I am sure a lot of us are serious investors with a diversified profile. How much of your investment capital is locked into bitcoins? I am just getting back into the market after a few months but I plan to invest 10-20% of my available funds in bitcoins. Very volatile market but I find it a safer investment than most that I dip into.

Are you joking? The only thing that carries higher risk than Bitcoins is buying Italian government bonds.

Granted, I haven't been watching prices long, but it SEEMS that Bitcoins aren't any riskier than normal stock. Maybe they'll go back up to $20 each, maybe they'll drop down to $0.01 per BTC, but regular stock carries the same sort of risk.

Be nice if it was more stable, true, but I don't think it's much riskier than any other sort of investment. Just keep your computer safe from being hacked.

Normal stock can go down because dumb CEO decided to do something dumb.

ya, like Netflix. Except with an investment in Netflix you get to write off your losses.

Aren't stocks less volatile? I mean, last week Bitcoin price dropped 20% in one day.

Not really. It happens. A lot of stocks are relatively stable (Walmart, IBM, Apple; I think), but the majority can trade pretty wildly, depending on number of shares and whether the brokers had salmon or chicken for lunch. That's how day traders make tons of money.

Risk is what makes people rich. Well, that and lobbyists.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

That's not fair.  Bitcoin is probably as risky as Greek government bonds, or maybe a Zimbabwean FOREX.

Normal stocks don't fluctuate between $20 and one cent (bitcoin does).  Everything in this post is wrong.

Aren't stocks less volatile? I mean, last week Bitcoin price dropped 20% in one day.

With the possible exception of penny stocks, which are the stock market equivalent of roulette, Stocks generally tend to be stable.  Why?  Because they have things like the SEC, which makes sure that companies are reporting their earnings properly, aren't running off with shareholder's money *ahem*mybitcoin*ahem* or things of that nature.

Bitcoin dropped 20% in one day because pictures of Bill Cosby showed up on this forum, while 'normally' the price fluctuates by %30 every day.  Magic: The Gathering Online Exchange was hacked and bitcoin crashed to one cent, all they did was call a do-over and reset everything the next day.

Do you know what it's like to be built this way?

I'm not convinced, I'm only putting a small % of my money in bit coins.

In my view their a very high risk investment, no stocks bounce up and down (on a daily basis) like bitcoins.

Financially, zero.  Timewise, I've done quite a bit of research.

Here in Italy stocks can't fluctuate that much because there is a protection system that avoid any fluctaution over the 10% (both in high or in low) in a day halting the trade on that stock if that's occours. A lot of times there are stocks that can loose over 7-10% in a day, and are not penny stock but stocks in the mib20 (the top 20 stocks of the italian market).

But you're true that bitcoin is a lot more weak system: is really easy for speculator move the price up or down.
