Yall still looking at this?

 

Looks like Bitcoin, in and off itself, has held steady at $8k-$10k since its big swing not too long ago. Intriguing.

FWIW, Bitcoin is around $7k and has really not had any significant movement in a really, really long time.

If/when it bounces down to $5K, I'm getting some more... there's a pattern....

Bitcoin hasn't gone below $5,000 since it surpassed that balance.

 

Not saying that there isn't an ebb and flow...I'm just saying that a passage back below $5k probably implies regulation on the horizon.

Its value is psychological... lots of blips could send it down briefly....  we'll see....

Interesting article about people who are bitcoin multimillionaires, but have forgotten their passwords.

I thought I was late to the party when I spent $300 on Ethereum at just under $1,750 a coin on March 22. Just now my $300 buy hit $400.

You happen to have any Dogecoin?!?

Only up 54% today.

Percentages for 3 months and a year are insane.

As a matter of fact, I do. Well, sort of....I invested in it via Robinhood, so you don’t technically own it, you can only buy and sell it on their platform. But yeah, Elon Musk must have been tweeting about it today. Looking over my Coinbase wallet, crypto in general really had itself a day.

 

Speaking of Coinbase, a reminder to all they go public tomorrow. It’s a direct listing, and share prices will be referenced at $250. That’s a $50 billion valuation!

I put a whopping $30 into Doge in the same manner. Now with $107.

Also have much more into ETH and some in Litecoin.

Obviously anyone that invested a nice chunk of change into bitcoin a while back is sitting really pretty.

I was way late on Bitcoin. Figured it for a passing fad. 10 years and about $63,000 later, here we are.

 

Also a bit late on ETH, since to get in on staking when they go to Ethereum 2.0 you need at least 32 to stake. I’ll be about $60,000 short of what I need.

 

I’m rolling the dice on Cardano. Like Ethereum it’s a proof-of-stake currency and you’ll be able to write smart contracts on the blockchain. And at ~$1.50 right now it’s priced just right for value.

Bought $100 of Bitcoin on PayPal in late December and it's doubled since then.

 

I haven't looked into selling but I was thinking of waiting until it gets to $250 and withdrawing $150 and leaving the initial $100 in there. I was thinking of using it as a ATM of sorts, just take money from the account as it grows and leaving the initial $100 in there. 

 

Can this be done? If you sell, do you have to cash out the entire account? Or can you do it piecemeal like I want to?


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Just keep in mind that if you withdraw money, you need to pay taxes on any gains.
