And goldman sachs are seemingly looking into starting a crypto desk
Bought Ripple today and made 10% already.
good timing. Theres a big conference this month and people are expecting good news.
I've had some ripple for a while. The upcoming Swell conference may well lend itself to a short term boost. I'm holding for the long term mostly.
Me too. Although not a huge amount. Unlikely it will ever get over a couple of bucks though it seems
I've started a site on ICO investing and cryptocurrency in general if anyone is interested (see my signature). Looks like a good time to be getting into alts as prices have been depressed lately due to the hard-fork which has now been called off, thankfully. Most of my portfolio is in double digits today .
Has anyone invested in Monero? seems to be doing well at the moment

"In 2017, .io and .me are hot and cool, .com is established, but stale and boring."
Buterin posted that Tweet. He built the Ethereum blockchain.
.io and .me are cool with startups who can't afford .com, basically
lol, Just was looking back at the first page of this thread at what certain people were saying when the price of bitcoin was around $225. Just shows how quickly things can change.
bitcoin is up and down more often than my missus moodswings at the mo. Some healthy swings lately
they are just short term swings. Irrelevant if you hold for the medium or long term, bitcoin is just an upward curve and its surprising how often you can say its another all time high....oh like now!
Interestingly this latest push is due to whats happened with Mugabe they reckon. People looking for a safe haven before the currency comletely tanks.. Which for a crypto is a big deal, obviously easier to deal with than gold.
Have any of you guys held on to Bitcoin if you bought at that price?
I sold at £1000 for the most part as that was the amount I had hoped for when I bought a couple at £350ish
I do look at it now and of course I think I should have held on, but realistically I would never have been able to keep hold above £2000
I am honestly on the fence with cryptocurrency as an investment. Could it soon completely drop to what some would argue is a more reasonable price or could it quickly rise to $20k? But I certainly don't think there is any denying that this kind of setup will be a part of our future.
One thing that worries me is that although cryptocurrency is different to metals, the major hype building around it and so many people buying it based around this is VERY similar to what happened to gold/silver around 2011 and those who remember will also notice that some of the same people are hyping the "IT'S GUNNA GO TO 100K!!!!" who went very quite after metals dropped and went out of the limelight.
It could very well drop to say $3k and stay there for the next 10 years and sensibly go up over time....
That being said, people who buy and hold any of these things over time because they truly believe in it rather than trying to make a quick profit hopefully do well.
never actually bought bitcoin. Im in on some xrp . Its still only at 0.2
This is my old account, and my opinion hasn't changed.
BUT.... I sold my bitcoin not long after this for $600.
Gutted to have done so of course, when its worth $7000 today.
But it kind of still proves my point, that in order to function as a currency people can't be afraid to spend it.
The idea of purchasing a £20,000 car in bitcoin, and the car then being worth £10,000 a few years later.... and the bitcoin expended being worth £100,000....
That remains the flaw in my opinion. A currency that people are afraid to spend?
I think that blockchain technology can and probably will form the basis upon which transactions are carried out in the future, in fact a transaction tax could be collected! Could revolutionise taxation, how about just 5% of everything any human ever spends on anything?
But that we'll still be using pounds, dollars and euros, and that central banks will still have some control over supply and set inflation targets and interest rates.
