Let's reflect on what happened today.

  • There was the start of a run on Bitfinex, which triggered a pump on Bitcoin
  • Fidelity has announced various institutional Bitcoin services
  • Legacy markets are unstable, with another financial crisis expected "soon"

What happens when the next financial crisis hits, and a proportion of the world's financial institutions all try to run on the banks into Bitcoin?

4. There are some well researched articles showing that the Bitfinex/USD Tether operation has essentially been responsible for the ENTIRE price rise in bitcoin right from $180 to where we are today

Yeah right. Even if you believe that Willy Bot was ENTIRELY responsible for the $1160 bubble, it had to buy 1M bitcoins. How many bitcoins has Tether bought even if you believe that not a single cent backs it? Yet it is responsible for an even greater relative increase? I'm no fan of Tether, but that sounds like "well-researched", class-A bullshit.

Meanwhile, the BFX BTC tether (mini) bubble is slowly deflating. Bitstamp parity soon again?

If they can time to develop a mechanism for the transfer of a large amount of money, then Bitcoin can go to Mars or bitcoin will be a safe haven for saving money.

This part is nonsense. They didn't "have to buy 1M bitcoins" because to do market manipulation you only need enough to create movements in the right direction. Ever noticed how Bitstamp always follows and never leads ? (At least I've never seen Bitstamp lead a bullrun, it constantly has to be "dragged out of bed" by Bitfinex).

@ Simon Says: Okay, Tether back at $1.00, yet BFX BTC/USD not under $6700? Hmm, time for Stamp and Coinbase "Pro" to come up and play, the air is great up here.

I think it's kinda cool that while finex deflates,  stamp is holding steady.  I mean it would be even better if they kind of met in the middle. Wink  But I'll take the other.

We saw the highest spike in volume in 6 months.

That is not about tether IMHO.  There is some pretty good news coming in. And the fundamentals are starting to interrupt this bear a little...

The tether incident is like a very drunk friend that comes to a great party and makes everyone laugh for a moment before he vomits in the punch bowl.

I think in the end the party might just survive.
