Bitcoin is great for censorship-resistant spending. Glad you've come around to the fact that Bitcoin does have value, though. BTW, it's not good for drug dealers since it leaves a very public paper trail.

I’d expect your gambling profits to be hit eventually....

If you don’t think drug dealer aren’t using crypto, would you like to buy a bridge?

You'll have to tell me what you mean by "hit".

Drug dealers are definitely using crypto, but this topic is specifically about Bitcoin. Drug dealers are much more likely to use Monero or other privacy-focused cryptos.

The vast majority of gamblers are losing players so have nothing to report. I can't say for sure but I think most pros/sharps are reporting their winnings. Remind me what any of that has to do with Bitcoin's value again?

We're discussing its inherent value as a transaction aid. I was asking what use it has, you've assured me in the 4 years it's nominal value has rocketed it is still only being used for rather dubious trades.

I was wrong though it does have uses.

I surprised your still working though; $250 - $7,500 should have seen you retired.

I have at 49 kinda semi-retired as I still get royalties on software. Although to be frank, I did at $16k so am down 2/3rds since then. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bimbo, you claim Bitcoin has no value. I'd wager the Venezuelans using it to survive would disagree. I've used Bitcoin around 10 times this week so I naturally find it to have significant value on a personal level as well.

What did you buy with Bitcoin this week ?
Venezuela

:lol: My favorite part of your snark is how confident you are in it and how you're wrong almost every time because you just make shit up and hope it sticks.

Skyrocketed value in 4 years? What a strange timeline to use given 2014 was a bear market and 2013 was not.

Only being used for rather dubious trades? Interesting moral judgment after you proudly explained that online gambling was legal in the UK. Of course that was just one use case. Feel free to google "Bitcoin Venezuela" for a more important demonstrated use case. Or even understand that its primary use, particularly in the West, right now is as a hedge against inflation and bad governance, basically gold 2.0.

As for $250-$7500, you are once again making this us as you go. I only became a BTC holder in 2017 when the online sportsbooks really started accepting it.

Wrong about what ? It being used for anything in the mainstream ? It's intrinsic value ?

I make no moral judgement but bit coin isn't going to be a payment method used, it isn't going to change the world and eventually it will collapse.

As of Venuzaula , that's another reason it's adoption in the west will be controlled not made more widespread.

Good for you on gambling , but don't equate that with the actual real world,of commerce we were promised over the now years.

I can not follow your logic

This is a potential payment method

Previously people were paid in cash, then check then direct deposit

Credit cards were not always used and some places still do not accept them

Other places accept payment in Apple Pay, venmo, etc

This may or may not be more widely accepted in the future

But to dismiss it because you do not think gaming is not real commerce is strange

I do but probably not as often or as much as I should. Roughly 15% of my portfolio is in crypto which I'm aware is a lot. I earn software royalties and will (all being well) for the rest of my life ao rely on that and some coding to bring in money whilst I think of software to develop. I can code practically anything consumer facing.

Would it be in the East where the first affects of a crypto crash are felt? Do you read the relevant forums coming out of Japan, China and South Korea? I assume one would need the language skills for that.

You should never buy in a down-trend, and the crypto market is in a big downtrend at the moment.

There is a chance that Bitcoin will fade all the way back down to the $3000 level, dragging all the other
cryptos with it.

There is so much spoofing and deception in this market it makes the Brexit Thread seem almost gentlemanly.....
