If crypto is such an amazing thing, then you "coiners" should set an example instead of calling everyone else trolls.

And you no coiners think you are so great and wise, then try not to be insulting of others and set an example as to why we should listen to you.

It works both ways. So I suggest you get off your throne, back to earth please.

I think the mods should step in and help get civility back in order here.

So it works both ways, yet I'm the one who is on a throne?

Please stop. I never insulted anyone in this thread.

But yes, we really need some mods in here.

but you were quick to go after Trog when he is responding in kind to how others talked to himself, myself and others. And no, you cant ask someone to stop if you started it by going after someone when he was simply responding to others in kind. Yes, he shouldn't be going down to their level. But one cannot blame him either.

Maybe, we should let the mods get involved, no?

Hello, Barbara?

Did someone call?

Not my sub-forum so I can't LQ the crap above. However, I can give points and reply-ban. So please, stop being antagonistic. If you don't like mining as a thing, I'd advise folks to make a constructive post about why that is so. If you do like mining and get irritated by the haters, try seeing their side too.

Frankly, the thread title isn't valid anymore anyway. Don't know why folk are even posting here.

crypto really does have a big divide.. gamers hate miners and blame them for the high price of graphics cards plus crypto in general has some pretty powerfully enemies..

we all have some kind of bias.. i have skin in the crypto game and its bound to affect my thinking.. i do declare this fact though..

i think it helps if general readers know this and that often what poster are saying is part of a not so hidden agenda..

trog

ps.. people post in this thread because it can be informative and it can also be interesting.. the thread title is valid enough.. it goes back to when crypto started to be interesting again..

I'd be happy to see this thread closed altogether. I think we all know miners' and gamers' reasons for liking and disliking crypto, respectively. The only reason that I can think of to keep this thread open is to talk about some random news that pops up.

I'd also like to apologize to everyone for coming off as defensive. I was just trying to look out for a fellow forum member. I now realize that I handled the situation wrongly, and should've just contacted a mod without saying anything.

in general this thread is a crypto positive thread.. i am pretty sure anyone in the crypto negative camp would love to see it closed.. :)

i am thinking about starting another one called "the bitcoin and crypto thread".. :)

if this one is closed i will do so.. :)

he he.. i would call it self confidence and the fact i aint wrong that often..
And the farmer dragged off yet another load...

continuous trolling also needs calling for what it is..
Says that user constantly trolling everyone's comments...ah wait, that's just conversing normally in normal human conversation.

News flash for you, when someone makes a statement that is in opposition to something you have said, it is NOT trolling you. It's called conversation and communication. If your mental constitution is not strong enough to tolerate normal human conversation, maybe the internet is not the place for you.

Back on topic: Cryptocoin plunge levels seem to have slowed in the last week but are still in a general decline trend. I wonder what is taking place behind the scenes...

i am pretty sure anyone in the crypto negative camp would love to see it closed.. :)
Not really. If these discussions didn't happen here they would happen in another thread.... Actually, perhaps that's a good idea? Get this discussion behind a login requirement and off the front page?

Mods, opinions? I'd be happy to start a new general cryptocoin discussion thread. Seems like we need one anyway..

bitcoin is now at 37K... it seem to have settled there and is likely to go sideways for a while..

eth on the other hand hasnt recovered quite so well.. eth has been out performing bitcoin for the last few months.. this trend seems to have reversed.. what this means i havnt a clue but it must mean something..

Sorry, that's not what's happening, go look at the trends. 30day, 3 month and 1 year show a different situation.


Actually, its doing almost the same thing.

i am looking a bit shorter term than you lex.. we can easily form different opinions..

bitcoin is showing slightly up on a 24 hour scale.. eth on the other hand is in the red by 3.6%..

the only thing that matters for me is whats happened since the last low.. i see the last low as a failed attempt at driving bitcoin down to 25K or so..

but eth has definitely not recovered as well as bitcoin.. this is the opposite to what has been happening.. eth has always gained a little on bitcoin.. this recovery time it hasnt..

what happens next is still a bit of an unknown its too early to say....

trog

ps.. its worth noting i aint seeing what i want to see.. as a miner i want to see eth go up more.. i would like to see eth rocket and bitcoin stay where it is for a while.. that way my nicehash mining buys me more bitcoin..

I love how people try to predict what will happen to bitcoin value when all it takes is Elon waking up on the other side of the bed that morning and to tweet about it while having his coffee. If you think something that volatile has a future in economics you are sorely mistaken.

elon and his tweets dosnt matter that much and as time passes he will matter even less..

I have taken the liberty of creating a new general discussion thread to move discussions here to as we have gotten a bit off topic here.


That is a general discussion about cryptocoin and all topics about that subject are welcome.

His tweets do not matter that much? I guess wiping a third of crypto value in a single tweet is not such a big deal when crypto is already so volatile. And what exactly will change when all bitcoins have been mined? they will become less volatile for some reason? I doubt it.
The only reason crypto has any value to people is because you can trade it for Fiat.

wiping a third of crypto value

To be fair to Elon there as a lot of FUD going on at that particular time yeah.

The US was gona TAX it hard.

China hitting on more heavy restrictions.

And I dare say it was time for it to drop. It cant go up that rapid without repercussions. There were tell tales in the charts.

That's why I created the other thread. Users have started migrating over there. But ultimately it's your call.

For those who may have missed it, we have a new General Cryptocoin Discussion thread that off-topic discussion should be moved too.

Sounds like the stock market to me.

Maybe. But we need a single price discussion thread somewhere.
