    I'm guessing the exchanges have just stopped trading/got a backlog of transactions to get through? Prices seem to have stayed within a couple of % for the past 10-12 hours, and my accounts don't seem to be updating.

    I'm seeing plenty of movement on a 5m chart - decent buy wall at £12,876 with no real sell pressure until £13,050.

    I feel like I should be putting my RX 480 to work. It would help heat the loft room where my PC is.

    With which coin? Everything I have in LTC, BTC and ETH has been flat-lining the past 12-16 hours - I'm still technically in profit if I sold up right now, so i'm not worried about holding out for while, but it's a bit of a damp squib after catching that Litecoin wave at the perfect time (well, almost perfect - could have made another £30-40 if Coinbase didn't faff around with my verification).

    You need to diversify: according to Blockfolio's 24-hour report, Bitcoin is down 2.07%, Litecoin down 4.08%, and my poor Iota down 2.49% - but I'm up 6.34% overall 'cos Monero's up 5.71% and Ripple's up 13.88%.

    Zcash would have done you proud, too - I haven't got any, but I watch it and it's up 20.44%.

    27% now. I started off with roughly equal values of BTC and XRP (technically slightly more XRP, 'cos I threw £200 at it when you first mentioned it); now I have around 50% more in XRP than BTC.

    Still leaving it where it is, though. I ain't trying to time no markets - that's how I lost a chunk of my BTC stash in the first place!

    Litecoin took a dive, used up the last of my monthly Coinbase allowance to top up while it's low. I'm not all in (have an equal share in BTC and a smaller chunk in ETH), and I made enough in the rush earlier in the week to feel pretty comfortable, but if it does shoot back up to £280-290 (or higher), i'll be pretty happy.

    Now we wait...

    I now have more than twice as much in Ripple as Bitcoin. @Mankz, I would like to subscribe to your newsletter...

    Well, I'm up $2800 in 8 days. Thank you, coins. :)

    Shame only 50% of that is mine as it's a split investment, but I'm mega chuffed with what I've achieved. :D
