Usually every time there's a big drop in the price, I expect him to post something. (And I really enjoy his posts Smiley

Like many guys here, I get busy from time to time, and just don't have much time to post. Also, once you've posted for a while you've experienced just about everything (at least it seems) and so you feel like you'd be repeating yourself.

I was thinking about Bitcoin price today, pondering the Bitcoin economy (including "how much money is entering the system each day?"), price vs. difficulty, etc. but I haven't reached any conclusions or inspirations to post anything.

Except for this:
The recent release of merged mining is going to have the effect of inflating the # of Bitcoins beyond the usual expansion rate. (Like any alternate blockchain, that is.) You're basically creating more stores of value, chasing the same amount of $$$ coming into the system each day. That's why I wasn't surprised to see a large drop. Basically the "bonus NMC" -- which we were all so happy to treat as a bonus, and for a while they are -- are being baked into the price right now. That is to say, in a few days you won't be able to make a small profit (or break even) WITHOUT the extra NMC income.

The constant erosion of profit continues.  I think if selling video cards were easier, there'd be a much larger drop in hashrate these days Smiley
And then there's human psychology. One you've set it all up, there's not as much incentive to quit -- after all, you've invested all that time, right?

It's getting harder and harder to make a buck though...

You can not roll a BitCoin, but you can rollback some. Cheesy

I woke up today, thinking the price of BTC was 2.50 -- of course, the first thing I did was visit Mt. Gox! 
This is one dream I wish hadn't come true.

I think most of those hanging on groaned unsurprised. Unfortunately, the bubble is still popping.

AngelusWebDesign, you should also visit the Speculation board and make some points there, even people might not like to accept the truth there...

It is "hard" to sell a video card?

272 HD 6950s for sale.

I do agree about the psychology aspect.  Low prices (relative to difficulty) may discourage new rigs but it much longer to encourage people to sell off a rig.
