News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Everytime I see this thread it just makes me wonder what Atlas is doing, if he's still into Bitcoin and if Matt still talks to him on Skype.

Many of the early adopters that I know have cashed out the amount that they initially invested so that they are left will all house money...and are just watching from the sidelines right now

bingo - this describes my situation perfectly. I actually have cashed out some of the house money also, but still hold a small amount. Mainly because I believe in the concept, but also to "give back" a little.

What's house money? One thing I find interesting is what will happen if we see another massive boom price rise. Will many of the second wave of bitcoin investors cash out and then leave or will they keep holding? I think there's sadly a lot of get rich quicksters so many would likely dump their stash if we hit in excess of 1k again quite rapidly.

i think that very thing - get rich quicksters - is part of what's holding a rapid rise back. they're desperate to profit, so they're selling a bit on any spike, thus shutting it down before it gathers steam. so we have more to overcome to really boom.

i still think it'll happen eventually, but my guess at time scales is totally destroyed. i figured for sure it'd happen by now. i'm glad it hasn't though - time for me to actually accumulate some!

I wish people would stop selling.
If we all HODL for a couple of years & limit supply the price would be great.

That is a good point why would all the whales and smaller traders keep selling and make money doesn't it sound stupid making money?

That is why they keep selling buddy because they are manipulating the market to their own selfish needs, once we get more adoption that will be harder for them to do but for now we just have to go with the flow and ride the waves knowing a lot of money is interested in this tech.

If there was a big need for Bitcoin and we all held sure it would rise because demand would be stronger but there is not quite the need at the moment, i hope there will be in future.

That really might help but thats not gonna happen ever. We buy a currency so that we can move it around, buy stuff with it or other things.

It is far too early to say. And being elitist should not be a goal in of itself, but rather a consequence of good decision making and life practices. Education yourself (like we all did for Bitcoin) should be one such decision/life practice.

And approximately .2 nowadays so this is a testament to the newer folks and what this coin can and likely will do going forward in terms of growth. Consider what buying 50 btc was back then and what it is now, go from there in the procedings.

That at least shows how flexible BTC might be but, man, 50 BTC for two hours of work.
Now it's just impossible to believe.

Those were nice times and they seem so far away from now.

But we're patient.

Dude, I waited for months to buy my first bitcoins, and was kicking myself because the price doubled in that time frame. I bought my first batch at 6.5 cents. Pity I spent almost all of them before $1, I ended up missing out on most of the appreciation, even though they were more than 10 times as valuable.  There are very few investments in all of human history that compare to the first four years of Bitcoin.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

that website is bizonkers. i have literally never seen anything like that in my life. i didn't even know that was technically possible. did you guys hire freaking actors, photographers and cinematographers for the wallpaper of your website!?!?

Rep Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=381041
If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited? Is there any process, procedure or ritual through which an immoral action can be legitimately transformed into a moral one with out changing the character of the action itself?

Wish I could go back to 2011 and buy some coins, that way I really could still be part of the new wealthy elite. These days it's more of a poor house, to be honest...
