Sign Of The Top? Hedge Fund Hiring Junior Bitcoin Execution Trader

Tyler Durden's picture


With Bitcoin having almost completed another double off the Dec 17 lows... is hardly surprising that the fast-money volatility-chasing world of 2-and-20-ers is reaching out for a Bitcoin Execution Trader.


(h/t @Besvinick)


The San Francisco hedge fund is hiring a "Junior" position, which suggests they already have a "senior" trader who has got tired of trading the digital currency 24 hours a day and is looking to offload the 24x7x365 duties to a lower-level employee with "strong analytic skills" and who is "willing to work odd hours including weekends and late nights/early mornings."

It's the NSA's dream project.


It's almost as good as having an OnStar probe up your wazzo.

While bitcoin is currently more scarce than gold, geologists are searching around the globe for more deposits that would be economical to mine.  Drills are turning 24/7, hell I wouldn't be surprised if someone produced a reality show so everyone could watch.

Do you mean Edward Snowden?  If he's the real deal then he's a hero for what he did.

Buen dia everyone.

Would the owner of:


please ID yourself (via my moniker at gmail or comment at my blog -- you can delete the comment I will still get the message via email).  I would like to pay you back and/or open up a dialog.

(I have a guess who you are, but please prove it to me)

(This is only if you want your BTC back or even if you care: 0.05 BTC)


Anyone else who knows a lot about the Blockchain and would like to help me with my next article ("Fun with Bitcoins for Beginners: Part Six"), please do the same!

Thank you very much.

True, its going to be a good year. When bitcoin exceeds Gold Parity and zooms to $3,000+, a lot of lower-tier holders are going to be millionaires. The anti-bitcoin rants really aren't worthy of much in response, are they? I suppose I'll jump in now and then, seems that Wall Street will pick up where we left off, pushing our personal fortunes to the sky.

That's an odd feeling, having the corrupt bastards actually helping you, isn't it?

Damn I love Bitcoin.

when you use words like, lower-tier holders, you do realize that is the language of a pyramid scheme...

My Bitcoin, which art in cyberspace, hallowed be thy blockchain.  Thy network come, thy adoption be done, on Ebay as it is in Mt. Gox.  Give us this day our daily price bubble, and forgive us our cash transactions, as we forgive those who question thy inevitability, and lead us not into Litecoin, but deliver us from the goldbugs.  Amen.

Hail Bitcoin, hard to trace, the Satoshi is with thee.  Blessed art thou amongst cybercurrencies, and blessed is the fruit of thy virtual womb, Fonestar.

Holy Bitcoin, mother of cybergeeks, pray for us trendsuckers now and at the hour of our e-savings' death, Amen.

Seriously, Fonestar, you need to lay-off the BTC. Get help. There are counselors out there, who'd be happy to talk some sense into you. Fine, Bitcoin is good, and Fonestar loves Bitcoin...but MAN, give it a rest already.

The site I check has BTC going from 740 -> $815 currently.

Still, if you are trading it, and were somehow able to buy the dip, then you have done well.   Assuming you exit the trade at this moment.

No trade is successful until successfully exited.

Some prototypes were around, like BMoney.  Bitcoin is the first of what is called Crypto-currencies and Satoshi wrote that he created it as a response to the 2007/2008 meltdowns.  

Today is Bitcoin's official 5th birthday.   The genesis block was mined by Satoshi 5 years ago today and contains the text: 

"The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks"

If you want to see an asshole, simply say something stupid and look no further than me.

There were many contenders before bitcoin but none could solve the problem of double spending. Other similar projects include: e - gold (1996), digital money Trust, ripple, and ven
