Why is steem pumping today?

Why is steem pumping today? I have not found any news that would justify such a strong rally relative to the rest of the market.

Does anyone have any idea?

I found this at @ackza steemit page and i also think it's probable.

Now steem is up 17% on Binance Bittrex thats a REAL price, and on BitThumb South korean exchange, Is someone paying $2.86 now in order to buy what was 4 then 8 now 13.27 MILLION dollars worth of Steem!



Koreans are crazy О_о


Obviously most part of the trade volume is done from Korea. I just hope there is some positive (insider) news behind it, related to SMT Tokens and not somebody trying to push the price higher and earn some money this way. CoinMarketCap has even excluded the trade volume/price from Bihumb due to "outlier detection" (*** Volume $14,845,900 *** Price $2.59)

I think we should not look for any fundamentals! Last week I posted a comment with my prediction for STEEM and it's doing exactly what I thought without any clue about coming news or so:)

However I think it's still a correction before next short term plunge that should complete this year correction.
Here's current chart:

I guess it is some pump and dump scheme, there is not needed a lot of volume to pump the steem price so much, so maybe somebody is playing with the price.

Have this post for example, it highlights the volume that Steem had at the last major pumps and the volume which has been traded to obtain this current growth.

Anyway, this is good because it gives Steem popularity among investors who are looking at the potential coins to invest and notice Steem with a 30% growth.

It's volume based as have all the strong peaks. This leads me to believe it's related to the SMT's and those that know the timing of the news coming out. Hard to ignore the added volume that drove this over the last 24 hours. If you ever played penny stocks the rule is buy the rumor and sell the news. Really seems like crypto plays out the same way. Most rumors are much more valuable then the actual news is in reality.

So insiders will buy before the rumor gets started, once the rumor is going about why they bought they sit back and enjoy the rest of the run up, then the actual news comes out which will be close to the rumor but not all the way there, then the insiders start selling while others are figuring out what the news actually meant.


Thats describes every coin in the history of cryptos.

It is showing its true potential today!

The prices on Bithumb are currently distorted following the recent hack and the closure of accounts to deposit and withdrawals. Many coins are showing prices significantly above the rest of the market and many volumes are through the roof (check WAX for example).

(This could be the hackers attempting to use any new funds that they haven't managed to extract to pump and dump on smaller volume coins - I'm not sure about this part).

The effect on the coin price in the rest of the market will vary by coin. Since Steem has comparatively few market listings / volumes that are not high / an active user base always looking at the price, the influence of one distorted market may be more significant on the price than for other coins.

Just my guesswork, not financial advice.

I would not be too surprised, if there is some sort of insider or "agreed" trading behind this sudden push in price. The volume of trade is up from 1-4 mio USD daily in previous days to around 25 mio USD daily. Whatever it is, it is nice to see Steem higher again.

Looks like whatever scheme is going on it started yesterday at Noon Eastern Time US or 1600 UTC. There is quite a bit of volume so there needs to be some major players involved. The reason I’m lead to believe this a coordinated effort is because the volume of the initial buy in to drive the price is very similar to the major sell off half up the trend. There was a little more volume for the sell off because there were peoole that jumped on the bandwagon when they saw the price change and wanted to take profits while the price was inflated. Looks like they tried to pump it again but with everyone playing attention to the price the average investor starting making moves and the price was kept down and driven down by more people taking profits. It might settle out to be a 50% gain over yesterday’s price at best, or correct all the back to yesterday’s price. I think this was an artificial and contrived action and the market will organically correct itself. Thanks for the post @knircky!

My grandmother just bought a huge amount of steem after I told her about this awesome platform steemit.com .
Just kidding. I have no clue but I'm enjoying the show and I hope this time it will never end.

Welcome back my friends to the show that nevers ends.

Das sind auf jeden Fall gute News. Langfristig halte ich Steem sowieso für ein Top-Investment! ;-)

STEEM was extremely oversold -- it is interesting though. STEEM is one of my favorite cryptos right now, such a great crypto -- multiple use cases besides wealth transfer.

Because we are going to the Moon...

It's seems that it's not just another crazy move, and there was some other strange activities like number of active persons on steemit etc. I would guess it is related to SMT tokens, and there will be some news about them soon, and maybe some new project, even steemit 2.0 :)


Yea I was thinking the same thing. I saw some posts about githiub commits.

I think we should not think about it. We had better think of how can we invest in Bitcoin now.

Steem fell pretty hard compared to bitcoin, so its recovering harder. There is never a reason for cryptos to go either way. They just move and people find reason to justify what happened.

I was checking for the same info could not find, yesterday it was low today its high, look like a trap, maybe some are trying to use steemit by buying making their profile score high

@knircky has set 1.000 STEEM bounty on this post! logo_for-light-bg_1000.png
What is a bounty exactly?

A bounty is money sent to a post to be distributed to the users commenting on it. It provides a way to reward users directly and works in addition to the steem/sbd they receive from the blockchain. It works independently of SteemPower.

You create a bounty by sending any amount of sbd/steem to @steem-bounty together with a post-url in the memo.

How can I earn a bounty Users are then competing for the bounty by writing their answers to the post in comments that will achieve upvotes from the community and especially the bounty creator. The money of the bounty gets distributed to all top level comments of the post at the same time when the post is paid out (7 Days after it was written). How much everyone gets depends on the votes the comments received. The sender of the bounties votes are weighted higher so that she decideds where 80% of the bounty money goes and all other votes determine the rest.

@steem-bounty does all of this for you automatically. You can use this service to automatically pay out a challenge, ask a hard question or simply to reward the people that interact with you.

there is no intent. Crypto market is very irrational. Pump companies and FOMO, there are various factors however no longer an exact reason

1h ago I wake up too and I wonder why this happened to STEEM and not first to SBD, because in the past, first the SBD start rising and than the STEEM come behind his way.... I have no answer for your question , sorry knircky. But I hope someone will have some news, today or tomorrow...

The conspiracy theory seems to bring to Soros and the bankSTers: since they create money from thin air, they can manipulate every market they wish to control.

Theirs goals aren’t making money, but control the human beings... or what else?
A fraternal hug from @amico! 🤗

Just a pump and dump.

Not surprised though..... Because I believe inflation and deflation occurs.......

Rise and fall on the price-level

I would not be too surprised if there was some kind of internal exchange or "agreement" behind this repentant impulse in the price. The prices in Bithumb are currently distorted after the recent piracy and the closing of accounts for deposits and withdrawals. This is a new month and the beginning of the second half of the year and it may be Steem had a new resolution for the second phase of the year. It is showing its true potential today!

The pump in steem price may occur to encourage investors

This a new month and beginning of the second half of the year and may be Steem had new resolution for the second phase of the year. Lolxx Just musing though

I think the pump in steem price is to encourage investors or encourage new users but i don't know the real cause

No wonder why it is happening but it sure is kinda good news I suppose !

No idea at all. I just noticed it was around top 30 cryptos for quite some while. Then the last weeks it started to slip into the 40 region and now its back to 30.

I think steem moves a volume not as high as other altcoin which makes it more vulnerable to be pumped, the exchange houses have great responsibility in this and even more the Korean, what if it is true is that today is beginning to show its potential again. all in expectation.

its a normal pump as all alt coins are pumping.

Everbody i ask they always say it happens when they manipulate the market prices.

I reported to work early?? @angrytwin
