i started when it was $6, sold it at $20 and made $45K.

so i leveraged 60 to 1 and piled in when it hit $30.1, but today when it dropped over 20% i was forced to cut all my positions, and lost 110K in the process!

how could this happen? there should be a central authority to bitcoins regulating daily loss of maximum 5% per day!

te he! see my pics at www.f2bbs.com

Welcome to volatile markets.  That means they go up AND down, sharply.

If you can't handle the losses, don't play.

So you got super greedy and are wondering why you now have nothing?

Sounds legit.

Is the OP a spam bot? check: nickname, signature, weird posts (automatically stolen from somewhere else?).

I wonder who he would want to be this central authority? Assuming that he isn't making a joke.

I'll do it.  Send me 5% of your bitcoins every day, and don't spend anywhere else.  As long as you follow my instructions, I promise you won't lose more than 5% of your bitcoins per day.

You know, it's a damn shame we can't put guns to you people online and force you all to give restitution to this poor victim. What a terrible state of affairs.

It could be like the Soviet Union! We need the government to regulate us because we are too stupid to do anything [/sarcasm]

Guys, why are you taking him seriously? Who lets you leverage bitcoins 60 to 1? No one, it's a joke. Chill.

Wait, there was an ounce of seriousness anywhere in this thread?  How'd I miss that one? o.O

you're a troll.  first of all a 15 yo can't get a hold of leverage, let alone 60-1.  this kinda sophisticated talk makes me think you're a f*cking Wall Street punk who wants to scare everyone here into to selling to you.  don't sell to this weenie.
