You've lost $103.25 but I think it is unavoidable because maybe the user is panicking or maybe has another big reason.But I don't think you need to sell that bitcoin with such price, $103.25 is also a good profit price if you've ask me. And the lost money will be a benefit into the bitcoins buyer not the society.
It’s completely avoidable. All you need to do is wait until the price rises to at least your buying price before you end up selling it. At that point you can, at the very least, break even.

Actually I could not understand any significant importance of selling in losses. I just want to ask what is happening when we will be selling higher than buying prices in the system. Literally these are just profits/losses to individual traders but insignificant to the system.

Well it leaves me to conclude that the one who will do this is a panic seller and so it serves him right not t have waited for the right time. This forum has been very educative in terms of Bitcoin growth and pricin abdcso I thought panic selling should be a thing of the past but if you're still a member andvuou get persuaded by some theories and you sell for less then it's your own cup of tea.

I don't know why their answers were somehow wrong to me, you were right about being close with breaking even, buy somehow you still lose a 103 USD, but the person who brought you the bitcoin has spend the same as you did, but its still not a breakeven situation you are still loses, no one wins but still you lose that's how it works, they don't get anything from you except the fee as you have said but you still lose something, more or less you might regret every decisions that you have made but there is another opportunity I suppose.

Nothing.
Cause what you're picturing here is not possible.

You can't sell to somebody at a higher price than people are buying.
When you sell somebody is buying, the price is the same for both the seller and the buyer.

If you sell something that is lower than how much you bought it, it is a lost from your side.  Any kind of reasoning is either sweet lemoning or sourgraping that make you feel better. But the matter of fact you just did a bad trades and suffer a 103 USD lost and there is no words can change that fact.

It just doesn't make sense unless maybe he was afraid the prices will decrease further and then rushed into selling it and that's what you call panic selling.

He/Shr will only gain losses in profit ,It is not buy high sell low its like trading so it should be buy low and sell high in that scene when a bitcoin holder sees a big dump in price and worried about if bitcoin will continue to drop he will be a panic seller .

I think it is a mistake that does not need to be done. I have not wondered if anyone did that. Of course if anyone did that, of course he would get a loss. I think a mature calculation should be done in making any decision. By buying a higher price then selling at a lower price, it is a panic. I think we'd better hold the bitcoin we have, while waiting for higher prices. Joining in bitcoin means we have a goal for us to make a profit. Try doing the transaction with great care.

I don't know where you learnt maths since (2296.25-2093=$203.25) and not $103.25.
Coming to the point,the loss of $203 due to difference between the cost prrice and selling price has to be bared by you since you are deliberately selling at that price.If the price rises to $2296 from $2093 once again,then $203 is earned as benefit by him.So,it would be better for you to remain patient and then sell when BTC price goes much higher than your purchased price so that you get huge profits.

It's an interesting point to compare bitcoin with thermodinamics.
Unfortunatelly bitcoin is economy and I do not think that in those two fields rule the same principals.
And how the double spending problem should infect all of this is not really clear to me.
I would say lets keep it simple:
If you sell something at a lower price than you bought it, the difference between thos two is your loss.

Still too early to think that Bitcoin could cause deflation to the USD mate, I think you have confused BTC/altcoin pairs trading, while Bitcoin is on the rise

Altcoins value based on dollar doesn't change unless there are pumps occurring, there are some markets unable to adjust themselves or better put it this

Way, there are traders lacking the ability and skillsets to update their prices, mainly the ones doing trades without the help of any bot. when you buy high

And sell low, you are being manipulated by others, that's called stupidity. having weak hands is the main reason, people panic since it's the matter of their

Wealth, everyone is the same, only those with patience and experienced with how crypto works win eventually.

haha i Don't think you've got it, that was just a hypothetical question in the moment. Not any sort of a strategy or anything like that. He just asked what will happen is someone sold the bitcoin for lower than he bought it for due to price going down.

That's the correct interpretation, right?
If you are selling at a loss you are the only one losing your money and someone gets the opportunity to grab the coin at that particular price,if you think that you are serving the society by selling at a loss then it is your call  Tongue . Do not get complicated with simple things,just think in simple terms and never sell at a loss even if you want to serve society. Tongue

Haha, you have a straightforward answer there. But honestly, money loss or profit loss or income loss and etc. when you sell at the price lower than the price you have bought it will certainly leads to the mentioned things. As far as I know, it is a golden rule here in trading to always buy coins or bitcoin at a low price and sell at a high price, this will ensure profit from trading and is of course, the wisest mindset in making money here.

The answer is simple, if you sell for less money than you have bought you suffer the loss of your money. But when you ask such question maybe you are not familiar with first and basic rule for trading, so to buy low and sell high. In that case Bitcoin maybe isn't for you and it's better that you do something else.

If you sell at a lower price, you can only lose money. It is better to wait for the price to rise and then sell to make a profit which will result from a high price increase.
