Long at $20k is a dumb explanation.

No one with any brains is long at $20k for 16 months without, at minimum, making some additional buys to bring down their average cost per BTC.

In other words, it should be quite difficult to sympathize with anyone who made that kind of dumb gambling move to buy at $20k and to sit on it without having further plans and action in the 16 months.

Edit:  By the way, you raised a bit of a different point, Hueristic, so we are deviating from the original point that I was attempting to make.  I went back to my original post, linked above, and for context, that post was questioning how it seems that so many people involved in such a greatly performing asset class, such as bitcoin, since 2013 are "poor."

It takes money to make money. Also if they were over extended during the fall and had to take a loss to survive then well that is pretty easy to figure out.

 I don't know, that avatar makes me a little queasy.  Maybe I can do one blindfolded.


Had to look up 'queasy'!

Please improvise - as always. That would be just the main idea I suppose. You excel in 3D claw marks from what I can tell.
Other than that, he can speak for himself. My work here is done. Cool
Thank you.

I enjoy seeing new vernacular used as its always fun to see things expressed in a inexorable fashion. I once used "Sans" in a post on a forum and noticed it was used and inordinate amount in the next few months, I thought that was cool. Smiley

Sometimes "poor" is a subjective, rather than objective status.
A guy losing 450 mil out of 500 mill might feel "poor", but he is not, objectively.
There was a dialogue about it in "Billions" where Ax talks to a hedge fund manager who is left with "just" 200 mil.
The opposite could be true too. Did everyone felt "rich" when we were about to climb over 20K?
I felt mostly bewildered.

hats snipped

FOMO kills

Hey... I won't dispute that you can become rich by already being rich - however, I have always been a long term opponent of gambling when it comes to bitcoin - especially, since with a bit of study into the bitcoin matter, there is already decently convincing evidence that bitcoin maintains a ongoing great upside potential.. so with a bit of patience, anyone has good chances of improving his/her/its conditions by exercising reasonably prudent ongoing buying and accumulating strategies... especially a dollar cost averaging approach. 

Of course, there is some difference in any position for someone coming into bitcoin in 2013 versus coming into bitcoin in 2017, and the 2013 folks have had 4 additional years to attempt to play to their advantage.

In other words, even though FOMO exists, it affects BTC price, some folks will advantage and others will be hurt by such FOMO dynamics, I continue to NOT have a lot of sympathy for folks who are not able to figure out a reasonable BTC buy/accumulation strategy in order to address their FOMO issues and to learn to consider bitcoin more as a long term investment rather than a short term gamble. 

Of course, there are exceptions of folks who really know how to play short term scenarios, but the vast majority of peeps are likely to have way success if they take a longer term perspective with bitcoin and to even consider at least a 5 year time-horizon, if that is within reason for them in terms of life expectancy, health and time/meat-wagon factors like that.

Am I the only one fine with this Tether scam/fud/whatever? Maybe two years ago, any bad development with Tether might affect the whole Bitcoin market. But there are other stablecoins now. Traders can just diversify or move to another stablecoin.

It's like when Poloniex support can't handle the customer volume and rumors of an exit scam are popping up. Many fled Poloniex, it affected the markets temporarily but Binance showed up and became the dominant exchange.

People will just move on. Markets will not be affected permanently.

Well lets take this thread as an example of a contrarian view, If someone new had come to the scene at the top then they would have been cost averaging the whole way down and would still be in the red.

This thread is a Pump and dump on the naysayers environment.

I personally don't care as I don't listen to shit you guys say but there are hoards of morons who do.

Nah, there are tons of threads warning about it.

I and many others been posting warnings for many years.

If they are on this site and haven't seen a warning then they are blind or don't know what the word diligence means, so tough shit on them.

Even though there seem to be a decent amount of posters in this thread that are buying into the evergreen Tether FUD, you are not the only one who recognizes the vast majority of the situation as FUD... whether you describe it as bitcoin does not give a fuck or an attack on tether and bitfinex.  Of course, if the US Gov (and perhaps associated traditional financial institutions), could shut down Tether and bitfiinex and at the same time, make a decent denigration effect on bitcoin, then they are going to pump that bullshit for as much as they can and for as long as they can get away with it.

actually my reply was a feeble attempt at humor. seeing as many of us like the many various flavors of chemicals and their effect of the brain.

anyway for me i consider myself neither rich nor poor. however since i started in 2011 i certainly could of done much better. and much worse of course.

i will say if i had just hodled everything i would of done better than some of the various diversions into mining, trading and such. basically some diversions worked, some did not.

but overall? man bitcoin has treated me very very well indeed, so no complaints even if it all crashes to zero in the next moment. worth the ride for sure.

Tnx, I will work a little more on this, I will include username and registration date.



My point of view is that if Tether and Bfx do not end in a drama..., we'll go up to $ 6000, go down 1,000 or 1,500 and then start climbing to finish the year at $10,000, in my opinion.
