Bitcoin $650 Still in Play / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

A recent development in the Ethereum ecosystem might turn out to be important for other digital assets, Bitcoin included. On CoinDesk, we read:

The ethereum ecosystem is returning to normalcy following a high-profile hack last month that resulted in nearly $60m worth of investor funds ending up under the control of an unknown group or individual.

The 'theft', as some would label it, was eventually reversed through what's known as a hard fork, a change in the code, 'approved' by an informal community vote, that effectively moved the disputed funds to a new account where investors could withdraw their original investments.

Large Investors Become Major Bitcoin Buyers / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The world has woken up to the fact that the Central Banks are a curse, rather than a boom to the global economies, and their time left is slowly coming to an end because of new technologies and currencies I talked about last week.

People are starting to park their money in digital currencies, like Bitcoin, rather than parking them in fiat currencies. This is primarily due to the Negative Interest Rate Policy as well as Zero Interest Rate Policy of the Central Banks, which explains the sharp rise in the price of Bitcoin, this year as seen in the chart below.

Bitcoin in Asymmetric Position / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Paul_Rejczak

In short: no speculative positions.

The recent halving of Bitcoin rewards has proved to be a sort of no-volatility event. In an article on CoinDesk, we read:

One of the primary expectations leading up to halving was that the price would drop due to an expected rumor-and-event cycle, whereby traders would accumulate the asset, riding the excitement up until the actual halving took place, at which point they would exit positions.

Keep an Eye on ‘Bitcoin’ as the Next ‘Financial Crisis’ Starts! / Stock-Markets / Bitcoin

By: Chris_Vermeulen

‘Bitcoin’ is on a tear away rally. Its’ performance, over the last year, has been outstanding and it has outperformed most ‘asset classes’, by a wide margin. It is probably the only asset class which beats out both gold and silver, in 2016. Why is it shooting into outer space?

Bitcoin Price Walking Thin Line / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

There has been an important change in the way the Bitcoin network operates. Namely, mining rewards have been cut in half. This is not an unforeseen change, since there is a known halving schedule. On BBC News, we read:

The financial rewards for being involved with the Bitcoin virtual currency have been halved.

Before 9 July, a regular reward of 25 bitcoins was handed out to those who were first to verify which coins had been spent.

Correction in Bitcoin Price? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

The road to a Bitcoin ETF has proved to be pretty challenging for the Winklevoss twins. First mentioned in 2013, the ETF has yet to be approved by the SEC, more than 2 years after the initial filing. In the recent days, the filing was amended to change the exchange the ETF would be traded on. On the Forbes website, we read:

In their three-year-long quest to offer a Bitcoin ETF, twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss made several amendments to their regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Wednesday.

After initially deciding to list the proposed Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust (which would go by the ticker symbol COIN) on Nasdaq, they’ve switched to BATS Global Markets, which has become a popular choice for newly launched ETFs and is known for a having technologically advanced exchange.

Bitcoin Price Close to $700 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Bitcoin is on the move up. New “reasons” are being dug up for the appreciation. In a Bloomberg article, we read:

Bitcoin surged to a two-year high amid expectations supply of the digital currency will shrink next month.

The cryptocurrency rallied to $696.5 on Monday in Hong Kong, the highest since February 2014, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It was trading at $689.23 as of 3:50 p.m. in Hong Kong, up 19 percent from Friday.

Bitcoin after Nonfarm Payroll Data / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Bitcoin is on the move up and this is the most prominently featured piece of news as far as the digital currency is concerned. On CoinDesk, we read:

Petar Zivkovski, director of operations at bitcoin trading platform Whaleclub, told CoinDesk that in his view, this correlation with the yuan is being used to sell headlines, and that it may not paint a portrait of what is happening on the ground.

"The theory that the Chinese are buying bitcoin due to yuan devaluation is a nice story to tell, but is in our view incomplete,” he told CoinDesk, adding:

Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Price Stays below $450 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: short speculative positions, target at $153, stop-loss at $515.

Bitcoin has enjoyed a spell of decreased volatility which has led some commentators to draw parallels between the currency and other asset classes, gold being an example. On the Wall Street Journal website, we read:

In April, volatility in bitcoin’s price fell below that of gold for 28 consecutive days, the longest period in its history. Bitcoin volatility also briefly dropped below that of another flight-to-safety trade, the Japanese yen, according to data from FactSet and CoinDesk.

Banks are looking into the possibility to come up with their own versions of Blockchain. At the same time, none of these emerging solutions are as tested in real life as Bitcoin itself. So, the Bitcoin network has its advantages, even if you are not a Bitcoin believer. On the Bitcoin Magazine website, we read:

A Swiss town is now embracing Bitcoin in an experimental move, we read on the Engadged website:

Most experiments in paying with digital currencies have come from private companies, but the Swiss town of Zug is trying something different. As of July 1st, the community is launching a trial that will let you pay for public services using Bitcoin -- as long as you're shelling out the equivalent of 200 francs ($206 US) or less, you can skip old-fashioned money. The trial will run through the rest of 2016, though whether or not it lives beyond that depends on the town council's findings.

The Bitcoin Drama Continues: Craig Wright Disappears and Andresen Says He Was Bamboozled / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Yesterday we wrote about our doubts on Craig Wright and who he is.  Less than 24 hours later he has disappeared.

You can say one thing about bitcoin: it's never boring!  Tracking developments surrounding it is more entertaining than a spy novel.

But, whatever Craig Wright may have had in mind doing with Gavin Andresen seems to have collapsed. Andresen had solidly endorsed Wright’s claim about being Satoshi Nakamoto only yesterday and seemed delighted that his mentor had decided to “go public.”
