Are Bitcoin fundamentals getting stronger or weaker?
Well, I follow Bitcoin only since early 2017 but fundamentals (in equity you use quantitative and qualitative metrics) which are (directly or indirectly impacting Bitcoin) in my opinion: Thanks to Jameson Lopp and Willy Woo 2018 commits & contributors : Bitcoin 3274 , LND 3050 Bitcoin Lightning evolution + Blockstream Satellite launch Google scholar articles mentioning bitcoin in 2018 : 14,400 (from 136 in 2010, 4'680 2015) Segwit adoption near 50%: https://transactionfee.info/charts/payments/segwit ( full SegWit adoption will bring blocks up to 2-4 mb range ?) Mining difficulty strongly trending upward + GEForce GTX 1080 out of stock Blockchain industry Venture capital funding in 2018: 3B USD from 0.8B in 2017 and 0.3B in 2014 Growth rate of Bitcoin reddit subscribers +61% in 2018. FIO Protocol evolution : https://fio.foundation/ for a killer app, user friendly/mass adoption? Guys like Spencer Bogart, Pantera Capital, Mike Novogratz, Tom Lee, Anthony Pompliano, Tim Draper putting huge ressources on it. (Yes they are speculators I know, but speculators also help providing blood to the bitcoin's heart. Tony Robbins also talking about it Crypo ATM market doubled in 2018. Can book 550K hotels in 210 countries in the world using Bitcoin : https://Travala.com Guys like Andreas Antonopoulos, Erik Voorhees, Max Keiser supporting and educating us about Bitcoin on a daily basis. Maybe the price overshooted fundamentals in december 2017 but they seem improving not deteriorating. Sure for now sentiment is a strong "fundamental". Well I could write a book with all the Bitcoin direct on indirect fundamentals, ho thanks to the The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking by Saifedean Ammou. Hope they are getting stronger. "Every year Bitcoin survives, it demonstrates the resilience and robustness of the protocol, market, and industry that supports it."
Bitcoin Core supporters (e.g. Vortex) are delusional! BTC mempool has cleared b/c less people are using BTC.
I don't want to call out bs on just Vortex, there are many more people like Jameson lopp who are pushing the narrative that spamming of the network has stopped, and as a result there are almost zero unconfirmed BTC transactions in the mempool and low confirmation fees. However, this is not true, and I will use Vortex simply because i was too lazy to call everyone out. First of all, it is true - LN, segwit, batching, and less spamming on the network have all contributed to clearing out part of the mempool. But the main reason why the mempool has cleared is because less people are using BTC plain and simple. The Facts: 1) Here are charts on the number of transactions over time on BTC network taken from Vortex's twitter. As to why he was retweeting these charts, i have no clue because they simply make my point stronger: https://twitter.com/lopp/status/966377933051895808 https://twitter.com/bitcoin_bh/status/966693648841740294 Both charts show number of transactions have been decreasing steadily since December. 2) The price of bitcoin has also been decreasing since December. Simple economics shows us that if there were more ppl using BTC, more ppl would buy BTC; therefore, price would drive up. However, the very opposite has been happening. The demand for bitcoin has decreased, which is causing the price to go down. So Vortex keep trying to slander other ppl. This tweet is just filled with fud. We all know the truth man, your just making yourself look dumb. https://twitter.com/theonevortex/status/966686594542419969 🙌🏽

In the long run, the economic benefits will benefit the United States because we will eventually It has the most bitcoin.” The first reaction of the Twitter community to Jameson Lopp’s tweets was that this might be a scam, but there were some interesting messages in the reply below. Xsquared Ventures partner Brad Mills tried to mathematically calculate Lopp’s proposal: “Every year (due to the distribution of bitcoin spending) $ 3.9 trillion. At the end of your first term, US Treasury bonds will reach $ 37 trillion The market value of Bitcoin will reach $18 trillion in the fourth year, nearly $1 million per bitcoin. This is actually mathematically feasible considering government spending.” Facebook is negotiating with members of the Libra Association and expects more support According to the Financial Times, as regulatory pressures increase, supporters of Facebook’s cryptocurrency project Libra are becoming more and more nervous.

Pro-Segwit Bitfury Overtakes Antpool to Become World’s Largest Miner
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 57%.
Segregated Witness supporting miners and mining pools are taking over Bitcoin Unlimited miners such as Antpool and HaoBTC. Due to multiple bug exploitations and controversial development errors from the Bitcoin Unlimited team, the entire bitcoin market including bitcoin exchanges, wallets, users, developers and miners are switching over to Bitcoin Core team's scaling solution. Particularly, the Bitfury group, leading blockchain technology company and mining facility operator, officially took over Antpool to become the industry's largest miner in terms of hash power. According to the most recently updated hashrate distribution chart, Bitfury accounts for 15 percent of bitcoin's hashpower, 1.5 percent higher than that of Antpool. While Bitfury continues to be one of the most respected and highly regarded companies within the bitcoin industry for their innovative projects including their successful testing of the Lightning Network in late 2016, the major factor that allowed Bitfury to overtake Antpool was Bitmain co-founder Jihan Wu's questionable statements and strategies. Wu's theory on off-chain transactions decreasing miner profitability was later proven wrong by multi-signature technology development firm BitGo's lead engineer Jameson Lopp and bitcoin researcher Christian Decker. "Lightning does not reduce the fees that the miners may collect, it increases their reach into transactions that they could not otherwise collect. Lightning requires strong guarantees that the transactions will be settled in a certain time frame, for its security. Hence, Lightning will always attach higher than average fees to the on-chain transactions for setup and settlement of its channel."
