Think of it as investing in another currency.

Just remember, never invest more than you can afford to lose, and quit while you're ahead.

Save the last bitcoin for me!

Investing in dollar? wow, very good idea. (sarcasm)
And it has a high potential for growth.

Trust me. $1 will never be equal to even $1.1  Grin
But
1BTC has a great chance to be at around $600.

If dollars had the chance to rise by a huge percent like bitcoin does, then believe me, I would hold on to dollars like it was all I had.

I don't think the mindset you're suggesting to have is gonna change anything for anybody that knows what they've invested in

USD risk is too low, I dont think its called investing. Its more like "doing nothing".

I think he wants us to print out the OP and put it on the wall near where we eat breakfast so that we can consider it like a mantra or a poem or a  spiritual aphorism.  That's the best I can tell.

Calling other sheep "sheeples" and going against the herd doesn't make you any less of a sheep.  Just a retarded sheep with far shorter life expectancy.

My motivation for creating this, if I had one, was to convince myself to let go of the HODL mindset.

The key is to store your wealth where it will gain/retain the most purchasing power.  Over the past year or so, the USD has beaten bitcoin at holding purchasing power.  In previous years, it's been bitcoin by a long shot.  In the future, who knows?

Who knows. But perhaps selling after a 12 month bear market in a sea of good news is a bit silly.

I've been kind of out of the loop, and I could use some good news.  Would you mind sharing?  Main thing that comes to mind for me is the release of OpenBazaar.

Another good news, imho, was that Microsoft is now accepting bitcoin payments.  I don't use microsoft myself, but I know that many people do.  The more places high profile places where bitcoin is accepted, the better.

The Hold mindset is not necessarily bad.
You need all kinds of people - savers, profligate people, holders, speculators, etc. to have a thriving bitcoin economy.

in previous years the dollar has held steady while bitcoin has increased in value as people have realized what it is capable of achieving. The question of where the price will go in the future is unknown

Another reminder I always told myself or anyone that I talk to in order to promote bitcoin is that, investing in crypto is a long-term investment. The fundamentals are there, the concept and technology are there, what it needs is time for it to stabilize and adoption to pick up.

I would still call bitcoin a very speculative 'investment'. I always couch this whenever I talk to someone new to it.

+1 on this. It is far from certain that bitcoin (or any crypto currency) will survive over the long term. IMO if bitcoin does end up surviving another 5ish years then it's value will probably be much higher then it is now

You can't possibly think objectively about Bitcoin while you have a few in your pocket. Put down the kool-aid and step away from the keyboard
You can't possibly post seriously in the speculation forum while you don't have a speculative financial position. Put your money where your mouth is and step away from the keyboard.

Gambling in a casino has an entertainment value and a certain experience that people are willing to pay for. You get a certain level of fun and excitement. Additionally when you gamble, if the game is fair and you gamble "correctly" you should only lose so much on average each hand so if your bankroll is large enough the chances of you loosing everything is actually small.
