    Hit 17K last night before sliding back to 15K. Up 1000% this year. Wall street about to open a futures market so you can short/go long the price.

    I heard that it briefly hit 19k on other techie sites - incredible. I usually just watch CoinBase but it is always lower than the rest. Sold my 20 bit coins at $400 each (at a loss to boot) - biggest investment mistake of my life but good thing - dh doesn't listen to me about his bit coins. Moved some money in from checking but it took 12 days to transfer! By then it had started its move up (was waiting for it to drop and it never did) and won't buy at this price. Please remind me next time to take my own advice.

    It's very volatile but imo, it won't crash. People will jump in before the price gets too low - too many people are talking about it. The only way I see a crash is if somewhere like CoinBase gets wiped out by hackers.

    I still have no clue how bitcoin works or even what the it is, and I’ve done hours of research into it In 30 years I’m going to be the modern day equivalent of a guy stuffing his life savings under his mattress.

    Yeah, but it survived didn't it - and look at where it is now - that's the risk of an untraceable currency. And at this price, you can be sure the hackers are gonna be out in FULL FORCE - that's why I've suggested to dh that he split his up and put on different sites so it's less vulnerable.

    But if the stock market is getting in on bitcoin, it'll just make it more available to the common person - instead of this 12 day transfer to CoinBase - it was me being penny-wise and pound foolish - didn't want to spend the $25 for wire transfer - just didn't know it would take that long!

    The article doesn't say $60 million (it says $300 million) nor that it's a mtGox total loss nor that it was bit coin (it was ether) - go back to sleep, bou, you're not fully awake.

    When I see the way my kids and their friends pay each other back (electronically - instead of cash), I think it's the way of the future. These young people just don't want to be bothered with something like cash. Me - I'm the opposite - I like cash - nobody can tell what I spend my money on, I can't overspend and dh insists on having emergency money in the safe in case of I don't know what - just like he didn't want me to sell my gold jewelry when gold was $1800 an ounce (he took him mom and aunt down to the Siebold building to sell theirs though).

    Rocky:. Bullwinkle, why do you keep your money in your mattress?
    Bullwinkle:. Because I want to keep it safe.
    Rocky: Why don't you keep it in a bank?
    Bullwinkle: Banks don't take mattress, silly.

    Here comes a downward swing - down to $14,288 on CoinBase. Of course, the question is how low will it go?

    It Is No Longer Worth It To Build An Ethereum Mining Rig


    Building an Ethereum mining rig hasn’t been worth it for months, and soon they will be completely obsolete.

    Imo, don't waste your money on mining rigs. Set a limit buy order on gdax.com (coinbase) when it drops below $13k (which it did this weekend) and limit sell order at whatever x% profit you are happy with - don't get greedy. I think it went to around 14250? Take the profit and rinse and repeat. Don't do this with money you can't afford to lose.
