Early indications volume may have bottomed





I don't entirely trust Novigratz, but he was saying the other day that sellers are totally exhausted. You can see a pretty clear decline in USD volume on this chart.

I'm actually terrified at this moment.

Up is down.

Bottom is left.

Right is blue.

XRP is number two.

 Huh Huh Huh

As long as nr 1 stays nr 1  Grin more we don’t need

Actually Mic, who gives a ratt's ass, except some folks who are getting mislead by the significance of coin market cap when they have such a shit coin, such as XRP posted up there on CMC?  

Furthermore, it seems to me that there were times in which XRP would have already surpassed bitcoin on a number of occassions, especially if they accounted for its total supply - which also demonstrates their fake restriction of the supply, too.

Perhaps XRP going to number 1 on CMC would be a good thing in order to show more intelligent folks how stupid the XRP manipulated scam bullshit and lack of use case coin (beyond pump and dump ponzi) is being shown on CMC.
Yes, marketcap is a very bad metric to rank cryptocurrencies and also cmc is too popular with newbies. XRP wont make it to #1 ever and if it does i dont think people will abandon it but rather celebrate the new standard   Sad  Roll Eyes

Never say never about the manipulated bullshit when it comes to the fact that XRP is even on coinmarket cap and there are many pro ripple advocating folks who already concede that XRP is not a blockchain, so what the fuck is it doing on coinmarket cap in the first place?  I would not be surprised by some pumping shenanigans that could bring XRP's market cap above bitcoin... furthermore, there is real shenanigans as well with circulating XRP supply at 40 billion, but total actual supply of XRP is 100 billion.  

Is there something stopping the sales of some of those extra and hidden 60 billion XRP - which could well mean that those other behind the scene XRP should be considered as part of its valuation (showing further that XRP is way overvalued with restricted supply that causes it to be able to pump more easily)?  Actually, no one really knows why XRP was pumped this last time around, but they are certainly doing a lot of marketing and they get a lot of regular press that seems to deceive peeps into thinking that this next thing called XRP (have you heard of it) is the next thing to sliced bread.

If the BTC price stayed the same, XRP would need to reach about ~$2.91 to surpass bitcoin in marketcap. Considerding XRP's all time high was $3.84, that seems doable.

Full credit to Awemany.  Just goes to show that not everyone involved in BCH is a criminal and fraudster. 

Actually everyone involved in BCH is a criminal and fraudster. The bug was introduced in the code before Bitmain Cash fork took place. They revealed the bug because they couldn't exploit it in any other way.

As HairyMaclairy said a little bit upthread -- albeit in an erroneous context -- extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

You likely have your finger on the pulse of the bcash community more than anyone else here. How's everything looking in regard to the possible hardfork?

I guess I finally capitulated. I selected 6500-7000 in the poll. I've always chosen bullish before this and been wrong so so so many times. Does that mean the price is finally going to rise?
If it makes you feel any better, I selected "$7,000-$7,500".

This has been an awful Bitcorn season.

Not sure what the harvest is gonna be like in December.

>$8,500

Guess I'm hopeless. Smiley

I guess we are still waiting on you to capitulate then, it will rise only after the very last hold out falls.

Hodlers don't capitulate. I think it's possible that if there are enough hodlers, we may not see a textbook capitulation event. Or we've already witnessed it.

I just meant capitulate on the poll. Or are you saying that hodlers don't even do that? If so than I guess I'm not part of the hodlgang any more Cry

Oh, sorry. I think it's acceptable for hodlers to capitulate on the poll.

https://www.coindesk.com/novogratz-says-crypto-market-showing-classic-bottom/

Quote
Michael Novogratz, the founder of the cryptocurrency asset management firm Galaxy Digital, believes the market has hit a bottom.

The market is experiencing "seller fatigue," Novogratz contended while speaking at Yahoo Finance's second annual All Markets Summit on Thursday, and added further that bitcoin, the biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, is now on the upswing.

Indeed, bitcoin is showing signs of life, having persistently found takers around $6,000 in the last three months. Hence, the signs indicate that the bears have likely run dry.

Novogratz also took note of the "classic bottom" in Galaxy Digital's cryptocurrency index, which is down more than 80 percent from its peak.

The valuations are cheap by December standards, and that could entice bargain hunters and investors like Novogratz who view bitcoin as a store of value.

"Bitcoin has held $6,000. Yes, it is off its highs, but it has established itself as a store of value," Novogratz said, according to a report from Reuters. The billionaire investor also told attendees that, in his view, plenty of money is waiting on the sidelines.

If BTC will see adoption like XRP or BCH then there will be a chance for another bull run.

Lately, I don't see the adoption of BTC growing only something opposite merchants stop accepting it. High fees (50$) for a single transaction when BTC was at ATH shows that this is not possible for Bitcoin to be a widespread payment solution because of the scaling issue. Ongoing for years debate on the scaling issue brings nothing besides new coin BCH which is now one of the biggest BTC concurrent on the market. I still don't believe that we need an LN on top of BTC and even if then we should let the blocksize grow until LN will be fully implemented/usable.

If Bitcoin resolves all burning problems then and only then will be a chance for another epic bull run. If not we will slowly see like Ripple, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash are taking BTC place on the top of the coinmarketcap list.

Wow - just imagine what would happen if BTC reached the adoption levels of BCH!

In my totally unqualified view, we've already bottomed out. Sentiment has been on the rise for months.

People should stop hating on XRP


GET.
OUT.

Triggered!

But yeah XRP is basically the definitive shitcoin. And its hard to say what role XRP played in the current altcoin rally, with BTC rallying at the same time.

Yes Luke is an idjiot.  Didn’t realize Knots was his.  Hmmm

Wtf is Bitcoin TRB?


"The Real Bitcoin"
It's developed my Mircea Popescu and his group. It's a fork of pre-segwit Bitcoin Core. It does not recognize segwit transactions.
11  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: September 21, 2018, 03:04:25 AM
I wonder if the recent Core bug will move the market. It might be the worst bug since 2010, though luckily it wasn't actually exploited and is unlikely to cause future trouble.

This is the first I've heard of it.

When looking at those criteria, Gemini clearly comes out as the most legit, least scammy exchange.

The full report is available here: https://research.bloomberg.com/pub/res/d37g1Q1hEhBkiRCu_ruMdMsbc0A

The largest upside we see in the entire cryptoasset market is in the Privacy sector. Although Privacy networks are newer entrants, we believe the network effects seen from the likes of BTC earlier on will be repeated within dominant coins here. Not only do these coins target the same large and lower velocity store of value market as BTC and Currencies, they present a much deeper value proposition within those markets. As we stated above, the largest drivers of adoption within these networks will be continued pressure from capital controls, currency devaluation, and broader global turmoil. The use cases within the Privacy markets are incredibly sticky and feed on adoption, especially when regulators and law enforcement are making efforts to increase forensic penetration into public networks like BTC. Privacy networks do lack liquidity when compared to more commonly used Currencies, but they excel in and push the extremes of each use case within Currency networks. Recently, we have already seen early signs of adoption by some of these cryptoassets; ransoms being posted to large corporations where even BTC could be tracked and was not the preferred method, money laundering, and asset shielding. Looking into the space, we believe the use cases that target the largest end-markets will primarily use XMR (~60%) and ZEC (~20%). Despite developers and executives associated with these projects declining to comment upon illegal use (to avoid legal ramifications), the largest opportunity within the Privacy networks will be unlawful activities. Considering the nature of the use cases, the Privacy market user base will most likely rely on networks that have more active codebase development, more resistance to centralized control (possibly through mining), a growing ecosystem, and growing user base. Not only is XMR far more active in codebase development (prior report, pg. 20) and resistant to centralized mining efforts, it is fungible. While ZEC has an easier time being traded in regulated markets (since it has privacy features by request, not by default), we believe this will be a setback to adoption by darker markets, which prefer networks that are fungible (where more addresses use privacy than those which do not, making it more difficult to track down/blacklist tainted addresses). Only ~5% of the ZEC network uses “shielded” (or private) addresses currently, with the rest of the addresses being used for transactions functionally and technically no different than BTC.

Nice to see Monero back in the top ten. Could have been there for awhile mind you and I haven’t noticed.

Are you invested in monero?
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero Speculation on: September 17, 2018, 03:46:36 PM
We got close to ZEC price again in last days, but did not get ahead. I dont believe Monero was ever more expensive then ZEC so far.  This was sort of destined to happen because of the emission. Doubt many here speculated it will not happen this long. Any ideas when Monero will get more expensive then ZEC?

ZEC was pumped from before launch with insider trading on tokens before chain launch and has been artificially held up since. It will die a slow death but it will die as any non trustless system will.

According to that Satis report that's floating around, ZEC will do pretty well.



But if that means $6,500 Monero in three years, I'm good with it.

No pain, no gain.
This doesn't feel painful what's painful is the wife making me sell for the down payment on a home and soon. I'm going to lose out big.

understadble ,you would like to delay the house buying a bit for sure, but women stays women ,nothing to do about that


Personally I’d wait until mid 2021. I’d rent a couple more years & then buy the house outright in bitcoin.

Everybody has different circumstances though.

Right into the next housing bubble burst ... That would be nice timing  Grin

haha bubble burst and BTC ATH , what a moment would that be .......
if possible i would wait to but i know if the girl/wife wants it ..... than it has to go fast and no time for logic

Ain't that the truth about the logic  Cheesy
Not to be a sexist dick, but the ladies should be kept unaware of crypto holdings. It allows easier thinking in times of trouble. If really, really necessary, one could sell what's needed and magically come up with the money when it's needed.


Agreed. My wife is mostly kept in the dark regarding my crypto. She knows I have some, but that's pretty much where it ends.

Edit: I trust her and she's the only other person who would be able to access my private keys. However, I handle all of our money and investments. And if she knew how much I had, she'd be bugging me about a new house.

So is this what the crypto winter felt like ?  Or still too cheerful?

Sentiment was much worse IMO.

For many, it was their first crypto winter. For all of us, it was the longest, and perhaps most depressing.

There were some serious questions about the future of Bitcoin, especially following the death of Mt. Gox. Even Andreas Antonopoulos was beginning to have doubts about the future of Bitcoin.

KGB career
Putin in KGB uniform, circa 1980

In 1975, Putin joined the KGB and trained at the 401st KGB school in Okhta, Leningrad.[31][45] After training, he worked in the Second Chief Directorate (counter-intelligence), before he was transferred to the First Chief Directorate, where he monitored foreigners and consular officials in Leningrad.[31][46][47] From 1985 to 1990, he served in Dresden, East Germany,[48] using a cover identity as a translator.[49] Masha Gessen, a Russian-American who has authored a biography about Putin claims, "Putin and his colleagues were reduced mainly to collecting press clippings, thus contributing to the mountains of useless information produced by the KGB."[49] According to Putin's official biography, during the fall of the Berlin Wall that began on 9 November 1989, he burned KGB files to prevent demonstrators from obtaining them.[50]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Putin#KGB_career

More than a decade after its fall he tried to distance himself from it.

Quote
In 1999, Putin described communism as "a blind alley, far away from the mainstream of civilization".[54]

You don't get into the KGB without being a hardline Commie. That is a a fact.

In 1999, Putin described communism as "a blind alley, far away from the mainstream of civilization".

Looks like bull runn starts now! This might like what happen last year? Imma right? Buy now! Or cry later?  

but BTC still can lose 72%  Grin

Why 72% exactly? (troll?)

On the chart which was mentioned above

It's not clear on that picture, but I think the 72% is referring to the point at which we'll have a breakout one way or the other (the area shaded in green). The author says most breakout occur 72% of the way into a wedge.
