  1. So the answer to btc etf is "no". The etf will be rejected tomorrow because old senile tech-uneducated farts will waste everyone's time and/or deny it as long as they run the sec

  2. Gold EFT's are SO FUCKING STUPID. They completely defeat the purpose of owning gold. You can see how hard the guest has to work to defend them because even he knows they are shit.

  3. In just about 12 months, BTC has made a drop of over 80% from a peak of $19,800 to less than $4,000 and I wonder how silly those that kept talking of $100,000 and more look now. Seriously, how much more evidence do we need that cryptocurrencies are purely speculative bubbles that are best treated as such and milked at the moment? The only space for investing is in real companies doing actual business with real currency valuation. My forecast for the long-term value of bitcoin is 0$, 0€, 0£, 0¥. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a crypto hater, in fact, I am above average financially but I still have a strategy which I implement with which I make a minimum of $30,000 monthly for a couple of months already. Even though I get assistance from Mr. James Long with trade strategies and signals, I still trade on my own so I don’t have to grant anyone access to my trade account (funds). What I do is seek his opinion on the markets as he is a very seasoned analyst and trader and then I use his signals which are very simple to use in placing trades and in the process, I learn a lot from him. You can mail him** (jameslong241 @ Gmail. com) if you need his assistance too. A word of caution, never mix emotion with coins if you want to succeed and you have to be brutal as well i.e sell, buy, and trade when you have to follow the rules and always seek help if you are not already a master trader and are not making good and consistent profit on your own already.

  4. Don't support the banking cabal by buying there trash gold ETFs. If you want to buy gold.. buy the real thing! If you don't hold it, you don't own it! Same goes for Bitcoin. If you do not own your keys, there not your bitcoin! And I believe, we are not that far off from a world wide financial crash, perhaps even a reset.. and when this happens, only real assets will matter.

  5. Etf won't necessarily pump BTC. Whales can control price either way .they have been dumping all year with huge profits and probably leverage .now they made huge dolla gains and still have 1000's of BTC they can long and make even more. Bitcoin doesn't help lower class people !!

  6. Crypto will be atleast a 50 trillion asset class if not more. I mean it will literally replace EVERYTHING. Banks, institutions, dotcom companies.. everything think about it

  8. I can answer for van neck they pulled the application coz they cant rig it like gold write to many contract, 1 ounce of gold is 100 contract owner go do your research on gold silver derivatives. Lol. So basically etf wanted like fidelity will do backed by actual bitcoin. Remember if you dont own your private key you dont own your bitcoin. Gold silver its a great grandfather thing we live in a digital world mellenials will go shopping swipe and pay cellphone you think they will bring a pound of gold lol if can get your actual gold from tue contracts you buying lol. And by the time or you hold actual gold can you sell it on a market price? That if that person wanted to keep gold lol only lepricon do it did i spell lepricon right lol do your own research. Good luck. Oh one more thing does any one notice how many people attened classic xar auction lately i know some old folks passed already

  9. The intrinsic value of bitcoin is 0,00 US$ or €.
    Buy cause losing money is the best way to learn.
    BTW why is China buying so much Gold bars? Think about that subject.
    Bitcoin is only speculation object and not a pay system anymore!
