Purchasing a Tiger

During episode 7, the BBT cast finds a laptop that belongs to Penny’s ex-boyfriend Zack that contains bitcoins. In the show, Howard exclaims, “I can’t believe a single bitcoin is worth $5,000 dollars,” to which Leonard replies, “Didn’t we mine some a few years ago?” After the discovery, the cast envisions spending the bitcoins on lavish items. For instance, Raj details to Leonard he’d like to purchase “a tiger” with his share of the money. However, Sheldon decides to mess with the gang after they choose to remove him from the investment split.

Following this, Howard opens up the wallet on the laptop and Leonard asks, “How much is in there?” “It’s empty,” Howard explains. Meanwhile, the mischievous Sheldon seems to have an inclination to where the funds are stored.

This means that at 8pm EDT this coming Thursday over 12.6 million viewers will hear about bitcoin, mining, and wallets in a comedic fashion.

Furthermore, as bitcoin has gained in popularity, the decentralized currency has been featured on many television broadcasts over the years. This includes shows like The Good Wife, Mr. Robot, The Simpsons, and even on Jeopardy. The Big Bang Theory’s upcoming show was also filmed a while back when bitcoin was averaging $5K per BTC. Now bitcoin has almost doubled that in the last month at $9,000 per BTC, and a whopping $150B market cap. This week’s BBT episode is sure to bring more attention towards the ‘Internet of Money’ alongside a touch of laughter.

Bitcoin Touches a Milestone Price of $9K Across Global Exchanges

Bitcoin Touches a Milestone Price of $9K Across Global Exchanges

The price of bitcoin has crossed the $9,000 USD zone across global exchanges on November 26, 2017, at approximately 10:40 am EDT. Earlier this year, bitcoin’s meteoric price rise had crushed those who believed it would tank when it passed $2K, and has continued to exceed some of the more modest expectations.

Bitcoin Crosses the $9K Region

Bitcoin Touches a Milestone Price of $9K Across Global ExchangesBitcoin is on the tip of everyone’s tongues these days, as the decentralized currency has breached many all-time highs month after month. 2017 has been spectacular as far as the currency’s value is concerned, with bitcoin rising over 700 percent this year alone. For instance, back in January the price finally breached $1,000 per BTC, but then kept roaring all year long. On October 7 the price surpassed $4,500 which was half of what it is today, and you could have bought the dip on November 12 when the price was $5,850. Although the present value of bitcoin has astonished many, how quickly it has risen has been a shock to most. The currency is now being taken very seriously by naysayers, with it’s massive $150B market capitalization. At press time the price per BTC is at an all-time high of $9020 per token.  

Milestone After Milestone, Bitcoin Just Won’t Quit

The cryptocurrency’s market price isn’t the only milestone of bitcoin’s ninth year of life. The currency is being used more than ever before – as there are roughly 250,000-375,000 transactions confirmed on the network every single day. Further, well over three-quarters of the cryptocurrency has been mined so far leaving just 4.3M bitcoin’s left to mine. Bitcoin mining is more profitable than ever – with 24 pools splitting the current hashrate. Right now, the biggest mining pools in the industry as far as hashrate is concerned include Antpool, Viabtc, BTC.com, Slush, and BTC.top. Hashrate itself is massive, as miners at press time are processing over 10 exahash per second, and on October 24 the hashrate surpassed 12.5 exahash. In contrast to the positive news regarding bitcoin during 2017, the network has experienced congestion and significantly higher fees this year as well.

Technical Indicators

Looking at the charts since our last markets update, we can see some massive resistance up to $9300. During our previous analysis, the two 100 & 200 Simple Moving Averages (SMA) were parting ways after crossing paths earlier this week. Now the short term SMA is well above the long-term trend line indicating bulls may break key resistance quite easily. There is a bit of sell off with consolidation trying to form, as both the RSI and Stochastic show oversold conditions. Bitcoin’s price could see a correction in the near future, but it depends on the when buyers run out of steam. If a drop takes place, order books and some Fibonacci retracements indicate some possible $8,500-8,800 scenarios short-term. For now, bitcoin is trying to hold steady above $9K to keep the momentum going.

Bitcoin has had a fashionable year all around, as mainstream media and the masses are taking notice of the currency’s benefits.

In addition to the media attention, citizens all across the globe hear about bitcoin far more often than they did in the past.

Now, a friend of a friend or family member who knows a cousin just so happens to mine bitcoin – it’s like suddenly everyone knows about bitcoin!

Alongside this, the world’s citizen’s are using BTC in great number where economies are failing; capital controls are tightening, austerity measures are getting worse, and national currencies are suffering from hyperinflation. These countries include places like Venezuela, China, Zimbabwe, Mexico, and many other areas around the world. And we can’t forget about Japan whose been one of the friendliest nations towards bitcoin so far, as the country has legalized BTC for payments across the land. Japan has streamlined thousands of merchants who accept bitcoin, and roughly 88% of the country’s people have heard about BTC.

Are We Nearing the Moon or Are We Not Even Close?

Bitcoin has become a serious contender in the world as far as money is concerned. Reaching $9K per BTC is just one feat this technology has seen this year, and enthusiasts are celebrating it all. As bitcoin slowly creeps towards $10,000 per BTC, people are starting to question where the moon really will be? $10K, $50K, $100K or maybe a million? The kids keep asking where that confounded moon will be?
