Now you can make a lot of money selling bitcoins, but buying them now is very expensive anyway, you can pay off even more.
Selling your bitcoin doesn’t mean opportunity loss, though it’s always good to at least save some of them. And if you’re buying, always know that no amount purchased is too low, even if you purchased half of a bitcoin, it’s still a good investment cause the will surely grow.

If we go for analyzing only the long-term holder is are making use of the good returns, bitcoin is providing. So, we must try to hold bitcoin without selling them for whatever reasons. We can save and holding bitcoin which must be ensuring great opportunity in coming years.

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

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.

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?

Well, I do not think that selling Bitcoin is a hundred percent opportunity loss. Why, in the first place, did that someone sold his/her Bitcoin? To gain the profit right? And by gaining the profit would mean that he/she is harvesting the fruits of the opportunity he/she grabbed certain time ago. So I believe that it is not an opportunity loss, but rather a point of touching the profit you earned.
Yeah, if you say selling your Bitcoin before the price of it increasing up, it just is a regret unreasonable, because the price you decision for sell your Bitcoin is your hope, your target and you feeling satisfied with this price.

maybe those who sell btc before the split were regretting now for the decision they made since btc value were increasing fast. I do regret converting my btc onto our fiat.

It seems funny now. Bitcoin price being dumping down today, value again falling down. This doesn't have sign to see the bitcoin price up. Anytime selling bitcoin is not opinion. If you hold the bitcoin for some months then bitcoin will touch to 5000$.

It's not even possible to predict until when it will continue on rising, so it's not even an opportunity loss when you sell your bitcoin. I think in crypto currency trading there's no such thing as opportunity loss in the real sense because trading takes risks. And, cryptocurrencies are volatile so there's no concrete basis when to buy and sell. People are selling coins to maximize the profit that they can come out with.

Of course there is some profit in trading bitcoin against fiat or other crypto currencies.
But you have to know what you are doing. There is always the chance you actually sell at a low and have to buy back at a higher point.
And then there is the thing with the taxes that makes everything more complicated. At least if you want to play it by the book.
I have decided to simply keep my coins. That gives me less headache.

to me i think it is too much important to know about the right time and get the right decision on right time. in fact everyone invest money to make some more money but is depending on his experience and the investment, but as most of the people do not recognize the right time therefore they lose money.

Selling bitcoin is truly similar to a huge opportunity loss at this moment. Bitcoin market cap has hit the all time high numbers and positivity around it is running high. The price may not fall soon as it is showing a very strong upside trend.

If you are an investor, then try to purchase bitcoin from your salary income after certain interval. Let say weekly. If you have 100 USd to invest in bitcoin, make it 4 purchases of 25 USD each. This way you will be able to average out the buying price. This system is known as SIP and works well for long term investment.

I can agree since i believe bitcoin have lots of potential and bright future. But, sell bitcoin might be great idea for those who think bitcoin problem can't be resolved or the price can't grow much anymore.
So, it depends on what people believe.
If you totally believe and trust Bitcoin system it is true for you that if you sell Bitcoin the only thing you do is wasting an opportunity to earn more or to have a more profit. As we can see at this very moment Bitcoin development and growth to its price is happening and there is a lot of this possibility in the future so if we are going to hold or decide to make a partial investment vwe could actually earn more out of Bitcoin in the near future.

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

in my opinion you should sell and buy bitcoin and bitcoin is pumping and dumping by a good amount ,and if you have experience the you can earn good amount while playing buying and selling.even if you want to hold to it then also i would suggest you to invest in some other tokens or altcoin as bitcoin pump hype will be over soon and the price will decrease little.

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.

Selling Bitcoin is only an opportunity loss if you do not buy it back shortly afterward... (shortly, given that the price is so volatile).

I think it is not recommended to sell bitcoins as of now. There is a lot of changes since the fork in early august. Since then, the price becomes almost 1.5x before the fork has started. We should wait until the end of the month before selling again. Should have more knowledge in trading before taking risk.

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.

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.
