DJIA -1315 From Yesterday’s High
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”
Today’s market was down from the start with PPI numbers and Jay Powell talking about the economy, negative rates, a slower than Trump promises recovery and just in general spooking anyone within the sound of his voice. The futures had been higher, but the rally in afterhours last night had pushed up the “fair value” to the point of a negative open. It only got worse throughout the day as the A/D and volume piled up on the downside finishing 8:1 down on the NYSE and 4:1 on the NAZ, but also on the NY the volume was a solid 7:1 down too. On the DJIA we had only one stock up, MRK, and only $ .74. The losers were spread around with UHN the biggest loser -70, GS -37, MMM -36 AND AXP -35 DPs. Financials, Energy, and Industrials were the weakest with Consumer staples and Utilities the “least weak.”
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/vm3CUCipzT0
SECTORS: The news from UBER / GRUB was that there would be no deal at 2.1 shares of UBER for GRUB, but it was disclosed that UBER was considering a ratio of just 1.9:1, so UBER moved up $ .62 while GRUB was lower by $2.25 (3.73%). The good news was that UBER said there were $300 million in cost efficiencies in the deal for them. Not much of a dent in the $2.9 Billion they lost this quarter, but I guess you have to start somewhere.
Cisco reported a beat after the close and the stock, down from a high yesterday of $44.30 had closed $41.95 - $1.27 rallied on the news to $44.45 but closed $42.94 +.99.
ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.
FOOD SUPPLY: was MIXED with TSN -1.58, BGS +1.50, FLO +1.29, CAG +.18, MDLZ -.84, KHC -.16, CALM -.55, JJSF -.65, SAFM -.94, LANC +.63, GO -.61, UNFI +7.22 (46.55%) on preliminary reporting of their Q3 sales and several upgrades lead the group, and BYND +1.07.

OIL, $26.68 -.65. Oil was another short-range day that gave no hint of direction to come as we finished down a bit. The contract was rolled forward so the price is slightly higher but still unable to make any headway against overhead supply. All the stocks on my list were lower with XLE $35.73 -1.70 (4.54%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,716.40 +9.60. After the recent gains, Gold broke below $1,700 yesterday but failed to follow-thru to the downside and closed higher. The 5 and 20-day MAs look like they may cross to the upside, But it was still unable to break the downtrend line at $1,726. We are long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,270 +400. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and we added 350 shares of GBTC yesterday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.21 + .58 today.

Oil +20% Again
Rally Fades by Half
Today’s market got off to a strong start yet again but at the end of the day we had two down waves starting around 2:45 that cut gains by about 2/3. Market internals were a bit on the soft side with NYSE A/D only 4:3 and NASDAQ 17:15. Volume was lighter than the past few days and the DJIA had 21 up and 9 down. The biggest losers were BA -41 and MCD -18 DPs while the gainers were UNH +37, AAPL +30 and HD +26 DPs. All these names were higher before the last hour with AAPL trading $301 but finishing $297.80. The news of the day on the economy was not great. ISM Non-manufacturing Index for Aprildropped to 41.8from 52.5 in March. 50% is the breakpoint for expansion/contraction. The trade balance showed a widening in the deficit to $44.4 billion from $39.8 in February. Exports were down $20 billion. Tomorrow we have the ADP Employment change report for April and weekly MBA Mortgage applications.

SECTORS: Earnings played a part in today’s market. NEM was a strong report and the stock, already up from $58 on Friday finished the day $64.91 +2.17 (3.46%), DIS was the big loser with volumes down due to closed parks and no production taking place at the studios. Streaming is strong, but a big piece is being done at reduced rates or even for free. At the close the stock was $101.06 -2.12 but after a small rally, the conference call started and after the company disclosed it is suspending its dividend for the first half it slid to 99.25. BYND reported good sales growth and the recent closures of several major meat processing plants has been buoying prices. The stock has rallied off an April low of $57 and closed today $100.16 +5.00 and is currently trading $105 + $5 more.
Two companies in the same business, EA and ATVI went in opposite directions. EA was a miss and after closing $119.61 +2.78 it fell t0 112.12 and is currently 113.98 – 5.62. Activision (ATVI) beat handily and it had closed 68.53 +1.83 and is now $72.40 + 3.87 more. Pinterest (PINS) had risen from a low of $10.10 last month to close $20.81 -.62 but missed on several metrics and has traded down to $16.70 and is $17.15 – 3.66. Also, on the bad news side, UAL finished $24.12 -1.14 (4.5%) and Norwegian Cruise (NCLH) warned about it continuing as a “going concern.” The stock is down from $60 and finished the day $11.18 -3.26 (22.58%).
FOOD SUPPLY: was HIGHER with TSN +1.57, BGS +.77, FLO +.11, CAG -.03, MDLZ +.19, KHC +.02, CALM -.39, JJSF +2.66, SAFM +1.97, and LANC +7.67 (5.68%).

OIL, $24.56 +4.17. Oil was higher overnight and the rally continued on all day. The stocks were mixed with only the big names moving higher. XLE closed $37.52 +.43 (1.16%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,710.60 -2.70. After the recent gains, Gold broke solidly above $1,700 and traded as high as $1788 last Wednesday. We were stopped out of our position in the 5/15 165 calls and I replaced them with the $163 strike. We are also long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $8985 +50. After we traded in the uptrend, I mentioned this weekend that I felt we would have to test 6750 and yesterday we hit 6465 before turning back up. Today’s action was a continuing move higher with a high of 9560. While I want to add the 350, I still want to wait and see some stabilization. We still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $10.02 + .05 today.

SECTORS: Earnings played a part in today’s market. NEM was a strong report and the stock, already up from $58 on Friday finished the day $64.91 +2.17 (3.46%), DIS was the big loser with volumes down due to closed parks and no production taking place at the studios. Streaming is strong, but a big piece is being done at reduced rates or even for free. At the close the stock was $101.06 -2.12 but after a small rally, the conference call started and after the company disclosed it is suspending its dividend for the first half it slid to 99.25. BYND reported good sales growth and the recent closures of several major meat processing plants has been buoying prices. The stock has rallied off an April low of $57 and closed today $100.16 +5.00 and is currently trading $105 + $5 more.
Two companies in the same business, EA and ATVI went in opposite directions. EA was a miss and after closing $119.61 +2.78 it fell t0 112.12 and is currently 113.98 – 5.62. Activision (ATVI) beat handily and it had closed 68.53 +1.83 and is now $72.40 + 3.87 more. Pinterest (PINS) had risen from a low of $10.10 last month to close $20.81 -.62 but missed on several metrics and has traded down to $16.70 and is $17.15 – 3.66. Also, on the bad news side, UAL finished $24.12 -1.14 (4.5%) and Norwegian Cruise (NCLH) warned about it continuing as a “going concern.” The stock is down from $60 and finished the day $11.18 -3.26 (22.58%).

OIL, $24.56 +4.17. Oil was higher overnight and the rally continued on all day. The stocks were mixed with only the big names moving higher. XLE closed $37.52 +.43 (1.16%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,710.60 -2.70. After the recent gains, Gold broke solidly above $1,700 and traded as high as $1788 last Wednesday. We were stopped out of our position in the 5/15 165 calls and I replaced them with the $163 strike. We are also long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $8985 +50. After we traded in the uptrend, I mentioned this weekend that I felt we would have to test 6750 and yesterday we hit 6465 before turning back up. Today’s action was a continuing move higher with a high of 9560. While I want to add the 350, I still want to wait and see some stabilization. We still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $10.02 + .05 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

For Trading May 6th

For Trading MAY 6th
Oil +20% Again
Rally Fades by Half
Today’s market got off to a strong start yet again but at the end of the day we had two down waves starting around 2:45 that cut gains by about 2/3. Market internals were a bit on the soft side with NYSE A/D only 4:3 and NASDAQ 17:15. Volume was lighter than the past few days and the DJIA had 21 up and 9 down. The biggest losers were BA -41 and MCD -18 DPs while the gainers were UNH +37, AAPL +30 and HD +26 DPs. All these names were higher before the last hour with AAPL trading $301 but finishing $297.80. The news of the day on the economy was not great. ISM Non-manufacturing Index for Aprildropped to 41.8from 52.5 in March. 50% is the breakpoint for expansion/contraction. The trade balance showed a widening in the deficit to $44.4 billion from $39.8 in February. Exports were down $20 billion. Tomorrow we have the ADP Employment change report for April and weekly MBA Mortgage applications.

Overstock.com could begin first Bitcoin-based stock trades

Overstock.com could begin first Bitcoin-based stock trades submitted by castom to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Remember: Bitcoin Cash is solving a problem Core has failed to solve for 6 years. It is urgently needed as a technical solution, and has nothing to do with "Roger" or "Jihan".

I'm finding that "history lessons" are needed more and more, as thousands of new people swarm into crypto and land on the highly one-sided, heavily censored bitcoin sub. There are even misinformation "reps" like bitusher in r / BitcoinBeginners blatantly lying to people that are new. As a result, these newcomers have no understanding of the original purpose of Bitcoin nor its raison d'etre.
Roger puts himself out there. But Roger is neither our "leader" nor our "figurehead". He's an individual. An individual with strong ideals who doesn't do this for the money because he is already staggeringly wealthy from Bitcoin. He supports this movement because he is (and always has been) an outspoken advocate of financial sovereignty, freedom of speech, and freedom from tyranny.
Bitcoin Cash is a technical solution to a technical problem that has been ignored for too long. A problem that individuals, business, and miners have presented to Core with both urgency and utlimately anger, since 2012. Gavin Andresen, Satoshi Nakamoto's right hand man has stated publicly that "Bitcoin Cash is the Bitcoin" he was working on in 2010. Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum has publicly called out mods of Bitcoin for censorship of Bitcoin Cash. As far back as 2012 Gavin was expressing serious concern about the Core Dev team as being both "ineffective and unproductive as egos were too big, and infighting was more prominent than forward progress" (paraphrase).
Understand something:
Bitcoin Cash proponents are people who actually care about Bitcoin and why it was made. These are people who had dreams of Bitcoin bringing financial sovereignty to countries whose Governments steal citizens money right from their bank accounts without asking permission. Andreas Antonopoulos used to speak of Bitcoin bringing Banking to the poorest in the world. Companies were being built to swoop into Africa and bring micro-transfers to the SMS financial system that currently services hundreds of millions there.
The attack on Bitcoin has been under way since 2012. And it hasn't been from Bitcoin Cash. The attack was the "opportunity cost" inflicted on Bitcoin by an apathetic and out-of-touch development team that wouldn't enhance it. Fidelity came and went. NASDAQ came and went. Patrick Byrne - Bitcoins biggest fan, wanted to build the first decentralized stock exchange atop Bitcoin but found it too slow and expensive to coopt.
BitWage was created to enable salaries in Bitcoin and begin the much needed "closed-loop" system that would enable people to be paid in bitcoin, and in turn pay rent, buy groceries, and one day pay taxes in bitcoin. Never needing to cash out to Fiat. These are the dreams of those who support Bitcoin Cash. This is why there is such passion behind this movement.
What does this have to do with Roger Ver? Nothing.
The first wave of Bitcoin Cash adoption has already begun. And its coming from Merchants. Merchants who've become unable to conduct business with BTC due to high fees and 24+ hr transaction times. Cores failure to keep Bitcoin relevant and functional is the reason Bitcoin Cash is seeing any success at all with Merchants and users. Bitcoin Cash never needed to exist. It exists because of Core.
Before the shit finally hit the fan, Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase flew to meet with Core developers to try and finally get a solution in place. He walked away from that meeting declaring: Having Core as the only Dev Team is Bitcoin's Biggest Systemic Risk:
He wrote:
"The Core team contains some very high IQ people, but there are some things which I find very concerning about them:"
1) Some of them show very poor communication skills or a lack of maturity — this has hurt bitcoin’s ability to bring new protocol developers into the space.
2) They prefer ‘perfect’ solutions to ‘good enough’. And if no perfect solution exists *they seem ok with inaction*, even if that puts bitcoin at risk.
3) They seem to have a strong belief that bitcoin will not be able to scale long term, and any block size increase is a slippery slope to a future that they are *unwilling to allow** .*
"Even though core says they are ok with a hard fork to 2MB (they have it on their own roadmap, just very far in the future), they refuse to prioritize it. They prefer to withhold something that could help the network now, because they don’t trust the community to make educated decisions in the future"
Bitcoin Cash is the solution to the problems Brian outlines above.
Bitcoin Cash exists because of Core. Not because of Roger Ver.
Bitcoin Cash solves a problem that has remained unsolved for too many years.

Nasdaq planning to use Ravencoin to launch a security token platform?

So we know Nasdaq is planning on entering the tokenized securities market, but in case you missed it:

https://theblockcrypto.com/2018/10/12/nasdaq-is-looking-at-gatecrashing-a-red-hot-industry-with-a-platform-to-issue-tokenized-securities/

In the article there's a relevant quote: "Nasdaq is speaking with a number of firms as part of its efforts, including blockchain startup Symbiont".

Here's another article: https://www.livebitcoinnews.com/nasdaq-reportedly-considers-creating-platform-for-cryptocurrency-security-tokens/

"Reports indicate that Nasdaq is pushing through with these plans, holding high-level talks with Symbiont – a blockchain startup focusing on institutional blockchain solutions. According to the inside sources, the proposed Nasdaq platform will both issue and trade cryptocurrency security tokens."

What does Symbiont have to do with Ravencoin? Well, follow the trail...here's a news release from Back in mid-2017: https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/07/19/1054397/0/en/Medici-Ventures-Announces-Strategic-Investment-in-Symbiont.html

"Medici Ventures and Symbiont today announced the completion of a strategic investment in Symbiont by Medici Ventures, a major investor in blockchain technology. As part of the new relationship, the two companies will collaborate on strategic projects involving both Medici Ventures and its parent company, Overstock.com Common Shares (NASDAQ:OSTK) / Series A Preferred (Medici Ventures’ t0 platform : OSTKP) / Series B Preferred (OTCQX:OSTBP)."

Now we already know Patrick Byrne/Overstock.com is a big fan of Ravencoin, and has helped fund development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEaqCdind2Y

"Ravencoin, I think it's Bitcoin 3.0"...

https://youtu.be/wLUshd-b6Lc?t=75

"Well I'm not really interested in cryptocurrencies per se. Although in general, I guess there's nothing wrong with me saying there is an open-source project of which I'm really letting something big out of the bag here. I'll tell you. But there's an open-source project called Ravencoin, which Overstock has put millions of dollars into teams. We have people contributing to this open-source project. We think this coin actually has quite a future. It's about — it's bitcoin, but a thousand times more energy efficient. And there's other real interesting virtues to it — so Ravencoin. But other than that, I stay out of the cryptocurrency game. I'm building the — we're focusing on applications of this technology and not just betting on coins themselves."

We also know they unveiled tZero at the Nasdaq headquarters back in late 2015: https://www.coindesk.com/overstock-unveils-blockchain-trading-platform-to/

Byrne has also talked about tZero partnering with Symbiont "at some point", check page 12 of their earnings call transcript back in March of this year: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/External.File?item=UGFyZW50SUQ9NjkwNjMwfENoaWxkSUQ9NDAxMjM0fFR5cGU9MQ==&t=1

"There's all kinds of -- tZero and Symbiont are wonderful partners at some point. So this ecosystem may seem random, but there's a real underlying structure to it."

and page 14 with Byrne's comments in Ravencoin:

"Next, just so I never mention or could be accused of not mentioning it, I'm going to mention Ravencoin, which is -- put this in the category of Texas
Gulf Sulphur. I have now officially publicly mentioned Ravencoin. Don't know what it's worth, I probably should disclose we have over 60 million
of these; it's currently trading at $0.03 a piece, so a couple million bucks, nothing to get excited about. Who knows? But it's not our coin it's an open source project, of which we became quite enamored and we threw in several millions of dollars of developers to help it along and such, it's a very
interesting project, and that's enough."

So are Nasdaq/Symbiont/Medici Ventures/Overstock/tZero/Ravencoin planning something huge behind the scenes? I highly doubt Nasdaq will just sit back and let ICE/New York Stock Exchange have all the fun with Bakkt.

Ariel Ling, COO of BitMax.io (BTMX.com) Exchange, Shared Insights of Crypto Industry (Part IV)

Ariel Ling, as the co-founder and COO of BitMax.io (BTMX.com), was invited to the interview by Fred Schebesta, the CEO of Crypto Finder (Finder.com). Ariel has 18-year progressive executive experience in strategic planning, business development, budgeting and financial analysis risk management, regulatory program implementation, and process improvement for operational efficiency. She has an in-depth understanding of capital market products (stocks, fixed income, foreign exchange) in financial services and the development of international banking strategic trends (M&A, market structure, regulatory reforms and their impact). Her lustrous career on Wall Street made this interview a popular link on YouTube.
(Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBYK-w2uxWc)
F: Do you believe this going to help bring more institutions into the space?
A: I am not very familiar with TokenSoft. It really depends on who are the backers, institutional backers of this venture. If the institutional backers of this venture are well regarded, are reputable, absolutely. Because at the end of day if you look at the value chain, the exchanges they are doing trading, they are doing broker dealer, they are doing wallet management themselves, and they are doing custody themselves. It becomes very nebulous. So for TokenSoft, they understand security token, which means under my prediction, it’s completely regulated just like securities. For securities, you must have a custody, and you must have a clearing house. Those are inevitable. So for them, they want to take a step ahead, and I also think that’s a smart move.
F: And we had T0 exchange launched just last week as well. Let’s get back to that question. From a broader base of adoption in the space, for 2019, Ariel, what’s your prediction in where those are going to be cleaned up?
A: I can’t predict the regulatory progress because it really comes down to how each step the government takes; sometimes it takes longer, and sometimes it takes shorter. And when the lawmaking takes place, it always takes more time to get implemented.
F: Yes. And we also talked about the digital asset, the tokenization of asset.
A: Yeah, when I’m looking at it, there are people always saying there’s coin, and there’s token. So I like to use the word: digital asset. So there’s one aspect of currency coin. Those are typical like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and stable coins. So their functionality is actually getting interesting. The origin of Bitcoin is really a payment processing platform. So their development is kind of like FX. You can either hold it, hoping the value goes up, or use it to buy product and services. So they’re like foreign currencies. And there is the other aspect, securitized token. So the token itself would present, whether equity or debt, certain percentage of the underlying project or underlying venture. So for those, as long as they pass certain security test, they are treated as securities. From security trading perspective, if you look at how the Wall Street is structured, and how the US equity trading market is structured, it’s very simple. №1, You must have a broker dealer license in order to take the client order and to put on the risk; №2, all what exchanges do is order matching, and then providing liquidity to the market right? On the primary market it’s IPO, while on the secondary market it’s trading. And after the exchanges trade it, execute it, and then the clearing house comes in to make sure the books and records are verified. Money is moved from the banks to the brokerage accounts. And then the custody piece is that everybody can pick their own custody to hold the assets. So those are the components where I think for the US, the regulator has to make a very strong distinction between what will be subjected on CFCT, what is currency, or what is commodity, and then the rest of it falls under the SEC regime and what it takes — Is it the same as equity or slightly different? This I would think is similar to UK where the FCA has to think about as well. That leads to an interesting dynamic about utility token. This is where I don’t have a particular view, because utility token value is very diminished if you take the token outside of this particular platform. So it is designed to be used on a platform. So this is where I am actually interested in. I want to see how that gets developed from a regulatory perspective. And from a BitMax.io perspective, we put actually a bit more stringent requirement on ourselves. When we list a utility token and when we design it, we just follow the security markets. For example in US, that’s why you need a trusted custody structure just to support that. And in BitMax.io, it’s crypto to crypto; there is no fiat. So that aspect diminishes a little bit. And from a market trading manipulation surveillance perspective which is very heavy for equity, for example, if you trade anything, the regulator will get your report in real time, knowing every single step. So nobody could actually manipulate the market. We also take the same stand for our exchange. We monitor the volume, and we monitor trading behavior. If there’s someone abusing the market, meaning a robot or anything, we identify the account, we notify the account owners, saying whether it is wash trade or whether this is artificially to jag up the price and then dump it, and we give the time to correct. And if he/she doesn’t, we basically freeze the account. So the users can see that it is a fair market. We have probably applied this called market manipulation kind of rule. This is very classical for equity trading. Every single exchange must demonstrate the capability and behavior to do that.
F: OK. Two last things. You have been through four crises as you said through, like the dot-com bubble, Sarbanes Oxley, Lehman Brother collapse and European financial crisis. From your experience seeing all the rise and bust, where do you think we’re at in the cryptocurrency market.
A: I think this goes back to the trading aspect, depending on whether this is a V down or a U down or U curve. So the U curve is basically when the market collapses, it takes a longer time to find a bottom. It takes a longer time for the market to find the equilibrium. And once they find it, they rise up. Or, it’s like a quick collapse. It’s down very fast and reaches the bottom. And then, there’s some catalyst event, either catalyst from a market structure, or catalyst from the market expansion itself. Suddenly it gives a boost. And then it bounces right back up. So when I look at what is happening with digital asset or crypto trading, it’s a bubble to the extent, but it’s also a market correction. And I always compare this to the internet bubble to some extent, because I remember very vividly when I first started working in 1999 on the Wall Street, the Internet was so hot that you could get an IPO without even having a website. And Nasdaq peaked in basically 2000. But then, it collapsed. It took until 2015 for Nasdaq to reach back to the last peak. So you can see how many bubbles right about dot-com because people literally just forget about the economic valuation, the intrinsic business model that kind of aspects of it. So when you look at what happened in the crypto, the Bitcoin peaked at December of 2017. Around that period, there were many many projects that could raise money so easily. This is what we call air-projects. Do they really have fundamentals? Do they really have a viable business model? Do they really have a solid user base? If they do not have those three, then you would expect what would happen when people recognize the value of that token is not sustainable, going back to my finance view. When people see through that, with Bitcoin itself it’s going through a hard time, the rest of the altcoins are actually crushing a lot more dramatically than Bitcoin. So where do we see the balance, it is just my personal view that there are couple economic theories, and one of the theories is about cost. In the financial crisis, the worst, darkest day of banking crisis is the Lehman collapse. I was right in Lehman when they fell off the cliff. And then the domino went from Lehman to Morgan to every single bank. Every single bank felt the pressure. The bank stocks got depressed so hard. At that time one of the things from investors, especially those really smart traditional investors, was looking at the book value. So if the bank stock price, was lower than a quarter of book value, of course it was a value play. It’s below the cost, basically. So you go back to Bitcoin. Assuming it costs 3,000 dollars to mine a Bitcoin, maybe that’s where certain value investor will hold a view like from a valuation perspective that if the valuation is lower than what it takes to make it, it can be called a good value. So this is where it goes back to the market that from a trading perspective, the volatility you could see where there might be some breakthrough of different resistance levels. But at the end of day, it’s all about finding the equilibrium from a valuation perspective. When it hits there, then you will see the value investors come in. If it’s cheaper enough, there are more people who will probably look into it. So when it’s 20,000 for Bitcoin, do you know how many people can afford it? Maybe not, but what if it’s getting down 4000, 3000, and especially for certain countries are way more developed than certain countries, where people understand the liquidity and usage behind Bitcoin like you can use it, you can buy piece of coffee from Starbucks. Then it comes down to the value. So right now I think it really goes back to the fundamental from a finance perspective. It’s finding the valuation, the intrinsic value. Whether it’s currency token, or it’s an altcoin from a security type of token perspective.
F: Alright Ariel. That was incredible. We asked everybody on the show that what the price they think is going to be of Bitcoin on New Year’s Eve 2019 the clock strikes 12:00. We had a whole series of predictions last year in US dollars. What’s your prediction for the price of Bitcoin?
A: I think right now… hmm the Bitcoin right now is what? 35 hundred?
F: We are trading at 3468 dollars.
A: I don’t know. It’s crazy. I actually really like Bitcoin. I mean I like Bitcoin more now because it’s cheaper and I can buy it. But when you look at it before the crisis hit, I already hoped by the end of year if they could get back to 5000 I would be really happy, because it’s pretty much a psychologic level.
F: Okay.
A: Let’s hope for that.
F: Awesome. Ariel, thank you again for coming on to the show, and your incredible insight into the Wall Street market right now. And do check out guys on BitMax.io! We’ve got margin trading and some derivatives coming up, some new improvements we can see on the platform. Thank you very much again Ariel! We will see you guys TOMORROW!

Significant bitscoin events of 2016 that bitscoiners pointedly ignored

With 2016 about to end, it may be time to list the significant events of 2016 in Bitscoin Space.
We may let them list the events that they remember because they were supposed to be Good for Bitscoin. It is up to us to remember those that they pretended not to notice. Such as:
What else?

Why so much speculation

Short answer
If people are incapable of estimating the correct number logically, the only method to the answer is by genetic algorithm where cloud wisdom hopefuly takes time to solve and volatility is inevitable.
Long answer
Believe it or not, the valuation of a currency-purpose asset is in fact much easier than the valuation of a stock. To be a currency-purpose asset, a somewhat universal valuation opinion must be among the mass. For a stock, on the contrary, one needs to evaluate many factors such as marketing/product/… and people have different opinions about the possible gain of a stock.
Every asset has a production cost, the piece of paper of stock certificate has little production cost. For currency-purpose asset, the production cost is thought to be independent of W-questions such as "who produces this asset", "where is this asset produced", "how many sale a producer has done", …etc. It is this property that the so-called universal opinion is formed. Money is also supposed not to have capital gain like stocks such as "I will have a generous dividend next year", so there is indeed not a "calculate the present value of all future gain by having a stock" but a "global understanding of the cost to fake/rollback/cheat a trust" for currency-purpose asset.
Let
Story 1 Assume all miners calculate the production cost in the coming 8 years and users are not investors. Let's express price in real term so that weird fiat monetary policy has nothing to do with the following argument we shall focus on.
The equation for cost of the production is 0 = KI + sum(KT - ( F+C(t, t+2)) * P, from t to t+2)
Therefore P = K * (T + I/210000 * 2 )/(F + C(2.41, 4.41)). Note that C(2.41, 4.41)=7.4515 so the miner will sell at least at this price. A user, as a non-investor who never cares P, may buy the coin from the miner and sell the coin for a merchant service/goods who will adjust the service bitcoin-nominated price with P accordingly. For your curiosity, by current data, the P by Story 1 is 3.49444E+11 Joule.
Is the Story 1 reallistic ? Not at all.
What about a miner who is thinking to run the business till t1=3 only. Then C(2.41, 3)=12.5 and this miner can undercut other miners in Story 1. Every users, as non-investors, do not care any bit about P because the user will always need to commit the same real-term service price from the merchant. Being undercut means death, so all the miners will split the pricing logic so that two P numbers, one for time 2.41 to 3, the other for 3 to 4.41; for your curiosity, C(3, 4.41) = 5.3413
Story 2 As the miners competition settled down, the P is not constant any more; there will be two P numbers, one, being lower, for time 2.41 to 3, the other, being higher, for 3 to 4.41.
Is the Story 2 reallistic ? Not at all.
What about a user who starts noticing that the P will increase and being investors is a good deal. While this user may observe the increasing of P empirically but never logically understanding, knowing nothing about math and miners' plan, this user will speculate between market price of P; he might buy at 5000 and see it explode at 10000 and take profit at 6000 (in USD term) and has no idea the 5000 may be much lower than the correct number. Should the P is pricing at the correct number so that there is no room between the two P, speculators are gone and people are comfortable the stable price with store-of-value and media-of-exchange.
Is the Story 2 realistic ? Not at all.
What about a hobby miner wants to be investor too and starts mining from time 2.41 to 3 and never sell all the coins for users but only pay partially little for the electricity while price bullish and keep the rest coins as investment for himself after time 3 ?
Story 3 Being also speculation. While other users investors may increase the volatility (mainly because being without fundamental knowledge but rather TA or market-sentiment orientated traders), this move will shrink the room between the two P and therefore decrease the volatility of P. So the ratio of time 2.41-to-3 miners to time 2.41-to-4.41 miners increases up to the two P are equal then no more new miners of such plan.
Is the Story 3 realistic ? Not at all.
What about there are miners/investors for all possible time frame t0 to t1 in the future ?
Let
Story 4 Therefore, the only setting where no arbitrage for miners and investors is such that P=KT/F and the graph of (Kt + K ) / K is like this.
We know T and F and the ratio of Kt/K, but what is exactly K ?
No one really knows. K could be low or high, one can only guess by observation. We know the difficulty is proportional to hash rate and hash rate is proportional to Kt and K. So you can see the graph of difficulty to have a guess of K. Should the two graph looks similar, we know people are finally logical and feel delight. By the difficulty graph and miners' time frame to amortize fixed cost so that it can be averaged out, taking the current global hash as K and updating it as time goes by may be a good guess. For your curiosity, currently KT/F is 2.13007E+12 Joule.
BUT. It is not logical to assume people are all logical. If people are never logical and never investors, a graph of KT/( F + C(t, t+1) ) which is increasing till KT/F shall resemble the graph of P. If some people are logical and some are not, the empirical graph will be hysterical around and between.
I tend not to comment about pricing in public. But since I know wall street and I know what wall street knows, feeling sad about the mass, bear me. I thought these information could leak to the mass if there were future contracts after each halving date, but no luck for such contracts.
Credit: not me. I knew this long after someone knew it.

Who Accepts Bitcoin?

Who Accepts Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is the, without doubt, the biggest cryptocurrency. Many major companies around the world are now accepting bitcoin payment for online goods and services (in Denver, you can even use Bitcoin to pay for your parking!) An aggressive campaign led by Coinbase (where $1 million worth of transactions were processed for free) prompted large companies to start accepting bitcoin by using third-party services like Bitpay & Cryptopay. As the trend has been started it appears to be growing, so who accepts Bitcoin? There are some surprising companies and we’ve listed them below.
Who accepts Bitcoin?
KFC Canada – The world’s largest chicken franchise – KFC, is allowing customers in Canada to pay for “The Bitcoin Bucket” using bitcoins for a limited time. “The Bitcoin Bucket”, a themed container can be purchased for $20 CAD, and is delivered to customers. The digital currency is accepted only via BitPay – an online payment mode and does not encourage customers to pay crypto at the cash counters.
Overstock.com – This large online retail store sells electronic products at minimal prices due to excess stock. Overstock.com allows customers to buy using bitcoin. It is the first major retailer to accept bitcoins and other major cryptocurrencies.
Subway – Subway in Buenos Aires has begun to accept bitcoin as a payment method. The belief is that accepting bitcoin as a method of payment would increase business.
Microsoft – The tech giant Microsoft is enabling users to create a Microsoft account in which the user can deposit Bitcoin. A well-structured process allows users then, to utilize these funds for purchasing movies, games, and apps in Xbox stores and Windows.
Reddit – Reddit; a community that provides thousands of your favorite things. It allows you to buy premium features with bitcoins.
Virgin Galactic – Bitcoins are taking the place of old conventional currencies at a fast pace. Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group including Virgin Galactic, Virgin Mobile, Virgin Airline, (and many more) has said that Virgin is accepting bitcoins to reserve tickets for a space travel. Branson feels that Bitcoin is a low-risk option; he has invested in it in the past and encourages others to do so now. Space travel costs 98 bitcoins or 250,000 US Dollars.
OkCupid – OkCupid, the world’s most popular dating site has started accepting cryptocurrency. By partnering with Coinbase, OkCupid allow users to subscribe with bitcoin. The costs for a “premium subscription” list called the “A-List”, can be up to 0.10 bitcoins or $10 a month.
Namecheap – A domain name registrar and web hosting company with nearly 3 million domains are accepting the digital currency as a method of payment for their services. Namecheap is the first company among numerous domain name registrar companies to accept bitcoins for registering a website, hosting domains, etc.
CheapAir.com – Now, you can spend a little of your cryptocurrency on airline reservations, hotel bookings, and car rentals. CheapAir.com, a travel booking site enables customers to purchase both domestic and international flight tickets with bitcoin. It is the only company to accept bitcoin currency for air travel and customers can pay from their Coinbase wallets.
Expedia.com – The exclusive online travel booking agency Expedia, has partnered with Coinbase to create a bitcoin payment option. Since June 2014, Expedia users have been able to book their hotels with bitcoins. As of now, Expedia is accepting digital currency only for hotel bookings.
Gyft – Gyft, a leading digital gift card retailer offers gift cards in exchange for bitcoin. The association of Gyft with Coinbase ensures that bitcoin payments are made via a Coinbase wallet. Gift cards can be redeemed or used to purchase goods at over 200 retailers.
Newegg.com – Popular online computer hardware and electronics retailer now accepts bitcoin as payment. With bitpay as the digital currency processing partner, Newegg expects to see higher sales in certain product categories.
Wikipedia – Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia with more than 4,570,000 articles has established a partnership with Coinbase to accept donations in the form of virtual currency. To provide users with an ease of choosing payment options, Wikipedia’s donation page is now flexible to make one-time or recurring donations using bitcoin.
Alza – The biggest and most successful Czech e-retailer store has introduced bitcoin payments for shoppers. In many of its showrooms, bitcoin ATMs are available to facilitate smoother transactions for those paying in bitcoin. It is accepted via BitPay.
The Internet Archive – The internet archive provides free access to web documentation such as music, software applications, games, and so on. It has expressed its interest in accepting digital currencies as donations. This nonprofit organization assures its supporters to use bitcoins to enhance its operations and achieve its mission of providing free and secure services to the public.
PizzaforCoins – Want pizza? Order now and pay using bitcoins at PizzaforCoins. Any pizza joint including Pizza Hut, Dominos or Papa John’s is available with this service. Order now, enjoy your meal and pay with bitcoins. It also accepts more than 50 other cryptocurrencies.
Reeds Jewels, Inc. – At REEDS.com, you can shop exclusive jewelry, watches, and loose diamonds with your bitcoins using a bitcoin wallet like Coinbase. Reeds Jewels has brick-and-mortar stores in 13 states and also offers online shopping. Purchase of loose diamonds is complimented with a free delivery.
Shopify Stores – Looking to spend bitcoins? Shopify – an e-commerce platform, helps merchants to sell their commodities through an online platform similar to eBay. Shopify has recognized digital currency and is integrated with BitPay to simplify the payment process.
Final thoughts…
Many companies are embracing digital currencies by partnering with crypto platforms to transfer digital funds in exchange for goods and services. Though many of the larger companies have started t0 accept bitcoin, so many are still lagging behind and have yet to jump on the band-wagon. The reality is that the future of online shopping is definitely heading towards virtual currencies and the time has come for bitcoin to be a staple payment option when you reach the tills. If you’re not in, you can’t win.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but the US economy will collapse by the end of 2015.

Here are my reasons:
First of all, the US has been fiercely pushing QE, which has seen US debt increase exponentially over the recent years. I believe that this is unsustainable, and that the US economy is in for an ever bigger collapse than we have ever seen before. As such, I don't see much value in the stock and forex markets for these 2 years. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFDe5kUUyT0
Secondly, China, the largest holder of US debt has announced that it is no longer "in the interest of the country to increase their foreign reserves". This means that China is not only NOT buying US debt, but I would assume that they will be looking to DECREASE the US debt they currently have. Source: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-11-20/pboc-says-no-longer-in-china-s-favor-to-boost-record-reserves.html Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nengClMwqbw
Thirdly, the rising tension in the middle east -- Syria, Iran, Iraq. This is a proxy war between the USA and the powers from the East (China, Russia), and has already been going on for decades. If anything, it's only going to get worse, as the USA continues to try to assert their dominance in the middle east, especially over oil trading. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZK5gRLJ9h0
These are my reasons for why the economy will collapse by the end of 2015. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but before you dismiss my comments, I advise you to take a look at my links and judge for yourself with an open mind.
If you agree with me, my advise is to BUY BITCOINS, and let's build a new world together =)

Patrick Byrne launches t0.com...gives hints it's powered by ethereum!

http://www.coindesk.com/overstock-unveils-blockchain-trading-platform-to/
I watched the entire press conference live. The whole time, I assumed t0.com ran on the bitcoin blockchain, but apparently this isn't so.
Originally, Patrick hired the Counterparty guys to build t0 on the bitcoin blockchain, but they flaked-out on him and founded their own company - Symbiont.
The video isn't on YouTube yet, so I'll have to paraphrase from memory, but this is why I think he's using ethereum. At the very end of his talk he said t0.com is "ledger agnostic" or "blockchain agnostic". He then looked at his lawyer and asked "Can we announce what technology we're using to power t0?"....and then Patrick almost answered...but his lawyer said "no, not yet."
Right around that same time, Patrick gave examples that some stock exchange start-ups use Bitcoin, some use Ripple, some use Counterparty, etc. (I don't think he mentioned any others)...since his lawyer said NOT to announce t0's technology, that basically implies that t0.com is NOT using Bitcoin, Ripple, or Counterparty.
If you google "blockchain agnostic", the first results you get will be etherparty.io, BC they wrote a blog on June 1st specifically called Blockchain Agnostic
You can get all the details on their site, but long story short, etherparty is built on ethereum!
Lastly, I don't think the timing is an accident. Patrick may have waited until Frontier was successfully launched, and then he held his press conference.
To reiterate, I'm not saying it's a slam dunk, but there's several good clues that he's using etherparty.io, which runs on ethereum...
If this turns out to be true, it is excellent news!
there's already quite a buzz going on over at bitcoin about Patrick's announcement...many are upset that he didn't announce he's using the BTC blockchain: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3ftcsv/t0com_is_built_to_be_ledger_agnostic/
There are several other threads over there as well about t0.com that are worth reading.
Overstock's and t0's Press Release said the video will be uploaded here:

...but it's not up yet.

Patrick Byrne is a sell out....

Now that we know that his T0 project is built on top of a private centralized ledger with PeerNova I think it's time to severe ties with him. However, I'm sure that he will continue to use his Bitcoin hashtags and saying his new platform is "ledger agnostic" to try to get the true crypto enthusiastic Bitcoin-ers to rally behind him.
What he will come to find out in the near future is that any centralized ledger is always mutable whether it be by the companies' specific intent, a rogue employee or a hacker.
I'd recommend no longer giving up your bitcoins to his company and start ignoring all of his pro-bitcoin statements while he secretly works on his own private databases to maintain the status quo with the only difference being that he will gain control of the equities/stock markets rather than large banks or brokers.
At this time I think the best alternatives will be Nasdaq using the Open Asset Protocol (colored coins) on top of the Bitcoin network and/or counterparty. I look forward to seeing more news from them as time goes on.

What are your Passive Income (Investment) streams?

Do any of you currently have money parked in passive income investment streams such as Equity funds or others? What do you think of the Equity markets, is this sustainable and will it be going on a bull trend for much longer?
I'm currently using Forex robots to make my money grow for me, but would like to diversify my investment portfolio, due to the high risks involved. I recently diversified some into Bitcoins, which is yet another highly volatile currency (commodity, if you prefer).
I'm open to all kinds of possibilities so let's hear it, what are your passive income streams? What kind of investment opportunities have caught your eye?
On the other hand, I also believe that the US (and world) Economy is heading for an inevitable collapse, by the end of 2015. I have my reasons to believe that investing in Bitcoin is actually more profitable and safer than ETFs at the moment, and here are my reasons why:
First of all, the US has been fiercely pushing QE, which has seen US debt increase exponentially over the recent years. I believe that this is unsustainable, and that the US economy is in for an ever bigger collapse than we have ever seen before. As such, I don't see much value in the stock and forex markets for these 2 years. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFDe5kUUyT0
