Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

I guess all the bitcoin in the world would amount to $0, as no one would want to participate. Gold could be sold just for being shiny and workable. But, if I had all the bitcoin in the world, I would enjoy quietly deleting it. O0 Someone in the world has owned all available bitcoin actually. It was...

Re: Asset Allocation Ideas when you have a Mortgage

What Harry says on the topic of real estate: Some people think of real estate as an investment. And, of course, it is possible to buy a home and later resell it at a higher price. But no matter how much your home has appreciated when you sell it, it's quite possible that you'll replace it with anoth...

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

I believe future value of many (all?) of the ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) and altcoins are likely to trend to zero. Including Ethereum? Yes. By the way, did you take the five minutes? ;) Spent years following and thinking about this. Still waiting for your genius to enlighten the entirety of the b...

Re hoarding: http://nakamotoinstitute.org/mempool/im-hoarding-bitcoins-and-no-you-cant-have-any/ Interesting read. Damn that board looks young! That's a really sad read. Pump and dump early adopters are the real winners here. Greedy fools will be the losers. I suppose that's the way with most thing...

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

I meant devastating to its maturing into a major world currency. The exchange rate has little to do with anything, in my opinion. Forex trading is something I could never stomach. I am unable to conceive of bitcoin that would be mature(ing) into a world currency but not also have a huge value (exch...

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

Oh, I am full of them, having seen the death of numerous digital currencies over the years (at this point, decades). Not all the autopsy reports are how-tos for bitcoin attacks.... but some are. But even without that historical background, all one needs is a relatively realistic and Machiavellian u...

Do the member of this forum believe in the 4% rule? or is it more like 3%, 2%? Or is the thinking flawed?

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

I get the sneaking suspicion that once Bitcoin becomes sufficiently large enough, the US Government will make it officially illegal. This may not stop its use entirely, but it will almost entirely halt its use by corporate entities as an acceptable form of payment, which would be devastating enough...

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

But the priority of many of the core bitcoin developers is bitcoin-as-a-settlement-layer. Then building second layers on top (coinbase sure, but also other networks like lightning network, rootstock, etc). Rootstock, chicken stock, I don't know. It just seems like bitcoin was going to be a neat med...

Re: Bitcoin Costs More than Gold?

Bitcoin's most impactful original idea was uncensorable money. Could you explain why you think Bitcoin is "uncensorable"? Perhaps I am just too imaginative, but it seems to me if I were in the government I could come up with a number of effective ways to "censor" it. I think the onus is on you to e...
