1/ The gap between the "rich" and the 'non-rich' has nothing to do with taxes and everything to do with monetary policy. This is critical to understand, especially with presidential candidates calling for socialist policies in the U.S.
2/ In the past 10 yrs the Fed has flooded the market with dollars. The amount of US dollars in circulation has doubled in the past decade. DOUBLED.
3/ The idea is to spur economic activity and, yes, banks loan some money to businesses that invest in growth, job creation, etc

But there is limited supply of good businesses needing loans. Much of the money ends up invested in asset classes like real estate, equities, PE/VC etc

$BTC Daily - Pretty straight forward. This is a textbook area to long as a swing trader. People wait patiently for this opportunity. You enter the long, with proper R:R on the trade; adhere to the stop-loss. That simple. This is as solid an entry spot for longing as possible #btc
$BTC Support level currently at still looks fantastic for a swing long. We look for clues to give our bias. Bias here clearly favors long. Set a tight stop loss of a close below 7700 & play the math game here. R:R is your friend. #btc #bullishSwingPlay
People are freaking right now. But remember; anything to and above 7700 is just fine for now. Keep calm and let the numbers be your emotional control.

1/ I am studying #Decred in the context of #Bitcoin in the early days.

I aim to assess the following:
- Compare $DCR and $BTC supply characteristics
- Performance of #DCR compared to young #BTC
- Decred unforgeable costliness
- Mathematical rigor for $DCR S2F model

Prelim ideas
2/ #Decred launched in Aug 2016 (~ BTC block 33600).

Given similar supply curve, I have offset $DCR performance by 33,600 BTC blocks and plotted as if #Decred launched side by side with #Bitcoin.

Unsurprisingly, #Decred behaves much like a 'smooth' #Bitcoin without halvings.
3/ Plan B established the invaluable and statistically valid S2F model for $BTC.

Key difference between scarcity of $DCR and $BTC is #Bitcoin immaculate conception, time alive (network effect) and block reward distribution.

21Million, predefined schedule and S2F path are equal.

1/3 #GigFair is an exciting new platform launching in 2019 that will allow anyone in the world to work in the global digital economy.
#electroneum #etn #blockchain #fintech #crypto #cryptocurrency #Criptomonedas #massiveadoption #bitcoin #btc #tothemoon #hold
2/3 "Gigs" are items of digital work, carried out remotely. The current global digital economy is estimated to be over $4 trillion US dollars per year, yet the current global gig economy is staffed almost entirely by individuals who have a bank account.
3/3 The concept is simple. By allowing customers to buy "gigs" with their credit cards in USD it makes it easy to buy work. These funds are cleverly converted into ETN (a mobile cryptocurrency called Electroneum) and transferred to the worker carrying out the "Gig".

1/Acc. to @DoveyWan, who has a good prior track record of CT #China insights, and @PandaofBinance the recent #BTC dump could be attributed to a Chinese Ponzi scheme #PlusToken selling tens of 000s of BTC:

2/The list of addresses mentioned in the story(total ~276k BTC received,last txs>0.01 BTC):
A (last tx 31-07-2019)…
B (last tx 26-05-2019)…
C (last tx 13-08-2019)…
D (last tx 04-04-2019)…
3/According to data by @CrystalPlatform wallet A belongs to @BixinIM bitcoin hosted wallet provider. It has been created 4 years ago, which is much longer than PlusToken exists.

Alright let's get this through.
My key takeaways from the latest @OwnMarket AMA, and why they make me more bullish than before.

18 tweets so stay focused. 😉

Let's go:

$CHX #STO #securitytokens #Blockchain #Crypto #Bitcoin #Exchanges #gaming #mobilegames #ETH #investing
Let's start with the big one. The first STO (project Crowd) is now confirmed to launch its raise in September, this will be accompanied with a huge marketing campaign.
Remember for every #STO, $CHX gets locked away depending on the total raise.
1 month to go 😎
OWN now has officially signed a cooperation with Raiffeisen Bank who will support them in the STO space and also with their upcoming Stock exchange.
This is an impressive bank with over 2 million customers which has received several "best bank" Awards. #banking #crypto $CHX

The open-source ball is rolling again!

@braiins just unveiled their new plans for a complete and fully transparent #BTC mining stack upgrade, featuring a fully transparent mining stack, including mining software and a new mining protocol — Stratum V2.
@braiins 2/ Mining has always been difficult for me to understand but when @fluffypony, @WhalePanda, @SatoshiLite & @Excellion threw me into moderating the mining panel at #MCC, I started researching like a maniac… and got hooked
@braiins @fluffypony @WhalePanda @SatoshiLite @Excellion 3/ Albeit, I was already pretty hooked & dead set on getting my miner up and running about @janbraiins' demo in Malta at @ToneVays & @Blockstream @UnderstandBit
but was still a complete noob (still am, but trying)

@c_ehrbar Laugh all you want, I look at every timeframe on everything that I'm concerned with. I chose the 1H timeframe here, and even the 3m too on a facebook post, to serve as a "before" image if/when it plays out as quickly as expected. Then I can make something like this yet again.
@c_ehrbar An example of higher timeframe context that I've been providing... Notice how nicely it bounced from the .886 retracement 125 days after I posted it.…

#StockMarket $DJI $NDX $SPX $SPY
@c_ehrbar I use that along with my analysis on #bitcoin itself, the individual indices, my "sum of that american indices divided by the price of gold" private chart, and several others to be almost certain of my medium-term scenario playing out, just as I was about #bitcoin goin up from 3k

A @chainalysis employee goes rogue, AMA on @RedditBTC, Deletes it

Few takes:
-run your own server, ALWAYS USE TOR/VPN
-Chainalysis runs @ElectrumWallet servers
-If you connect to a Chainalysis server they download+log your addresses
-Avoid mobile wallets
-Top 5 Flag reasons - Being stolen funds, dnm, mixer, terrorist financing, ransomware payout addresses
-With @coinjoin and @wasabiwallet company viability is very low.
-Probable ISP connections in EU
-US Gov and exchanges are the biggest clients
-Probably 100s caught by law enforcement using their tech
--most Exchanges don't share KYC, but UserIDs
-LN makes tracking difficult
- Sending #btc to yourself to try and mask things with hops doesn't really work, Ehm @aantonop

#BTC soran arkadaşlar: Böyle sayıyorum. Kısa vadede yükseliş muhtemelen sona ermek üzere. Ancak orta vadede (muhtemelen 6.500-7.000'e kadar) geri çekilip bir atak daha (muhtemelen 13.650) yapmasını beklerim. Bence [Y] düşüşü öncesinde [X] içinde. Bu pilav daha çok su kaldırır.
Çok nadir BTC yorumu yapıyorum, son yorumum şuydu:…

1/Last week's №1news was not the >10kBTC breakout or #Facebook's #Libra announcement, but release of the #FATF(Financial Action Task Force) Guidance on Virtual Assets(VAs) and Virtual Asset Service Providers(VASPs, anyone professionally dealing with crypto, inc. natural persons)
2/Libra and FATF news represent the "old", centralised world's most powerful-yet attempts at fencing the global crypto phenomenon. One year US Presidency in FATF ending Jun30, effectively helped extend the recent FinCen crypto guidance ( globally
3/And market clearly isn't yet pricing in any of the potential outcomes entailed in this development.We suggest monitoring it in the context of state-by-state implementations, which will end up harmonised - i.e. similar. Here's what we wrote to our Research subscribers in March

Will history repeat itself? The @TraceMayer Multiple indicated 4 major trend changes during the last two cycles: (1) Cycle low, (2) Correction #1, (3) Correction #2, (4) Cycle top. If history repeats, we might be close to Correction #1 at around $13k.

#BTC #Bitcoin

Thread 👇
1/ During the last two bull markets, 3 of the 4 major corrections came in exactly at 2.5x the 200 DMA. Assuming that the low is in at $3150 and we are in a bull market, a current 200 DMA of $5070, suggests Correction #1 to take place at around $12,7k. Considering that
2/ the 200 DMA keeps increasing on the way up to 2.5x, the more realistic target would probably be around $13k. What would be the retracement target? During the last bull run, Correction #1 and #2 both came in at around 40%. This would put the downside target at around $7.8k.

So historically, #BTC retests the ATH AFTER the halving event. This is interesting. If we get $20k before the halving it would lead me to believe the top comes sooner and the cycle will be shorter. Something to keep an eye on.

1/ 6 PREDICTIONS about what @Facebook's #cryptocurrency means. Grab the popcorn bc I analyzed publicly disclosed info to make 6 predictions, of which 2 will be controversial (#2 and #6). @ForbesCrypto #Libra #bitcoin…
2/ First prediction: @Facebook's #stablecoin will be a positive force in developing countries. Second: @Facebook will pay #interest to users of its #cryptocurrency, which will eventually lead to populist calls to repeal subsidies at the heart of the US banking system.
3/ It's true that #stablecoin issuers generally pocket the float on the assets backing the coins, but I go out on a limb & predict there's no way @Facebook will be able to pocket these big profits w/o sharing them with users. To be clear I haven't seen @Facebook disclose this.

$BTC vs $USD pairs

How to play?

BTC Up-Trend = Play USD Pairs

BTC Down Trend = Play BTC Pairs

BTC sideways = Play Both

BTC indecisive = Be selective & be prepared to jump either ways on short notice

This is relevant if #Bitcoin Dominance is high & rising up

Thread / 2
If #Bitcoin dominance is diminishing & on its way down, we can play:

$BTC Up-Trend = Up-Trending ALTs with stronger trends than BTC can offer higher profits in USD terms. You get the benefit from BTC up trend + ALTs uptrend

Thread / 3
If #Bitcoin dominance is diminishing

#BTC down trend = Play BTC paired ALTs with strong up-trends. This will help you to beat negative BTC returns & accumulate more #Bitcoins

#BTC sideways = Play whatever is trending

#BTC indecisive = Be prepared to jump either ways

Did #hyperwave fail? Is #BTC still in a Hyperwave? And why are we now buying when we said it was going to $1k?

Let us try to answer the great Qs that @LucidInvestment, @Sawcruhteez and I have received below, in a true Bitcoiner style... a tweet storm ⛈
2/ Hyperwave didn’t just call for a return to Phase 1 at $1,000, it called for a buy in the $3,200 neighborhood and a sell above $18k. While it appears that a bottom was found before reaching the final $1,000 target that does not imply that Hyperwave failed
3/ Following the rules led to drastically outperforming the markets ROI since 2017 and it protected investors from the downside that followed.

But is bitcoin still in a Hyperwave?
The BTC Hyperwave is still in effect until a new all time high is reached.

ALTs update

#USD paired ALTs are pumping, mostly thx to $BTC pump against #USD

$BTC paired ALTs continued to struggle but are showing bottoming process for last few days

Here is how to play ALTs:

Check the Thread /2
If you are into $BTC you may flip your #BTC position for ALTs for next few days if #Bitcoin struggles against key resistance & can’t post higher highs in next few days

Which ALTs to choose ?

2 setups

Trend Continuation
Trend Reversal

I prefer 1st one, let’s discuss both /3
Trend Continuation is relevant for those ALTs which are still trending up against $BTC

There aren’t many, but handful of them like #LTC #BNB are taking a breather against $BTC But May find a support & eventually pump again

What about Trend Reversal? /4

1/n Dear Bitcoiners. Next time someone tells you that the #XRP Ledger is more decentralised than #BTC, and you look at them dumbfounded, this is why. The fact this is even contemplated shows the issue. 3-4 mining pools control >51% of the authority
2/ if someone were able to persuade 3-4 key people that a re-org would be a good idea, then it could happen. In this case it is the damage to Binance’s (fine) reputation that would prevent them from doing it. But a malicious actor might not have that concern. With XRP there
3/ is literally no mechanism in the protocol to do a chain re-org. The concept of ‘longest chain wins’ just doesn’t exist on the XRP Ledger. Once a transaction is final (in a few seconds) that is it. It is final. If you wanted to introduce a change to the protocol to ‘unwind’

1/Given the recent news around #tether and #bitfinex, we wondered whether the more professional BTC investors would become more cautious - presumably inclined to take the @NewYorkStateAG action as no ordinary #FUD the retail crypto is so used to brushing off. Not really, it seems
2/In the wake of #Fidelity or #TDAmeritrade offering trading and storing of bitcoin, #CME futures is still the biggest market for US institutions to get exposure to #bitcoin price action.Commitment of Traders reports by #CFTC reflect trader positions by end of business on Tuesday
3/Reports come out every Friday to avoid market abuse. @krugermacro suggested using them as a proxy for institutional adoption, which was also referenced in the influential recent report by @tuurdemeester and @MLescrauwaet. We've also been tracking COT positions. Take a look

WHY @wavesplatform $WAVES should be on your radar and why I believe that it is one of the largest and the shiniest #gem on a #cryptomarket?

1) Huge amount of #BTC (30k?)from ICO which are big financial cushion for such a large company. Hardly anyone knows, but they also rised about 140 m USD from private company in Dec 2018.
Even if the bear market will stay 5 more years they have enough money to survive.

2) @sasha35625 is great leader. His marketing skills along with great #waves technology are one of the most important factors why i will be hodling $waves to the end of the world and one more day.

Here's a look at how @bitfinex is managing its #BTC internal liquidity on-chain

Source data from

1/ First comes the 17.2K BTC ($89M) withdrawal from the @bitfinex cold wallet (as also reported by @TheBlock__) which actually was transferred to a Bitfinex-controlled hot wallet.
2/ Next up was a smaller 4K BTC ($20M) transfer to another @bitfinex controlled wallet designated for customer withdrawals.

An interesting observation related to percentage share of having 1 Bitcoin with respect to Gold.

A thread:

#Bitcoin #BTC #Gold $BTC
Owning just 1 Bitcoin will give you 0.0000047619% share of the total supply. There will never be more than 21 million Bitcoins. So, your percentage of total supply will never change regardless the price of Bitcoin in USD.
Bitcoin is known as the digital gold. So, lets do a small comparison.

Total estimated gold in the world: 190,000 tonnes.

To have same share of gold in total gold supply of having 1 Bitcoin, you must have 9.04 Kilograms. That is 371,923$ in todays value.

@PeterRizun I use the software my self. I run c-lighting and spark wallet. It is hard to believe that you couldn't send 0.00019 btc. I sent money to Venezuela the other day and more than you are trying to send. And I am just a noob and you are chief scientist of a pre mined scam.
@PeterRizun And my node is a very basic node that I use to follow the development of this project that is still in alpha stage.
I rather verify to trust to others where I put my money or investment,
@PeterRizun @PeterRizun
I already replied twice to your tweets but you keep deleting them, since you mess with twitter logins and used a sockpuppet account.

If you are trying to be serious on a subject behave accordingly.
