      I think they did say to sell near the top but they also suggested getting back in at $15,000 which they assumed was a “pullback”

    Really? THE man? Everyone with basic TA knowledge knew it was going to crash

    Listen…Derrick predicts NOTHING. “Just buy and hold”(line taken from Max Keiser). Derrick has stronger hands than Mark Moss does.

    Great video!

  6. Ed 100% advised us TDV members to start selling around the $15k range or at least take profit. I remember the blow back he got for this prediction and he was on the money with it.

    Hey Berwick,

    How’s B-Cash ?

  10. It is highly unlikely that Bakkt will be ready in January. We will be lucky to see it operational by June 2019.
    There is a lot of resistance in BTC at $4400 that may cause it to correct yet again. Don’t assume that because we have had 5 bullish days, that the 11 month bear market is over.

    • +Mickey O won’t that reduce small transactions and drive up the price for users?

    • +Crypto joiner Yes. If you leave your crypto on the exchange, and enough people leading up to Jan 3rd withdraw their crypto’s, some of the exchanges will not have the cryptos to give you. They will say they need ‘x’ days for the withdraw to complete, which gives them time to use their cash pool to purchase the cryptos they owe you on the open market without triggering a price run up. If they try and get you the crypto from the market within a few minutes instead of ‘x’ days, this will drive the price up and eventually the withdrawals will exceed their cash pool. And that is when they could panic and close their doors and run off with the remaining money because the gig is up. People will know they never bought the cryptos in the first place and were not holding it for you. Many exchanges were simply using your money to manipulate the price. If you look at CoinMarketCap you will see many exchanges with fake volume, which to me indicates wash trading. An exchange cannot possibly trade 25% to 50% of their market cap every single day.

    • +B H probably but I’m not 100% sure which direction the price will go on Jan 3rd. When Mt Gox closed its doors, the BTC price plummeted because people realized their BTC was illiquid and difficult to sell, so they took whatever price they could to get rid of it. Back then Mt Gox was the only exchange so it will (probably) be different this time around. When Mt Gox closed their doors there was no place to sell your BTC. There are at least 2 exchanges that have the BTC that they claim they have, so they will remain open. I do expect to see long delays in getting your crypto off of the other exchanges though. Some will close their doors permanently. And it will be a very good thing in the long run because it will end their price manipulation.

    • Do you think binance is one of the safer exchanges?

    • +Filip Blaze I assume they are *all unsafe* regardless of what some review or audit tells me. You won’t know if the exchange is safe or not until you try and remove your crypto. Assume the worst.

  11. eos and litecoin are the real winners

  12. The reason the central banks and cartels have prolonged the market correction for this long is because they needed time to set up the new digital system. If you think they haven’t learned anything from 2008 you’re wrong. This time they will have the systems in place for a new market. Digital currencies are here to stay. The bottom is going to fall out, a complete devaluation of physical fiat. It’s not going to be just another recession. It will be the haves and the have nots. If you think that cryptos are free from manipulation you are mistaken. There is more manipulation in the digital space than there ever was in physical fiat. We will never have currencies that cannot be manipulated. Before physical fiat is devalued they will squeeze every drop of value from it by allowing people to buy into digital. I think we’re seeing that happening now possibly. Once that transfer has run its course, hyperinflation will set in/physical fiat will devalue to zero. Nothing will change.. it’s just a new system. The early adopters will be the most wealthy. That’s it.
