I don't care about the busts. I am riding this pig wherever it takes me. If it tanks, I'll have a helluva story to tell. I'm sick of half measures. I'm swinging for the fences and If I strike out, so be it.  I won't be some mediocre drone living a life of quiet desperation. I believe in bitcoin and I'm going for broke, knowing the risks.

I remember that quote.  It mirrored my attitude at the time, though I didn't anticipate doubling down anywhere near as often as I did as the price continued to drop.

The guy has not been seen since a couple months after the statement.  At least on this forum with that username.  I hope he retained the attitude because at this point a person would be at least at about break-even no matter when they got in.

I've been in pretty high spirits in 2013.  For real! Smiley

I'll be even more happy when I re-claim my initial investment.  I've always expected to do that at around $100/BTC (if ever) but may do it sooner.  After than I can more easily just lay back and see where this thing goes without checking the ticker so regularly.

If I were not so opposed to sending Mt. Gox a full identity theft kit things would be easier.  As I've mentioned before, anyone who is in the Pacific NW and has around $10k in cash, gold, or silver they want to convert to BTC is welcome to PM me though I'll probably only get real serious at around $50-$60 range.  And I'll be arranging things carefully so there is a very minimal chance of getting ripped off.

Now if Mt. Gox goes full mainstream US that might solve my problem.  At that point I'll feel confident that their security measures are appropriate and some hacker is not going to assume my identity.  Of course I have every intention of paying my taxes, and the US Govt already has my passport data...they having issued the thing and all that.  And maybe at that point Mt. Gox would just give me my fucking money rather than stringing it out like Inaba claims they have done to him.

I'm confused.  What's the situation that means that even with the prices at the highest they've ever been, you're still not in profit?

MtGox have your BTC and won't let you withdraw them with proof of id?  If not, can't you withdraw them and sell them privately?

Or are you just saying that you started with $X, now have $Y worth of BTC, where Y >> X, but you don't consider if a real profit until you have at least $X back in 'real money'?

I don't really want/need a profit, but if I had no net fiat in and was sitting on a pile of BTC that would be ideal.  I continue to have attachment to my BTC and wish to retain a large percentage of them to see what comes down the pike.

Mt. Gox has 3 or 4 BTC I sent them but I've never done any trading on that platform.  It's futile to send more because they very well could old them hostage until I provide identification details which I do not trust them with.  And they certainly would require such data if I wished to trade and receive fiat.

Now, if Mt. Gox moves to 'the land of the free and the home of the brave', I'll probably entrust my identification data to them, but this is largely because at that point they will be having important customers who will be enforcing industry standard data accountability.  Or ideally, just completely outsourcing transaction authorizations to government bodies.  This works for me as a non-criminal who intends to pay my taxes.

LOL, this is the quote of his that I always remember.

UPDATE: got the money spent it in less than 60 seconds. I feel like a teenager having sex. Blew my load as if it were a race.

I wonder if this will be the last time I will get to buy under $10/BTC or if I top-ticked the bubble. time will tell. Either way, it was an expensive, unpleasant experience and a lesson I won't soon forget.

Nobody said it would be easy being a pioneer. I hope to someday look back on this and laugh (to my harem of supermodels in my 2 acre hot-tub). I have nothing but respect for the guys who saw the value of BTC early and got in at a fraction of my buy.  Well played, cryptonerds. Well played.

LOL! Bruce, that is hilarious.  Although not who I wanted to see this morning.

Not to promote a stereotype for which there's never been fool proof evidence, but how much does 500k BTC buy you at these prices???

Actually, you bring up a good point ? hmmm...

If some of you wealthy gentlefolk could find it in your hearts to throw a few satoshis my way I would be eternally grateful and save them until they might provide me with a hot meal or allow me to recobble my worn shoes. I tip my hat to you regardless.

OK, who jinxed us by resurrecting this thread again?   Smiley

If all the sovereign non-cryptocurrencies will eventually collapse from hyperinflation, you can't afford *not* to invest in Bitcoin...  See my blog at http://minetopics.blogspot.com/ .
