So WTC are holding a "grand event" on the 28th. I've been wanting to put some money into WTC for a little while now. But with the upcoming event and prices rising my instinct is to wait for a sell the news - dump.
Hard to say. The thing that makes me think sell the news is that most of the information about it (the specific partnerships being signed, media presence etc) is already known. And it has had some monstrous growth this month while everything else bled.
That said, who knows. Walton will be much higher than it is now by mainnet for sure anyhow
I need to thank you for my profits. You shilled it to me ages back at .0016. I bought in for the first and only time on something with absolutely no research. Went through a month of miserable hodling as it yoyo'd 0009 to 0015 and then we eventually doubled up. Will come back in if there is a pullback=)
No worries :)
So.. I bought some ICX based on many shills on reddit. I do hope it does do well but I got some concerns.
I frequent Korean crypto forums and it is surprising that ICX is not hyped at all there. Even if I search for ICX, there are only handful of threads.
It seems like most Koreans are only interested in QTUM and EOS, which is confusing to be honest.
A lot of Korean investors are new, who started this crypto game around Nov-Dec of 2017. They are looking for quick gains. They think BTC and ETH are already grown too much and looking for the next BTC/ETH to become rich quick.
Frankly, I am surprised that most of users proclaim that they don't own any BTC and ETH. But I digress..
Anyways, so I am concerned that Koreans actually don't care about ICX. On the other hand, this can be a good news because not much Korean moneys are in ICX yet. If marketing catches on in Korea and all those Korean money flows into ICX, the price will surely pump.
However, this lack of interest in Korea is concerning. It seems like only the reddit communites are hyping the ICX.
Personally, I don't really trust Korean software developers. Koreans aren't really known for stellar software developers. Most of the Korean softwares are only popular within Korea and can't really comepete with the world.
Perhaps this is similar sentiment in Korea, hence not many Koreans pay attention to ICX?
Disclaimers: Hodls ICX. Can read and write in Korean. Eth is 90% of my portfolio.
Isn't the fact that there isn't much Korean hype yet good for your moon ambitions?
Will this year be the year of interoperability chains? (AION, ICON, WAN, ARK etc). Seems like that's the next big step to really bring blockchain to widespread global use, and these projects still seem somewhat under the radar relative to a lot of other big namers.
Can you elaborate? I've always heard socialism described as workers owning and controlling the means of production.
Unfortunately some people (on the left) are misled to believe that's all there is to socialism - it isn't. Socialism is the abolition of capitalism, private property, and everything that results from those things.
Well capitalism is private ownership of the MoP, wage labour, surplus value, etc.
Private property is just MoP which is privately owned.
So if you abolish capitalism and private property, you are left with workers owning and controlling the MoP, which is...socialism.
Capitalism is generalized commodity production, aka, the production of goods/services for their exchange value. With socialism being the abolition of capitalism socialism thus requires the abolition of commodity production -- the abolition of markets.
To that extent Co-ops are still capitalism as they still operate in a market economy.
I think that's just wrong, because capitalism describes a system of ownership and not a system of exchange. Socialism is compatible with markets - you have market socialism, market anarchism, mutualism etc. which all have exchange of goods in a free market but certainly are not capitalistic. Because private ownership of capital, wage labour, production for profit would all no longer exist, and industries would be owned and ran by the workers and for the workers.
God it makes me cringe when y'all say "dead cat bounce". A few years ago my grandpa's cat died after grandma died and he couldnt take it anymore. He tried to deny that the cat is dead and started to play with it and show us how it bounces (spoiler alert: he was moving the dead cat around) He starred into our eyes and tried to convince us that the cat is alive. If we didnt force him to burry it i think he would've kept it for a week rotting in the living room. Im not even shitposting.
Well that was a little dark for ethtrader
I feel like it's safer to assume that an authoritarian communist government would try to crack down on something like this. Is that just me?
Lol the Chinese govt is pretty authoritarian by modern standards yes, but they're far from "communist". They have a capitalist market economy, just one that has a lot of oversight from the state. They aren't going to miss out on a technology that is sweeping the entire world.
Also never underestimate the ability of even self professed communists to acquire wealth for themselves through corrupt means.
Couple points here
1) Who is planning to buy at $10? If the price is that high initially, that's a 30x return for ICO folks and they are going to dump spectacularly so I certainly won't be buying anywhere near that price
2) Wanchain isn't a good investment unless you make 100x returns? Personally I would have been more than happy with 10-15x returns on it this year if the crypto market remains bullish
Is there a lot of congestion in the eth network or something? I sent some eth from kucoin to binance and after an hour it still shows up as transaction not found on etherscan even though it says success on kucoin. 100% sure the address is right
