Breaking: Tether Silently Updates Its Terms – USDT May Not Be 100% Backed By FIAT

https://cryptopotato.com/breaking-tether-silently-updates-its-terms-usdt-may-not-be-100-backed-by-fiat/

What's the difference between a USDT being backed by a dollar if the dollar isn't backed by anything? People pay so much attention and attention to it. It doesn't make any difference to me, I made my choice last year and I don't worry about anything. Just waiting.

Breaking: Tether Silently Updates Its Terms – USDT May Not Be 100% Backed By FIAT

https://cryptopotato.com/breaking-tether-silently-updates-its-terms-usdt-may-not-be-100-backed-by-fiat/

What's the difference between a USDT being backed by a dollar if the dollar isn't backed by anything? People pay so much attention and attention to it. It doesn't make any difference to me, I made my choice last year and I don't worry about anything. Just waiting.

Certainly, I am not interested in pumping the value of the dollar, but you are living pie in the sky if you believe that the dollar is neither backed by anything nor has any value.

When I got into bitcoin in late 2013, I was considering various ways to diversify out of the dollar because nearly every single investment that I had was dollar dependent.  So hedging out allows for some risk diversification in case the dollar crashes.  

Since late 2013, the dollar has done pretty well, especially given the ongoing printing shenanigans, and even exposure of real nonsense discrediting of the USA in various ways, and part of that success remains relative confidence compared with other currencies in which you may consider placing your value.

Even though ongoing dollar shenanigans seems to continue including ongoing USA government corruption concerns, there is no real immediate impending doom concerns for the dollar - though I would not write off possible sudden downfall and reevaluation - and surely bitcoin has decent likelihood to become one of those kind of value magnets.  

It still seems that those of us who are investing in bitcoin are fairly lucky to both recognize a continued likely value flow into bitcoin in the coming years, but let's not fool ourselves into some kind of belief that either the dollar has no value or backing and is going to implode without some kind of decently long and drawn out fight, if it comes to that.  

Furthermore, even though I believe that currently bitcoin is secure enough to experience another 10x to 100x value increase (at least spike  --- maybe not sustain), there are still not enough bitcoin user-friendly or even institutionally diversified systems in place to really take on or absorb a significant percentage of incumbent dollar-backed and dollar-based systems.

Tether is probably a fractional reserve scheme, also they are now clearly saying that they use money to buy "other assets" than dollar and that (if I understand  well) they give loans to "affiliates".

That's pretty much a plain admission of scam to me. They are basically acting as a filthy bank, gambling your money for (their) profits.

Am I understanding well the significance of the statement?

BitcoinTalk Lost A Third Of Its Users In February

https://www.ccn.com/bitcointalk-lost-a-third-of-its-users-in-february

"The BitcoinTalk forum lost a third of its referrals from the bitcoin community in February, according to available traffic data from website analytics firm SimilarWeb."



And yet roach is still here...  Roll Eyes

There are multiple reasons.

1) The bear market. Basically, people lost interest in crypto.

2) The new merit system. Many of us got our legendary hero ranks before this new system and Many of us would still got so many merits and become legendaries in the new system too but newbies are very afraid of it. Most of them simply don't care about posting quality content anymore. Just spam and go.

3) No more good sig camps. And the requirements for the existing ones are very high so again, newcomers don't like it. All newb accounts are spamming ICO crap.

The major reason is the bear market probably.

Bitcoin lost more than half of its ATH value so losing only 1/3 of the forum members/activity is kinda success. Could have been worse.
4) centralization by moderators.
5) accusation
6) Porn, drugs .. etc

I was waiting for a decision, between bullish and bearish scenarios, since 6h PSAR was close to flip to bullish, and 12h PSAR close to flip to bearish.
With this bi-directional spike, both flipped, so no clue how this will unfold... Roll Eyes

Where do you think we are compared to 2015? Or do you see it unfolding differently than back then?

If this will play similar to 2015, then about 6 months from now weekly MACD should cross into positive.
But I suspect this bear market is of a higher order than the 2014 one, so I wouldn't count on a quick recovery.

Think he means when we cross over the base line or zero line.


For those of you that need to bone up on your indicator knowledge...here is a start.
https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/macd.asp

Here is one example we might be experiencing.
Quote
"False positive" divergence often occurs when the price of an asset moves sideways, such as in a range or triangle pattern following a trend. A slowdown in the momentum - sideways movement or slow trending movement - of the price will cause the MACD to pull away from its prior extremes and gravitate toward the zero line even in the absence of a true reversal.

No, weekly MACD (the signal) is deeply into negative now, but MACD divergence has crossed into green 5 weeks ago.
And the weekly MACD signal also made a bearish divergence with the April 2018 MACD low (both lower price and lower MACD).
What I mean is that the weekly MACD signal should cross into positive, in order to make the case for a bull market, but I don't see this happening soon.
In the meantime, I hope the 5200$ scenario becomes true, I am still long (bought just before the Feb 8th pump).
