How much money would it take to margin call the BTS shorts and kick of a short squeeze?
How much money would it take to wipe out the margin longs?

Is there any way to estimate this?

It seems like all of this margin trading is just begging for a whale to clean up, and it appears that is what is going on.

I just never got around to figuring out how whales make money via manipulation.  It seems very risky.  If you were a whale with 250 BTC what would you do to profit from all of this?  (Aside from the obvious margin long BTS :) )

Is 250 BTC even enough to do anything meaningful?   Or do you need more like 1000 BTC.   Given the size of the BTS order books, 250 BTC would be 2x the current buy side.

Someone get margin called again or something?

?

It is been happening on an hourly bases the whole day....in one market or another.

Very true.

It feels to me like someone margin bought it up to 870 and then got margin called an hour later down to 650.  To which I would say: everyone stop margining BTS. :P

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

some of you are very entertaining about bitcoin. Those posts remind me of Tulip Mania. We have to remember bitcoin has more liquidity than in 2014 or 2013. It's not a Netherlands tulip. I think it's steady price around $300 says something about the approximate demand for bitcoin. And why would that variable change drastically? - I don't see why.

A 30 minute close above 800 sats here generates the short term buy signal.

Not that anyone cares anymore, or that it will actually work, because whales will probably just keep dumping it to hell anyway and margin calling everyone. :P

BTC can rise and rise and rise. Why not $36 billion? Perhaps then BitShares will finally move to 360 million where it belongs.
