The longer and deeper this bear market runs, the more impressed your family and friends will be when the next bubble finally comes around and they realize that you did not waver under pressure. This bear market is nothing more than an opportunity to shine.

My family and friends tends to ask very different, far more interesting, less myopic, long-term-oriented questions. Which I'm happy to answer. I've had, and continue to have, fascinating conversations with friends and family about bitcoin and related topics.

The questions you posted, if representative of the types of questions you've received or would receive from your family and friends, are indicative of your core problem, perhaps: Your family and friends are morons. Being surrounded by weak-minds can have a very negative influence on your own intellect.

tl;dr: Try to surround yourself with smart, interesting people, Sevvero. You'll be better off for it ultimately.

...and toward that end myself, I'm done with this thread Smiley

i tell them i've doubled my btc thanks to lucky trades and mining altcoins but still managed to lose money

just kidding, i dont talk about it any more, its an embarrassment because of the price

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

I try to live up to the impression that bitcoin is for money laundering by showing up at family gatherings with gold teeth and a mink coat.

I have and I do, some friends have bought btc in small due in some part to my attempts to explain its benefits, satisfying though it is, it sadly does not scale very well

Sounds like someone got burned.

Did you buy high and sell low?

Or

Did you give up your coins to a scammer?

How can we expect to socialize Bitcoin if we don't even talk about it with our own family... We need this types of small steps together for big impact.

I do sometime talk about Bitcoin with my friends. However, not all the time. Simply because not all of them understand how bitcoin work. I tried very hard to explain but.. oh well.. nothing work..

you should not talk about how rich or poor you are, you should explain the system in this case.

Think I'll wait until the price drops to below 100. Now might not be the right time as it will give bad impression about btc Grin

Hypocrite, at least admit you were dumb to your friends and family. There have to be dumb people in this world, rich need to make money somehow.

I speak about it all the time.

I can send thousands of dollars to anybody anywhere in the world,
I can do so without leaving my desk or my home for that matter,
I can do this without worrying about the bank ripping me a new one in fees,
I can do so in less time it takes you to put on your shoes before you go to your bank,
....
....

So you will still find me singing its praise even if it drops all the way to $1.

Just for interest, at $1 it will still be worth double your fiat as half your fiat will go to the bank in fees.
