I have been following Bitcoin for a couple years now, but have been too puss to buy any. I still don't own any, but I did start looking into Ethereum. I've been keeping an eye on Ethereum any other alt-coins. Anyone else involved in the alt-coin "game'?

Every time I tell myself to wait a bit for the BTC market to go down to buy, it spikes to a record high. After this last one, I decided to bite the bullet and invest a little, but I couldn't find a good service with low enough fees for the amount I want to invest. I just don't even want to think about it at this point, remembering seeing people sell BTC for chump change years ago makes me suicidal. And as of this post, I just checked the market and it's up another few hundred since I checked last week.

I don't know anything about other cryptocurrencies though.

Bitcoin has been the best currency to invest in this year, its price has ended in this second week of November above $ 7450 per Bitcoin, and has been fantastic in its movement, You know how much is one pip in derivatives of cryptocurrencies is too much, Its increase is due to many factors, one of which some financial institutions are trying to quote in them.

Well Bitcoin is now sitting at just over $8000. Pending a cataclysmic crash, I'm staying out of the BTC game. I've been following Ethereum and Komodo though and hoping ETH will eventually fall back down under $250. Wishing I had gotten into cryptocurrency back in 2012. sad.gif

Well, i've been thinking to buy some bitcoin as well with the money i've saved. My intent was to then get a reasonably big profit and buy myself a decent car but i think it's a bit too late for that now haha. I suggest you just look at other cryptocurrency that might be successful, but from what i've seen is that other cryptocurrency isn't as popular as bitcoin.

I've been thinking about buying myself about 25€ of ether to start with those cryptokitties purely for the money tho. I don't know if it's actually worth trying since i've heard a lot of negative comments about it too. Should i just buy ether and exchange when it's a good time to?

Warren Buffett's the only smart rich guy of his peers ..

Investing in actual physical stock is already a big enough risk .. let alone putting your financial stability on a video game like Final Fantasy currency ~ BTC is just gambling imo.

Serves them right and has nothing to do with the viability of BTC as an investment.

I'll retreat back into my hole now, as I hate contributing to the crypto hype by publicly discussing it.

What really pisses me off about virtual currencies are the fucking high prices for video cards they cause because of miners.

I'm of the opinion that every new generation finds crazier & crazier ways to spend the money they earn thru old fashioned physical labour. In the year 3000 AD ~ kids will probably be investing in the stock of Moon, Mars, or Jupiter rocks.

Personally I'm not opposed to spending or investing money on intangible goods like music or video games ~ because to me they're art .. ie. the actual product makes me feel good. But Bitcoin and other crypto currencies are more to me like a online poker game .. the pleasure it actually brings to you isn't in the product itself, but in watching your crypto numbers rise.

Back in 2007 I remember watching an episode of CrankyGeeks with Tech TV's John Dvorak ~ and remember thinking how amazing TrueCrypt & Cyber Security & Cryptography was .. I'm gonna leave this video here explaining how crypto currencies work for users that might stumble upon this topic and not have a clue what we're talking about:
