    I don’t buy into the save the world/ cure cancer rhetoric but I think stalefish ain’t a shitposting cretin like mtuhockey.

    Meanwhile the El Salvadoran scheme looks to be murky as hell, naturally.

    Mr. Bukele has treated the bitcoin policy as a state secret. He has classified all information related to Chivo Wallet, which was created with taxpayer funds, but is run as a private enterprise by undisclosed individuals.

    . “What Bukele is doing is not bitcoin, but a centralized, state-run banking system,” said Mario Gómez, a Salvadoran data expert who was detained by police and held for six hours last month on unspecified accusations of financial crimes after organizing social media seminars about cryptocurrency risks. “It is the antithesis of the principles of bitcoin champions.”

    I don't think he is a Troll, he is a True Believer and nothing will change that. Best of luck to him.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Took some profits from SOL and put into BTC/ETH 60/40. I have to get better at stacking real sats instead of being so alt heavy.

    I know! They make my eyes start to glaze over. I respect the debate as it concerns the future of money, but I get worn out thinking about it. I study it all as much as I can handle, I mean the macro picture. I never wanted to care about money, but here we are. As for the personal attacks, they just make me lose respect for any argument.

    Anyway, maybe you are interested - I also have a buy order ladder between 35k-45k. For me 35k is worst case scenario because 35k was the opening value of the 3rd quarter. lfg

    Do you think it's too ham-fisted to have BTC limit orders from 58K - 60K at $5000 steps? I'm talking small fractions of BTC.
    Similar orders with ETH from 3800-4000 with $500 steps... fractions of ETH.
    Or is that dumb?
    Putting it into USDT, because no other reason than because.

    You mean at $500 price increments? That's exactly what I do (but $1000 currently). Not sure if it's optimal, but it gives me peace of mind. I never get fud or fomo. You can calculate your levels when the market is quiet, place your orders, and then just watch everything unfold. It's fun that way.

    One consideration is nonlinearity - the human mind thinks in linear terms and btc is not linear at all. ALL the charts we look at are log scale! Practically speaking that means as btc price increases (exponentially) my sell ladder has to adjust accordingly.

    Not a fan of USDT.

    btc crushing.

    i wouldn't sell anything. i have 3 time frames: forever, 6/12 months, and everyday.

    i'll hold half or more forever, i'll be on the lookout for a 50% selloff early mid next year after this run to 100-200k. i'll try and time the top as best i can, convert into stablecoin, and rebuy at the bottom. then we go to a million in '24/'25.

    the everyday is on the way up to next spring. i use the coinbase card earning btc on every transaction.

    we shall see.

    Early on I made myself a promise that I would never ever sell BTC. Everything else is game though.

    And USDC > USDT.

    You should try the fold card. Been putting everything on it and crushing it. Averaging way over 2% BTC back, and that's before BTC price increases. And they are about to have Pokemon style sats lol! They posted about it a while ago, but the first notification just appeared in the app today. Name:  Screenshot_20211015-214125~2.jpeg

    Bitcoin doesn't work as a business payments rail. 93% of El Salvadoran companies are reporting no bitcoin payments because while Salvadoran's have joined the Chivo network, a centralized payment processor, for the $30 incentive they still prefer USD:


    Only a fraction of the Central American nation's businesses have taken a bitcoin payment and technical problems have plagued the government's cryptocurrency app, frustrating even committed users of the technology.

    Agreed troll is the wrong framing. Kayfabe is better. It's like marketing a gambling product. The game administrators or early entrants have a big incentive to lie about the true nature of the product and describe it as an investment, since that draws in new players prolonging the game and enriching the early birds.

    Kinda sums up my experience with this thread.
    Pop in for advice from the experts. Nada from anyone other than Shera. Then when things blow up, people start talking about what the smart people were doing when I asked for advice. Hindsight is 20/20. It’s also really easy to predict the past.
