Here's a scenario that I am in:

I owe my dad $3000 for a legal payment. I convinced him to buy $500 in LINK when it was relatively cheap which is now worth over $4000. He did take the financial risk, but he never would have made that money without me. Should I try to skirt out of the debt?

>> No.20439152

he didn’t sell though. furthermore his friend never paid him at all, so there was never any debt to collect. Implying there was ever debt creates liability because it implies there was an agreement over the ownership of $1000 worth of LINK.

What really happened was OP used his own funds to buy LINK. Full stop. There was never any agreement and never any payment, only talk, which didn’t go anywhere because his friend never provided the funds

>> No.20439158

OP is safest if he says something like

>oh finally i lost ur number. dude u owe me money for that! you never paid me the initial a year ago even after i asked u several times. i was forced to sell at a loss to recover my funds. you owe me a 200 hundred dollars bro heres my bank details:

he will never chase this up again. the alternative is that op risks this idiot going on a suicidal lawsuit

>> No.20439159

Like I said in the post under yours, I just refuse to believe he thinks he's gonna get ANY money from OP. That's probably also why he didn't wait for a response to demand the $18k.

>> No.20439162

Word of advice from me, I'd say you sold it and have only $100 or something in it now. When did the Binance thing happen with link, can't remember. But when that happened I had about $25k in usdc that i used straight away to get more link. I have over 30k now. I wasn't here for the cheap under a dollar link, all my buys were around 1-2 dollar.

I work with a few guys who know about crypto, some are invested and some aren't, but they know. Anyways I let slip to one of them that I had 10k link. I seem him a couple weeks back and he's link, links doing well huh. (this was before the pump over the last month). Now, I told him I sold it all and I have weak hands. I don't. I still have all of it and my stinky linkies will remain stinky until $1000 and even then I'm only cashing out 2 mil. I'll see him in a few weeks again, and I'm sure he'll say something like 'oh I bet you wish you kept that eh' and I'll be like yeah, I wish I never sold.

I'm telling you that you need to say this, cause that cunt will hunt you down in the future. The guys I'm working with would do it too. Constantly hassle you for money and they would try to fuck you up. Same if you won the lotto. You never tell anyone, you go disappear on your own after setting up your family, if you have one.

My Blockfolio works on percentages too, so the total balance is low from someone that doesn't know what it is. But I know the true value. I'd never have it showing the true amount just incase I'm using my phone around someone and they see all my real investments.

Okay OP do this.

If you decide to talk, act as if you haven't checked the price in a while and act gutted as if you sold, say you sold after a small dump and incurred a little loss. Say things are a little tough but if he wants to invest can he send you the $200 he owes you as you made a loss of $200 on the trade and then whatever he wants to go in again.

Pester him about the $200 and keep saying things like we can make lots of money on the next one I swear there's options to leverage our money x20 it's foolproof. Act like a degen gambler that needs money to fund the habit and make sure you flaunt 0 wealth in front of him.

If he does see you in a few years driving a lambo say you should have reinvested I got really lucky with a x125 leverage trade. If he is stupid enough to send you more money immediately lose it on a trade and apologize and ask for more. That should shatter any ties you have to him so you can live your life in peace away from him and he will think you are a gambling addict.

One of the key requirements of a valid contract is called "Consideration" which is basically the party fronting something to show that they are committed to the contract.
If he gave OP $1 as a "deposit" that would at least allow an argument in court that he had provided consideration. The court would almost certainly find the consideration to be insufficient, but at least there would be an angle.
But having given no money it would be a 5 minute hearing. No consideration, no contract. That's first year undergrad shit.

I went to college, held 2 jobs, got a decent career, bought a house, am now engaged. He has just been working at his parent's dive bar unable to get a loan to buy it because he has no credit, no money, and no collateral. Needless to say, we slowly drifted apart due to different career goals, friend groups, and available times to even see each other (he works weekends and late into the night). He started inviting me out to his bar to 'hang out' which I have done multiple times over the past year or two. The first few times I went I thought it was pretty cool, he would hook me up with free drinks the whole night and we would chat at his bar with some other mutual friends. After the first few visits, he started talking about tipping and how you should always tip a minimum $10 no matter what the tab is, and more if you spend a lot of time there or have a really large tab. He said even if you order a single drink at a bar, you should tip the bartender $10. I obviously thought this was bullshit, but didn't let it piss me off too much because he was my friend and struggling financially.

Well anyway, I ended up buying a house, getting engaged, getting a dog, etc. All that normal 'life' shit. Constantly invited him over to hang out over the past 2 years and every time it was supposed to happen he flaked out or couldn't make it. The final straw was me texting him a few weeks ago and he had totally forgotten about my engagement and wedding. I've been with the same girl for 9 years and we all know each other.

Basically, the guy views me as nothing but a paycheck. Zero effort on his part to actually maintain the relationship.Worst part is it took me so long to realize it.

The only thing that you should put in writing is that you bought link for yourself that you would have sold him if he sent you the money. Since he never paid you, he never bought it.

If he bad mouths you to friends it’s the same story. You hit him up multiple times, but he never bought.

This would be very dumb to admit. From what the OP said, he agreed to buy the LINK for later payment. If he admits he bought the LINK, then his friend can potentially just say that this is an issue of late payment which he has offered to remedy by discounting the current value of his purchase with interest.

Also, if OP says he sold at a loss, he will be obliged to provide a paper trail to prove this if it goes to court (via discovery).

OP this is hilarious wtf is wrong with normies. I remember when I finally went all in on Chainlink mid 2018. I immediately told my best friend at the time all about smart contracts, oracles, and all the research I had done up until that point. I was obsessed(reading 4-8 hours a day sometimes on blockchain and LINK) and basically felt like I found a lotto ticket valid in a few years for millions. I didn't get over emotional with him just gave him the straight facts.

I was so excited to share my knowledge with people I cared about, and then I got red pilled hard. I was explaining smart contracts and all he replied with was "well, those are some words." I assumed he didn't quite understand it but I tried again and told him I'd show him how to set it up and even $1000 invested could be life changing in 3-5 years. It was hovering around .20-.25. He could have had 4000-5000 LINK.

What he said next reminded so much of OP's story. My friend said verbatim. "How about you invest $1000 for me and if it does well I'll give you the $1000." He literally wanted me to take the risk but give him the profits. Lmao

I never mentioned crypto or investing to him again until he asked me about 6 months ago how I was paying my bills recently without working. I just said short term trading and long term investments. He gave me this look of despair as he was getting ready for work. Lmao He doesn't talk to me much anymore

This. A contract isn't just a piece of paper, it can be verbal too. Stick to the truth which is you never received his investment stake despite asking, so he never made an investment. Ignore the not-turning-up-to-a-party shit, that's emotive and has no bearing on what is essentially a failed (from his side) business transaction.

That said, it's a nice thought knowing that he's out there walking around like he's got $18k heading his way.

I put in a little over half my savings when I decided to go all in on LINK back in early 2018, when everything was tanking. My thought process was "if it goes to zero, oh well. I've got the rest of my life to make it back." I had never made an investment that risky before, but I believed in the project and realized everyone that's ever made it in life has taken a risk where there was a high probability of failure. Anyone who thinks they're entitled to anything without putting in any work or risk is a useless nigger who deserves nothing.

This. OP bought *himself* more Chainlink tokens. He chased his friend up for the money before attempting to purchase his friends allotment to avoid being left holding the bag. OP's friend did not send any money so OP did not buy any on his behalf. OP's friend failed to uphold his side of the transaction.
