My trades were all confirmed in July. The missing amount is exactly 1 btc. Looking at the history again, I had 1 btc being transferred from my coinbase btc vault to my coinbase btc wallet initiated in late July and confirmed in early August.
I see that some of you are using Coinbase to buy crypto. Please stop doing that. Instead, use gdax (which is also owned by Coinbase, use same creds to login) to eliminate/significantly reduce broker fees. Coinbase is for normies and this ease of use comes at a price. There's a good reason Coinbase doesn't openly advertise this...
So seriously, when do you guys think this bubble is gonna burst? Throughout history it took other bubbles a while... Will it take at least 6 months? Altcoins are going up at over 20% / week, at this rate you need less than 6 months to turn $5K into $5M
Yep that's what I'm doing. Started about 4 months ago, 14k is about 70k now. Just sold 14k of btc and holding the rest, might sell some more at the year mark. Planning on hodling most of the gains for a couple of years. A lot of people are still getting into this so there is room for price increase
Agreed, however I think it'll be some time before the "bubble bursts", until then I think prices will keep rising. Also when the burst happens I think it's gonna be more of a correction in price as opposed to a complete meltdown. I'm keeping what I gained as a big gamble since this is new territory and if I turn out wrong I can make a ton more. If I turn out right, I will end up still making some money since I'm mainly playing with the "house money" at this point. I'm expecting the burst won't happen for a while. After starting in crypto I read about hodl and how people who didn't sell in dips and rises ended up making a ton in the long run. So I kept my btc even after price dropped about 30% at some point. My bet is many people will think like I did and just keep the money in there for a while. Net net it's a big gamble and money im willing to lose
The bubble has been supposed to burst for years now. Eventually it might but likelihood of it happening is low compared to likelihood it continues to rise. It’s not about calling the future, it’s about profiting from the EV. Risk $10k for a chance to make 2-10x. Plus, at this point bitcoin is starting to leak into the mainstream and this is only going to drive the price higher
It’s not mainstream yet. Not everyone is investing. There aren’t really any regulated bitcoin financial instruments (though futures just came out this month). Most people are still skeptical. But it’s starting to get there
Not a bug, pure market manipulation at its finest. Very wealthy individual tried to push the price up while liquidity is thin. Coinbase stopped the trading after 3 minutes. Some people got hurt really bad
Starting at a certain block on Aug 1 they started mining new blocks with a different protocol. So if you had unspent transaction outputs (bitcoin money) then you have BCH on this new fork. Both BCH and BTC kept mining blocks with different protocols (BCH has bigger blocksize). It’s funny cause it looks like you just got money out of thin air. In October or November there was yet another fork from BTC called Bitcoin Gold. (BCG). If you have bitcoin from before that timeframe you also have BTG. Since Coinbase doesn’t support it at the moment you’re not hearing too much about it. One BTG is about $490 as I’m typing this up right now. I have no idea what will happen going forward with that. It’s all pretty crazy right now. So entertaining!
It wasn't like this 4 months ago. Right now there is a huge influx of people trying to buy crypto and coinbase is their entry way. Coinbase probably wasn't anticipating such crazy influx of users and likely its server aren't ready to cope with the increased traffic yet. To me that's a sign prices will go up more as many users are setting their coinbase and funding it and trying to buy but were slowed down.
