How?
Use bitcoins to buy a mining operation --> earn more bitcoins?

Except that mining is not profitable in most cases. People unable to do math keep buying mining rigs, which sustains the difficulty rise. Mining may start to edge back into profitability soon, but right now it's not a good investment, especially with most mining hardware producers having very vague shipping date estimates.

As for current stable bitcoin investments... there aren't that many. It's hard to outperform the current BTC/USD growth considering that many businesses have some exposure to fiat currency. One decent place to park your coins is as an investment into the bankroll of just-dice.com, where you profit from gamblers losing (and vice versa). There's no exposure to fiat currencies and the investment is very liquid (at worst a withdrawals has to come from the cold wallet, which has to be done manually and can take a day).

stable?  heh heh, bitcoin?  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

Bitcoin is already one of the riskiest investments out there (commensurate with its potential for reward). Investing in bitcoin-related ventures is basically doubling down on that risk.

Btc is deflationary, so why would you need to earn a nominal return?

Create value, make btc...

You can't find a stable bitcoin investment, that is just not possible.

Talking about investing Bitcoins, where the return is in BTC is interesting and I have put thought into it.


I am actually offering a high risk, high gain investment in one of my service threads that pays in BTC:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345782.0

As can be seen, I show proof of being a winning player (extremely high winrate, but small sample size, true winrate is smaller than appears).

I offer various different levels of investment, ranging from 0.02BTC all the way to 0.5BTC.  Most likely will stop offering investments under 0.04BTC once I get enough investors to give me some credibility (once good results come out, hopefully leading to bigger clients).

I have yet to have anyone invest. 



If someone here thinks it might be a scam, my other thread on another service (he paid 0.03BTC) has already had a very happy client:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=341747.0

In traditional currencies, it's pretty easy for even a financially clueless person to invest and get a modest nominal return. Can we ever expect to see these types of stable investments in Bitcoin or is that unlikely because of its deflationary nature? How does one put their bitcoins to work earning more bitcoins?

The fact that it's deflationary means that even holding bitcoins and doing absolutely nothing with them would (theoretically at least) earn you money.

I'd suggest using BTC to invest in undervalued altcoins.

I attempt to make a case for this strategy in the video (vvvv) linked in my signature below.  Cheesy
