4  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin Price Hits Record $5,000 Traders Initiate Sell-Off as Price Drops $400 on: September 02, 2017, 03:00:29 PM
Bitcoin price touched the $5,000 mark for the first time this week, confirming Max Keiser’s prediction that it would reach that milestone this week. However, this achievement triggered a sell-off, causing the bitcoin price to pull back to its early-week levels.

After finally breaking through the $4,500 wall earlier in the week, the bitcoin price began to soar. On September 1, bitcoin flew past $4,800, and by the morning of September 2, it appeared poised to challenge the $5,000 mark.

And that it did. Around 1:00 UTC, the bitcoin price leaped over $4,900 and continued to rise. At 2:00 UTC, bitcoin touched $5,000 on several exchanges–including OKCoin–although its CoinMarketCap average topped out at $4,975.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / AMD GPUs Sells Out in 5 Minutes, Gamers Livid at Crypto Miners on: September 02, 2017, 12:50:27 PM
         Computer processor producer AMD released a new graphics card (GPU) earlier this week, and within 5 minutes the product was sold out on every major online marketplace. Supplies of the AMD Vega 56 were already expected to be tight due to manufacturing issues, but the near-immediate sellout left gamers seething at cryptocurrency miners for gobbling up the limited supply.
         The cryptocurrency markets have seen an unprecedented bull run in 2017, and increasing prices and media attention have caused demand for mining hardware to soar. Some cryptocurrencies, like ethereum, are–at present–mined most effectively using GPUs. Because the process is so competitive, miners need the latest technology to remain profitable. In the past, ethereum miners even resorted to leasing Boeing 747s to ship their processors so they could get a leg up in the hashpower race.
         The present surge in demand has often left PC gamers unable to obtain the latest GPUs without paying far over market value. And they are absolutely furious. The Vega 56, for instance, is difficult to find for less than $100 over MSRP. Some retailers have attempted to give gamers access to the Vega 56 by creating hardware/software bundles that would not appeal to miners, but the end result is that gamers still pay more than they would like.
         Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect of the AMD Radeon Technologies Group, posted a Twitter thread weighing in on the controversy, stating that “we live in interesting times”

7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Why An ETF Is More Likely??? on: August 26, 2017, 02:50:57 PM
The CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange) has announced it will list bitcoin futures and create a futures market, said Balchunas.
In early August, CNBC reported that pending review from the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the CBOE plans to offer cash-settled bitcoin futures in the fourth quarter of this year or early 2018
