Wow thanks for reminding me about this. The truth is that I literally sold the top and was able to increase my purchasing power by almost 3x at 6k, and 6x at 3k. So I decided to buy some corn at 6k.

It must hurt that you tried to make me look bad... and ironically when I wrote that, internally I knew I had to play the long game in order to preserve my wealth & purchasing power.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

If Wright was confirmed as Satoshi, how would that affect your belief in BTC?

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

A true bitcoiner is against turning the true nature of bitcoin, into whats becoming core-centric, commercialized network crap.
Bitcoin was born to get away from that crap of centralist capitalism, and yet stupid people want it to become the same crap as what was available before 2009.

Deburden the bitcoin network. by promoting other networks, altcoins, central services is not a Bitcoiner.

LN is just the same as 0 confirmation on Bitcoin network, instant and same level of trust,

Wouldn't affect my belief in BTC. Would be disappointed it was created by such a douchey troll, but would view bitcoin just the same.

Satoshi's Vision or whatever direction CW wants to take is fine. I'd still follow core and every other respectable person would as well.

Why would you follow core when it's a bastardized, broken, centralized, non-scalable, unimprovable version of what Satoshi had in mind? Just curious.

Because I see that's where the value will acrrue. Not to bitcoin cash, bitcoin gold, bitcoin private, Satoshi vision, or whatever other forked crap is created.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Long term value comes from use case adoption. That is the only thing that can place a permanent bid under the price.

In terms of making money playing pyramids, all the enormous flaws of core tend to become strong benefits to the 1% at the top.

Why would you care ? You have already made your opinion (btc=ponzi) and have no skin in the game - a real shame given your amazing prediction talent.

The market made the choice, for good reasons. It's no surprise you don't undersand why given your comprehension, reasonning and judgement skills - or lack thereof.

No plz go back trading playmoney and trolling elsewhere, since it's the life you've embrassed.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

A Bitcoiner supports Bitcoin network with mining or mining shares.
A ****coiner supports a ****coin node whatever his preferred flavor my be, XRP node, LN node, JPM node or what not crap node (cheap computer)

Lightning transactions are not on chain, so they are therefore not Bitcoin transactions.
So if LN txs are not Bitcoin txs, it follows that ...

Craig is not the coin. The coin is defined by the protocol. Period. Peeps is just peeps.
BTC is playing with fire if Craig is what he claims he is. There is potential of over one million btc to sell and bsv buy as soon as released from trusty hand.

50k call expring dec19 trading at 39$. implied vol is approx 110%, which means that there is about 3-4% chance of this happening

Similarly, the reasons why Bitcoin has a $69 billion market cap aren't that different from the reasons Ethereum and Ripple each individually had double bitcoin's current market cap, despite starting far later.

Ripple has none of what bitcoin has (the "good reasons" you allude to) yet was worth $120 billion.

If you're weren't one of the silliest people in this thread, that would make you stop and think. And agree with me that to first order bitcoin is a ponzi, and to second order a vehicle for illegal and gray market activity. Legitimate use barely rates.

Bitcoin is a ponzi with the biggest mindshare/highest current "legitimacy", the biggest illegal network (including illegal network on-ramp), and the biggest fiat -> bitcoin ecosystem. But these things are irrelevant for determining the final winner.

The final winner in the coin space will be determined by its ability to be used - low cost, fast, globally scalable transactions. Because use puts a bid under a coin while lack of it causes it to decline, and organic use growth will determine the winner.

I really hope you're 18. I'm embarrassed and sad for you otherwise. Your "extremely stupid" post logic was cringeworthy. I wipe the floor with you on all three of those traits.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

I expect a 'tree' model will eventually win out and all Bitcoin forks will fade. I doubt Radix will be the ultimate winner, but it is an example of the direction things will head in.

Privacy coins getting shut off will be a solid sign that crypto has matured to the next level, not sure how many years out this is. Right now you can send 1m USD to Kraken in XMR and get a bankwire the sameday, no questions asked. How sustainable do people really think this is?
