"I fought the law and the law won"

Governments are doing everything they can to end bitcoin.

At this point in the game, it's a losing proposition for the individual. The individual is no match for all the world governments no matter how much they want.

Maybe sometime in the future, but today's bitcoin system is not going to upend the world's currency situation.

Pyre:

Since Bitcoin is very much a moving target - that continues to be up and down more than 20% on nearly a daily basis, my thought on the topic are still moving around about Bitcoin b/c of these volatility influences and my learning about the Bitcoin system as I am investing into it.

Whether I am late to the game or early or middle, remains unclear, at this time.

At this time, I agree with you that there are a lot of government entities and finanicial institutions that are working to undermine Bitcoin. There is also some behind the scenes entities working to buttress the system - and yes, quite a few of those behind the scenes entities are recently rich rather than more established or longer rich institutions, such as governments. In this regard, we need to watch what China and it people are doing regarding this investment, rather than what they are saying.

In part for the reasons above, I am disinclined to agree with your current prognosis for Bitcoin.

At this point, are you IN Bitcoin at all? Are you playing Bitcoin at all for the short term? You are generally predicting NOT likely for the long-term - though possible. Accordingly, are you IN at all for the long term, and if so, how much and how?


Regarding the ATM discussion, it seems that someone who is already set up for trading, would be in a good position to set up a Bitcoin ATM - buying and selling at set rates that are profitable. He would set up a buying and sales algorithm that would protect his assets, and since one ATM could only process so many transactions - 30-50 per hour at the most. Just like banks tend to NOT have deposit limits, they have daily withdrawal limits.

Accordingly, if the guy already has 50 bit coins, then he would automatically set his sales rates, daily limits so that the price reflect that he would never fall below a certain balance of coins. In that regard, the rates and limits would be different, if his coin quantity were to go down to 20 coins or even 5 coins. No matter what, he sets the buy and the sell rates to maintain profits and to ensure protection of principle. Through the algorithm, the ATM could also be set up to automatically refill from purchases from outside instant pay entities, such as coinbase - which also would affect the buy/sell rate and daily limit at the ATM, but be set up to ensure profits.

Locating the Bitcoin ATM in an area of already existing ATMs is a good way to piggy back off of the security infrastructure already in place.

yes i got in at $300 and $950

Mt. Gox is stuck in a trading loop. Their software is fucked up.

If you want to see the market for bitcoin, look at Bitstamp since it is the best exchange for BTC.

I won't touch bitcoin as I think in essence it's an elaborate ponzi with no determinable fair value. But watching the chart now and then is fascinating. It's exactly like a stock chart with typical patterns and formations, and supply/demand or support/resistance lines. People are probably trading in on this with algo programs. The late night of the China announcement bitcoin was already forming a bearish pattern for the hour or couple hours prior which was a funny coincidence.

Fun day in the trollbox. Baidu is no longer accepting BTC as a payment option, which is consistent with the China statement yesterday. This shouldn't much affect BTC's status in China, as they're buying it as a store of wealth, not as a currency, since their investment options are so limited.

The ban is only on financial institutions. Private persons and businesses may still use Bitcoin. Some people will go as far as say this ban is a good thing, cause they want nothing to do with the financial institutions in the first place.

But if you view the ban on financial institution as something negative, it only sent the price 20% down. And that is from the largest Bitcoin economy in the world. Surprisingly steady.

Pyre, just forget you own these bitcoin. Worst case scenario you are out 1600USD, not exactly life changing, on the other hand you might have thousands.

no i sold. gotta have a trading system with sell signals and buy signals. can always buy back again.

too much panic going on not to sell: coinbase crashes, China denounces it, etc.

Plus, I always hear you know you're at the top of a bubble when it's on every fucking news channel. case in point: yesterday someone bought a tesla and lambo with btc. and 2 months ago no one even heard of btc.

The WNBA just announced they are accepting BTC for ticket purchases - that's what is driving the latest crash - look for BTC to be @10 by Monday.
