  • From scottmelker:

    Most of the people waiting to buy the “inevitable” #Bitcoin drop into the $20,000s will not buy anything if it happens, because they will be scared little pansies and will think it “has to go down to $15,000.”

  • From BitcoinMidas_:

    I’ll say this again – #bitcoin hashrate continues to decrease and yet the mempool is empty. This has been going on for a month at this point. Can’t be explained away by variance. How much of our tx volume had been Chinese mining pools colluding to increase fees?
