I wanted to start a poll to see how long you will wait before you consider to buy bitcoins?

I buy them at a variety of prices all day long. I just make sure to sell them quickly.

Buy a bunch then.  Let us know how many you buy and for what price so we can see exactly how much value you lose over the next several days/weeks/months.

Things may not be that bad, what goes down will come up and vice versa.   The huge decrease may be due to the market digesting the $30 a coin bubble, who knows it will be up soon?

please tell me you are joking. please.

fucking a man, cashing out a 401k for bitcoins? that's crazy.

get a good tradebot or (slightly more risky) open up accounts at a couple exchanges, and take advantage of arbitrage, check http://nyse-group.de/bitcoin-arbitrage for opportunities.

doing one or both, you should be able to recoup some of your losses..




bitcoins are a gamble.....never gamble what you cant afford to lose.

bitcoins are not gambling . bitcoins are a currency, just like USD, EUR. i've been converting my income to BTC then buying food with it to support the bitcoin economy but i don't know how much longer i can keep this up

they certainly are a gamble, at least until some assemblence of price stability happens (which is why you are holding that bag of $30 btc).

but hey, i gave you good advice on how to recoup some of your losses...its up to you whether you choose to take it

Don't do this. Instead, deposit part of the money at an exchange and buy coins only when you need to spend them. The process is instantaneous so there is no need for you to hold bitcoins for more than a few minutes. I also try to shop with bitcoins when I can, but I never hold on to them (except for the money I set aside for speculation).

how much would you reocmmend for speculation i lost a lot in mybitcoin so i dont really like to keep any in wallet or exchanges because centralisation of a decentralised currency doesn't seem like the best idea

The golden rule of gambling is to only gamble what you can afford to lose. You were greedy and you lost. No sympathy from me.

Im considering just cashing out everything for $14k and leaving it at that, taking a loss on the rest

But it could always go up... in between a rrock and hard place atm.. cash out or hold until it rises back to 30..

you know how stock marktet is.... rule is buy low sell high.. why not buy at 1,5€ and wait for it to go up ... ?
