Where are you from? This DOGE mem is completely unknown in Germany...

K, I'm moving to Germany.


I wonder how Chinese are appreciating those meme, laughing about it and then having a bowl of it? =))))

The entire market wasted around two months on building illusions around the Chinese market.
When it was clear that soon there won't be much of Chinese market left, then religious zealots kept repeating otherwise. That created a lot of confusion on what will happen in the future and actually slowed down progress in the long run. The uptrend that started in January was fueled by pure stupidity.
The right thing would have been to drop the price and then plan another rise with opening new exchanges in new geographical locations. It would have been the normal life-cycle of bitcoin and the market would already be starting another uptrend. But with all these illusions and false hopes, we will probably see this downtrend last a lot longer then it should have been. The "get-rich-quick Choo Choo" people here have no vision or strategic thinking whatsoever.
And new payment options like overstock mean nothing to the price of bitcoin. If anyone buys bitcoin to buy from overstock, then it will be converted back to fiat right away. New payment options like this will more probably have an negative effect on the price, since more bitcoins will be converted to $ by older adopters.
New opening markets with the coming of new of gamblers are the only positive news that people should take into account when considering the price.

We aren't talking about a government controlled currency which can be devaluation with a single click. If people don't want to sell it , it won't go down , if people want to sell it badly enough it will go down to that price and even further down.

suddenly everyone is holding fiat and the only way out is BTC


You are aware that by trading, no amount of fiat on the gox is lost or gained.  Only the fees are taken out.  So, if there was 100 million when withdrawals are stopped, there is still 100 million there.

"Everyone holding fiat" is not a possible option.

I'm assuming that the other exchanges will find a work-around before Gox does.

Speculators with short positions, people wanting to buy in at a lower price, businesses with competing products (PayPal, Western Union), governments that enforce capital controls, black-hat hackers wanting street cred, and the thousands of people who publicly predicted Bitcoin would fail.

Do you own Bitcoin? (just outta interest)

I owned bitcoins till the start of December. After it got clear that there is no future in China, I sold. I bought back in about two weeks ago, partially because I was intoxicated and bored behind the computer. Luckly sold couple of hours later with 803$.
Right now, I don't see myself buying back anytime soon. When I'll buy back in, then It will probably be buying some altcoin, not bitcoin.
Right now the only thing that keeps the bitcoin price from an ugly collapse are the thousands of miners who have invested thousands of dollars in their ASIC equipment. They are the ones who are holding and keeping the supply tight, because selling with this price means no ROI. But they can only hold the price for so long, because the electric bills are piling and their wives or girlfriends are yelling at them on why aren't the noisy machines producing any money like promised.

My faith in bitcoin is in a downtrend while my faith in cryptos and privatized monetary systems in general keeps steady.

Yeah, you can't control the stupidity of the market. The nature of the market will determine the probable percentage of stupid people involved. Bitcoin has been very attractive as an get-rich-quick scheme, so I agree that it is little naive to expect something else. You can only observe the stupidity and imagine scenarios on how things would have went if...
