When Will STEEM Rise Again?

in steem •  2 months ago

Bear markets do not end because buyers suddenly rush in - nobody wants to catch a falling knife - they end when all the sellers have stopped selling. When the price is so low that selling is pointless, then the trade imbalance starts in the opposite direction - then you start to see a relief rally.

With one eye on STEEM and the other on the whole crypto market, we have dropped through the $250bn market cap, and then the $200bn level, and are staring at anything from $170bn (we're already almost there) down to $120bn. That could mean a STEEM price of about 50 cents - back to May 2017.

Interesting article here: Major Mining Pool F2Pool Publishes List of Minimum Prices for Profitable Crypto Mining.

A coin is not much of a "store of value" if it costs more to mine than the coin is worth; this happens all the time in the physical mining industries.

Although Steem has no miners, I hope the witnesses are making more than the cost of processing blocks. Having said that, back in April 2017 STEEM was around 25 cents.

One thing that is peculiar, is that news about blockchain technology is still largely positive, yet news about crypto currencies remains negative. If one has some decent funds, it may be wise to invest in blockchain companies to balance holdings in coins. I would not be surprised to see some coins just fold; this does not mean that the groups behind those coins won't have newer projects in the pipeline.

Steem remains one of the few coins to actually have a functioning social ecosystem, so if you haven't sold out then this is the time to accumulate. If you need to "take a break", then set up auto-votes and auto-redeeming of rewards and you may be pleasantly surprised when you come back.

We may have to wait for SMTs to be fully functional before the price makes any solid progress, but hopefully that is not too far away.

Get out of the crap and only hold reputable coins. I've moved into NEO, EOS, Stellar and Steem. That's all until the cost is clear.

I agree gans with your description...

But in my other opinion, this is instability due to steem power officials. It is clear that you can see for yourself how they work. Hhhh

I follow a crypto newsletter guy that has a buy up to price on steem power to $3.50, lol. Not going to see that price anytime soon.

There is no buy signal. lol. Even the sell signal is in the rear-view mirror. Just hold on tightly... and enjoy the ride!

I wish I had a fantasy newsletter too.
