DanV, as well as multiple other elliotwave chartists that I follow, are predicting a low in the 200-250 range, a couple months from now. It is a good count, and a pretty reasonable prediction, imo.
There is a massive difference between the $200-250 range, and $50. The ultra bearish attitude that many of you here have towards bitcoin hurts our perception in the eyes of bitcoiners, imo. If you want someone who is interested in bitcoin to become interested in bitshares, the absolute WORST thing you can do is tell them that bitcoin is going to $50.
Far better would be to predict something like 'while Bitcoin goesover $1000 in the next bull run, Bitshares will go to $1. While Bitcoin goes up 10x, Bitshares will go up 100x'. This indicates Bitshares potential to massively increase in value while not immediately prejudicing them against you and evoking a hostile reaction by telling them the thing that the most idiot troll bears have been telling them for months.
If you would all be less hostile towards bitcoin, it would help us gain better adoption among the current crypto community.
