I considered the flaw in cryptocurrency enabling the mass tracking/takedown of organized crime/Russian intel a modest side project for more than one reason. As we proceed, *why* will become more apparent.
Altcoin Marketcap vs $BTC:USD - their was an #ALTszn before $BTC capitulation in 2014. #btcusd
Altcoin Marketcap vs $BTC:Dominance -> Their is two main differences between 2014 and 2018:
#1 $BTC Dominance:
- never made a new high in dominance
- BTC gains from ALTs in it's big runs
- ALTs take from BTC after it tops
- BTC takes form ALTs after they top
#2 Margin Trading => the ability to short $BTC, $ETH, $XRP, $EOS, $LTC
- margin platforms take volume from ALTs on Spot
- their was no other way to make money except for ALTs - now you can short.
- shorting creates more selling pressure + buying pressure at reversal points
"It's the future of money because it's censorship resistant, deflationary and decentralized, so the da gov't can't print it! Sooo your savings are safe from inflation... OMG STORE OFF VAULEEE!!1 NOO REGULATIOOON"
But more importantly ... /1
Ya can take a boulder, paint some wheels on it, and call it "a futuristic automobile". Your newly invented "car", will be outside traffic laws, hence out of gov't control. GREAT! More power to you! ... /2
You've now become the weirdo pretending to drive on the interstate, while sitting on a painted boulder and screaming to everyone passing by: "Hey ignorant no-coiner! come and see the amazing future of unhindered driving!"
To understand where it all went downhill for you ... /3
1/5 Cause and effect the cornerstone of Wyckoff methodology. Time to get physical, Isaac Newton famously once said ‘For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction’. With that in mind, let's use it analyse the previous cycles on BTC…
2/5 Aprils accumulation (cause) and markup phase (effect). Accumulation lasted 13days and markup lasted an equal amount of time. NOTE: dropping volume on markup
3/5 Mays distribution (cause) and markup phase (effect). Distribution lasted 26days and markdown lasted 23days. :thonking
We are currently in the keynote. The speaker is talking about how popular Neo4j is
Keynote now telling us about all the new Neo4j features. Examples: location filter, including 3d. Auto cache reheating. I'm interested to know if auto cache reheating is working with query patterns or meant to replace them or what
@MollyMcKew@ifindkarma@goldengateblond On the other hand, if you're receiving #cryptocurrency payments, or babbling about your actions over Signal/WhatsApp while talking/texting the target of a warrant, are actively coordinating with, say, Cambridge Analytica, etc...
Well, you may have some issues.
@MollyMcKew@ifindkarma@goldengateblond Also remember that a #FARA cascade is just ordinary FARA in a small, tightly interconnected ecosystem overrun with FARA violations, when people w/nothing else to proffer realize they can proffer dozens-if-not-hundreds of violators. Often w/hard evidence.
@lauferlaw@ninaandtito@thespybrief@ericgarland@counterchekist 3. If you had already broken their secure communications, say, by expelling "official cover" spies who could act as secure go-betweens w/known credentials & breaking all means of encryption, etc, then it becomes very difficult to warn them about the jaws closing.
There's a gentleman who always speaks about #venturefunding in the #renewableenergy sector. Honestly, my eyes glaze over when he goes on about turbines and solar panels and the projects he's working on in Brazil. This is because venture funding is not my area of strength.
One day he told me his revenue projections and my eyes popped at the numbers.
1/ From a dataset of 4,003 executed and planned ICOs,
which raised a total of $12 billion in capital, nearly all since January 2017.
Average returns were 179% from the ICO price to the first day’s opening market price, over a holding period that averages just 16 days.
2/ Even after imputing returns of -100% to ICOs that don’t list their tokens within 60 days and adjusting for the returns of the asset class, the representative ICO investor earns 82%.
HODLING generated average buy-and hold additional returns of 48% in the first 30 trading days
And bear in mind, there are a *lot* of threads which amplify their ability to track down not just the laundered money, but criminals & intel assets, records of crimes, etc. threadreaderapp.com/thread/9573220…
For example, #botnets! Thousands, sometimes *millions* of computers linked together, letting you hack, launch DDoS attacks, dox and stalk, reap kompromat and demand blackmail ransoms or distribute bribes!
The trick is: What happens when you overlay all this data from different sources on top of the map created by #cryptocurrency exchanges the underworld thought were invisible & the transactions & holdings unearthed by #FinCEN.
