    Some major profit taking going on. I don't blame anybody who does either.

    I bought at Gemini with the thinking to spread my 1/5 bitcoins out lol. When you buy at gdax do move them anywhere from their or stright to the offline safe?

    After I buy on GDAX, I send it to my ledger usually. If I'm thinking about buying an alt coin, I might leave it there because eventually I'll send it to Poloniex or Bittrex, the two other places where I hold accounts.

    To be honest, I'm not sure. Be careful sending it to betting places. I think CB kicks people out sometimes when they use BTC to gamble.

    No, the way the Tether scam works is they create fake volume via wash trading, so if they do it again, the price will rise on high volume.

    If it does, I think I may take profits. The entire market is too correlated for me now. No way to hedge risk.

    Mark my words. After Dec 18 you dont want to be in cryptos.

    The Banksters will try to manipulate the price down via naked short selling, the same way they manipulate the gold and silver prices. Contracts will be settled in USD.

    They cant do that now. One way ride.

    I will bump this. GL. Bankers werent going to let you win, once it can be shorted by unlimited smashing of 5 billion notional at a time like precious metals. Unlimited fiat will overwhelm bid stack every time. Guarantee it.

    anyone do any bets in BC sportsbooks last year or the year or the year before and realize they might have ended up betting what is now like 10k on a random MLB day game?

    Not a bet, but I bought some Beats by Dre on overstock.com way back in 2014. Without looking up the actual value now, I probably paid $1800 for those now for those headphones. Fuck?!

    I had a large payout from a book into BTC Sunday and have been letting it ride the last couple of days now. I've easily made $1500 on top of my payout.

    It's up to 14,250 now, just wondering how long I let it ride.

    Flirting with 14,500. Up over $2500 in the past 24 hours. I am sure the Asian markets overnight well keep it going. I won't be surprised if we see $15k before early morning.

    Actually, it's worse. I sent .44 BTC for the beats and some computer speakers. So in today's price I paid about $6,700. Wow.

    Here's my story on how I got into bitcoin. It was to get into a movie downloading site and they charged $15, but they wanted this thing called bitcoin. I had never heard of it at the time. So on December 20, 2012 I bought $20 worth of bitcoin and received 1.385 BTC. So I sent the .89 BTC ($15 worth) on December 25, 2012. When I bought this I didn't even know what a bitcoin was.

    So I ended up buying bitcoin when it was about $14 for one bitcoin. Right now it's $15,160 for one bitcoin on Coinbase. And now to buy 1.385 it would cost about $20,700. Imagine if I bought $1,000 worth. Or $5,000 worth. Holy fuck I was sitting on a gold mine and didn't even know it. I'm depressed now.:crying2:

    Debt supernova is close.

    The last two weeks have seen gold drop 3%, Silver down 7.5%, the dollar up around 0.75% and Bitcoin Soar 80%!

    Yeah there's no doubt it'll drop. How much? We shall see. But there's no way it can keep going up like this.

    No one expected it to go from just under 10K on Sunday to nearly 16k by Thurs morning either. I don't see why it can't keep going the way it is as it has been for a few weeks and months now. It's been defying the odds. Will it slow dow and when I think is the more appropriate questions.

    I would expect giant Fib retrace starting Sunday evening into Monday open. At that point people will be trying to catch knives.

    This weekend is gigantic for a number of reasons. Tension in world is palpable.

    Just so I am clear, central banks start shorting cryptos in 48 hours. And that first 62% rip down will be placed in JP Morgan cash balance. Cause they are one of the primary brokers.

    So you are saying when this happens, BTC is going to fall? Seems the news has only driven the price of in regards to the futures trading.

    Bitcoin now hitting 17k. Just continues to smash barriers in record time now.

    And the flash crash drops it from $19.6K to $16.5K in about 90 seconds.

    Crypto at its best. Coinbase cannot handle the volume.
