I dont hold much USD.
So what do you use in instead of the cash portion in your PP?
I dont have a PP at the moment as I own no stocks or treasuries. I have gold and cash positions and a bitcoin position.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

@bitcoininthevp Would love to hear more of your thoughts on ETH. I guess a question I have for you is whether you hold any USD cash and why if it is only the 'token' of the US economy. I dont hold much USD. That which I do is for nearer term transactions and the rest basically emergency fund type f...

Today is a good day for showing the non-correlation of bitcoin, zagging while the nasdaq zigs.
Maybe. But perhaps it just dumps in the afterhours.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

Well, Bitcoin is an inflation-resistant, censorship-resistant, seizure-resistant, pseudonymous digital asset. And governments like inflating, censorship, taxation, and privacy intrusion. Emphasis mine. Pseudonymity is a major step backwards, is it not? Gold is anonymous. Cash (physical) is anonymou...

The only thing I think is a problem is that you can't place capital controls on bitcoin.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

I honestly think the direction is already super clear that the US is in support of BTC. What's the evidence? All major US government departments have reported on how Bitcoin should be treated (IRS, SEC, etc). US Banks allowed to custody it. Avanti got a bank license and will be part of the fed netw...

I always like this path as a way to visualize Bitcoins monetization path.

I think Bitcoin is perhaps a few notches up from when this was published a couple years ago.

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

"Bitcoin SV looks undervalued"

Nah, its just garbage. And its being delisted from exchanges, etc.

If you arent deep in the space and want to play, just buy bitcoin and enjoy the ride.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

But would it help finish the project? I want all the bitcoins to be mined. O0 (Yes there is a 'd' at the end). No matter how many miners join or leave the bitcoin network, the number and schedule of new bitcoin being released will be the same. That is the elegance, dare I say beauty, of Bitcoin's s...

I know this is a very pie in the sky thought, but that would be neat if there could be some distributed computing going on.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

So if bitcoins price is cut in half due to some market shakeout.. and with the continued halving events the amount of Bitcoin rewarded for work continues to decrease what happens if a large number of miners call it quits? Does the everything grind to a standstill? Will transactions take days to pro...

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

No idea. Can't recall where I read it, but Nvidia announced some changes in their product range and specs e.g. cutting some of the performance if regular GCs are used for mining. So, do not know whether that will change also the product pricing model miners rely on. Too many unknowns for my taste. ...

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

That begs the question...at what price does mining bitcoin become a losing proposition? What happens if miners can't turn a profit? It's already hardly profitable. Here, people are making some gains combining the BTC price increase with electricity thefts . Do not know how widely spread in US the e...

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

There is the other side that you probably can't see now since you probably have at least several BTC. Most people will feel like they missed out on HODLing a whole BTC and that has a psychological effect that deters from participating. If people start seeing another coin that seems to have potentia...

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

How are Bitcoins mined? I saw an article today about most of the Bitcoin mining is occurring China but I read it and it didn't compute.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

I don’t know how they work. But I know how people work. And in this decade I think we’ll see celebrities hawking their own coins. Maybe Bitcoin will remain strong amidst the noise. But Marc de Mesel, bitcoin giveaway guy, is online saying “$BTC is not bitcoin.” I need to research what he means. You...
