I thought the top of this most recent run up was going to be 12.6K it ended up being ~12K.

I think BTC = 6K or less ever happening is unlikely but not for some big global negative news.

Ok, I thought maybe you were the first one to take up case3 on his freeroll contest:

No copping out with hodl forever claims, anyone who thinks they can model 10 or 20 years out, yet can't call a simple pump top is lying to themselves. Lets gogogogo
Putting in the >50% retrace condition to define the end conditions is good, otherwise you can just shift the goal post indefinitely to fit your narrative. However, I don't buy the premise that this is a "summer pump", where the top that is reached this summer will result in a >50% drop before a new top is hit. Aside from that, I like this contest.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

50% retracement... it got rejected HARD at 10.5

technicals are always slightly funny because all they do is tell you what has ALREADY happened. Like the history board at a Roulette tables.

Indicators are good though... IF, you are getting in and out of the market on a consistent basis.

I've seen some stuff online where people think we're headed to 20K this year, I would take the under imo.

I would be super happy if I'm wrong though and it goes to 15K or something.
lol, no way 12k was the top, we will see higher within a week and much higher within a 1 month.

You took a huge profit, if the price tomorrow is 1m how will that effect your desire to take more profit, what if instead the price is 100? These are extremes, but they model the underlying structure of the market.
Who cares, end of the day it balances out, only an idiot doesn't take profits!

Who cares, its a fact that plenty of retards got destroyed.

I'm curious what roll bitmex plays in these huge dumps. They rich AF and could stop hunt pretty easily.
read quite a few tweets, that they trade against customers, in fact they have a dedicated team of market makers!

Of course they trade against customers and supply liquidity.

They own a multi billion $ roulette wheel where people lose gobs of money and they need to make sure theres a seat for everyone.

I really don't get it. Bitcoin is the stodgy grandpa of returns these days. Silver calls (options) are multibagging every day/week.

And yeah bitcoin doesn't look toppy to me yet. Ride the wave imo for the stodgy grandpa returns.

Anyone know how long it takes for an ACH deposit from a bank account into Coinbase Pro? The site says it should be completed by 3-5 days but I'm hoping there's some chance it's sooner.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Nice little 'healthy' pull back... time to DCA some more btc.
Thankfully I continue to add to the link and allgorand stacks.... that reminds me, I have to transfer some funds to Kraken so I can continue to stack ADA.

It appears the only things decoupled from BTC are Chain link, Ellrond and stablecoins.

Last time I transferred from a bank to Conbase it took 3 business days fwiw.

Which is ****ing brutal in crypto time lines.

Thanks, it's been a day and a half now and still not in there, indeed a brutal wait time but on the bright side it looks like I might end up getting a better price.

My Algorand is not doing badly either, +31% for the week.

Essentially they are saying it's a MASSIVE threat to their own scam and they need to ban it.

Bitcoin as a result will blow up even more, I hope they ban it, bitcoin will reach 1 million a lot sooner!

Less people will hold it, which means price goes up!!!

I canít tell if this is a level or not.
