With stocks you have people who buy them and are “long” and make money when they go up and people who sell them short and make money when they go down. I certainly would not want to short bitcoin but is that even possible? Stocks are kind of held in equilibrium because people want them to go up and down so they can make money depending on their position. With bitcoin it seems the huge upswings are in part due to no one wanting it to go down. Everyone who invests wants it to go up or am I wrong?
