BTC lost about 200 Mrd market cap (from the top)
ETH about 60 Mrd
XRP about 100 Mrd ?

This is really huge - this has affected lots of others in this storm down - now it will be interesting, what can survive in long term.

The answer will take some time to become clear. I would guess the market will shake out a lot more players this year. Unfortunately that means more falls and volatility, but it will ultimately be a positive.

Yes - most will be sorted out by the negative momentum (all?) charts show. Only simplicity, quality + usability should make it up again. ICO's might be mostly done for now - so ETH's biggest use case....

leaves no doubt that BCT is the villan, and BCH was never at the scene of the crime, ... but comes in as the white knight in shining armor, and saves digital cash.

There's always a silver lining!!

The dip is over - Senate Testimony posted online early! (self.CryptoCurrency)

submitted 11 hours ago by Novandamis4 - 5 years account age. 500 - 1000 comment karma.

Okay, here is the link for the hearing tomorrow. Note the two PDF documents that have their testimony pre-written out.

https://www.banking.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2018/2/virtual-currencies-the-oversight-role-of-the-u-s-securities-and-exchange-commission-and-the-u-s-commodity-futures-trading-commission

They basically say, hey ICO's need to be watched so people don't get scammed, but cryptos are spurring technilogical growth and must be protected. In short, it's good news and no crazy regulations!



Maybe ima nuts but ima buying...
 i think many panic sold very quick...very late
the opportunity to gain a high % of coins is to high for too many people now.. Smiley

I'd leave the decision what to do with funds on credit cards to their owners.
Otherwise we can end up with banks deciding what we're allowed to buy with CCs as a first step, and then they will likely go further.

Hey wait, it's actually happening now  Grin

You may have possession of a credit card but all funds are strictly in ownership of the banks borrowing money on a credit card is no different that taking out a loan

What about some poor fool that got a CC with a nice 10k credit limit and bought a few BCH at $3K expecting it to double quickly only for it to now be worth $2500 and unable to afford the repayments

They are not saying you cannot use a Debit Card where you own the funds in your account just Credit Cards where the bank is loaning you their money big difference

you subscribe to the very popular and very false narrative of how money works in modern society.  And now you parrot the party line from their outpost the enemy has built inside your own brain.  Nice to meet you modern man*!  

newsflash: the loan you think you are getting whether large or small is not actually a loan.  further the contract you are mentioning is one-sided and domestically unenforceable.  Maybe that impulse control you think we need the banks to exercise for us should be exercised by them first??  I mean they are the only industry that is allowed by congress to provide their own in-house oversight AND policy!  What could go wrong right tek/


*= this assumes you do not knowingly work for the IMB and fund

And flippening will happen during a bear market for what reasons?

Because a flippening during a major crash won't confuse new entrants, the narrative is easy to understand, "bitcoin crashed 80%, then it rose again", they won't notice the flippening even happened. Stocks often  crash and then recover, so it's not unusual,  but stocks don't experience flippening

Don't forget, crypto total user base is tiny, and on the next bull millions of new users will enter the market. Previously I could not see flippening as likely as during a bull market it has to be done in the open - 'one bitcoin dropped from 20k to 1k, and another bitcoin went from 1k to 20k ... wtf.... ' Only those deeply embedded in crypto would understand what the fuck was going on, so major turn off.

What can happen now is both bitcoins get flushed down the toilet, then 'the bitcoin' rises up again ... simple, easy to understand for the millions of noobies entering the market on the next leg up.

Edit, a flippening at 20k USD would have crashed the market, we all knew that, and so many would resist it even if they prefer BCH, but now ... market is already trashed, so might as well flip

If you have to use a credit card it will even complicate, everyone would want something easy without having to bother taking care of anything.

Gentlemen - enough about PRICE, let's look at FUNDAMENTALS:

BTC doesn't work and LN can't work with a broken layer underneath it.
BTC development is a dead meme,
BTC is the target of Wall St. speculators, and has now lost its Tether price pump mechanism.
BTC has only first adopter momentum, which it loses more of each day (anyone look at the mempool or the market dominance chart lately?)

BCH works and adoption is growing more each day.
BCH development is steaming ahead.
BCH has 24x the capacity of dead BTC.
New investment will almost certainly go to the alt market looking for growth.

Watch the US Congress hearings today. Surely they will move the markets.

Dude there are 1500 altcoins now Bcash is just one of them.
Yea lets talk about that flippening meme or operation bla bla meme shall we ?
Tether is being used to buy Bcash to. If Tether dies so does all coins what's the deal ?
BTC dominance atm 36% Actually increasing the last days. Bcash 5% decreasing last days.

Please show me the oh so great adoption of Bcash show me the list it must be so huge.
Lets take a look at the transactions last 24 hours shall we https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/ 238.781 last 24 hours. https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin%20cash/ 23.176 last 24 hours

Hey wait, it's actually happening now  Grin

You may have possession of a credit card but all funds are strictly in ownership of the banks borrowing money on a credit card is no different that taking out a loan

What about some poor fool that got a CC with a nice 10k credit limit and bought a few BCH at $3K expecting it to double quickly only for it to now be worth $2500 and unable to afford the repayments

They are not saying you cannot use a Debit Card where you own the funds in your account just Credit Cards where the bank is loaning you their money big difference



Well, I'd expect a restriction on CC terms specifting explicitly what is not allowed to buy with your CC. If there's none, then the bank just gives you high rate loan without asking what you're going to do with the money. They determine upfront if you're able to repay the debt, and that's it. Applying a restriction looks like a change in the terms of your CC agreement.

Also noteworthy - requires ZERO setup. Just add CoinText as a contact in your phone and start texting away! They have numbers for each country. Wallets are automatically created for each number that receives BCH.
