    Is a toilet paper token a whole roll or just a sheet?

    Ah, nothing beats selling some Bitcoin to then see it go on a little run again.

    BCH halving in less than 2 days. Let's see how that plays out.

    Ledger issues for anyone else? Portfolio Balance is way way out. Individual accounts tally correctly but overall balance is broken as heck.

    They've confirmed this as an official bug from the latest release - anyone else having this issue? I almost pooped a brick.

    Looks like a steady recovery, BTC halvening is due any day I think now so we'll see if it continues afterwards as well.

    It's 12 days, according to coinmarketcap's countdown clock.

    Just a gut feeling and nothing more but I don’t think a major price increase is on the cards. There’s no excitement around Bitcoin anymore. It’s become almost a normal investment/ currency which is no bad thing.

    Not a bad run at the moment, I may actually need to withdraw whatever I have in crypto into FIAT some time in the near future. Can you directly withdraw from Binance nowadays with some extra KYC or still need to go through Coinbase?

    What are we thinking then, a big dump across the board just before the halvening, as people take profits out before it crashes back down?

    Its a possibility, the uncertainty will no doubt make people panic, although this isn't exactly the first time this has happened, just look at how things played out last time..

    I'm almost certain there will be a sell off either just before the halving, dump style, or a gradual pull back after the event before it turns back up a. That could take a week or a couple of months.. The only question to me is what will be the top price, and where will it bottom.

    I must admit, I'm surprised it's doing so well, and that stocks are doing so well. Especially the US stock market given massive unemployment. That part to me doesn't make sense to me. How can the Dow Jones have the best week in 30 years or whatever it was, when 3 or 6 million (it was one of those) file for unemployment the same week?

    We typically pump into a halving before leveling off or even retracing after it.

    Typical buy the rumour sell the news event. When you see outlets like bloomberg and yahoo finance talk about the halving, its time to short.
