Bitcoin prices manipulated-STUDY

Recommended Posts

Bitcoin’s massive price run-up late last year may have been the result of a price manipulation campaign, according to a new study released.  According to Is Bitcoin Really Un-Tethered?, a paper by researchers John M. Griffin and Amin Shams released Wednesday, price manipulation may have accounted for at least half of the increase in price for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies last year. Using algorithms to analyze blockchain data and purchases made with the cryptocurrency Tether, the findings suggest that Bitcoin’s increase in price was caused by the actions of a few key players rather than a real demand for the currency from investors.

Basically, you wake up in the morning and don't know if you are millionaire or poor. On a bright side, same is with Trump

The worst with the cryptocurrencies is the huge amount of energy wasted for mining a virtual coin of uncertain value.

Literally every month, the world's largest financial institutions are pleading guilty to misleading customers, manipulating markets or fraud. 

The entire economy is built on a house of cards whose only inherent value is the value we give it - but yah, I guess we should listen to Warren Buffett. He's only got 81 billion reasons to want bitcoin to fail.

Bitcoin is now trading at around $8,130, up a whopping 60.84% over the past month, with the price surging $3,086.14 over the period.

 

Here are common manipulation techniques:

1. Churning

2. Wash Trading

3. Pump and Dump

4. Bear Raiding

5. Market Cornering
