Bitcoin about to Pop

Bitcoin looks like it's heading towards a major crash. If it happens, crypto-millionaires will be hit hardest while governments move to regulate the cryptocurrency

I dont think the comparison to the tulip bubble is a good one. When the Bitcoin bubble bursts nothing will be left. After the tulip crisis an industry was formed.

It'll crash by 2/3rds and still be huge compared with a couple of years ago....when the dumb money is cleaned out folks will concentrate on the practical issue of making Bitcoin pay. How's the tulip industry doing these days? :coffee:

Cut flowers are still a very important export. Worth about €8 billion. We are the second largest agriculture exporter in the world.

I half expect bitcoin to just get outlawed one day, its a ponzi scheme more than a currency.
A rational skeptic should be able to discuss and debate anything, no matter how much they may personally disagree with that point of view. Discussing a subject is not agreeing with it, but understanding it.

The smart money will move into a host of newer crypto currencies that do things infinitely faster and cheaper than bitcoin can.

No, Bitcoin really is prehistoric compared to other newer cryptos. It would be like picking the model T Ford over a Tesla. Bitcoin could fix all this with what's called a "fork" (same concept as in programming), but apparently those with the most influence are a bit religious about Bitcoin staying pure.

Funniest headline I saw on steemit about bitcoin:
Bitcoin crashes to prices not seen since... Just 2 weeks ago!

I might have a punt if it drops far enough. Question is, how far is enough?
