Good morning Bitcoinland.

Just got back from from buying a little more, just a half a coin today, but half a coin is better than none at all. Missed the bottom yesterday but hopefully caught it today.

Now we're scrapping over support at $900... currently $918USD at Bitcoinaverage. Meanwhile we're hanging tough at $1208 CAD, basically where we were at Xmas.

Hopefully that was the double bottom that will send it back up.

Double bottom on which timeframe?

There is no doubt in my mind that the peoples of this world desperately need cryptocurrency. They NEED bitcoin.

Governments all over the world are trying to eliminate cash, they are confiscating gold, stealing wealth from the people. They want all your money in a bank account so it can be tracked or taken from you at any time.

The Central Bankers, in their endless greed profit from this system in many ways, endlessly concentrating the vast majority of the world's wealth in the hands of only a few dozen people. This is creating untold suffering and a system of economic slavery that is destroying the planet itself.

The fucking world needs this fucking technology to succeed, god damn it.

We better get our fucking shit together and make this shit fucking work. The scaling issue MUST be solved, one way or another. Core needs to get on board or they need to get kicked the FUCK out.

This isn't just about personal profit, although we will all certainly be billionaires if we succeed. A convenient side effect.

But what it's really about is breaking the yoke of oppression that has been forced on this world by those who have betrayed humanity itself for their own personal wealth.

That's all I have to say.


this.

right on!

There will be one more dump to about 700/650 and then it will go up again.

We wait to tomorrow and see who is right Smiley If The price drops to my prediction dont forget to comment Tongue

What role does shorting play in a market ?

What does it bring to the table ?

Serious question.

Or is it just parasitic ?

Of course it's parasitic. All margin trading is.

It's showmen (exchanges) preying on the rubes (traders).

It can be a force to bring an asset to it's proper value.  Let's say somebody starts StupidCoin, which is valued at 2 billion dollar but brings nothing useful to the table and is full with bugs.  Somehow, StupidCoin buyers still believe the marketcap is worth 2 billion.  The only option people have in a buy-only market is to not take part in that market.  When you can short, you can borrow the asset and sell it, thinking it will go down in price.  If you are correct, you will make a profit.  Thus, shorting could moderate irrational markets and help assets find their fair price sooner.  On the other hands, due to the mechanics of leveraged trading, this allows for all sorts of liquidation shenanigans.

Hodling on's safer and less risky than short selling. The exchanges are the only ones sure of making a profit from short selling, for everyone else it's a giant gamble.

If you are a bitcoin holder who is here to protect himself from the various shenanigans of the fiat monetary system, you should think twice about lending out your bitcoins to short sellers (be the sole controller of your private keys).

If you are a bitcoin speculator who is here to time the market and earn fiat, do whatever you think will help you achieve those ends (keep your coins where they can be traded at a moments notice).

I'm a paranoid son-of-a-bitch and my coins won't ever be available for lending to short sellers. People like me probably add to the volatility of the Bitcoin market. When the price goes up for long periods of time without a significant pullback, I (if I trusted any exchange) would be selling a small portion of my coins in order to buy more when the dumping comes (as it always does). But... since I am a paranoid son of a bitch, I can't provide liquidity during either rallies or crashes and thus the volatility is greater.

Therefor, I will never earn bitcoins because I have bitcoins. I will have to stomach the ups and downs of the market as a bystander. But... I will never lose a single satoshi to goxxing, theft, hacks, poor trading decisions, etc.

Hindsight tells me I could have made a ton of money playing the market. Foresight tells me 20% of the market participants take profits from the other 80% and I would probably be in the 80% (I have too much emotional attachment to Bitcoin).

To each his own.

How does it work
 

Same as casinos. Get the punters gambling against each other while raking in the vigorish (exchange fees). The higher the stakes, higher the fees.

With unregulated Bitcoin exchanges, they can manipulate the prices enough to trigger the big payoff, margin calls.

It's bad enough to have a zero on the roulette wheel (and a double-zero in some places) but it's the hidden button that really hurts.

Margin trading isn't investing. It's gambling.

I bet he dumps it all out of spite Sad

Good. It would be one less thing the naysayers could constantly whine about. It can only affect the market once, and that's it.

Indeed. It would likely be on the scale of the drop of the last 2 days. Then done. And then honeybadger resumes its inexorable climb.

While true, that's hardly probative.
