The coin I have most my holdings in, Lend, I don't believe is very viable for the future. It will have a purpose, but the extremely high collateral makes it not largely practical once people aren't using their borrowed money to make huge gains in crypto

Do you think Lend has bounce back potential and room to grow from its recent highs or is it pretty much dunzo?

If the market rebounds as a whole, yes, Lend will hit new highs. There were a few small set backs that stopped the price from growing. It's kind of annoying because it's a better product than most of the coins out there. Though the utility of Lend is in the product, not in the coin really.

I remember when pitching identity protection insurance was like selling snake oil.
I'm confident blockchain will eventually be hacked and not as secure as believed today.
I bet one will be able to buy "blockchain insurance" in the near future.

What's funny is it's already starting. I'm not going to pretend to have done anywhere near the research on Cryptocurrenc, especially IOTA, like you.

I believe history is on my side. At some point, hackers will find a way.

the price being half of what you originally bought at, by itself, does not make it a good investment though. Why do you believe in it?

 

(not saying you're wrong, just that  a blanket statement to buy because its half your oroginal purchase price doesn't hold any water)

 

a CC for projects to more or less pay contractors when errors in their software/code are found and fixed? if i have it right

To its proponents, the cryptocurrency Bitcoin offers the potential to disrupt payment systems and traditional currencies. It has also been subject to security breaches and wild price fluctuations. This paper identifies and analyzes the impact of suspicious trading activity on the Mt. Gox Bitcoin currency exchange, in which approximately 600,000 bitcoins (BTC) valued at $188 million were fraudulently acquired. During both periods, the USD-BTC exchange rate rose by an average of four percent on days when suspicious trades took place, compared to a slight decline on days without suspicious activity. Based on rigorous analysis with extensive robustness checks, the paper demonstrates that the suspicious trading activity likely caused the unprecedented spike in the USD-BTC exchange rate in late 2013, when the rate jumped from around $150 to more than $1,000 in two months.

It's crazy how fast everything plummeted. Serious panic has taken over after a bunch of negative news stories. I backed out of Land at .18 . Damn did I lose a lot of profit. I'm looking at buying opportunities right now.

If you bought at 15k...hold....because its gotta go back up...right?  Errr...maybe.  Just never sell.  It's only a paper loss. 

 

If you bought at 6k...hold...because ...it certainly can't fall to 6k, wiping out your profits....or can it?

Nah. I hadn't gotten to 1000% returns yet. Not even close. I have been consolidating a lot of my found money into IOTA, and dollar cost averaging down as I go.

I am ready to stop reducing my average in about now though. :(

I stI'll have my eye on iota, ripple, maybe adding more ETH.

These other things like lend, bounty0x... I just don't know. We really havnt seen them do anything but rocket up based on all the hype and now fall back down. Not really any evidence they will rebound rather than simply be replaced by the next hot alt coin. Not enough data, imo. But if LEND went low enough, being tied to ETH, I would consider a gamble on it.... I think
