I can buy into this.  This theory would remove some of the responsibility from the bcash gang and place it on heavier hands.  I mean... if we are going "tin foil hat" we might as well go full tin foil hat.
Good, but don't rush it too much. One tinfoil roll at a time makes it.

It's pretty obvious in hindsight. And if I'm right about this, then we should start to see alts slowly and almost imperceptibly bleed back into the Bitcoin market over time. We may even see a few "controlled demolitions" of some alts here and there, and their markets likely won't recover to previous ATHs after that.

I agree with this.  As bitcoin fees drop lower and lower all I can think of is that this is bad news for the likes of Litecoin.  Many people moved to litecoin for those cheap, fast transactions I mentioned.  Litecoin is even used for pairing on some exchanges for this reason.  I'm not forcasting the end of litecoin but, I agree that it may be the end for some alts.

I think that the BCash gang was actually just a group of useful idiot patsies in all of this. I'm not 100% sure they were spamming the network (it could have been the work of Whales/Insiders that they were working with or just knew), but they believed at the time that they were benefiting from it. Now, not so much.

In reality all alts were benefiting from this spamming.  All we've heard for months now is that the high fees and slow transaction time is why bitcoin will not be widely adopted and used.  It seems as if many have been chasing the "new bitcoin" based on this false belief.  It would be easy to believe that the bcash gang are just pawns in this larger scale game you've outlined.  They don't seem like masterminds... I mean... have you heard them talk?  After all, the heavy hand is always hidden behind a false face.

This claim of BCash being the original bitcoin is not correct in any way, technically or otherwise, except perhaps to retroactively spin historical facts to suit the bcash self promoting false narrative.
Its really quite disgusting. "What is history, but a fable agreed upon?"

This is just a draft of an internal report, which open for comments, and it seems they already fixed the obvious error:

My take on it is they(bcash manipulators and shills) realize the gig is up..they have known and now are making an exit into forthcoming forks in preparation for future pump and dumps.

I mean if you think about it, other than their reputations the BCash gang has little to lose and everything to gain. If BCash fails, they'll just let it slowly die and go back to mining Bitcoin 100%. The hardware is the same, so no loss there.

Very valid point.  I concede my bcash pump prediction and raise you a bitcoin pump prediction.

Shaking the tree again?

yes, it never seems to end. We are near the old resistance level of the previous symmetrical triangle (and downtrend) though, so a bounce off this level would be bullish. Of course if it doesn't bounce that would be very bearish, and mean that the previous break was just a false breakout.


In other words, we are in a very criticaltm time period.    Shocked

If anyone is interested in how these spam attacks were actually conducted take a look
at these findings.

Evidence #1 (a typical block full of spam transactions):
https://blockchain.info/block/00000000000000000182aabc399d2daec86b50d510701a5fd098793a4eadead4

Relevant statistics:
Block #470824
78 transactions
0.32951528 BTC transaction fees

An example of a likely spam transaction from this block:
https://blockchain.info/de/tx/91c66f0dc1f130646cad7ab1701d3e944d97549602f2804daaa3370eb44afccf

The block in question contains multiple of these transactions with a ton of inputs.

...

Evidence #2 (a more legit block):
https://blockchain.info/block/0000000000000000019ac8d7d0543caf8e3e02b2a350eea35eb92bcb961da7b2

Relevant statistics:
Block #470825
1752 transactions
3.4972579 BTC transaction fees

As some of you may have noticed this was the block that was mined right after
the block with the spam transactions.

If we assume that the fees paid in block #470824 are the typical cost for a spam attack you could
also do other interesting analysis (e.g. calculating how expensive these
spam attacks on the blockchain actually are per day/week/month). A potential problem could be that
some of these transactions with a ton of inputs could actually be legit transactions
(e.g. an exchange that consolidates a ton of small deposits).

Let me clarify my position.  I'm not saying the bcash gang is innocent.  I tried to state my point while being vague and without being direct which is a communication error on my side.  I believe the bcash gang AT LEAST shares the responsibility for the spam on Bitcoin and the pumps on BCASH.

Quote
EDIT: I see Torque beat me to it. I think his reply is worthy of consideration. But don't listen to me too much - I'm afraid he's winning me to the tinfoil club, one roll at a time.  Cheesy

I can buy into this.  This theory would remove some of the responsibility from the bcash gang and place it on heavier hands.  I mean... if we are going "tin foil hat" we might as well go full tin foil hat.

I think that the BCash gang was actually just a group of useful idiot patsies in all of this. I'm not 100% sure they were spamming the network (it could have been the work of Whales/Insiders that they were working with (eg.,were paying them), or they just knew), but they believed at the time that they were benefiting from it. Now, not so much.

I mean if you think about it, other than their reputations the BCash gang has little to lose and everything to gain. If BCash fails, they'll just let it slowly die and go back to mining Bitcoin 100%. The hardware is the same, so no loss there.

This is why I believe Wu is the real leader.
Wu has risked nothing. Ver is the one putting up most of the money. Craig and Ver both are trying to cash in on their names and feed their narcissistic personality disorders.
Ver could end up broke. Craig could end up with a bruised ego. Wu comes out a winner no matter what happens.

Wanna hear my theory? That in 2017 the flippening into alts, constant bitcoin spamming, FUD, and eventual creation of BCash were all related... a deliberate, multi-faceted, year long campaign that was well planned in advance. Whales and hedge funds started the crazy Bitcoin volatility and FUD all the way back in Jan 2017, and did it for one purpose: for all of the year, to shake as many people out and away from Bitcoin because they already knew that Bitcoin Futures were coming online in December (they are insiders after all -- and insiders know things well in advance of the public). And they couldn't just run the market straight up, that's not how big players take long positions. They were constantly pumping and shorting the whole time, all the while slowly ramping it up and building their long position over an entire year.

It's pretty obvious in hindsight. And if I'm right about this, then we should start to see alts slowly and almost imperceptibly bleed back into the Bitcoin market over time. We may even see a few "controlled demolitions" of some alts here and there, and their markets likely won't recover to previous ATHs after that.

This is probably what has been going on everything is related. And if it actually is they did a pretty damn good job as well. We shouldn't underestimate because they were smart as hell setting this all up. And while a lot of the people are FUDding, panickselling and cutting losses, they are setting themselves up at ridiculously low prices.

Agree with the previous post. The spam was designed to shake the tree. Bcash was never intended as a viable coin, it was just another tool to shake the tree.  

The long term goal was always to get their hands on our Bitcoin.

The Bcash gang has now realized they have shaken the tree a little too vigorously and allowed projects like Raiblocks and Ripple to get momentum.  They have no interest in these competing projects so ironically the efforts of the Bcash gang will now be directed at defending Bitcoin against the alts. Bcash will be abandoned, but not before two last pumps to drain further cash from the professional bagholders.

[https://i.imgur.com/dJ4KgoR.png[/img]

Last year, there were only three red volume months; January, March and September. September dumped because of profit taking after Segwit activated last August 24.

However, Bitcoin quickly recovered and rallied to its peak during the launch of CME Futures last December 18. So basically, January 2018 is a month of profit taking by speculators who bought prior to the CME hype.

This February will define if Bitcoin will continue its uptrend to $33,000 after the January correction.

The monthly chart shows strong support along $10,000 which also a psychological level.

Daily chart
Some bullish traders are expecting a repeat of the fractal patterns made before.

On Balance volume indicates a steady stream of money coming in despite the price decline.

Hopeful bulls are waiting around the 200 day MA ($8,963) to buy in.

Trade setup:

Buy/long the breakup/breakout of the triangle.
Sell/short the breakdown of the triangle.

Buy along the 200 day Moving Average.


Do you have to be a paid member on Trading View to see the 200 day moving average?, because I was wanting to attempt to verify this for myself.  I have heard some folks proclaiming that the 200 day moving average is in the mid $7000s, and so your proclamation of a 200 day moving average to be nearly $9k is surely a better number, from my perspective (because it is higher).  But verification?  How to calculate it?
