I'll start off with some of my biggest regrets, and the one which I am most upset about is selling my Bitcoin early. I was one of the people who were able to get into Bitcoin around the price of $400-600, and at that time I even owned a couple of Bitcoins. I saw some profits and I sold off all of my Bitcoin, I was too scared to expose myself to the risk of being involved in Bitcoin and I got out. I would've loved to have a couple thousand dollars laying around, but that's me.

Also, gambling. I gambled a good amount with the bitcoins that I had at the $400-600 mark, if I would have that back now it'd be worth a fortune.

Anyone here have any regrets?

Yeah, well. If I had invested more before the August hard fork I'd probably have a lot more money lol. I had gambled bitcoin previously like you as well. I had forgotten about them. Years later down the road I remembered them. They are now worth a couple hundred bucks so that is nice. Back in the older days I tried to learn about bitcoin, but I was turned off by the fact that there wasn't anywhere to sell your bitcoins. There were websites everywhere for buying, but no sites up for selling. I then dismissed it as a Ponzi scheme. That was probably back in 2015 or so. Either way, it is worth a lot more now so I guess I slightly regret it. If I was to rewind back to that time without knowing what I know now I would have came to the same conclusion.

Bitcoin was shady as hell back then. It still is today, but just not as much. Cheesy

Friends, the past things do not think too much. Maybe it's good to buy now.
Luckily, you bought bitcoin a few years ago. That means you still have a good eye for investment. I wish you success again!

i guess like most of the people the biggest regret is to not have invested money in it.
Nobody can see the future, the practical side of me though it was just a nice (and useless) experiment, combined with the fact i wasn't at home but abroad without a pc i didn't have a chance to invest time in BTC.
don't want to cry over a spilled milk but most of us it went like this.

When I stopped GPU mining back in 2014 (anyone remember middlecoin?) , I stopped because it was the summer and I didn't want to pay for electric to heat and then cool my house.  Litecoin was easy to mine still, that summer I could have mined the equivalent today of over $60,000 in litecoin.  *sigh*

Even worse, I had the opportunity to buy 10,000 litecoin for only $245 back in 2013.  Man, that would have been a great gamble!

My biggest regret is when 2015 i did not believe in bitcoin becuase the price is so small  i regret becuase when i see the value of bitcoin now is so much increase but regreting gives me a opportunity to use this more confidently.

Everybody's regret with bitcoin is not having buying enough when they could afford it. If we all look behind and see the price increasing we'll see lots of entry points we could have joined and hodled. I always cry when I remember I could have bought 10 bitcoins for 500 usd 5 years ago but I did not believe it could possibly one day gets to 6k USD. Lessons learned, now I invested on BTC and I hope that one day it gets to 50k USD and I can remember 2012 like a bad experience which lead me to a good profit!

Not being active enough. I am a grade ten student and I find hard time to inspire myself in doing bitcoin. Now I am regretting it. I missed the big change of prices.
I am enjoying my life as a teen but I think doing this may be worth it. It's just hard fo r me. Many activities and I am more on Facebook. I want to be active starting today.

Yes bitcoin is more worthy than just surfing on facebook.Learn to love bitcoin more than anything except from focusing on your studies.I myself has my biggest regret too the moment i heard bitcoin the first time before and i never give any chance to bitcoin.I never even attempt to search about bitcoin,i was always a facebook lover.But now i realized it was the biggest mistake i've made.If only i could turn back the time,maybe by now i am already a very progressive individual,a millionaire in our community.

When I first learned about it I dismissed it and then around 2 years later I got into it but didn't heavily invest in it. I would literally be worth millions today if I did....

Even I bought and earned bitcoin more than 10 but I have sold all the bitcoins via localbitcoins whenever I need. Now I am really worry about the bitcoin price and feeling that why I have sold the bitcoins which I have.
If I have the same bitcoins now, I could start any business with the same fund. I lost bitcoin hacked once I was using the blockchain wallet bro.

My regret is, why only now I am interested in Bitcoin, why yesterday just watch it. If I had merged from scratch, perhaps my knowledge of Bitcoin would have been better, so my performance in the Bitcoin industry would be maximal again.

Back in 2012 I think when the price was still not that high I had 10 btc and I sold it for like $20 at that time because I felt that it might not end well and will fluctuate. Now I am regretting it big time. Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

I think everyone in the community would agree to that the biggest regret is not holding to your coins early. It is one thing I regret. I mean I knew about it all but I think was too scared to stay with it. I am talking about 2011.

Actually, I do not have a biggest regret. But if I had one, it would be not knowing bitcoin 5 years ago. If I knew it back then, I would be rich by now. So, I think that is my biggest regret. Added to that, I have small regrets based on spending my bitcoins or converting them into fiat.

The reason was that I had been in need of money. That is why I have to start saving bitcoin because I am sure its price will go up in a matter of time.

I think my biggest regret about bitcoin is that I started to know bitcoin last month only because I know bitcoin around a year ago by I completely ignored it. Why now only? If I only started to know about bitcoin a year ago, I know I have already earned a decent amount of bitcoin but I started earning only last month.

My biggest regret is trusting some exchanges like Cryptsy and Mintpal.

Those are my only losses - coins stolen by exchanges, and I still think the exchanges are bitcoin's greatest point of vulnerability. Apart from that I have no regrets!
