    Default Bitcoin Shortage - This is not a drill people!

    More and more people are trying to clamber onto the ladder in a desperate effort to join the rush. Ignore it. This going to be the mother of all corrections, not something you want before Christmas.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    In the last two corrections 0.1% of traders out there are sitting on a massive portfolios. They were first out the door and sold billions in one go. They're technical, cool headed and calculated. All we need now is the match..

    Surely a shortage will push it up in value?

    Bitcoin, the currency of choice for criminals. Just waiting for it to become the next big offshore (as in virtual) tax avoidance scheme: Drug dealers laundering their money at bitcoin ATMs, London police say - Business Insider Deutschland
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I think he is alluding to the fact that when long term holders of Bitcoin dump theirs the market will become flooded and the price will crash, its called a bubble bursting, there has been a few though out the years

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Exactly. Sorry if not clear. This has happened twice this year already. Someone is going to cash in big before Christmas. Probably JM Morgan

    Then a panic sale begins. I'll be waiting at the bottom with cash.
