my 2c about bitcoin and [helping] children.

IMHO, parents should help children achieve what they want to achieve and that's it.
Practically: get them into the best pre-school and school that you can manage/afford, guide their learning and sports activities (in balance), never deny them what they ask as far as education goes (museums, trips, etc.).
I also think that parents should pay as close to 100% of educational expenses (including college) as possible.

After this, the only way I see myself helping is a house downpayment (in expensive cities).
They have to be able to be independent, not rely on trust funds, even if your btc winnings would allow for this in a few years.
Later on, they will get their inheritance, but, hopefully, they would be ready for it then.

I agree and I also believe teaching them to save with their own earnings (regardless of any debts owing) is crucial at a young age.  I started a savings account with my son in BTC when he turned 19 with the understanding that it will be a deposit only account until he's 40 or decided to buy a home.  A very small amount goes in each month.  My hope is that it'll represent/reinforce the notion of personal financial security while the value increases until a time where it actually does offer such security.

Interesting points from both.
Some people actually like being frugal, aka driving much less of a car than they can afford. WB is of course an example. Maybe they get off on power, etc.
Sometimes it also could be a work place. If you suddenly show up with a Lambo or McLaren GT in a middle income workplace, there might be too many questions.
On the other hand, what's the point if you can't spend a bit.

The rich stay rich by acting poor. The poor stay poor by acting rich.

The blingiest people I've come across never had a pot to piss in. I have an in law who's the richest person I know. He makes a couple of million quid a year. The last time he stayed at a fancy hotel the staff asked him to hide his 2003 Skoda out the back.

Well said.
He did stay in the fancy hotel, so THAT is his weak spot, lol.
Everyone probably has at least one.

He spends properly on travel. If you broke into his house you'd probably smash it up in disgust. My rubbish bin has more valuables in it than the whole of his place.

How about you JJG ? How will you be spending your money if you don't mind me asking ?

I am going to be traveling quite a lot in the near future, and I suppose that I will be searching for ways to spend more money... that is a bit unclear at the moment.

Currently, I am trying to not get too geographically tied down, but I may need to create a couple of bases, that might be a little costly depending on how I set up the bases.    Part of a goal of attempting to live well on passive income would be to NOT work too hard and NOT get tied down too much with obligations.  I have had hard work in the past and also obligations that I continue to try to lessen those.. and maybe more money could help with some of that, too?  Perhaps?

By the way, as I type, she appears to be getting ready to test $11,111.11, again.  

I know that Hairy already posted that a few days ago, but seemingly imminent, once again... within minutes, perhaps?  We are bouncing off of $11,092 as I type.

Good one. I told my son that I would either open a Roth IRA for him (at 19) and deposit his first year earnings there OR btc...the brat chose btc.
Oh, well, it can't be helped. So far, maybe 60% ROI, we shall see.

I too have a thing with cars. I like to drive them until they don't drive anymore. Wash them once in a ... Roll Eyes

Ah, Bitcoin is like the very HOT bi-polar Girlfriend. When it is bad, it is very, very bad.

But when it is good, she is very, very bad...(er, distracted myself) ..I mean all is great!

But there seems to be no in between. I alas, am addicted to the drama, I'm afraid.

I HODL, thus co-enabling this merciless bitch that has my heart. Sad

Well, Bitcoin is always interesting, to say the least

And many people are born doomed when it comes to money. No matter what they can't make the best of it or hang on to it. I've seen it many times. It's a talent as much as anything and you can't teach that.
Actually...

No talk about rats and how similar we are to them today, just one word. Amygdala.

The bigger it is the easier it is to earn and manage money. And we know what makes it grow. So, to whatever degree that part of the brain matters, it can be taught. Even self-taught.

I can only judge on what's placed in front of me. And the people who were broke and crap with money decades ago are still broke and crap with money now despite at various points earning vastly more than I ever did.

They pay lip service to sorting their shit out and then go and shit all over that. I've genuinely never known anyone who broke out of that behaviour.

CME will open in an hour... will be interesting to see what happens; must suck to sit on a short and not being able to get out over the weekend  Tongue

Does somebody know how the price limit works? I mean halting BTC futures trading will not get BTC price changing.
Will the be forced settlements?
