Thankfully nothing too bad, but when I hit €20k I thought all of a sudden oh no this is a lot of money that I can't afford to lose. Told a friend and he was like yeah bro sell.

So I sold 4 eth €1000 and 400 Link qt €20.

Right after selling my link I realised how retarded I was and that it was a panic sell that I swore never to do again. So I rebought my link stack and actually have about 80 more now.
If I hadn't sold I'd be up maybe €5,000 higher. Bad decision but I think the paper part of me died that day. Now I dont even think of selling, in fact I just want to keep buying. Probably a good lesson overall. Wagmi

Hindsight is 20/20. it's easy to say that now, but as someone who was around at the genesis of bitcoin I can tell you it wasn't at all obvious what was going to happen. I knew about bitcoin when it was just some computer nerd shit. It was this unknown computer """"money"""" that anons used to send each other for free because it was literally worthless. Seeing all that actually did more harm than good for me. Seeing it initially as a joke, a meme, and worthless framed my perception of it in such a way that I wasn't taking it seriously until it was already priced out of the average person's hands. So don't be so sure you'd have been so gung ho about it.

trying to trade. i should never have listened to crypto twitter, or anyone else, or joined paid trading groups. if i had just held what i first bought i could have been a millionaire. instead, in 2017, after the first big dip i experienced when bitcoin crashed after first reaching $3k i sold all my shit at a 70% loss (the bottom). then i started to try trading. i made a lot of money, sure, but nowhere near how much i could have made just by holding and doing nothing.

my next big regret is shorting bitcoin at $6 the second time it visited the area in 2018. almost liquidated my whole account.

my third biggest regret is not buying the dip during the corona crash and ignoring btc for almost a year. i stayed up all night watching it crash and decided to go to sleep at 2am figuring that whatever happened we would crab at low figures for a while. i woke up to a 40% pump at which point i figured it was overpumped. then i stubbornly ignored the whole market for almost a whole year as my depression worsened. (although, that said. what i intended to buy was eos. i had the low marked on my chart to the cent. had i bought eos at that price it would have been a phenomenal entry, though my gains after a year would be nothing compared to if i had just bought btc or eos at the same time).

Just as an example, I made COUNTLESS threads on a low cap gem that had some news coming in the pipeline, and not a single response to any of my threads other than myself bumping some of them one time each, etc. Literally the day after I posted one of my threads it shot up 3x overnight from 5m market cap to 17m.
Then people get interested once they see that its up 250% in one day.
When things are red and/or flat, people aren't interested. But that's often times the best time to buy.
Of course this isn't a one-size-fits-all type of thing, but I'd say to answer your question it's because people are more drawn to green candles. I'm sure those same projects you saw up 2-3x right before you looked into them, you probably scrolled right past the thread when it was either red or flat for days/weeks/months beforehand. The hard part is doing your due diligence and forming a conviction on something that you truly believe (and researched) that will do well.
Another possibility is that you may be seeing various pump and dumps, which can happen with a scam project or with a legitimate project that just so happened to be targeted by a group of PnDers trying to make a quick buck. But PnD's are another story and I'd say the majority of what youre talking about can be answered by my response before this paragraph.

Knowing early on, and each year thinking many times over I should buy. Yet I don't beat myself up over it as I wasn't in a situation to 'lose' that possible money in a sketchy investment, because I had a young family.

Same. I remember thinking I would KMS if LINK mooned and I never bought any despite all the shilling on biz. So I bought 1000 at $0.25 in like December 2017, then sold most of my portfolio after the crash in Jan 2018.

So you are extremely lucky when finding 100x+ projects, but you are extremely unlucky on which you choose to gamble on long term

Yeah this makes sense up to a point. I know that occasionally there are posts that are actually early. Personally, I always spend at least a few minutes looking into every project I see shilled, even obvious scams, just to be sure.
My basic criteria are market cap below $2m and no hockey-stick graph. I have done pretty well on this, but I have never hit a 10x or above, not even once. Also, I don't ever believe it when someone claims a project with $500m MC will 10x so I usually don't bother with mid to high MC tokens (besides PRQ).

Held all my crypto during the digibyte era on an exchange (POLONISHIT), got fucked over and lost 100x profit from a small investment.

Also not staying on /biz/ and in crypto.

Runner up is not listening to my buddy and buying Monero when it was upcoming and very low.

Now I'm a broke, indebt student with no source of income in the middle of a global panasonic.

yeah, something like this. Maybe I should just set up a separate portfolio where I do the opposite of what I do in my main portfolio

oh btw, I sold POLS a few days ago at $3, and now it is already over $5
just watch it go on an insane run to $30+ over the next weeks

Sold UNI when the airdrop hit. Bought back, sold when it started dumping. Didn't buy back in before it went parabolic.

selling monero after it dumped to 120$
selling btc at 14k, hoping to rebuy

yet somehow I have more money than I invested despite knowing nothing about economy.

I pretty much made all the mistakes you can do in 2017/2018. Tried to swing btc, chased moonshots buying them on top and never sold my shitcoins after making some profits. This time around i have done pretty well for myself and i am happy with that, however it does sting to think that if i didn't make the mistakes i did, i would have made it by now.
