I am happy with a few orders filling in a day, and I am thinking that in the future, I would likely be happy with a few orders filling per week.

I also don't play around with margin trading because it seems too risky, just on the face of it seems like a kind of gambling to me, unless there are ways to just employ it as a hedge... but seems too complicated for the most part.  

Largely, I am happy with just preserving the status quo of my BTC holdings (which I guess is mostly just an attempt at preservation of principle) and counting on long term BTC price appreciation for accumulation of wealth, rather than practices that feel like gambling (and certainly any kind of margin trading would feel like gambling to me).  
I'm employing a market making strategy to earn BTC from fluctuations in altcoins - which works well when markets are volatile - for it to work well you need to have pretty deep reserves in order to ride the deep fluctuations and keep in the market. My order sizes are not so high to reduce the risk - so I need a lot of orders to be filled to make a good profit

EDIT: I always seem to lose when I try this strategy in USD/BTC, so keep to altcoins

Isn't that just evil of you Tera, dee bera?

you have no nurturing bone in your whole bear imitating a bull body, maybe too many of your cubs got eaten in your bear youth, causing you to be so jaded, and you just feel vengeful in your desires to witness the suffering of others.

It seems that the odds of plunging below $6k are pretty low, absent some pretty decently sized FUD.. and we do recognize that it is quite likely that the Bcash dickheads have not given up on their various cards that they plan to play in prep for anarcapulco that is coming at the end of this week.. so perhaps there will be some strategically planned FUD, Bcash pumpening and bcash spammening that can combine to provide a 1-2-3 attack.. that could cause some BTC selling at within this price range (even though a lot of folks had been thinking that the BTC price bottom had already been in)..

Further, there surely is a motive to attempt to force close a lot of margin longs off of Bitfinex, as was mentioned by HairyMac and the Bitfinex long to short ratio, which may exist on other margin exchanges too?

It seems the "old ones" doesn't understand what bitcoin is or the whole cryptocurrency. The so called experts are also old and calling all fud against bitcoin. Yet almost all crypto enthusiasts are the younger generation, mid 30's and below. There is the barrier. The technological gap between old and young. Give it a few years when we "young" are the old, then we'll see it flourish.

Early 30's here.  Wink
Steady. You will find in this august thread many fine gentlemen of the older persuasion. That said, you're right, it is hard for someone in their fifties or more to change their mental and personal financial model utterly to suit the demands of bitcoin.

You pesky kids though. It is all very well being 'enthusiastic' and talking of 'whole cryptocurrency' as if that were a thing. If you could just stop all your meddling and blathering on until you are actually 50, you would be doing bitcoin a great service. There are many more pressing concerns than you seem to be aware of.

I'm young and I have some FUD for you. Just when the older generation finally starts accepting it, the underlying encryption will be broken and they wont have any idea what that means. They'll be like 'what are these youngsters jabbering about? bitcoin just got licensed in new york! so what is the ceo and the board of directors doing about this bizzare issue? Did they halt bitcoin yet? These low prices are a steal and you better get in before Goldman Sachs.'

There is no need to break any encryption when you have several centralized scamcoins in the top 10. Those into scamcoins are the first in line to get burned, which by the way are both grandpas and kids who are just after the price action.

Looks like the lightning network applied to any blockchain. Figured it would be coming. Does this undermine Bitcoin’s competitive edge with lightning network innovation? Will ethereum and other altcoins be using teechain or lightning network equivalents?

late 50's here. and when i heard of btc in 2011 i took to the concept like a dog to a bone.

dont forget us old farts have seen how the government and banks play with money "for our own good" for a long time and many of us trust the government/banks even less than the younger generation.

but maybe im an exception. lot of my friends around my age just dont get btc and wont get into it. but that may be because they generally arent a technology freak like i am.

With Ethereum being politicized I don't see Bitcoin losing its edge.
