There’s manipulation in every market – No doubt.
I don't think it happens much "yet" – Hahaha I would think otherwise. 😂
it does & should to everybody.. often during sudden bitcoin price crash we hear about market manipulation.. more than individuals i am worried about manipulation by exchanges.. i think it will improve with decentralised exchanges. – Could still manipulate markets w decentralized exchanges if you control a large amount of the overall supply.
The whole point of crypto is to be free of this, among other benefits like freedom! – Haha well when there’s money to be made, there will always be market manipulation. 🤑
It doesn't bother me much because I expect it. That's why everyone is told "don't invest what you can't afford to lose". FOMO buying at the peak of a pump is costly. W/O manipulation we'd have lower ATH's. Buy a little at a time and HODL and your portfolio will most likely grow. – DCA your way to the moon! 😄
the whales sold in the 13,000 $ range and stopped the moon mission once again. every time we get some nice forward movement they stick their leg out and trip us. we need more people in the market that are willing to hold on for the long term. i am waiting for the day that happens. it would be hilarious to watch the whales sell at 13,000 and have bitcoin continue up from that point on. they would be out of the game good news for all of us. - Perhaps they're trying to suppress prices so they can continue loading their bags for cheap? Hmm.
It does however where did they get the experience from ? The stock exchange of course . Understanding the market manipulators would undoubtedly make many one too. We do this because we want to make money and the temptation of what the "dark side " is doing will before they do it can be very tempting. What can you do about it ? Sweet nothing ...the odd company or person will get slapped on the wrist every now and then, otherwise it carries on . - It is what it is...
Manipulation in all markets make me mad! The precious metals, stocks, derivatives etc. have all been manipulated. Let the markets decide the value not the elites! - 👍
Are we sure it's manipulation ? If people let news be strong enough to dictate their buy/sell choices, it's not really manipulating but convincing 😏 – Well, the recent pump is really suspicious for a multitude of reasons. One being that the spike was so abrupt, and another that when the news was first released it w
Any manipulation in markets makes them less sound and more likely to cause huge losses for the smaller fry. The BTC whales are throwing Billions into the market, and conversely withdrawing them too. I'm scared to dive in now, as it could end in tears for the minnows, of which I am one. – Just DCA in if you believe in the long term value of BTC. 👍
i mean cryptocurrency markets are supposed to be decentralized market and tech but when you hear of market manipulation it just takes us back to the centralization that we trying to get out from on the first place...mxxm – True. Oh well.
the waves are to big! – It sure is a wild ride. 🤪
it's a defacto of any market, someone, somewhere will always look to either legally gain advantage, illegally gain advantage and at all points between the two.. it's human nature to beat the system by foul means or fair. Supposedly highly regulated markets are subject to manipulation in more ways then us minions will possibly ever know. Just need to go with the flow and by fair means be at the crest of that wave when it comes – Just gotta stick to your guns and ride the wave~ 😄
Well it should be fair for all investors. – It should, but it’ll never be because information asymmetry exists.
When I traded a lot a saw it on a daily basis, but yes. I'm just extremely curious as to who is behind it, whales, governments? There a lot of folk out there who wants to manipulate and make quick cash out of crypto, It needs to rather grow till we reach place where it replaces traditional fiat. It also discourages new traders and people in the crypto sphere. – It makes sense for those in that inner circle to grow the space tbh – similar to how it would make sense if a party were to successfully launch a 51% attack on the BTC blockchain, to uphold the integrity of it as the value of BTC is directly proportional to the size of its network and the users’ belief in it.
You feel like such a sucker when you realize that the market is being manipulated just like the gold and silver markets are. – Haha I mean, you just gotta play the hand you’re dealt sometimes.
Crypto whales can move prices up or down at very short notice, people loose money and faith in the crypto sphere. – Too much manipulation would def be a deterrent to new blood entering the space.
