    I've only been liquidated once on KuCoin and they just took my initial buy-in, nothing further. Also on there the liquidation point varies by how large you are leveraged. For example at 5x leverage, the it liquidated at 20% loss

    But then you just destroy your account and they can’t get the balance? Super unethical but I’ve never used leverage

    my favorite part of crypto is finding out something you dismissed as a shitcoin is now worth $30 each and scrambling to find your private keys

    Every chain having issues this week. Eth really wacky gas movements for half a minute that causes lots of failed transactions. Solana similar type of issues as well

    Where are you getting these updates so quickly?

    Have you changed your holdings at all? I moved to 60 ETH 35BTC 5LINK . If you move to BTC now I'm going to be depressed.

    I should clarify, as an investment vehicle it’s great, but actually using it is such a pain compared to btc or LTC (last time I did an LTC transaction was like 5 years ago so maybe that has changed)

    LTC is cheaper and faster as far as I'm aware (says the least knowledgable guy in this thread).

    i use them every day so i know if things are messed up.

    I haven't changed holdings just took a lot of profit earlier this morning on alts and eth. been a killer week for me so paying myself. targeting 2900ish eth before another rug pull. so will sell some more up there. if we don't make it all good, plenty of cash to buy a dip.

    Be careful though you can get nailed on some of these exchanges trying to convert LTC for that reason

    It didn't register with me at first that these were percentages and my first two thoughts were (1) Nice; and (2) This dude has $1.75mm+ and is worried about holding 5 LINK?

    The stupid random seven cent transaction wont go away and I can't unwrap until it does. I've tried paying to have the process sped up multiple times and no dice.

    Is this on MetaMask? Hit Settings > Advanced > Reset Account and also clear out the transaction on whatever website you're on. Then try again.

    I'm trying to trade wEth for USDC. Finally got the transaction approved, the Eth gas fee was successfully paid. But I still have wEth and do not have USDC. Give me coal mines and BTC transactions ASAP

    Am I remembering correctly when I remember "projection charts" being posted in 2018 showing bitcoin/crypto skyrocketing again a few years out, like 2020-2021? and like, well, damn. here we are.

    I remember listening to TWiT (this week in tech) in like 2014 and they had a crazy guest on saying btc could hit 100k and it was pretty out there tinfoil hat type conversation.

    UPDATE:

    Ended up having to buy more Eth than I really wanted to. (Eth is garbage for transactions) but I am now the proud owner of my first stable coin. wEth can get fucked.

    In early august I spent a few hours looking at BTC price change over the morning hours PST Monday -Friday, I looked at 100 or so days and I found that there was usually about a 1% increase around 7-8 AM which I theorized was in line with boomers "auto buy" functions in coinbase or whatever but It was super tedious and it didnt seem strong enough to be actionable and a robot could probably give you better information in about 5 seconds. Nonetheless was interesting to look at.

    I was backing up my co-founder on a software demo today and in the middle of riffing about a feature when my ears were assaulted by a bunch of maniacs loudly swearing non-stop. I had to awkwardly stop speaking for nearly a full minute before I figured out I had Telegram open to the Lonelyfans BSC token chat and they had started a voice session over some drama. Luckily, I was wearing headphones

    I cashed out of pretty much all ALTs yesterday. I've mostly regretted that decision, but I did need to consolidate to apply focus to fewer things. You guys know I like HNT fundamentally for a few reasons. I can't stop looking at its chart. It's been kind of bouncing around the same channel since January with some light meme-ing if BTC was shitting its pants or going off. It sold off at its ATH earlier this month, which was outside of said channel. Makes sense. I've doubled up on this once from $8.00 to $16.00. Does it not look like it's ready to do it again?

    I really don't know. I sold almost everything to protect my portfolio when things were looking bad. HNT happened to be at 16.19 at the time. This setup reminds me of VET from sub .10, but if BTC goes down; it's a bad entry right now. I may jump back in with a tight stop loss. Also not a huge fan of diving in on weekends while drinking

    Later in the announcement, MicroStrategy admits it may consider selling at least a portion of its significant BTC holdings for-profit.

    He has to at some point, his board would literally remove him for ignoring his fiduciary duty. He can take the proceeds and reinvent the company. Micro strategy itself is an outdated business intelligence software file that’s slowly dying.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if he turns them into a mining firm or something related to crypto
