I will sell 1 bitcoin.

I will buy dollars with a single bitcoin when I am able to pay off my $160,000 mortgage with the proceeds from that sale.

That will be the last time I buy dollars with my Bitcoin currency.

All of the rest will be spent or held.

Okay. So you are betting on a $160,000 bitcoin price? Or do you already have $179,800 of that, and only need a $200 bitcoin?

if bitcoin ever went that high transaction fees would be like 100 dollars a piece. If transaction fees ever went that high no one would want to use bitcoin. Ergo bitcoin will probably never go that high.

You underwent an amazing transformation Elwar, but not in positive way... I guess you gonna get played a second time.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

what's about lowering the tx-fees? at some time this step has to be taken.

Aren't transaction fee's built into the client software - and not the bitcoin network.
For example:
The original client (Qt) charges BTC.0005
Multibit client charges twice at BTC.0010

If fee's depend on the client, it can change.

Bitcoin-Qt currently imposes a minimum BTC0,0005 fee on "low-priority" transactions. There is no minimum fee imposed for "high-priority" transactions.

I am thinking that the day that Bitcoins are worth $160,000/BTC the price of bread will likely be over $100/loaf.

I do not see that scenario as being too far into the future.

I am glad my home loan is in dollars.

Well, he would already be $19,800 clear of his mortgage, so thats probably not the case.

it wouldnt help. There is a limited amount of space in each block, even if you increased the block size to infinity miners would still only be able to receive a limited number transactions before the total volume of incoming transactions outpaced their bandwidth.

its not really an issue of fees. fees are just a product of the real issue that is limited space in blocks.

that's weird using commas for decimal point, how do you write something like: 1000,000,000.0005  ?

One billion and five ten-thousandths? 1.000.000.000,0005 or 1 000 000 000,0005 or 1 000 000 000.0005 (etc.)

So you're going to sell a currency that went up 2000% in 8 months, to pay a mortgage that charges you 5-6% at the most???
I don't see it, sorry...
maybe you might want to reduce your bitcoin investment and sell half... but I wouldn't sell all!

There's no guarantee that the BTC price won't plummet to the basement, and he would lose his opportunity to be debt-free.

Well, while I agree on that. I'm sure he's already up enough with bitcoin, and his position can potentially continue to grow. both sides are risky. What if he sells them all and then BTC skyrockets to twice the value?
He'll be kicking himself but debt free...
I guess it's a matter of personal preference.
