Crypto Craziness: Bitcoin Plunges on Fork Concerns, Steem Skyrockets and Dash Surges Above $100 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

The last month has not helped bitcoin’s reputation as being a volatile currency.

A month ago bitcoin was trading near $1,000. Two weeks later it sat on the cusp of $1,300. Then, after the SEC turned down a bitcoin ETF, it sank below $1,000 briefly a week ago.

A Response to “Bitcoin Won’t Work When SHTF” / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

I’ve been commenting a lot on bitcoin lately as it has had an amazing and volatile week.

One thing that I keep noticing in the comments, though, is at least one or two people always chime in and say, “Bitcoin is screwed when SHTF”.

Bitcoin Price Returns To All-Time Highs As Cryptocurrencies Explode Higher / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

In the wake of the Winklevoss ETF being shot down by the SEC, bitcoin’s price took a major dive of nearly $300, briefly going below $1,000 last Friday.

Now, just a few days later, the price has nearly made a full recovery shooting past $1240 and surpassing, once again, the spot price of gold.

Bitcoin Gets WinkleF*ked By the Criminal SEC Organization / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Last week we heralded, “Bitcoin Is Now As Good As Gold, Actually, It’s Better”.

It was a bit tongue-in-cheek, and I knew it’d get the gold crowd whipped into a frenzy. But, the point was, for the first time ever, the value of one unit of bitcoin surpassed the value of one ounce of gold.

At the time it was around $1,250.

Bitcoin ( BTCUSD ) Warning Stage / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Bitcoin Review

Last year , Bitcoin was still considered as a fading project and many expected its price to keep dropping and break below $100. However in the recent months, the crypto-currency kept rising significantly and finally managed to make new all time high and break above $1200 last week ! That’s only $50 short of the equivalence to 1 ounce of GOLD which could have a big impact in the future .

Bitcoin Important Price Action to Be Seen / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Bitcoin is making its way into mainstream press. In an article on the CNBC website, we read:

Digital currency advocates had plenty to crow about last week when bitcoin's price overtook gold.

The event signaled a potentially important moment point for bitcoin, which is generally seen as asset that stores wealth. Bitcoin has gained more than 60 percent in price since mid-January.

Bitcoin Is Now As Good As Gold, Actually It’s Better / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

It wasn’t too long after I discovered bitcoin in 2011, trading at $3, that I became one of its biggest promoters.

I have even said on several different occasions, that if bitcoin reaches its ultimate potential it will be worth more than $1 million in today’s US dollar terms. Of course, if it did, we wouldn’t be talking about the price of bitcoin in dollars because dollars likely wouldn’t exist anymore.

Bitcoin Price Hits Record High! / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Bitcoin has just smashed through its all-time high in US dollar terms.

The US dollar was the last all-time fiat currency to crack as bitcoin has been hitting all-time highs in every other government/mafia mandated currency over the last few years.

On CoinDesk bitcoin hit an all time high of $1206.60 which is the highest it’s been since Mt. Gox in 2013, which doesn’t count, because it was likely inflating bitcoin prices before it was shut down.

Bitcoin Breaks Records and Sits at Cusp of All-Time High…Here’s Why / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

We have been the biggest proponent of bitcoin in the financial space since it was $3 in 2011.

It now sits just a few dollars from its all-time high (ex-Mt. Gox which wasn’t a legitimate high) of $1,150. And, bitcoin has remained above the $1000 price level for a record stretch of time - seven days!

Bitcoin Price Dancing around $1,000 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.

Needham & Co., an investment firm, has issued a new report on the potential success of three prospective Bitcoin ETF. In the report, we read:

Given elevated interest in the bitcoin ETFs that are going through the regulatory approval process we're revisting the subject with a deeper dive to take a look at the factors that may affect approval, differences between the three filings, market indicators of approval odds, and the effect of approval/disapproval on price. Overall, we maintain our estimates that the likelihood of approval is less than 25% but that, if it were approved, such an ETF would be extremely successful. That said, there are some market indicators that seem to suggest higher odds than our own estimates. Ultimately, while we don't see any specific reason to disapprove the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF, we think the SEC is likely to disapprove out of an abundance of caution around bitcoin itself (as opposed to something specific to the filing).

Bitcoin Making Waves In China and Japan / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

As we’ve said here many times, bitcoin is not a revolution in money and banking.  A revolution means returning to where you came from. Instead, bitcoin is an evolution in money and banking.

It changes the game so massively that the entire financial, monetary and political systems have no idea how to deal with it. For this reason, nearly every country in the world has a different “policy” when it comes to bitcoin.

Bitcoin Price Above Resistance / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: no speculative positions.
The recent drop in Bitcoin volatility is widely attributed to developments in China. On Bloomberg, we read:

Bitcoin's volatility has plunged since China banned leveraged trading and forced exchanges to charge fees.

Perhaps more meaningfully, trading volume has plunged 98 percent compared with the first days of 2017, according to data from bitcoinity.org. On Jan. 1, when bitcoin traded at $1,012.3, 4.8 million coins exchanged hands. On Wednesday, only 80,092 did. Sure, many Chinese investors, who still represent the lion's share of trading, are away from their desks because of the Lunar New Year. Still, the speed and pattern of the decline make it hard not to draw a line to the regulatory action.

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.]
