Hey folks... it's me, yeah I'm back after vanishing so long ago LOL

Just wanted to pop in and make a post today on the bitcoin white paper's official 10th Birthday... posting in this thread just because overall this thread has always been the place I posted the most in the last several years (hopefully mods won't delete it as off topic?)

Wanted to say also that seems to me today at ten years into this great experiment, and guessing it might take something like twenty years for crypto to really take over as the real new global currency, a little perspective we are about half way to it being all said and done, either total failure or global dominance.

I myself got into this stuff only about 5-ish years ago so I guess I'm personally "halfway thru the halfway", seems like a million years ago LOL

But... yeah... well... that's about it.  Hope y'all doin' well out there.  I'm kinda laying low "out" of day to day worry on all the cryptoshit these days but still hangin' in there for this stuff to have all been actually worthwhile, in the end.

Ciao for Now, bitches!  LOL  Grin  

P.S. Wow... COOL!!!  Looks like my post triggered the top post on the 2000th page!!!  Cheesy

Great see you posting again!

Monero is my favorite project.No one understands the value of Monero.It will be understood in the future how precious privacy is.

What's so special about him? There are many projects with complete anonymity and now they are leaving even more. Then what is the beauty of this project, why do you highlight it to the fore? I saw projects better than Monero.

Bullshit. And, who is him?

I really wonder monero seems so silent throughout the bearish season. While other major cryptos still on the radar, monero seems to be out from it already even if it is still having a good cap and price. I believe that once the bullish season starts, monero will be listed on the top 10 again.

It already is?

It's been that way for weeks (a month or more, I believe).

Do you even follow anything or you are just commenting for the sake. Monero is currently number 10 on the ranks. XMR is pretty solid, it will stand the test of time

Good to see you back - and well done for being top of page 2000.

Surely that's a good omen - stick around, the bear market should be over before too long.


>>> Surely that's a good omen...

Yes it could be a good omen, agreed... but don't call me Shirley.  Grin    --    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KM2K7sV-K74


>>> ... stick around, the bear market should be over before too long.

Indeed what goes up must come down and (maybe still?) what goes down must come up again, um... we hope?  LOL

But yah okay sure I'll bite if anyone else wants to take a stab at it too: "WHEN" will this current BEAR cycle finally bottom out, and WHERE will it be?

My best guess at the moment is we got probably about another 50% drop left, i.e. somewhere around BTC like $2500, BCH like $250, XMR like $50-ish.

And it'll take from now till somewhere around like next spring, early summer, when all the final capitulation, wailing, rending-of-garments, and gnashing-of-teeth will all be finally over with.

Around then things will *finally* start turning around.

Then we'll be back to new ATH mania hysteria "crypto is *back*, baby!" sometime approx around the next Halvening Time and the year or so afterwards.

This last "cycle" was the approx $1000-to-$10,000 ten-bagger run (although it hugely overshot to $20K)

The cycle before that was the approx $100-to-$1000 run.

The cycle before THAT was the early-days $10-to-$100 run (which nobody except original cypherpunks usenet geek nerds were aware of).

SO this next coming cycle ten-bagger will be $10,000-to-$100,000 run, second-to-LAST of what's possible.

Only the FINAL possible ten-bagger of $100,000-to-$1,000,000 might not actually happen, in my opinion.

And IF it does happen it'll take a shit ton of much longer TIME to play out... like maybe a decade.

So, really bottom line?

ALL YOU FOLKS WHO MAYBE MISSED OUT ON A CRYPTO GET-RICH TEN-BAGGER RUN... PAY ATTENTION.

Ya got maybe ONE CHANCE LEFT, coming soon.

Git yer shit tagether and lined up ready ta hit da ground runnin'... Real Soon Now.

Ya got a few months to maybe a year to prepare from now.

Don't mind him.  He's been toking a lot of weed nonstop since March.  Cheesy  He prolly even thinks BTC is still trading around 10k USD or something.  Lololol.

It is definitely a year.  I mean yes price of Monero or BTC can be double as now in a year, but buying then should still give you huge profit.

Yes, this is all realistic and I don't disagree (I think we could possibly hit worse lows in Jan).  

But... since when did Bitcoin (or crypto in general) fail to surprise us?  Let's look at the BTC market (more than half of the entire market) and assume we will be swept along with it, since Monero is easily one of the better coins, arguably no. 2.

FACTS:

1. There are simply less BTC available.  And there are more people that feel they ought to have some.
2. It's not just 'us retail investors' anymore.  Huge corporate money is close by, finger on the trigger.
3. People already know when there is a bullrun it can be HUGE.  This is not pipe dreams, it's proven.
4. No one doubts it could be $20K again.  Most think even more is at least 'possible'.
5. The moment it even looks like 'it's happening' the FOMO will be fucking huge (see 1,2.3.4 above).

History never really repeats itself.   But is does rhyme.

And Monero will make history too.  It is too good and hey, the cream always rises.

There were a little over 12 million coins mined by January 1 2014 compared to 17,300,000 currently. Millions of more people are ready to buy and add to the mix institutional players and we could see new ATH's sooner than we think.

That's 3,700,000 Bitcoins left and it will take many years until most of what are remaining are available.

The market volume, in a market that is more than half Bitcoin is over $12,000,000,000 per DAY - and that is with the market at a low.

Half the market is a hell of a lot of cash swishing around - with only a relatively small number of coins remaining, which aren't even mined yet.  So any new demand must buy existing coins.

The price is not remotely sustainable beyond the short term.   In the absence of a black swan event - and ten years after the white paper it doesn't look like we will see one - there is only one conclusion you can make.

Sooner rather than later, this shit's going to blow.

You mentioned black swan, the famous theme originated by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book of the same name.
I read another book of Taleb's recently, "Skin in the Game," in which he mentions the Lindy effect.
According to the Lindy effect, non-perishable, non-biological things that don't have a built-in lifespan limit, such as concepts, religions, and works of literature, have an expected durability roughly equal to the amount of time that they have already survived.  For example, if a Broadway show has played for 100 days, you can expect it to continue playing for about another hundred days.  Or if a book is still being read after 500 years, you can expect it to continue being read 500 years from now.
By this criterion, we can expect Bitcoin to survive about 10 years.

According to the Lindy effect, non-perishable, non-biological things that don't have a built-in lifespan limit, such as concepts, religions, and works of literature, have an expected durability roughly equal to the amount of time that they have already survived.  For example, if a Broadway show has played for 100 days, you can expect it to continue playing for about another hundred days.  Or if a book is still being read after 500 years, you can expect it to continue being read 500 years from now.
By this criterion, we can expect Bitcoin to survive about 10 years.

Yeah but 5 years ago it was finishing now by the same rule. So nonsense really?


Now I feel as if Im floating away, I cant feel all the pressure and I like it this way

In the absence of a black swan event - and ten years after the white paper it doesn't look like we will see one - there is only one conclusion you can make.

Hey, by your logic, which requires taking Lindy totally literally, then Lindy must imply that nothing would ever survive past the first spark of creation.
But you needn't put any effort into accommodating concepts that don't immediately fit some naive expectations, if you don't so wish.
Taleb is worth reading.

Hmm... by your logic, Bitcoin will always be half way through its life.

You might want to read Taleb again, I believe he did suggest factoring in the health of something, too - since as Globbo rightfully says; this simplistic view is logically nonsense.

What Taleb meant is that the longer something survives the more robust, or anti-fragile it tends to become.  But I don't think that meant an eternal half-life.

I think you have the wrong impression of what Bitcoin/Monero is if you are comparing Taleb’s hypothesis on that.  It’s a decentralized effort on the part of people that makes any crypto currencies successful. Bitcoin is still being tormented by the “politics” of Roger Ver & Co. while at the same time continually ignoring all the reasons why... and Monero is still achieving the feat of being able to fund developers on donations on the whim of whether people feel generous or not.

... I wouldn’t chalk up any real cryptocurrency projects to not have any “human-ness” about them at all.

Taleb specifically addresses robustness vs antifragility and they shouldn't be used interchangeably

Robustness is static durability. A concrete wall is more robust than a wooden fence. However, on a long enough timeframe, shocks large enough to destroy both structures are guaranteed and they have no mechanism to adapt, so they will be destroyed. The more robust structure can be expected to last longer. However, small shocks to the system won't improve it's expected duration. Intermittently hitting your concrete wall with a hammer won't improve its life expectancy.

Antifragility is a property of systems that specifically gain from disorder. Antifragile systems must have mechanisms for repair and adaptation. Biological evolution is the example. The culling of unfit individuals from populations by prior shocks to the system actually increases the resilience to unpredictable future stressors. Bone density is another example. Small shocks to your bones through controlled weight lifting will decrease your chances of long bone fractures to larger stressors.

Lindy does not mean bitcoin will only live another 10 years. Nor does it imply a symmetrical relationship (as is being suggested above). The most common example of the Lindy effect is in actuarial life expectancy tables. Your life expectancy is SHORTEST at birth. Every additional year you live, your life expectancy increases. For men in the United States, your life expectancy is 75.4 at birth but increases to 79 at age 50. Saying a male who lives 10 years is expected to live another 10 is a gross misunderstanding of the concept. Lindy simply means the life expectancy grows with time, by some unknown factor. Lindy applies most directly to memes, and has no application to strictly perishable good. Humans are partially perishable, so obviously, the lindy factor is much lower than for art or technology.

By this criterion, we can expect Bitcoin to survive about 10 years.

Taleb mentions, if I recall correctly, the term "at least" / "minimum" for non-perishable stuff. Thus, following the Lindy effect, a non-perishable good that has existed for 10 years is expected to at least exist another 10 years.

Now, I suppose Bitcoin is technically an implementation of something non-perishable, which somewhat weakens the Lindy effect.

BTC going up and XMR going up with it - as are some of the other alts.

Ok, it could be temporary, but it feels pretty bullish after dips and endless sideways motion....  Is it going to be a pleasant November?
