Just did a quick calculation today.

I calculate that I'd have to work full time for 14.5 years to earn, after taxes, what I've gained with bitcoin in just 4 years.

And this shit is just getting started IMO.


my CPA on Friday (besides the wtf are you doing are you a drug dealer look) said

1) quit my job ..being taxed at 47%

or

2) do a solo 401k and dump up to 34k in that for the rest of the year



She also said

3) no way sell coin this year..capital gains on income ..she says wait till first of the year


so myself

4) wtf ...maybe I should cash out some after Jan 1st and just mine thru 2018 and slide on my investments and some BTC cashed out...I'm 2 years
from medicare (65) and the year after that I could glide and still take full soc sec at 66

decisions..

ack!


If it hits 5k I'm gonna crack like a walnut.....before Jan 1st I'd be gone...(and I could justify selling some of my 'crypto babies" as a hedge against dreaded tulips (unlikely
but I've used dumber justifications to blow $$$ on dubious projects...like in 2013 when I got the KNC 550gh Jupiter BTC ASIC Miner Smiley

ack! I hate making 'adult' and 'prudent' decisions....




Take out only what you need to spend. Use bitcoins for any spending that you can.

If you need a safety net for some of your wealth, short bitcoin for as much as you might need over the next year or so (as much as you want to be secure). By shorting (without margin) you are effectively freezing your bitcoin wealth at the current price. The downside is you have to pay a few percent per year to do that and you risk having your coins on an exchange (perhaps spread between several exchanges). This avoids capital gains and allows you to pull it out at a later date as needed.

At $38k total income you pay zero capital gains tax (this year). Might be best to do until you find a better way down the road (with a better CPA).


I recall in 2011 asking my CPA what he thought about bitcoins. He just laughed.

This is a call out to any Bitcoin speculators out there, wtf is going on with the upward price movement right now???

I sold at ~$2750 and watched all the way down to $1800 convinced the major correction was underway. I slinked back in after the bounce back up from ~$3000 and expected this rally to be over well before $4000. So now I'm hodling for dear life and awaiting the big red dip down to ~$3500 or lower.

Any thoughts on future short to medium term price action?

Bear in mind your CPA probably knows 0.00001% what you know about crypto.

Gone as in sell all your crypto? I'd recommend the JJG method of selling in very small increments at a progression of price points. Don't do anything rash you will later regret ...

Follow a weekly chart of BTC/USD and buy when price gets to the 20 MA. That would have gotten you in at under $1900. Right now 20 MA is $2360. Sooner or later the 20 MA weekly will be broken so don't expect this to work forever.

Not many traders here. Most have learned our lesson and just buy and hodl.

The reason for the upward movement? Many people are trying to figure out where to put their wealth for safe keeping. With a madman running the US economy and military, incompetent idiots running the other countries economies off a cliff and uncertainty everywhere, bitcoin has proven itself to be a store of value that will not be stopped. Everyone was just waiting to see if the hard fork and SegWit activation would cause any turmoil. Bitcoin survived both with no problems, demonstrating that it can grow and adapt over time as necessary.

Investors have had 4 years to think about how they missed out on the big rise in 2013. They have been on the sidelines waiting. This time they will participate. And it will be glorious.

It's glorious already, my bitcoin's are worth over 10 x what I bought in for. It's an incredible amount of money (for me) but I am not ready to sell yet.

I feel like selling when everybody is ultra-bullish after an huge pump, and yet there is still a lot of way to go:

Wow, wow, wow... nothing like waking up all groggy on a Monday morning, turning on the computer and seeing that bitcoin has gone up in price ~$300 from what is was when you went to bed. @.@ Surely, I must still be asleep and dreaming. If not, I am sooo wide awake now.

$5k by the end of the week?

If it only gained like a 2% daily until the end of the week, yes. But... will it?

It is very difficult to buy even a single bitcoin these days. Trading must be stopped on all bitcoin exchanges. MSM should help and start explaining nonstop that bitcoin is a ponzi scheme.

I didn't think I would ever put more fiat into BTC, but that's what's happening. Probably gonna end up with 95% in BTC.

If they are going to do  what they say/hint they are going to do....... then the implications are enormous, even more so  if they have cleverly worked out a way to use BTC in the mechanism of this "global internet connectivity" they talk of, beyond "simply" increasing the potential for market reach of BTC (which would be impressive enough)

Blockstream.... You dark horse you Shocked

Bastards got me with their advert... and that never happens.


(not to mention the implications for the global economy and the direct implications for the  4.2 billion unconnected people- I really hope this delivers)

The sell wall on Gemini at $4125 started at about 1k btc about 20 minutes ago, and it looks like it is getting eaten away slowly.  I feel like making a buy, just to contribute to the cause.  It is down to 448 BTC as I type, but even if I made a BIG purchase (for me), it would not make a big dent in the wall.


Edit:  Hahahahaha.. Finally I may have done a good thing for everyone, including myself.  I watched the wall, and it suddenly went down from 433BTC and down to 18BTC, and I made my pounce, especially since on my other screen, I could see that Stamp had about $100 premium with new ATH movement. My small contribution at the bargain price of $4125.  Now, I gotta figure out when to sell because that was outside of my regular practices?  Maybe sell little by little starting around $4250?  or is that too conservative?

Just curious, its real trade or just some "magic trick" like some news that i read before
