Hello,

I'm new to this and am interested in the investment potential to be made from bitcoins.
I'd love to hear any stories you may have of how you purchased at $0.5 and sold higher.
Are these a safer/better investment than stocks and shares?
What will happen to the value of the bitcoin when we reach the 21 million mark and no more are issued? Will they be divided? Does this concept have a time limit?
Any answers you can give me will be highly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Sam Esque

This is all very interesting

Hello,

I'm new to this and am interested in the investment potential to be made from bitcoins.

It's high risk and, so far, high reward.

Are these a safer/better investment than stocks and shares?

It's not SAFE, it could go down to 0.01 tomorrow.

What will happen to the value of the bitcoin when we reach the 21 million mark and no more are issued? Will they be divided? Does this concept have a time limit?

You shouldn't care too much about that, as you won't probably be alive anyway.

Direct investment into BTC:

Hight risk, it can go to 0 tomorrow.
Potentially humongous long term reward. It is not inconceivable that 1 BTC would worth tens of thousands of dollars just a few years down the road. Bitcoin valuation is growing exponentially for some time know, the only question here is how long will it keep growing at existing exponential rate.


Investment into BTC mining:

Less risk, (bitcoin valuation still can go to 0, but there is still value to be salvaged from mining operations in such a case)
Potentially humongous long term reward. As above.

It's not going to $0.01 tomorrow, believe me, but yes I agree, mining is the best choice for those who wish to avoid the most risk.  I personally recommend buying a bitcoin or two and mining as well, for the long term.

That's not the only question, albeit a very important one Wink. Will it be linear after that? polynomial? logarithmic? geometric? periodic? Will it be positive or negative?

It will always be positive exponential, reflecting the growth of the world economy. Perhaps 3-5% per year. Perhaps up to 20% if there are any singularities.

Far too early to say that. We haven't even seen any serious threats to the continued functioning of the economy materialize. Many uncertainties remain.
