I'm retiring from speculation. It was fun, but in the end you always lose on the short-game.

That said I am officially joining the "long-haul club". I decided I would turn 99% of my coins to cash now and enjoy the profits.

The remaining 1% have been ordered as physical coins which I will store until I can either buy a house with them or they become worthless.

I love Bitcoin, but at the end of the day speculation is too close to gambling for comfort.

Good for you.

I think there are other candidates for 'most honest post' though:

That's not the long-haul club, that's cashing out and leaving a nominal amount to bitcoin just so you can say you're still invested.

It seems early to pull 99%, but I guess if you are leveraged or have a lot of debt it might make sense.

Indeed.

No guts, no glory.
