When you were the reserve bank and you didn’t even realize it

I remember buying 2 BTC for ETH ico – 4k eth at that time… And instead, I bought few bags of other shitcoin which are worthless right now
1,700 bitcoin is worth almost $20 million today
Has anyone checked his local obituaries?
Gotta love bitcoin Greg. Someone needs to interview him today
Man I wish I had a fuckin time machine
$408 profit. Barely enough for a 3D-printed lambo.
Umm so who’s gonna break it to him it’s gone up slightly since?
Everyone likes these “I wish I kept” posts but that’s at the infancy of the thing. Now it’s so blown up, is there even a way further? I doubt we’d be seeing even bigger gains down the line. It can’t always just go up, can it?
So many people seem to think in black and white terms – either HODL or sell
Personally I think it makes sense to do both. Sell a proportion every year when you are in profit or if you have a good use for the money. This could mean selling 50% per year or 10% per depending on your goals
Lukewarm believing early adopters being shaken out is great for a less concentrated coin distribution.
Remember to never go full fiat, even if you want to completely cash out at least leave behind 5% just in case.
20 years later: I wish I had kept my btc at $11k now they’re at $100k …
Such regrets are everywhere. It’s never late to invest
I got say I want to sell by the end of next year at the top on the halving value. But I fear I will regret it when it goes to 1 million
he paid $102, to sell for $510, to regret not making $13600, which are currently valued at $19,304,469 (BTC price 11,355.570).
$19 342 498.00 (18963233.333%)
I don’t think that is a healthy mentality. What if that money changed his life at the time?
What I take away from this is that even the people who got into btc back in 2010/2011 would have only amassed a few thousand btc under $1 like this guy, and most of these lucky people (also like this guy) would have sold a large majority of those coins between $1 and $100.
Most of the super early adopters like this guy would currently have 100 btc at most, not 1000 anymore.
The only non-corporate individuals with more than 1000 btc would be the lunatic fringe fanatics and developers of which there were only a handful. For the rest of us it would be a miracle to have more than 100 btc, epic to have more than 10 btc and currently extremely good for your future if you have 1 btc.
Remember that soon having one whole bitcoin will be considered an extreme display of wealth if not the epitome of wealth exhibition.
Jeez… I wish I had even heard of bitcoin when it was at $.30!! Or 8$ for that matter!
So people wish to just hold their BTC in case it reaches $1000000000?
That sucks. Could you sell that many full coins without adversely effecting the price?
I mined about 30 coins back in the mid 2000’s and figured the hard drive was worthless. Some old 40 GB IDE drive that I threw in the trash. How many old drives sit at the bottom of landfills with bitcoins on them. That f’ing hard drive would pay off my mortgage now. No use crying over spilled milk.
Only in 8 years Greg would have had approx 20 million crazy. It will still be true for anyone holding 9 years from today
BitCoin – “If you don’t have regrets you’re doing it wrong.”
Just set this as my cell lock screen wallpaper …
17 milli. Soon to be 170 milli.
