Well, sort of.

On tradingview.com, I just noticed
the Bitcoin chat has 4.1 million messages,
double the amount the forex chat has,
and about double the average daily
messages.

Maybe it means nothing more than
bitcoin people are chatting more
and forex traders aren't as chatty,
but its still nice to see.

Not sure what this post is supposed to be getting at - what is it that you think is comparable between forex and Bitcoin? They're pretty different things tbh.

they are both tradable instruments.  But one is being discussed twice as much.
Pretty surprising dont you think?

My guess would be that there is more to talk about, since the community is so young and still developing. Forex is quite saturated on that part.

Agreed, there are pretty much more room for changes and developments that's why there are a lot of messages including bitcoin. Still a nice thing to notice too, given that forex is a large part of the industry and it is expected to be talked more often.

Are both forex and bitcoin discussions there from same time period; i mean did they open the same time, and is the activity in bitcoin only recently higher ?
If they are of the same timeframe; i would only guess one thing - that bitcoin is getting more discussion because it's much newer and there are many opened questions regarding it,
where as forex is being traded for much longer, and thus, much less interesting and with less reason to debate.

There are still lot of things to be tackled in forex just so you know, like different strategies as to how to trade and whatnot. In bitcoin, you're right that it is fairly new and there are plenty of things to be talked upon.

I am not so convinced about it, because I have been a forex trader for almost four years and I know hundreds of sites and forums related to forex trading; in addition, we should not put aside that forex trading has been a reliable financial investment for long years, but bitcoin is actually a novelty in financial matters.

I find it interesting. At the very least it reveals a possible higher interest for Bitcoin in a site that is not only about Bitcoin, and that seems like good news. It might attract people from other chats just to have a look.  Roll Eyes

Maybe because bitcoin market never closes, its global, easier to manipulate, easier to earn than forex etc. many many reasons

forex is huge, way bigger than btc. im sure it is simply that there is more chat around btc, especially since btc can conceivably be manipulated if you get enough people behind it (MMM anyone?) and forex is way too huge to be manipulated. at least the actual market.

people who know forex dont chat much, they watch indicators and news and are too busy doing trades. they know if you listen trolls will kill you. btc people should pay attention to that.

I don't really get the comparison..

What can you do in forex trading? Indeed, trade some currencies around.

Bitcoin and the blockchain has so much more potential, that there is also a lot more to discuss. Not really surprising imho.

I think the price fluctuation of bitcoin is the main reason why traders are more interested in bitcoin. As some the well known forex trading platform have also started to support bitcoin trading regular forex trader have also been sifted to bitcoin.

This is just one platform and I doubt whether it can be used to make such a general assumption. Forex is by far more established and as such have many more 'outlets' like forums and the like where its being discussed daily. I'm sure that if you combine all those 'outlets' that you will find a totally different picture. The forex markets are by far the largest market and the volumes being done on btc at the moment is not even a drop in the ocean compared to the forex market volumes.

i think that can't imagine bitcoin more popular than forex
in real life if i ask to my friend about bitcoin he does not know anything about bitcoin
but...
if i ask about forex he know a litle what is forex...

That is very true. Bitcoin is a more widespread topic whereas there is practically nothing you can talk about in forex. Also, Bitcoin is a more interesting topic and I am not surprised that more people are talking about it compared to Forex.
