I don't think it's dead. But I see it sliding some more and only then stabilizing.

Completely unrelated. Just wanted to let you know I got your PM, but couldn't reply. Looks like you have them disabled.

Thanks for the PM, I agree with you and that was quite the story you shared!

Well to be fair, when you started talking about Ethereum in this thread you first bought when it was above $400.

That’s ok....he also couldn’t get his rent amount right and he has claimed to have three totally different jobs.

At least he keeps his money in a 0.75% savings account!

It might be easier for poor little poorum if he didn’t have to tell so many lies to cover for the lies he’s already told (or continue to bolster his credentials with more make-believe qualifications and experiences). As quoted from Sir Walter Scott (in a quote often misattributed to Shakespeare), “Oh! what a tangled web we weave; when first we practice to deceive!”

Yep. Entered the Bullpen at $400.
But you forget laughing at me when it was sliding down to low $200's and I was buying all the dips?

So what is it? You have selective memory or going senile?

And remember when I said that the crypto crash is just the Canadian Housing market in fast forward?

Remember that too.

It's accelerating...

The Dow Jones losses are nothing compared to what’s happening to Bitcoin and Ethereum right now.

Just like the Dow Jones gains were nothing compared to what's happening in the Crypto market... BTC is still a 600% gain over February of last year


I just bought another 120VTC today :)

Oh no, Kreskin has still not identified that real estate has cycles......after years of predictions of a "crash", just like that old broken clock, he will claim that he is right when the inevitable downturn happens.

And in further news, I predict that it will start getting light outside really soon today. [icon_lol2.gif]


Just a quickie question though, cowkid.....what about the years of being flat out wrong.....including all the way to today? Remember that too. [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif]

When housing markets crash and correct, they tend to over correct.

Remember I said that too.

Great buying opportunity right now in the Crypto market.

Exactly. Which is why I didn't and don't gamble on crypto. It's gambling, not investing.
