Dogecoin (DOGE) Price Analysis: Dogecoin Price Still ...


Dogecoin surges to dizzying heights amid TikTok hype
Oliver Knight
July 9, 2020, 6:27 am
Dogecoin, a longstanding staple of the cryptocurrency ecosystem, has been struck by a remarkably unexpected rally over the past 48-hours, with it now trading 82% higher against Bitcoin than it was two days ago.
The meme-friendly digital asset, which was created as a joke in 2013, has emerged as a target for millions of TikTok users that claim it will rally all the way to $1.
The #DOGE hashtag now has millions of posts on both TikTok and Twitter, with cryptocurrency exchanges responding by listing both futures and perpetual swap contracts of the cryptocurrency.
This morning Binance revealed that as of tomorrow customers can trade Doge/USDT with up to 50x leverage.
Bitfinex, meanwhile, announced that it will list MDOGE with a conversion rate of one million as it attempts to capitalise on the recent wave of hype.

While a coin like Doge pumping unsustainably may seem like fun, investors should be wary about using leveraged products as it massively increases the risk of liquidation.
To be clear, this is not financial advice but retail investors should be cautious about buying into an asset that has already made substantial gains on the back of a viral social media post, especially when Doge has been the recipient of a number of pump and dumps over the past two years.
Looking at Dogecoin’s chart, the current level of 50 sats has been a historical point of support and resistance dating all the way back to 2015, which means price may be halted here unless another wave of volume comes in.

Bitcoin vs. Altcoins: Which rocket will fire first?

Bitcoin vs. Altcoins: Which rocket will fire first?
As always, we present the latest findings and insights in the crypto world every 14 days. About 8 weeks ago, we wrote in our report for the first time in a long time that we assume that the altcoins will make another strong comeback. From today's perspective, we have hit the bull's eye.

The current situation on the market is interesting: It seems that we are in a panic phase in which everyone is looking for the next big Altcoin pump.
Good examples of this are the sometimes irrational rise in Dogecoin's price or the multitude of extremely bullish tweets about some DeFi tokens on Twitter.
In this report we look at the "boring" Bitcoin course and the altcoins.
On the one hand, we ask ourselves how BTC is as digital gold given the fact that gold is on the way to an absolute all-time high.
On the other hand, we want to see if there is any further upside potential for the alts.

The Altcoin casino is in full swing

Two weeks ago we looked at the Bitcoin dominance chart. We were able to identify an upward channel.
A look at the chart below shows that this channel has clearly been broken down.
The Altcoin casino is in full swing and shows how much interest (and longing for big profits) is among many investors.
Let’s finish dominance and take a look at the NASDAQ DeFi Index.
Since September 2019, NASDAQ has listed a DeFi index that tracks MakerDao, Augur, Gnosis, Numerai and 0x. Admittedly, the currently large projects such as COMP, Lend, KNC and SNX are missing.
Here too we can see that the DeFi market (according to the index) has been in the consolidation phase for a few days.
However, if we look at other projects like the ones just mentioned (COMP, LEND, etc.) or Dogecoin, we can see that there is still positive momentum in the Altcoin market.
It is important to understand that you should not be tempted by FOMO.
The entire DeFi market is in a young phase, growth has been high in the last few weeks, and investors should, therefore, expect consolidation before any further growth phase begins.

Bitcoin and altcoins: an overview of on-chain metrics

In contrast to chart analysis, on-chain metrics help us to understand more complex relationships and to identify long-term or sustainable trends.
In this case, we are now looking at a chart that shows us when Bitcoin was last moved:
We can see that the last time that so many BTC were not moved was in January 2016.
This time marked the end of a bear market. Let us be surprised by how the current journey will continue from here.

Ethereum Net Flow: What about the ETH offering on exchanges?

In addition to Bitcoin, we also want to look at Ethereum. We start with a well-known graphic: the netflows from Exchanges.
Here we can see over the period from mid-March that more Ethereum (ETH) flowed from exchanges than to the stock exchanges themselves.
The peak was June, in which around 800,000 ETH more flowed from exchanges than went to them.
Long story short: We see a shortening of the offer on the stock exchange, which is logically bullish for Ethereum.
In summary, we can say that the entire crypto market is currently in good condition. Bitcoin is stable at over $ 9,000 and some altcoins have been picking up speed over the past few weeks. At the same time, BTC dominance decreases, which gives the altcoins further scope. The on-chain metrics fit into this sentiment and make us bullish.

Dogecoin (DOGE) Is The Only Major Cryptocurrency That Is Stable During This Nuclear Bear Market

Dogecoin (DOGE) Is The Only Major Cryptocurrency That Is Stable During This Nuclear Bear Market
Every day I do a deep dive market analysis on my radio show, and most of the focus recently has been how the bottom fell out of the crypto market, in what I call a nuclear bear market. However, there is one cryptocurrency that is not getting rekt during the nuclear bear market, and that is Dogecoin (DOGE). The market cap of Dogecoin has consistently stayed at about USD 250 million, while all other major cryptocurrencies decline. In other words, Dogecoin is outperforming all other major cryptocurrencies over the past month, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Dash, Monero, Litecoin, etc.
In the above 1 year chart from CoinMarketCap it can be seen that Dogecoin has an obvious bottom around USD 250 million market cap. The nuclear bear market has been defined by the bottom falling out for major cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin which plummeted below its USD 5,800 support level. For Dogecoin the bottom has not fallen out at all, its holding strong. Literally, if people would have kept their money in Dogecoin since the Bitcoin Cash fork, they would not have lost any money.
Why is this the case? It’s because Dogecoin has a fundamental demand and support level due to its expansive community. The Dogecoin community likes to hold on tight to their Dogecoins, and there is real economic activity fueled by Dogecoin. Most cryptocurrencies are not actually used as a currency, but Dogecoin is. Dogecoin is one of only 8 cryptocurrencies that actually has ATMs, which allow Dogecoin to be traded in real-life instantly for cold hard cash. There are 80 Dogecoin ATMs worldwide.
The truth is Dogecoin is an obvious top choice for cryptocurrency investors, since it is stable in the worst of times, and ready to skyrocket when the next big crypto rally comes.

Bitcoin is a digital currency created in January 2009. It follows the ideas set out in a white paper by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, whose true identity is yet to be verified. Bitcoin offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government-issued currencies.
There are no physical bitcoins, only balances kept on a public ledger in the cloud, that – along with all Bitcoin transactions – is verified by a massive amount of computing power. Bitcoins are not issued or backed by any banks or governments, nor are individual bitcoins valuable as a commodity. Despite it not being legal tender, Bitcoin charts high on popularity, and has triggered the launch of other virtual currencies collectively referred to as Altcoins.
Understanding Bitcoin Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency: Balances are kept using public and private "keys," which are long strings of numbers and letters linked through the mathematical encryption algorithm that was used to create them. The public key (comparable to a bank account number) serves as the address which is published to the world and to which others may send bitcoins. The private key (comparable to an ATM PIN) is meant to be a guarded secret and only used to authorize Bitcoin transmissions. Style notes: According to the official Bitcoin Foundation, the word "Bitcoin" is capitalized in the context of referring to the entity or concept, whereas "bitcoin" is written in the lower case when referring to a quantity of the currency (e.g. "I traded 20 bitcoin") or the units themselves. The plural form can be either "bitcoin" or "bitcoins."
How Bitcoin Works Bitcoin is one of the first digital currencies to use peer-to-peer technology to facilitate instant payments. The independent individuals and companies who own the governing computing power and participate in the Bitcoin network, also known as "miners," are motivated by rewards (the release of new bitcoin) and transaction fees paid in bitcoin. These miners can be thought of as the decentralized authority enforcing the credibility of the Bitcoin network. New bitcoin is being released to the miners at a fixed, but periodically declining rate, such that the total supply of bitcoins approaches 21 million. One bitcoin is divisible to eight decimal places (100 millionths of one bitcoin), and this smallest unit is referred to as a Satoshi. If necessary, and if the participating miners accept the change, Bitcoin could eventually be made divisible to even more decimal places. Bitcoin mining is the process through which bitcoins are released to come into circulation. Basically, it involves solving a computationally difficult puzzle to discover a new block, which is added to the blockchain and receiving a reward in the form of a few bitcoins. The block reward was 50 new bitcoins in 2009; it decreases every four years. As more and more bitcoins are created, the difficulty of the mining process – that is, the amount of computing power involved – increases. The mining difficulty began at 1.0 with Bitcoin's debut back in 2009; at the end of the year, it was only 1.18. As of February 2019, the mining difficulty is over 6.06 billion. Once, an ordinary desktop computer sufficed for the mining process; now, to combat the difficulty level, miners must use faster hardware like Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC), more advanced processing units like Graphic Processing Units (GPUs), etc.
What's a Bitcoin Worth? In 2017 alone, the price of Bitcoin rose from a little under $1,000 at the beginning of the year to close to $19,000, ending the year more than 1,400% higher. Bitcoin's price is also quite dependent on the size of its mining network since the larger the network is, the more difficult – and thus more costly – it is to produce new bitcoins. As a result, the price of bitcoin has to increase as its cost of production also rises. The Bitcoin mining network's aggregate power has more than tripled over the past twelve months.
How Bitcoin Began
Aug. 18, 2008: The domain name is registered. Today, at least, this domain is "WhoisGuard Protected," meaning the identity of the person who registered it is not public information.
Oct. 31, 2008: Someone using the name Satoshi Nakamoto makes an announcement on The Cryptography Mailing list at "I've been working on a new electronic cash system that's fully peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party. The paper is available at" This link leads to the now-famous white paper published on entitled "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System." This paper would become the Magna Carta for how Bitcoin operates today.
Jan. 3, 2009: The first Bitcoin block is mined, Block 0. This is also known as the "genesis block" and contains the text: "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks," perhaps as proof that the block was mined on or after that date, and perhaps also as relevant political commentary.
Jan. 8, 2009: The first version of the Bitcoin software is announced on The Cryptography Mailing list.
Jan. 9, 2009: Block 1 is mined, and Bitcoin mining commences in earnest.
Who Invented Bitcoin?
No one knows. Not conclusively, at any rate. Satoshi Nakamoto is the name associated with the person or group of people who released the original Bitcoin white paper in 2008 and worked on the original Bitcoin software that was released in 2009. The Bitcoin protocol requires users to enter a birthday upon signup, and we know that an individual named Satoshi Nakamoto registered and put down April 5 as a birth date. And that's about it.
Before Satoshi
Though it is tempting to believe the media's spin that Satoshi Nakamoto is a solitary, quixotic genius who created Bitcoin out of thin air, such innovations do not happen in a vacuum. All major scientific discoveries, no matter how original-seeming, were built on previously existing research. There are precursors to Bitcoin: Adam Back’s Hashcash, invented in 1997, and subsequently Wei Dai’s b-money, Nick Szabo’s bit gold and Hal Finney’s Reusable Proof of Work. The Bitcoin white paper itself cites Hashcash and b-money, as well as various other works spanning several research fields.
Why Is Satoshi Anonymous?
There are two primary motivations for keeping Bitcoin's inventor keeping his or her or their identity secret. One is privacy. As Bitcoin has gained in popularity – becoming something of a worldwide phenomenon – Satoshi Nakamoto would likely garner a lot of attention from the media and from governments.
The other reason is safety. Looking at 2009 alone, 32,489 blocks were mined; at the then-reward rate of 50 BTC per block, the total payout in 2009 was 1,624,500 BTC, which at today’s prices is over $900 million. One may conclude that only Satoshi and perhaps a few other people were mining through 2009 and that they possess a majority of that $900 million worth of BTC. Someone in possession of that much BTC could become a target of criminals, especially since bitcoins are less like stocks and more like cash, where the private keys needed to authorize spending could be printed out and literally kept under a mattress. While it's likely the inventor of Bitcoin would take precautions to make any extortion-induced transfers traceable, remaining anonymous is a good way for Satoshi to limit exposure.
The Suspects
Numerous people have been suggested as possible Satoshi Nakamoto by major media outlets. Oct. 10, 2011, The New Yorker published an article speculating that Nakamoto might be Irish cryptography student Michael Clear or economic sociologist Vili Lehdonvirta. A day later, Fast Company suggested that Nakamoto could be a group of three people – Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry – who together appear on a patent related to secure communications that were filed two months before was registered. A Vice article published in May 2013 added more suspects to the list, including Gavin Andresen, the Bitcoin project’s lead developer; Jed McCaleb, co-founder of now-defunct Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox; and famed Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki.
In December 2013, Techcrunch published an interview with researcher Skye Grey who claimed textual analysis of published writings shows a link between Satoshi and bit-gold creator Nick Szabo. And perhaps most famously, in March 2014, Newsweek ran a cover article claiming that Satoshi is actually an individual named Satoshi Nakamoto – a 64-year-old Japanese-American engineer living in California. The list of suspects is long, and all the individuals deny being Satoshi.
Can Satoshi's Identity Be Proven?
It would seem even early collaborators on the project don’t have verifiable proof of Satoshi’s identity. To reveal conclusively who Satoshi Nakamoto is, a definitive link would need to be made between his/her activity with Bitcoin and his/her identity. That could come in the form of linking the party behind the domain registration of, email and forum accounts used by Satoshi Nakamoto, or ownership of some portion of the earliest mined bitcoins. Even though the bitcoins Satoshi likely possesses are traceable on the blockchain, it seems he/she has yet to cash them out in a way that reveals his/her identity. If Satoshi were to move his/her bitcoins to an exchange today, this might attract attention, but it seems unlikely that a well-funded and successful exchange would betray a customer's privacy.
Receiving Bitcoins As Payment
Bitcoins can be accepted as a means of payment for products sold or services provided. If you have a brick and mortar store, just display a sign saying “Bitcoin Accepted Here” and many of your customers may well take you up on it; the transactions can be handled with the requisite hardware terminal or wallet address through QR codes and touch screen apps. An online business can easily accept bitcoins by just adding this payment option to the others it offers, like credit cards, PayPal, etc. Online payments will require a Bitcoin merchant tool (an external processor like Coinbase or BitPay).
Working For Bitcoins
Those who are self-employed can get paid for a job in bitcoins. There are several websites/job boards which are dedicated to the digital currency:
Work For Bitcoin brings together work seekers and prospective employers through its websiteCoinality features jobs – freelance, part-time and full-time – that offer payment in bitcoins, as well as Dogecoin and LitecoinJobs4Bitcoins, part of reddit.comBitGigs
Bitcoin From Interest Payments
Another interesting way (literally) to earn bitcoins is by lending them out and being repaid in the currency. Lending can take three forms – direct lending to someone you know; through a website which facilitates peer-to-peer transactions, pairing borrowers and lenders; or depositing bitcoins in a virtual bank that offers a certain interest rate for Bitcoin accounts. Some such sites are Bitbond, BitLendingClub, and BTCjam. Obviously, you should do due diligence on any third-party site.
Bitcoins From Gambling
It’s possible to play at casinos that cater to Bitcoin aficionados, with options like online lotteries, jackpots, spread betting, and other games. Of course, the pros and cons and risks that apply to any sort of gambling and betting endeavors are in force here too.
Investing in Bitcoins
There are many Bitcoin supporters who believe that digital currency is the future. Those who endorse it are of the view that it facilitates a much faster, no-fee payment system for transactions across the globe. Although it is not itself any backed by any government or central bank, bitcoin can be exchanged for traditional currencies; in fact, its exchange rate against the dollar attracts potential investors and traders interested in currency plays. Indeed, one of the primary reasons for the growth of digital currencies like Bitcoin is that they can act as an alternative to national fiat money and traditional commodities like gold.
In March 2014, the IRS stated that all virtual currencies, including bitcoins, would be taxed as property rather than currency. Gains or losses from bitcoins held as capital will be realized as capital gains or losses, while bitcoins held as inventory will incur ordinary gains or losses.
Like any other asset, the principle of buying low and selling high applies to bitcoins. The most popular way of amassing the currency is through buying on a Bitcoin exchange, but there are many other ways to earn and own bitcoins. Here are a few options which Bitcoin enthusiasts can explore.
Risks of Bitcoin Investing
Though Bitcoin was not designed as a normal equity investment (no shares have been issued), some speculative investors were drawn to the digital money after it appreciated rapidly in May 2011 and again in November 2013. Thus, many people purchase bitcoin for its investment value rather than as a medium of exchange.
However, their lack of guaranteed value and digital nature means the purchase and use of bitcoins carries several inherent risks. Many investor alerts have been issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and other agencies.
The concept of a virtual currency is still novel and, compared to traditional investments, Bitcoin doesn't have much of a long-term track record or history of credibility to back it. With their increasing use, bitcoins are becoming less experimental every day, of course; still, after eight years, they (like all digital currencies) remain in a development phase, still evolving. "It is pretty much the highest-risk, highest-return investment that you can possibly make,” says Barry Silbert, CEO of Digital Currency Group, which builds and invests in Bitcoin and blockchain companies.
Bitcoin Regulatory Risk
Investing money into Bitcoin in any of its many guises is not for the risk-averse. Bitcoins are a rival to government currency and may be used for black market transactions, money laundering, illegal activities or tax evasion. As a result, governments may seek to regulate, restrict or ban the use and sale of bitcoins, and some already have. Others are coming up with various rules. For example, in 2015, the New York State Department of Financial Services finalized regulations that would require companies dealing with the buy, sell, transfer or storage of bitcoins to record the identity of customers, have a compliance officer and maintain capital reserves. The transactions worth $10,000 or more will have to be recorded and reported.
Although more agencies will follow suit, issuing rules and guidelines, the lack of uniform regulations about bitcoins (and other virtual currency) raises questions over their longevity, liquidity, and universality.
Security Risk of Bitcoins
Bitcoin exchanges are entirely digital and, as with any virtual system, are at risk from hackers, malware and operational glitches. If a thief gains access to a Bitcoin owner's computer hard drive and steals his private encryption key, he could transfer the stolen Bitcoins to another account. (Users can prevent this only if bitcoins are stored on a computer which is not connected to the internet, or else by choosing to use a paper wallet – printing out the Bitcoin private keys and addresses, and not keeping them on a computer at all.) Hackers can also target Bitcoin exchanges, gaining access to thousands of accounts and digital wallets where bitcoins are stored. One especially notorious hacking incident took place in 2014, when Mt. Gox, a Bitcoin exchange in Japan, was forced to close down after millions of dollars worth of bitcoins were stolen.
This is particularly problematic once you remember that all Bitcoin transactions are permanent and irreversible. It's like dealing with cash: Any transaction carried out with bitcoins can only be reversed if the person who has received them refunds them. There is no third party or a payment processor, as in the case of a debit or credit card – hence, no source of protection or appeal if there is a problem.
Insurance Risk
Some investments are insured through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. Normal bank accounts are insured through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to a certain amount depending on the jurisdiction. Bitcoin exchanges and Bitcoin accounts are not insured by any type of federal or government program.
Risk of Bitcoin Fraud
While Bitcoin uses private key encryption to verify owners and register transactions, fraudsters and scammers may attempt to sell false bitcoins. For instance, in July 2013, the SEC brought legal action against an operator of a Bitcoin-related Ponzi scheme.
Market Risk
Like with any investment, Bitcoin values can fluctuate. Indeed, the value of the currency has seen wild swings in price over its short existence. Subject to high volume buying and selling on exchanges, it has a high sensitivity to “news." According to the CFPB, the price of bitcoins fell by 61% in a single day in 2013, while the one-day price drop in 2014 has been as big as 80%.
If fewer people begin to accept Bitcoin as a currency, these digital units may lose value and could become worthless. There is already plenty of competition, and though Bitcoin has a huge lead over the other 100-odd digital currencies that have sprung up, thanks to its brand recognition and venture capital money, a technological break-through in the form of a better virtual coin is always a threat.
Bitcoin's Tax Risk
As bitcoin is ineligible to be included in any tax-advantaged retirement accounts, there are no good, legal options to shield investments from taxation.

Here is why your "technical analysis" is completely useless and pointless.

I've seen so many "TAs" posting their analysis here or youtube, blogs and some have even made it to the news.
One thing to understand is that Technical Analysis relies on historical trade data to be accurate. Traditional Charting software is built to filter out anomalies such as outlier spikes or in case of stocks to adjust for splits. So, historical data needs to be accurate.
The crypto market is unregulated so it has been manipulated since the very near beginning. Here is an example of the infamous Wolong boasting about his pump&dump scheme. He/They even released their own coin Pandacoin (one of many with the same name) purely to pump and dump. Wolong "recruited" people to join his pump and dump schemes at a cost, people would join his secret mail list and IRC meetings. They pumped and dumped various coins for at least 2 years that I kept track off.
He/They were very likely not the only ones, and after Wolong boasted openly other groups formed, some of them with really deep pockets. here are few samples of requests to join such groups sent to me in reddit edit: 2nd message is my reply as the perpetrator had deleted his account already.
So, the point is cryptos have been manipulated all along, from the most popular down to the shitcoins. Major movements in cryptos are not largely influenced with what was on the news, if there was a hack or some new tech was introduced or some regulatory decision... the manipulators are the ones directing the movements. So using "historical data" to do any technical analysis is useless and pointless. The only thing they are good for is to rile up people into an expectation that manipulators can use one way or another.

Market Analysis: Bitcoin (BTC) Drops Below Critical $3,900 Level, All Major Cryptocurrencies Down More Than 10%, Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), EOS, Cardano (ADA), IOTA, and Monero (XMR) Down 15 Percent
Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped $430 (11 percent) to $3,590, placing it well below the critical $3,900 level. $3,900 has been the level to watch since that was the price of Bitcoin when the December futures contract expired on CME and is likely the level where CME Bitcoin futures traders took out their positions for the month.
Bitcoin (BTC) has faced stiff resistance at the $3,900 level multiple times this month but managed to go above it the past few days after a short squeeze, which was likely caused by Bitfinex temporarily closing down for server migration. Now, however, Bitcoin (BTC) is back below this key level.
This suggests that CME Bitcoin futures traders largely went short for January. A past Crypto.IQ article details how CME Bitcoin futures expiration dates have a strong connection to Bitcoin’s price behavior.

Although this is the biggest Bitcoin (BTC) price plunge yet of 2019, several other major cryptocurrencies are doing worse and are down more than 15 percent including Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Cardano (ADA), IOTA, EOS, and Monero (XMR).
This breaks a month-long rally for Ethereum (ETH), Tron (TRX), and Litecoin (LTC), which saw gains of 90 percent, 165 percent, and 75 percent respectively before today’s price drop. Ethereum (ETH) had been rallying on speculation regarding the Constantinople hard fork, coming less than a week from now, since the fork will lower the Ethereum inflation rate by slashing block rewards from three ETH to two ETH. There will also be several new features implemented such as better developer tools and lower transaction fees.
The slashing of block rewards and the decision to implement ProgPoW which makes ASICs far less efficient may cause a battle between Ethereum miners and developers. Crypto.IQ speculated that the Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople fork could result in similar tension to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fork in November 2018.
If this prediction is accurate, a crash in Ethereum’s (ETH) price may ensue. Perhaps the amplified Ethereum (ETH) price drop overnight is due to uncertainty about what will happen when the Constantinople fork launches in less than a week.
Notably, Ripple (XRP) has now taken the number two spot on CoinMarketCap since Ripple (XRP) is “only” down 10 percent today while Ethereum (ETH) is down 15 percent.
Dogecoin (DOGE) has shown resilience today and is only down seven percent. It has been observed that Dogecoin (DOGE) is less severely impacted by broad price drops in the crypto-space. This is possibly due to Dogecoin (DOGE) having a strong community and simultaneously not being a common choice for speculators.
Many more cryptocurrencies than those mentioned in this analysis are down 10 percent or more, and $15.5 billion (11.2 percent) was slashed from the total crypto market cap overnight. Currently, the total crypto market cap is $123 billion, which is still well above the bear market low of $100 billion that we saw during mid-December 2018 when Bitcoin (BTC) hit $3,120 on Bitstamp.
It is too soon to say a bottom is in for the crypto market, and if short sellers on CME really are in control this month, as data suggests, then it is possible Bitcoin (BTC) will decline further this month. A re-testing of bear market lows near $3,100 is not out of the question.

Market Analysis: Bitcoin (BTC) Encounters Strong Resistance at $3,700 Level During Rally, Crashes To $3,500. All Major Cryptocurrencies in the Red

Market Analysis: Bitcoin (BTC) Encounters Strong Resistance at $3,700 Level During Rally, Crashes To $3,500. All Major Cryptocurrencies in the Red
Over the last 48 hours, the crypto markets have returned to a state of turbulence after several days of stable conditions.
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) rapidly rallied from $3,630 to $3,775 on Jan. 19. The entire rally lasted less than 30 minutes, suggesting it was fueled by automated trading bots responding to a short squeeze.
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) then stabilized towards the $3,700 level, which has been a dominant resistance level since Jan. 10. Today, Bitcoin (BTC) crashed from $3,700 to $3,470 and has since then recovered to $3,530. Overall, Bitcoin (BTC) is down four percent in the past 24 hours.
It is apparent that $3,500 is the support level to watch and $3,700 is the key resistance level, and these levels have been dominant for 10 days. It is possible that today’s crash is related to the CME Bitcoin futures contract expiration on Jan. 25.
It is generally observed that Bitcoin’s (BTC) price declines in the days leading up to a CME futures contract expiration. This is due to a practice called banging the close, where futures traders manipulate an asset to crash right before expiration in order to increase short-selling profits.
Certainly, January has been dominated by short sellers, with short positions likely taken out at the $3,900 level just after the December futures contract expired.
All other major cryptocurrencies are down today. Ripple (XRP) is down 3.3 percent; Ethereum (ETH) is down 4.2 percent; Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is down 5.5 percent; Bitcoin SV (BSV) is down 2.8 percent; EOS is down 4.7 percent; Stellar (XLM) is down 3.3 percent; Litecoin (LTC) is down five percent; Tron (TRX) is down 1.8 percent; IOTA is down 4.8 percent; Monero (XMR) is down 4.2 percent; Dash is down 5.9 percent; and Dogecoin (DOGE) is down 1.7 percent.
Dogecoin (DOGE) continues to show robustness in the face of broad crypto space declines with much less of a loss than other major cryptocurrencies today.
Ethereum (ETH) will likely continue to face turbulence in the coming weeks due to the Constantinople hard fork scheduled for late February. The fork is perhaps more unpopular than ever due to the fork being delayed as well as an accidental chain split.
The total cryptocurrency market cap has decreased to $120 billion, still 20 percent above bear market lows set in mid-December. Bitcoin (BTC) and the rest of the crypto market are only one crash away from retesting bear market lows, and a crash is quite possible considering the weakness in the Ethereum (ETH) market and the coming CME Bitcoin futures contract expiration on Jan. 25.

Daily Market Analysis: Mini Bitcoin (BTC) Rally Stomped Out; Litecoin (LTC) and Tron (TRX) Rally

Daily Market Analysis: Mini Bitcoin (BTC) Rally Stomped Out; Litecoin (LTC) and Tron (TRX) Rally
Things got a tad exciting today during the morning hours, Eastern time, with the price of Bitcoin (BTC) steadily surging from $3,975 to $4,112 on Bitstamp, which is the highest Bitcoin price of 2019 so far.
It seemed like perhaps Bitcoin was finally leaving that key resistance level of $3,900 in the dust, but the mild euphoria did not last for long. Bitcoin came back down to Earth, and is oscillating close to the $4,000 level as of this writing at 6 p.m. EST.
It looks like Bitcoin cannot escape the gravity of the $3,900 level, which is possibly the level where Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Bitcoin futures traders placed their short bets.
That’s because $3,900 was the price of Bitcoin after the December 2018 contract expired. Certainly the $3,900 level is a key point of interest this month. If Bitcoin crosses back below $3,900 a more significant drop could follow. If Bitcoin persists above $3,900 and rallies beyond $4,000, then perhaps this month could be a rally after all.
The total cryptocurrency market cap surged from $134.5 billion to $138.5 billion during today’s mini rally and currently sits near $136 billion. Therefore, today is a slight up day for the crypto market. Litecoin (LTC) and Tron (TRX) lead the way with 4 percent and 12 percent increases, respectively. EOS is the only other major cryptocurrency that is up today with a one percent increase.
In the past month, Litecoin has rallied from $23 to $40 (74 percent), and Tron (TRX) has rallied from 1.27 cents to 2.65 cents (109 percent). During the same period of time, Bitcoin (BTC) has rallied from $3,120 to $4,000 (28 percent).
Major cryptocurrencies that have declined today include Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Ripple (XRP) with losses of less than one percent. Bitcoin SV (BSV), IOTA, and Dash are down two percent.
Ethereum Classic (ETC) declined 10 percent yesterday on the news that a 51 percent attack occurred. Despite more information today revealing that 15 separate attacks happened, and $1.1 million of double spends have occurred, Ethereum Classic (ETC) has been quite stable. The Ethereum Classic (ETC) debacle may be dragging down Ethereum (ETH) slightly as well since the 51 percent attacks have sparked debates in both communities over whether ASIC miners should be banned.
Overall, today was a bit underwhelming and perhaps depressing since the attempt at a Bitcoin (BTC) rally ended up getting squashed. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) going up 1,000 points in the past 4 days is possibly making it harder for Bitcoin (BTC) to rally. If the stock market continues to show signs of strength, stock traders will not use Bitcoin (BTC) as a safe haven asset. The DJIA is 2,000 points above lows set on Christmas Eve, overriding many economic parameters and defying analysis that perhaps suggested a big stock crash was imminent.

Market Analysis: Crypto Market Down Slightly Following VanEck SolidX Bitcoin ETF Cancellation; Jan. 25 CME Futures Expiration Likely Suppressing Bitcoin’s Price
Bitcoin (BTC) attempted a rally this morning from $3,580 to $3,620, but downward pressure kicked in, and Bitcoin declined back to $3,580. In the afternoon, news broke that the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin exchange traded fund (ETF) had been withdrawn, meaning there will be no Bitcoin ETF for the foreseeable future. This announcement coincided with a downward movement to $3,520, but now Bitcoin has recovered to $3,550 as of this writing.
Overall, Bitcoin is down one percent on the day, and several major cryptocurrencies have followed Bitcoin downwards. Ripple (XRP) is down 1.3 percent, Ethereum (ETH) is down 1.6 percent, EOS is down 1.4 percent, Stellar (XLM) is down 2.2 percent, Bitcoin SV (BSV) is down 0.6 percent, IOTA is down 3.5 percent, Monero (XMR) is down 2.4 percent, Dash is down 1.6 percent, and Dogecoin (DOGE) is down 0.8 percent.
Not all major cryptocurrencies are down today ho, ever. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is up 2.2 percent, Litecoin (LTC) is up 0.3 percent, and Tron (TRX) is up 0.9 percent. The bears have won the day though, and the total crypto market cap has declined from $121 billion to $119.5 billion. Most of this market cap decline happened following the news that the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin ETF had been withdrawn.
The fact that the $3,500 Bitcoin support level is holding strong despite this negative ETF news may be a bullish indicator. The $3,500 level has been in place since Dec. 19 and may be a sign that a bottom is forming. Further, the CME and CBoE Bitcoin futures markets are experiencing backwardation, meaning people are paying more to get Bitcoin now rather than later, which can be a bullish sign. Also, the Wyckoff chart suggests a bottom will be happening right around the beginning of February.
One major factor that may be suppressing a Bitcoin and crypto rally is the CME Bitcoin futures expiration on Jan. 25. It is clear that futures traders took out short positions at $3,900 at the beginning of the month, and it will be hard for Bitcoin to rally until the expiration is done, since usually Bitcoin declines into the expiration on months where traders went short.
The fact that $3,500 is holding strong right before the CME expiration is a positive sign since it may mean that short selling cannot push the market lower. This would mean that, in February, CME Bitcoin futures traders — and other futures traders — could go long which could spark a rally. It will take up to a week after the Jan. 25 expiration to know for sure which way futures traders are betting, however.

Market Analysis: Major Cryptocurrencies In The Red after Cryptopia Hack and Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople Delay

Market Analysis: Major Cryptocurrencies In The Red after Cryptopia Hack and Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople Delay
The crypto space has been plagued by bad news today.
In the early morning, it was revealed that Cryptopia had been hacked and may be shut down long term. There are some allegations that this is an exit scam rather than a hack. Cryptopia had been used as the main exchange for numerous small-cap altcoins, and this hack may be a critical blow to such coins.
The panic from multiple different small-cap cryptocurrencies collapsing due to the loss of Cryptopia has been enough to tinge the entire crypto space with negativity. The total crypto market cap declined from $124 billion to $122.5 billion throughout the day after the Cryptopia news broke, with Bitcoin (BTC) declining from $3,670 to $3,630.
Then things got worse.
Ethereum’s (ETH) dev team delayed the Constantinople hard fork indefinitely due to a critical security bug. This delay comes only a day before the scheduled deployment of the fork. This creates a confusing situation where users who were urged to upgrade to Constantinople must now upgrade again to get rid of Constantinople.
There is fear, uncertainty, and doubt throughout the Ethereum (ETH) community, and the integrity of the fork’s code is being called into question. Already the Constantinople fork was to be tension filled due to the disenfranchisement of miners, and this delay may inflame the situation and make a negative outcome more likely.
After news broke of the critical security bug in Constantinople and the subsequent delay, Ethereum (ETH) quickly dropped from $130 to $120 (8 percent). Bitcoin (BTC) quickly dropped from $3,630 to $3,530 but has since recovered to $3,575. The total cryptocurrency market cap declined another $2 billion to $120.5 billion, down $4 billion (3.2 percent) on the day.
All other major cryptocurrencies are down as well today. Ripple (XRP) is down two percent, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is down four percent, Bitcoin SV (BSV) is down five percent, EOS is down three percent, Stellar (XLM) is down three percent, Litecoin (LTC) is down four percent, Tron (TRX) is down three percent, Monero (XMR) is down two percent, Dash is down four percent, and Dogecoin (DOGE) is down three percent.
The CBoE Bitcoin futures contract expiration is tomorrow Jan. 16, and although a less significant event than the CME Bitcoin futures contract expiration, it could also be a force behind today’s Bitcoin (BTC) price decline.
The fallout from the Cryptopia hack and Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople fork delay will likely result in additional negative market fallout over the next day. We’ll be watching and reporting.

Market Analysis: Bitcoin (BTC) Slowly Rising Today; Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), and Dash (DASH) Rally

Market Analysis: Bitcoin (BTC) Slowly Rising Today; Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), and Dash (DASH) Rally
Bitcoin (BTC) has slowly risen from $3,525 just after midnight eastern United States time to $3,575 currently, up 0.9 percent in the past day. Earlier this afternoon Bitcoin (BTC) almost hit $3,600. It appears any moves past $3,600 quickly fizzle out, and the $3,600 resistance level has been in place since Jan. 20.
The support level for Bitcoin (BTC) is $3,500 and has been in place since Dec. 19. Thus, Bitcoin (BTC) has currently stabilized in a narrow trading range between $3,500 and $3,600.
For the most part, other major cryptocurrencies have followed Bitcoin’s (BTC) slow upward trend today. Ripple (XRP) is up 0.9 percent, Ethereum (ETH) is up 0.4 percent, EOS is up 0.9 percent, Stellar (XLM) is up 0.2 percent, Tron (TRX) is up 1.7 percent, IOTA is up 0.3 percent, and Dogecoin (DOGE) is up one percent.
Some cryptocurrencies have rallied more strongly today. Litecoin (LTC) is up three percent, Monero (XMR) is up 3.6 percent, and Dash (DASH) is up 4.2 percent. Overall the total crypto market cap has risen from $119 billion to $120.5 billion through the day.
The only losers on the day are Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV) which are down 1.5 percent and 0.8 percent respectively.
The CME Bitcoin futures expiration is tomorrow, and this will perhaps be a fresh start for the crypto market. It is likely that CME Bitcoin futures traders largely took out short positions at $3,900 after the December futures expiration, and this short selling pressure may be inhibiting all of the attempted rallies during January so far.
There is strong support at $3,500 for Bitcoin (BTC). The negative news that the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin ETF had been withdrawn was not able to drop Bitcoin (BTC) below $3,500, despite Bitcoin (BTC) sitting close to that level when the news broke. It would probably be risky for CME futures traders to go short on Bitcoin (BTC) again in February. Therefore, it is possible they will go long, and if that happens, a significant rally would take place in February. However, it will take up to a week after the CME Bitcoin futures expiration tomorrow to ascertain whether CME futures traders have collectively gone short or long for February.

Market Analysis: All Major Cryptocurrencies Up 4-10 Percent, Tron (TRX) Rallies 15 Percent

Market Analysis: All Major Cryptocurrencies Up 4-10 Percent, Tron (TRX) Rallies 15 Percent
The crypto market has been like a rollercoaster the past couple of days. Yesterday, Bitcoin (BTC) plunged from $3,620 to $3,500 in less than 30 minutes, and today, Bitcoin rallied from $3,530 to $3,670 in about an hour.
Afterward, the price of Bitcoin slowly increased to $3,700 but has now dropped a bit and is near $3,660 as of this writing. This represents a four percent gain for Bitcoin (BTC) in the past day. Other major cryptocurrencies have done even better.
Ripple (XRP) is up five percent; Ethereum (ETH) is up 10 percent; Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is up six percent; Bitcoin SV (BSV) is up five percent; EOS is up nine percent; Stellar (XLM) is up five percent; Dash is up five percent; Dogecoin (DOGE) is up four percent; and Litecoin (LTC) is up six percent. IOTA, which is the number one directed acyclic graph (DAG) cryptocurrency is up five percent. The privacy coins Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC) are both up six percent.
The biggest success story of the day is Tron (TRX) with a 15 percent rally. Tron (TRX) has truly been on a rollercoaster this past month with a 170 percent price increase followed by a 36 percent price drop, and now today’s rally. Today’s price action could possibly be a double peak, which is common when speculative bubbles pop. Yesterday it was speculated that the current Tron (TRX) market may turn into a pump and dump.
The rallies of all major cryptocurrencies have caused an increase in the total cryptocurrency market cap from $117 billion to $123.5 billion (5.5 percent). Currently, the cryptocurrency market cap is almost exactly the same as it was before yesterday’s crash. Therefore, today’s price action has simply recovered yesterday’s losses.
Ethereum (ETH) is perhaps back to rally mode because of speculation that the Constantinople hard fork coming in less than a few days will be a good thing for Ethereum (ETH) since it slashes the inflation rate and lowers transaction fees. Ethereum (ETH) has gained ground on Ripple’s (XRP) market cap and is only $300 million away from re-taking the number two spot, whereas yesterday Ethereum (ETH) was $900 million behind Ripple (XRP).
Miners are the ones losing out from the slashing of the Ethereum (ETH) inflation rate, i.e. the block reward, from three Ether to two, and tension between miners and developers may cause price turbulence for Ethereum (ETH) and ERC-20 tokens in the coming weeks. Numerous cryptocurrencies in the top 100 on CoinMarketCap are ERC-20 tokens.
Perhaps an event that could influence the crypto market in coming days is the Bitcoin futures expiration on the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBoE) on Jan. 16. January appears to be a month dominated by short sellers, so perhaps short sellers on CBoE will bang the close and cause Bitcoin’s (BTC) price to decline right before expiration to increase their short-selling profits.
$3,900 continues to be the level to watch since that is likely where Bitcoin futures traders on CME took out their monthly short positions. Bitcoin (BTC) has some freedom to go upwards before encountering strong resistance at that level. As the Jan. 25 CME Bitcoin futures expiration approaches, the chance of a Bitcoin (BTC) price drop becomes more likely.

Here's why I predict Dogecoin will increase 20x in the next 2-3 weeks...

It's an arbitrary number, but I believe Dogecoin will increase substantially in value over the next couple of weeks. It's meaningless, but I predict Doge will go up to USD 0.025 per coin in the next 2-3 weeks.
Reason 1: The number of transactions the last 24 hours for Dogecoin: 5,471. The number of transactions for Bitcoin: 2,538. This is very surprising, especially considering many are hoarding Dogecoins, expecting the value to go up. I am assuming that a greater % are hoarding Dogecoins than Bitcoins.
Reason 2: Now take a look at the following chart (select "3 months" on the right) and let me know if that doesn't get you excited: People are sending nearly as much DOGE as Bitcoin!
As of this writing, in the past 24 hours people have send USD $194,478,411 worth of Dogecoin and USD $420,470,695 worth of Bitcoin. That's nearly 50% as much. But Bitcoin has a market cap of 16,200% more than Dogecoin.
Reason 3: As of Jan 30, people can now purchase Dogecoins with USD or CAD without having to buy Bitcoin first. VaultofSatoshi was the first to offer it but more exchanges should be allowing it soon. The big question is how many of the above Bitcoin transactions were people wanting to purchase Dogecoins?
Reason 5: As more people want to participate in Bitcoin they will discover Doge. Bitcoin is seen as "expensive" whereas Dogecoin is seen as very cheap. For USD $1 you can pick up hundreds of Dogecoins.
Reason 6: As more merchants use Bitcoin they will look to alternatives where the confirmation time isn't as much. (Bitcoin's confirmation time is 600% longer than Dogecoin)
Reason 7: Dogecoin will have 3,000x more coins than Bitcoin. But Bitcoin is 550,000x more expensive than Dogecoin, per coin. That's still a multiple of about 180x if there were just as many coins.
This is not a market analysis by any means, and I'm sure some of my math is off but I think you get the idea.

Dogecoin Analysis - II

Dear fellow shibes,
I´m glad to see so many of you have participated in the discussion to my last post. Today I want to continue dogecoin analysis with the second part.
As I mentioned last week, we stood at a critical point for the dogecoin price, because of a very low trade volume. But then the volume increased rapidly the last seven days, which had the effect of a higher volatility and a rising price.
But why did this suddenly happen? From my point of view the bitcoin troubles caused by Mt.Gox (as I already wrote last week halfening was priced in already so it did not impact the price) definitely were the reason. The problems they have with their withdrawal system scared many bitcoin investors, and led to panic. A lot of bitcoiners sold their btc portfolio to minimize risk. This sort of created a negative spiral and led to a price of 650 USD per btc (atm). And that is why dogecoin did a small leap towards the moon during the last days. The bitcoiners sold their btc and bought other major altcoins instead. You can see this by looking at the traded volume in currencies like doge, ppc, ltc, nmc,… on the 10. and 11. of February. The negative correlation to btc and the function as a save heaven helped dogecoin increase its value. But due to this sudden spike many shibes wanted to safe their profit and already sold their doges, which got us back to 220 satoshi (right now). But please don’t worry. That is a complete normal market reaction and I think if we can hold a level between 160 and 200 satoshi everything should be fine. ( In the picture you can see the three week candle stick (2h) chart of doge/btc. The first indicator beneath is the volume and the second the RSI (Relative strength index) or also called stochastic. I drew the Fibonacci retracements in the chart combined with three trend lines, Fibonacci Fans and two moving averages (one fast, one slow).
There also is another point I want to talk about. Last week I heavily discussed the crypto topic with some other investment bankers. I also read a research paper written by an JP Morgan senior analyst about cryptos. It is very nice to see that other big banks care about this topic, too. And they all think alternate coins are a very brilliant idea. But there also are some problems: They mentioned points like money laundering, the missing acceptance in stores and a generally low trade volume. A Managing Director also wishes to trade instruments like CFDs or Options on altcoins. But the main problem clearly is the missing acceptance of altcoins. If we are able to spread the acceptance of especially dogecoin as a payment method in very much shops around the world (and definitely on the moon), more and more shibes would use doges to pay their goods and the doge community would grow faster than it already does. We are on a very good way right now and we also couldn´t do all that over night (perhaps if we start the skyrocket). A very nice step would also be to convince Amazon or Google to have their merchandise paid in doge or perhaps in bitcoin. That would make altcoins more popular and we would land on the moon sooner.
I´m looking forward to your thoughts

Draft of CGB Website's new text - Your Input Requested!


Greetings everyone. I am posting a draft of some of the sections of the new website. They are a work in progress and any input on this content or anything else you would like to see on the new site is appreciated! The website will be focusing on educating investors of all ability so that they can understand the crypto-currency markets and make wise decisions within them. Without this understanding, our markets will not be able to efficiently, and with confidence, allocate capital to the true pillars of this new economy.
Note: Most of my updates can be seen directly here. I expect to have this completed by the weekend so that we can hopefully have the new site up and running. Even once up, there will be lots of work to do to really perfect it.

While Cryptogenic Bullion shares many traits with Bitcoin such as fast global payments, decentralization, pseudo-anonymity, and non-reversible transactions, there are many improvements which allow CGB to more reliably store wealth. A critical requirement for storing wealth is a low inflation rate. Cryptogenic Bullion is a very rare exception in that it has nearly completed its volatile inflationary stage and settled into its maximum yearly inflation rate of 2%. It also allows prudent savers of Cryptogenic Bullion to earn up to 1.5% interest on funds left unspent in their wallets for at least 30 days.
Crypto-currencies are finding support among a massive and diverse range of participants. For newcomers, a visit to one of the following pages would be beneficial depending on your current level of understanding and intention. Cryptogenic Bullion emulate the properties of gold, a classic safe-haven asset, and also represents a part of the movement towards a more fair and honest system of money. For more details on why and how, see the Fundamental Knowledge section. To quickly learn more about the crypto-markets, see the Investor Brief section.

Fundamental Knowledge:
In order to understand the need for cryptographic currencies like Bitcoin and Cryptogenic Bullion, we must consider a number of fundamental challenges with our current financial system, and the solutions that cryptographic currencies provide. The world's currencies are referred to as debt-based fiat currencies because they are not backed by a physical asset like gold, and can burden up to 30 participants with debt for each actual dollar in reserve, creating the potential for bank runs. It helps to realize that when a credit card is used to purchase something, dollars are created , and when you pay it off, dollars are destroyed. This scheme is referred to as fractional reserve banking and can not happen in a digital currency system without the owner's knowledge because the supply is strictly controlled by a decentralized protocol.
We are beginning, as a society, to understand the dangers and inefficiencies found in centralized systems as corruptions and self destructive processes manifest themselves with no true remedy. As our society looks for answers, they are being found in technological advances which allow us to connect with each other in more meaningful ways which do not require a third party. Cryptographic currencies provide the convenience of cash, with neither the excessive centralized printing, nor the potential for censorship or sanctions which block the transmission of funds. A new economy is forming with various crypto-currencies attempting to fill different roles within the ecosystem. It is imperative that we capitalize these technologies through careful investment to allow for the necessary development which will enable them to be a major part of modern society. To quickly learn more about the crypto-markets, see the Investor Brief section.
Trust in crypto-currencies must begin with a basic understanding of how the system functions and how to use it. Technology has existed for decades now which allow us to verify that a message was signed by an individual. This authentication technology is now used to prove that the holder of a private wallet has sent funds form that wallet to another. Keeping this key secret is the responsibility of each participant and this responsibility is the price for the freedom enabled by cryptographic currencies. Every transaction that has ever occurred is recorded in a distributed ledger which proves the current balance of all wallets in order to validate further transactions. Blocks created every 60 seconds containing all of the new transactions are added to the top of the block chain and further serve to set all previous blocks in "cryptographic" stone. For more details on how CGB's decentralized protocols provide trusted security and honest money, see the Papers and Articles section.
In order to get a glimpse of what the future cryptographic currency ecosystem could look like we must accept that there are many different roles to fill, and it is difficult for one currency to efficiently fill all roles. A store of wealth, like Cryptogenic Bullion (CGB), must have a low inflation rate to preserve capital and reduce volatility. Stability can also be encouraged if the bearer is allowed to earn interest on savings stored unspent for a specified length of time. A currency, like Dogecoin (DOGE), must have a higher inflation rate to slightly exceed the adoption rate. This provides liquidity and encourages spending which furthers the expansion of the participant base. A market gateway, like Bitcoin (BTC), must also have a higher inflation rate to match adoption so that liquidity is maintained which enhances the access to each of its markets. The market gateway also insulates the cryptographic currencies and stores of wealth from the market fluctuations caused by volatile shifts in demand for fiat currencies vs. crypto-currencies as a whole. For more information on these dynamics, see the Market Fundamentals section.

MAD Doge - Market Analysis 2/5/2014 (Evening Edition) Charity and Tithing

Well, it's been a few days, so let's get the market stuff done quick!

We've got a bear market (Much ROAR)

Follow the Triangle Chart Pattern info only if you understand the analysis (Explanation)

As far as the pools are going, is still down due to a NTP DDOS attack, here's a link describing it Cloudflare Blog


With the recent DDOS, I'd recommend staying away from the larger pools since they might be instigating the DDOS, P2Pool is a great alternative, but the decision is ultimately up to you.


I'll test with a single graphics card to see if the "cheating" works.

Meat and Potatoes (Such Dinner)

TLDR: GIVE BRO (TLDR for our female audience, if any: Please give to the DogeCoin Foundation Charities, it changes lives daily!)

Definition from the Merriam Dogester Dictionary:

If you're a bit keyboard-shy, why don't you let me know if you would come to a party themed after this one: End of the World Celebration, we can easily get 50% of the stuff shown in the video, but would need to crowd-fund it to pay for the rest as well as find the "200" people necessary to throw it.
Admittedly, it would be a dry party since we can get extra money from the nearby University as an "alternative" event.
Any thoughts?
As always, SHIBE ON!

Want to share some of my bets with this awesome community!

Been lurking for a while, but finally made an account for sharing some of my bets. I've been trading and investing for about ten years. I mostly lost for the first five years, broke even for the following two, and have enjoyed significantly more success in the last three.
I use a combination of fundamental analysis (though not in the traditional sense of the word), chart reading (though I wouldn't call it technical analysis...I mostly use Google Finance), and gut feel.
I subscribe to a trend-following-like model of risk control. I make small bets with relatively tight stops and get stopped out frequently. When I'm right, I usually let the trade run for months or even years, and make significantly more in one trade than I lost in all the others.
My losing bets are too numerous to count, though usually unremarkable because they're small. Some of my biggest winning bets in the past few years have been long TSLA, long Bitcoin, long BLD calls, and short USO.
I'm up roughly 500% for the past 3 years (combined). I've been increasing my position size recently due to more consistent success and a larger account size.
Some of my current bets:
Long TLT calls, long GLD puts, long Bitcoin (with the occasional short trade), long SJCX (Storjcoin cryptocurrency), long Ripple (cryptocurrency), long XCP (Counterparty cryptocurrency), long Stellar (cryptocurrency). I think I still have some Dogecoins laying around somewhere too ;)
Happy to discuss any of my current bets, or general investing philosophy!

MAD Doge - Subscriber Only Updates - Diversify Efforts, Drop DOGE?

It's coming! The block halving is almost here and people are mining their pants off. What am I doing? I jumped the mining ship.
Before we dive into all this, I'll increase the suspense with a little news.

The Important Stuff

You're probably saying, "Why aren't you talking about the massive jump in DogeCoin pricing?!" but you might forget that there has not been that much of a jump. Realistically the price has only gone up 16% (in USD) The main reason we had the jump was due to the drop of BitCoin. DOGE / USD Short Chart
As far as the other news goes, the video (First Link) brings up some great perspectives. The idea is that due to BitCoins massive size and people invested in it, people would rather pay or help out themselves in order to fix the current problems. Depending on how the problems are fixed, we need to keep a keen eye on the developments. If the problems are fixed to a point where BitCoin becomes incredibly robust, we could see a spike of newcomers.
If you haven't joined us for previous topics, the skeletons we're talking about are the criminal rings involved with BitCoin, whether or not you've heard of the darkweb all you need to know is quite a bit of junk has been going on there and now there's active work to stop that. Thankfully most, if not all Shibes have clean paws regarding that.
I know a lot of people have big opinions about the lack of a cap on DogeCoin, but we need to learn from BitCoin, as wallets get lost and as people jump in and hope for a long-term investment, the currency can become artificially rare. Especially with the time frame for all the block halving until we're at the final number much shorter than most other coins. We need incentive to keep people mining and spending.

Why I jumped Rocket

Be Prepared for when the blocks halve, I have a few estimates of what is going to happen
If BitCoin does something crazy tomorrow, all bets are off.

The P.S.
