    Lawyers for clients who lost millions in the bankruptcy of the QuadrigaCX digital currency exchange have formally asked the RCMP to exhume the remains of the firm's founder.

    Ha ha. That's too much!

    Although, he probably did die of some bowel disorder.
    Probably from a buildup of toxins from years of scamming people,
    a true realization that he was a sad sort,
    to even scam an orphanage whilst on a fake news campaign!

    And then, boom! All those little nodules in his intestine finally protested.
    Nature itself, could not contain the evil that this sad excuse harbored in the bowels of his
    High Yield Investment Schemes.

    So in a way, nature wins.
    Natural selection even finds a way to purge evil.


    As suspect as his death seems, the timing and all, it is probably the catching up of his life's providence
    -- that speaks of many scams, many victims, and much conniving and bad associations,
    that in turn may have inadvertently turned his own biology against himself.

    Which brings me to Mark, Chapter 9:

    “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.

    If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, where

    “ ‘the worms that eat them do not die,

    and the fire is not quenched.’

    Everyone will be salted with fire.

    “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”


    Indeed, some user here in this thread, with 5,000+ posts, before they changed their user handle, said recently that
    many millennials have been suckered into putting
    sizable portions of their investments (as small as that is) into Bitcoin and crypto.


    Have these millennials been caused to stumble?

    Will their Greyscale Investments ever return them anything?
    Probably not. They will probably get pennies on the dollar.

    Scammer gonna scam. That's what they do.

    But nature wins.
    Gerald Cotten's worms probably ate him to death in India,
    and they will probably eat him to death in the afterlife too.
    Long love nature.
    Nature Always Wins.

    The dogs may bark, but the Millennial's that invested in Grey-scale,
    will be buying discount ski jackets
    on the grey markets
    for years to come.

    "QuadrigaCX widow ‘heartbroken’ over exhumation request."

    Well I guess so.
    I mean, maybe she doesn't even know if it is him or not.

    He willed her $9M just before he allegedly died.
    If I was her, I wouldn't even look.
    Just bury the fucker and give me my $9M!

    And let's say, it isn't him and she was fleeced.
    Then she doesn't get the deal because ... the courts won't certify that he is dead for legal and insurance purposes.

    If he is alive, the money forensics will eventually catch up to him.

    And she changed her name 3 times, before they even met.
    Shady as AF.
    When movie?

    BTC Still not zero. Best investment of the decade. Just wait until the Fidelity fund managers get the directive to start allocating a few points of their customers' portfolios to BTC. Just getting started.

    The decade is almost over — and one incredibly volatile investment stood out from all the rest as the best of the 2010s. Want to guess what it was?

    Bitcoin.

    According to a recent report by Bank of America Securities, if you invested $1 in bitcoin at the start of the decade, it would now be worth more than $90,000...

    That's nothing.
    You should have invested in Tulips in 1634.
    They returned over 100,000 times the initial investment in only one year.

    You know what hurts? Selling off much of the GBTC that I bought for under $4 because I'm a fucking hobo. God damnit.

    You bought it for under $4? Or sold it for under $4?

    At least you were smart enough to stay away from altcoins and scam exchanges.

    All I thought I knew about Barry Silbert (a la Greyscale), is something someone told me,
    that he kept Ethereum Classic alive to find a way to profit from it. Which has since gone the way of the dinosaurs.
    The people that bought all the ETC during the 2017 ETC/ETH fork, bought it for cents on the dollar, and then they owned it all,
    to pump n dump if they wished.


    Greyscale. Ahem. Cough cough. What the #$% were you thinking?

    Whatever your outcome and investment outlook,
    be glad you didn't get Mt. Goxed (100% of everyone that initially invested in BTC 10 years ago),
    or suffer the huge Bitfinex hack loss in 2016 (or 2017??)
    or suffer from the many and numerous exchange 'hacks' before and since.

    BTC and crypto has been a very efficient means of separating people from their wealth, since the very inception.

    Great read! Nic must not have gotten PG's email telling him BTC is going to zero. Probably went to his spam folder or something.

    Why bother using perfectly reasonable and logical arguments to try and combat entrenched greed and delusion? Doing that in person is hard enough. Across the internet, when there are so many echo chambers the people can retreat to for encouragement and support ... it's virtually impossible.

    Even though cryptocurrency is horrible (a lot of people are going to lose, relatively few can "win"), the whole cryptocurrency thing is really an interesting experiment. Watching it unfold, watching the coin shills, the scammers and the scams, the 3000+ shitcoins, and thinking about the psychology behind FOMO, HODL, strong hands vs weak hands, the PUMPS, the DUMPS, the bogus rarity claims, the buzzwords, the "secret knowledge", the MEMEs, the infighting between the crypto cults, etc is really incredibly interesting.

    The people in the cult seem to think of themselves as creating a new future, when all they are doing is buying a ticket in a corrupt lottery. It is really extremely "cult-ish" behavior. We probably (hopefully) wont see another experiment like this in our life times.

    What a shame. The entire history of money has always been about magnanimity until Bitcoin came around.

    Although, your post actually makes a great case for Bitcoin because BTC removes trust from the equation. A person sending 1000 BTC or one moving 5 Satoshis has the same rights and censorship resistant abilities as anyone else via the BTC protocol. So in that sense it's a great equalizer for many.

    Is there an applied use of blockchain other than unregulated trading vehicles?
