One of Vanguard's economist "argued that bitcoin should not be classified as money, because although it could qualify as a unit of account and medium of exchange it is not an effective store of value." Money such as dollars are not a good store of value like gold ($GLD). $1 always is $1 like 1 bitcoin always is 1 bitcoin, but money like the dollar lose value over time due to inflation. Thus, it is not a good store of value. Buy $GBTC and miners $MGTI, $HVBTF, $BTSC, and $BTCS on the pullback. http://bit.ly/2s5shJM

    Lots of shuffling. I just sold 4/5 of my remaining shares of $TWMJF at $23.29/share. W%R is -23 (almost borderline overbought). I then used some of the money and bought a few more thousand shares of $BTSC at $0.095/share with the intention of selling at $0.15. W%R is -96 (very oversold). Then with the remaining money, I also bought 50 more shares of $GBTC at $14.61/share with the intention of selling those 50 shares at $16-$17. W%R is -79 (borderline oversold).

    I have a feeling $TWMJF knows we will likely have a glut next year where small players will go bankrupt. $TWMJF will then use cash to buy them on the cheap.
    Looks like bitcoin broke out of its falling wedge pattern with a target of $9,400. Type in $NYXBT in http://bit.ly/duZ1er . Upper bollinger band is $9,700. Price bounced off lower bollinger band of $8,100. W%R is -100 (extremely oversold). Buy $GBTC and miners $MGTI, $HVBTF, $BTSC, and $BTCS.

    Thomas Lee: "During the last Consensus conference, the bitcoin price rose by 69% and then 138% in the two months afterward." This year's Consensus conference was from May 14-16. Key is two months afterward. So maybe bitcoin will see a big rally in the next two months. Keynote's World Blockchain Forum is June 11-13.

    "Bitcoin is not anonymous, of course, though this is a common misconception propagated by critics." Cryptocurrencies and bitcoin change really fast, with multiple upgrades (forks) and attachments (smart contracts, Lightning Network, etc). Stay updated and stop spreading "fake news."

    One use for bitcoin's borderless nature: international loan payments. "Traditional money transfers are relatively costly due to currency exchange fees, and can take up to a few days...With Bitbond, payments work independently of where customers are.

    Bitcoin (BTC) formed an inverse head and shoulders pattern. "A close above the inverse head-and-shoulders neckline resistance seen today at $9,980, would open the doors to $13,475."

    Just sold 2/7 of my remaining shares of $TWMJF, which I think is near a temporary peak W%R of -21 (borderline overbought), and bought some more $GBTC, taking advantage of the pullback in bitcoin possibly cause by bashing from Buffett, Munger, and Gates. I thought of buying more $BTSC instead, but I already bought a lot of those shares last week. And $GBTC is less volatile than $BTSC, which did pop 86% in one day twice in the last month.

    Goldman ($GS) "had received inquiries from hedge funds, as well as endowments and foundations that received virtual currency donations from newly minted Bitcoin millionaires and didn't know how to handle them.

    Just bought more $BTSC at $0.135/share using the money I got from selling about 1/5 of my $TWMJF shares. This 11/13/17 SA article https://seekingalpha.com/a/2gefy is helpful.

    This video about bitcoin (BTC) "flashing a rare buy signal" is two days old. He says bitcoin has been rising about 155% each year for 8 years and has a beta of 0.2. 155% of $8,000 is $20,400.

    "Brits Want Regulated Cryptos, Not Centralized Coins." The idea of a centralized crypto, especially one issued by a central bank, makes no sense.

    I think bitcoin will reach at least $74,000-91,000 in a few years and might even hit $160,000 sometime about 2025. So the $18,000 peak in May may or may not lead to a fall to $12,000 by June. I will likely sell some to take advantage of the fall, but I will keep enough to sell most at $74,000-91,000. I don't intend to sell all my $GBTC just in case it does surge to $1 million like some fanatics think.
