It was funny, but uncannily realistic

I think it was a bit of a piss take.
Fair enough, makes me feel ever so slightly better ;) I'm among the few holdouts not using Facebook so couldn't watch the video.

I've never used Fleecebook, Chatnumpty or Instagranny either. Never understood why anyone would what to know where I am, what I'm doing, or what I'm eating.

Bitcoin seems like its crashing. Look at the famous attached graph of a 'bubble' or 'hype cycle'. Bitcoin price chart seems to match it exactly - we've moved from the peak of the mania phase to the 'blow off' phase, and we've just come out of the 'bull trap'.

Look at the small price move back upwards just after the crash starts (denial), fooling naïve speculators into thinking that's it's going back up- 'the bull trap' (return to normal), only for it to nosedive once again soon after.... :twisted:

That's the thing you've got so many people buying the dip that it may take a very long time for it to crash fully. Add to that if bitcoin recovers to the 20k usd mark then the FOMO is gonna be huge. As it will appear invincible.
