- BitPay Reveals it Paid ESPN Bitcoin for Sponsorship
ESPN's slogan: "The Worldwide Leader In Sports". They are a U.S.-based global cable and satellite television sports channel. BitPay executive chairman Tony Gallippi announced that his company paid for its upcoming college football bowl game sponsorship in Bitcoin .
"The sponsorship's price was undisclosed, but it likely came in at about $500,000 a year over the course of the three-year contract." Tampa Bay Business Journal has estimated that its full contract with the broadcaster is estimated at roughly $1.5m over the course of three years.
Last high today was $515 after a $487 low several hours ago. We are above a two year .

As I previously said in my last update from August 28:
"We are getting bearish. The bulls run out of steam."
Now we had the (start of the) anticipated correction. Time will tell if we bounce around $450 or if we fall deeper, rendering this overall bullish idea invalid. The MACD is still bullish. The StochRSI is very bearish as of today.
also news lately unfortunately did not drive the market as it use to, so that piece of news will not do much sadly.
I was very very bearish. I saw the price falling since 1 month ago when we broke $610 . Therefore I posted my short targets (and they have been met). I expected the price to bounce at $550 to $500 at least a little bit, but it didn't happen. The price was falling and falling with no signs of stopping and I got so bearish that I posted my chart "Bitcoin is doomed" chart . And "Bitcoin price doom analysis - Why Bitcoin might crash to $333" . That was the peak of my bearishness.
The only reason why I posted a few bullish chart ideas with titles like "One Secret Chart Of Bitcoin Bulls" or "A new Bitcoin bull market?", "Short-term buying opportunity" was that I wanted to keep a balanced view. So my overall view was extremely bearish, despite posting bullish charts.
But when I finally noticed some buyers at around $440 I got more and more bullish again. Each time I found more reasons to be bullish I posted another chart. On top of that I experimented with more ways to do technical analysis. Since I didn't keep those experiments to myself and because the market got much sooner less bearish and more optimistic than I expected - all of this resulted in the many charts I posted lately.
If you only want to watch one of my charts right now - please watch this one :
Ok, therefore instead of posting all my ideas to the public once I have them you recommend me to keep my ideas private and then just "boom" come out with the chart when it's a very high chance that the forecast will come true. Yes, that could make me look like I'm more accurate.
But the downside is that I can't say I saw this coming very early, before other people noticed the changing trend, when I wait for so much confirmation that it's a boring prediction everyone shares already, when I publish my chart after a long delay to have more confirmation of the trend.
