    [–] Who uses decentralized exchanges over centralized ones? Armpitfluff 1 points ago in BitcoinMarkets

    If arbitrage bots make sure the price is constant across exchanges, does DEX liquidity even matter?

    [–] Uber and Uber Eats to Accept Venmo for Payments Armpitfluff 21 points ago in investing

    The amount of people who leave vast sums in their venmo account is silly. I'd bet a portion of them don't even know you can withdrawal back to the bank.

    [–] Anyone have an opinion on Fidelity's FCTDX fund? Armpitfluff 1 points ago in investing

    As a Fidelity customer myself, that sounds like a terrible deal. You'd do much better to follow a typical three fund portfolio and avoid almost 1% in annual fees.

    [–] Anyone have an opinion on Fidelity's FCTDX fund? Armpitfluff 1 points ago in investing

    I actually see 0.7% at that link. I'd stay away if I were you OP.

    [–] It's moronic Monday, your chance to ask any of those lingering questions without fear of harassment. Armpitfluff 1 points ago in investing

    I have a question about the VIX. Would there be a way to make a volatility index using data from futures, rather than options?

    [–] Daily General Discussion - July 6, 2018 Armpitfluff 1 points ago in ethtrader

    Right. What if there were market makers willing to provide liquidity?

    Do you guys think there'd be an interested in a dapp for an on-chain options exchange? Real, vanilla options settled with a stable coin. Could lead to a crypto-VIX and derivatives.

    [–] Burning toilet paper as runway lighting Armpitfluff 1 points ago in flying

    I used to do unlit landings with my instructor at our untowered airport. You kinda aimed for the VASI and corrected at the last second to back over the runway.

    [–] Considering a leveraging strategy in my Roth IRA. Opinions/criticisms welcome. Armpitfluff 2 points ago in investing

    I was interested in the same thought for a while. But bear in mind, leveraged portfolios beat the market quite handedly if your looking at results right now, at the end of the longest bull market ever. But for example if you started putting $550/mo into a >=1.5x leveraged SPY anytime in the mid 90s, you wouldn't be beating SPY until 2014. And if we hit another bear market, it could get nasty again.

    [–] NASA Flight Surgeons Available for Questions? Armpitfluff 2 points ago in nasa

    If that's something you're really interested in, start researching it now because the military will pay for medical school.

    [–] NASA Flight Surgeons Available for Questions? Armpitfluff 2 points ago in nasa

    It might be an easier career path to become a Navy/Air Force flight surgeon and transfer to NASA. I don't know if NASA has a training pipeline for flight surgeons, but I do know the military has robust programs.
