Tossed another 200 on Luna when it hit rock bottom and now I'm sitting on a nearly $2000 profit.

I'm sure the big bounce is only a temporary pump and dump, but there you go.

Crypto's a funny thing.
i'd take some of that profit off the table. just in case trading gets shut down again and with the uncertainty what the next "recovery plan" is going to be.

Will ve under 1500 soon. I would wait a while on ETH and see what the reaction is like to 2.0 when it’s released. The more i use different chains the more mind boggling it is that Eth is still where it is.
There you go…

WOW.

I didn't think we'd see ETH at 1200 again. This is nuts. BTC at 23k right now.

It's all insane.

But, if you've been waiting, EVGA is currently offering an instant $700 rebate on the 3090Ti.

That's because nVidia ordered too many 40XX chips.

Ha, serves the cunts right.

The GPU market has been crap for years. I might finally upgrade my aging box next year as decent deals will be a available on the latest and greatest hardware.

They've got too many chips all around, the miners suddenly aren't there to snap them up, and nobody wants to be sitting on a pile of 30 series cards when the 40 series arrives. Their partners are desperate for them to delay the 40 series launch until they can clear their current stock.

If I didn't already have a 30 series card, I'd be buying one right now. I don't really trust that there won't be shortages of 40 series cards regardless of how things currently look, and the expected power draw on the higher end 40 series cards is going to burn down my house if Texas drought and wildfires don't get to it first.

Fuck this ghey crypto-ass silicon-ass warm-ass Earth.

You were correct that a 4090 may actually literally catch fire and burn your house down.

it's amazing people thought an unregulated market would self correct.

Amen.

I'm loving all these bullshitters who had no idea how any of it worked but somehow making themselves out to be financial geniuses getting burnt.

It's financial darwinism in action.

This is basically the equivalent of the dot com bubble in the very early 2000s, or the video game crash of 1983. Oversaturation and/or too much bad product. Lots of the chaff are getting separated from the wheat, and established, worthwhile crypto will bounce back eventually. Memecoins will mostly die off entirely.

I hope NFTs in any shape or form die permanently.

It's worse than Ponzi.

It's a speculative instrument causing environmental damage with no intrinsic value whatsoever.

That's not the same as saying you can't make money from crypto in the short / medium turn while enough YOLO dudes are still buying into it. Just I doubt very much in 50 years anyone will be giving a shit about it apart from being a crazy footnote in history. Lookup Tulip Mania for an analogy.

I bought like $500 in a little bit of everything available on Robinhood early summer to try and day trade.
It just all sat flat for around 5 months.
A strategy on cheap stuff can be doing microtrades for $20 here 50 there maybe a hundred.
Doesn't work when there's no activity, also damded bots never execute my trades like I want them to.

You know what's fascinating to me is AI art.
Right now it can make pictures, music and videos.

I spent awhile playing around with some paintings.
Really you're supposed to be able to put in keywords and it's supposed to make something based off of that.
Usually though it just does what ever it's going to anyways though.
So you might have to do it a hundred times to get something you like.
Some of them charge you between a penny and ten cents per image generated so your losing both time and money.

Anyways I see it akin to being an art curator one day.
I tried to turn some into NFT's but that's now dead as well, think I've read trading is down 95% from last year.

Shameless plug: Open Sea MikeLoveNotWar

My favorites are Space Pope and Buttplug Genie

Look at how she only has one arm with two fingers, her eyes don't match and there's what appears to be a floating buttplug to her right.
That's cool
