I dont know how is going adoption, but some people think it is dying, just because there are no headlines in news about bitcoin. But those people will be waken up in few years, and will regret, that they were just waiting on sidelines, for news people to tell them what is going on in real world.

User adoption is moving slowly but it's not dying. We need an idea for something everyone will want but can only be purchased with Bitcoin. Like the next big fad. POGs or Beanie Babies but for Bitcoin. Once people have learned how easy it is to use Bitcoin with Circle many of them will use it again.

Some alt-coin shake-out has to happen . So much dead money in alt-coins it could drag some of BTC down.

Maybe but I see altcoins as more pump n dump coins for children. I'm surprised we haven't seen one called BeerMoneyCoin or AllowanceNotEnoughCoin. Most of the dumbasses are pumping on bad clones of even worse scrypt based shitcoins. I don't know why these kids think you can clone a turd and think it's suddenly going to smell like a rose. I doubt many first time users are purchasing anything with most of the altcoins. Mr. Normal Citizen is not going to use Dogecoin or Darkcoin to buy from Overstock even if they could. Bitcoin is alone in name recognition and availability.

I don't think that children are making the altcoins, as the devs need to have some level of programming expertise to make and launch an altcoin.

The creators want to at least an appearance of the alt coin having value, although I do agree that they are nothing more then scams

Yeah, you're right. Kids could never do anything that technologically sophisticated.

I invested almost all my savings in btc when it was 950. Well, fuck you bitcoin, fuck you and all the Altcoin and everyone else. I hate the fucking day I knew about btc a D decided to invest. Everyone was like "Bitcoin is the future", "Bitcoin to da moon"... yes, my ass. I only have a job which will last only another one month. I hoped to make some money, and I lost everything. Thanks all guys. This forum is so good in giving right info.

Go fuck yourself too. Wink... Bitcoin isn't some get rich ponzi scheme for investors to just buy up and make a quick buck. Bitcoin is a fragile project we are all struggling to make real and has done some amazing things despite all odds but still needs a lot of effort to be realized.

If you are going to invest , don't spend what you can't lose and have liquidity to buy at great times like these.

You realize it already dipped to 275 and now is back up to 299 right? It may crash against down to 200-250 as well. This is nothing new. Don't be stupid and sell at a loss , this is great time to buy more.

That was your only mistake. Investments are as likely to lose you money as they are to make you money. I've made money and lost money on the stock market. I've made money and barely broke even because of broker commissions on the stock market. That's not the stock markets fault. If you we're here only to make money then you fucked up. Bitcoin didn't do that to you.

I think most people are just being quiet since the Bitcoin price isn't increasing. However, if it was then a lot of hype would be generated.

My take on it is, we got the bubble when alt-coins took off and people could mine with their GPU's, we had people from all over the world buying out stocks of AMD graphics cards pushing the prices of them up 50% in some cases. This caused the price of bitcoin to go up to $1200 at its peak. Then over time as people joined in the profits in GPU mining dropped, asic's came out, then the price dropped through the floor and even the less power hungry algo's like x11 can't even make your electric cost back. Your average Joe lost money and most don't want to invest in ASIC's and a large percentage of those people have lost interest.

Now we have a domino effect and its even hard for ASICs to make a profit. I'm looking to sell my ASIC's but i'm going to hold onto the small amount of btc I have and hope that there is a spike again.

Why are you blaming bitcoin and the forum for your own stupidity?  Investment 101, you never put all your eggs in one basket.  I invested a few grand into bitcoin when it was roughly $600. Am I mad because I'm losing money? Not at all.  This isn't a short term thing, it's a long term investment in the future.

By the looks of your case, you were looking into bitcoin as a get rich quick plan.  Those plans rarely ever work out well.  Just ask all the people that lost everything when the .com crash happened.

If you look at his previous posts you would also see that the money that he invested in bitcoin was not even "his" as it was a gift given to him by his grandmother. IMO he has no business investing any money in bitcion as it was never what he earned to invest.

Regardless the price decline has clearly not gotten him to decide to not continue his involvement in bitcon as he is clearly still somewhat active in trolling

Collect 10$ bills each week. Eleven weeks left, that could fit on 10k BTC at christmas pricing.
The expectation of the poster above was: BTC will go up. Moonish, so to say.
Today it is: Will go down.

And that is the trouble, a downwards spiral where market expectations make it look rationale to sell all BTC as a smart move. You can always buy back lower.

What sounds smart for the single market participant, selling earlier for a higher price then people following a second late, is lethal for the whole currency. From this projection, the "ideal buying price" is ZERO. Just from that point onwards it is difficult to regain a value above ZERO, ever again. Since each and every Pennystock can literally outperform Bitcoin with just some feature, may it speed or blockchain download time or just anything, that Bitcoin does not offer so far.

Tuff days.

Meh, I've seen a few of these fall/winter drops in price and it always goes up again. People just want to make money on Bitcoin fast like it's a magic pill. When that doesn't happen they get butthurt.

Yes, I agree with this.
Human mentality is very interesting.
People have a herd mentality and this is very easy to monitor in the market.
If news are positive and price is going up, everybody buying.
If the price falls, everybody trying to sell in panic.
Only people who think rationally manage to make money on the stock market.
So, for some people, current situation with Bitcoin this is disaster and for others golden opportunity to earn good money.
