Yeah, like it never happened before with Bitcoin, right? A famous quote, "Those who fail to learn Learn From History, are Doomed to Repeat it".

For every person who made money on Bitcoin, there's probably 10 that got screwed.

Not everyone gets sucked into get rich quick schemes. Good luck with your journey on becoming a millionaire with Bitcoin.

I chose to become a millionaire the old fashion way, by working hard, saving from every paycheck and investing wisely. I won't lose what I have, depending on which way the wind blows. And it wasn't on get rich quick schemes.

Here's some educational reading for you:

There's tons more, just ask if you want any additional...

The Bitcoin groupies remind me of the Qanon groupies. No level of facts or logic will change their minds. Go ask a "Q" follower how well that worked out this past year.

Really?.. you've been pumping it up like crazy.

Is that what people called it in the Fall/Winter of 2018... Winning? Or was that the chant in Dec. 2017?

In all fairness, this can be said of almost any stock and is eerily similar to the dot com discussions.   I like ETH, it is truly different than btc

Obviously me and Rutgers follow the same guys.   Hey sniper:  If I you create a Coinbase account I will send you 1/2 a bitcoin just so I can stop you from warning us about the crashes.   If you own some will you just stop it?   I would send you a whole one but a half a one is up 100% in a month.   Just stop man.   You can dunk on us all you want when we are defeated but as of now it’s SO MUCH WINNING  so just stop.  It’s like I know a buddy of mine I’ve been telling him to buy for like 5 years and he keeps telling me about money laundering and terrorist financing and I’m like it’s 50x in your face and your still preaching to me   Just give up. I don’t know why it bothers me so much but you just can’t help yourself to comment negative about the coin   Look at the scoreboard man.   I’m not telling you to buy.  If it’s not your gig that’s fine but stop it with the “oh oh looks like it’s gonna crash” 

 

You can send me some ;)

Did you verify yourself on coinbase? Seems like I'm giving alot of info to an app.

Question:

I have a coinbase account and some bitcoin purchased through paypal.  I did both for more of investment than purchasing with it.  PayPal seems like more of just for investing.  Does it make sense to keep both?

well much of the low remaining is options expiration this week so it's expected.  That said, 4 billion worth of options has to go somewhere

 

 

I have a feeling the stock is gonna stay high just to fuck the people with options, and they will sell off the high overpriced stock sometime in the coming weeks.

All about the Pump and Dump:

..."Tesla CEO Elon Musk seemed to rally behind GameStop’s epic surge, tweeting out a link to the Reddit board that’s largely hyped the stock.

Shares of GameStop were up more than 60% in after-hours trading on Tuesday following Musk’s tweet, which linked to the “wallstreetbets” Reddit page that has more than 2 million subscribers. The Tesla CEO tweeted “Gamestonk!!”

I've been eyeing AMC.  It's been absolutely hammered and tettering on running out of cash.  But with vaccine roll out and a little time it could be a nice turn around play.  Or it could go belly up and equity investors get wiped out.

Damn, this was just around $2 - $2.50 about two weeks ago.  Now closing in on $5.  

Could be part of the short squeeze pop that several beaten down stocks are experiencing.

Bought Blackbery not that long ago for around $7 up to 18-19, looks promising now that it cleared  a patent hurdle and supposedly have really good security.

Thought I read somewhere that the government only uses Blackberry phones because of there good security .

Maybe you Tech guys now more.

This morning Barron’s is reporting that the SEC is looking at GameStop for systematic inconsistencies in the trading of the stock.  

I guess a 700% jump in one month is not normal.  Lol.  They are looking at trading forums for signs of coordinated pump and dump discussions.  

in other news, futures are pointing sharply lower today so it’s looking like a rough day.  Might make for some buying opportunities

Its all fake. 

A bunch of retards in a reddit group decided to hype the stock as a way to fuckover big funds that were shorting the stock. A couple Funds called there options yesterday and lost billions of dollars. 

That, and they manipulated people to buy stock to shoot up their own investments.
