your kidding right? ive been in bitcoin since 2012 I have been buying selling trading since. so no i did not lose anything.
now as far as a scam.I would liken a scam to something along the lines of a get rich quick themed idea/event etc. bitcoin isnt that. If you hear someone complaining that they lost money in btc, its because they tried to get rich quick and lost. thats flat out gambling not investing. if your in for the long run to make 10X more than it is now price right now is a buying opportunity if you sold or are mad consider it a learning lesson.

Looking at this chart, you can see how a decade ago gold was rising in price. Then reality TV had shows like Yukon gold, et al starting. Those shows had hardscrabble miners eeking out a living trying to get by with their old Caterpillars needing 100 ounces to make the $160,000 budget. If they made 200 ounces, it was a good season and the five miners made $30,000 each in the summer season. Sarah Palin had a show of eight episodes that in one had them rent a boat, SCUBA, and other diving gear and vacuum up gold from the Bering Sea bottom. She found enough to make a medallion that was inset into her father's rifle stock if I recall correctly.

What did not make good TV was the well-capitalized companies the TV producers flew over that had multimillion-dollar rigs that scooped up 100 ounces per day. But these rigs may have needed gold to be priced @ $1,600 to break even. As gold output knocked the price down, the big rigs shut down.

This chart may well look like BTC but BTC would be more time compressed. We see that @ $1,600 the high price draws more miners. It looks like the $1800 top looks like BTC at its top. This is when BTC went public. Anyone who bought their BTC @ $10,000 and up is now losing money.

I used to own land with an old gold mine on it. I advertised it on some prospecting paper and a couple came out and panned for a day. They enjoyed a day in the sunshine and fresh air but did not make minimum wage. I still have the black sand with tiny flecks of gold.

As the BTC get fewer and farther in between, the cheap electricity plants will again not break even and get shut down.




Long-term gold hart, adjusted for inflation.


These are interesting charts. We will have to see how a finite thing like one of 21 million BTC performs.

BTW, never, ever buy diamonds as an investment. Engagement ring, Okay but big money, no way. In 1979 DeBeers was pushing "investment grade" one-carat perfect diamonds for $20,000. Then Austrailia finds a mountain of diamonds and sells "Austrailian Pink" diamonds. DeBeers is pimping a new investment but since about 2004 humans learned how to make diamonds.

Happy mining!

How to Buy & Sell Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies

BY BRUCE BLYTHE
MARCH 6, 2018

Binary: Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, and risks


To buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, or to sell (or to avoid them altogether)? As digital currencies and the blockchain technology underpinning them move into the mainstream, it’s a natural question many individual investors and traders are surely asking themselves these days.

But learning how to buy Bitcoin is just the tip of the due diligence iceberg. Investors should preface any cryptocurrency purchases with several other questions, considering how rapidly cryptocurrency markets are growing, the rapid price fluctuations and the absence of hard rules and regulations governing these instruments.

Before trading or investing in Bitcoin, Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies, know what you’re getting into and research the vast array of options (which seem to be increasing every day). Let's look at a few basic questions.

Wow, this whole "scam" they call cryptocurrency has now sucked in the largest, most successful investors of all time! Eventually all the doubters and simple minded people might get it. In the meantime, I'll be accumulating for the next big run-up.

Long-term gold hart, adjusted for inflation.


The most recent surge in gold's price (about 2003-2011) I'd attribute largely due to the introduction of gold ETF's. They allowed any type of investor with and level of investing knowledge to easy invest in gold for the first time. Price quadrupled. I think BTC's chart will look very similar to gold's from 1970 on once a bitcoin ETF comes out. Except bitcoin will probably 4x or more in a matter of weeks or months, maybe a year (versus the 8 year buildup gold took).

It's the only thing holding crypto back in my opinion (well that and uncertainty of regulation, which is also what's holding up a bitcoin ETF currently) It's not an easy thing for most people to just go out and buy, invest, or trade cryptocurrencies currently. I'm fairly young (30), grew up using computers, am fairly tech savvy, and yet I didn't begin buying bitcoin until fairly recently. I spent over a month researching and learning, and looking for a good entry point before jumping in around 8k. And it has still been a learning curve trading on exchanges ( And I was a finance major).
My point is, it has taken me 4 months of daily researching to feel very comfortable with it all. 99% of people don't have that much time or desire to learn it all, they just want a piece, want to see unreal returns, but are worried they will lose it all but either sending to the wrong address, losing their keys, being hacked, government taking it, or price dropping to zero. And rightfully so. All those things are possible, but very unlikely once you understand it all. SO, in order to alleviate these concerns for the majority of people, it needs to be much easier and simpler to buy and sell. In come ETF's. Trade it like a stock; easy-peasy-Lamborghini!

By Jove, I think you have it. It is still easy to screw up and send the wrong currency to your wallet and have it lost forever. I heard a little Glenn Beck Thursday and he seemed to be pimping buying the blockchain then I lost signal.

He advised buying gold at $700 so maybe his followers starting buying. BTC was $7517 when I heard him.

‘OK, I’ll say it: bitcoin is a scam,’ says the former CEO of PayPal and Intuit

MarketWatch
Shawn Langlois

Bitcoin has enjoyed a nice stretch lately, breaking through the $9,000 level on Tuesday and leading a broad advance in the crypto space, which has seen a $100-billion surge in market cap to $425 billion over the past week.

So, Bill Harris, are you warming up to bitcoin as an investment?

‘It’s a colossal pump-and-dump scheme, the likes of which the world has never seen... the losers are ill-informed buyers caught up in the spiral of greed. The result is a massive transfer of wealth from ordinary families to internet promoters.’ — Bill Harris

We’ll take that as a no.

Clearly, Harris, the founder of Personal Capital Corp. who served as CEO at both PayPal (PYPL) and Intuit (INTU) is not a fan, and he laid out the reasons why Tuesday in a piece for Recode.

“I’m tired of saying, ‘Be careful, it’s speculative.’ Then, ‘Be careful, it’s gambling.’ Then, ‘Be careful, it’s a bubble.’” Harris continued. “Okay, I’ll say it: bitcoin is a scam.”

He went on to refute all the reasons promoters claim it has value. It’s not a means of payment since it’s accepted almost nowhere, he said. Bitcoin’s (BTCUSD) extreme volatility makes it undesirable as a store of value. And finally, he said its perceived value is merely an example of the Greater Fool Theory.

“Cryptocurrency is best-suited for one use: Criminal activity,” Harris said, pointing to the likes of Silk Road and WannaCry ransomware. What’s more, even the regular users are flouting the law, he says, by avoiding paying taxes on every sale.

“All of this would be a comic sideshow if innocent people weren’t at risk,” he said. “But ordinary people are investing some of their life savings in cryptocurrency.”

In conclusion, he called on the SEC and other regulators to step in. “It’s time we gave them the legislative authority to do their job,”: he said.

Coming from CEO of Paypal, who stands to lose his entire 3% business model which crypto can do at a fraction of the cost of Paypal, Mastercard, Visa processors, not a surprise.

I do agree with some regulation being needed for it to become mainstream.

Main problem with crypto over a credit card is no way to dispute charges, once the money is gone from your account, good bye.

Dear Roofies; under the heading of now-is-now, it is time for me to move some money into sportsbooks for summer horse racing, NBA, then football.

What wallet would you recommend for day-to-day trading use to Bookmaker, 5dimes, etc.? BetOnline was easy to use.

BetOnline was very easy to use. It took the $USD in my account and sent BTC to my coinbase.com account. But Coinbase then charged $173.xx fee to sell BTC -----> into $USD which I sent to my local bank. I guess the better idea is to never sell BTC but rather move it around.

Bookmaker has a page that reads "We have moved bitcoin ...." it points to Bookmaker.secureprivate.com/deposit/startTransaction/CRYPTOScreen/AskInform" target="_blank">Cashier

If coinbase will work, I am set. If not, that is the question. Where to go?

It is still possible to send the right coin to the wrong address and it is in the great Galactic void.

Winklevoss tells Gates to "put your money where your mouth is."

Gates is all mouth. Someone should tell old Bill this isn't like short selling a stock. You can't sell shares you don't even own to drop the price until you run a company out of business (one of the biggest scams ever created for rich hedge fund managers). So good luck breaking bitcoin.

Scott Adams posts a Dilbert when BTC was $92.54 in July, 2013


I am not sure why I got this email but let's share:

Dear prospective investor,

April closed at +73% , the third best result ever.

Will we see a retracement of the market? Will the market accelerate further? We don't know. Nobody can predict the future.
Let’s recall what happened in 2017:

- March: +66%

- April: +60%

- May: +153%



The big players have just started to enter the market: George Soros, Rockefellers, Rothschilds; Nasdaq is considering opening a cryptocurrency exchange:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/25/nasd...-exchange-ceo- says.html; Amazon is studying the introduction of cryptocurrency payments...


Yet, 90% of investors don't even know what the Blockchain is. There is still an enormous space for growth, for those smart enough to enter early:

The Chasm is being crossed now.


Cryptos Fund is the bridge over the Chasm. It allows to participate in the entire Blockchain market with reduced risk and volatility, with minimum costs and maximum security.
