Answer me this Veeky Forums

Why is Bitcoin controlled by the Chinese? Why are so few Europeans and Americans not interested? Bitcoin's price fluctuations are 99% dependent on the Chinese exchanges. The recent surge can be attributed to Chinese fleeing the yuan. Most miners are Chinese. They control it. What does this even mean for Bitcoin's future?

Always had great experience with Kraken, even two years ago. But yes they've improved dramatically.

I would stay away for one reason user: they don't carry Trumpcoin.

Now I may be a more fickle investor than yourself, but that to me, is a deal-breaker.

I don't know if you've heard the news on the rumour mill, but allegedly, Trumpcoin is anticipated to hit 7000 satoshis this coming Friday. This is all speculation of course, but still a nice profit to be made.

So many people love this game of musical chairs.

This has the potential to burn everyone that buys in. The only guaranteed winners are those who create the currency and hold most of the reserves. Even if it tanks they make money as long s the price is over Zero... But buying into these is lunacy.
It's completely unregulated and major governments could easily outlaw the technology due to it being unregulated.
You also can't actually use Bitcoin for anything, websites that take bitcoin are really only letting you convert them to currency via a 3rd party.

Fried_Sushi

This has the potential to burn everyone that buys in. The only guaranteed winners are those who create the currency and hold most of the reserves.

If you want a guarantee of winning go take your ass to Dave Ramsey and put your money in a savings bond and wait 50 years. Potential to burn or reward is what the market is. If you aren't willing to take a risk don't play the game. Also not all sites convert BTC to USD. TOR markets don't convert and they sell millions of dollars worth of product. The very fact that BTC has a value of $500+ currently is amazing seeing it started out as worth nothing and just an idea. You seem to be stuck in the past and haven't read very much on the subject. Please educate yourself Grandpa.

Okay, you're a cock.

There is a difference between investing in something that has intrinsic value like a company and a fabricated currency that has no value outside of what someone attributes to it.

How can you calculate a P/E ratio on crypto currency? There isn't one.
It's not even like Forex as that is a commodity that is traded for reasons other than speculation.

What percentage of all crypto currency transactions are people buying and selling them for profit compared with using them for transactions?

Spamalot

What about Apple Shares /biz?

What's your appetite for risk?
At 11.17 it's a decent P/E ratio but it will depend on how their 4th quarter sales go.

In the case of Ethereum, LISK, DAO and RISE, people are investing because they see the technology has amazing potential for practical use in the future. If an investor thinks the technology will grow and be worth more in the future because of the success of one of these platforms, then they invest. When the technology grows up it will certainly be used for transactions, I can guarantee this will happen for Ethereum as it actually already exists to a small degree. If a crypto doesn't offer a practical use or solve a problem then your argument is valid.

This is the thing though, it's all "potential" and it has no government regulation.
It's like investing in a Pharma start up with a great idea and no FDA approval, it could be huge or a total bust...

Well, what you need to think about it that the shares are priced correctly at the moment, this means that for the performance of the company the price of the shares is reflective.

For the share price to improve, the company has to perform better, so it is speculation.
Historically the share market trends upwards in the long term, but you're not getting a bargain here.

Personally I am looking at resource stocks that have been hammered down with the market unjustly, if you have a share price that represents a total company value of say 900 million, but the assets could be sold tomorrow for 2 billion and their cash flow is solid, then that's a great investment.

I approach investing like I was buying the business outright.

I literally can't deny or improve that theorem i suppose ill just have to rely on speculation for this risk and see if it pays off.

friendly reminder that Siacoin v1.0 is being released on June 7th. Buy now during the dip. The last release had a 110% pump leading up to it.

VisualMaster
VisualMaster

here's what you need to know:

waves, eth, btc, trump = good
risk, dao, lisk, random bs = bad

waves will probably drop heavy on launch of the ico though, so buy it on the dip instead of now. most short term potential of your options is TRUMP, most long term potential is waves.

FastChef

okay read me this -
what if, some compy-wiz kid found a way to regulate digital currencies. what if, we could tell the world govt. that they could keep a tab on the currency.
would the crypto's still be as enticing as they are now?
with official acceptance, will they become more expensive or fizzle out and die?

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

it would certainly make the marketplace more efficient, though, i would imagine that would entail a cheaper price, since the lucrativeness of the coins and their anti-govt feel would be wiped out when govts adopt them and interbanks start negotiating for very cheap

i've read about Waves and will put in a small amount to the ICO tomorrow.

you say buy in the dip after release, why don't you think there will be a pump after the launch from ICO price?
Why do you think Waves has the long term potential?

like i say, i have read about it, i would just like to hear another opinion.

TechHater

major governments could easily outlaw the technology due to it being unregulated.

We do you need the governments approval for me to send you money ? That's the whole point of Bitcoin ,no banks or governments are needed to exchange money.

CodeBuns
CodeBuns

don't be a retard government control the internet easily. they can outlaw any protocol they want especially a childs play if it's open. once bitcoin protocol is hindered (along with tor) the internet virtually breaks up for bitcoin clients and that means multiple competing ledgers and it all goes to shit.

not saying this would happen but it easily can all a matter of legislation.

it has been proven that governments can force isp-s to do crazy filtering shit if they want to.

of course there are countermeasures but again it requires a consensus to change protocol and countermeasures come faster than changes in bitcoin protocol (which is awfully slow to be honest).

to no bitcoin is not safe from governments that want it gone but i think most see it as a useful thing to hide/carry their own black founding ops deniably and freely and conveniently. so they find bitcoin to be useful just as tor is useful for field agents.

there's going to be a lot of pump and dump in the next 4 months, but the real super-pump will come in october. the closer we are to the election, the higher the price goes.
just before election day, you will see a lot of panic'd dumping.
When trump becomes POTUS, the price goes FTL, and dumpers will cry like babies, while we wonder how many bitcoins a trumpcoin will give us and whether veneno is a good car to buy or whether buying an island in today's unpredictable climate is a good decision?

when the coin starts truly being marketed toward normies $1m is not farfetched amount of money that will be brought in over a small period. Currently if you wanted to invest like 5k into this slowly over a week+ you'd alone push the price to double what it is now.

At this point in time there hasn't even been made an attempt to bring in money from outside the crypto community and in general the crypto community hates D. Trump. Buying trump now is by far the best investment you could ever make as it's so underpriced it's insane

look there is a finite amount of money in crypto. Not everything can be successful. Eth would've rolled over and died if Microsoft didn't back them back in desember. Because of that backing eth ended up making people rich.

A success needs a certain amount of luck and a certain amount of skill. Lisk/DAO/risk has a following because people are jumping from ico to ico looking to cash in on launch $$ and the new eth. The amount of real belief that they will be successful long term is way smaller than you might think. Even eth would've died without back in desember without luck, lisk/risk is not better than eth. The money will dissapear to new ico's, development will hit problems and the price will fall. Then they need a miracle to stay afloat.

Stay away from those, they are most likely bad in the long term. Waves is the most likely to be the new eth, in my eyes it's gonna be top 3 market cap in cryptos within 16 months. Still that said, even waves can roll over and die, nothing is for sure. Problems can arise and people can lose faith.

Sasha has actually come out and said they'll use development funds to put up a buy wall at launch. I am much more uncertain about the dip now than I was when i made that post. If you believe in waves you could buy now without a problem, I see a skyrocket launch as impossible for the coin though so you're not losing anything by waiting either.

If you really want to help raise prise put in buy orders. If you get some buy orders at say 3900 someone puts put a buy order at 4K to beat you. As this repeats you build a "dump wall" that keeps FUD and shills from dumping the prices. At one point you COULD NOT GET trumpcoins to go below 5k sat. Like someone tried selling 4k trump but the 5200 price held, until eventually some Hill-bot or LSK shill dumped 10k of coins at half price to destroy the buy wall. So yeah. Build a wall!

Lunatick
Lunatick

Well not just that but by keeping the price low you can stock up on more, sell more on the way up, and have more to sell at top. Higher margins, and less risk. (not afraid to sell to cover initial cost)

Bitcoin seems to be going up lately why ?

The halving happens in early July. People are buying in for the hype gains and as the halving approaches they'll start to dump hard. Nobody believes in BTC longterm, so it'll probably drop to about $200 by the end of the year.

Look for ETH to take a lot of that money coming out of BTC. ETH will be $75 by year's end.

Chinese are motivated to liquidate RMB-based assets, and they're not "allowed" to exchange more than ~$50k USD per year out of RMB; they can buy BTC more easily than they can exchange currencies, and as a result, you're seeing BTC used as a money laundering/currency extradition method for middle-class and wealthy Chinese.

hairygrape
hairygrape

if you realize those gains through a traditional taxable method (i.e. you cash out your BTC gains for USD and transfer those gains from your exchange account into a bank account), then you'd probably be in trouble if you got audited and didn't report it.

If you cash out those gains through some other method (localbitcoins, etc.), there's no paper trail, and as a result, nothing to worry about from a financial tracking perspective (unless your wallet account is somehow linked to your legal personhood).

ETH market cap ~1.1b
BTC market cap ~6.4b
1 ETH = 13.68 USD
1 BTC = 538.68 USD
if the number of ETH remained the same, their market value could only go up 5.81 * before their market cap matched that of current BTC which I doubt will happen in the 16 months unless BTC rolled over. That doesn't even account for new ETH coins entering the market

Is it still worthwhile to mine Ethereum?

I'm thinking about having some savings that isn't USD or sitting in a bank somewhere. I don't know about buying gold or silver, that could get stolen. Are cryptocurrencies a good backup or savings option? I was looking at cryptopay and it seemed alright, but I know very little about this stuff. I can understand the technology behind it but the economic workings are just way out of my league

cloud mining
i've been googling about it, there's a lot of people out on the internet who are claiming that cloud mining is a scam and you'll never break even let alone earn profit.

Garbage Can Lid
Garbage Can Lid

it might be a scam, but have people actually been scammed yet? where are the people who have lost money, and are the people who took that money running cloud mining companies.

right now there's no proof that it is a scam, and there's not a mass of people showing that they have had a profitable return.

i have some money in cloud mining and have had transfers to my btc wallet on schedule. i'm still about 60 days from breaking even, but it is on schedule.

the naysayers might be correct at the end of the day, but right now there's little evidence that the popular cloud miners are not legit.

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Well, i don't know, i haven't invested any money in cloud mining yet. Of course i'm interested, just a bit skeptical.

The thing i heard [read on the internet] was that the fee increases before ROI and thus you never really make as much as you should have. And you know, if i don't even make as much as i could have made in a savings account, then what's the point really?

It used to be ok till they discovered the flaw in the system, at the time bitcoin was worth over 1k usd and that was also the time when mt. gox was at its peak activity, if it weren't for mt. gox I think bitcoin would not have expanded so much, after they closed the site coincidentally bitcoin started losing value.

it was just that the masses realized that if you don't have the bitcoins in your own full client wallet then you don't have them period. and without exchange sites and stuff like that where trust is ironically a key factor bitcoin has very little practical value.
it was a good lesson learned. i think we will see stuff like that again if the price goes up.
exchanges are at the best position to steal your shit and they are often enough not even real financial corporations let alone banks. they are unregulated and completely unsupervised.
go trust that and get burned kek.

Whiles on the subject let me tell you which cryptos you should/shouldn't invest in.

rubies, trump, doge are like the chad footballers at school who were inane one trick ponies. If a leg broke then their footballing career would end and because they had no meaningful education they had to resort to coaching jobs, and depending on how well they do at coaching they can still earn some personal value

Eth, Lisk, Factom, Sia and Rise are like the nerds who went on to learn HTML, Java, C++, etc. and used that knowledge to make programs that help solve real world problems

One would do ok in the short term and one has potential to break banks.

I've got 10% of my port in BTC, and all that in hashocean right now. Didn't mean to say you should put you kid's college funds into a sketchy site, but this is probably the best and most stable way to generate revenue from BTC besides riding the trend of pumping and dumping tech-heavy ICO's.

Trading between eth/btc seems like a waste of time and energy when it's mostly speculation, and shitcoins almost never rise beyond their initial sell-off.

I've got 10% of my port in BTC
that's hardcore man i constantly feel i'm missing big on this train but the btc price is not as stable as i would like.
i think at higher price the services have a way higher incentive to grab the money and just run with it.
so i really really don't like btc going up in price in conjunction with hashocean exchanges and other sites like that.
if price remains stable in the 400-500 range i might dare to dip more in than my toes.

Raving_Cute
Raving_Cute

I understand, but the halvening will cause a big dip and volatility, and hashocean has no incentive to cut and run till we see sky-high btc prices.

They also have all the physical locations of their servers on their website, have a phone number linked to them, and have extremely big investors. They have more to lose than their clientele at this point.

To each his own, but you gotta realize that it's not going to stabilize in a very, very long time, most likely after eth/another shitcoin takes over it.

Well it's retarded until you realize people have been doing this and getting over 1% a day on their BTC for a long time. So if I hold this a year, I'm getting ridiculously good gains without wasting any time or mental energy on keeping up with the latest trends so I can focus on other things. I'm only doing this because of its history.

I think it's better than the eth/btc trading but please, post your average gains in a day/week month. Maybe I'm ignorant.

I'm probably going to be doing that with the BTC I've cloud-mined, I'm saving up for buying the dip right now actually.

No single graphics card makes 1800 MH/s. The AMD 390x only puts out like 28 MH/s, and that's arguably the single best card for mining, on a cost efficiency basis. Your card is probably capable of 18 MH/s, if it's a decent mid-range gaming graphics card for a desktop. If you're talking about a laptop, you're probably capable of 1.8 MH/s.

Flameblow
Flameblow

That's a good idea but I'll probably do that when I have buying power after the halvening. There's no way they could tell besides you using the same IP, but they won't check that.

Shorting is too risky for me personally. I'm going to be selling off my BTC as it rises in the next month and a half. Then I'll buy back in with a lot more money if it dips, if it doesn't I'll just put that money in stocks. If BTC soars because of the halvening, then the hashocean account will become way more valuable.

You sound a little paranoid but that's ok, we obviously have different assessments of risk.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

you don't give private keys to anyone you give away your coins and you are prepared to say goodbye to them. then you get some back as times goes on and when they arrive to your wallet safely they are all yours. after 3 months it's all yours again. only risk remains is losing the free income stream.
well yeah, you risk something either way as usual with choices.

StonedTime
StonedTime

you don't give private keys to anyone you give away your coins

That's giving your private keys to someone.
There are no coins, only keys, but let's call them coins for normie's sake.

Anyway, 3 months is a long time. Giving away all of your coins for 3 months in hopes of getting them back and start making ROI after those 3 months is simply insane.

CouchChiller
CouchChiller

If BTC soars because of the halvening, then the hashocean account will become way more valuable.
But guess what, the chances of hashocean running away with your money also increase.

Not controlling your Bitcoins is not paranoia, it's common sense. All those sites are an huge gamble.

PurpleCharger
PurpleCharger

no you are not giving away your keys where did you get this madness?
you send them the coins it gets accounted to their address in the bitcoin ledger you sign the transaction with your private key and it can be validated with your public key.

for fucks sake...
Giving away all of your coins for 3 months in hopes of getting them back and start making ROI after those 3 months is simply insane.
not all just what you are prepared to lose. you have to try to put a percentage on if you believe a sit that has been running since 2012 without a hitch and pay like clockwork will fold in the next 3 month or not. if you say more likely not then you are insane not to bet on it some. if you say it will surely fold then you would be a fool to send them anything.

i honestly can't tell there is a risk but i can't put a percentage on it. probably way less than 50%.

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

I have never used hashocean, I just assume you send the coins to them and the store the coins. This is not controlling those coin's private keys.

It's a ponzi, it will eventually go wrong even if it has been going good since 2012. I value my coins too much I guess.

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

i don't get it you are using the terminology all fucked up. yes you don't control the coins if you don't control the private keys (which means they are not in your wallet) that's pretty goddamn obvious imo.

It's a ponzi, it will eventually go wrong
most likely on both accounts, but... will it go wrong in 6 months? because if not you can double your btc you bet on it. hence my dilemma. i think they will eventually close shop but when i don't know.

the halvening worries me if they are in business after the bitcoin gets yanked up and down i might invest some more. my roi is near for now i wait.

Holy shit, you really don't understand the concept of cryptocurrency. Here's how HashOcean works:

1) You send them BTC to purchase cards to hash on your behalf.

2) They implement hashing power on your behalf, and use your initial investment to pay for their data centers, etc.

3) You get the proceeds from the hashing power you were promised. If you paid $2,000 for ~9,000 KH/s, you would get the equivalent bitcoin for ~9,000 KH/s (currently, that hashing power is equivalent to ~2 BTC/month). HashOcean provides you with your hashing power rewards on a daily basis.

4) You have the option of either reinvesting that BTC (hashing reward) into more hashing power, or cashing that BTC out to your personal wallet.

5) Once you have the BTC back in your personal wallet, you can spend it on whatever you want.

At no point does HashOcean need your private key for your personal wallet; they set up a holding account/wallet for you on the site, and theoretically you would set up an automatic transfer from that holding wallet to your personal wallet on an incremental basis (probably daily), assuming you want to cash out and don't intend to reinvest that hashing power.

You never give anyone your private key for your personal wallet. It's not necessarily; HashOcean can send you money without knowing your private key. You can send HashOcean money without them knowing your private key. The only private key HashOcean has that is "yours" is the holding account they keep your daily BTC payout in.

i'm not saying you are stupid i'm saying you overplay the risk which is significant of course. especially when bitcoin goes up. when it's stable there is no more incentive for them to close shop, but really to assess risk you would need to look at the trends how their userbase and "hashpower" grow because it gives you an idea how much btc is flowing in and how much is flowing out daily.

eth maybe has a future but it's a decade till it matures at least and some other coin can pass it up with more powerful backing and hype bitcoin can easily catch it's wind from the sails if the devs start deving or something.
the rest of the coins are almost all memes some tries to solve a real problem like sharing resources but they won't take off imo.
