oh please come back TPTB_need_war, please come back!  it's been almost 12h and you are nowhere to be seen?

was i right?  were you here just to troll little ol' cypherdoc with all your bullshit, obfuscation, hubris, and narcissism?  that would be quite flattering.  it couldn't be THAT easy to get rid of you by me putting you on Ignore?  could it?  i need you to keep pushing the thread to the top of the forum to get views.  you've contributed greatly to it's popularity and my message of Bitcoin UP!

you need to come back or else it will be very bad for all your fellow mini-trolls like marcus, iCE, tvbcof, kazuki, & the other Monero and 1MB pimps.  that's b/c my head will grow so big and my arrogance so large knowing i'm that important that it will be sufferably intolerable for them.  b/c they love this thread and can't stay away.  seriously:

You are more spot-on than you might realize.  A good part of what draws me to this thread is indeed watching your head swell.  I bet you are as surprised as I am that there was sufficient pressure for your head to achieve the dimensions it has, and more than that, the native abilities which your mind has to draw in the following.

I strongly encourage lurkers who are not yet 'found out' to add to this pressure because the resulting display is very amusing.

I think this makes us about even: you were a few months before me in shifting from silver to BTC, and I was a little bit before you in the transition from BTC to Monero.

Is there any reasoning backing up your decision? I'd love to start such a discussion if you don't mind. Smiley

well, buried throughout all TPTB_need_war's bullshit is quite a bit of back and forth regarding Monero.  my problem with it is pretty much as rocks outlined.  it's an entirely new protocol.  that by itself is not necessarily the  problem but it is for network effects and confidence for a new form of money, imo.  for instance, Bitcoin is open source and supposed to be adaptable to changing conditions, especially those hostile, so we've been told.  if it fails to adapt to a threat like the 1MB choking of tx's then it cannot adapt and grow and will fail as a new form of money, imo.  that's b/c it is unacceptable for the current network of investors who have stored their coins in cold storage to be expected to dig them out and transfer them to a totally new money on a different protocol like Monero.  that would cause huge losses for us while huge gains for the early Monero adopters. great for them, horrible for us.  in that scenario, i consider cryptocurrencies to be a failure as i would conclude that they are all then a form of Ponzi scheme.  that doesn't mean it won't happen though but is the reason for the extreme resistance to it's adoption from the economic majority who are currently invested in Bitcoin.

and also for the constant pimping of Monero you see here in this thread.

I understand; nevertheless, don't you think there will be another usable cryptocurrency apart from BTC? I don't support XMR will be it (even though I already have a position that certifies my curiosity and will hopefully gratify my early confidence), but I really want to know, BTC is all you have afaic crypto?

there's this whole concept of a network effect which is no stronger than in that of money.  money, after all, is supposed to be the most liquid of all "assets", a bearer instrument, as some like to call it.  no counterparty required, all debts settled in it.

for thousands of years there really was just one worldwide money; gold.  maybe silver to a degree.  then came fiat, but only since 1971 purely.  the USD has been the reserve currency since Bretton Woods in 1948 but we fully depegged from gold in 1971.  the USD has been used as a settlement currency and for reserve worldwide ever since.  the problem with that is that the central banks have taken advantage of this situation to allow massive debt bubbles to arise by facilitating bailouts for corrupt banks who have gone out and leveraged up well beyond what has historically been considered safe at 10:1.  

so enter Bitcoin.  b/c it was derived from the internet, by the internet, and for the internet, it will become a global money, as it already seems to have occurred.  that is a good thing and will bring significant efficiencies and opportunities for all those who have access to the internet and smartphones.  there is no reason why Bitcoin cannot continue to fulfill those goals or ideals.  

Monero folk will tell you we need more anonymity.  sure, i'd like more but i think Bitcoin gives enough.  unless one can attach a human identity to each address in a linear sequence you can never be sure you can tie the ends to each other of say a 5 address sequence.   you might infer it but you'd have to do some investigative work which police can do if suspicious.  that's enough anonymity for the ordinary user not doing anything wrong.

in short, Bitcoin should be able to provide everything for everyone.  that's my opinion at least.

The more competition the better, I did mine some XMR early so all this monero pumping just makes me feel good. In my book, the winner is the one with the most utility the biggest boost to utility is the number of end points in the network. The network that will grow the fastest will be the one with the most utility.

So at this time it's Bitcoin hat has the most utility, alts aren't a threat, there will be hacks that can leverage that network, there will be investment opportunities and price growth in alts but for now as I see it, it's Bitcoin, I've diversified my crypto investment but for the most part I've just helped distributed bitcoin to the late stage innovators at my experience - on the upside its growing the Bitcoin network.

There you go. A rational individual (investor) with this set of beliefs would hedge. If you don't, there is something other than a rational decision making process going on. No refutation of this is possible. For the logic of hedging to be incorrect you would have to be 100% sure that Bitcoin is the Eternal One True and Only Coin, which you apparently are not (see above). If you had that unquestioning faith, fair enough, but since you don't, then not hedging is just a mistake.
