Yes I think its crazy, but also very good for the bitcoin plus its also pretty nice because the bitcoin is getting to a higher level because of these people.
I'm serious I would never do it but you really have a lot over for the bitcoin, I hope you will get a lot of profit by it.

Oh how you like talking out your ass Mat.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=508254.msg13263187#msg13263187

OP is probably breaking even right now

This thread was started on March 8th, 2014. Bitcoin was trading around $620.

According to this news article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21863593

The OP' father's house was worth around $400K. The OP stated that he got 648 BTC for his house, despite first expressing his interest in selling his house for Bitcoin in March 2013, when Bitcoin was just $30! That means that the OPs entry cost per Bitcoin is around $609.

Sorry, but what a fucking fool.

If he wasn't going to live in that house, then clearly the first stop for the capital generated from the house was fiat currency. Scared that the Candian Dollar was gonna tank? Get your money into USD? Get your money inot stocks, get your money into government bonds, and if you must, get your money into Bitcoin at prices way below what he paid and also at prices way below what they are even now.

It was a naive, irresponsible, impulsive, head strong stupid act, and the OP has had the wealth generating potential of all that capital tied up in an ultra high risk asset which has only very recently stopped tanking. As it happens, it looks likely that the OP may just get the chance to get out of Bitcoin at break even level. Indeed, he may even be able to exit Bitcoin with a slight profit for his years of worry and stress.....

....but if he gets greedy, and allows the delusion to persist (and I suspect he will), then he is going to lose his shirt.....

.....which is good, cos Bitcoin is a zero sum game and in order for Bitcoin to generate an income stream for the minority, the majority by definition, must lose wealth by investing in Bitcoin.


(so it seems like you brg444, are the one taling out his arse)

Kraken Account, Robbed/Emptied. Kraken say "Fuck you, its your loss": https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1559553.msg15656643#msg15656643

Bitfinex victims. DO NOT TOUCH THE BFX TOKEN! Start moving it around, or trading it, and you will be construed as having accepted it as an alternative means of payment to your USD, BTC, etc.

sometimes you have to take big risks to take big rewards. especially in a high risk market like bitcoin's market where the price changes with panic sellers who have heard a bad news on an FUD news website.

but this does not meant that if the risk is big you have to go all in because this can happen if you don't think it through:

This thread was started on March 8th, 2014. Bitcoin was trading around $620.
.....

Its very risky, but if you think about the halving that is coming and the fact that the bitcoin is getting bigger everyday, its very possible he will be a rich mean because he sold his house.
I think its pretty cool he did it and also a good choice because you can invest in something else but the bitcoin is the currency of the future.

that financial move on the op to sell his house for bitcoin im sure he sold before he lost a serious amount.

then again, who knows if the op was already financially okay with it.

im sure if he took the plunge without doing his homework, im sure he can eat the loss.

I guess this hasn't turned out so well then? I actually remember seeing the first post in this thread when it was made. It depends if the OP has sold those bitcoin's. If he hasn't then technically he's lost nothing. This time next year the price of 1 bitcoin could be 2000 USD. If he's still HODLING those coins then he'll be the one laughing.

OP gave us an update regarding his situation in december last year.
Quote
Well, well, well... I am back for an update.

Originally (in Post #1) sold my house for approximately $400,000 Canadian, and got approximately 648 BTC in the transaction. BTC is currently at approximately $450 US each. This makes my investment worth $291,600 in U.S. Dollars. Now also note that the Canadian Dollar has tanked really hard in the last year and is now at a 12 year low, around .72c US. That makes my Bitcoin currently worth $405,000 Canadian!. I am currently up on my initial investment! I did weather the storm when it sat at $200 for a long time (and crapped my pants from time to time and did a lot of drinking), but now my time has come. For all those that laughed, we will see who is laughing in 2016!

HODL!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year,

Tay More

Interesting, this is a very old thread, and I would certainly not sell my house especially if I live in it, but instead renting it out and from the rent, buy bitcoins monthly.

Like the guy above me I had the same idea.
Or would do something different, rent it out for BTC or something.
I dont believe selling was the right decision to get BTC.
Maybe because i dont have a few hundred grand in the bank atm.
If you have more money then just the investment in the house I dont see the problem on what he is doing.
I believe the price will go up again so he will be fine eventually but the stress would eat me alive.

Sure he doubled down, it was a gamble, and he might win.

I don't think the biggest risk for him was that he put all his money in bitcoin. I think the biggest risk for him was that he invested a major asset into bitcoin while he could have used that money for other emergencies if so they would have happened.

I`m not sure where he lives, but if you go for a rent and sell your house, that is definitely not a wise move, and it's risky.

But after bitcoin goes up to 700-800$ he will have a nice asset to work with.

You are right, I think the price will go to a high amount soon or later if you ask me, its just a matter of time, just be patient.
I think we just have to wait till the halving has been done and than we can all make profit, Its good that he sold his house for the bitcoin, he will be rich because of the bitcoin.

Oh boy that would be crazy I guess. Cheesy
Sure Ethereum has seen an amazing increase the last weeks, but the question is how high can it go and how sustainable is this rise?
I'm personally not invested in Ethereum, I missed that opportunity.And I also believe right now it is used as a hedge to Bitcoin (blocksize drama etc.).
There could be the possibilty that many will switch to Bitcoin back when Segwit is implemented and halving is coming closer.
Definitely interesting to watch how this will develop.
