in #bitcoin7 years ago

Another wild day. Bitcoin has been up $250, about 6%, in the previous 24 hours. This may be related to the coming Bitcoin derivatives.

For the Bitcoin trader in you, the current Bitcoin price is about $4,300 with the 200-day moving average is at $1,836 and the 50-day moving average is at $2,746. Both are rising sharply. This puts the relative 200-day moving average price at 2.34 and relative 50-day moving average price at 1.57.

Bitcoin price 14 August 2017

Many of the alt-coins have been retreating. Exceptions include IOTA which is up 18%, NEO which is up 4.7% and Bytom which is up 45%. The IOTA market capitalization is $2.448B. The NEO market capitalization is $2.259B. The Bytom market capitalization is $164m. Meanwhile, it seems that DASH has been slowly retreating in price being down 2.9% to a $1.488B market capitalization.


The CFTC approved LedgerX for a swap execution facility. This turf war with the SEC will be interesting to watch.

These alt-coins all have decentralized exchanges as a key factor in their development.

IOTA is mainly traded on Bitfinex which is barring US customers.

What are your thoughts? Where might we see the price action today? Any other key news items we should be aware of? Please help us out and leave your comments. Thanks!


Thank you @tracemayer! Bitcoin is going wild and a good future is ahead I expect. What do you think about the news that Russia starts mining bitcoin? Do you think this could cause an armsrace between nations to get first into it to profit enormously? I do! very bullish!

I just made a killing on NEO. I have moved the profits into Stratis. Trading BTC on leverage is also paying off big. Good to see you writing on Steemit again! REsteemed

Yeah, NEO has been great for me too. I have STRAT but have not added too it, sounds like you are still high on it?

I am more and more glad for the decentralization that Cryptocurrency brings whit it, but my only fear is that at some point a regulation can be imposed on all of this trade, by a pretext of money laundering, which will bring the freedom that this new technology brings to a halt.
Thank for the post @tracemayer

Trace look into this book https://www.amazon.com/Great-American-Eclipse-Earthquake-Tsunami-ebook/dp/B074KW3PXC/ and on John Hogue work at hogueprophecy.com

Thank you for sharing this information. Unfortunately, I woefully lack in crypto knowledge. Steem On brother!

Thanks Trace - useful information. I have great hopes for Swarm.City - a decentralised platform for exchange - currently being built. Go to "swarm.city" to learn about it - even better, if you are a member of Slack, go to swarmcity.slack.com

Upvoted and shared to Facebook for all those folks out there in pasture who don't know what the heck is going on (and hopefully they get their savings OUT OF THE STOCK MARKET, before the proverbially you-know-what hits the fan.)
