Well I have no doubt it is a bubble. But like the bubble in Apple stock in 1999, I believe this thing has a future beyond the bubble.

And so do many others. And that's what is driving the price increase. We are seeing mainstream adoption. The CBOE is about to list BTC based derivatives. Major accounting firms like Deloitte are accepting it as payment.

We are seeing a bubble no doubt. But we are also seeing the emergence of a new form of money.

The early adopters bought an asset and are holding for the long run- most are anyway. They are helping to transform an asset into money.

It's not there yet. But we are on the way.

Atleast that's my take. No doubt it could be wrong.


If I had any doubts, I'd lock in my 381% return by cashing out.  And then maybe reinvesting whatever my ORIGINAL investment was.

And miss out on the future Iota profits stemming from their newly announced partnership with Microsoft? I don't think so!

One day I'll have my lambo and all from 115 bucks I put into Iota. LOL

In this age of internet, wi-fi, cellphones, blockchains, digital ledgers, and other miracles, you have to leave home to invest in that stuff????

You most certainly do if you are buying with cash and don't want there to be a record of the purchase.

Cool

Bitcoin is failing as a currency
Instead, it's evolved into an asset.

https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/14/bitcoin-is-failing-as-a-currency/

Quote from article:  "We know exactly how many bitcoins will ever be mined, as opposed to gold, of which we only presume that the supply is limited," said blockchain entrepreneur Vladimir Lupenko.

Now, since bitcoin is a cyberspace creation using 1's and 0's, how can we be sure that MORE bitcoin might be made available?  Isn't it just a computer program? 

And if competing cryptocurrencies are developed, isn't that ultimately the same thing as more "bitcoin"?

We know there's a finite amount of gold.  The amount is unknown, but we know nobody is making more of it.  We also know we haven't found all of it.

But what if somebody figured out a way to make something that looked, felt, smelled, tasted, and worked JUST LIKE gold? Would that affect the value of real gold?  And isn't that what's going to happen if more cryptocurrencies are created?
