Bitconnect finally gone bust!

The sketchy crypto coin and lending platform Bitconnect has finally gone bust!

Just $400 per 1 unit of BCC a few weeks ago, down to $15 today, and still dropping.

Their website and subreddit are offline:
https://bitconnect.co/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitconnect/

You can still get an idea of the damage by checking out BCC on Coinmarketcap site here. Also read more about it at this article.

Many youtubers were promoting Bitconnect with their referral links, many came across as spammy, for such a scammy pyramid-style setup that Bitconnect was. Users like Craig Grant, Trevon James & CryptoNick, c’mon fuckers, you knew exactly what you were pushing! Quit pleading innocence on this! 😡

The shameless BCC holders hitting HitBTC trollbox with comments like “Buy BCC!!!” or “hold your BCC it go back up”, “HODL BCC”, but if you have a brain in your head, you know better than to touch it with a 10 foot pole.

Conspiracy theory: China intentional crypto price manipulation

imagine if China eventually retracted their statements banning bitcoin mining in China, China centralized exchanges, OTC, or anything crypto….. using that news as a massive price manipulation to their own advantage. This would be incredibly smart, towards building wealth of course, but is that fair? Would this effect any world wide regulation or law towards markets or finance manipulation? Lets discuss

Search Google for “china manipulating currency” and you’ll see, manipulation is something they have always done with currency, why wouldn’t they with something as easy to manipulate as bitcoin or any other crypto?

Conversation with a crypto expert

I have never had a conversation in my hometown about bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, or any crypto in the last 10 years, well, very minimal, until 2017. In 2017 with the explosion of crypto, especially bitcoin, ethereum, ripple, and all, many people love to discuss this topic, some love, some hate, some just amazed and excited.

This is what sums up many conversations I’ve had with normal everyday people supporting or indirectly trying to pump their shitcoin (Ripple in this story), but many with Tronix, Bcash, and many others.

expert: “dude, RIPPLE is where it’s at!!!”
me: “why XRP?”
expert: “what’s XRP?”
me: “XRP is the abbreviation for Ripple”
expert: “anyways, dude!! it was like $1, then $3!!!”
me: “but it’s centralized”
expert: “what do you mean?”
me: “nothing, shall we get shots?”
expert: “fuckyeaaaaa”

Seems so many people think they’ve become crypto experts lately, giving advices and such, nobody knows anything so please quit that shit! And if you’re going to pump anything please at least have an argument or some kind of reason! Jeez!!!

Bitcoin Jesus or Crypto Cancer?

Roger Ver, he calls himself “Bitcoin Jesus”, as a narcissistic that he is, must compare himself to higher powers, or GODlike figures like Jesus. In my opinion he is a cancer to the crypto markets, bitcoin especially, but surely the entire crypto game as a whole.

Everyone, do not support narcissistic, egotistical, scammer, misleading and master manipulators like Roger Ver! Things he’s involved with are: Bcash (Bitcoin Cash, BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Bitcoin.com (beware, he aims to mislead you into getting Bitcoin wallets while in fact you’re getting Bcash wallets), and the list goes on.

Beware!

Newbie money entering the crypto world

There has been an influx of newbie money entering the crypto space, many newbs that I know are seemingly more interested in Xrp, LTC, & Iota, and I always ask why, from what I have observed, they are not interested to invest in Bitcoin because it is “too high” or “too expensive”, so it seems they want to invest in the less popular coins, no matter what they may be, because they are cheaper, mor affordable, can own full units, and I’m pretty sure their drive is that they want to recreate the bitcoin rising experience.

So with Ripple rising so quickly right now (39-79cents in last 24hr), really great for those making tons of gains, but my gut is telling me this one, with the new money, which will be panicky and weak, once it begins to downturn, should fall really big, really fast.

Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX double forking day

Ok so today at bitcoin block height 498888 we had a double fork from Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX. SBTC 1:1 and BCX 1:10,000. I used the exchange Gate.io & Okex to get my forked coins, all went smooth, dumped everything quickly for bitcoin, as usual. SBTC has been ranging from around $105 – $300 today, while BCX has been ranging around $0.016 – $0.03.

As usual most of the Chinese bitcoin exchanges were supporting these forked coins. I participated in using Gate.io, Okex, and Bitfinex. Gate & Okex distributed all tokens asap while Bitfinex still waiting, will post results later.
