Smh same thing i heard about Doge back in 2016
May 20th 2021
14
umm.. you can do both
May 20th 2021
17
It is an either/or decision. You have $100 to put into one thing
May 20th 2021
18
      you want it to be one way..
May 20th 2021
20
      The options are invest or don't invest, not invest in this or that
May 20th 2021
21
           reminds me of people who say Doge vs Shib!!!
May 20th 2021
22
           You don't "have to" invest in either one. You could choose neither
May 20th 2021
25
                Do you often tell people what they would or wouldn't do?
May 20th 2021
30
                     k
May 20th 2021
32
           The point is most people would never consider betting on a long shot
May 20th 2021
24
                No, the point is you think know me

May 20th 2021
10

May 20th 2021
12
      is the shibatoken.net site not legit?
May 20th 2021

May 20th 2021

Buying. Imagine panic selling during the March 2020 crash
May 20th 2021
29
So is this Shiba Inu coin the current "hot" coin?
May 20th 2021
35
Follow up question: Is Cardano a good buy at $1.80?
May 20th 2021
36
It is but I would wait for a dip
May 20th 2021
39
      i guess i'm asking if it's a quality coin. from what i'm reading
May 20th 2021
43
           it dipped too.. down approx. 20 cents
May 21st 2021
59
don't even touch it. it's a trash meme.
May 20th 2021
38
      lmao.. didn’t they say the same thing about Doge?
May 20th 2021
41
      He's got a halfway point though.
May 20th 2021
45
      nah man, I got a point point. stay away from hype coins.
May 20th 2021
47
      which ones are worth getting into right now?
May 20th 2021
48
      keep your eye on the ERC-1155 standard and what might come
May 20th 2021
51
      It's a half point in that it may not matter to he/me/etc
May 20th 2021
49
           i overstand.
May 20th 2021
50
      its still an “investment”
May 21st 2021
53
           I'm just getting at my psychological framing of it
May 21st 2021
54
           yeah.. its a bit of both
May 21st 2021
58
           I think palantir is a long play. like...a few years.
May 21st 2021
56
                yeah.. not to pat myself on the back but this is the first time
May 21st 2021
57
      and? Doge is a joke coin, this is a joke coin about a joke coin.
May 20th 2021

under 400.

did i go crazy with buying? hell the fuck no, but I did submit paperwork to change my name to Burger King because I WAS FLIPPING left and right.

I've been in the game since 2016. I lost my patience with trying to ride waves, so I set my portfolio about three years ago and just stepped all the way back. I've seen all of this shit before so I'm not pressed. Either I get rich or I make a decently sized sum of capital to do things with. I choose the more likely scenario and leave YOLO plays to everyone else.


I stopped DCA back in 2018.

I feel like a genius.

I mean, really though - you can't ever REALLY time it right. Figure whatever people are happy with they should sell. But I also like casinos more than the stock market so don't listen to me.

3. "killing myself for knowing about all this shit early enough to be a mult..."
In response to Reply # 0
Thu May-20-21 01:30 AM by Cold Truth

  

          

Wlnf of a very minimal investment that was undoubtedly squandered on fast food or movie tickets or some other bullshit.

Several times over.

So that makes me thin...I should take 2-300 bucks over this next week or two and sprinkle it on Shib and Safemoon in hopes one of them reaches a penny and and I can get 50-75K payday.

$100 in SHIB right today gets you a mil if it ever reaches a dime. Minus taxes and fees, that's still a paid off home in a nice area in most of the country.

If it dies out tomorrow, I'm out a $100.

And that's a horrible mentality for investing, so I'll just frame it as gambling and KIM.

Or I'll do nothing and want to hang myself in 5 years when SHIB is $3.62 or some shit, knowing I could have bought ten million of these fucking things for $100 to take a shot at generational wealth.

Then I think, $100 is nothing to lose right now, so why the fuck not?

Then I think... Im nowhere close to where I should be financially to be thinking $100 is nothing to lose, even if that's mote or less true.

Then i think of all the dumb shit i can buy in a month that is more or less a waste of money. I spent $23 taking my son to Wetzels tonight, and i'm thinking about how if the $11.50 of that total that i spent on my food could have bought a million shibs or tnearly twice as many safemoons.

Basically, it makes me think a wide spectrum of thoughts.

Feel the same way about Doge

I 1st heard of it back in 2016

I could easily be on half a mill right now if I bought in a couple hunnid

I probably spent about 1000 on sneakers that year smh

But yea

Its pretty much gambling but the amount of bullshyt I spend $100 bucks or more on

I got about 6 million in shib tokens

Think i spent 120 on it

Fuggit

If it gets to even a Nickle I'm good

If it don't Orwell

My 1st venture into crypto was Cardano a couple months ago and I kick myself for not buying more when i got in at 60 cent

I mean I'm still winning. Its at like 1.70 now and that's on a dip

But I wish I had went in a bit more

I might buy more at the price its at now

It could fuk around and be in the double digits by years end

But who knows

Its all a gamble

I'm basically putting my sneaker money into crypto this year

In response to Reply # 3


  

          

Most people only know doge, eth and bitcoin. Now's the time to buy since everything is on sale.

You're probably at the place where you can lose 100 and not be stressing. I've found the thing that keeps newcomers out this space is the risk of losing money. Not all coins are straight up and down gambles where you either gain 800% or lose all your money.

I got into DOT when it was $2. It was a solid project, so I held it for months. it got up to $30. You don't have to hit a lick every time you invest. If that $100 can get you 30% over time, shit even 10%, it's still better than letting it sit in a bank account with some young ass APR. If you lose $100, then you can live without it.

The odds a probably similar.
And at least that seems legitimate versus some fly by night joke/meme spinoff of a joke/meme cryptocurrency.

You wouldn't consider dropping $100 on some crazy basketball parlay. And you probably wouldn't get mad at yourself if that crazy parlay hit without you putting a bet down.

So why would the mindset change for jokey cryptocurrencies?

I mean yea it is true itc started off as a joke coin

I would be laughing to the bank right now

With shib I wouldn't even need it to reach .50 in 5 years

Also u ain't losing everything in an instant like u do betting on sports

Its volatile as shyt right now but it still has some value even when it dips

In response to Reply # 11


          

always cracks me up when people make it an either this or that situation.

you can lose, win or break even with crypto..

but the key is just holding if it dips instead of panic selling.

You shouldn’t use money you can’t afford to lose.

I’m already invested in IRA, 529, ETF’s and a 401K.. so if this little bit of money is lost it won’t kill me. But if my crypto investments take off.. it could be a nice chunk of change.

Put the $100 in some random crypto or put it into some other longshot bet.

You are assuming the random crypto is the better choice. I think that's a bad assumption.

In response to Reply # 18


  

          

Nested beneath the "invest" option is.... everything there is to invest in.

Those options are then pared down based on your goals, potential returns, risk, cost, your budget, etc.

Your budget will be based on what you can afford, what you can afford or are willing to lose, etc.

It's only "this or that" if... you decide to do this or that, or narrow down your options to the point where that somehow becomes a this/that option, like a single share of two seperate stocks that cost whatever it is you're able to spend.

In this scenario?

You can bet $50 on that longshot game, and you can put $50 in crypto.

But that comes after you've made the invest or don't invest decision.

has to be one or the other because lord knows if you do both the whole world will collapse.

If someone offers you two different bets with terrible odds, you would likely reject both.

If you usually wouldn't gamble, why would you "invest" in something that has gambling payoffs

It's like you're just waiting for your turn to talk.

Moreover, you seem to be more interested in reading my mind than listening to what I have to say.

I know this because you're asking questions I've already answered.

You're also REALLY hung up on this gambling dichotomy, because in your mind, putting money on The Big Game is identical to investing in Crypto.

I'm sure your bet and really like to put money on The Big Game or whateverthefuck, but that doesn't hold the same appeal for everyone else. Even if they're "technically" the same, they're not, if for no other reason than one appeals to me and the other doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish in this discussion, but all you're doing is projecting your own perspectives and thought processes onto other people.

Not even one dollar. They would say it's a crazy bet or a sucker's bet.


But something with similar or worse risk/return tradeoffs (crypto) has people opening up their wallets.

It's like you're just waiting for your turn to talk.

Moreover, you seem to be more interested in reading my mind than listening to what I have to say. You're too busy thinking you know me, my mind, my thoughts, how I make decisions, etc.

Whatever you think you know about people in general, that doesn't always apply to everyone, all the time, under every circumstance.

Stop that shit. It's a really bad way to engage with people, on any discussion.

You're also asking questions I've already answered.

You're also REALLY hung up on this gambling dichotomy, because in your mind, putting money on The Big Game is identical to investing in Crypto.

If you like to put money on The Big Game or whateverthefuck, cool.

That doesn't hold the same appeal for everyone else. Even if they're "technically" the same, they're not, if for no other reason than one appeals to me and the other doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

Anyone who actual knows me- includimg OKP's who know me off site will read what I wrote and laugh because that little bit right there is how my brain processes every decision there is to make. It doesn't really matter what the subject is. Not necessarily to that extent, but I generally run through a similar list of pro/cons.

So my mentality doesn't change with crypto. Given what it is, what that means, etc, it arguably makes it more pronounced because it's life changing, but it doesn't change.

Also, I don't gamble. And despite being a Lakers/NBA fan, I have no interest at all in sports betting.

Mentally, this is more like a lottery ticket.

Sure, I'll buy lottery tickets here and there, join a pool when it reaches ungodly amounts, etc. I just don't drop $100 on lottery tickets. I'll likely wind up putting a little money into it.

But this post was just a list of the different thoughts I think on the subject, and the little scenic path my brains takes on it's way there.

In response to Reply # 3


  

          

I had to step back into my career but I was a toxic pick becuase I had such a massive gap in work history (long stupid story) so I worked retail. This was when I was living in SF...so, you know, rich motherfuckers everywhere.

The store was beneath luxury condos. There was a rich tech asshole who would try to bro down with us during breaks.

Not once, but like, SEV-ER-AL times he would just scream "YA'LL BUY SOME BITCOIN AND THANK ME IN 5 YEARS"

us: what the fuck is he talking about?

also us: yo, why would anybody need digital money? scam. can't truss it.



bitcoin was somewhere between a dollar or 15 or 100 depending.


I'm not salty about it, I just wished I was more informed. Ya figure, living in SF, I had seen soooooo so many start ups come and go, there was no way to know if this was a bet or some hype machine bullshit.

23. "Up $xxx,xxx in Doge"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Own well over 136+ million Shiba Inu token aiming for 500 million by the end of the year. The more coins I buy the more money I make if it hits the $0.00s. If it dips to $20 per 7 million coins around $212 (crypto.com fees) buys 70 million coins. I could exceed 500 million coins easily. Might aim for a billion at that point.

Have some trx, sia, usdt, ethereum, raven, and digibyte.

Only reason I haven't exited Doge is some price predictions have it reaching $2.50 by the end of the year. It hit 75 cents days before Elon's SNL appearance but I couldn't sell because of the 40℅ capital gains tax hit but I can exit right now and win.

74. "Coinbase gave me five 'free' crypto currency types"
In response to Reply # 28


  

          

when I first opened up the account. I put free in quote because to get them transferred to my account, I had to watch and answer some questions in the coinbase app about the different crypto currencies. It was true outside of the current BitCoin that I have. From what I remember, I think Coinbase gives you $5 worth of BitCoin just for opening up the account, but I could be mistaken there.


If there are other crypto currency trading options that give you fee crypto currencies for opening up an account, I'd love for others to let it be known.

In response to Reply # 36


  

          

It was at 2.40 a few days ago so it might be heading there again so that's y I say u could prolly buy now

I personally just try to make a habit of buying at a dip

Yesterday was a fire sale

It dipped down to almost $1

Don't know when or if it'll go down that low again but I would buy a dip. Even if its just 10 cents from when I initially want to purchase

it looks legit. or at least as legit as crypto can get.

it's backed by a good team and it's energy usage is more efficient than bitcoin (which seems to be more and more important).

i have a brokerage account and follow the non-crypto market daily so i totally understand buying on dips. just trying to figure out if $1.80 is a good dip to buy at. seems like it may be.

Every last one of these coins had serious scrutiny until it blew the fuck up.

The numbers are what they are, and I'm essentially deciding on whether to cop a $100 lottery ticket, and I view buying a lottery ticket the way I view paying for entertainment.

It's definitely not an investment IMO. It's a shot in the semi-dark at a time when it's quite possibly in the early stages of a boom period.

But by and large, it's better to just take the time and discipline to learn sound investment strategies.

I'm a grizzled ass believer in crypto. some of it is good, some of it will change the world, most of it is greasy fat finger cash grab trash.

you can definitely make money off of it, but when it comes to joke-y hype shit, I'm off that because...

people are still playing pump and dump games. people are still listening for pump and dump signals.

get in, make your sats, but go in knowing that a group of players have a moment in mind to pull that rug and run - you won't know when it will happen, so have your price point in mind, set up a stop loss and keep it moving.

the use case for semi-fungible assets is yet to be seen, but if this works...interesting things might happen.

I really can't call it because it's all opinion based and I've yet to see a single strong opinion that isnt trying to play an angle.

Essentially...and I hate doing this, do your research and buy things you like. EVERY time I bought off hype, I lost money, every time I bought into something I believe in, I did well.

In response to Reply # 47


  

          

We all know that much, I think.

I think we understand the volatility involved, hence the reason I view it as a lotto ticket, despite there are ways to manage it.

It's obvious that people are playing these markets. We recognize that.

There's a difference between going in viewing it as a serious investment- which is where your point is a full point- and approaching it like a casino, which is where it becomes a half point, because the point your making is one we're already aware of, even if that awareness isn't a sophisticated of the deeper mechanics that drive it.

I hope that makes sense. I'm not discounting your point itself, because it's valid. It's that the mileage of that point varies depending on the approach and understanding the person has going in.

it's why I'm drawing the distinction between a sound investment approach and a gambling approach.

im taking the perspective that more and more and more and more people are getting into investing & crypto thinking it's going to be easy peasy money and not ready to lose, not even 5% of the initial investment.

In response to Reply # 45


          

just may not always be a good one.. lol

like you said below, we know the risk with these cryptos that are less than a penny. That’s what makes them attractive.

but any individual stock that you buy can go up or down..

I’ve been burned by FOMO on a few stocks like Roku and Palantir. I just have to wait them out or say fuck it and eat the loss if they never bounce back.

so yes, these coins are risky af but I know this and didn’t use my kids college funds.

I think gambling and investing are damn near synonymous most times, because one is, essentially, the other to an extent.

Leaning heavier toward one term or another is, for me, a matter of expectation.

I’ve told myself to chill the fuck out and just let these stocks sit until they go green.

when I first started I would eat the loss trying to find the next stock.

For most people just holding is a challenge in itself, and the thought of buying is really difficult. If it were that easy, everyone would be rich. I've never sold during lows, but the typical thoughts are "what if this is actually the one that sends us into another crypto winter for years and have to hold these bags. What if this is a coin that isn't going to survive such a winter (99% of alts die)." And sometimes you just don't buy the right dip, and it dips even further. It really is like trying to catch a falling knife. But this last month has been good if you are a risk taker and want to swing trade when the big 10-20% dips and pumps every week. I've fortunately bought low and don't have to worry much.

watching 5 to 6 figures of "disposable" money disappear in minutes still feels awful. And it's terrifying because you're now considering throwing in additional money while there's blood on the streets, even if the new money is also disposable. Don't get me wrong, I don't ever sell low or FOMO and buy high, but even I hesitate to put in more money with the kind of dips we've been seeing in recent weeks.

some people can’t stop themselves from selling when shit tanks because they are afraid of losing it all even when its disposable income.

I made that mistake a few times but its a great feeling to wait out a dip and see it rebound.

with the little chump change I invested some months ago. The gains I've seen this week or so makes me wish I invested even more when the markets were down about two or so months ago.

The one thing I dislike about the crypto currencies is that is seems all of the different types seem to ride the wave of how well BitCoin is doing. I guess that's just the nature of how dominant BitCoin is in terms of it's ubiquity relative to the other crypto currencies.

The last couple of months really did feel bearish, and buying those dips felt riskier than usual. I can't help but feel like there's some negative correlation between crypto performance and developments regarding COVID.

In response to Reply # 78


  

          

doesn't make you a bit skeptical? That and the fact it isn't tied to some actual use makes me a bit leery.

Good on you and the other folks that are profiting from DOGE though.

In response to Reply # 85


  

          

but I lost some of the gains I had in my other cryptocurrencies with today's very rapid selling off.

I'm hoping the relatively low prices will convince folks to slowly re-invest in the market to bring prices back up.

It looks as if 11:00 AM EST was the floor for the majority of the cryptocurrencies today.

At least for my investments, I've been doing quite well today.

Greedily, I want to see Cardano get back to the $3.00 range it was at earlier this week before the huge multi-currency selloffs occurred. I'm still up just in my Cardano investments since I bought in when Cardano was roughly $1.50 or so per share.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Now's the time. It's up on Coinbase and Binance as we speak.

I already have a small crypto fund running and I rerouted a good portion of it to SHIB.

I'm still going in with a gambler's mentality approach.

If the whole thing tanked, it's not enough to matter in the grand scheme, and I won't miss it.

Conversely, it's enough to be seriously life changing if it ever hits a penny.

The more I thought about it, I realized, this isn't enough to do much of anything for me right today, and we're in a good position financially.

But I'd feel sick to my stomach if I didn't take a gamble on something that cost so little, if this turned out to be yet another train I overlooked or was too lazy/skeptical/cheap to hop on, at a time when the potential loss would hurt the absolute least.

I'm good with it.

Buy ethereum on Coinbase, transfer it to MetaMask, and then swap it for shib.

Of course, I got in right as it stopped going up. Throw in all the fees I had to pay to do all that transferring and converting above and I’m down.

Hopefully this thing isn’t done, smh.

100. "Saitama might be the one right now."
In response to Reply # 0
Wed Sep-29-21 02:14 AM by Cold Truth

  

          

I got 7.5 billion for about $142. I wound up with $102 worth, because it's not currently listed on a major exchange, and I had to buy Ethereum and convert it via uniswap, which has high "gas" fees.

It costs nothing right now.

It has a lot going for it.

https://saitamatoken.com/

-A set roadmap. The site says it's on stage 2, but my understanding is that it should be hitting stage three imminently. It released in June, and surpassed 50k holders this weekend. They also have an upcoming listing on a major exchange, which should be announced soon.Apparently,m there are major names in sports and other entertainment mediums attached to this event.

That has nothing to do with the coin itself, but from a marketing and visibility standpoint, that's a big deal.

-Saitamask wallet coming soon, November 8th or 13th, which coincides with an event and a partnership announcement. As far as I can tell, the wallet itself will function as an exchange all it's own. There's also a focus on financial education as part of the wallet.

-We know who all the devs are. I realize this isn't unique, but it definitely helps with the whole of it. There's a vision, a roadmap, and, as far as I can tell, ambition. This is a meme coin, that isn't at all a meme coin.

I know SHIB has it's own ecosystem, as do others, but by and large this is well laid out, at least to my rudimentary exposure to crypto.

-The coin comes with burn and redistribution features. This is the crazy part.

swiped from the site:

"Passive Income System

2% of every transaction with $SAITAMA is deducted and redistributed to our pool of holders. It means that just by holding it you will see the number of tokens increasing automatically everyday as the community transacts.

Deflationary Currency

An additional 2% of the amount of all transactions is taken out of circulation, meaning that our token supply is constantly shrinking and making your $SAITAMA increase in value with time. We have already started with 49% of the supply burned.

Anti-Whale Trap

Everyone is expected to make profit but we want profit to be for everyone. $SAITAMA is coded in a way that prevents big wallet holders (whales) from trying to manipulate the price in their favour or from dumping the token by selling out. "

I have questions about this last one, but no answers just yet. I need to find out what this means, exactly. I should be able to sell when I want/need.

But I need to clarify what this is, exactly, and how it works.

But the distribution and supply control mechanisms, taken together, is huge. In the two days since I purchased mine, 2,993,922 has been added to my wallet as a result of the redistribution.

That's insane. One thing I heard, but haven't confirmed, is that the distribution you receive increases with the amount you own. Which is mind boggling. You can spend $500 at this point, and just let that shit run.

I think, between the way they've ramped up so quickly already, the wallet, the supply control (does this count as a burn?), redistribution, sheer FOMO from missing out on DOGE and others, along with increased visibility, I'm guessing that we'll see accelerated growth here relative to other coins.

In response to Reply # 100
Thu Sep-30-21 03:44 PM by Cold Truth

  

          

1. Yes, I'm partly sounding the horn for some shit I'm excited about, and definitely want to make sure people are aware at a time when it costs next to nothing to get in.

2. I want to hear from others in this room that are far better educated than I am on the subject of crypto as a whole, who can probably offer a better critical eye than I have. The vast majority of the sources I've found on it are, like me, shouting the positives of it.

But there are some issues.

The total supply is massive, which makes this look like it will take incredibly long to gain any real traction, because the buying has to increase to absurd numbers for the burn to significantly reduce the amount in circulation. I think that slow growth is part of the plan, so that the whales can't come in an monopolize things early. But I could be reading this wrong.

Saitama definitely isn't a get rich quick token or anything of the sort(unless you already got six figures to put in asap)- but it does appear to have "get holy shit! levels of rich seveen to ten years from now, if you get in now" appeal to it IMO.

I have found a solid YT channel (Saitama Stacker) that does take a measured, critical approach to talking about it.

We're years away from realistically even talking about a penny- but there do seem to be factors that can help accelerate that growth.

In response to Reply # 102


  

          

What's the scam?

I can't find a single indicator of that.

They have a product in development with schrduled release date, a roadmap with specific goals, etc.

I was able to a single reddit post where someone said some random billionaire told him to buy Saitama over a video game, and the immediate responses of "scam" by other reddit posters, and that post changed course as the token took root.

There's no indication that there's anything illegitimate about it, as far as I can tell.

So I'd like to know what your basis is for callimg it a scam

109. "here's why I'm not fucking with it"
In response to Reply # 104


  

          

Anybody can make a whitepaper and set goals and shit. That doesn't move me.

After looking at the white paper, only thing I see is that holders get 2% from every transaction. That's a red flag for me. The only value in this coin is to get other people to buy so the bag holders can collect.

They plan on opening a storefront to buy goods and services? I can already do that. Why is this marketplace any different? what goods are they selling that I can't get anywhere else?

A platform to build NFTs? I can already do that on a more established platform. Why should I have to wait for them?

Edutainment? I can just go to decrypt.co to learn about Crypto.


All that before I even checked to see how the coins are currently distributed and if the devs are doxxed.

It's crypto so there's always a chance to make money off of other people's naivete, but I'm good of this.

Can you explain how you arrived at the conclusion that this is the "only" value?

>They plan on opening a storefront to buy goods and services? I
>can already do that. Why is this marketplace any different?

Why does it need to be "different" to be useful?

>what goods are they selling that I can't get anywhere else?

Why by from Target when you can get the same thing at WalMart?

I'm sorry, but these aren't much in terms of objections.

>A platform to build NFTs? I can already do that on a more
>established platform. Why should I have to wait for them?

Again, not much of an actual objection to the coin itself. All you've said so far, amounts to, "I have other options for the same things", but they don't really say anything about any perceived flaws in the coin or the plan.

Which is fine, if that's all you're saying.

>All that before I even checked to see how the coins are
>currently distributed and if the devs are doxxed.

The devs are fully doxxed.

103. "Saw a fairly interesting reference to MiamiCoin on DrudgeReport earlier ..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This isn't the article I saw linked, but it is fairly interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about the electricity usage that'll come with Florida potentially becoming a center for cryto-mining, but it is what it is I suppose in terms of folks wanting to profit.

link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/09/30/crypto-miamicoin/

swipe:

Crypto tax: ‘MiamiCoin’ has made the city $7 million so far, a potential game-changer for revenue collection


The South Florida city is the first municipality to accept cryptocurrency contributions through CityCoins, which the mayor says may one day take the place of taxes

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has a plan to transform the city into the world’s “cryptocurrency innovation hub,” and one of the outcomes, he claims, could be a metropolis free from taxes.

The lofty idea is the byproduct of a cooperation with CityCoins, a nonprofit and opensource protocol that allows people to hold and trade cryptocurrency representing a stake in a municipality. By running software on their personal computers, CityCoins’ users mint new tokens and earn a percentage of the cryptocurrency they create. A computer program automatically allocates 30 percent of the currency to a select city, while users get the other 70 percent.

Since CityCoins unveiled “MiamiCoin” in August, the protocol has sent about $7.1 million to Miami. (City commissioners agreed to accept the donations on Sept. 13.)

While the program is still in its infancy, Suarez (R) estimates the effort could generate as much as $60 million for Miami over the next year and ultimately “revolutionize” how the city funds programs that address poverty and other societal issues.

“When you think about the possibility of being able to run a government without the citizens having to pay taxes. That’s incredible,” Suarez said, adding that the partnership creates a “counternarrative” to the idea that city programs require raising taxes or “private sector philanthropy.”

CityCoins fits snugly into Suarez’s overall direction in Miami, as a business-friendly environment welcoming tech companies that want to benefit from warm weather and low state taxes. The mayor says he is having discussions with mining companies about setting up operations near a South Florida power plant and ultimately wants to rebrand the city from a travel destination to a technology hub.

Over the past year, several financial and tech firms set up offices in the city, including Goldman Sachs, SoftBank and Blackstone, according to Suarez. In June, the crypto wallet Blockchain.com announced it was moving its headquarters from New York City to Miami, citing the city’s “welcoming regulatory environment serving as a hotbed of crypto innovation,” the company revealed in a news release. That same month, the stock-trading platform eToro announced plans to establish offices in the city.

Miami is attempting to integrate cryptocurrency into city government. According to Suarez, it is exploring allowing city employees to get paid in bitcoin and allowing residents to pay some fees and taxes in bitcoin. The city held the world’s largest bitcoin conference in June for thousands of enthusiasts.

CityCoins describes itself as more of a collective than a business. It’s the brainchild of the platform’s community leader, Patrick Stanley, who says CityCoins’ strategy is guided by cryptocurrency enthusiasts online who communicate on the chat platform Discord and vote on what’s next.

CityCoins is a community "that is trying to bring something into existence, that didn’t exist before, for the betterment of all citizens in the respective cities,” Stanley said.

Cryptocurrencies are pieces of digital code that allow people to buy, sell and build wealth. Miners create new cryptocurrencies by running software on networks of computers, while the code works to solve mathematical problems adding the transactions to a public ledger, known as a blockchain. New tokens are awarded in a lottery-like system to people running the software.

MiamiCoin relies on a base cryptocurrency called Stacks. As miners mint Stacks and forward the tokens into CityCoins, MiamiCoins are generated. Miners who send the most Stacks have the best chances of being awarded new MiamiCoins.

People interested in buying or trading MiamiCoin can find it on the crypto exchange Okcoin, where the token traded for just over two cents ($0.026) this week.

The tokens can be bought or mined by people wanting to support Miami, and they gain value if the demand is higher than the supply. In a world where an unlimited number of new cryptocurrencies are popping up, CityCoin’s launch benefits from increasing attention to its effort, potentially increasing the value of the currency.

“It’s a way of getting people to mine your currency as opposed to the hundreds of others out there,” said David Sacco, an economics professor at the University of New Haven.

But Miami’s vote to accept the tokens as contributions was a pivotal moment for the cryptocurrency industry, which is seeking to gain momentum and utility among broader society as it faces increased scrutiny from regulators. Lawmakers have voiced concern over what happens when shadowy financial instruments, not subject to normal oversight vehicles, grow without control of regulators.

Miami’s reserve wallet automatically converts deposited tokens into U.S. dollars, with city officials deciding when to cash out. Anyone can download MiamiCoin software to compete for rewards, which creates legal considerations for the city, experts say.

“One thing to consider is who you are accepting donations from,” said Max Dilendorf, a New York attorney at Zahn Law Group who focuses on digital securities. “I could be a world criminal sitting somewhere in Iraq or in Russia and have a frontman making a donation through MiamiCoin.”

The city is not spending the money for six months to insulate itself from fraud and misuse and to give city officials time to respond if issues arise, according to Suarez. “There are scenarios under which we would pull back,” the mayor said. “What if there’s some fraud involved, or if people sue? We have no reason to believe that is happening. But anything can happen. And we want to be careful.”

Miami’s high-profile attempts to attract cryptocurrency investment drew CityCoins, and there’s now competition among cities to create similar partnerships, Stanley said.

San Francisco, an epicenter of the tech industry, is probably next to get a CityCoins token, according to CityCoins website, which has a tool that lets people vote for where to show up next.

“The community is actively chatting online,” Stanley said. “Do we launch in New York, do we launch in Austin, San Francisco, Singapore or Seoul.”

As long as you dont sell within a year and the value of your investment isn't too high to raise red flags.

What value is being created to justify the increase in price? I don't gamble and this looks a lot like gambling to me.

I'm not talking shit and I damn sure ain't trynna rain on anyone's parade. I'm seriously asking...

Where is the value coming from?

... generated from people buying in and special projects attached to the coin/token. For example carma coin has giveaways. The more people buy in the more giveaways but this sentence reads like a scam.

Safemoon already made people millionaires and the momentum came from their app that's also a wallet for other crypto.

113. "That depends on the currency"
In response to Reply # 108


          

Bitcoin was originally created to be a fiat currency that isn’t controlled by a central authority. Bitcoins value is set by all of the participants in its network and it has certain characteristics that can make it an attractive place to store value away from centrally controlled fiat currencies like the dollar.

Most centrally controlled currencies are setup to have at least mild inflation… the fact that your dollar will be able to purchase less in the future motivates many people to invest into businesses and assets that will grow in value over time (hopefully faster than inflation). At worst, governments can lose control of inflation, which can dramatically reduce a populations purchasing power in a short time, reducing their quality of life. A lot of people see the US and many other countries heading into a high inflationary era due to our huge deficits and debt. They see Bitcoin, which is configured to be deflationary, as a good place to keep their money in the long term bc the value will grow as the dollars value shrinks.

I see Etherium and many of the currencies based on it as more like tech stocks. They’re finding uses for blockchain technology that will eventually change how we do business so ownership in these currencies is basically betting on the next big tech company.

Then you have a bunch of meme/shit coins that basically have no use other than a means to speculate, like dogecoin. If you buy them, you’re just hoping it catches fire in the media so you can sell to the bigger fool later.

Satoshi's seed has access to ~$64 billion dollars. Maybe he has a daemon on the internet waiting for an event to send it to all the active BTC addresses in existence. Or not. That would be interesting though.

114. "Brave Browser and BAT tokens"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Do folks here use the Brave Browser? On a monthly basis, the browser generated BAT token that 'pay' you to allow small ads to load up on the lower right hand side of the screen. I was lazy in the past in terms of setting up a wallet to properly retrieve the coins. I finally get up a Gemini account and was able to get all the BAT token the browser 'gave' me from the time I've been using the browser.


For folks that are already knowledge of these tokens, is there anything malicious in terms of what the Brave browser folks are doing?

I got UNI for free for using the Uniswap platform when it was in beta. I got a lot via an airdrop - tokens issued to people/addresses who are weird enough to use real money on new software.

I used multiple ETH addresses testing the DEX (decentralized exchange) and was paid out hundreds of UNI. It's $25 per token today.

USDC is a stable coin. Gains get cashed out to USDC.

The airdrop lotto is real. Use a platform early enough before they issue a governance token and you may get a lot of it.

It's nerds paying nerds to test nerd shit.

They are not proof of work coins - they can interact with the EVM - Ethereum virtual machine - via separate and faster blockchains. So no mining.

Different consensus algos. Staking and using validators uses so some power is used but not as muck as BTC and ETH mining. And that mining is a drop in the bucket compared to large datacenters hosting internet and cloud services.

138. "A penny is a pipe dream until they have a better burn mechanism"
In response to Reply # 136


  

          

>if it ever hits a penny I'm buying a planet. LOL

I mean, that's a 100k.

That aside, there's serious money to be made without it ever getting that far, but at this point you do need a decent investment to see those big returns. But they're there. So far I've tripled the amount I've put in.

It's definitely a FOMO/hype driven currency. The burn mechanism at this point is lackluster. People are hype as hell off it but they need to institute something major to make that happen.

IMO the wave to catch is Saitama, which I think has done a better job implementing a burn mechanism, though I think they need to up the percentage from 2 (really 3.55, since 55% of the redistribution also goes to the dead wallet) to 5.

But that does allow more time for more people to adopt the currency before it starts to hit any significant scarcity. It will never be bitcoin or ethereum, but I don't think that's what it's designed to be, and I think it will develop into more of a practical use currency.

While I think, as with SHIB, much of this is and will be driven by sheer hype FOMO, there's an argument for practical use currency to be made with SHIB and Saitama, and IMO Saitama looks like the one with stronger legs.

Still, there's money to be made off FOMO, and it's still early enough to rake off absurd returns.

15k right now makes you a millionaire if it drops two zeros from where it is now, and that would still be well behind Shib's current price.

Keep in mind, it took Shib all of a year to reach this point, and that didn't have the hype then that Saitama has right now.

That same money, if it ever hits where shib is now, gives you around 28.4 mil.

$500, right today, is a shade under 950K if it ever does what SHIB is doing now.

Which means chopping those numbers down even further still nets a solid return. in terms of risk/reward, I think that's the play.

3. transfer Eth from your CB account to your CB wallet

4. go to uniswap (or the Saitama home page) and exchange your Eth for Saitama.

I recommend doing the exchange the middle of the night, around 1-2 AM, since "gas" fees for Eth trades can be downright absurd during the days.

Also, make sure you delete the last digit of the amount of Saitama and manually enter it right back. There's a weird glitch where it won't go through otherwise.

Or you can create a Bitmart account and wait a week, since that listing is due on the 17th, I believe.

There two other bigger exhcnages supposedly in the pipeline, but then there's the Saitamask wallet dropping on the 13th (though there is currently a beta) where you will be able to buy it directly.

Cold, you saved me bigtime with this 'delete the last digit' advice. I would've lost my mind otherwise, but it damn sure worked! Thanks!

I woke up randomly at 4am and was like Oh, like me get that Saitama. I was just gonna get $50 worth and see what it does. They were trying to charge me $50 in fees for the transfer! Had to pass on that. Maybe I'll try at 1am tonight.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Hopefully with the cryptocurrency buying sessions I am seeing right now, Cardano will get within the 2.50's or even better 2.70's range.

Seeing it hit the 3.00 threshold some months ago has me being a bit greedy since it's been in the low 2's since then for several weeks.

I invested earlier this year when each share was roughly $1.00 or slightly above it. It's been at least $2.10 for the past couple of months now, so technically I am winning.

I want to win more though.

I want more wins. BTC may hit 100k in December according to the "stock-to-flow" model.

And everything in this space follows BTC - up and down. $5 ADA? Very possible.

172. "What would you buy Bitcoin at?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I feel like I'm late in the game and buying now seems foolish when it seems like it's back to its previous high of 60k. Obviously I wish I pulled the trigger when it was down to 30k. But I guess my question is more like "Do you see any more room for growth?" Are there reports that Bitcoin will hit 100k?

That 100k thing is out there in several places. Still, the next little time might see a big drop temporarily because the whales will make it happen in order to make sure THEY get in at a price they want. What does everyone think on this?

I don't need a laptop - I tried to think of a way to justify it. I'm always at home and at a desk. Apple store was out so I'm getting an M1 Mac mini OR iMac from Costco today.

It amounts to over 4 billion shib and technically makes me a millionaire two zeroes from now. But I'm not sure because I already own over 20 billion crypto.

I'm making the assumption that this is all disposable dinero. With that, I say something like: go for it..that's basically the point for a bunch of folks with this stuff. Now, the key is this: is that the point AT THIS POINT for you? You have already done well apparently, but what is the next step FOR YOU?

And practically speaking, maybe another angle/question here is this: which of those two coins has a better shot of actually being useful for real at some point based on what we 'know' now?

In response to Reply # 0
Fri Oct-22-21 03:13 PM by Cold Truth

  

          

Or at least both. Saitama is the one with serious like life changing potential, at least at this point in the game, with what I can reasonably and safely invest relative to what it would need to do to get there. Shiba is way, way off from that mark, though it is nice.

But yeah, saitama has more than tripled since my OP on it. I only has $ 500 in it, so seeing 1799 in that account is a fantastic surprise. But it still eats at me, knowing I could be seeing exponentially greater numbers right now. I have no idea what I was waiting on.

I need people to take a good slice of profit now, lol.

I don't have only one crypto. I have several, not named Shiba or Saitama. I didn't say anything that would lead to a reasonable conclusion that I have only one, or somehow think I can only have one.

>I have no idea why u pitting saitama against shib

I have no idea why you wrote that, because nothing I said comes anywhere close to this. There's no basis for your statement whatsoever.

These are the two I happen to be speaking about. I also have *my* own personal goals, for what *I* hope to accomplish. I'm not "pitting" anything against anything. I'm looking at two options and deducing that the returns for one look exponentially greater, in a shorter amount of time, based on where they are in their current pricing, and the amount of capital I have and can reasonably anticipate having to invest.

You can view it through whatever simplistic, low common denomninator fanboy lense you want, but I'm not.

>U don't know when saitama is going to hit a wall and lose
>steam

No shit. Same goes for any number of things. This is a complete non-point. You can say the same about Shib, for that matter.

>Its dumped already and shib is pumping

S. No, it's not "dumped already".

They're both doing what crypto does: rise and fall.

It has a run, and people take profits, often buying back when the price drops again. It's actually holding fairly strong around the low 50's. It's briefly dipped down to the high 40's a few times, jumping right back up to 50.

In fact, I sold all my Saitama, so that I can buy it back. More to the point, so that I can buy it back with Shib when Shib rises.

It doesn't matter what i bought it at.

I sold at a much higher price- and bought it back at a lower price than that what i sold it for. What's so confusing about that?

You buy 100 widgets at $1 each
Said widgets increase to $6 each

You sell them for 600, knowing people will also sell, and the price will drop.

Said widgets drop down to 4.50.

You buy them back, and you now hold 133 widgets for the same $600.

I dunno about you, but I'd rather have 33% more for the same money.

Each their own though.

In response to Reply # 216
Sun Oct-24-21 07:26 PM by Cold Truth

  

          

Gas fees weren't crazy so its was a worthwhile move.

I'm not aiming for dramatic shifts. I don't understand the fluctuations well enough, and don't have enough capital, to try to those kinds of plays.

But I figured it would dip before it made a push above 60, and I was correct- and bought it back at 45, just above its low for this run. I was correct on this as well.

That's a win under any scenario.

I also converted a significamt chunk of Shib when it hit 44 and Saitama was around 50/51.

My current strategy for a sizeable portion of my portfolio is to leverage Shib gains to increase my Saitama bag. I'm not pitting the two against each other, I'm using both to maximize my gains. I just wish I had done that earlier.

I'm learning as I go here, and I've stayed ahead by a good margin, trying to learn from missed opportunities as I go.

It doesn't rrally need to make sense to you or anyone else. It just needs to reflect in my bottom line.

To your "ok i guess", this are significant net positive moves, and my bottom line proves it. Why are you so pressed? Are you here to scrutinize the moves of the next person? I see you telling jetblack not to let rjcc and others bam up this discussion, and I agree. It's best to ignore them entirely. It's clear that they want to derail this whole thread.

But you're kind of doing too much right now yourself.

If that's doing too much in a post about crypto investing then my bad

I simply didn't understand your flip

I got in around the low 30s

Brought some more in the low 40s before the run up

And I just averaged up again around 49

Iv tried to stay away from swing trading crypto because the volatility plus with the market basically being up 24/7 was just too time consuming and risky

I'm just doing what worked for me with shiba in the beginning by just averaging up at different levels of price

Another reason I never thought about swing trading this was other than my timing being horrible when I've tried to execute in the past with different crypto, this shyt involves too many factors for me to feel comfortable doing it

Gas prices

The price of ethereum

Shyt was hard enough trying to time the buy in at the price I wanted it at

Gas was fluctuating $49-$67 in a span of 90 seconds

All while the token price bouncing between 48 and 51

Anyway I was just curious about your strategy

I'll move on

That's not asking a question about my strategy.

That's scrutinizing my noves and priorities based on your own imagjned versions of things I didn't actually say.

We can certainly move on, buy you don't get to oretend you were just chopping it up after I called you out for that fuckshit.

I don't do a lot of swing trading as it is. I've done it a few times, with varying degrees of success.

I've only sone it with Saitama once, and that's the one I told you about. And, once again, despite your condescendingly mystified response....that shit is climbing like crazy, just after I quintupled my Saitama bag with the two trades I told you about🤷🏼

Gas fees are what they are. For me, it's the cost of doing business for the time being, because it's more important to build up that Daitama bag asuvh as possible, as early as possible.

wishing you good returns. personally, i think crypto is a massive ponzi scheme that is destined to fail. what originally emerged as a *digital currency* has morphed into a *store of value*. a fundamental pivot of such magnitude is indicative of its failure and little to no practical use in the world. nations and banks will never yield control. corporations will never accept crypto as payment due to volatility.

crypto requires constant new investment to retain and raise value. at some point, the threshold limit will be met and the bubble will burst. the whales will walk away with everyone's investments and leave countless in ruin. maybe a bleek outlook, time will tell. if you got in early, good for you, as ponzi's always favor early investors.

There's a lot to unpack with this

crypto are not like stocks at all.

when you buy a stock, you own a piece of a company, that produces real products and offers real services. stocks are regulated and protected by the government.

what does bitcoin provide and who protects your investment?

>I mean bitcoin is legal tender in El Salvador now

although I respect the size of bukele's balls, the people of El Salvador don't want bitcoin and have rejected it. El Salvador has massive and systemic problems making it a terrible place to live. there is hardly any infrastructure to support blockchain. the country is ruled by gangs and the cartel. 70% of the population is unbanked. pushing rural people who barely have the concept of the internet into blockchain is a pipe dream. there are many reasons to believe bukele's decision was influenced by the cartel.

some things to consider. why did bukele push bitcoin when other cryptos can be sent faster for a few cents? bitcoin is limited to 7 transactions per second with an average transaction fee of $18. bitcoin technology is slow, expensive, and drains energy. to mitigate this issue the government in el salvador will utilize a node on the lightning network hub they control, which means the government will be able to censor transactions, stop, freeze, and regulate. doesn't sound like financial freedom to me but more like a dystopian wet dream. or just maybe, bukele is a crypto bro with a severe case of fomo and a poor nation's resources to pump his investments with. using el salvador as a positive use case for bitcoin is pure fantasy.

>And I'm sure Vietnam, Pakistan & India won't be too

vietnam is probably the best candidate for crypto adoption, time will tell.

the pakistani government is calling for crypto regulation although it has no objection to investment. wasn't crypto supposed to be free of regulation and decentralization? you can see where this is going. (nations will never yield control)

india is considering a crypto ban outright.

>Could be talking about our current fiat banking system with that statement too

on one hand, many crypto investors criticize fiat and attempt to liken it to some of the most fundamental flaws in our financial system with whataboutism, and on the other, they amass crypto in order to exchange it for fiat. philosoraptor enters the room. what are you investing in if not for high fiat returns? if everyone buys, the value goes up, if everyone sells, the value falls. the intrinsic similarities between crypto and ponzi are self evident, everyone can't win.

>Don't know if you been keeping up with the economy but inflation is at a 30yr high

the impact of the pandemic is clear, but it is not a forever problem. vaccination rates are on the rise and society is steadily returning to "normalcy". it may get worse before it gets better, but the global economy will recover. the pandemic was a black swan event that for all intents and purposes the world has done quite well to endure. it is no surprise the value of crypto went up at this time, and it is telling, that it relies on global catastrophe to prosper. what does crypto look like in a post pandemic world when the economy recovers do you think?

>What do you think is going to happen to the dollar when that bubble pops?

can you go into some detail here?

>It won't be shut yielding control but they will have to adapt

bitcoin will never be adopted by the big players. it's garbage tech with high transaction fees and massive negative impact on energy with high volatility. it costs me $0 to send and receive funds via my online bank portal using the speed of light. what problem is bitcoin solving exactly? i also have security and insurance and someone i can call if a problem arises. who do you call if you input just 1 wrong character on your crypto transaction? noone, because those funds are gone forever. who do you call if you have been hacked? noone. being your own bank is a lot more complicated and nuanced than crypto investors are willing to admit. many of the problems that bitcoin is positioning itself against have already been solved and are handled 1000x more efficiently, that is not to say there are no uses for blockchain, and many of the big players are building their own, they will never ever yield control.

>https://www.fa-mag.com/news/paul-tudor-jones-is-using-crypto-to-hedge-against-inflation-64503.html

everyone who invests in crypto becomes an instant marketer and salesman for crypto, essentially working for free. the more you can recruit, the higher your returns, bitcoin is the greatest mlm, ponzi ever created. doesn't matter how much you put in, the lambo dreams are strong. paul is clearly a whale and whales benefit the most, just like musk, who can change the value of your investment with a tweet. does this sound stable and secure to you?

>I mean yes the earlier you get in on investments the higher the return

this is the essence of ponzi.

speaking of pump and dump. i would advise you to read the following.

https://crypto-anonymous-2021.medium.com/the-bit-short-inside-cryptos-doomsday-machine-f8dcf78a64d3

tether is the greatest pump and dump scheme we have seen to date.

Crypto is not going away. It's an application on the internet like email. Value over TCP/IP via strong encryption.

You rely on encryption daily. You're using it on these boards.

It works. Very well.

Start here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1si5ZWLgy0

And then tell me it's a ponzi after you actually understand what bitcoin is.

Oh and welcome/welcome back to the boards.

197. "but I thought bitcoin was supposed to take down wall street"
In response to Reply # 192


          

now it's a good thing that Wall Street is investing?

crypto as an application is exactly like every other application on the internet, that's true.

the problem is that it's an incredibly slow application, that requires much more processing power than every other method.

this cannot be fixed, it's inherent to the design.

SEC is blessing BTC ETFs so the Street can play on the blockchain(s).

Bitcoin is slow (max 4MB blocks of transactions every 10 or so minutes) and proof of work uses a lot of power - A LOT. The blocks of transactions are small and when the market is moving it's molasses. IT doesn't break and has never broken. It just get much much slower. Hence all the forks attempting to solve that but people aren't using it - your DOGE, LTC, RVN, DASH... so many. The next big iteration is Proof of Stake coin.

There are other blockchains like Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solutions Avalanche (AVAX), Fantom (FTM), Polygon (MATIC), the very very centralized Binance BNB (BNB BSC) and others can be used like "regular money". It's fast and resolves quickly. >4000 TPS on AVAX 24-7-365-no holidays. Visa is fast >25k TPS (40 seemed too high - thanks Google) but you can't use it everywhere. Crypto can be used everywhere. Even off world - theoretically.

I've been in since June 2017 - the best and worst time to get in. ICO summer, Bitconnect (which I never used because it WAS a Ponzi) and thousands of scam projects out to get ETH and vanish. I've made a lot of mistakes and some really smart calls. And I pay my taxes.

I have real money in crypto I have made from "play" money. I have to take it seriously. Just like my 401(k), "Stonks" and other investments.

I'm not planning to buy a pizza with my BTC.
I'm going to buy houses.
I'm going to pay for private school.
I'm going to travel A LOT when the world is slightly less diseased.
Large purchases.

I understand people not wanting to participate. And you don't have to. But if you do there's risk. Similar to the Street.

222. "I do not give investment advice"
In response to Reply # 211


          

mostly because I wouldn't be good at it.

people make lots of money on decisions I wouldn't advise

my problem is that everything said about practical applications for blockchain technology beyond creating something for people to invest in, just does not work.

>Crypto is not going away. It's an application on the internet like email. Value over TCP/IP via strong encryption.

i don't expect it to go away either, but it will be forced to evolve and wear new hats as it fails to meet its proposed use cases. it will be a slow and painful death imo. what emerged as a deregulated digital currency, has now become a store of value to hedge against inflation. what happens when the global economy recovers? what emerged as tech revolution is now conforming to the same systems it attempted to supplant.

>You rely on encryption daily. You're using it on these boards.

i'm not worried about encryption. my resources are secure and protected, i pay $0 in transaction fees, and i have someone to call if a problem arises. what happens if you input the wrong character in your crypto transaction? who do you call if you get hacked?

i'm not even sure where to begin with Andreas, however, bitcoin failed to meet his own expectations.

>And then tell me it's a ponzi after you actually understand what bitcoin is.

i still think its a ponzi.

>Oh and welcome/welcome back to the boards.

thanks, i'm a fan of the roots and it led me to this site. interesting place with lots of discussion on things i have a lot of interest in.

No one manually enters addresses. I've never done that. Validated addresses/Public keys and QR codes only.

If you sign a transaction with your private key without validating the receiver and amount - that's on you. It's like handing a stranger cash.

What makes you thing bitcoin is a ponzi scheme? Specifically? I'm curious about your answer/logic here.

there are countless stories of people losing their crypto due to marginal errors, and many who have been hacked. major exchanges have also been caught locking people out of their accounts and preventing people from selling.

ponzi:
"a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors."

bitcoin has no real utility in our world. people have been searching for utility for over ten years. it's a solution for a problem that does not exist, therefore it is a nonexistent enterprise. you can't do anything with as it's purely speculative.

you only earn returns based on people who buy after you, which is why every crypto investor is also a salesman and spokesperson, working to recruit new investors in order to pump the value of its worth.

Marginal errors? Example? People definitely get hacked because they don't understand how to secure their private key(s) which is paramount for anyone going to self-custody/store access to coins and tokens. Or don't secure their accounts with 2FA or the exchange is hacked on the backend/server side. That can happen with any account/system not just crypto. People get locked out of accounts ALL the time - also in and out of crypto. The centralized exchanges are much better about having users secure their accounts BEFORE any purchases.

More info about that here: https://www.coinbase.com/learn

And as a personal rule I use an exchange as such - a place to exchange fiat for crypto - then store the rest via private keys stored in secure locations. They are not banks - yet. No FDIC with crypto. That's what's happening sooner rather than later.

Usually when an exchange prevents users from buying or selling is the user's local laws.Binance has everything - good, bad and ugly. They are based in Malta.
Coinbase has a decent variety of coins. They based in the US are subject to US laws.

But since it's all internet based a clever person could unload a bag they cannot unload on CB, Gemini, Kraken etc. Or via a DEX.

Bitcoin is $60k as of right now - I got in at $2700.

I'm good - I've bought vacations, computers, paid for lawyers and paid taxes via BTC. It is real.

Most of the people stacking BTC right now already have it and are continuing to acquire it due to the fact that there will only be about 21 million and traditional finance wants more tools to make money and fees. That's the main reason the Street is excited - another way to line their pockets. Speculation DEFINITELY happens. In EVERY market.

Yes - new people are getting in but they are buying fractions. They aren't moving the price up. The whales are - just like the Street. 0.01 BTC here, 0.03 BTC there. They are buying sats - satoshis - the smallest fraction of a bitcoin.

You can see some of that data here: https://bitcoinity.org/markets

If you look at this post regarding me specifically I'm pushing the ETH L2s - enhancements on Ethereum's scalability and throughput via validators and proof of stake. There's more programmable money functions on Ethereum via "smart contracts".

I'm shilling this. SPECIFICALLY: https://www.avax.network/

too many to mention. frequent some of the popular crypto subs on reddit and you'll come across many.

there are plenty of other hacks as well, again, please refer to the subs.

the difference is, i can call someone to straighten the issue out and my money is protected.

The centralized exchanges

coinbase has locked people out of their accounts, and prevented people from selling during dips. this is all very well documented.

>And as a personal rule I use an exchange as such - a place to
>exchange fiat for crypto - then store the rest via private
>keys stored in secure locations. They are not banks - yet. No

"be your own bank! bankers hate this ol money under the mattress trick."

sincerely, crypto should address some of its security issues.

>Usually when an exchange prevents users from buying or selling

coinbase has not registered with the SEC, and it's deposits are not protected by the SIPC either.

ponzi always favor early investors. congrats, genuinely thrilled for you. for your sake, i hope you time your market exit correctly.

the bubble will burst eventually. something you have not addressed is that bitcoin is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, it's tech is garbage and energy costly. bitcoin has been looking for a problem to solve for over 10 years and has not found one.

fractions add up, however, to your point about whales. crypto investors claim that bitcoin is decentralized, but it is clearly not when whales can swing the price at will or with a tweet. it is centralized via their hands. what do you think would happen if the whales pulled out? also, i really think you should read the following article:

https://crypto-anonymous-2021.medium.com/the-bit-short-inside-cryptos-doomsday-machine-f8dcf78a64d3

tether has been used to pump the value of bitcoin and is destined to fail.

and once again people are always saying the market is a bubble and will pop.

In 2008 it actually popped..

and people went right back in and now its humming along and people once again are saying it will pop.
