There are a lot of people selling to take profits in 2017

This is common investor behavior, it happens in every asset class. The Dow went down yesterday as well for the same reason. There are good tax reasons to sell some profits in 2017 and pay the estimated tax early – to avoid penalties. Especially with Bitcoin Cash and the uncertainty of how that will be taxed. There are also a lot of investors who are going to report and pay taxes on everything they bought and sold in the crypto world.

This isn't a "Crash" – this is normal investor behavior.

This is also just my opinion, but I have been investing in many things over the past 2 decades.

Happy New Year!

Guys I’m selling

Alfa Romeo GT, 2008, 2.0 litre, 16 valve, alloy wheels, new tyres, new brakes, new fuel injectors, air con, leather interior. South London, selling for 0.73 BTC.

Edit: 54,000 miles, pics

Shout out to technifocal, have yourself a fine day bro
