Bitcoin & Markets Update 11/16/17---Host on twitter: @AnselLindner and the show: @btcmrkts --- THIS SHOW IS SUPPORTED BY LISTENERS LIKE YOU! $2-5/mo. --- This is not investment advice people, do your own research, I say some crazy stuff on this show, it could all be psuedoscience. ---- Prices Bitstamp - $7410 The Finney: $0.74 3M Futures - $7320 spread - $90 Market Cap - $125B Global MC - $220B Maximalist Price - $13,171 Avg on chain tx value - $8545 As mempool filled, avg tx size increased, showing the quality filter of fees. BTC $ val tx'ed on chain (24h): $2.3B Difficulty: -30% or -6% - I estimate about -5% Mempool: 13MB down from a high of 50MB during the latest attack. Half of unconfirmed txs were 1 sat/b OTC Localbitcoins: $62M/wk Paxful: $9M/wk LedgerX: $2.6M/wk But HUGE volume this week on LedgerX, $4.2M in first three days, more options for options contracts being offered as well. Total public OTC data: $73.6M/wk --- Micropayment Channel Networks Core 0.15.1 is released in the middle of a civil way Core devs march on. Thanks to all the contributors. BCASH update Ver moved coins to bitfinex, looks like he was sell small pieces in 2000 btc blocks. It'd be plain stupid to sell all his BTC. There is no question about which coin will "win" he must know that or he's stupid. Jihan tweeted a few times telling bcash community to be nice to other altcoins. I asked if he'd commit his anti-competitive patents to a defensive patent pool like BS, but no answer. --- Thank you bitcoin
