This should be interesting.

"Bitcoin had been transformed from an anarachistic challenge to the financial status quo, to the crypto spawn of Satan, fuelled by cut-throat greed and delusions of avarice." - MatTheCat

It is still a difference whether you actually invested 80% of your worth into bitcoin or you just adopted early and the value outgrew you. :-)

 No, as far as bitcoin is almost freely convertible exchange, there are no such difference. Let's say early adopters win the lottery, they got the prize and now they have some more money.Those money just stored in Bitcoins.

Negative 50%. I too have student loans, and thus my net worth is negative.

If your goal is to get even spaced categories, your poll should be logarithmic.  I'm at about 0.03%

I think a better measure would be: How much $$ do you have invested into BTC?

because one man's 100% net worth is another man's 100$

FREE 100 GME if you post your Cryptsy TradeKey on the official GameCoinTalk forums

I think this should be changed to
How much of your ASSETS is stored in Bitcoins?

I guess it depends on whether you consider these equivalent:
a) The decision to invest 80% into bitcoin
b)The decision not to cash out and rebalance when you suddenly find 80% of your networth exists as bitcoin

If your fiat money was earned through years of hard work, whereas your bitcoin wealth was much more of a 'windfall' - then most people will have a different psychological reaction as to how they treat it.

I guess if someone was truly rational about it - then they'd look at how much hard work it would actually take to earn that wealth which is now in bitcoin - and rebalance accordingly.

I agree, I like total $$$ better than % of net worth.  Personally, I'm just being honest, I have a lot of bitcoins but also a lot of net worth.  I think the poll probably wants to get at how much $$$ I've put in to Bitcoin.

100% can be very varying absolute numbers... I would be far more interested in "How many Bitcoins do you have?"

I went with 10-20%, though it's more like 15%. Also have about 10% in precious metals. Maybe 15% in USD. Not discussing the remainder. Cheesy
