actually, to be perfectly honest, if I'da sold a coin or two at 19k,
I'd be feeling pretty gloat-ish about now...

In retrospect I ought to have unloaded the whole bucket and never looked back. So it goes

But..bbut... this is exactly what people said back in Dec 2013 when the price hit $1200. Many did unload it all then.

And they regret it now.

Some didn't. And they feel awesome right now, even after this latest downturn.

You know it's gonna happen again, and it will be even more epic.

This is what keeps me going mostly. My highest buy was @$15.5k. I bought 4 times more when it was above 10k (14k x2, 13k and 12k) rest of my buys are all below 10k and somehow I can still survive a price as low as $2.5k  Grin



But that's not the only reason why I am buying. BTC is still a good buy even if it moves sideways for the next 5 years. I like the idea carrying all your wealth with you where ever you go. Just memorize your seed and your brain is your bank.

Since the adoption has grown so big, (still not as big as we'd like it to be) you can just survive solely on bitcoins.

But these are the boring features of bitcoin mostly. If I told you that I was only interested in these features only, I would be lying. (and you wouldn't believe me) Of course sometimes I find myself dreaming of a big sailboat and naked girls and that's motivating as fuck too.  Grin

A few of us got really enthusiastic about it. Then everybody got pissed 'cuz they thought we all got rich about it.

Then some of us just got poor about it again. It's a karmic rollercoaster. And it's not a free ride.

$19k was just ‘elevated’. I was awaiting ‘frenzy’ at $50k. But someone pulled the plug early.

Sergey Brin says Google 'failed to be on the bleeding edge' of blockchain
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/09/brin-says-google-failed-the-bleeding-edge-blockchain.html

Quote
As for his personal interest in blockchain and the digital currencies that it's spawned, Brin admitted he doesn't know "a whole lot about cryptocurrency," but an amateur mining rig set-up with his son piqued his interest.

"A year or two ago my son insisted that we needed to get a gaming PC," Brin said. "I told him If we get a gaming PC we have to mine cryptocurrency. So we got an ethereum miner on there and we’ve been making a few pennies and dollars since."

Brin said, "that definitely got me interested and I started to study the technology behind it and found it to be fascinating."


Is Sergey Brin playing coy about crypto, or is he seriously just out of touch? Sergey, this shit has been around for nine years now!

I will admit that Roger is a decent story teller; however, he does not really seem to understand the concept of "torture."  

On the other hand, even if he can show that he has various human characteristics and he is empathetic, a lot of this can end up being a distraction (and an appeal to emotion) that takes us away from considering the narcissism that seems to motivate his ongoing involvement in bcash and using bcash as an ongoing attack on bitcoin and deceiving other people (especially dumb people and newbies.. and probably even traps some smarter people into such deceptions in their hopes that bcash will pump relative to bitcoin if they realize the difference) into believing that bcash is some kind of "bitcoin"

It was torturous listening to him, I got to he had to lay off workers before I just shut him off. I've been there for taking on the man as well and doubt he knows what torture is or how easily you can be found hung even in a "civilized" nation. He's lucky they didn't demonize him first.

Yes.  At the time of Roger's lock-up for the "fireworks", he was 22 years old and an unknown, but just from his description, he did not seem to experience any kind of real torture, and overall he may have received a bit on the kit glove treatment side. 

If Roger were locked up now, he could have some bad experiences based on his exponentially increased notoriety - but since he is rich, too, currently, rich people do NOT tend to get tortured when they go to jail, unless there are really extreme and revolutionary things going on in the society.  By the way, I would not wish torture on anyone, even if they have some despicable personality traits, but there are concepts of fairness/justice that assert that letting the punishment fit the crime would be the right thing to do in figuring out punishment(s).

@Torque - I agree, I would have been a millionaire if I’d cashed out at $19,xxx during the last ATH. I didn’t cash out.....
I know that we’ll see way above $20,000 in the future & I’ll be rewarded for my patience.

North of $50,000 per coin after the next halving.

I’m pretty sure the average 75 year old redneck Trump supporter ain’t got no brain but ok.

Trump is a self-absorbed and entitled retard.

No one with a brain could or should support someone like that on a reasonable and rational basis.  You only support him, with a brain, because you consider him as a useful tool for your cause - whether it is him destroying and disempowering social aspects of government or the other uncertainties that he brings that you believe work to your advantage.

However the inability of the left to champion the cause of the working class is really disappointing.  How did the right become the champion of the rural working classes. Something went badly wrong there.  

There does seem to have been a bit of a social transformation when working class people fail/refuse to understand their position as a working class - and believe that they are advantaged by systems that privilege the rich while failing to provide for opportunity and fair channels for regular peeps.... sure the very industrious are more likely to find a workable channel to cause a certain amount of their own social mobility, even with the existence of structural disadvantages.

I am sufficiently self - aware to appreciate that the preceding two paragraphs do not sit well together and may provide some insight into the current predicament.  

Sometimes social dynamics can change so fast that it is difficult to figure out what is going on, or to have time to try to figure it out and to cause folks to actually act in their self interest - rather than being led down some kind of fantasy path or to play into the hands of the powers that are not looking out for them.

Further, full credit to the Koch brothers for getting rural working classes to hate people who want to give them free health care, free education and workers rights.  That was truly masterful.  You have to appreciate the audacity and execution.

I agree that it works out for the persistent rich who beat away at the consciousness and institutions to get their way and to brainwash folks into believing that the system is fairly set up for them.  So it takes a bit of genius and luck to find a path to social mobility in these current kinds of circumstances.

Maybe you cant conflate all students into "student"

Some worked hard got good jobs and earned big money. Some assumed they will never repay the debt partied it away and didn't give a shit. and I bet many more variations.

I agree with you that the variation in student debt likely parallels regular society, but I would imagine that students should be a bit smarter than average peeps - and therefore, have some greater abilities to realize that there is a difference between investing in building capital (making yourself smarter or putting your money to work into a business or a likely value appreciating asset) versus consumption (such as partying and buying depreciating items such as luxury cars versus a practical car, if needed).

Fuck mortgages and fuck debts. I am glad I don't have neither.

If i want something, I just buy it. If I don't have the money then I skip it. What is wrong with people they can't understand a simple concept like this. If you don't have the money why the fuck would you go under a debt??

I personally believe that there is good debt and bad debt.  Good debt is investing in some thing(s) that are likely to appreciate in value or allow you to earn more capital/value/wealth.

One of the great potential use cases of bitcoin remains that it could give folks access to capital and wealth that they might not otherwise be able to access through traditional means - including some places do not even have credit cards that are available to regular peeps, and if you use your credit card debt wisely, you can profit from such debt access.

They do keep trying. I get a lot of please take our 0% offer  (1.9% fee is not 0%) idiots.

There are definitely ways (strategies) to roll that kind of credit card debt access to your advantage... as long as you use the money to earn money or to strengthen your cashflow.

If you use such investments on depreciating assets, or you don't figure out a way to pay it off in full at the end of its promotional period, then you will fuck yourself (and that is what they count upon for profits), but if you have a plan and stick to your plan, you can play the 0% (including whatever fees - 1% or 5% or whatever it is for you) to your financial advantage (while building your mainstream "credit worthiness", too).
