Hi there new ETH investor and/or new /ethtrader
community member! Glad to have you aboard. We are a pretty lively bunch around here; inside jokes, memes, and jargon run rampant.
I figured I would create a sort of glossary to help you figure out what the actual fuck we are talking about.
BGD: Big green dildo, as in a big green candlestick on the price chart.
BTFD: Buy the fucking dip.
ATH: All time high, the highest price of a thing ever, 1400ish for ETH.
FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out, the urge to jump on the bandwagon when prices rise.
DeFi: Decentralized Finance, MakerDAO and Dharma and stuff. Loans basically.
CDP: Collateralized debt position. A DeFi thing.
FUD: FeaUncertainty/Doubt, negative sentiments spread in order to drive down prices.
MEW: My Ether Wallet, a website to make and interact with wallets.
TA: Technical analysis, predicting the future of the price based on the past.
2FA: 2 factor authentication, its a security thing, a second password of sorts.
ERC20: The standard for tokens built on ETH.
POS: Not piece of shit, or point of sale. Proof of stake, the new consensus mechanism coming to ETH soon™.
ICO: Initial coin offering, the birth of a new crypto, usually an ERC20. Like an IPO.
IEO: Initial exchange offering, like an ICO, but typically a bit more scammy.
, more on him later...
BAT: Not the animal, Basic Attention Token
OMG: Not oh my god, well sometimes oh my god, but mostly OmiseGo
. Pronounced OH-ME-SAY GO btw.
REP: There is too many tokens to list here, just google it you will figure it out.
DYOR: Do your own research. People want to steal your money. Make sure you know what you are buying.
LN: A silly bitcoin thing.
GDAX: The old name for Coinbase Pro.
Bull: Confident the price will go up.
Confidant: misspelling of confident from e_z_p_z_
. More on him later...
Bear: Confident the price will go down.
Cuecomber: Cucumber, another EZPZ classic. Can be used as in cool as a cucumber, or as in BGD (see? now you know what BGD means, damn this guide is helpful.)
The ratio: The trading pair ETH:BTC.
The flippening: The ETH marketcap being bigger than the BTC marketcap. Coming soon™ .
Soon™: The release date for everything crypto related.
Donuts: Like reddit karma but /ethtrader
specific, and infinitely more valuable. Legend has it that if you get 10 million donuts Vitalik sends you 10 ETH for every 1 ETH you send him. The name comes from cyounessi
's post here.
Moon: The price where you can buy a lambo.
Mooning: The price increasing rapidly. Maybe exposed butts depending on how you choose to spend your money.
Moonboy: A hopelessly optimistic/greedy person.
$13: The price was stuck here for a long time. Dark days for /ethtrader
$420: The top of the bull market before last. Also weed dude hehehe.
$300: The price was stuck here for what seemed like forever. Oh how easy we had it back then...
$324: EZPZ's number. More on him later...
$80: The bottom of the previous bear market. We will definitely never see this price again.
HODL: Hold. From here.
SODL: Sold, same as above.
BUIDL: Build, you get the pattern.
Golden cross: Moving averages of prices crossing. A TA thing.
FIAT: Not the car. Fiat Money.
USD, euros, pounds and so on.
Sharding: An ETH scaling method. Don't make sharting jokes, they anger Vitalik.
Ramen: The meal of choice when the price goes down.
Just... Don't ask...
Weeks not months: In reference to Joe Lubin's prediction for ETH futures coming out. It has been 75 weeks since he said this.
The Winklevii: Founders of Gemini Exchange, the facebook guys.
Updoot the diddly: Or anything with that vague collection of letters, Upvote the daily discussion.
JT's fire pit: jtnichol
posts pictures of food he is cooking in his backyard fire pit. Those posts make you hungry.
The DAO: Tumultuous times in ethereum history to say the least.Further reading here.
: The founder of Ethereum. We really really
Joe Lubin: Co-founder of Ethereum, founder of ConsenSys. Memes aside. We like him.
: Creator of /ethtrader
. Overall good guy.
: A mod of /ethtrader
. Overall sweetheart.
The rest of the mods: Too many to list. It's a great group of people. They won't give you any trouble if you aren't being a dick.
: DC is a smart guy with good opinions. We really like him.
the undisputed meme champion. A genuine crazy person. Made a bad sell on the way up, and wrote lengthy posts about how ETH was going back to $324 multiple times a day for months, often times with terrible spelling and grammar. When ETH did hit 324 he became something like a local hero. He is the heel of /ethtrader
and we all love to hate him.
: A fool, not to be trusted.
: He used to regularly post TA. Sometimes he was right, sometimes he was wrong. The crucial thing was that he was memeable. He started to get a bit of an ego going, and was deleting his posts that were wrong, and keeping the correct ones. He recently made a return to /ethtrader
and made a post that ETH was going to moon on a certain day and it ended up not being correct, which was just fuel on the meme fire. He goes by etherdamus
now and runs a private TA group which has a fee to join.
: He posts a haiku in the daily every day until we flippen bitcoin. Reading a nice haiku is a pleasant way to start your morning.
Everyone else: Well you will see them around and catch the vibe. There are just too many lovable and hateable people to list.
