It takes some epic fundamentals to get me bullish and this Cyprus event is the pretty big. In case you haven't heard, the Cypriot Gov in planning on taking 6-10% of the bank savings of the population. Who the fuck is going to trust money in the bank any more???

This pattern of activity is just the start. Once Italy or Spain start looking shakey, money is going to fly out of their banks in fear that it will get confiscated.

This will be the key opportunity for Bitcoin to step in as the major convenient and safe store of wealth. Then watch it fly: $100.. $200.. $1000.... $2000 .... the sky's the limit.

The grue lurks in the darkest places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

Don't forget to add that New Zealand is now tabling a simillar proposal: http://rt.com/business/new-zealand-cyprus-style-banking-failure-solution-477/

Does that make you more bullish? :-)  Does me :-)  Actually this nasty precedent seems to have started spreading quicker than I even thought it would, and I expected it to spread..... but just not this quickly....

Cyprus is getting very messy.

I think bitcoins are the last thing on their minds.  It looks like the Russians are trying to buy them from the EU!

It does not make any difference now. The damage has been done the moment they announced this "tax" and froze all bank transfers / kept the banks closed.
As soon as they reopen the banks, people will take out whatever they [still] can.

Looks like banks open on Thursday, meanwhile the Cypriot Parliament continues to reject these unpopular terms of the bailout.

As freespirit said, "the damage is already done".

Someone with a lot of bitcoins needs to buy airtime and advertise Bitcoin over there.

Bitstamp?

Actually, a full page advert in a national paper would do the job - http://www.cyprus-mail.com/classifieds

Maybe this might be do-able?

Nice idea. Publicising a Euro to Bitcoin exchange service could raise awareness and make some opportunistic cash. I mean even if you get your Euros out of the bank what's to stop them coming for your Euro stash under the bed? It might not be entirely unlike the Roosevelt gold confiscation.

Interesting situation

Might be why there's a continuing rise, plus other areas are concerned.

Is This The New "Scariest" European Chart?

Quote
here is the new "scariest" European chart: that of deposits around the European periphery. We know one thing: if and when the Cypriot banking system reopens, the dark gray line for Cyprus is going straight down. The real question is: which other lines will follow Cyprus in its dramatic reintroduction to monetary gravity?

Italians don’t keep their money on the bank like people in Cyprus do. They had a similar tax back in 1992 and they still remember it. I can’t say anything about bank system in Spain because I don’t know it, but I doubt that the economy of Spain or Italy is similar to Cyprus. Let’s face it: Cyprus is for Europe quite a problem: half Greek and half “maybe” Turkish, with a lot of money coming from Russia. I don’t expect that Italian or Spanish people will run tomorrow to their bank for cashing, but maybe they will start to ask themselves what are those Bitcoins everybody is talking about.

Doesn't matter. People have realized the possibility of such theft. That's going to be sufficiently spreading fear.
