Cryptocurrency Market News: Is another Bitcoin massacre

Sell or Hodl? Crypto Traders Seek Direction in Fluctuating Market

Sell or Hodl? Crypto Traders Seek Direction in Fluctuating Market
With uncertainty in the cryptocurrency market and a sudden #drop in Bitcoin’s value overnight, investors are again posed with the sell or hold dilemma, but many experts maintain that increased demand for a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (#ETF) augers well for the flagship digital currency in the long term.
Long-term forecasters say that #Bitcoin has a strong likelihood of becoming a reliable store of value and a viable payment mechanism. Experts point to rising futures volumes and increased institutional participation in #trading as positive outcomes going forward.
Historically, #negative #news hits the market with a crash, such as the #SEC’s rejection of nine cryptocurrency ETFs in August, despite the #US#regulator stressing it “emphasizes that its disapproval does not rest on an evaluation of whether Bitcoin, or #blockchain technology more generally, has utility or value as an innovation or an investment”.
Signs are that despite this latest drop in #market prices, the #cryptocurrencyecosystem is healthy with daily trading almost doubling its total just days ago. Crypto advisory firm Autonomy’s co-founder Ricky Lee suggests, “For our trading activities, the [upcoming Bitcoin Cash] hard fork recently has generated tremendous interest and trading volume, above 4 billion #daily, among #traders.”
With Bitcoin’s value shedding almost USD 1,000 in just a few hours late yesterday, Willy Woo, the founder of data analytics site Woobull suggests that overnight recovery is highly unlikely and the current market trend may continue well into 2019. CNN Bitcoin analysts suggest that USD 5,633 is looking to be the current interim resistance level, but a break below that support would have the effect of scaring off investors. Conversely, a break above this level would suggest a long position at USD 5,712.
Looking for factors as to why the drop #happened, whether it be Bitcoin futures or the Bitcoin Cash fork, there are suggestions that the effect of the sell-offs in tech stocks led by Apple on Wednesday are making their mark on cryptocurrency #prices, although most point to the current uncertainty around so-called #altcoins #Bitcoincash and #Ethereum, both poised for fundamental and controversial changes in development and infrastructure.

Things that can only be done with bitcoin.

What are some things that can only be done with bitcoin. For example
-Micropayment or tiny donations online. Credit card companies dont like processing small payments, fees end up higher than the actual amount you'd want to send.
-A decentralized marketplace (open bazzar) or even a dark-net marketplace (silkroad)
-Smart Contracts = You could set up a betting system, where any number of people could pay into a contract, and it will automatically pay out to the winner(s), when the result is published on a trusted news site. No middle man required. (auger)
What are other ideas that can only be done with bitcoin.

Augur questions

I'm participating in the Auger pre-sale, with the intent of actively trading my REP, at least initially. I'm new to alts almost entirely and have some questions:
A. When signing up for the pre-sale I was assigned an Ethereum wallet, to which my future, freshly minted REP will be deposited? Can an Ethereum wallet hold both Ether and REP simultaneously, or am I missing something? (I've bought in exclusively with btc, so I have no direct experience with Ether, other than following its recent price meanderings.)
B. I would like to be able to trade my REP basically from the earliest moment possible. Instead of using the pre-sale assigned Ethereum wallet, should I use a wallet that feeds directly to my alt-exchange account, where they can be readily traded, or just continue to use the pre-sale assigned Ethereum wallet?
C. Have I gotten too far ahead of developments? When do we expect REP to be launched?
Thanks in advance!
*The pre-sale verbage I'm referring to follows:
"REP purchased with Bitcoin or Altcoins will be associated with the Ethereum address set here. [custom ethereum address is provided here]
You may change your payout address at any time up until the official launch of Augur. We will notify you prior to this and confirm this address.
If you bought in with Ether, you do not need to set a separate payout address. Your payout will be sent automatically to the address(es) you bought in with. If you bought in with Ether and want your REP sent to an address different than the one you sent your Ether from, please contact us!
