do you think GPUs being used for mining crypto is still giving them a boost?
I've seen some emerging coins that use non-GPU mining systems but nothing that would affect current application too dramatically, if it's impact on sales isn't negligable
but I do recall a pretty big spike in demand and price not too far back
i just bought in, might not hold but expecting another spike at lesat
chart looks pretty good atm
did anyone get in on ZCL last week?
it still may have some legs and is going to award a coin called btc private to holders supposedly on 1/8. Potential dump at that time though, I'd be careful.
I have a very small position, most of the gains were already had but could see some more. Will prob sell just prior to fork after what happened with XVG. NEO looking good, XRP will probably keep pumping too.
btw its been going down :[
@ThisIsChris If you have BTC I wouldn't be terribly concerned if it went down. While there is some inverse correlation, I haven't noticed it to be terribly strict. BTC is becoming a medium of exchange for not only BCH but the vast number of altcoins available on the market. If you have only explored coinbase and GDAX you may want to check out Bittrex or Binance to familiarize with altcoins, if you haven't already. At this stage in the game, that's where the biggest profits are. :]
This may be a crazy prediction, but given the buzz of NEO heading into 2018 NEO GAS may be a second chance at the gains NEO has seen. I doubt it will go as high as this guy predicts but thought I'd share. Obviously do your own research and trade at your own risk. https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@haejin/gas-is-ready-to-power-a-233-profit-target-0-008724-btc
was thinking more of a long term play, but whatever! Currently waiting for it to correct and rebuy. Also NEO is at a good buy price right now.
right, whey a little rough on the stomache was gonna give it a shot
"risk of testicular cancer" is enough for me to pay a bit extra
I'll definitely give it a shot, been looking for an alternative
that was a lot of volume, can't ever say for sure
no not for long anyways, I'm going in opposite direction, put on 20 lb since starting back up at gym, 150 to 170
not sure I'm organized enough to document everything but I'll work towards it... I tend to do better with shooting from the hip
easy to over estimate without tracking, in many things
it's this stuff "six star" pretty standard I think, just grabbed at walgreens
actually the whole label ripped off when I opened it so that's all I can tell you lol
yea that might help, I'll use a generic one and then buy the vegi
FOMO kicked in (Fear of Missing Out) rebought ha. That post I linked however was saying the big gains will come around febuary
good scalping on BTC lately tbh
but have noticed that alt-coin surges usually follow BTC surge post correction
jumping back and forth depending on state of BTC can be a good strat. I'm currently in 4 altcoins some safer than others as I hone some programming skills.
I wrote a scalping program in python to interact with the GDAX API for extra quick entry and exits, working through the APIs can not only give access to things like stop-loss protection which may be unavailable on the exchanges (on bittrex and binance for instance,) but an edge on entry/exit priority. GDAX for instance seems to prioritize market orders executed through the API over ones done through the site interface. DM me if interested. It requires IDLE or some python3 interpreter and the installation of some python packages through cmd or terminal, works on mac, linux, or windows.
I was able to double up scalping the BCH release that way.
You can use a debit or credit card to convert USD to BTC, for BTC to USD I believe you need to connect to a bank account
I see a "Bank Wire" option as well, but have not done that personally.
https://www.weusecoins.com/en/find-the-best-bitcoin-wallet/ from this article, "Electrum" may be your best option for an offline "desktop" wallet
I'd recommend using a VPN to anyone trading cryptos. I use this one https://nordvpn.com/
@Volkmom if the bank you have isn't working with coinbase, while it's an annoying extra step, you might consider opening an account with a more mainstream bank for that sole purpose.
ah, that sucks. the fees can be steep, can't believe it's that bad
what I'd recommend is converting to BTC and then LTC before sending to coinbase, where you can sell it for USD and cash out
I'd also check out binance as an exchange, they have pretty low fees, not sure if more or less than poloniex
yea, much cheaper on binance it seems
I recommend converting to LTC as the transaction fees are cheaper. To clarify, there are exchange fees and transaction fees, recommending LTC for lower transaction fees and Binance for lower exchange fees. (nevermind I mentioned GDAX, deleted that part, extraneous info.)
I see, that should do the trick
that's too bad about the fee fiasco :[
sounds like you are getting the hang of it though, hopefully smooth sailing from here
I lost a chunk messing with some weird wallets when I started
Good to hear, lmk if any other questions
It may be, but ZH is a pretty doomsayer-y site.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Ac7ap_MAY This shows some striking examples of how bubbles can be artificially created and deliberately popped, while also alluding to benefits of economic fascism or at least "productive lending."
BTC has been a little funky since futures were introduced, as they've used paper gold to control physical gold for a long time it wasn't the greatest news. The hope is that some new crypto will keep popping up to act as a release valve for manipulation. And when Dimon says "government" he means Jews.
The only issue I see with not naming them, is that when we attack their mechanisms of oppression, they retain credibility to counter those attacks perpetually; which we've seen over and over again. It's a tough strategic question that I'm still on the fence about. I think the merit of naming them, while it's a much steeper uphill battle, is being able to discredit their defense of these mechanisms.
Not to mention the labyrinthine political understanding required to surgically attack these mechanisms may be beyond the average citizen, rather than giving them a single, simplified focal point of an enemy.
To keep trudging forward in both directions as we basically have been seems to be the only answer. I do see progress.
thinking of moving some profits into mining
have you heard of BURST?
I need to learn more about all the tech, just starting a data structures course which I'll follow with a cryptography and then cryptocurrency course
hasn't stopped me from speculating though, why do you say "if it doesnt constantly overwrite bits on free space then it could be really good." if you don't mind briefly explaining?
any particular reason why Monero for mining? Besides it being a good coin?
it's a solid one for sure
I know nothing of Gemini tbh, checking it out
Yes, coinbase also owns the site GDAX.com which is an exchange with charts and more intracate ways to buy/sell
for altcoins there are a variety of popular exchanges, some I can think of are www.bittrex.com www.binance.com www.gate.io www.huobi.pro www.poloniex.com www.bitfinex.com
I end up using a bunch because some have the coin I want but not another etc etc
who turned off the money faucet?
imagine my surprise ^ my whole stacks in an ETH based ICO atm :'[ dist. on 11th hopefully I get 3x returns and then it recovers 😅
I haven't read this yet, but came across and figured some might like to have it, supposedly the missing chapters of 200 Years Together:
maybe a bit old (1962) but could also give interesting insight into the poltical landscape then.
probably many warnings of things that have indeed taken place
