Seriously I have no idea, and doubt anyone does. It's part of why I got out of crypto: Way too stressful.
LOL yeah. I have to say looking after my miners is like a second job...

i am serious.. all the top coin is doing the same.. litecoin has gone up 86% during November.. bitcoin is probably the best option to buy but litecoin looks good.. i have just bought $1500 quids worth..

looking at BTC its just about to go over the 12000 dollars mark.. it about 50 dollars off.. these round figures seem symbolic..

its gone too far to end now.. how it will end will be interesting.. he he..

my mining is hassle free.. the only downside being it aint mining fast enough.. hence me buying in more coin.. so far this month i am £1000 into ether and £1500 into litecoin.. my coinbase account limits the amount it lets me buy.. but the limit is going up..

my three month mining stash is at $3660 dollars.. or .33 bitcoin.. i doubt i will ever get a full one.. he he

hind sight tells me i should have spent the mining rig cash (£4000 ) on buying a whole bitcoin.. the $3660 stash i mentioned would be $12000 dollars.. mining has cost me money and not made me any but hind sight is a wonderful thing..

We saw a couple of mini crashes at 10 and 11k. When it hit 7k and 8k, it's normal for people to look toward that next milestone, and say "I'll sell at 10k." And then they do sell at 10k, causing a mini flood of supply, dropping price. We will probably see just as big or bigger "crashes" at 15 and 20k, with plenty of mini crashes at each 1k increment. The long term hodlers will win out in pure earnings. But eventually, you will have to sell or else you've got tons of essentially non-liquid assets. Nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that a bitcoin isn't like other nonliquid assets like land or houses... a bitcoin is worth nothing until it's sold. Sure you can buy some things with them, but this is an odd gray area. Is a bitcoin a currency or a security? As Trog said above, it would seem that spending would be crazy. But at the same time, once again, it has to be sold or spent to hold any value at all. Personally, I'm not much of a gambler. So I will take my small wins when I can. As long as the hodlers hodl, Bitcoin will hold its value. At the point that everyone decides to sell... game over. And we've already seen these mini crashes happen within minutes. If you hold all your bitcoin, watching it skyrocket, waiting for it to hit the moon... You're literally going to have minutes to get off the boat before it's sunk. It doesn't matter if it hits 50k or 100k or higher... If the big crash happens, it will be worth nothing in minutes.

The other side to that coin (pun intended) is... a smart person with a little taste for risk might start buying at that point... which drives the value back up. THAT is the only thing keeping Bitcoin afloat. Joe decides to sell, value drops. Jim sees the drop and a chance to get some cheap bitcoin and buys, driving price back up. The only question is how much faith people have in how far it can go.

buy the f-cking dip.. full faith and all in.. :)

the stock market is running along the same lines.. he he

i like the bitcoin blackhole theory.. bitcoin eventually sucks up all fiat investment money and we have a new monetary system.. whoops..

for me it aint about when it will end its more about how it could end..

I expect it to hit 50k just to spite notb's prediction that that's impossible.
I don't think I used the word "impossible".
But other than that... yeah - maybe I had too much faith in humanity. Or maybe not...? We'll see what happens.

Yea nicehash still down... for the "push button, get money" crowd, Minergate is a *decent* alternative for the meantime. I get slightly lower speeds with the GUI app than I do with nicehash, but it at least gets your machines doing work while Nicehash is down without having to set things up manually. Tweakers and min-maxers need not apply lol.

I think Nicehash has been down most of the day but I've no idea what has caused it. Something about a network error whenever I have tried to connect back to it, it errors on boot up of the program.. I'll mine ETC for now, I just wish the difficulty was down so I could get to the payout a load faster!! lol

This 0.25 a coin a day is a killer....

Minergate is a turn-key solution like nicehash. I recommend going with the console version, as I get slower rates using the GUI.

Hey Guys important update...



Official press release statement by NiceHash (self.NiceHash)

submitted 56 minutes ago by Andrej_ID - announcement

Unfortunately, there has been a security breach involving NiceHash website. We are currently investigating the nature of the incident and, as a result, we are stopping all operations for the next 24 hours.

Importantly, our payment system was compromised and the contents of the NiceHash Bitcoin wallet have been stolen. We are working to verify the precise number of BTC taken.

Clearly, this is a matter of deep concern and we are working hard to rectify the matter in the coming days. In addition to undertaking our own investigation, the incident has been reported to the relevant authorities and law enforcement and we are co-operating with them as a matter of urgency.

We are fully committed to restoring the NiceHash service with the highest security measures at the earliest opportunity.

We would not exist without our devoted buyers and miners all around the globe. We understand that you will have a lot of questions, and we ask for patience and understanding while we investigate the causes and find the appropriate solutions for the future of the service. We will endeavour to update you at regular intervals.

While the full scope of what happened is not yet known, we recommend, as a precaution, that you change your online passwords.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused and are committing every resource towards solving this issue as soon as possible.

But cryptocurrencies are so safe! Nooooo! Not possible!
:-D

There was a pretty large polish BTC exchange called Bitcurex. It went down last year after a supposed hack. They've been postponing the restart for a while and then vanished.
We have to keep in mind Nicehash is among the global leaders in this sector. But on the other hand: do you really know the company that keeps your money and so much private data? And which can - via it's app - run almost any code on your PC?
Do you know where their HQ is? Are they under jurisdiction of your state's authorities? Do they have a firewall? :)

Do Nicehash users know, that this company is registered in Slovenia? And that just 16 people on Linkedin identify as current employees? Exactly 1 of those 16 decided that his job is about system administration. He must be pretty loaded during a hack attempt. :-D

Would it really be worse if your bitcoin account was controlled by a global investment bank? Think about it.

That's the wonder of the blockchain. You are responsible for the security of your money. Not a bank, not an organization. If you left large amounts of currency in someone else's hands, that's your own fault. ALWAYS pull your money out into a paper wallet as soon as it's viable. (Obviously I know that you can't transfer every single tiny piece, it would cost too much in fees, and most places won't transfer less than a certain amount anyway.) I lost about 100 bucks. If you're leaving more than that in a third party wallet, you're wrong. If you keep your money in cold storage though, it's virtually unhackable.

This was a web wallet. Not a cryptocurrency wallet. You're basically saying that because the internet isn't safe, crypto isn't safe.

Exactly. I so need to write a guide on this... actually, I may do just that. It's easy as pie.

No, which is why that's where many withdraw their mining earnings.

If anyone is looking for a miner that pays well and is easy to use, there is a one-click VTC miner. I'm making double what I was getting mining ZEC due to the price jump of VTC. Such profitability will only last another 4 days though as the reward is set to halve then.

selling off on the way up has always been part of the story.. go up a few 100 dollars sell off.. take a profit and buy back in on the dip.. rinse and repeat..

whats very very unusual this time.. its going up too far and too f-cking fast without the profit taking sell offs and pauses for breath that have always been there..

its getting scary..

what go i do to mine that phil.. beyond NH i havnt a clue.. i am assuming NH is now dead..

or any other options you fancy.. ??

trog
To be honest Trog ETC and ETH seem to be so over difficult, my 6 480s mining ETC are hitting 117M/h at the moment and it's taking me 4 days to mine one coin... It sucks... I've 5 more coins to make and then that's it.. When Nicehash comes back up I'll switch back to that unless there's another I can use when I've finished the payout via ETC...

I take issue with this. If you had bought 0.004 of a bitcoin just since yesterday, you would have made $160.00. Since last month? More like a thousand.

Pic is outdated. ;)
