I now realise that taking an Ethereum loan by putting Bitcoin as collateral was a mistake.
It would have been better if I had taken USDT.

Now I'm sure that I'm not getting the red square notification icon I was talking about here: #430959
I also see the option is gone from the settings. I just unsubbed and resubbed to ~UFOs to see if that might do anything.

A journalist friend sent me a message today; ‘Hope you haven’t sold your Bitcoin?’ along with a link to an article he wrote for a mainstream broadcaster. 6-months ago I told him to download WoS and I would send him some Sats…. He didn’t and it’s his loss. You get BTC at the price your deserve.
reply
Nobody in my circles has mentioned it yet. That's what's so wild about this... nearing ATH before halving and barely a peep from normieland.
I've been megatard bull for a while now, but this is just spooky.

@siggy47 you in here cowboy? After taking your advice I got a new dilemma now. Do I KYC again to withdraw the BTC I bought instead of paying my debt? Or should I sell withdrawal do an ETF to another exchange and rebuy?!?
reply
I was listening to a podcast yesterday that discussed just what we were talking about. Of course I can't remember which one now. Basically the gist of it was that Saylor borrowed fiat to buy bitcoin. It's a double benefit. You buy an appreciating asset with a depreciating asset, and you get the benefit of knowing that your act of borrowing "prints" more fiat, causing it to depreciate even faster. As to your situation, I don't know. I'm confused myself. Confession- 2 years ago I used one of those credit card 0% offers to buy bitcoin. I knew I could swing paying it off through the term. That felt good, but I'm not recommending it!
reply
Yeah I did that too that worked out great. But I guess from your perspective KYC’ing to withdrawal isn’t a big deal?
reply
I don't understand what you mean?
reply
Well the privacy maxis say don’t KYC with an exchange to withdrawal your bitcoin because it destroys your privacy. Buy it peer to peer to protect your identity and privacy . Because these platforms scan your ID or passport and they keep it sitting on a database that could be hacked which will then link you to your BTC purchases and the addresses you sent the BTC to.
reply
Oh, Ok. Yes. I don't know if this is weird, bit I keep two piles. One kyc, one non kyc. I guess I'm still worried about the white list stuff, so I don't completely shun KYC. I figure I can have a boating accident and mix my coins down the road if that's the direction I decide to take.

playing around in the terminal last night, I feel I just started to learn how to really use the computer. 🤯
if you also want to learn about PGP, the best thing you can do is not use any tools but start right from the terminal - all the tools bring more convenience but also take away some of the important leanings! I prefer stacking solid knowledge ( baby steps learning things one by one instead of skipping ) from the beginning and then later taking advantage of the tools. Otherwise, there would be many missing pieces to pick up later on.

I feel bad for ~security, I currently don't have the time to look through the recent feed and zap good content since it takes time to evaluate content. And when in doubt, I don't zap. But hopefully I'll be able to allocate some time to it soon. It's more a time management problem than a time amount problem.
Mentioning this since it might also be related to the territory founder not taking good care of their territory haha
