Quote from: Kolchak on April 19, 2018, 10:15:13 PMI started to type a reply to this MV quote, but thought better of it:I didn't want to muck up the MITD thread with this, so I'll post it here. I got into Bitcoin at $50. I sold all my bitcoin years ago when it was $250 and began to crash. I regret it to this day.Afterwards, I purchased Litecoin at $30 and pledged to hold onto it, despite the turbulence of the crypto markets. The all time high was $400. As of this post, each Litecoin is around $149. I think it'll surpass that all time high soon. Either way, I hope this serves as the officlal Bellgab Crypto thread, if anyone else here is into it.

Quote from: WOTR on January 14, 2021, 03:55:20 AMI know there is another thread somewhere on BG about crypto... I have been a fan for years. And I believe there is value. Similar to gold / silver, it cannot be printed like the dollar. However, the recent rise seems to be just money pouring in from speculation rather than fundamentals. I wish it were people actually adopting it for use. But that does not seem to be the case. Just speculators and hedge funds looking for a place to stuff some of their worthless paper fiat. I kind of disliked it when it got listed and funds started buying. The attractive idea for me was that it was divorced from worthless paper- and then it got taken over by wall street instead of "nerds and geeks." I still like the idea. But time will tell if $40,000 is a realistic valuation. I guess I have seen the gold bulls predict $10,000 gold every year for the last decade. To see predictions of $100,000 Btc by the end of the year leaves me skeptical. But hey... Why not? Let those 3060 cards hash out some Ether while they sit idle.
Quote from: albrecht on January 15, 2021, 09:33:14 AMI know someone who got hacked several years ago. The crooks locked up his computer and he had to buy Bitcoin to pay them off. This was before all the news stories about it. Anyway took him a while but he finally figured out how to buy BitCoin and bought some and paid off the crooks. About $500. Anyway he was left over some partial BitCoin. He checked recently and his partial is somewhere around $8K. So, inadvertently, the hackers made him money! (And to their limited credit, they did unlocked his computer after receiving the payment.)
