I am disappointed. This board is full of shills and idiots who wanna put their money into yet another bubble.
Didn't you get it? Another shillcoin won't make you rich. Get a fucking job or start a decent business.
Or explain why ETH is something new and what's the difference from Ripple or Stellar or shitloads of analogs.
Lol research it or go fuck yourself.
I can't be bothered to explain it to a nocoiner.
You probably laughed at us when we told you to buy even before christmas.
Now you want someone to talk you in to buying
Or you want to argue with someone so you can pretend you won the argument to feel better about missing out.
Here you go, heres a video an hour long from the inventor of ethereum explaining what it is and what sets it apart from other cryptocurrencies
Actually watch it. I mean actually sit down and watch the whole thing.
Good ideas don't necessarily always come out on top. This is a pretty fundamental idea in business. You could have the best idea in the world and it wouldn't necessarily go anywhere.
Ordinarily I would agree with you, but currently Ethereum is replacing bitcoin after some pretty awful technical failures on bitcoin's part. So all the money in bitcoin is permanently flocking to ethereum
Technical failure as in the protocol itself is broken and can't be fixed, not your market fuckery. It has massive issues with miner centralization and poor scalability that have finally reached the point where they're killing the cryptocurrency off. They can't be fixed without a blockchain fork either, so everyone is moving their money over to Ethereum which is much better designed.
>this board is full of shills
well, if you ignore unrealistic alternative currencies and watch for actual advice on long term investing then /biz/ is just fine.
among the most overused words on this board. the team behind ethereum a) couldn't afford to pay people full time to spam boards with content and b) wouldn't need to either, the skyrocketing price is more hype than they bargained for
everyone realizes its a bubble. the whole fucking economy is a giant bubble made of bubbles. people are naturally going to be curious about bubbles that will be most profitable for them. you on the other hand are an idiot, because you suggest
>get a fucking job
most of us either already have jobs or are in school.
>start a decent business
terrible idea for profit and personal well being. from the bureau of labor statistics:
>About half of all new establishments survive five years or more and about one-third survive 10 years or more.
even IF your business is successful, you'll be working all day, every day. and you could only be technically successful if you are breaking even every year or dip into the red from time to time. even if you turn a profit, you won't be getting something absurd like a 100%, 200% return on your investment, or even more if you put down money when the buzz was just simmering in dec or early jan.
but i agree with you that ETH and other coin enthusiasts are drinking a little too much kool-aid. you are also an idiot however, because you should understand fundamentals can have absolutely no relationship with stock price. i know this isn't a stock, but the speculation dynamic is still there. doesn't matter whether ETH is an analog or the real deal, a large enough herd of bulls can make the price rocket or tank in the space of hours.
Heh, it is just starting off.
>because everybody is buying ETH and BTC will become obsolete?
They will still have to buy their CP
BTC has first mover advantage and it has limited supply. It is like comparing apples to oranges.
I need to buy something quickly and can't be bothered going through wallet > exchange > wallet > payment
shit takes too long. Also I wanna put the price to 0.014 because I thought it was 0.15x
Bitcoin gets shit on from every direction. Most of their community are lunatics and straight up assholes. The current developers have severe autism/ego issues and they're willing to destroy the coin because they lack basic communication skills. I'm sick of Bitcoin.
No it does not. It exchanges ether for USDT - USD - TETHER. This is former Realcoin it and every USDT is backed by a $.
USDT is used by exchanges to eliminate the colatility of bitcoins. Without bitcoins no USDT without bitcoins you cant buy ether so as you see were quite a circular little pickle here arent we.
Dude, there are already people who are millionaires in just ETH. And it isn't even mainstream..
Fine, put your money into some boring ETF or mutual fund that will make you 5% if you're lucky over 1 year.
ETH just made 800% in a few days. It's like heroin.
>real investments are "boring"
>some unknown shit made 800% in a few days
That's not a good sign you fucking moron, god you kids are intolerable. Now look, people are now shilling some OTHER shit now that the ETH bubble is popping, I fucking despise you disgusting underhanded NEET bastards you can all die a swift death with no funeral.
I only put $30 into ETH to test the water last night, glad it wasn't more.
>ETH just made 800% in a few days. It's like heroin.
No it did not.
Why do you even try to lie about this? There are charts, documented history, anyone can just go look and see you are full of shit.
Or are you eth loving retards too stupid to understand basic math?
>That's not a good sign you fucking moron
Haha, get fucked. I just made 800% and cashed out. That's tangible, physical, liquid cashiola pouring into my bank account. Have another few hundred ETH to see how far this goes but I'm happy with what I've made so far.
Anyway, put your money where your mouth is, like I am. Go buy your S&P500 ETF which has just shed 10%.
Yeah fine, that's very cute. I'm a little busy collecting on pure profit, but don't let me stop you from buying some legacy investments that will make nothing for at least another 6 months.
>babby's first investment
Good for you! Maybe now you can upgrade to real markets which need research and intelligence before putting money in, as opposed to blind luck and speculation from 150 neckbeards on the internet.
Daily reminder: Your memecoin can only be bought with BTC (KING) coin.
What time span? What %?
Better yet go google it yourself and see that memecoins have a lot of competition in the high risk high reward market. Most other things even have actual value aside from rampant speculation.
If you look at the bigger picture of actual coin distribution. You will see it needs to become more equal. Need to get a high enough price that will tempt these whales to sell.
And it is the whales responsibility to sell as much as they can over the $6 price. Otherwise the distribution will get more unequal.
In the last 2 months the number of ethereum addresses has doubled.
Also, a good way to get eth is to earn it. Accept it as payment. It's fully programable money. It's actually a very powerful tool. It is inherently valuable as it is the most technologically advanced form of money in the world. There are infinite possibilities.
ethereum and bitcoin sure are scams. but doge is a real deal everybody knows this
