These were nice years, but unfortunately all things come to an end. It is time to say "Goodbye". I still think bitcoin is a brilliant invention which brings immense power to the masses but the human element was more agile and found ways to almost destroy it. It's wounded, but not by a security flaw, not by a design flaw, just by misuse and abuse. Nobody can tell what will happen in the future but one thing is certain: nothing goes up indefinitely and all markets are cyclic.

Bitcoin was a chance to learn on economics, markets, psychology and technology. A great ROI. I would recommend anyone here to buy whatever amount one can loose in  the next 5 minutes and put it aside until 2017-01-17, along with the same amount in USD. I am very curious which will have more value then.

Good bye.

My exact thoughts. I remember I had a scared moment in December of 2011. Glad I didn't leave.

Looks like you two missed what OP said: "nothing goes up indefinitely".

The strategy of buying the despairs and buying when everyone is bearish works until it doesn't.

These were nice years, but unfortunately all things come to an end. It is time to say "Goodbye". I still think bitcoin is a brilliant invention which brings immense power to the masses but the human element was more agile and found ways to almost destroy it. It's wounded, but not by a security flaw, not by a design flaw, just by misuse and abuse. Nobody can tell what will happen in the future but one thing is certain: nothing goes up indefinitely and all markets are cyclic.

This is strange.  Bitcoin is more a libertarian concept than a technology.  The blockchain is a technology invention that made the libertarian concept of a cryptocurrency possible.

What we are seeing (and I applaud it being a libertarian myself) is exactly the freedom we are longing for.  Predator and prey, greed and scam, the powerful and the weak, hopes and deception, wild swings, ups and downs: that IS liberty.  The "human element" is exactly what we want to liberate, and what you call the destructive powers is exactly the freedom we are longing for.  So what's the problem Huh

Bitcoin is an element of libertarian freedom, and is behaving also in that way.

To me, this is all just great !  What did you expect, maybe ?  Freedom means also that you shouldn't count on any specific behavior of others to achieve something.  Freedom means exactly that: freedom.  

I would even think that high gains and high losses, despair and so on, are a very good way to distribute seigniorage well amongst people.  The early adopters will have taken profit, or will have made huge losses, and the seigniorage that would have been theirs will not be theirs as they will have gone through many periods of despair, having handed over their coins to others, with profit or with loss.  This cycle may repeat itself several times, to shake out the early coins several times, and randomly distribute it.

There always has to remain the doubt of bitcoin failing.  If it weren't, coins wouldn't get redistributed, but would simply be held indefinitely.  The genuine possibility of bitcoin failing is part of the distribution scheme.  But then, it also has a genuine probability to fail !

I don't consider myself a libertarian per se, but good points all around. It is exciting to see a wild west mentality and landscape where people are forced to be 100% accountable for themselves.

Looking at your account, I can see you are one of the early adopters. But why leave right now after having gone through so many turbulence years with bitcoin. I still keep my hopes positive that one day things will get better.

Bye and thanks for distributing the cheap coins more.

I'm kinda disappointed to see you leave like that, mainly for what dinofelis pointed out.

Instead of 60m USD you only have 10m now? That's gotta hurt, your life is ruined man!

Bitcoin is just getting started, there is still much more to experience.

It's probably because he's very ill, he started a thread about it a while ago.

It's been great reading your posts wobber and I'm sorry you are leaving.

...

The easiest thing might be to visit a doctor first.

Doctors visited, no chance. none.

AND I HAVE TO MAKE A POINT: Bitcoin's price is not my main problem.

What do you think is wrong with Bitcoin?  I mean, other than the price being too low for your liking - what are these perceived problems you see with Bitcoin?

I think it's working just fine, and adoption continues to go up.... where is the problem?
