Caption Contest: Bitcoinless

Take an exchange named for "Magic: The Gathering", add some "currency" which in its most tangible form is an electron fluctuating between 0 and 1, and you get this...

DoChen is down a virtual $900 or so on BTC education.  Expensive!

But maybe buying BTC should be like gold: BTFD!  (?)

The end of Mt. Gox is not the end of Bitcoin.  

I feel sorry for people who (may) have lost money, but keeping a lot of bitcoins at Mt. Gox was reckless.  It's like keeping millions of dollars at JPM, Citibank or any of those insolvent banks.  Just keeping small amounts for paying bills and stuff makes sense, but why expose your money to unncessary risks?  It's same with Mt. Gox.  It was an exchange.  Why keep bitoins there once your trade was done?

It's the end of bitcoin for all the people who weren't fast enough to get to MtGox's exit in time. I know no bitcoiner will admit to being one of those people who lost money, but a lot of people just got completely fucked. For you bitcoin pushers to ignore that fact in your continual pushing of this scam reveals a lot concerning your greed and lack of empathy.

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 23:01 | 4478662 Mine Is Bigger
Mine Is Bigger's picture

No.  One exchange failing does not make the end of an entire system.

I feel as much sympathy toward people who have lost their money in the Mt. Gox debacle as toward people who lost moeny in the stock market plunge after the Lehman Brothers collapse.  The way I see it, whether if it's bitcoins or stocks, "investing" your money always involves risks.  Losing money due to the Mt. Gox debacle does not make it more tragic.

I have $3k = 11BTC on Mt.Gox.  This was the max. I was willing to entrust to them at any one time.  Who knows, some of it may be recovered during liquidation.

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 00:08 | 4478908 Mine Is Bigger
Mine Is Bigger's picture

I really hope so.  

Admittedly, I only had less than 0.5 btc on Mt. Gox.  But I thought I had lost all my bitcoins when Tradehill went down in 2011?/2012?.  I learned from the mistake.  And I have since recovered more than 5,000% on what I put into Tradehil.  Bitcoin may still go to zero, but like I wrote above, it's a risk like anything else.  Being too afraid makes you live small.  And I think that's one of the worst ways to appreciate the gift of life.  But I guess it's just me.

I am an early bitcoin adopter but the very large chunk of bitcoin controlled by criminals is seriously putting me of the entire idea by now. 

The crazy bitcoin wealth concentration is another problem, the 0.1% look like socialists compared to the wealth concentration in bitcoin.

So here we are, with the other exchanges trading around 535 and change, essentially up 100 bucks from their lows. Amazing what happens when you let shitty exchanges FAIL eh? The two guys in the picture, well, I can't believe they trusted Gox after all of their problems since 2011, but there it is...

Hope you're doing well, I'm just watching the usual media frenzy over the whole thing - some are actually getting it right, which is surprising. Not many "bitcoin is dead" articles. Just a few pointing fingers and laughing, like Zerohedge, classy as they are.

Since the cancer has been excised from the trading "body", we're on track for recovering the price levels we left a while ago. I'm thinking mid-to-late March where it starts to swing back.

Honestly, you bring up a great point of letting the bad banks, exchanges, etc., fail.

I'm with you on the next leg up.

Any of us who have been watching Gox saw the writing on the wall. What I most notice is that the principal exchanges and developers moved swiftly to counter with high transparency and education - that is the beauty of the free-market. I added to my position around both sides of the low last night.

The world has been run on intangible systems for hundreds of years and will continue to be that way long after the dollar.  The fact that a blockhead layman never gets to work on these systems, doesn't understand them or never interacts with them does not change the facts.

"How many Bitcoins does fonestar own moron?"

The correct answer is none. Didn't you know? They are intangible. They don't exist. The real question is how are you going to convert them into something that does exist now that everyone knows bitcoin is a scam?

My over-under is 25, just enough for him to hope and pray for that 6-digit bitcoin worth and then he'll be rich, rich, rich. But it's clear as crystal that fonestar is a poser when it comes to assets.

Fonestar, man, you're falling apart.  This shit is really starting to get to you, isn't it?

I know I've been pretty harsh on you (mostly because you're a complete fraud), but jeez, I am starting to lose the desire to take another swing at you.  Looks like you've had enough already.

True believer bitcoiners only spend their bitcoins on piddly shit, usually accompanied by a selfie to post on their instagram/twitter. Otherwise, they only hoard them. There's also a really lively drug and child porn market.

Dunno, BitPay has 20,000 merchants signed up, clearing well over excess of $100 million in sales.  I'm too lazy to check on Coinbase and other Bitcoin payment processors.

"fonestar and most other Bitcoiners never used MtGox"

Technically correct but still a mendacious* attempt to understate that exchange's importance.

* have we come to expect more from that idiot?

"MtGox, once the world's largest Bitcoin exchange..."

"Trading on MtGox, what had been the largest Bitcoin exchange with over 50% of market share a year ago..."

Yep, "...most others..." indeed.

Not too long ago they accounted for 80% of all USD trades in Btc.  Now, it seems that no one ever had as much as 0.001 Btc move through there.  Yep, no one <cough cough>   Oh, and none of them ever lost a dime on Btc and they all bought in at $16.  BULLSHIT HEAPED UPON BULLSHIT

That's right fucktard.  Not one uBit of mine came from MtGox.  Never used them and don't care.

"That's right fucktard. Not one uBit of mine came from MtGox."

Strawman rebuttal fucktard.  Your original statement was that most Bitcoiners did not use MTGOX. 

MY reply addressed the "most" aspect of that statement.  

Your lame rebuttal?  More mendacity and diversion.  You can't even win a debate with yourself (see ZH Btc thread from earlier today.  No, scratch that: see MOST threads on Btc, and in this case my MOST is infinitely more accurate than yours...fucktard).

You will never get a bitcoiner true believer to admit that he ever lost any money. It's always some other sucker or loser who gets his/her coins stolen. Notice how they refer to the victims of a crime with such vile and angry terminology? It's almost as if they feel threatened....  *pondering*

The flipside to their argument is they haven't lost money because they're going to hold on to their bitcoin until it reaches 5 or 6-figures, which will happen oh-so soon.

I bought on Mt Gox back in the day when they used Dwolla.  I realized they were in trouble and withdrew 99% of my BTC from their site (phew).  I guess the 1% that's left is gone, oh well.  I bet BTC will live on even after this.  How many times has BTC died already, 5, 7, 10?

The funny thing is the mentally vacant posters here actually think Bitcoin is in trouble because they get their news about Bitcoin from Zerohedge.  Go over to Reddit, BTC Talks, anywhere else and this isn't even news.

What I find most amusing is that ZH is supposedly full of freedom-seeking libertarians, who go on and on about alternate currencies (meaning gold), until they actually see one (which isn't gold).

In reality, it's just convenience libertarianism. Just as most socialists I see around me are convenience socialists.

Excuse me, just because some libertarians reject bitcoin doesn't mean they are hypocrites.  I and many others reject bitcoin because of its MANY flaws.  Bitcoin is a service to be used with extreme caution.

They're not just hypocrits, they're fucking traitors.  Bitcoin does not need to be used with "caution", where you store your Bitcoin needs to be thought out with caution.
