Besides you don't know, if our trusted volume exchanges (I look at you china) are not cheating on us. As long as there is not enough transparency, we should not rule out anything.

Always wrong until not.

2 more bids posted for $40 share.

Question is, at what volume to we start to take these prices, let alone the 'ETF', seriously? Not Joking
If someone is willing to pay $400 for 10BTC (100 shares) with the market at $226, who gives a shit? He's an idiot


A $40 bid on 100 shares means they are paying $4000 for 10 BTC, so I assume that was a typo. Smiley I do agree with your concerns regarding liquidity. It will be interesting to see how well it tracks the price once it starts trading.

Not a typo - I was saying that that a bid of $40 for 100 shares translates to $400/coin for a whopping 10BTC. Sorry if not clear  Wink

Picture some office in New York City piled high with papers with a few guys in there who totally don't give a shit about any of these company shares talking about sports and taking frequent smoke breaks.

It takes up to 6+ weeks to transfer shares so that we can integrate bitcoin into this shit, prehistoric system.

Yeah but this time it really is the fault of people dealing with this professionally, and not some amateurs who are promising the delivery of their mining gear within the next two weeks(TM). I at least expect from them that they pull through with the work within a reasonable amount of time.

Still, it would be very interesting to see these shares trade above current BTC spot prices. Most of the bids are low volume, sure, but it will still be a historic moment for BTC when the first shares changed hands.

Yes... It will be a historical moment because most of those bidders are probably noobs thinking they are bargaining a whole bitcoin at $40.... They will get crushed in seconds, -50% instant loss... Great!

Those "bids", all for exactly 100 shares, cannot be real bids from end investors.  They must be only token amounts that the level-2 brokers entered only to have their names listed on that page.

The lower-tier brokers, if they care to keep their clients,  should be telling them to wait until trading starts before buying in.

Academic interest in bitcoin only. Not owner, not trader, very skeptical of its longterm success.

It doesn't matter at what price they change hands, the only thing that matters is that those shares of first shares traded it in such a way. I don't really think that those bids are done by mistake. Either they are just token bids, or someone just wants the first shares Smiley

So... when do people think GBTC shares will actually go for sale? For some reason I got the impression it was going to be yesterday/today.

It looks like no one really knows an answer. All we can do at this point is guess and trust people who have some experience in this field. I think it should happen within the next month, but I'm really not familiar with the processes required for such a trade.

Sounds like they can be sold any minute now!

If you check bitcoinwisdom, you can see that the market doesn't give a shit about this. And for good reason.

I'd give it a week before concluding what the market thinks about this.
