Sounds like someone got burned.

Did you buy high and sell low?

Or

Did you give up your coins to a scammer?

He probably just sold his bitcoins as the price is dropping. However WE WILL STAND BESIDE BITCOIN! THE NEXT MAJOR PRICE JUMP!!!

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.



Well said..! completely agree with you!

I personally never speak about Bitcoin with friends / family as in how many coins I have, but I did tell them about it.

Their response was that it's just a scam, or another ponzi and for that reason they won't use it and probably never will.

The only thing non tech people hear is the scams, mtgox, hackers, etc. The media here 99% of the time only covers bad news.

People who talk about money all night at parties are crass and boring. Tech talk is too nerdy and wears listener's patience. Economics...please no.
I try to have fun when I visit with friends and family. They already know what btc is (thanks to me) and they care about me, so if they've heard of these lows they might express concern, or steer clear so as to not embarrass me.
We get together to enjoy. The few people I know who have brought it up recently, were inquiring as to my situation, hoping I wasn't being ruined or asking if I had changed direction.
Btc is transitioning, in 5 years every one will be using it. Whether they realize it or not.
Plus I paid ~60$ each for my coins.
Not worried  Cool
