    Is ADA the only coin up in the past month? If you ignore the pump and dump.

    it has had a nice little gain today and coinbase is claiming 77 percent buys in the last 24 hour probably not to late to get in on the slide at 8:40 eastern. I own a bunch......and quite honestly for the better part of the last 2 years I have been an APE slide trading with no real understanding of what I was doing so does someone want to explain staking to me like I was 10? at least in the terms of Cardano.....

    I am long on ADA, not slide trading it only anymore. Also do not take any advice from me ever.

    So, bitcoin is essentially trying to replace the 100 dollar bill in illicit transactions?

    Have they figured out how to tightly roll up a bitcoin yet? Didn't think so.

    Ironically, just like he said in that video was what actually happened last cycle. I am 3 degrees separated from a Silicon Valley couple that mortgaged two of their homes in San Francisco to buy BTC when it was at $16K in 2017-18. They lost both homes in the end after buying the dips down past $8K and then selling at a loss to save losing even more. People like Saylor actually encourage this. I don't feel sorry for anyone with 2 homes in SF. But still, their losses didn't go to buy toilets for van lifers. They went to the pockets of the whales running the tape.

    Welp, I'm sure they're absolutely kicking themselves now for not committing to the long game (which wasn't really that long). You either have to commit and prepare for the swings if you're going to make a move like that, or don't.

    It's like counting cards at blackjack. I'll never sit down at a table with less than $2-3k so if I lose some larger hands when the odds were stacked in my favor, I'm committed to the count and maintain my bets accordingly. I have friends who will play with me and mimic my betting... and so many times those who start to back off after a loss end up losing money, while those who stick with it and remain consistent win. (not always, but more often than not. point is, you have to have the stomach for it or you shouldn't play)

    True. You can't play short in a long con. But still, would you have stayed in the game from $20K to $15K to $13K to $10K to $8K and then $5K and then even lower than $4K? That's what happened and so many folks posting Buy the Dip memes all the way down for 2 years. You would have held after 2 years even with reports coming out that 'Blockchain Enterprise Really Sucks'? Look when this thread ran dry - after the first 3 dips. It is easy to say 'play the long game'. A lot harder in real life. And then what if you really intend to play the long game but ... something happens in your life (marriage/divorce/children/sickness/jobloss)? I AGREE with what you are saying. The biggest mistake was obviously putting too much on that bet and then realizing it too late. Oh, and buying the dips (throwing good money after bad money). If they had gone with 5% max of their unleveraged wealth (i.e. not lines of credit or emergency funds) they could have stayed in the game till now and ... been rich. Oh wait. They were rich. LOL. Oh well, gotta distribute wealth somehow! They were up 25% in a matter of 2 weeks. They should have cashed out and left the 25% gains in and let it be. They got greedy.

    Would I have stuck with it? Only if I was feeling extremely confident in the long play... otherwise I wouldn't have done it in the first place. I guess that's my point, you have to make your moves with conviction and not just bail on them, otherwise don't make the move at all. Michael Burry in The Big Short is a great example.

    That's why I brought up counting cards. If you do it and bet properly, you essentially become the house, flipping the odds in your favor. So if you play long enough, you'll win. But you can't bitch out. And sometimes you'll leave town a loser, but 2/3 or 3/5 of the time you'll leave ahead. Plus, if it's Vegas, for example, even when you lose you get a lot of stuff comped.

    Honestly anyone who gives me advice and doesnt tell me about their loses I am skeptical of.

    The entire goal is to win and not get greedy. The reality is if you good you can legit make an insane return with just slide trading I started with 700 dollars 4 years ago and Lost 20k during the dip, but the fact I had 20k to lose and its hurt but did not even come close to sinking me is just how good the last couple years to someone with no experince and just an autistic mind watching patterns can do.

    and actually sold most things off 3 days before the Dip into Tether means that I am actually up from prior to the dip and the crash actually helped me. I know longer mess with Bitcoin because it is not volatile enough.

    if you slide/day trade and you get lucky and get that 20 percent return in day and choose to keep it, IMO watch it like hawk or put it back into Tether or any of the Gold backed crypto(actually with the 10 percent inflation rate right now those Gold based coins are a solid non risky bet.) Long story short is I built sizable capital from making a couple hundred of dollars a day many times for many year and some days I lost lots, but with to me that original 700 dollars was money I could afford to loose, and beside some of the minor withdraws I have made all the capitol from it is monopoly money and until its millions of dollars Ill continue to drive my 2k shit box and live like I make 40k a year. I literally checked coinbase/crypto like 20 times today.......but I have learn that inaction is best unless you really see something happening to many time people fall into "bear" trap like that poor couple from SF.........

    ^Yeah, at some point it just becomes a grind. Unless you're a yolo type idiot, then maybe you belong on wsb - at least you can get your karma for posting loss porn, hahaha. I see these people in Vegas at the poker table too, with no clue of the theory of the game and how to win. It's not sexy at all, a tough way to make an easy living...

    Really, if someone just dcas for a couple of years they will be fine. I look forward to the next protracted bear because I will do just that, via mining. Still have to consider exit strategy, but you have to make the same calculations with your trad retirement account.

    I hooked a small buy at 33.3, bottom of the range. I wonder where we are going - up, down, sideways, interesting times. If we run up into the 40s, I will be selling.

    A strong push by Wall Street to open up access to Bitcoin investment is meeting resistance from a bipartisan group of lawmakers and regulators in Washington, setting up a lobbying fight over the future of digital currency.

    Major financial industry players including Fidelity Investments and Anthony Scaramucci’s SkyBridge Capital are pressing the Securities and Exchange Commission to approve their plans to launch funds on public stock markets that would let small investors tap into the rise of Bitcoin prices.

    Wall Street says it’s getting in the game and trying to launch so-called exchange-traded funds linked to cryptocurrency in response to surging demand, with the market for Bitcoin alone exceeding $670 billion. Firms are pouring money into lobbying to shape regulation and to convince skeptical policymakers that digital currency is viable for wider adoption for the masses.

    But lobbyists face an uphill battle that has gotten even tougher after dramatic price swings in recent days, with Bitcoin plunging nearly 40 percent since early May. The investor risks are building on broader concerns about whether cryptocurrency fuels money laundering, aids tax evaders and could threaten the safety of the financial markets themselves if broadly adopted.
    What could possibly go wrong.

    How about CDSs designed to insure crypto swings? And most western banks playing in that sandbox, because profit. Then, the rating agencies get involved by saying, hey, for a fee, we'll give it all a triple AAA rating. When has that ever happened? True innovation!

    Of course Scarmucci wants to legitimize this garbage. He talked up Trump, after all. Fidelity doesnt surprise me, they're snakes.

    ===============
    CEO Jamie Dimon said in House testimony Thursday that his company — the nation’s largest bank — was debating how to make it available in a safe way. But Dimon's personal advice? “Stay away from it.”

    “That does not mean the clients don't want it,” Dimon said. “It goes back to how you have to run a business. I don't smoke marijuana, but if you make it nationally legal I'm not going to stop our people from banking it.”

    Hold My Beer token. The first crypto to be secured by a novel new scheme called Delegated Proof of Slake. If the beer doesn't slake your thirst, then the transaction is invalid. Likewise, if the beer does slake your thirst, then the next transaction probably is invalid. It's the beauty of balancing of user interests that is constantly at play that secures this and makes it so efficient. Once someone holds your beer, the best thing to do is look at someone elses beer. I haven't produced the whitepaper yet. We are a little too drunk right now to think about technical details.
