Bitcoin Trades Over $1000 On BTC China Exchange And Crashes 30% … Then Rebounds

BitcoinTradesOver $1000 OnBTC China ExchangeAndCrashes 30% … ThenRebounds

Update: following the 30% drop to under $600 in seconds, BTC promptly rebounded to $800 in a few more seconds, as the entire BTC market is now just an algo arena.

Putting to rest fears that today’s Senatorial hearing on digital currencies would crater Bitcoin (if in the immediate term), moments ago the digital currency priced in USD on the Mt Gox exchange, rose to yet another unpredecented price, hitting $850 moments ago, or about 50% higher than where it was this morning.

But you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Because at the same time, the Renminbi-denominated price of Bitcoin on BTC China, has the digital currency at 6780CNY. At a USDCNY exchange rate of 6.09, this means a price over $1100 per Bitcoin.

And as the two day chart shows, somehow while Bitcoin rose 50% in 2 days, it has doubled on the Chinese exchange.

Naturally, at this point we would suggest picking up the 20%+ free arb, however it is unclear how one can short the CNY priced leg of the transaction, or if for that matter, there is even an actual, liquid market in the currency.

And as if to prove BTC just head us, as the final chart shows, taken literally moments before we were going to post this article, BitCoin touched $900 on Mt Gox… and promptly tanked to just under $600, entering a bear market in the span of seconds on what appears to be about 10,000 trades.

And a better chart of the tumble which sent BTC lower by 33% from $900 to $600 in seconds:

  1. Bitcoin is the Internet of money, a new paradigm shift in the entire financial industry, a global phenomena that will affect our lives and the form we do business. Extremely low transaction costs, instant transaction propagation, variable levels of privacy for curstomers (potential anonimity), irreversible transactions, cryptographic security (brain wallets, cold storage, money backup), multiparty transactions and contracts, and so many other features will defeat current financial systems.
    Bitcoin is not going to adapt to laws, people and their laws are going to adapt to Bitcoin.
