A place to discuss forking Bitcoin / Bitcoin Cash

This is a subreddit for discussion of forking Bitcoin to allow a free-market and consent-based approach to Bitcoin's / Bitcoin Cash's progress. In Bitcoin Cash we brought together like minded people - users, developers, miners - to carry on the experiment that is Bitcoin. We stand ready to fork again should it become necessary to protect Bitcoin to ensure the option of peer-to-peer electronic cash can survive and thrive.

The situation and timing of the bull market price of Bitcoin

Is the market price of bitcoin linked to the general marketplace?

Noticed this question come up a few times in a number of variants: Did Bitcoin just go up because the other markets went down? Or: Did Bitcoin just go down because the markets went down? etc.
So I used 5 years of EOD data to draw a correlation between BTC and the S&P 500 using the standard formula: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/correlation.asp .
This formula results in a bounded value "r" which is +1.0 for perfect positive correlation (if markets go up bitcoin goes up), 0.0 for no correlation, and -1.0 for perfect negative correlation (if markets go down, bitcoin goes up).
The result I got was: r = +0.8306

Can the market price of Bitcoin be manipulated?

I don't see how the usability of bitcoin can be managed, but I can imagine the .gov/banks/abcs figuring out how to rig the price somehow... I've been really suspicious ever since the futures thing got going...

How is the market price of bitcoin determined?

So, I understand in the abstract that the price of btc, which as of this post is about 3,200 USD, is based on the average of all the prices people are willing to pay for it.
But how does this work in practice? How do various exchanges and ticker programs actually calculate the market price of one bitcoin?
And if it is based on the central tendency of all the bitcoin transactions then does the price completely disregard cash transactions?
For example, if my friend asks to buy some bitcoin off me for cash, he might hand me fifty bucks and then I transfer about 50 bucks worth of bitcoin (based on the current market value OR whatever we agree on) from my wallet app to his then there would be no traceable evidence of the worth of those btc.
So, how's it all work?

Bitcoin Cash does not need to overtake the price/market cap of Bitcoin for a "flippening" to happen.

The common "agreed upon" idea when it comes to hashrate is that it is primarily dictated by price rather than the other way around. I also thought this was the case until I realized that there is more to the equation than the price of each individual coin. Right now it is true, as most mining revenue comes from the block reward subsidy. This made me realize that miners' hashrate is not proportional to the price of coins, but rather the block reward. So it is entirely possible for Bitcoin Cash to have a higher hashrate and accumulated PoW than Bitcoin, but still be worth less per coin.
This makes me wonder: If both coins were to co-exist where Bitcoin Cash is used for retail purchases and as cash, while Bitcoin is used as a speculative asset that people hold (I know this sounds silly, but it seems possible given the irrational nature of the market), which becomes the 'real' Bitcoin?
Bitcoin Cash will have a higher hashrate and accumulated PoW making it valid as THE Bitcoin, but BTC will have a higher market cap and coin price, meaning that "the market" has determined it to be the real Bitcoin.

Cryptocurrency Trading: Spot vs Derivatives

Cryptocurrency Trading: Spot vs Derivatives
https://preview.redd.it/18y55cdcjaq51.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=51a0c388cc7df6aba8670188d3c97f206e108a6d
PrimeBit is the most convenient way to start crypto derivatives trading anytime, anywhere. Derivative instruments are very popular to trade these days because of ease and flexibility. Virtually anyone can be a trader. But how does derivatives trading work? And how does it differ from the traditional spot trading? Knowing the difference is vital to gain success in the cryptocurrency trading field.
Two main terms are common in the crypto trading world:
  • Spot trading
  • Derivatives trading
These are forms of trading designed for traders and investors to make profits out of digital coin prices.
Spot Trading
Spot trading is considered as the most basic form of investment in the world of cryptocurrencies. It involves buying a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin and then holding it until its value rises. You are free to trade any of the cryptocurrencies that you have against the US dollar or other currencies at any time based on the market trends or based on your trading strategies.
The coin that you bought is your own and can be stored in your crypto wallet (or in trading platforms) for safekeeping until such time that you sell them when the price surges. You can also use it to buy altcoins (or other cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin) that you think will rise in value in the future. Because you are buying or selling actual crypto, which is limited in supply, traders can trade with low levels of leverage. In spot trading, you can use the crypto anyway you want since it is yours.
Spot Trading Benefits
  • You own the crypto directly.
  • You can buy other altcoins.
  • You can use the crypto for other things such as paying for goods or services.
Derivatives Trading
Derivatives trading is also referred to as trading of contracts. It is different in some ways from spot trading in that you will not need to own the asset and store it directly before you can trade it. Instead, you trade contracts derived from this asset using trading platforms or brokers. Derivatives trading is convenient because traders will not worry about the security of coins but still earn from their price actions. Owning crypto wallets entails security issues and additional fees.
When trading derivatives like Bitcoin contracts (or BTCUSD), you are not buying or selling actual Bitcoins. However, the value of these Bitcoin contracts follows the market price of Bitcoin against the US dollar. As the Bitcoin price rises or falls so does the value of the contract. You profit from the difference in the price changes from the moment that you opened a position (buy or sell) to the time that you closed it. A unique element of derivatives trading is that traders can easily sell “short,” which means that you can earn both from a rising and a falling market.
Derivatives come with higher levels of leverage. Trading on leverage or margin means that you can borrow funds from your broker to trade in bigger amounts or trade multiple currencies than you normally could. It is a great way to diversify a trading portfolio. How does it work? For example, when you trade Bitcoin contracts worth $10 with 10x leverage, you can buy a Bitcoin contract worth $100 with only that initial $10 as margin. Thus, there are greater profit opportunities for traders of derivative instruments.
Derivatives Trading Benefits
  • You profit from cryptocurrencies without directly owning them.
  • You trade in a highly liquid market.
  • You earn in both rising and falling markets.
  • Your earning potential is limitless with higher leverage.
  • You can easily trade more instruments in a single broker.
Conclusion
Both spot trading and derivatives trading have their benefits and give the traders opportunities to profit. However, most traders nowadays prefer derivatives trading because the trading conditions are much more favorable. There is no need to own the asset being traded and the fees involved are very low compared with spot trading. Due to the higher leverage offered, derivatives trading is very attractive to many traders.

Could Bitcoin theoretically be "destroyed" if say an insanely wealthy group of people/government accumulated like 90% of all the Bitcoin in existence?

We can get into quite heated arguments at the office when we try to collectively answer questions like this but for once, we generally agreed on two assumptions that would have to happen for this theoretical scenario to pan out:
  1. A state/government would devalue its money less quickly than the market price of Bitcoin would rise if they started buying it up (90% is practically every satoshi in existence now).
  2. All the owners would have to agree to sell to the same entity.
So, theoretically, yes, practically, no. Agree?

What is Bitcoin Derivatives / Perpetual Contract?

What is Bitcoin Derivatives / Perpetual Contract?

\This post has been written by Hedgehog, a MCS influencer and a Bitcoin margin trader.*

#Be_a_Trader!

Greetings from MCS, the derivatives trading platform where traders ALWAYS come first.
If you are a trader who mainly deals spot trading in cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.), and a trader who has been doing cryptocurrency trading for a long time, the word "perpetual contract" might be new to you. A Perpetual Contract, one of the cryptocurrency derivatives products, is a combination of the advantages of cryptocurrency spot trading and futures trading in a traditional financial market. In this post, let's take a closer look at the perpetual contract of the most famous cryptocurrency in the world, Bitcoin.
Bitcoin perpetual contract, a Bitcoin derivative, has mainly four characteristics. There are no expiration or settlement dates, and they often use a dual pricing model. In addition, Bitcoin perpetual contract can be traded using leverage. MCS offers up to 100x leverage. Bitcoin perpetual contact also employs "Auto-Deleveraging" (ADL) as a loss minimization mechanism.
"Expiration / Settlement Date" ... "Dual Price Model" ... "Loss Minimization Mechanism"..⁉️
You might find perpetual contract difficult because you are not accustomed to these words; however, it is NOT‼️

https://preview.redd.it/tq7jfs8l63f51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=cd3802815ac533f09780d85c146b6e8950c6ea72
🎯 First, Bitcoin perpetual contract has "no expiration or settlement date".
There is no expiration or settlement date for Bitcoin perpetual contract. Unlike Bitcoin spot trading that needs immediate settlement and other Bitcoin futures products, Bitcoin perpetual contract traders do not need to consider rollover cost, which is a transaction fee for a contract extension, and can sell the contract whenever. In addition, the price of MCS Bitcoin perpetual contract converges to the spot market price of Bitcoin (or market average price) through the funding rate, which takes place in every 8 hours. Thus, even though there is no expiration date, traders check this funding fee to make sure their positions are safe.

https://preview.redd.it/nboc4zwn63f51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=1466b74fb8ca9827a69e00d930ceaa41d53ab11f
🎯 Second, Bitcoin Perpetual Contract uses "Mark Price System (Dual Price Model)".
The MCS cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform uses a mechanism called 'Funding' to link the price of Bitcoin perpetual contract to the price of the Bitcoin spot. In addition, MCS adopted a dual price model that utilizes the mark price (market average) to protect traders from unreasonable forced liquidation caused by market manipulation and to create a fair trading environment. The above-mentioned market manipulation means that it causes abnormal price fluctuations and unnecessary forced liquidation of positions, resulting in an unfair trading environment. The mark price of MCS is the real-time price average of the global Bitcoin exchanges with BTC/USDT markets.

https://preview.redd.it/akrz5wop63f51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=e95502f9281a9d427548ad06ac5afc6345f6ff6f
🎯 Third, Bitcoin Perpetual Contract offers up to 100x leverage
Traders on the MCS Bitcoin Derivatives Trading Platform can trade Bitcoin perpetual contract using up to 100 times the leverage on MCS. Compared to the 3x to 20x leverage offered in spot margin trading or futures trading on other existing exchanges, MCS offers a much wider range of leverage. As a result, traders can manage their portfolio in a variety of ways, and can easily adjust the leverage and margins of open positions at any time to effectively manage risk.

https://preview.redd.it/tgubzwfr63f51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=388e00d3fff66551b35c5377a667c4066b06dc72
🎯 Fourth, MCS Bitcoin Perpetual Contract employs "Auto-Delveraging" mechanism.
In the case of Bitcoin derivatives trading, if a trader is forced to liquidate, contract loss may occur due to the inability to settle the position at a price that is better than its bankruptcy price. In this case, the Insurance Fund covers the loss incurred. If the contract loss is not covered by the Insurance Fund, auto-deleveraging takes place. Auto-Deleveraging (ADL) is a mechanism by which a trader with high profits and leverage compensates for the contract loss. The positions of traders that are subject to ADL are automatically liquidated by matching the bankruptcy price of the position forcibly liquidated. Let me dig a bit deeper. There are two types of loss minimization mechanism; the socialized loss and the auto-deleveraging which is used by MCS. In the case of the socialized loss, all the traders on the platform compensate equally for a contract loss. Auto-deleveraging adopted by MCS affects only the traders who have profiting positions with high leverage. This protects other traders who use low risk and low leverage from being harmed by a single risky trader.
💡 "If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles."
I hope this post was helpful to you in understanding Bitcoin perpetual contract, and I really wish that you realize your financial freedom through Bitcoin perpetual contract!!

A 50k Bitcoin price would mean it is only about 12% the market cap of gold, about equal to a large tech company

I'm no genie and I know most of you around here are bullish long term, but I do see the occasional naysayer who thinks Bitcoin is worthless or that shits on anyone who makes a strong prediction regarding the future price possibilities. People were saying the same type of stuff when the price was $10 saying it would never touch $100, and again when the price was $1000 saying it would never touch $10k. Now it's people saying we'll never sniff 50k, 100k, etc. But a 50k Bitcoin would correlate to about 12% of the value of gold. This seems almost likely rather than just a possibility. A 50k Bitcoin would make the entire asset class worth about 1 trillion dollars, there are a handful of singular companies worth a trillion dollars and we are talking about an entire asset class. Ignore the dips and urges to sell and HODL everyone! I think big days are coming in the years to come
