Real reason for the dump is simple and the solution is too.

The world markets are becoming very unstable and bitcoin was making a move from slow organic buying. The elite and banking cabal can NOT have a hedge against their failing system so will use derivative exchanges and whales to scare everyone away.

The solution is for people to BUY SPOT btc and remove immediately from exchange so they can't take your coins and lend it to a seller which causes artificial supply.

BUY SPOT.. and move it to wallet is the only way to beat them.

Guys come on. It took me two minutes. Let’s get this ETF approved. There are nearly 1 Million If us and yet there are a mere 90 comments. If you care about bitcoin’s development please leave a comment. Simple how-to guide in this post

Guys, this is a very important step for bitcoin/cryptocurrency. We all want growth, are you willing to spend two minutes of your time to help do something big? If not for the tech at least do it so your holdings go up in value :-p

For those of you who don’t want to read to figure it out, follow these steps:

1) Send an email to: rule-comments@sec.gov

2) Paste this into the subject line: Release No. 34-83520; File No. SR-CboeBZX-2018-040

3) Send a basic or wordy email about why you think bitcoin/cryptocurrency/Blockchain tech is good for the world. At the very least say, “Please approve this ETF because i believe bitcoin is an important creation and needs to have the chance to grow” or something like that, please don’t quote that verbatim.

Here is a really great comment to model yours off of if you want more things to say:

https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-cboebzx-2018-040/cboebzx2018040-168298.htm

And finally here is the link to see others comments/how to submit on the official site: https://www.sec.gov/comments/sr-cboebzx-2018-040/cboebzx2018040.htm

From madbanker1, “Seeing as the SEC is mostly concerned about protecting investors, one angle to include in comments is the fact the lack of an ETF does not prevent people from investing in bitcoin, and that without an ETF, retail investors are currently required to take great risk when investing in bitcoin :)”

Similarly, if you want to go the extra mile, read this comment and listen to him.
