What surprises me is how very constant it has been after the crash.  Has there been any articles published on that?

almost looks like a flatline

Mark de LA says
perhaps people were holding to see what the fallout for Mt Gox was. IDK.  My interest is outside of currency per se. In the end of the video interview it was suggested to do exchanges in bitcoins other than for money .
The main problem I have argued is that it seems to be tied to currencies which are manipulated like the dollar, yuan etc. We can't yet think value in bitcoins.  How to bootstrap that for coins & then extend it to other domains like contracts, commodoties, foodchain etc. some of this shit perhaps: http://radar.oreilly.com/2014/02/bitcoin-security-model-trust-by-computation.html - maybe even a voting system that couldn't be hacked or ?


Seth says
yes, perhaps some day we can do democracy and most of government with a automated trust system backed by mathematics, eh?

the market capitalization chart is showing differently than it did on the 22nd


me thinks something is wigging out with the projection of this chart.

Mark de LA says
Maybe.
I use this chart when I want that kind of information: Bitcoin Charts

looks like a divide by zero problem -

i rather think all the data points in the flat section of the graph were either excluded for some reason or more likely the database is in the process of being revised or updated.

Mark de LA says
I'm not an expert Maybe you can study it if you care.

It is a website NOT the NY Stock Exchange.

same function for purposes here, me thinks.

it is interesting to note this analysis.  currently this thing is mostly about currency speculation.
Yep, like I said exchanges are mostly gambling.

Mark de LA says
It will be interesting to see if he can blame it on the architecture of Bitcoin or his own trading site which some claim was only beta ready. (***)

Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles bows in apology at a news conference at the Justice Ministry in Tokyo. Associated Press

Mt. Gox, once the dominant exchange for bitcoin trading, on Friday said more than $470 million of the virtual currency vanished from its digital coffers, kicking into high gear a search for the missing money by victims and cybersleuths.



Seth says
it's back  ... as expected


the strange thing now is that the curve around the MtGox crash doesn't look the same. 

seems to me that once the trades are duly recorded, they should not change.  history does not revise the s NYStock exchange stock, why should this one be any different?

I already did.
Basically tie (or use) bitcoin to actual exchanges via barter.  I don't have all the details nor the usecases worked out.  Tina said of me that I am like a kid in a candy store - too many things gather my attention & I want to chase them all; this one is just e pluribus unum waiting for a ...


... go for it or oppose it as you wish. There is lots more candy in the candy store.

well i do understand wanting to use bitcoins.  the Grisham's law thrown in there baffled me.  seems that since bitcoin is NOT a currency that is manipulated by a government, and is defationary by design, it would (when it stabablizes) become the "good" currency, and heace the one driven from the market.  a strange and baffeling effect, eh?  but then i am not so very sure that i am applying grisham's law correctly here.

apparently bitscan's analysis was accurate, bitcoin is jumpping back up.
consider also that world currencies &/or the $ are losing value.


well, yes of course, just like when the stock market goes up it might just be that the dollar is falling.  in this case today however, the size of bitcoins relative to the other currencies is negligible, imho (take at face value). 
The stock market is mostly about the Fed pumping.  This is why I want to bootstrap digital currency outside a market; Gresham's Law & all.  I want to get back to a real economy rather than inflationary spiral mania; making money on money or losing money on money.

Money tied to the market of money doesn't get out of the loops. It is just as much fun as derivatives & other bubbles.
Some things to think about, maybe here.
 Maybe all bitcoin can become is an international money transfer mechanism over the Internet which munges currencies without the need for banks, but with the need for questionable exchange markets - think Mt Gox..
