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?

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.

Why does Jihan Wu hate “Bcash”?

At a conference a man refers to Bitcoin Cash as “Bcash” and Jihan Wu gets his panty in a bunch, “Maximum disruption” yelling out “Iss Bitcoin Cash! Not Bcash!”

The question is, WHY Jihan do you really care so much what people call your altcoin? I have a theory.

One of the main reasons Bitcoin Cash is even “a thing” right now is because of it’s parasitic nature, not only does Bitcoin Cash copy Bitcoin’s logo, they also steal the priceless branding that bitcoin and it’s team of developers have built.

The upcoming Segwit2x situation

Get ready, prepare your bitcoins! Make sure you’re storing them on a Segwit2x supportive exchange, Ledger Nano or Trezor.

I was going to research the exchanges and make an informative compiliation but it looks like BitcoinMagazine has beat me to it, luckily! haha. If your exchanges are these:
Bitfinex, Bitmex (awesome stance on s2x), Bitstamp, GDAX (Coinbase), Bitflyer, Kraken, HitBTC, Bitcoin.de, CoinsBank, Cex.io, itBit, Gemini (Winklevoss’ exchange), Coinfloor, BTCC (Chinese), BitMarket, QuadrigaCX (Canada), Mercado Bitcoin (Brazil & Argentina), Bitso, The Rock Trading, & EXMO … then check the detailed descriptioins of those on BTCmag here.

Others that have not made statements yet about the upcoming segwit2x (B2x) UAHF are: Mercatox, OKcoin, & Binance.

But also make sure to check your exchanges own blog or announcements pages so you can hear it from the horse’s own mouth.

Which crypto adding to Bithumb next?

Bithumb is the Korean exchange with massive volume. Check it out, bithumb.com. Usually after they add any crypto the price surges to highs, Monero from $60’s to $130’s, Zcash from $250’s to $450’s, and last was QTUM which didnt perform as well (but what were they thinking by adding this coin last time?)

So lets get prepared! The question of today is, “Which crypto currency is Bithumb going to add next?” is it Neo, Cardano, IOTA, OmiseGO, Stellar, Lisk?

US Citizens troubles with Bitcoin exchanges

So recently I wanted to test out the Bitmex trading platform, and as I tried to begin by depositing bitcoins into my account, I get this message:

Due to local laws, BitMEX is unable to service your country (US). We cannot accept deposits. If you believe this to be in error, contact us at support@bitmex.com.

While any US citizen using Bitfinex (imho the best bitcoin trading platform around) know that they are terminating all crypto transactions from ALL US individual customer accounts:

“we are terminating trading, deposits, and withdrawal functionality for U.S. individual customers by no later than November 9, 2017.”

from this post.

WTF is going on??? I would love to hear your informations or opinions on why this is happening, is Trumpland USA really fucking shit up internationally?

Will Bithumb (Korean exchange) ever add Zcash?

Will the #1 Korean exchange, Bithumb, ever add Zcash to their list of crypto currencies traded on their platform?

They have all the top crypto’s Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Litecoin, Ethereum Classic, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Monero. When you check other exchanges like Poloniex, Cryptopia, Bitfinex, Bittrex, HitBTC, Kraken, and even the choices Ledger Nano and Trezor have, seems like Bithumb next coin to be adding should be Zcash.

This completely speculatory and coming from my own opinion, would love to hear your opinions on this, email me at talkbitcoins.com |at| gmail

If you’d like to suggest Zcash to be added at Bithumb you can here https://www.bithumb.com/u1/US133
