Always loved this book.



Because a sum of money is a leading character in this tale about people, just as a sum of honey might properly be a leading character in a tale about bees.

I bought some EOS (only a few hundreds) when they were around $1... probably on a drunken trading night. Anyone else here hold that shit? Why is it pumping so much lately? And how do airdrops work on it? I have them on exchange, maybe I should move it to wallet and do something to receive those airdrops?

Maybe "a bit" OT but... what the hell, ultimately I will convert them all to BTC so....

Maybe I should do it right now as it looks a lot overpriced to me but.... I don't know if I am missing something here.

Also if anyone can recommend me a good thread where I can learn some more about it would be great. I have only found shitty threads that are completely useless.


You sound like an irrational gambler, rather than being committed to some kind of reasonable cause.

j/k

No but srsly. Dump that shit and let us never speak of it again.

I don't know why but I just hate to see EOS in top 5 coins (by market-cap), after Bitcoin Cash and Ripple of course. Grin

I just hope that Litecoin, Cardano and Monero replace all three of these.

By the way:




Found it...

Anyone, and I repeat, anyone can get rich from bitcoin as long as they buy and hold...

That's the theory.

The practice is that most people don't want to buy assets when they are cheap. They want to buy when they are expensive.


Most people just don't have the patience to hold any asset for a long period of time before selling. They feel that 1-3 years is about all they can do before they get the itch to liquidate. Or they've invested more than they can truly go without for very long. Either way, they end up liquidating WAY before they should, and usually at the exact wrong time.

The other reason that most people don't 'get rich' is they simply never invest *enough* in the first place. These are the investors that put $100 in, then whine that they aren't 'rich' just a few years later. Or even a decade later. Then they liquidate and buy something frivolous that depreciates.

Lastly, people that 'diversify' like crazy will never, I repeat will NEVER get rich. Period. There I said it.

This is the trick, isn’t it?   Is what you are prepared to lose enough?

It depends. I kinda don't like that phrase. Because you are never going to lose everything, and most likely worse case scenario you only about break even after a few years.

To have a shot at becoming "rich", I would invest enough in Bitcoin that if you metaphorically lost it all (so to speak) you could confidently save it all back up in 4-5 years through working. Whatever that amount is. The amount is going to be different for different people. Also you need to plan to hold it for at least 6-7 years, with 10 being more optimal.

Investors just throwing in $100, $500, or $1000 because that's "all they can afford to lose" should resign themselves to never getting "Bitcoin rich". Sorry but it just ain't going to happen. It takes money to make money, as they say.

Money or time.

Hold $250 through 4 halvenings and see how you go with that.  

Assuming a 10x per halvening, that’s $2.5 million

Bitcoin at $95M/btc in 16 years? HIGHLY doubtful. Can I smoke what your smoking?  Cheesy

I was buying at $750 in January 2014 and here we are in 2018.  

Did I think we would reach $7,500 by now?  Not really.  Does anyone really understand the consequences of a deflationary monetary supply?  I think Paul Krugman does, and it gives him the cold sweats at 3am.

Not really. It's kind of new it seems.

Why not? Bitcoin can only be stopped  when it absorbs every paper money out there and the amount of papers out there is infinite as long as they keep printing.

They can stop bitcoin's growth only when they stop printing money. As long as they keep printing, some of it will always flow into btc no matter what.

I have a few points on this...

1. When you are young, 3 years is almost an eternity.
2. When you were even younger, you did not have the luxury of watching what happened to a stock a decade after you held it for a few years, then sold. Grant you, in most cases it would be NOTHING, but cases like AAPL or AMZN make you learn something and, hopefully, use later.
3. When you are younger, you usually don't have enough capital to invest meaningful sums, hence #1-2.
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? Give it to the second and third generation so they can do something stupid with it?
5. Overall, people tend to sell winning investments too soon and hold losers for too long. It's basic psychology. Avoiding taking/booking a loss.
People investing in stocks either lose everything or at best brake even. I zeroed one brokerage account myself some years ago.
