i told my brother to buy bitcoin back in dec 2022 when bitcoin was somewhere around $16k each, he keeps messaging me about bitcoin lately and how he regrets not buying, yesterday he told me he was waiting for ath before buying just to be sure...

what i want to say with all of that is that normies like my brother are retarded when it comes to investment but as soon as bitcoin surpasses ath they will all jump in, late, as usual.

i usually would feel bad for my brother but as he already makes tons of money (hes a doctor) i don't really care if he gets in or not, he made it already

strange. i worked in software too and about 10 persons of the 40 person dev team bought.

in 2016 i worked in a different company and in a devops team and one guy said how someone accidently sent him 32 ETH ( random transaction to his exchange account.) ethereum was 10 bux at the time.

i wasn't really paying attention and boughted in summer of 2017. luckely i also solded in january 2018 which was the end of the roon. and then i started buying back in from March ( way too soon) and bought a lot of shitcoins (was convinced bitcoin was the shitcoin lmao). mistakes were made. but all in all entering the market has been a positive for me. actually very positive. i didn't work the past 3 years and travelled europe

It's like I thought. Normies will start "considering" investing near ATH (now) and then not pull the trigger until we're well past the previous ATH (75-80k+).

>Can't even be a free thinker because if you stray from medical guidelines even once or twice they'll take your license away and everything you worked for will be for nothing.

Your brother is an idiot. Most doctors do not have high IQ's. All they do is follow directions and become robots, basically. That's why you see so many doctors go full blown psycho and start murdering patients because the process of becoming and then being a doctor literally turns you into a psychopath lmao.

They're noticing the movement probably because it was on the news. I tip off my friends and family to buy through the lows (like 20s this time) and I tell them when I sell in the peak.
>no one is buying except for one who was a previous buyer of her own accord
>the sentiment is a lot less skeptical, more of a simple ignorance
>none really understand it or the investment theory

I think people underestimate how involved the average nigga is with financial markets in general. They are not autistically refreshing charts and getting move alerts. So while you may have noticed early price action they will not until someone tells them, which is going to be the media, and only when the story is so big it makes it to the headline, not just financial press.

Anon. Most Doctors study medicine because they actually like doing it. You do what you love and get paid in top of that. The ones that do it for status/money are miserable because it's literally not worth it. You would be better off doing anything BUT medicine.

this is true. Medicine is in a 100 year long bubble. Medical Doctors are the biggest NPCs, they are unironically bigger midwits than your average gender studies Stacy. The fair status of a practicing physician lies somewhere between a farmer and a mechanic
