Really hoping we get a crossover of the MACD on the 12hr, should see us retest $13,000 in the next day or two. StochRSI has crossed over on the 12hr, suggests more down.

Then hoping there is enough momentum for a MACD crossover on the 1 day followed by the 3 day. 3 day StochRSI hasn't reset properly since July. Been far too long since we had a good pullback.

I mostly kick myself because in the new year I said to a close friend I was going to hold what I mined from that point on. I didn't follow through on that. I didn't need to sell what I was mining at that point. I'd mostly paid off the cost of the hardware that I had.

Yes, I made good money from it, but I didn't make £0.5m, or even the realistic £100k I would have made had I actually listened to myself. I already had a house, a good job, no money worries etc.

But money in the bank is money in the bank. Could be $0 tomorrow. Will be at some point. You won't regret all the profit you've made when people who held on to everything made nothing. I don't tend to think about how much I could have made. I had apple at $80 a share in 2009. What's it now, $1200 pre-split price? No one knows what's going to happen and in the same situation you'd do the same thing again - and rightly so, because these kinds of things are one offs.

It's fine, it's done, can't change the past. I've moved on and sticking to what I do well. But still, I can kick myself for not taking my own advice when really I reached a point where I didn't need to sell.

It is important to reflect on what could have been, it helps you see where you went wrong. How you can improve. I always strive to be the best I can and to win, it's the only way I know how to be. Never give up on believing you can do it better. I could have read the situation better and I definitely could have traded better throughout the year. If you don't try to be better you just get worse.

I'm not fussed either way on it. I've read a lot of the arguments for and against. It is what it is.

There's not a single good argument I've read in favour (bitcoin). That IOTA looks alright though, I think.

Personally I think the only valid argument for Bitcoin having a limited supply is that it's a good way for traders and holders to remind others about it's "scarce" supply and that is what will help it gain value.

Basically, it's some good news spin for traders and early investors to make the price go higher.

But as I said, I don't really care either way.

I think this is an argument for them to have nearer 2140  :P

I disagree. Since it's used as an argument why bitcoin is better than alternatives, it's worth pointing it's not a good argument.

Ethereum has had a big jump!

Sure has, ruing selling the near 1,000 I mined mostly under $20  :'(

Why would you kick yourself. Say you made $15,000 out of it that's fantastic. House deposit. Would you have rather the price collapsed before you sold. FOMO is such a strong emotion. If it's any consolation you've made more out of bitcoin than I ever will as I think it's a total load of bollocks.

Node, though we are using some APIs pulling big data written in Scala developed over at HQ in London. They are looking for a Head of Dev ;)

When do I start?
Pay me in 1 bitcoin a year.

Is it node, scala ?

Might use Scala at some point though we have not needed to yet, none of my team are big on Java/Scala so everyone would have some learning curve.

Node's I/O and AWS infrastructure makes scaling a piece of cake.
