1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: EOS, Chines version of ETH, just goes wild. on: January 13, 2018, 08:58:39 AM
People wait for a special announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE_QRexLeco&feature=youtu.be

I don't know from where you take the Chinese link.

It slept like LTC for a long time and now boom. Any one can connect this to any news?

Has anything changed recently? Looks like PPC is rallying. Is it still centralized via checkpoints?
4  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2018-01-08] Confusion Grows Surrounding Official Chinese Position Regarding BTC on: January 08, 2018, 08:47:15 PM
China government wants to take a part in anything that could replace dollar as the international currency, it also likes to be high-tech etc. But it also wants capital controls. Now bitcoin is approaching the scale where it becomes relevant for capital controls and as it is it can be used for sidestepping them. This is the conflict - there are also people who want to profit from any policy choice - but they need to construct their arguments so that they adhere to those two main goals. Governments could have capital controls over bitcoin only if they controlled all mining operations and required that everything goes into wallets operated by regulated companies. This would be quite ridiculous - but they could still pretend that they are pro-bitcoin.

6  Economy / Speculation / Re: FUD FUD and more FUD on: December 29, 2017, 08:26:14 AM

"they" or "you" mistook it? it seems like you just shot yourself in the foot, or in other words you FUD yourself Smiley

the article clearly is talking about litecoin and creator of litecoin,  "creator of the world’s fifth-biggest cryptocurrency". the chart in the middle is even saying "Litecoin Rally".
on top of it there is 0 mention of Satoshi in the article Wink

You are completely confused - I explained how the FUD came to life - someone heard about the Litecoin creator selling all his coins and he thought it was about Bitcoin creator.

8  Economy / Speculation / Re: The BTC Correction/Crash of 2017/18 is a CARBON COPY of 2012/13 on: December 26, 2017, 02:44:30 PM
In 2013 there were at least two more crashes - 10.04.2013 and 19.11.2013. Have a look especially at 19.11.2013 - what a crash 900 to 460:
And yet the rally was not over.
9  Economy / Speculation / Re: 45% drop - this is new territory, never seen before on: December 25, 2017, 06:21:16 PM


I don't really agree to your assumption that bitcoin never went such a dump in short time. According to this chart, there was a massive dump of 72% in 2010 and the last dump in November was also 30% in 4 days. There is nothing new in this dump. Yeah, the fall in USD must be quite high, but percentage wise it is just another dump.

This chart is amazing. Dump is the best thing that could happen to Bitcoin. We need that. We need separate the believers in a new world from those that only want another Ponzi scheme. We need that the dump closes some new coins and stupid projects. We need this blood and Red on the charts.

I don't know what exchange it is based on - but on MtGox (which was then the biggest exchange by a wide margin) the correction in April 2013 made the bottom in about 7 days (and was very close to the bottom in less than 3) instead of the stated 88 days. Also the minimum was about $50 instead of $63:

10  Economy / Speculation / Re: Do you think the worst of the dip is over for the moment? on: December 23, 2017, 09:12:14 PM
There will be no new money on the exchanges on Monday and Tuesday -> less buying -> another dip possible

This could easily be the case new year is coming closer and people want to have nicet time with money they earned.

That used to be a common thing to expect a few years ago - always dips on long weekends. Now it is maybe a bit different - but still.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: BTC/ETH ratio on: December 03, 2017, 07:26:39 AM
ICOing is dying - ETH is only following BTC in any rally - and then dumping more than it when it starts to dump. But there is a new hope in Kryptokitties - it is a really show off for Ethereum technology, and I have a feeling that it'll become a huge internet fad.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Kryptokitties and ETH on: December 03, 2017, 07:12:46 AM
I am not buying it - just too silly - but I think many people will like the silliness, and it will be all over the net soon. And, after ICOs, this is another show case for Ethereum.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: effect of BCH in BTC price on: November 14, 2017, 02:26:05 PM
There is a theory now circulating:

Miners can quickly switch between btc and bch.

If btc/bch goes down they switch to bch. Transactions pile up - and if it goes on for long then the price will go down even further (a positive feedback).

It requires over 2000 blocks for the difficulty to scale down in btc (two weeks - more if the slow down is significant).

In bch the adjustment happens every new block - so it will not suffer that much from those oscillations.

(from https://pastebin.com/D09wHy2W)

Sounds logical - maybe BTC needs to switch to a similar faster difficulty adjustment scheme.

 But if the price does not drop below mining profitability - then it should not be that bad - after BCH difficulty adjusts up miners will go back to BTC.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Soo Soon ? BCH - BTC on: November 13, 2017, 07:45:45 AM
Some BCH warriors have huge amounts of BTC - I don't think that the 3 days of this have depleted their holdings much. In the end I do think that BTC will prevail - but I expect even bigger dumps than on the weekend. In the end the fragmentation of the payment network is diminishing its the value - and it might result in a boom for another contender (maybe ETH - being the second in market cap already, or maybe LTC being the closest replacement).
18  Economy / Speculation / Monday correction TA - Head and Shoulders pointing to 6600 target on: November 06, 2017, 06:09:03 PM


For a few days the rally was losing limpet, correction is not surprising here.
19  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin Price to the sky if Amazon rumor become true ! on: October 31, 2017, 10:17:10 PM
I don't know - I remember there was a guy who used some chat support of Amazon and pestered the consultant for so long that he eventually agreed that sure Amazon will accept bitcoin soon. He then posted the chat logs here and people got excited. It was in 2012 or something.
