Ray III, told a Delaware bankruptcy court on Monday.* Or are we meant to be watching the 21min video which is embedded?

So OP, your entire argument for moons is: - Reddit has a huge community - It’s built on a good network Why do either of those means that a crypto token is a good idea, or that it should increase in price? You are missing anything to do with the value that the token provides. There ARE some things, in my opinion, but this post just misses them completely and says “Reddit is popular therefore it will succeed”. I am bullish on moons. But we need pro-moon posts to contain more substance/evidence.

The numbers are quite spectacular. Hard to tell crime vs hype vs “smart”, particularly for the Kevin Rose owned NFT, where the fact that it was connected to a “celebrity” adds some kind of value. Regardless, quite amazing that people have this much ETH sitting in wallets, just waiting.

Try selling anything of value on Facebook Marketplace and you’ll have scammers lining up within minutes …nothing to do with crypto. There will always be scum in this world. Crypto is just one of the channels they use.

Bit of a nothing article and a misleading title. > The Bank of England and the Treasury said the decision about whether to roll out a digital pound, which has been nicknamed “Britcoin,” would be made around the middle of the decade. They aren’t even planning to make a decision until the middle of the decade, so we can add at least a few more years to that before we see anything. Also interesting that they largely are steering away from the “CBDC” wording in this article.

Absolutely it is currently done under the covers, behind the scenes without people connecting dots to realize that they are paying for it. One-off taxes covering the gaps wouldn’t be possible, as for example during covid the numbers were so large that this would hit everyone very heavily. A government who introduced taxes for that situation would then be voted out. This would then lead to “social safety net / public service” governments finding it hard to get voted in and “business / profit first / privatization” ones taking over. The net result would then be the most vulnerable people in society potentially not receiving the funds and services they require. I’m going to have to do some more reading on this topic, as it’s not piqued my interest and I know very little about it. The above are just my initial “gut feel” thoughts without too much thinking time. Nice chat either way! Random topic: There is a really great pizza place in Melbourne, Australia named “SPQR”. Your name reminded me of it, and I love pizza!

Agree on your stated benefits. Slightly different angle, but one part which may be worth exploring as a follow up, is how a governments inability to control monetary policy may negatively impact economies. For example, if a government is unable to print money out of thin air to stimulate parts of the economy in times of need, how might this play out? I’ve never researched this angle too much. So don’t have answers, and it’s not something that this sub generally wants to talk about as “government = bad”. Interested to hear your thoughts.

There is an expectation that text-based posts on Reddit are your own original work/thoughts. If people are clear that ChatGPT is being used to generate responses I don’t have a problem with it, that can be taken into consideration when trying to determine the accuracy of the comment. Reddit is meant to be about building communities, people reply asking about OPs “original thoughts”, and OP can’t contribute, because they aren’t OPs thoughts at all. It’s different with a link-post, we know that OP didn’t write a linked article, so critique it in a different way. Transparency on Reddit is the key. Emails are often different. You could use ChatGPT to respond to a business question/transaction and there wouldn’t be a problem. But here on Reddit right now it’s more like having ChatGPT automatically respond to your girlfriend’s romantic messages. She’d be pissed if she found out, as her expectation was that she was hearing your personal thoughts. There are different expectations for different kinds of interactions.

2200 moons had a value of ~$250USD. To turn that in to $1200USD of ETH in 2 months is excellent. At a rate of 5X every 2 months, you’ll hit $1 million by the end of 2023. I wish to subscribe to your newsletter and erect a statue in your honor.

If you are farming moons because you think it is a financially smart idea, you are doing it wrong. I spend several hours a day reading this sub and commenting. If I was working at McDonalds earning $10/hr for that time, I could buy WAY more moons than I “might” earn here. If you think moons are going to shoot up in value, the most efficient option is to buy them at the current prices, with money earned from a job. I’m here posting because I want to be, and would be elsewhere on Reddit doing the same thing for free if this sub didn’t exist. Moons are the side benefit.

Not sure why we have the headline the way it is. “Multi trillion” isn’t really that far away. If $2T, that’s only something like a 4-5X, very obtainable over the 10-20 year period mentioned. $1.5m BTC though, that’s more like 50X! It would put the market cap at more like $20T.

Sure, but let’s also keep in mind the numbers we are talking about here with “deflationary”. 10,000 coins burned is worth somewhere around $20mil, on a market cap of $200 billion. 0.01% (if my maths is correct) over 6 months. This is no major burn.

That’s the hard reality. It is shit. And this is the part of crypto that many don’t want to admit. There are lots of ways to lose your money.

Hopefully a bot can provide completely independent and objective analysis of coins. It has in theory all the data in the world to work with. But the data sources it relies on needs to be accurate, and that is a large problem with it now. If ChatGPT tells you anything, you have no idea where that information has come from. Ask it about a local hotel. Is that positive response coming from user reviews or several marketing-spin articles created by the hotel themselves? The same is true with crypto, analysis and objective responses needs to start with carefully chosen data sources. Just try asking a detailed question about a topic you are an expert in. There are almost always parts of the response which “aren’t 100% right”. Right now, ChatGPT is lots of fun, but with huge caveats.

Yes, and no. It is the new “hot thing”, this is how the metaverse was being talked about a year ago. A difference with ChatGPT is that it has great functionality already. It isn’t version 1 of a chatbot that we are talking about. This is the latest generation of bots. The power is there, just waiting to be built upon, so we need to get beyond the gimmick implementations and wait for the real powerful business cases to be built out.

People are drawn to crypto from the 1000X stories. People who already have crypto don’t help, as these are the most commonly told stories, not the boring ones. They start crypto and look for the 1000X, get burned, then slowly transition over to the less volatile options such as BTC/ETH. Once crypto can remove the image of “get rich quick” and instead come to the realization that it is now much more modest, it will be a better place.

I agree with almost everything you have written. On the last point, I see the remaining potential main value (in a perfect model) as “a digital currency where you can pay for anything, anywhere, at very low fees”. But that’s going to require everyone to implement the technology. Once you have multiple types of implementations you are back to the current model, where each country have their own local currency.

Everything on the list is perfectly valid. Let’s take just #3. The government are using interest rate changes to get inflation under control now, to slow down people spending. They can effectively change the prices/cost of goods and services in the country. As more people move to crypto these things are less effective. The ability to change interest rates is an incredibly powerful tool for the government.

Run for the hills. Ponzi schemes work by paying out a few wins, you’ll then feel pressure to invest more or get friends to join in too. It will be money on a screen, hard to actually exit your investment and cash out. Money from new investors is used to pay the old ones. Then one day the music stops, and people all lose. Stay clear, don’t do it, with any amount.

Oh, this story again. Where 8 out of 10 people mentioned crypto to their financial advisors. With absolutely no mention of exactly what sort of interest someone needed to have in crypto in order to be considered as 1 of those 8. So it could have quite literally been someone mentioning it in passing and quickly ruling it out. It’s far from saying “8 in 10 are going to invest in crypto”.

1. Too many currencies and networks. 2. Too hard to transfer between currencies/networks. 3. Too hard to off board. 4. Too many things to learn. If people in a crypto sub get confused and scammed, the rest of the outside world doesn’t stand a chance. We need big simplified solutions, and as much as people hate to admit, often these very user/friendly solutions are designed by centralized entities. So maybe the new and old worlds are going to have to learn to play nicely with each other to come up with some solutions.

Agreed. A recession means that people are generally going to have less money to spend on anything. If people don’t have leftover disposable income, they can’t invest …in anything. Crypto won’t magically pump during a recession. Maybe OPs point is more that “if people have given up hope on everything else, crypto may close in on other investments if they have a choice of one or the other”. But that is also flawed and crypto is seen as being highly speculative by most. It’s hard to find new people to join in on a speculative investment when it is returning negative results in a recession. New investors, if they have disposable income to invest, will go to the assets which have been tried and tested over decades (and previous recessions). Your point is valid though, there will be winners and losers everywhere. There may be several bargains available in the crypto space which over a longer term could create generational wealth for those who pick the right ones.

Does this increase “engagement in the AMA” or just “additional comments in the AMA post in an attempt to win karma bonuses”? Feels like the unintended consequence is that the AMA posts will be full of attempts to win the karma bonus, from people who have no interest in the AMA. Those who are genuinely interested won’t have the same opportunities to ask questions, as their voices will be flooded out.

It’s very easy to get lost in this sub and get caught up in the narrative. Consume this sub, and crypto, as part of a balanced diet. Read the general finance/business sections of the media too and find out what they think about the economy, and crypto. A major problem on Reddit is that people often say things that will see them receive upvotes, rather than the things they actually believe. So you never know if you are hearing someone’s genuine opinion.

Agreed, but almost everyone makes both right and wrong calls.

It will make the resale market much more simple and reliable, removing the possibility of many types of scams from phony tickets.

That’s a tough question. Seized crypto assets are normally auctioned off. I guess this may come down to “was the ape scammed from someone?” or “Did the scammer buy the ape with the proceeds of crime?”. If the latter, there the previous owner of the ape would have already been paid.

I totally get the second part. There is no accountability, but we also need to consider what kind of level of research we “expect” an influencer to do. Tom Brady and tens of millions of dollars with FTX, they should be a lot of research. But $1000 for a single Instagram post? We can’t expect much/any research for that kind of money. It feels a bit like a witch hunt, but knowing the other work that Coffee Zilla does (excellent), I am sure that once the video comes out I’ll be put at ease.

So when/how does that situation change? If you’re in a new relationship, yet will continue living with the ex for the indefinite future? Another year? Or until the kids leave home? Might be worth trying to put a plan together to sort that part out, so you can then focus on building a new relationship. Some men may accept it as a temporary solution, but “not sure, we may continue living together until the kids are 18”, is going to be near impossible for any to accept.

Whether or not we see $1 this year will come down to: 1. The overall crypto market. Moons won’t hit $1 if there is a market crash. 2. New additional projects and integrations being built. Whether that be another moonplace, or Reddit allowing moons for avatars etc. 3. A big exchange listing moons. This could see it push beyond $1 very quickly. 4. Media attention. Everyone wants to get onto a project that is popular. A few good articles good make all the difference. There are plenty of examples of memes/junk all the way up to a $1bn market cap, and moons offer more “value” than those. So while sounding ridiculous right now, we can’t rule out that they won’t hit that kind of cap, which would put them at about $10 in the next bull.

He cashed out millions, then as he was crossing the road from the bank was hit by a truck carrying wild ostriches. One of the ostriches escaped and clawed him, almost to death. As he was being transported to hospital the ambulance driver parked to get a snack, forgetting that he was in the back. It was a hot day. He sweated and sweated in the back of the ambulance, once again getting steps closer to death, but then the ambulance driver returned. He quickly provided him a sip from a bottle of refreshing water, profusely apologizing. They continued on their journey to the hospital, him sipping from the bottle of water. He was thankful for still being alive against the odds and recovered fully in hospital. Two weeks later he invested everything in BitConnect.

My greatest hope is that it all comes out in public. But I doubt it even goes that far, and there will instead be some out of court settlement. Surely Logan Paul would understands that public coverage of this would destroy his “reputation”. Either way, this ends up with him losing something (money or credibility), so it’s a win!

What difference would it have made financially if they were securities and Coinbase was authorized to be the intermediary? This reads a lot like “people got rekd buying crypto because the market dropped” and now they are looking for a way to claw back some funds. If Coinbase are operating illegally, let the government agencies take them to court. I hate the “let’s sue” culture when people can’t take responsibility for their own actions.

>DCA strategy has been mostly recommended due to the assumption that the market is overvalued No. This is completely incorrect. DCA is recommended when you believe that overall the asset/index/market will trend upwards over the long term. You buy at regular intervals to average out your buy price, because you don’t know if the price will go up or down. If you believe that the asset is currently overvalued, don’t buy it.

The numbers will all depend on inflation too. $15T needs to be put in context with understanding the value of the S&P in 10 years too. Or are you predicting that it will be at half of the future market cap of the S&P? We are currently sitting at 1/30th, my belief is that we could see that improve to maybe 1/5th of S&P value.

Absolutely, the sorting features are required. It’s a nightmare to navigate that store at the moment, I can never find what I want. Which strengthens the argument that this is required to support the current store functionality, rather than necessarily indicating that it is connected to a new marketplace launch.

**OK, reality check time** Don’t all of those options just make it easier to: 1. Search and sort and new releases for sale before they sell out. 2. View and sort the collections which have been sold in the past, for example if you want to see which avatars were included in Gen 1 and their rarities. A secondary marketplace would be great, but all of this is functionality required to make the current store (for selling new avatars) easier, and doesn’t necessarily indicate that there is a marketplace for the secondary market coming.

The advantage this town has, and why individual businesses outside the region can’t follow, is that “Lugano app”, the single app that everyone must be using. User experience is such a big piece of the adoption puzzle. We need better solutions to help the common person have a standard method of paying in crypto at any store. This is where solutions such as the upcoming Binance prepaid Mastercard, which can be used anywhere that MasterCard is accepted, will be important. https://cointelegraph.com/news/mastercard-binance-to-launch-their-second-prepaid-crypto-card-in-latin-america

So many believe that Elon would do no wrong to Doge. Doge is just a tool to him, a tool he can use to make money. He will use it when it benefits him, and only then. 4. Twitter have been talking about their own payment platform this week, however keeping in mind it is fiat-first. They may just not want any competition. 5.

What is discussed in this post is why in the stock market I love broad-index ETFs. I have the belief that over the long term (10+ years) the stock market will improve in value. I don’t need to worry about “taking profits”, I just keep building into the same funds. I’m no good at cashing out and taking profits when it comes to crypto. I tend to build bags and hold, sometimes for too long.

Agreed. 3% is a relatively normal daily swing. It’s often difficult, if not impossible to link a daily change of only 3% directly to any one announcement. Sure; it was probably due to the inflation announcement, but it also may not be.

The majority of that list, in principle, make complete sense. The headlines alone drive fear, but it all comes down to the checks and balances required before they can be executed. For example the “unexplained wealth”; my assumption is that it would require sufficient input from the ATO etc before a search could take place. If you are declaring no income over several years, have no major previous windfall or connections to a legitimate business or family of wealth, yet claim benefits while living in a mansion and drive a Ferrari, I struggle to find much pity if they get searched. In fact, as a tax payer, I want this to happen.

They have started. A very recent example of that is in Brazil, where Binance were teaming up with Mastercard to offer prepaid crypto cards. I posted about it, but the post was taken down as it was a “partnership announcement” which is apparently not allowed to be posted. In that example it would allow someone to load up their wallets with crypto as normal, then go to any location which accepted Mastercard and buy something. At the time of payment the “local currency” to crypto conversion would be calculated. Basically seamless, and probably more of what we will see in the future.

Because the Fed increase was basically what was expected. Prices already accounted for that to happen. It wasn’t WORSE than expected, so that is a good thing. Prices would have also accounted for the possibility of a larger increase, they don’t need to worry about that part anymore. Therefore prices go up. …that’s just one narrative, the other is that crypto is highly irrational and could have been a million other things.

I’m not really on Twitter, but your explanation makes this sound like the Mango Markets “hack”. It wasn’t really a technical hack though, more so poorly designed trading logic (business logic) on the platform which could be leveraged if you had enough funds to throw at it. Guessing this may be quite similar.

There are already some vendors who have products, that part has already started. So if your objective is to increase awareness as a payment option, and you want to see more vendors supporting it, it’s your turn to seek out those vendors and buy now. If you are waiting for all the vendor options to be available before you start, then you are doing what the mainstream (who haven’t yet adopted) are doing. It’s not the “wrong” thing to want to wait. But if your objective is to “spread the word”, then you need to practice what you preach. Nobody wants another crypto preacher at the dinner table who has no real world use cases.

The network part doesn’t really bother me as much, although I understand your comment. The specific app requirement is the part which significantly changes the user buying experience. However, it’s also possible that this app/company are used all over South Africa already, so maybe this same app is being used in many smaller stores too.

Difficult to do that categorization. 95%+ of what we see are scams of some type.

I thought this was a repost at first, because it felt like the trial was only announced a few weeks ago, can’t believe it’s been 3 months already. > To pay with BTC, customers will need a Bitcoin Lightning Wallet and the CryptoQR scanner app from CryptoConvert, which is linked to the Bitcoin Lightning Wallet. The payment process requires users to scan an item's QR code through the CryptoQR app and then proceed to the Lightning Wallet to confirm the rate and complete the transaction. I’m not too fond of the requirement to use specific apps, but I guess we need to see this as just the beginning of the technology and things can only get better.

Depressing, but well established that financial cases take that amount of time. Madoff was a similar timeline from memory. SBF won’t be sentenced for at least the same. The key thing is that in the end they need to get the appropriate sentence. In a way, every day he is walking free now, is almost an extension of his eventual sentence.

Agree, a 100% rise in Bitcoin (2x) would be definitely within the realms of possibility. Crypto is so volatile that we can see a 30%+ in a single week …we just don’t know if it is green or red.

The other proposal is quite different though.

**A lot of traditional finance have valid and accurate opinions.** But due to this being a “crypto” sub the narrative every time needs to be about how they are dinosaurs and every piece of advice they give is inaccurate. A lot of people in here are angry because they struggle to “win” in the old model, so refuse to listen to anything that comes out of it. This is a fault of also the Reddit voting system, which encourages echo chambers. Ok, come at me.

I’m not really understanding the value that tokens are bringing to this space at the moment. It’s just a new form of “in game currency”, which has existed for decades in games. People have been buying/selling in-game items on eBay since the early 00s. I guess it makes all that marketplace easier, but the focus of games should be to make the gameplay better. Each time a crypto company designs a game it seems to be “crypto first, gameplay second” and they almost always fail.

We learned plenty of things. His cult just grew stronger though at the time. But this last 3-6 months it does feel as though the tide is turning. For example, people who made 10X+ on Tesla are now starting to see heavy losses, and there is nothing like losing a big slab of money to make people think twice about listening to him again. It will be interesting to see what the situation is in 6-12 months from now. His run as the known “visionary” may be coming towards a close, as he transitions into the “crazy guy who had some good ideas a while ago”.

Ok? My comment won’t fit the narrative you are looking for. 1. Almost every town in every city in the world has at least one bank branch. 2. “Banking” in general offers a very different value proposition to a single online-only digital currency. 3. Comparing the two is rather meaningless. It’s like saying “the car industry” (sales, maintenance, repairs, car aftermarket part sales, car spray painters, blah blah blah) uses significantly more power than building a particular model of Tesla.

The takeaway, which is correct, is that Logan Paul can quickly release a message to a much bigger audience than a newspaper can reach. It provides them the power to spin the narrative. We saw it on this occasion too, where he came out on his channel and began to tell his people that these were lies and that he was going to sue. Of course he retracted that in the end. But if it is influencers spreading fake news, the traditional media doesn’t have the “viewership power” to get the investigates truth out there.

Don’t confuse a poll/survey of 2000 people with an accurate representation of the country. Survey samples are often stacked (not necessarily intentionally) towards certain demographics/biases to suit the desired narrative. For example, if we wanted a number higher than “1 in 6”, we would survey 2000 people who all live in a small remote town. Want a number less than 1 in 6?

Completely agree. It’s the reason why I created an account on Reddit, and the reason why I actively participated in Internet forums of various types since the 90s. Helping, sharing opinions, building weird internet relationships. Replying can often take a lot of effort, and I want to know that it going towards a genuine source.

Those are all spot on. We normally see “extremely well written” original posts, then the OP in the comments section is either: 1. Writing in a completely different style; or, 2. Missing.

Bots as an “FAQ” is a very different scenario to people using them to post with the illusion of the post being “original content and the thoughts of the OP”. Even as an FAQ, they rely on exactly how a question is framed. A human well versed in a subject can often interpret when another human is asking the wrong question, or is missing knowledge in a different space. A bot can’t. The data source for the current bots are somewhat dated, which is something many people don’t know. They don’t have all real-time news. They don’t know what was discussed in this sub yesterday or how to interpret subreddit rules. They are still missing a lot.

But are each of these difficulty increases also leading to more centralized mining? Miners over time need to be more and more efficient in order to be profitable. Originally you could mine on a desktop, then you needed to be part of a pool, then you needed a mining rig in a pool. Etc etc. Will we reach a state where only the biggest of mining companies will survive, where they need mega operations and scale in order to deliver a profit?

It’s when people pass them off as their own “original content and thoughts” that annoys me. They aren’t OPs original thoughts, they are OP having someone else write an article for them, then stealing that content. As a straight “knowledge base” or “FAQ” these bots can have some value, but that’s not what we are seeing here. At least when flagged as being bot generated we can take that into account.

What about “being genuine”? We come to Reddit with an expectation that we are conversing with a person, and read their thoughts for the purpose of having a conversation. If they read buzzwords, at least they can keep using those same buzzwords in the comments section, at which point they can either be “educated” or just proven to be a fraud. If we are reading a bot post then that isn’t the persons true thinking. They also won’t be engaging in the comments section with those exact same thoughts. The conversation and back-and-forth is gone. It is people wasting time on comments trying to help OP grow. It adds no value to Reddit, or society.

It goes against the spirit of what Reddit is intended to achieve. Reddit is meant to be about humans conversing and building communities. Original free-flowing thoughts, which for Reddit as a company also means “original human content”. Chat bots aren’t really creating any “new” content, they are only ever really spinning old data already available on Google. They lack “creativity”.

Chat GPT will never fully know if it “understands” a subject, well at least not in the near future, but instead has a fixed dataset and will attempt to match a question to that dataset in the best way possible. It’s fine for straight FAQ style questions/articles, but has gaps beyond that. Which is probably a good thing, as it is nice knowing that humans can still add a level of value above a bot.

I’m not quite following what you mean. Your vault is in a way “tied” to your Reddit account, but the vault has its own “password” for accessing, which is unrelated to your normal Reddit account password. But the vault is like any other wallet, with the recovery phrase it can be restored to metamask or anywhere else you choose in order to view and access/transfer your moons.

The passing fad comments were early/mid 90s, other than by those who had no idea. AOL had been sending out trial cds for 6 years by 1999.

Quite a few problems in the article: > The comments came after 5 percent of crypto-asset firms (41 out of 300) who applied to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) failed to meet the minimum standards required for registration. 1. Those numbers are incorrect somewhere. 41 of 300 is NOT 5%. 2. Crypto is a new space, regulations/requirements are also new, it should not be a surprise to anyone that only 5% of applications meet all requirements on the first attempt. This is just a sign that the rules and processes are all immature and over time as people learn and understand the processes and what is required they will be able to get a higher first time success rate. It’s also NOT saying that the 95% who failed the first time didn’t go back and update some things and are now in compliance. The changes required for those 95% to comply could have been as minor as a single evidence document or signature missing in the submission, or as major as a key function not being in place, but they’ve lumped them all together.

This is why I DCA (not just in crypto, but primarily in ETFs), to simplify this process and take the decision making out of it.

OP is severely lacking in other parts of his life, first and foremost with his relationship. Things aren’t looking good for OPs marriage, but at least he will have 725 ETH and a perfect credit score.

Or if this story is true, OP just doesn’t understand how marriages work. How, regardless of the profits that are being made, when you are married you are part of a team and can’t act as a rogue operator anymore. There needs to be some level of consultation/informing the other half. That the point isn’t that “you have a plan to be OK in the long term”, but instead that “the other half understands and is on board with the plan and sees that you will be ok”.

It’s a massive break, most people would have suspected that she was dead or would never turn up.

What a wild ride this one is turning out to be! Just because they’ve linked the apartment to her still puts them a long way away from actually capturing her though. At the least, as pointed out in the article, the apartment can be somewhat confirmed as connected to her her, seized, and sold off to recover funds.

A lot of the prices listed by OP are absolute best case. Sure, it will be cheaper, but not THAT cheap for most people. - Flights are more like $800-1000 - Travel to/from airports at each end - Food while in transit - Travel to/from the clinic if the hotel isn’t a walkable distance - Passport (if you don’t already have one) - $30 might get you a hotel room, but not a very nice one. Budget more like $100/night or more for this. Remember that you are recovering from surgery, you don’t want to be in a dump. - 2 weeks of buying all meals out, whereas if you were in Oz you would probably be cooking at home - I assume most people would want to do some sort of tourist stuff while there too, they are using half of their annual leave entitlement after all. Or you could still do it in the absolute cheapest way possible as suggested by OP, but you would have a relatively miserable time on your 1-2 weeks of annual leave.

Any personal finance subreddit should be able to give you the basic advice in this space. Things like stocks, real estate, high interest savings accounts etc. Find one that is from your country, as laws and benefits vary significantly between locations. The hardest part is sticking with a plan for the long term, as it isn’t as “exciting” as crypto, but I would say is much more reliable and tried and tested over the long term.

If you are comfortable being forced to cover with cash in the future, regardless of what is happening in the world or your life that has forced the price down to those new unexpected lows, then go for it I guess. If BTC drops to $5k it means some type of considerable event has occurred and a lot of people have decided that BTC/crypto is no longer a good idea.

Removing the emotional aspect from trading is exceptionally difficult, and DCA is a great strategy. Not just in crypto either, but stocks are another area.

When OP says “friends fathers company”, many are imagining some big corporation. It’s just as likely that it is a small 5 person company and the fathers friend is the owner. Many small businesses don’t have proper backup systems in place. 1. How was OP contacted about this? Have they confirmed with the story in-person/over the phone directly with the friends father? 2. Is the friends father than owner, or just an employee? If only an employee, then don’t touch it, let the owners sort it out. 3. How well do you know the friends father? Are they a life long friend? If you have validated that the request is legitimate and decided to lend, this is almost the same risk as providing them a temporary cash loan. Sometimes you get it back, sometimes you don’t. **OR** you ask your friends father to give you cash as the only problem was apparently the exchange limitations not the money, and you in return transfer the Bitcoin (you act as an exchange). Which is much safer. ALSO note though that the transfers may be considered as tax events where you are, so have a think about how that may work.

Cyber insurance isn’t nearly as popular as you may believe. And where companies have it, it doesn’t necessarily cover all events and all costs. It won’t necessarily pay a ransom, and they may not have proper backups to restore either.

There has been a whole lot incorrectly interpreted about that creditor list, with people assuming it means they are in some special “partnership” with FTX.

You have likely interpreted the list incorrectly. While you are correct that SOME on the list have been fooled, others are just creditors who haven’t been paid for services. For example, LinkedIn and Dropbox are likely products which were used by FTX and they just haven’t paid their bills. Anyone could start up a new company and get credit terms with many of these big businesses. Don’t confuse this with a true “partnership”.

Your crypto forever sits on the public blockchain. It is assigned to you. That’s where it actually lives. 2. All a wallet does is show you a view of everything that you own. 3. You hold a secret password (phrase) which allows you to view your crypto in various types of wallets. It doesn’t have to be a hardware wallet, there are free software wallets such as metamask too.

Many of these claims will be for just a few thousand dollars. Items like “Dropbox” and “LinkedIn” in the list likely mean that FTX used their online services and just haven’t paid their invoices.

And there is a fat fine in there for Binance too of $3m. The way Coinbase word it makes it sound like it is a complete nightmare to obtain the registration. But rules are rules. They didn’t have it, and it seems though they continued operating anyway.

> Got from Newcastle to Sylvania with it (only used it to get as far as Marrickville, though. I knew the rest of the way as I used to ride that area on my push bike). You probably did it the hard way, there are not THAT many roads in Sydney. GPSs often just complicate things. Newcastle, F3, left onto Pacific Highway at Hornsby, right onto Ryde Road at Pymble, straight ahead until you get to Sylvania about 45 minutes later.

And you’d start out in your own suburb, working out which roads got you to the shops and parks etc. Then slowly keep expanding as you needed to get to new places. There are not really THAT many major roads in Sydney. About a dozen major roads will get you within a few kilometers of most destinations in Sydney. Then you just used the street directory to fill in the gaps.

Sure, but it’s infinitely hard being able to find multiple anonymous accounts all by the same person in order to get all the clues. If you have used a single Reddit account since you were young, there will be clues everywhere from where they went to school and grew up, right through to where they currently live and work. Anything said years ago can come back and bite them if that account is doxxed. Spreading over accounts reduces risks significantly.

The main thing in my opinion is that we have reached a point where we likely have an understanding of the full impact of the FTX collapse. Talk of the collapse of other major exchanges has largely finished. It was always going to take some time for this to happen. We are just working towards the “pre-FTX” price, rather than this being some start of a bull run, in my opinion. But anything can happen in crypto. So who knows.

It all depends on what you want crypto to look like as an end state. The giants are the ones who do the marketing and try to make it easier for new people to come onboard. This is a relatively tech-savvy sub, but there aren’t too many here who haven’t on-ramp/off-ramped to crypto without using a big centralized exchange. Without them, crypto would still be a small “nerdy” online group of enthusiasts. For some people, that might be just fine. But it’s not why the majority of us are here.

I think you have misunderstood. Surprisingly, his comment actually DOES make some sense. Bitcoin has a lot of volatility, like shares also have. Their prices bounce around usually by at least a couple of percent a day. He is talking about business owners using Bitcoin as a currency for daily trading, and that this would cause significant issues due to the volatility of the currency, as your pricing would need to swing daily and a bill the equivalent of $1000 today could be $5000 in a month when it is due to be paid. This point is actually valid. Bitcoin and crypto isn’t current viable for daily business operations for many. I can’t believe I am agreeing with something Jim Cramer has said.

Note that direct from Vanguard there is usually a $5000 minimum investment when initially starting up new investment choices. After that you can put in as little as $200 at a time. There is likely also slightly more paperwork involved. If I were doing things again, I’d probably go ETFs via a broker for more flexibility. But I’m still happy with going Vanguard directly. An advantage of Vanguard is that at the end of the financial year you get a single piece of paper, which tells you everything you need for tax across all of your funds. Small advantage, but still an advantage.

Crypto in most cases is meant to largely be decentralized, with very low running costs. A physical store feels as though we are trying to force our way back towards the traditional banking model, where costs for marketing and customer service will quickly also rise. What’s the primary goal of the crypto project? Stick with that.

I understand the logic, however any new exchanges that list moons will quickly be known within this sub anyway. So just add them to an FAQ/Wiki page. Anyone with half an interest in moons can list off MEXC and Gate.io as being places for exchanging them. As we have limited banner space it would also take away from the burning of moons by other advertisers.

With each new generation release we must become more selective of what we choose to buy. While some artists will be in demand, I strongly suspect that soon we’ll begin to see a few go quite poorly on the resale market. Whereas Gen 1 was like shooting fish in a barrel, buy any for $10 on Reddit and it could be sold for a profit on OpenSea.

Reddit has been good for building the awareness of NFTs for many. We now have potentially millions more NFT owners. As far as trading volumes though, it’s hard to tell because Reddit collections are annoyingly split up on OpenSea, but they rarely make the Top 10 leaderboard for volumes. Instead we see something like the Trump NFT release do $1m+ in a single day and getting all the headlines.

True, but those volumes (buying banners, AMAs etc), are still tiny in comparison to the volume earned by users each month. This situation may change over time though, particularly if one of the big exchanges (CB, Binance) were to list them.

True, but “why” would anyone want to do that? If they don’t want to hold everything within Reddit, or buy externally, there are plenty of more trusted alternatives for how to store your coins. And if you are going to the effort of buying “moons”, I’d say that you are the type of person who is more likely to use self-custody for them and pop them in metamask or similar:

A blockchain and wallet aren’t a concern. It’s the “JPM Coin” that makes the difference. That’s the part which competes with Bitcoin. So anything that they say must take into consideration that they are effectively a competing business. It’s like reading “Binance CEO suggests not to use Coinbase”.

And it’s happened at other major companies for decades too. If someone knows something is going to go up in price, it is very tempting to get in on that action! The part I am more concerned about is if any of these purchases have been made at the direction of the company, for example the price manipulation of BTC.

There will be more scams, there will be more highs, there will be more lows. While of course I hope for the success of crypto, it is still far from guaranteed. The CBDCs will all start gaining in popularity soon (pushed by governments), so will be interesting to see what impact they have on asset allocation. Many investors who normally put into BTC and similar may instead begin switching over to those. That would change things significantly, probably for the worse. The crypto landscape will look very different in 10 years to what it does now.

**TLDR:** It’s all a complex way of saying “you can create temporary wallet addresses that will secretly redirect to your primary wallet”. The stick drawings were nice though to help understand it. This seems like a great step for ethereum, as it always seemed a bit weird to me that someone can see ANYTHING I move in/out of my wallet with crypto in general.

You’re missing the point. The question is “what do you expect that ANY elected politician should do for you?”. If the answer is “send positive vibes”, then vote for Danny. But if you also want someone who can advocate causes outside of this scope such as business, infrastructure, health and whatever else and effectively influence people in power, Danny probably isn’t that person.

But to be fair, how many ties to government would you EXPECT any large financial institution to have? The answer is “many”. They all need to network with government to advocate for whatever they are doing.

Let’s put all of our hate of politicians aside for one moment. Sending messages about “peace, love, hope, tolerance” is very different to being an effective politician. He would need to take action on other community issues too and effectively argue them within parliament. He doesn’t even really do his own media appearances right now. He is just an old man with a message that people resonate with.

Just because he hasn’t touched the wallets that we know about, doesn’t mean he is dead. I suspect that there are multiple other wallets that we don’t know about. I can’t blame the guy for wanting to stay completely anonymous. Loss of anonymity is a terrible thing for most people.

It doesn’t include Coinbase either, who are up with Binance as the biggest exchanges. This is more an article based on the writer having some data available for a few exchanges, so made an article just for those.

Yes, and no. On the exchange side, Coinbase is the obvious exclusion from the list, however that would only bring it up another 5% or so. The biggest of the crypto holders are often using self-custody. You can have a million small users, each with $1000 in holdings, but a single whale in self custody can be bigger than all of those million combined. It’s the age old scenario where a relatively small number of people make up the bulk of the %.

Impressive, but this is also exactly what the worst case scenario “should” be. Cardano, or any other crypto, needs to be built with 100% availability in mind. Any kind of outrage is unacceptable. Cardano seems to have done this right (in this instance at least), but many haven’t. Looking at you Solana.
