4. Sometimes I wonder if enjoying life more at the moment beats having more money later. For once, if you eventually get to a decrepitude stage with $100 mil worth of btc (say, in a few decades), then I have to ask: The f-k you are going to do with it?

I have been thinking a lot about this.

Do I want to be a filthy rich octogenarian with failing health, or a reasonably well off middle aged guy with energy for projects?

In terms of price growth, I'm more apt to believe a trajectory based on logarithmic regression and Metcalfes' Law where the price growth slows down over time:



So in 16 years, we'd be lucky to be at a few mil. Maybe ~$10M if we're really lucky.

That's actually not Metcalfe's law, but a modification that he does not agree with (nlogn instead of n^2)
It was made by Odlyzko and Briscoe under the title "Metcalfe's law is wrong" (sic!)
See here:

That said, who knows what the graph would show in 10 years.

Warren Buffett is worth $87B. But he's also an 87 year old man that lives in the same house he bought for $32K and eats McDonald's every morning for breakfast and drinks Coca Cola all day.

So there's that.

These are the burning questions for sure. I'm trying to strike a balance. No doom intended, but if I live to see 80 I will piss myself laughing.

Sounds like a failed life to me, if that's all you end up with. Money is a means to an end, not an end in itself. What does he do with his life?

We know Loaded had 40k BTC in early 2017.  Let’s assume he still has them.

For Loaded to have the same wealth as Warren Buffet, puts Bitcoin at $2 million each.  

Are there bigger whales than Loaded?  I dunno.  You guys probably know.

That is assuming Warren Buffet does not increase his wealth in the meantime and Loaded doesn't sell some on the way up. Oh, and also assuming Berkshire Hataway doesn't invest in crypto.

Most of Warren Buffet wealth is absolutely not FIAT so inflation benefits both.

Anyway.... How many people here do REALLY believe BTC will reach $1Mill in less than 10 years from now? That's a poll I would like to see.

Yes... Suspected ones are the Winklevi, Barry Silbert, maybe even Ver (although I don't think so), maybe Josh Jones of Bitcoinbuilder, whomever is really behind Bitmain (probably not WU himself), etc....

Loaded could in fact be one of the above guys... who knows.

And if we look only at marketcap and also other coins, there's people like the Ripple guy, the other ripple+stellar guy (Jed McCaleb), etc...

Not that I know of. We don't even know who is REALLY behind it. We will probably never know.

Some rich Chinese guy who is high up in the Communist Party like all senior businessmen. The name probably isn’t important.

When bitcoin breaks 10k again I'm moving to Thailand to become a full-time monger.

Didn't Loaded get a lambo for BTC? And had his wedding on BTC? (not 100% on that) Ver dumped a bunch of his stash to prop up his bcash pet project that's constantly needs to bed fed

I think you are referring to Charlie Schrem. I don't think he does have nowhere near that much currently. Or maybe he does and may in fact be Loaded... who knows. Or maybe you are referring to GOAT?
