I don't think it will fall much more: going do 20k at such a speed was obviously an overreaction but money still flow into crypto. Besides major exchanges are now building up institutional sales teams so might be more big players in the games soon.

Miners' costs are in the range of 4500 (extremely dodgy ones) to 4900-5500 ("legit" ones). That explains why we don't go much lower than 6000.
Is that possible that a number of countries completely ban cryptocurrencies? What's going to happen then?

Looking at this they cant or dont really want to ban it...

Anyone can explain actual value of bitcoin?

I think we discussed this here already - difficult to put a value on it...

'End of bitcoin? I keep hearing this more and more...'
maybe just end of some exchanges...
What a great dip and a crazy rebound!
Coincidently CBOE futures were expiring around the same time as the dip happened and trading volumes weren't that huge.
Any thoughts on that?

Rebound isn't that crazy...as someone who is relatively new to cryptocurrencies (have been following it for 6 months) any good online resources that you can recommend?

We came across this article and actually had someone asking us here if we are interested in doing ICO at some point. What do you guys think?

I think it’s a great idea as long as there is a strong developer base and a real mission to solve a problem with the ICO. Many pump and dump ICOs had a short run in 2017 and were clearly created as a Ponzi scheme (like bit connect). I would love to be an initial investor if this idea goes through! It would be a good addition for my senior thesis.

It does seem like an interesting idea! But what would you use it for?
Cardona (ADA) and Litecoin will be the biggest movers in 2018 in terms of technology and value. Mark my word.

Whats Cardona?
So there are Bitcoin futures on CME and CBOE now but so far it didn't affect existing crypto exchanges at all.
Any thoughts whether that might eventually happen?

Why exchanges? How should that impact the price?
Future contracts should be available for Bitcoin by 2018. Very interesting advancement.

I found this video which describes how Cryptocurrencies work if anyone is interested.

This is one of the best article I've ever read on Bitcoin technology and the engineering challenges it faces. It is a bit long but worth it :)

It looks like Bitcoin has reached $10,000. This happened sooner than I expected. I'm guessing there will be an abundance of sell orders in the near future which will lead to another correction. To infinity and beyond!

Seems like no end to this run - interesting to understand who are the buyers

I'm doing my senior thesis on cryptocurrency and began investing in July. From what I've read only 6% of cryptocurrency buyers are 21 and under

Well that's understandable because they don't have that much money. Another crazy day but looks like people are starting to sell. Is BTC the craziest thing to trade?
@Christian - getting close to your 10k prediction! Lets all throw in a number - mine is $8500 top for 2017
Link

Once again, it was just a prediction. However I do believe we will see 10k price point by December 31st.

This is fun guys - $8700 from RP team
Another thing I don't understand what is the value of all other cryptocurrencies? Can anyone create a currency now? Also based on the comment below shouldn't the creators of a currency have some way to support it to prevent speculation
Link

Value is what supply/demand justifies. Think about USD or gold for example.

And creators of each currency actually really want its speculation.
1 year ago
Thanks Nick but what is supply/demand in bitcoin? Gold had some industrial value?
1 year ago
There is a finite supply of 21m bitcoin, and the amount that can be mined halves every year.
So what's your prediction on where bitcoin is going to end up? Going to $25k?
Link

I believe it will reach 10k in 2017

Why 10k? Is there any economic explanation for the price?
1 year ago
There is no economic explanation for a lot of prices. For example gold.
10k is very likely IMHO
