Shorting bitcoin? Judging from the charts that is a bad idea.
Current price is higher than yesterday's price.

Buy every dip and hold your coins I would suggest.
You cannot hold forever, otherwise what is the point of it?


Boy someone yesterday was awfully sure of himself that selling was such a bad idea ".....we be going uppity."

It didn't really had a fall from yesterday (bitstamp is up 20$ since yesterday, same time). The correction is in a few hours window.


600 drop from 2800 is not just a fall, it was an excellent shorting opportunity, if you are into that kind of thing.

If you know the tops and bottoms beforehand, sure.

It is a very simple strategy really, buy as it is going down and sell whilst it is going up; therefore you might actually find the top and the bottoms. This is not rocket surgery

The South Korean government has been very friendly towards digital currencies, and the country is steadily becoming a technology hub. Just recently the government lowered the equity capital requirement for bitcoin companies working with remittances.

The new statutes will begin on June 18 with a reduction of required capital to 1 billion KRW in contrast to the prior requirement of 2 billion KRW.

Yeah I tried to do so and got burned as hell ><

It's not even that the opportunity doesn't exist. It's just that prices moves so fast and with such a great range that...
I guess I'll never really get the hand of btc trading. Forex is easier  Tongue

Not just Bitcoin that's falling, most crypto is losing value right now. Interesting since most of the time when a situation like this happens, since it's usually those alts going up. Once we reach the bottom it'd likely be a good time to buy.

I thought there was a Bitcoin ATM just around the corner from you. You shouldn't have any travel expenses. Is it broken or something?

*snip*
The place I've used most recently ran out of coins a couple of days ago.
*snip*


Does it tell you its run out of coins before you put the money in, or does it happily accept the money, then refuse to give it back when it finally tells you its got no Bitcoins?

You can't use margin now on exchanges to buy bitcoin. You're allowed to only sell on margin. This effect will last until Monday when new portion of fiat will hit all bitcoin exchanges. We have only 2-3 days to shake the weak hands and reload.

Not at all, because we are in bubble just entering parabolic stage. Not "most of the time" situation  Smiley

In 2013, alts after massive growth crashed in reaction to bitcoin correction. Then whales poured all their cash to Bitcoin in anticipation of final wave 5. It came and it was glorious.

Ok guys, I have finally got my free CLAMS, so it was for real. Got 28 CLAMS for the six addresses I could find that were applicable. That's around 100€... Free money I love it Smiley

Btw, I used Just-Dice to do the claim as gentleman posted, after trying several times to sync the clam wallet to no avail.

After getting over the creepy feeling involved in extracting and send the private key, I did this also.
You know you don't need a CLAM wallet (and no need to sync) if you use shapeshift.io? If you leave the clam address empty, say 'withdraw', it makes a clam address for you to enter on the just-dice.com site...

Perhaps this is my tinfoil hat speaking but......aren't you worried about the "paper" trail you are submitting to this exchange of private key for CLAM? Much like when the Coca-Cola created this huge online photo album of people's faces in order to find their "doppelgangers," not for a huge facial recognition system instead.

That's pretty much the main reason I have not yet jumped into any of these offers. Some day, I'll have an hour to think it through.

OTOH, I think there are time limits on some of these blockchain snapshot spinoffs.

If there was an exchange I trusted, I believe I would slowly start selling a few coins at this point with the intentions of buying them back for less in the future.

Since no such thing exists, I can't do my small part to help flatten the spikes in the exchange rate, which I have been well trained to believe are inevitable at some point.

Oh well... I'll watch the rallies with nervous jubilation and endure the troll infested bear markets with quiet disgust... from over here, in my corner... all cozy in my straitjacket.

I hear ya. I actually took the step to (incrementally) move about 10% of my holdings onto exchange, and have been making bank on the volatility. Of course, I now have a fistfull of stinky fiat, and that much less Bitcoin at this point. But all my sells are still sitting on exchange in the form of offsetting open buy orders at less $ than for which I sold. So when the crash comes, I'll buy all that BTC back at a discounted price.

Of course there is the caveat that the exchange might simply steal my assets and turn tail. Its a calculated risk. Well, a spitballed risk.

FWIW, the rake on the volatility has been more than my (non-negligible first world) salary over the last two months.
