Telegram investors have just voted to refuse a full refund and instead wait for a delayed mainnet launch date in April 30, 2020. W/e you think of the project, this is basically the opposite of panicking.

My one-sentence impression of recent quantum supremacy stuff so far is that it is to real quantum computing what hydrogen bombs are to nuclear fusion. Proof that a phenomenon and the capability to extract power from it exist, but still far from directed use toward useful things.

The negotiating chips *
1. FB will NOT move forward without regulatory approval *
2. Changes already made (no investment dividends) *
3. Basket of currencies (Could be 1:1 USD or could have imposed minimums) *
4. KYC for all wallets *
5. Switzerland vs US location

1/ Just in: Dharma is live and open to the public!  We’re on a mission to introduce DeFi to millions of users as a vehicle for stable, international savings. $1.5 million USD is already earning up to 7.4% APR on Dharma. What are you waiting for?

Tobia De Angelis@tobdea

Libra is more like a layer 1 scapegoat-chain because its only purpose is to be the sacrificial victim for regulators to save their faces and claim some political victory over facebook without having to break them up

A range of 30 days just broke to the downside. If this is a bullish shakeout it'll be obvious once BTC reclaims $8k. If this is bearish I don't want to be long. Buying this feels like buying $8500 after the $10000 break. Something I'm not willing to do.

Producer breakevens in commodities provide somewhat of a floor (with a prolonged lag). Bitcoin miner breakevens provide no floor, as these adjust lower. The $BTC "floor" comes from demand, as miner supply gets smaller in USD terms the more price goes down.

The issue with miner activity and breakevens is that bitcoin miners, unlike gold miners, speculate with inventories. Bitcoin miners HODL. This results in gamma, which is negative when hodling decreases while price is going down, amplifying the downside.
The market changed beyond just price, and we got to the next larger time frame support (61.8%) faster than I thought we would. This is a good place for a bounce though, as 61.8% traded. Bias favors shorting rips though.

IDEAL price target.

Alts nearing the buy zone as predicted.
