Three roommates were hanging out in the living room one day, when one of them opened an email on their phone. "Hey guys, the Guinness book of world records is coming to town! We should go get into it somehow!" The shortest roommate, who was only 3 feet tall says "I'm going to go see if I'm the shortest person in the world!" The fat roommate, who was 900 pounds and could barely walk says "Maybe I'm the biggest person in the world!" They looked over at the third roommate, who seemed like a normal , average looking guy... "What are you going to use to enter the contest?" The third roommate says "I didn't want to admit this, but I have a micro-penis. I'm going to go get the record for smallest penis in the world". So the roommates head down to the competition. The first roommate comes out after being measured and said "I DID IT! I'm in the book!" The second roommate comes out and said "YAY! I'm the biggest! My name is going in the book!" The third roommate comes out and says "Who the fuck is Scam Bankman Fraud"
Were you looking for me to pat you on the back???? Is that why you posted this rather bragadocious post???? Oh, here we go. GOOD JOB LITTLE BUDDY!!!!!! YAY!!!!! There. Did I pet you properly? Did you get enough approval and approbation to satisfy yourself?
Oh, YAY! I'm glad you're not one of them. The world needs more truly intelligent and flexible thinkers. Here's a technique I use to use to sort people out. When I was in school, they taught that humans *walked* from Siberia across an "ice bridge" and through Alaska and came down into what we now call "North America". Sound familiar? Looks reasonable on a tiny map on the classroom wall. Then, later I learned some "oceanography". Very interesting. As part of that we learned about the Earth's tilt, and wind patterns and the Coriolis's Effect and how that sets up gigantic ocean currents. One of those powerful and swift currents flows up, past Korea, then curves and races down from Alaska, past Canada all the way to Mexico. Dude. People did not walk from "Russia" to Nebraska. No. They took boats, maybe by accident. They rode that swift and powerful current until they found a nice place to come ashore. Duh. Also, if you study the topography of Alaska - it is still extremely difficult to travel, even with today's modern equipment. Ice fields are also pretty fucked up places for people on foot, especially with sleds. But certain "intelligent" people can't agree with my idea that those early arrivals just took boats across the ocean -- mainly because that wasn't the "answer" on the 8th grade test they aced. They can memorize, but they can't think for themselves. Nor can they "flex" when a new idea (like Bitcoin) comes along to challenge what they think they already "know". So they bicker with me. Then I ask them if the first Hawaiians also walked across an ice bridge. "Oh, no. They took boats." It would be funny if it wasn't so sad. We should not expect people like that to accept/understand Bitcoin.
YE purchases permission to have his money there, they refused service like a business is allowed to do. YE is also allowed to build his own fortress to keep cash in and buy guns and hire people to protect it, like it's a bank.... and he can also refuse service. YAY AMERICA!
So this is called money laundering! YAY! Shit, my NFT didn't sell... if I dont sell, there's no capital gains... BUUUUUUUUUT if I get "HACKED", I get to claim losses! Lets slap an arbitray number on some NFT's and get a nice tax break.
Dunno, promised myself I wouldnt buy while on vacation to keep emergency cash. Nothing bad happened ofcourse, so I just bought some today after my return. Coulda gotten better prices last week, but had to keep promise to myself... and I did! YAY!
When interest rates go up, banks go up veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery sllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooly in their interest rates they pay out. But the interest rates they CHARGE go up quickly. ​ 2025 : YAY! You finally break 2% on your savings account, but the prime rate is 9%.
"Crypto is the Wild West!! YAY!" "Crypto is the Wild West!! BOOO!!!" I'm all for regulations on this space, just copy/paste the same regulations all public markets have to follow, 99% of the rules are consumer protections so I'm fine with it
My cryptolife: DCA on Tuesday - Ok Up trend Friday - Yay! Up trend lasting the weekend - YAY! Monday at +20% portfolio thinking I bought the dip - YAY! *NASDAQ & Bogdanoff appears* -My portfolio starts to bleed out- *Passed everything to USDC to not lost too much* -gass fees of 1.5% AAAAND ended up with +5% of this pump. Fuck me.
>For individuals, a fixed money supply without monetary inflation is just what is needed. Yeah.....Tell that to El Salvador where their currency has inflated nearly 100% in the last 7 months.....🙄 I'm sorry but you are saying a thing that people say who have either absolutely no fucking idea how basic finance works(let alone society scale monetary policy) or have been totally led astray by bullshit Libertarian propaganda. But on that topic- Deflation in a currency is just as bad as inflation, the bitcoin holders(and disingenuous millionaire/billionaire Libertarians) only love deflation because they already hold the asset, everyone who doesn't already hold it pays a dear cost, especially anyone that holds any debt, especially long term debt, like a mortgage....for those people long term deflation is *fucking CATASTROPHIC* Here is a quick thought exercise for you to really drive my point home Let's say you signed a 30y fixed rate mortage when Bitcoin was $1, your mortgage is 1300 Bitcoin a month. During the year Bitcoin has risen in value (deflated) 500% and 1BTC=$5, YAY! right? Sure.....if you are treating it as an investment, but as a debt holder your mortage is still 1300BTC a month, what was once $1300 a month is now $6500 a month in relative terms....and God forbid you are a *wage earner* and are getting paid in BTC, if you were making a 1000BTC a week and the value deflated by 500% your wage will *very quickly* be reduced to 200BTC a week See the problem now? You don't want a lot of inflation...you dont want *a little bit* of deflation....you want *Stability* in a currency and you want the currency to have the ability to be managed and guided somewhat from a 50,000 foot level....Bitcoin, or *any* decentralized crypto, but *especially* the ones designed to be deflationary by being based on a fixed supply, will never be viable currencies except on the margins
Really, really looking forward to your response when Russia get most or all of what they wanted : \- Eastern section of Ukraine becomes independent. \- Ukraine pledges to remain neutral and not allow foreign bases on their soil. \- Crimea being recognized as part of Russia (this one might not happen). If that's what losing looks like, they that sounds great. The far right extremists - like the Azov battalion - have been decimated. This was also a major goal of the operation. Oh yeah, they're also getting a billion dollars a day or so in oil revenue. Oh yeah, Europe is readying emergency measures because of the gas supply crunch. Oh yeah, food and fertilizer shortages are going to hit Western consumers in the wallet in addition to the fuel costs. But a bunch of people who have never seen struggle have changed their avatars to a Ukraine flag so YAY! Though if you watch CNN and Fox, you wouldn't know this. As mentioned, only a 75 IQ dunce thought that Russia's goal was to overtake the whole country. The siege of Kiev did exactly what it was supposed to do - prevent reinforcements going to the East. This information was available at the beginning of the wat when if you had a news source who reported what Russia was saying. Believe it or not there are actually honest, actual independent journalists on the ground reporting - particularly in the East. It's laughable for all the Western news pundits telling us they know what Putin is thinking, though it's all speculation. I don't like the guy, but he's way smarter than the Western News services and light years smarter than the idiots who eat their pablum. TL / DR - Russia is going to get most if not all of what they want regardless of the Western media telling you how bad Russia is failing. The outcome could have easily been negotiated prior to the war had all parties continued with the Minsk agreement.
This sub is very "YAY Crypto!/BOO Fiat!" And thats as far as their thinking ever goes (for the most part) I was interacting with the OP of that post yesterday about the SWIFT system and how it would effect the Dollar and Crypto adoption etc.....0%....its gonna effect it 0% because all SWIFT is is a fancy private telephone service for Banks....SWIFT may actually transition to some kind of Blockchain tech for speed and security reasons but it will be 100% centralized and 100% private and 100% used between banks. Mad people have a completely unrealistic view of this stuff, the tech, the ramifications and are totally ignorant as to how any of real life actually works lol
YAY! Bitcoin just funded a .... extremist right protest, that wants to further fuel the COVID-pandemic by removing all Covid-measures and protesting a vaccine mandate, and voices their concerns by blocking infrastructure and annoying the shit out of people? Yo why is this upvoted again? Are we the baddies here?
All in red here, bro. And this can continue since we are facing a "hawkish" FED. Rates can soon be raised to fight inflation and revive the job market. Of course this will have a direct impact on investments. But, what this changes really? I'm a hodler by nature so it changes nothing for me! But I'm excited: I still going long for BTC-ETH. I'll keep filling up the bag with good altcoins and I'm VERY bullish for NFT this year! I trully believe that projects like AXS, ELEN, YAY and UNQ will soon be benefited by the huge increase in NFT's adoption. UNQ it's an NFT chain for Kusama and Polkadot and public round is coming next week. I've read some rumors that Meta was targeting ELEN's aquisition and AXS can't stop growing! One more thing: I think that Jerome Powell, FED's president, should join our community asap. He could learn a lot from us.
11. I like it. And it's true, although maybe not toxic. They're all like cute little labrador puppies running around happy no matter what's happening. Getting beat on over the head with a shoe? YAY! Attention! Meme coin crashes 70% in 4 minutes? YAY! A sale! 99% of all liquidity is drained from an exchange at the request of the owners of the exchange? YAY! Isn't that a record of some sort! YAY! PUPPIES!
1) You missed my point. (No matter, I made it.) 2) This is anecdotal evidence: *"I have not had a fraud experience with CDC yet, so that scenario does remain to be seen."* Remains to be seen *by you*\-which means untested *for you*, and wholly irrelevant to all other readers. I am thrilled you have gotten a goody. YAY! I hope that CRO CDC stuff works for everyone. YAY! I just weighed in that all may not be such the rainbow as posed-for all. EX: in the US those gains can be taxed up to \~38%.....whereas the 5-6% we can pull (up to 10% at Discover) flies right under the radar as it is fiat cash back, that is booked as an expense reduction, like a product on sale.
Talk to fam about crypto ? No spank you. I can see it now. Cousin puts 5000 $ into CRO. Its pumping, good times. Puts another 2 000$ . YAY free money. He is a genius. Then coin drops for what ever reason. Paskee you motherfucker. I lost money, A LOT OF money beceause of YOU. YOU told me of crypto, YOU showed me your gains. YOU stole my money and now you owe me. Yeah, no. There are select few I will discuss crypto or any other financial market / investment. But emphasis on selected few.
You have a good point, friend. I come from stock market world, man. My mindset is long-run only. I have stocks positions in US, Europe and South America. I've survived 2008, 2015 and 2020. I\`ve joined crypto in 2017. If no bear market happened, I would not have the positions I have today with +200% profits and returning me 30% dividends a year (mainly the largest brazilian utilities companies). Crypto is no different. I still bullish for NFTs, metaverse, P2E, scalable blockchain, BTC and ETH (of course). So I keep buying projects like BNB (Binance), BTC, ETH and off the radar like YAY and ELEN (Everlens). I am not used to do it, but I've decided to join a token event to buy UNQ (Unique) earlier, actually one of my favorite NFT mkt places. So, for those seeking the long run... bear markets can really help to empower your portfolio.
The kicker here is every bank if different YAY! Seriously they all have multiple fields referred to by whatever their coder decided to call them. Better yet some are internal only meaning sure you filled it out but it’s never sent to the receiver. You have to talk to each one specifically and work out what that externally sent field is called. Note, instruction, memo, and description I have seen as well so that should give you some idea how many are possibly out there. Actually wonder what people from around have all seen, I know there is a vast difference in crypto support levels.
MuesliSwap has 17 assets listed so far. In fairness, I can say that I recognize 9 of them (DANA, WMT, VYFI, ADAX, MIN, XRAY, KICK, YAY, HOSKY). 10 if you count MILK, which is MuesliSwap's token. Not too shabby to start off with. Let's circle back to this conversation in another 90 days and see where we are by then.
Oh, YAY!! Good. What you need, it seems, is two copies of the private key (and public address). Write them on good paper with a pencil (ink might fade). Keep the copies in separate locations. Store them in ziploc baggies to protect from moisture and/or insects. Did that answer the original question? To spend it will require sweeping the private into a software/hardware wallet.
sure, that way the centralized node gets to see all my transactions , how much, with whom and how often.. they can also guess my overall net worth because of my tolerance for keeping channels open vs closing them out. ,.. and also they can choose to limit my access through their node based on whims... so the promise of a world with big banks only exists if i want to buy a house but not for everything practical... YAY? The freedom of bankless peer-to-peer finance just became Visa and PayPal's wet dream
