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

Early adopters can definetely say that, those whk had kept the coins are part of wealthy elite now. I'm not sure for the rest of us, now it's much harder to accumulate larger amount of Bitcoins unless you are performing some illegal activities. Maybe if price goes crazy up and then just a few Bitcoins would be enough to get rich.

This was posted on 2011 so fast forward right now in 2016, OPs guess is pretty accurate . If some of them really keep their bitcoins up until now then they are probably get huge profits from it . As for us who just started, There is no guarantee that we wil get lots of profits for the upcoming years but the chances that it will happen is high that's why I will hold my bitcoins .

I believe that some of them are already millionaires and some of them arent. I guess I am out of their league of elites since I only have 0.06 btc on my wallet. My only chance to be part of their group is when bitcoin reaches 100,000,000 $ each in the market. If that price is the price now then I am a millionaire already. But that is possible maybe 10 years from now so I will hold more satoshis so when the time it reaches that price then thats the time I will spend them.

Anonymous (Atlas?) was a visionary back in 2011 and this topic is one of my all time favorite topics on bitcointalk. and we are now seeing that bitcoin has been true to those who believed in it and bought and held bitcoin.

also it was very interesting to me when I was reading the first couple of pages just now that people seemed to be more positive back then, or it think it is better that I say there were less idiots with agendas against bitcoin to spread FUD back then.

Well, experts say that the bubbles happens only once. Remember the dot com boom of the late 90s? Those who invested in stocks such as Dell, Microsoft and Cisco got as much as 200X and 300X profits. That was almost two decades back. The stocks are still there, but they are no longer giving those sort of returns.

1. Considering current BTC adoption worldwide, which is around 0.001% of all population. All people dealing with BTC nowadays are early adopters. Even with the "price" of $1000 per 1BTC.
2. If BTC is going to be global currency, some simple math:

- approx. amount of all FIAT money in the world = $75 000 000 000 000
- max available amount of all BTC = 21 000 000
- potential highest value of BTC, if it replaces FIAT (never to happen) = $75 000 000 000 000 / 21 000 000 = $3 571 428 per 1BTC

Actually that number is irrelevant. With wider adoption BTC won't be usable unit for regular people, it will be mBTC, later on μBTC, later on nBTC, later on pBTC.

So yes, if Bitcoin is here to stay, all early adopters (including those buying today) are the new wealthy elite.

Good time to dig this old beauty out. Stay calm though gentlemen, we've all made significant money HODLING over the past few years but let's wait until we obliterate the ATH. I'm talking multiple thousands of dollars per bitcoin before we get too excited.

We need strong hands, do not sell everything yet.
We can never know if that will be the case a few years later, we cannot hold the bitcoin that much, the price of the bitcoin now the best opportunity that we have , if we hold any longer the price might go down and it will take another 10 years for it to get back the way it is now, but this is from my own personal vision.

Well, experts say that the bubbles happens only once.

You are obviously putting excessive trust in the wrong 'experts'. Bitcoin has _already_ experienced several bubbles. You can't meaningfully apply lessons learned from the stock market to Bitcoin - cryptocurrencies are an entirely new asset class. Their existence -- and consequently their behaviors -- are entirely without precedent.

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.

If you refer to single stocks then you or these experts might be right.  But overall they are provably wrong.  It might be that there is no second .com bubble coming -- maybe, future will tell.  But this was not the first new economy bubble.  With every new revolutionary technology, there was a bubble, e. g. the railway bubble 1873.  Or how about the mortgage and real estate bubble in Japan end 80s?  Almost the same happened again 2008 in US and later in Spain.  Probably again in other countries due to extremely low interest rates since years.

And Bitcoin is completely different than the old fashined stock markets.  We've already had several bubbles in Bitcoin.

You should already realize by now that bitcoin is a bit of a different animal.  Of course there are some comparison points, but your analogy to tech bubbles (and supposed experts) seems a bit self-serving and skewed in some kind of misplaced analogy sense to suggest that there is not going to be another bitcoin bubble (preposterous)

OP's prediction is right, but it still does not hit $10,000. probably it can be true in the next years, just keep watching.

those who keep holding their bitcoin from 5 years ago, even 3 or 2 years ago can be rich know because the price is high enough now.

http://astrohacker.com/ahc/bitcoin-is-the-economic-singularity/

After reading this, the scale of black market and digital economies and the effect Bitcoin will have on them I am pretty certain we are going to be very wealthy men -- even with a sum as small as 10 Bitcoins. It's just so hard to believe. We are only in the beginning storms with these significant rallies from 10 to 20 dollars. I will not be surprised to see prices from hundreds to thousands in the coming months.

The world just isn't going to be the same and we have been blessed as the pioneers.

What are you going to do with your Bitcoin wealth once your coins hit upwards of $10,000 a pop?

always great to dig this thread up.

While it still "is just so hard to believe", the sentiment remains and we are now much further down the track with a lot of history behind us.

OP is long gone now... I wonder what was his actual nickname. For some reason his account was deleted. I remember hearing the story about it a long time ago and it was interesting... pretty much an story of going from rach to riches then disappearing.  I think he did the right thing, considering that back in the day the community was very small and it would have been easier to track his money. If he was a very early adoptor he must have tons of money by now, a millionaire for sure. I dont have that problem since im poor, but if I was rich I would have done the same.

i dont know about the elite but yes we are the fastest learner from the knowledge side. It was a huge concept when bitcoin camein front of people's eyes and lot of i must say like 60-65 percent users didnt cared about it but only we are the one who understanded its true potentiality.

OP is long gone now... I wonder what was his actual nickname. For some reason his account was deleted. I remember hearing the story about it a long time ago and it was interesting... pretty much an story of going from rach to riches then disappearing.  I think he did the right thing, considering that back in the day the community was very small and it would have been easier to track his money. If he was a very early adoptor he must have tons of money by now, a millionaire for sure. I dont have that problem since im poor, but if I was rich I would have done the same.

You can still see his real name in the quotes on the first page:

It was Atlas, he was quite a character... those were the days ;-)

Yup. I miss 2011/12, despite all the scams and crazy looks I'd get from respectable people when I mentioned bitcoin to them. Smiley

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
But Bitcointalk & /r/bitcoin are heavily censored. bitco.in/forum, forum.bitcoin.com, and /r/btc are open.
