    Anyone else jumping into XLM ahead of the Mobius public sale (only accepting XLM) and/or Mobius itself?

    For sure, as soon as they announced the two futures exchanges last year, I knew that BTC price manipulation would be necessary, or you couldn't short the market, for each futures contract one party has to go long and one short.

    BTC has been in a bull market for years, the only way it was going to short was manipulation on the exchanges. The hedge funds get a double whammy, they win on their futures contract in USD, and they get to buy some cheap crypto on the exchanges.

    Sure enough .,.5 minutes after I jump out of XRP into XLM, it goes on a rally... how the fuck does this happen every single time?

    Not so easy, if the funds that went long just got burnt on the futures short, they may not fall for it a second time.

    Buy something and just hold, have a break for 6 months and then come back and decide on your next move.

    Worst luck atm. I think NEO is cursed for me.

    -Plans to buy Neo at $30, got registrations done money in and ready to go. Jumps to $60.

    -Buys Neo at $70 usd, went down 60 for a while and sold at a loss to move captial to another coin. Literally two days after it goes on a Ramage and skyrockets to the ath of $190 USD.

    -Buys Neo again at ath, and i also exchange for more btc at the high point 17k. an hour or two later the entire crypto market decides crashes (past two days).

    -(today) puts in a deposit last night to catch the bargain prices. Market recovers....

    FML.

    Yeah I managed to snag a bit of the left over presale allocation. Tokens were 8c for presale and 10c for crowdsale, with ETH being pegged to $1255... so 1 ETH = 12,550 tokens or ~15k if you got into the presale. (Great buy when you consider ETH was $800 this morning).

    They're building a protocol for distribution blockchains to build on. They were presented with an award from WalMart, so there was a lot of hype behind the ICO.
    Hopefully it does as well as ICON did :D

    Interesting idea and certainly a good use for BlockChain. I might try to snag some when they get listed early on though
