Is 40% to 70% allocation an Over-allocation into BTC?

I believe that my current allocation into BTC is about 75%

Yep basically thats how becoming over balanced would work out.    I generally say 1% in gold helps alot, its heavy it counter balances alot :p  but most people over estimate their free capital.  By free I mean you have it to save for like ten years as capital not money before a bill comes due.

Some dont subscribe to the idea of capital allocation and balancing so thats really upto the individual.  Taking more risky routes could pay off but the point is to avoid the risk, also thats losing some of the gains quite possibly.


If you go younger, in the 40-50 yr old range, you find a lot of guys that are just flat out hostile towards Bitcoin, like it threatens their very way of life or something. You should of heard the vitriol that my (former) Accountant was spewing about Bitcoin in 2013.

Why isnt that same person just as angry about bad accounting by central government.  The never ending monetary base expansion is self bias, since I dont operate in billions Im worse off from 'being outside'.    Do we all believe government can perfectly distribute this new money, of course it doesnt do so.

Heres a good link I saw that I think explains about how USD self funding works and inversely why Bitcoin is in demand as unbiased to a central point of failure (not that I think any system can be perfect not even gold Tongue )

Grandma and Grandpa can't even afford to buy Precious Metals anymore, much less Bitcoin.
Almost anyone can buy a gram gold.  In many places its tax free, compared to the lost freedoms after ww2 we do have that going for us now.   Most dont realise gold is not especially expensive  (unless you also believe oil will be going down by half long term )  missing the above effect which is increasing as QE unravels.



BTC is wavering on the first rung of the ladder above the previous low, in April.     Not sure what to take from that except its likely forming a longer term move

Bullshit. The fact is that you only try to strike up conversation here on this thread, simply to pick a fight with someone and try to condescend them in order to somehow pump up your own ego and make yourself feel smart or important.

You've done it countless times to many people here.

How sad.


That's like your opinion, man, which is over-reading my actions or my motivations.

O rly?

Here's a sample of how you talk to people. And this is just from the last 6 pages of your post history:

Is 40% to 70% allocation an Over-allocation into BTC?

I believe that my current allocation into BTC is about 75%

Yep basically thats how becoming over balanced would work out.  

When I invested 10% - 15% of my quasi-liquid assets into bitcoin, it took me a bit more than a year to reach the lower levels of that allocation, and I was NOT investing more than I felt comfortable in losing. In other words, I spread out my entry into bitcoin in order to feel comfortable with me reallocation. 

My other assets that were 85% - 90% of my total have not gone down in value, and they have gone up in value, too, but the bitcoin proportion has gone through the roof.

I don't even feel close to being over-allocated in bitcoin, even though currently, it does represent about 75% of the value of all of my total quasi-liquid investment capital.

Furthermore, I believe that my strategy to buy BTC as the price goes down and to sell BTC as the price goes up, causes me to feel additional comfort in my choice to keep my allocation without feeling stressed - and even the approximate 25% of my other investments seem to be enough for me to live decently comfortable on, if necessary... so my BTC (even though it seems to be a really large allocation) seems to be a kind of icing on the cake... surplus that is just subsiding there.


 I generally say 1% in gold helps alot, its heavy it counter balances alot :p  but most people over estimate their free capital.

I specifically chose not to invest in gold because I did not want to have its storage costs and its lack of mobility.  So, I don't see why investing 1% in gold is going to help me to feel any more secure when I don't feel insecure at the moment.


 By free I mean you have it to save for like ten years as capital not money before a bill comes due.

Some people who have already dealt with storing gold might feel comfortable with holding some gold.. sure.  Property ownership can hold some of that similar concrete value, too, if you feel comfortable having a certain level of being tied down or some of the possible maintenance costs associated with property.  I already have some property, too.. that surely is not very liquid, so it is partly already included in my 25% of non-bitcoin assets.


Some dont subscribe to the idea of capital allocation and balancing so thats really upto the individual.  

Of course, there is a lot of individual variation, also in terms of how mobile an individual might want to attempt to be.


Taking more risky routes could pay off but the point is to avoid the risk, also thats losing some of the gains quite possibly

Risk?  Like what?  Putting some value in alts?  Maybe some day, but likely not for me. 

I agree that any of us likely have to keep our minds open to some investment types that might cause us to feel more comfortable, and there is a lot going on in alts that could, someday, cause some motivation to put some value in the direction of various alts.

Each of us have our online personalities, and you don't like my online personality because you conclude that I am too mcuh meanie.., and apparently, I don't consider those "tone examples" of yours to be as problematic as you do.  

Let's get to the substance of what I am saying, rather than getting caught up on tone and concluding that I am on some kind of "ego driven" mission...

In other words, get real torquey porkey... And, get the fuck out of here with your assertion that those tone examples are some kind of meaningful evidence of a problematic pattern of my ego are something, except they may well demonstrate that you are "too sensitive"

Yesterday, I had a $100 private purchase with a relative.

I know that some ACH bank transfers are free; however, after I discovered that my bank was going to charge me $3 to ACH transfer our $100 amount, we agreed to follow through with your transaction with bitcoin.

Let me say that I had done bitcoin transactions with this particular relative in the past  (I had sent him $10 when BTC prices were $385, and about a year and a half later, I had sent him $30 when the price was $420), so I knew that the relative was somewhat familiar with bitcoin, but I also knew that the relative was very doubting about bitcoin.  Therefore, I was a bit surprised that he was willing to do our transaction in bitcoin.  Before he agreed to receive the $100 in bitcoin, I made a bit of a sniping comment about his seeming lack of bitcoin enthusiasm, and I said something about him not even being able to figure out what was a bitcoin address.... hahahahhahahaha..

Anyhow, he agreed, and I sent the transaction, and I even included a bit more (sent him $105 when BTC prices were about $8,372) in order to be assured that everything was covered and he would be able to cash out with at least $100 at any time that he wanted.  Within less than 30 minutes of the transaction, he made his own sniping comment back at me and said that the BTC transaction was showing as pending as $104.81 - suggesting that it already lost value.

So I sent him back a text saying that he could cash out his bitcoin at any time and even though there are not guarantees, there remains a decent chance that at various points within the next 3 years that his received bitcoin will be worth at least 50% more than it's current value, and that there are not too many other assets that I would be comfortable making a similar kind of an assertion.  As I type this post, BTC prices are about $7,500, and the value on my wallet is showing the value of the $105 at about $106.91.

Accordingly, I conclude that my yesterday's Btc prediction to my relative was fairly conservative.  

Furthermore, with almost anyone getting into bitcoin, I feel relatively comfortable recommending at any Btc price point that they put at least 1% of their quasi-liquid investment value into bitcoin. Of course, any newbie bitcoin investor could increase that investment amount up to 10% and even though such an increased allocation would be more risky, it would not compose a very large amount of their total quasi-liquid investment capital.

Maybe some of you guys in bitcoin have been investing into bitcoin for several years, and maybe you did not put 100% into bitcoin, but you put a decent percentage, something like 5% of your initial investment into bitcoin?  But probably now the value of your bitcoin assets is in the 40% to 70% or more arena even though you may have also pulled out some or all of your initial investment?  

Is 40% to 70% allocation an Over-allocation into BTC?

I believe that my current allocation into BTC is about 75%, yet that allocation had grown to over 90% when the btc price had gone up to $19,666, even though my initial starting investment amount was in the 10% to 15% arena.

Am I Over-allocated into BTC?

My particular imbalance of value towards Btc came from Btc price appreciation over the past 2.5 years rather than from my putting that value into Btc but still doesn't seem to motivate me to want to pull out a lot of the value from Btc even when having such a volatile asset composing such a large percentage of my total does cause ongoing erratic value swings. Go figure.

I have very little faith in fiat currencies and definitely do not keep more than 5-10% in them at any one time. What country is stable enough to hold their fiat? Even investments denominated in fiat are still subject to the inflationary nature of the underlying fiat.

If you look at the US, they are currently $20 trillion in debt with over $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities (meaning, future promised money will not be able to be paid by future taxes). The payment per year in just the interest on the debt is around $300 billion. The defense budget is one of the highest expenditures at $600 billion. Eventually the interest on the debt will be higher than defense spending. The only way to keep paying it will be to borrow more which makes the interest payment higher going into a debt spiral.
The only way out of it is to either raise taxes (which will only go so far) or cut spending (never gonna happen) or the easiest thing to do is print enough money so that $20 trillion is not that much money (same as a loaf of bread). My thought is that they will choose the latter. What happens to your $100k in google stocks when $100k is worth a tank of gas?

-insert dream about becoming rich via shitcoins so he can play videogames all day-

Sorry roach. That ship already sailed. I bought bitcoin @ $30, NXT @ like $0.001, Monero @ $4 and IOTA @ $0.01.

I would be rich af if I didn't take profit like it was my religion but I can still play video games all day if I want.

What price did you buy bitconnect at?

I just listed everything that I ever bought that was even remotely like a cryptocurrency. That includes ERC20 tokens, ICO's, everything. If it wasn't on that list I didn't buy it. And I dumped NXT and IOTA (the more scammy ones listed) entirely after I had locked in a good profit. I didn't "believe in" them or "hodl" them. As of now I only own Monero and Bitcoin.

*correction* I owned a little bit of litecoin and the original bytecoin a LONG time ago. Nothing serious there. Just messing around a bit with those two back when there were only even a few altcoins in existence.

I was just kidding. It sounds like you got in at some nice entry points. I got my Monero at around that price, and am still holding a good chunk of it.

Edit: I was holding it, until I lost it all in that tragic boating accident

My thought is that they will choose the latter. What happens to your $100k in google stocks when $100k is worth a tank of gas?


When I was referring to quasi-liquid assets, I was thinking about any kind of asset that you could invest into, and performing a kind of ball park estimation about what the value of those assets would be, and then considering investing (or allocating) a portion of the value of those assets into bitcoin. 

Since this is the dollar to bitcoin thread, we frequently talk in terms of dollars, and surely some of our assets will be directly in dollars, but some of our assets will be directly related to the dollar, such as owning stocks or bonds or some combination of index funds.

When I got into bitcoin, I was not a newbie to investing because I had bought property and I had also dollar cost average invested into various kinds of stocks and bonds like products.  There were times that I had also considered investing in PMs such as gold and silver because I had considered that so may of my investments were so tied into the value of the dollar that gold might provide a decent amount of non-correlation, yet some of the cumbersome nature of gold and silver and even attempting to verify that it is legitimate or figuring out how to spend it in an emergency, made me consider hoarding or even accumulation of pms to be very impractical. 

Even in late 2013, when I first started looking into Bitcoin, there seemed to be a certain gold-like and non-correlated value in bitcoin that brought a certain level of insurance (and hedging) comfort from putting a portion of your total assets into it (just so your investments are not so much tied to one thing - which I had considered to be the dollar). 

One other aspect of liquid asset might be assessing something that is not very liquid, such as a business that is worth $200k or something like that, but maybe the non-liquid aspect of it would cause a quasi-liquid assessment of $20k or some fraction of the value (merely because such business is not very liquid) - and similar calculations of liquidity may be made of other assets in order to determine how much to invest into bitcoin and what might be a 1% investment or a 10% investment... approximately.

Nice, thanks for sharing. I do believe that the Bitcoin Massive Black Hole will mesmerize all the crap alt in the next years. That is going to require a huge load of popcorns

This is true. As Bitcoin continues to live on though, it will be the younger, newer generations of Average Joe that takes a chance with Bitcoin. They come into the working world with more disdain for the existing financial structure, less debt (except student loans), less skepticism of Bitcoin, less to lose and everything to gain.

Grandma and Grandpa ain't coming in droves, sorry. Grandma and Grandpa can't even afford to buy Precious Metals anymore, much less Bitcoin. Plus the MSM has mindfucked them to believe that Bitcoin is a scam.

Get the fuck out of here with your nonsense proclamation that regular Joes cannot afford bitcoin.  

They only believe that they cannot afford bitcoin, which seems to tie in with your overall point that they are being mindfucked by mainstream media.

Ultimately, you and I are likely pretty close to agreeing, and probably I am merely quibbling with the mixture of your nonsense points that are embedded into your other relatively decent points.   Tongue Tongue    Shocked

Nah, I think you are just quibbling. I still stand by what I said. With the exception of Jimbo and maybe a few other guys here over the age of 60, most I have met have zero interest in Bitcoin. They think it's a scam created by the gubmint to get everyone into their "centralized digital currency" in order to control them. They don't trust it. They trust PMs more. Plus a lot of baby boomers are just flat broke and in debt. They are spending all their money on bills and trying to enjoy life.

If you go younger, in the 40-50 yr old range, you find a lot of guys that are just flat out hostile towards Bitcoin, like it threatens their very way of life or something. You should of heard the vitriol that my (former) Accountant was spewing about Bitcoin in 2013. Thank god I didn't listen to that idiot and dumped him. Most guys in that age range I've talked to simply scoff and laugh at the notion of buying any bitcoin.

I believe that you have to go down to the under-35 crowd before you start finding many people with an open mind toward Bitcoin...
It becomes harder to learn and consider new ideas the older you get. It's like cement, in the beginning it fills whatever form it's in. It starts getting dry and you can maybe put a handprint in it or something. Then it hardens into rock.

My grandpa couldn't figure out a cell phone. We gave him one, told him push the green button when it rings. He couldn't do it. Just how it goes.

If there is any hope left of turning the culture around, it lies with the young.

Quote from: Poll_(moderation_policy)
(A) Delete more posts trying to steer the conversation away from Bitcoin
(B) Delete more offensive posts (nazi-related, etc.)
(C) Both of the above / general increase in moderation needed
(D) The moderation has been fine
(E) We need less moderation / pure anarchy
(F) We need a new thread moderator

I voted (D), because I know I couldn't do any better than Infofront. A thankless job, almost invisible if swiftly managed. I would also like a few more distracting posts deleted - in the direction of (B), not A or C. The problem is drawing a straight line and, more importantly, spending the energy - physical and emotional - to implement it. Calling him out is really a bit unforgiving.

Let's be honest: We all do take turns in engaging such unsavoury characters. I agree that the auto-propagation of /ignore's to direct quotes would be quite useful.

TL;DR Necessary evil. Deal with it. Use that button if you must.
Bitcoin is not just about money and tech, it's a cultural shift. Nazis are part of that. Get over it already.

Prince Phillip would agree with so many cousins in the nazi family.
And then of course His wifes grandfather George who conspired to have his cousin Nicholas the Tsar overun by boshelviks
Needs his say too
So weird

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Saxe-Coburg_and_Gotha

The House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha is a German dynasty  ... sentiment in the United Kingdom during World War I, George V changed the name of his branch from "Saxe-Coburg and Gotha" to "Windsor" in 1917.


Always 1917, all happens in 1917 (weird)
