To be honest, I missed a lot of things, of course there are regrets about missed opportunities, I just directed all my attention to bitcoin and did not regret it Smiley

I have read many posts of people saying they are sorry to have missed Bitcoin. But I wonder if they realise that there have been more than 20 trains out there that could have made them millionaires.

The problem is that it is very hard to predict which coin will moon and when. There are too many of them and most are pretty worthless. Another thing is that people often invest in the right time but sell to fast. I invested in ripple when it was worth 0.40, sold with 2x profit and then invested in it again when it was $2.5, so now I'm very much down with it. At the same time, I invested in Eth when it was worth $16 and then got robbed (lost 60% in ethereum-wallet.net) when it was $300 and sold the rest, because I didn't feel good about this coin anymore. I also had neo and sold when the price dropped.. I still hold iota bought for $0.75, because I really believe in the project's bright future.
We all make mistakes. It's hard to make things right out here.

Yes we missed all the train, not just bitcoins but all of them but make sure you are on board in the right train. Most of the investors are choosing the train of bitcoin because it has the highest value. But that doesnt mean that's permanent, every other coins may surpass bitcoin and take over its place. So, we really don't know what is the right train to choose. Choosing bitcoin is good because it is in place now.

Yes, it's true. Lot of people regret they didn't profit of bitcoin, but they don't look at the opportunities that there are now.
Of course, as it was with bitcoin, it very difficult to detect a winning coin BEFORE it wins!
You know, everyone could be millionaire, the day after....

The problem is that it is very hard to predict which coin will moon and when.

This. In the economy of the crypto market, the assurance of the coin rising up isn't really to be guaranteed as what I've previously mentioned in my previous reply. Most marks you could based on is the attention of media to the coin, maybe not on the local news but in the social news in the internet, but FUD will always ruin these ways of a showing good feedbacks. Even if  was a really naive person in cryptos, I wouldn't even invest in Bitcoin when I try to search for it because of all these FUDs fronting the news headlines.

Another thing is that people often invest in the right time but sell to fast.

This determines how difficult it is to win this worldwide crypto game either a trader or an investor. It is all about how one foresees the unpredictable movement or how active a trader it is to sell high. It is also really quite a downer how people believed in a coin for an assumed time of its run before getting included in the exchange but then dumps all of it after for profit and leaves it to drop or abandon it. It is what kills a market mostly when dumps are over than those who invests and lights the market up.

Many people missed bitcoin train when it suddenly keep on going up and at that time many alt coin also follow bitcoin to reach the peak, not many people predicted this phenomenal situation, but I believe there will be another event where crypto will go up in a high speed again, especially when there are a lot of people already aware of yhe crypto potential, there will be more investors in the future and with more investors there will be more chances crypto price going up

The thing is that as humans we really never can know the future. Even those who bought a few tens or hundreds of bitcoin in 2010 would've bought thousands or a lot more if they knew what bitcoin would become later. All that is now hindsight. The present is here but the future we don't know. Even now, many coins are highly underrated and we take them for granted until they begin to push up. We like to chase price just like the Chinese would chase the train when it finally dawns on them of what they missed banning bitcoin. OP, could you give us a peep into the future and list coins that will do well?

I have read many posts of people saying they are sorry to have missed Bitcoin. But I wonder if they realise that there have been more than 20 trains out there that could have made them millionaires.

They have managed to miss at least all these, some of them as recent as July last year. It is not that you missed Bitcoin, is that you (and I) just missed many many others Roll Eyes

Yes, those cryptocurrencies are way successful in their field but what matter to the newcomers is the popularity of bitcoin that they din not even bother on exploring other cryptocurrency. Like me, i haven't try to explore those altcoins because i am very enthusiastic in bitcoin investments and other way to earn it. I definitely missed the train in these altcoins but atleast i tried to learn what other way to earn.

Yes, it's really insulting, but if we are already interested in crypto-currencies and follow their development, then this is already good, and sooner or later we will have a chance to get rich.

If we all know when the train began we would all be rich but it is not possible for all of us to predict the market price at the same time and it will move in other direction. Bitcoin bullish momentum has began and I see this when bitcoin rebaunce around  $7,500 and $8,500 respectively. Bitcoin and others cryptocurrency has been doing well and we just need to wait a little and see what will become of it.

The market might be in low energy after all the hype. Of course, the trains usually arrive in October. So be ready, have the piggy savings ready by then. I seen many opportunities... like Bluzelle, powerledger, etc.

How is that insulting? People should just use their brains and common sense ability for once. OP can talk as much as he wants with this or that coin has increased 100000% in whatever number of years. People don't seem to understand that no one keeping an eye on the market will ever be able to experience these gains, unless they forgot about their coins and recently realized that they still have them. The majority of the people cash out their profits below the 100% profit margin, and then you have the rest cash out below the 200% margin, 300%, 400%, etc. In other words, 99.9% of the people will never be able to experience these gain. Stop dreaming and move on, there is nothing to see here.

Actually, it is not just bitcoin that can make people rich. If you are planning to get rich and you think that only bitcoin can so it, you are missing the whole picture. Some altcoins can even make you richer compared to the opportunity bitcoin can give.

We all make mistakes. It's hard to make things right out here.

To err is human, and to add insult to injury, people rarely make the same mistake once, it is twice or more times just to be sure. I can't agree that it was a bad decision to miss some of the trains because most of these trains went straight off the cliff in the end, and therefore we shouldn't in fact feel bad about missing them. It's always more entertaining to watch the train crash from outside than to look at the wreckage from inside.

I missed a lot of trains like many of you, and I regret it dearly. I recently got BEST ADVICE EVER about how to avoid that.
Simply - from all coins you mine, buy or recive in any way, if you want to sell it from any reason, sell only 90% of it,
 and that 10% leave and forget about it for at least 1 year. 10% - you wont feel it! There are a lot of emotions when your coin hits 1000% and its hard to stay straight,
 but if you leave only 10% you cant regret if it goes to 0! Same is in mining, you have to take some money to pay electric bils, and ofc you want to buy something nice from time to time, and you are making 100 ETH/day, and you end up selling all your ETH for 2$ each. If miners left only that 10% of ETH!!! there would be a lot more milionares in the world! I am using that formula for some time now on ALL COINS that i have, and im only planing to extend that "hodl" period on 2 years.

Well, we all suffer of some biases, and focus only on the things we are confortable with.
Altcoin may be are profitable, but they are too unpredictable to invest in them.
Most of the altcoins who are in the top spot did gain so much increase in their prices that's why bitcoin dominance almost fall to 30% which if I recall correctly bitcoin dominance last year ranges from 60 to 75% observe that if you're going for altcoins beside bitcoin, you gained so much from your initial investments, that's correct as some people are not knowledgeable in altcoins, they just knew bitcoin which is given by its popularity and potentials. We've missed a lot of rockets these days.

And there are going to be a lot of trains ahead.
It's not so smart to say " you missed the trains" after it happened.
You could also buy apple stocks at about 1.5$ and could have made about 50000% on a regular stock.
I believe that everybody misses chances, but we should be happy that we are going to have some chances ahead.
Also don't forget that the people who held those coins when they were so low, probably didn't wait and sold the coins after a profit of 100%/200% or even less.
It's almost impossible to hold coins for so long.

That's right. Since it's almost impossible for a rational mind to expect a 1084215% rise people start selling when they can have a 20%+ profit. And this is what happens to many crypto holders, especially if they are traders at the same time. So, those profits in the OP are rather hypothetical ones. Yes, all of us here "missed the trains", but who didn't? It's easy to say the right things post factum and it's hard to say right now, for example, which coin will the next +1,000,000 %.

Well, of course we missed a lot of trains, not only in crypto field.
But there are a lot of trains that we can catch now!
