You have the constant never ending verdicts that Bitcoin etc. is a scam, bubble, etc. and then you have some like this. Why Bitcoin's Price Will Be Valued At $150,000 By The End Of 2018, According To An Expert. 2017 may be the last year middle-class people will still be able to afford to buy and hold on to a few bitcoins.Growth in 2017 Hit 1000 PercentBitcoin started the year valued at $963 dollars each and has seen a staggering 1000 percent growth within the last 11 months. To put that into perspective, a $1000-dollar investment in Bitcoin is now worth more than $10,000. As an example, an investment in January equivalent to the price of an iPhone 7 could now buy you 10 of the iPhone X. The reason behind the staggering growth is the money that has been flowing into cryptocurrencies.Demand Is Spiking at Rapid SpeedCoinbase, the San Francisco-bed Bitcoin exchange and the largest in the U.S., has more than 12 million user accounts and is estimate...
Coinbase has had some moderate severity bugs in their sign up / verification process for at least 3 months. That really worries me...if their programmers are either too busy, or just don't realize they have these bugs, well...neither reflects well on them. Stuff like this doesn't make me feel comfortable giving them my info + money.
BTW, if you plan on investing (some say gambling) in cryptocurrency its recommended to store them on a hardware wallet (trezor, nano etc.). Hackers wont be able to access your currency as it's stored offline. " Trezor is an isolated environment for offline transaction signing and using a small display you can visually verify the transaction contents"
Does anyone know if there are some legitimate US based companies that will allow me to buy IOTA?
How many will end up in the bottom 10%?
Holders of large amounts of bitcoin are often known as whales. And they’re becoming a worry for investors. They can send prices plummeting by selling even a portion of their holdings. And those sales are more probable now that the cryptocurrency is up nearly twelvefold from the beginning of the year.About 40 percent of bitcoin is held by perhaps 1,000 users; at current prices, each may want to sell about half of his or her holdings, says Aaron Brown, former managing director and head of financial markets research at AQR Capital Management. (Brown is a contributor to the Bloomberg Prophets online column.) What’s more, the whales can coordinate their moves or preview them to a select few. Many of the large owners have known one another for years and stuck by bitcoin through the early days when it was derided, and they can potentially band together to tank or prop up the market.
Here is a primitive newbie question (shows you im just getting started with Bitcoin):Now that I own Bitcoin through Coinbase, how would I go about using my Bitcoins for retail transactions if I wanted?
For Coinbase users:I’m getting estimates of like 7-10days for my funds to clear from Chase bank. Has anyone experienced this? And why such low weekly limits? $5k-7.5k depending on what ID info I share.Seems pretty Mickey Mouse. Do you want my money or not?
Made my first Lite Coin purchase today. I plan on purchasing more as well as Ether in the coming weeks.I hate the $750 max/weekly purchase for Coinbase. Is there a way to up it?
why such low weekly limits? $5k-7.5k depending on what ID info I share.
I'd like to start a conversation on crypto-currency, particularly Bitcoin.
He is still holding onto them
Is there a way to short this thing?
anon_bba47 saysI also think there is probably 2 year left at least. The dot com bubble went mainstream, the housing bubble in 07 was mainstream but Cryptocurrency is not mainstream yet. Its on a fast track but its not there yet.
