Be warned of what?!

I sold all of my SPR on Bittrex in either late 2015 or early 2016 (cannot remember exactly and have not bought any on Bittrex since.

Nothing stopping you posting a retraction or some evidence that I have traded any SPR in recent times...

Then why are you so active in the SPR thread?  ???

I would have never bothered you if I didn't see you on each single page of the SPR thread.

STILL!

Because your attitude fascinates me and I want to see you deliver something.

Good answer.

So why don't you take a seat (preferably as far away as possible) and stop making all those distracting noises?

Nice.

Do crypto, or do not. There is no try.

That's why bittrex is problematic.

The pump'n'dumpers get automatically promoted on bittrex's main page and can sucker in all the newcomers.

This has to change.

But for now:

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!  ;D

So why is this price increase a pump and dump scheme? I've been holding spreadcoin for a month or so now and am happy about the recent activity on the markets. Wouldn't a price increase and publicity on Bittrex be good for the project?

It's about whether a price increase is artificial or organic...

If you watch the markets, read the threads and watch the community it should be pretty easy to recognize whether a pump'n'dump is going on or not. This is not rocket science.

People will buy (and increase the price) if they observe that something has happened (or anticipate is about to happen) that will justify a price increase.

Pump'n'dumpers manipulate both the market price and people's anticipation by making them believe that "something is going on they don't know about" ... and that they feed the natural FOMO that almost all investors suffer from.

There is a reason this behavior is highly illegal in stock trading.

If you automatically assume that "any" price increase is immediately "good" for the project,
and you don't care where all this buying-power is coming from,
then what stops you from organizing those pump'n'dumps yourself?

Well... in my opinion that was exactly the reasoning behind the multi-month pump'n'dump initiated by a bunch of long-term SPR-holders under the banner of "Helium".

For every seller you have to have a buyer and vice versa. That's the most basic economic axiom.

So imagine being one of those many poor suckers who bought SPR at 3 $ believing the whole fabricated hype around helium and not using their brain but rather being in the same state of mind that you just demonstrated: "any price increase and publicity on bittrex is good for the project, right?"

I shouldn't need to explain those things.

Georgem, why don't you create a new coin? What not just abandon Spreadcoin and make another one?

Is it because what you're making isn't directly affected by Spreadcoin?
We just have to wait.

four years into the market since the decentralization of the spr,
in the future the spr will continue in its development? or in the making of the new coin to swap?

Sorry for the late answer:

I will never abandon Spreadcoin, I think the Spread Proof of Knowledge (POK)  mechanism is interesting and I have already seen other coins use this. So we should at least maintain position as coin that invented POK.

More stuff coming soon!
