I got some BTC for free in the early days, but I didn't even take it as something important. It's not a regret though, just a lesson I learnt from. I would never look down on things that seem difficult to understand at first.

My biggest regret is joining this forum late and if I look back again I will be very sorry for not buying cheap bitcoin as people say from the price of $ 150 - $ 200, I don't know that eventually the price of bitcoin will double like the current price this.

My regrets...

1. I mined Bitcoin back in 2011. I made the decision to stop mining because the value I was mining was getting close to the cost of electricity. At the time, my mid level graphics card mined about 1 BTC every 7 days, and in 2011 the value of 1 BTC was...meh. I regret that I didn't continue mining for longer.

2. I forgot about my wallet, then, a couple of years later, as the price started rising, I sold off the entire proceeds at mtgox. I ended up with about $500 in my account. If I'd waited a few more years, I could have netted over $200,000. I couldn't have predicted the massive increase in value, but it was still stupid to sell 100% of my funds.

So yeah, as a reasonably early adopter, when it was still possible to mine Bitcoin on commodity equipment in a house... I did some dumb things.

.....

I remember reading about a guy who went all in and bought $30k worth of GFX cards and mainboards, on credit. This was probably around 2011-2012, before ASICs were a thing. People said he was crazy.

I only regret that I do not have the patience to keep the coins to the end.  I take them off very quickly.  And I often suffer from this.  In this way I try to reinsure myself, but it turns out just the opposite.

I used to have similar attitude. I couldn't hold my tokens for a longer time. I tried to change, then I refused to sell my tokens during a bull run. The reverse also hurts, but we move on.

The first time, I got a BTC while playing a game (fauncet), at that time I thought it was just bonus score that I got,  and I thought if the bonus score were not worth at all, only after I read a some articles on a some site at that time does apparently BTC have price value.

You don't have to be sorry with that, no one knows what the future will be, you should be thankful your are finally here as although the price is not anymore at the range you mentioned, there' still more room to grow in the future.

If you are bullish about the future, just search some articles that says about the future prediction of experts, some even predict the price will hit $1 million per BTC and I think that's realistic given BTC is limited in supply and the demand will eventually increase.

1. In 2017 I have a coin name Grimcoin, I got 50k coins from the airdrop. When listed on 1st exchange named Coinsmarkets exchange, price pumped till 2k sat percoin. My mistake is I don't sell my coins and prefer hodling then hoping price will comeback into more than 2k sat again. But, I was wrong the price of Grimcoin keep dropping until 100 sat. If I can sell it while pumping I can get 1BTC  Cry

2. In 2018 I have a coin named Bitcoin White, I have 5k coins from the airdrop. Same as Grimcoin experience I don't sell it when pumping after listed on 1st exchange. If I can sell it I can get 0.5BTC (1 btw/@10K sat)

Yeah? What were those coins though? share them here and share the dates you sold them. I am almost 100% sure that if you were holding alts (you said coins so for sure they were alts), then you would see that you made an OK decision today. Most alts are DOWN 90% from their high so if you released them any time last year, you'd be happy today.

This is a bitter experience, actually yours is somehow worst version of mine. I knew about BTC in the year 2015 and my greatest regret is not putting all savings which worth around 1000$ into it. If am not mistaken, my 1000$ should have turned to 20k$ or more today. It's really something I can't forget easily
just like you, i also regret not investing all my savings at that time. but i think, regret will not fix everything, if only everyone realized it earlier then everyone who was here had become rich  Grin Grin. of course regret never exists and we also will never learn from experience.

so we should continue to look forward now and think that regret is a valuable lesson. so we can try our best to get more profit in the future.

Now we are doing everything possible so that in the future we have everything we dream about. we have no time for regrets. need to move forward and earn crypto

many regrets that I experienced in this crypto market such as being late to join the forum because I started my career in this field around September 2018, maybe if I got to know this industry in 2017 I could have many valuable tokens. on the other hand many say that 2017 is a good year for prize hunters because most of the projects were successful at the time. and when new forum rules such as the merit system are enforced, it also greatly influences stake prizes in bounty campaigns.

Hindsight is 20/20.
Mine was when I wanted to put an extra $200 I had into bitcoin when it was at $900. Little did I know that a few months later, it would explode.
The money ended up going to a place it needed to be, so I chalk it up to it just not being my time instead of bad luck.

I've have several regrets in cryptocurrency and Infact the regrets happens daily, either when I sell before a price pump or hold and see my portfolio drop.
My greatest regret was not starting cryptocurrency earlier than I did, though I started as soon as I was introduced and had to make so many mistakes along the line due to my ignorance and the person who introduced me was also a novice and didn't know much.
I regret not buying bitcoin when it was less than 500$ and rather wasted my funds on hyip and ponzi scheme.
I regret not buying eth when it was 12$, though I didn't know how to buy it at that time and was busy with my academics.

But in all these regrets, am glad of my experience so far and believe that my mistakes were necessary to bring me to where I am now.

6 btc is a lot, if at this time, you might not have luck. therefore don't be too hateful if we haven't done previous research. before 2017, maybe a lot of people like you, even I also like that, but unfortunately I know bitcoin from 2017, and from that moment on everybody doesn't look down on bitcoin. suppose I know before 2017, maybe now I can retire

Exactly all of it are the lesson learned and to be honest it isn't yet too late to start and do the right path now. Thanks to those experiences right now we are fully aware and enlightened to the world of crypto.

My biggest mistake was when I sold my Counting House tokens from bounty campaign for 0.3 BTC on EtherDelta and few weeks later the price pumped almost 15times! If I have 4BTC, I wouldnt have to participate in bounty campaigns anymore.  Cheesy

You said he was your friend but on the second to last part of your sentence you call him a guy , and you don't see him anymore?  sorry but I don't think that im going to believe your story because I think it's not legit rather it was only a made up  but I agree that we all experience a regret before because we didn't knew that Bitcoin will become much valuable in the future  but that's life  . We should move on ,don't let the past hunt you because it's not beneficial

My regret is to join the Cryptocurrency late. If from the past already know the Cryptocurrency of course already has a lot of Bitcoin. In the year 2017, of course, will get many advantages.

So when I was already joining Cryptocurrency, I tried to collect altcoins. I was lucky because in 2017 it also gained profit, though not much. But it can treat my regrets of late joining the Cryptocurrency.

no need to regret because of it. Now is a great time to be in cryptocurrency. We are waiting for a lot of very positive events and a lot of money.

My greatest crypto regret was when a friend wanted to give me 6btc in 2010 and i told him this 'you are just wasting your time with all this useless internet things' and even the guy wasnt sure if what is holding will worth it in future so the guy replied 'it costs me nothing' ,after few months i stop seeing the guy again even till date,i thinks he is not in my city anymore,what is your greatest crypto regret?

You would have also regretted not holding the 6  BTC if you had collected and impatiently sold it. It takes a lot of discipline to invest and hold Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency long-term.
Regretting things is a waste of considering  there are lots of other investments that could make you rich long-term. I bet if you are shown the investments they wouldn't make sense to you



BIG WINNER!
