Hey everyone - I've lately gotten big into investing into Digital currencies and Alt coins, I wanted to see if anyone else has been doing the same or would like to chat about it. I've known about crypto currencies for the last few years now, but just haven't had funds or the desire to take the chance. I've done my research and know the risks and volatility, so please no trolls. This is an open conversation to expand our knowledge of the topic. If you're interested, here's a site to get started and you and I both would receive $10 in BTC. If you have questions or would like advice, I would do my best to help you out. The link to sign up is below.

I'm also starting a thread Called "Digital Currencies" where we can share updates, trends, and talk about upcoming news in the Crypto world. Feel free to post updates and any new threads into the the forum listed below.

You clearly don't know the significance of the crypto world, without others, no one WINS. I'm offering free advice, and for an awesome smart community like GameTZ, the ability for others to share their knowledge as well. I guarantee there is someone on this site who has had more success in the digital currency world than me, and absolutely knows more than myself. I would love to talk with them and grow from them. I'm not holding a gun to anyone's head, I don't continually make money off these referrals, I don't even care if people use my link, but that would just mean that person wouldn't get a bonus either. I just want to expand this knowledge. BTC has been around for 10+ years. It's not going anywhere anytime soon, and the more people that realize that the sooner, the better off they will be in the long run. I knew about Bitcoin at $200 a coin. There's tons of new "coins" being made every day. Take it how you want it.

Can somebody tell me why I would want to use digital currencies and not actual money? Is it for the anonymity?

There's many reasons...

- Anonymity is a plus to help prevent bank theft and or fraud.
- Transactions are almost instant and extremely secure.
- When coins are being mined, they are improving the infrastructure of the internet. When the economy of the internet flourishes, the value of coins follow. (Basic level knowledge explained)
- Many companies are beginning to adopt Alt coins as secure forms of payments. On top of that these companies are holding these coins and watching their capital grow way faster than any mutual fund. Short selling parts of the stacks at highs and buying more at lows.
- Retailers are going out of business left and right. Online payment systems are becoming way more accepted. Paper money will soon not be a thing.
- DC's are a decentralized market within a centralized system. This makes hard earned money by people much more valuable then bringing to your local bank.

Just to name a few, but the list goes on and on...

Depends on what you mean by "invested" and "held." Lots of people used iGot.com (now Bitlio.com) to "invest" and "hold" bitcoins -- and got royally screwed and lost a LOT of money.

That is part of the risk of "investing" with Bitcoin. You often need an Exchange. There have been repeated "exchanges" that died and took everyone's money with them.

So, I would disagree with your quote.

Unless you mean it so general that you could literally say it for ANY investment. In which case, you could also say "Not a single person who has ever invested in the S&P500 and just HELD, has ever lost money" -- simply because the S&P500 is near its all-time high (like Bitcoin). But the reality is that lots of people have "lost money" along the way -- because when you invest you simply don't "just hold forever."

All very true and good points John! That's why I wanted this thread and group to start. I am in other groups not just here that I obtain knowledge and updates from on an hourly/daily basis. The reason I say Coinbase, is because it is a centralized product that is also federally insured for any hacks security breaches on the site. The creator of Litecoin himself was on the board with Coinbase, and just left to pursue $LTC full time. Since he did that in the last week, LTC has surged up $15-20 a coin. Exactly my point. People don't have the "guts" to last big dips, but like history has proven itself, it always has overcame the dip and reached an ATH. This is very healthy for the crypto market to see pops, because in return many people who want in, invest a lot. Also allows for people to short some supply and re-invest at lower points; if that all made sense. Also, there are many secure offline storage devices you can store your coins and currency in. Very cheap, and never online, 100% secure, unless you lost the Key and USB drive. At the end of the day, it's best to always convert a majority of your profits from BTC to USD.

Agreed -- discussion is good. yes

I don't invest in digital currencies -- but count me in with the many that wished they had a LONG time ago. Some people have gotten very, very wealthy from riding that train.

Now, just for the sake of information since you're learning -- what you just said is not fully accurate and it is important to know that. Coinbase holds both digital currency and "fiat" currency (which is "real" money backed by the US government). To say "federally insured" here is a bit incorrect. Coinbase has TWO forms of insurance. They have some sort of PRIVATE insurance (which they don't give too much information about -- such as who insures them and such) for all DIGITAL currency like Bitcoin. Then they store all fiat money in normal bank accounts -- so THOSE are FDIC insured just like any bank account.

But the digital currency is not really "federally insured" as you've stated. It is PRIVATELY insured by a 3rd party. And, for the values they must be holding, that private party would likely need to be someone like Lloyds of London to have the backing required. So, there is some "question" about Coinbase's private insurance against a security breach for the digital currency. Yes, they say they have it and likely do -- but it isn't clear exactly what or with whom.

Right -- and so has the S&P500. smiley:::smile

But, again, I'm not a crypto currency investor at this point. I still need to put more into more traditional retirement accounts. But, if I was younger and/or had more money to throw around, I'd certainly consider it.

I did some trading of penny stocks about 8 years ago with around $2000 of "extra" money that I had saved up. I clearly should have bought Bitcoin instead. Takes more time to follow penny stocks. Could have just sat on the BItcoin and been rich. smiley:::smile

I appreciate the knowledge as well! Excellent points all around, John. If I could go back in time, I would have done the same for you as well. Hah. I've come to accept, that I will either flourish or die by alt currencies. Not taking risks in my eyes is the quickest way to poverty, and I haven't held back on that mentality. I also don't think it is ever to late, and only just beginning. As for the Coinbase security, they only store 2% of the funds online, so their offline storage would be the mass hold of everyone's currencies. The 2% is still "theoretically" hackable, but wouldn't be as huge of a loss due to the secure offline. As to the S&P500... great analogy, but let's get it clear that we're dealing with a whole new beast here. BTC will pass S&P500 by 2020 if not exponentially sooner. Here is the article that explains it more in-depth. You basically nailed it on the head though, John.

Ok, so, this story is a little weird. I mean, he did well -- but there are some very odd bits.

So, he took $1000 from his grandmother and bought a bunch of bitcoin with it -- in May of 2011. Bitcoin was around $12. So, he got around 83 bitcoins.
(On a side note here, Bitcoin was around $1 just a month earlier -- had he done it in April instead of May of 2011, he would have had around 900 bitcoins instead. Or, if he had waited a month or so, it dropped back down to $2/coin and he could have had ~500 bitcoins. But, he bought on a spike -- so oh well.)

At the end of 2013, he sold them all for around $100,000. Which means he got around $1200/coin -- which is really good since the average during Nov/Dec of 2013 was around $500-$650/coin. He sold at a very good spike!

He then used that $100,000 to make a startup company called Botangle. He then sold it a year later (January 2015). This is where it is a bit odd. It says that he was offered $100,000 cash or about $60,000 worth of bitcoins for it. He decided to go with the bitcoins because he thought they would rise again. Um, then why not take $100,000 cash and BUY bitcoins? Very weird -- there must be more to the story there. But, in any case, he takes the $60,000 worth of bitcoins -- which, in January 2015, would be about 170 bitcoins.

The article then says that "through further investment", he is now up to 403 bitcoins. There is no explanation as to how he did this. He more than doubled his bitcoins that he had from selling the company. How did he magically acquire another 230 bitcoins worth hundreds of thousands of dollars between January 2015 and today?

So, sure, it's a "feel good" story about Bitcoin "investing" -- but there appears to be a lot missing...

Right, that's the exact gamble. Since it's so volatile you may miss on even better gains, but the gains always follow none the less. So my best advice, don't wait out for the "Next Pop." I'm assuming back in 2015, there were a lot less coins in circulation and the craze was growing exponentially. To have $60,000 of liquid coins in this volatile of a market is crucial. Like you mentioned his wallet could have grown 12 times if he would have just invested the month prior. My assumption is he bought and sold on ebb and flows of the market converting profits into bagged BTC. Exactly what I'm trying to get started with people in this community, or at least get the conversation going.

But it isn't exponential and the total bitcoin field is capped, I believe, at 21,000,000. (We're at about 16,000,000 now.)

It has an end lock where there will be no more bitcoins (or very, very few).

What that will do to the market is yet to be seen -- but it is expected to reach that around 2020.

> To have $60,000 of liquid coins in this volatile of a market is crucial.

Sure -- but if he could have sold for $100,000 cash, he could have bought $100,000 worth of liquid coins the next day.

> Like you mentioned his wallet could have grown 12
> times if he would have just invested the month prior.

Or a month LATER -- again, it dropped significantly (from $12/coin to $2/coin) the month after he bought.

This story sounds good now -- but you have to wonder if he was a bit worried when he bought $1000 worth of bitcoin and then, a month later, it was worth only $166! smiley:::smile

> My assumption is he bought
> and sold on ebb and flows of the market converting profits into bagged BTC.

Possibly -- but it should have said that. Again, this was a kid that bought on a SPIKE -- it was literally worth 1/6 of what he paid for it a month later -- and was 1/12 of what he paid for it a month before. Had he "timed the market" just a LITTLE better, he'd have made 6-12x what he did. So, to suggest that he's some expert at timing the market seems a stretch. smiley:::smile

People have been having similar discussions about penny stocks, gold, and other such investments for decades now. This really isn't THAT different actually.

It will be interesting to see what happens in 2020 when we hit the bitcoin wall though and max-out the actual coins in existence.

I see what you're saying here, John. Nothing against age, I just have a hard time connecting these thoughts with people who grew up in the penny stock era, or continue to have an old-school approach towards money. You seem very knowledgeable and you take a strategic approach with each question or point, which is awesome. Although, this is completely different in the Crypto world. There is always a devils advocate argument to every ebb and flow. The beauty with this market, is it's decentralized. I'm over fiat currency, and I believe everyone else should be too, too much government control and say. I personally can't wait until that day comes, it just means my coins will be worth more, and from there they will split into "Milli BTC's" which will be 1 millionth of a Bitcoin. BTC eventually will be someone's saving/retirement fund. If you're lucky enough to have one of the "few." At the end of the day, stick to the plan. Take your losses where you see them, and make your profits throughout. No emotional attachment. If you get a good system down, you can day flip coins, and the multipliers in crypto will keep you wanting more. Just my two cents.

"the penny stock era"?? Seriously -- people still do penny stocks or other similar "timing the market" with volatile stocks on a regular basis.

I was talking about doing it a few years ago. This is the same era.

In fact, this is the same sort of THING as investing in those -- or gold. That was my point.

> or continue to have an old-school approach towards money.

That's the thing. This isn't new-school. People have been investing in precious metals like gold the same way that you're talking about with BitCoin. It ISN'T different. Again, that's my point.

The only difference is that BitCoin is MORE volatile than gold -- it bounces around much more. But, from an investment standpoint, it is very, very similar.

No, it really isn't. And it shouldn't be. If you think it is very different, then I worry that you are not being as diligent as you should be before investing.

> There is always a devils advocate

So? Gold is decentralized in a similar way. Multiple exchanges. Mining still happening. Etc.

See -- the issue here is that you aren't seeing USING Bitcoin and INVESTING in Bitcoin as very different things. They are not at all the same.

Bitcoin is very different than physical currency when you are USING it, yes. But that isn't the same as INVESTING in it at all. You need to see that they are very different things.

This is one SUGGESTED and POSSIBLE action in 2020. It is not locked in by any means. Again, this is an issue with "decentralized" currency -- there is not necessarily a good plan in place on how to transition when that wall is reached. Lots of people have very different ideas on how to handle that. MilliBTCs is just ONE possible reaction.

> BTC eventually will be someone's saving/retirement fund.

Just so you know, since you like to talk old/new school -- you sound JUST like a guy telling people to buy gold 30 years ago. Just like him. Again, it isn't that different.

> No emotional attachment. If you get a good system down, you can day flip coins, and

Yup -- now you sound like any penny stock pusher over the past 30 years.

Again, not saying you are wrong or that it is a bad idea. I'm just saying that this belief that this is "different" and "new" (when it comes to the INVESTING side of it) is simply incorrect. It's a different version of the same thing that traders have been doing for decades.

USING it is completely different than INVESTING in it.

I skimmed the posts above so this might have already been covered, but these digital currency seem very unstable. It seems that more people are interested in digital currency as an investment versus as a currency. I guess that has always scared me off.

Why do you say that and which exchange can you get that through?

He's making fun of a previous "recommendation" to buy from a member here.

That being said, I DO have 2271 shares of NTEK! I could make someone such a deal!

I'll trade it all for one BitCoin! smiley:::wink

Even though the NTEK was valued at less, alexander8 decided to go for the NTEK. Six months later he was drinking margaritas next to the polo decks on a cruiser headed to the Bahamas

before he was chased overboard by security because he didn't have a boarding pass

What John said it was from another thread ... I figured someone would remember it.... I can't remember the amount of shares I have if I recall I bought in around 1.7 cent and put around $150 into it now shares are around .02 cent so I pretty much consider it a loss, I don't see it ever gaining

Dude was right about Nintendo though. I can't remember the exact numbers, but the guy said he bought $45k worth. If that was true those shares would be worth about $170k today. I bought around the sames time and just sold my shares today.

PS: I also recently sold my remaining NTEK. It wasn't worth it, but I wanted to have that embarrassment out of my portfolio.
