We all missed the train. I remember trading 100 of bitcoins to buy drugs on the original Silk Road.

I even remember looking at Litecoin back in the day and thinking what a fucking shitcoin who even buys that fucking shit and was pretty much sure nobody would even buy crypto after they busted the original Silk Road

>too autistic to speak my mind

Been my life so far. Does you gain more confidence with age/experience or will I forever be like this?

I'm only 25 and work in a blue collar field. I could easily automate 90% of my Manager's job and know what he's going to say before he even says it and can think of a hundred ways to do things better. But I'm too much of a sperg to talk to humans and don't feel confident enough to be somebody's boss.

Was invited to speak with my old boss about taking over a contract I worked for awhile back before quitting. I knew everybody and developed a good relationship with the people we worked for, and know what needs to be done for the contract to succeed. But now I'm getting cold feet and don't want to go speak to him.

not a larp. I also found /biz/ in 2016, and there were constant threads shilling 7-10$ ethereum. I had no money back when, so I didn't buy anything again. I only got in in early 2017. Made a killing that year, then lost most of it bagholding alts after the crash. I remember some anon said how he was making $100 a day trading crypto, that's what seriously got me into crypto

Was at the first cryptocurrency meeting in my city years ago. Knew this will change the world after a lot of research. Wanted to invest 30k at 1k in 2016 but had to work very hard, just finished college. Did a fast research for transferring money. Never did the transfer cause I tought with hard work in my new position I get also rich withot high risk. Justed.

You need to continue to push yourself. You will never grow or gain the confidence you obviously seek by becoming complacent. This sounds like an obvious move. You have a good relationship with everyone involved? How can you possibly pass on that and truly believe you'll ever take another opportunity?

fuck, now I remembered how I also mined doge then put it all in an online wallet that exit scammed later or just went offline for some reason. I had like 700k or so, maybe 70k. There was another shitcoin that I mined by that fag from RT news. It was called maxcoin or something, also got nothing from that.
The first decent money I made was from mining zcash at the start. I bought a bunch of free VPS servers. Mircosoft and google gave out accs with almost $500 of computational power for free. I signed up a bunch of accounts each on a different credit card. That was before there was a gpu miner. Made a few thousand bux that way by scamming microsoft azure and google cloud. Those were the fun times

Imagine being a fucking bullied nerd knowing about bitcoin in 2009/2010 and not making it cause you bought drugs on deep web, j while a stupid drug dealer went millionaire in 2017

You must be all so stupid, but in your defence it must be said: no one would have never imaged bitcoin to 20k...

Holy fuck anon are you me? Legit the EXACT same thing happened to me, glad to know it wasnt only me getting JUSTed.

Pic related. Sent this to my friend telling him i was finally going to buy.

Side story:
I was 'that guy' who knew about bitcoin in school. One day this asian kid i knew came up to me asking about bitcoin and if it was illegal to buy, long story short i showed him the basics of how to buy (kid was into forex) and after i gave up on trying to run a node on my shitty computer(2013 mt gox bubble) this kid kept at it and bought THE FUCKING ETHEREUM IPO. He even came up to me asking if he could use my bank to launder his proceeds since own got shutdown.

I first heard about bitcoin when 4chan passes rolled out and moot was accepting them as payment. Just thought it was some paypal type shit, didn't look into too much. Heard it being shilled on /pol/ during the 2013 bubble, looked at charts and learned a little bit about how it worked, talked to my gf about buying some, the bubble came and went before we actually took the plunge. Laughed to myself at this faggots that got burned. I'd check the price periodically and remember some reddit post about this guy talking about holding until 1 million, thought they were delusional. Finally decide to look into during the 2017 bubble, realize how important it is and that it's something that I would have been really interested in from a ideological perspective had I bothered to actually research it. Decide to wait until the market crashes to buy in, make my first buy @ $6k on february 4th, but put all my money in dumb altcoins and got completely fucking justed even though I timed my buy in perfectly.

Luckily I got LINK so I'm just waiting at this point and trying to not to sell to early, but also not trying to hold during a 90% downturn either.
