All forms of cancer to be fully cured within one year. Side effects minimal to none and costs are affordable.

AMAZING STUFF


If this is true....

Then its the single best thing I have ever read on this forum..

I agree and was being facetious with the short time frame comment and charts. If there is any correlation with the last bear market we are approaching its end soonish. I do however think that this sideways/accumulation phase could go on even longer than I have predicted. There is some data indicating that this period could extend well into 2020. My hope that it is just post bear market noise cluttering the airwaves.

Cards on the table.
D
 

My apologies, lack of sleep tbh I somehow missed the obvious joke...

Yes, recovery timing is hard to call, many factors, though 1st we need to find bottom....my feeling is people are actualy too comfortable at this level.. and so more pain.. but once we find bottom,  and then if the market has any symmetry.... 2020 it could be.

I have wondered though.. if we have reached exhaustion or are nearing exhaustion from retail... Or if there is another batch of quivering fearful hands to cull with one last viscous move, one that makes people rue the day they ever decided to crypto all over the place... followed by a long recovery period which lasts until either a catalyst sparks the market, or we get too close to the halving.


Anyways... 1st things 1st we need bottom.

Nearly time for some action

Here ya go...5 minute chart with some short fibs...great for action.  Tongue  Now we can oooh and ahhhh at ever $10 price movement.

5m



------------
I do think you are correct however. There is going to be some action soon but I dont think it will be in the direction we would all hope for and that is upwards. I suppose I should be banging the bull drum with greater vigor as sentiment matters but I honestly think there are darker days ahead. This cycle of letting the market recover enough to sell into has been going on for some time now and shows no sign of stopping in the near term. It speaks to me of large bag holders trying to slowly divest their coins. I have also been floating the theory that its the exchanges doing most of the selling, driving the price downward to a point where a rebuy makes sense to the corporate overlords. The addictive cycle of profits from the last bullrun might be to much for many to resist.




Meh... I am interested in bigger moves than $10..

We have almost arrived back at the 200 weekly MA, which I fully expected us to retest after a short bounce...

Got the death cross 50 though the 100 on the cards..

BBs have opened up already on larger time frames (though narrowing on the daily)  but we are well constricted on the 1 hour..

We have formed a bear flag, at the bottom of the support zone of an overall descending triangle.

So.. IMO. either we bounce somewhere between here and the 200 week MA, perhaps with a little overshoot...  and then in that scenario I see us likely to put another lower high and then coming back down for a third test ....  or.....  

So far it looks same as it did , a month ago,  I have the same outlook and same support levels based on previous r/s and volume profiles. so far nothing surprising has happened, in fact BTC has been quite the well behaved and relatively predictable (excluding those glorious wicks.. hunters hunting)   but now with more confirmations.....it still looks bearish to me at this present moment.... pretty interested to see how we react  between here / 200 week MA though and if it holds/ if we bounce from there.  

Volume is still not impressive, and below even the volume levels at the local low.. yes it was up yesterday, but still low.

Doom outlook un-changed for now.

I am pretty happy about it.

It seems to me that fully decentralised exchanges, could have a tough time regulatory wise,

I don't see how. If an exchange were truly decentralized, there would be no handle which the state could grab in order to inject its desired regulation.

Sure, they could pass laws. But that would be tantamount to prohibiting person to person sales of anything and everything (i.e., used cars, beanie babies, garage sales, ...). Something that today exists -- at least in the USA -- only for very limited classes of goods such as firearms.

Well, I have a few thoughts, if you are talking about an exchange that is going to cater for a few small fry retail traders here and there, a few honest folk with legitimate privacy concerns, and then the other main fringe groups i.e a few drug dealers and black sites, the odd tax evader, money launderer, or any other anonymous trader whose sole purpose of using a DEX is to evade KYC, AML, and proceeds of crime and terrorism laws, then yeah sure fully decentralised exchanges can operate and function perfectly well and I fully anticipate there to be these exchanges continuing to pop up and provide exactly that service into that market and that's all good and well ..... or not.

However, I mentioned in my OP that I was talking about an exchange that could do HUGE numbers AND integrate with the existing financial system AND the new one, I didn't say to bypass the larger financial system (DEX) I said to FULLY INTEGRATE and do HUGE numbers...  for a DEX to do so then it would need to implement KYC and AML and all the rest of it from a compliance point of view... otherwise it is destined to become a cryptocurrency to cryptocurrency only exchange, without ever any hope of gaining access to a fiat on and off ramp, therefore making it outside of the system, and a blockbox with limited potential for growth ... (not saying thats a bad thing, and not saying there wont be pretty big dexs in the future)

Ultimately, a DEX can still be shut down or the creators or devs be held accountable, so until a true open source distributed autonomous set up is made, and put out into the wild,  with the ability to update its code and replicate itself and continually respawn on a new address or live on a dark sites or on clients only, then a dex isnt really a dex.

 At the end of the day, its the  centralised and undistributed  custody that's our problem right? so that's the sticky bit that needs to be solved, so solve that bit, utilise a blockchain and have a decentralised custody solution that handles deposits and withdrawals and have that linked to a centralised exchange with a super fast matching and trade engine that then clears the trades and communicates with a decentralised custody solution.  The custody aspect could even in fact be shared by other exchanges too.

 This way we get the benefit of the DEX that we WANT and NEED, and then the rest of it which in fact a blockchain would make more clunky and slower and less efficient,  we already have perfectly good technology to deal wth all other technical aspects of an exchange, and why would we want all of that crap immortalised in a bloated blockchain, for the sake of it?

However we also get the added bonus of integrating with the real world, banks, and financial institutions and businesses and funds and market makers and liquidity providers etc etc.... which is where the HUGE money aspect of it comes in that I was talking about , and integrating with RL business now, not at some airy fairy wouldn't it be nice time in the future.  

Fact is it will be difficult for any entity that cares about or has a responsibility to regulators, or clients or shareholders to be able to interact in any meaningful way with a pure 100% DEX even if such a thing were to exist. Unless the DEX is fully compliant, and then you have lost the use case for DEXs , and actually you can build a better exchange that is not fully decentralised.

(TL/DR)  Therefore in conclusion dexs have a smaller potential (at this moment in time) to integrate and tap into the HUGE money flows that are incoming to the cryptocurrency space... and without the ability to remain anonymous they lose their edge, in terms of tech, the best solution is decentralise the parts of an exchange that need it (custody aspects) and the rest of it be centralised as this is faster, easier, more secure, easier to integrate with the rest of the world, have fiat on/off ramps, etc etc etc - because regulations

admins in bitfinex telegram - the matching engine is down, funds are safu
on proof of key day
coincidence
nothing to see

What do the people that watch the cold wallets say?

Any exchange cold wallets significantly impacted? Or proportionally more than the rest?

I am afraid that participation levels are not enough to actually get the job done that "proof of keys day" was designed to do.. (YET?)

Kinda tricky for exchanges running lending and margin trading too.

For it to truly work near on everyone needs to be on-board...

Really for it to work, exchanges need to fully participate, perhaps even force(?) encourage(?) customers to withdraw..
It would cut the chaff that is for sure.


That being said so far I heard that at one point or another in past 24 hours there have been questions surrounding Hitbtc suspending withdrawals, Kucoin had at one point suspended withdrawals, and Bitfinex has this glitch...(which despite the general sentiment around Finex, I tend to think is probably just a glitch, those guys have been under a fair bit of scrutiny of late (but who knows you never can tell) .................  anyone heard of any other potential incidents?

TBH there are some other exchnages that I would like to see stats from, for example CoineBene, Zb, and including Binance, Okex and Bithumb etc..

If anything it seems that proof of keys could be very effective, if not somewhat clunky and awkward, perhaps a even better way would simply to be to utilise the blockchain and have fully transparency of custody the entire time, you have control of your keys,  right up until the moment you press "sell"  in a decentralised custody solution, but with trades matched and cleared by a centralised trade engine..

It seems to me that fully decentralised exchanges, could have a tough time regulatory wise, though I guess compliance could be built in to dex too, but I think that for an exchange to be huge, and do serious volumes and integrate with the current ecosystem and the new evolving ecosystem, that it could be beneficial to have certain elements of an exchange centralised, from both a technical (speed) and a regulatory and management/security point of view..... and certain aspect of the exchange decentralised/distributed, for example custody// withdrawals and deposit functions

Then if the custody solution is either very transparent, or you maintain your keys until you enter a trade, then yearly proof of keys would not be needed... and indeed we can keep an even closer eye on the status of our assets..

This would greatly reduce the worry of an exchange  rehypothecating our tokens,  or of any fractional reserve practice or a straight up exit scam with everyone's denero


Nice and safu, more practical, technically feasible.

What pisses me off is people actually believe these idiotic price predictions and end up losing their savings.  A lot of suckers fell for Mcafee's 500k bitcoin.  I had close friends that got suckered into buying crypto and they felt the pain.  This ponzi scam needs to die.

@r0ach:

Is it true what Lambie Slayer is saying about you? Were you really bullish about Bitcoin in the early years, before the bear market of 2015? And did you really sell all your BTC at the bottom in 2015? I'm asking because, based on your current ideas, I find it extremely hard to believe that such things ever happened.

Just curious...

No lol.  The only such statements you will find anywhere on the internet about when I have bought and sold shitcoins is me saying I was all-in at $200 and then leveraged on top of that and made a lot of profit, unleveraged at high $700s, used 1/2 of the profit to buy physical silver, and that's the only thing anyone knows about me.  
 

You have not traded BTC since it was $700?

14  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: January 02, 2019, 12:07:04 PM
good one!

well, roomba self-cleans now, so maybe your ouporings would be put to good use somehow, lol.

Every phrase I can associate with the idea - self cleaning, rechargeable, Amazon - used acceptable, 2 year warranty, realistic gag reflex, pleading mode, barely legal pack, carry case - is a stake through the heart of my desire.

Think about first AI chess playing machines vs AlphaZero
Stupidity/raw computation vs incredible incomprehensible genius level.

That will come and they would become irresistible to poor schmucks, like a "girl" in "Ex machina".
They would know what "buttons" to push.
It is inevitable, although by 2030 I probably won't even care.

I don't find the girl robot in ex machine irresistible,I thought she it was a kookie nut job that needed her its legs chopping off, she it was an irritating arrogant dumb weirdo with no personality that was only out for herself. itself ...(sounds a bit like one of my ex's now that I say it out loud)

 Now some of those freakbitches in Westworld are a bit more on point, but come on, lets face it they are just flesh lights with legs and coded personalities.

 I am not a fan of public transport.... and I definitely clean my hands after using it, cannot see me thinking "meh this
creepily lifelike robot has been jizzed in 50,000 times this past year hmmmmmmm sexy, let me get some of that"

No thanks, I would rather get wanked off by an old tramp with a heartbeat and stinky breath.

Even I am somewhat put out by my post.

what's all this happy fucking new year bullshit?!?

2019 is looking to be a major shit show, I don't see any happiness anywhere this year, sorry but that's the truth ...

climate marxists have infested the largest institutions and are spreading their filthy eco-facist lies and propaganda ... the world is in debt of historic proportions, most of which will be defaulted on or inflated out of existence .... wealth, assets, means-of-production and yields are becoming concentrated in fewer and fewer hands ... decision making and power is becoming increasingly centralised and prone to corruption, incompetence, failed ideologies and nonsensical thinking ... individuals wanting true freedom make plans to build their own islands in the middle of the fucking ocean is how fucked up things are

happy fucking new year chumps, stick it!

 Cheesy

ps I have a prescription

Unplug for a while, months if needs be, ignore the static and the noise, if anything big happens you will hear about it.

Disconnect the devices, reconnect with people, get laid, get out to the beach and the woods and have a dance, recharge.

All this shit will still be here, the same, or better or worse if you are looking at it or not even after a year off, set some alarms for your trades, avoid the news, and media..  its toxic as all hell atm, not saying it will be any better after a break... but you will be

Remember when there were zany pumps all of the time, I has thought we may have seen the last of insane P&D alt runs

This is one of the things that intrigues me most about this year. If BTC goes to sleep, will people turn to alts?

The difference between now and 2015/16 when that was at its peak is that alts subsequently had their moment and delivered fuck all with knobs on. Then again that's probably not going to turn anyone off.


Remains to be seen, just as many lost, many made money too.

Did any of the ICO craze produce anything of note? remains to be seen, 99% crap I think, but there will be some projects that perhaps have a chance to go somewhere, nevertheless I agree people will still be all too happy to gamble on ICOS and ALts.

I kind of expect ETH may have another ICO craze,and security tokens on regulated platforms too, so I think we will see another ICO craze, though it will be in a different form, clustered with regulation.. which could be a good thing,  and at very least this way people can be conned from their cash in a fully compliant and legal manner  Cheesy

Also, I do wonder how people will feel after further capitulation, sure there will be many burnt fingers, 97% drop a bit too much? how about a further 80% drop?  great, cool now that you are rekt, can I interest you in one of these finest artisian custom top shelf ICO's? fully regulated, whitepaper and roadmap apply.


Funny thing is, I firmly believe that it is a goooood thing that there are shitcoins, and shit projects... if you think of all of the subject matters that BTC and crypto can teach people and people can study around, well getting burnt to fuck on a project, a currency a ICO, an investment, is PRICELESS education, and if its a lesson learnt well, its cheap at half the price.

Same thing should be for banks etc, bail out? nope sorry, banks closed now, you lost your money, what? well you should not  have put all of your eggs in one basket.. you won't do that again will you?   "know your bank"  .  


Anyway I am ranting
 
Yeah I can imagine a death spiral for many alts resulting in a huge cull, though new ones will pop up out of the next new ICO craze, and from some of those, should they crack the nut of acquiring users will survive, the others will slowly bleed.

TBH, cryptocurrency related businesses in general and Daps etc all need to start actually leveraging invested cash into real world applications, services and businesses that are not just technically viable, but also that can actually start gaining real world everyday users.... no users, no revenue, no revenue, no profit, no profit no company, no blockchain, no incentive and therefore doom.

So the projects that make it over the coming years IMO are going to have to shine in both providing a wanted and needed service, and at acquiring and keeping new users,  so its the projects that can push out the tech AND solve "problem x" AND acquire users AND are well run and can remain in the green , are the ones that will survive... I expect at some point there will be two almost distinct groups, sort of like stocks and penny stocks.

In the meantime, I fully expect full on degenerate trading on exchanges...and for ALTS to be traded like crazy, because up to this point exchanges have been the one cryptocurrency business that have indeed flourished, made money, provided a wanted (needed?) service, and many of them have proven quite proficient at acquiring new customers...  funny that. Talking of which there will be exchanges and new exchanges offering "security token ICOs" in a "security token regulated environment" popping up too.

Also on another note of zanyness ... have you guys seen Pragon on coinmarketcap? lol  Cheesy Cheesy

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/paragon/

 

[Do not go anywhere near that scam, The SEC have ordered all funds from that ICO to be returned. https://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2018/33-10574.pdf ]


Lol yeah, funnily enough if I see something that has shot up 6000% my first instinct is not to buy it.. short it maybe but not buy it

(my second thought is  some yobit shit coiner is currently having a very happy new year)  

https://youtu.be/K3tqvJRNWDY

Funny thing is that the 24 hr volume is now 4.5 million dollars lol, its actually ramped up again odd

Also if you take a look here

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/paragon/historical-data/?start=20181001&end=20190101

You can see that this whole thing was front run, the considerably ramped up the volume over the past 10 days exactly , when compared to its average historical volumes , which could have raised eyebrows from some, and perhaps would have had it not been holiday season lol.. its the kind of thing that usually does raise an eyebrow for me.

What I would be interested to see is if this is the first of many shitcoin pumps, or a single P&D

Remember when there were zany pumps all of the time, I had thought we may have seen the last of insane P&D alt runs

Would be Yobit though right- no surprise
