This x100. Many people held margin at around ~$87 on Kraken and while they were right (it went up) took significantly loses due to Ddos attacks/manipulation. I'd advise anyone to be very very careful holding margin.

Re: Ethereum - Blockchain App Platform

Felt bad adding a bit more to my stash yesterday @ $148. Felt better waking up to $175 ETH. Need to buy a Nano S but everywhere I look says they are unavailable or backordered.

Re: Ethereum - Blockchain App Platform

Also this run has been pretty sick. I've been in since ~$7 and bought a lot more chunks all the way up including to ~$87 a few weeks ago. If I had anymore capital I would still buy even at today's market price. I was already pretty much set before from poker but this for me has always been about believing in the value of what Ethereum is creating. It's still at just a fraction of it's potential. Congrats to all the holders or people who have so far got on board who also see something special happening here.. I don't think we're anywhere near the top (and my measurement is in months, not days)

Fwiw, with BTC leaking something about possible hard fork, if you guys are curious about another prediction of mine (search my post history for others) I expect ETH to have a pullback at some point in the next few months and BTC to rally a bit. And then people will once again start to realize BTC isn't in the same sphere to ETH even with the hard fork and ETH will rally once again to eventual higher all time highs*. For new holders here, don't panic sell if you see ETH drop some in the coming weeks. If something is actually a challenge, I'm sure it will be brought up and discussed before it's come to fruition, but for now just zoom out and see all the good news coming up in the next year =). The future looks bright.

Re: Ethereum - Blockchain App Platform

How will someone who is holding only like 25 ETH benefit from POS? Ive read you will need 1000 ETH minimum to lock up and cash in from POS.

Re: Ethereum - Blockchain App Platform

I sent 1 ether from poloniex to my nano s, about 2 hours ago...

it is comfirmed on poloniex, but never has shown in my nano....

is this because amount sent is less then 1, .9865 after gas

or has something gone wrong?

There will be staking pools. Hopefully it will be done in a way you remain the owner of your private key.

they'll be done on smart contracts where you'll essentially lease you eth but no one will be able to remove your eth from the smart contract. you'll be able to call it back with your own key.

Re: Ethereum - Blockchain App Platform

I downloaded Ethereum Wallet and tried to load it with a couple BTC to be converted to ETH. I left it for a while and when I came back it was frozen. Now, every time I try to open it, it just freezes. I've tried this on multiple computers. The BTC has left my other wallet. Has anyone had a problem like this? I'll pay someone if they can get this figured

I feel like this is due to coinbase being down? Probably some fear over uncertainty of why it's down plus eliminating by the the biggest mode of USD - > ETH conversion?

Hah if you think this is crazy you must be near here. Fasten your seat belt and hold on. It's a wild ride.

I figure people on a poker forum can handle the swings better than an average investor.
