Do you guys like Deribit? I only just got into it but the interface is so confusing. I can't set the leverage? Is it always on 100x? Someone explain cross margin and sub accounts to me.

Haven't tried it.  Too new for my liking.  Maybe in six months.

Offtopic:  we clearly need a WO skiing competition.  Because reasons.

- Bakkt around the corner
- Nyse and Nasdaq interested in launching a crypto exchange
- football teams getting into crypto

But yes, Crypto is dead because a random guy who bought ATH in December said so.

Bitcoin volatility index is crashing hard.

Is this the end for the media's volatility excuse?

Volatility index currently at the lowest it's been in over a year at 2.5%.

Price started rising last time after the price was soooo boring for about a month and the index was at .8%.

Personally I really enjoyed the ad ban. It was mostly scams and shitty ICOs anyway...

I have never used Deribit, so I don't know about sub accounts. The term "cross margin" usually refers to the fact that your margin (deposited funds) is shared among all open positions, so the actual effective leverage depends on your total margin amount and the total size of all your positions - basically, total_positions/total_margin.

Interesting piece, less generic than the usual MSM article about crypto.

Quote
1. While Wu Jihan is the most famous name at Bitmain, co-founder Zhen Ketuan has a larger stake.
I didn't know that.


Quote
4. Bitmain has been active with deals since June. Its purchase of a stake in Opera Ltd. values the maker of web browsers at $1.67 billion, making yet another unicorn.
I'd read about this only a few days ago. Opera used to be an innovative company. Their browser was arguably the best - surely the quickest and leanest of them all, fully customizable, and if I'm not mistaken, the first to feature browsing tabs in the early 2000's. However, they couldn't sustain developing their own rendering engine and dropped it for Google's, so now it's just a Chromium browser - and not the best of the pack.

Quote
7. Last week I predicted that Bitmain’s high exposure to a very unstable industry could see heavy writedowns. That’s exactly what happened in the first half, hitting profits heavily.
Biggest Loser

Bitmain regularly loses money from its management of inventories and other balance sheet items. The first half of 2018 was particularly painful.
They will have to keep on delaying deliveries of new miners and enjoy their ius primae noctis to capitalize on mining advantage. If I were a customer pre-ordering mining equipment, I'd be very, very wary, even more so than before.

Quote
Perhaps Bitmain’s biggest risk is its high holding of cryptocurrency, which far eclipses the company’s pile of fiat cash.
Crypto Heavy

Bitmain holds twice as much cryptocurrency as it does fiat.
The article doesn't detail how much of that is bitcoin and how much is bcash. I think it's an important piece of information.

Quote
10. Taking such a large portion of its payments in cryptocurrency also has a big impact on its cashflow statement.
Old corporate money shouldn't like this too much. Free cash flow is too good to give up for magic internet money, especially if it's an altcoin. This might be the reason Bitmain stopped the "bcash only" policy for payments.

Just gotta ride it
I need you, ooh
So stop hiding
Our love is a mystery

What we're mostly concentrating on right now is: what happens once top meets bottom? Where do we break out to?

Perhaps we'll just go sideways for a few more months until everyone has given up posting here. Sometimes Bitcoin is more stable than fiat currencies.

New into this thread, but probably I'll keep this bookmarked on my way to bitcoin price discussions and etc. and see some helpful replies on the experienced people around here. Probably the most replied thread in the bitcoin forum.
