  • There are good reasons to believe bitcoin is in a bubble, par Jesse Felder, 26 June 2017

    Monday 26 June 2017 :: Business Insider: Bitcoin :: RSS
    Bitcoin
    The popularity of trading Bitcoin has now reached the point where none other than the New York Times sees fit to declare cryptocurrencies, or more specifically initial coin offerings, “The Easiest Path To Riches On The Web.” Not to be left out, CNBC this week published a brief tutorial on trading crypto with your smartphone and MarketWatch featured a teenage bitcoin millionaire who now forecasts a $1 million price target.
    These are exactly the sort of headlines and stories that characterize a speculative mania otherwise known as a “bubble.” For anyone who was around during the dotcom mania this should quickly bring back memories of all the folks who flocked to day-trading tech stocks.
    But to really understand the mania you need to look no further than the primary argument in buying crypto in the first place. Investors here claim the value comes from the limited supply. The trouble is there is an unlimited number of types of coins that can be created!
    <script async src='http://www.businessinsider.com/platform.twitter.com/widgets.js' charset="utf-8"></script>

    What makes the “initial coin offering” craze that much crazier than the day-trading mania is that these are essentially nothing more than very thinly-veiled ponzi schemes. In fact, someone saw fit to to actually create a PonziCoin (at least they’re up front about it).
    <script async src='http://www.businessinsider.com/platform.twitter.com/widgets.js' charset="utf-8"></script>

     Now some will make the argument that it can’t be a bubble when so many are calling it a bubble. These folks should have learned this lesson during the housing bubble. The fact is it’s only a bubble once everyone acknowledges it’s a bubble. And by the time they do the game is up.
    felder 1
    We’re seeing the very same thing in Bitcoin today. Crypto traders know it’s a bubble. Like every bubble (or ponzi scheme) they’re counting on a greater fool paying an even more insane price so they can realize a profit. But it looks like we may have already reached the point of maximum foolishness. Time will tell.

  • Ethereum Drops 24%, Bitcoin Loses, Too, Amid Cryptocurrency Selloff, par Paul Vigna, 26 June 2017

    Monday 26 June 2017 :: bitcoin on WSJ moneybeat :: RSS
    Cryptocurrencies led by bitcoin and ether were falling across the board on Monday as a massive run-up this spring has spurred some profit taking.
    The most prominent drop came in ether, the digital currency used on the Ethereum network that is still reeling from trading problems last week. Ether fell 24% Monday to $231, and has now lost 41% of its value from its peak June 14, according to data from Coindesk. Meanwhile, bitcoin was down 7% at $2,424. They were not alone. Thirty-eight of the top 40 digital currencies listed on the site Crypto Market Cap were all down, including other prominent coins like ripple, down 8.6%, and litecoin, down 14%.
    The selling comes after a sizable runup in the prices of these currencies. Bitcoin tripled from April 1, when it was at $1,079, through earlier this month, when it crested above $3,000. Ethereum rose more more than 4,000% earlier this year, jumping from $8 in January to $400 by June.
    The gains have been so large, even the biggest crypto-bulls have been expecting a pullback. Indeed, the digital-currency market has been shaky for about two weeks now.
    “My gut says we are headed for a selloff in the crypto sector,” venture capitalist Fred Wilson wrote in a blog post early on Monday. His Union Square Partners has been investing in the industry for several years.

    Earlier this month, bitcoin prices fell about 27% from their high around $3,000 before recovering. Last week, ethereum experienced a sharp selloff, and a “flash crash” on one major exchange, GDAX. A number of smaller cryptocurrencies, which had seen exponential gains during the run-up, are down 25% or more on Monday amid the selloff.
    “Market was a bit overbought,” said Joseph Lubin, a co-founder of Ethereum and CEO of startup Consensys. “Fear and greed cycle.  Once it starts to move, sheep pile on.”
    Much of the rally has been driven by two factors. One is a speculative fervor sparked by so-called initial coin offerings, or ICO, in which start-up offer their own token-like currencies in a process that is like a cross between crowd-funding and initial public offerings. The other is new money coming in from Japan, where government authorities implemented new rules around bitcoin that recognized the currency. Codifying the currency in that manner encouraged investors to start poking around the space. [wsj-responsive-more-in tag="Bitcoin" category="" ]
    Ethereum is similar to bitcoin in concept, but is built as a hosting platform for apps and services, rather than in support of a currency. This platform has been the infrastructure underlying the ICO wave, which has allowed startups, some of which don’t even have working products, raise tens of millions of dollars. This peaked earlier this month when a startup called Bancor, which is building a platform that would allow traders to easily exchange different cryptocurrencies, raised $150 million worth of ether. That total is expected to be topped by one of several offerings later this summer.
    Veteran cryptocurrency traders on Monday were not overly concerned, though. On the YouTube channel Whalepool, which operates much like a squawk box for traders, the conversation wasn’t about bitcoin, ethereum, or digital currencies at all. The traders were talking about stars and solar wind and whether gravity was confirmed or a theory.

  • Bitcoin is tumbling, par Jonathan Garber, 26 June 2017

    Monday 26 June 2017 :: Business Insider: Bitcoin :: RSS
    It's a rough start to the week for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency trades down 10.11% on Monday, at $2,275 a coin, a one-week low.
    The action seems to be a continuation of the selling that developed on Wednesday, when rival Ethereum flash-crashed from $296 to 10 cents before recovering its losses.
    Bitcoin is down about 16.6% since Wednesday's opening print.
    The recent weakness in bitcoin follows a run-up of more than 200% to start the year. Bitcoin's 2017 gains have been propelled by heavy buying from China and Japan.
    Recent strength has come on the heels of China's three biggest exchanges resuming withdrawals for the first time since February, and Japan naming bitcoin a legal payment method in early April. Additionally, Russia's largest online retailer began accepting bitcoin, even though Russia has said it wouldn't consider the use of the cryptocurrency until 2018.
    But the gains have created some skepticism as of late. The billionaire Mark Cuban called bitcoin a "bubble" as the cryptocurrency hit its then-all-time high on June 6.
    "I think it's in a bubble. I just don't know when or how much it corrects," Cuban tweeted. "When everyone is bragging about how easy they are making $=bubble."
    About a week later, Goldman Sachs' head of technical strategy, Sheba Jafari, said bitcoin was looking "heavy" and could drop as low as $1,915 before seeing a rally. It put in a low of $2,076 before rallying to almost $2,800.
    There remains one big unknown. In March, the US Securities and Exchange Commission rejected two bitcoin exchange-traded funds. It has since taken public comment on its decision about an ETF proposed by the Winklevoss twins, but it has not made an additional ruling.
    Bitcoin is up 136% in 2017.

  • Why On Earth Would A Merchant Drop Bitcoin For Dash?, par Guest Post, 26 June 2017

    Monday 26 June 2017 :: ValueWalk » Bitcoin :: RSS
    Removing bitcoin from an e-commerce service isn’t a headline you normally see. Nowadays the trend is for bitcoin adoption, not non-adoption. With an unprecedented market cap and a record-high price, there has been a newfound interest from mainstream investors entering bitcoin and media reporting has become more positive than ever before. It would therefore seem that bitcoin is a speculative dream with easy gains to be made and to exit from the table now would seem like a crazy business decision. Headlines have lauded the decision for Bitcart, our discount gift card platform, to remove bitcoin as “brave” and “courageous”. However, it was one of the easiest business decisions I’ve ever made and here’s why. Bitcoin as a method of payment is dead, meet Dash.
    Bitcoin Blockchain Dash Bitcoin As A Method of payment

    I believe that there are two types of people in blockchain: speculators and utilitarians. The speculators views the technology’s price and makes investments. Their interest is solely to make money. The latter views the technology’s utility and their interest is for the technology to reach its potential. As blockchain (the technology) and cryptocurrency (the economics) are cut from the same cloth, it’s realistic these two camps would exist. The breakdown is when both camps compete to steer bitcoin in the direction they see fit. In-house politics and self-interest has dominated bitcoin from the early days of Bitcart and has destroyed the utility of bitcoin as a method of payment.
    With a fee of $7 to make a payment, bitcoin no longer competes with other cryptocurrencies or even credit cards for the consumer. Bitcart provides a service for buying gift cards at a 15% discount. For example, anyone can purchase a $50 Amazon.com gift card and pay $42.50. However, for a customer to use this service with bitcoin, they would have to pay $49.50 with the fee and lose their discount.
    Notwithstanding the increased fees, bitcoin’s ongoing transactions issues delay confirmation and settlement speeds. Recently, two orders on Bitcart took almost three weeks to process, making it impossible for our service to operate efficiently. Bitcart fulfills orders within 24 hours of a transaction and our customers have begun to expect the highest competence of our company.

    Bitcoin as a Method of payment is not ideal, and why  Ethereum is not either, and Dash is the best, says CEO of Bitcart


    With 3-week payment turnarounds, bitcoin’s transaction speeds were shackling us from efficiently operating our business and this is simply not compatible with our business model.
    Bitcart began looking at alternatives to bitcoin around 12 months ago, mostly to diversify our payments and experiment with Ethereum. However, Ethereum isn’t built for commerce; it’s more like a super computer running smart contracts than an open ledger doing calculations. In early 2017, we were more thoroughly researching payments on the blockchain and we found Dash.
    Dash is the dark horse of blockchain for payments. Initially, it appeared it was just another alt-coin, but I quickly realized Dash is superior to its competitors for making payments. Its instant-send feature allows transactions to be made over the network instantly for a $0.10 fee for the consumer, around 7000% cheaper than bitcoin’s fee and many, many times faster. As a merchant, to receive payments instantly and free, without any chance of reversals or fraud, is the real-deal. While bitcoin speculators continue to dream of buying their new boat, the average person just wants a technology that works and there is currently nothing better than Dash for everyday payments.
    Once we trialled Dash for a couple of months, the decision was quickly made to remove bitcoin entirely. Since then we have received support and consistent communication from the core Dash team to help integrate merchant tools onto our platform. We are also seeing record demand. With bitcoin we had to navigate the stormy sea alone. When we hit a rock, Dash threw us a lifejacket and since we mounted a faster vessel we haven’t looked back.
