Pretty good listen if you are already interested and decently versed in bitcoin and S2F model. Livera is my favorite bitcoin podcaster- and the guest is PlanB of the S2F model as well as Saifedean Ammous, well regarded Austrian economist and author of The Bitcoin Standard, which I recommend to anyone who shows even a tangential interest in bitcoin. PlanB is on Livera podcast 1 or two other times before, worth the listen in those instances too. He finally started pronouncing “scarce” in the American way this time!
I’ve read The Bitcoin Standard 3 times and highly recommend it to anyone. As a person tho, Saifedean is a pretty big POS.

I read this a while back and hadn’t posted it anywhere but thought I would share my opinion. During the last big run in Dec 2017 was the first time Bitcoin moved more than $1000 in a single day. That was the peak of the bull run. This time, like what I read a while back will be the first time Bitcoin moves more than $10,000 in a single day. At that point I think we will see the new ATH at the very top.

?s=21

I knew I had it bookmarked...

Linked tweet discusses similar idea. Pretty mind blowing to think of any asset increasing by $10,000 in one day, though I’m sure the idea of BTC increasing by $1000 in a day was insane just a few years ago.

Great point about it occurring near the top- in the past the bulk of the price gain has happened in only a very short period as the price goes parabolic after a long and slow climb. Timing when to get out is even harder than timing when to get in imo. Makes the idea of a long term hodl very appealing.

Always. I always have some cash set aside so I can buy whenever. Never pull the trigger on all of it at once because you never know, it could go lower.

DaBigTrain, I just went back and read some of the earlier posts in this thread. Are you still bullish on LTC at this point?

I personally hold 85% BTC, 15% ETH. No LTC, but there isn't a real reason for it. Debating adding a little exposure there.

No, not at all.  I converted anything I had outside out Bitcoin to Bitcoin over a year ago.  PlanB did S2F for LTC and there was no correlation whatsoever, and nothing came after their halving either.  Since I converted the LTC I had to BTC it has lost 75% of it's worth compared to BTC.

Good grief it’s been 2 weeks.

Like I have said MANY times the highest price for the past 2 halvings occurred about a year and half AFTER the halving.
