The opportunity for them is massive, imagine being able to absorb all the airdrop or most of it, from weak hands cashing out, when you know in advance you have future plans in store, and good support from other miners. Some core devs are saying the miners have no real power, but I disagree wholeheartidly. China also holds a lot of power and influence, and I wouldn't be surprised to see $BCH surge as $XBT tops after the end of the current weekly uptrend. What isn't clear to me yet, is how the NYA signers will approach the deadline to hard fork to increase block size. In any event, and thinking of all possible outcomes, what I see is chaos and disruption of the current status quo, which already started with the birth of $BCH.
Best of luck,
I think this is being accumulated, miners mining at a loss are not dumb...it's not only attackers I believe.
$BCH acts as a great BTC hedge...
I rebought my $BCH stake from the airdrop at 0.0964
My exit was over 0.13.
I'm out of $BCHBTC, had bought recently at 0.092. Exit: 0.1156
The trend is up for 8 more days at least, fundamentals are now interesting, with the 2x team cancelling their segwit fork coin, maybe they end up teaming up with Jihan and Ver and propping $BCH...
I'm waiting and watching now. Hard to say what will happen to it.
