When the USDT peg to BTC is broken, watch out below:


USDT, or Tether, the other side of BTC - the dark stablecoin no one talks about....but should:

Alert - Why is Grayscale still holding XRP - rut roh...


Everyone knows about the coming delistings/non tradeable XRP right?

@Existential Accountant That XRP Trust is a fund investors buy into, isn't it? Don't blame Grayscale if its XRP Trust investors are too out of lunch not to sell their units.

@Bobstert 'out to lunch' that is :)

IDK, I don't get why anyone would hold crypto in Grayscale or any similar wall street legacy vehicle anyway.

Argo Blockchain looks cheap
Mara has 3 employees.

Riot has 6 employees

Are they correct?

regardless your thoughts on bitcoin, when blackrock decides to throw their weight behind crypto it's definitely bullish.
@Unconventional Wisdom Is looking for a VP of Blockchain “throwing their weight behind Crypto” ? Just wondering.

For Riot’s part, its website was down from early Monday through 1 pm Eastern...

Yeh — that’s a billion plus dollar market cap company fer’ sure...

This is a repeat of late 2017 — with a crash coming in the New Year... just like 2018.

Silly... silly... Robinhooders... sheesh.

Looks really juicy as a short, can hardly wait.
@ThreeDayCondor this is drastically different from 2017 as many ETFs have joined to invest in Bitcoins, and wider adoptions have occurred, and Democrats are more receptive of blockchain technologies.

@Etrff: we shall see. If the theory is institutions will help BTC avoid a sell off in early 2021, you should read up on the practice of fund “window dressings” — at quarter, and especially, year-ends.

Good luck!

My company is looking for a VP of magic beans.

Please send your CV’s to ihaveimaginarymoneytosellyou@idiotsucker.com
@Panther Fund If you seriously think this way, you'll be shorting BTC I assume... ? Thought not.....
Panther Fund profile picture
@Scepisle hell no. I just think it’s equivalent to magic beans.

This is just opinion, that’s it.

Not buying it, not shorting it.

@Panther Fund yet such a valuable contribution to the subject, thank you so much for giving us the input and effort....just my opinion
Naysayers say Bitcoin will go to zero, may be they are the same experts said about

TSLA before. I do not know that much abut Bitcoin or I have not seen one yet, but I know how to follow the guys know a lot of Bitcoin, so I follow them and make so money.

Look at BFCH, new bitcoin mining facility opening up soon in USA. Stock is cheep now...

@viperultimaevolution yes a whole 3 cents
@viperultimaevolution Problem is, is seems to have been 'opening soon' for a long time.
@davidbwade they are slow, but doing all the right steps like removing shares, building things themselves, I respect that. I am a long term share holder and can wait. I liked the price action today.
70K miners ,not 70
