July 20 was a moon day... Will it be also one for BTC ?

in #bitcoin4 years ago

I was not touching exact subject of proposed forks of BTC (other than mentioning 1st April UASF) but it looks like today we may have SegWit signaling already locked.

Currently 81,1% of network is signaling the lock in and if this happens - BTC will be able to scale with transaction demands and other useful things like side-chains.

Litecoin was first to succed the lockin and price went high. Coblee predicts the same for BTC now.

Okay so moon for BTC but why 20th is a moon day?

July 20, 1969: One Giant Leap For Mankind.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent just under a day on the lunar surface before rendezvousing with Columbia in lunar orbit.

Now time for BTC to land on Moon finally!

Segwit got locked.

BIP 91 activation is scheduled to take place in: 350 Blocks

Miners have until this time to upgrade their nodes. Blocks not signalling BIP 141 (bit 1) will be rejected after activation.

Good news! Now things will start to rock!

bitcoin back up to 2770.91. Maybe steem can follow suit.

Steem is on the rise again!
Let it go slow and steady.

every thing is rising now it is the right time to get in it will be rocket in comng days steem is gng very goood with bright future :)

Absolute great cryptos time ahead!

yess after august i will be rocket and it just the beginning of crypto

Beyond the imagination of many...

bitcoin Down to 2472.51 USD. Time to buy/trade?

Yesss. I am so happy to b alove finally.

These red pills work Morpheous

Great news! Lets hope it lands safely :)

I'm surprised to see the bounce happen so quickly.

Hey there... have a read of my Bitcoin poem... let me know what you think :) people have said it brought tears to their eyes.


Btc will be doing to the moon n then jupiter n then Pluto eventually

SegWit is awesome!

Such a fun coincidence @kingscrown! How did you come up with this correlation!
Seriously cool!

I also found out that on June 20th, 1976, we had the 1st Mars Landing!

1976 US Viking 1 lands on Mars at Chryse Planitia, 1st Martian landing

 First Martian Landing - June 20, 1976

Can't wait to see how it voes really. Im kinda sorry I pulled out all my btc thought. Hoping steem will blast odf to the moon too. Thanks for sharing this article it's really informative:)

I'm thinking bitcoin will be ranging at this price.. for several months

Put all my BTC into LTC. I Need LTC to blast off soon or my BTC will soon be unobtainable for us small fish.

When did you put your money in to LTC? the most recent rally SEEMED in response to possible bitcoin problems, but if Lightning network comes to LTC you'll likely see another rally.

In the long run both BTC and STEEM are headed there, you did nothing wrong.

I only get to see your post right now (hard and long day at work), but wow, it sure was a "moon day" for bitcoin! I'm wondering, can it pass 3000 USD tonight? It almost feels like I wanna to stay awake to keep on watching those price charts... It's incredible! Like I use to say, never invest when a coin is skyrocketing but in this case, for the long term holders, I would say: buy! You could miss a big opportunity! And if I'm wrong for now (knock on wood), and you are a long term holder, just hold on, it will reach much higher heights, that's for sure!

upvoted and follow.... if you want support me too mate as i am new here but i am a good photographer have a look at my travel post, thank you https://steemit.com/travel/@bllackwidow/sakis-my-trip-to-iceland

Wow, amazing.
Your post makes me very passionate.
I've been looking forward to this golden opportunity.
Because I am one of the players in bitcoin world.
Information from you makes me very excited.
Thank you very much i say to you.
I will wait for more recent information from you.

Im still a little bit appalled that an on-chain scalling solution was not achieved , and the block size was not increased

Right now the problem is solved and looks like an agreement was reached , but im worried we will have issues in the future as definite solution to full blocks was not reached

So right now , i don think is a opportunity to invest on btc, but im being cautiosly optimistic , and instead of just holding btc long term , im actively watching the price and trading back and forth to fiat or other crypto

Anyone else here who doesent feel quite Ok with just holding the btc?

Big block Fork has a LOT more support than you can tell with all the Segwit propaganda being spread by the banksters: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@ancap47/strong-economic-preference-for-bitcoin-hard-fork-to-bigger-blocks

Well thats pretty good news , yeah , looks like they are manipulating things to make it seem more popular than it really is

Sort of like registering multiple accounts on minnowsupport to scam the system. Stop it

Please stop trying to register multiple accounts on minnow support. It's having me do more work than I like.

It makes me happy not to see the 2x part. Misinformation is rampant.

Very encouraged by the rally. I still expect to see bigger blocks in the future but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

My prediction? Segwit bitcoins will only be held by bankers and speculators while real users fork to Big Block Chain.

Money talks, BS walks: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@ancap47/strong-economic-preference-for-bitcoin-hard-fork-to-bigger-blocks

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah... we'll see ;)

You'd prefer a segwit coin?

As much as you prefer china coin :)

big block = chinese?

I hope you get a check for this kind of trolling.

I hope that you will read about block propagation speed vs block size and orphaning :)

At this point, I'm sure I know more about it than you do. Orphaning isn't an issue when we're forking off.

This is really helpful for sorting out all the technicalities. Thank you!

ROFL, watching BTC attack that resistance is looking like a car's rev meter right now.

F2Pool started signaling: https://t.co/S0LOJS6jhg

That's game over. BIP91 it is.

yep F2P will do the job :)

Moon day for some
And also a day where others just got mooned

Rallied hard and backed off now. Will it head back up past $3k or drop off further! Interesting times ahead and quite a few days to go before the November deadline!!

At one time when bitcoin was losing its value I was really dismayed. I converted all my bitcoins to USD with a significant loss. But, when it started to regain its value I started buying and selling at low and high prices respectively. Fortunately, I covered all the losses.

I am looking forward to the SegWit transition and the big BTC rally. Its going to be a fun ride!

@kingscrown - Apollo 11 saga is one of my favorite ones. In spite of all the controversy about whether NASA actually sent men to moon, I firmly believe that moon landing did actually happen and was a giant step for mankind. Similarly, now with these positive signs of BIP91 locking in, Bitcoin should go to moon. Thanks for this analogy. I love it. Hopefully, the progress shown by Litecoin kicks in soon for bitcoin too. Let us keep fingers crossed. Upvoted.

Update at my end is that I am doing a 'Photospeak' series with my memories from Africa - with just a photo with minimal words - Letting the picture speak for itself mostly. I would be honored if you can take a look at latest ones when you have time and provide your valuable comments. Thanks

Excellent post! Thanks for keeping us updated on SegWit. The entire crypto world is watching to see how Father Bitcoin manages.

Dont be superstisious ;)

Hoping BTC will fall a little lower before it sky rockets back up! I missed the last dip. But yes, I'm very excited to see what happens after the fork - both for the technology and the value <3

So, would you advise to hold on to BTC? Or buy into BTC even more before August 1st?

good question!

My personal approach is to move all my BTC to a private wallet. I am using Armory myself, but there are many other great choices for wallets. Just don't keep your BTC on any exchanges until the storm passes.

Hodl. Buy close to 1st :)

Nice Moon day for BTC! Maybe one day someone will really go there!

What a glorious day indeed!

BTC is on the rise and we all love that!

Also, here you can check how SegWit2x is doing in real time:
(look at Proposal Activation Spotlight)

The current signalling period ends in about 8 hours and 20 minutes. If we can keep it above 80% for this time, the price of BTC should go even higher.

More info: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@cardboard/bitcoin-segwit2x-update-we-just-hit-80-threshold

None of that matters if Big Block Fork succeeds. It looks like it has an economic advantage in this poll that can't be sybil attacked: https://vote.bitcoin.com/arguments/the-bitcoin-abc-client-and-big-block-fork-bitcoincash-is-a-better-roadmap-than-both-segwit-and-segwit2x

I'm sorry, but no one seriously takes bitcoin cash or bitcoin abc. I know that the owner of bitcoin.com wants us to think otherwise but just no.

That poll can't be sybil attacked, so you really don't have a point.

No one besides big blockers go there, seriously.

small blockers can get to the site just as easy, they just like to poo poo it because they don't like the results.

I'm afraid you won't like the results of whats gonna happen in about 5 hours ;)

Makes zero difference. Segwit being activated means nothing to people following the big block fork.

Great news for btc. hopefully we finally break that 3000$ mark.

I don;t think price is gonna fix up here. I think before 1 august, the price will fall again. it's a kind of bullish trap and people are jsut trapping in it .

I hope it trickles down into the rest of the alt coins

What should we do now to have our Bitcoins save?

Hello you can buy USDT in the highest level of BTC and you safeguard yours BTC

Everybody can see something is happening with the increase in bitcoin and it is not slowing down now.
Full steem ahead on the bitcoin train to the mOoN!

Great man!!
please encourage budding bloggers.
if u like it please upvote me and follow me i"ll follow u back

Cant wait. The future looks bright

The recovery from that crash was pretty weak. Even though there's some hype about SegWit activation, I don't see the price staying up for more than a few months. After Lightning Network begins and people realise it's not the greatest payment system ever created, their expectations will fall a tad.

Hello I want to be your friend to help each other in this world of steemit Follow me @yahsa89 let's sharing

Now it makes sense to buy Bitcoins?

We can predict things like this is simply amazing

It will be stratosphere day for BTC one day.

Go segwit go! I will pay my coffee with BTC!

I need BTC to go to that moon 🚀

Segwit activation will Dump it again - It will not be stable till 1st August

Great news for BTC hodlers! To the moon!!

how much money talk?

hard to make decisions in a speculative market, though news that makes Bitcoin seem more stable will always have a positive influence.
watch out for November 18th

That is very good news, thank you for sharing.I can't wait to see just how high bitcoin will soar :)

I hope btc won't go same as ETH
I am an ETH holder (also btc but more ETH) when it forked, I was about to get a heart attack man, 400 to 140$.......

who vote this comment I will follow them and vote their future post :)

Wonderful knowledge to spread around. Thx you

Sold some of my BTC yesterday thinking it would crash hard this weekend dangit! Rally came a few days too early for me :(

I think that there will be bigger game. Check out the game that miners played with the LTC when starting segwit (They signaled for a moment, then they stopped). I would bet on it some money. What are you think about it?

Can't wait to see what happens on the 1st of August, I hope it's something great and AWESOME.👍👌👆👏

Happy to see BTC back up to $2700! Nice that it happened on Moon Day. Hoping we have more encouraging days like these ahead for both BTC and Steem. Seems like the Bear days have been long even though it's been a relatively short dry spell. Here's to prosperous time ahead for all Steemians!

Funny how the date of Bip91 locking in and the moon landing are correlated. thanks for the observation!

If all goes well and the transition is smooth then more people are going to move their money back into the markets and we will surely go to the moon.
Let's just wait and see what happens.
What percentage approval rate does BIP 91 need?

Good question. Awesome. Thank you. I'm Doctor Oatmeal Joey Arnold Oregon.

Hola lo del bitcoin sera real pero lo de la luna en papel aluminio jajjaja que falso eso

While I agree with you,I find the moon analogy funny. I'm one of those folks who doesnt believe weve been too the moon, doesnt believe we could go to the moon, and doesnt believe our idea of what the moon is correct. BTC gonna moon none the less

Those who purchased bitcoins when it dropped to 1800$ are really clever ones! Easy profit for them within 4 to 5 days!

really helpful for sorting out all the technicalities my friend ;)
Upvote Y Resteem have a great day

Apparently, it is. BTC revisiting moon already. We might see $3000 this week, thoughts?

I think this was the reason XD

if not, I will eat my dick on national television.

Finally after long time passed. That's real community, not perfect yet but more democratic, we must admit. And again Bitcoin rose uP!

Thanks for the update. I think we are all sitting on the edge of our seats watching this thing unfold.

I buckle my seat belts then ....

Exactly as I predicted in my BTC forecast yesterday. Heres todays forecast https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@hotsauceislethal/bitcoin-price-forecast-7-19-2017#

1 BITCOIN = $2,756.72 today and not impossible to reach 3k if the trend will continue to be rising. :P

Buy the rumors and sell the news concept 💪🏼🙌🏼💯

yep really moon day

Just did a bitcoin video bought some at 1900 and am holding everything! Goldman Sachs is getting into cryptos this will send them to the moon!!!

I cashed out my btc and eth when they went on a high and it seems like they are headed for the moon now as you mentioned, seems a little late to get in now?

I Love bitcoin

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind"

To the moon

Bitcoin was teetering between $2700 and $2900 an hour ago, I predict that leading up to Segwit activation it will pass the $3000 mark.

Scaling up is definitely happening :D I wonder where it will level out at after the first week of August?

Well done brother

bitcoin is doing ok but the next big coin is the steemit creator mr. Ian who has eos

Buy buy buy
Number 12 on http://coinmarketcap.com

Thanks! I hadn't seen that one. I'll check it out. Bitcoin and EOS are 2 very different investment. Both are good one I think.

Oh no I was wrong. I've seen that incredible interview. It's not Ian it's Dan! This interview is super awesome.

Nice , if btc will go to the moon , that means we can have a big profit again, Yahh YOOO!!!

Haha those Coin Telegraph designs are so good.

Take a look at my little technical analysis bitcoin blog from earlier today.

Light that rocket baby, we're going to the moon!

BTC going to the moon then travel again to mars hehehe
