It's definitely a big deal. Unprecedented and historic. I have no idea what the eventual price effect will be, but anything is possible here.

This is the first regulated exchange right?
At least it is the first one in the US. Also the news is still fresh. I think we will see a lot of price movement once people get their money into the new exchange (will take a few more days).

Which ones?

Nothing with anywhere near the reach, resources, and transparency of Coinbase.

Where's my lap dog tvbcof, btw, with all his vomit?

Maybe turning a few tricks to buy some bitcoins?

If I wanted more BTC, I'd simply have put away a fraction of the money I made selling at the 2013/2014 juncture.  I spent it all (or have it earmarked) for property development projects.  Don't worry...I've got a decent amount of powder of the BTC variety dry.

I more or less got the posting bug out of my system over the last few weeks.  The only interesting thing going on recently is the sidechains possibility which is probably the last hope to save Bitcoin as something worth saving.  Also, gearing up for the 'gavincoin' fork war is something I should be focusing my efforts on, but it's such a hassle and a lot of work that I've been remiss...easier to post babble on trolltalk.

I tend not to be 'bullish' or 'bearish'.  Price spikes and drops are just things that happen.  Obviously they are emotionally exciting, but I expect both of them to continue so none of them are big surprises.  I just call things as I see them and tell people what I am doing.  Told people I was buying in the single digits.  Told people I was selling in the four digits.  Told people a few days ago that I'd probably be buying right now if I had no BTC and some money to gamble with.  Maybe that's what turned the market around.  Who knows?  I mean anyone who is watching will probably listen to my thoughts more than the perma-bull bozos who look indistinguishable from pump-n-dump scammers.

more BS vomit from your lips.

nope, your posting frequency, negativity pitch, and SC pump correlated directly with the price slump down into the capitulatory low of 152.  typical for an emotional and confused momentum follower of Bitcoin such as yourself.  just read the contradictions in your post.  another attempt by you to cover all the bases so that when a counter trend move occurs, you can say you called it.

furthermore, such a high opinion of yourself:

Quote from: tvbcof
Maybe that's what turned the market around.

a bunch of guys just a few posts above were making fun of themselves about how their actions caused the rally.  of course, they were just joking.  you, otoh, actually believe your deluded remarks actually MAY HAVE moved the market.  lol.

been meaning to put this chart up to demonstrate that a blue chip stock like UPS moves with even more volatility and rapidity than Bitcoin.  in fact, it's worse as the move occurs during after hours when most investors have no access to markets.  a pessimist might actually think the system was designed this way:

It is easy to be critical of the reluctance shown by EU policy makers when it comes to debt restructuring, but it needs to be remembered that the United States is the great engine of financial instability in the global financial markets.

This is why Eternal Vigilance is needed. Just think of all the systems that they have corrupted already, it's improbable that Bitcoin can be "saved" but as long as it does function, it is waay better than all the current alternatives.
