    Nope, liquidate everything and bet it all to win.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    ^ dca in over a period of time, we will prob retrace a bit. let it run, convert some(half or more)into usdc. wait for the pullback, then rebuy in at a lower pricepoint.

    then continue to accumulate. so no, it's not too late.

    Check out the timeline (post 19) in this epic tweet thread . This is what the visionaries and doers are planning for. They are thinking a decade + out. So no, I don't think you're too late. However, there are plenty of salty curmudgeons in this thread who contribute nothing beyond negative vibes and bad faith arguments and have been screaming BTC is going to zero since page 1. These are the same type of people who claimed in 1995 the internet was never going to amount to anything and laughed while the Wright Brothers were flying at Kitty Hawk.

    I think byates is correct that if you're new to all this, dollar cost averaging into BTC is a good strategy. Say you have 10k total you want to invest. Start with 1k into BTC and give it a few weeks. Get used to what it feels like buying and holding. Later on you can decide if you want to keep building your position at regular intervals. The new BTC reward cards from Fold, BlockFi, Coinbase, etc. are also an excellent low-risk way to start building a position. It's a long-term game of accumulation in my opinion. There are only 21 million BTC ever and over 50 million millionaires worldwide.

    I highly recommend watching this 5 part series before putting any substantial amount of money in. Chris is one of my fav educators in the space. He stresses, it's up to you to decide the value of BTC.

    TL;DR Lots of pros are forecasting BTC price targets by the end of this bull (probably somewhere in 1st half of 2022) run from 200-300k. BTC is the safest play, by quite a bit IMO. If you want max profits from a high-risk strategy, buy as much ETH, SOL, BNB, AVAX, etc. as possible. If you want to get even riskier, buy SHIB.

    ^ reading those comments from 2012 are hilarious. to be fair, btc to most everyone then was a silly internet money project back then.

    although to be fair to satoshi, it was designed as a legit alternative to other transaction mechanisms at the time, and was created in part as a reaction to the bail outs of the banks in 08.

    the amount of money printed then seems trivial compared to this past 18 months.

    As recently as August 2021 there may have only been 10 or so us who were bullish GME on r/wsb.

    In 2017, I was about the only idiot buying stock in Hydrogen companies.

    Very late to the crypto party in Dec 2020 but that seems like ages ago

    Watching Ed dunk on Sam for Worldcoin is pretty entertaining. It's also a good exercise reminding us why BTC actually is THAT good as arguably the most decentralized form of money. I generally like Sam and his blog. But c'mon man, you were surprised that people don't want their eyeballs scanned by an orb? Really? Lol

    My God Worldcoin has some governance issues from the constating docs right off the bat. I'm not saying it's as bad as EOS but there needs to be more checks and balances built in. It's an interesting concept. But really needs more thought put it into it from the user point of view

    Increasingly crypto in general and Bitcoin specifically are becoming controlled by capital and not the community. Bitcoin is not entirely decentralized and transfers are already being blocked for compliance reasons. For example, the largest Bitcoin mining pool recently blocked internet access from mainland China to comply with Chinese government regulations on crypto mining activities:

    https://www.coindesk.com/business/20...ainland-china/

    The word 'decentralized' in the context of bitcoin has taken on the additional meaning of protecting key actors operating the system rather than a 'permisionless' form of money. The Veil of Decentralization is helpful to participants in the blockchain because it provides a liability shield without making the blockchain system a legal person that could be sued even though blockchains are often controlled by people with concentrated power and human agency:

    We should strive to maintain a clear‐eyed understanding about how power actually operates within systems so that we can make informed decisions based on reality and not mythology.

    Congrats! Hopefully you don't get taxed on your unrealized gains. Lol

    In other news, last week Houston firefighters pension buying BTC and ETH. This week it's the Korean teachers union.

    Bought some of this last Friday. Up ~70%.
    If this ever goes to $.01, I will be a multi millionaire. Definitely worth a couple hundo. Question is will it go up to $.01 or even .001? When is the time to get out. "SHIB". I don't need a used pair of clamps that bad.

    The coin supply is so insanely high that for it to go to .01 the market cap would have to be 5 trillion dollars so that seems well impossible. .001 is improbable but not impossible but would make it have have the market cap in the top 10 coins.....I mean DOGE did it.

    I would treat Shib as a trade and its basically straight up gambling.

    To me, every crypto is straight up gambling.

    well you can have that opinion. I am curious though FIAT cash loses value from inflation, stock market is manipulated, crypto is value by pure supply and demand and sometime the fundamentals of the project.

    but the marketcap need to get Shib to .01 is impossible. I am not saying its not a good trade, it is, I have had small position in Shib as well, but I am under no delusion it will ever reach .01 cent, and know .001 is less likely than BTC hitting 500k.

    If anyone is using Robinhood for anything they are not to smart. When you buy crypto on robinhood you can not transfer it, off exchange means you never actually own it.
