How do you guys plan on being a 'wealthy elite'?
Maybe if you have at least 1000 btc

All it takes is 1

I am NOT trying to screw up anybody's wishes, yet I would like to hear how 1 BTC is going to make the holder a wealthy elite, and by when.. and how much will it be? 

I do understand the theory of BTC having the potential to take over about 25% or more of known currencies transactions and storage of value functions - however, something like that would be quite a ways into the future, if ever.

I also understand the theory of 7 Billion people in the world and only 21 million bitcoin (some bitcoin will be lost or forever removed from circulation) - but the 1 BTC to be a wealthy elite assumes fairly wide adoption of bitcoin and desire for bitcoin by the world... and acceptance by the current status quo wealthy to transfer some of their wealth into bitcoin.

So, by when will 1 BTC make a person a wealthy elite..?  and how much will it be?  and by the way, I don't expect to live forever, either, so I would like to enjoy some of this wealthy elite status while I still have some youth and energy.

99% of people don't (really) care shit about gold, but still if you have 1/21,000,000 of the world's gold (approx 9 kg), you are pretty well off. Not rich yet, but 10 times that amount makes you really rich. Even if 99% don't care.

If BTC does as well as gold (which was my last year revelation, considering fractional reserve and such - which is only now coming mainstream) having BTC1 is good and BTC10 is really rich.

If it becomes more accepted than gold is now, even BTC1 could suffice. But because the road there is so bumpy, make sure you have at least BTC10 now so that you don't squander all in the speed bumps ahead Smiley

Yes, and we know that bitcoin has a lot more potentially useful features, as compared with gold, so I agree with you about that.   

I know in the wall observer thread you have given your bitcoin price projections for 2014, and I believe I had seen some of your various bitcoin price projections beyond that.. so I kind of have ideas from where you are coming.

 Generally, I agree with your optimism about bitcoin, and certainly each of us have different expectations and experiences (whether relating to bitcoin or other areas).  Even though you are quite a bit more bullish than me, I would prefer for some of your scenarios to come to fruition rather than my own.

Actually, another thing that I have noticed is that a different perspective regarding BTC likely evolves after achieving a bit of a profit cushion... so I am definitely looking forward to that day, with my current bitcoin portfolio.

In the future:
wealthy = ~2 to 10 BTC
Wealthy elite = ~100+ BTC

For your grand-kids the numbers needed will probably be lower.
FYI: A ticket on Satoshi's spaceship (when he returns) will cost at least 10 to 20 BTC.

It is strange to see all the negativity about Bitcoin in the "Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion" when it has gone from 0 to where it is and with all the potential and talent that has a vested interested in Bitcoin success

Show her the thread.  Help her believe.  Smiley  Tell her that someday in the near future she will be able to spend only $1 for a pair of $100 shoes or maybe even $1 for a $1000 handbag if she just holds onto Bitcoin for a few years.

I try my best to convince her.   Tongue

She gets scared easily, thinks it's too risky.  I try to explain the benefits, but she says a little investment is okay for now.  To put more into bank savings not bitcoin savings.

It's an ongoing struggle, but at least I convinced her to download Bitcoin Core and buy 1 BTC for herself.  Just to see where it goes.  Grin

I'll take the small victories.  I think when her girlfriends and family start talking about it, she'll take me more seriously.  I genuinely think she thinks I'm crazy.   Cheesy

In a good way though...she lets me do my thing.  Once we spike up to $1000, I'm sure I'll be cursing her to holy hell though!   Angry Grin

This was the biggest mistake of my life. Either be optimistic, or leave it be. Both is fine, but you will regret "a little optimistic".

Banks are not inherently evil. [...] The business of a legitimate bank is to get money loaned out on a risk appropriate basis, and make money for their depositors via interest. Doing this fosters development and adoption.
Correct.

There are a great many reasons why banking would be very good for bitcoin and other cryptos.
Incorrect.

Only a fool would lend a highly volatile currency like bitcoin is, since if it goes one way they pay you back easily but they're worth less, and if they go the other way they just won't be able to pay you back at all.

Plus, there's no bitcoin ecosystem, which is one of the reasons they are so volatile, so it would be silly to ask a loan in that currency anyway: you should get loans in the currency you are actually going to base your businss on.
