Hello r/bitcoin, we need help. Macron was hacked and his team's emails leaked on 4chan. There was one email showing him buying drugs with Bitcoin. Maybe you can check addresses or something? We don't know if emails are 100% authentic.
An Aid to the French Presidential Candidate Macron Did Not Buy Drugs with Bitcoin – a Bitcoin Miner Might Have.
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 83%.
So we took a look at allegations- started by others, but shared by Milo Yiannopoulos - that an aid to the French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron had bought drugs with bitcoin. The evidence presented shows an e-mail that seemingly suggests places where you can buy bitcoin, such as Coinbase and Kraken, both reputable bitcoin exchanges. It's very much similar to an IP address, but while the world wide web engineers were far too kind and made IPs humanly readable by translating them into words, bitcoin hasn't yet managed to do so. That's not what happened in this case as the evidence says it was sent directly from the miner to the alleged bitcoin address of Tourret. They present no evidence to reach such conclusion and, since bitcoin addresses are pseudo-anonymous similar to reddit nicknames, without something to link the bitcoin address to Tourret then we cannot in any way say who this address belongs to. With such small amounts and just two transactions, we can't really say anything about this address as far as the blockchain is concerned except that it did receive around 202 euros worth of bitcoin and sent the same amount to this address.
Be Careful with fake info sourced to the Maxwell release over the next 24-48 hrs
The judge has agreed to unseal the info and Maxwell's lawyers have failed to block it. https://abcnews.go.com/US/judge-rule-unsealing-records-defamation-case-ghislaine-maxwell/story?id=71934696 The only thing they can do now is attempt to minimize any uncomfortable info being shared and reaching public consciousness . One of the best ways to do this, tried and perfected during the French presidential elections is to release fake info or take the original release and append fake info to it. In the french elections there was an email leak with a fake email about buying drugs with bitcoin that the conspiracy community latched onto when likely that came from Macrons PR people themselves to discredit the leaks in general. If they can get people to start claiming something rediculous that turns out to be fake, they can discredit all of us. Basically, just be careful and don't share stuff until it's been confirmed as coming from the official sources. Thanks for your patience.
From what I understand of Nano so far this crypto to me seems to be the one that is most suited to replace cash/fiat. I'll lay out why I think this is so and ask some questions, since I'm still unclear on some specifics. First of all, I'm not from a technical background (I work in Finance) so my thinking is more along the lines of how usable this is. I think I understand why the node/voting system is a suitable way to run a decentralized currency, but like I said this is not my strongest area. Where I think Nano really excels is:
Speed of transactions. I tested this for myself using one of the faucets (which, by the way, are a brilliant idea) and it's quite amazing to me how fast the Nano actually showed up in my wallet. Which brings me to my next point;
Ease of creating a wallet. Creating the wallet couldn't have been easier, even for someone like me.
The "green-ness" of using this currency. From what I understand, any comparison with Bitcoin is a very easy win due to the massive energy usage of Bitcoin but Nano energy usage is very low even in absolute terms. Given the large focus on greening the world that is going on nowadays I think it's great to have a crypto where you can point out it doesn't actually use all that much energy and might even use less than traditional methods of payment (though I don't know whether that is the case, if someone can help me out there I'd much appreciate it).
Privacy. I'm actually on the fence here. I think the lower privacy is seen as negative by many of the crypto enthusiasts but realistically I think privacy-focused arguments hurt adoption by the broader public in the sense that this gives crypto an air of illegality. Many people I talk to (who think crypto = Bitcoin) can only see one use case, and that's buying drugs with Bitcoin because you're anonymous. That doesn't lend itself to proudly proclaiming you believe in Bitcoin. I'm still unsure whether I like how everyone can see account balances, which as far as I'm aware is the case.
A question I still have:
Transactions per second remain an unclear point to me. While obviously Nano has the edge here on many other cryptocurrencies, what is unclear to me is to what extent this TpS limit that was mentioned early on of 7k/s, I believe based on hardware at that moment, is an actual limit. From what I gather this is dependent on hardware, but I can't seem to find out whether that depends on the average node speed or the fastest node speed, or somewhere in between.
Of course there are the general uncertainties regarding to which extent cryptocurrencies are going to be allowed to exist, given their threat to central banking. Given these uncertainties are pretty much equal for all cryptocurrencies it would be unfair to name this as a disadvantage for just Nano, but I see it as a disadvantage for any cryptocurrency nonetheless. As far as cryptocurrencies go this one feels most like a ready-to-use actual CURRENCY though. From the ease of making a wallet, the speed of transactions (and the fact that you can say there are 0 fees), the fact that you can generate a QR code to ask for payment (brilliant move), this feels like a crypto that I could literally explain my parents how to use. Only difficulty would be having them go through buying bitcoin, transferring to an exchange, then converting on the exchange and transferring to the wallet.. To add to that, the community appears helpful, a project like the one in Venezuela bodes well, and the aforementioned faucets are an amazing idea. If I were a merchant, I think I'd set up to accept Nano. Small side note now that I'm thinking along those lines: Having the QR code request function convert automatically to dollaeuro might be useful to build in so that, while Nano is not the unit of account people prefer to calculate with, they can just input X dollars/euros and have it be converted to nano automatically. Anyway, given I think Nano is quite a strong contender to be an actual viable currency I think it's great that the focus now seems to have shifted to improving adoption. If it were possible to buy nano directly on an exchange with euros that would make my life a lot easier (jeez, what a pain to buy bitcoin on one service, transfer to another service, convert it there etc etc..). The value proposition for business owners also seems very clear to me. I guess I'll start asking business owners "do you also take Nano?" to help do my small part :) This post turned into a bit of a long ramble, consider it a newbie's viewpoint of Nano. If someone can help me explain how the transactions per second limit works I'd be much obliged. As a final note, I must say I'm quite boggled how so many cryptos are "larger" than Nano in the sense that their market cap is higher or they're talked about more. I must be missing something, but I can't really find a justifiable reason aside from the simple "they were here earlier".
Ok, I've done a lot of these bubbles. So for the n00bs and the people that have only done it once, let me give you some sober advice.
Get your Bitcoin out of exchanges during a bubble. If you're an active trader, you're probably an idiot and won't listen to this advice. But at least I can say I warned you.
Bitcoin price will go to the moon, and Bitcoin price will drop. The pain of drops gets worse and worse and worse. When we hit $30 after Schumer told the world you could buy drugs with Bitcoin, there were tons of people who bought, and were sad and lonely and depressed after it crashed back to just below $1. Think about how much worse that will be when people put their life savings in at $10,000 and the price crashes to $1,000. There is going to be a bad multiplicative effect here if the bubbles get bigger and bigger.
You don't know anything, you don't know how high it will go, you don't know how far it will crash. Don't play the game. Just ride. If you belieb this experiment will work, then just hold. You will be sad you didn't sell at the top, but you will be glad you ended up better than you were when it was low.
Don't invest more than you can lose.
Stop trying to explain why the price is going up. There is almost no reason that it should be mooning right now, which should tell you that this is very likely just irrational exuberance. Many of you will be given to it. You will dump your money in, exacerbate the bubble, and we will see a rash of news reports, more and more people will pour in, and more and more money will be on chain. It will be good for Bitcoin, as it will bring with it a large number of new beliebers. But it won't be easy when we hit another long lull where Bitcoin sits for a long period of time at some small number.
Don't tell your family to get in.
Don't tell your friends to get in.
Avoid pumping generally. Answer questions about Bitcoin, but give everyone the caveat: "I never recommend anyone buy unless they first understand the technology and beliebe that it will work." Or something like that.
With a new rash of people there will be new scams. If you have not yet been scammed, you will be, and if bitcoins are worth a lot, it will hurt now worse more than it ever has. You will hear people say, "I wish I bought when it was $200." The appropriate response is: "Bitcoin never goes up, only down."
Remember, in the aftermath of every price increase, is a deep regret from everyone who did not buy before the price increase. Do not live with regrets, just keep marching forward. We are here because Bitcoin as a technology works. If you don't belieb that the Bitcoin will only work if you get rich, you should probably get out. Because this is a very slow, long play.
Everyone who comes to Bitcoin now will come with an arrogance you will not realize you had when you came. You probably don't realize how much you have learned since you got here. Be kind, but be a dick. Now that you have seen it, you need to save the n00bs from giving their money away. Be highly critical of their wrongheaded ideas. Also, remember to point to history when they start to tell you all the ways in which they want to repeat it: "I don't think Bitcoin will work because... 10 minute transaction times... no one accepts it... it's too hard to use... it's not scalable... it's not anonymous enough... you can buy drugs with it... only criminals use it... Bitcoin companies are all scams... it has no intrinsic value... and on and on and on." For them we have a meme: http://imgur.com/t2sfuot
When all is said and done, many of you will have a lot more money than you have ever had before. Spend a little, have some fun. Hold the rest and save it for a rainy day, because Bitcoin could go to $0. You never know.
