Update: Blackrock, the worlds largest asset manager that manages $7 + TRILLION says they are “dabbling” in bitcoin. I don’t know how big a dabble is but a dabble of 7 trillion has got to be a lot.

Update: Elon Musk just tweeted that Tesla will buy $1.5B of bitcoin and begin accepting bitcoin as payment for Tesla cars. Bitcoin soars.

Update: BTC is up 6k in the last week of 2020 first days of 2021.

Update: Bitcoin reaches new ATH over 24k Dec 19 2020. Up 5k in the last week and 8k in the last month.


From 11,400 to 17,900 in the last month. ATH few years ago was about 20k.

I wonder whatever happened to the board member here who cashed out 21,000 bitcoins when it hit a thousand bucks. It’d be worth nearly 400 million now. Yoiks!

I've been watching GBTC climb again in my portfolio and I have been wondering why I haven't heard much about it in the news.

Gold has been dropping during the same timeframe so it isn't a flight to quality type scenario, or maybe it is I don't know.

my plan is the same: I bought 3.5 BTC when it was about 400'ish.  

I'm not doing anything with them till I retire. They'll either be worthless, or they'll be worth 50K apiece or something.



I think there is better crypto now, but since there's not enough bitcoin in the world for everyone to have one,  I think it's always going to be somewhat "Collectible" and prices will continue to rise over time.

I will retire in 15-20 years probably.

I wouldn't buy any at all right now. I dabbled in the frenzy when it went from 800 to 20k in just 6 months. Then I witnessed the big pop and bam, people started jumping ship.
I told my self I would by when it gets back down to 2-3k.

No, why would you replace it with monopoly money which has lost more than 90% of it's value?

Lend yourself money with the btc as a collateral and spend the useless USD and keep the BTC wrapped in smart contracts and keep it forever.

Service the 2% loan with inflating USD and wait another few more years and boom take out another loan after BTC further appreciates. No taxable events occured.

People just don't realize what we are sitting on.

I took out a $600 dollar loan and paid for a gun I wanted. I never sold my ETH. It's at net 1% interest and since then it has gone up in value substantially. I pay the loan back on my time, when I want, and I retrieve my rapidly appreciating ETH.

Said every guy watching it break through all time highs in 2017 on a daily basis.

Its entirely possible that Bitcoin corrects back to $10,000 before moving on and its entirely possible that it doesn't.  Bitcoins normal trading range is just that large.

The real truth is that it doesn't whether you enter at $10k or $18k.   The only reason to gamble on Bitcoin is for the next bubble if there is one.  If we have a 4th bubble, getting in at $10k vs $18k will be irrelevant.

But the ticket, take the ride, and understand that it could take years if it happens at all.

This is gambling son.  This is not a sensible investment.

It's a bubble making machine.  True believers hold on, a few people adopt, prices start to climb, no one wants to sell because they're all looking for the new high, prices climb faster, people pay attention because it's going up, more money piles in, the bubble goes higher.

They have printed more dollars in the past 9 months than in the 100 yrs prior.  Go figure why BTC is up.
Institutional money is flooding in and there are only 3ish million BTC left to be mined.

For reference, if you invested that $1200 check you got from Uncle Sam a couple months ago in BTC, it would be worth over $3200 now.  Let that sink in.

Can’t tell if being serious about the FED comment.  The fed is actively working at making our money worthless.  They have to in order to be able to service the debt they hold and in order to keep our economy going.  People are piling in because many people currently believe that leaving your net worth in the hands of government that will inflate your money away at best or have a currency collapse at worst is a bad idea.

Because major retailers, financial institutions, banks, travel companies, and just about anyone with technical foresight now sees it as a legitimate way to store and transfer wealth.

Bitcoin bubbles are an inevitable consequence of the design of the protocol.   Bitcoin bubbles don't need a reason, they only need enough time and an excuse.
