I am afraid dear hodlers, that soon we will have a big problem! No, I am not talking about a crash! I am talking about going above 10K. Last time some of us (like me) didn't sell anything, but what will you do, when we hit 15K-ish zone again? I am just curious (this may be kinda of a new poll), if you have any strategy? Hodl all, sell 1/3, sell 1/2, sell all, or other. I am pumping up myself to hodl everything until I reach the right amount for a nice beach villa, new car and savings equivalent to my salary before my retirement after 20 years.  Hopefully the property will be paid with BTC, so I may not sell BTC at all  Grin So far, I have only one strategy for BTC:


There should be no problem with any strategy that continues to shave off small amounts of Bitcoin all the way up to $20k.. and maybe even considering proceeds from those sales as insurance to buy back on the way back down, if the price goes down.  I use something in the territory of 1% for every 10% price rise, and variations of that can work.

I do recognize a kind of phenomenon that tweaks down could be made around the $20k territory because once we get that close (assuming so), then there becomes a real decently increased likelihood that the price will shoot well past the previous ATH.  30% past?  50% past?  100% past?  There are going to be corrections along the way, but sometimes when the price is shooting up, any person might not be able to figure out when the price is going to pause in its upwards trajectory and even with small sell amounts along the way, feel as if s/he is selling too much because the price just keeps going up... but then likely the same person will thank himself/herself for selling along the way when the price suddenly and unexpectedly stops going up and gets into a 10%, 20%, 50% correction phase that could last several weeks before resuming UP.



but what will you do, when we hit 15K-ish zone again? I am just curious (this may be kinda of a new poll), if you have any strategy? Hodl all, sell 1/3, sell 1/2, sell all, or other.

The baseline doesn't change. Sell X coins every Y increase in price, buy X coins every Y decrease in price. When the bankroll starts getting small, change the buys to X-epsilon.

Of course, this can be modified by bulk sells to fund interesting things. I'm likely to sell a couple percent when it gets to $25k or $50k or somesuch.

But mostly hodl. Always be hodling. You don't want to feel like a chump when it 10x's from your exit point, and you ain't got nothing but a semi-big pile of stinky fiat.

Yes...  Thanks for that jbreher.. You have provided a good and succinct way of describing a sound and prudent long-term BTC guidance strategy that helps any of us to make sure that we are reasonably accumulating BTC and preparing for BTC price volatility that is not only expected but in the territory of inevitable.   Cool

The morning should start with the right coffee  Wink


Do you personally have one of those kinds of customizable coffee makers too?  or did you go to a coffee shop or find the image on the interwebs?  Mic has access to one of those machines, but no one has yet explained how they work in the real world including if the coffee shops just charge an extra fee for such service or they make those potentially customizable images for free  (like hats, but the hats are surely more understandably done through knowledge, creativity and playing around with photoshop features).

When i order one i can upload an image through Qr code and it costs a little extra
Like 1€ i think.....
But the coffee looks better that way Smiley
Going smoother inside etc....
And its just something funny ( most of times the coffee maker doesn’t understand my images)
Regulars are Mickey mouse etc Cheesy

Mostly speculative equity investing.

"The fund will also hold a small percentage of its value in liquid cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin"

A small percentage of $40M is nothing.

Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if BCH pumps harder during the next bull run.  Doesn't take a genius to know that the alts pump a lot harder during bullruns.

Doesn't take a genius to know that something with a low-ass market cap, and low liquidity is a lot less expensive to pump than something that is spread out more with a higher market cap (such as bitcoin).  Accordingly a lot of that shit is going to pump, but does not justify investing into it (unless you are ready, willing and able to strategize your exit so you don't get screwed).

Thanks for the explanation .. it does take a bit away from my "micteam" thesis...

By the way, on a quasi-related note:  I like that idea of a new anti-nick.., nick that you dropped there, mic.... which goes something like this:  Mic might be a peep and he might be a team and he might be a temporary mcdo worker, but he is no mickey mouse...   Wink   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy    Tongue

It sounds like it's going to be another shit fork.

I'm all for free money, but moving cold storage BTC around is a PITA. With Dick Heart backing the project, it could pump enough to make it worthwhile. OTOH, he's kind of irrelevant now.

I mostly don't like calling speculative equity investing a crypto fund. Then the stupid businesses fail and it's blamed on Bitcoin. Same thing happened with the ICO's. If you buy an ICO you deserve to lose all your money. It has nothing to do with Bitcoin.

Just when you think FUD in crypto space cant get worse, new crap pops up.
All of a sudden the xrp scam is worth half as much as BTC and more than double marketcap of ETH
Calculation is based on total coins, so you free to figure out what will happen with only 16.5% of bitcoin to mine and 40% of junk to come.
Real Bitcoin is also quickly found or more correctly not found as blatantly ignored.

Brexit should definitely have an impact on the price of Bitcoin and the BTC/USD - but my inner guts tell me the price of GBP/USD will go up the sooner we get to the brexit date, this is how the manipulated markets work.

Heresy.

Frankly, I don't care if miners are sick of the data they have to store. It doesn't make any practical difference to them. Whatever size we use or change it to, top miners will remain top miners and shit miners will remain shit miners.

Where it does make a difference is to everyone else. Nobody wants high fees, except miners. And only those short sighted, on the long term the smaller the fees the more people will get into bitcoin. Time to kill this sick dog of an idea.
