What Chris said.
How do we sort out the Tether situation?
I could see it going wrong if everyone sells at the same time
hahaha is this for real? There is a fiat currency built on top of non-existent 'digital' currency build on top of electricty wasting tech that makes gaming graphics card had to get. I can't even tell who is jewing who anymore.
BTC trickling up since news of successful Lightening Network uses have been coming out. Checkout /r/Bitcoin for more examples like this https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/7rkunw/lightning_the_future_just_arrived_at_my_doorstep
/r/Bitcoin is heavily censored, I don't trust anything from that sub
That's true, it's a pro-Bitcoin subreddit. That being said, I'm interested in any news that makes any crypto more valuable. Even though there are many alternative cryptocurrencies that introduce improvements over certain features of BitCoin's technology, I am still interested in any improvement to BitCoin's technology because I think investors' biggest concerns are about solutions to scaling problems in blockchain technology and BitCoin's transaction volume puts it at the frontier of needing innovative scaling solutions. If Bitcoin can't scale then we will need to fundamentally rethink if and how to use cryptocurrencies because if Bitcoin can't scale then eventually any other cryptocurrency will have to confront and try to solve scaling problems, with lots of market uncertainty.
Heavy censorship and "pro-Bitcoin" are not the same thing.
Criticism is literally not allowed, shoah'd immediately in /r/Bitcoin
You will not find a comment there that critiques the lightning network.
There is no debate or discussion.
@Tanner - SC Is there a website where I can compare fees and transaction times?
Blockchain.info shows that for BTC and BCH, but not others. One might exist for other coins, I’m just not aware of one.
@here I try to give a warning a week about risk in investing, instead this week I give you this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1xqSZy9_4I
lesson of that vid: hodl
Sad story. Also, so much for Britain's gun control.
Why the beginning of the end? I thought that was good news?
@Anthony Sealy - MO haha, yeah I heard BTC is cracking the 10k resistence?
posting current setup
using an i7 processor cause i happened to have one but you can add 2 more cards and it would still be under 3k
1070 cards btw
@Deleted User that's awesome man, do you make money with that thing? How much/long did it take to set up?
took me awhile to set up cause first time moving it from a closed case (my original computer) to this. doing it again with all the parts would take me an hour or two. longest part is setting up the case.
going to only be mining privacy coins and right now xmr is profitable. might go for electroneum in the future.
Come back Internet money. 😥
I lost a little. I only had $100 in. It got up to $140, but now it's $83. It's not a big deal or anything, but it makes me sad that it's going down. Is the bounce back coming soon?
@micbwilli you can't count on any bounce back soon. It could even be years. It has a lot more way down it can still go.
This time last year it was about 1000 dollars
@micbwilli you were wise to only put in money you could afford to lose. I know it sounds weird to say "good job" when someone loses money, but I think by only putting in money you could afford to lose you made a good investing decision, the luck factor of this just didn't play out this time.
