Word is that banks and financial money is really starting to look more and more at bitcoin and crypto. Sec dealing with coins, coinbase becoming a bank, things have been looking on the up and up recently.

Hashrate vs Price all time (log scale):





Interesting. Log scale shows an almost inverse correlation between hash rate and price.  I wonder if this holds true for more than just the past year (didn't realize graph was all time  Cheesy). Did price dip with that big increase in hashpower recently?

Of course correlation =/= causation.

I am seeing a feedback loop. The price spikes lead to investment in mining gear and the resulting increase in hash power leads to the next spike in price which fuels the next round of investment in mining gear, etc., etc.

Don't forget that hash rate being deployed now was likely ordered in Q1 18 or in the bubble. Assuming 10c power or lower cost of bitcoin production is still <$6k. That said if hashrate grows at the rate it has been since start 2016 you won't ROI on an S9 at $600 for the miner, or even on one of the proposed new GMO 7nm miners at $2k. So if I ran the biggest asic mining company in the world with a revenue of circa $2.4bn last year I would either be looking to support/increase the price of Bitcoin and by extension bcash so that my product looks more attractive, diversify my company into AI or other computational heavy production, or IPO my company (or all 3)......

Google trends for Bitcoin looks pretty poor right now.

Good morning all.

Fuzzy waves continuing mostly up and sideways.

Summer 2018 sunglasses edition

The market is slowly recovering from the crypto winter we experienced. While not the explosive rise some may be looking for, the steady price and moderate gains are sign's of renewed interest from users and institutional investors as alike. With greater clarification coming from governing bodies and the realization that bitcoin and crypto are viable alternatives to legacy banking, increased adoption and speculation are likely to continue and increase over time.

While this might seem painfully obvious to most, sometimes spelling things out simply is what is needed.

This recovery..or rut we have been in..what ever you care to call it, is due to many factors but the one that weighs the most imho is the MtGox coins. Until there is closure on those coins I feel the market is going to hover in this price range until mid August, early September.

This coming Monday and Thursday look to be interesting. Can we get back over $8k?  #dyor #stronghands

Google trends for Bitcoin looks pretty poor right now.

Exactly, Hashrate looks to be a lagging indicator due to equipment production time, with miners banking on future increases in price since they've already missed the last run up.

I would argue that Google trends is also a lagging indicator, albeit on a much shorter time frame. Price has to increase first before interest is stoked enough to spur newcomers to search for bitcoin. There is less need for already indoctrinated bitcoiners to search, they already know where they want to go to buy/research/etc.

I would further argue that price is a lagging indicator of fundamental analysis and good news. Whereas FUD is a nearly instantaneous indicator of price decreases, good news takes a while to build enough confidence to trigger buying much less FOMO.

Going back to google trends, the more people already know about bitcoin, the less impact it will have on search engines. MSM has replaced a lot of the need to google, now that CNBC etc have a price ticker and reporting.

You don't see the stock markets responding that much to google trends even in times of wild volatility. Bitcoin still drawing more searches than key stock market terms.

In fact, stock market search spikes on google trends seem inversely correlated to price - they represent major sell offs! Careful what you wish for.

Well, only started seriously looking into it when I retired, so... yeah.

In fact, lemme just go ahead and add you to my ignore list, so we can minimize the chance of having these sorts of flirtatious posts, in the future.

Bitcoin is the weapon that started the that will end the currency war

You could go back as far as nixon and the gold standard to see the beginning of the currency war even then again just after world war 2.

Remember you do not invade 80 countries in over 70 years because your citizens want you to overthrow that "Inhumane" regime.

You do not tell your citizens you want the currency changed and this is why we are invading.

As bitcoin is a main competitor they will throw everything at it, and have been for a while now

http://fortune.com/2018/06/07/blockchain-firm-r3-is-running-out-of-money-sources-say/

mike hearn's pet R3 is running out of money.

how do you run out of over $100 million? do you eat the money? do you shovel cash into your heating boiler? in silicon valley is a million dollars a euphemism for $10,000?

at least if you throw 100 million dollars at a film you usually wind up with something to watch at the end of it. this'll finish with some strings of 1s and 0s with 0 purpose.

Thanks for that link infofront.  I watched the about 30 minute interview with Novograts, and I found interesting the quick survey from the audience in the beginning.   Thus, no brainer that Novograts remains bullish about both the bitcoin space and crypto overall, while the audience shows that they are quite a bit less bullish about bitcoin/crypto than Novograts - yet seemingly more bullish than the level of bitcoin's current investment ratios.
