Lost about a quarter-million not being able to hang on.

I used to work with a guy who wouldn't shut up about it. It was about $50 back then. He was trying to mine but was also buying. He was telling anyone who would listen to buy.

He got out when it hit $1k and made good money (few hundred £k). He'd be a millionaire many times over if he'd stuck to it.

I was tempted at many different price points but it always felt 'too late'. I'm not sure there is a too late any more. We're probably not going to see it go up 4-5x in a year any more but it's certainly sticking around.

I'm using it as a more stable currency for holding crypto (to avoid transfer fees). I transfer to riskier currencies (e.g. Loopring) for quick gains and then convert back to Bitcoin when I think they've peaked. If you catch a hot one, you can get 10% in a day by frequently converting between them.

If you use google sheets and are tracking Bitcoin/Ethereum these functions keep prices up to date*.

=GoogleFinance("CURRENCY:BTCEUR")
=GoogleFinance("CURRENCY:ETHEUR")

I'm almost 100 euros up today

f***inghell Lok, that's what nearly every crypto trader does

All the alt-shit-coins should be used for (other than a few of the decent ones) is to up your BTC sat level. USDT is another way of trading from say BTC into that if you want to temporarily just 'cash out' as it's tethered to the USD price. Can be useful if it's dropping like f*** or whatever and you want to chill for a bit until the bounce.

I'm obviously green to this, I'm not pretending otherwise.

I've passed the paper trading stage and am now at the 'little money' stage (<£1k). I'm seeing how I react to changes emotionally and will continue to up the stakes and monitor how reactive I am (positively or negatively). If still happy I'll up it to big stakes.

Bitcoin does seem to bounce off some pretty obvious technical levels; is that what you trading guys use?

1 Bitcoin = $23

I know the value is astronomical now, so why is google lying to me?

If any of you have 1 Bitcoin for sale I will pay $50 for it. NQA.

Whatever. Doesnít change the fact that itís claiming 1 coin equals a billion times less than it actually does.

Maybe finance chat isnít for you?
