See the comments. It's ridiculous the lengths banks are going to in order to suppress crypto.

That was a very long time ago. It is mainstream now. People are cashing out huge amounts every day. if you're in Switzerland or something you have no problem at all

>>278785
There is some truth to this but it is largely exaggerated. It depends on the country. If you're not doing anything illegal then it doesnt matter in the end. I don't think you realise how many plebs are now trading dogcoins. You can even buy crypto directly inside Paypal now. Things are changing fast

It's a matter of picking your ranges. If you are looking to buy and sell with more frequency than year-long cycles, you can't enter into positions without setting yourself specific strike prices. If, for example you said, "No matter the conditions, I will buy [whatever crypto] when Bitcoin is at $40,000 and sell when Bitcoin is at $60,000 you would have enjoyed one cycle's worth of profit. If you aren't sure how to pick a range then you are simply gambling without reason. This will not do, wizzie!

Moreover, the point of playing with money you can afford to lose is the fundamental backbone to investing. If you buy in at $40,000 and the price drops for 3 months down to $20,000 you have to be prepared for this. While you may have bought in too high, you wait however long it is until you hit that strike price. Maybe conditions in this (false) market change such that you lower your strike price to $50,000. Or maybe you just want out asap to free up funds for something else. Whatever you do, do NOT sell what you bought for less money than you bought it! If you are unsure of a position then don't put in the whole amount. If the price goes down you can buy in at a second price much lower and now your break even point is even lower than it was before. e.g.

>$100 bux invested at $40,000 price point

Price tanks to $20,000
>$100 bux invested at $20,000
Price rises to $30,000
You just reaped the rewards of an extreme volatility curve, as is so commonly seen in the crypto farce. A bad choice and a second investment earned you $25.

This is similar to Dollar Cost Averaging, but instead of unconscious, fixed time-based investments you actually have some decision making to do.

And one caveat, you CAN lose money in this seemingly guaranteed system, because who knows if the price ever will go up to n again? That's the decision you can't avoid making.

 No.279491

>>279489
I'm also obliged to add that I warn anyone and everyone against how alluring this may seem at times - to make money with long positions in a losing market. It is MUCH safer than short positions obviously, but it is incredibly easy to fall into the trap of doubling down to 'force out a profit'. This is how people lose serious mouney, because they just cannot control themselves. If you feel the urge to do this then you are playing with too much money to start out with. Scale it down and enjoy it.

Secondly, crypto has a number of paths to death. Oversaturation from endlessly newer tokens being created (think doge -> shiba -> etc. etc. ad infinitum), governments mass banning it all, exchanges shutting down or getting hacked. The amount of risk to you losing it all isn't just based on (((natural))) price movements. For this reason, you should have decided on some method of reaping your profits periodically and getting it into something sound and secure, or spend it. When you find your bank balance growing for seemingly no reason, it's very rewarding… if a little soulless and empty. And this never happens if you don't realise those profits by withdrawing - by getting out, getting safe. And, of course, don't do this without reporting your gains to the relative tax authority. We can't have any wizzie getting in trouble.

"Banning" it is irrelevant because you can't ban a decentralized network which exists on millions of computers across the world.

They can ban local crypto *exchanges* from trading those currencies into yuans.
Banning the currency itself is impossible. No matter if you are Emperor of Earth himself.

 No.279830

>>279829
When people talk about banning something, they aren't suggesting no people will ever use it. They're saying only criminals will, thus crypto will lose a huge percentage of its users, effectively wiping out most tokens.

>>279858
Like everything that human society values, yes beany babies obey the same economic rules. However there is nothing else that has ever been created that has strict mathematical scarcity. If demand goes up, then people can make more beany babies, mine more gold, print more paper money, etc. And it can still be transferred to other people over the internet. It is obviously an interesting new object; the price oscillates so much because it is such a strange new thing that doesnt fit into any category, and it is uncertain how it will fit into society

Bitcoin at $80k each? Time to cash out.

 No.280014

>>279861
Right now it's basically operating under scam logic and they have no underlying utility or value compared to anything else.
They are just a speculation/gambling/scam vehicle to 95% of the current market. Nothing more and nothing less.
If there was a government crack down that prevented normies from cashing out the price relative to the USD would crash so hard and so fast it would make history books.
The market for crypto for anything other then a speculation vehicle is microscopic in comparison. Crypo is just a means to a end. Something people think they can get rich quick off of while the getting is good. Not a asset that they value intrinsically on any level. For without this speculative function they are valueless to nearly everyone but a very small niche who could just as easily use something else for their transactions.

how is that any different from gold?
>The market for crypto for anything other then a speculation vehicle is microscopic in comparison.
It is the same for many things in society, even housing is subject to bubbles and entirely dependent on investment tax structures etc.
The economic system of society is full of this bullshit. It is not invalid to see the absurdity of crypto valuation, but you must also acknowledge that other assets are also manifestations of the same absurd human psychology. Governments and central banks manage, control and take advantage of these systems. Most monetary value in the economy is vapor

 No.280019

>>280017
>how is that any different from gold?
There is high demand for gold to be used for things and it isn't used as a speculation vehicle. People don't buy gold to try and get rich quick through gambling/scamming. Those would be the most basic. Of course there are many other things aswell.

Renting exists. But people choose to take on huge debt to own the home. Why? Because the value goes up. If the value went down, they would rent.

My understanding is that it is used primarily as a store of value, with investors speculating that it will remain a low volatility hedge. A quick search seems to corroborate this

I make over $2,600 a month from 20% interest on UST on Anchor Protocol.

Combine the money I'm making from interest and the money I make from my job, I'm currently getting around ~$5,000 a month after taxes.

My crypto stack is going straight back into crypto once this bull market concludes and we go back to a bear market for 4 years.

I wouldn't touch cryto right now, as everything is inflated and is ready crash. This clown market can't keep up much longer.

I hope this clown market collapses soon.

It isn't/wasn't a shortage in the traditional sense. Chip production has consistently only increased.
It was a dramatic increase in demand. It takes 2 years to build more factories, meanwhile there are more people buying consumer electronics then ever before, and the chips are used in damn near everything.
So capacity for production just can't keep up at the speed of demand increases, at least for now.
