Even in the last year or so, many people have been tortured and robbed for far less than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.
If a gang knows you have $5,000 or $10,000 in cash hidden in your house, they have a good reason to rob you. A few hours work for a few grand is a good deal even in developed countries, and the process of robbing someone of cash and Bitcoin is almost exactly the same and almost as untraceable as well. Makes sense to just never talk about it.

Lightning hubs are giant signs saying, "I at least have the amount of legacy bitcoin needed to open my channel. Please don't come to my house and rob me."

I'd rather keep my balance hidden behind pseudoanonymous addresses that I can control who knows which are mine. And then there's the money transmitter issues and centralization.

Why you should vote for Trump unless you live in a safe state
  1. Both Biden and Trump are protectionists, so Biden isn't the lesser evil even in this regard.
  2. Yes, immigration is great, but socialism is not. You can't have free immigration and welfare and the Democrats are eager to get more voters by flooding the borders (immigrants predominantly vote Democrat) and giving them free stuff. Giving the current trend of conservstives dying out and the youth being more liberal and the GOP getting into the White House only because of luckand the electoral college, it's clear the Democrats will soon dominate politics for a couple of terms and proably get some trifectas. The more poor people vulnerable to welfare the US gets in, the more welfare recipients there will be in the future.
  3. There's no real tradeoff in favor of the Democratic nominees except for legalization of marijuana (the both nominees have a history if shifting positions and especially Harris used to be vocally against losenning of the drug laws, so it's hard to say whether they can be trusted).
  4. There's fewer Republicans than Democrats, so voting for a gridlock (the only electable LP party nominee) is for the most part voting for Trump and the GOP.
  5. Biden may die during his first term. Kamala could probably take over either as an acting pres or be elected as a 2024 Democratic pres candidate if Biden won't run for reection. She scored as the 3rd most socialist primary candiate behind Sanders and Warren and has a reputation of a pretty authoritarian (authoritarian left is the opposite of libertarianism) and dishonest and corrupt (just like Biden, Trump is a liar too, but at least didn't seem to go back on his pre-election promises much) person connected to the establishment and parasiting oligarchs using the state to destroy competition.
  6. JoJo and Supreme's VP and nearly every other Libertarian running for public office are inelectable. They can't get those 5% they hope for and that would grant them looted tax money making them robbers just like the rest. She has a liberal neolibertarian and wants to open border on day one without destroying the welfare state first. The LP of the US has since the death of Childs and Rothbard has moved to the left and today they are nothing but delusional inherent statists who desire to become the leaders of the murderous state mafia. The platform additionally started to endorse unconditional free migration and became pro-choice and anti-death penalty, which aren't unanimous libertarian positions.
They waste millions of dollars for campaigning for unelectable candidates and thus diverting libertarian donations from think tanks such as CATO and Mises. Our future isn't politics, it's the Bitcoin and changing hearts and minds. Libertarian funds should be focused 100% on spreading libertarian ideas because they make a difference. Getting 2% in a FTP voting does not. Libertarian parties (which is an oxymoron) of the US, UK, Canada or Russia aren't contributing to liberty, they are destroying it by ecouraging people to waste votes instead to vote for a party that wants to enslave, murder and rob us less. As we who understand economy very well know, if our comparative advantage lies in changing hearts and minds because we've converted many people to our cause as opposed to occasionally winning in only regional elections after pouring of tens of millions into the LP over the past 50 years.
Only a fool would think the state would voluntarily let us take it over or destroy it. If a libertarian party in France or Germany started to threaten the establishment parties, they would be immediately labeled radicals abd extremists (after all, we entertain ideas that are considered radical in today's corrupt leftist world) and banned. The only country where it would the Constitution probably prohibit is the US and in the US majority system would the change from above be impossible until the majority of the population would be libertarian and at that point they could surely secede from the state or create their own minarchist states, so winning the elections would be useless anyway.
Furthermore, if the establishment sees a certain electorate doesn't care about them at all and will never vote for them, they start to care about them even less. If we weren't so stubborn, it is possible there would be a former VP of president Ron Paul debating Biden instead of a childish narcissist protectionist discrediting the US in front of the whole world. And the worst part is that he doesn't seem to be the greater of two evils, unfortunately it's contrary. It's better voting for him and for a gridlock than for the riots. The LP and libertarian organisation should try to endorse some people regarded as less bad for liberty (thus greatly raising attention to us) under condition they improve or don't become more tyrannical and stop the endorsement whrn they violate the terms.
People like Jorgensen aren't aware of it, but in reality they are a red herring harming the libertatian cause rather than contributing to it and such inelectable parties should be discouraged and fought bevause there is an empirical as well as logical evidence that voting for them only wastes capitalists votes and therefore makes the crimes commited against us only more, not less severe.

Prepping for a Financial crisis / hyperinflation.

So what can we do about it? Any ideas are welcome.
It has a lot of "what if's"... It depends how tax and law play out with it.Historically speaking:
  1. -I stock bulk diesel for my cars while following historical averages to buy cheap.
  2. -Rotating food stock
  3. -Extra maintenance items, including the big things like a roof on your home if its coming time. Not joking I have a spare water heater and backup heating options, along with minor parts and filters to fix them. Same with cars and engines, (spark plugs, filters (all different filters), oil, cheap sensors that usually go bad and are only 4-10$ each, 1-2 extra alternator per vehicle, belts, mowing belts, bearings, grease, ... and I've literally had to use everything on that list and reorder.)
  1. -Security, Locks, Alarms, Cameras, people steal.
  2. A deep freezer for instance can stock food you use and buy on sale.
  3. Solar energy and solar heating supplements energy you use anyways
  4. Rainwater can be collected and used rather than buying from a source.
  5. A cooking gadget vs eating out.
  6. Tools and learning to fix things vs hire.
  7. House insulation.-Better insulative windows, and sealing.
  8. Geo-Thermal
  9. Gardening
  10. Bidet on toilet (lol serious though...)
  11. Backup power
  12. Your education can be a huge one, not just for prepping but also in your work.
  13. Things that prevent rot, fire, flood / humidity, or failure. Humidity is a silent killer to many preps. (water sump pumps, dehumidifiers, leak prevention, fire extinguishers / sprinklers, )

Gulden [NLG] - Constant development - In wallet Staking/Mining/Dex

Official Website / Official Slack
About Gulden:
How to setup a Witness (Staking) Gulden was founded in April 2014 based on the Litecoin codebase. In 2015 the Litecoin codebase is abandoned and Gulden switched to the Bitcoin codebase. After years of development it can be said that Gulden now has its own codebase. Gulden started with a 10% premine that was spent entirely on development. The current developments are now paid by part of the mining reward. The direction of the developments are determined by the Gulden advisory board (GAB). The GAB consists of 9 members and is elected each year from the members of the community. Anyone can stand for election. Voting for candidates is recorded and done through the Gulden blockchain. Gulden would like to become a generally accepted means of payment. To this end, the development is aimed at making the wallets as user-friendly as possible.
What makes Gulden unique:
- PoW2 - Proof of work + Witness/Staking - SegSig (Segregated Signature) - SIGMA (Semi Iterated Global Memory Argon) - Linking (Control your mobile wallet from your desktop wallet) - Wallet accounts - Unity (Unified codebase) - Delta (Difficulty Algorithm) - Sonic (Fast Sync)
Features of Gulden explained:
PoW2: Gulden does not use a standard PoW consensus model, but the in-house developed PoW2 model. This is a combination of PoW and Witness. Miners control the transactions and the Witness controls the miners. In order to get the same chance of success for a double spend as for the single transaction approval systems it is therefore necessary not to control >50% of the mining power or >50% of the number of coins in witness accounts but to own more than 71% of both systems. (0.71 * 0.71 = 0.5 so 50% chance).
Because many Gulden owners have their Gulden fixed in witness, it is difficult to get a 71% majority in witness. There are now more than 100 million Gulden in witness. In order to get a 71% majority, an attacker has to secure an additional 220 million Gulden in witness. Apart from the fact that this is almost impossible, the price of the Gulden would go up sky high if so much Gulden had to be bought by the attacker. And because the attacker has to lock the Gulden, it looks like a bank robber who is going to rob his own bank. So such an attack is theoretically possible, but not possible in reality.
Anyone can become a witness: by locking an amount of Gulden in a Witness account in the desktop wallet for a certain amount of time. Depending on the weighting of the witness account (chosen duration and amount in the account) the witness earns rewards. The advantage of this system is that the Gulden blockchain can withstand 51% attacks without relying heavily on energy-guzzling PoW miners or vulnerable standard PoS systems. Transactions can be safely accepted after one confirmation instead of the standard 3-6 confirmations.

  1. PoW2 Whitepaper simply explained PoW² explored — A post-launch look at some of the security implications How to setup a Witness
SIGMA: Since October 17, 2019, the Gulden team has implemented the Sigma algorithm and since then it is possible to mine Gulden solo without additional equipment. The algorithm is asic resistant and can be done on a normal desktop computer using it’s CPU. One can simply use this CPU mining algorithm by creating a mining account in the desktop wallet and start mining Gulden.
SegSig - Segregated Signature - Detailed article still to be published but was implemented with PoW2. Advantages of Segregated Signature: 1. 58% space saving on all transactions. More then twice the bitcoin SegWit implementation. 2. 58% increased transaction throughput. No block size or frequency changes needed. 3. Overhaul to the transaction script system which allowed us to implement PoW² and SegSig as clean as possible along with other benefits.

Please take your time and read the technicals on this coin as its truly phenomenal and seriously under valorised and recognised. Barely any effort has been made to market its potential but you can judge yourself. Read the PoW2 Whitepaper or the short version PoW2 simply explained

Can I Pay My Bill?

It's easier to rob a bank than to contact comcast customer support. Your artificial intelligent answering machine is the dumbest of all.
Now let's get back to business.
Dear Comcast, If I am not Donald Trump and I don't use Twitter, How can I contact customer support to pay my freaking bill? Your dumb answering machine holds me a hostage and unless I provide a phone number or an account ID, it won't connect me with a human being to solve my account problems.
I just want to pay my bill and continue my service. It asks me for a phone number. I provide my phone number and it says "sorry, that does not match our records".... email address... does not match our records... address and zip code.... again, customer not found... provide my name - again, not found.
The funny thing is that I am an existing customer. I have (or had until disconnected) Xfinity internet with that big ass wifi router of yours. So, how the hell in the World I should pay my bill?
How do I create an online account when I can't call, can't log in, can't create Xfinity ID.... Nothing. And I am not a new customer, I ALREADY HAVE XFINITY INTERNET. Your tech (a nice guy by the way) came over and installed my internet. I paid whatever the fees were and he activated after receiving some kind of confirmation from his boss. Then, on his laptop, he verified that my account has my correct name, phone number, email, address, made sure I am online, and then told me to create my online ID on Xfinity's website.... It's easy, he said. Just put your phone number and it will find your account, then follow the requirement on the screen. OK, I said, I'll do it tonight, which I have been trying to do since. Now, Comcast canceled my internet due to non-payment.
I want to pay, I want to pay for the whole freaking year, I want to pay till I am dead, so you can never cut my internet... except, how do I do that? How do I pay? Where? Who do I contact?
HOW SHOULD I CREATE MY ACCOUNT? HOW SHOULD I SPEAK TO A HUMAN BEING CUSTOMER SUPPORT WITHOUT BEING HELD AS A HOSTAGE BY YOUR AI?
Can someone PLEASE contact me? I demand human customer support. Someone who speaks normal English.
I hope Elon Musk builds his Starlink so I can finally switch and forget comcast forever. I can't wait for it. But, until then, Comcast, please, call me, I want to pay you.. I want you to take my money. Take as much as you need... or want.... empty my accounts... take my 401K's... take my house. it's fully paid off... take my wife too and my children. Just please, let me have an online account... please...
I can pay you any way you want. Writing a check? no problem... oh no wait, we are in the 21st century and I don't have checks. OK debit card? Credit Card? I can pay by PayPal... I can Venmo or Zelle you money. Bitcoin... I can pay you with Bitcoin. I can drop hard cash in $100 bills... or $20 bills... anyway you prefer. Just please, let me speak to a real human being customer support... please.

(That's sarcasm if you didn't get it)

A few bitcoin-questions which keep me busy

Hi all,
I have a few basic questions about bitcoin.
Like most of you here, I‘m following the crypto-topic for a few years now. I never bought or owned any crypto, because it just too expensive (Bitcoin in particular). Recently I decided to invest some of my savings in 0.5 BTC (bought it for around 4150€). I got excited and started reading and researching even more about bitcoin. One of the basic ideas, which is clearly very popular, is the idea of decentralization. Another one is the cashless digital currency of the world etc. Eventually providing financial possibilities for people without any access to banks.
In my short experience from buying to storing the „coin“ a few thoughts and questions emerged, which I‘d like to share with you and hear your opinion on them.
1.The first thing, which was the most obvious: you still need a bank account, in order to buy any amount of bitcoin. All of the exchanges require you to connect a bank account, in order to buy crypto. Or you can of course exchange crypto for crypto, but then you need to buy the crypto in first place anyway.
How is this going to solve the problem of decentralizing? You still need a bank, which provides the original buyer with a bank account, right?
In other words, how should one imagine a world with bitcoins only? If they are limited only to 21 million, the rich-poor inequality could become even bigger and worse than now, because (theoretically) only one single person could own all of it.
2.Storing bitcoin.I have to admit, storing bitcoin is relatively easy, but one wrong move could make all your crypto disappear.
After I bought the 0.5 BTC, I wanted to store it securely. I read too many stories of people’s wallets being hacked and loosing all their crypto etc. So I decided to buy hardware wallet (Trezor One). The experience was not good. First, I pay transaction fees to move the asset from MY OWN software wallet to MY OWN hardware wallet. This is basically paying transaction fees to move your money from A to B, whereas A and B are in the same room. That worked OK, but then I decided to have some ETH as well. Transferred the ETH to Trezor and boom, my ETH was not visible. The amount of € was correct (Bitcoin + Eth), but only the Bitcoin was visible. Nevertheless I managed go see my ETH through Exodus wallet and transferred it back to my software-wallet, because I felt nervous not seeing it in the Trezor Wallet itself. More transaction fees.
Then I tried backing-up the hardware wallet. Everytime the application said „Application error: Interruption“ or something like that. I had to google to find out that probably the usb-cable was shitty. I bought Ledger Nano X and it‘s much better.
Long story short.
My thoughts on this: storing crypto securely is relatively simple, but I don’t see how this could be adopted by the whole world. Although my parents are good with IT stuff in general, I don’t know if securing bitcoins will be their thing. One wrong move and your coins could be gone. Additionally, a crypto wallet costs money and you can never be sure if the software-company behind it will exist forever to support wallet updates etc.
So, I have to admit: adoption of money is not that different. Having cash in your pocket is risky, because you can get robbed. Your bank account could be hacked. For people who get paid in checks - you have to take the check, go to the bank, stay in line and wait for your money. Takes time.
But there are laws, which protect you from losing money. In most european countries, you are insured for up to 100k EUR per bank account. So if your money gets stolen, the bank is obliged to give it back to you. And for stolen money in cash, there is police etc.
And yes, one more thing about the transaction fees: there are no transaction fees when I pay my rent for example.
3.Volatility:
today bitcoin is around 8600€, tomorrow it could be 400€, the day after tomorrow 20000k. If it is supposed to be a currency, it should be more stable, right? How can you be sure that you have the same amount of „money“ tomorrow?
4.Buying „bigger“ things.
Imagine buying a house. It costs 100 BTC. You meet the seller and then what? You transfer him 100 BTC, then wait for like 3 days until the full transaction is being processed and then? He receives the bitcoins and handles you the keys to the house. Is it yours? How can you prove that it‘s yours?
In this type of bigger deals, I don‘t mind when there is a third party like a lawyer or a bank, which approves the contract.
What are your thoughts on this?
5.I see quite often that bitcoin is being compared to gold.
And I agree, you can‘t do many things with gold either. You can‘t really „pay“ in gold in the supermarket or buy a house. Storing gold is even more difficult. Neither gold nor bitcoin solve any real problem, except that you could eventually make jewelry and nice churches from gold, which is - from point of view - not important.
And still here comes my general question at the end of this post:
What kind of problem does bitcoin solve? Why is there so much hype around it? Am I overseeing something? Maybe it‘s not about being a currency, but something else/something more?
I want to understand why or if it‘s worth holding my 0.5 BTC or rather sell it now, when the price is a bit higher and invest the revenue somewhere else.
Thanks for the comments and the discussion!
EDIT: I don't want to sparkle any battle between "bitcoin is good" and "bitcoin is bad". I just want to help myself and other readers understand the topic better and answer these basic and very fundamental questions.

Is Bitcoin the Solution to America's Problems?#OptOut

I have taken excerpts from the following link which are relevant to why bitcoin might be the solution to many of America's problems.
TLDR: We, the 99%, do not fairly share in the fruits of our labor, yet we are consistently forced to bear the burden of corporate and institutional shortsightedness, greed, gambling and failure. https://www.reddit.com/OpenLetters/comments/h9ofta/dear_99/
A light has been shined on the American police problem, but it is just the tip of the iceberg in what are numerous deeply rooted issues concealing entrenched, multifaceted systems of oppression meant to indiscriminately maintain the status quo over the 99% regardless of skin pigment.
-End the Fed: The Federal Reserve (The Fed) is America’s central bank with questionable oversight whose name is derived to invoke and imply authority of the federal government and therefore (at least nominally) accountability to, the American people. On paper, the Fed answers to congress, which in a perfect world would be a representative body, of the people and for the people, this is not the case. Educate yourselves on the Federal Reserve and its role in previous greed driven economic catastrophes. End the Fed, stop feeding the oligarchs and the connected cronies they implant into the systems, corporations, and banks which directly benefit from the money these crooks print out of thin air at our expense. Financial institutions need more oversight, and we should be searching for solutions or alternatives. Perhaps we should gradually #OptOut.
-Banks and Lending Practices: The US banking system operates on a fractional reserve system. This requires banks to keep only a tiny fraction of the money they lend on reserve, the rest of which they may loan out and charge interest on. Banks literally make money using our money, and still assess overdraft fees and monthly maintenance fees from those who barely have enough to get by as it is (and who cannot afford maintaining minimum balances as they do not possess regular income, or are busy living paycheck to paycheck). These fees might as well be called “poor taxes” as it appears being poor is expensive. We should all vote with our money by removing it from these banks and only doing business with less greedy fee free credit unions. Historically, the banking/financing sector has been racist and biased in their distribution of opportunity to the public favoring the rich living in better neighborhoods. This is a problem, how can historically disadvantaged people for example, raise capital to start businesses, obtain reliable transportation, buy houses in better neighborhood so that their children might benefit from better education all when they are caught in the cycle of poverty (or worse yet, also affected by blatant or backdoor racism)? Socioeconomically induced inequitable access to opportunity is a massive problem in the United States and this affects the 99%, including the middle class. The richer the family you are born into, the higher the quality of education you are likely to receive, the more connected you are, the more access to resources and support for stepping into the world “on the right foot”, obtaining stable income, building/maintaining a higher credit scores which translates to lower interest rates, and in general, better opportunities. From a purely business standpoint, it is then quite understandable that banks would want to obtain the business of these less risky, rich desirables while treating others as low priority clientele (likely with algorithms to “justify” doing so). The terms of credit lines and loans extended to those from disadvantaged communities should be examined (e.g. payday loan offices that plague these communities – or credit cards with outrageous APRs awarded to those from these communities lacking the education to use them wisely leading to the destruction of their credit scores and therefore justification from banks to deny opportunity to these individuals later in life thereby inhibiting class mobility). Lenders and banks have gamed and weaponized their monetary instruments (e.g. predatory credit cards and loans) against disadvantaged communities by enabling the less financially literate to dig themselves into financial holes from which they may never recover; this is a herding mechanism which relegates and confines the disadvantaged to certain neighborhoods (further perpetuating the cycle of poverty).
Oligarchs, their cronies, financial institutions and the corporations they control have perverted the once great concept of the “invisible hand”. They intervene in our democratic processes to further self-interests at the expense of the public benefit. We are living in a system that gives us the illusion – or semblance, if we are lucky – of justice, opportunity, class mobility, and the “American Dream”. While some of these are achievable through mountainous effort, the struggle in achieving these are unbalanced depending on factors that should be inconsequential such as skin pigment, zip code of birth, and social connectedness. These coercive instruments of oppression propagated throughout our engineered society have kept us busy keeping each other compliant, fighting amongst ourselves over scraps – and promotions, grinding for our next paycheck and inhibiting our drive for vindicated civil disobedience – lest we go hungry or homeless, and have placated us with bread and games to shroud the connected few who rob us through the camouflaged systems they proliferate. We are attempting to climb an ever-growing cliff where the rich have reached the top, raised the ladders, and continue pouring grease along the slopes. Main street is not wall street. Greed has severed the relationship between market performance, our country’s production, and the average American’s plight. The rich get richer by, among other things, their ease of access to newly printed money (debt) before the wider population increasing their purchasing power before inflation takes hold, allowing them to purchase and accumulate stocks and assets at a discount (Cantillon Effect) – further increasing their political influence which they use to further self-serving interests. This has resulted in a financial and social bubble that is bound to burst violently without intervention.
We, the 99%, do not fairly share in the fruits of our labor, yet we are consistently forced to bear the burden of corporate and institutional shortsightedness, greed, gambling and failure.
The 1% have their perverted hands wrapped around our necks. We can’t breathe.

What's wrong with disclosing your holdings?

I've noticed a lot of times people being advised not to disclose their holdings on here, as if they will someday definitely be tortured into giving up their crypto. Aside from being a bit crass what is actually wrong with discussing your BTC holding on reddit? How could a person be traced through their reddit posts, what realistically are the chances of this happening and why is holding large value in BTC any worse than a person that clearly flaunts their wealth in fiat and possessions?
Sometimes a poster needs to mention amounts in order to put the message into context. Remember theft, torture, kidnap, blackmail is absolutely fucking illegal in all countries even if BTC is involved.

My first bad trip happened over one year ago - my trip report and some lessons I took from it

Hey everyone! On April 2019, I had my first bad trip. It was, without a doubt, the scariest and most profound experience of my life. I think about it to this day, and for a while I was afraid it would traumatize me enough to the point in which I would never be able to enjoy LSD again. I'm sure many of you have gone through something like this, and for those who happen to be having second thoughts about ever tripping again, here are the lessons I learned from my ordeal.

I have tripped a couple of times previous to this bad trip, I'd say maybe 10 times. I've tripped alone and with friends, I've tripped at home and hiking on an island. I thought I was an experienced tripper but in reality, I probably had never even gone past 150ug. On the day of my bad trip, I was by myself (my parents were asleep, but I never really cared about this), stressed out, insecure about many aspects of my life, and felt like taking LSD to "cheer me up". Not a great idea to take acid with this mindset, but I would probably be okay taking my usual doses. My plug would only sell me a minimum of four tabs, so I bought four. I got home and took all of them at once, I don't think I even thought about this being a terrible idea. I'm pretty sure I have taken up to three tabs before but they were highly under-dosed, so I guess this lead me to believing I could handle this trip. I had never taken these tabs before, and they were VERY strong, around 150ug each. So I went from never going past 150ug to taking about 600ug with a bad mindset. So we have lesson number one: respect the substance. This trip wouldn't be enjoyable even if I was living the best time of my life.

I have very vivid memories of this trip, but trying to put it into words is very challenging. For the first hour or so I relaxed watching That 70s Show on Netflix. It was pretty funny for the first hour or so, but it gradually became darker. The characters/actors seemed mean and somewhat evil. I remember looking at the show's cover photo on Netflix and the faces were turning demoniac, I could hear a sound that was very frightening. At this point I first realised I took too much, and that's a mental recipe for disaster. I had never had a bad trip before, didn't even know what a thought loop was, so it was very unlikely I would be able to turn this situation around. From this point on it's hard to tell when did each event happen. I remember opening WhatsApp to get help from a friend which I had tripped with many times before, but I couldn't get past "Hey" and a selfie of my dumbass face. I felt like I could communicate with him mentally, I was convinced he was tripping as well and we were somehow sharing this experience. I guess our second lesson would have to be have a trip sitter when taking unfamiliar doses, or else you might end up relying on this telekinesis trip sitter delusion lol.

I remember being convinced that the tabs I took weren't really LSD, that my mind was sabotaged and someone else was in control of my mind, or at least being able to see what I was seeing. Everyone was in on it - my friend who I attempted to talk to, my dealer, and this fictitious laboratory that I believed had fabricated this substance that I had taken. I remember seeing this colorful symbol that I believed was the lab's logo or something. I tried searching for "bad acid" instead of "bad trip", I was clearly avoiding taking the blame for my mistake and blamed the substance itself. At this point I couldn't really use my laptop, the screen would occasionally become all black as if it shut down, and when this happened I felt like I shut down too. I remember seeing a face-like figure (I think it was green) surrounded by black emptiness, it started dissolving and I could feel it with my own face, I absolutely felt like I was dying. The more I thought about things, certain words (in portuguese, I'm Brazilian) would pop up in front of me. When I felt like I was dying, I could see/sense the word "death" or "dead". Whenever I felt something terrible would happen, like death or that I was about to be attacked/robbed, some bad words would show up. On the short moments in which I realised none of this would happen, positive words would show up and I could see more uplifting things. These positive thoughts were very, VERY rare though.

As I mentioned, at one point I felt like I was about to be robbed. This turned out to be the worst part of the trip, as I was absolutely convinced someone was about to break into my house. My door was closed but I ended up opening it, I can't recall this at all. All I can remember is this man standing in front of my room, it seemed like he was naked holding a rifle covering his crotch. Pretty comical but very, very scary stuff. He wanted something from me (I remember being very protective of my Bitcoins) and there were more people like him waiting outside. At this point I lost total control of myself and what was going on. I busted into my parents' bedroom and woke them up screaming "YOU HAVE TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON!". My parents couldn't quite understand what was going on at first, there was clearly no one around and I was trying to show them something on my phone - there was nothing. They immediately realised I was on drugs and tried to calm me down. I remember feeling like I couldn't trust them at all - they were also in on it. My ego was totally shattered, all of my dreams and ambitions were suddenly gone and I would never be the same again. I cried a lot. They took me to the hospital and as soon as I got there I stopped hallucinating. I know a lot of you won't agree with this, but I am very glad my parents were sleeping next door. I didn't have a trip sitter, but I can only imagine what would happen if I didn't have my parents to go to in this desperate moment. My third lesson would be when without a trip sitter, get help from anyone when needed. You will feel like you're going to have a lot of explaining to do, and you will. But it is better than feeling alone. Obviously, don't seek help from strangers who might take advantage from you.

On the next day, I was totally miserable and felt like I was forever scarred by this trip. I didn't think I would ever be able to have a good experience with LSD again. Over one year later, I highly value this experience. It was terrible, yes, but it provided me with some insights into what my values were at that time. The main idea I took regarded how obsessed I was with status, money and success. I always knew these were the things I aimed for in life, and this trip showed me exactly how toxic these values are. I am still in the process of reevaluating my priorities in life, but this trip was my wake up call. An extreme one, but a necessary one. I was very afraid of losing my money and belongings from these fake attackers/robbers; even more afraid than losing my life or my parents' life. If these aren't straight up twisted priorities, I really don't know anything. I'm glad LSD showed me this fucked up part of my mind, and I hope to become a better man every day. Lesson number four is to learn from these bad trips. They are too intense for you not to take anything from them.

I gradually came back to taking LSD after this experience, at first pretty nervous right before each trip. I took small doses and they were good. I am gradually increasing my doses and took 150ug last week, had a really great time. I had an uncomfortable trip from ~200ug though, I guess I can't really handle these kinds of doses and I am okay with that. I know this is a long post, but keep in mind I am talking about the most profound experience of my life as I stated in the introduction. I'm really glad I got over this and finally got around to sharing this with you all! Really hope someone can find this helpful.

The truth is people believing in big blocks were the majority of the original Bitcoin BTC community.

The truth is people believing in big blocks were the majority of the original Bitcoin BTC community. Polls on bitcointalk.org showed support for big block plans like BIP101 at over 80%. However, not everyone was the same in terms of passion and purity for the original big-block vision outlined by Satoshi. So when the network split between different big-block and small-block ideologies happened, August 1, 2017 when BCH forked, only a handful of the most passionate big-block supporters went and became the Bitcoin Cash community. The rest just remained with BTC and the most passionate small-blockers, on censored discussion areas.
As for the "hate" you talk about that's an interesting story. Imagine a thief robbing your house then being furious at you in court. That's essentially how small-blockers behave toward big-blockers. Their version of BTC is not how the inventor, Satoshi Nakamoto, intended it to be. They won't deny this. So how can they be so angry? I think it's because they know deep down they're on the wrong side of things, and they lash out angrily similar to a child throwing a tantrum. Bitcoin Cash supporters don't exactly love small-blockers, and we're certainly angry they refused to compromise and work with us to carry BTC forward in line with the original plan, but we don't trash talk them. We don't call BTC a "shitcoin". We say if their plan really is best then let it be proven in the marketplace. That seems logical and fair. Yet small-blockers hang around the big-blocker discussion areas talking trash when we don't do the same in return. That should make people think.
Last, regarding your question "I'm invested in both. Am I a bad person?" the answer is that's absolutely fine. Big-blockers believe in freedom of choice. If people don't mind paying high fees and want to use BTC that's absolutely fine. We don't get mad about that. On the other hand, people that choose BCH get harassed by small-blockers. Again, something to think about.

06-11 16:34 - 'A few basic bitcoin-questions that keep me busy' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/Sweet-Zookeepergame removed from /r/Bitcoin within 68-78min

'''
Hi all,
I have a few basic questions about bitcoin.
Like most of you here, I‘m following the crypto-topic for a few years now. I never bought or owned any crypto, because it just too expensive (Bitcoin in particular). Recently I decided to invest some of my savings in 0.5 BTC (bought it for around 4150€). I got excited and started reading and researching even more about bitcoin. One of the basic ideas, which is clearly very popular, is the idea of decentralization. Another one is the cashless digital currency of the world etc. Eventually providing financial possibilities for people without any access to banks.
In my short experience from buying to storing the „coin“ a few thoughts and questions emerged, which I‘d like to share with you and hear your opinion on them.
1.The first thing, which was the most obvious: you still need a bank account, in order to buy any amount of bitcoin. All of the exchanges require you to connect a bank account, in order to buy crypto. Or you can of course exchange crypto for crypto, but then you need to buy the crypto in first place anyway.
How is this going to solve the problem of decentralizing? You still need a bank, which provides the original buyer with a bank account, right?
In other words, how should one imagine a world with bitcoins only? If they are limited only to 21 million, the rich-poor inequality could become even bigger and worse than now, because (theoretically) only one single person could own all of it.
2.Storing bitcoin. I have to admit, storing bitcoin is relatively easy, but one wrong move could make all your crypto disappear.
After I bought the 0.5 BTC, I wanted to store it securely. I read too many stories of people’s wallets being hacked and loosing all their crypto etc. So I decided to buy hardware wallet (Trezor One). The experience was not good. First, I pay transaction fees to move the asset from MY OWN software wallet to MY OWN hardware wallet. This is basically paying transaction fees to move your money from A to B, whereas A and B are in the same room. That worked OK, but then I decided to have some ETH as well. Transferred the ETH to Trezor and boom, my ETH was not visible. The amount of € was correct (Bitcoin + Eth), but only the Bitcoin was visible. Nevertheless I managed go see my ETH through Exodus wallet and transferred it back to my software-wallet, because I felt nervous not seeing it in the Trezor Wallet itself. More transaction fees.
Then I tried backing-up the hardware wallet. Everytime the application said „Application error: Interruption“ or something like that. I had to google to find out that probably the usb-cable was shitty. I bought Ledger Nano X and it‘s much better.
Long story short.
My thoughts on this: storing crypto securely is relatively simple, but I don’t see how this could be adopted by the whole world. Although my parents are good with IT stuff in general, I don’t know if securing bitcoins will be their thing. One wrong move and your coins could be gone. Additionally, a crypto wallet costs money and you can never be sure if the software-company behind it will exist forever to support wallet updates etc.
So, I have to admit: adoption of money is not that different. Having cash in your pocket is risky, because you can get robbed. Your bank account could be hacked. For people who get paid in checks - you have to take the check, go to the bank, stay in line and wait for your money. Takes time.
But there are laws, which protect you from losing money. In most european countries, you are insured for up to 100k EUR per bank account. So if your money gets stolen, the bank is obliged to give it back to you. And for stolen money in cash, there is police etc.
And yes, one more thing about the transaction fees: there are no transaction fees when I pay my rent for example.
3.Volatility:
today bitcoin is around 8600€, tomorrow it could be 400€, the day after tomorrow 20000k. If it is supposed to be a currency, it should be more stable, right? How can you be sure that you have the same amount of „money“ tomorrow?
4.Buying „bigger“ things.
Imagine buying a house. It costs 100 BTC. You meet the seller and then what? You transfer him 100 BTC, then wait for like 3 days until the full transaction is being processed and then? He receives the bitcoins and handles you the keys to the house. Is it yours? How can you prove that it‘s yours?
In this type of bigger deals, I don‘t mind when there is a third party like a lawyer or a bank, which approves the contract.
What are your thoughts on this?
5.I see quite often that bitcoin is being compared to gold.
And I agree, you can‘t do many things with gold either. You can‘t really „pay“ in gold in the supermarket or buy a house. Storing gold is even more difficult. Neither gold nor bitcoin solve any real problem, except that you could eventually make jewelry and nice churches from gold, which is - from point of view - not important.
And still here comes my general question at the end of this post:
What kind of problem does bitcoin solve? Why is there so much hype around it? Am I overseeing something? Maybe it‘s not about being a currency, but something else/something more?
I want to understand why or if it‘s worth holding my 0.5 BTC or rather sell it now, when the price is a bit higher and invest the revenue somewhere else.
Thanks for the comments and the discussion!

I have became addicted to drug dealing and don't know how to stop.

I've been drug dealing for the past 4 years now. I did have a year where I didn't sell anything but besides that, it's been pretty steady. The problem is, I just don't think I can stop. It's become an addiction. I don't give a fuck about getting high. I smoke weed and drink alcohol occasionally but, besides that, I haven't touched another drug.
There's probably a lot that has lead up to this point, starting from a young age, but 4 years ago I found the markets and Bitcoin. It was at a point in my life where things were low and I found drug dealing. My first package was a package of Xanax bars. I made $1,000 profit in about 4 days because, at the time, pressed bars weren't very well known so my prices were dirt cheap compared to everyone else's.
That's the moment things changed for me. The moment where I fucked everything up for myself.
4 years later, here I am. It's a fucking addiction. When I stop, it's for a month, max besides the one year I quit due to personal and OPSEC related reasons. It's a craving I can't make go away. The adrenaline of doing something illegal, the money, the respect, the power you have over your little group of people...I don't know...it's impossible for me to explain so I'll explain the more addicted part now.
The money.
You think drug dealing will ruin your life because of prison or getting robbed, and while true, there's a sneakier way nobody tells you about; MONEY. I've dropped out of college and haven't held down a job more than 6 months due to it. When you make $55-75K a year WITH NO TAXES, everything else is a blur. College? That takes 4 years of being broke! I can't do that! Holding down a minimum wage job? That's like $400 a week, if you're busting ass. I was making $1,000(PROFIT, not GROSS) a week, making a couple moves. I moved bulk only so I wasn't meeting people every 30 minutes to make my money.
I was my own boss and money gave me freedom. Freedom. That's where the addiction comes into play. Drug dealing was 50% of it but the other 50% was the freedom money gave me.
I make about, on average, $4,000 NET profit a month. My monthly bills are only around $1,800 for everything besides food(Love living in a cheap state) so that leaves me a good chunk of change to myself. That leaves me $2,200 a month in my own pocket. This monthly cost includes a maid, once a week, dropping my clothes off at a laundromat to get washed, dried, and folded, and having my groceries delivered to my house.
I have all the time in the world to myself. It's so addicting.
Want to go play Laser Tag and ride Go-Karts all day? You can! Want to go do 18 holes Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday? Grab some cigars and let's go! Want to take a week long vacation? Easy, all you gotta do is tell your people that you're leaving and to re-up while they can! Then you're free to leave! Want to smoke weed and play video games all day? Done! Want to learn a skill like playing piano, programming, or anything? You can practice 8 hours a day!
I'm not even mentioning the material items. I have a PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Gaming PC, MacBook, TaylorMade golf club set, Boosted Board, HTC Vive, 4K TV's, all the smart home gadgets an apartment can have(Lights, outlets, TV's, ect), and clothes galore. I also have a pretty decent car. If I don't have it, I have multiple options to get it. I can either save up and wait, trade product for it, or just up my sales to cover the cost.
Oh, that's another thing you can't do with a paycheck, upping your sales. If I need money or just want to thicken the savings account, I can just push my sales a little harder. Offer a slight discount for more bulk, bring in a different product, or seek out new customers. $6,000 months are not crazy uncommon. Drugs sell themselves.
So yeah, you can see where everything becomes an addiction. Life is just...easy. Drugs sell themselves. Money gives you freedom. It's a bad mix.
The problem is quitting. I could quit today and have a pretty decent savings to hold me over but after that, I'd have nothing. I have no college education and no work experience I'd be willing to put down on a resume. I have no references. I have no legal connections. I have nothing besides the business I've. built around myself. Surrounded by people who do the same thing that I do.
I have a couple moves I could make but my motivation is shot. I could go back to college, that's a great option. I could hone in on my weed growing skills and save up for when legalization comes to my state. I could build a legit business.
For now though, I'll stick to what I know and what I'm good at. Hoping to find the dragon I'm chasing.

What's your view on Cryptocurrencies?

So I usually have pretty positive view on cryptocurrency as a Marxist. It might be my old libertarian self, but I also think from a Marxist perspective there are many benefits here, but I also see a lot of issues so let me explain, and you can add your views or criticism to it too.
 
First of all I am not an idealist, I don't think that we will live to see a communist society, while the direction of the economy points to that direction, it's probably so far in the future that it's not wise to think about it now, instead we should implement things in today's economy that only gently push things in that direction and develop the economy well and help and empower people, that is my practical stance. I am not like Khruschev who said that Communism will come in 20 years in 1960 and in 1980 they basically had food lines and rationing lol. To claim that communism is anywhere near on the horizon is dishonest opportunism for political goals, there are still much more urgent issues that need to be solved and a true communist would give up it's long term dreams for tangible improvements that can be achieved today, after all to sacrifice the present for the future is the true leftist spirit I think and impatience and opportunism is not. Our ancestors have sacrificed a lot to have what we have today so we should too for the future.
 
So that being said I don't have any delusions about cryptocurrencies being the ultimate form of economic organization but I think think it's a step in the right direction. Why? Because it empowers people, it's as simple as that. It won't end class society but it will certainly chip away the power from entrenched oligarchies and empower everyday people more. Starting with eliminating inflation, which is a massive burden on poor people with fixed wages. What inflation is is basically the central banks printing money (or rather borrowing it from nothing) and then shoving that money into the stock market, real estate market, and probably government military spending, thereby making those prices go up but also all other prices since they devalue money itself, which means that obviously anyone on fixed wages (and wages are not indexed to inflation) will be left to pay for that. It's a completely disgusting way to rob the poor and I don't know how can any leftist support banks or central banks, it blows my mind when I see leftists shill for this kind of corrupt system. So inflation is basically the pillaging of the poor and regular workers on fixed wages via increased consumer prices (and especially rent, healthcare and education like in the US). So don't you think that having a form of money which is outside of this vicious circle is a step in the right direction? I think it is, it would massively help poor and middle class people at the expense of big bankers and oligarchs.
 
So my main positive view about is this process of empowering people, there are also others like smaller transaction fees, instantaneous payments, non-censorship and anonymity, which can go both ways it can empower both good and bad people, but I claim that the tradeoff is worth it. There are overwhelmingly more good people on the planet than bad people, which means that if the majority of people get those rights then it's worth it. You can't strip away rights from the majority only to punish the minority, that is a recipe for totalitarianism. And if you don't believe me that there are more good people than bad people then why the hell would you support the current system? So democracy is good because the majority of good people can shove aside the minority of bad people, and it's quite democratically organized, everyone could be a miner so each person could have a voice, and each person can unilaterally initiate a transaction, you don't need to ask for permission from gatekeepers, which makes it a direct relationship rather than a bureaucratic indirect one, so it's good from all of these sides.
 
Now there are of course bad sides of it for example there are many technical problems: exponentially increasing block, quantum vulnerability, lag issues, lack of true anonymity, vulnerability to wallet hacks, people locking themselves out, and the POW algorithm being pretty wasteful and inefficient. Now I am sure these will all be solved in time, so no need to worry about them.
My bigger worries are rather about it's economic side. As you know all value is derived from labor, therefore Bitcoin has no inherent value if it's no tied to labor. You see all currencies are fiat currencies, there is no distinction between fiat and commodity money, that is just Libertarian nonsense. All currencies are fiat currencies because their value is just "let it be so". Now the crucial difference is that Bitcoin is a self-managed system, and more democratic meaning that it's not controlled by central banks so it's supply size is not altered at will. However there is still no more fundamental value inherent into it than to US Dollars or Monopoly board game cash. The only difference between the USD and Monopoly cash is that the USD is used by billions of workers to exchange labor value while the Monopoly cash is not, also the USD has some protections against counterfeit, and so does Bitcoin. So essentially the only difference between the 3 is that the all of them are toy cash but the USD and Bitcoin has protections against counterfeiting while a toy cash doesnt, and the USD is widely used while the other 2 aren't. Furthermore Bitcoin is democratic as explained above so it makes it superior than the USD, but only if it's going to be widely used.
 
So Bitcoin will only be valuable and superior if it will be used to exchange labor value into commodities, it has to be coupled to the labor value of the workers. Well the government has an easy way to do that, it can just implement laws backed by violence to make it's toy cash be used to exchange labor value to commodities. So the fact that you get your paycheck in USD and then go into the supermarket to buy food with it couples your labor value to that currency and imbues it with use value. Bitcoin doesn't have this because there is no state that will enforce it's use in the economy. So Bitcoin is at a disadvantage because employers will have to adopt it voluntarily and pay their workers in BTC and then also supermarkets will have to also accept it as a form of payment for products. If this doesn't happen then Bitcoin's true value is 0.
This is why I am worried about it's future because I don't see a massive trend of adoption. I don't see any employer paying people in BTC, most laws don't allow it, and almost no supermarket accepts it. Now of course there are some online gig stores, remmittances and people buying drugs with it, which I guess gives it a minimum value which is why it hasn't collapsed to 0$ yet, but it can't sustain itself in the long term if workers will not adopt it. A bunch of techno hipsters "HODLING" and online tipping and freelancing jobs and drug dealers don't cut it. It gives it a minimum value but it doesnt necessarily make it mainstream and it makes it's future questionable and uncertain as the fad can fade at any time and then many young hipsters will be very depressed when they will see all their savings go to 0$, many people sold their houses to buy BTC and still havent recovered.
 
So this is my view on it, it's a step in the right direction to empower the majority of people, it can be good for poor people, immigrants and remittances, freelancers and the middle class, so it's definitely a positive thing, but there are many problems and uncertainties which is why I would be cautious to put all my money in it.

Lessons learned - Crypto and Divorce - In January I was a millionaire thanks to BTC, then my wife divorces me and now I have $30,000 AMA

Crossreferencing u/nanoissuperior He wrote earlier today: https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/a3n6uw/in_january_i_was_a_millionaire_thanks_to_nano_now/
Title: In January I was a millionaire thanks to Nano, now I have $25,000 AMA

I was replying to his post, but my reply ended up being a bit too large as a reply and steered off-topic, albeit an interesting one. So I decided to make it its own post, because there may be a good lessons to be learned and hoping some will come forward with good information to be shared.
I hope it can help anyone on this sub avoid the costly mistakes that I made. Here it goes: FLAIR: LEGAL (not in the list)
----
u/nanoissuperior are you who I think you are? I won't give out any further identifying clues, but I happen to know someone in the exact same position that could have written that exact same headline. If you read the first paragraph, you'll know if you know me.
The person I know bought Nano really early, based on a tip from a friend. I got in much later. By the time he told me it had already spiked to the $5 range, when I ended up buying. I then sold in the $20's so it was a good buy nonetheless. We were former colleagues at a large, large software company somewhere in the PNW, I left the company to venture out on my own and try to launch some projects I had in mind and relocated overseas for a few years. We lost contact with each other during my time away, but we connected again during the market runup and started exchanging coin information on a daily basis during the big bull run of late 2017. That was a crazy time.... the market trend was a few degrees short of vertical for pretty much all coins!

Hey, guess what? Now that I think about it, I could have written that same headline myself! In January 2018 I was a Millionaire too! Not with Nano, but thanks to purchasing a good chunk of Bitcoin in 2011 at $1.20 each. I ended up a single digit millionaire with what I had left in Bitcoin around January of 2018.
And, just like you, today, from all that wealth, I have about $30.000 left, with little to show for. Can we call that even? Although my disaster was not caused entirely by market fluctuation; Mine is a more complex story and I am going to mention it, because hopefully, it could serve as a lesson to be learned for any crypto holder out there, so they don't make the make mistake I made: Don't trust anyone. Always be skeptical and watch out for your own interests. Anyhow, here it goes:
After 5 years overseas, I had enough and wanted to come back to the States. My wife stated her preference to stay abroad, but eventually, she conceded albeit reluctantly. We chose a small town in CO to settle, and landed in November of 2017. We had plans to settle down and considered purchasing a home with my/our new fortune, based on the market price during that period. At the same time, I was also hesitant about the inherent tax payments due caused by such large liquidation. I was trying to have to pay taxes as far away as possible. So, I decided to wait till New Year's Eve and started liquidating my crypto on January 1st, 2018 right after midnight. This way, I would have 16 months (till April, 2019) to pay any capital gains taxes, and I was confident at the time that the market would give me that for free, especially at the pace that it was going. I have been an early adopter and have since then acquired the high levels of verification and trading limits per week, with many exchanges, but for a large sum like this, I needed several separate transactions, over the course of several weeks, especially wanting to do it with a US-based exchange that was linked to a US bank accounts, to avoid overseas wire transfers, meaning more fees. (Yes, I did look at all OTC options, but for reasons not relevant to the story, I couldn't make it happen, so I had to use the traditional Exchange channels for asset liquidation).
My wife and I, initially had some fundamental disagreements on the gross amount to be spent and the type of property we should be purchasing. I wanted a smaller place, with a denser, younger community, where there'd be kids our son's age for him to play. She insisted that we should go big; we had been traveling for so many years, and we had not been able to call any of our past residences our home. It was time to settle and nest; She convinced me that we should own a property of our own that we would be proud of living in for years. One that we could own outright and would not easily outgrow. We ended up splurging and purchased in cash two luxury cars for ourselves and set our sights on a large dream house in the city's Golf & Country Club, free and clear, for us and our two kids. I don't even play golf, nor do I even like it, but, if it makes her happy and it is within the safe margins of making it happen, I figured, why not? My concerns were largely financial and the numbers were adding up. It was a bit tight against my personal safe margins, but, at the same time, I was imagining to never have to make, or even have to think about, a car or home mortgage payment ever again! Bitcoin is on a roll and there is no sign of it stopping. Fine. Let's do it, before I change my mind.
Now, I admit I was extremely lucky with choosing the time of when to sell the assets. I had no clue the market would take a dive in February, and so it seemed to many that I had timed the market perfectly, selling most of my coins in the first two weeks of January of 2018. Many called me a genius for selling at the very top, as if I had some sort of wisdom to know when it would drop; the truth is much less flattering; it was nothing but dumb luck, based on me wanting to pay taxes in 2018 and defer to 2019. Awesome, well done! Yeah? well, slow down, son, not so fast.
So, I gather the 7-digit lumpsum in January 2018 and we write a check for the full amount at closing in February on the property of her dreams. A property that could easily be showcased on a luxury Real Estate magazine cover. Also, remember we had just moved back to the United States with just a few suitcases each from overseas. We had no furniture, kitchenware, curtains, TV's, bed sheets, winter clothing and so many other essential things that one usually purchases over time, but which we now had to purchase all at once. Not a problem, Bitcoin had dropped slightly but still well above $15k, I believe, at the time. And, earlier, in January, I had diligently taken this expense into account and effortlessly set aside a small fortune for equipping such a large house with everything we would ever need, brand new. It seemed we were protagonists of one of the Home Makeover Shows.
Finally, after working day and night, prepping the house non-stop for days and when every piece of furniture had finally arrived, been unpacked and carried to its corresponding room, it seemed most of the essentials were in place and the hard work was done. I longed for pouring myself a Scotch and to finally sit down and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I head downstairs to the dedicated walk-in, cigar-humidor / wine / Scotch cellar in the basement and grab the better bottle of Whisky of the few bottles of Scotch that I had bought earlier in the week. On my way up, I remember feeling a sense of calm, combined with a glow of excitement and this undescribable profound inner peace, all at once. This was such a rare, natural, non-drug induced high that I had never experienced. It felt so good! This sense of accomplishment of achieving that one thing I had been chasing and longing for my entire life. I had expected I would be chasing this goal for the next 15-20 years, and yet, here it was. No, where I was, was even better than expected! A place where not even my parents, who still have to make their monthly mortgage payments. I had done it! With a smile from ear to ear, I take a deep breath of relief and while looking around the property, I think to myself: "It's perfect, everything is in place and I can finally call this our home. We are so lucky and we are going to live a great life. A life that few can only dream of. So many concerns will be lifted and become redundant. Everything will be better. I'll start a fire in one of our two fireplaces and I am going to begin enjoying my semi-retired life with the first sip of my drink. That will be the official start of our new life".
I head over to the kitchen to get a glass and some ice cubes, while I struggle to find which one is the freezer among the many drawers in the kitchen. It was then when I notice a handwritten note placed front and center on the kitchen counter. It is from my wife and read: "There is no easy way to say this, so I am just going to say it..... I want to legally divorce [ ...]". It continued saying that she had taken our son, and had unequivocally decided to leave me. She had already filed the paperwork for divorce and that I should expect to be served in the morning.
My bliss had lasted less than 5 minutes and in less than two seconds, it turned dark, somber and I saw it all crumbling down in front of me. Like a long-awaited rocket launch, years in preparation, which then unexpectedly explodes on the launch pad during the countdown. My stomach, heart and everything in my body just sank and melted into one ball of poison in my core. I felt like throwing up. I was completely blindsided; she had played the game all along, not giving me the slightest hint of what was being concocted in the background. She had already engaged with her lawyers weeks beforehand. Her mother was already in town from another state to help out with I don't know what. I had been gaslighted and was threatened by her that I needed to see a psychiatrist due to a change in my temper that I had supposedly developed - my temper was awesome: with BTC at that price? Everything was perfect! But I obeyed and went anyhow (this would later fit her story that she had to leave with the child because she feared for her safety due to my supposed temper for which I was under treatment, therefore, I must have this temper problem, see?). Also, the purchase of the overpriced home also seemed clearly premeditated: Price was the main driver of the decision making; not location, demographics, taxes, etc. It was the wrong neighborhood for us (people much older than us, retired, golfers and no kids the same age as our son to play with). Our house happened to also be the most expensive in the neighborhood. I can see it all so clearly now.
See, your crypto coins on the blockchain, are not within the US court's jurisdiction (or, at least, it's quite debatable - a gray area - ask me for the seed and I can tell you that I may have the seed, or that I may not have the seed, I may have the wrong seed, I may have forgotten it, I may have lost it - you can't prove I did not forget, or lost it, etc). However, once it is in FIAT in a bank, or invested in a property, the courts can rule on the asset(s), freeze, disburse or order a sale of the property, etc. It's done all the time.
Also, the coins were technically mine, and by definition private property (not to be divided during the divorce) as they were acquired before the marriage. I could not prove its origins (I bought many of them via direct messaging members on Bitcointalk.org and mining rather than exchanges, so no records, receipts or nothing to prove otherwise: the big exchanges like BitStamp and Coinbase didn't start operations till 2013, if I m not mistaken. Instead, I would talk to one of the forum members offering coins we'd agree on a price, I'd send a check to wherever the individual seller instructed me to (Russia, Bulgaria, Japan, UK. etc) and the coins would be deposited to whatever address I provided. Yes, it was quite crude at the time.
However, once I converted my coins to cash and used that cash to buy a property for the benefit of the family, it became common property and thus she then had rights to a portion of it when divided between the two parties should a divorce occur - which ended up being almost 3/4 of all assets.
I was robbed in broad daylight. By the one person, I trusted with my life. The one you should trust with your life. Your life partner. And while I was in complete denial, trying to bargain, I waited too long to obtain good legal representation. When I finally ended up getting a lawyer, I was quite distraught and I clearly did not do the proper research and this resulted in a less than stellar performance and detrimental to me at many key steps in the process. I had to switch legal representation right before mediation and I can't blame my new lawyer either, as (s)he did not have the required time to catch up on all the details, (s)he did his/her best, but I was ultimately strongarmed into conceding my soon-to-be-ex-wife to let her return to the house, in exchange to obtain 50% of my son's custody, with serious and strict clauses I had to abide by. So, I had to move out, find a hole in the wall in a student apartment, pay my rent and pay our kids pre-school, while she lives grandiose, without monthly payments in the country club, till the house sells, which will likely be in the spring of next year. Nice!
Due to my delay, legal mishandling and somehow every other element in her favor, she inexplicably ended up with around 3/4 of the worth of all assets, free and clear, no taxes due. Mind you, she has never financially contributed, nor made a single $ during our entire marriage. She has never worked and had $0 in her pocket when we married. She didn't even have a checking account, well in her thirties. She is no dummy; she is street smart, knows how to manipulate people, get her way with flirting and charm, while I am more intellectual and book smart. and She beat me hands-down. She is walking away with a sum of, not quite 7 figures, but close.
With what I am left with from the sale of the house, I am responsible to pay for all the capital gains taxes from the liquidation to the IRS, which are due in April 2019. I don't expect there to be more left over than the estimated $30k mentioned above.
Hate the market all you want, I made peace with the market and am keeping busy at hating my ex for a while for putting me in the same situation. She tripped me 1 yard before the finish line and pushed me in the prickly bushes, to cross it by herself. Go figure. When I am done hating her, I'll get back to rebuilding my life again from scratch. I am not worried, I have done it before. Just pissed, I was so close and that I was so naive to not see it coming.
Sorry, I am not meaning to hijack the thread, just wanted you to know that others may have lost more than just "free" money; money we didn't really have to work for. We were the lucky ones. It is what I keep telling myself to stop me from jumping off a bridge.
PS - Woah: Sorry for the wall of text; I was just going to write the first paragraph and ended up venting about my current situation. I know, I should take this issue to /depressed, /exes or /whereisthenearestbridgeIcanjumpfrom.
Hopefully, this can be a lesson to those holding crypto and some can learn what NOT to do. I learned the hard way and was left with nothing. Don't be a nice guy. Don't trust anyone with your crypto. Anyhow, I am sure either our vigilant subreddit bot, or one of the mods will remove my post for not adhering to rule, and if not, I am sure that you fine people will downvote me to hell. Go ahead. Take away from me the little Karma I left too! Thanks!

I learned many lessons, but here are some key ones [IANAL - any crypto-educated AL opinion appreciated here, thanks] :
- Understand the concept of private property - property you acquire before getting married. INAL - this depends on the state legislation, but it is hard to prove with crypto, especially if you obtained your crypto through foreign exchanges, outside of legal jurisdictions, the petitioner might not understand or willing to invest in obtaining subpoenas and requests to businesses operating overseas, as this may result costly.
- Get a lawyer who understands, or is willing to understand crypto, its benefits of being somewhat unreachable and how that can work for you. Don't let them shortchange you with: "well, let's just convert the rest to cash, because that I understand" type of reasoning.
- If you do go to mediation, the above applies as well. This arbitrator or mediator needs to be one that understands the intrinsic details of crypto - for example, during the ATH, I bought 6 digits worth in $USD of Stellar. I used the very first version of the software, supporting Stellar on my hardware device, and put it all in a cold storage wallet somewhere around January. I routinely checked on my coins on the blockchain and they are there. A few months later, I try to access my account and the device returns a different public address, which contains 0 funds. I am still trying to debug this issue with the manufacturer, but the fact is that I was accused of hiding these coins or negligence and was demanded that I paid half of what was lost. or not lost, out of my pocket for money that I didn't have access either. I tried to explain it in the simplest terms, there are risks involved with using first come software. There is no 1800 number, mo tech support. no CEO, no, you can't call the BBB and complain, etc and no one seemed to be able to understand, nor willing to either. It became a huge roadblock for which I had to concede, not cash, but a concession, I was not wanting to concede. The petitioner leaned on the fact that I was either wilfully cheating or stupid enough to lose the coins and managed to create enough doubt in my character and integrity and there was nothing rational I could explain that she, or anyone else in the room would understand. Perhaps mutually contracting a seasoned crypto expert that can offer a neutral view and give his/her opinion might be worth considering. Andreas, where were you when I needed you? :)
- Other examples were some coins I had bought in 2012 and gifted to some of her family's kids. I was holding these, till they would turn 16 for them to pay themselves their college, or so I told them. These coins were demanded back by the petitioner. Ok, I suggested that I would send them, but with a CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY value with a block height of let's say,10 years from now, out of fear that she would spend the coins and the kids would never know (they are toddlers). No one understood what I was talking about, I was made out the crazy one, I gave up, sent her the coins, unlocked and, just as I expected, within 20 minutes of receiving them, she spent $1200 worth of it (for a flight, I think). If you are the only one speaking your language, no one is willing to listen or make an effort to understand you.
- It appears my coins were private property, which means, that I acquired them before the marriage and in case of divorce, if I have not moved them or used them for the common good of the marriage, then they remain mine. However, I liquidated them and cash ended up in my checking account to be used to buy groceries, cars and eventually a house, and it is then that they became common property. Only once they landed in my checking account on which she is named on. It appears that had I taken proper legal precautions with documentation, or a company/trust, where that money would have gone, instead of my checking accounts, elsewhere, I would have still been able to be the legal proprietor of the resulting cash. I can't quite remember the details, but it as something that was explained to me afterward, and I honestly think I just tuned it out, because it made me sick to know I could have held on to my wealth. Perhaps a lawyer can chime in? Again, much of the lack of information and every misstep taken was because of dealing with people that are accustomed to traditional assets and will not deviate from it. Crypto is different and is treated differently. It is so important to know the strengths and weaknesses when going into litigation about something that people don't understand.
- Some more I can think of, but this post is getting way out of hand in size. Feel free to comment/suggest your own and I'll add more to the comments.

Credits to: u/nanoissuperior Thanks for your post, it inspired me to write this one. Anyone, any karma you feels needs to go his way, for providing the source of inspiration, please give to O-OP.

TL;DR: Wife, having contributed $0 during entire marriage, waited until I cashed out all my crypto at the top of the bull market in January 2018, for a nice seven-figure amount, and then immediately divorced me for the money.

Edit: added TL;DR
