The value of BTC kept mostly steady or grew very slowly during the past week after the big crash mid-July. But today something weird happened: in less than 6 hours the BTC jumped by more than 12% since last week (Edited 12 hrs later: the race continued past 18% jump). This was a weekly peek which ended
about 10% only 5% below the absolute maximum from exactly one month ago.
I don’t follow Bitcoin news that eagerly and can offer no explanation, but it is most likely due to SegWit lock-in making everybody enthused once more.
So, What’s So Important?
The important thing for me is that I was able to sell 0.02204635 BTC and get about €48.- in exchange. By no accident, this is more or less exactly the cost of electricity for my mining rigs for 3 months. Whatever happens with the cost of BTC between today and the end of October, I will not be losing money. Every satoshi mined will be a satoshi earned.
From the very start of my experiment, my Number 1 priority has been not to lose money. Today’s event will help me keep that promise to myself for at least 3 months from now. Mission accomplished.

I am a small business owner from Bulgaria. I have been tinkering with personal computers ever since I was a kid. I feel enchanted by Bitcoin technology; last time I felt this excited was some 23 years ago when I first started surfing the internet using a 28.8k modem.
