Bitcoin is the new gold, true supply and demand will never be as stable as fiat. Fiat cuckrencies which stay stable due manipulation will serve us as a way to peg Bitcoin to them in order to do commerce. Merchants will just list the equivalent in BTC, so the price can go to 1 million per BTC, so fucking what.

In other words, win/win.

If fiat is bad because you lose purchasing power due to there being an unlimited supply, why is bitcoin good because you gain purchasing power because there is a limited supply? (limited in the total amount, not limited in the new amounts mined)

I know that the easy way out is to tell me that it's a good thing that the item you are holding is becoming worth more because you are getting rich doing nothing. But it'd be like gold, if gold had a practically finite supply, rather than the steady infusion of more of it year after year.

It's my understanding bitcoin will eventually stop being created?

IE, why is movement in value one way bad, but good in the other? In both cases the value is changing and introducing risk/instability.

Legitimate answers would be appreciated rather than some shitcoin bagholder trying to troll me.

Bitcoin is smart money, there are top tier engineers making it better and adding features, you can do things with it than you can't do with conventional money. It evolves. It's not something static, like gold. It's a better gold.
You can manage your own finances outside of any control. This will be crucial once physical cash is removed. Most people are surviving due working outside of tax control. Guess what the only alternative will be by then.
Then there's uses such as money outside contries with retarded capital controls.
Then there's the new paradigm shift of the concept of smart contracts.
And most importantly, 4 billion people that don't have the priviledge of having access to banks, suddendly can be their own bank with some Nokia SMS phone.
Bitcoin is a network that goes beyond money, backed by the biggest hashing power on earth.

That's its intrinsic value if you will.

but muh low volume use cases

Here is where you might need to change your perspective.

Right now Bitcoin is a speculation not a necessity for daily life.

TCP/IP was once just a speculative technology with no driving purpose in daily life. But I think we can agree that it is quite the opposite today?

The difference between Bitcoin and TCP/IP is that you can buy and posses shares in Bitcoin whereas you couldnt buy and posses shares in TCP/IP

If you are willing to endure learning how to get some, you can own some today.

Count your blessings that you have the advantage of even knowing it exists.

Illusionz

I get all that. But if fiat is inherently bad because the value keeps dropping because the supply is infinite, why is it ok for bitcoin value to go the other way with a finite supply?

I'm not asking for a Vitalik Buterin lecture about blockchains and smart contracts.

Can you explain this chart to me? I'm definitely interested in cryptocurrencies, but I don't want to dive in wiithout knowing shit. Like, what does this even imply? I see it rising... but how much is that worth USD?

I really just don't know.

Harmless_Venom

Not sure I'm following you, but movement up is good if your already holding, movement down might also be good if you're NOT currently holding, so long as you have faith that the commodity hasn't yet reached it's peak demand or otherwise been made valueless by external factors.

If you're not holding and the value is going up, well obviously that's basically bad.

Seems to me that's what separates coiners and nocoiners. Nocoiners don't believe in the future of crypto, not even in the short term. I don't see any fundamental reasons BTC is about to lose its value or purpose, (see ) the only real threats are other crypto's like Eth. But with China behind btc and a far more established infrastructure for utilising the currency, I think by the time Eth could be considered a serious competitor we will have seen the writing on the wall. And there's no reason they can't co-exist in their own niches.

I don't own any Eth, but it has my attention; particularly if some sort of BTC related disaster surfaces.

Bitcoin is smart money
not smarter than toilet paper
there are top tier engineers making it better and adding features
i have yet to seen any signs of this user are you taking drugs?
It evolves
it could evolve it doesn't tho it's locked in a political standoff among devs and prophets
Then there's the new paradigm shift of the concept of smart contracts.
no such shift yet it's an idea with zero practical application so far.

let's face it bitcoin is a pilot game pretty much. some people will be insanely rich some will hold bags.

Bitcoin is real supply and demand, that's why it's not going to be as stable as fiat.

Fiat supply being infinite has consequences:

usdebtclock.org/

I don't see where you are going at with this anyway. I don't care about fiat being good or bad, I want to increase my purchasing power, and Bitcoin is the ultimate place to be, the problem is you are not seeing the big picture.

You need to stop wanting short answers for complex questions. Watch this to put things into perspective:

ETH is not suited to act as robust money for a number of reasons. It's turin complete design is simply a mistake for this duty, which is why a TC sidechain isolated from the main chain is a better idea (see Rootstock).

I think ETH will pump for a while, but I have serious doubts that it will have a place to exist once sidechains kick in.

I would hold some tho... I was considering dropping 1 or 2 BTC on it to short it, but as soon as I see a good BTC profit im selling.
NEVER let go your BTC in alts.

Sweet nocoiner tears.

It's pretty simple.
You buy 1 BTC now at 566

3 days later is at 600

600 - 566 = 34 dollar increase, so your investment went up 6%

What's not to get?

I have a question
I'm trying to sweep my paper wallet for the first time with this electrum wallet

but I think it generates its fucking private keys with a dictionary pass phrase everytime you create a new wallet with ti

the research I did about buttcoin before told me this was dangerous
isn't there a risk anything I sweep into it will be taken right out with people sweeping any key they can generate with dictionary passwords??

Snarelure
Snarelure

...
no idea what you are on about, but you can always change the encryption password or passphrase of your wallet (which encrypts all your private keys)

now if you import the private key on a paper wallet you should immediately send them to a new address of your own and never reuse the private key it held. that way the paper becomes worthless and useless.

when you create a wallet, if gives you a long random sentence to save to "back up your wallet"

so then didn't they make private key/SHA hash from a risky dictionary password?

Your wallet can be entirely recovered from its seed. For this, select the “restore wallet” option in the startup.

is this what you are talking about? i imagine yes the client makes a hash from the sentence it generated randomly and this hash will be the seed for the hash-pseudo random generator to generate everything.

so best keep it very well hidden like in a hard box.

i don't think you have to consider this method with words any more risky than you know writing down the salt itself they probably calculated it to have the same entropy as the seed itself (hopefully)
The seed created by Electrum has 128 bits of entropy. This means that it provides the same level of security as a Bitcoin private key (of length 256 bits). Indeed, an elliptic curve key of length n provides n/2 bits of security.

yeah well, most apps will let you move around the mouse to generate your seed and you have to backup the files to keep your private keys safe.

dunno if this is weak or bad but i don't much like it.

eGremlin
eGremlin

yeah its just I read hackers try tons of addresses a day made from dictionary hashes to find brain wallets people made from dictionary passphrases put through the SHA256 hash to get their private key, so I'm skeptical of sending my money to such a wallet

I mean I get the passphrase is kinda long and may have good entropy but it might be undermined and limited if they're made only with dictionary phrases

is there a safer wallet I can use? electrum has some 2 factor authorization but pic related idk about relying on some 3rd party 'le coin site that can go down any second' I know nothing about

what you described is like fishing for a single electron with the right spin in the clouds of jupiter.

the enthrophy is the mathematical answer you are looking for most salts only have 1 and 0 but their variations on a 256 bit string are insanely hard to guess. if you use other numbers like decimals and have a sufficiently long string like 78 decimals or something you would get the same difficulty, a dictionary contains words that are basically numbers or digits in this example by the millions yo you only need a couple to get the same difficulty.

Ignoramus

isn't there a risk anything I sweep into it will be taken right out with people sweeping any key they can generate with dictionary passwords??

take how many words there are in the dictionary and raise it to the power of how long your seed is

so seed is length 12

let's say there are 200k words in the dict

200k ^ 12 = 4.096 e63 possible seeds

TAKE A STAT CLASS

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

well i just saw i mixed up some stuff, so if you have a binary string with good enthropy you can present it in any base or number system and it still has good enthropy. good enthropy suggests the binary string is hard to guess really random looking. but the truth is true random numbers can have very low enthropy.

Peak old said Bitcoin was too high at $10 (including myself). They/I did not see the implications of such a network until I did my homework. As the world becomes more and more digital, a secure form of transacting without third party is a huge advantage. Once a large percentage of the world uses Bitcoin the price will increase due to supply and demand. Could take it to the moon

You deserve what's comming to you. You are the morons that then complain how you lost your money and how BTC is not secure. Just lol. BTC is natural selection, only the smart people will become rich in 10 years, those that managed to keep at least 20+ BTC to be in the 1 million club, will become rich. The fact that you will eventually lose those coins because you are an idiot, will make us get there faster since the supply shrinks everytime someone loses access to their coins.

Cope. RSK whitepaper is perfect. Bitcoin to the moon, ETH's all usefulness is to make even more BTC.

WebTool

not a bad plan if it was more i would suggest sell gradually as it climbs because it could crash before the halvening in theory, but not much you can lose with .25
it's not a bad strategy to say i will sell .05 at every $100 (6, 7, 8, 9, ...) and sell the rest if it tips down.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

If it tips below (or around) $700CDN I'll sell immediately and still make money, but just not moon money.

The profit from that will then come from buying when it drops back down to ~$200 again, which should be sometime near the end of summer/fall.

If a bitcoin circuit becomes poor their bitcoins become worth little to nothing. If a gold circuit becomes poor they still have gold. Holding bitcoins in case of a monetary collapse is extremely foolish.
Bitcoins is good for 1 thing, swindling suckers by trading. As for any competitor, it's near worthless if the supply is valued at over $1 billion.

Doesn't anyone realize it's a fad? It's not useful to nearly everyone. Those most bitcoin will ever be is a cult classic.
