Title: Bitcoin price
Post by: Doublek on January 06, 2018, 11:11:02 PM
I understand why the price of stocks go up and down but I don't understand why the price of bitcoin fluctuates so much?

Bitcoin’s value is dependant on the intensity of demand and supply there is.
The demand is a market factor.
The intensity with which the market needs the commodity fuels the demand aspect.
Supply however is a limited factor within the Bitcoin economy since the number of bitcoins there can exist within the network is limited to 21 Million.

This often causes a difference between the buying and the selling price.

To answer your question, there isn’t any actual set price for a Bitcoin.
The price of Bitcoin is a balance between what price someone is willing to trade with to part from the Bitcoin and what someone is ready to pay to acquire it.

Bitcoin exchanges and companies that transact using bitcoins determine a lower and a upper limit around what a person in possession of Bitcoin is willing to sell it for and what a person is willing to pay in order to acquire it.

I think it's a simple concept;
If more people want to sell, the price will decrease. Bitcoin's value can be volatile when compared to more established currencies and commodities. This can be attributed to its relatively small market size, and it means that a smaller amount of money can move the Bitcoin price more significantly.
In economist field this is what is called abnormal demand period.
The irony of this is folks can stop investing when the market is up, so the volatility level will continue to rise!

The last time it was because of manipulations of China and Korea, as far as I know. Other than that, it's price is caused by the excitement surrounding it. It's just really easy to scare the public, which can drain lots of money.

In fact maybe am wrong, but the down slide of Bitcoin seems to be consistent. The other day they were down with -7 on approximation, but today it is down with (-9.85%).
Hope this is not a trend ensuing?

You have to read news about different positions of counries in terms of cryptocurrency, then it'll be clear why bitcoin, and all other cryptocurrencies are with such a gap and fall or rise.

All of this depends on many factors. In general of course it depends on various information. On laws of different  countries and prohibitions which they create on the path of cryptocurrencies.

Yes, bitcoin is relatively unstable, but you gotta understand that this way you can make a lot of money off it. Because it can have a big price variation.

I believe the only way to keep it stable would be to regulate it, what means Bitcoin wouldn't be decentralized anymore, it would become artificial like our local currencies. When something is going bad in our country and our money loses price the local banks and government intervenes to stable it, and in Crypto-Currency (https://bitmann.org) world it doesn't happen. So volatility is a characteristic of Bitcoin and I don't think it will change.

Generally, on other, new and promising crypto-currencies, provided the total growth of cryptology can earn much more

All this is due to various pieces of news as well as states that are trying to influence its price with prohibitions. Trading also plays an important part here.

The fluctuations in the market depends on the sell and buy orders executed in a particular interval of the time. These fluctuations get abnormal when a particular news relaeses especially which has the huge impact on the psychology of the traders. Am I right folks?

Yes, totally agree. It's in the hands of big traders (who possess large amount of crypto) to change the face of the market. And the panic selling of feared traders.


And some people say government regulations affect the price, but I don't agree.

BitCoin is pure speculation. The future of market are coins with rock stable rate independent from BTC. There is for example Nebula Network - decentralized storage cloud with emission mechanism tied to the supply in form of computational power and disc space. Thanks of it it's rock stable. May it be a rising star soon?

While the cost of bitcoin is quite low, it is dangerous to buy or sell
