Please use this thread to only post confirmed news from confirmed sources to help everyone understand what is obvious - bitcoin is in a downtrend to oblivion.  

My latest find comes, of course, from official sources in China and details how the Chinese government is planning a massive 99% attack on the blockchain.  I'll put the main points below, but anyone can check the facts from the source:

1.  Chinese offials delcare bitcoin a global financial virus
2.  Officials from other nations are in agreement with china China, including the US
3.  The Chinese government has millions of petahashes ready to deploy on the blockchain to destroy the protocol
4.  In addition to attacking the blockchian, China will sell all their mined bitcoins on MtGox

It's obvious bitcoin has gone as far as it can go, but any other thoughts about this devastating news?

bitcoin price cannot be sustained above $10k <---- scientific fact

Really?

Do you actually *know* Chinese?

I thought you'd stopped trying to "short" Bitcoins way back - the recent news in China has brought back out your "uber inner Bear"?

Is this satire?

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

Yup, I've heard from some well placed friends in HK that there are mentions of PLA Unit 61398 already working on ways to cripple bitcoin. They'll likely attack the network aspect of BTC instead of attempting double spend. A vast chunk of btc's value would vaporise on the basis of it being vulnerable to delay even though it wasn't breached. The attack will begin any day now, I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't sold yet.

Here's some terrible English language bad news.  Summary below:

1.  Overstock.com started accepting bitcoin
2.  They did $100,000+ sales in 24hours

The bad news is that despite this, the bitstamp price is below $1000.  This just demonstrates that bitcoin has reached its saturation point.  Even without governments planning large scale attacks on bitcoin, it would likely die this year anyway.

bitcoin price cannot be sustained above $10k <---- scientific fact

Why would China invest in destroying Bitcoin, when they can (or have) banned it?

Millions of petahashes? LOL have you put that into perspective ?!?!

For one million petahashes you need 40000000000 25 GH/s BFL Miners.
For one million petahashes you need 4347000000 230 GH/s Rack Mount Bitcoin Miners from BFL which don't exist yet.
For one million petahashes you need 1667000000 600 GH/s Mining cards from BFL which don't exist yet.

Or in the range of 999810000000 videocards Smiley

LOL stop with the FUD!


@anyone: Correct me if my calculations are off.

Calculations don't matter when we can check the facts from the confirmed sources.  Just read the link I provided.  It's all there in plain Chinese.

Since US companies and wallstreet are investing in Bitcoin would a chinese attack on bitcoin protocol be an act of war against the US?

I took back my post since someone said they we're attacking the network and not gaining >51% of the mining rate network.
Anyway millions of petahashes is rediculous.

Actually Peter Schiff said exactly that!  That overstock accepting bitcoin as payment is bad news for the price because HODLERS  ( he didnt use that word) will spend their coins and will flood the market... Wink
