According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

G20 holds fire on crypto-regulation ... way clear for ETFs?

No.  G20 says crypto too small to regulate. SEC says crypto too small for ETFs.

NO no, not exactly. SEC said there were no regulated exchanges trading bitcoin so ETF was on hodl. CBOE and CME now both trading bitcoin futures ... so I call your no and raise you a big NO.

I let others do the thinking.
I allways have a peek at the funding book at Finex. It represents the sentiment of lots of people (hopefully professionals), actually putting their money on the line, voting with their feet.

In the spirit of all the on topic charts and sharing going on I have updated my bitcoin difficulty vs mining hardware return sheet with today's bitcoin network difficulty increase.

As predicted the 5% average is holding strong. However come Friday with the next wave of hardware being shipped I wonder if the increase network hit will once again ring true that at this price point USD/BTC its best to simply buy BTC instead of mining hardware. That is if profit is your motivation.

Typically with crypto mining apart from hardware and infrastructure costs there is ongoing building labour and other miscellaneous overhead that is not being factored in this example.

Forgot to include the document link.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11QS1BBV11KNGTF8N_-fdfmjTZ3WzPQFbLfVrl5n6R8s/edit?usp=sharing

This is an example of BTC/USD was at $9500 and your only costs was power of 10 cents a KWH.



This is an example if BTC/USD was at $9500 usd and your only costs was hardware repayment and power at 10 cents a KWH.

Well good afternoon Bitcoinland. Just got online after successful surgery Friday.

I see I missed some excitement while I was away... big dip and big recovery... currently $8172USD/$10700CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

It's pretty much back to where it was before I went in. Woke up and decided to fire up the laptop just in time to catch the end of the rally.

I guess my bladder alarm still works.   Cool

Nothing to do now but relax in the Mexican sun and convalesce until I get my sutures removed on Thursday. I can't fly for at least a couple more weeks but at least I can head out to the jungle later this week.

I'm currently toothless with very fragile gums after bone grafts to my jaws. Needless to say, I'm on a totally liquid diet. Ever have pork tacos pureed in a blender? Delicious!

No.  G20 says crypto too small to regulate. SEC says crypto too small for ETFs.

The simplest way to regulate is at the exchange level.

They did it with finsen and will do it with exchanges listing ICO's and such that will need to be pre approved in one way or another or risk getting shut down.

This will open up the door to decentralized exchanges and hopefully the old tricks of market manipulation that has plagued the whole traditional and in the past few years crypto market will be a thing of the past.

...thanks, I've been watching a similar but cruder indicator, it's basically the old days "mine or buy?" indicator.

So far it's been good for medium to long term entry points on the secular bitcoin bull. It's really just a manifestation of the bitcoin mining cost-of-production price providing a floor to bitcoin market price and getting in at cost-of-production, i.e. the mining price ... miner's who have contracts to supply will buy at the market if market price drops below their mining costs, that's basic economics of doing business in a cut-throat industry.

Cointelegraph recently posted an article estimating that most miners are barely breaking even at $8000. There's other news outlets running articles with the same mining's no longer profitable theme.

Bullish?

A recent report by Fundstrat’s Tom Lee notes that Bitcoin (BTC) mining earnings are currently almost breaking even, as the activity has temporarily become less profitable the midst of the current decline in the markets, CNBC reported yesterday, March 15.

Lee notes in the report that the current figure for the cost of mining one bitcoin is $8,038, while BTC is trading at around $8,221 by press time, down a quarter of a percent over a 24 hour period, according to data from CoinMarketCap.

The model Fundstrat used for calculating the cost of mining one BTC includes the cost of equipment, overhead such as sustaining cooling apparatuses, and the cost of electricity, assumed to be 6 cents per kilowatt. The head of quantitative data science at Fundstrat, Sam Doctor, said that the cost of replacing equipment takes up more than half of the overall cost of mining.

Bitcoin futures on CBOE and CME aren’t trading Bitcoin.  They are cash settled and may as well be trading weather patterns.

Every now and then I feel there is a need to educate people before they rush to invest in mining hardware without considering the basic truth of network adjusted difficulty vs simply buying the coin.

I feel this is a good indicator of outside investment vs existing miners re-investing in their operation.

It is good to see that others are helping keep awareness in the forefront. It is true that even if an operation has government subsidized power costs that render it to 0 cents kwh it may prove "profitable" because in the world crypto economy every coin you make is a peace of the global pie. I can see if government subsidization can be part of a mining operation. This perk would most likely come with a contract obligation to reinvest in the local community/economy. For some that is invaluable opportunity especially if it is a place with free power abundant infrastructure / buildings and serious unemployment.

Sorry, you have to look yourself, and draw conclusions. No predictions here.

As I was browsing some other tradingview forecasts, I came across at least one bullish scenario that looks/sounds plausible.




Why do people draw bats all over charts? It never means or predicts anything

And here I thought bitcoin was drawing a Monero logo?

wait just a minute

The FUDsters have been in here claiming that BTC is going to fall to the cost of production, which they put around @1000.

Just which the hell is it?
