    When the options start trading soon on the CME
    the bets made and profits and losses on those options
    will be astronomical percentage-wise.

    OR, - the CME could suck in all that volatility and make the
    options expire worthless - which means they keep all the money
    but for the tiny few who bet on a tight price range.

    If the cryptocurrency markets survive fairly well intact through Dec... then that will be an excellent sign for 2018

    volume will be light

    Too expensive to trade on CME....$17,000 1 Lot daytime and I think overnight about $85k so largest margin requirement of all times on CME which means light volume

    Light volume so no true indication of the market

    large Vol most likely

    What do you project the ripple effect to be like? Let's say you have all your bitcoin at sports books in USD. How vulnerable are the sports books? Do they get out of bitcoin pretty fast when deposits come in and convert to cash? Do they leave it set in an exchange and then vulnerable even if it is held in USD or another currency?

    Or in other words will the books survive a bitcoin crash?

    They are starting with a 35% margin requirement that is expected
    to decrease and be coupled with other marginable holdings.
    Here is the CME FAQ guide.
    We can infer from this that they are indeed aiming for price stability
    by capping the contract zones. This is all part of the effort to mainstream
    and regulate cryptocurrencies. Banks and governments will eventually
    produce their own - that is the biggest threat to BTC, the competition.

    The price is going through the roof. Peaked at over $16,000 before dropping back to $15,450. The low yesterday was $11700.

    sites all over crashing. I believe it did hit 20k which then caused lots of auto withdraws most likely which is what caused sites to crash. Now that more and more people know about it, the network/system can't handle the amount of traffic coming into the websites. It's been wild

    I don't doubt it. I've used the coindesk.com/price/ as a reference for the last 18 months. I'm sure there are other sites with equally accurate/inaccurate prices.

    By the way guys and I hate to say it, but BTC is looking more and more like a pyramid scheme. Hype the shit up to lock in late comers, and boom, watch the fuk'in bottom fall out of it.

    Will some people make money, yeah, the ones who got in early and then got the fuk out. With something this volatile, it will inevitably come crashing down.

    Not to mention "sophisticated hackers" have already begun to steal this so called "cryptocurrency", it's just a matter of time. Remember when the "dot com" boom was raging and every start up had millions in stock IPO's and the companies were yet to produce a fuk'in thing!

    Here's a real link to the C82 million dollar hack.

    Network is currently clogged with Over 200,000 of unconfirmed transactions. Hard for an exchange to give an accurate and fair price... they usually gouge you on THE BUY... and CHEAT YOU ON THE SELL.

    I've noticed even GEMINI has been slightly gouging you on the BUY. And they are usually one of the fairest. But again... when the system is clogged like this... hard to know the true value of Bitcoin. Could easily be off 1,000 high and low.

    Bitcoin has been so good for money transfer purposes. Have to depend on the sports books to keep the post up money safe. Now, we are stuck if the money has to come out bitcoin if that is the way it went in.
