Far from being disintermediated, Wall Street is at the center of the new wave in interest in crypto. Liquidity in the crypto markets is powered by the same high-frequency trading firms that are dominate in equities, U.S. Treasuries, futures, and every other liquid asset class. Jump, the largest trader of U.S. Treasuries has a trading team of 22 people working on crypto according to a source familiar with the matter. That team is larger than any other single trading team (of which there are approximately two dozen) in the company. Hudson River Trading, Tower Research, and XR Trading all have large automated trading initiatives on the retail exchanges. (Notably absent from the list is Virtu.)
ugh

Yeah it's gross but true. Good read thx.

Quote
The lack of relationship to real world fundamentals means that the true value of a crypto assets is impossible to determine (e.g., as opposed to price/earnings ratio of a stock), but the price is readily apparent by the balance of supply and demand in the market. This is a trader’s paradise! As a former trader, I did not know whether Treasury yields were going up or down a year from now (or even hours from now), but I could make a two-sided market to any counterparty on the street because I had a ton of information about who wanted to buy or sell.

This is so true of Eth.

Quote
Uncensored money and distributed applications were great concepts but have found success in few real-world applications. However, the blockchain has found its killer app and it is Trading. There are a few new players in the market (notably, the crypto exchanges), but for the most part crypto is fitting into the existing world of the capital markets.

So, thank you crypto-nerds. You have invented the greatest financial instrument ever known to man. Wall Street will take it from here.

This small dump doesn't make much sense, don't sell. Volumes are low don't get fooled by those who want your coins. Remember there are only 21M (and we all know there are even less due to losses and such).
Let the panic unfold before your eyes but, don't be afraid. You all know how it works

So are these futures markets akin to creating new coins that will never have to be bought from the current pool as long as the market keeps moving in their collective majority direction?

Future markets have already manipulated every underlying assets they touch WITHOUT having to deal with the real asset. I only care about the real number of bitcoins traded on the exchanges (which is not accurate but at least it gives us an idea). And, if there are exchanges that are playing with fire (fractional reserve anyone) let them burn. Bitcoin does not need exchanges in the long run anyway

Your underlying premise, Karartma, seems to be correct that real bitcoin should be more valuable than ones that are held by third parties or represented on pieces of paper that might not materialize the actual bitcoins.  So, if there are attempts to manipulate the price of bitcoin through these pieces of paper that fictionally represent bitcoins that are not backed by actual bitcoins, then those could merely be attempts to trick peeps into selling their real bitcoins, perhaps?  Maybe peeps are only going to be tricked for so long about the fictional bitcoins that are represented on pieces of paper that are not actually verified to have the coins, on the blockchain?

Or it could be anything else between $7,000 & $10,000. The way you’ve posted there is overly bearish & suspiciously shilling.

Only 8 days away.  There is a very high probability of  7500-8500. IMO a pointless vote.

Even though you are kind of serious, Majormax, I will take your above characterization as "dry" joke.  As opposed to a "wet" joke.

..but just demonstrating that this kind of poll is pointless in such a short timeframe.


Its just a bell-curve probability around the current price. Ask any option/future trader. Maths

Even though I don't agree with the Majormax suggestion of a kind of nearly inevitable bitcoin downtrend to be necessary prior to a return to UP, I do agree with you that likely there would be more value in the construction of more creative poll questions...
