I've been preparing myself mentally for 8000.

I mean, there has to be a real pullback at some point to establish a higher low...right?

9k is the new higher low  Cool

re that facebookcoin thingie...
basing on what i read...did not read the white paper yet...

They said that it is 'backed' by currencies and/or gov bonds, but the question is to what proportion.
If it anything less than 1:1, then they are acting like a bank without being officially a bank (no bank license).
French already raised a question about it.
The question of sovereignty also came up.


There are much more questions about that point:

- They say it is a (somewhat?) stable coin, but as soon as they are backing it with a basket of different assets/currencies the price MUST fluctuate.

- If the value of the underlaying assets fluctuate does the price gets set by them according to that estimated recalculated value? If so, every second? minute? hour? day?... yearly?

- If they don't set the price then exchanges should exist for that. Once the coin is tradable no matter what the real value of the underlaying assets is the price could fluctuate heavily in relation to its real value (pumps and dumps).

In conclusion, the pricing thing alone will be a complete nightmare and shitshow.

Other day we could talk about security... as in.... even if it is backed by real assets in custody... what happens if, for example, facebook gets a massive hack in which millions of users get their wallets emptied? What if they mess up with the emission in relation to the backing assets?

Bitcoin has a clear distance from that sort of incidents (even if they impact it in some way each time a big hack happens) but in this case? The shit will be all over the place.

The more I think about it, it would have been safer for them to just implement a multi-crypto wallet into their network and distance from the coin/s used instead.

We will see.



yes, good points.
i also mentioned local currencies instability here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg51493595#msg51493595

Basically, libra (which would be based only on usd, eur, pounds and yen) would decimate local currencies. If used broadly, why would anyone use local? Binance research suggests something similar, but in a wrong direction.

Sub $9,000 again, let’s see how this plays out.

Looks to be trying to find stability at $9k. Going to watch things and can't see if I can't snag some corn if it dips below $9k again.

They are reinventing the Tether scam. A crypto pegged to FIAT. Nothing to see here.

But one difference with Tether is that Tether is not a scam.  Tether is actually used (and that is why tether get's so much hate in the media, including gov'ts and financial institutions), as contrasted with the vast majority of the other allegedly "stable" coins.

Tether was fully backed by collateral deposits. Until it wasn't.

Tether was so not a scam. Until it was.

Except we don't really KNOW if it was really fully backed.

Agreed. Sorry for not adding an /s tag. Kinda my point, actually.

From what I understood, libra poses a threat to tether, not to bitcoin.

There is a difference between a digital currency and a crypto currency. Libra looks more like the first case: it dont have privacy, it is centralized, and have the characteristics of a bank account.

Any fiat currency can be digital, if you use debit cards instead of bank notes. However, if libra dont have the absurd fees banks charge for international transfers, then it will have an advantage over fiat, but still its not a crypto currency.

Hmmm that's a complex and deep thought.... I mean, I have never really believed that one global currency (Bitcoin or anything else) would replace current monetary system. Not in a reasonable timeframe to even consider the probability. But... if hundreds of millions of facebook users started adopting it? Well, yeah, that is a new scenario I never considered before....

In any case, and as I said: We will see. From the moment all I see is vaporware.

in any way, crypto backed by debt is as disgusting as fiat 1:1 or not :p
.. and its shaping up as something from r0ach's nightmare.

Of course someone is scared this Libra thing could actually work after all:
I believe Libra will be a threaten to banks, not to bitcoin.

I see many people saying it would destroy XRP... this is a non-sense to me.

Libra may force banks to modernize, as Libra will be more open than banks (more border-less), but will also follow their rules (centralized, legislation rules, reliable, etc)..
How will banks modernize? XRP may be the answer for them. XRP always tried to get blockchain technology into the banking system.

Banks think XRP is a big joke.

We should make an instaignore filter that immediately flags a SV shill based on the blatantly incorrect capitalisation of Bitcoin.

And they have the balls to say "Satoshi Vision". Yeah, right.

Who gives any shits?  besides you? goofball.   Tongue Tongue Tongue
Me .I like litecoin

It's an honest coin


Same here.

The big majority of my crypto stash is just BTC. Additionally I do have some traces of an ample variety of *shameful cryptoshit* you wouldn't even imagine, but... LTC? I am proud of that little bugger even if I plan to sell some soon. I bought a bunch of it when they announced they were adopting Segwit even before than BTC and have hodl (most) since.

JJG, this thing backfired you Tongue

A proud troll/shill  - lookie uie.

Does not make it right to troll/shill, merely because a lot of other peeps do it.

If I was doing what other peeps do, then maybe i would go off a group troll/shill cliff?  

Thinkie uie bout that.
