"time and time again, by staying on past the use-by date"

Well each one teach one.  IMZ may have formulated a fundamental LAW of CRYPTO here.

I'm completely in shock how far and deep some projects can sink after rising so high in the charts and public eye.

I've spent buckets on what I thought were well oiled machines.  

Then small change on risky outer limit range networks. And learned that with a modicum of effort a few folks can keep the lights on.  DIY stage.  Self reliance.

The major projects, once the captain abandons the ship, very few stay a float.  Because noone knows how to maintain the basics, they just bought a ticket on voyage 'get rich / no effort'.    

UNO @ $1.  Bothers me not.  Because I know the numbers, it is still a great product, and even though no one knows this basic FACT, it is fundamental to the greater BTC ecology.  We are creating a wing of the BTC beast called 'store of value'.  And I reckon (since STEEM has this as part of their platform), the general IQ will start to pick up the idea.  But beast BTC has run into hazardous territory by destroying the secondary networks attached to it.  This includes silly little projects like p$ or maza, because they facilitate a second-life market for retired mining equipment, that the industry rapidly burns through.  They also need store houses to house $15-$20 B, within the greater SHA256 network.

So back to the DIY stage.

1. I think the current team can keep the network healthy and growing for at least +10 months.
2. under a buck UNO is appealing to outside spectators. perhaps they'll take a LONG position of half a dozen kilos.
3. the resistance is feather light, +100% gains/-50% losses, every 30-60 days ... already organic and visible.
4. the magic of UNO @ $1ish - dead simple marked to market calculating

EDIT: I note that I posed this question when Uno was fifty bucks short of an 0009 handle on C-Cex, and the fate of the Cryptsy coin remained unknown. My goal was to gain price stability as a precursor to maintaining volume (through an OTC program). But today, 8/3/17, the '#FUKLIQUIDTY' perspective has Uno in Coinmarketcap's low-volume penalty box.


‘My wild guess (short version) is that Uno’s price could drop another 50-70%, and will then either stabilize, or you will slip go down the gurgler.’
Me, six months ago, in a post above.


Unobtanium’s price has now been declining for over a year and a half. Its merchant activity and development is practically nil. Now, there are other factors, positive and negative; but I want to think out loud here:

the prevailing problem IMHO is that just being ‘rare’ has been used as an excuse for doing nothing.

‘rare’: ‘not often seen or found, and therefore admired or valued very much’ [http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/rare ]

You’ll grant me that there’s a problem here. That is, it’s hard to claim Uno is ‘rare’ if there are consistently more sold than bought.

And here’s a related fact: members of communities stubbornly ignore the fact that, when a crypto has fallen as low as Uno, the market cap is indicative of nothing much at all. Us IndiaMikeZulu guys have thoroughly proven this as a theoretical exercise: you ‘drop’ a tiny amount of coin into an illiquid market, and tens of thousands of dollars disappears from the market cap (‘cause it wasn’t really there in the first place . . . ).

Now a definition of ‘bagholderism’:

bagholders are, logically enough, those who stick with the community; and bagholderism is – it’s clearly present in the Uno ANN thread at present – the stubborn conviction that (a) the crypto has some ‘real’ value that is higher than its present value (as indicated by the market cap . . . ), and (b) that all we have to do is wait, and the price will  . . . eventually . . . rise.

The difficulty here, though, is that any one of us long-timers, if we were analyzing another crypto, would immediately recognize the signs of bagholderism, and be warned off: ‘Price so low!! Great buying opportunity!!’

So, here’s my pitch: rather than advocate a full-on sell-to-collapse-the-price initiative, I’m gonna call for a half measure, and of course it relies on (Good luck with this one, Mark . . . ) the bagholders really appreciating the fact that the Uno they hold is very likely to end up being worth nothing, as has been the case with hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of cryptos before us:

Guys, you can't reasonably assume your Uno is worth what you (or I) paid for it!

I propose that members of the community communicate by PM; decide upon some number of Uno that they’re willing to sacrifice; and then sell those willy nilly, to drive the price solidly under 0.000~. Heck, I’m a dirt-poor disability pensioner, and I’ll chuck in a hundred.

Why would anyone propose such a move?

Glad you asked!! Instead of the death dwindle continuing, wearing away at our psyches as we wonder if there’s ever gonna be a bottom at which folks start saying, ‘What? Well over a thou Uno for one Bitcoin!? Yeh, I’m up for that!’ we end the waiting ourselves. Bam! Here we are!!

Finally, I ask readers to go and check some All charts on CMC. Many and many a crypto has had sudden price-drops of 30-50%; so, in a year or two from now, looking back, we’ll see the ‘price-point’ at which Uno stopped going down, and either went up, or began its life anew as a high-volume instrument that actually ‘stores value’; but that final dip will be just a half a centimeter of down at the end of a meter of down – basically indistinguishable.

Yes, value is a relative thing. 

I don't know if the price will go up or down or if I will be rewarded for my stubbornness.

It has been a tough slog down and there's probably not too much more I can absorb at this price (which is expensively cheap).

Though it would not take much to move the price up, holding it there is tiring, like swimming against a rip tide.

A lot of Uno has traded hands at .001, so to push it up to .002 would probably meet a lot of resistance now.

And all the while the Cryptsy Uno just hangs over my head.

People who don't want to be in UNO should sell their UNO.  But I am going to stay a stubborn bagholder.

‘Vapour Cap’: my suggestion that folks collapse Uno’s price stretched my ethics to the limit. It seems like manipulation. But it’s not. As IT folk understand ‘vapour ware,’ so crypto folk should understand ‘vapour cap.’

So, apart from the indefensibility of claims of ‘store of value’ for a crypto whose price has dropped 90% in the second half of its life, the demonstrable fact is that the market cap is ‘vapour.’ Uno’s ‘real’ price – putting aside recent divestment volume/the ‘lift’ volume of recent days – is far lower than the stats suggest. So ‘collapsing’ Uno’s price is no more unscrupulous than stomping on a floor board to see if it’s solid.

Just stopped by the off topic thread to say hello.

Nothing really too off topic to contribute today.

I like ice cream.

Also...

UNO markets are active again on Cryptopia. Lets make the most of them.

Is it possible to influence all this if you are robbed or have been cheated by you? I thought that if all the transactions that occur with Bitcoin are somewhat wrong, then you can dispose of your money.
