  • Precious Metals-Dirt Cheap Insurance, In An Increasingly, Explosively PIMBEEB World, par Bethel, 5 June 2017

    Monday 5 June 2017 :: Silver For The People - The Blog » bitcoin :: RSS

    milesfranklin.com / by Andrew HoffmanJun 5, 2017
    With each passing day, I don’t just think, but know the world cannot, and will not, survive the collapse of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme without “thousand-year-flood”-like changes in the global political, economic, social, monetary; and likely, military landscape.
    These changes have unquestionably begun in “second” and “third world” nations with undversified economies, unstable political regimes; and of course, fiat currencies that can’t be abused – like the dollar, Euro, Yen, and Yuan – without catalyzing immediate hyperinflation.  And yet, anyone living in “first world” nations knows full well that “it” has started; particularly economically, where the average Joe and Jane have never struggled more, with less opportunity and financially resources.  But also politically, where America is rapidly descending down the Banana Republic hole; socially, given the ever-widening divide between socialist-leaning “liberals” and the majority of the population, who did not vote for Hillary Clinton.  Not to mention militarily, given America’s increasing penchant, no matter who’s the “Commander in Chief,” to bomb first and ask questions later.  And of course monetarily, given the all-time high, parabolically rising cost of living – amidst the largest ever debt edifice; which thus far, has only been held up, in Jenga-like style, by Central banks forcing interest rates to their lowest levels ever, and historic, unprecedented market manipulation.  In turn, creating “dotcom valuations in a Great Depression Era”; the largest wealth disparity since Feudal times; and burgeoning social discontent that is just starting to manifest itself in political revolution.
    For years, I have referred to the relentless “horrible headlines” signifying the rapidly accelerating rate of societal decline – in my view, principally due to abandonment of the gold standard 46 years ago.  Recently, I have “re-branded” horrible headlines as “PiMBEEB,” or Precious-Metal-Bullish, Everything-else-bearish.”  And very recently, PiMaBBEEB” – or Precious-Metal-and-Bitcoin bullish, everything-else-bearish.”  However, for the sake of this article; particularly given Precious Metals’ all-time low inflation-adjusted valuations – care of a Cartel on its last legs, as Economic Mother Natures’ immutable, undefeated armies swarm around it – we’ll stick to plain old PiMBEEB this morning.

    Despite no specific catalyst, except perhaps some flight to safety seen also seen in precious metals post-Qatar-chaos, the price of Bitcoin is surging once again back towards its record highs.

  • Bitcoin: Money or Mania?, par The Sovereign Investor, 5 June 2017

    Monday 5 June 2017 :: ValueWalk » Bitcoin :: RSS
    In its 17th-century Gouden Eeuw (Golden Age), the United Provinces of the Netherlands rode high on a wave of self-confidence. The Dutch had thrown off the yoke of Spanish control, establishing themselves as the premier trading nation of Europe … and, indeed, of the world.

    With self-confidence came folly.
    Dutch traders had recently introduced tulips from the Ottoman Empire to Holland. They rapidly became a coveted luxury item amongst the mercantile elite.
    But they were difficult to grow in Northwest Europe. Consequently, single bulbs of unusual varieties could fetch prices that made working for a living seem insane.
    During the chilly winter months when tulips would not grow, the canny Dutch invented formal contracts to buy tulips at the end of the growing season — the first futures market.
    As the winter of 1636 began, the price of these futures contracts began to increase rapidly. By February 1637, a contract for a single bulb could fetch the equivalent of 10 times the average household’s income.
    Then the bubble burst. Tens of thousands of investors lost everything — and more.
    Are we amidst such a mania once again? Those of us who watch the bitcoin market are becoming nervous…
    On May 25, a single bitcoin was worth twice as much as an ounce of gold — $2,430. It had been worth as much as a single ounce of gold only a few weeks before that.
    The Economist asked the right question about this extraordinary surge:

    Is this just a speculative mania, or is it evidence that bitcoin is taking on a more substantial role as a medium of exchange or a store of value? Put another way, is bitcoin like a tulip, gold or the dollar — or is it something else entirely?

    That’s what I want to know. You should, too.
    The Tulip Mania was a speculative hysteria in which a rising price encourages ever more buyers, no matter what the asset is. If it’s going up, went the logic, I want to go up with it.
    Such environments are ripe for scamming. In the 17th century, unwary investors bought onions sold as tulip bulbs. Today, startups issue “initial coin offerings” (ICOs), selling new, untested digital currencies … in exchange for bitcoins, of course.
    Tulips are basically useless except as an aesthetic pleasure. Bitcoins, on the other hand, can buy things, just as gold can. Like gold, bitcoin is valued both as a store of value and as a means of exchange. Is bitcoin like gold, then?
    Maybe, but the bitcoin price is far more volatile than the price of gold. The optimists say this doesn’t matter, because the gold market is worth trillions of dollars and is far more active. Global bitcoin capitalization is a mere $43 billion.
    But still: a doubling of bitcoin’s price in a month? That’s pretty frothy.

    What Is Bitcoin?


    Like my wise investment-oriented colleagues, bitcoins have me stumped. We remain uncertain about the digital currency’s future.
    Bottom line: If it’s just a form of money, it’s appreciating far too quickly. Unlike, say, the dollar and oil, there’s no real-world commodity driving this surge.
    Ditto if it’s an asset of some kind … especially since the bitcoin market is comparatively small, and a large liquidation of someone’s holdings could send it tumbling. It’s quite a risky bet, in fact, and one would expect risk pricing to be in play.
    Of course, bitcoin may be valued as a gateway to future innovation. The blockchain, the decentralized database technology underlying the e-currency, is already undergoing furious development in a variety of contexts.
    But initial technologies don’t always end up as the ultimate money-spinners. Atari, MITS and Tandy all innovated personal computers. Their products are now worthless museum pieces — but Intel and Microsoft, which got their start developing products based on those platforms, are now amongst the world’s most valuable companies.
    Besides, who holds bitcoins because the blockchain might make money for someone else someday?

    Bitcoin Do’s and Don’ts


    It’s too early to tell if bitcoin is a sustainable investment. But I can tell you a few things to do … and not to do … with the digital currency.
    Do invest a sensible portion of your portfolio in it, if you understand and can afford the risks.
    Do approach bitcoin as a buy-and-hold strategy. If it drops, don’t sell. Wait for it to come back.
    Don’t look to make a quick killing with bitcoin. It’s far too unpredictable and detached from the sort of known and understood fundamentals that underpin our market analyses here at Banyan Hill.
    Don’t make bitcoin a part of your retirement portfolio unless you can really afford the risk and potential loss.
    Dutch investors in 1637 had no antecedent with which to compare the market for tulips. Thanks to them and others like them who’ve seen bubbles come and go over the centuries, we do.
    My advice is: Treat bitcoin as a flower that may well bloom … but keep your garden diversified.

  • Coinbase To Become First Bitcoin Startup, par Pitch Book, 5 June 2017

    Monday 5 June 2017 :: ValueWalk » Bitcoin :: RSS
    Digital currency exchange startup Coinbase is set to raise somewhere around $100 million at a valuation of more than $1 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal. The report comes a few weeks after the price of bitcoin surpassed the $2,000-per-coin mark for the first time, reaching an all-time high of $2,805 on the Coinbase exchange. The price has since stabilized to about $2,400 per coin.

    Coinbase operates a digital wallet and platform where consumers can transact with digital currencies such as bitcoin and ethereum, another digital currency that’s growing in popularity. The funding is set to become the largest VC round in history for a bitcoin startup and will make Coinbase the first company of its kind to reach unicorn status, per PitchBook data. It’s also the best-funded company in the industry, with a previous total of $117 million in VC funding. Investors in the San Francisco-based company include Andreessen Horowitz, Ribbit Capital and Union Square Ventures.

  • THE NEXT THING TO UPEND EVERYTHING: BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY, par brotherjohn, 5 June 2017

    Monday 5 June 2017 :: Silver For The People - The Blog » bitcoin :: RSS
    thedailysheeple.com / 
    When it comes to blockchain technology, the core technology underpinning bitcoin, the digital currency that operates on a decentralized swarm of computers, there are many other applications as well. A real revolution may be unfolding all thanks to the technology which underpins bitcoin.
    Blockchain technology emerged with the advent of Bitcoin in 2009. It was created when a programmer, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, came up with a novel solution using a network of computers to track transactions in a way that is secure, trustworthy, fast, and transparent. The technology is used in either public networks, open to the world or private ones that could connect any type of groups. But it may also be the catalyst of a peaceful revolution which will upend society’s most sacred institutions – including government.

    Blockchain technology is a powerful decentralizing force, and as such it will transform our society at every level. By placing control and ownership back into the hands of individuals, blockchain will change the way our society works. –Futurism

  • Bitcoin is getting close to its all-time high, par Jonathan Garber, 5 June 2017

    Monday 5 June 2017 :: Business Insider: Bitcoin :: RSS
    Bitcoin

    Bitcoin is closing in on record territory.
    The cryptocurrency was trading up by 2.1% at $2,573 a coin as of 7:03 a.m. ET. The early advance has bitcoin on track for its best close ever. It would need to top $2,799 to put in its best print of all time.
    Monday's advance comes absent any real catalyst. The bid seems to be a continuation of the gains that developed late last week after China's three biggest bitcoin exchanges announced they were allowing customers to begin withdrawals for the first time since February. At the time of the ban on withdrawals, bitcoin was threatening its then-record high of $1,161 a coin before plunging by more than 10% on the news.
    Since then, however, bitcoin has seen a steady stream of good news. In early April, Japan announced bitcoin had become a legal payment method. Additionally, Russia's largest online retailer, Ulmart, began accepting bitcoin even though Russia said it wouldn't consider the use of the cryptocurrency until 2018.
    There is still one big hurdle to climb. Back in March, the US Securities and Exchange Commission rejected two bitcoin exchange-traded funds. It has since taken public comment on its decision regarding an ETF started by the Winklevoss twins, but it has not made an additional ruling.
    Bitcoin is up 172% in 2017.

  • Weekly Range Update, par Enky, 5 June 2017

    XBTUSD dailychart
    XBTUSD dailychart

    XBT / USD weekly price range at 2100$-2900$ | The VWAP is just below 1700$ and the XBTUSD cross is always above it confirming mid-term bullishness.
    I have told you many times that when a market is in a very strong position it can move between the first and second price deviation line except for rare cases where it can be between the second and the third line.
    From a couple of days back it’s above the second price deviation line and I think that the current rally will continue pushing the bitcoin towards 2900$.
    The average of the RSI oscillator is just below the overbought area and I think that bitcoin will ignore this indicator that may remain overbought for a certain period of time due to the fact that the dominant timeframe is the weekly one and as mentioned earlier I think this aspect can push bitcoin over the previous maximum of 2750$.
    In case of extreme fall, the support area is 1050-1450 USD.
