I think this has to do with Iranian rials and the hoover action going on.  Won't know until the dust settles later today.

Yup, I noticed last week 1785 is the "red line," every time it's crossed that in the past couple weeks it's triggered an aggressive beat-down.

Pretty clear TPTB don't want AU leading with 18XX. They won't be able to stop it forever, though.

Fox News no less:

“The free Obama phone is an important program, especially for low income families that would otherwise not have access to basic communications,” the homepage of reads.

The site does, however, clarify that Obama did not start the program and that there's no such thing as an "Obama phone."

"It’s true that government provides free cellphones to the poor and disabled people," the site reads. "But the Obama part is not true as Obama didn’t initiate this program. It’s on the run [sic] since the administration of Reagan."

Just for one brief moment, it would be SO cool to know what the fuck was going on. Seems to be a pretty elusive moment these last few years. Does not appear to be one government official or ranking banker in the known world who will tell anything close to the truth (except maybe the Czech pres), and 'official data' is manipulated garbage, to be revised closer to sort-of reality next week or next month.

I think even the algos are getting confused. (Horrors!)

Bitcoin is utterly dependent upon both a functioning Internet and power grid. Ask anyone in India how they liked having their funds locked up in cyberspace.

...if you can't use or convert BitCoins because the infrastructure is unavailable then your money has been essentially stolen anyway (if you can't hold it you don't own it).

Bitcoin is great as a currency, but it does have some SERIOUS risks.
