Speaking about Merit, I send all mine away, and now what ? I am sMerit-broke ?
How do I get more sMerits to give away ?

Not even one of you credited one back to me by the way.
How deceptive this is.



sMerit is a shitcoin. You did the right thing getting rid of all yours in exchange of Merits. sMerits are currently worth 0.5 Merits but it will be zero very soon. Theymos can increase the supply at will through "sMerit sources".

Merit is the real thing.

You were lied to, should have hoarded. Wink

Wow ! +15 Merit ... thank you ! I feel loved Cheesy

Someone told me also that hoarding BTC is useless and he gave me an address to give them away, should I do it too ?    lol


Edit: I just discovered that half of the received Merit goes to your s-Merit bank, ok so that's how you refill
Thats a altcoin with a Proof-Of-Merit thing.

What if this the actually the end of a 9-year 3-bubble elliot wave and now a super bear market is coming?  First it would go down $3K as usual (wave A), then it would start rallying again and LOOK like this was the next big bubble (wave B), but around 8K it would fizzle out and proceed into wave C which could go back into low-mid triple digits

So buy again at $3k and short at $8K?
 
I think the absolute bottom if history "rhymes" will be $1500. Which is 1 order of magnitude higher than the previous low in Jan 2015.
That's if the old pattern was followed, but if this was the end of an elliot wave then the pattern would be broken.

Can you guys at least f*cking focus on the current buy/sell statistics? That's what I'm here for.
All these useless predictions are really driving the level of this thread down. Everyone is calling new future lows for what? To be able to say 'I told you so' later?
Yes much like my predictions from 2015

Why are people panicking so hard?

*Tether's valuation isn't nearly enough to cause a major disturbance in Bitcoin price - rather it's the FUD generated from it that self-fulfills it.

Valuation (in terms of marketcap) doesn't really have much to do with its ability to manipulate the market. Most of bitcoin's supply isn't on order books whereas Tether's only reason for existence is for trading - it certainly isn't a store of value. You could therefore drive the price to astromoical levels with only a tiny portion of bitcoin's marketcap if you have control of whatever liquidity is being used to purchase it and get it onto order books.


I understand this.

Nevertheless, the 1-2% of Bitcoin market cap that Tether encompasses could only drive down prices by 10% probably.

Express.co.uk was saying 30-80%. Not surprising, given that they're one of the worst FUD sites of all, but that's just extreme.

The issue shouldn't be a big deal, basically. Not nearly as big a deal as others are making it out to be.

I guess the first statement was to clarify your position/prediction.

The second statement was my own position/prediction only if history played out for a 18 month bearish market. I am still HODLing and a long term bull. I've stated this before, I am a novice chartist and see patterns from time to time.

You may be right. I'd sure feel a whole lot more optimistic if that were true.

Draw an extrapolation. I've done this, and if 2 billion USD were suddenly dumped (say Tether value is 0) then the price would probably decrease by about 10%.

Anyone claiming 30% or higher is a FUDster, trying to get cheap coins or blow something out of proportion.

Seems to be working, sadly.

It is obvious that Enjel still doesn't understand the ramifications of the Tether asset and what it represents beyond its market cap.

We've seen in the last 3 weeks that 15-20 Million $ are enough to move the market by 7-10%. Look at the past "pumps" at 10k$ and the needed volume.
Dumping 2 Billion would crash BTC to 3 digits...

I suppose Charlie Lee doesn't either? According to him too, price of USDT goes to 0 if unreserved. Bitcoin market takes a minor hit, goes on. (Actually he thinks it will not be impacted at all... unless people believe the FUD).

Looks like I missed something since my last post since the price has taken another dip.
Has Tether blown up??
Or some other FUD??

I agree. This tether issue proves most users are still chained to the old system. They dont see bitcoin as a possible substitute for fiat currency in the future, but only as a way for quick profits. And this is bad, because it proves bitcoin was misunderstood.

If tether is backed by real dollars or not, bear in mind that fiat currencies are not backed by anything. People are failing to see this.

I miss Jimbo's posts. This thread now is a bear tavern.

Get ready for the next round of bitcoin FUD.

When political and economic maligning doesn't work, move to planetary phenomena.

Willy and Markus bought about 250 000 to 450 000 coins (!?!), you know what happened after.
We don't know how those usdT were used and what they bought with it.

And anyhow, in times of FUD you have to multiply every effect by 100.....

I agree. This tether issue proves most users are still chained to the old system. They dont see bitcoin as a possible substitute for fiat currency in the future, but only as a way for quick profits.

Sorry, but I think 99% of us knew that before Tether was even launched.
