Looking forward to #Brexit fail. Clan Maxwell is readying our armies to march South. For an historical primer, check out “Outlaw King” trailer.
I talked with a young entrepreneur in Puerto Rico about the new crypto wave (starts at 13:15 - ) One interesting point; many young people who might ordinarily leave PR are staying, and many are moving back. This is a definite positive. https://t.co/vewEC5pQFN
Even if I needed to contact Temasek, I guess I would have used Wechat or something. Oversea phone call’s quality is very bad. I don’t have the convenience to comment most of the news related with Bitmain, but they are mostly as fake as this.
As the (unofficial) leader of Scotland’s Clan Maxwell, I side with the North. #Brexit crash-out will cripple London and Northerners will then march on Westminster and Buckingham Palace and finally crush these bastards. The North remembers. Our time is now. https://t.co/1W1UV1TM38
Hash rate is price-insensitive. There is no relationship between cost and price, or even price and value in the case of #Bitcoin. Miners’ actions are locked in the protocol’s crypto (read: hidden) plan to dominate global computational capacity for reasons not yet entirely clear.

Too many people think they have a vote in your decisions. In a truly free market you don't get to tell people what to do.
To me "market capitulation" is not about fear, but rather about disgust and indifference. Fearful investors still have hope, capitulated investors don't.
