Proof of Keys / Proof of Trust / Bitcoin Independence Day
https://www.proofofkeys.com

Folks, the goal should be for everyone to have their keys by January 3rd. Not everyone to withdraw at that time! Also the goal should be to create a culture of permanently holding your own private keys and make it a best practice for every single purchase every time. Every single Satoshi off these exchanges every time! Think about how many people say.. I only have a few dollars worth of bitcoin so my small amount doesn't matter. Wrong! If you added all of those people up you start to appreciate that the cumulative effect of this mentality is devastating as it gives these bank backed exchanges power to control world's largest Bitcoin wallets and hence the price of bitcoin! It's imperative that we speak to our family and friends and fellow community members about the urgency of removing all of Bitcoin off of these exchanges as soon as possible regardless of how much (or little) they own. This is our opportunity to take the power back from these Legacy financial institutions that have obvious conflict of interest with respect to Bitcoin's success! Let's make this happen!

Of course it would fuck the market up if everyone withdrew their BTC from the exchanges. It would probably have the effect of driving the fiat value up, since bids would be piling up and no asks. However, there are quite a few day traders involved in the markets. I doubt that everyone is going to heed this advise.

You are assuming that FIAT will be left at exchanges, while Bitcoin will be withdrawn. That might not be the case. Because, mostly, the guy who is selling, is buying as well.

As much as I love the idea I doubt that many people will follow through. People have been told time and again to not leave coins on exchanges except for trading purposes, yet this warning is rarely heeded. I think the only ones that actually would follow through, are the ones that don't have their coins on exchanges to begin with.

Either way, if even just a few more people end up with holding their own private keys, that'd already be a net positive.

the thing is, those who are trading bitcoin are not interested in taking back the power, the benefits of "bitcoin", and they don't give a crap about giving the control to "institutions" or banks,... they care about fiat and how much of it they can earn. they will never withdraw their money/bitcoins from exchanges emotionally. they will continue sticking around as long as there is profit to be made.
your title is completely irrelevant to the topic by the way!

bitcoin is Proof of Work not Proof of Stake, if it was PoS then what you said about taking the power back from these Legacy financial institutions would have been true because they could affect the network with their large stake that was given to them by their users.
and price is not something that a single exchange can affect only by having a large amount of deposited bitcoins. the days of MtGox are long gone when they controlled more than 85% of the volume. nowadays you would be lucky to get anything close to 10% of the total volume and with that you can't manipulate anything. not to mention that there are already so many whales manipulating the price that exchanges are lost among them.

It might make it more volatile. It would remove seller liquidity from the market -- can't post sell orders if you've withdrawn your coins from the exchange! All else equal, this should drive prices up.

I'm really not sure how big this "Independence Day" movement is, though. I've seen it mentioned on Twitter a handful of times, but I don't know how much it'll affect the price.

A significant portion of all bitcoin mined is already held by individuals at their own private key. This movement wants to test solvency of exchanges before the next bull run.

That is a very good point. A big number of people who are currently holding BTC are more interested in the opportunity to get profit from price changes, it's just a way to make more usd or eur or whatever else

The aspect of regaining control over what's yours seems to be rather important as well though:

Also the goal should be to create a culture of permanently holding your own private keys and make it a best practice for every single purchase every time. Every single Satoshi off these exchanges every time!

IMHO introducing newcomers to the concept of securing their own coins is more important in the long run than ensuring that all these exchanges are solvent. By now I'm less worried about insolvent exchanges than about users getting complacent with centralized custodial services. It's the mindset of trustlessness that people need to be reminded of.

I really like this initiative. I think it will be useful for the community. The community will be able to check the exchange for honesty and test the network.

Bitcoin was created to fight the banking system and now it loses. Governments are fighting against decentralization, so bitcoin does not currently have development

Historically people have preferred to place trust. You cant wad it off just in a day. Rather, we can try to make sure, that trust is honored and another Mt. Gox does not happen.

I was thinking withdrawing to our individual wallets could cause a possible price spike, by creating a kind of scarcity in the centralized market. Another thing is that, the fiat might gain dominance in these exchanges using a pair against altcoins because of limited bitcoin.
