Bitcoin Pulls Back After Massive Price Increase / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

In the last month, bitcoin continued its rise, from $763 to a high of $1,153 yesterday.

Then it fell dramatically on Thursday to a low of $953 on Coindesk and has since been hovering in the $1,000 area.

All of this comes just days after the 8th anniversary of the first piece of the blockchain, known as bitcoin’s “Genesis Block” which was mined by the pseudonym known as Satoshi Nakamoto on the 3rd of January, 2009.

Bitcoin and Friends in 2017 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Greetings from Planet Krypto. We are the real deal, long-timer cryptographic-currency geeks; and today I’m gonna interview me, because I know what questions to ask. Please pardon the over-simplifications:

One: will Bitcoin continue to rise in price?
Yes, because consciousness of the deterioration of fiat currencies is growing. Three years ago, the notion that macroeconomic events would ultimately be the primary price-driver of cryptocurrency prices was almost unheard of. It’s now a no-brainer.
[And the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF? Nooo era! Feel free to ask me.]

Bitcoin Price Above Resistance / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

If you’re wondering how Bitcoin-based systems might influence the stock market, Overstock has just given you an example. In an article on CoinDesk, we read:

Online retailer Overstock.com has closed the first-ever Series A preferred funding round with shares sold on a blockchain.

Of the total $10.9m raised from existing shareholders, about $1.9m was raised via shares traded on the tØ blockchian platform developed by Overstock.com subsidiary Medici.

As Cryptocurrencies Grow More Popular, IRS Attacks Bitcoin Exchange / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Coinbase, a popular American bitcoin exchange, is under fire by the IRS – one of the most ruthless government agencies –  for being suspected of “failing to comply” with tax laws.

Because of the “war on cash,” privacy concerns and price inflation, people are flocking into cryptocurrencies such a bitcoin. But such alternatives to monopoly-fiat paper money are hated by the handful of human overseers who control the monopolized central banking system.

Privately held exchanges like Coinbase facilitate the exchange of fiat currencies and commodities for a given amount of bitcoin depending on the price being quoted.

Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin at Long-term Resistance / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Bitcoin is now getting more attention as the currency has shot up in the last couple of weeks. In an article on Bloomberg,we read:

It's happening again. Bitcoin has locked step with gold and taken to the skies as uncertainty about the U.S. election increases volatility in global markets. It is, in short, acting as a haven.

(…)

Aside from facing obsolescence and the threat of competing with actual currencies, the volatility of Bitcoin has to be off-putting for serious investors. During any given period, the digital currency swings three to five times more violently than gold, hardly the behavior expected from a haven asset.

Bitcoin Trading Alert: Starting Point of Decline Not Far? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

The treatment of Bitcoin by asset management firms is slowly changing. The digital currency is by no means as popular as traditional assets, however, investment companies sometimes approach Bitcoin as a new asset class, one that might be on its way to maturity. Money Morning cites a report on Bitcoin by Needham & Co.:

Central Bank Digital Currencies: A Revolution in Banking? / Stock-Markets / Bitcoin

By: Ellen_Brown

Several central banks, including the Bank of England, the People’s Bank of China, the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve, are exploring the concept of issuing their own digital currencies, using the blockchain technology developed for Bitcoin. Skeptical commentators suspect that their primary goal is to eliminate cash, setting us up for negative interest rates (we pay the bank to hold our deposits rather than the reverse).

A Common Sense Regulatory Framework for Digital Currency / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

John Dunham writes: The phrase, horror vacui, or nature abhors a vacuum, was attributed to Aristotle, who suggested that nature contains no vacuums because the denser surrounding material would immediately fill any void.  This physical postulate is often applied to the idea of government regulation.  If something is not regulated (or in many cases highly regulated) then it is indisputable that some government will step into the void.  In the case of digital currency and/or cryptocurrency, the concept of horror vacui is in full swing as governments from the European Union to the United States to China are all proposing broad regulations on the development and operation of digital currency markets.  This is on top of local court rulings, such as that made by a Miami-Dade Florida circuit court judge who ruled that Bitcoin was not a currency.

Bitcoin Price Back Down / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

 

The current banking system is global, at least in theory, but it definitely seems that the term “global” does not actually apply to all parts of the payments space the way we would like it to. International wire transfers still tend to be slow and costly. It is perhaps irritating that sending an email takes seconds but sending $5 abroad is slow, expensive or altogether impossible. This is why companies like Western Union still charge hefty fees for overseas transfers. As it turns out, Bitcoin and other digital currencies might offer a way forward for making the remittance industry more accessible. On Quartz, we read:

Bitcoin Is Just a Bit Player / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: MoneyMetals

Over the last few years, so-called "crypto-currencies" – digital equivalents of a monetary exchange unit, have been all the rage. The most well-known in the category, Bitcoin, has had quite a run.

Starting out as a "virtual penny stock" it rose in 2014 to the elevated height of $1,150, before crashing back to earth. This "electronic currency" is created and stored in a computerized "wallet." Purchases and sales are made via a "blockchain" which keeps a memory of every transaction conducted. Private keys (supposedly) provide assurance that a Bitcoin holder's account is safe.

Bitcoin after Recent Decline / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: short speculative positions; stop-loss at $657; initial target at $527.

The customers of the recently hacked Bitfinex exchange will most likely share the losses resulting from the theft, we read on the Wall Street Journal website:

Bitfinex, the digital-currency exchange that lost $65 million to hackers last week, plans to spread the losses among all its users, including those not directly affected by the hack.

The Hong Kong-based digital-currency exchange said in a statement Sunday that the losses from the theft would be shared, or “generalized across all accounts and assets” of its clients, with each taking a loss of around 36%.
