Right. If litecoin dropped 3 places, do you think it would climb back up? liquidity itself is a qualifying strength and loss of it is a weakness, whether the market is being rational or not.

WTF with the price?

Major support at 150000 satoshis pulled.

Monero is behind BitcoinDark in market cap. Check www.coinmarketcap.com

Behind in price does not equal being behind.

It's still good to look at to keep us honest, though, regardless of whatever we *think* our long term fundamental advantages are. Monero definitely has a perception problem from many investors' points of view at the moment.
I can understand your sentiment, but I ask:

How can you single-handedly perceive that many investors' points of view reflect a problem with Monero's perception?

Not sure who is running forum.monero.cc, but I am still unable to login.  Resetting the password does me no good.

Any plans about some XMR marketing moves?
Price is still funny, and now it's already for a long time.
from ~2$ to ~0.5$  Undecided
the protocol of monero is obviously promising and the price will be at 0.0026BTC  in a short time.we trust it is the NO. 1 in anon fields.

- This repeated price discussion (incl. negative interpretations) are always brought up from random accounts, outside of the XMR community or the small group of long-time trusted and respected altcoin posters, know-how carriers and opinion leaders.

- After reading like 10 posts from him. I figured out, that the account "jehst", is either doing some kind of advanced trolling (act) or is just a very bad poster.
Who is only able to produce stupid claims, wrong arguments, while showing no kind of intelligence, know-how or research (which leads to more unrelevant questions and statements, time wastement, misinformation of people, who try to learn and understand something in these threads, ...)

One way or another his account should be ignored by everybody. I add him now to my ignore list.

Anyway, no need to be so harsh in your words.

I´d like to buy some more, as mining sucks (I run CPU miner on my i7 most of the day while working and during the night I also run GPU miner on R280x to keep my room heat) but Bittrex market is disabled ATM.. Anybody knows what is going on?

I've been involved in Monero for a short time so I don't know everything. What factually incorrect statements I've made have been redacted with the helpful guidance of others. I thank everyone for their patience and honesty.

If any one of the core devs asks me to stop posting, I will not post again in this thread.

I ask readers to embrace newcomers with patience. Put yourself in the position of one who never followed altcoins and never wanted anything to do with altcoins. Learning about the Cryptonote family alone and its long, varied history is almost overwhelming.

If you've been living and breathing alts for years, everything must be so much clearer.

Yeah, it's exactly like this. Many coins are attacked by paid trolls, so legit newcomers are treated badly. And this turns them away and the trolls achieve their objective in weakening a coin.

In the CryptoKingdom game, there are no trolls so everyone can just play without interruption. It's quite nice. I bet you could also get hooked if I gave you the starting capital 10 XMR, required to buy your first house!  Grin

Many in the old guard are quite hurt now. They believed in Monero so much as to throw the risk management out of the window in investing.

Some stuff is progressing more slowly than anticipated and Bitcoin price is not at $5,000 as it "should" be. Wealth is decimated and feelings also.

A newcomer can now make incredible bargains. When I started in May, the price was between 0.002-0.010 and volumes were so small that acquiring a BTC100 stash took several weeks. At these prices, not only is BTC100 much less, also you get more XMR  Cheesy

I see no reason to ask you to stop posting.

Your comments have been substantive. As you say, you haven't always gotten everything right but you seem to be trying to understand the coin, both the good and the bad. Even negative views (and I'm not saying your views are overall negative) are welcome if they are thoughtful and not obnoxious.

Welcome, and please excuse the thick skin we can exhibit at times. All coins are attacked by shills and trolls and this one has been attacked very harshly and repeatedly. If you understand where we have come from, you can perhaps understand some of the impatience and frustration better. It isn't personal.

This.

There are a considerable amount of new posters here. This is new blood flowing into our community. This is proof monero is alive and well.

The old(and getting-old)timers are so dismayed about the price that we don't even care about price anymore. (Bring it on bitches  Tongue)

But, it's only natural for these new members to talk price. Everyone remembers what this and related threads were like when we went sub 20k.

Anyways,

Last 24 hours 120k Moneros was traded. That can be compared with best days. When price was 3 times higher that was 500 btc.

But no matter the price and reward decreasing, Hash rate is still over 15 MH/s, what is more than half of the maximum ever.

After seeing emission rate, everyone was able to see that there was tiny chance that Monero would gain nice price till this end of year and those low chance was for long time actually on sight. But then also it was seen there is tiny chance that price would not be much higher at end of next year. At some point next year it will just happen the Monero hunger. When? Who knows.

I would personally love a (temptative) development road map. Doesn't need to be very precise, but I am sure the devs have some rough goals in terms of timing, and it would be very positive to know them.

Most, if not all "Roadmaps" by coins so far have been nothing but promises; we aren't a fan of that.
The missives state what we work on and also what comes next, giving timelines helps no one.

I didn't mean the usual "Pump roadmap" you can see in most of the alts. I hope you're not fan of that, neither I am.
But something much more general would be useful, here I disagree with you that it helps no one.
If we want an economy to build around, boosted by technical projects, there got to be a little bit of info for them, even if completely indicative. For instance knowing a rough schedule for the multisig implementation is useful to develop services that might use it. A rough schedule can be just "probably closer to 6 months than to 2 months".
The community is smart enough to know it's all temptative, you shouldn't be scared to say what are your feelings. The core team cannot develop an entire ecosystem, you got to give a minimal info to potential innovators around you at one point.

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

Big thanks to all responsible for mymonero.com. It's a great service for the community.

One question though:

If for some reason mymonero.com stops working, what would be the procedure for importing private key into simplewallet ? I guess private key is called "spend" key in mymonero.com ? Also there is "view" key. What is that?

Put your Spend, View, and Public key in an encrypted document with a strong password. The view key allows you to let someone else view your balance without giving them your spend key. Cryptography is cool.
