Do you guys still think this is a non-issue?
I do, as long as all the big holders are responsible about the way they cash out. Life isn't fair - early adopters in almost every aspect get unfair benefits. Is it fair that the first people to rush westward in the USA got "free land" for nothing?
Having said that, it's becoming increasingly apparent to me that the "fuck you, I got mine" mentality is going to keep causing periodic price turbulence until all the early adopters have cashed out completely, the funds being redistributed to people who have a reasonable investment in them. This problem being compounded by the massive deflation we're due for if the currency actually takes off worldwide on any measurable scale (because if it goes from $15 to $1500 in ten years, there's no difference between someone who's sitting on 100,000 BTC today, and someone sitting on 1000BTC in ten years).
Hopefully the markets improve by virtue of more people participating, and it's able to bear these completely fucktarded sell-offs, but I really don't know what's going to happen in the future.
TL;DR: Bitcoin is what it is - you know the rules going into it, and if you didn't and you bought in anyway, well...
