50 years old without any savings, god daym, this story is sad as fuck.

You should have invested in the stock markets at least dude. I missed the crypto train mostly too, since it was a whole new concept and was a risky investment but people who took that risk made the millions not those who didn't.

No matter what your monthly salary is, you should keep some of it and invest in different assets. (used to be stocks, cash, gold... now it is crypto, cash(should be your smallest investment), gold and stocks-this one is in a bubble right now probably, wait for the crash) Saving $100 or $200 per month might not look like a lot at the first glance but after 20 years, it may grow into a lambo or a house at least.

I did all of that but in the end, didn't stick with it and cashed out. I even cashed out an IRA long ago, and paid the stiff penalty. But I thought that I had life to live and habits to feed. Then with my current employer, who I have been with for 15 years, has offered a 401K that I never opted in because they did not guarantee a match, only would match if they made a profit. I figured, "why just lock up my money and end up just cashing out again and paying Uncle Sam that damn penalty?" Turns out my employer ended up matching every single year, so in retrospect; it was a bad decision drawn out over many years. A couple of years ago, my employer started to guarantee the match and made the plan opt out rather than opt in. So, I've been contributing since then. So far, when I check my balance, the amount accumulated looks rather paltry. It's only about 2 1/2 months of my current gross income. However, it has only been two years, so maybe time will be my friend if I just stick with it and keep my foolish and greedy little paws off of it.

MSM FUD on Price Manipulation Scams = Mega Dip.

https://www.techdr.com.np/2018/05/feds-open-probe-into-bitcoin-price.html

Buy the DIP & #HODL

A year or 2 from now this will all seem funny.

I've already set a bot to BTFD and scalp when it rises a bit and I'm running out of fiat. REKT.  Cry


I am not sure if a BOT will solve issues of preparing for longer periods of dip beyond expectations, so your strategy is not correct, if you have not projected down, way past your expectations, probably into the $3k territory, at least, even if price only goes down to $7k.  In other words, you should not even be close to running out of fiat in these price territories, which really means that your buy orders are set up too wrong, and you are buying too much and not preserving enough..

You've got an interesting community going here, and there is some great info in some of the posts.

I looked in because I have to make a decision about Bitcoin again. Any Bitcoin i get stays in one of my wallets, and I won't consider 'spending' it for at least 3 years, so that isn't a problem. My problem is in deciding on the best time to withdraw some dollars as bitcoin. I have an account that picks up a few dollars from my Internet activities, and I can ask for this to be paid in Bitcoin. There is no charge for this, and there doesn't seem to be a spread involved in the price calculation, so it seems to be a pretty good way to collect coins. I have to decide when to withdraw though, and it can take up to 5 days to receive the payment in my wallet. I suspect this is because the payments are batched to reduce transaction fees, and they may wait for received payments to avoid having to purchase coins to make payments.

I want to withdraw at some time within the next month or two, so I have to try to predict the price movements during that period to optimise the acquisition price. The other difficulty is in trying to get a feel for short term volatility, as I have no control over the time that the coins are 'purchased' or valued. I like the system as it is, but I have a severe lack of knowledge to allow me to optimise my returns. It's particulrly difficult at the moment, because the arrest and imprisonment of Tommy Robinson in the UK is going to have some wide reaching political implications. My inclination is to watch events for a week, and claim my coins early next week. I base this on my uninformed opinion that Bitcoin has a little bit of a short term price drop arriving in the coming week.

Am I taking a sensible view of things?

[...] It's particulrly difficult at the moment, because the arrest and imprisonment of Tommy Robinson in the UK is going to have some wide reaching political implications.
If there is anything I have learned about bitcoin is that often the price doesn't move an inch when there is major global bitcoin news (not just UK) and that there can be very large price movements without even a trace of bitcoin news to be found anywhere.
My conclusion is that most bitcoin trading is done based on the bitcoin chart and nothing else.
Since bitcoin is spread over the globe pretty evenly, the bitcoin price seems to average out price movements of major fiat currencies, With maybe a bit more influence to the US dollar since Europe still trades a lot using the USD/BTC charts.
We dropped about 12% over the last 7 days, which I consider relatively stable. (more than 2% per day, averaged over several weeks is still quite normal for bitcoin).
To me, the next days and weeks are just a guess, but I'm all in and trust that bitcoin will be useful for many years to come.

99% of decentralized exchanges allow you to trade crypto to crypto.

There is one decentralized exchange that uses fiat but that is more like localbitcoins than a real exchange.

"Missing the crypto train" is mostly an overused term due to the bear market we are having but if this market started to shift upwards you can probably be able to ride with other traders as well. Also it is sad to imagine his current situation but he did not realized early on to investing other assets when he was just younger. And investing in crypto without knowledge of investing at the same time being in the market at the wrong time will really make you do bad decisions.

I agree that there are many people like Rojer Ver who delibarately sold tens and hundreds of thousands of Bitcoins to pump their beecash etc. shitcoins. But there are other whales as well - mining whales mostly with short fat fingers which love to hit sell button on bitfinex. Each day 1800 new bitcoins are mined. For a week they gather 12600, for 1 month 50400, etc. Not so long time ago (5-6 months) they had enough profit to do so - like 20$ per asic s9 per day. But now, thanks to the many new s9's (and equivalent) plugged in, their profit is only 2.8$ per day with 0.1$ elecricity price. In the last 3 months the mining difficulty rose by 43% (meaning 43% less profit with the same price of Bitcoin). In 3 months the expected difficulty is almost the same 35-40%, so their revenue will drop from 6 to 3-4$ meaning the profit will be around 0$. I am curious if they will be happy to hit the sell button then. I guess not.

That said, what can we expect to happen in the next 3 months? When 0.1$ el. price asics are turned off, this will buy some time (but not much) for the 0.04-0.06$ el. price asics to mine on profit. In another 3-6 months even with the lowest el. price asics will have to be turned off. This is very bad news for Bitmain and its competition, but not for the hodlers! Despite the hatred of Jihan Wu for Bitcoin team and supporters, he will be FORCED to pump the price at least 4x, if he wants to continue to manifacture asics and run his pool. The fact that the moderators in bitcoin mining forums ban me for posting these stats, proves how afraid are of the truth they. And those who buy new asics s9 are completely unaware of the mining difficulty charts:

Is Jihan still using his proprietary mining hack to get more coins on bcash than other miners? Or are the only people mining bcash using his algorithm?

Too bad for him the Segwith fork fixed that.

BTC price movement is making it's way down to the long-term trend support line that had like 6 touches since October, and it lines up at around 6900 right now.

I have my buy orders set just above 7k, hoping they'll hit soon and we can start our reversal.

If we break below that trend line we're probably looking at a prolonged bear-market, but I doubt that will happen. On the upside we will however need some more volume to get through that 200DMA

I'm glad I didn't come across as a jerk. What I would like is see you write a string of satisfied posts about how your trading gives you small but consistent fruits. You're a bitcoin veteran after all.

Do you really get rekt every time, bones, or is it just preventive whining?

(You're free not to answer this, of course. It's just a cocky opening.)

I'd try and make the bet smaller relative to my playroll, keeping leverage at maybe 3 tops, 1~1.5 even better. "Going long" can actually mean buying a few cents and stashing away. So can "taking profit." Increasing the amount in the freezer is probably the most hopeful subgoal to gambling with 100% house money.

I mean: you know a few things about retirement and taxes. I'm sure you made a few calculations. I know you understand this magical internet money fairly well, too. Come on.

To be blunt, my finances are a horror story. I truly am REKT. My cryptocurrency portfolio has never been large. We are talking less than 1 BTC worth ATM.
It's not a huge start, agreed, but by judicious use of a consistent strategy it could grow little by little. The 2J-ladder thingy, maybe. Or if you just held the hedging short since when you started it, now your play money could have doubled easily. That's what I mean by "consistent". And "judicious" means you would have managed to hold it without getting rekt soonish (with some sweat, granted) if it had been a small amount (like 10-20% of your play bankroll).

Quote
Also, everyone knows the saying that those who can't,  teach. Definitely applies to me when it comes to retirement. I have jack shit saved up for retirement and I am 50.
I feel you, man.

Quote
Sometimes I'm just tempted to liquidate all my meager cryptocurrency holdings right now. However, a part of me wants to hold on for as long as possible because quite frankly, it gives me a little ray of hope that maybe things will turn around, and I can delay the looming bankruptcy filing indefinitely.
Are we joking or what? Chin up and HODL!

Quote
I will probably regret this posting, since I have bared all to practical strangers. Oh well, at least it was a little therapeutic to have my own pity party.
No names, no pain. And you got yourself off the target list as well. It probably isn't all that bad.
