I think this is best time for investing money in bitcoin because the price of bitcoin will rise very soon. So, they'll get a huge opportunity to make huge amount of profit out it of through selling when the price of bitcoin will again rise up.

Because they believe it will be good investment for them. Let's look at dude who bough in at 20k and now he is buying at 10k, so basically what he is doing behind the scenes is droping his average bought value per 1BTC with more he/she acquires over the dip. They haven't lost their money until the point they exchange their Bitcoins for another cryptocurrency or fiat currency, as long as they have btc, 1btc=1btc but the value of that bitcoin drops now. So they invest because they think it is good investment and that it was good deal at 20k and also even better deal at 7k or whatever the price can/could be within few months. The fact is that you have less of those people as many of them are driven heavily on their emotions while trading which is not good.

For the exchange market this is very common thing. Some people are losing their business because they are not at all aware. When price is dull they could do wait. As in leading line and for the popularity people are not leaving crypto.

This is 8th time OP asked weird/ridiculous question on this week, but there are some possibilities such as :
1. The investors don't want to cash out with losses, since you haven't made profit/losses before investor exchange their bitcoin.
2. They're long-term investor who believe the potential of bitcoin (or believe bitcoin price will rise again).
3. They don't care about Bitcoin price/losses (minority Bitcoiner think this way)

3. They don't care about Bitcoin price/losses (minority Bitcoiner think this way)

Number two is the number one reason why investors keep investing in bitcoin no matter the outcome of their investment. The reason is because they have seen a few people make money with bitcoin and they want to emulate and achieve the same result as them.

Another reason backing the above one is that they maybe traders who believe in making a fortune while trading bitcoin to altcoins and they need to invest in bitcoin in order to have it and then to exchange to different altcoins.

8th times?! Thats weird Huh Probably he is the 'investor' who bought the BTC at $20k and calculating his loss made him ask numerous times (just an assumption though)

To OP, if investors who bought BTC at $20k knew that bitcoin won't pass that price last December, some of them won't have gotten it. Last year, with the way the price of bitcoin was climbing, many people rushed into it to make quick money but alas for them, the price dropped. Moreover, they didn't 'loose' their money cause BTC will still pump. Crypto investment needs patience.

The fact is that you have less of those people as many of them are driven heavily on their emotions while trading which is not good.

Most of those who bought arround price of $20,000 have already sold their coins. Probably they sold their coins with small loss, and are now back in the game looking to restore money they lost. You are totally right about what you said, and yes there are those who kept holding even after huge price drop. What you said is maybe best approach that those people could take. Selling now would be insane for them, but I have not made decision to invest huge money like them so its only my opinion.
Its good that people have not lost their faith in crypto, because it would be sad to see everything go away.

Well bitcoin is not like ponzi scheme that has a fixed promise amount and in bitcoin no body can tell you what the price will be in the next minutes or hours or days because the bitcoin price is very volatile and at that there is no fixed or stable price so if you buy bitcoin when the price is $1000 and now the price is $7000 you stand to gain and again if you bought bitcoin when the price is $20000 and now the price is $7000 you see how much you have loss. But the advice is to hodl which is the only means to ex cape losses.

All currency and bitcoin will grow in the future. Weak investors sell at a loss, and strong investors hold until better times. Who do you belong to?

Why are you so sure that price of crypto will grow in the future? I believe that it could go both ways.
There are cases when holding is wrong way to go, in situations like that bailing out is smart thing to do, but everything depends on the situation. It is hard to distinguish when its time for bailing and when its time for holding. But you are right, most people act based on their emotions and sell when its time for holding and other way around. Things are not just black and white, there are gray areas also.  Wink

I thought that most of traders sold bitcoins when it was 20000$. If they invested they will just wait.
Technically yes - they are losing it now. But if they haven't necessity to sell it they can simply wait.

Though those investors lost the value of bitcoin but they still have the same amount. As long as you have the same amount of bitcoin you will still have a chance of earning when the price recovers in a span of time. If they are risking their money at 20k $ per bitcoin then  much more they will buy bitcoins at 9200$ which is more cheaper.

See, you need to be realistic with your goals. Bitcoins will again touch the $20000 mark but if you think that this will happen in just few days, you will be disappointed. Gradual increase is good as it means it is without any manipulation.

It is a long term investment.
When you buy BTC don't expect to make an instant profit, you have to hold it for months or even years.
It is also a risky field, you may win as you may loose. I don't think that if someone bought at 20k would sell at the current price.

I also invested in bitcoin and bought when bitcoin prices reached $ 20,000, but it's true that I was never afraid to do it again and I also bought it for $ 7,000 again yesterday, because I know bitcoin prices will rise.

It’s because they see the potential of bitcoin. Even if people see that going down of the value of bitcoin is negative, investors see it as a potential. Because if the bitcoin value suddenly goes up, then they are lucky enoughh. It’s all about having the right perspective. Those who still belive in bitcoin even when price goes down, believes in the future potential of bitcoin.

Because bitcoin always have a way to change the bad status of it to recover its reputation, also investors know when to invest in bitcoin that could give them a good return from their trust, some are risk taker but wise, they are wise because they choose to invest in bitcoin, and thus bitcoin's community grows consistently and gain more popularity.

Because they understand how investments work. Those who bought at $20,000 still hasn’t lost until they decide sell it. They can opt to wait until the value goes back to its previous record which is expected before the end of the year.
