I mean, what is you investment budget (in dollars) for this month/year?
 So what it depends on?

Maybe $250, and up to $500 if things look bright.

Couple of percent of my similar investment vehicles.  Really depends on how the legislation (outlawing it) is implemented in the different countries.

Either too much or not enough is what remains to be seen.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Just a little wisdom... what you're doing now is day trading NOT investing.  Investing is putting money away for years.  Trading is betting (gambling) on prices of something to rise in your favor in a set time.  Just make the distinction and don't play the market with more than you're willing to lose  Grin

As a daytrader for 12 months (until I realized the only one making money at it was my broker, TradeStation) I would agree with you completely. Buying and selling Bitcoin is pure gambling/speculation.

If this post tickles your fancy or helped you make more bitcoin I'll gladly take a tip:

Great thread, I think people can get a bit excited about the idea that bitcoin is some new currency that nobody knows about, and that simply getting in early will gurantee a profit of some sort. Investing/trading has all the pitfalls of any other type of currency.

Personally my interest is mining, but it's hard to say what kind of investment i have made. I recently brought a 5850 for AU$169 so I guess you could say that is the amount invested Smiley However it's a bit convoluted because I don't have a dedicated mining rig and I also use the card for gaming. I suppose the extra wattage draw while mining is also part of the "investment".

I don't see bitcoins as an investment. They are a tool for me to easily pay for things online, particularly with donations.

So far, I've put £30 into Youtipit and I am awaiting more people to post things there that I feel are worthy of donations.

The amount I plan to spend is directly related to what I can buy with or donate to using bitcoins and how much I can afford.

I day trade with my mined coins. I bought about 24BTC when it was around 24$/BTC so I've gotta wait it out. Or make up what I've lost via trading and then sell them.
