Bitcoin gets first regulated US exchange - CNBC

The place for everything bitcoin!

Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no one in charge of bitcoin and it is made up of willing participants. Bitcoin gives you the option to be your own bank.

From April 22, 2015 FAQs Regarding Filing of Bankruptcy Claims by MTGOX Bitcoin Exchange Users

Q36: What are subordinate bankruptcy claims? A: Under the Japanese Bankruptcy Law, certain claims such as delay damages after the commencement of bankruptcy proceedings are given a subordinated status, meaning that they are subject to bankruptcy distribution after bankruptcy distributions of 100% of the ordinary bankruptcy claims are made, and they are referred to as subordinate bankruptcy claims. Delay damages accrue on a daily basis after the commencement of bankruptcy proceedings, but the amounts are not fixed, so Users file claims for delay damages (the actual amount of which is not yet fixed) as subordinate bankruptcy claims. In Japanese bankruptcy proceedings, there are almost no examples of bankruptcy distributions of subordinate bankruptcy claims, and in these proceedings too, it is not currently anticipated that such bankruptcy distributions will be made.
Thanks to the user that noticed this.
Edit: credit to u/bitdugo for spotting this.

Taxes: Bought N bitcoins in 2012 and ended up N-1 bitcoins in 2015 through exchanges, file capital losses, eh?

So I am wondering, If I never converted Bitcoin to USD, and I initially bought say N bitcoins. After a few years it is worth N-1 bitcoins. Then the government needs to give me 1 bitcoin for my capital losses, right?
What if this whole pump of Bitcoin is a conspiracy, the governments of the world is making that virtual coin go very up through pumps and dumps, so when it is tax seasons, we are forced to pay the equivalent USD value for capital gain.

REPOST from November 2015: "Forkology 301: The Three Tiers of Investor Control over Bitcoin - Tier 1: Expression of Intent; Tier 2: FORK ARBITRAGE ON EXCHANGES; Tier 3: Spinoff with New Hashing Algorithm" ~ u/ForkiusMaximus

This is one of the most important posts from u/ForkiusMaximus - and it is highly relevant today, now that exchanges (such as ViaBTC) have already started allowing investors to do "fork futures" or "fork arbitrage" trading - putting their money where their mouth is, to invest in Bitcoin-Cash versus Bitcoin-SegWit.
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/3t4kbk/forkology_301_the_three_tiers_of_investor_control/
Tier 2: Fork Arbitrage on Exchanges
This case is [...] only required if a change is too controversial for something like XT's 75% threshold to be relied upon. Here, several weeks/months before the fork is to occur, Bitcoin exchanges prepare futures contracts for, say, coins in Core and coins in XT, and let investors effectively sell their coins in Core to buy more coins in XT, or vice versa.
For example if you have 10 BTC, you would of course have 10 Core bitcoins and 10 XT bitcoins after the fork if you took no action, but if you choose to participate in the arbitrage you might sell your 10 future Core bitcoins and use them to increase your future XT bitcoin count to 15 or 20 BTC. Why would it ever be only 15 BTC? This would be the case where you entered the arbitraging late and Core bitcoin futures had already fallen to half the price of XT bitcoin futures, meaning your 10 Core BTC only buys you 5 XT BTC. [For more technical details, see Meni Rosenfeld's How I learned to stop worrying and love the fork, though he doesn't address the futures contract innovation, which further streamlines the process by giving a very strong indication of the winner before the fork even happens.]
In almost all conceivable cases a definitive winner emerges (and if not, no other method is going to do any better at determining the winner), and the other fork either dies or becomes a niche alt-protocol coin (not really an "altcoin," since it shares Bitcoin's ledger). The niche coin would likely only arise and persist if there truly were a key tradeoff being made, as some small block adherents argue. In any case, hodler purchasing power is completely preserved by default if they choose not to bet in the "forkbitrage" process, even in the event of a persistent split.
This forkbitrage process represents a more direct expression of investor will than in Tier 1. (Also, it may be possible that this process starting up would kick off Tier 1 effects that would allow the more radical measure of forbitrage to be halted early, with the exchanges returning investors' bets.)

Any book recommendations about cryptocurrency?

I have read two books about cryptocurrencies (or more specifically, Bitcoin):
Bitcoin Billionaires: A True Story of Genius, Betrayal and Redemption (Ben Mezrich, 2019). A story about how Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss's first heard about Bitcoin following their Facebook ordeal and then which then lead to them creating the Gemini exchange.
Bitcoin: The Future of Money (Dominic Frisby, 2015). An introduction to what Bitcoin is, how it came to be and where it is going (5 years old but still a great read and relevant in my opinion).
I really enjoyed both books and was wondering if anyone has any other books related to cryptocurrency they would like to recommend?

The case against lengthening cycles and my strategy moving forward.

If we look over historical data on coinmarketcap:
Bitcoin 2013 ATH occurred approximately December 04, 2013 at around $1,150.00
Bitcoin had an enormous wick down to below $180 on Jan 14, 2015, -85.4% from ATH, around 12.5 months after ATH.
After recovery seemed guaranteed, Bitcoin had another enormous wick down on Aug 24, 2015 to just below $200.00, around 19 months after ATH.
Bitcoin hit a second ATH almost exactly 4 years after the 2013 ATH, on Dec 17, 2017 at around $20,000. (100x from 2015 lows).
The low was hit almost exactly a year later, around $3200.00 on December 15, 2018, 84% down from ATH.
Now, this is where things get strange. I think a lot of whales were trying to frontrun the bull cycle, so they bought up a lot causing bitcoin to spike to 12k, dump, recover, and the second higher low occurred due to the covid black swan, some exchanges wicking as low as $3800 on Mar 12, 2020, about 27 months after ATH. If not for the 2019 front running, I believe this low would have been inevitable and would have occurred around the same time in the cycle as the 2013 cycle. Now that things have calmed down, let's see where we are in the cycle vs where we were in 2013.
On October 12, 2016, BTC was $637.78, 55.5% of the way back to its all time high. It slightly broke its all time high on Jan 4, 2017 before being strongly rejected, then it broke it again a month later before being rejected and finally on April 6th, 2017 it broke $1150 for the last time before the wild 20x to new, historical all time highs.
On october 12, 2020, btc is $11,659.00, exactly 58% of the way back to its all time high. We are at exactly the same distance from ATH as we were in 2016. Aside from outliers such as 2019 front running and covid crash, the cycle is exactly the same and if you were to trace the 2013 cycle on top of the 2017 cycle, we would be at about the same point.
I strongly believe we will be close to 20k at some point around December-January, get rejected for a few months, and then move onto new and historical highs.
I hedl throughout the 2017 bear market as I was introduced to crypto in mid 2017, just before subsequently making and losing more money than ive ever seen in my life. I've been DCAing into alts and BTC for 3 years. If I've learned one thing, its the further you can see into the past, the further you can see into the future. BTC cycles are not lengthening. My plan is to cash out 80% of my holdings, staggered at the peak sometime between November and February of 2021-2022 and then buy back in exactly 1 year later. I will keep 20% in BTC, XMR, ETH only in case of a black swan event such as hyperinflation while keeping my cash (taxes paid) on the sidelines waiting for the inevitable low around 1 year after the next all time high.
I am a believer of the 4 year cycle and there is nowhere near enough money in crypto to prevent it from happening again, at least one more cycle.
Tell me your thoughts in the comments. Who else has this strategy? If we time it right, we could all retire young. I have more money in crypto than ive ever had in my life and I just pretend it doesnt exist. Crypto is the only way I see in this crazy world with fractional reserve banking and money printing on a whim for young people to have the opportunity to get out of a life of wage slaving and enjoy the prosperity our ancestors enjoyed.
Good luck to all!
