I wonder if it's good to cash out of BTC now and buy silver, which seems to be in a nice dip.

Thoughts?

Don't cash out, but if you have a significant amount of bitcoins you might want to diversify your portfolio.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

Go for it, but I wouldn't cash out all of your BTC though.

I've been holding gold and silver for years now. In my ongoing process to separate myself from an economy that seems headed for the big wall, I sold SLV shares and am now navigating the "buy bitcoins!" gauntlet. Nothing I have ever done in the world of investing has ever been this arcane and difficult. IMHO, this is *the* main reason btc will have a challenge going Main Street to become a viable alternative to the dying dollar.

I would diversify and be ready for anything! Including a trip back to the 19th century, in which case btc will be nowhere to be found and that farmer will only accept silver coins for his chickens.

How are BTC immune to the same type of manipulation? How do we know that this drastic price inflation isn't a result of government manipulation?

It's hard to take your comment seriously when you claim government control without explaining why or even how they control it.

It's always a good idea not to have all your eggs in one basket.

Having said that, the upside potential of Bitcoins is far greater then that of silver... so is the risk.

great question! the reason is because there is incentive for people to allow their silver to be helled by a third party since it is very difficult to change ownership of physical silver in a global market. With btc on the other hand there is no incentive for individuals to allow a third party to hold their bitcoins for them, since we can exchange them with anyone we like without relying on an intermediary.

what this means is that since all the silver is held in a central repository it is easy for that repository to lie about how much silver they have.

Double returns are only returns if you cash out at the right time.  How many have that kind of trading acumen to know when that time is?

Diversifying would be a smart move for a layman who wants to spread their risk.

my strategy is to ignore the price and keep my ear to the ground. When average joe and betty on the street are talking about how they just bought some bitcoin, ill know its time.

AMEN!  Far from that now though.  I suspect a few bubble cycles will happen before we are at that stage.

almost certainly this is true. But if this is true and you hold for the long haul than you will come out ontop.

Just starting to get on the BTC train.

I have been stacking silver and gold for a year or so now.

My Au & Ag stack is not for investments purposes. It's more a store of wealth for me.

The man can tax my fiat, but can't touch my PM's!

Only thing I worry about BTC is the man outlawing it.

Be sure to get PHYSICAL silver in your own possession. SLV is for day traders and of course the price is manipulated.
