I don't know why I even check the prices so frequently because I am not day trading or selling any coins. I try to buy on the dips but lately Im just sticking to my holdings
Just because you're an addict, just like me.
I'm glad I found out with this poll I'm not alone.  Wink

probably because some of us are so anxious for the price to go up so we can actually do what we want with our lives.. that's if we have enough coins. i don't  Angry

No, it is not the price. I'm sure.
It is the exitement of being involved.
I already wrote off my bitcoin holdings as being worthless.
It feels like being part of the biggest, most important experiment known to mankind ever.
It feels like a privilege. It feels like being part of something people will talk about in 5000 years from now on.
Just like the people who build the pyramids. They knew it was something big, they knew it was going to last for thousands of years.
They could never imagine their pyramid was going to be printed as a symbol on a piece of paper, representing something of value thousands of years later (1 usd note).

Owning (and understanding) bitcoin feels like being part of a new religion.
The price tells me roughly how many other people agree with this feeling.
I even know about anti bitcoin people who own bitcoin them selfs (BIG LOL!!!!).
Even they can't deny the truth.
Even they are checking the price.

I have enough where it would sting if BTC and LTC crashed completely, but not enough to where I would be ruined if it happened.

you may be in it just for the ride, but based at least on my observations, a lot of people are in it just for the money. greed is natural. and i think it'll only get worse the bigger bitcoin gets. the guys who are not greedy will sit by and not really do that much, while the hungry guys climb to the top and use bitcoin to squeeze every bit out of bitcoin.

I'm happy to see I'm not crazy obsessive, as my vote (2-8 times a day) was the most common vote.
I was starting to get worried I am spending too much of my time with btc.

There's no need to check obsessively because a smartphone app with alerts set will warn when it may be worth selling/buying.

Why is everybody refering to ritzcasino?  Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh

They get paid a tiny amount to do it, and in return sacrifice their credibility and the readability of their posts. It encourages them to post often, even when they have nothing useful to say.

2-8 times a day.

But only because it's on the home page of my Galaxy S5.

I used to do this every 5 minits or so with my phone, but I am trying to take some distance from checking and checking and checking.

My goal is every 30 minits or so, can't help this. I also own stocks, but in the stock market you have in the weekends a few days off lol. So you don't have to check each time  Grin

Actually I never thought about how often i check Bitcoin price but after this thread I found myself checking at least 2  to 8 or more times a day. I have tabbed preev.com on my firefox and It takes only 2 secs to check It But i wouldn't call that addiction It's just like automated thing to do while surfing this forum or just on the internet. I'm sure i could handle It without checking the price so often  Tongue

Use to be in the 2-8 category, but not so much anymore. I'm not a day trader anyway, I'm buy as much as I can and keep it. I believe a LOT in Bitcoin longterm, the idea is just too good and too hard to stop. And I understand that the price will continue to swing wildly at least until we go from the innovator to the early adopters phase.

Before I lost my coins on gox I used to check 2 - 8 times a day hoping the price had gone up. Now I check about once a day hoping the price has come down, so I can buy some more.

I'd say once a day I peep at Bitcoinwisdom, but I'll get it shoved down my throat on several crypto sites.  Primarily Coindesk.

For the past 2-3 weeks, I am checking the price of BTC every 15 minutes or so. I lost my full time job last month. So right now, I am converting some of my coins to fiat, just to survive.  Sad

You will find something better.
Higher pay, fun co-workers, and a great company to work for.  Smiley

When my OCD is coming out I check it once a minute lol. But i guess I don't have enough vested in it ATM to check it regularly.
