Evidence to confirm Bitcoin's low correlation to other asset classes at least until the beginning of 2017:

https://www.signalplot.com/what-is-bitcoins-correlation-with-other-financial-assets/

I hope it does stay that way, too - the fresh money which will pour in on the next hike will largely be institutional.  For institutional capital, a lack of correlation is the real appeal. I have that from a Hedge fund manager (macro trader) I know who told me how they see things.  The institutional investment industry is watching, salivating and waiting for a safe way in, via ETFs etc. thinking: 'Wow a whole new asset class that doesn't correlate to play with!' For them, it's a unicorn.

OK, huge institutional money actually directly in the market is a double edged sword - however, I doubt crypto can build to the new heights largely on retail investors anymore. 

Once they are in (institutional investors), it would start to correlate, because they always buy and sell like lemmings (true for >95% of them).

So we're still stuck at 6500 or so, is bitcoin the new stablecoin?



Oh ok. I've read back a few pages it looks like we have all simply gone insane.

Fair enough.

In fact, I am starting to think that the minimum volatility we still see is coming from other currency pairs up&downs and not from Bitcoin itself. Rock solid it is.

And yes, this nothingness is driving us all insane. Where's your hat btw?!

Nice work on the hats! Can I get one too?



Maybe with a starburst pattern? I'll leave it to artist discretion.  Wink




Cheers

 I hope this is what you had in mind.  This was one of the toughest jobs yet!

Actually, I have to go and take a 5 hour "home alone" training course today... my wife is making me go!  I don't know how I survived this long without it.
Don't let Bitcoin moon until I get back please.








Have you guys thought about him installing viruses / worms in those hat pictures ?? Cheesy Cheesy ... ROFL!!! ... Cheesy Cheesy


edit:  I suggest you take a screen shot of the hat and crop it yourself in paint or something. Tongue

There are no viruses or worms in the hats I upload.  They are stored on imgur.com and I do not save the delete link.

Do not crop the hat; it is already in the 3:2 ratio required for an avatar.

Edit:  holy shit.  I just realized the forum software has a better algorithm for scaling images that GIMP.  It looks much sharper.

But if it's seen as contrarian in a general asset crash (like gold USED to be)....?

Then the correlation would be negative. Also useful but far from the value of uncorrelation (or low correlation).

It is clear that I have PoW on my mind. Something that the Bitcoin community really has to think about in terms of putting forward a simple ELI5 response when another no-coiner utters the words: "but ... but ... PoW energy consumption".

In this respect, perception matters. Do not give adversaries a chance to use this as an angle of attack.

 I don't incrementally backup as I create an image so making changes to an existing image means starting from scratch once I close the program.   I knew yours didn't look quite right so I still had the image open while I was working on mfort's hat in case I needed to make a change and my software crashed.   Angry 
Long story short, this hat will be ever so slightly different but still has the same overall appearance.

Thanks mate, I owe you one, looks awesome!


Hey, I wrote a poem, I know many were left out, but as time passes I'll prolly get to know ppl better and add them in the future.

<...cute poem mentioning yours truly and others>

one way to harvest merits I suppose... (yw)


Well, I'm not a technical analyst, nor can I give any other crucial advice to people, so I have to collect my merits some other way. And I want to wear the hat!

Going on a plane in 7h, gonna collect some more names and lengthen the poem.

Thank you all for the merits, stay cool, like always Smiley

wow good lot of bumph to wade through, as well as previous contributions, thanks a bunch lol.
don't really see these people as adversaries nowadays, just as losers. no time for them. but if I must: the more energy you put into keeping your money safe, the safer your money will be.
