    Think about all the people who cashed out at $1k, or even $1. You did fine.
    Also it's never too late to cash in again and ride along. Just make sure not to put in too much as everything is hella unpredictable right now.

    I looked into Bitcoin about 5 years ago but it seemed like too much effort to throw money at it. Even if I had 'invested' I'd probably have gotten out too early.

    Should I get in now or wait for the next big thing?

    It depends. You want to lose money now, or later?

    Why not both?

    Given how cryptocurrency investment is going to open up to the main financial markets in a big way next year and bitcoin is the gold standard used to peg all cryptocurrencies, you are likely to see significant gains on bitcoin for at least another year. There will be some wobbles in its value (as always) but they will be temporary.

    2019 is when I'm expecting a real crash, due to over-investment from the main financial markets.

    Bitcoin at low levels is better treated as money you don't really need lost for a while until you remember to check and probably make some nice profit.

    Gets weird once you take it seriously.

    That was true until this happened, https://www.cryptokitties.co/

    Reports of kitties being traded for >100K$... Could this be a glimpse of what the matrix will look like - all the virtual things owned by 2011 bitcoin buyers?

    The highly popular game CryptoKitties has decreased its gas usage to around 12% of the network from peaks above 20%, with new lowered prices on the "breeding" smart contract. With the network congestion resolved, Ethereum spiked again after the recent slump.

    https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/a...razy-interview
    ...with more than $8 million USD spent on kitties so far according to one third-party site, the company has made at least $300,000 from the 3.75 percent cut it takes on every CryptoKitty trade alone. That’s not counting what the company makes from selling brand new kitties, which are minted every 15 minutes. .... “If they’re going to value or devalue in the future, I honestly don’t know.”

    If you take down the major platform for people actually using bitcoin it wouldn't really have been that smart to go long on the confiscated bitcoin.

    Plus organisations like the FBI aren't an investment vehicle.

    Estonia's e-residency programme apparently goes ahead with the proposed ICO.
    https://medium.com/e-residency-blog/...t-310aba7f3790

    First ICO by a government backed agency?

    The agency uses as consultant Ethereum funder Estonian Vitalik Buterin. Ethereum has in december gone up some 300%. I suspect the two facts are linked. IB4 investigation?

    One of the possible uses for the token is the holy grail of cryptocurrencies:
    3. The euro estcoin
    We’ve discussed models for estcoin that either increase or decrease in value, but what if we introduced estcoins and simply pegged their value to the euro? That’s how euro estcoins would work.
    A crypto pegged to € would immediately prevent banks from getting their commission on money transfers, this would have rather large ramifiications.

    Paying 100x as much to Chinese button miners to move currency would have large ramifications but they ain't positive or likely.

    True that. The idea obviously would work only with a super cheap transaction cost. Given that the exchange would be in tokens, and not coins, that is possible.

    Found an old HDD with my bitcoin wallet on it, currently trying various meditative avenues to remember the password

    I think crying and/or slamming my head into a wall are the best bets so far

    It's a good 7 years old or so, from the time when I talked my best mate (age 16ish) out of buying 10 BTC for £15 because "lol it'll never get big save your money"

    He still hasn't forgiven me and brings it up whenever crypto comes up in coversation

    BTC is still a pyramid scheme though
