    Random thought- out of the 1,400+ “coins”, why isn’t there a crypto that doesn’t fluctuate or have limited supply? Like fiat there’d be almost an unlimited supply but the $50 you hand over now will still be worth $50 next year but with all the blockchainy benefits.

    Like Tether? 1 Tether is always $1 and there is no fixed supply.

    Hadnt heard of that one but a bit of Googling and not sure I’d enstrust $1 to them. Apparently it’s a bunch of guys with the money “stored” in shell companies and accounts in the British Virgin Islands...

    As one Redittor puts it;
    “Print tether. Buy bitcoin with tether. Move your bitcoin to gdax to sell for actual USD. Keep buying bitcoin with tether to support the price and sell pressure.

    No regulation or really any realistic way to be caught doing this in forseeable future. Profits in the millions.”

    Excellent idea!

    Yep Tether is as dodgy as it comes, but it does what you were talking about. I guess it's like most financial instruments in this world, it works because people believe it works.
    I guess they got the idea from central banks ;)

    Just testing this website to see whether they are using the latest technology to show that the poster thinks he is posting, but no-one else can see his comments

    Call me paranoid, but on this SSHH website with the CLIQUE we have here, with everyone p ing everyone's pocket I would not be surprised _JLG.

    Unfortunately, we can all still see the tripe you're posting all over this forum

    You actually felt the need to post/ask this question in 3 separate threads? Feeling a bit unloved because nobody is responding to anything you're saying?

    Gee I wonder why that is?

    There is no clique on this forum. People are just sick of the crap you vandalise this forum with so it's easier to just ignore you in the hope that you will disappear as opposed to constantly engaging/encouraging you, but alas I have broken that rule by posting this now

    Ah well, seeing as I'm here I might as well point out that you're most recent thread on Gold Stackers was completely worthy of a new thread too. Riveting stuff

    Keep talking to yourself

    I dont know Sop16, if I was bored and there isnt a clique against JohnGalt, could be fun to organise one.

    Starting off with a Thread -> When did JohnGalt start losing it?
