If nowadays Bitcoin is gold and Ether is oil, does it really matter who Satoshi Nakamoto really is?

Different scenarios of Satoshi Nakamoto reappearance, Coinbase customers withdrew more than they deposited and Tyler Winklevoss compared Bitcoin to gold and Ether to oil

Bloomberg announced that Satoshi Nakamoto is alive and writes a book

A new site belonging to someone claiming to be the real Satoshi appeared online. However, this Satoshi has a different style of writing, and tries to assure everyone he's real without moving his genesis coins, so Bitcoin community doesn't believe it.

Does it really matter who Satoshi really is? Is he dead or alive? For Bitcoin and the whole crypto community there’s no difference, as the Genie is out of the bottle and roams free. The only thing that bothers crypto community is the number of his coins. Everyone fear his ability to crash the market completely, as the million of Bitcoins is enough to empty all order books instantly, there's simply no such demand yet.

But what are the odds of Satoshi reappearing? The chances are small yet. Satoshi, even if he is still alive, is a very smart man. Why would he appear now, when the things are barely set in motion when he could appear later, 10 years later, if all predictions come true, he'll be a trillionaire, but the market would be able to absorb all his coins more easily. Time doesn't really matter here, as he can identify himself at any moment by moving his coins.

Another scenario of his appearance is to proclaim that he wouldn't sell his coins all at once, only a small portion to maintain the living. The problem is that revealing himself and keeping his coins would make him a target number one in the world, unless he hires a top-class security, like some sort of a President. But does he need it? It's more likely that we won't see him for another 10 years or never.

The number of people withdrawing their money from crypto exceeded the deposits in April by 37%

But in May it flipped again, and many people think that all weak hands were washed out during these dips.

Weak hands washed out? That happens all the time. The more it will dip, the more people will be thinking it's going to zero. They sell at loss, withdraw, feeling burned, but get in again when it rallies again, buying at peak, repeat. It's a part of a normal market cycle. That's why many people can't trade, they don't have patience.

Crypto has attracted many retail investors, who were interested in getting rich quickly overnight, but it doesn't work that way. Many smart traders cashed out during the last rally to 20K, but many who bought at peak were waiting for a rebound to 25K, but it never happened. Now as by their nature they aren't very patient, we see them selling all the way down. When they get out completely, burned by their greed, we are likely to see a beginning of a new market cycle.

But when does this dip end? We don't know. And nobody knows, don't listen to anyone's predictions.

At a recent public event, Tyler Winklevoss said that Bitcoin is better than gold

It's also fungible and its amount is limited, but it's more portable. He compared, in the same way, Ethereum to digital oil and said that Litecoin is more like a testnet for Bitcoin. Winklevoss stated that BCH is unlikely to be added to Gemini exchange, because of its aggressiveness towards the main cryptocurrency.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are very influential people. It can be said that they feel the trends before they go mainstream. It was this way with social networks, and they knew Bitcoin would be big before it became big. With their acquisition of so many Bitcoins now they are billionaires, but only virtually. Can’t cash out without crashing the course. So it looks like they are trying to build the infrastructure to increase the adoption of cryptocurrencies, trading volumes, and the while market capitalization to be able to cash out in the end, selling their funds as high as possible.

No wonder that they like other crypto and don’t like BCH, as it’s very destructive for the whole crypto space. Even while Winklevoss own the same amount of BCH, they don’t support it, because they know — if something happens with BTC as a result of BCH team, nothing will take its place. It’s always great to see people with such a reasonable behavior, they build an infrastructure, making crypto a part of our everyday life, so it’s always good to know their opinion on various topics. If they succeed — we’ll be in profit too.

Bitcoin Reclaims Support Level as Analysts Eye Further Gains

After struggling to break above $8,000 for the past several days, Bitcoin was once again able to find some support within the upper-$7,000 region that held strong and allowed BTC to move back up above $8,000. Analysts are now noting that the cryptocurrency may climb higher in the near-term but are also noting that a resistance level that is just a short way above BTC’s current price may halt this fleeting rally and send the crypto plunging back below $8,000. Bitcoin Climbs Above $8,000, But Bears May Soon Return  At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up roughly 1% at its current price of $8,030, which marks a slight climb from its daily lows of $7,900 that were set overnight just prior to its early-morning surge towards $8,100. This slight surge further confirms the long-established notion that the upper-$7,000 region is a strong region of support, as BTC as consistently found notable buying pressure in this region. It is important to note that the lack of follow through from buyers who have been holding the support level at $7,800 may point to an underlying weakness for the cryptocurrency. Big Chonis, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, noted in a recent tweet that he believes Bitcoin will climb slightly further in the near term before it reaches a point of resistance that sends it reeling lower in the near-term. “$BTC – Happy Saturday… a little more up before a bit more down,” he explained while pointing to the below chart. $BTC – Happy Saturday… … a little more up before a bit more down… #bitcoin pic.twitter.com/JKe3VqfLjK — Big ChonisFlux Trading Group (@BigChonis) October 19, 2019 BTC May Be Caught in Possible Ascending Triangle The Cryptomist, another popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, explained in a recent tweet that she believes Bitcoin could be caught in an ascending triangle on a higher time frame, which could prove to be a bullish sign for its mid-term price action. “$Btc 2hr time frame: Sym triangle on RSI – Present on multiple time frames. Possible ascending triangle on 2hr here. We could see a breakout within 9hrs towards 8.1k…the falling wedge resistance, where things could get even more interesting for bulls,” she explained. $Btc 2hr time frameSym triangle on RSI – Present on multiple time frames Possible ascending triangle on 2hr here We could see a breakout within 9hrs towards 8.1k ..the falling wedge resistance, where things could get even more interesting for bulls pic.twitter.com/TiftKDJMqb — The Cryptomist (@TheCryptomist) October 19, 2019 The coming few hours and days could further elucidate Bitcoin’s mid-term trend, as its long period of consolidation around $8,000 may soon come to an end.
