Didnt wire any money, but bought small amount of goxbtc on builder, knew the risks. Just like betting on the underdog just because the odds are worth it, not surprised at the result, because underdogs usually do not win.

I know one person who spent $500 on those Gox coins.

Hell, I'll be honest though, if the price dropped to $10, I probably would've tried buying some.

You're the perfect example of greedy pigs.

If the price is that low , then it even means something is wrong.

Its not about risk management, its about stupid greedy gamblingand we all know how that turns out.

What if i open an exchange, make the site looks "so nice and modern" that has btc priced at $10, would you send me money?

I'm actually glad idiots whos trying to buy btc at $100 lost all their money. They're never bitcoiners, just bunch of parasites who cares about profits and MONEY, fiat money.


Well looky who decides to show up on the high horse.  How is the air up there?

so what is currently the best exchange to trade btcs on? I want to get into daytrading, but not sure what do people view as safest/most reliable exchange? I'm thinking of mixing it up on 2-3 exchanges evenly to minimize risks

Bitcoin is a long term investment.  I recommend people who want to get into investing in Bitcoin stop using it as a day trading tool.  I realize my suggestion will be ignored en masse, but its that nonsense that contributes to the volatility and subsequent LACK OF SUCCESS of bitcoin in the world.  Not that any of you day traders give a sh*t ...

-B-
its easier to day trade than mine bitcoin

Yes it is a gamble, but so is supporting the Bitcoin protocol (which I am proud to support and proud to be a community member of).

And yes, sure it may be "greedy" but it's also a calculated risk based on a history (albeit very clouded) of them having gotten out of stupid catastrophes in the past.

The reason why I would go and snatch up a few coins in at such a "low" value is because in a sense, when the disparity is that significant (50:1) it's essentially a niche prop bet. At least in my eyes.

I'm sorry that my post impassioned you in the wrong manner; that was not my intent whatsoever. I was just being frank and candid about how at that type of disparity, the "gambling itch" would kick in for me as I think it would for many others.

I did not in any way mean to downplay, ridicule, or justify the losses of others; nor did I mean to imply how "good" it would be to attempt to take advantage of a situation like this.

Anyone thinking about calling their bank for a reversal? SEPA should be reversible for two weeks right?

Was close to buying goxbtc when that bitcoin builder site popped up, there was an ask for 25 goxbtc for 3 BTC and I thought about it for a very, very long second. Then I remember seeing that awkward smile on Mark's face holding that fancy coffee and I knew everyone's coins were probably long, long, gone.

Calculated risk huh? ... why do gamblers like to use that as their fancy reason for gambling.

Also supporting bitcoin is same as gambling?.... are you serious bitch?

Just admit it bitch, it was pure greed that blinded you and all you cared was profits. You would dump those coins like bitches on other exchanges as soon as you got a chance.

I almost traded 1 REAL BTC for Gox BTC on Bitcoin Builder.

Then, judging by my past experience with MtGox, I decided not to and withdrew my BTC.

A few hours later, MtGox went down.

Was very lucky on this one.  After registering for Gox in the beginning of December, I was approved just at the time GoxBTC was at it's lowest.  Thought about buying in the $100 range.  TG I did't have an any BTC in my account or I would have gotten beat as well.  But after all what was $1 last year could be $1 next year. Kind of look at this whole thing as a gamble.  In the past few months I have bought BTC, sold BTC, mined BTC, purchased items for BTC and have been scammed of BTC on this journey.  I am kind of liking the whole BTC thing, but I do realize that it's all a gamble and I would never play with any money I can not afford to completely lose.
Just my .00005 BTC (at current rates).
