Hello,
A currency is used to store value, spend, but also invest in projects.
What are the possible investments with BTC, in the current state of the world ?

Here's what comes in my mind :
- HYIPs (Ponzis - I don't want to scam anyone, neither get scammed)
- Investing in marketing to promote a referral program
- Taking shares in a mining pool
- Lending to a fellow bitcointalker
- Taking shares in the working capital of a betting site (funding the bank)

I would love to have a diverse pool of assets. Any experience with those ?

Thanks.

Thank you, I'm more a passive investor than a trader, though.

In your link, there's something interesting about carry trade : the broker pays an daily interest rate when you are short BTC/long USD (and you have to pay it if you are long BTC/short USD). This could be interesting to keep in mind in order to hedge a bubble... But I need to do much more research on them before Smiley

Thanks for the idea.

If you want more income, I suggest make space for people pay for your signature. Better than ref link

Thanks, I'm new to this signature thing but I'll take the opportunity once I'm eligible to some programs.
Morally, I prefer advertising to sites I love, hence referrals Smiley

- Taking shares in a mining pool
Not likely to get positive return.

- Lending to a fellow bitcointalker
Highly risky if there's no proper collateral.

- Taking shares in the working capital of a betting site (funding the bank)
Highly risky. You have to trust the operator will never steal or just run with all the funds.

Conclusion:
The only valid way now is starting your own business with BTC, or just put it in cold storage.

Sorry to hear that. I think mining will never break even in itself and the only way to earn BTC there is buy low and sell high, which is highly risky. I suggest you just put your BTC in cold storage instead.

Definitively not cex mining, but with cheap miner it is possible, sometimes you can find someone selling for good price, but rarery
