I'm almost going to buy a few. Might buy another cryptocurrency like Ripple or Ethereum.

I own some BTC. It's basically a currency not backed by anything but people's belief that it is worth something. It's obtained by exchanging oyher currency for it or using processing power to solve calculations and earn little bits of it at a time.

It's going to go up and down similar to a stock and will rise and fall based on events the happen in the world relating to the currency. For example, it dropped recently because someone who had a large portion of the lite coins (another crypotcurrency often traded for BTC) in circulation sold it all.

It's a gamble like any other investment but as it is high risk, never put in more than you are willing to lose.

If you buy it or other crypotcurrency, PLEASE PLEASE use coinbase. It's the most safe exchange and isn't a scam like so many of the other ones are.

This.

Party is over now.

It is an incredibly speculative gamble, currently.

BUT THIS IS WHAT IT IS NOT: "It's a gamble like any other investment..."

Bitcoin is only worth what someone else is willing to pay. You're not investing in a company, like when you buy stock. You're basically exchanging USD for a digital "currency" that may or may not be worth any money soon. You can invest in gold and own gold. You can invest in a mutual fund and own fractional shares of lots of companies. "Investing" in bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency is not like that at all.

Yes, some people have become quite wealthy from it. Doesn't mean its a good place to put your money.

Definitely do not use more money than you are okay with loosing. Just like sitting down at the blackjack table.

I'd be willing to bet that traditional financial institutions are a bit concerned about being cut out of the very processes that they up until now have owned.

Sending money home by immigrants is one heck of a business and BitCoin reduces the time and cost. What used to take days now take minutes and 10%+ in charges has been reduced to 2 or 3%. If you think BitCoin has been publically trashed before you "ain't seen nothing, yet".

That's no doubt some significant portion of the controversy. I've read interviews by people from major financial institutions, pushing major, glaring misunderstandings about Bitcoins. Do they really know that little, or is it just part of doing business to spread a little manure? wink

It's a risk like any thing but I've got coinbase and I've made$6,000 so far. Last couple weeks I lost some of my profit but I'm still way in the green. I have a system when I about double my money I pull out my profit and let the principal make money again. I've done ok so far. Ive made more off litecoin than any of them.

Seems like a scam to me.

Some will time it perfectly and others will get burned.

It exists in a small world where people speak of it as if it was a viable thing.

80% of the computers which administer it are in China. And do not forget that the same coterie "mines" them.

Hey, I'm not hep at all but I know when something stinks and when speakers obfuscate. NOBODY can answer any Bitcoin question with certainty.

Maybe it's like the old comedy bit about "Diamonique" jewelry....it's OK if you can pay with moneyola.

That's it, Bitcoin is moneyola!

You do realize a week before that it was sub 10k?

That correction was needed. Too many people buying in at the moment with no idea of what it does.

Doesn't matter to me. If it continues like it has for another 41 days, I'll never work again in my life.

Not bad for an initial $63 investment.

What are your questions? It's open source, just look at the source code.

China banned bitcoin a while ago.

As to where it ends, who knows, some claim 500k, others 0.
