    Been waiting on that XRB Binance listing for weeks. They list it in the midst of a crash.

    So much for that pump.

    I've been casually following this thread for the last few weeks and decided to put some "casino" money in last night during the crash.

    As of this second I've just made back my transaction fees. Boooring...When is the fun supposed to start?

    Just wait a few weeks. It is a roller coaster of a ride.

    FB wasn't invented until 4 years after the dot com bubble burst.

    I don't think many people were high on Amazon or Google during those times.

    I do think that this is a bubble but I think that it is very different from the dot com bubble.

    There's a lot of fear with the SEC addressing crypto recently but we might also be seeing the end of every crypto being dependent on the price of btc.

    Maybe proof of work will eventually be obsolete and proof of stake is the future? Ethereum has been relatively stable throughout all of this compared to other coins.

    You will have to add USD pairings for every crypto for that to be a reality.

    Yep, as long as coinbase is the big exit/entry then the whole market will be affected by btc.

    Usd pairings might not be far away though. I havent been paying much attention lately but isnt bittrex trying to add some usd pairings?

    They are, but I think that might be related to the tether fallout. Hopefully more exchanges dump tether and allow deposits/withdrawals. I don't know if Bittrex is planning to allow withdrawals? I would hope so if they are allowing deposits.

    Yes, but whether it happens at 3 trillion mcap or 800 billion is a big difference, ya know?

    Short term miss, my friend. It will likely shoot up once this bear is settled. Equity markets are starting to be wobbly at the knees. Perhaps investors will seek shelter in the cryptos.

    Just an idea for you guys:

    I got into WABI earlier yesterday at $1.88. Not the same, but similar business as WTC, and our retirement golden goose, VEN.

    What I most like about WABI? Reasonable supply of coins and Chinese company === sucker could really moon this fall.

    This thread is way less active because we have a discord. But nice try. You played yourself.
