Alright so I hate to disrupt the flow of higher-level information being exchanged, however, I have a few basic/starter questions about Monero and crypto-currency trading in general.

Before I fully start investing a lot of time into this arena, monero specifically, what are the most important and most helpful concepts to learn about early on before high volume trading? I would like to have a decent understanding of Monero before getting too involved.

Additionally, my immediate attraction towards Monero is it relationship with successes in dark-web marketplaces. I believe strongly in their future successes and with Monero being a true anonymous cryptocurrency, as well as being used more I hope to see this as a great opportunity. Also does anyone have any opinions on the timing of getting into Monero now, has the major surges already happened, or is there plenty of room for growth in the next year or two.

Any helpful replies/opinions are greatly appreciated.
How about a variant of dollar cost averaging.
In conventional dca, you put the same amount of dollars into an investment per unit time.  Say you have 63 thousand dollars to invest.  You could invest 10.5 thousand dollars per month for 6 months.
But you could use an exponentially decaying function to set the buy amounts, say

32,000      October
16,000      November
  8,000      December
  4,000      January
  2,000      February
  1,000      March

63,000      total

or instead of having each monthly contribution decline by half, we might specify a decrease of thirty percent

21,420      October
15,000      November
10,500      December
  7,350      January
  5,130      February
  3,600      March

63,000      total

The above strategy isn't for the market timer or day trader, it's for the prospective hodler.

https://www.monero.how/ , http://monero-observer.com/ , https://getmonero.org/ , https://forum.getmonero.org Here, 4 links with tons of informations. I believe it will be enough. Smiley

IMO if you don't have any Monero you should buy some pretty fast, you never know when big rise in price will come. I believe that Monero has plenty of room for growth in next year or two. But you never know in crypto world, so be carefull!

Received this email, not even sure if it's true as I stopped using Mintpal as soon as it started looking scammy which was pretty quickly after Moolah got a hold of it. Moolah was an obvious scan from the get go.

Avon and Somerset Police Mintpal Investigation




Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Operation Sparrow is an ongoing UK fraud investigation into the activities of Moolah and its former CEO Ryan Kennedy, also known as Alex Green.

 

The investigation focuses on Kennedy’s acquisition of Mintpal in 2014 and the subsequent disappearance and dispersal of customers’ funds from the exchange.

 

Kennedy has been charged with a number of fraud offences in relation to these matters and is due to face trial at Bristol Crown Court.

 

I am writing to you as you have been identified through your email address as a possible victim of this fraud and may have incurred a financial loss. You are one of almost fourteen thousand people that have been affected by this case so please accept my apologies that it is not practical for me to respond to individual queries at this time. I would urge you not to reply directly to this email, nor to phone Avon and Somerset Constabulary regarding the case. Updates will be published as and when available.

 

At this stage of the investigation I am unable to confirm whether there will be any possibility of financial compensation.

 

I should be grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete the attached survey that will assist us in identifying potential victims more quickly and efficiently.

 

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8GSBZJP

 

Please submit your completed questionnaire by 31st January 2018. Responses received after this date will not be processed.

 

Thank you for your time.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Detective Constable Charlotte Suter

Got a good point there, it may be I'm just bit too paranoid and I think this is data harvesting operation.

There's a very good chance your right, I just don't care enough to even google it but I figured whether it's phishing or true either way I'd let you guys know that I got one.

there is 1 issue with Monero, a big one: SCALING

All decentralized cryptocurrency has this problem.  It is entailed by the massive trade-off Satoshi made of performance and efficiency for security.

But Monero is socially self-scaling just like Bitcoin in that as it grows in fiat value each tx can perform more economic work.

The ZOMG ALLCAPS SCAAAALING1! FUD was used by Chicken Littles to push famously failed projects like BitcoinXT.

The sky is not falling.  If you really want privacy to buy coffee, perhaps Aeon or PIVX will provide a substitute good until Monero's Layer 2 is ready.

Trust in marginalism and markets; the substitution effect and pricing mechanism ensure the supply of Monero tx is effectively infinite. Wink

Received this email, not even sure if it's true as I stopped using Mintpal as soon as it started looking scammy which was pretty quickly after Moolah got a hold of it. Moolah was an obvious scan from the get go.


Quote
Avon and Somerset Police Mintpal Investigation




Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Operation Sparrow is an ongoing UK fraud investigation into the activities of Moolah and its former CEO Ryan Kennedy, also known as Alex Green.

 

The investigation focuses on Kennedy’s acquisition of Mintpal in 2014 and the subsequent disappearance and dispersal of customers’ funds from the exchange.

 

Kennedy has been charged with a number of fraud offences in relation to these matters and is due to face trial at Bristol Crown Court.

 

I am writing to you as you have been identified through your email address as a possible victim of this fraud and may have incurred a financial loss. You are one of almost fourteen thousand people that have been affected by this case so please accept my apologies that it is not practical for me to respond to individual queries at this time. I would urge you not to reply directly to this email, nor to phone Avon and Somerset Constabulary regarding the case. Updates will be published as and when available.

 

At this stage of the investigation I am unable to confirm whether there will be any possibility of financial compensation.

 

I should be grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete the attached survey that will assist us in identifying potential victims more quickly and efficiently.

 

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8GSBZJP

 

Please submit your completed questionnaire by 31st January 2018. Responses received after this date will not be processed.

 

Thank you for your time.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Detective Constable Charlotte Suter

Easily answered, and what you should always do. Reply out of band, i.e. in this case ring them at their advertised telephone number and ask for the officer.

If you get a similar weird phone call, don't call back on the same phone. Go out of band again and use another phone or your mobile. So scammers cant keep the line open and pretend to answer again as the "police HQ".

These scams are always going round, but they tend to target the old and weak. Maybe crypto is getting too attractive for them.

Can we make Skepticism Sunday a part of the Monero Culture?
by Vespco

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/75w7wt/can_we_make_skepticism_sunday_a_part_of_the/


I really dislike /r/Bitcoin, r/Dashpay and other cryptocurrency communities because they focus so much on what is going well but completely ignore real issues, and often downvote people who bring up real issues with their coin, such as issues with fungibility.
This becomes a real issue when the price goes way up and when the community size gets much bigger as less serious people become more prevalent and more vocal.
I think most of us here at r/Monero currently care about having the best cypherpunk cryptocurrency as we realize that is really where cryptocurrencies derive their value/utility.
In order for us to really ensure we keep those ideals, we should always look at our tech critically. We're doing a pretty good job of that now, but as we grow I suspect we'll see less and less of that and more "Moonero!!!" posts.
So, I'd like for us to install a culture of being scientific, skeptical, and rational while we still can. My suggestion is to do a post each Sunday called: Skepticism Sunday.
This can be upvoted and have an open, critical discussion about monero as a technology, it's economics, and so on.
This will be used to mention things such as:
Is fungibility really that important?
Can Monero really scale if it has even less scripting than bitcoin?
Is StringCT + Cryptonote really the best in regards to providing cypherpunk ideals such as privacy, anonymity, trustlessness, and fungibility?
We should do this because every other day we find ourselves looking at the good news that confirms our bias. You don't really benefit from finding additional examples of what agree with your understanding; it isn't going to change your behavior or mind, as you already believe it and are acting accordingly. Finding contradictory evidence, on the other hand, allows you to build a better model of reality and act more rationally, making for a better community, better cryptocurrency, and better personal investments.
One video we should all watch that does a fantastic job at driving home this point is veritasiums "Can you solve this?" Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKA4w2O61Xo..............

Hi Guys, how come Monero coin, dips further and further? When you look at the graph, its trend is going down since the last pump of August 28? It has been 50 days and it still going down?

  You think 8 red weekly candles isn't normal?  Where have you been?  Cheesy Tongue   Monero always drops on good news, and there is a lot of good news lately, that's all.

Am I right?  I do believe 8 red weekly candles is a record.

And the bolded is one of the major reasons I hate that site. It's a massive chore to find comments and posts you want to follow as they get pushed into oblivion. With that being said I think you have a good idea there as it will put a stop to any circle jerks that start forming. Many times I have brought up a problem that I wanted to discuss but have gotten dogpiled by fanboys that don't know Honest discussion of issues or potential issues are a important part of the maturation of new technology. Luckily This community here on BCT is mostly mature enough that we can discuss problems without that sort of reaction as opposed to Reddit where the site is designed to quelch free speech and force the party line on the entire communities participants. It is the epitome of mob rule.

I see no reason the Devs would not give you an official thread for that, but I know most of us that don't use reddit would not participate and I'm sure all the fanbios over there that can only follow and have no thought process of there own will destroy your idea pretty quickly.

I think this is the reason Most coin communities are moving there, it's easy to control the community there as opposed to here, it's really a black eye on the devs that no longer come here and only frequent reddit in my opinion.

You may very well be right, but it is a different eco-system now with the larger Cap and the big players all getting involved. It's more than likely that all these stockbrokers are using their old tricks that are illegal for stock trading but are not for CC. The market seems to be just getting squeezed for every penny they can extract. I guess it's just a side effect of no central authority with a massive pre-mine that can stabilize a coin and keep pushing it up. But I'm just guessing I have no clue where the money is and thats just a side effect of having the most fungible coin on the planet.
