https://bitcoinist.com/gemini-backed-bitcoin-interest-account/

6.2% annual interest for a Bitcoin account sounds appealing. The idea is good and may attract many investors. But what if BlockFi turns out to be the new Bitconnect? Who cares that it is backed by Gemini?Any thoughts on this?

seems untenable really.

but. i did look around the site. no taxable event moving a coin there (or out i presume?). interest paid in same crypto as deposit. 1099 tax form sent with interest made for tax purposes. so you are taxed only on the interest. not sure how they figure that in USD when interest was in btc..

if you dont mind losing it, might be worth a play (for some). 1 btc or 45 eth minimum.

of course "not you keys not your btc."

risky but if you dont mind losing it all it might be appealing to some. as it would earn 6% that the btc in yer cold wallet doesnt.

nice, till you lose 100% of it. ooops

I follow one simple rule. I never do any "business" with anyone if I don't understand their business model and exactly know how THEY are profiting in the dealing. As I can't see here how they could profit from it it's a no-go for me.
By using the deposited coins to trade. Which makes it anything but risk-free even if you ignore general counter-party risk and hacks.

There's no way they can sustain 6.2% annual Bitcoin interest unless they pay it in fiat or virtually nobody deposits/stays deposited.

Sounds sketchy but some might take the risk (not me).

The light that reflects off of cryptoqueen is indeed pleasant to perceive.

This i also do not know.... gonna Ask her myself.

The light Will reflect less of her @the end of the vacation i guess... (we need to take Some Philippine colour) Cheesy

Is it me or we are pointing downwards for the first time ever??  Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

It's you.

I have noticed that you have a kind of negative nancy pattern of seeing bitcoin price direction related things.

Having lost the sum i lost (ok ok, fiat unrealised profits)..made me a sensible permabull.

I´m not negative about BTC at all, Juan,

O.k.... maybe I overstated the matter a little bit, but just the fact that you are struggling with unrealized profits and considering them as unrealized profits, shows that you are having some framing difficulties.

I will concede that this particular correction was greater than I expected, at this time, because I thought that the more drug out bull market of this time around, compared with the 2013 upsurges, meant that BTC had not yet experienced a blow off top.  Therefore, I was not expecting the correction to be so great nor the crypto winter to be so long. 

But we are where we are and we just need to deal with it and attempt to figure out ways to both ride it out and to profit from the situation, to the extent that such profit is feasible and without taking too much unnecessary risk.

I sure hope that a year from now, BTC prices are higher, but I have to accept that a year from now, they could actually be lower from now.  Either way, I am not selling in these price levels and I continue to accumulate with whatever extra cashflow that I can muster up.... even if it may take longer than expected for my current purchases to become profitable... two years seems on the outside of likelihood, but there are some rare possible outcomes that could cause the situation to drag out even longer than the worse case scenarios currently in reasonable contemplation.

For those wondering when @Fidelity @DigitalAssets is going live: They've been live for months! They said it was launching Q1, never issued a press release -- but have been on-boarding institutional clients for #crypto custody + clearing.

Consolidation continues around the 0.382 fib as support builds for another run at $4k+
1h


Stronger trading volumes continue to build as the price hodls in the $3.85k range. It seems likely that some profit taking and consolidation will take place in the short term while in the mid term this weekly bullish trend continues to gather momentum for a retest of resistance levels.
4h


support and resistance at the 0.618 fib.

The European Central Bank announced today they will be handing out some "fresh funding" for banks.

It's their temporary solution to a system wide problem.

Creating money for them is as simple as clicking a button.

Buy bitcoin, bye banks.

[edited out]

Perhaps our Roach and his future lover Gembitz were slain as the bear market morphed into a new Baby Bull Market.  Wink

I am not going to go so far as to say that there is no such thing as a "baby bull market" but surely we are not in such a market yet.

The evidence seems pretty strong that we are currently in a bear market... however, subsequently, if the current bottom of $3,122 is not breached, and better yet $3,700 is NOT breached then there could be some later BTC price behavior that causes us to subsequently describe this period as the beginning of a bull market (aka baby bull)... but we are very far from such a defined state, and it remains about a 52% to 48% proposition that the bottom is NOT in.

The market has been bullish for 82 days since the low of 3122. For Bears to claim continuation of a bear market they will have to break this low. The burden of proof is on them. Its a Baby Bull Market until then. Bears never broke the Jan 15 low in 2015 and the rest of 2015 was a bull market. We are in the same pattern until proven otherwise.

Its a Bull Market ya know.

Seems to me Lambie Slayer is a nice person. Would like to meet him @ the 100k party next year.  Cool

Very much looking forward to meeting you sir. 100k will be a beautiful day Grin
