Charting - BitMEX Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange

Dogecoin Buyers Club

Here is my verdict. Your mileage may vary. This is me thinking out loud so that you can make up your own mind. Don't hold me responsible for anything. So there's that.
The battle of dogecoin takes place at the btc-to-doge trade at Poloniex. Every other exchange is secondary. Short term.
Usually when dogecoin rises on Poloniex, shorters go to work lending dogecoin and sell, sell, sell into the buy wall ('Shorting', for short, is earning money by betting that dogecoin will lose value, and, on Poloniex, also to make it actually happen). Equally usual, the shorters enjoy the sudden influx of whale-size dogecoin amounts rushing in to help the shorters even more. The dogecoin blockchain tells this every time.
But yesterday the whale cavalry never came (not for 11 hours at least, had to nap after that). Easily seen by viewing every single block (true story) and its transaction numbers/amount ratio as it actually happened. I could, for most of the time, only spot happy shibes transferring non-disturbing amounts.
This is no rocket science, really, but manually viewing the blockchain is paramount in order to get past all the other fun-facts-but-worthless-statistics when it comes to shorter mitigation.
Currently the shorters are being stock raving mad about their shorts potentially failing. So they double down on their efforts. Throwing more and more money into this shorting carousel. Tripling down. Quadrupling down even. As it seems to me.
So. If you care to buy dogecoin using bitcoin. AND care for the dogecoin value to rise:
-Do it on Poloniex.
-Watch every block on the dogecoin blockchain. Get aquainted with the ratio between number of transactions and the grand total sum of every block.
-Play defense while online and monitoring your trades, by placing buy orders only.
-Remember to watch out for 2nd level verification at Poloniex. Maybe it is better to forget the notorious Poloniex hassle and only trade within the 1st level verification money limit.
-After buying dogecoin, get it the hell out of Poloniex. Exchanges are not your personal wallet for all eternity. Countless people lost their money that way.
-Don't lend your dogecoin to the shorters of Poloniex. Shorters are using it to decrease the dogecoin value, remember?
Lastly about the headline. 'Dogecoin Buyers Club' is a play with words referring to the film Dallas Buyers Club'. Referring to the fact that it is possible to work together in order to achieve something. In this case the proposal of buying dogecoin on Poloniex only.
You. Of course. Do whatever. Thanks.
Edit: Pro tip: Close the Poloniex trollbox while making strategic trading decisions. And after deciding, stick to what you decided. Wars are won before the battles.
Edit2: "To meet the increasing demands on support staff, the Trollbox has been disabled indefinitely and moderators have been reallocated to assist in support." Trollbox gone on Poloniex could mean that shorters must monitor dogecoin more closely for any movements. Moreover, if you are watching dogechain blocks, please click next block links, evaluate what you are experiencing, and finally refresh until 'None' turns into a link to a the latest created block.

If you've come here to post that you're worried about the price being down, please read this.

I'm seeing a lot of "Guys, the price is down, what are we going to do" posts.
Item #1: Look at Bitcoin's history. http://blockchain.info/charts/market-price?timespan=1year - Notice in April 2013, there was a spike, and then a drop. Notice all of the peaks and valleys. The trend has been undeniably upward, but everyone needs to understand that peaks and dips are absolutely the normal function of a trading market where some people are trying to sell high and some people are trying to buy low. To see a real trend, we need to look at averages. This is why "real" stock market graphs show 24hr, 7 day and 30 day trend lines. Because the averaged trends (signal) are more important than the day to day jitter.
Item #2: The Allegory of the Bank Run. It goes a bit like this. Someone about town, with 5 small banks, one bank closes for a day because they have trouble paying out funds. A customer of that bank spreads the rumor that there is going to be a bank run, meaning that everyone is going to withdraw their funds and the banks will become insolvent. In reaction to this rumor, the entire town withdraws all of their money from the other 4 banks, thereby causing a bank run - in reaction to an imagined impending bank run.
Right now the BIGGEST danger to Dogecoin is not day traders, trollbox preachers, or price manipulators. It's morale here, and this absolutely unfounded worry that a moderate dip in price which has been calculated in days.
Has anyone noticed that while Dogecoin has taken an underwhelming slight fall, Bitcoin has basically fallen from orbit? Bitcoin has crashed, Litecoin has crashed, and Dogecoin has "meh'd". We really need to see the silver lining here. ALL cryptos are down right now. Dogecoin isn't down that much by comparison. And people are getting nervous because we're not at 300 satoshis yet?
Come on folks. We were at 75 satoshis a few weeks ago. Let's temper our expectations and can the negativity because it can and WILL cause a feedback loop that will cause the market (which is inherently emotional) to react to the community's morale. It makes me worry about how shibes will react to the inevitable first REAL dogecoin crash. (It'll happen, and 'that too, shall pass'.)
There is no need to abort this mission AT ALL. Keep evangelizing Doge and the community. Keep using Doge, keep exchanging Doge, keep mining Doge and keep telling everyone you can about Doge.
When you worry about the price, channel that upset into doing something with Doge. Make a site. Talk to a business about accepting doge. Get a friend mining. Show a friend faucets.
Anything but rumination about insignificant jitter in the trend line. Because we are absolutely and undoubtedly still flying.

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 2

A little late, but as promised here is Part 2 of the Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and feedback in making these.
Link to Part 1
This time I also made a Google Docs survey in the hopes of sharing the results with the community. I thought we could share what we use as a whole and why redditors choose the exchanges they do. For skeptics (as you all should be), I assure you that I am not collecting personal information. This is for recreation and if you are still wary, then by all means abstain!

06 – Fiat Exchanges – South Korea

안녕하세요 여러분! 혹시 우리 한국인 친구 이 보고서를 한국어로 읽고 싶어한다면 알려주세요. 관심이 많이 있다면 간단한 한국어 보고서도 만들 수 있습니다. This year, ETH has taken off like a rocket in the Land of the Morning Calm. With a population of just 50 million, South Koreans account for almost 30% of daily ETH trade volume. Even more surprising is that currently the daily volume of ETH is about 5 times higher than that of Bitcoin on Korean exchanges. Since demand is high, ETH is trading at a premium on Korean exchanges. Some users have been talking about capitalizing off this imbalance by trading on arbitrage between exchanges. For those who have no connection to Korea and hope to do so, I have bad news – all Korean exchanges require a National ID number and access to a Korean bank account. This makes Korean exchanges virtually closed to Korean nationals and those with long-term visas. Sorry everyone.

Korbit

07 – Fiat Exchanges – China

With a great deal of anticipation, major Chinese exchanges started trading ETH this summer. Since these exchanges deal huge volumes of Bitcoin already, naturally it was expected that they invest heavily into ETH as well. So far this hasn’t quite lived up to the hype with many exchanges still favoring Bitcoin, Litecoin, Altcoins, and even Ethereum Classic (Gulp). Three of these exchanges underwent inspections by the Peoples Bank of China earlier this year and will be working closely with the government to ease fears of money laundering and market manipulation. There are a lot of Chinese sites, and since my Chinese is non-existent this list is basically just for name recognition. In many ways these sites are very similar in regards to security, verification, and fees compared to their western counterparts; just marketed at a different audience and currency. If users are seriously interested in these exchanges and making reviews, please contribute or ask!

Congratulations PARTICL team! - 16-04-2017 (PART/SDC trading analysis post crowdfund completion)

Well the PARTICL crowdfund is officially over and in spite of some doubts I had during week 2 and 3 of this 4 week event, they managed to fill all their funding milestones!
-This means the outstanding 1.49 million SDC will be converted to PART and 80% of it will be redistributed to the crowd funder participants (the other 20% of this pot will go to the dev wallet).
In other words anyone who bought SDC at <$1.60 (and swapped it for PART) got a good deal in my opinion.
...
I've used the experience to diversify my holdings and engage in day trading/swing trading a little more. I won't deny when you've stared at the charts and orderbooks, it's tempting to dive in. Experience is a blessing in this game and whilst I brace myself for the long wait (8 weeks) for PARTICL to hit exchanges, I accept I'm going to be holding this one for a very long time in crypto world; 9 months.
I don't think it's worth selling the PARTICL token so soon, given all the potential, all the recent transparency, all the videos and casts/communications explaining what PARTICL is and the likelihood that this will continue. The SDC development may have been shrouded in secrecy but it looks like PARTICL is going to be a much more transparent and open affair.
I will personally be reverting to a pattern of holding (and possibly accumulating) ETH, PART and REP whilst trading in other alts over varying time frames. That says something about my market biases but I will say I've learnt that having no biases is more important to making money in this space overall. It hurt that I'd spent a lot of time wrapped up in SDC and I'm sad to see it go but diversifying and choosing the path I have has helped greatly and recovered my unrealised gains when SDC was at $5.
...
To those that got burned buying SDC at the top remember there's opportunity in every asset to pump. Even BTCD (Bitcoin Dark) pumped 1000% to $11 after it been abandoned by the devs. The reality is that markets are stupid (like mobs are stupid) because the bulk of traders that comprise them are untrained and follow patterns rather than lead or anticipate them. Look at other assets trading in the cryptospace; >100-200% losses can be quickly recovered in 1-2 smartly timed and executed trades.
I am not saying buy SDC. Now is a terrible time to do so. Instead if you want to play a game of profit with other people's stupidity, just watch the chart, daily trading volume and order book for a while and see if someone is attempting to accumulate and pump it. The API exchange bots will continue their business of automated trading to settle price to the mean but it might be an opportunity.
That said this is an awful idea when you consider how many and how often other alt coins will pump in value. Hedging with some mental stop losses and conditional sells (I never enter conditional buy/sell orders on Poloniex or Bittrex as I personally believe they monitor the books) can prove profitable if you are patient, willing to wait months on each asset and check the prices daily, selling when the almost inevitable 100% rise comes. Remember the average return on a traditional stock index is 10% PA - 100% PA is a good return in contrast for what is essentially a stress free strategy.
...
I am increasingly bullish on PARTICL. I even have some suggested solutions to their potential problem of attracting vendors:
...
So keep that in mind. I believe the future of blockchain technology lies not in being a currency but in providing services and platforms to implement real world fundamental change; whether this makes markets more efficient, decentralised and secure or increases accessibility to ownership rights and investment potential I believe the platforms that will succeed in the longer term are those that attempt to draw non-speculative revenue into their ecosystem.
So many crypto-tokens are obsessed with being currencies. That to me shows a real lack of imagination (and a get rich quick, screw other people over mentality) among many developers in the cryptospace. That said projects like Ethereum, Particl, Augur, ARK, Library Credits (and quite a few others) transcend these tendencies and provide the real future of this space.
Similarly I hope the new class of chains which take advantage of the masternode/PoS mechanisms and implement self-funding budgets like PIVx/DASH/Decred and now Stratis use those growing budgets (both in coin number and exponentially in coin price) to interface with the real world in some way and fund public development, small businesses and acquire real estate and utilities similar to corporations that acquire such assets to increase their intrinsic value and create a perpetuating and stimulated real-world economy that rewards the token holders of those participating chains (see this article I wrote here: https://www.reddit.com/pivx/comments/657ej2/i_hope_pivx_aspires_to_be_more_than_just_a/).
Anyway I'm done for now. Catch me on the next upcoming trollbox podcast (https://twitter.com/trollboxpodcast) where I make a guest appearance and talk at length about the above!
Trade well,
Joskye

My Bitcoin story

I am relatively noob bitcoin enthusiast with an interest in Bitcoin since mid-2011. I want to share some details of my experience in case they are useful to somebody. I'm using a throwaway for obvious reasons. Be advised I'm not a native English speaker.
I first heard about Bitcoin in May 2011, when the media widely reported on the Silk Road for the first time. I wanted to buy drugs through the Internet, of course. It sounded like a cyberpunk fantasy come true. I bought 6 BTC @ $20 to a local reseller and, after some tinkering with the Silk Road site, I couldn't make my mind to choose a dealer and actually take the risk. I didn't need the money nor the drugs (it is actually easier and more convenient to score about any drug in my city) so I postponed the plan indefinitely.
Summer came, the 2011 bubble rose and exploded, and I totally forgot about my 6 BTC. I checked it some months later and saw BTCUSD was about $2.50, pocket change. I decided to keep the BTC locked as a novelty and souvenir from my bad investment. I didn't have more than two or three thousand euro to spare and since I was going to spend a month abroad on vacation, I needed the money. The idea of buying more coins never crossed my mind.
Fast-forward to February 2013, I stumble upon some tech article and see Bitcoin is now worth a bit more of what I paid for them. Interesting. So I re-download Bitcoin-QT and plug my old wallet.dat in (which I had backed up in Dropbox). It starts downloading blocks and I see my 6 BTC intact.
The I started reading, and subscribed to /bitcoin. My interest caught on seriously and some days later I bought 10 BTC @ $40 to my good old local reseller. I wasn't even aware about exchanges other than Mt.Gox. I tried to open an account and get verified (the queue was about 1000 people) and then I discovered Bitstamp, the natural option for any European bitcoiner. I got myself verified and started hoarding BTC.
I bought 8 BTC more @ $47.
And then 6 more @ $73.
I told some friends about it. Four of them, all from different ages and backgrounds, jumped in and were immediatly hooked. Lots of fun ensued. Group mails were sent, links exchanged, FAQs read, Bitstamp accounts opened and verified, and our whatsapp group caught fire even at night.
You all know what happened by then. The Big Bubble was developing and we were riding it to the top. The last of my friends got in at around $100, enough to not being hit very badly when the Big Crash came upon us. I was a bull on the long term, but I had about $1300 invested and panicked a bit. I sold 11 BTC @ $66 (making a 50% profit on my average purchasing price) in what I regard as my more emotional financial decision to date.
Bitcoinland was bleeding. Someone posted the suicide hotline number in /bitcoin. Spartans held and died by the hundreds. Some guy posted about how he had ruined his marriage, another one confessed losing most of his college savings in the crash. This shit was so very, very real.
I realized that holding was for losers: there was money to be made in the unforgiving volatility. I was essentially discovering daytrading.
I started to feel a certain degree of stress. I checked the prices constantly. I told myself I could afford to lose the money, but in reality I was deluding myself and losing sleep on it. By the next week I realized that I was far too obsessed for my own good. I had to recoup my original investment in order to ease my mind.
Through some reckless, misinformed but in the end lucky daytrading, I managed to recoup about 3/4 of my investment and still had about ~15 BTC to play with. Sometime in April, a redditor made a casual comment about ASICMiner. This dividends thing sounded interesting. I read AM's available official info, registered in Bitfunder and bought 12 shares @ 0.74 BTC. I entered the world of Bitcoin stocks to never look back.
Fast forward to today. I know every Bitcointalk forum, I have read every comment, trollbox, article and business plan, played with lots of stocks and multiplied my coins by three. My experience hasn't been without bumps, though. I bought Cadoo.AvalonB3 and lost money on it. I bought 100TH and sold with a 30% gain. I tried Nastyfans, got disappointed by it and sold my seats at a big loss. I bought 5000 AMC shares at 0.0008 and dumped them at 3x the price before the shit hit the fan. Also, I have read at least two books on daytrading, and I feel more in tune than ever with the financial reality of the world, and the fear and desperation and mathematics of human nature that make it work. Not sure if this is a good or a bad thing, but I surely feel different somehow. Less naïve, that's for sure.
I've sold 5 of my AM shares today at > 600% ROI. I'm keeping another 7 for as long as I can, as well as some free BTC and some fiat just in case we plunge to unknown depths. Mostly, I'm exhausted. The Bitcoin game takes a toll, particularly if you have a social life, a relationship or a job you're supposed to like. It has been an instructive, intense and fun ride so far, but I'm taking a rest and enjoying the summer.
Some things I've learned so far.
As you can see, it's all very basic stuff, but very commonly forgotten.
If you have read till the end, congratulations and thanks. I will consider it a success if only one person learns something new. To the rest, I hope at least having entertained you.
Feel free to comment, ask and post your own bitcoin stories.

Donation Pitch.

Hello. I am in search of a BitCoin donation. I recently came up with the idea of helping novice investors who are just starting out with investing by posting videos to YouTube, creating the videos using Garry's Mod and Movavi Film-Maker. I have an account set up on Quora.com, so that if an investor from the donation pool has questions involving progressing with their brokerage accounts, I'd be happy to oblige. This is a massive under-taking of work; Making a video from scratch using the source engine takes time. It would be a very colorful way to get young adults who are just turning 18 to get up and get out there into the markets. I own an E*Trade, Fidelity, TDAmeritrade, Poloniex, and CoinBase account. I also own a Nadex and Forex account that is ready for the future, for when I have enough liquid to trade currency without trading on margin. My CoinBase account is currently in the set-up stage, though I have an Ethereum and BitCoin wallet ready to take donations of any size. I recommend something very small so I can pursue a venture into DogeCoin. Very undervalued, diluted, and it's a good place to get in on a meme-coin stock that could be seeing activity in China down the road. The poloniex exchange has been picking up heavy traffic; to the point where I just got into the exchange the moment they took down their "trollbox" chat room box indefinitely, to re-allocate administrator support. By the grace of those reading, invest in me; I have been making 600% returns back to back; I've admitted been very pissed off over my recent quitting of my Chili's Restaurant Job, and have been spending these last couple of weeks wrapping up my online investment knowledge. I'm knee-deep in a stock that's about to release Garfield GO! next week, which could explosively assist in my ventures into the stock and poloniex market, respectively.

I am increasingly bullish on PARTICL. I even have some suggested solutions to their potential problem of attracting vendors:
...
So keep that in mind. I believe the future of blockchain technology lies not in being a currency but in providing services and platforms to implement real world fundamental change; whether this makes markets more efficient, decentralised and secure or increases accessibility to ownership rights and investment potential I believe the platforms that will succeed in the longer term are those that attempt to draw non-speculative revenue into their ecosystem.
So many crypto-tokens are obsessed with being currencies. That to me shows a real lack of imagination (and a get rich quick, screw other people over mentality) among many developers in the cryptospace. That said projects like Ethereum, Particl, Augur, ARK, Library Credits (and quite a few others) transcend these tendencies and provide the real future of this space.
Similarly I hope the new class of chains which take advantage of the masternode/PoS mechanisms and implement self-funding budgets like PIVx/DASH/Decred and now Stratis use those growing budgets (both in coin number and exponentially in coin price) to interface with the real world in some way and fund public development, small businesses and acquire real estate and utilities similar to corporations that acquire such assets to increase their intrinsic value and create a perpetuating and stimulated real-world economy that rewards the token holders of those participating chains (see this article I wrote here: https://www.reddit.com/pivx/comments/657ej2/i_hope_pivx_aspires_to_be_more_than_just_a/).
Anyway I'm done for now. Catch me on the next upcoming trollbox podcast (https://twitter.com/trollboxpodcast) where I make a guest appearance and talk at length about the above!
Trade well,

Improvement suggestions!

First of all thank you for your awesome work!
here are some improvements I would love to see.
1.) It should be possible to simply click on €/BTC to fulfill in the hole money/bitcoin I got on my account. Just like it is on BTC-e. It's just simpler and faster.
2.) As small Chat that could be turned on for Chatting / support questions. This could also reduce questions which are asked frequently answered by other users instead of the support staff. This could help in the future when more and more User join Kraken, which I am sure people are going to do. (We all love the Trollbox thought even if we are not trading on BTC-e.)
Maybe we can even get a serious chat instead a chat full of trolls who knows? We should give it a try if we get more users!
3.) It should be possible to get a notification E-Mails if somebody successfully logged in (with IP address + country if possible) Maybe even an addition option to get a notification if more then X Failed login attempts, again with Country + Maybe IP? Maybe even to a separate hidden E-Mail address?
4.) Banning IPs by country : just like it is possible on Bitcoin.de. Ofc disallow any Proxy use if this option is turned on. Maybe even with several different ways that can be decided by the user. Something like:
-Allow withdrawals only by IPs from country XXX,YYY -freeze settings if successful login by Country XXX,YYY,ZZZ -Ban Ip addresses to login from XXX,YYY,ZZZ Country
I guess this makes sence, because 99% of the user will never acces their account outside of the country. If so they will most likely know in which country they are going to be in the future.
5.) A small calculator which is like the one on Qt bitcoin Trade. To Generate subsequent sell/buy order to display Profit/lose after the last Order. Including the current trading fee. Displayed in €/% just like Qt does. I really like this feature on the Qt Bitcoin trader client.
Just a simple calculator on the simple trading site would be awesome. Maybe just additional, but I guess even new/unexperienced users would understand the calculator pretty quickly and mostly trade with this if they are daily trading.
6.) A News-Box on the front page / Account overview.
Additional question:
Is it somehow possible to put € and $ together in one Fiat/XBT change with a fixed exchange rate which changes every 12hours (or what so ever) according to the average official exchange on the stocks? I guess it's impossible, would create problems and wouldn't work at all but still if it is somehow possible it would be amazing. Just to put the Volume of $/€ together in one BTC volume.
I really like Kraken so far. You guys could get really big in the future keep going like you do recently!
What do you guys think?
