First time to start a thread here but I haven't seen this posted.

I hope this is in the right folder. It's mostly to do with speculation.

Looking through the traders' histories gives a good insight into the different types of traders.

Some are obvious like the steady red line of a miner.

Some are sad like the ones who sold out in late 2012.

I thought of putting this in Off-Topic but since it's about speculation I put it here. Blitz, feel free to move it if need be.

I'm a baseball fan and a Bitcoin believer and I see several parallels.

I already mentioned that the dichotomy between the speculators and BTC faithful reminds me of a team's dedicated fans versus self-styled students of the game. The faithful look down on the analysts as not being "true fans" while the analysts look down on the fans as being "homers".

I see a similar dichotomy between trend analysis believers with their charts and arrows versus news-based "gut instinct" speculators as being similar to baseball's split between Moneyball statistical analysis and old-school hands-on scouting.

Any thoughts?

Just curious.

I read somewhere that the average Bitcoiner is a male, white 30-something libertarian.

I also read about a Bitcoin-accepting merchant who said that in her experience, Bitcoiners were of all ages and lifestyles.

Am I the only old age pensioner here?
