Folks, the bottom is in.  I received an email today from one of the Bitcoin casinos saying that due to the drop in Bitcoin price, they sold all of their BTC holdings in order to preserve their capital - and that withdrawals would take a bit longer as they would have to buy back the Bitcoins.

When you see people start making terrible decisions such as the above, you know the bottom is in.  God help them if the price rockets back up.

I'd wait for sunday to end before we make any big decisions on where the bottom is. Even after the Sunday we still aren't out of the woods for sure.

But honestly the cheaper they get the more likely they'll increase.

Also 6.50, well done.

When you see people start making terrible decisions such as the above, you know the bottom is in.  God help them if the price rockets back up.



The bottom is in when people start making terrible decisions? First, that was not a terrible decision at all by the casino. That was a smart decision to get the heck out since the price has been falling constantly and has speeded up for over 2 months now.

2nd, the bottom is in when bitcoin businesses have to start selling their coin because of the uncertainty of their main asset? I would say this does not show that the bottom is in, it shows that most businesses can not operate on bitcoins. There is no trust in bitcoin anymore and the price will continue to fall even further.

You people really need a wake up call

Also, nice buy at $6.50? If he sold those 800 bitcoins right now on mt. gox it would push the price down to around $6.50, that is how many bids are at the current price to $6.50. With a low of $5.70, that low will be most likely be broken as all lows have been taken out and have gone lower.

HAHA, my point exactly, your little 800 bit coins brought the market down to a low of $6.70. This shows how weak the bids are even at these low prices.

Smart move selling your bitcoins, you can even buy lower tomorrow.

Anyway, there's got to be a bottom somewhere, and don't tell me it's $1.  Where's the damn bottom??

That real sad part is that Bitcoin has never enjoyed any real stability. It took off way to fast, and unfortunately couldn't handle the pressure from the trolls/bears at the top.

Is there any way to see or guess the overall hash rate and graph that against pricing? I would think at this price you have got to have some miners shutting down, maybe not today but if the price stays under $8 for say two days.

Just taking a look at a few pools they all seem off a 10-15% in total reported hashing power.

[edited]
ok I just saw that Bitcoin Watch actually has a nice chart of network hash rate and yes it is way off.

Even with miners dropping like flies and realizing now is a good time to cash out?  IDK but if  I had a fat mining wallet and equipment to pay for I'd be tempted to sell now before it dropped any further.

Yeahh when bitcoin surged up, it hurt the overall economy.  Gradually, coins are making their way back down.  Then they won't jump so much.

No.  People keep selling all their stored up bitcoins so people need new money to buy them or the price drops.  Coins won't stop being generated.  There's not enough people buying coins as an investment.  You really can't buy hardly anything with them and so the only option is trade them for cold card cash.

There is plenty that you can buy with them, it's just marked up like, 25% and so there is absolutely no reason to favor btc.

Merchants need to be selling for btc BELOW their cash/credit prices, otherwise it just doesn't make sense.
