Yeah, I have never seen any value in bitcoin. I would love for it to totally crash and buy in then, just to see if it would go stupid high again.

For me it's a game. I'm in it for $2200 at this point. I won't invest any more money until I can reach my ROI. At this point I'm just playing the trading game slowly increasing my BTC. I'm not looking at it from a USD standpoint since that fluctuates by the minute. My goal is to reach 1 BTC and then exceed that.

This should help anyone interested in bitcoin.

Yeah, largest theft in crypto (if not all) history will have that effect on a system. But, we play, we pay. I'm just glad I wasn't directly involved!

I'm just under break even. Ethereum has been VERY kind to me. Took some profit and moved it to other alts on Binance. One is about to die a slow death (XRP) the other isn't doing too bad (IOTA). Both only have $20 invested, just to play.

I still think there are some major gains to be had and this technology isn't going away. The longer we go, the deeper blockchain gets entrenched into enterprises. The deeper that goes, the better crypto will do. I think things like non-crypto blockchain (Linux Hyperledger Foundation) will cause a greater adoption of crypto itself.
Just my .02.

Been mulling over trying to find a coin that has potential, that still has easy level mining difficulty.

200% speculation here. However, I'm feeling bullish after the conference this weekend.

Tell you what, we'll check the price of DNT in one year. That was always my minimum hold time anyway. After about a year from now, I'd start looking at what the holdup was. Instead of going down to what it is now, if it had gone up to $1.00, I still wouldn't be selling it. I'll consider selling it at $5

It's at $0.01, and the "odds that it will ever go back down to lower levels are very small" remark was literally the day before the peak.





Sooooo, did you figure out what the holdup is?

I can hear it, "Ok Google, set reminder to check bitcoin thread on dfwm in 6 months." Would you like to save that reminder? "Yes." Ok, reminder set.
