Post news that are bullish OR bearish on bitcoin.
Opinions and humor (appropriate) would not be deleted.
Abusive comments and posts with excessive unnecessary graphics (when clearly abusive) WILL be deleted by the moderator (myself).

let's see if it will work...

Agora, the biggest dark net market, is closing and hasn't paid everyone their coins back yet. It might only be a temporary closure, and a large number of people have been paid back, but there remain complaints from some users that they are still owed money that they tried to withdraw days ago. It's not a total exit scam, but it could turn into a semi exit scam. Could those coins be dumped if they don't get paid back?

single family offices show increased interest in crypto.
This is a big one for bulls, i assume: Soros, Druckenmiller (who recently bought ~$300 mil of GLD). 1% investment for them is 50-100mil.

A router with bitcoin mining function?

The AntRouter is its final stage of development. The first generation will use the BM1384 chip. Mining bitcoin with the router is a long time dream for the Bitcoin miners. A simple device that will mine BTC and have other useful functions.

A hot and power thirsty addition to a critical part of your network hardware... in return for some penny shavings.

This thing is going to catch on like wildfire...

Some bitcoinist journo was typing fast...it's there if you look at it...fixed for you
BTW, 21inc supported by Intel and 120mil in seed money is allegedly working on the same type of device.
It might work...or not, but it certainly IS news.

The only room I see for combo type devices is in the heating realm: water heaters, in floor radiant heating with water, quiet rigs that make sense as space heaters... and only when the chip wars calm down a bit, probably post halving. And even then, it's not really a combo device it's just a heater, which has a net running cost < than just burning electricity directly.

All guaranteed to be the bane of landlords everywhere who include electric with the rent...

In response to bull thread: If Vivek Ramaswamy was a stock, I would short it-he peaked too early.
Check out the stock they are talking about-AXON-first day price $31, now $13.41.
Prediction: it is going to $1.

I don't know why this guy was there in BITCOIN bullish news.
i don't think that bitcoin would be affected either way.
