Probably because ETH is moving from a POW (proof of work) to a PoS (proof of stake) consensus algorithm with a minimum of 32 ETH required to stake, and a lot of people are buying it at these low prices so that they can start staking soon

But moving from pow to pos reduces the security and decentralization and therefore lowers the value of the tokens. The logical move would be to sell ETH if you own it.

Lastly, Bitmain reportedly had to sell 500,000 BCH over Q3 and Q4 2018 to cover losses.[/tt]

Really? I would have imagine BCH would tank way harder with such a huge sell, there can't be that much liquidity there. Did he manage to find a sucker to buy it in an otc deal or something? :/

PoS is a secure method and has been proven we have all seen this, this is a shitty argument. On the flip side I see mainstream investors knows of Bitcoin and Ethereum and also seeing POS as a dividend like system and this leading to an increase in investors buying.

What? Lol no. Ethereum will get more and more centralized, if they adopt pos, and as a result lose security. Distribution is an indispensable property of bitcoin (and ethereum never had enough of it to start with).

Good morning all.


I am sure many of you are saying now what? Well, that is a good question and I think the answer involves some sideways action. We have clearly broken out of the downwards bear channel yet are still below the blow off top downward trend line of 2017. I believe the next couple of months will be navigating around this area until inertia drives us into and over this line. #dyor and buy the dips.

POS will only increase the nodes which will in turn increase decentralization. Right now everyone just mines it or throws it on a hardware wallet.

I tried to run a ethereum node about 2 years ago and it was a nightmare. Downloading and verifying the blockchain took ages compared to bitcoin. that was 2 years ago, I don't want to know how long it will take now.

Ethereum blockchain size is currently about 2TB. Nobody is running full node with few exceptions mainly institutional eth bagholders. This altcoin is already dead. Move on, nothing to see here.

Going to break 4k, are we?

Didn't we already do that a month or so ago?
I fail to see the wow factor in that, just normal volatility.
It's because we're showing more evidence of it reversing.

Nah, it's too early for that, we have several more months sideways to look forward to.
I'll be glad if I'm wrong, but I'm probably not.

I would say you are both right and wrong Wink

We have bottomed and yes we have several more months of sideways.

pish tosh

I would say you are both right and wrong.

You are right about the sideways.

But there's plenty of room yet for a stab down to the dark side.

I'd even prefer it that way.

I'll bet you a litecoin?

I will take it if Hairy won't.

I will wager 1 LTC we have already seen the bottom of this bear market.  That is, it will not go lower than 3122.

Suggest period of wager is until Dec 31 2019, or we go over 7500 on Stamp in USD (or under 3122) - whichever is sooner?

Edited for clarity.

I will take the bet of 1 LTC that the bottom was $3122 on above terms or whatever else makes sense!

just catching up here and we can sort it. gimme few minutes

Yep.

"Arbeit macht frei."

"Work is worship."

"Work work." -Orc Peon

If the product isn't backed by work, it is worthless...

PoS is no any different than owning many real estates and renting them away.

But...

If nobody works... who'll fucking rent the houses??

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! Stewpid vitalik.

I have to agree, who needs another oligarchy when we have the central banking system? Plus you realize the big Ethereum stakers are all ERC20 ICO Poop Coin issuers.

re: The bottom is in bet.
HairyMaclairy bets that it is.
Last of the V8s bets that it is not.
One litecoin.
I'd rather only bet against Hairy, but thanks for the offers @kurious, @arriemoller.
I'd want no upper limit as was suggested, as I think it could fluctuate higher than that and still come down lower.
Bitstamp low of 3122.
If Bitstamp becomes unavailable, how about preev, bitcoinaverage? some other named exchange?
I'd want a year just to keep it simple, though I do think it could happen later than that (3.7% likelihood for JJG).
Would be happy to send my litecoin to escrow if needed.
Payment in btc equivalent is acceptable. No one actually wants the shitcoin itself.
If that's agreeable...

Can we have a moment of silence (no posts for 60 seconds please kind sirs) in honor of Gembitz and Roach, two fallen bears who gave all they had to a lost cause, only to be liquidated in shame  Cry as their tiny amounts of money were redistributed to wise and noble bulls.  Cheesy

THIS IS BITCOIN COUNTRY!

They should feel honored that Karhu accepted their blood as a worthy sacrifice.
