One more BTC bull run and that's it. I'll be unemployed, living on passive income just like makrospex.

Merited, but bitcoin does not provide passive income, unless you are into rehypothecation games with blockfi, etc.
BTC is a hard money, but you need to exchange it to soft money to live off of (for now).

That's right. Sadly I'll have to break some bitcoins for FIAT to make that possible. (Depends on the investment, probably all, but 1)

I haven't decided what to do with the (imaginary) money yet. Maybe buying a few flats and renting them away to the wage slaves. The easiest,  o brainer, but a bit disgusting way to do it.

What other passive income ideas have you got? Help me out!

I am starting to think even $1m won't be enough to live free. Maybe I aimed too low. Shoulda aimed for $10m instead. :d Aand its going up, need to buy more before it leaves the surface of the earth completely.

This is one of the questions I am pondering as well.
A modification of your plan: buy vacation properties, then hire a management company to deal with them.
vacation properties in good vacation spots in US have a 5%-10% (of the property cost) yearly cash flow.Considering that with good credit score you'll need to put down only 5-10% of the property cost, it does sound interesting (not my idea, but i kind of like it).
Another advantage: you get to go on vacation at your own property where you carve out a week or two for yourself, Wink

At some point we all are going to realize there isn't "easy money" probably. (at least easy streaming money) BTC is the easiest money I've known so far. I made nearly as much (or more) money in 2 years from BTC by DCA'ing with pocket money than what I got from my job in 7 years.

Buying and renting properties is not really "passive". As others pointed out above, it is just another business where you still have customers.

Maybe It will be a better business than what you have now, maybe not but it is not really "passive"

Passive means "no effort" You spend effort to collect those damn rents.

you don't spend much effort if it is a vacation house as it is going either through management company, airbnb, vrbo, etc.
At least, this is my understanding of it. So far I was only the vacationer in those, though.

The new level to watch out is 10.100 usd on the btc cme chart.
If the 4h candle closes above that line it will be bullish at least for the short term.
observing $10,111

It's still $10,070 on the cme chart.

Maybe lucrative at first, but eventually they'll build too many "young professional apartments" buildings in one city, and crash the market.

is it safe to invest in btc now?
Yes I think it's currently pretty safe. The mining profitability is still low and the hashrate doesn't stop to rise, so I think miners won't be able to sell their btc at those prices very long
In brief, I think bitcoin is a little bit undervalued in relation to its real cost at the moment.

Above $10,000 again but for how long this time, can we say goodbye to 4 digits forever?

Probably not!

Probably not!

If we manage to break $11200 and stay there for a while, I'd say yes.

2013 to be exact.

Indeed a lot has changed. The age range has expanded considerably and there are many more women involved now, at least where I live.

Also the income profile has probably expanded as the Bitcoin community has grown. 6 years ago we were mostly well-educated geeks with comfortable tech jobs, businesses, or retirement/investment earnings. Now there are more students, laborers, pensioners, and others with smaller incomes involved.

I'd also guess that "Americans" (North, Central, and South) no longer are in the majority.

Thirty percent of all investment-grade securities now have negative yields. In other words, investors who acquire the debt and hodl to maturity are guaranteed to make a loss.

Why not just buy #Bitcoin and HODL?

https://twitter.com/bitcoin/status/1168311553134751744?s=21

Very easy answer.
A lot of inverstors simply cannot buy bitcoins, to many difficulties.
Technological (how to store them?)
Legal/Fiscal (how to pay taxes on them?)
Compliance (am I allowed to buy bitcoin? Is it within my management mandate?)
Regulatory pressure NOT to be involved in crypto’s
Reputational risk
Etc
Etc

This is why an integrated product like the one Bakkt wants to launch is so important from an institutional money adoption perspective.

Your many points are valid as I know many peoples they want to buy but have many problems you already mention and they cannot manage them to solve so they are going away from bitcoin.

Wow that is old considering the relation to the age of the tech, I wonder if there is still a majority of a user base.

Stamp chart is used for the bitmex price. (one of them) I saw a few times a huge manipulation on the bitstamp because it's easier to crash or pump the market and liquidate longs or shorts on the leverage exchange.
