I created this account "riiiising" because all my others were being banned for warning others against the incoming drop in price from $600, $500, $400, etc.

...

The only way I was able to stick around was by pretending to be an over the top caricature of a bull, at which point I then was able to get my message across again. I have been warning others about this drop for a very long time.


so "riiiiising" == "falllling"

Nice try. I respect fallllling and we have worked together in the past on various bitcoin related projects. he's a very smart individual and confided in me that he will not be returning after all the dastardly abuse he received by you people.

oh well, should have listened to him, he warned you since $600 that this would happen and you banned him!

I think mostly alts trade with bitcoin but with higher beta due to thinner market / less liquidity. If BTC goes up they'll probably all go up. *shrugs* I dunno. I bought a few of them way back when it seemed like a good idea. Hold them because its not worth selling them.

That is an interesting chart! I think it it will serve people well to remember that outsized moves in bitcoin happen seem to happen in both directions. Which was the point of the post.

It's easy to say when we are at 1200 that we'll go back to 200 before we go back up, and feel confident that the correction to 200 is natural and the subsequent rise is inevitable because how else will it capture x% of global remittance (which is the 'success' endgame scenario) and usurp broken currencies. To do this, it will have to grow exponentially in terms of market cap (and hence price).

When we are actually at 200 its much harder to maintain that belief!

1. One relatively major currency had dropped more than 50% in a few months (rub), resulting in "evaporation" in ~$1 tril in GDP.
2. Another major currency changed hands 20% higher as a result of one (albeit major) announcement. I am talking about CHF/EUR of course.
major brokers STOPPED trading the pair (maybe temporarily).
http://forexmagnates.com/eurchf-crash-leads-brokers-to-halt-trading-in-chf-pairs/
3. A major commodity (oil) lost 60% of its value in a few months without any recession being apparent.

What does it tell you? To me it tells that a significant % of value of the above is determined by speculation and is NOT an intrinsic property.
I fail to see how bitcoin is any different. At least we know the emission rate until 2140.

I agree entirely. That explains why a move from 12 to 266 to 60 to 1200 to 160 is possible. Its mostly speculation. There does however seem to be a small component of underlying value based on utility.

The thing with exchange rates is you are pricing one money in a another money, which is as you say a largely speculative exercise.

Goods are priced in money, and so the converse is true. Money can be priced in goods.

If you do this for dollars thats how you understand the underlying value of the dollar - what you can 'get' with it. not how many rules, or swiss francs or BTC someone will give you for it, thats just arbitrage and speculation.

So it goes that you can do this for bitcoin. BTC can be priced in goods. At the moment a lot of people that accept BTC convert straight back to the dollar. The next step is that people start to transact in bitcoin using the dollar as a proxy. The more places that do this, and the more people use it, the more people will start to realise they don't have to convert back to the dollar - after all doing so is costing them exchange fees. So they start keeping a  small BTC float. Then maybe people start to work entirely in BTC only converting when they have to buy something from someone who doesn't yet accept BTC, and raising there eyebrows at the same time! Then BTC is money.

The world won't change overnight, BTC going to $XXX isn't the 'success', all the people focused on price miss the point. Thats the point. Now, all of that stuff might not happen, but equally likely it could. For that reason I hold, not because my BTC will be worth $XXX in future but because I'll be able to use those BTC as money.

Because I don't know for sure though, it would be foolish of me to put everything I have into BTC and wait. So I don't I allocate assets according to risk I perceive. If I become over invested in dollar terms then maybe I rebalance. If I can afford to buy when prices are low, I rebalance.

Very good points indeed. I wonder if OIL trolls scream OIL IS DEAD on forums as much as our trolls scream here Smiley


I do see a couple of differences thou
1. Its way too skinny and small and new (lower barrier to entry for manipulation)
2. Its not properly regulated yet (there's no oversight) this makes it a fav playing ground for some scum

The market is hard to predict.

Real analysis is very hard, because of the tendency to see in the data what you hope for or expect, rather than what is there.  The same difficulty applies to all of life, of course; financial analysis is only a distillation of it.

Some people do analysis.  This involves not only learning and/or making up a bunch of plausible-seeming rules, but actually applying those rules to at least a dozen past situations to see how valid they are and eliminating rules which aren't, before attempting to apply those which are to the current situation to see what they predict.  But there is always guesswork in determining which past situations are sufficiently "like" the present situation to be good tests for your rules.  And this guesswork is always sabotaged by your own subconscious because you know how those past situations turned out. Your mind will inevitably try its best to justify a rule you like as applied to the current situation by picking as "tests" past situations which justify it. 

Some people try to find out everything they can, form a gut instinct, and, if they believe it's undervalued, they buy it and hold it until it seems overvalued. 

Some people make up a bunch of plausible-sounding rules, skip the validity checks, draw a lot of lines on graphs, and then make a somewhat-educated wild-assed guess based on where the lines fall. 

Some take stock of what they know and suppose that others don't, and conclude that they should value something higher or lower than others because of that knowledge.   For example, someone who knew that Satoshi's coins can never be spent, could conclude from the knowledge that because he knows this and others don't, he should value Bitcoin higher than they do as having that much less risk.

In a speculative market the crowd is wrong.  A successful speculator is not making money from the issue itself; he is making money from the other traders.  He makes money by believing the opposite of what those around him or her believe.  When the market is rocketing upwards at awe-inspiring highs and everybody is yelling "TO DA MOON, BABY!!" the speculator who makes money is very carefully selling to them.  When the market is plumbing new depths and everyone despairs, the speculator who makes money is quietly, steadily, buying in at the lows. 

One of the easiest strategies for human beings is listening to and believing the wisdom of others.  It's a human default; we are social animals, and living in a shared reality, shared wisdom is usually applicable.  Moreover, shared belief makes for cultural compatibility and trust, and cultural compatibility and trust lead to friendship. 

Most of these, believe it or not, are fairly valid strategies, though the markets in which they work best vary.  The last however will never earn more than market rates, and, contrasted to the one above it, is a prescription for losing everything you have in any market whose movements are driven mainly by speculation.

Now, simply ask yourself;  What kind of a market do we have here?  To what degree is it fundamentals-driven?  To what degree is it speculative?  Is it subject to real analysis, or is it too novel for there to be applicable precedent?  Do you feel that you know enough for your 'gut instinct' to be valid?  Do you know anything that others do not know?  Are there *specific* things  you think the crowd is wrong about?  Has your opinion about the *value* of the asset remained stable through its last several movements of *price* and if so which is now higher? Are you making decisions on the basis of believing others?

What kind of strategy works well or poorly in the kind of market you think we have?  Your course of action should be one you figure out yourself, based on that strategy.

Heh.  Assume for the moment that I believe the market is entirely speculation driven.  If it is, then I profit when the crowd is wrong and I am right.  Under those circumstances I would be motivated to say that the market is fundamentals-driven and that people should be investing according to their perceived value of bitcoin. 

Now, assume for the moment that I believe the market is fundamentals-driven.  If it is, then everyone profits (or not) regardless of the activities of speculators, and there is no motive to mislead.

My point is that if I were an entirely rational trader, in either case I would tell you that you should invest according to whatever actual value you perceive for bitcoin.

But I am not entirely rational.  At this time the market is mainly driven by speculation, so I could profit in the short run by misleading people if I committed the time and effort to managing a speculative portfolio.  However, I'm investing according to fundamentals and don't really give a damn about the short-term speculators opportunities to profit because making an edge via  speculation is a full time goddamn job and I have a life to live.  Long-term investments can be made in a speculative market, whenever the speculators crash the market below the long-term value.

Therefore, I *am* managing my portfolio according to the value I perceive for Bitcoin, and I *do* believe that right now it is undervalued.

Okay, more specific answer as requested.

Right now I think Bitcoin is undervalued by about ten to one, meaning I think the present value of a coin is around $2000, or, in gambling parlance, its "edge" is  about 9/10.   But because the risk is very high, I would still advise against putting over $4K of your own money into it unless you have more than $1M to invest.

The odds of success are tremendously more important in a longshot proposition than the value it would have if that success comes to pass.   Bitcoin is very nearly a pure example of this.

The downside is such a complete loss and the space between upside and downside so unlikely relative to either, and the interest that could be otherwise earned on the invested money so low relative to the upside in the time it will take, that this is very nearly a pure Kelly Bet.  Meaning, you can think of this in about the same terms as a bet you'd make and collect in the same hour at the racetrack and not go too far wrong.

The Kelly rule is, bet your bank, times the edge, divided by the odds.

The upside potential is high, but still IMO less than 5% percent likely (by which I do not mean CLOSE to 5%, I mean LESS THAN 5%).  Therefore dividing by the odds means no matter what, even if it were paying out at billions-to-one, Bitcoin should be less than 5% of your portfolio.

How much less?  Well, that's the edge.  "Edge" is expected return divided by investment - if you believe something would pay off at 10-to-1, and it's fifty-percent likely, your edge is 4/5 because, on average, 4/5 of the chips you have after you bet are chips you didn't have before the bet.  So you'd bet your bank, times 4/5, divided by 10, or 8% of your money on it.

If you think Bitcoin's odds are 10-to-1 (ie, it is 10% likely to succeed) and its edge is, say,  99%  (meaning that after a bet, on average, 99% of your coins would be winnings, which would require a 1000-to-1 payout at those odds), then you'd bet 99% of 10% of your portfolio, or 9.9%.

If you think Bitcoin's odds are 20-to-1 (ie, it is 5% likely to succeed) and its edge is 99% (meaning at 5% it would have to pay out 2000-to-1) then you'd bet 99% of 5% of your portfolio, or 4.98% of your money.

So plug in your own numbers and do your own math.

For bonus points, since I already told you what I think the edge is and what percent of someone's bank they ought to put on it, you can calculate what I think the odds and upside potential are.

Those guys who were saying in the runup that people should mortgage their houses and borrow money to invest in bitcoin?  Those guys are crazy.

edit: maybe i'm wrong though, http://www.globalrichlist.com list puts me in the top 1% hehe (by income I should add! wealth, not so much)

Danish welfare puts one in the top 15% by income. This is below the official local poverty line. Seems legit.

I created this account "riiiising" because all my others were being banned for warning others against the incoming drop in price from $600, $500, $400, etc.

...

The only way I was able to stick around was by pretending to be an over the top caricature of a bull, at which point I then was able to get my message across again. I have been warning others about this drop for a very long time.


so "riiiiising" == "falllling"

I called it:

And for context on how he plays both sides and runs his sockpuppets:

I had a post deleted where I called rising a troll. Ban Blitz.
