To all the newcomers.

You will be successful bitcoin investor if you stick with these simple rules


- Never spend more than you afford to lose. It may kill you. This is the main rule.

- Never treat bitcoin as get rich quick scheme. Get ready to wait at least a year before you see gains.

- Never wait for price drops, buy at ATH and be happy when it doubles/triples in a year.

- Don't speculate during "All time highs", it will bite you.

- Don't panic. Never sell with losses, even when you see it's dropping 50% of its value in a minute. As history teaches, it's just another bear trap.


Abiding these rules will help you being happy and benefit bitcoin economy.

First is standard, and I agree with the first half of the second point, but I've made 8 times my money in less than three months. People could still get rich in the same amount of time now, but then I'd refer back to your first point.

Don't you remember April 2013 ?
I know many people who spent everything at over $200, and after "crash" they dumped it at half price.

This advice would save me some BTC in 85% cases, but those 15% largely make up for that in my case. Not big losses though.

Bought at X

X-10
X-15
Oh shi-i-i-i...
Sell at X -20
X-50
X-200

I so fucking wish I had a house, or anything to throw in something Smiley

I so fucking wish I'd threw $$ in Google stocks, as I was 100% sure they would skyrocket, but i had no $$ at that time.

Just keep in mind the last rule. I'll help you to avoid many bear traps that will happen soon.

I wasn't watching the markets in April. BTC was only a blip in my radar then.
