Actually I think its a good sign if we can hold an above 7000 level with all the money going into bitcoin because of "free segwit2x coins"

I would have expected a drop to the 6000s.

Yes, you are rite about 93% of the time, and this is one of those times. 

I am so excited that I am about to employ colors and bold and weird choo expressions, - but possibly, I can hold back a bit longer - especially, since even though bitcoin dynamics are looking good, us HODLers and accumulators are not necessarily completely out of any woods, yet.
I agree with this ride it goes up and then down and up i do not know what is wrong with bitcoin at the moment i see it going to 7.5k than 7.3k than back to 7.5k it is not a normal thing that bitcoin does do.

Now it has settled and we are back to where we started before all the 2x getting cancelled news.

Can we finally get back to getting to $8k already? Huh

Someone is still buying futures, the miners are still signalling. Seems premature..
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/smashbroslawlorigins/images/2/2c/Its-dead-jim.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150316200750

the futures have gone from $186 to $220 while we've dropped. does this mean nothing?


Yeah, futures are now $340. Still no idea what's going on.
What are features ? is this a new coin or something i am new and i actually want to know about it because i saw this "futures" coming in a lot of topics today.

Im slightly confused on how CME will affect the price of bitcoin as there is no actual bitcoin bought in their trades and people using CME are basically just betting on the future price. Or have i got it totally wrong?

http://log.mkj.lt/trilema/20171108/#441

<davout>  logic is that on some platform that offered "prefork coin splitting" the prefork-SW2X-coinz are needed to merge with the prefork-actual-bitcoin in order to have a prefork-full-bitcoin

people buying them do so in order to be able to withdraw from platforms immediately without waiting for the contract expiration on nov. 16th

therefore, nonzero value

will converge to perceived risk pricing of leaving buttcoin on a platform until contract expiration

From some I hear it will allows shortesr to destroy Bitcoin, from others it will bring new money (indirectly) into the ecosystem and push up the price. Some say it will stabilise the price, others that it will increase volatility.
I guess we are going to have to simply wait and see.

energy wastage is heating my house, my mistresses' houses, the office ...

energy from Chinese, Siberian, Canuck dams would be wasted if not used for mining

Actually I am less and less inclined to educate people on the facts and prefer to let market do its work, i.e. redistribute wealth from those who are ignorant or got it wrong and yet refused to admit their mistakes.  

If she knows anything about mining, those Chinese mining cartels actually ship their Antminers to remote corners of China during rainy season to take advantage of "free" electricity provided by hydro dams.  Due to lack of power grid and long distance power transmission network, those electricity are wasted anyway.  They shipped back their Antminers during dry season to coal producing region such as Inner Mongolia to take advantage of cheap electricity from coal-fired power plant.  

As for why bitcoin even has value or social purpose (and no, it's not about payment utility), I won't bother with a TL;DR discussion of ideas such as social scalability for inherently non-scalable human as per Szabo.  Because that would reveal our hidden agenda of trying to recreate the institutions that give fiat money value or reach consensus on something such as gold, but done via a value transfer protocol over internet, a process that would take places over years, rather than millenniums as per human history.

Silly or not ....BTC allows WEALTH TO BE HELD IN VALUE OF THE BLOCKCHAIN, rather than thru a bank or institution and regulated

thus sure, like paper money, it is a SOCIAL construct determining worth and value, by those involved who HODL and the only 21 million coin cap

this social construct, like money backed, that is working also by banks etc, just seems to be working quite well  OUTSIDE  of any system of elite control

and BTC is driving the previous status quo NUTS as a result Smiley

So let me get this straight.
A lot of peeps were worried about the impact of S2x on BTC which may have stalled the price rise a little.
Now that the threat has dissipated, the price is going down? Why don’t peeps just hodl and make the commodity scarce and watch their wealth increase?
I guess trading isn’t a game I want to take up any time soon!

many people sold altcoins and bought bitcoin to get free coins from b2x. now there are no free coins and people change back to altcoins. once this is over we should see a new ATH soon.

The price of bitcoin should converge with the futures price due to arbitrage.

I'd expect institutional investors to go long given momentum and that we're at ATHs. It's probably going to be easier to push this to $20K than say $2K.

Actually I am less and less inclined to educate people on the facts and prefer to let market do its work, i.e. redistribute wealth from those who are ignorant or got it wrong and yet refused to admit their mistakes.  

This. Maybe they'll get the picture when they're our worker bees.

Well would you look at that, Bitcoin is dropping while Alts are once again skyrocketing in value.

If Bitcoin can't scale and can't be used for everyday transactions, then this also diminishes its usefulness as a store of value. Bitcoin becomes primarily an instrument for rich speculators, and little else. Other coins will be used for actual commerce and day to day transactions.

Are you all happy now?

Yes I am happy.

This scenario is completely acceptable.

In a world where Gold is still used as money (you know for thousands of years) then are you buying your shopping with GOLD or are you using another payment method such as I$I$Coin (FIAT)?

So....

Bitcoin is where you save and speculate if you want

And Etheerum/Litecoin or whatever is what you use to buy condoms at 7/11
