Ok seems we're at a bit of a crossroad in history with Bitcoin right atm with a fairly recent high of $32, a recent low of $6, and a current value of $10. BTC price was in freefall only a few days ago but it seems to have had a reprieve..but where to from here?

Though I believe in the longer term Bitcoin has a positive future, the question remains as to whether it has yet reached its record low since its high of $32? Are we at a plateau before another drop down or another step up? The next chapter in the life of Bitcoin is due to open shortly, but the question on everyone's lips is : -

Whats it gonna be next for Bitcoin? Which way will the worm turn?

A Dump?

A Pump?

Or a Pump 'n Dump double whammy?

Lets have a poll and see what the general consensus is around here.

my interpretation is, that, if you look at the whole chart history at a logarithmic scale, this has more or less already happened. a few 10% up or down doesn't matter. the entire operation is still in its infancy and one should not think too much about the last months.

If people fit straight lines onto log-scale price charts, the following crash doesn't usually involve soft landings.

I used to think that it will continue the long slow slide until autumn - but then I was reminded about the conference next week.  There will be lots of media.  It looks like it is not yet widely advertised here at this forum - but I am sure that the price will start going up even before the event.

Not to be nit picky, but you're talking about Bitcoin exchanges, not Bitcoin itself.  But to answer your question, I think we'll settle on a fairly stable rate of around $8 more or less, and we'll see slow organic growth from here on out that continues the curve we saw in May before everything went ape shit.

Good poll.  The best thing about this poll so far is that it shows that there is a good likelihood that nobody knows what the hell they're talking about.

Lesson?  USE THE CHARTS AND THE DATA to navigate the market.  Don't listen to the "buy buy buys" and the "sell sell sells."

I do not think "slow organic growth" is possible with bitcoins at this stage. Price seeking will always go in a seesaw pattern, with rapid jumps up and selloffs followed by a slow slide down. As long as any large investor will cause a +50% growth, it will always follow this pattern - large money buys, then smaller profit seekers sell, then value slowly moves down on miners selling. If there are many investors, this cycle repeats before the price reaches previous lows, thus on average moving up. But never slowly growing, not possible here yet Smiley

My guess is a slow jagged slide downwards until 1) the thieves have chashed out fully and 2) lots more vendors come onboard.

Ok the poll's closed and it looks like the mood is still slightly bearish.

The general consensus is that a pump will be the next chapter in the life of Bitcoin with a good proportion of voters expecting a dump shortly after. However a good proportion of voters are leaning towards a possible dump without the pump also, so I guess we can safely conclude that the next chapter of Bitcoin will include a dump in one form or another.

Let the games begin!  Grin

So it seems since the poll closed the first major move has in fact been a bit of a pump - yet the majority of voters predicted a dump would occur before a pump &/or that there would be a dump without a pump. Yet still we have no DUMP?? Weeeeeelllllll...stay tuned for the next exciting episode of Bitcoin!

The view from my window shows the dumpers with a very slight edge, but the pumpers are holding in there rather well. Wonder who's gonna run out of gas first?

Yea Im betting (literally) its the sellers buying smaller amounts back at a higher price to try and generate support. When the rally fails they dump again.  Roll Eyes

My vote is it will be worth 100USD per BTC before XMass, and then the upward speed will start to stabilize.

Why? Because believing in that reality makes me happy, that's why.

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
