All the Bitcoins ever mined are in only 1% of the Bitcoin addresses that have balances. Chances that you are a nocoiner = 99%

Bitcoin is the 1% rebranded.

Without liquidity "suckers" Bitcoin is usless to the early adopters.

http://www.investopedia.com/articles/04/042104.asp
The Scheme

As its name indicates, the pyramid scheme is structured like a pyramid. It typically starts with one person - the initial recruiter - who is on top at the apex of the pyramid. This person recruits a second who is required to "invest" a certain amount, which is paid to the initial recruiter. In order to make his or her money back, the new recruit must recruit more people under him or her, each of whom will also have to invest. If the recruit gets 10 more people to invest, he or she will make a profit with just a small investment.

Further, the new people become recruiters and each one is in turn required to enlist an additional 10 people, resulting in a total of 100 more people. Each of those new recruits is also obligated to pay their investment to the person who recruited him or her. Recruiters get a profit of all of the money received, minus their initial investment paid to the person who recruited them. The process continues until the base of the pyramid is no longer strong enough to support the upper structure, and there are no more recruits.

Is this site trustworthy? Am I reading this right?
Out of the top 100 addresses 60 have never had an outgoing transaction?

That seems really strange to me...

>>1689717
I thought so too. But of those 100 every single one is shown as having had an incoming transaction in 2016. Who the fuck would continue to put BTC into an inactive wallet?

>>1689613
I think it goes the other way. A lot of the richest addresses are probably just the same people opening different wallets to spread their risk out. I'd be very surprised if there's more than 50 owners among those 100 addresses. There's 21 wallets with an even 10k BTC in them and a bunch of other very even numbers higher up the list. It's obvious they're just distributed storage and not individual people. If there's no cost associated with opening a new wallet, there's essentially no reason to keep all your wealth in one place with very high risk of loss and tracability.

>>
>>1690260
change address is my guess. and right about the distribution. the number of addresses per individual goes up as the risk/value goes up.

this also ignores all the retail users' balances stored in shared addresses at places like coinbase.

that said there are defnitely thousands of users with 100+ bitcoins.

The shills absolutely *love* that picture. It's the easiest tell for someone you shouldn't take seriously. We had a time a few months back when there was always a thread up with that as OP. And when you confronted them about how it's cherry-picked bullshit they'd let the thread drop off and make another the next day.

Still don't know what they're getting out of it though. Shitcoins you can manipulate by roping a few idiots in, but BTC is far too big for that. It must be either pure memery or some sort of personal need for validation, because I can't for the life of me figure out a rational reason why anyone would aggressively shill BTC on here in almost 2017.

Not hard to believe. If I had that much BTC, 60% at minimum would be in a hardware wallet that had never been in contact with the internet, with the private key encrypted and hidden in plain sight in case the hardware wallet is lost or destroyed.
Nobody would accumulate that much in the first place unless they believed BTC's future would make 2013 look like a good time to buy.

When the people holding the bulk of the coins dump on you (which they will) then you will realize what it feels like to hold a bag of worthless crap.

What are you on about? I think BTC is sweet and being jealous of other peoples' gains is a path to certain madness. Hindsight's always 20/20. Do you look at the previous day's best performing stock and start getting angry and writing online posts about not having bought it? Fuck no, good on whoever saw the light and did!

That image is still cherry-picked bullshit btw. I can't find my old copypasta and I'm too lazy to type a new wall of text. The gist of it was: There's probably about a three times as long list of properties of currencies. They just took the ones that make BTC look good and even fudged a few of those: BTC is far from durable, no-where near as easily transactable as fiat and what the fuck does "smart (programmable)" even mean as a "trait of money"?

Like any other currencly BTC has some properties where it excells and some properties where it's god awful. Omitting the latter is ignorant (or malicious) shilling. A blockchain currency is not "objectively superior". It's simply *different* - superior in some aspects and inferior in others.

First off, you're quote mining. I said it's not *as* transactable as fiat, even though the image puts it in the same tier.

>There is a power outtage. Buy a flashlight with bitcoin.
>You're in a rush, but want to pick up food from a street vendor. Buy a snack in under 3 seconds with bitcoin.

Fiat works independently of circumstances and technology and is confirmably exchangable in 1 second. Bitcoin can't beat that.

Your turn to "kys", blind shill.
>>
>>1690260
>It's obvious they're just distributed storage and not individual people.

Correct. For companies, exchanges, organizations which actually represent 1000's of individuals. There's certainly some whales out there who own 10,000+ coins but to suggest the top 50 addresses are owned by 50 individuals is lunacy.

>>1690392
This.

It's also worth noting that when you spend from an address you reveal the public key. Unspent from addresses are technically more secure as "breaking in" would require both ECC + SHA256 to be broken simultaneously.

ECC alone breaking (before bitcoin abandons the algorithm) would tank bitcoin's value anyway so it's probably a moot point but if you're holding thousands of coins why not?

That's why you get in, make your gains, and leave the table :P. This is the second bitcoin cycle I've made bank on (First time bought in at $550, sold at $850, this time bought in at $700, Sold half today, will sell the other half once it hits 1k).

Don't get caught holding the bag, the problem is it's really hard to exercise self control or stick to a strategy when you're in the money. Now if bitcoin moons will I be annoyed? Sure. But the odds of it mooning to $1500 to me are lower than it crashing again.

Can't wait to see all the greedy coiner's coping, meanwhile smart coiner money has already handed off the bag.

Every time i send money to my wallet it generates a new one as a passthrough.

The amount of wallets in existence means absolutely nothing, because I could literally go generate millions of them right now.

These stats are extremely misleading.

You know what's not misleading?

Concentration of wealth amongst early adopters.

No one in this world builds things for the people.

They build it for money and power.

Why wouldn't they benefit more?

I like BTC but I see it as digital gold and a failure as a currency. You are not going to buy any of those things with BTC because the 1MB block size limit had pushed the fees for using it too high. Bitcoin can't compete with cash or debit cards, it is just for speculation and storing wealth.

IRS Fires Back In Coinbase Case As It Seeks Access To Bitcoin User Data

IF it is better than gold then you must remove gold from all of Bitcoin hardware infrastructure.

You cannot be better than something that you rely on.

I remember I bought 9000 bitcoin for $50 and forgot about the eallet

So that's where it went!

I like when bitcoiners make fun of fiat currency yet bitcoin is even more imaginary than anything. Bitcoin is literally backed by nothing but faith.
>>
>>1695775
with bitcoin you can buy other currencies through an exchange, for a fee of course

that's literally the only purpose or value that it provides

Lot of coping ITT

Just admit you knew about bitcoin and dismissed it because you lack foresight and or are retarded

The same lying Jewish press that only reported negative stories about Trump is either ignoring this recent rise or writing lies about it.

Either way Trump couldn't be stopped and neither can Bitcoin so keep coping in whatever way helps you sleep at night

I'm at the point where proving my Bitcoin wealth to some faggot on 4chan would do me more harm then the satisfaction that comes from it.

Gook moot has all the ip addresses of every post ITT, I dont want him selling my IP address to some wacko who would torture me until I give him my bitcoins

Nobody irl knows I own bitcoin and it's the best way. Success breeds jealously and contempt.

As everyone who is not completely ignorant about bitcoin knows, the number of possible addresses is practically infinite and generating an address is easier than taking a fart. In fact the use of multiple addresses and one time addresses for transactions is normal practice for many reasons. Hence it's only natural the large majority of addresses are empty.

The OP is literally equivalent to claiming the countless numbers of physical wallets decomposing in landfills prove fiat is unevenly distributed.

That word does not mean what you think it means. As a verb it is refers to obtaining the truth hidden in plain sight, not to being an ignorant fuckface that doesn't bother understanding in the slightest how stuff works. You're as blue as they get.

How is this surprising? Tons of people including me made accounts which we never used. Most of the people who actively use BTC now are probably in the 1%
>>
Bitcoin could crash 50% for all I care, until something really eats into its market share of the overall crypto market, Bitcoin will continue to bounce back.
>>
>>1696015
so much dust because not all the funds were used in the transfer.

Yeah, I get it, the only alternative is to transfer your whole wallet, let the other guy take payment then send it back. Even more retarded.

thank you based BTC

I dont really care if the 1% hold most of the BTC.. thats capitalism at work
>>
>>1696784
Then you don't really care about much at all do you?

All those BTC freedom fighters trying to be their own bank looking to upset the banking industry with blockchain.

They ended up becoming what they disliked.

They didn't change the system.

The system changed them.
>>
>>1696793
the point of bitcoin is to be a decentralised form of payment that you can perform digitally. it has value, thus distribution will be uneven and based on how early you adopted it, how much money you initially had to buy in, and how smart you were trading it. no one wants bitcoin to be some communist equal-oppotunity bs, if thats what it was it wouldn't be worth anything and it would have failed.
>>
>>1696882
But it's not decentralized.

The exchanges = centralized
The mining = centralized
The news = centralized
The main forums = centralized

All set in place to protect the image no matter what it takes.

How much you want to bet that the concentration of wealth indicated in the coin distro pic has anything to do with the centralization structure.

Decentralization wording was bait to attract cheerleaders.

It worked.
>>
>>1696898
doesnt matter, still more decentralised than the existing solutions. mining centralization is only an issue if something like bitcoin unlimited or some other miner-controlled fork of bitcoin comes into play. exchanges have to be centralized if you want high liquidity and fast fiat<=>crypto exchanges. "news" and "forums" arent centralized at all, people just go where the largest community is, which is the entire point of a discussion board.
>>
>>1689488
>All the Bitcoins ever mined are in only 1% of the Bitcoin addresses

Yeah... this setup makes sure that NO ONE can manipulate or exploit the pricing of bitcoins.

The entire bitcoin game is about pumping up the price so the 1% can then trade their bitcoins for actual fiat currency.
>>
>>1696950
and why wouldnt you want a piece of that action, exactly? this is /biz/ not /ussr/
>>
>>1696950
This setup makes sure that THEY can manipulate the pricing and that THEY can then trade their bitcoins for actual fiat currency.

You haven't noticed that the IRS is showing up just in time for this pump?

They (1%) are now cornered.

You want to be cornered with them and the fake programmed market?

Go ahead.

Now let's take those cope-vision glasses off and see what it's like to transact bitcoin in real life:

>open up wallet app

>thank you!

>>1698187
The thing about play money is no one will notice when it disappears.

BTC was designed so that a certain sector of the population could use it.

They were only trying to target a certain group to pay them off.
>>
>>1696020
>Remember last time it hit 1k?
That time it took 1 month to hit 1k.

This time it's taking 16 months.

If you can't tell the difference, then god help you.
