Always been and always will be. I watched it go down to 1.99 without selling. I am always skeptical, but overall long-term bullish.  Fundamentals trump technicals. Can’t win without being willing to risk it all.

I have a single bet, and that bet is that Bitcoin’s forced scarcity combined with decentralization will attract huge money. The move to 32 was not caused by this type of money. Before I see most of its potential reached, I’ll be in, whether I lose the bet or not.

Also, I wanted to stock up on more sub dollar Bitcoins like in April. Too bad it diidn’t happen.

Sorry for the thread necro, but this is just an example of where we come from.

Respect to you, Blitz Wink

I would have bought one more 'double-down-but-not-fully-double' somewhere in the $1.20-$1.80 range, but we didn't get there, and my exchange of choice shut down.  I agree fully that the way to make money in this game is to kiss everything one puts into Bitcoin goodbye and reduce the temptation to sell to near zero.

I sold enough at 10x so that I have no net money in and a pile of 'free' Bitcoins.  Now I wait on 100x if it ever happens.  If not, I'm fine to simply not lose money.  Since I do pay taxes as appropriate, it is not in my interest to hurry things.  I'm by no means confident or happy about certain of the possible political and technical directions of Bitcoin's future.  If I do liquidate significantly, it will likely be driven by these factors more than it will be by economic considerations.

Best-case scenario is that I draw down Bitcoin as something of a 'pension' in the coming years, and it becomes well enough known so that I can buy interesting 'toys' (machinery, labor, etc) with it directly to avoid the various hassles and grief associated with official fiat money.

Nice Find! Wish I could say I go back to 2011, well at least I was trying to buy but there was no place to easily enough.

Nice motivation. Always have some position for the future.

BTC = Black Swan.
BTC = Antifragile - "Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Robust is not the opposite of fragile.

yep some so called "permabulls" turned out to be not perma enough. Should have held, now I only have this for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7TuFy0fcuw

Actually I'm good on that front, I never missed a major Bitcoin wave up and I don't have any plans to do so in the future. Grin At the time, it was simply useless to sell into the market because it was too easily moved at those points. Back then, we really did have manipulators. Somewhere from $4 on the way down I just stopped trading it to make BTC while losing USD, held the BTC and went away. I was sitting on profits, but of course it still hurt.

Only thing I try to do is hedge my risks for the major waves and position myself. If this market goes back to a good value proposition (and a similar despair!), I will see things similarly again as I move a good portion to a paper wallet. If I am wrong, I will see it and buy back. I don't fight the market. Everyone has his strategies, I prefer a more active approach to managing my risk (BTC gains are actually only secondary) while riding the long-term bull and it's working well for me.

Any non-trader must admit that there are hype cycles with Bitcoin as a bunch of newbies quickly flow in and then many of them slowly flow out as they get bored, and it's expressed in the bubbles. What remains at the end is the long-term trend.

BTW, this topic was created on a day when Bitcoin ranged from 3.8 to 4.5 and was on its way up to 7.22 where it would then consolidate for many months around 5. 7.22 was broken only in July 2012, half a year after we topped out at 7.22.
