  1. Come on guys, the volume of this entire bull run is laughable compared to 2017. All pumps appear exactly at the end of each major candle, we are in the third month of the pump with no cooldown. The whales are still in full control of this market. They dump a lot of BTC and then the public buys the price back up again for them because nobody likes to be still bearish after such a long time. The sentiment is so positive that it might be true because of this. It all started with a £1000 increase in just an hour or less. That was the signal that everybody decided that the bear market was over. And if enough people think that, it increases the chances of it happening. My only advice for investors and newbies is to take advantage of Mr. Menchaca Santiago a pro trader who is helping investors accumulate more bitcoin through his amazing trading strategy, with his program I went from having 3 Bitcoin to 9 Bitcoin in just 3 weeks. You can reach him on (santiagomenchaca230@Gmail or WhatsApp + 447480724121) for more assistance

  2. I'm not interested in Bitcoin. I agree completely. Leah says Tyler mined in 2011 and got Gox'd. Tyler says he's never owned bitcoin only GBTC. How does this chart work Leah? I agree completely. I've managed meelions of dollars. The DOW is going to won thouzan in 1990. I was wrong. I'll try to hide it even though it's in the Washington Post. Tyler says hyperwave has never been wrong at Unconfiscatable. I'm 100% sure. I'm 99.99% sure. I'm 99% sure. I'm 80% sure. I missed the bottom and bought the top. I'm Dean Tyler Jenks I agree completely. The DOW was going to won thouzan so Bitcoin is going to won thouzan. I beeleeve it's going to ten meelion even though I dont understand it but it has to touch won thouzan! This will be my redemption. I knew I was always right even though I was wrong and the Nasdaq was wrong but hyperwave has always been right. I miss the bottom and buy the top and call my hypothesis a theory because all these coursecucks don't know the difference and neither do I! I'm not interested! I agree completely! I did the same thing with gold! Buy my course on consensio, which is just percentages based on moving average I've already given away in the past and it's useless for something that moves as fast as bitcoin anyway! A tumbleweed rolls down the ghost town of Hyperrekt Clientville. I agree completely and I'm not interested until Bitcoin, the DOW, and gold all capitulate to won thouzan synchronously leading to my redemption. The only reason you are reading this is because of the world's leading expert on the random number generator and you can't tell I'm just as clueless as you are that will be won thouzan dollars payable to Mucid Investments so Leaaaahhhhhconneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeect can bake a loaf of bread with the Mrs. again!

  3. I have never commented on Tone Vays, because my comment would mean nothing. But I am driven to
    make note that someone who creates these kind of mythical thumbnail scenes featuring himself in armor and big scenes has got to have a TREMENDOUS ego and is obviously quite a legend in his own mind. He is a poster child for exaggerating his own importance, and it is hard to take someone like this seriously.

  4. Bakkt getting in super bearish, they already bought BTC OTC, actually this will bring the price down, only when they sell all their BTC stock we would maybe see any increase of price directly related to Bakkt, just see the most important indicator for traders, price action, and we are going down in a huge down trend with all indicator in red line, experience traders are in a no trade zone waiting for a move and all indicators are pointing strongly to a drop to 8.500$ at least!

  5. oh for gawds sake… Tone: "I just hate their business model…and I try to advise people not to buy it"
    The thing is… Their business model was not discussed here at all! So it's obvious to me that Tone has a pre-conceived negative opinion based on nothing…no facts. Just a knee-jerk reaction that this must be yet another useless shitcoin. Which I think is not the case here – though of course the project/company may very well crash and burn – no different than any other tech startup.

  6. Tone obviously did ZERO homework on Blockstack prior to this talk. If he did he would not be claiming Blockstack is trying to do what Ethereum did. There is a world of difference between the two projects and how they are implemented, the teams/founders, and the incentive structures – eg. the blockstack app store, and what the tokens are used for (not "gas").

  7. This is all b***** Bitcoin and crypto is supposed to allow everyone the opportunity to participate, this the same old BS! No advocacy for the little citizen to put his two cents in Win Lose or Draw!

  8. * Tone: "… it's useless.."
    Please explain why a platform is useless that allows easy programming of decentralized apps where the user controls their own data in direct opposition to the GAFAM gorillas (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft)
    * Of the apps already existing there is a decentralized word processor and email – just those two alone already make it far from useless to anyone who cares about keeping their data private.
    * they never did anything on Ethereum before. They built on top of the Namecoin blockchain which was found not to scale.
    They're currently built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain in a hybrid manner.
    FFS, if you're gonna dump/FUD a new project at least be half way informed about it.

  9. Tone: "…they're trying to get paid to build vaporware..". Vaporware by definition is fictitious software that does not yet exist. Not only is Blockstack's platform already launched and running for years, but there is already over 100 apps written and running on it with real users – if small in number at this time (though this is expected for a new project than the majority has never even heard of).

  10. Know what, Tone? I don't think you get what Blockstack did or is. The important part is you brought lawyers to explain the basics beyond cramming a couple pages of Wikipedia.
    Edit: WTF!? Tone, our planet has 4.5 billion years, not 5000. Heck, we even have more than 5000 years of written history.
