Scanning back through some old journals from 2017, when I first started this journey.
Mind Blowing to look back and see how quick things can progress in just 3 years... But it’s not always visible... and this is where people get disheartened and give up... often just ‘Three Feet From Gold’. Let me be real with you... You probably aren’t going to see tangible results in the early stages.
But how can you expect to?
You have to be in this for the long term, not the short.
you’re going to be tested... sometimes the people closest to you will doubt you... even question the things you’re doing
That’s a part of the process... A lot of successful people go through the same thing.
You’ve probably heard successful people mention that the hardest point comes right before you break through... It’s the ‘Three Feet From Gold’ story all over again... What I’ve noticed from seeing other people’s journeys unfold is that the universe tends to test you with one last obstacle before you break through.
But many people give up just three feet from gold... Winners never quit and quitters never win. Don’t stop! Keep plugging away 💭
Still think Bitcoin is a passing fad? Here’s a news flash for you. At $8,940, it’s bigger than Russia’s monetary base. That makes Bitcoin the eighth largest currency in the world. And the price keeps on climbing…
If you don’t count gold and silver, Bitcoin is now the eighth largest currency in the world. It comes in at 10th place after the two precious metals.
How significant is this? Well, with a market cap currently at $162 billion and with some analysts predicting a BTC value of over $40k by the end of 2019, after just 10 years of being created, it’s a pretty big deal indeed.
Bitcoin is already bigger than the base money of Russia, South Korea, Brazil, Canada, and Norway. With cryptocurrency adoption on the rise around the world, it won’t be long before it catches up with–and overtakes–the monetary base of India, Switzerland, the UK, and, yes, the United States as well.
When it comes to a country’s monetary base, however, that is measured in terms of the total amount of currency in circulation or held in commercial deposits in the central bank, not in its gold reserves.
With its $25 billion dollar debt, it’s no surprise that despite being the world’s largest economy, the U.S. lags in fourth place behind Japan, China, and the Euro Zone when it comes to base money.
Do you treat your stash of Bitcoins as currency or as an investment?
Bitcoin (BTC) price just made an incredible 36% rally towards $10,000, leaving bears and shorts behind. Several signals were pointing towards a potential trend shift and price reversal, while the overall market sentiment was still extreme fear.
The majority of the market was looking for lower levels to buy and most often when the majority expects one thing, the opposite happens.
However, what were the reasons behind this latest push?
Gaps on charts are often used by traders to define targets and trades. Approximately 90% of the time these gaps are closed before the market moves further. In the case of Bitcoin, the digital asset showed two CME gaps after the rally from $3,200 earlier this year. The first one was a gap between $8,500 and $9,000 and the second one was between $7,330 and $7,450.
The first gap closed by the breakdown of the descending triangle, while the second gap was closed by the dropdown a few days ago and closed to the dot. This leaves one open gap which is situated at the $11,800 level.
CME futures expiration dates often provide volatile days. Friday was one of those days, and this is likely why BTC price made its move.
Interestingly enough, Bakkt futures provided a new all-time high, as 640 contracts were traded during on Oct. 23, 2019, an increase of 653% compared to the previous day.
These signals show that there's demand and interest at these levels for Bitcoin, as there's never been such a high level of volume on a day on Bakkt futures since the launch.
Alongside with the bounce, bullish divergences were building as Bitcoin price moved within a falling wedge structure. Bullish and bearish divergences generally mark a potential top and bottom forming in the chart. This phenomenon was observed during the December 2017 peak and the December 2018 bottom.
