I don't think BTC/$ will fall a lot below $400 simply because miners will stop selling coins below cost of production. Miners currently provide large percentage of the bitcoins sold on exchanges.

Of course it cannot. It will settle at a nice $10.

There is lots of volume. I think we are finding the bottom pretty soon. I'm a miner and won't sell at these levels.

Nobody, even with "free" electricity, will be able to mine coins at cost below $10 per one!

I think prices are falling because merchants are selling the coins they received from sales. Some holders are selling because think they can buy back at a lower price. This will not continue for longer. We will see when we hit $400, the historical support support level.

This is why I refuse to "use" my bitcoins..

I don't understand this logic, so they will stop selling and pay their electricity cost out of pocket? which will end up costing them more money out of pocket. No, they will sell Bitcoin at any market price to get at least something back to pay for their hardware and electricity. If anything, dropping price will prompt them to sell even more if they have hoarded some coins, so they could afford to pay their bills.

PoW mining expense is the reason the price is dropping.

Miners probably will pay for electricity from own money in hope BTC/$ will ever rise instead of selling bitcoins for pittances.

Fiat leak due to mining is the culprit.

PoS is the answer.

well just watch, you'll see just how good it can do just that.
miners are selling to cut their losses..

they have choice sell now and lose 20%, sell tomorrow and lose 30%, sell in a few months lose 95%...
what would you do?
smart people sell now while they still can
