It depends on the reason you are selling. If you're selling to invest in a more profitable asset, it's actually the opposite... The difficult task is to find something better to invest.

Many posts discuss the possibility of exchange earnings with selling Bitcoin (and buy later). Other posts discuss the Bitcoin exchange rate, it seems that many agree there is a strong upward tendency and the volatility is hard to predict. It seems dat selling Bitcoin results in a serious probability of an opportunity loss. Selling Bitcoin can only be motivated by an (partial) exit. Do you agree?
Here i am agree with the title of the thread but still herr i am not totally in the flavour of the topic because if we have time to trade with the bitcoin then why we should hold bitcoin .
The topic is true for those who don't have time , but here we have lots of time to trade with the bitcoin and other cryptocurrency ,so why not to multiply our btc .
If you will make trsde then surely you will increase the amount of the btc that you have and if you will hold and wait for the opportunity then surely btc will be in limited amount in your wallet and also you will needed to wait for long term to make better profit .
So it is more better to have some fraction of btc in Wallet and use rest of them to trade .

Yes i think that selling bitcoin is just like "burning money". You are just withdrawing or spending your bitcoin instead that you could have much more in a near future, i dont know why people still spend their bitcoins, i just prefer to hold them all until it reach a nice value.
By the way, i have a wallet with 0.10 so everytime i have an emergency or i just need to buy something inmediatly i use that wallet, but i dont like to spend it.


I agree with people saying that if you sold your bitcoins, you are losing the opportunity of its value to increase but this is on the assumption of the prices increasing everyday. By just looking at the charts, the price of bitcoins last week were around $3500 and right now it skyrocketed up to $4000. In just a matter of weeks, the opportunity of your bitcoins increasing were superbly affected and this results to a loss on your part if you withdrew it.

What you said is correct. The reason on why I earn bitcoins is for me to withdraw it when the need arises. For example, I ran out of fiat due to paying obligations and I need extra cash in order to pay something important, I will use my bitcoins and convert it for me to sustain myself and pay my existing debts. All of us here have their own reasons on why they earn bitcoins and I see no problem in converting it to fiat for something far important.

It depends on the situation that happening in the community. If the bitcoin's price is increasing, then it is an opportunity loss because by the time you sell it, you have given it the fixed rate by converting it to a local currency at a certain amount. Through that, your sold bitcoin will on that price even if the price still increasing after that. On the reverse, if you hold that in your, it still have the potential to increase its price, depends on how rate is changing timely.

This is somehow true. Those who panic before august 1 and sold their bitcoin, have lost their opportunity to profit from their saving. Before that I also have lost that chance by selling half of my bitcoins. I regret it. But what can I do. But half of bitcoins left in my wallet have profit also. So still thankful.
That is the effect of having not enough patience and lack of knowledge with that segwit .For those who keep and believe is the winner and have a free coin which a equals to a free money from bcc. I will only say that in bitcoins no matter what just keep holding and you will be rewarded for it than to trigger yourself in that Dump scenes.

Holding bitcoin is fun, I can attest. But if you hold too tightly, you may actually cost yourself a bit of opportunity.

Bitcoin will go up, generally. But sometimes its goes backward, for  apretty long time. If you remember the Great Slide after Gox folded, it went down, slowly, for an eternity. It didnt bounce right back either, it took a while to regain 1000, to where we are today. If you held during those times, you lost ALOT of opportunity. You could have purchased a real world asset with the money, achieved ROI for profit, and repurchased bitcoin, possibly cheaper than what you sold it for.

I say all that to say this; while bitcoin is a wonderful growth/safe haven asset, it is one of many. Look for profit from all spheres, not just crypto. You may miss an opportunity while sitting around 'hodling".  Wink

And to say in your favor, I would like to add here that no amount saved is too small or no amount sold is too big.
One can even hold until they die and decide to have those coins used by their children when they grow up, but that would cost a life and to tie ourselves with a bondage of not selling bitcoins could really cost us loss of time as well as money, because if you don't use the money when it's needed the most, then it's of no use in future even if it costs xx times than it used to be.
Yep! We should not be too much greedy with bitcoins. They are for us, we are not for them. Bitcoins have been created to make our lives easier and they are doing job perfectly. Bitcoins should be converted into fiat when you want to fulfill your needs.

Hard to say because it will depend on the situation that a person who has Bitcoin is into. If he needs the money for an instance and he'll earn profit from it, I think it is okay to sell it even if the price of Bitcoin is continuously rising. And besides, Bitcoin is still volatile. No one knows until when the price will increase 'coz deflation can take place during the inflation. The oppurtunity indeed is lost if you sold your Bitcoin but , you can still earn Bitcoin after selling it.

It depends on the reason you are selling. If you're selling to invest in a more profitable asset, it's actually the opposite... The difficult task is to find something better to invest.

I did this, I sold some of my bitcoins at $2,300 because I have something to buy and it's a real property assets. And I'll use it for making some good monthly income so it's not that an opportunity loss for me. But if you are not planning to invest into something then you can just hold your bitcoins and just see on how much it can grow.

By the way, i have a wallet with 0.10 so everytime i have an emergency or i just need to buy something inmediatly i use that wallet, but i dont like to spend it.

I think you are right but I cannot fully agree with you. We cannot be sure on how things would go in the future. What if its price suddenly crash? We can't tell. Although it is unlikely to happen, but it is possible. I would rather profit a few hundred from time to time. It is better not to be too much greedy because it might also be the reason for your loss.

Trading is a game of strategy - just because you sell your btc earlier it means that it is an opportunity loss.
you can't earn if you can't sell it. In selling just always make sure you still earn, don't get too greedy and always study the strategy in trading.
I just recently started in trading and I always check out the graphs of the btc that I will buy

That could only be an opportunity loss if you sell and you did not buy again, there are times that we really need to sell to make profit on it.
People who are investing in short term or those day traders are selling from time to time but they are making enough money on it because they have their skills that they can rely to be consistent in trading.
Well for me there is no such thing as an opportunity loss because every time you buy and sell Bitcoin you as a trader must set price points in which you target to buy or you target to sell. Having a target profit means you know what you want and you know what you will get. Even if the price of Bitcoin is greater than your target price you won't experience any loss because you are satisfied with what you have gained. Because we really don't know what the future prices are.

There is no opportunity loss, for me atleast. There is always a right time to sell and a right time to buy. If there is a price surge, take advantage of it and sell, because there is a great possibility that the price will diminish a little after, which will be a good time to buy again. Anyway, trading and holding both has its on advantages and disadvantages, so it depends on the person to choose how much risk he or she is willing to bear.

It depends on how a user thinks of selling their bitcoin. Sometimes they sell it because they need cash in real life, others sold too if they need to use it for various purposes and in some cases, they are on profit and believes that a dip will come in the way so they can purchase more.

Bitcoin will surely go up while on progress but remember that at some point it will experience price dip or big crash. Others just want to take advantage of this so selling is part of their strategy.
That's exactly what happens when I sell bitcoin. I need cash and despite me knowing that the prices would go up I have to sell them because I need cash so yes correct it depends on one's needs. If I don't feel the need to have some cash I won't sell. But it's not always so, sometimes I sell some of my bitcoins only to make profit and I agree I sell them as part of my strategy and that's when I can say for sure there's no opportunity lost by selling my bitcoins as I said already I sell them as part of my strategy and hence that's in my opinion the right time for me to sell.

Bitcoin is a safe and profitable investment, I do not see a big risk there. Every year BTC increments are very good, just need to prepare your mental to hold in an uncertain period of two years or 1 year.

bitcoin is a commodity for traders, if you could see a buy and sell signal opportunity of at least 25% gain then there is no reason to lose money however safeguarding your coin by dividing into 3 or half 'coz whenever there is an opportunity to ramp up the price again you have still coins to sell or try to diversify to other alt coins the other part of your btc to gain more profit.my best advise don't sell all your btc.

nope yeah selling bitcoin can be said to be a waste of opportunity, because of the potential for bigger bitcoin prices in the future than the current price, but I think it would be different story if you sell your bitcoin when the price goes up and have a goal to make a profit and then buy again after the price down, i think it does not waste the opportunity

Better wait for the right time to sell as we can never be profitable if we will not sell, with the recent price surge that means the
market are getting bigger and more people want to ride on board on bitcoin, and because of that we will be able to sell our bitcoin soon with a big profit.
However, you have to decide now when and on what price you will have to sell.

Actually selling Bitcoins is something you must do especially when you need it. You just lose it if the price rises. It's really in trading buy and sell. Buy it again when it crashes how it's gone and does not fall? Here's what you do to sell just enough btc to be needed. For the sake of the rise you have reserved.

Not really, Selling bitcoin doesn't mean that it is a loss opportunity. Buying bitcoins doesn't mean also that you are gaining opportunity. As we all know bitcoin's price is volatile which means we can equate this to the assurance of opportunity is also rising and falling. Therefore Selling bitcoin or buying bitcoin doesn't necessarily related with opportunity.

Many posts discuss the possibility of exchange earnings with selling Bitcoin (and buy later). Other posts discuss the Bitcoin exchange rate, it seems that many agree there is a strong upward tendency and the volatility is hard to predict. It seems dat selling Bitcoin results in a serious probability of an opportunity loss. Selling Bitcoin can only be motivated by an (partial) exit. Do you agree?
It depends on the situation that happening in the community. If the bitcoin's price is increasing, then it is an opportunity loss because by the time you sell it, you have given it the fixed rate by converting it to a local currency at a certain amount. Through that, your sold bitcoin will on that price even if the price still increasing after that. On the reverse, if you hold that in your, it still have the potential to increase its price, depends on how rate is changing timely.
Definitely all depends on the values of bitcoins. If they are continuously increasing, then cashing them out without further wait can put you in loss.
Personally I believe that selling bitcoins even in the dumping phase is a big loss. Bitcoins should be treated as an asset rather than a currency.

To me selling my coins would be really the last solution. I would have to be in desperate need of money to make such a move.
You can read a lot of posts here from the early bitcoin users who sold bitcoins for a few dollars just a few years ago.
We can only learn from that.
Nobody of us wants to be in the position to have to look back and recognize that you missed the opportunity of your life although you already had it in your hands.

It depends on the reason you are selling. If you're selling to invest in a more profitable asset, it's actually the opposite... The difficult task is to find something better to invest.
Bitcoin is a safe and profitable investment, I do not see a big risk there. Every year BTC increments are very good, just need to prepare your mental to hold in an uncertain period of two years or 1 year.
Are you sure? I remember in four years ago, in 2013 - 2014 the price of Bitcoin has breakdown bubble growth and falldown -1000% with the highest price. So for me, don't have type investment is safest, always have the risk when investment.

You are assuming that the price will continue to rise. That is not guaranteed, so selling is not necessarily lost opportunity.

Selling may be the way to maximize your return, but it depends on the risk of holding.

I always like to look at past comments people make. I think that if you are selling right now, you are indeed making the same mistake the Bitcoin Pizza person made by spending so much on that pizza.

Eventually that pizza will be worth hundreds of millions that he spent for it.

Right now highest is 4,500 USD, we would not have thought it possible 3 months ago, but here we are.

And in a few years from now I will look back at this post and say, there is where it was 4,500USD and now it is 20,000 USD.
