IPFS— The New-gen Tech Revolution, or Another Illusion?

IPFS— The New-gen Tech Revolution, or Another Illusion?
Founded in 2014, after 6 years of R & D as well as its expansion, and after nearly a year of extensive testing and preparation, IPFS (Interplanetary File System) was officially launched on the afternoon of October 15, 2020, UTC time. 12 hours after the mainnet went online, Its token price fluctuated between 50~70 USD/FIL. However, panic and pessimism began to spread between the IPFS community and FIL token holders. Based on the total amount of FIL (2 billion) and the unit price of 50 US dollars estimation, its market value has exceeded 100 billion US dollars, second only to BTC. As such a mega valued IPFS/FIL went online, if there is no enough application to support, the selling pressure after the FIL is gradually unlocked will become huge. According to calculations, on the first day of the mainnet launch, there will be 239,000 FILs to be sold. Assuming that the unit price is 30 USD, the released circulation will be 8 million USD. Assuming the unit price remains unchanged, the market will usher in a similar value on the 10th day. With a release amount of 15 million USD, it is very likely that the corresponding token price can be supported.
IPFS is a network transmission protocol designed to create persistent and distributed storage and sharing of files. In terms of its current active projects and companies, IPFS has added more than 5 billion files, involving multiple industries, and there are also many blockchain companies using this technology. When the IPFS mainnet and its Filecoin goes online, the market value will be based on the applications brought by the IPFS network. After Bitcoin and Ethereum, Filecoin is an upstart in the blockchain industry with a revolutionary technological breakthrough. The market predicts that Filecoin’s market value will surpass Bitcoin. Now let us analyze this project together that was given high hopes:
IPFS major features and disadvantages
The basic application of IPFS, Filecoin’s financial attributes and its incentive mechanism make it a very exciting global collaborative open source project. On this basis, the data of all mankind is stored in the IPFS network, and no one can tamper with it.
This magnificent scene provides at least three values ​​for us:
  1. It creates a storage network service that is license-free and trust-free. This is very important. When you want to access a digital file, you don’t need to get approval or filing from any organization, and strict certification. As for non-centralized trust, it does not require user to trust the supplier that provides storage services, which significantly reduces the cost.
  2. The successful application of IPFS will most likely enable all idle storage resources in the world to be gathered to form a network and be effectively used, and such a network is unprecedented.
  3. Through such a model, network redundancy can be effectively reduced, and the complete separation of data can be achieved. There is no need to store files in a fixed location, only the content needs to be stored in an IPFS and Filecoin network.
However, Plentiful in ideal yet bony in reality. The design flaws of the IPFS project make it difficult to truly apply in the practical environment. Its design flaws mainly focus in the following aspects:
  1. Cannot support hot data storage.
Based on the principle of data timeliness, the higher the frequency of data access, the greater the value of the data possess. At present, IPFS only supports cold data storage scenarios. The lack of support for network transmission makes it impossible to establish a transmission network for hot data, which means the lack of the most valuable support for the network.
  1. The disaster tolerance mechanism is missing.
Disaster tolerance means that when an IT system stops working due to an accident (such as fire, earthquake, etc.), the entire application system can be switched to another location so that the system functions can continue to work normally. IPFS / Filecoin does not provide reliable disaster recovery and recovery mechanisms for storage users. Storage miners arecentrally handling disaster recovery backup and recovery works, resulting in an increase in storage space redundancy by 2–3 times.
  1. The storage performance is reduced by more than 60 times.
The IPFS data verification mechanism is too ideal and complex, and its storage performance is more than 60 times lower than that of a traditional centralized storage system. 1TB files usually need to be verified for more than 10 hours and cannot be stored normally and efficiently.
  1. Centralized technology architecture.
IPFS requires pretty advanced hardware, which leads to a very high threshold for joining its storage network. At present, only specialized storage devices can join the IPFS network as storage nodes. This means that IPFS initially advertised to users that connecting ordinary idle storage and reducing storage costs, has become a flubdub. It is difficult to store the entire network in a centralized structure in a disguised form, which cannot greatly reduce the storage cost of the entire network and ensure the security of the entire network.
  1. Due to the lack of the decentralized governance mechanism, its governance is too despotic, leading to a certain harm to the participated communities.
The above are the main obstacles currently hindering IPFS and Filecoin. The good news is that some of them can be improved and perfected, while some are design mechanism problems and cannot be fixed. Let’s take a look at another project initiated in the tech circle in 2017 — -HOP:
What is HOP
The HOP protocol provides a decentralized and completely anonymous traffic service for people all over the world based on block chain. HOP combines P2P network transmission and block chain technology to establish a block chain micro-payment protocol based on the block chain transmission encryption protocol between P2P network bandwidth contributors and bandwidth users, and merge it into traffic mining. In the mining pool side, the whole protocol is built on the main network, which has Micro Payment and mining functions. In addition, HOP also supports traffic mining of ERC20 in any currency. So far, HOP is the only protocol that combines the above functions and is officially available in commercial application. It can provide terminal nodes for secure access to decentralized networks.
HOP features and comparison with IPFS
HOP and IPFS have certain similarities. The following table is a comparison of the two projects in terms of technology and application characteristics:

https://preview.redd.it/d4klovzngmt51.png?width=1178&format=png&auto=webp&s=f14f0b2290430f6861f6da27f2d1e47ed196b741
Why HOP might be a phenomenal project in the future
Compared with the disadvantages of IPFS which are not supporting for hot data storage, low storage efficiency, low disaster tolerance and the high threshold of providing storage capacity, The advantages of HOP are summarized as follows:
  1. High operating efficiency.
The smart micro-payment system runs payments with unlimited TPS, and the efficiency is 90% higher than Ethereum.
  1. High level of open source. Supports all ERC-20 token access.
  2. Low threshold of participation.
Any participant who has a certain fundamental knowledge of computer science and network technology can set up mining pools and miners.
  1. High scalability.
It can be combined with Starlink satellites, repeaters, sim/esim cards and mobile phones in actual application scenarios to form a next-generation distributed interconnected communication network globally.
At present, most of the participants of HOP are top tier tech specialists, famous investors and politicians with global vision. We believe that projects like HOP, due to the open source and far-sighted technical foundation, which can not only achieve internal self-consistent circulation, but also integrate well with external ecology. Just as water conservancy is invisible, HOP has unlimited inclusiveness and scalability, and has a strong platform-level vitality!
We are looking forward to the accumulation of HOP, bringing a revolution in technology and applications to the blockchain and the practical universe!

in July 2018, I attended a summer program that related to computer science, electrical engineering, and informatics; we learned several skills such as programming Python (including NumPy, Matplotlib, and Pandas) in the context of physical engineering concepts and the Raspberry Pi; I engineering a program comparable to the widespread arcade game “Wheel of Fortune”
hospital volunteer (transporter, a large source of my volunteer hours)
Bitcoin/general cryptocurrency trademiner, I've set up several ASIC miners and studied their stock trends to optimize the amount of money I make from them, although I put a hold on this activity when crypto started dying again
10-year piano player (stopped in 9th grade though, but I went to state-level festivals and got perfect scores on my performances), 5-year viola player (planning to qualify for the state festival this year), JV Tennis (memes), 7-year soccer player (stopped after 9th grade, though)
also I'm probably not gonna put this on my application, but out of enjoyment, my friend and I conducted a satire analysis on our in-class chemistry performance through research, usage of spreadsheet/database applications, and Python’s machine learning modules; essentially, we collaborated on our mutual objective for his project in that we sought to “predict” when our grades would drastically fall, and a psychological explanation as to why we, somewhat academically-oriented students, tend to make the most drastic shortcomings when it comes to in-class performance ( used long short-term memory in the structures of recurrent neural networks which served as a model for Keras, a Python deep learning API, to make a grade prediction based on learning the ups and downs of our previous grades)
not sure if this counts for anything, but in May of 2012, in a Nassau County-based competition that I took against high schoolers double my age at the time, I won first place for the highest amount of problems correct so that's pretty cool I guess
finally, I've done over-the-summer online research under the guidance of a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics I got the contact of during a visit to Princeton University (did his doctoral thesis under the mentoring of Terence Tao, a world-renowned Fields Medal recipient)
Other life circumstances:
recovering narcotics addict (I had an injury while playing soccer in the spring of 9th grade and got hooked for a year after I didn't need them anymore), violent/alcohol-ridden home situation; I've had some issues with mental health in 9th and early 10th grade but I think I'm doing better now yay

I really wanna make it into some kind of Ivy/T20 kinda school, but I'm open to any suggestions as to where I stand in college admissions. Also, because I took all those college math courses, I got permission from the undergraduate director of mathematics to transfer those into credits for a bachelor's degree at that state school, so I can graduate two years early (2023 instead of 2025) if I get accepted and enroll there as a full-time student.
I'd really appreciate any help! Thanks!

Monero, the Most Private Cryptocurrency

Monero, the Most Private Cryptocurrency
Written by the CoinEx Institution, this series of jocular and easy to understand articles will show you everything you need to know about major cryptocurrencies, making you fully prepared before jumping into crypto!

https://preview.redd.it/ryvcznqspe451.jpg?width=720&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5fa91e26288d7b0a624113ed21172cc9fd5624a3
Monero, or XMR for short, is an open-source cryptocurrency that is safe, reliable, private, and untraceable. It can run on Windows, Mac, Linux, and FreeBSD, and is known as one of the most private cryptocurrencies. In 2018, Monero already ranked 10th in terms of trading volume, with its market value beyond 1 billion US dollars, an evidence for its great fame in this field.
By a special method in cryptography, Monero ensures that all transactions remain 100% irrelevant and untraceable. Perhaps after reading this article, you will understand why it is so special and popular in the increasingly transparent and traceable cryptocurrency circle (After all privacy comes first!).
In fact, many large cryptocurrencies in the world are not anonymous. All transactions on Bitcoin and Ethereum are made public and traceable, which means that anyone can eavesdrop on transactions flowing into and out of the wallet. That has given rise to a new type of cryptocurrency called “privacy currency”! These “privacy currencies” hide encrypted transactions by adopting specific types of passwords. One typical example is Monero, one of the largest privacy cryptocurrencies in the world.
Monero was created on April 18, 2014 under the name BitMonero, literally the combination of Bit (Bitcoin) and Monero (the “coin” in Esperanto). In five days, the community decided to change its name to Monero.
Interestingly, Monero’s creators valued personal privacy and tried to behave in a low-key manner with pseudonyms instead of the real names. It is said that the Monero major contributor’s nickname is “thankful for today”, yet this guy has gradually disappeared from public view as Monero developed day by day.
Unlike many cryptocurrencies derived from BTC, Monero is based on the CryptoNote protocol. It is also the first branch based on the Bytecoin of CryptoNote currency. Here is some information about Bytecoin: BCN, for short, is a decentralized cryptocurrency with a high degree of privacy; it has open-source codes that allow everyone to contribute to the development of the Bytecoin network; and the Bytecoin network provides global users with instant private transactions that are not traceable and at no additional cost.
Yet, as a branch of BCN, Monero outshines its parent in reputation by being different in two ways. First, Monero’s target block time was reduced from 120 seconds to 60 seconds; second, the issuance speed was cut by 50% (which reverted to 120-second residence later, with the issuance time maintained and the reward for each new block doubled). By the way, during the fork, the Monero developers also found a lot of low-quality codes and then refactored them. (That is exactly what geeks will do)
Monero’s modular code structure was also highly appreciated by Wladimir J. van der Laan, one of the core maintainers of Bitcoin.
Monero values privacy, decentralization and scalability, and there are significant algorithm differences in blockchain fuzzification, which sets it apart from its peers. How private is it? Here are more details.
1. Safe and reliable
For a decentralized cryptocurrency, decentralization means that its network is operated by users; transactions are confirmed by decentralized consensus and then recorded on the blockchain irrevocably. Monero needs no third party to guarantee the safety of funds;
2. Privacy protection
Monero confuses all transaction sources, amounts, and recipients through ring signatures, ring confidential transactions, and invisible addresses. Apart from all the advantages of a decentralized cryptocurrency, it is by no means inferior in safeguarding privacy;
3. Unable to track
The sender, the receiver and the transaction amount of all Monero transactions must be anonymous by default. The information on the Monero Blockchain cannot be matched with physical individuals or specific users, so there is no trace to track;
4. Scalable
Everyone knows that Bitcoin’sability to process transactions has always been limited by the scalability issue; as we have mentioned before in the introduction of Bitcoin, the block size of 1MB makes things difficult. But Monero’s developers have created a system that allows the network to process more transactions when needed; what’s more, Monero does not have any “pre-set” restrictions on block size.
Of course, this also means that some malicious miners may block the system with large blocks. To prevent this from happening, Monero has worked out countermeasures: the block reward penalty of the system.
On October 18, 2018, Monero’s latest hard fork changed the consensus mechanism algorithm to CrypotoNight V8. In this hard fork, it introduced the BulletProff bulletproof protocol, which can also effectively reduce the transaction fee of miners without disclosing transactions
It is said that Monero will issue about 18.4 million XMR in around 8 years. Moreover, it eclipses its counterparts in distribution — with no pre-mining or pre-sale, all block rewards will be left to miners by means of the POW mechanism.
Here is the reward scheme of Monero in two stages:
  1. Acceleration: mine 18132000 XMR before May 2022;
  2. Deceleration: Deceleration starts right after 18132000 XMR are mined, and there will be a reward of 0.6XMR for each block mined afterwards. In this way, the overall supply will be kept on a small scale and decelerated.
Monero is also excellent in its development concept that is designed to be anti-ASIC from the very beginning. Here is a brief introduction to ASIC (Special Application Integrated Circuit).
Due to the specificity of ASICs, specially designed ASICs can usually have much higher hashrate than general CPUs, GPUs, and even FPGAs — that makes hashrate excessively centralized and makes it vulnerable to the monopoly of single centralized institutions. Yet the cryptonight algorithm used by Monero allows most CPUs and even FPGAs to get involved and get mining rewards, instead of making GPU the only one that can efficiently mine.
In other words, Monero’s core development team will modify the consensus mechanism algorithm and have a hard fork after some time to ensure its strength against ASIC and the monopoly of hashrate.
However, although Monero has been designed against ASICs to avoid centralization, nearly 43% of its hashrate is still owned by 3 mining pools; in addition, it is not a BTC-based currency, making it even harder to introduce some elements. Of course, Monero is not that newbie-friendly, and thus has not been widely accepted.
Yet each cryptocurrency has its own features. As long as Monero keeps improving its privacy, it will definitely attract increasing followers. If you are interested in Monero, welcome to CoinEx for exchange or trade.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Thursday, 21 May, 2020. Interesting things happened to Bitcoin. Dash still did great though.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Thursday, 21 May, 2020. Interesting things happened to Bitcoin. Dash still did great though.
The whole crypto economy stumbled when 50 really old BitCoin started moving. We’re talking Btc that was mined one month after the inception of Bitcoin and had never moved since then. Some thought this might be Satoshi himself. Interestingly, Craig Wright claims that address as his, and he no longer has the keys to it so it could never move. One of those things can’t be true. Sorry Craig, caught in yet another juicy lie. But anyway, enough of the gossip.
Dash stumbled quite a bit less than everybody else and continued to make excellent gains on the CBI data. Dash also posted an excellent number on the 24 hour data (71% win rate). Dollar value holding steady at $75 and change.

  1. Dash outperformed 13 of the 20 cryptos listed above us on CoinPaprika (65% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 30%
  2. Dash outperformed 7 of the 10 cryptos ranked below us (70% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 27%.
  3. In total, Dash outperformed 20 of the top 30 cryptos (67% win rate) on the 7 day time frame. The 30 day SMA* is 29%.
  4. Bitcoin dominance dropped 3/10ths to settle at 65.8%
  5. 27 of the top 30 cryptos beat Bitcoin (90%) on the 7 day data.
  6. On the 7 day time frame, 19 of the top 31 cryptos (61%) were in the green.
  7. On the 24 hour time frame, 4 of the top 31 (13%) cryptos were in the green.
  8. On the 24 hour time frame, Dash beat 21 of the top 30 cryptos (70%).
* The 30 day SMA is the Simple Moving Average for the last 30 days. It is represented with the red line. The blue line is the daily Dash performance based on the price change over a one week period. As always, this is not investment advise. Do your own homework. All crypto is inherently and unavoidably risky. Don’t invest more in crypto than you can afford to lose.
^ Dash vs the top 30 cryptos in the world. Uptrend confirmed. Well above the moving average and well above the 50% \"healthy\" win rate.

The red line is the percentage of the top 30 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 24 hour time frame.
The blue line is the percentage of the top 30 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 7 day time frame.
The 24 hour data (red line) tends to be very volatile anyway, so we were overdue for a down spike. And certainly this reflects people losing their sh!t over that ancient Bitcoin suddenly moving. My pet theory is that some OG miner decided to make Craig Wright look bad, but I have no evidence to support that. Well, except, who could resist making Craig Write look bad?? Never a dull day in crypto. Tune in tomorrow!

I've been in since May 2017, lessons learned, and some real talk.

I've only been in the crypto game since mid 2017. I remember back then when I was assessing the market, BTC was below $1k a few months earlier, LTC was around $4 that January and by the time I finally got in BTC had more than doubled to around $2,500 and LTC was $30. I thought ETH and XRP (and everything else) were just shitcoins because I didn't know shit and I just listened to the herd (Back then the argument was "Bitcoin is digital gold and LTC is digital silver and everything else is a scam.") Now, I'm pretty invested in several coins, because this market is anything but rational.
Screw off if you think otherwise. Try to think logically in this market, and you're going to get smacked in the face.
After exchanging my first fiat for crypto, in the next couple of months the market "crashed" and I was fearful. By crashed, I mean BTC went from $2,800 to $1,800. I just decided to let my cryptos ride. I pretended that money was gone, but I'd check prices every day for whatever damn reason.
I wasn't even putting that much in. Hell, I would spend more eating out and going to the bars every weekend with friends or work colleagues than I was dropping into BTC. It was pretty common that I'd drop $100 a night on sushi, beers, and Sake Bombs. But, when money you could get back loses value, it makes you feel dumb for putting money in. Logic is out the window when I can't get that $100 back from my sushi and drink purchases, but my crypto dropped 30% that week, so I was dumb for investing in crypto but not for my $500+ per month on eating out and drinking with friends.
Several weeks later, I was back to even on my crypto investments. Well shit, that was fast. Then I was suddenly up 25%. "Fuck it, I'm just putting money in. I'm not missing out."
By the the winter of 2017, I was up over 10x with my crypto speculation. My initial LTC went from $30 to over $350; my BTC went from $2,500 to $20,000. I also just threw $300-$1,000 here and there on random sub-200 market cap coins only to see them 6x in a few weeks.
I remember thinking how stupid I was for not buying during that dip down to $1,800, but how good of an investor I was because my gains. What a fucking dope I was.
I was sitting there looking at my account on December 10th, 2017. I was about to sell because I could have paid off my car and 50% of my student loans. I wasn't even using my car because I was in another country traveling.
"Nah, I can't sell. This is just the beginning; let's wait until I can pay off all my student loans" my delusional self said.
I never cashed out. I remember sitting there with a dude who had his GDAX account open after BTC "crashed" from $20k to $13k two weeks later. We just got back from surfing.
He was still sitting at $250,000 in his account and was nervous as shit. "What should I do?" he asked rhetorically. Then immediately answered himself, "It will rebound," he said, "it always does." This guy had been through the MTGOX hack and gave me plenty of advice while we surfed.
And I listened as if he was prophetic.
What a fucking dope I was.
When hopium is in the air, we all get irrational.
I still wonder about that guy and his cryptos. He went north back home for the Christmas holiday, while I headed south for more traveling, and I've never seen him again.
February 2018 was both euphoric and scary as shit. "Holy shit! BTC is under $10k I never thought it would be down here again. But it could keep dropping. But it was just $20k a month ago."
I was skeptical that it wouldn't keep dropping so I waited. Then, I didn't want to miss out. BTC was making a run from $6,500 up to testing $10k. "If it breaks $10k, I'm getting back in."
A short time later, it did break $10k, only to be hit a wall at $12k, then again...then, the inevitable crash to $6,200 happened where it fluctuated in August - November of 2018 up until, what, November 10th-ish when BCH shitfork shat out and then BTC-Shit-Vision and BTC-LMNOP started paying miners to mine their forked fork of BTC and everyone shat themselves as the market tanked yet again.
That was it for me. That was the day I stopped caring. I remember thinking how stupid I was to invest so much time in this.
You can't predict this shit.
I didn't regret investing in crypto, I regret all the time spent looking at my portfolio, trying to time the market, pretending I was some guru in my head because I threw $300 at POE when it was less than a penny and weeks later it was selling for $0.21 and could buy another trip to whatever country I wanted.
Sure, you can use TA to see what support or resistance is there, but it's still a 50-50 chance whether Fake Satoshi is going to spoof trade or some rando is going to drop three 7,000 BTC market buys to break through resistance.
So, what did I learn through this whole experience?
Other than what I've already stated (You have no way to predict whether it's breaking through resistance or crashing through support).
I just remember the main thing that has persisted this last two years. "I wish I could go back in time to when BTC was around $3,000 and LTC was $30."
When BTC dropped below, $4k that was heaven. I never thought it would get back to when I was buying when I first got into the market in 2017.
So, I bought, and I bought hard.
This time around, I have strong buy strategies and sell strategies.
They are set; no question.
For me, I'm not selling until two weeks before the LTC halving in August.
Even then, I'm only selling my LTC for BTC. Then I'll sell 25% of my BTC for fiat 2 weeks before the BTC halving in 2020.
I will never have less than my preferred number of BTC's, ETH's, LTC's and a few others.
Don't follow my advice here, I'm just saying I know what I want and what my strategy is.
You need to have a strategy to buy and strategy to sell. Be reasonable. I previously had a "strategy." It was once I could pay off my student loans with all of my crypto gains minus taxes, I would sell. Yeah, well, looking back if I would have just sold when could pay off my car and 50% of my student loans, I would have been able to invest even more when BTC was down in $3,xxx range and LTC was $22-$35, etc from December 2018 through March 2019.
DCAing is the way to go. No question. You don't need to do TA, you don't need to check your portfolio, you don't need to do shit but either 1) setup an automatic buy order with your exchange or 2) login and buy whatever you want.
You have your buy strategy (DCA at x interval) and you have your sell strategy.
Figure it out. Don't pretend you're gonna time the market. Don't pretend you're some guru.
Those people, like me, learn the hard way.
No TA, no waiting for google searches of BTC to increase, no waiting for BAKKT, no waiting for Faktoshi to shut the fuck up.
Before November 2018, I would only throw money when BTC was on a run. "Oh, we're finally on the way up. It's time to buy!" Like when it went from $2,800 up to $6,200 in the summer 2017, then from $10k to $20k in late 2017. Or when it went from $6,200 back up to $10,000 then to $11,900 in February of 2018.
I would think I could time the market. What a pathetic loser, right?
Some people grow up in this market like the cable version of themselves only to transition to the directv version. Listen to us dopes that have been there and done that.
Learn from our mistakes, but also don't think that we have all the damn answers.
Anyone that comes in here acting like the 2nd coming of Craig Wright's dumpster twin, you can be rest assured they are as delusional as Justin Sun. The problem is, even if they are delusional, this market is anything but rational, so they might just be proven right enough for you to think you should follow their advice.
This shit is crazy. Stop acting like you've got it figured out.
Nobody does, but it feels good to have confidence in this random speculation, right?
I'm here to tell you this. My life has drastically improved since November 2018 when I started viewing Crypto investments like a bill. Every two weeks, I would send money from my paycheck to my exchange. Then, I'd buy a certain amount every single week after it had cleared.
That money, is all but "gone." It was a "bill" I paid.
When the market is going down, I send more fiat and I buy more crypto. When it is rising, I still buy, but not as much; I pull back. You may say I'm trying to catch a falling knife. I just learned that the way I was investing before was bad practice. I'd rather people think I'm trying to catch a falling knife than to feel that FOMO and only buy when the market is up.
Right now for example, I'm not buying this week. Not because I think I know what hell is going to happen, but because it's my strategy to not chase a run, and to spend more when it drops.
I'll wait until next weekend and see what the market is doing.
What happens in between now and next weekend, I don't give a shit.
Could I miss out on another run? Sure, but I don't give a shit. Maybe it's because I'm 2 years in and I've seen this shit before, or maybe it's because I've been buying BTC when it was around $3,000 both in 2017 and just about a month ago, so I feel fortunate to have gotten another chance at BTC at $3,xxx.
I also learned my lesson that fakeouts happen. I've been burned enough to not give a shit about being BTC going from $3500 to $5,200 in the last, what, 5 weeks?
Been here, done it, don't give a shit.
I don't know if this helps anyone, but seeing the last two years of this shit, I don't care about some random 30% pump. I also don't care that BCH is up 86%, or ADA is up whatever it is. I'm not into them, but if you made gains, I'm happy for you.
I'm serious too.
Maybe you're new to this game, or maybe you've only been in since $20k. If so, you're still here, and there are plenty others like you. I'm not a BTC maximalist, I don't think LTC is the truth, I don't think only ETH is the dApp platform.
I don't know shit. I'm just some speculator that is speculating on some of this sit.
There are also plenty of people that were like me in 2017 that are waiting in the wings, only to buy when the market is on the rise. There are plenty more that buy when it's rising then set stop losses that whales will fish for only to wreck the market in a day then to see a bounce back even stronger while those people FOMO back in.
Also, the turd version of satoshi could start shitting in public this week and the media could write about how Satoshi is literally shitting on a physical Bitcoin as we speak and some shitcoin creator then posts a Twitter video that goes viral about how the hashrate and energy consumption of the satoshi shit-pile is not sustainable and then some whale market sells down to below the new TA shit-support level of $4,400 and then all the dopes with stop losses in that range get shit fucked only to see a spoof limit order set at $4,400 of 10,000 BTC and everyone's dick shrinks into their stomach as they hurry to Tether as BTC drops back down to $3,500 before whale #2 shit fucks your emotions with a $1,500 green dildo in a 15 minute span sees the "sell wall" disappear which starts the next FOMO run on up to $6,200 a few weeks later while TAers say "We broke out on great volume" then other TAers agree and the self-fulling prophecy starts another run only to get hit with more whale fuckers.
You can't predict this shit. Give it up.
Market goes up, market goes down, can't explain that.
With the LTC halving in August, the BTC halving in May 2020, I think we are about to get into the 2017 euphoria again though. We are getting closeTM to the point you could just thrown money at any coin and get 10x your investment.
What does "close" mean? I have no idea. Eff anyone that thinks they know. Someone could predict it is this week, next month, or after this current fakeout bull run, or in December, or next Spring, and someone will be right.
The only advice I have is to do your best to not get emotional about your money or crypto. It's going to do the exact opposite of what you think it will. Even when you try to do the opposite, crypto will shit-fuck you in your sleep.
If you believe that the sentiment is changing, and let's be real, we are in speculation phase and this is all based on hopium and belief, then DCA at certain intervals.
This isn't some cult. It's all based on sentiment. If you think people are starting to get interested, then that is a sign speculation is about to be in our favor.
If you are putting money in that needs to be rent money, do yourself a favor and just walk into a casino and put it all on red. If you win, then put your winnings in crypto. If you lose, I saved you the anguish of checking your portfolio every hour only wish you would have done the opposite of what you did.
You're welcome...
Or, do the opposite. Check the market every hour for the next 12 months only to look back and realize that you kept buying on the way up, got scared and sold on the way down, and then FUD yourself in your sleep because of your stop loss sells were triggered while whales were fishing for fear.
So, there are all of my shit thoughts. What are yours?
What are your strategies?
There are plenty of people that have been in longer than me, what are your strategies?
Are we heading for a the next bull run? Is the bottom in? Do we still have a massive, short-lived capitulation event coming?
Let's chat.
TL;DR: You can't predict this shit, just DCA, live your life, get a buy strategy, choose a sell point, make this shit as simple as possible. If you try to complicate things by predicting the next run, the next drop, the next consolidation, then you're probably going to be wrong like 99% of people. And don't be that guy that ends up $250,000 in your account in the next bull run only to see it drop down $67,000 literally a week later.

When this occurs, we expect individuals and groups to try and attack the Lynx network. The development team will be watching closely and will issue updates and news via Twitter (@GetLynxio) and the Lynx Discord forum.
Transparency note: As with all crypto projects, Lynx is experimental and is not a sound financial investment. If you are a holder of Lynx and cannot tolerate the (unlikely) risk of complete loss of your Lynx investment, you may wish to transfer your holdings to another coin for the time being.
The information below explains how you should prepare, the risks associated with new business rules, and how you can get involved to help secure the network before HPoW takes effect.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR HPoW
To keep your Lynx safe and secure, we recommend moving your coins into a Coinomi wallet or Lynx v16.3.2 Desktop wallet around January 16, 2019.
Important safety tips:
  1. Lynx users should NOT copy wallet.dat files between wallet versions. We discourage reusing the same Lynx address when updating wallets. Instead, coins should be sent to a NEW address created by the new wallet like oursor Coinomi.
  2. If you use the Desktop Wallet, be sure to enable encryption. Write down your password – you control your coins, so keep good documentation of your password in a safe place.
  3. If you use Coinomi, be sure to safely store your master recovery phrase. Again, you are responsible for your coins, so distribute a partial list of your recovery phrase words to friends and family. No one person, other than you, should have all words in your recovery phrase.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE HPoW TRANSITION
Slow/Stuck Network
A risk with HPoW, especially during Phase One, is a stuck network. What does that mean? When the Lynx network is stuck, it means blocks are not being found fast enough by miners and the time between blocks is MUCH longer than the average 30 seconds we expect. During Phase One of HPoW’s implementation, we expect a very dynamic time between blocks. Some blocks will be mined seconds apart and others might be hours. If a transaction is waiting for a block, this would appear to be stuck. The solution? Patience. Just wait! Our long time friends at multipool.us will continue to support the Lynx network so extremely long times between blocks should be rare, but it could happen.*
51% Attack
If you are sending coins to/from an exchange (or sending to/from an individual) and a 51% attack occurs on the Lynx network, those coins MIGHT be at risk. To be clear, the only Lynx at risk of theft or manipulation are coins being sent or received during or after the transaction period during a 51% attack. That’s why we recommend storing your coins and not trading anything until a week or so after HPoW takes effect. Again, follow us on Twitter (@GetLynxio) and the Lynx Discord forum for the latest, official, status and safety updates.
R-value Address Reuse Attack
This attack was used recently against a few Lynx users who had been ‘moving’ their legacy wallet.dat file between Kittehcoin and Lynx wallet versions. Again, to minimize the risk of theft, send your coins to a Coinomi wallet or newly installed Lynx desktop wallet v16.3.2. And, do NOT copy wallet.dat files between wallet versions. Instead, coins should be sent to a NEW address.
Unknown Attack Vectors
By Jan 16th, 2019, a newly created Testnet will be live and anyone can probe it as they like. Feel free to ask (in the #development channel via Discord) for free Testnet Lynx Coins if you want to experiment in a safe, testing-only version of Lynx. We encourage you to use the Testnet space to try a 51% Attack (or simulate other kinds of attack). Every time an attack on the project occurs, we learn from and improve from it. Over time these attacks make Lynx better. We welcome new ways to improve the project.
HOW YOU CAN HELP SECURE THE LYNX NETWORK AGAINST AN ATTACK
  1. Leave your desktop wallet open and running during the day. We recommend leaving at least 10,000 Lynx coins in a single address in your desktop wallet. This will help HPoW. The rest of your coins can be safely stored away elsewhere. Having more coins in each desktop wallet address does not help you win more blocks. You can create as many addresses in your desktop wallet as you like with that amount of Lynx in each. These unique addresses help HPoW work. It’s kind of like Proof of Stake, but it’s still Proof of Work mining.
  2. If you don’t want to store any coins in your desktop wallet for the highest level of safety, create a lynx.conf file with these contents. We would recommend you add your own Coinomi addresses to your lynx.conf file to possibly win some miner rewards.
  3. If you have a Raspberry Pi, get the latest ISOand flash your SD card. It is completely automated so no further configuration is needed. It will mine for you. Again, you can update the lynx.conf file on your Pi if you like with your own Coinomi addresses so you can get some of those miner rewards.
  4. Create a USD $5/m 1GB VPS with a vendor like Linode.com. Use the 1 line install scriptas root on your Linode and it will completely build itself. When it’s done it will mine too. You can customize the lynx.conf script with addresses from your personal Coinomi stash too!
*NOTE:
Currently, Lynx discourages mining for profit and running a mining pool for Lynx isn’t profitable. (See the Lynx white paper for more details.) And, the implementation of Hybrid Proof of Work makes it even more difficult to win predictable blocks. Also, miniature USB mining rigs are poorly designed for the HPoW concept. While they might win one block from time to time, the design of HPoW restricts them from generating enough blocks to legitimize the expense of hardware or electricity.

How to do with vigorously shocked markets? Just do as follows!

How to do with vigorously shocked markets? Just do as follows!
According to BTC whitepaper, third block reward halving time will happen on May 10th, 2020.Most BTC holders think as the time approaches, the BTC price will get higher and higher.Recently, the BTC price came to $10k, which ignited the enthusiasm of the BTC market.

How about the idea of famous BTC investors?

PlanB:Something has changed this week: I have been approached every day by friends and colleagues to buy bitcoin, every single day!

Pomp:I still think that Bitcoin will hit $100,000 by end of December 2021.
https://preview.redd.it/xeejaniituh41.png?width=602&format=png&auto=webp&s=f65180dd87f6b17953df3a3d6fb4f059f818cddf

How about the trend of BTC price when block reward halving happened?

After block reward halving happened, the BTC price came to the highest price on a previous bull market. For example, the BTC price came to $17925.10 on Dec. 16, 2017. This time, third block reward halving attracts many people among the market. In the past month, BTC has been mentioned more and more on the internet. The Google search index for "Bitcoin" has been increasing continuously, and the Google search volume for "Bitcoin halving" has doubled.

BTC mining income is still higher than BTC buying income

As we concluded in our precious report that the price fluctuation and net income fluctuation rate of Antiminer T17 have declined, showing a bottoming signal. How about now? How about the income rate?Remarks:Daily income /T = revenue, electricity cost = expenditure, daily income /T - electricity cost = net profit, net income of mining rigs = mining rigs price + net profit.

So, BTC mining income is still higher than BTC buying income.

Sticky: For newbs or those in the dark, read this to get redpilled about why Bitcoin SV (BSV) is the real Bitcoin. Follow the links and sources to become informed and enlightened.

Someone recently asked me in PM to redpill them about why BSV is the real Bitcoin, and here is my response below. We could make this an informative sticky post, so if I forgot anything or people want to contribute please comment below and we can edit it as we go (1/13/19):
Ok, well Core obviously can't be bitcoin, it has segwit which has a whole host of problems, along with a strangled 1MB cap on block size. The fees got outrageous and they basically destroyed adoption and set back Bitcoin adoption by years.
So we forked off with BCH to preserve the original vision of Satoshi. I was on the front lines as one of the first pushing the idea of a split to preserve the ledger if segwit ever activated. Segwit is horrible because it breaks the chain of signatures and the definition of Bitcoin in the whitepaper as explained here by Peter Rizun. It has a lot of other problems too introduced by the kludge code as well, like the "anyonecanspend" vulnerability, as well as enhancing other problems that already exist with P2SH. It causes problems with validationless mining. It is a nightmare. Some are even saying there is a critical bug in segwit that will be revealed this year, including a mysterious warning post by Satoshi on twitter. Core wanted to shove segwit down our throats, and said we could never have big blocks, so we went off on BCH to follow Satoshi's vision.
Unfortunately during the split, the ABC group somehow thought they are the boss dictators of a decentralized project. We endured things for a while, and were able to stave off some of their radical change proposals. But now they have crossed the line with radical changes that break and damage the system. The whole split with ABC and BSV happened when Amaury said he would take actions to irritate many, by prioritizing "pre-consensus". Basically they are moving away from POW and Satoshi's design of Nakamoto Consensus to a new design called "avalanche", which is more similar to POS. They even added centralized checkpoints and 10 block reorg protection during the split, meaning the ABC chain is completely centralized. Deadalnix the lead ABC dev is even planning to add segwit malfix to BCH, when the entire split with Core happened because of segwit. The guy even refers to himself as a shitlord dictator. They said that they own the ticker and they don't even care about miner vote, or the white paper, or Nakamoto Consensus.
BSV had 80-90% of the hash power leading to the fork. Here is a post showing they had over 85% hash rate supporting SV. Then Roger and others rented hash to 51% attack the chain. Here is Roger on Twitter bragging that he is moving his pool hash for the 51% attack. They are using censorship and propaganda as well. For example I was a huge contributor to /btc starting Tipping Tuesday giving thousands of dollars worth of BCH to newbs and promoting their sub, and I was the #5 biggest tipper, and the most frequent tipper of all time according to bitcoin.com, and I was banned because I support SV, even when they complain about /bitcoin censorship and claim they allow free speech, they are liars and hypocrites. There are even lawsuits against them over the 51% attack.
ABC is not Bitcoin at all, they also refuse to raise the blocksize limit the same as Core and they are stuck at 32MB. They said 22MB was the maximum possible, but now BSV proved them wrong by mining a 103MB block, a world record. Update now we do 128MB blocks routinely. If we want Bitcoin to be sound money for the world we have to build giant capacity now. We need to solve the "Fidelity Problem" as described by Jeff Garzik. The block reward is running out and we must sustain ourselves on fees over time or the system fails. We need to show the world the huge capacity we can handle, so giant companies and institutions, and central banks will build their tokens on our blockchain. This is how we spread Bitcoin to the world. Fiat tokens issued by central banks on BSV is one of the stepping stones to worldwide adoption.
The ABC community wants to change to a POS model, or have a dictator, or have social consensus to decide governance. Some of them even say it is ok to increase the 21 million cap using social consensus. I don't believe such governance mechanisms will work, they lead to oligarchy and corruption, and tyranny. We couldn't have such governance or democratic voting decide the properties of gold, and the properties of Bitcoin should not be changed easily either. If we want sound money we need a stable protocol and not a protocol that forks and changes things every 6 months like ABC does. They also have other problems in their roadmap like merklix trees, which introduce more vulnerabilities over time. Nobody wants to build on a chain that is constantly changing, and nobody can trust it as sound money. Only POW governance will work, as nChain's paper explains other systems degrade to oligarchy. This was Satoshi's design.
Bitcoin is a very clever economic and game theoretic incentive system, and these young naive developers are trying to mess with a system that they do not understand. Most people do not understand these things, so the market is having trouble discerning the true Bitcoin. Over time as we scale, it will be clear. We are lucky that we have been able to preserve Satoshi's vision and design with BitcoinSV, it is the one and true Bitcoin. At the end of the day they can steal the ticker and use propaganda and dirty tricks, but it is not so easy to stop the Honey Badger in the long term. We will go on to spread sound money and economic freedom worldwide. Come join us /bitcoincashSV
