The Lambo thing has become an in-joke that I really wish would go away.

The MSM likes the analogy and association because it paints Bitcoiners as petty and childish asshats. Kinda like Tai Lopez.

Lambos are better associated with the BCash and ICO/shitcoin crowd. I mean, Roger and CSW drive them, so....?

Agreed.  BTC is for TESLAs  Grin


gotta step in here quickly.......   please when paying more than avg for a car than go for the real engine and the real feeling not Electric  Tongue (doesn't have to be lambo offcourse.....)BUT real engine's when its still possible maybe in a few years there gone to ....
Electric or something will replace oil engines but for the moment i really don't like electric cars yet


OK then, try an electric bike!  I bought mine with BTC last summer.  Grin

Carbon footprint and all that..... considering we support global energy hog BTC, it's the least we can do.

By Bitcoin, I mean BCH - the real Bitcoin. Does that change your answer?

Paging @Theymos.

Requesting new thread manager.

You Have My Sword, And My Bow, And My Axe...

You fool. Don't you know you've already lost?
Your pathetic weapons are of no threat to us. We control the mining and ASIC production.
We own bitcoin.com, /r/btc on reddit, and @bitcoin on twitter.
Bitpay, the only major bitcoin merchant processor remaining, has been shilling bcash for months. Brian Armstrong of Coinbase is in our back pocket.
Didn't you hear? We have Craig Wright on our side. Yes, that's right - Satoshi Nakamoto himself has fallen under the dark influence of bcash.

As we speak, Ver is sending his Roger Wraiths to secure bitcointalk and /r/bitcoin at any cost.
Soon enough, your precious Theymos will be just another sockpuppet in our endless bcash army!
There is no hope. It is only a matter of time before we control the one blockchain to rule them all.

Optimize it with ezgif.com, then resize it until it's below 2MB.

Afterwards upload the smaller image back to imgur.

Lambos are better associated with the BCash and ICO/shitcoin crowd. I mean, Roger and CSW drive them, so....?

My lambo is my brand new fully paid off house. Less flashy but also less childish.

Why would you pay for a home with cash when at least 80% of it could have been reinvested?

I closed in late January of this year. Figure it out.

I don't care if you cashed out at 20,000 per btc and made half a million dollars. That doesn't change what I said. Buying a house in cash is a waste of equity. Think bigger!

That is functionally equivalent to investing borrowed money. I'm not willing to invest borrowed money. Bitcoin is neat. I understand the protocol better than 99.999% of people, and I think I understand enough about economics and fiance to see the value proposition in that protocol, but I still don't trust myself nearly enough to invest with borrowed money. There could always be some part of the picture that I'm just missing. It's not worth losing everything I have because I made an error.

Actually, there is a bit of an experiential point here that makes sense. 

I recall way back in 2016, I had made BTC selling projections that tentatively hypothesized how much BTC I would sell at various points up the ladder, and surely in mid 2016, there were a lot of folks who stated that they would sell all their BTC at various points above $1k, and $3k to $5k seemed a bit fantastical even within grasp.

I had maintained a tentative price projection of $3k to $5k as being towards the top of the possible next BTC price upsurge, but even those numbers seemed a bit out of grasp with low probabilities, especially in the near term.

In mid 2017, after BTC prices had passed through $1k and $2k, and had already tested $3k resistance, without breaking it, I felt that I had to revise my expectations of the upper price range into the mid $7k territory, so each of these price projections were hypothetical and provided some outlines about how much BTC to sell on the way up, and tentatively projected the amount of cash that would be generated based on such BTC sales.

The reality of the actual BTC price passage above $7k and then breaking above $10k and $20k caused me to have to rethink my own situation based on the actual specifics about what to do with all that money that in actuality had been generated rather than being merely hypothetical and on paper....

Surely, when we do not have very much money, it makes a lot of sense to leverage money through loans, especially when we are buying likely relatively appreciating and possibly non-correlated assets, such as real property.  On the other hand, contemplating leveraging and the various burdens of loans, seems to be more of a hassle than it is worth when contemplating actual places to deploy excess dollars...

Gotta congratulate you jbreher, if you were lucky enough to pull out a bit of excess dollar generation in price areas that were in the ballpark of 20x beyond the short term BTC price expectations that many of us were having in mid-2016..

Yeah, the .gif is 6.6mb on disk.

The forums do not support images that large, as another user already noted.

Most of investing is done with borrowed money lol. There is such a thing as good debt. But if you're happy with your financial situation, then good for you. Keep doing you.

Buying a house in cash is a waste of equity. Think bigger!

What about paying off an existing mortgage with free BCash, investing over $2M in a managed portfolio for the next 20 years, and retiring early ?  Kiss

As I said to the last person, if that financial situation is good enough for you, so be it. It just seems like the general consensus from Bitcoin "investors" here is that retiring is more interesting than the game of investing itself. I guess I just have a different outlook on things. I personally would never retire early with just two million.

 Okay, I'll come clean.  I pulled the 2MB limit out of my butt! Honestly,  I did some limited testing a while back and it seemed that 2MB was the sweet spot but as it turns out, Theymos had originally set the limit to 1.5MB and then in December of 2013, increased the limit to 2.5MB at the request of bitpop.

REF: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=388403

 So the limit is 2.5MB - fill your boots!
