Bitcoin, and other tulips


#826

Wow… what a terribly inaccurate article. But that doesn’t surprise me because most articles about crypto are incorrext. But hey, whatever sells


#827

The book sells for $6. At least I’ll be getting something out of it, ie paper.


#828

Can’t snort coke with bitcoin


#829

I’m blockchained to the mirror man!


#830

Can’t play the pinnies or Space Invaders with it either.


#831

Hmmm.
I needed something on my wishlist.
Pinnies, you say…


#832

Still waiting for more info on this?


#833

You stare the said tittehcoin and concentrate for a good 2 mins, then the lose change is dispensed.


#834

I love that the real reason is Tittiecoin is going to fund the creation of TittieIsland. Has to be the biggest pisstake of all time.

#835

as stated above, i believe it’s a pisstake, but it was too good an oppotunity not to post about a coin that is literally named tittie haha.
yes yes small things …

he she it whatever says everyone can’t all sell out at 19 grand per bitcoin, and that you need new people to the scheme.

is that not the same for normal investing, and also the banking system in general ?
wasn’t it something like if 20% of people cashed out their savings in banks, they’d go bust, cos they simply don’t hold 100% of what they put out ?

and the investing part again is the exact same reason why the normal stock market would crash in the same circumstances, if everyone tried to take their money out at the top price.

I know you’re prolly posting it to get a rise in here, but still it’s the exact same premise the “real” world markets and banking system would crash.


#837

Perhaps we can pool our coins together and blitz can buy this island?


#838

would have been a good time to buy in when you posted this :stuck_out_tongue:


#839

Expecting markets to fall again this week before hopefully bottomin out :pray:


#840

eth looks to be on a down again, if it gets to below 1000, might stock up again.


#841

My best guess is it likely will fall below 1000. Jan 25th will be interesting for the mkt due to btc futures


#842

You keep saying that it’s the same but it’s not really. I mean there are rules and regulations with potential government intervention on one side and nothing on the other. They are the same only to the extent of how they trade, not the environment they trade in.

Feel free to have a look at APRA.gov.au to see how much regulation there is in the Australian finance industry.

Yes they have similarities to the stock market but to say they are the same is a bit extreme.

I have no opinion on what to invest in but do push the diversify or don’t put all your eggs in one basket idea.


#843

As a side note I’m happily mining ethereum.

Nothing to lose as I’ve made no investment.


#844

I brought some in the dip :blush:


#845

Wasn’t a ■■■■ stir. Banks have some underlying assests.
