Looks like Mt. Gox finally disabled the v0 API. Went back to look at my logs and they've been 403ing for the past two days or so.

What a shame. I'd like to have participated in this flash crash.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

Littleshop, all good points. I am not sure however that freshly mined coins have much of an effect on the market. Also your analysis assumes that mining capacity will stop rising after difficulty jump. For all I know it can even accelerate and we will be mining 9-10 blocks per hour for quite a while. Basically until ASICs will barely cover cost of electricity.


Actually my analysis does not assume mining capacity will stop rising.  Right after the difficulty change about 1/3 less new coins will be made.  That is a big drop and it has not happened often.  

The rate will slowly climb but it will take at least a week before it is even close to what it is now, maybe longer.  It is harder to add 1/3 to the new rate vs the old one.  Over time I do agree ASICs production will get close to the cost of power just like GPU has.

Lol, I I love it when a crash happens but the the price goes back to where it was before it even happened.  People know 1 btc for over $60 is a good deal and will continue to buy.

Something happens in 24 hours......

The supply from mining is going to drop by almost 1/3.  Right now the supply is unusually high do to many ASIC rigs coming online and those people are selling right away to pay for the rigs. 

The price will probably go back up 10-20 hours after the difficulty change. 

Is that so, isn't the network made such that the btc supply is constant, no matter how much hashing power there is, ie. 1 new block giving 25 btc on avg. every 10th minute ?

He'll be buying much lower, I think.

lol not so sure in your calls anymore eh? That's the reason you now put "I think" in your statements so you can deflect when proven wrong later.

There are cheap coins (55), and there is a ruined market (44). Be careful which you wish for.

Forgive my ignorance but why would the market be ruined if the price did fall to 40 USD?

I cannot believe how many ignorant people are here.

Does any of you really think that spreading BS on a forum does have an impact on the price?  Wink

sometimes it feels like im back in primary school again, or more like kindergarten

Please tell me if my maths is wrong. A BFL single 60gh/s, 60 watts, $0.07kw/h would cost about $.1/day in power. At current prices and a difficulty of 6,500,000,000 you would still make $.20/day. I forget how to convert difficulty to terahashes. Would 6.5 Billion difficulty translate to ~65000th/s? If so, that's ~43000 BFL 1.5th/s minirigs.

The network tried for 1 block every 10.  It makes that adjustments every two weeks or so. Right now production is unusually high and will be corrected in 18 hours.

Bitcoinwatch reports on avg. 9.08 blocks pr. hour, so it's not a whole lot more than normal, perhaps 10% faster than normal then ? Don't know what that avg. is based on though, if it's the last hour or the last 24 hours.

58% faster than normal last time I checked. Normal is 1 block per 10 minutes on average.

Correct - My math was off, I confused 1 block pr. 10 minute with 10 blocks pr. hour, so you're right.
