A few months back, when BTC dumped to nearly $3200 (or it is $3800) at the beginning of the corona outbreak, a guy from my local who is now living in UK had posted in his facebook that "This is the end of bitcoin. I knew it has to be someday, there it is." I had nothing to say other than asking him to do his homework before doing such speculation. Well, I just have remembered that post and spent a few minutes to find that post and poked him the screenshot of 1 BTC equals to $16602. Guess his feeling now  Grin

I remember a guy like him too. He said that bitcoin was only for the 10's. Other cryptocurrencies will now take place. Price now is more than 4x of that day. Where are you know? Where!?  Cheesy

There will be people like him in the future too. Who knows, we may see a guy in 2025 saying that bitcoin is clearly dead now that it dropped to $30k.

I cannot think of other explanation to why those people who are talking negatively towards Bitcoin and other cryptos, except for the fact that they are not fully aware of its true nature. Many people are calling this technology as scam and fraud without even investing into it or simply studying about it since resources are scattered online. Well, for sure he will be speechless since his claims were proven wrong. But it would be better if he will be interested in this industry in order to know why many people are hooked up with this technology.

Maybe he lost a lot in Bitcoin before that's why he give that negative opinion no idea why they said it but this might be the reason.

you slapped him in the face, so maybe he just didn't say a word and if he only knew that the price of bitcoin could rise again, he might be one of those who invested in it that day instead of giving negative opinion to others.

That’s not the case for sure. He said he never invested in bitcoin as according to him it’s bubble only. He seems to be a hater, problem is he is lacking of information about in my opinion. I shared him a lot of article links so that he can get knowledge.

There are always going to be people like that, we are living in the age of social media in which a lot people share their opinion without knowing anything about the subject believing that just because they have a platform to express themselves that makes them experts and nothing could be further from the truth.

When it comes to bitcoin a lot of people seem to have an opinion but when you ask them if they have read anything about it for the most part they're going to answer you that they have read some news and that's all, so for the most part they get most of their information from the media and as we know the media has stopped being for a long time a reliable source of information, they only care about clickbait and about getting the most profits as possible so they create all kinds of sensational stories about everything including bitcoin, for the most part when I find those kind of persons I do not confront them directly however I make a point to state how anyone that held that kind of opinion before has been proven wrong by the facts and I just look at them with a face that says I know that they were one of those people.

More likely the guy is. It might be his impression due to what he have read, heard or saw on different platforms in particular with the price correction after the previous ATH of Bitcoin wherein many people partially lose profit  due to the price decrease in its value and it last for more than a year. It might gave him an assumption, as what OP mentioned early this year, that Bitcoin will not have a chance to recover this year, but is now proven that his claims are wrong. I won't still agree to hate that guy but rather to educate him more regarding this technology.

For those who say that, I think they are frustrated to see the price of bitcoin shrinking so drastically at that time.
Luckily at that time the person who bought bitcoins on the cheap, and now he is lying on a large pile of money. ha ha ha (just laughing at those who once berated the price of bitcoin)

I have to admit it feels very satisfying doing that. There is a person in the other forum who also said BTC is just a scam and all are just child's play. But when Paypal announced their new venture about allowing users to buy BTC, I also updated his thread regarding it. I'm sure the notification was emailed to him.

Hater is going to hate more when you point them to something they can't take.

If someone thinks that Bitcoin is dead because it experienced like a 50% market dtop, you probably won't change their mind by pointing out that the price is much higher now. They will say "ItS A bUbblE" and will say that Bitcoin is dead again, when the price will drop to $30k from $100k, or something like that. I wouldn't waste my time arguing and trying to convince nocoiners, it's their choice and right to be ignorant.

I don't know if that is a good idea though, seem that you are rubbing it in.

You could have said "I told you so",  Grin

In any case there's a lot of haters of bitcoin really and even though it has reach it's top in 2017, many are still no-believers even if we reach $50k or $100k.

Sadly on my part I don't have to poke another guy. I was guilty of the same fear and doubt even though I myself believed that Bitcoin has a bright future. As a matter of fact, I still have buy orders stuck at around $7,500 and $8,500 right now. That's the price I had to pay by selling some at a price lower than that. Who would have thought the price would more than triple within the year?

However, I'd like to believe that the fall of Bitcoin, its subsequent recovery and rise, and the pattern that it created along this line will eventually make people realize that however high the price of Bitcoin falls it will always rise again. And they will develop stronger hands.

Is that a revenge? It may be a good idea but we do not that guy had also been also investing more btc when market is down and he can also get back with the poke with his investment buying low and selling high. Anyway, what matter here is our way or strategic way of investing in bitcoin. If one can buy low and sell high it could be a good strategy but buying bitcoin even at higher price would still be a good choice for a long term hold.

if it were to "poke" every brainless monkey whom i know in real life or online and had made some stupid comment about bitcoin then i wouldn't have time to do anything else in my life. and i have been around for 6 years so i know quite a lot of them! not to mention that it is pointless to just poke the person alone.

however, i think that sometimes it is good to remind other people of the idiocy of these people and how FUD works. for example recently someone bumped a topic in speculation board which i liked because it was a good reminder about how they operate during any kind of dip. and that has educational merit.

The best that you can do when someone is talking smack on bitcoin and does not want to hear a reason or is not open minded to contradicting ideas or information is to ignore them at best. Dumb ones can be taught on what is right or to know the other side of things but fools will just reject anything, any rational information that does not support their thesis will just woosh above their heads. Had run ins with this kind of people and by far the least stressing action to do by far is to ignore.

While I admit that "I told  you so" in these type of situations can feel good, BTC going to 16,000+ won't change his opinion or feeling about BTC as people like that will say that "BTC went already to 20k and then dumped so it will do it again", or "it is just pump and dump scheme" or something along those lines. You know the saying, "You cannot reason people out of positions they didn't reason themselves into" and this applies here as well. For them BTC price is pretty much irrelevant and they will always find some excuse. At least that was my experience.

For me, it's a complete waste of time and arguing with those doomsayers is like playing a chess with a pidgeon; sooner or later it will knock all the pieces, shit on the board and strut around like he won anyway. I won't say I didn't make that mistake and argued in the past ( I am active on one IT forum) but I learned my lesson eventually.

What an epic comeback! Hahaha you're so mean Grin. But I will consider it as lawful evil because that man deserves it. Actually, a screenshot of the recent price isn't enough dude. If I were on your position, I'll add "In your face lol". How pity for the antagonists not only of btc but crypto in general. They are wasting the opportunity of earning just to because they are afraid to stay away from the norm. Exploring isn't bad.

Bitcoin doesn't care any particular ideas or thought. I believe that no matter whether you care it or not, Bitcoin will increase in value either way. Looks back 4 years ago, when Bitcoin was at just only $709, now at the moment it near to touch $17K. Indeed, not everyone as intelligent to figure out the right track.

Well, it might be a valuable lesson to him and/or to some other people like him. Bitcoin has very low points, but it tends to climb up eventually. But those determined in their belief that Bitcoin is worthless will ignore this fact and remain confident that next time Bitcoin will definitely fall beyond recovery and stay there.
I also wanted to point out that I don't remember Bitcoin falling THAT low. And I've checked coingecko, where the lowest point in 2020 was $5032 on 17th of March. It's still very low, but not as low at the figure you've mentioned. Is this a mistake on your part or could you perhaps provide a proof that the price went that low?
