Some similarities to BTC-e

These price jumps or dumps are kinda strange. Did somebody really post those orders or is there something more to it?
2  Economy / Speculation / Did Karpeles cause the April and November 2013 bubbles? Most Probably. on: May 25, 2014, 05:42:21 PM
After reading this, I now think that drawing TA trend lines from at least a year back up to now doesn't make sense.

However, the fact is that the price has been in an uptrend for years and will still probably go up with the influx of new market players. A long term log trend line from 2010 is likely more reliable than plotting with 2013 charts. Kinda sad but the good news is that Mt.Gox has ended.

Lastly, this flash crash in BTC-e should be a red flag for everybody, especially those who have funds in BTC-e.

4  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin's Network Effect From Facebook's Perspective on: February 27, 2014, 05:55:05 AM
"In economics and business, a network effect is the effect that one user of a good or service has on the value of that product to other people. When network effect is present, the value of a product or service is dependent on the number of others using it. The classic example is the telephone. The more people who own telephones, the more valuable the telephone is to each owner. This creates a positive externality because a user may purchase a telephone without intending to create value for other users, but does so in any case. Online social networks work in the same way, with sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ becoming more useful as more users join."

There are rough estimates to the number of users which range from 300k to 2 million but it is definitely lesser than the number of addresses used (2.6 million):

It's hard to predict the price of bitcoin 10 years from now because 1 active user could buy more and more bitcoins than others therefore amplifying the already exponential growth of users.
5  Economy / Speculation / 1928-29 Market Crash and 2012-2013 Parallel Chart on: February 23, 2014, 06:03:43 PM
A chart worth sharing:

"... there has been no stretching of the time dimension to make them fit."


As we might know, whenever markets crash, people look for safe havens (Gold and Bitcoin?).

Will history repeat itself?
