Have you bought any bitcoin ?

Recommended Posts

I know people who did and have made some good profits, I think we missed the boat and it feels a bit too much like gambling without really spending the time to research and fully understand the ins and outs of cryptocurrencies.

A lot of it is gambling, there's no real value behind it and it's just betting against what other people will do with their own money.  Bitcoin on its own can't do much, and probably never will.

Some of the new startups using crypto tokens look good, because they're actually linked to a business principle so have tangible value that can act as a proper investment in the real world with people actually using it for something.  It's a good place to diversify some coins to make a real stake from the speculative gains in case those gains disappear into thin air overnight.

Bitcoin will always be the main coin I think because it was first even if technically there are better and newer coins.

This could be the best chance to buy bitcoin in your lifetime.

I suggest everyone have a look.

By the way you don't have to buy a whole bitcoin.

Unlike our dollars which are broken down to cents ie 0.01 is 1 hundredth of a dollar.

Bitcoins are divisible by 8 decimal places and are called satoshis ie 0.00000001 is the smallest unit.

You can buy $500 or $1000 worth or whatever you want.

I think it should be part of any investment portfolio. It would be wise to treat it as speculative and allocate 5% of your portfolio to crypto currencies.

If they do ultimately boom and go to a huge price as many predict you can thank me later.

www.coinbase.com is the easiest place to start if you want to buy some.

You having trouble offloading some of yours, Parley? - now that it's lost more than half its value in less than 2 months....and governments and regulators are getting serious about cracking down on it.

No Skani, I haven't sold any.

I am buying for the long term.

I'm not surprised they are cracking down on it, it' nothing more than a huge pyramid scheme. You might as well invest in a brown paper bag full of sand.

It has value because of its money laundering ability, and all that is connected to.

If people want to gamble on that then fine.

Personally I have principles.

It has legitimate uses.

The blockchain technology will be huge. Legitimate business do accept cryptocurrencies as forms of payment.

Just because it doesn't make sense to you doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it.

And you don't have principles. You are happily making money out of the Trump presidency which you say you don't agree with also.

Well, when trump starts trafficking drugs, gets into white slavery and funds terrorists, then I may withdraw my money from the USA.

Very few businesses accept Bitcoin or any of these pseudocurrencies. They are just made up currencies supported by nothing and as Bitcoin is showing prone to enormous swings and many suspect the Bitcoin bubble has burst.

Bitcoin price: Why is Bitcoin BTC falling today? Will it continue to fall?

BITCOIN’s price has plunged by about $25billion in the past 24 hours and the cryptocurrency looks set to suffer another disappointing day on the markets. But why is bitcoin (BTC) falling today?

The world biggest and best-known cryptocurrency slumped below the symbolic $10,000 threshold yesterday (Wednesday February 1), but its value crashed further overnight to about $8,600.

Bitcoin has fallen by more than 56 percent since the turn of the year, after peaking at nearly $20,000 in December 2017.

CoinMarketCap price charts show that bitcoin has been falling for weeks, though this latest crash has been blamed on mounting confusion surrounding the Indian Government’s stance on cryptocurrencies.

I'm just surprised and a little disappointed. You always seemed like you were against terrorism. Not supporting it. And I'm amazed you are profiting from it. Although you may not be by now.

Bitcoin is not used for any of that sort of stuff.

It is not a crypto suitable for money laundering or anything like that.

You need to use Monero for that dark web sort of stuff.

Bitcoin is a legitimate cryptocurrency and its usage is growing exponentially.

We are still in the early adopter stage.

Not to mention most ransom hackers use bitcoin.

The fact they caught her proves my point that it is not really suitable for anonymous criminal use.

She obviously didn't realise there are better options.

Well, as long as your conscience is clear. But aren't you worried your loses aren't divine intervention?

As I said it is perfectly legitimate.

Did you know you can get a Visa card linked to your bitcoin ?

https://bitpay.com/card/

Or do you think Visa re in bed with the terrorists ?

You better cut up your visa card in case you get accused of being a hypocrite.

For how much longer?  Lloyds Bank has just banned purchases of Bitcoin with credit cards.  Not likely to be the only one.
