They won't get excited ever again; they see it as a scam. They don't even understand how much money they missed since BTC hit 15,000

Not sure about that, what I do know is that most of us made some money (again)

I just had a meeting with some prospects who mentioned owning some gold (presumably paper), to which my partner and I responded with something along the lines of "well, btc just hit 60k again", which caused him to recoil in disgust and ask why we even brought that up. Granted, he was a mega-boomer who brought his two adult sons to the meeting (one of which was gay) and self-identified as a "proud democrat", so the man certainly enthusiastically rims the state whenever he's asked to. And given how one of the original value-props of crypto was to remove some power of the state, his reaction was unsurprising. But his immediate emotional response to what is certainly the only thing in crypto that he could even name gave away just how unwilling he was to give the technology an objective look. His two sons were much more interested, though neither had so much as dabbled in it.

They were like that after both of the most recent two cycles. They've got a very short memory.

I'm going to guess that, once a sexy enough-looking number is reached, that sentiment will disappear. Then something stupid will happen that the propagandists will jump on, and the sentiment will come back until the next ATH.

No they will
Normies just cannot save money
They cannot fathom holding wealth (in any form) for years
They always have to spend all of their paycheck immediately
When crypto is going up fast enough where they think they can make money in between paychecks, they will buy.

Going to a sammy virji show tonight. Most of the guys I'm going with were super into crypto in the last bull run (I would talk to them about it a bit, but nowhere near how much they would talk about it).

I haven't seen any of em in a while so I'm REALLY hoping at least one of them mentions it. Maybe I'll bring it up first to see if anyone jumps on the subject.

no mention whatsoever. crypto in normie's eyes was just a fad, a current thing, they temporarily liked until the system programmed them with something else to care about.
normies will be funneled back in once all the institutions have accumulated their desired positions. my guess is the true rally will begin late summer. now is still a good time to buy in.

Got 1 DM so far from a mate who is "considering" investing even though I was shilling the ETF to him at 40k. After I got done talking to him about it he said he'll "consider it more" AKA he won't pull the trigger until we're past ATH.
I can guarantee you normies will start paying attention at new ATH, consider investing, but won't pull the trigger until 100k or so =)

That makes me wonder, since I haven't been too involved with this stuff for all that long: Was the most recent cycle the only time BTC has really gotten a huge amount of retail investors involved?

It may have been the exception rather than the rule, given all the money being printed willynilly. The fact that we're 90+% to ATH without anyone having really noticed could speak to that.

Disregard that, my mom asked, I got her a filthy Coinbase and Binance account because it was somewhat user friendly. She first nagged me about the whole bloody season we were in, and then recently asked me what was going on.
Ofcourse, like the plep she is, she wants to buy more at these levels, not at -50%.
What do? I don't worry, but she will, when she sees "her money being flushed away to hackers"

Yes. Tail end of 2017 the retail demand at the peak couldn't even be serviced because coinbase and binance shit themselves, incapable of handling the sheer volume of inbound applications. 2021 had enough ports of entry for those interested to get in to do so, plus the free money, plus being locked in their homes with nothing to do. Kinda a perfect storm of factors

* My accounting friend who's been sidelined since 15k (and waiting for 8k btw) is barely now feeling the FOMO at 60k.
* My brother who asked me to invest for him at 16k just yesterday sent me a message about the Bitcoin price.
I think we've hit a local top and will crab here +/- 10% until the halving. There will be no immediate BTC pump at the halving and we'll instead see an altcoin rally. This will cause all new BTC entries to capitulate and rotate into alts.
