NFT: Bitcoin - what is happening?

ij_reilly : 12/7/2017 11:27 am
Over $18,000 now.

This is insane.

I'm holding 1.5 Bitcoin, I guess I keep holding.

It went for 7.5K to 20K in a week. Now it drops to 13K and the bubble is popping?

I'll just keep picking up cheap coins during this Christmas sale..



Yup picked up a few dips today and my portfolio is already surging again and in the green. Not sure if you buy a lot of alts but NEO, ADA, XVG, LINK, LEND, ICX, NXT and TRX are a couple I like



Love Alts, moreso than BTC actually, but Iím only invested in 4 coins right now. I tend to try and find projects and teams that I really like and hammer them hard. NEO is fantastic and todayís dip was a Christmas miracle.



Thatís what Iím trying to do, narrow it down to my top 10 and ride those out pumping in more at dips. What are your big 4?



My two favorites are Litecoin and Neo. I expect a big 2018 for both.

Longer term holds are Siacoin and Quantstamp. Very early on for these two but digital storage and security will always be a thing.

Eventually I want to get involved in a few more, but I canít justify buying anything else while Neo is this cheap. They have 18 ICOís planned for the platform in 2018 and their team and roadmap is really great. Yet itís only 1/8th of Ethereumís price.


Yeah NEO is in my top 5 along with LTC and XRP. Been hearing a ton about SC, will look into it more. Itís uo 90% today, damn. The whole market is having itself quite a day.
Wish I bought BTC yesterday at 11,800  
DennyInDenville : 12/23/2017 12:31 pm : link
Oh well, doubt it ever dips that low again..

Ended up just getting another .25 LTC while it dipped to $197


I might start day trading this shit for BANK, but I don't think I have the stomach for such volatility
That was one hell of a ride Yesterday.  
sb2003 : 12/23/2017 1:49 pm : link
I bailed on some of mine when things were coming down and bought in a little bit going back up. I would have been better off just leaving things as is. The people that saw that as a buying opportunity were dead on.

Really need to have brass balls at times in the crytpo market.

In any event I'm going to hold less LTC and put my cash that's been sitting on the side into other altcoins.

Wow what a day for XRP and Alts!  
BigBlue4You09 : 12/28/2017 10:24 pm : link
Thank you Lend!
I am getting killed on FunFair and BurstCoin  
Jim in Scranton : 12/28/2017 11:11 pm : link
I am going to sell them soon and just take the losses. I am still sticking with Siacoin, but once it goes up a little bit, I am going to sell half. Fucking XRP is killing it for me at the moment. I am going to buy some more when it dips a little bit.
At the end of the day Ripple (XRP) is one of the few  
widmerseyebrow : 12/29/2017 12:41 am : link
that has an actual valuable use, the ability to scale, and a team of professionals behind the wheel. Not in theory, right now. In fact it may be the only one.
Yeah funfair sounds like a shit coin, lol  
DennyInDenville : 12/29/2017 1:12 am : link
Ripple is legit..

Could be $30 one day
Pretty annoying that you canít just buy Ripple with cash

You can on Kraken (and others too I believe). If you bought ETH or BTC on Coinbase you can send it to changelly or shapeshift to get Ripple almost instantly.
interesting  
UConn4523 : 12/29/2017 10:19 am : link
the fees look pretty high there especially wire transfers so I'll probably just go the route of exchanging bitcoin for it.
Thoughts on XVG and/or TRX?  
bigbluehoya : 12/29/2017 10:47 am : link
I got in XRP around $1.01 equivalent. Only regret is that I didnít do more.

Looking to expand my altcoin exposure on some high upside stuff that hasnít quite had its pop yet. Smaller rolls of the dice.

Thereís so much being written about crypto at this point, itís hard to separate wheat from chaff and know what to read and what to discard entirely.
What XRP wallet do you use?  
UConn4523 : 12/29/2017 10:51 am : link
Iím assuming I need that set up before I exchange bitcoins for XRP?

If you're going through Changelly or Shapeshift, yes. You need that return address since those services don't hold your coins, only exchange them.

I personally use a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet to keep my coins offline.

Rippex is a desktop wallet you can use for now. Always send a little bit first just to make yourself familiar with the wallet and the "instant exchange" process.

I've been following XVG as a purely speculative privacy coin play. Invested a tiny bit. After researching more deeply I'm thinking these are the possible outcomes:

1. It's the biggest crypto scam of 2017. Vaporware. (60%)
2. Their end of year tech reveal will be underwhelming under the hood (cobbled together open source) but will technically work. (35%)
3. Their tech reveal will be everything they've promised/hinted at (5%)

The truth will be known by December 31st. Ironically the more they talk/tweet, the less confident I become, but I don't have much to lose so I can afford to hope for a short term pump (2 & 3).
I just had to pay a 3K brokers fee for an apt  
Rover : 12/29/2017 11:36 am : link
So I'd love to make some of that back with a quickee in bitcoin or something similar.

Was trying to wait until bitcoin goes down to 11K before buying 1K worth then selling when it gets to 15K; rinse and repeat 3x.

Kraken takes forever to get verified on and is constantly crashing. Definitely easier to just buy BTC, LTC or ETH on Coinbase and use Changelly or an Exchange like Bittrex or Binance to transfer and purchase.

I'm convinced XVG is a scam too, sold all mine. So many mixed messages about Wraith protocol and their team is not very transparent at all.

Have you heard anything about Evercoin?
There's also a new exchange opening called SC Exchange  
Giants in 07 : 12/29/2017 1:27 pm : link
I believe its based in Germany. Starting Dec 31, you'll be able to purchase the following with a credit card.

Beware, I'd imagine the fees will be high though.

Bitcoin
Ethereum
Litecoin
Bitcoin Cash
Monero
Ripple
DASH
OmiseGO
IOTA
Stratis
Bitcoin Gold
Ark
district0x
FunFair
RaiBlocks

Also to the guy who wants to sell his funfair...I'd wait until this exchange opens.
Sorry, it's based in Dublin. Not Germany

Here's their twitter.

the fees on CC purchases are nuts  
UConn4523 : 12/29/2017 1:33 pm : link
its basically 3.5% on Coinbase as opposed to 1% for a checking account payment (the downside is it take a week). Unless you are rapidly buying and selling I can't see why anyone would pay with a credit card.
Yeah, I agree.  
Giants in 07 : 12/29/2017 1:44 pm : link
But for some of those coins, this is the only way to buy with fiat.

On another note, should be a good weekend as more money re-enters the market. I expect the big guns to get a boost and this alt run to continue! I'm loving the way NEO's chart looks.
From what I saw and heard, I thought BurstCoin  
Jim in Scranton : 12/29/2017 1:58 pm : link
was a scam. I just sold it all off, with a $30 hit. I wasn't waiting much longer. FunFair is up over 12% today and I might sit a little longer on that. I also unloaded half of Siacoin today and I am just going to HODL the rest. I am still waiting for the correction for XRP.
It's funny you mentioned Sia and XRP in the same sentence  
Giants in 07 : 12/29/2017 2:10 pm : link
I've read some say that they could envision a "ripple-like" pattern of growth for Sia in the upcoming year

It took me 3 weeks to finally get Tier 3 verified on Kraken. I don't know if I am going to use it, since I really do not know much about Wire transactions. I mainly use Bittrex and Binance, but I just moved the majority to Binance.

I like it, plus they have a very healthy Reddit community. A lot of serious posters with good advise. That might sound stupid though. I might invest if it dips again, but I am done for now.

Man I hope so, the market dominance of Bitcoin decreases daily so weíre on the right track.

I know I must seem like a NEO shill by now, but it was added to Shapeshift today! Thatís now the easiest way to get it with fiat. Still I prefer Binance but just an FYI

Wow good to know thanks. NEO is in my top 5 for next year. Although it could easily be a top 10 I love NEO, ADA, LINK, LEND, ICX, ZRX, RDN and am dumping a ton into WEN when itís listed.
