    Zerpening 3: HODL My Zerps

    I know that fToRrEeEsSt is definitely a HODLer but he didn't explain his departure. I expect many of the old faces will pop in again once there's another run.

    Well that makes sense now. I can never keep track of all my zombie friends.

    I kinda expected Graine's departure - he had become really despondent recently. But I was chatting with fToRrEeEsSt only last week and noticed he's gone too? As is Caligulazbaby?

    +1 The SMSF route is an interesting one and I can understand the attraction to look at it now while the price is where it is. From what I understand, many have come unstuck when trying to satisfy the regulatory requirements. One major challenge is the inherent risk of crypto investments which may not satisfy the trustee's obligations to make investments in the best interests of the beneficiaries. Then you need to trust yourself to be able to trade in a way that builds returns for yourself and dependants. Too much stress for my liking. If you can find a way to do it and satisfy the Corps Act requirements, then it could become a very beneficial route to take from a tax standpoint. But if you muck it up, not only is your investment locked in but you could lose all the tax benefits. Personally, there's not enough regulatory certainty in Australia around SMSFs and crypto. Governments on both sides of politics can see a growing pot of money and are looking at new ways to tax it.
  5. TBH, I think this amount is a bit high too but it's so early in the piece that the natural market forces haven't kicked in yet. The great thing about this tool is that it provides a sensible benchmark if you're trying to put a business case together for a small operation. @josepi90 - is there an easy way to model how much additional benefit kicks in at scale?
  6. @Insoniac @Nobre Both of you joined around the same time as I did last year - if you don't like what you read on some of the threads, then do something about it. There are plenty of subs and clubs on this site that are fascinating, educative and a few that are down-right weird. If all those options are still not good enough, reach out to the mods and create your own sub/club. They want to see an active forum with a broad range of views canvassed. You won't see David or Arthur Britto post as much as they did in the early days but they've said everything they need to say. Now it's up to the rest of us to grab this and run with it. Just look at the number of members here discussing Codius hosting. I don't accept that we can't make a difference or contribute. There's some really exciting stuff going on and the network effects everyone speaks about won't happen unless all of us spread the word and the passion. Not just about investing in XRP (although that's good too) but about the possibilities that the XRP/Ripple ecosystem opens up.

    @Tripple - this is interesting. Can you elaborate?

    Now that I've got a week to recover from the surgery, it's time to start shilling my favourite project - BAX Codius. For those of you analysing the profitability of running a Codius host, here's a great little tool created by @josepi90

    How To Run Your Own Codius Host

    This is great little google sheets tool to help analyse profitability based on a few simple metrics. Thanks @josepi90!

    That's just lame, low-rent FUD. The weak money left the market already so the FUD has to be nuclear grade to get anyone's attention in this market. The Bitcoin price manipulation and Tether analysis by Griffin and Shams published yesterday is more my taste.

    Am I just looking in the wrong spots? I've been wandering the General forum today and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Has anyone seen Max lately?

    Sorry to hear - we hope to have you back amongst the HODLers soon.

    Zerpening 3: HODL My Zerps

    I'll be joining some of the other old b.astards here as it's my turn for surgery tomorrow. I'll be drugged to the eyeballs and ready to puke at any moment so I will have to avoid hypnotic gifs, the green dancing lady, the alt-right psychadelic froggy one or anything likely to make me dizzy for a day. Bikinis and schaffels are perfectly acceptable. I will also be highly suggestible so your suggestions to Buy, HODL, Sell, Moon and requests for zerps are likely to be actioned immediately, and possibly at the same time. I feel safe here because I know none of you would ever take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to scam a lawyer. I feel safe here because as an Australian, I am genetically wired to trust this guy:
  15. I would love to see this as well. One of the issues with doing a benchmark at this stage is that Codius hasn't been widely used - Solidity has been used in production for a few years now and has been subject to significant academic and industry research, particularly in the last 12 months. It wasn't pretty. I think the benchmarks will come once we see more use of Codius apps in the wild. Porting apps from one platform to another will always occur if someone discovers a killer app/game and this will help provide an obvious benchmark between the various platforms. The metrics you listed are the critical ones but of all of them, security is the biggest. It is the deal-breaker. What we know for sure is no one is sitting still in this space.
