ETH could have made me a millionaire. If it goes 5X from here I will eat a shoe.

You've said that kind of thing before, so I don't believe you are sincere anymore :p

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg13829530#msg13829530

5 million in asks on buttstamp to 450

 Shocked

If this thing doesn’t crash down under 300 in the next 28 days I’ll eat a shoe.

Haha. Such times we've had. Cheesy

I'm so torn. Undecided


i don't get why people are emotionally attached to bitcoin only. it ain't emotionally attached to you.

it's maybe a terrible time to do some alt betting but there's nothing wrong with shameless profiteering when the opportunity was there. of course almost all of them are worthless. others may not know that so there's money to be made.

Yep, playing with a little money with some altcoins have made me have a little bit more BTC than I had before.

Using an extreme example: I think Ripple is the biggest shit and not even a proper cryptocurrency... but I wish/envy I would had experienced that 75x rise... I would now have enough BTC to be a happy hodler forever and strop trading.

and 99% of the people who put money in can't either. they like the rising price, the fancy words, the leader who would have to be invented if he didn't already exist he's that perfect and the marketing pushes.

No it wouldn't have. You know why? You're completely discounting the fact that you would have completely sold out at various points of it's stupid rise.

$20? I'm selling at least half. No way it goes up more from here.

$50? I'm completely out. I bet it crashes from here.

$100? That's insane. Not getting back in now.

$200? Ridiculous.

You get the point? You would have been completely out of it long ago. Regardless of the fact that you didn't believe in it in the beginning when it was crowd-selling for $0.50.

I remember when Adam was trying to give his ETC away. That's how much they were being laughed at.

Not if I was a delusional mETHhead. But I see what you mean.

Just remember: the slow turtle wins the race.

Work hard in life, remove or at least reduce all your debts, don't use credit for anything unless you absolutely have to, live simply. And sock everything else you make into Bitcoin and maybe some PMs (only like 5-10% max). But mostly Bitcoin. I guarantee that you'll retire wealthy.

your perfectly justifiable dislike of alts is also clouding the chance to make more money. sure they're almost all junk, and it may be too late for now, but they're here to stay.

and bitcoin is in no way safe as houses compared to most other things. it's better to risk throwing away some money in search of higher returns to diversify much earlier with much more just in case.

I'm a cynical old coot, but I tried. I cornered him once over a pint, I just couldn't get my head around it. I still don't see a single reasonable use-case.

Because there aren't any. Also young people are completely delusional if they think that smart contracts will be able to cut out the involvement of lawyers, and that there are no need for legal protections when it comes to contractual obligations of what is recognized and enforceable by law.

Unbelievable, laughable delusion. Something a 10 year old child would naively think is possible.

here's what's best to keep in mind - there are no fundamentals, there probably won't be any use cases, there is a lot of greed and stupidity. the latter two are the golden ticket on a ride upwards as they're almost infinite resources. make sure you get off at the right time as they eventually turn into an express elevator to hell.

Sooooo tempted to short the weekend. But I've been burned too often, trading using leverage. I'll just set a low buy order instead I guess.

CNBC is telling the world we're going to hit $4000. Bloomberg has taken over shilling for us. I wouldn't short now if you paid me.

Good morning Bitcoinland.

Seems we're back to going basically sideways after yesterday's decent rise, $130 correction and bounce back up... currently $2420USD (Bitcoinaverage).

Steady as she goes. Let's keep creeping up slowly.

Don't ever short Bitcoin, even at the top of a bubble. Inexplicably it will go higher. Just look at ETH for proof.

Disclaimer: I don't think that bitcoin is in a severe bubble right now. Maybe a little higher than average, but not extremely overbought as previous times. And hashrate is still climbing which is a good healthy sign.

I also feel like we have some stronger hands this time around. Newcomers are more educated now. More people are buying for long term hodling, and playing the altcoin market to make more btc.

the first to do it is always the one who gets destroyed as a warning to everyone else. he pioneered the idea and planted the seed. everyone else from now on will get normal sentences.

and probably 90% of dark markets are operated out of the fbi office anyway.

The opportunity is still there. Most users ever on Polo... play the pumps, dump on the chumps.
