I wasn't around in 2011.  Can you tell us more about what it was like?

My brain is frazzled and running on caffeine. Here are some loosely organized thoughts:

I started GPU mining around May 2011. BTC bubbled to ~$32 somewhere thereabouts (June-July?) and then collapsed to ~$2. The bear market was swift and brutal.

There was practically no infrastructure or major investment, aside from early ASICs that would soon come online. Hell, Roger Ver's memorydealers.com was one of the few places you could even spend bitcoins. Mt. Gox was basically the only exchange, of course.

Home GPU miners like me were a major part of the ecosystem, and we were purged at this time, as decreasing prices and skyrocketing difficulty soon made mining unprofitable. There was a sort of loss of innocence as we were wiped out and large industrial mining farms took over.

The overall feeling was similar to other bear markets - agony, despair, etc. However, many of us took to heart the rumors of bitcoin's demise. It seemed likely that bitcoin would, at best, remain something of a hobby for cypherpunks. OTOH, the despair was different. It was more about the loss of a dream, and less about the loss of money. Since BTC was so cheap, most people only had like a few grand invested, at most. Unlike Dec. 2017-18 when even the shoeshine boy lost $100K+.
                                                     

very good summary. 

In terms of the current lower price I think of things this way. Back in say Feb 2016 the price was $1612. It was just 8% of the later ATH. Imagine if the ATH had happened some time before feb 2016 then we would have dropped some 92% at Feb 2016.   Would we have been as "happy" at $1612 as we were in reality or crying doom. Transfer that to today and if we end up at $1612 or somewhere close just see it as  a very flat period since feb 2016 (ie ignore the boom/bust bit). We 'survived' a long flat period at around $250 and did not think the world would end.  Just HODL even at some very low figure - it will pull away at some point in the next few years and you can cash out with healthy profits if you do not want to go through yet another cycle though to date regularly and slowly buying and HODL has been very good to those that practice it. Even those that have been "caught" buying in old bubbles (eg $31 , $1000 ) as still quids in.   It may take a few years but even buying at $20,000 in 2017 will seem a great deal.                                                                                                                                          

Even though I believe that i understand your overall point, and that is buying BTC at any time will provide long term BTC profits, as long as the buyer is a holder on a long enough time line - perhaps greater than 5 years?

Regarding your reference to February 2016?  I think that you are referring to some other time line, especially if you are referring to a $1,612 price?   

In February 2016, BTC prices were largely stuck in a $350 to $450 range until about end of May 2016 when BTC prices broke back above $500.
 

Between about January 2017 and May 2017, BTC prices were breaking above the previous ATH of $1,163 from more than 3 years earlier, but anyhow BTC is not really leaving these various extreme kinds of volatility - not yet.

I'm prepared to buy all the way down. I will not begin until we reach the next resistance area around $2,700ish.

I did a test buy at $3300 to see if my bank would allow it.

Then another slightly larger test as it was coming back up.

Will buy more as it bounces around that number.

...  It seems that you are more pessimistic than I would like....


I am more pessimistic than I would like.

However, I always try to edit out my own wishful optimism and focus on an unbiased objective view.


I always did the same thing in stock trading forums etc..  The odd thing is, my actual trading is more optimistic, and I tend to hold back in hope and compromise a little, rather than fully carry out the hard realistic trades. When I look back at my own posts I usually wish I had followed my own advice more closely.

Its kind of like I am second-guessing myself, or splitting my personality. Seems to generate profit in practice, over the long term. Hopefully I'm still sane.

I wonder if any other posters recognise that method in themselves ?

Good morning Bitcoinland.

Nice to see that today's sideways has an upward slope to it... currently $3647USD/$4860CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

Glad I bought while the price was down.

Jimbo earnestly and sincerely telling us all to go fuck ourselves would also really help. Our families are waiting in desperate need so please do the right thing sirs.

That's a tough one. How about if I just tell all the crybabies, trolls, altcoiners, negative Nellies, Bitcoin haters, permabears, racists/misogenists, etc to go fuck themselves. Will that do?

Jimbo good sir. I know its tough, but think of our families please. Telling the bad guys to fuck themselves nice and proper while posting Carolina memes and rocket pics is how you end a bull market. Telling hat wearing Bitcoin hodler cheerleaders to fuck off after years of telling them all good morning though will bring us true capitulation if Goose will post the pinto beans meal. You can always say you were kidding once the huge green dildo and epic volume comes. JJG has already made his sacrifice with a short post where he didnt use the word "seemingly" even one time. and we all know Searing is on the verge of capitulating the next big red dildo he sees. Roach is building his confidence and the next leg down he will surely talk to a girl after six years of silence. Its up to you, but Im afraid the bottom wont be in until you do this for us.


THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR JIMBO
 
BE THE ONE WE NEED

TELL THE BITCOIN CHEERLEADERS TO FUCK THEMSELVES

SAVE THE WORLD (our families)

Edit: I see Goose was kind enough to help save our families and post a pic of inexpensive fast food with no gf present. Jimbo, its in your hands more than ever now.

Conclusion and Price Commentary

While it may be true that mining pools selling Bitcoin to fund losses in the Bitcoin Cash hashwar may have been a catalyst for the reduction in the price, we think it’s easy to overestimate the impact of this. We are in a bear market and prices are falling regardless of the news or investment flows.

Furthermore, in a bear market prices seem to fall on non-news or bad news and ignore good news, while in a bull market the reverse appears true. We think it’s likely that prices would have been weak regardless of any miner selling prior to the Bitcoin Cash split. For cryptocurrency, trader sentiment is king.

This is likely to be a very tough time for the mining industry. However, for miners with lower costs, our basic analysis indicates that the situation may be better than people expect. If the miners acquired their equipment from Bitmain at below-cost prices, they could still be in the green, even when including depreciation and other administrative expenses.
