I have no idea why, but I felt a 10x needed a bit of recognition. I’m ecstatic if one of my “normal” stocks goes 10X, but it usually takes at least a decade.

Im staking some for a year on CoinMetro and for now Iíll just keep holding. Im mining it, so I might take some to cover the costs for the miners. I think this will be a solid long term play, could be top 10 play in the future and still early.

Had a bit of a violent climb today, and now dip so maybe we see some good consolidation entry opportunities.

I honestly didnít expect it to climb this fast, thatís why I went for the miners instead of loading more tokens upfront. I think people are just finding it now and see the potential; it hasnít even hit a tier 1 exchange yet.

I don't know if anyone else has $HNT or Helium mines but it's well over doubled in the past 48hrs.

I've had a Nebra miner on order since April... still waiting. My sister ordered a Bobcat 300 Miner a month after I ordered mine and has had hers for over two months now. She just cashed some out to cover her initial investment.

Myself and a co-worker each got 3 bobcat miners about 2 months ago. The output has been a little slower than we'd hoped but still decent. With this sudden run-up in price, I've already broken even on my initial costs.

Not sure why the sudden price run-up though? I think it might because of the recent software update. It slowed our miners down to almost zero for a couple days while the update was completed. One of my miners is still not mining or syncing at all.

I have the advantage that I can remember life without credit, its not that far back, 1960's for the UK, if you wanted to buy a car you paid cash, there were no car loans.

A world without Government control is a world where we all have very little stuff, where banks are little more than places to keep your savings, they dont lend money beause it is too risky, the economy shrinks massively due to the lack of purchasing power.
People forget this is why our Grandparents lived 3 or 4 to a 2 bedroom house, it was because they couldnt borrow enough to have a bigger house, go back to the 1930's and most people had to pay cash up front for a house, there were no mortgages for ordinary folks.

Much like our ability to dislike 'big pharma' because we have become so used to easy access to medicines that cure common diseases that used to kill us or how we are so used to living in a stable democracy we can assume we can break democracy and everything will be fine we also assume without Government control (and it's associated insurance) of the economy it will be fine and all the things we like about fiat Government backed currancy will still go on, they wont, no Government control no Government backing, no backing no lending.

What a well written response. Unfortunately, it has absolutely nothing to do with why allowing one party to wholly control a currency is a terrible idea and it wrong in almost every single aspect.



I can borrow against my crypto right now, and the defi market is in its infancy.


Do you think that government control over currency began sometime after your grandparents couldn't get a mortgage? Government control was the reason why mortgages were harder to get before, not the solution that solved it. Governments control their currency to control their economy. They use it to manage inflation and the borrowing power of the nation.

Government control of currency as we know it began only when the west gave up the Gold Standard, which was a gradual process throughout the 20th century and finally abandoned in 1971 by Nixon.

The reason you can borrow against crypto is purely because your bank knows it has Government insurance, without Government backing, either implicit or implied, you would'nt be able to raise a red cent, the underpinning of our whole system of debt which is used to control the economy is the government printing money, if the Government cant print money there is no Covid relief and the last 2 year would be a tale of desperate 1930's like poverty.

Can we at least agree that crypto is useless beyond being an investment for 99.9% of people today? Not sure why that is an insult. Gold is useless for 99.9% of people now too and it also has value as an investment.

Perhaps one day crypt becomes a useful tool, I have no idea if that is likely or not. But the people pumping it up to you on the internet as the future (not posters in this message board) are also the people who benefit the most when the value increases.

I don’t know if this is the right thread for this, but Ken Griffin buying the US constitution is the most hilarious trolling in a long time. He’s tailed against crypto, and he’s the CEO of Citadel. As if he wasn’t hated enough, he pays $43.2m to really twist that knife.

Texas, already home to the most vulnerable power grid in the U.S., is about to be hit by a surge in demand for electricity that's twice the size of Austin's. An army of cryptocurrency miners heading to the state for its cheap power and laissez-faire regulation is forecast to send demand soaring by as much as 5,000 megawatts over the next two years. The crypto migration to Texas has been building for months, but the sheer volume of power those miners will need -- two times more than the capital city of almost 1 million people consumed in all of 2020 -- is only now becoming clear.

That sounds good for the environment.
