You missed a big news - ECB negative interest

Image
Everybody is looking to black friday shit campaign but in fact the BTC price will be moved by the latest announcement of ECB that is applying negative interest to retail banking. Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and others already start charging for your bank deposits even a -0.75% interest rate! This will have soon a domino effect on all prices. Corroborate that with the fact that now cash is going to be banned in all countries and you have the puzzle... You are pushed to put your money in a bank and in the same time they charge you for that. And soon you will not be able to withdraw your money. Remember that real interest rates are already negative on cash at banks. Inflation is 1-2% using governments own figures, so if you don't earn that on your cash you are already paying the government for banks to hold your funds. I hope the impending explicitly negative rates will wake some people up to the implicitly negative rates they've been enduring their whole lives.…

"I'm earning 15k and my friends earn 80k", "I feel like I want to end my life."

Someone posted a question on Quora:

I'm 28 years old. I couldn't do what I wanted to do in my life because I crossed the age limit. Right now, I'm earning 15k and my friends earn 80k to 1 lac. I feel like I want to end my life. What else can I do?
My answer:

Learn about the hedonic treadmill, also known as hedonic adaptation.

Also read about stoicism.

Good book about these subjects is "The Antidote" by Oliver Burkeman.

The list of good BTC<->fiat services is always shrinking

Unfortunately the list of good BTC<->fiat services is always shrinking and we're kind of stuck with, as the guy above said, dog shit. The service might not be complete dog shit, but there always seems to be an element of dog shit in these services that's hard for me to ignore.

Why I prefer to pay with Bitcoin instead of using Freelancer.com's escrow ("milestone payment™ system")

I read some bad reviews about Freelancer.com.

It is bad not only for freelancers, but also for buyers. They ask for too much documents and it is pain in the ass.

The great thing about Bitcoin is that it is permissionless - you don't need documents (don't need anyone's permission to use it) and chargeback fraud is not possible.

The problem is calories come from starches, sugar and fat, while nutrient don't. When people load up on processed foods, they always fall short.

The DEA Seized A College Student's Entire Life Savings, Without Charging Him With A Drug Crime

Charles, a 24-year-old college student, was flying home after visiting family and friends in Cincinnati, when he lost his entire life savings to civil forfeiture.
The DEA agent asked Charles if he was carrying any cash. He said yes and took out $11,000—his entire life savings.
Well, this is embarrassing. Not surprising, but embarrassing all the same.

US laws generally need to be redone. They aren’t coherent anymore, perhaps they haven’t been for a very long time.

The system has been usurped. The Founders always said that the price of freedom was eternal vigilance. Our system was a Republic not a pure Democracy and it was the best system that ever existed, spurring a technological and industrial revolution the likes of which the world could never have imagined. Unfortunately Americans are too busy soaking up liberal propaganda from the unconstitutional education system, television, and video games these days, and they are not being vigilant about their liberties. Everything the governme…

Bitcoin users frustrated: Coinbase and Circle starting to act like banks - they freeze accounts of customers suspected for "operating Money Service Business"

So, you are trading bitcoins? Your account at US based "regulated" bitcoin exchanges might be frozen (if they suspect that you are "operating Money Service Business"). This is why you should not use US based financial service providers.
