That will surely give rise to all sorts of conspiracy theories. Any time BTC price goes down, the HODLers will cry "Soros did it!".

a few months back (January) some US banks (eg JP Morgan Chase) stopped letting people buy cryptocurrency with credit cards.
I thought this meant you couldn't use one of their cards to buy cryptocurrency, period, but it actually means they treat it as a cash advance rather than a purchase thereby earning lots of fees for JP Morgan Chase

I think it's over. Nobody's wanted to breed with my cryptokitties for months.

Maybe just a lull in the market? Or it's not breeding season?

Ask Soros if he can help, it seems he has recently made up his mind about crypto currencies.

i think that people who are actually playing on cryptocurrencies are super-brave. I don't have a nerve for it. I don't want to have them anymore. I've bought 10 BTC last summer when it was 2000 dollars. This winter i was super happy but didn't sell it in time and now i want to save what i have. I've looked into more stable investitions and i'm very much into buying a house in Greece - i saw some apartments that are around 10 BTC. I trhink i'd rent it for a couple years and sell when the price would build up. The prognosis for greek real estate market is very good here's the article
