It is impossible for rational thinkers to make sense of this market: Whales and pump and dump entities have destroyed it.
In addition BTC pairs are on the way out and will make BTC worthless.

Someone just pumped BTC 100 USD

will the sea overflow if you pour a glass of water in it?

$100 rise is not a pump, it is not even a rise. it is barely a movement. it is only 1% change.

That's the main problem I think apart from media perceivance.

Bitcoin is being artificially inflated and dumped by these types of people to gain profit. Bitcoin should be left alone to grow normally, however it just isn't when the market is as it is today

There are too many average Joe's that quickly react to any change in the price of BTC, and this is what's causing such huge fluctuations

Bitcoin is not a religion, so don't ever mention your faith with bitcoin. I guess it would be better if we would reword it as "believing in the potential for growth of bitcoin".

It ain't impossible to trade in this environment. In fact, that same characteristic of bitcoin is what attracts investors to invest in it and take note that bitcoin is not pumping all the time(it doesn't happen all the time). The movement we have now IMO is just normal volatility and it ain't a pump.

This market is not attracting that many investors: Institutional money will not enter the market for a long time, many retail investors are leaving and some are entering the market. This market can not grow because there are not enough investors. BTC is in peril because when people buy in other pairs there will be no need to buy it: exchanges will make it easier to buy in using a usd token and then use that to buy alts and BTC will NOT BE THE RESERVE CRYPTO.

BTC will die a slow death because of this. ETH will not suffer from this because many platforms are built on it. No platforms are built on BTC. Also greedy governments are using taxation equations that are not fair and putting people off getting involved in cryptos!

So your prime thrust is that Bitcoin will become irrelevant as you can trade alts with other pairings?

It's a big factor in Bitcoin action, but I think we're entering a phase where Bitcoin's virtues become more obvious compared to the absolute emptiness of most alts. Bitcoin is the only one that's making a decent stab of actually being decentralised and nothing can hold the tiniest candle to it in terms of battle testing.

This market is currently pretty dead. The only entities populating it are bots and scalpers which makes trading irrational and pointless. Wait for the real people and go do something else in the meantime.

Yup...  And did 'whales and pump and dumps' destroy the securities or commodities market worldwide?  No, they actually made those markets more interesting and fun.  Wink

But I understand his frustration.  And I assume he's been losing lately.  In this kind of market it's hard not not to lose.  Grin

Actually Bitcoin high price increases are attracting different speculators to buy Bitcoin.  Some of them then latter read and learn about Bitcoin and stay. Most when market settle down leave.  So saying high volatility is bad is super wrong. It is what made Bitcoin so popular that fast.

Everything looks constipated post bubble. It's a crippled market as any other one would after something so huge. You have to wait for it to be put to bed for people to get excited again. I don't think we're anywhere near that yet.

Bitcoin's movement is a trader's paradise because of its volatility. Well at least for those who are already familiar with the market but for those who are new to it, most probably it would be a disaster if they would trade using emotions. We know that cryptocurrency market is heavily manipulated that's why we should start with small amount to be familiarized with it and be able to read the movement of the whales so that we can ride with it.

There are too many average Joe's that quickly react to any change in the price of BTC, and this is what's causing such huge fluctuations

I don't think its the doing of an average Joe when there are pump and dumps of millions worth of bitcoin in just a single buy or sell. The whales are doing it but for us Average Joe, we cannot do something about it because it is the nature of the market currently. We can just try to think like them so that we can still profit from this market.

I agree with you about thinking like them but it is unpredictable.

Example: An entity buys an ALT and then pumps bitcoin. The Alt goes up and they sell the ALT at a profit and then they dump the bitcoin. This is one example. These guys are professionals and can do this any tick of the clock and it is so so so unpredictable.

Some whales can pump bitcoin or dump it but can't change the market cycle, if you trade bitcoin then you are going to suffer from whales as they make it irrational as you say but if you hodl they will suffer from you.

It's actually very simple;

If you can't handle this market, then why bother investing in it?

If you consider this market to be impossible to trade, then why bother trading it?

If the long term is the only thing you care about, then why bother with the short term fluctuations?

To me this market makes perfect sense. I don't expect anything from it short term speaking because I know how brutal and manipulative it can be. Open the charts and see for yourself how insane this market has been throughout the years; the only certainties thus far have been the bottom development and the constantly increasing price, everything else is just rubbish being the direct result of people's fear, greed, etc.

Whale manipulation was present since the very beginning, which means that by your logic the market shouldn't exist in current times.

This market is not attracting that many investors: Institutional money will not enter the market for a long time, many retail investors are leaving and some are entering the market. This market can not grow because there are not enough investors. BTC is in peril because when people buy in other pairs there will be no need to buy it: exchanges will make it easier to buy in using a usd token and then use that to buy alts and BTC will NOT BE THE RESERVE CRYPTO.

you are looking at things in a very pessimistic way, and it is true that we need institutional investors, but you should see that institutional investors will only come in when the regulations are very clear and banks are not creating barriers for the people they want buy bitcoin. If many banks and governments and even companies like Visa and Mastercard were not creating many obstacles for people using bitcoin, then today the price of bitcoin would be much higher and we would have many more investors entering the crypto world

BTC will die a slow death because of this.

bitcoin will survive, do not be too pessimistic


ETH will not suffer from this because many platforms are built on it. No platforms are built on BTC.

So you're campaigning to btc die and ETH survive? this is your true intention


Example: An entity buys an ALT and then pumps bitcoin. The Alt goes up and they sell the ALT at a profit and then they dump the bitcoin. This is one example. These guys are professionals and can do this any tick of the clock and it is so so so unpredictable.

Many people buy first BTC and with BTC buy altcoins and sell these altcoins to have more btc and hold btc. BTC is the priority for people and altcoins are a means to get more BTC

Some whales can pump bitcoin or dump it but can't change the market cycle, if you trade bitcoin then you are going to suffer from whales as they make it irrational as you say but if you hodl they will suffer from you.

Whales simply make waves in this market and eventually the waves will recede. Theyay influence pumps and dumps only for a certain time. One can either drown in these waves or ride it. And for most long term hodlers, watch it from a safe distance. They can't destroy the market since they're benefitting from it as well

$100 rise is not a pump, it is not even a rise. it is barely a movement. it is only 1% change.
Not only that, it's a mistake to think that a whale is responsible for this.  It certainly could be, but it's more likely to be just normal market fluctuations and much less than what bitcoin usually experiences, I might add.  I'm wondering how long OP has been into bitcoin if this is making him decry all the whales in the world--while bitcoin is gaining, no less.

Sit tight and you'll see much greater volatility ahead, and don't blame whales for whatever happens.  There are a lot of speculators around, most of them not being rich by any means.  It's a cumulative effect from the buying and selling of everyone.

topics like this are only created because price is going down (or has gone down). otherwise when price was rising nonstop last year and we had one of the biggest rises in the history of bitcoin (from $10k to $20k in 17 days) people like OP weren't complaining about how "whales are destroying the market". but now a 1% natural rise is a pump and dump!!!
