Here's the 24 hour volume. Even if some of it is fake, dumping 1% of the supply should be fairly easy.


Picked up some more today in my IRA to access all the forks (B2X, BCC)

Blimey. I haven't been paying enough attention clearly. That's a lot of volume in anyone's book.

I wonder whether they had a fork policy in place when the fund was created. Back then it must've seemed like an extraordinarily remote possibility. And I wonder whether the SEC is even more pleased they didn't approve funds that replicated like mushrooms.

There was a shareholder vote recently to enable it.

... it must be like a regulator's worst nightmare, first cryptocoin started proliferating and then the ICO tokens splitting out another hundreds of lines of leakage to try and track down ... now we got these massive forks of the main chain moving large amounts around ... the whole space is like a medusa and they haven't even tried cutting off heads yet.

I'm interested to see if we'll get an 8% correction (additional to whatever movement BTC makes) tomorrow on the GBTC price, due to the BCH being removed from the equation.

So far, we haven't seen it.

I doubt the average GBTC investor knows or cares about the BCC distribution.
Hope Barry has a good selling plan to get a decent price for the BCC and doesn't gouge too much in fees.

I hope the Trust has started selling that BCH. Looks like we could get a nice distribution now.

Or they were morons and sold earlier Tongue

So, is there also an active thread on BTCTalk (or elsewhere) for XBT Provider (Coin XBT) discussion? I always found that to be the more compelling investment option compared to GBTC (at least the OTC version - I know the accredited investor version is closer to NAV).

Hopefully they're doing it daily over the 90 day period that they stated. (It's annoying that we don't know the exact schedule.) The only problem I have with 90 days is that I want my distribution *now*! Smiley

There is, but it was just started recently, and no one but me has replied to it: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2310434.0

I am pretty sure they are selling OTC. I know that I got a message from Genesis Mining that they were doing daily auctions of BCH. I would only assume that such a massive influx of BCH was coming from a massive holder. So these OTC exchanges don't normally impact price that much.

If you haven't heard about what is happening with GAME, check it out.  It's revolutionizing gaming. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1266597.0

Strange. I wonder why it has so few mentions compared to GBTC. It's been around for long enough and it's available to a lot of people. Perhaps it's lack of official Bitcoin backing, though they do back it voluntarily.

Any talk of what's going to be awarded to holders price wise? Xapo appeared to be offering market rates. I don't know how they did that if it was OTC.

I feel like GBTC is the "fiat-embezzlement fund when Bitcoin goes up" fund. Bitcoin up 8% - GBTC up 3.79%. Where did the rest go?

GBTC is usually at a premium to BTC and still is 15% or so now. So this means they can and often move a little bit independently of each other.

https://xbtprovider.com/news/post/xbt-provider-ab-further-update-in-connection-with-bitcoin-cash

"As was also confirmed in the Press Release of 17th October, 2017, the Issuer has determined to implement a cash distribution plan in respect of the result of this fork. During the three-month ‘observation period’, the Issuer sold 44,471‘Bitcoin Cash’ coins, for a USD value of $14,587,291. These proceeds, less the costs of implementing and administering the distribution plan, will be available for remittance for the benefit of the holders of its bitcoin-referenced Certificates at the opening of trading on August 1st."

$328 a BCH selling price. Didn't know observation period meant dump during that observation period Tongue

Hopefully GBTC does better than that.

Yea, I was expecting a big day. I had a feeling people were telling their family members, over the thanksgiving holiday, that GBTC was an easy to get into Bitcoin. The GBTC I bought back in July 2015 is up 4,300%. I never expected such gains so fast in an IRA.

So I guess this is pretty much the GBTC and general crypto fund thread. I see that Grayscale has now released Ether Classic (ETC) and Zcash (ZEC) funds. Any thoughts on these and/or anyone invested in them or planning to?

Crypto gains for the last 18 months have been fantastic, cheers!
