I don't see how any macroeconomic or political events matter to crypto. All ups and downs are determined by exchanges, whales and insiders and they don't care about macro events. It's not like that real people investing influences the price that much on short term basis.
Mt.Gox bots did more to bitcoin price increase than Cypriot banking crisis or war in Ukraine for example which barely had any effect and couldn't stop the post Gox bear market.

Right now a major event is the OKEx moving to Malta.

I wanted a tattoo done in UV ink so it only shows under special light not in a business meeting

Well, that wouldn't be a tattoo then. A tattoo is commitment. Own that shit.

/start program business meeting

And one interesting side effect of the prototype is, it emits UV light.

Erm Janice, can you tell me why there's a fluorescent spunking penis entering your mouth from the side there?





just put one a normal one and you will be very happy.... i think you don't go too a business meeting in a t-shirt and shorts ?

Yesterday I was at a keynote of a CEO of a prepay card and loyalty scheme technology company.

At the questions bit, they had time for 1 question. I was 3 rows back, perfect one off opportunity ever to get his take on crypto.


I raised my arm.....  and I didn't stop at one question I kept pushing back another quick bit further.



Q: What is your take on block chains and crypto technology? Prepay cards were/are a popular exit ramp. where do you see this going?

A: We are not allowed now VISA and main banks and regulations no longer will allow it

Q: why

A: Because we have a responsibility to the customer if they put 20k on the card it cant be worth 5K tomorrow.

Q: so do you think they are scared

A: no blurted some stuff about bitcoin can only do 9 transactions a second. Cited some Visa volume examples 1000's tps etc.

Q: I said ok but that's only one chain and technology, even loyalty schemes could have their own block chain type technologies.

I got cut off and he hustled out.




So, WOW a chance to get the genuine inside track. This is what the likes of VISA are claiming as their reasons.

They didn't mind for me when gold value went down, or the £ for that matter. They weren't worried about my balance then. Quite lame.

Another thing he kept bringing the answer back to bitcoin I didn't actually ask bitcoin though.

Bitcoin != exchange rate

By the end of 2018-
  • Michael Novogratz - The former Fortress hedge fund manager predicts that it might reach $40,000.
  • SAXO Bank predicts it might crash (later in 2018) but reach up to $60,000 before crashing.
  • Dav Chapman - The CEO of Octagon Strategy predicts it to reach up to $100,000.
Whereas,
Tom Lee - A wall street strategist expects it to reach $25,000 by 2022. As it reaches nearly 18k last year thew 25k prediction sounds just okay but there are chances that it would occur earlier.
From the above "predictions" bitcoin by the end of 2018 could be anywhere between $25,000 - $100,000.
HOPEFULLY.

From the 25th of January: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-XTAf3rA2o ('Tom Lee predicts Bitcoin to $25,000 by end of 2018')

I can't see Trump starting a war with Syria, knowing the chain reaction it could cause and considering that Assad probably didn't do a tenth of what we are accusing him of. There must be something else at play.

It's the same proxy war shit that's been going on for the last 70 years...
Not quite. For the past several decades lefties have been at the wheel. This is the first time we are in charge.

Lefties like Dubya starting the Iraq war while all the pacifist right wingers were in the streets marching against it.  
It's not a matter of war or not war. War is a constant. It's a matter of motives, the politics that goes on along with it and competence.

The war in Syria is just a front. Russia is expanding their cheap LNG output via Gazprom to countries like China and Iran. Key pipelines run through parts of Syria. The U.S. doesn't like this expansion, as it directly competes with sales of LNG from the U.S., Qatar and Australia. The U.S. has levied sanctions against Russia in an attempt to thwart LNG construction contracts and slow down their expansion.  Needless to say, Russia is getting more and more irritated with U.S. foreign policy.

I think Syria is also the only Russian naval base in the Med.  Russian naval base at Crimea has to pass through the Bosporus strait of Turkey.  Other than that, they have a resupply base in Vietnam but that’s obviously vulnerable.

You can't even dream of competing by shipping LNG by boat versus pipelines.

Imho it's that (((they))) are now going for the final step as foreseen by
the Pike's letter (
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_masonsknightstemplar15.htm
), with the Vlad playing the white hat nationalist "antisemite" (because
anti-Israel) role of (((uncle Adolf))) ( https://hitler-the-jew-and-the-faked-wwii.blogspot.com ), and after WW3 (which the Vlad and
associates will likely win) pwn the whole world, because the Vlad is
another of their assets since day 1, while Israel will be holocausted,
so to revive the goym guilt and submission and the refunds.

It’s an bit of a jump to go from LNG pipelines to the Illuminati.   The Qatari Royal Family doesn’t need to be associated with some medieval religious group to start wars for profit.

I know the community isn’t ready for it but I think we have seen the bottom for 2018.  This isn’t 2014.

In any event we will find out soon enough.  Shorts still at September 2017 levels.  We all know what happened after September.

If you're at the other end of some pipelines the story might be a bit different.
Russia doesn't like pipelines from Qatar reaching eastern Europe and loosing its monopoly and its main trump card in negotiation with the EU. How is this for a theory???

But with a 23% increase 7d, I'm in such a good mood that all the mentioned above can stuck a damn pipe from where their gas is coming out Smiley))

bitcoin bandwidth increased alot since last year. Many exchanges adapted transaction batching and LN is on it's way. bcash is dead.
