Deposits/Withdrawals of Bitcoin Diamond disabled on major exchanges - is this coincidence?

I just verified that it's not possible to deposit and withdraw Bitcoin Doamond (BCD) on the following exchanges:
Is this some conspiracy between exchanges?

Putting $400M of Bitcoin on your company balance sheet

Also posted on my blog as usual. Read it there if you can, there are footnotes and inlined plots.
A couple of months ago, MicroStrategy (MSTR) had a spare $400M of cash which it decided to shift to Bitcoin (BTC).
Today we'll discuss in excrutiating detail why this is not a good idea.
When a company has a pile of spare money it doesn't know what to do with, it'll normally do buybacks or start paying dividends. That gives the money back to the shareholders, and from an economic perspective the money can get better invested in other more promising companies. If you have a huge pile of of cash, you probably should be doing other things than leave it in a bank account to gather dust.
However, this statement from MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor exists to make it clear he's buying into BTC for all the wrong reasons:
“This is not a speculation, nor is it a hedge. This was a deliberate corporate strategy to adopt a bitcoin standard.”
Let's unpack it and jump into the economics Bitcoin:

Is Bitcoin money?

No.
Or rather BTC doesn't act as money and there's no serious future path for BTC to become a form of money. Let's go back to basics. There are 3 main economic problems money solves:
1. Medium of Exchange. Before money we had to barter, which led to the double coincidence of wants problem. When everyone accepts the same money you can buy something from someone even if they don't like the stuff you own.
As a medium of exchange, BTC is not good. There are significant transaction fees and transaction waiting times built-in to BTC and these worsen the more popular BTC get.
You can test BTC's usefulness as a medium of exchange for yourself right now: try to order a pizza or to buy a random item with BTC. How many additional hurdles do you have to go through? How many fewer options do you have than if you used a regular currency? How much overhead (time, fees) is there?
2. Unit of Account. A unit of account is what you compare the value of objects against. We denominate BTC in terms of how many USD they're worth, so BTC is a unit of account presently. We can say it's because of lack of adoption, but really it's also because the market value of BTC is so volatile.
If I buy a $1000 table today or in 2017, it's roughly a $1000 table. We can't say that a 0.4BTC table was a 0.4BTC table in 2017. We'll expand on this in the next point:
3. Store of Value. When you create economic value, you don't want to be forced to use up the value you created right away.
For instance, if I fix your washing machine and you pay me in avocados, I'd be annoyed. I'd have to consume my payment before it becomes brown, squishy and disgusting. Avocado fruit is not good money because avocadoes loses value very fast.
On the other hand, well-run currencies like the USD, GBP, CAD, EUR, etc. all lose their value at a low and most importantly fairly predictible rate. Let's look at the chart of the USD against BTC
While the dollar loses value at a predictible rate, BTC is all over the place, which is bad.
One important use money is to write loan contracts. Loans are great. They let people spend now against their future potential earnings, so they can buy houses or start businesses without first saving up for a decade. Loans are good for the economy.
If you want to sign something that says "I owe you this much for that much time" then you need to be able to roughly predict the value of the debt in at the point in time where it's due.
Otherwise you'll have a hard time pricing the risk of the loan effectively. This means that you need to charge higher interests. The risk of making a loan in BTC needs to be priced into the interest of a BTC-denominated loan, which means much higher interest rates. High interests on loans are bad, because buying houses and starting businesses are good things.

BTC has a fixed supply, so these problems are built in

Some people think that going back to a standard where our money was denominated by a stock of gold (the Gold Standard) would solve economic problems. This is nonsense.
Having control over supply of your currency is a good thing, as long as it's well run.
See here
Remember that what is desirable is low variance in the value, not the value itself. When there are wild fluctuations in value, it's hard for money to do its job well.
Since the 1970s, the USD has been a fiat money with no intrinsic value. This means we control the supply of money.
Let's look at a classic poorly drawn econ101 graph
The market price for USD is where supply meets demand. The problem with a currency based on an item whose supply is fixed is that the price will necessarily fluctuate in response to changes in demand.
Imagine, if you will, that a pandemic strikes and that the demand for currency takes a sharp drop. The US imports less, people don't buy anything anymore, etc. If you can't print money, you get deflation, which is worsens everything. On the other hand, if you can make the money printers go brrrr you can stabilize the price
Having your currency be based on a fixed supply isn't just bad because in/deflation is hard to control.
It's also a national security risk...
The story of the guy who crashed gold prices in North Africa
In the 1200s, Mansa Munsa, the emperor of the Mali, was rich and a devout Muslim and wanted everyone to know it. So he embarked on a pilgrimage to make it rain all the way to Mecca.
He in fact made it rain so hard he increased the overall supply of gold and unintentionally crashed gold prices in Cairo by 20%, wreaking an economic havoc in North Africa that lasted a decade.
This story is fun, the larger point that having your inflation be at the mercy of foreign nations is an undesirable attribute in any currency. The US likes to call some countries currency manipulators, but this problem would be serious under a gold standard.

Currencies are based on trust

Since the USD is based on nothing except the US government's word, how can we trust USD not to be mismanaged?
The answer is that you can probably trust the fed until political stooges get put in place. Currently, the US's central bank managing the USD, the Federal Reserve (the Fed for friends & family), has administrative authority. The fed can say "no" to dumb requests from the president.
People who have no idea what the fed does like to chant "audit the fed", but the fed is already one of the best audited US federal entities. The transcripts of all their meetings are out in the open. As is their balance sheet, what they plan to do and why. If the US should audit anything it's the Department of Defense which operates without any accounting at all.
It's easy to see when a central bank will go rogue: it's when political yes-men are elected to the board.
For example, before printing themselves into hyperinflation, the Venezuelan president appointed a sociologist who publicly stated “Inflation does not exist in real life” and instead is a made up capitalist lie. Note what happened mere months after his gaining control over the Venezuelan currency
This is a key policy. One paper I really like, Sargent (1984) "The end of 4 big inflations" states:
The essential measures that ended hyperinflation in each of Germany,Austria, Hungary, and Poland were, first, the creation of an independentcentral bank that was legally committed to refuse the government'sdemand or additional unsecured credit and, second, a simultaneousalteration in the fiscal policy regime.
In english: *hyperinflation stops when the central bank can say "no" to the government."
The US Fed, like other well good central banks, is run by a bunch of nerds. When it prints money, even as aggressively as it has it does so for good reasons. You can see why they started printing on March 15th as the COVID lockdowns started:
The Federal Reserve is prepared to use its full range of tools to support the flow of credit to households and businesses and thereby promote its maximum employment and price stability goals.
In english: We're going to keep printing and lowering rates until jobs are back and inflation is under control. If we print until the sun is blotted out, we'll print in the shade.

BTC is not gold

Gold is a good asset for doomsday-preppers. If society crashes, gold will still have value.
How do we know that?
Gold has held value throughout multiple historic catastrophes over thousands of years. It had value before and after the Bronze Age Collapse, the Fall of the Western Roman Empire and Gengis Khan being Gengis Khan.
Even if you erased humanity and started over, the new humans would still find gold to be economically valuable. When Europeans d̶i̶s̶c̶o̶v̶e̶r̶e̶d̶ c̶o̶n̶q̶u̶e̶r̶e̶d̶ g̶e̶n̶o̶c̶i̶d̶e̶d̶ went to America, they found gold to be an important item over there too. This is about equivalent to finding humans on Alpha-Centauri and learning that they think gold is a good store of value as well.
Some people are puzzled at this: we don't even use gold for much! But it has great properties:
First, gold is hard to fake and impossible to manufacture. This makes it good to ascertain payment.
Second, gold doesnt react to oxygen, so it doesn't rust or tarnish. So it keeps value over time unlike most other materials.
Last, gold is pretty. This might sound frivolous, and you may not like it, but jewelry has actual value to humans.
It's no coincidence if you look at a list of the wealthiest families, a large number of them trade in luxury goods.
To paraphrase Veblen humans have a profound desire to signal social status, for the same reason peacocks have unwieldy tails. Gold is a great way to achieve that.
On the other hand, BTC lacks all these attributes. Its value is largely based on common perception of value. There are a few fundamental drivers of demand:
Apart from these, it's hard to argue that BTC will retain value throughout some sort of economic catastrophe.

BTC is really risky

One last statement from Michael Saylor I take offense to is this:
“We feel pretty confident that Bitcoin is less risky than holding cash, less risky than holding gold,” MicroStrategy CEO said in an interview
"BTC is less risky than holding cash or gold long term" is nonsense. We saw before that BTC is more volatile on face value, and that as long as the Fed isn't run by spider monkeys stacked in a trench coat, the inflation is likely to be within reasonable bounds.
But on top of this, BTC has Abrupt downside risks that normal currencies don't. Let's imagine a few:

Blockchain solutions are fundamentally inefficient

Blockchain was a genius idea. I still marvel at the initial white paper which is a great mix of economics and computer science.
That said, blockchain solutions make large tradeoffs in design because they assume almost no trust between parties. This leads to intentionally wasteful designs on a massive scale.
The main problem is that all transactions have to be validated by expensive computational operations and double checked by multiple parties. This means waste:
Many design problems can be mitigated by various improvements over BTC, but it remains that a simple database always works better than a blockchain if you can trust the parties to the transaction.

Name a 2017 / 2018 moonshot IEO that was initially popular and is now either dead or ghosting away - I'll start, SVD

SVD is Savedroid. Savedroid was an ICO in 2018 right at the peak of the mania, not quite at the top price wise, but still when greed was insanely high.
Now SVD raised an incredible $50 million, for an app that simply automates your saving. That's it. In today's environment I can see that going for maybe $500k or so, IF that. Maybe they could call themselves a Defi food coin instead and get some money in via uniswap.
Demand was very high, with all tokens sold in a week. So all it would do is you would set some criteria - say, if I do 10 push ups a day I want to save $1 into BTC, you'll input that and the app would buy the bitcoin with $1. (I have no idea why you couldn't do that manually, but anyway).
Things got off to a bad start when on day 1 the CEO, Yassin Hankir decided to pull a "fake exit scam", with a twitter message "thanks guys, over and out" with the website replaced with the message "...and its gone". He then back pedalled and said actually it was a joke and meant to show case other scammy projects. Investors weren't particularly amused, especially as this coincided with the coin listing, causing the price to plunge into the eternal depths of hell faster than Grin Coin or an FTX listing.
Well that doesn't really matter because the project seems to have died, with the founder moving onto another project, leaving behind an app that is apparently barely functional, and doesn't even allow ICO investors to use their SVD on the platform.
The ICO price was 1 cent - pretty cheap right? Well no, apparently the token price is now $0.0000541 with a daily volume of zero. Market cap it $158k, but no idea how that is calculated. Not exactly a great way to save if you were an investor!
Naturally they have been delisted from all but a couple of obscure DEXes and even there volume is dead (this is despite various promises of top exchanges).
And the cherry on top - last week the project rebranded as "Trumpbit", a new app that does the same thing (converts your money into BTC) by a certain amount each time Trump tweets. Only problem is people are having trouble moving their funds across from one platform to another, lost email addresses etc. I have no idea what happens if Trump loses the election, maybe it will be come Bidenbit or something. This is of course leaving aside the fact that your $50M ICO has rebranded to a coin named after Trump (not a political comment but a bit of a head scratcher).
You can even pop by their reddit sub, where there have been around 4 comments in 1 year, or if you are bold, visit their telegram group to see various howls of outrage and people wondering where their investment has gone.
Name and shame your preferred coin of death!

Were my Grandparents murderers?

As a kid we would go to upstate New York on vacation to meet up with extended family members.
My Grandparents owned a house which was passed down from their parents.
I loved playing with my cousins. The area was completely remote. You had to drive a mile down a private road to get to the house.
We went at least once a summer, but that tragically ended in the later 1980’s when two of my uncles and my nine year old cousin vanished one day.
As I recall the story, my whole extended family about 30 people were staying the weekend in the house. Some of the older kids would sleep in tents outside because there just wasn’t enough room and the kids liked camping as well.
It wasn’t uncommon for my uncle’s to look for an excuse to get drunk and pretend to hunt deer.
We were all city dwellers and none of my uncle’s really knew anything about hunting rather than put bullets in rifle; aim at deer; and shoot.
One Saturday afternoon, my two uncle’s and cousin ventured out into the woods. Typically, they would get drunk and return after a couple of hours. That Saturday, they didn’t return. I recall about supper time the adults joking that we will see them returning through those woods at anytime with no deer.
As nighttime approached and still no signs of their return, then I remembered the mood had changed and the adults started to freak out.
The adults went out searching for them. I remember being able to hear my family members yell their names through the woods.
Eventually, the police arrived and they formed a search party. They searched all night and the next day with no sign of them.
We extended our stay at the house so my parents could assist in the search.
We stayed for a week and there was still no sign of them. We went back to NYC and my dad would go back to upstate NYC every weekend to search for them.
Understandingly, we stopped going there as a vacation retreat.
Two years went bye, then five years went bye, then eventually 20 years with no bodies being found. There was nothing. No clues at all.
It really changed everything in my family. None of the adults ever seemed happy again.
Fast forward to just a few months ago, I was perusing through free horror movies on demand. You know the ones where you have to watch commercials and really weren’t good enough to be featured on say Netflix.
I read the previews for one of the movies and it was eerily similar to what happened to my uncle’s and cousin.
I decided to watch the movie and the coincidences were extremely unsettling.
There was a long road to the house, there was about the same amount of people who were at the house that Saturday, even to the smallest of details on how three of my male cousins would play on this large boulder in back of the house.
I was glued to the tv because this was literally going to explain what happened to my lost family members.
Then it eventually got to the part, where one of the locals who lived in the woods kidnapped the three of them and sadisticly killed them.
I immediately phoned my brother and in turn he contacted the rest of the family members.
Eventually, we contacted the police and they interrogated the writer of the movie.
Based on the police investigation, it was determined that the actual writer who took credit for the screenplay didn’t write the movie. He actually payed a ghostwriter through bitcoins for his ideas on Reddit.
My family and the police watched the movie for any clues on where the bodies could be.
Another search party was assembled and the bodies were found buried in the basement of a remote cabin about 10 miles from my grandparents upstate house.
The whole family was just perplexed. Who wrote the movie? Who knew all of these intimate details of our family?
The police were unable to figure out who sent the story through Reddit. The ghost writer went through great lengths to hide his computephones IP address.
My whole family went through every possible suspect including everyone in the family. Everyone agreed it couldn’t be anyone in the upstate house that day.
Then, weeks went bye and I must of watched the movie two hundred times and still no suspect.
Then one day,I was watching old home movies and something extremely sinister occurred to me.
My grandfather back in the early 1980’s would draw lines. He would draw the lines on paper, on wood with the pointed end of nails, basically on anything as a nervous tick. Then after my uncles and cousin disappeared he stopped doing it, so I completely forgot about it.
Those lines were important because I remembered seeing two of them in an indiscreet area on the inside door of the cabin.
I knew I really had to sit and think before I accused anyone of anything.
Then, I came up with a possible scenario. My grandfather told my two uncles and cousin to go to the cabin and he would meet them there. Then, when the search party went out to look for them, my grandfather went out on his own to the cabin and killed them.
My grandfather then went back to burry the bodies in the cabin.
I explained the scenario to the rest of my family and most of them agreed with me and were in shock and horror.
My grandfather was dead so he couldn’t be held accountable, but I knew the motive.
He wanted the upstate house for himself. My grandparents were the only ones who continued to visit the house after my uncles and cousin vanished.
Still the mystery remains,who actually wrote the story? My grandfather was dead when the writer of the movie received the story from the ghost writer.
I don’t think whoever wrote the story was actually involved in the plot or the actual murders. I think the ghost writer just wanted to tell what they knew.
Talking to the rest of my family, they remembered my grandfather veering off from the rest of the search party only to return hours later. They also remember my grandfather returning from one of the searches covered in sweat and dirt.
Everyone who was there that week corroborated those events regarding my grandfather and everyone agreed it was virtually impossible for anyone to have assisted my grandfather.
Also, everyone agreed that someone who was there that Saturday was the Ghostwriter. Potentially, even my grandmother, which would really be dark because there was actually bitcoins exchanged for the story.

Your Choice To Make

TL;DR: Wakey wakey, give a crap about freedom, or accept the consequences.
Another Sunday afternoon, another news item about Monero being delisted from a centralized exchange, this time in Australia.
Last year it was OKEx and others.
Just a few days ago it was Coinspot.
It is sort of an open secret that Coinbase is not listing Monero due to external pressures. Today we're hit with news that Kraken will be ceasing Monero trading for AU residents.
And you will also recall that Japan and South Korea have made similar moves.
It's a near impossibility with me, especially when powered by caffeine, which is most definitely the case today, but I will try to make this brief, sweet and to the point.
These are not isolated incidents. There is an International Organization™ in particular orchestrating, behind the scenes, the policies and requirements that financial institutions (crypto exchanges have since joined that category for this purpose) must follow, or else.
Here is what bothers me about this.
Have you been consulted about this? Anyone you know?
Heard of it in the news?
Yeah, me neither.
You have to know where to look to find some information on what they would like to see happening (we'll get to that in a moment), and often you have to read PDFs with dozens of pages to find the good stuff too.
I will leave that as an exercise to the reader. Suffice to say, I have been digging a bit deeper myself, and what I found shocked me.
FATF wants nothing less than the complete elimination of anonymity and privacy in financial affairs, even going so far as to consider BANNING peer to peer transactions so that people are forced to interact with each other through exchanges, where data collection is more reliable and certain, effectively obliterating one of the major selling points of cryptocurrency (p2p-ness) with complete disregard for the millions of people who are already onboard with the vision.
No privacy and no anonymity, imagine that.
Many of you probably already use plastic cards for everything, day in day out, and don't think too much about this stuff.
But the fact that an international organization that you have little to zero democratic control over is planning to get rid of class of financial tools that 99.99999% of people don't even realize exists yet should give you pause for concern.
The tools I speak of are, of course, digital cash-like cryptocurrencies like Monero.
I would like you to PAUSE, daydream a bit, visualize and imagine, what a world without zero financial privacy/anonymity would look like.
Consider, this has certainly not been the case in human history, ever -- yes, even today.
Today most of you still have cash as a choice. But what happens when that goes out of the window, and the only options are CBDCs, CorporateCoins, and transparent cryptocurrency ?
Needless to say, both in the case of CorporateCoins and CBDCs, there will be little to none privacy/anonymity, and even if there was (in the case of CorporateCoin), the state would obviously bully its way into it and force them to do otherwise (without being asked to do so, of course).
So, imagine that world.
Every donation you make. Every $50 transfer to a friend or family member. Every item you buy. Every service you purchase. Every money you send to help a friend you.
All of it stored, forever, to be accessed later at will for whatever reasons.
Would you make the same choices, knowing that your entire financial life is entirely exposed to powerful organizations of which you likely know very little about and almost certainly can hardly ever influence at all?
Does that seem like a good recipe for a free society?

Consequences

The people at the top either don't care about the consequences of what they're imposing worldwide, or they don't understand.
Sounds highly concerning to me either way - It comes down to either bullying or ignorance.
Would you ever have truly heart-to-heart conversations if you knew your worst enemy was potentially watching and recording everything?
Could you make passionate love knowing hundreds of strangers are analyzing your every move?
Can you be spontaneous knowing you are being recorded?
What if you did not have a choice in those matters ?!
What if someone has already decided for you, your friends, your family, your neighbors, your country, that you are all potential criminals and the thing to do is to keep records on everyone, just in case ?
Newsflash: It already happened.
It's been happening for awhile, and it seems to be picking up pace; the technology that was going to liberate us, slowly enslaving us instead -- because the general public largely does not understand the issues at hand, while the elite certainly does, and boy oh boy, are they thrilled with the technological advancements that help them cement their power.
What do I mean by cement?
Imagine trying to kick-start civil rights in a place where every social map is known, everything a person is interested in is known, every transaction they make is known, every website they have visited is known, every time they step on the street, an AI-powered camera automatically identifies them and tracks their movement.
You would be unable to organize. To exchange value. To discuss behind curtains, so to speak.
You would not have any privacy, and you would not have any anonymity.
Could you be free under these circumstances?

Conclusion

It's been a long road towards more freedom, but nowdays it is disappearing fast. Stopping to consider the implications is a most pressing issue.
They want Monero(-like tools) GONE because Monero ACTUALLY would change the paradigm.
By the time they are done with their "recommendations" (which really mean: comply, or else...), mark my words, there will be a name behind every Bitcoin address in some centralized database, query-able by partners in deciding who can and cannot use the system.
Merchants will be forced to perform chain analysis and by law they will be compelled to reject/refund/report transactions coming from "anonymous clusters" (addresses that are not known to have an identity tied to them).
This is what the normalization of the lack of privacy has brought us.
The possibility was there, and they took it. Of course they did.
I repeat, it is no accident that it's not Dogecoin and Nano, Bitcoin or Litecoin being delisted.
The star of the show (for better or for worse) is Monero, and that is because it works.
It lets you transact anonymously and privately, like cash - why the hell should FATF know that you sent $500 to your mother last week? in fact, why the hell should they know your entire financial history?!
When cash goes (and we can be fairly certain that it will be gone; would already be gone if this sort of authoritarian mindset had its way), Monero or tools like Monero, will become the only way to make any transaction outside the eyes of the state.
It's not because you have anything (nefarious) to hide. It's not because you're a criminal.
Rather, it's because to accept anything else is to bow to tyranny.
It's your choice to make - are you meekly going to accept that in perhaps less than a decade there will be zero privacy and anonymity in financial matters, or are you going to fight back?
Will you organize, campaign, email, discuss, spread awareness?
Will you spend precious summer Sunday afternoons writing for strangers on the Internet trying to help a few more see the major shit-show we're headed into?
Or will you be a good boy and do what you're told?
Tomorrow, by the way - if left unchallenged - it won't just be financial privacy that disappears.
One of the most prominent examples in the introductory part of this post (Australia) has already made quite clear that they don't like the fact that people can hide things from them (encryption).
In other words, either they know about it (and archive it forever), or you better let them know. After all, a threat - any threat! - could be lurking somewhere in that encrypted data. And you have nothing to hide anyway, yes?
This is a cryptocurrency sub though so let's not steer too far from that. It is important to remember that ultimately the issue is the same though - totalitarian control over everyone's life; mass-surveillance, and the ability to rewind and see someone's entire life exposed for the benefit of the state.
Their actions are letting you know what really works and what really threatens the status quo. That is useful information.
If you care at all about the freedom and privacy of your future self, your friends and family, children present or future, I think you would do well to think long and hard about these issues.
Because the direction assumed by the most prominent regulators seems to be headed in a uniform direction - that is no surprise, seeing as how they meet with each other.
You have to ask yourself though, is this for your benefit, your safety?
Or is it to keep the statuo quo?
How would the world be different if human beings - regardless of color, nationality, age, sexual orientation, political beliefs- with an Internet connection could freely exchange value privately and anonymously (the way we can still communicate private and anonymously in most places today - though not so in authoritarian places like China, AND THAT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE)?
It would be instant, like an instant message. It would cost very little.
Well, I have news for you: It's already possible, and a growing number of people are realizing this.
This tool is called Monero. It exists today, and the cat is out of the bag. The technology will only get better, and more interesting tools may even come along later.
In fact, barring mass persecution of open-source developers, that is very likely what is going to happen, as ultrasmart people everywhere congregate in virtual spaces to discuss better ways to do stuff.
If we keep losing our right to be left alone until suspected of a crime, life will increasingly come to resemble what the regulator types are - consciously or unconsciously - creating: a Panopticon society.
If you don't speak up, then the decision has already been made - and you're probably going to live to regret being complicit in it.
Freedom or Tyranny. It's your choice to make.
p.s: Yes, totally failed at making this short. I guess it's just not my thing.

About Bitcoin mining in Egypt and GPUs

Hello,
Just wanted to make a post discussing this matter in Egypt. I hope someone from government also reads reddit.
I can understand logical reasons why Egypt would want to prohibit Bitcoin mining:
  1. Paying electricity at subsidized price and then selling Bitcoins for money means you're stealing the subsidy.
  2. Untraceable Bitcoin can be used for criminal activities or terrorist finance.
  3. Income from Bitcoin mining is not official and counts as income, so taxes are not being paid on it.
Since they suspect people who buy GPUs of doing this, I propose the following:
  1. Let people declare that they are mining Bitcoin and remove electrical subsidy from them (let them pay the highest electricity tier price). Let them also count the electricity as expenses to avoid double-taxing.
  2. Require that the wallets that receive the mining proceeds be made known to the government.
  3. Open a local Egyptian Bitcoin exchange and when mining bitcoins are sold for EGP, count the EGP as capital gains or income and make people pay taxes on them as such.
  4. Prohibit any transfer of those bitcoin between individuals and allow the only action to be done on them is keep them or sell them on a legitimate exchange which requires KYC/AML.
Instead of causing unnecessary headache for people who want to simply buy a GPU to play games by stopping or delaying all GPUs being imported, simply require that the imported GPUs be registered to the individual name (file automatically opened by customs without need of input from the importer), and set a limit for the number of graphics cards imported annually for individual use.
In addition, for people who are not registered as bitcoin miners (or doing high electricity load work), if there's an unnatural large increase in the electricity consumption suddenly that doesn't coincide with a legitimate reason (eg: summer time and start of use of Air Conditioners) and the increase goes beyond the level historically consumed by the residence, then you can suspect that they are mining bitcoin, and then you can then investigate them.
This way, both the government requirements can be satisfied and at the same time, people who just want to play games or do 3D work do not need to be unnecessarily harmed or impeded by regulations.
This post can be considered as an open letter to anyone from authorities.

Open-Interest On Binance Exceed More Than $1 Billion In August

Binance’s crypto futures platform recorded an all-time high open-interest figure of $1 billion last month, as per the Binance August trading report. The crypto exchange behemoth noted that the stratospheric rise in open interest coincided with Bitcoin’s price rise to $12,000 during the beginning of August. Also, when BTC attempted to break past the $12,400 mark, which is the current 2020 high, futures open interest hit $1 billion again.

[RF] were my Grandparents murderers?

As a kid we would go to upstate New York on vacation to meet up with extended family members.
My Grandparents owned a house which was passed down from their parents.
I loved playing with my cousins. The area was completely remote. You had to drive a mile down a private road to get to the house.
We went at least once a summer, but that tragically ended in the later 1980’s when two of my uncles and my nine year old cousin vanished one day.
As I recall the story, my whole extended family about 30 people were staying the weekend in the house. Some of the older kids would sleep in tents outside because there just wasn’t enough room and the kids liked camping as well.
It wasn’t uncommon for my uncle’s to look for an excuse to get drunk and pretend to hunt deer.
We were all city dwellers and none of my uncle’s really knew anything about hunting rather than put bullets in rifle; aim at deer; and shoot.
One Saturday afternoon, my two uncle’s and cousin ventured out into the woods. Typically, they would get drunk and return after a couple of hours. That Saturday, they didn’t return. I recall about supper time the adults joking that we will see them returning through those woods at anytime with no deer.
As nighttime approached and still no signs of their return, then I remembered the mood had changed and the adults started to freak out.
The adults went out searching for them. I remember being able to hear my family members yell their names through the woods.
Eventually, the police arrived and they formed a search party. They searched all night and the next day with no sign of them.
We extended our stay at the house so my parents could assist in the search.
We stayed for a week and there was still no sign of them. We went back to NYC and my dad would go back to upstate NYC every weekend to search for them.
Understandingly, we stopped going there as a vacation retreat.
Two years went bye, then five years went bye, then eventually 20 years with no bodies being found. There was nothing. No clues at all.
It really changed everything in my family. None of the adults ever seemed happy again.
Fast forward to just a few months ago, I was perusing through free horror movies on demand. You know the ones where you have to watch commercials and really weren’t good enough to be featured on say Netflix.
I read the previews for one of the movies and it was eerily similar to what happened to my uncle’s and cousin.
I decided to watch the movie and the coincidences were extremely unsettling.
There was a long road to the house, there was about the same amount of people who were at the house that Saturday, even to the smallest of details on how three of my male cousins would play on this large boulder in back of the house.
I was glued to the tv because this was literally going to explain what happened to my lost family members.
Then it eventually got to the part, where one of the locals who lived in the woods kidnapped the three of them and sadisticly killed them.
I immediately phoned my brother and in turn he contacted the rest of the family members.
Eventually, we contacted the police and they interrogated the writer of the movie.
Based on the police investigation, it was determined that the actual writer who took credit for the screenplay didn’t write the movie. He actually payed a ghostwriter through bitcoins for his ideas on Reddit.
My family and the police watched the movie for any clues on where the bodies could be.
Another search party was assembled and the bodies were found buried in the basement of a remote cabin about 10 miles from my grandparents upstate house.
The whole family was just perplexed. Who wrote the movie? Who knew all of these intimate details of our family?
The police were unable to figure out who sent the story through Reddit. The ghost writer went through great lengths to hide his computephones IP address.
My whole family went through every possible suspect including everyone in the family. Everyone agreed it couldn’t be anyone in the upstate house that day.
Then, weeks went bye and I must of watched the movie two hundred times and still no suspect.
Then one day,I was watching old home movies and something extremely sinister occurred to me.
My grandfather back in the early 1980’s would draw lines. He would draw the lines on paper, on wood with the pointed end of nails, basically on anything as a nervous tick. Then after my uncles and cousin disappeared he stopped doing it, so I completely forgot about it.
Those lines were important because I remembered seeing two of them in an indiscreet area on the inside door of the cabin.
I knew I really had to sit and think before I accused anyone of anything.
Then, I came up with a possible scenario. My grandfather told my two uncles and cousin to go to the cabin and he would meet them there. Then, when the search party went out to look for them, my grandfather went out on his own to the cabin and killed them.
My grandfather then went back to burry the bodies in the cabin.
I explained the scenario to the rest of my family and most of them agreed with me and were in shock and horror.
My grandfather was dead so he couldn’t be held accountable, but I knew the motive.
He wanted the upstate house for himself. My grandparents were the only ones who continued to visit the house after my uncles and cousin vanished.
Still the mystery remains,who actually wrote the story? My grandfather was dead when the writer of the movie received the story from the ghost writer.
I don’t think whoever wrote the story was actually involved in the plot or the actual murders. I think the ghost writer just wanted to tell what they knew.
Talking to the rest of my family, they remembered my grandfather veering off from the rest of the search party only to return hours later. They also remember my grandfather returning from one of the searches covered in sweat and dirt.
Everyone who was there that week corroborated those events regarding my grandfather and everyone agreed it was virtually impossible for anyone to have assisted my grandfather.
Also, everyone agreed that someone who was there that Saturday was the Ghostwriter. Potentially, even my grandmother, which would really be dark because there was actually bitcoins exchanged for the story.

Filecoin se dispara mientras espera el lanzamiento de su mainnet. Bitcoin cash sigue al alza

Filecoin se dispara mientras espera el lanzamiento de su mainnet. Bitcoin cash sigue al alza


A medida que se acerca el lanzamiento de la mainnet de la nueva criptomoneda filecoin (FIL), prevista para hoy 15 de octubre, su precio no ha dejado de crecer.
Esta semana las exchanges Kraken y Gemini anunciaron que sus plataformas darán soporte comercial y de custodia a filecoin a partir de este jueves.
FIL es la nueva criptomoneda de Filecoin Network, descrita en su página web como “una red de almacenamiento descentralizada diseñada para guardar la información más importante de la humanidad”.
El proyecto destaca entre otros de su mismo tipo por contar con una gran financiación (205 millones) desde 2017.
La red de filecoin es promovida por mineros que disponen de la potencia computacional y el espacio de almacenamiento necesario. Estos son recompensados con las tarifas que pagan los usuarios de FIL por la provisión y recuperación de datos.
Este nuevo modelo descentralizado representa una alternativa prometedora a las ofertas en nube de almacenamiento centralizado existentes.

Su precio se disparó

Al cierre de este reporte (9:30 am en Venezuela o 1:30pm UTC) filecoin cotizó en $108 con un aumento de precio del 265% en las últimas 24 horas, según Coinmarketcap.
En ese lapso de tiempo tuvo un volumen de operaciones de $19.691.390 y su capitalización quedó en $1.584.055.215.
Por su parte, bitcoin cash sigue al alza por segundo día consecutivo cotizando en $260.
Su variación de las últimas 24 horas fue de 2,16% con un volumen de comercio de $2.844.061.754.
Su capitalización se ubicó en $4.838.864.500.
Binance coin también tuvo una jornada positiva al crecer un 0,84%.
Su precio quedó en $30,99 y su capitalización en $4,471,210,823.

El bitcoin sigue muy estable

En cuanto a la principal criptomoneda, su variación ha sido mínima. En las últimas 24 horas el bitcoin perdió un 0,34%, cotizando en $11.365 al finalizar esta redacción.
Desde la misma hora de ayer miércoles su precio osciló entre $11.303 y $11.539, con un volumen de operaciones de $26.600.030.760.
Su capitalización quedó en $210.471.588.359.
Su baja variación coincide con los bajos niveles de volatilidad que presenta, según Buybitcoinworldwide.

Vuelve la codicia

Los sentimientos del mercado de bitcoins amanecieron este jueves en la zona de codicia, manteniendo el comportamiento intermitente de las últimas semanas.
El índice de miedo y avaricia se ubicó en 56 puntos, tres puntos más que ayer.

Is Paxful against responsible disclosure of vulnerabilities or is this all just a mistake? $10-$200 free BTC if we can resolve this

TLDR; I discovered and responsibly disclosed multiple bugs/vulnerabilities with significant impact on Paxful's marketplace, weeks later Paxful froze my account thinking I was maliciously making use of part of the very vulnerability I reported. I was testing whether had been fully patched as it posed risks to my operations as a vendor as well as Paxful's marketplace as a whole if it were publicly disclosed and abused by malicious actors. I would be happy to consider signing the NDA related to this vulnerability if we can resolve this in a timely manner. Things ended in my vendor account being bannéd nearly 2 weeks ago as the support and security team assumed API testing activity was spam despite my prior in-depth communications with them. They cited multiple warnings August 6-18 which, as cited below are not legitimate in nature and likely due to a break down in communications and/or failure to investigate the nature of my activity. I suspect some of this may be related to a language barrier as I and other vendors frequently receive messages in broken english containing incorrect or irrelevant information.
Please consider posting a comment regarding your experience with Paxful's bug bounty program or support team.
I am offering $10 in BTC to each Paxful ID verified user who comments on this post with a relevant comment if my Paxful account's ban is lifted. Moderators are excluded from this to avoid conflicts of interest. Additional restrictions:
Alternatively, if this post does not receive atleast 20 comments from ID verified users, I am offering $200 in BTC to anyone who can put me in touch with someone at Paxful who can actually resolve this. Payout will be made only if my vendor account ban is lifted.
5/17/20 — I reported vulnerability #1 to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
07/06/20 — I reported vulnerability #2 to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) "Trade transcripts can be made unretrievable, when abused by users moderators might be unable to review disputes" to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) . Some of the testing involved posting arbitrary strings such as “aa.co”, “bbco”, etc. repeatedly to old cancelled trades. This is not spam, however it’s been wrongly assumed to be spam.
08/05/20 — Despite my clearly positive intentions, I was advised by a Paxful dev ops engineer to not attempt to mitigate the risk of coin lockers, scammers and extortion through the use of automated scripted messaging in trade chats as it could cause problems for Paxful staff. I was asked to strictly rely on moderators for resolving such issues (despite the historical lack of recourse against scams). I immediately ceased such activity and made it clear I was prepared to comply with this request and was previously unaware that this might cause problems for staff.
08/06/20 — No further use of scripted messaging to get rid of coin lockers, I opted to strictly rely on moderators for such issues. I performed tests via Paxful’s API related to the bug bounty report on 07/06/20 using specific API endpoints on trades where it would not hinder any transaction or where staff might need to be involved.
Criteria used for selected trades to use for vulnerability testing:
Ideally I would have used a test account or testnet like most exchanges offer but I was specifically told not to and prior to 08/05/20 there were no concerns about my usage of Paxful's API.
08/08-10/20 — (Request # 221122 ) My vendor account was frózen, I tweeted at raypaxful and it was unfrózen. I was told by support (request # 221122) that my API testing was flagged by Paxful’s system as spam. Support issued an apology and placed a note on my account that I may be performing such tests going forward and they valued my bug bounty reports.
08/12/20 — I was wrongly accused again of spamming the trade chat despite my continued compliance with the request from [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) on 08/05/20. Two trades were cited:GYokxnZdbmx — blatantly obvious API testing involving posting repeated strings such as “aa.co”
6Jm586J6Mox — trade from 04/21/20, why are you warning me about a trade from 4 months ago when it wasn’t indicated that Paxful had an issue with scripted message being use to deal with malicious actors when moderators are nowhere in sight? After all these months, why didn’t you take any action against the malicious user here? This doesn’t require contacting any gift card company, you can clearly see this user provided a cropped picture of a gift card making it unredeemable yet they locked my coins for days. The reason you’re aware of activity like this being a risk to the marketplace is a direct result of the bug bounty report I filed on on 07/06/20 for which I was never paid despite being promised a "reward". Who in their right mind is going to file a bug bounty report and then proceed to abuse that bug? A little more investigation and logical reasoning is needed here.
08/18/20 (Request # 170377) I was accused yet again of spamming the trade chat despite my continued compliance with the request from [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) on 08/05/20. I responded to this reminding support that I had continued to comply with this request and that “warning” me of something I’ve been in compliance with ever since I was aware of the issue is extremely disingenuous.
08/19/20 (Request # 170377), BitcoinBell’s response:*“Spamming and account notation: Like I said, I've communicated with [Paxful dev ops engineer name redacted] multiple times regarding excessive scripted messaging being used to ward off scammers, the behavior won't continue.”*Scripted messaging posted via API to deal with scammers had not taken place ever since the concern was first brought to my attention on 08/05/20. Paxful support appears to have been under the impression that this was not the case and proceeded to “warn me” again as if I was refusing to comply with their prior request. It would appear that they did not realize my activity was bug bounty related testing using old cancelled trades as my only authorized means of carrying out such tests without being disruptive to transactions.
“Had I known this caused problems for Paxful's team I wouldn't have done it but there was no mention in Paxful's API documentation that such activity could cause problems for Paxful's team. Most websites have proper rate limiting in place to deal with excessive posting of the same message so they don't have to waste their time policing what messages are being posted. Again, I'm not arguing for continuing this behavior as it's now been made clear it causes problems for Paxful's team but I hope you can see nothing in Paxful's API documentation clearly prohibits such use and that it was being used in good faith to ward off bad actors. In a marketplace filled with malicious actors, I don't appreciate being "warned" as if I did something malicious here when there was no indication of it being a problem, until recently.” (and have been in compliance with the request since first alerted on 08/05/20)”
08/21/20 I was offered a bug bounty payout for the vulnerabilities/bugs reported on 07/06/20 and 05/17/20. The amount was around 5-12% of the national average for bug bounty payouts. I was asked to sign a lengthy NDA which I had to forward to my attorney for review.
08/26/20 I made a counteroffer to the proposed bug bounty payments around and below the national average for bug bounty payouts.
08/26/20 I reported a new bug to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) that could lead to users visiting malicious sites from Paxful's trade chat without warning.
08/27/20 8:01 AM UTC I reported a new bug to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) that significantly impacted vendors in countless payment methods which since been patched:"Regex intended to block external contact info also blocks all gift card numbers that contain 6 sequential digits, huge potential burden on vendors, confusion for buyers"
08/27/20 8:30 AM UTC I received an e-mail that my vendor account had been bannéd. Despite having several active trades, the 0.1 BTC bond and all funds were made available for my immediate withdrawal. What's the point of a 0.1 BTC bond if Paxful makes it immediately available to bannéd users with active trades?
Is Paxful against responsible disclosure or is this all just a coincidence? The vulnerability I reported on 07/06/20 specifically alerted Paxful’s security team to risks of spam and difficulties it might create for users and moderators if moderators did not have special tools that would make this a non-issue. No concerns related to this vulnerability were made apparent until 08/05/20.
For the sake of brevity I'm leaving out a number of other material ongoing and prior issues encountered with Paxful support that impeded my ability to provide seamless service on Paxful's platform. I have gone to great lengths to articulate these issues to support with little/no resolution despite their often simplistic nature.

A limit order or a simple limit order is performed when the asset fee reaches—or even exceeds—the price the trader seeks. To execute such an order, it is required that there's a counter market order on the platform that has the identical fee as the limit order.

Differences between Limit Order and Stop Limit Order

A stop limit order is a mixture of a stop limit order and a limit order. In such an application, charges are indicated—a stop charge and the limit.

Trade Terminal

Let’s discuss how you could trade conveniently with our service.
The key features include a user-friendly interface and precise currency pair statistics (timeframe graphs, network data, trade volumes, and so forth).
The platform’s top-notch advantage is handy, easy-to-analyze, customizable charts. There is also a column for quick switching between currency pairs and an order panel beneath the fee chart. Such an all-encompassing visual solution helps compare orders efficiently and in one place.
You can use the terminal in a day or night mode; when in the night mode, the icon in the upper-right corner changes and notice the Bittrex trading terminal in night mode is displayed. The main menu consists of 4 sections: Markets, Orders, Wallets, Settings.
Markets are the trade section. Bittrex allows handling over 270 currency pairs.
Orders. To see all open orders, go to OrdersOpen.
To see completed orders, go to OrdersCompleted.
Wallets. The Wallets tab displays many wallets for all cryptocurrencies supported by the exchange and the current balance of each of them.
After refilling the balance or creating a buy or sale order, you will see all actions in the section. Bittrex allows creating a separate wallet for every coin. Additionally, you can see how the coin price has changed, in terms of percentage, throughout the day.
Here’s what you can also do with your wallets:
  • Hide zero balances: hide currencies with zero balance
  • Green and red arrows: replenish balance/withdraw funds
  • Find: search for a cryptocurrency
The Settings section helps manage your account, verification, 2FA, password modification, API connection, and many more.

How to Sell

The process of selling crypto assets follows the same algorithm. The only difference is that after choosing the exchange direction, you need to initiate a Sell order. All the rest is similar: you select the order type, specify the quantity and price, and click Sell *Currency Name* (Sell Bitcoin in our case).
If you scroll the screen, the entire history of trades and orders will be displayed below.

LONG and SHORT

You can make a long deal or a short deal. Your choice depends on whether you expect an asset to fall or rise in price.
Long positions are a classic trading method. It concerns purchasing an asset to profit when its value increases. Long positions are carried out through any brokers and do not require a margin account. In this case, the trader’s account must have enough funds to cover the transaction.
Losses in a long position are considered to be limited; no matter when the trade starts, the price will not fall below zero with all possible errors. Short positions, in contrast, are used to profit from a falling market. A trader buys a financial instrument from a broker and sells it. After the price reaches the target level, the trader buys back the assets or buys them to pay off the initial debt to the broker.
A short position yields profit if the price falls, and it is considered unprofitable the price matches the asset value. Performing a short order requires a margin account as a trader borrows valuable assets from a broker to complete a transaction. Long transactions help gain from market growth; short from a market decline.

Trade via API

Bittrex also supports algorithmic trading through extensive APIs (application programming interface), which allows you to automate the trading process using third-party services.
To create an API key, the user must enable the two-factor authentication 2FA, verify their account, and log in to the site within 3 minutes.
If all the requirements of the system are fulfilled, you can proceed to generate the API key. Log in to your Bittrex account, click Settings. Find API Keys. Click Add new key (Create a new key).
Toggle on / off settings for READ INFO, TRADE, or WITHDRAW, depending on what functionality you want to use for our API key.
Click Save and enter the 2FA code from the authenticator → Confirm.
The secret key will be displayed only once and will disappear after the page is refreshed. Make sure you saved it!
To delete an API key, click X in the right corner for the key that you want to delete, then click Save, enter the 2FA code from the authenticator and click Confirm.

Bittrex Bot, a Trader’s Assistant

Robotized programs that appeared sometimes after the appearance of cryptocurrency exchanges save users from monotonous work and allow automating the trading process.
Bots for trading digital money work like all the other bots: they perform mechanical trading according to the preset parameters.
Currently, one of Bittrex’s most popular trading bots is Bittrex Flash Crash Buyer Bot that helps traders profit from altcoin volatility without missing the right moment.
The program monitors all the market changes in the market every second; also, it even can place an order in advance. The Bittrex bot can handle a stop loss—to sell a certain amount of currency when the rate changes in a favorable direction and reaches a certain level.

8. Secure Platform

Bittrex Global employs the most reliable and effective security technologies available. There are many cases of theft, fraud. It is no coincidence that the currency is compared to the Wild West, especially if we compare the 1800s when cowboys rushed to the West Coast of America to earn and start something new in a place that had no rules.
Cryptocurrency is still wild. One can earn and lose money fast. But Bittrex has a substantial security policy thanks to the team’s huge experience in security and development for companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, Qualys, and Blackberry.
The system employs an elastic, multi-stage holding strategy to ensure that the majority of funds are kept in cold storage for extra safety.
Bittrex Global also enables the two-factor authentication for all users and provides a host of additional security features to provide multiple layers of protection.

To ensure even more security, Bittrex Global supports whitelisting of IP addresses and Crypto addresses. These two features can help protect the account in the event of credentials or API key loss.

How to Add IP Address to Whitelist

By setting one or more whitelisted addresses, you are telling Bittrex Global to only authorize trades or withdrawals from those IPs. This concerns both the global.bittrex.com web interface and API-based trades or withdrawals. To do this, click IP Whitelist in Site Settings.

Were my Grandparents my murderers?

As a kid we would go to upstate New York on vacation to meet up with extended family members.
My Grandparents owned a house which was passed down from their parents.
I loved playing with my cousins. The area was completely remote. You had to drive a mile down a private road to get to the house.
We went at least once a summer, but that tragically ended in the later 1980’s when two of my uncles and my nine year old cousin vanished one day.
As I recall the story, my whole extended family about 30 people were staying the weekend in the house. Some of the older kids would sleep in tents outside because there just wasn’t enough room and the kids liked camping as well.
It wasn’t uncommon for my uncle’s to look for an excuse to get drunk and pretend to hunt deer.
We were all city dwellers and none of my uncle’s really knew anything about hunting rather than put bullets in rifle; aim at deer; and shoot.
One Saturday afternoon, my two uncle’s and cousin ventured out into the woods. Typically, they would get drunk and return after a couple of hours. That Saturday, they didn’t return. I recall about supper time the adults joking that we will see them returning through those woods at anytime with no deer.
As nighttime approached and still no signs of their return, then I remembered the mood had changed and the adults started to freak out.
The adults went out searching for them. I remember being able to hear my family members yell their names through the woods.
Eventually, the police arrived and they formed a search party. They searched all night and the next day with no sign of them.
We extended our stay at the house so my parents could assist in the search.
We stayed for a week and there was still no sign of them. We went back to NYC and my dad would go back to upstate NYC every weekend to search for them.
Understandingly, we stopped going there as a vacation retreat.
Two years went bye, then five years went bye, then eventually 20 years with no bodies being found. There was nothing. No clues at all.
It really changed everything in my family. None of the adults ever seemed happy again.
Fast forward to just a few months ago, I was perusing through free horror movies on demand. You know the ones where you have to watch commercials and really weren’t good enough to be featured on say Netflix.
I read the previews for one of the movies and it was eerily similar to what happened to my uncle’s and cousin.
I decided to watch the movie and the coincidences were extremely unsettling.
There was a long road to the house, there was about the same amount of people who were at the house that Saturday, even to the smallest of details on how three of my male cousins would play on this large boulder in back of the house.
I was glued to the tv because this was literally going to explain what happened to my lost family members.
Then it eventually got to the part, where one of the locals who lived in the woods kidnapped the three of them and sadisticly killed them.
I immediately phoned my brother and in turn he contacted the rest of the family members.
Eventually, we contacted the police and they interrogated the writer of the movie.
Based on the police investigation, it was determined that the actual writer who took credit for the screenplay didn’t write the movie. He actually payed a ghostwriter through bitcoins for his ideas on Reddit.
My family and the police watched the movie for any clues on where the bodies could be.
Another search party was assembled and the bodies were found buried in the basement of a remote cabin about 10 miles from my grandparents upstate house.
The whole family was just perplexed. Who wrote the movie? Who knew all of these intimate details of our family?
The police were unable to figure out who sent the story through Reddit. The ghost writer went through great lengths to hide his computephones IP address.
My whole family went through every possible suspect including everyone in the family. Everyone agreed it couldn’t be anyone in the upstate house that day.
Then, weeks went bye and I must of watched the movie two hundred times and still no suspect.
Then one day,I was watching old home movies and something extremely sinister occurred to me.
My grandfather back in the early 1980’s would draw lines. He would draw the lines on paper, on wood with the pointed end of nails, basically on anything as a nervous tick. Then after my uncles and cousin disappeared he stopped doing it, so I completely forgot about it.
Those lines were important because I remembered seeing two of them in an indiscreet area on the inside door of the cabin.
I knew I really had to sit and think before I accused anyone of anything.
Then, I came up with a possible scenario. My grandfather told my two uncles and cousin to go to the cabin and he would meet them there. Then, when the search party went out to look for them, my grandfather went out on his own to the cabin and killed them.
My grandfather then went back to burry the bodies in the cabin.
I explained the scenario to the rest of my family and most of them agreed with me and were in shock and horror.
My grandfather was dead so he couldn’t be held accountable, but I knew the motive.
He wanted the upstate house for himself. My grandparents were the only ones who continued to visit the house after my uncles and cousin vanished.
Still the mystery remains,who actually wrote the story? My grandfather was dead when the writer of the movie received the story from the ghost writer.
I don’t think whoever wrote the story was actually involved in the plot or the actual murders. I think the ghost writer just wanted to tell what they knew.
Talking to the rest of my family, they remembered my grandfather veering off from the rest of the search party only to return hours later. They also remember my grandfather returning from one of the searches covered in sweat and dirt.
Everyone who was there that week corroborated those events regarding my grandfather and everyone agreed it was virtually impossible for anyone to have assisted my grandfather.
Also, everyone agreed that someone who was there that Saturday was the Ghostwriter. Potentially, even my grandmother, which would really be dark because there was actually bitcoins exchanged for the story.

Warning: Blockchain difficulty adjustment affecting price movements

Below are notable difficulty adjustments when hash rate fell and block times become slower for Bitcoin.
  1. 26 Mar 2020 [difficulty adjustment -15.95%, avg block time 11min 54secs]. On the 28th price crashed from $6674 to $6138 ( -8%).
  2. 8 Nov 2019 [difficulty adjustment -7.1%, avg block time 10min 46secs]. On the same day price crashed from $9234 to $8783 ( -4.88%).
  3. The next big adjustment was around Nov to Dec 2018 and there were 3 big adjustments with high block times.

Current situation:
We are 1 day 10 hours from the next difficulty adjustment. Projected difficulty adjustment is -5.61% (https://fork.lol/pow/retarget), which could indicate a small dip. However, take note that the date of last adjustment was the 5th and the 3rd halving was on the 11th, between the 5th to the 11th there was increased hashrate from miners trying to mine the final week of 12.5btc that offset the really slow block times after the halving. Therefore it will be the next difficulty adjustment after the one on the 20th that will completely reflect the slower block times after the halving. Currently the median block time taken on the 17th was around 14min (-28.5% difficulty adjustment).
For people who do not understand blockchain, basically with the Bitcoin 3rd halving, mining profitability fell for a lot of miners and they probably turned off their miners therefore the blockchain mining time became considerably slower which is reflected with slow transaction speed and higher fees as seen currently. Bitcoin sellers moving their BTC from wallet to an exchange are faced with slow transaction speed and therefore the sell pressure of BTC fell considerably which will attribute to the current price increase. There is a correlation between sell pressure and blockchain congestion (the size of the correlation is undetermined).
There is going to be a race. A race between BTC price hiking high enough to attract more miners to reduce avg block times versus the closing window of roughly 2 weeks before the next difficulty adjustment. If the price does not jump high enough, the next difficulty adjustment in the first week of June could signal a huge dip.
I am not an expert. I just did some research on the above and wanted to share with fellow Bitcoin compatriots so that we can tread with caution and not lose our shirts. I do not plan to short BTC but I will exit my BTC positions if I expect double digit negative difficulty adjustment in early June.
Please visit the original post here https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/gm23pe/warning_blockchain_difficulty_adjustment/
There are pictures in the original post as well as 2nd halving evidence with pics. I could not post pics here. If possible please upvote the original post, a lot of people downvote it. Not sure why people downvote it, maybe veterans attempting to hide information from newcomers to fleece them of their shirt.

Update 1:>! As of writing, I have opened a small short position on Bitcoin. Stop loss around 10k, estimated take profit around 8500. The reason is because the difficulty adjustment in the next 20 hours, even though is just -5% roughly is still significant. I direct you to look into all the difficulty adjustments in the last 2 years and you will know how rare it is. The ones I caught were all listed at the very top of the post. Since it is my first time shorting BTC, I take this as a learning opportunity so that I will have some experience to face the bigger difficulty adjustment in the first week of June. Analysis into execution, even in failure I am happy.!<
Update 2: The difficulty adjustment (DA) happened roughly 6 hours ago and the sell pressure from -6% DA did not seem to be affecting the market much. However, please take a look now at the estimation for the next DA.
On https://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/dashboard/ it is estimated to be -25%.
On https://fork.lol/pow/retarget estimated to be -18%.
On https://www.blockchain.com/charts/median-confirmation-time the median block time for the last day was 16.8min.
My original proposition that the true DA of the halving can only be realized in the next DA stands and that it will be considerable. The increased sell pressure from that DA will be highly significant. That is why there is a race by current miners to get the BTC price up high enough to attract more miners to not have the DA drop too much.
Update 3: Current BTC price at $9100 ( ~39 hours after DA). Then again BTC could have dropped from all sorts of reason. However the coincidence with the DA and with all the past DA is just too high to simply shrug off as irrelevant. Anyways past result cannot predict future ones, stay safe with the trading. Will no longer check on this post.
