which would have been around $250 per coin.

I recall a couple of other sales in mid-to-late 2014... so in the earlier sale they had gotten closer $620 per coin and maybe the later one in that year they had gotten something in the ballpark of $400 per coin...

There could have been some more sales after that, and if you think about it, there were so many folks that were down on bitcoin during those times.. and even the whole of 2015.. even carrying out into 2016, even though the BTC price did start to show signs of recovery in late 2015 and also in mid-2016 for any folks able to recognize such signs of optimism regarding the underlying (referring to bitcoin).

 Same as Visa and Mastercard but with higher merchant fees.
On a more serious note, they are also complying with sanctions.

From France24.com:

While American Express said its business in Russia was "small," it stressed that "since the beginning of this crisis, we have been complying with US and international sanctions."

Amex CEO Stephen Squeri said that "has resulted in us halting relationships with impacted bank partners in Russia, and we will continue to comply with all relevant laws as the situation evolves."
