All of today I have been very sad because just last week I sold my 38 Bitcoins for $7.8 each and now it's $18 each. I am now wondering if I should buy coins now with the $330 I have in my Mt. Gox account or should I wait for the bubble to pop?

My advice is to buy low and sell high. Tongue

Tips are appreciated (very tiny tips are perfectly okay!) 13gDRynPfLH3NNAz3nVyU3k3mYVcfeiQuF

I believe this may be the correct answer.  Bitcoin either succeeds or fails.  Too soon to tell.  Spin the wheel or don't.

There is one way it will surely succeed. When people spend their bitcoins and don't sell them.

Hoarding is a different matter. Possibly better to hoard just as you would save (if the price is going up, then hoarding is like saving/investing anyhow, so hoarding is the wrong term.)

When the price stabilizes or falls, the question will be where can stagnant bitcoins be placed so they will produce a return.

I agree. The price of bitcoin will suffer a drop at some point and Im curious to see the reaction fo the community.

My hope is that there is a general consensus amongst the community to say "okay, this is thing is starting to level out, time to spend, even if just a little bit."

There are an increasing number of places to spend and in that sense time is on our side.

For example: http://bitgigs.com/

Investing in bitcoin startups would be best.

Your sadness made someone else very happy. This speculation game is a zero-sum.

Assuming we know the right answer: If we give you a good advice we benefit you, but we hurt the person who would've acquired your profits. If we give you a bad advice we benefit that person, but hurt you. Again, it doesn't really matter Smiley

Correct. I couldn't have gotten into Bitcoins, where it not for somebody who got out at $10. But then maybe he started mining when it was easy or got in when they were selling kBTC at $2.50

Advice? Depends on your risk profile and your understanding that Bitcoin is totally unlike any stock or option! The price will eventually level out. Could be at $1/BTC or at $100/BTC. Hell, if enoug people join the craze we could soon be trading in mBTC!

Since Bitcoin Randomizer is dead, join the Bitcoin Pyramid (referrer id #203)! Be quick, be on top! Instant payout as soon as one of your referrals deposits!

All the same. I'm kicking myself in the butt now for stopping mining too early last year when I was getting 200 coins/day. I thought back then (and still do) that Bitcoin has no future and that the bubble will pop sooner or later because the system has a built-in perpetual deflation. That doesn't mean pyramid schemes can't be useful if you jump out before they burst Smiley. My wrong decision made somebody else rich now. It's all the same.
