who is Fontas ?

A member in BTC-e chat... usually starts panic sells to drop prices of a coin.
I've seen him (and his alternate ego accounts) do it several times to Litecoin.

It's usually all hot air... I do the opposite of whatever he rants about.

I will NEVER ask for any kind of funds up front in a buy/sale of anything on bitcointalk.

He has a twitter.  It used to be, he'd post a coin, date, and time.  I imagine he bought a reasonable quantity before the announcement.  Roughly around the start time, it'd shoot up, chew through a couple sell walls, peak, then crash... although generally settling higher than it started, since nobody wanted to sell at a loss.  Being in control of the system has certainly made him a lot of money. 

Now, the minute he posts anything, all remotely matching currencies on the indicated exchange go chaotic... even if the declared event time is hours or days away.

It's really quite strange.  Eventually he will have milked all the cash out of his followers, and it'll settle into something moderate...  but for now, popcorn.

I've done well following this approach too... it's easy for a small timer to watch these waves and pick off the mass of fools between the fake walls.

I actually made a small profit yesterday with TRC. Got in and out quick. I guess the losers are the ones who were holding on for a bigger return.

TRC hashrate and difficulty are getting very stable atm.
There are only close to 2,000,000 TRC so they are still undervalued.

I'll buy some more today, price is going up slowly.

Fontas seems to have made enough to retire... Or he doesn't like to read his name in the NY Times.  Grin

I miss this guy. "You're certainly not obligated to, but it's nice to be on the right side of a price movement sometimes."   Ahhh fontas.
