I know most of you are new. I'm coming to terms with the 'old /biz/fags and /biz/raelis' having already left the building. This market will not always deliver when you want it to. It is a bubble right now. You have lived through a substantial portion of it's runoff and deflation, even if (as I suspect) you bought around December and January. There are no other bubbles in history that can really come close to crypto because technology is different than other assets. The DotCom bubble is the only comparable bubble. I emplore you to take a look at it, and to take a look at it's first ATH, look at it's market cap at that point, and look at where it is today. I want to appeal a little differently now.The DotCom bubble today has given us the ability to communicate with people around the world for free (something you ALL take for granted), instantly find verified and certified information at anytime, on anything, for free (It destroyed the Encyclopedia Britanica, a previously multi thousand dollar publication that had over 30 volumes). We can play video games against people halfway around the world for free, and create virtual workspaces and offices that exist solely on the internet for free. The only thing we can't do for free is send money. Until Crypto.
Just one word: internal blockchains. Sorry, mr. bagholder.
>>8625229Noe this was indeed a short thread
>>8625229The point is to replace the banks, not have them develop blockchain.Good point, it's just a little off what we're talking about here.
>>8625194>The only thing we can't do for free is send money.I can do it for free in Europe, it just takes 1-2 days.BTC can do it faster, but it is not free. Median transaction time equals about $0.50. Which makes it unusable for being a "Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System".

>>8625256>The point is to replace the banks, not have them develop blockchain.When will people start to understand, that we have these institutions for a fecking reason?
>>8625256No we're just going to have crypto banks. There's nothing wrong with that either, banks exist because they provide a valuable service to society. Good luck making the money they do on something that is truly worthless.
>>8625194Your whole dream burst at that point when in future banks and govs will create their own blockchains as they get the top engineers and professionals into their team, therefore it will kill all these fucking shit coins, literally everyone, expect BTC and XMR maybe.

>>8625332Yes large companies and governments are always at the forefront of emerging tech. Innovators love working in hierarchies and attending 8 hour meetings where some middle manager struggles to understand basic concepts. Must be nice to be this complacent.

>>8625194Syscoin decentralized marketplace is also something unique made possible by blockchain. Fact is that privacy money is not necesarry at all, nobody needs that. Theres plenty of groundbreaking usecases for blockchain. Private money isnt one of them.
>>8625414>>8625353What you fail to understand, this is not the same anarchic environment that crypto is geared towards by its nature. When running a node in crypto, you have nothing to do with random drug dealers and pedophiles that might be using it, so you need a strong incentive. The system also needs extreme decentralization because every node is essentially anonymous and unknown. In an institutional setting, everyone knows who they interact with, everyone can see who is who, and the possibility of hijacking the whole network is simply unrealistic. As long as there is no centralized point of failure, interbank and cross-institution distributed ledgers are going to work just fine without the need for publicity.
>>8625480I am familiar with the first documentary. There is an important point raised, which is that the speed of acceleration in the DotCom bubble, including the reason it was able to reach up to a 10 Trillion mcap, was due to the new technologies that allowed money to move faster and cheaper than before.
>>8625540Who did you transport money for?
>>8625274Not if you live in uk, work in Eurostan, and get paid in euros. You have to accept (((their))) shitty exchange rate, and then pay a transaction fee. This is the exact reason why crypto will solve traditional financial problems.
>>8625613>This is the exact reason why crypto will solve traditional financial problems.So you have problems with friction loss, because you need to move in between two currencies.You want too solve this problem by adding another currency?
>>8625613Anon, i'm very glad that you called them 'problems', because very few people that I know call fees, wait times, and exchange rates "problems". It would not be a mistake to bank on a future that did away with all that. Just don't count on Bay Street/Wall Street/The City's support.
I just soiled myself ladsoh man it smells real bad too
>>8625613That problem will be solved by interbank distributed ledgers in the upcoming years. So yeah, the underlying engine of crypto will solve these problems, but not crypto per se.
>>8625424>>8625424early adopters, in there before it was invented
>>8625229Honest question, what would be the point of an internal blockchain that can't already be done with existing technology?
>>8625778>Honest question, what would be the point of an internal blockchain that can't already be done with existing technology?Nothing. All of this was about monopoly money.
>>8625754by percentile, early adopter phase is over, although not until 2016/2017. When the dust has settled on this, Bitcoin will still have been profitable, and that's all that's going to matter. Anyone who bought in prior to the floor of this (honestly very modest shedding) will have purchased at profit max of many early adopters. The cycle repeats gentlemen.
What about a decentralized oracle?
>>8625778Public blockchains are controlled by unknown entities from countries like China, you typically have to pay node operators for processing transactions and smart contracts, and public networks are almost certainly used by money launders (as well as the fact that any of the coins and utility tokens can be converted anonymously). In other words, an internal ledger suits their need more than enough.
>>8625194The graph seems a bit off if you take inflation into account.
>>8625778Absolutely nothing. An "internal blockchain" is just called a ACID-compliant database, and we've had those for decades.The whole point of a distributed blockchain is that people can essentially write to a global database in a way that doesn't require trust. If the system is internal to a company or agency, trust is implied.
>>8625194What kind of retarded image is that?>DotCom bubble popped at 10 trillion therefore Crypto is going to 10 trillion
>>8625966That was not the point at all. You are a moron.
>>8625936I didn't say "internal to a company". I said internal to an industry or a group of organizations. It makes sense simply because you won't have to pay to shady node operators from China (but not only because of that)

>>8626047REQ doesn't solve anything at all because it doesn't solve the money laundering problem.

Maybe 2007 did not do to you what it did to many. If it is not ignorance, it's because you were too young, but please never forget why we have all this crypto stuff.
>>8626372Then go and prove me wrong. Any utility token by default is part of the anonymous crypto ecosystem. It can be freely and anonymously exchanged for any other coin. Anti-money-laundering regulations are the reason why financial institutions don't integrate crypto and why in order to buy crypto for fiat, you're required to verify you identity. Whether your token is more convenient than the rest doesn't play a role.
>>8626434Then prove me wrong. Your co-brainlets ITT were unsuccessful by far.
>>8626462>It can be freely and anonymously exchanged for any other coin.so what?
>>8626566It means it's a potential avenue for money laundering. When a financial institution redeems a crypto token for fiat, the origin of the money cannot be traced, it can be some drug or stolen money. That's why they're very reluctant to deal with crypto. Anti-money-laundering regulations are extremely tough in the West.
>>8626085>They cost money to maintain. It's cheaper to use general purpose blockchains, even for private companiesNot really. A centralised database cluster is a lot more maintainable and has lower storage and running costs and is faster. Aside from the fact that software that utilises SQL servers is widely available and so such software exists for blockchains. Just due to the number of write commits blockchains have to be slower. Sorry.I don't think you have every worked in enterprise IT where shit actually has to work and you are not pricking around. Internal blockchains add no value, are slower and more expensive to run than database clusters. They are literally useless. Public blockchain are not, smartcontracts are not but private blockchains are fucking garbage.
>>8626646>why they're very reluctant to deal with cryptoThey are reluctant to deal with crypto because it has too volatile an exchange rate.
>>8626128there are parts of every program that won't scale by 'throwing more hardware' at it.
>>8626646so what?in the end the person has to show proof where he got the money.no proof from you = buttfucking by Feds incoming>That's why they're very reluctant to deal with crypto. thats wrong, they are reluctant because its not yet clearly defined which crypto is a security and which one is a utility. however these are the questions getting solved soon enough as literally every country that matters is absolutely bullish on crypto as a whole.
>>8626367>It looks like mooning to the infinityThe current state of the stock markets, bond markets and government debt does not make a case for crypto. They can be fucking garbage and in a bubble to you know. If the USD fluctuated as widely as BTC or ETH it would have limited use as a currency too. The fact that drug dealers use BTC and ransomware are forced to use it on the perception it is anonymous when it is not really just shows you how well regulated conventional payment systems are and that drug dealers are forced to use something else, not that BTC is in its own right superior, its not as anyone why went to launder their BTC into fiat or physical at the market peak discovered. BTC was inferior in transaction feels and it was so volatile that even buying a brick of gold involved constant communication with the seller..
>>8626684Your post completely misses the point. We're not talking about single-use blockchains, which are indeed pointless. Read >>8625554 >>8625880. You're wrong.>>8626717That also holds true, but in a different perspective
>>8626833>Your post completely misses the point. We're not talking about single-use blockchains, which are indeed pointless. ReadNote I said clusters. Database clusters. If you have woked on such systems you will know at every level there is multiple redundancy. Further they facilitate disk reads an writes via fibre channel. Database and data are all about fast reads and writes. Your solution to create a private blockchain is not even in the races in performance and you cannot concentrate your best technology under it, as it is by nature distributed. Further network failures, cutting of branch offices or routing loops or whatever the fuck will still result in two subnets with wildly out of synch blockchains. Internal blockchains are a shit solution to a problem no one has.
>>8625424you know how everyone can tell that youre a newfag larping brainlet?youre too fucking lazy or stupid (or both) to even google when cryptocurrencies were invented. now fuck off, kid.
>>8626809>in the end the person has to show proof where he got the money.Easier said than done. The mere fact that it can happen is already a huge risk for fiat institutions. Money laundering is the biggest controversy around crypto, and there is no easy work-around.>they are reluctant because its not yet clearly defined which crypto is a security and which one is a utilityThe point is, crypto as a security and crypto as a utility is nothing but legal yada-yada, because they're essentially the same. In the end it boils down to the lowest common denominator. Which means, if some crypto can be used for bad things, then every crypto can, because they're all part of the same ecosystem.
>>8626917The distributed ledger provides objective benefits over database clusters, the very same benefits that we have in crypto. Except that you can limit your ledger to a limited number of known, verified participants.>Further network failures, cutting of branch offices or routing loops or whatever the fuck will still result in two subnets with wildly out of synch blockchains. Not really. If a node is out of sync, it's out of sync and can't fork itself. There's always protection against such things like forking, I don't see it as too much of an issue.>Internal blockchains are a shit solution to a problem no one has.Like interbank transfers?
>>8625194The Dot Com Bubble was limited to the USA, not to the whole world like crypto, right?
>>8626917One more note on speed: notice that banks show an interest in fast DLT like Ripple, which means that the disk IO concerns obviously have a solution
>>8625194The internet isnt free, both in money and politically

you're wrong because the internet is a more revolutionary technology than cryptocurrency. When companies realized the potential internet can have on business they were starting shit companies with a website and 3 employees and getting valued at tens of millions. This is because the internet does have an extreme impact on business the likes of which was never seen before, companies just jumped into it too early at the dot com bubble and failed to focus on building real businesses. Crypto is a smaller bubble in comparison because the technology is not as revolutionary.
also the internet didnt just allow us to communicate "for free", it completely changed how/why/when/ we can communicate and literally changed the lives of hundreds of millions of people. Comparing the internet to crypto is retarded. The internet is 100x the invention and still produced a bubble
>>8627367>oh Mr smart figured out a way to launder significant amounts of money through crypto.>why don't you go ahead and do it then?Because it's already been done without me?http://www.businessinsider.com/europol-criminals-using-cryptocurrency-to-launder-55-billion-2018-2>you don't even need crypto to launder illegal money you brainlet, its even better to do it without because crypto leaves too much of a trail.>for retarded brainlets maybe who missed the point. but yea really smart move to have all your illegal transactions on a public ledger.How long have you been in crypto? Since December? There's a shit ton of ways to anonymize your funds: bitcoin and ethereum mixers, Monero/Dash, using offshore exchanges etc. It's very easy.>no brainlet the legal framework is actually very very important otherwise the wallstreet money can't enter.Can you disprove the fact that in practice no token is really different from bitcoin and monero because they can be converted one to another and passed through a bunch of mixers?
>>8625194I don't doubt it can go much higher, but comparing blockchains to the internet is ridiculous. The internet is far more significant than blockchains ever will be.
>>8625194Should we be able to send money for "free" I don't think the Internet of money should be completely feeless maybe instant but not feeless. Vitalik agrees as well from that YouTube video. It's just economics. Now this fee can be cheap like .5 REQ or something but still needs to be a fee.
>>8627506>Because it's already been done without me?and you think there is no investigation running? you think interpol, feds etc. sit around and do nothing? lol okay, tell that to the silk road dude who gets fucked by niggers in his ass everyday.>There's a shit ton of ways to anonymize your fundsso what can you buy that does not raise questions by local authorities?>How long have you been in crypto?since 2010>Can you disprove the fact that in practice no token is really different from bitcoin and monero because they can be converted one to another and passed through a bunch of mixers?why is this a problem?

You're full of shit, dude.>why is this a problem?It's a problem because financial institutions don't want to redeem bitcoin for fiat. Payment systems like PayPal and AliPay completely banned crypto purchases. Yet you think that just because one particular token has a very fancy appeal, they'll embrace it "because it's classified differently". When in practice, it's not different from bitcoin. What a bunch of wishful thinking.
Aren't solid blockchain projects kinda building a new layer for the existing internet, hence public blockchains will become a substantial part of the internet?And if there are private blockchains, they are akin to an intranet?

>Oh no, Pesos are used by drug cartels and exchanged for dollars, looks like we can’t accept dollars or pesos anymore!!!!!! Only 1% of BTC transactions are related to DNMs now. Monero is likely higher but can be deanonymized 50% of the time. I expect regulations to reduce monero’s use dramatically

They DON'T need crypto. Crypto is anarchy, it's fundamentally incompatible with the financial world.

There will be regulations on anonymous currencies, guaranteed. If using monero or zcash won’t be strictly illegal in the future it will definitely become an auditable event. USD cash is used for illegal activities but it’s accepted in almost every major bank across the world. It’s estimated that an average of 50% of every currency is used for illegal purposes (http://scholar.harvard.edu/files/rogoff/files/c13431.pdf))Whether you like it or not, cryptocurrency is faster, cheaper and more flexible than traditional currency, especially with smart contracts.
>>8628748it's not "free" if you have to spend a lot of bucks for the receiver
>>8628692>yes it is, good indication that something shady is going on opening up reasons for investigations.So if they're going to automatically monitor each and every transaction if it comes from an "unverified" place, they don't need crypto. It's too much of a burden. Which proves my point.>its the other way around, fiat shit is anarchy while crypto is not. That is bullshit, crypto is an anarchic (anarcho-capitalist) invention from the start. DLT, on the other hand, can be applied in more conventional settings.>some of your wallets are tied to your name by exchanges and their verification*some*>its really not brainlet, you really think no analytical tools exist?You're the essence of a deluded December buyer who doesn't understand why cryptography is powerful (and dangerous)>the moment it touches one of the approved exchanges and they see it comes from a shady source they will simply freeze your funds until you explained yourself.What I said in the first paragraph
>>8628788>regulations on anonymous currenciesThat is not feasible, alas.>cheaper and more flexible than traditional currency, especially with smart contracts.I can foresee interbank blockchains doing that.
>>8627680>It's a problem because financial institutions don't want to redeem bitcoin for fiat. Payment systems like PayPal and AliPay completely banned crypto purchases. Yet you think that just because one particular token has a very fancy appeal, they'll embrace it "because it's classified differently". When in practice, it's not different from bitcoin. What a bunch of wishful thinking.REQ = GATEWAYS why do you think it gets shilled here everyday? there is OMG as well idk. req will offer say amazon the ability to not have to even own req neither buying nor seller has to own req and pay/receive any currency they choose some negatives would be its reliance on eth if it doesnt figure out scaling but i think it will also depend on the success of being able to get data from the outside world onto the blockchain through api's hence ChainLink so funds could be held in the smart contract until proof of delivery.
>>8628812>they don't need cryptobut they do because crypto makes it even easier for them. one world currency my dude.>It's too much of a burdennope, technology is advancing and so is the tech to monitor its complex structures>That is bullshit, crypto is an anarchic (anarcho-capitalist) inventionevery transaction is forever in the public ledger for everyone to see, literally giving maximum control to everyone to monitor everything.>*some*and as soon as they touch other wallets/forbidden currencies you get fucked in the ass.>cryptography is powerful (and dangerous)nothing dangerous about it brainlet
>>8627901>he was still in his mother's vagina in 2014
>>8629047>but they do because crypto makes it even easier for them. one world currency my dude.Crypto as a "one world currency" is a crippled, flawed solution that only pleases bagholders like you. It's like taking a man, cutting off his cock and calling him a woman.>nope, technology is advancing and so is the tech to monitor its complex structuresYada-yada>every transaction is forever in the public ledger for everyone to see, literally giving maximum control to everyone to monitor everything.Just because that is true doesn't mean that there is just one single chain and no convenient means of anonymization. Start your research with how mixers work and then get on to Monero>and as soon as they touch other wallets/forbidden currencies you get fucked in the ass."Forbidden currencies", LMAO. What a bunch of fancy bullshit. Proves my point again, one doesn't need crypto if one is a control freak. By the way, crypto can be bought and sold peer-to-peer, which means all your transactions never hit a verified exchange wallet.>nothing dangerous about it brainletEverything that is encrypted is dangerous, that's why the feds opposed the cypherpunks bank in the day. But you, being a decemberfag, don't even know what I'm talking about.

>>8629248>Crypto as a "one world currency" is a crippled, flawed solutionits the next step in the evolution of money, its a better solution to what we have now.>Yada-yadajust because you close your eyes and ears does not mean that tech is not advancing.>Just because that is true doesn't mean that there is just one single chain and no convenient means of anonymization. doesn't matter because you would leave other traces, you can't hide your shady business from the government. they find ways to bust you don't worry, but if you don't believe me go and build up your criminal monero empire and see yourself.>"Forbidden currencies", LMAOonce they can link your income to anonymous coins coming from unknown sources they will look deeper into the case and bust you, its really simple and no mixer will help you.>By the way, crypto can be bought and sold peer-to-peerso what? at some point you want to buy something on your gains. thats when they will catch you.why do you pretend that you are invisible to the system when you are actually not.>Everything that is encrypted is dangerousno its not, a simple keylogger and a backdoor in your router/some app is enough to get your asshole fucked by FBI/Interpol.also the fact still stands that every government that matters is bullish on crypto. deal with it.

>>8629448>its the next step in the evolution of money, its a better solution to what we have now.Institutions don't need anarchist, uncontrolled and manipulated money. The better solution for them is using DLT based on the crypto tech, not crypto itself.>just because you close your eyes and ears does not mean that tech is not advancing.You can't break cyphers. There are, you know, the laws of math. No fancy analyst can help that.>can't hide your shady business from the government>find ways to bust you don't worry>link your income to anonymous coins>thats when they will catch you.>get your asshole fucked by FBI/Interpol.All this proves how much of a hassle it is for them to deal with crypto. So much additional risk and tracking expenses. Tends of thousands of personnel.. Why? Just to please some bagholders? Get real.>also the fact still stands that every government that matters is bullish on crypto. deal with it.They can't be bullish or bearish by definition. They can be more or less accepting of crypto as a phenomenon, have an open mind to new technologies, but this does not necessarily lead to adoption of any kind.

>>8630512You're just butthurt because you bought in December
late to the party, but if ANY of you put faith in the OP's image then you belong nowhere near any position of responsibility.this make-believe asset market that piggybacked onto a darknet medium of exchange has to be the best executed long con in some time.the blockchain concept is just technical enough to buffalo normies and social media spreads FOMO by design.congrats to you who figured it out.
>>8630632I'm not butthurt at all brainlet

>>8625424Its just some dad using his kid's idea and using him as the face of a company, big deal
... crypto is trying to fuck with established monetary systems ... what could possibly go wrong?this little project is already dead - state issued blockchain tech and maybe down the road shitcoin will become a thing ...
