Default Any of y'all know anything about bitcoin?

For those who don't know, it's something known as a crypto currency. It's an electronic currency primarily used on the deep web. At deep web marketplaces. The type of marketplaces that sell drugs, counterfeit cash, stolen credit cards, you name it. Hell even a hit man if you're so inclined. And among other possibly (very) unsavory things. The allure of the bitcoin is that it's seen as untraceable. Thus the reason it's used so often for illegal purchases.

Anyway, bitcoin, during it's infancy, was worth only a fraction of a penny. Now, a single bitcoin is going for $2,300 dollars.

So I was listening to some dudes talk about it on the radio yesterday -- and according to them, if one had bought $100 worth of bitcoin back during it's infancy, that same $100 would now be worth an estimated 73 millions dollars.

In fact there's a pretty infamous story about a college kid who was doing a research paper on the concept of crypto currencies back when he was in college, and bought something like $20 worth of bitcoin. Back when it was worth just a fraction of a penny. He did his research paper and forgot about the bitcoin he had. A few years later, he was watching the national news, and they did a story on how bitcoin was blowing up. Until then he had completely forgot about them. Well that quickly jogged his memory, and when he went to check how much his bitcoin was now worth -- well...it was now worth some 1 million dollars.

But for every story like this there are probably a whole host of nightmare ones -- like one where a guy had a lot of bitcoin stored on an old computer -- forgot about them, and ended up throwing that old computer away where the bitcoin was stored on. The guy lost, supposedly, literally millions of dollars.

But yeah. Anyway, one single bitcoin is now selling at $2,300 USD. I remember checking the price of bitcoins...I don't know, it was like roughly a year and a half ago I think. At that time it was going for $300 give or take. Now, just some 18 months later, it's going for 8 times as much.

***** is cray, bruh.

I was telling people last month when it was at $1,200 it was gonna hit $2,000 this year. Admittedly I didn't think it would happen 30 days later doe.

Quote:
And even if you purchased some coins in the last 6 months they've almost doubled in price ($700ish to $1,200ish).

I'm expecting it to hit $2,000 this year sometime & I've heard CRAZZZZZZZY numbers like each bitcoin being worth $10,000 to $100,000 eventually & honestly it doesn't seem THAT crazy to me.

Pretty wild *****, dude.

Can it continue to climb? Or is it due for a big crash?

I know this one guy who keeps talking about some new crypto currency called "monero". He swears by it and says that bitcoin will eventually crash and burn. Says that it has a lot of disadvantages to it that monero doesn't have. And that when it (bitcoin) crashes, monero will be the one next in line ready for explosion. Now granted this is just one guy's completely speculative opinion, but he is a smart guy -- and back when he was telling me this ***** monero was selling at $15. This was a few months ago. Now it's approaching $50.

Supposedly he has invested quite a bit into it.

The Russians use it to do a lot of their shady money exchange especially since they are under sanctions now. That's what's really driving the value.

There's actually an insane number of coins if you check out coinmarketcap.com which is kinda like a overview of what all the coins are doing. So a BUNCH of them are gonna fail. A lot of them basically do fail & just kinda linger around being worth pennies or fractions of fractions of pennies per coins.

Its completely possible BTC comes crashing down at some point, but personally I don't think its happening anytime soon. I'm thinking $5K per coin is possible now & sh^t maybe this year.

Right now I think the player to watch is a coin called Ethereum. Its getting mainstream usage. It was worth $25ish about 3 months ago & today its at $179. A lot of people think its the best bet to overtake or compete with BTC.

There's also a coin called Tezos that's coming out this week that's getting a lot of mainstream interest that I'm keeping my eye on, but not sold on entirely

I have coinbase and block chain account. I only use bitcoin to withdraw money from online poker. I dont leave my bitcoin in coinbase and wait for it to go up or down. I just withdraw/sell it right away as soon as poker transfer the funds. So far my experience with bitcoin is not good because I'm losing around 4% in fees every transaction.

Maybe next time I make withdrawal in poker, I'd leave the bitcoin at coinbase for a month or 2 and see if it goes up.

Panda, where do you save your bitcoin at?

I had some bitcoin when it was worth $700 a piece and sold when it got to $1,200 or so. I can't believe how high it's gotten since then.
