Did I miss the memo on why /r/bitcoin has a bunch of Dragonball Z images once Bitcoin broke 9k?   Huh

"Bitcoin feels like an empty room with plates of half eaten food and balloons fallen to the ground."

Read this posted by Peaches, thought it held true.     Undecided Cry

Edit:  After the huge pump to $7900 and huge selloff.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Ledger Nano S among top Amazon computer accessories on: October 16, 2017, 02:54:55 PM
From this worker that packs Amazon items.

"I work for Amazon as a packer and ever since they've added the nano to the site I've packed at least 2 and up to 5 each day I've been at work. Seems like a good sign crypto and BTC more specifically is becoming more and more popular."

Supporting this claim, the Ledger Nano S has been among the top sellers in the Computer accessories section.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / BCH can now be shorted on Bitfinex on: August 03, 2017, 01:46:55 PM
Deposits are still locked on most exchanges.

Gents, if you have tons of BCH in cold storage unable to move since Western exchanges haven't allowed deposits, you can short an equal amount you have in cold storage on Bitfinex to hedge your position.

So essentially, you will hedge your profits before deposits are enabled and the huge hoard of sellers dump their stash. Or that's what they're saying will happen.

Greece detains Russian Alexander Vinnik for bitcoin 'fraud'

ATHENS, July 26 (Reuters) - A Russian arrested in Greece on suspicion of running a money laundering operation through a bitcoin platform is 38 year old Alexander Vinnik, police sources said on Wednesday.

Greek police earlier said the suspect, who was picked up on a U.S. warrant, was thought to have used bitcoin to launder 'at least' $4 billion earned through illicit activities.

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Hard fork mean 2 coins for each 1 coin? on: May 24, 2017, 01:45:15 AM
So, when we hard fork do we get 2 coins? 

One being the 2mb block and the other being 1mb block? 

Then we can sell the 1mb block coins off?  Grin

11  Economy / Speculation / Bitfinex: Short > Long positions (Will end violently) on: February 16, 2017, 02:36:05 PM
Current Price BFX $1040.

Just noting, that in BFX's history there has never been more short sellers in dollar amount than longs.  

Also note, 90% are under water with the average being somewhere around $950'ish.

So, it seems they are betting on past history.  Every time Bitcoin enters $1000+ it crashes violently.  However, like the old saying goes:

"Past performance is not indicative of future results."

Another theory, is that Bitmex sentiment suggests a 30% chance of the Winklevoss ETF passing as we approach the final March 11 2017 deadline.  So after an expected ETF rejection by the SEC, lots betting that Bitcoin will crash a few hundred.

CSO of Bitfinex was on whalepool chat saying they would protect short sellers in case of cascading margin calls to the upside.

Whatever the case, this does not look to end well.  

12  Economy / Speculation / Jan 18 FUD: PBoC: Investors should pay attention to the potential risks of the p on: January 18, 2017, 01:59:50 PM

Preliminary inspection on OKCoin and Huobi showed that these platforms provided margin trading which violated rules, resulting in abnormal price fluctuations in the market.  During the inspection it has also been discovered that these platforms had not established sound anti-money laundry system according to regulations.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Swiss account holders will need a new store of value... on: January 02, 2017, 04:45:38 PM
Looks like the SWISS banking system will no longer be a tax haven from respective governments.

Those with huge cash stores will need some other new store of value.

Wonder what that could be?  BTC
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Craig Wright relents aka Satoshi (air quotes) in Public Apology! on: May 05, 2016, 12:28:22 PM  

I'm Sorry.

I believed I could do this.  I believed that I could put years of anonymity and hiding behind me. But, as the events of this week unfolded and I prepared to publish the proof of access to the earliest keys, I broke. I do not have the courage. I cannot.

When the rumors began, my qualifications and character were attacked. When those allegations were proven false, new allegations have already begun. I know now that I am not strong enough for this.

I know that his weakness will cause great damage to those that have supported me, and particularly to Jon Matonis and Gavin Anderson.  I can only hope that their honour and credibility is not irreparably tainted by my actions.  They were not deceived, but I know that the world will never believe that now.  I can only say I'm sorry.

And goodbye.
15  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Samourai Wallet mobile app, Privacy, HD, Stealth Mode, Remote Delete on: April 10, 2016, 11:10:02 PM
Samourai Wallet, currently on Android is great for privacy advocates.  Key bullet points

  • HD wallet
  • Stealth Launch option, removes icon & invokes app by dialing pin from phone screen
  • Remote SMS commands (ie. wipe)
  • Launch over VPN or Tor
  • Really cool icon  Grin

18  Economy / Speculation / Possible Local Bitcoins 800 BTC hack or exist scam on: April 26, 2015, 02:23:57 AM
Possible Local Bitcoins hack or exist scam.  802 Bitcoins exited their hotwallet per this thread.  Everybody going crazy in the forum since nobody can transfer coins out of local bitcoins.

19  Economy / Speculation / Black Friday | Cyber Monday dump to FIAT, a concern? on: November 24, 2014, 10:53:06 PM
We are approaching the first Black Friday where Bitcoin will be accepted at Dell, Newegg, Overstock, Tiger Direct, Gyft, Expedia, among others...

Just curious if there is a concern of huge dumping of BTC during the conversion to FIAT?

I don't believe there is an incentive to buy Bitcoin in order to spend it on Black Friday (due to the added costs of at least 1% more at Coinbase & Circle).  It's more likely that long time holders (hodlers) might be tempted to let go of some BTC in order to take advantage of the promotions.
