More Clarity for the Short Term for Bitcoin Price / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin has been on the move down from $10,000. The recent couple of days, however, saw the decline decelerate. Does this have any bullish indications for the currency at the moment. We actually do have some strong ideas on this question and on the possibility that we might have already seen a local extreme. We would like to share them in this alert along with thoughts on our already profitable hypothetical positions.

It’s really hard to put a reasonable number down as far as Bitcoin’s value is concerned. This doesn’t stop people from taking a crack at it. On the Forbes website, we read:

Are You Still Fearful of Cryptos? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Avi_Gilburt

Ryan Wilday: Since leaving my job as a corporate design manager to analyze and trade cryptos (among other things), I’ve gained new attention from old colleagues. In circles of my former profession, I’m the guy that retired to trade for a living. While my departure from corporate life was something I planned for many years, cryptos certainly gave those plans a shot in the arm.

Regardless of how it came about, my early ‘retirement’ carries some lore; ‘He must have made millions on Bitcoin’ I’m sure some say.

Bitcoin Beyond the Bubble - Video / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

You know what’s almost as rewarding as being right about Bitcoin? The satisfaction of saying “I told you so” to all the powerful naysayers who scoffed at crypto years before it became today’s most profitable trend.

And that’s what the new documentary “Bitcoin: Beyond the Bubble” does so well, capturing the establishment freakout we in the crypto world have painstakingly endured for so many years.

IS BITCOIN ANONYMOUS? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Like most people new to Bitcoin, you’re probably wondering whether it is anonymous.  The answer is NO. While many individuals see it as an anonymous cryptocurrency or payment platform, Bitcoin, like many other cryptos is private but pseudo-anonymous.

While it doesn’t need users to provide their details, all the transactions they’ve made or will make are public domains, and everyone in the blockchain will be able to see them.  To secure its transactions Bitcoin uses a public key, which is a long string of letters and numbers called a BTC address. These public keys are not tied to any identifiable details and information; however, in theory, they can be used to gather information about an individual over time.

Bitcoin Tide Might Have Turned / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin stabilized, went  up, went down and now is going up again. The ride has been wild and the opinions on the outlook in the market have been shifting. We hold a steady course and strive to filter out all the noise to give you the most relevant information. An there’s rarely a more important time than now for that. The tide might have turned and we’re on the lookout for a confirmation of the trigger. Such a confirmation could increase the profits on our hypothetical position.

The South Korean government moved to raid the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the country. On Reuters, we read:

South Korean prosecutors raided the country’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange, Upbit, on Thursday and Friday on suspicion of fraud, Yonhap news agency reported.

The agency did not give details. Neither Upbit nor the financial investigation team of the Seoul Southern District public prosecutors’ office was immediately available for comment..

Bitcoin Simmering Slowly... / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The situation in the market has become one where Bitcoin is trading on relatively low volume without major moves. But the currency is in a very important place. Actually, Bitcoin is simmering slowly. Will it boil? Will this increase the profits on our hypothetical positions?

The Bitcoin market has its undeniable quirks. From the wild volatility of the currency, to a community of developers supporting it, to the fact that Bitcoin can be put in vaults. Putting Bitcoin in “cold vaults” usually means transferring the currency to a storage device without any access to the Internet or any outside networks. But sometimes Bitcoin is put in actual vaults. In an article on Bloomberg, we read:

Behind the guards, the blast doors and down corridors of reinforced concrete, sit the encrypted computer servers -- connected to nothing -- that hold keys to a vast digital fortune.

Amazon Patents Orwellian Tech Allowing Police To Track Bitcoin Transactions / Politics / Bitcoin

Corporatist retail giant Amazon.com has received approval from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a technology allowing police to track Bitcoin transactions.

As reported by CNBC, the patent--filed by Amazon Technologies--will "correlate different data streams and sell the combined feed as a subscription to people who want to track that data."

Bitcoin is Bitcoin / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Mike Jarmuz writes: Someone once tried to sell me a used Rolex for $500 when the fair market value of this “Rolex” would be around $4,500.  The watch said Rolex, it definitely looked like a Rolex and for someone who never had worn a Rolex before….. I guess it also felt like a Rolex.  But… this watch was definitely NOT a Rolex and I thankfully did not make this purchase.  This is pretty much the analogy for anyone buying Bitcoin Cash today and thinking it’s Bitcoin.  It looks like Bitcoin, it may feel like Bitcoin and somehow there are people out there who refer to it as “the real Bitcoin.”  I mean after all, Bitcoin.com has multiple PSA references and warnings about it. Unfortunately, they aren’t warning you (to your benefit) at all.  They are one of the biggest proponents in the spreading of misinformation.  The whole damn website is lousy with inaccurate and downright factually incorrect information.  But why?  Why would Bitcoin.com along with a handful of other “bad actors” try and doup the public?

Has Bitcoin Been Shot Down? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Another week, another outrageous prediction for the price of Bitcoin. We just saw a forecast at more than 75 times the current value of the currency. The figure is $700,000. Is Bitcoin really about to take off to the Moon or has it been shot down?

The honest answer is that nobody can say this with certainty. It’s probably not the answer you expected but we are more interested in giving you accurate information than false enthusiasm. Before we give you our view on the matter, let’s get to know the $700,000 claim. In an article on the Fortune website, we read:

John Pfeffer, a partner at his London-based family office Pfeffer Capital, is not only betting on Bitcoin, but giving it a bold price target of $700,000—about 75 times the current Bitcoin price of nearly $9,500.

You can’t put down a virtual poker card these days without hearing news about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The premise of transparency, trusted record keeping and identity verification at the heart of distributed ledgers carries the power to transform every industry. Perhaps there’s no better suit for what blockchain can do than in the online gambling business.

What’s Bitcoin Really Worth? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

What’s Bitcoin really worth? This question might really drive you mad if you think hard enough about it. $0? $10? Maybe $1,000,000 for one coin? The range of the numbers can make your head spin but it is the explanation behind the number that matters. For the most part, investors don’t have a good reason why Bitcoin is worth this or that, apart from claims that “it will take over the world” and so on. This hasn’t stopped people from trying, though. Is it even important for short-term traders? Can it boost profits on our hypothetical positions?

Bitcoin Hater George Soros Finally Admits He Wants In On Crypto / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

America’s favorite power broker, the evil bloated Ringwraith himself, George Soros, is now poised to invest in cryptocurrency, despite trashing Bitcoin just a few months ago.

In addition to calling Bitcoin a “bubble”, Soros ironically stated that digital currencies are a tool for dictators:

As long as you have dictatorships on the rise, you will have a different ending, because the rulers in those countries will turn to Bitcoin to build a nest egg abroad.

With a value of $137 billion, Bitcoin remains the largest cryptocurrency on the market.  When it performs well, the others follow suit and when it drops so do they.  The road has been a rough one for the currency in recent times reaching ultimate highs and all-time lows.  But, will Bitcoin ever recover?

Bitcoin Not Quite Worthless, Potentially Profitable / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Is Bitcoin worthless? Depreciation brings such questions as it has in the past. Bitcoin traders might be worried by such statements. But should they be anxious? In the whirlwind of opinions, we can find a theme which might allow profits on our hypothetical positions to grow even further.

The fact that Bitcoin is going down prompts all sort of analyses to come out. No big surprise that some of them are pretty bearish. In a piece on CNBC, we read:

Bitcoin is likely to fare worse than other assets in the coming months because it has no fundamental worth, an investment research firm said in a note Thursday.

London-based Capital Economics explained that the cryptocurrency has been quite closely correlated to the S&P 500 since the price started to fall from its record high at the end of last year.

Staying Away from the Bitcoin Crypto Bubble / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Harry_Dent

The crypto ship is sailing in rough seas at the moment. My advice? Stay away for now. Preserve your capital for after the major crash, and then pick winners from the bones.

The bitcoin and cryptocurrency trends seem to be following the path the internet took back in the very late 1990s. That bubble came at the end of the tech bubble, and expanded by more than 8 times between late 1998 and early 2000. Then it crashed 93%.

One Change the Bitcoin Posse Is Unlikely to See / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

“Bitcoin will reach the moon,” they said. “$20,000 is only the beginning,” they pressed. The harsh reality of the recent move is that appreciation has been nowhere in sight. Harsh, that is, if you haven’t been positioned properly. Are Bitcoin traders bound to be left with their teeth clenched, watching Bitcoin fluctuate? No. There’s a possibility for some to grow the profits they already have on specific positions and for others to jump in during the next part of the move.

Bitcoin, Verge, Ethereum and Ripple - The Crypto Market Conundrum / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Avi_Gilburt

By Ryan Wilday : In my last article I stated that we had the potential for a lasting bottom in the crypto market, starting with a low in most coins on February 6th. However, in that article I also gave the conditions for that bottom to fail.

Those conditions, unfortunately, became reality. We have since seen both Ether and Verge, highlighted in that article, slide to new lows below the February 6th low. Bitcoin and Ripple did not fall below their February 6th levels, but did confirm the unlikelihood of that low marking the beginning of an impulsive wave.
