bitcoin is currently undergoing it's last great accumulation phase ... so far we have had around 4 or 5 of these, depending on how you do the math on those crazy times when bitcoin was ripping from 0.1 cents to $32 ...  Grin those were the real crazy days guys ... anyway back to the present we now have the largest financial entities on the planet, NYSE, Goldman, UBS, etc trying to figure out what their "bitcoin strategy" is going to be, and this is in the next 1 to 2 years max ... not 5-10 year, note this is a full 5-7 years after the cypherpunks suggested these guys needed to develop a bonafide bitcoin strategy or get left behind.

So the various fudsters, scam artists and goldbugs are trying to sell you something and keep you out of the greatest monetary revolution in 500 years are lining their pockets, telling lies and shilling for frauds, pyramids and ponzis, will always show up here to stop you filling your boots in this last great accumulation, like every other time the easily deceived millions have gotten left behind when the inevitable next adoption wave comes rolling over. The market forces swelling up beneath bitcoin valuations are unstoppable, like a tsunami coming ashore in ever greater tidal pressure waves, the financial incentives and energy behind bitcoin are vast, on global and intergenerational scales in space and time. Fighting against them is the ultimate in an exercise in futility and stupidity.

Once the largest financial pools of global capital are completed hedging themselves from monetary risks with the first true global currency, bitcoin, then the extreme volatility and large adoption waves phase will be over ... there just doesn't exist the capital on the planet to create such conditions again. Your children, grand-children or descendants for 5 generations will never see what you are witnessing in these times. Bitcoin value will keep climbing steadily after this last great run, and maybe volatile but once a large portion of global capital is engaged in bitcoin as a monetary instrument the times of massive gains and extreme volatility will be largely behind us (save for some contrived scares and mini-bubble hypes). Bitcoin value will then begin to come more attached to the underlying economic activity executed using the deflationary coin (all hodlers benefit from economic and technological advances in bitcoin-denominated businesses). Bitcoin's already impressive decentralised and robust nature will only increase after the great adoption waves are finally subsiding and mining will become more widely distributed globally and into smaller more distributed devices as the mining chip technology reaches state-of-the-art, commoditised, leading edge maturity.

This is your time people, fill your boots or doom your descendants to also ran status ( you should be able to pick some up all the way down to ~$2500 in the next 18 months with good timing and preparation, anywhere below $5k is a steaming hot buy and hodl). See you at $300k in 2025.

I think that your memes made your point pretty well, even though I disagree with the concept of shorting bitcoin, especially after it already experienced nearly a 30% dip within about 2 weeks. It neither seems to be a good personal strategy nor good for bitcoin... yet I understand that personal strategy might be the only one that matters to a lot of people who just want to make money, but even on that basis, it seems a bit of a gamble to bet on DOWN after a relatively fast correction.

 On the other hand, if someone had been betting on DOWN when the price went up 30% in almost the same amount of time, that would have seemed to like a more practical and realistic bet (even though I personally don't engage in any kind of margin trading of bitcoin).

You was white about price. Now bitcoin growing.


Odds are about in the 50/50 territory that I will be right at any given time, and so I am not really making any bets, except to buy  as the price goes down and to sell as the price goes up.

Furthermore, I rarely change my bets based on my own personal perceptions about price direction and whether I think that it is probable that we are at the bottom or the top.  For example, if I have orders to buy $100 worth of bitcoin for every $200 that the price drops, there might be times that I change my orders by 10% or so in either direction.. so if I think that the price is dropping a lot, I might change them to $90 each, or if I think that we are reaching the bottom, I might change them to $110 each (something relatively small and incremental like that).

if you don't have a lambo .... than just sell the car that you do have and buy the same 6K bitcoins .... and buy it back with the same BTC dust

 Roll Eyes

But if you did that in January you would still be hitchhiking today. Smiley

This is why the rich get richer, they can hold during bear markets.
What I need to do is get off my lazy butt and work again. For (d
revalued) bitcoins.



I retired in Jan when BTC was at least 2x as now. I should likely do the same..go back to work....the problem is:

1) working with idiots. (that was a relief retiring)

2) the pay seems to not be following, what they expect from you on the job. *massive understatement*

So currently it is a NAW. I 'suppose' if I found something before it hit the want ads and/or such...perhaps it might make sense

for the right job/pay/boss...but you don't hear of those...they get snapped up pretty quick...never make public view.

Naw, will burn all my altcoins and all my BTC if it comes down to it....to stay retired the next 2 years till 65. Then will be available

for Medicare and that last year till 66 and full retirement I can use the 70k work 401k to tide me till 66 years and full boat retirement.

....Assuming my altcoins and bitcoins (ack....

my precious....) last that long. Was planning in Jan for it just to be altcoins..that is getting iffy Sad

Again, my 'guess' that I'm going with is at this moment in the USA 'everything' is a bubble. I hope BTC has blown its bubble and is done

and acts like a store of value in a recession and goes sideways or up...and of course BTC and alts goes no lower

then 2x the amount it was last year in BTC (adding BCH value as well)...with the same ratio for my altcoins...this is the bottom...

If so...I expect a pretty 'good sized' recession in the next, with the regular investments in the next

1-2 years. A normal recession is like a 20% correction..me....planning on a 40% to 50% hit on traditional investments outside of crypto.

Thus, assuming I don't bust my ass and have medical issues and debt (no debt now) even if the crypto angle and above is as bad as

I suspect..ie same 35k lifestyle and no debt thru 66 years and beyond (with soc sec at 66 and Medicare at 65) so big 'yawn'.

But again, get your ducks in row folk. IMHO, attic mine crap in the attic sell on eBay for crypto, lessen debt....because it is gonna

haunt you when it all goes to pieces this next recession (been thru 4-5 recessions) thus you look back at all the signs and say such epic

things as 'why the hell did I get a new car? etc....again, IMHO, we are due...and when the tax cut parties are done....blamo...

hope I'm wrong. (likely wrong with my economic term of blamo) but if I'm wrong I'll simply have MORE income than I expected.....thus

my logic....win/win

denial...and delusion is how I cope in the world (tm searing)

later

brad



er NOW...not so much...can't afford the lifestyle of a female sales clerk at J.C. Penny.....

I'm no chart expert but I've followed this thread long enough to know that a double bottom is a good thing.




So...Huh

double bottom pics please


Haven't we visited the $6k "bottom" range about 4 times in recent months?  Since February, right?  That is quadruple bottom.

Instead of lambos, we are getting lamb bottoms?  Fuck.

We hit $5.8k twice. That was the long term double bottom.

The medium term (this past month) double bottom was at $6.2k.

Can you imagine the private key ownership of these government entities?

I used to use a smart card at work. This was for a network used by just about everyone in the military and most of the government.

They had one guy in the world that had a single key that was used to secure all of these cards.

At one point, he quit.

I found this out after my card shit the bed and I was waiting for 3 months to get a new card so I could get access to my computer (trust me, I really didn't care...I was still getting paid for not working). They told me that a lot of people were in the same predicament. They urged people to please turn in their cards when they left their jobs (so they could be re-used).

We hit $5.8k twice. That was the long term double bottom.

The medium term (this past month) double bottom was at $6.2k.

Perhaps it is a matter of framing, because I do believe that we should be considering what is happening in the overall correction that started after the mid-December 2017 peak. 

I am not saying anything new, but the bottom of the first price correction was in early February, and broke $6k, but only for a short period - perhaps hours.  Thereafter, we have had at least 3 additional attempts to break below the $6k range - perhaps our current attempt (floating in the $6,300s to $6,600 area) is not over yet.

 Anyhow, I don't really consider it fruitful to attempt to parse out a shorter period of time after February 2018 - because in essence what seems to be happening with the so far 4 attempts to break below $6k is to really verify if the bottom is in and to verify whether any more folks are willing to be shooken from their coins.  The froth in the alt coin space can exacerbate such bitcoin shakening attempts, but in the end, bitcoin does remain it's own creature too, and surely the leader of coins (even though some dumb money does seem to get confused by whether bitcoin has fallen from its ongoing lead in terms of ongoing building network effects).

In sum, you can attempt to get me to recognize a two bottom situation, and I am going to put my fingers in my ears and cover my eyes to such claims, especially when it continues to seem to me that we gotta attempt to consider the broader package that involves the early February bottom, too.

Speak to da hand, speak to da hand.

Hey... I have no problem seeing burned shorts, but I really don't know what they mean because there could be a whole hell-of-a lot of shorts burning all the way up to $10k.

It seems to me that we gotta get above $10k anyhow before we get too confident that the bottom(s) (however many there have been so far) are "in."  

Part of my thinking remains that unless we get above $10k and stay there for a while, we still remain in close striking distance of our current local bottom(s)(again however many there are), and we cannot really rest with comfort while BTC prices are in such close bottom(s) proximity.

By the way, maybe I am wrong about $10k and maybe the safe price point is at a different amount?    I am just using that $10k as an approximate tentative place, at the moment, in my current thinking.

Good analysis, in my view.

The market will tell us where it is going, ultimately. We can make scenarios and conjectures.  Using the terms if/then/but for alternatives is important.


10k would certainly improve the odds that the bottom was in. Looking at the time scales of the down wave (I would rather call this a bear market) you can see it is unlikely we can form an bullish opinion for some months (10k is going to take a bit of work to get to).

With price sitting near lows, a bearish opinion could be quicker to get to (if 5.8k is broken decisively).

I look at the price action with decades of chart/trend watching  experience , and those are the sort of reasons for me to say on balance, we are still in a bear market. A base, and bull trend will take time and market 'effort' to form. Current price action could be forming a bottom, but its too early to say. All the previous lows of major BTC bear trends have been short lived (spike bottoms), and that doesn't bode well here.
