Fuck all of you dipshit motherfuckers who have the power to make my assets lose over 10% overnight. I never even had a fucking chance to sell. Problem is I need the cash right now, not the coins, and am forced to sell cheap.

I hope you get all raped in hell for eternity.

What did you need the coins for and why didn't you sell them right away?

And if you went short and made 10% overnight, you'd probably be quite smug about it.

I sent them to the exchange but it takes approximately an hour for 6 confirmations. I had to go to sleep yesterday, you know, waiting for new blocks is not my hobby. not a programmer so I dont have any bot to do the work.

regarding what I needed the coins for, mind your own fucking business.

I didn't lose a dime, and though I don't have as much anger as you're presenting, I am prone to agree with OP.

I really think the primary reason we're not in the $7's or $8's right now is because Bitcoinica's asterisk likes to intervene and kill momentum.

Those who argue that there would have not been a rally to begin with (i.e. without leveraging) are kidding themselves.

yes, this is just plain stupid. just like when that dumbfuck guy tried to screw everyone over (and did) in bitcoinica, shorting huge amounts and causing price to go from 6.xx to 4.xx, then calling bitcoinica criminals (LOL). its just too easy for any random retard with a couple thousand to completely fuck the market up.

Just pay fucktard in Bitcoin...
its cool, I have the money Im just upset I lost $100.

Fuck all of you dipshit motherfuckers who have the power to make my assets lose over 10% overnight. I never even had a fucking chance to sell. Problem is I need the cash right now, not the coins, and am forced to sell cheap.

Trading Rule #1: Never ever invest more than you can afford to lose.
thinking rule #1: dont accuse me of things i never did. i did not "invest", and I can afford to lose 100x the money, doesnt mean Ill be happy if I lose a smaller amount.

Well, would you be just as angry if the price had jumped to $6.50?

Maybe there is a way to do it quicker for people in your situation.
no, I would have thought "why are these idiots giving me more money than I ask for?" because it feels completely unreal that the price is moving so rapidly. how the fuck is the btc economy going to work if I cant survive without having a bot doing all the moves for me?
as I said before, I dont want to profit that way, because when I do, one way or another the extra cash is coming from some other poor fellow.

at least point me to some automated software that works well with the APIs of some exchanges. as I said before I dont know how to program. maybe some kind of integration of API commands, as an addon to the bitcoin client, would be a good way to help people avoiding situations like these.

Here's my stance on the leverage debate.

Momentum is the biggest part of any price movement.  You can see this very clearly in the charts... the big trends last for months.  If we had not had leverage, we would have had a slower rise (and perhaps even from a lower bottom), but the price would have kept rising instead of running into a brick wall.  We definitely could have gotten past $7 without Bitcoinica.

do people really need tens of thousands of BTC, instantly? and when they do this, do they have to throw them right into the bids?

of course it isnt people "needing their money". its bitcoinica liquidating people most likely. I havent followed bitcoinicas daily volume (and % of that in mtgox) to confirm the selloffs were bitcoinicas bot, but I have a feeling its most likely that.

Coming into bitcoin with any sort of dependence on its fiat value is foolhardy, and can only be counter-balanced by directing all aggression toward diligently learning the market, even if you never speculated on anything, and even if you'd rather not speculate.  This is a hard fact I have learned through experience.

Agreed, it would be useful. There is probably a simple bot like this available somewhere. Also, like someone else said, you realize that selling 100 bitcoins is going to move the market right? Doing it right now would drop the value 10 cents.

you would not be raging if you just made a limit order and sent your bitcoin.  It would automatically sell when your account received BTC.

um, don't you check things out before parking your cash in them, Bitcoin is famous for it's volatility with price swings of 25 to 30% in very short time periods being the norm, if you have a need for your cash to not do this to you then perhaps you shouldn't be putting it in to Bitcoins, simple - US $ do a good job of just draining away slowly without daily 10% leaps & bounds up & down

Don't blame others for your lack of due diligence, it just compounds your failure, live & learn

sorry friend but you are assuming things that never happened. we have no idea what would happen if bitcoinica wasnt here. (btc price fluctuated wildly before bitcoinica.)

Coming into bitcoin with any sort of dependence on its fiat value is foolhardy, and can only be counter-balanced by directing all aggression toward diligently learning the market, even if you never speculated on anything, and even if you'd rather not speculate.  This is a hard fact I have learned through experience.

tldr -- nut up or shut up.
theres not much to learn when all I did was decide not to wait for 6 confirmations, and went to sleep instead. thats like saying I deserve to lose money if Im not holding it tightly with both hands, 24/7.

now fuck off trying to talk to me like if I dont know how this works. this was just simply another fuckup making people not want to do business in btc. in all likelihood, this is causing most people to not want to use btc.

the first rule of eve is dont fly what you can afford to lose, yes that is eve-online rule and if that apply on a game also apply on real life


also grow up, many of us the speculators did lose money got mad and so on but i dint see ppl insulting other ppl just because they made a bad decision  
do you mean my decision of wanting to sleep, 3am in the morning, instead of waiting for 6 confirmations, was a bad decision?

also, I dont care if other speculators dont go around insulting others for their losses. Im going to tell you assholes that you are assholes anyway.

at least point me to some automated software that works well with the APIs of some exchanges. as I said before I dont know how to program. maybe some kind of integration of API commands, as an addon to the bitcoin client, would be a good way to help people avoiding situations like these.

intersango doesnt let me place orders without coins in my acct. gox does, but you know, Ive been goxed and wont give in and use the damn exchange again. no way that french fuck in japan will make any money off me again.

that is, if I sell into the bids. I know very well not to do this, and place asks close to the bids, and wait (like a civilized person).

I've said it before, but with Bitcoin if you're smart enough it's relatively easy to "beat the market."

This isn't the stock market.  There's countless fewer variables to consider and as such it's infinitely easier to isolate market variables.  This also means that the variables you can isolate have a much more deterministic impact on the market.  Deconstructing the Bitcoin market compared to the stock market is like someone asking you to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar vs. the number of jellybeans in a swimming pool just by glancing at them.

The ONLY time I've gotten somewhat fucked was a few weeks ago when everything snowballed on Bitcoinica.  Why did I get fucked?  I wasn't even aware that the asterisk could be an issue.  Well, it's turned out to be a huge issue.  The downward movement today was completely expected and that's why I didn't lose anything.  But seriously, Bitcoinica's gotta figure out its reserve issues.

The Bitcoin market is a system.  All systems need homeostasis to stabilize, and that means balancing systemic input and output.  Bitcoinica really fucks with the input and output.

hell get his money, now I just have to make up with an extra $100 through wire or something.
as Ive said before, I have done my due diligence, I just happened to end up not selling some coins instantly, and sleeping over it. trust me, next time I wont be going to sleep when I hold coins, cause I know speculating fucks are out there to fuck me over any moment.

right. now go fuck off.

The Bitcoin market is a system.  All systems need homeostasis to stabilize, and that means balancing systemic input and output.  Bitcoinica really fucks with the input and output.

I think the problem is mtgox's orderbooks are very thin. at this moment, any speculator can go in bitcoinica with 1000btc, shortsell with 1:10 leverage, and cause the price to go to low 4.xx. The orderbooks just need to muscle up and be able to handle dumps of a couple thousand coins.


Remember this guy: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=59969.0  ? see how fucktard speculators (and this was a true fucktard, from head to toes) can fuck many people over in seconds. Hell, even if I was waiting for the confirmations during that moment, Id still get fucked in that scenario.

One last thing, if it wasn't for the speculators how long do you think you would have to wait around for someone to buy your bitcoins?

And what if no one was willing to buy them from you for exactly the same price you got them? You would sell them for a loss, or just let them sit there while people are buying and selling bitcoins for a dollar less?

I think the problem is mtgox's orderbooks are very thin. at this moment, any speculator can go in bitcoinica with 1000btc, shortsell with 1:10 leverage, and cause the price to go to low 4.xx. The orderbooks just need to muscle up and be able to handle dumps of a couple thousand coins.

Um... who do you expect to muscle up the order books if not for speculators?

I agree that there are people fucking with prices, but you can't just lump all speculators in with a couple assholes.

Also, take a chill pill.  I lost more than 5 times what you did, and you don't hear me whining.  It you weren't aware of the risks, that's your fault.  Man up.

One last thing, if it wasn't for the speculators how long do you think you would have to wait around for someone to buy your bitcoins?
as long time as it takes for someone who needs bitcoins to buy my ask. A day? but no, civilized behavior is not accepted in btc trading Tongue

And what if no one was willing to buy them from you for exactly the same price you got them? You would sell them for a loss, or just let them sit there while people are buying and selling bitcoins for a dollar less?

in all likelihood, if the majority of all trades werent for speculative purposes (bitcoinicas bot, other peoples bots, speculators etc) then no, I dont believe $1000 in btc would take so long to get sold that the price would fluctuate more than it did today.

but then again, since BTCUSD has always been affected by speculation, who knows what it would be like if the majority of trades werent for speculative purposes? lets end the discussion there. we have no idea of how it would have been.

nah Im fine now, just wanted to let some steam out.

Hope as many speculators as possible got offended. If you didnt, send me a pm and Ill try my best.

You didn't offend me for one. You are responsible for your own actions, if that was so important you should take time to move the coins earlier, not on 3am. Then you make a fool of yourself on the forums insulting everybody like it was everybody's fault.

Oh, and about the guy that you've linked that shorted 17k. Don't think that he only was responsible for the drop to 4.8. 17k short on Bitcoinica is WAY to small to do this. Believe me, I had more than that and market hardly moved.

Fuck all of you dipshit motherfuckers who have the power to make my assets lose over 10% overnight. I never even had a fucking chance to sell. Problem is I need the cash right now, not the coins, and am forced to sell cheap.

I hope you get all raped in hell for eternity.

Sorry to be all logicy while you're emotional, but if most of the participants are speculators then a speculator probably bought your coins, and if he wasn't there you'd be selling to the next lower bid (unless it was a speculator busily burning (raped actually) also).

Well, I don't think it would take very long for $1000 in coins to get sold either. What may take a long time is finding a buyer at the exact price you want to sell them for.

cant help if I received the coins 3am.

I do believe that guy was responisble for the drop to 4.8 since it happened very quickly. In all likelihood it caused many other people to get liquidated (and we know many people were long, as the asterisk was there). it also must have cause other bots to go frenzy, and we know there are many of them.
I dont trust you at all buddy, 17k in bitcoinica isnt small at all. it will cause spikes, and possibly a chain reaction of liquidations.

I sent them to the exchange but it takes approximately an hour for 6 confirmations. I had to go to sleep yesterday, you know, waiting for new blocks is not my hobby. not a programmer so I dont have any bot to do the work.

regarding what I needed the coins for, mind your own fucking business.

Man. Man.

Listen.

Nobody on this forum has the power - on their own - to swing BTC 50 cents. Or at least if they do, they aren't telling; there's someone with deep pockets who seems to enjoy pushing the price around, but we're usually just as annoyed by that guy as you probably are.

What's really happening is this: people think the price is going down and don't want to be left holding the bag. If someone you trust told you two days ago that bitcoins would be worth 10% less in a couple days, would you honestly have kept them in your wallet? Or would you have sold them while you still could?

It's the same principle. People are just trying to protect their money. And right now, there's so few people in the market that any shift, any movement of the crowd, ends up having a big footprint, instead of being the tenths-of-a-percent you see in "mature" currency fluctuations.

If you want to blame something for this volatility, it's that we're still so early in the adoption of it as a currency. It's not big enough or used enough for the price to stick. Until that gets solved, there's nothing that will keep the USD value of our coins consistent.

(In the meantime, if you want to make sure your coins don't decline in value, that's actually one of the non-speculative uses of Bitcoinica; taking out a "short" position equal to some percentage of the BTC you're holding means that any drop in value will be balanced out by the short. Might be worthwhile if you're worried about this kind of thing happening to you again.)

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

The one thing bitcoin is pretty useless for is as a store of value.  The US dollar may have lost 90% of its value in the last 50 years, but bitcoin is capable of losing 90% of its value within 6 months (June to November 2011).  The commodity suffers wild swings upwards and down.  Forum participants have watched as its value swung up to 50% within one day.  It was crazy.  The swings hurt bitcoin and hamper its adoption as anything more than a means to achieve a transaction (get rid of bitcoins as soon as you acquire them).

I hope you get all raped in hell for eternity.

That's not very nice.

theres not much to learn when all I did was decide not to wait for 6 confirmations, and went to sleep instead. thats like saying I deserve to lose money if Im not holding it tightly with both hands, 24/7.

now fuck off trying to talk to me like if I dont know how this works. this was just simply another fuckup making people not want to do business in btc. in all likelihood, this is causing most people to not want to use btc.

If this guy new "how it works" he would have shorted the amount of bitcoins he held while he slept.  That would have kept his BTC/USD exchange rate that he wanted at that moment fixed.

1.  He has 100 BTC valued at $550.
2.  He sells 100 BTC on Bitconica for $550
3.  The value of bitcoins drops to $4.50
4.  He wakes up and sees his Mtgox value of bitcoins is now $450
5.  He then goes on Bitcoinica and sees he has a profit of $100.
6.  He buys back the bitcoins on Bitcoinica and moves his $100 to Mtgox
7.  Now he has 100 Bitcoins worth $450 and $100.

$450 + $100 = $550

He would have lost no money if he knew what he was doing.  If an Iowan farmer knows how to hedge his corn then so should bitcoin accepting merchants with the ease of use of Bitcoinica.

I was trolling previously and expected to get banned Smiley
I still appreciate the serious replies.

Bitcoinica has unfortunately high spreads, and doing what you mentioned would make me lose around 5%. although it is a viable way of doing it.

however, it still doesnt solve the issue that I had to wait for 6 confirmations. I just happened to make the decision of sleeping rather than waiting for new blocks.

what I was really pissed about is how people instantly behave like a flock, in regards to btc. people are willing to sell their coins at huge losses, which is completely unreasonable. it just gives me this vibe of very inexperienced, emotional and stressed out people crapping their pants as fast as a large trade happens. and then as previously mentioned, this triggers behavior from bots (and possibly a chain reaction of liquidations in bitcoinica)

although I kept the btc, and it has gone back up to 4.8. things do seem brighter.

anyway, this thread should get binned or modified, I certainly didnt behave nice here Tongue
