Great to see a sea of green. Let’s hope the trend continues. South Korea is looking good. As a foreigner we are still banned from depositing money into our accounts, but trading and withdrawing have been confirmed a go, good news

that is good to hear. I normally wouldn't upvote your comment as much but these self-voted nonsense ones shouldn't be at the top :)

Much appreciated. I was worried for a bit because regulators were going to force foreign users to open a new bank account at a certain bank to even be allowed doing anything, but because of the public backlash they loosened their requirements a bit. It’s not perfect but it’s better than nothing

Hahahaha. Stay chill! But I agree. :D

chill... Hold on... South Korean as I know, have no problem with crypto...

Is there an alternative to relating crypto worth to the us dollar? Like, yeah its cool and all bt if you have to turn around and get dollars for your crypto then it seems like it would be benificial to the government to inflate everything or crash the dollar so the crypto cant be worth dollars, idk

Btc back to 9000$

when price falls it feels like market will never go up. When market is positive it feels like it will hit the target.

Luno has remarkable service and their roots here in Africa can attest to that because of the growing number of users who trust in it. About the 1billion users mark by 2025, thats seems too ambitious but who knows, cryptocurrency has no boundaries so I think the sky is the limit.

Glad to see things back on the up and up! Hope it can continue.

That time when Btc is at 9k, i guess i still don’t have any idea about cryptos. Thank God my friends told me about this steemit platform. And after joining steemit platform, i spend a portion of my time reading news and updates about cryptos.

Yep, can't forget that bleeding market but things are now going to cool down. May be coz of Chinese Lunar year.

Everything is getting back to how it should be. But man litecoin is flying.

you shared good states of crypto...

Nice post @penguinpablo

Saw a tweet today from Charles Lee, denying any Litecoin fork. Or maybe we imagined it?

'member Chewbacca???

it's a trap!

That's good news, all right! But the more significant price barrier is $10,000. In addition to it being a psychologically-significant number, it was the price where Bitcoin halted before continuing to plummet to ~$7,000.

that pie chart, really shows how bitcoin is still do dominant, i think its lost on a lot of people . Please help take time to view my post. Thanks for viewing.

You remind me of the story of the unlucky person who throws his hard disk with a lot of bitcoins. :D

Just get two PayPal accounts, send money to one via credit card, send it back friends & family, then transfer to your bank, and then buy whatever you want. I mean, I'm not condoning that by any means, but it's possible. People buy all sorts of stuff they shouldn't with credit... haha.
