Who is buying?



  • @wrapper 19800.com is the main market of ftc in china.

    What are they buying with?

    90 % BTC
    8% Chinese Yuan

    Coingeko
    https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/feathercoin/trading_exchanges

    No No No… unfortunately wrapper this is wildly inaccurate…coingecko need to update their site.

    19800 trades FTC and has trading fees for FTC. This leads me to think the volume there is real, no one can trade FTC back and fourth and fake volume like how they could with zero free trading.

    19800 is leading the way for FTC and trade volume in general. Trex follows closely behind…

    I watch these kind of stats almost every day and I’d say on “bad” days or days with very little trading… 19800 will have 70% of the global FTC volume…trex will take 28% and the other 2% will be shared amongst the very low volume exchanges.

    On good days like today where the FTC market in general seems quite active…
    19800 has a 58% share of the global FTC volume…Trex now has about 38% and the rest share the small amount of %


    A lot of people say that 19800 will “start the pump” or whatever…basically the gist is that 19800 will lead the way and I personally dont think that’s true.

    I think the real action and whales will be on Trex, 19800 only trades FTC/CNY and is useless to anyone not living in China and using CNY.

    Of course there could be Mega whales playing trying to lead the price on 19800 and then selling on Trex for BTC ?


    Edit: When I say “Trex” It’s short for Bittrex.

    I missed out on those cheap coins the other day!



  • I googled who owns most feather coins,

    https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-feathercoin-addresses.html

    If i understand this right, 3 out of 5 started buying feathercoin this year and managed to buy 20 million coins.

    How this is even possible? And If someone buying so much how come it didnt reflect in the price of FTC?

    Probably some hedge fund managers, investing around, hoping for high risk high return scenarios? Well its good for feathercoin that some big players are involved, but cant they manipulate the price?

    That doesnt mean they just bought, it means they just moved them into that address. It could be someone who has owned them for years and is just moving stuff around. Or it could be an exchange thats moving coins around.

    Thanks for your reply, Prices are going crazy today, gonna develop a heart condition, i guess its better to have a discipline, not to look at prices everyday, buy once a week whatever the price on payday and analyse in 2020. Then either retire or carry on few years more until mission accompolished (lol).

    But i see some crazy coins going up and staying up (not all pump and dump) which have no community, no website etc, who buys these coins or how do people even know about them?

    Comparatively Feathercoin should be worth much much more. Why doesn’t it though?

    Comparing to what? People take “currency” in cryptocurrency too literally. Cryptos are not backed by any real assets, so they’re not currencies by definition. Even the flakiest of the fiat currencies are backed by the power of the state (the issuer) to collect taxes. Cryptocurrencies are backed by nothing, so their prices float against nothing. It’s a virtual asset with limitied supply and its price is only determined by supply and demand. There’s no intrinsic value.



  • @taurus

    Very well put but comparing to other top 100 crypto currencies, feathercoin should be worth more. By take on why it currently isn’t is:

    1. Pump and Dump and 51 % Attack - Happened in early stages but still it did happen and majority of trust was lost, and investors become vary of investing. But it was successfully dealt with so investors should look pass that.

    2. No Major Backers: We (desperately trying to fit in -lol) don’t have major investors, hedge fund, ico investment etc. But i guess this could arise Pump and Dump which feathercoin is against of. I assume there are hundred regular investors, Leaving the general public as their customer, which most don’t know about, that’s why we probably need advertising or famous person on board.

    3, Not based in silicone valley and not being able to be seem to be making so called “disruption” doesn’t help either.



  • @vigospqr,

    Agree with all your points. As I pointed out, the only way to increase coin “value” is to boost demand. I got involved with Feathercoin only recently and unfortunately my first impression is not that great. The Mac wallet takes forever to sync, there’s no mobile wallet. I’m encouraged that there’s an active forum and that the developers are involved though.

    We are aware of the Sync Issues. This is fixed in the next version of FTC.

    We have an android wallet out.

    We(mostly me) are actively looking for an iOS/Swift dev that can help port BreadWallet.
