In fact was envisaging posting a similar chart :-)
I was also aware though, that if the Log timeframe didn't work, we hit the same line (on the linear scale) at the end of August...I don't want to wait that long for another bull run :-/

Off course those lines are hand drawn and I mostly focused on the next days. I doubt that we will see $1000 so quickly again.

Is the government auction news really bullish, though? Sure, people will be bidding on the bitcoins, but won't the 30k coins coming back into circulation dilute the market value? I'm honestly not sure.

The bullish thing is that those large investors will hold these coins long-term. And there will a lot of media attention about this event.

I think everyone is making it more bearish than it is. No one buying 30 Mill in coins is going to turn around and dump on a exchange... that would be beyond stupid. The want to buy a rising market and have more intensive than anyone to make sure we make new highs. It will be a market Maker buying those coins.

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. For some reason, I had the idea that it would be small investors bidding on these coins, but it seems more reasonable to think market makers would be buying these up, since it would be difficult to get that many coins otherwise.

You need to send the government 200K US Dollar up front!

"All interested buyers must register with the US Marshals Service (USMS) in order to be eligible for the auction. Aspiring participants must provide the following to the federal agency:"

"A $200,000 deposit sent by wire transfer from a bank located in the US"
"A copy of a government-issued photo ID"
"A manually signed PDF copy of the bidder registration form."

"The $200,000 deposits sent by the winning bidders will be retained by the USMS and used toward the final purchase price, though the individuals could lose their deposit under certain circumstances."
