The rise of CRYPTO - Bitcoin, LTC, Ether, Dash, Monero
 
New thread guys

Let's cover many of the NEW crypto coins.!!
Or at least the 50-150 most capitalized.

Maybe focus on NON-BITCOIN.

There's another thread on Bitcoin!!

So
Ideas...
Charts...
Info, advantages...
Exchanges

All are welcome, except the 300 430 500 people on my ignore list (long story).

I intend to help having a clean thread.
No crazy / bragging / insulting messages. Neither crybabies

Lets have good time and positive, creative posts. I accept both side of the coin but with justification!!

Here's my list of what I'm buying lately (end 2017):
Buying extra of these : BTCD, VTC, XVG, Decred, VIA, EMC2, VIA, PIVX. Synergy.
When Dash, LTC, MONA, GB correct - buy too.

Previously buy and hold DASH , LTC , DGD, Zcoin, BLK, SYS, XMR, AEON, ARK, CLOAK, ETC, LISK, POT.....
...check pages 53-54. March18.

Advice?? Decision is the hardest step.
Now the practical - you get a wallet first , on computer, phone.
Get few coins - BTC, LTC, Ether.
Buy from friends , LocalBitcoins...ATM machine.
Then register on exchange ....Research these on Reddit....
Bigger the better!!!
Exchange is also a wallet.

The best place to start research is Coinmarketcap.com

A little rocky day today
Bitcoin is $ 967 now.
Small coins like Zcash are mighty up...
Odd.
Any ideas??

{quote} Very odd The spike up before SEC decision (spike down).
Stop hunt free for all. So why...
...nose. So Bitcoins bit down. Excellent to buy. Hope it goes to 900 due to speculators unwinding. Or less
Trading bitcoin on margin, as everything else, is hard. But if it forces the price down then up etc....I am all for it!!!
As my previous post - go Chinese meddlers go!!
New stuff is the ETF rejection last week. So technically down...still.
Great job all sellers or manipulators or whatever
I'll buy 900, 800, 750... need to pull my old chart....

PS : old chart 7th January expired
New today's here.
With a bonus quiz

So that's my view. Ideas?

Thanks for joining.
The strength, wisdom etc of a community is in the members.


So did you convert bitcoins in alternatives or just starting cold?

Anyway, story of the day (I'm a little slow).

....... the wild child of bitcoin.....
Bitcoin Unlimited has about 11 percent market share of all the "nodes" in existence.
Nodes can run Blockchain Unlimited software which would signal their support for increasing the block size. If 50 percent of bitcoin miners adopted Bitcoin Unlimited, there would then be two major blockchains and a "fork" would be created made of Bitcoin Core, and Bitcoin Unlimited.
Both blockchains would continue to run as long as there are nodes running them. But there would then be essentially two different coins – Bitcoin and Bitcoin Unlimited.
And this is why bitcoin has seen sharp declines in price, while other cryptocurrencies like ether have gained support.
"Bitcoin traders may have wanted to offset some of their exposure should a fork occur or the scaling deadlock continue, and ether seems to be the most promising alternative. Bitcoin-ether volumes have surged....

So what's up with this?? Two bitcoins - unlikely. One will overcome.
Or even if they co-exist.....so what???
Ether seems to be doing fine with TWO ETHERS

So let's buy
1050$ now.

Thanks for starting this thread, I was thinking about starting one just like it. I'm invested in Ethereum Classic. Bought in at 1.50 its at 2.50 now, due to worries over Bitcoin stability is what I read. In any case smart contracts have great potential and I like the Classic people's response to the whole bad fork situation, so do many Chinese tech companies apparently. Hope it goes to 400$ some day. We shall see.

Excellent chance to buy!

Excellent chance to buy!
Maybe maybe
Step slowly though.
It dips under $980 again....

Scarecrows writing again
http://www.coindesk.com/circle-urges...rd-fork-looms/

Now, a hard fork will be a market shaker. Not sure about psychological implications....

I am buying ofcourse. Imagine there are other people that don't care 1000 or 500....
BUT
That's no reason for everyone and his granny to jump-start buying today and then come knocking on my door crying if bitcoin hits 470$.
Possibly

So buy/hold /sell with common sense.

I'm diversifying a little. As previous post 7.
Litecoin and Zcash seem attractive. And cheap now.... i don't like Ripple...
Ideas??

True. True.

I'm adding few other coins. Will think of Novacoin...

Any idea why Nexus jumped??

And what's the latest news on Ether Classic?

Darn!!
Bitcoin is $980 again...

If i need to point the culprit - it's the Bitcoin Unlimited maniacs. I don't get these folks. What's their problem???

Did some reading, some checking their silly sites.....
Here's what i take.:

They don't care about the stability of Bitcoin, nor the future.
They care about random numbers... and paying for coffee in bitcoin. A jobless, useless or coach-potato type of thinking.???

BU will fork. Bitcoin believers will keep 1MB limit. SegWit is at 28% only!! Why???
BU is 37% now....so damn soon we can see orphans, small forks, big FORK.

What will happen next is a guess.
I like this:
https://medium.com/@WhalePanda/how-b...3bb#.c6811grda

Why are BU folks pushing for it??? Jobless people buying coffee?? Nope.
They do it for THE MONEY. The BU scam money
Is BU paying more??
No.
So what money?
The money that are possible from shorting bitcoin now. They will sell bitcoin (doing), crash bitcoin, crash BU, buy bitcoin cheap.!!!!!!

Yep. figured it. A big theft!!!

I'm Buying altcoins now.
If bitcoin falls to 400$ I'll be buying.

Ideas??? comments?

casa2 Mar 24, 2017 10:35am | Post# 19

i will buy bitcoin @8xx or sell some ALT coins for BTC
