I can agree with that. The Factom Protocol “borrows” this security.

Anyways, re: token supply @housenuts, I believe the insinuation here comes from the ability to fork chains.

Everything looking good today. Glad I didn't sell my Holo when it was down. That's my lottery ticket.

Need btc to crack a few more resistance levels. Would love to see 5k levels a month from now

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Got some LTC around 30 dollars. Would love to see it go on a run. Still have ICX the dumpster fire too. And of course BTC.

The fact these could go to moon or go to zero is actually pretty exciting. Really want to see what happens. Every article I see is either "JP morgan says bitcoin to zero" or "Hedge fund investor sees BTC to 20000 percent".

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

What's encouraging about the recent move is increasing volume, market is waking up but the media is kind of over crypto so not a lot of attention. Even social media is a bit ho hum to the move off the lows, sentiment seems a lot more bearish than I expected. I still think most of these are going to zero but you can't ignore the action either. Interesting how they collectively bottomed a week before global equity markets did.

Some reference points on the recent lows (priced on GDAX):
BTC 12/15/18 $3130
ETH 12/14/18 $80.65
LTC 12/13/18 $22.20
BCH 12/15/18 $73.25
ETC 12/6/18 $3.20

Chainlink doesn't need to be shilled. It's the network usage will make the price skyrocket like ETH. The ICO you needed 300 ETH to get in. So it wasn't for regular joes to invest in. 4chan figured out this is the next thing. Crypto isn't even real life because you can't get real life data on and off the Blockchain in a dectralized manner. Chainlink is the decentraliZed oracle that solves crypto not being real life.

Just go to biz twice a day for the next week. You will never not see 2-3 threads going. It's been that way for over a year now. EVERY single day

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Damn LTC for $22 is a sick double in 2 mths if you went in.

Not like a loaded up on binanace coin but it has held its value given the market conditions imo.

Also ETH almost a double too.

Tapatalk building their rewards system on EOS.

Some time I'll come write a post-mortem about telling you guys to get involved in EOS gambling. tl;dr, i was right in the short term. it rained money for awhile. medium term, it all came crashing down. long term -- we'll see. poker is looking solid.

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Only profitable move I have made past year was loading up on BNB. Think they will continue to pump, CZ is sharp and having other erc20 crap move on to the Binance Chain will only make BNB more valuable.

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Nice pumps. My worst bag left:dbc pumped 30% while nothing is happening possibly even worse some tokens unlocked and diluted even more the value.

DBC, good times, I had 6 figures of that worthless nonsense at the peak of the bubble

What a time that was to be alive

Why in the world do you still have a bag?

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Time to start accumulating your fav **** coin! By the time next bull market comes it will be too late!!

Who's buying what?

Tell me if I'm making a big mistake buying these **** coins
Ethos
ICX
WanChain

I'm also building a position for BTC and ETH and a couple more ****coins that I think will do well.

All this won't happen until next 2021 and later.

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Ethos is worthless. The company might succeed but hoping for the token to have any value from anything but pump and dump is very naive at this point.
At this point it's like ripple they could have a valuable company but without them the token will be worthless and nothing force them to make the token valuable past ico.
Their wallet is pointless they still don't have segwit support and no ln support in sight. You have to bank on eth success and then for Ethos not to suck ass and make the token useful. That's a lot of if.

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Why bank on Ethereum's success?

I guess you are not impressed with their whole infrastructure "Bedrock" or them joining forces with Voyager?

In my opinion they have time, probably at least another year, perhaps 2 before we see the next BTC run. I don't want to write them off so soon. They are working hard to build a product, while many projects are either dead or gone broke. Lets not forget that even if they are still not finished, it still doesn't even matter, as we still need a user-base, we still need the masses to join and they might not join within a few years, it's my best guess that it will take another 10 years.

In my opinion even if they still suck ass (according to you) just the fact of bull market, should see most **** coins with even a hint of usability or utility shoot up massively.

As to your point regarding Ethos worthless and whether it might succeed or not, that pretty much goes for 99% of the coins right now. And not all coins are created equally, many are doing nothing or gone broke, Ethos is at least 1 of the projects that is constantly buidling their project, that has to stand for something, many projects are dead and just **** p/d but some are working hard during this bear market, it's those gems you have to find imo.

You either believe Crypto is the future or you don't. If Crypto fails (highly unlikely imo) then they all fail, if Crypto is indeed adopted by the masses, then many projects will be a success.

Name me some projects you think will thrive once Crypto is more mainstream.

Re: Virtual Currency - Alt Coin Discussion Thread

Right now I have btc ltc Ada. A bit of bnb and some dbc left.
I missed on Stellar because I was lazy.
I'll convert 2/3 of my Ada back to btc and possibly all when they hit coinbase. I'm curious about pos and cardano isn't cutting corner unlike eth that can **** up anytime as they did in the past.
Right now I think btc is so much better than anything else that buying some alts is not worth it. Ltc is OK as bitcoin mainchain can still blow-up and ltc should handle that kind of events plus they ll add features much faster than btc and could pump hard.
Only other coin I'm considering is monero because they are working on l2 ln compatible while having a super solid l1.
I d rather buy some dogecoin before everything else.
