There is a disconnect from real money and crypto. When you lose crypto it feels like nothing because it's just internet tokens. It's like gambling in World of Warcraft. Especially true if your initial investment was very low years ago.

i see, i should probably keep playing around with trading tiny amounts of coins and see if i can build a profit from my initial investment instead of just hodling what i have in stocks.

im a 24 year old swedish factory worker. I save 1k a month after all essential expenses. depressed, exhausted and suicidal in the darkness of eternal winter. I have come back to /biz/ to see if i should put my entire networth into something small in the hopes of gambling my way out of wageslavery.

I bought a bunch of BTC to buy acid off the Silk Road back in 2012. $11/coin. The goods never arrived, funds sat in escrow, and then were refunded. I was sketched out so didn’t try again. They sat in a wallet on my PC until the first big run up in 2013, where I got all excited and sold my whole stack for $300/coin. I can’t say I regret it too much because I was a broke college kid at the time, it was a lot of money and fueled a lot of partying, the time and memories of youth that I wouldn’t trade. But man, who would have foreseen $30k for one BTC.

Of course I do. But there was just no reasonable scenario in which I would have held for years and really made it. I was far too young and foolish. I made a few grand at the time and thought I was rich. So easy to see in hindsight, but in 2013 Bitcoin was still fantasy internet money (still is actually), there was real and imminent fear that it would just drop to zero any day. The premise of it going to even $1k, let alone $30k, wasn’t even in the realm of imagination. Worth noting I cashed out through Mt. Gox, which notably went to shit like a year or two after, along with all of the BTC stored in wallets there. There was risk in other ways early on too, and very few had the foresight and stomach to hold through it for years.

I feel like the resident boomer of this thread because I have yet to see anyone mention anything pre-2017. *crack* *sip* you kids really do have no idea what it was like

Another anecdote; the way you got funds into an exchange back then was insanely primitive. I literally had to go to a CVS and wire money, cash, directly into a Mt.

I sold my LINK stack at $19.6 nearly perfectly predicting the top. I could have bought around 11 BTC at the time but instead waited weeks for LINK to crash, I eventually bought back into LINK at $14 or so. This is the mistake with the most opportunity cost, which is roughly $245,000. It stings a bit but if I'm being honest after seeing so much missed opportunity in crypto you come to the conclusion that if you look at things in these terms you'll be consistently disappointed. Instead I'm glad for having my six figure stack in the first place and learn from my mistakes.

Yes, it's the "tether fud", but please just give it a read, this is the official accusations and not some twitter accounts info or a retarded crypto newsflash. Tether is being sued based upon RICO act. The currency btc is traded in at 60% will soon be down. Make your own decision, maybe it could be qt least a good idea to take out your initial investment.

You know, I can't imagine being in this early. When I look at the graphs and see prices so low, I get jealous. Not just because of money, but because of what pioneers the early adopters were. They were on the precipice of something new and massive.

But that's just my fantasy. In reality none of you could even imagine what the future of btc was going to be and in a way you were in a shit spot simply because there was no way you'd hodl it out of some lunatic hope and essentially all you got was regret of not having done it.
