    Not sure if true. Read this on the interwebs. Right now, you would have made only 60% on BTC if you invested at the all-time-high in 2017 ($20K). However, if you had put it in any of these FAANG stocks (also at their all-time-high in 2017), you would have made:

    FB: 90%
    AAPL: 234%
    AMZN: 203%
    GOOGL: 136%
    MSFT: 223%

    LOL. Now dogecoin, still a bigger winner. For now thanks to moron musk Tesla did well too. very well. Of course there is always the possibility that Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Google and/or Microsoft might do a rug pull any moment, lock you out of accessing your shares, exit scam, or ...

    I read that those Malaysian miners were stealing electricity, like burning piles of seized pot. I wonder what US Marshall will do with their seized BTC, it's been a while since they sold some from silk road. I just read that the state dept is now offering rewards in bitcoin to parties that participate in state sponsored hacking. Paying them for committing treason, US tax payer dollars buying bitcoin.

    i'm going to begin shaving off the top of other accounts to free up 30 or so k for the buy in on btc. hopefully the fud and such will create a 15K or so price? ~3 yrs before the next halving.

    there are going to be some major problems/disruptions to the world financial system in the next few decades.

    certainly unclear whats going to happen. but btc has proven resilient. i think firesale prices will go on for a while.

    i'm single no kids no debt so i can weight heavier on btc. looking at 160 acres in wyoming for 30 grand, could be a btc mining operation. wyoming is pretty stoked on btc.

    Well I liked it. Not quite sure if I forgive Elon yet, but he seems to be moving in a reasonable direction. The man is not stupid. They sure handled him with kid gloves, while he shilled Doge repeatedly, hahaha.

    I really liked the energy discussion, lots of reasonable statements all around. Gives me hope we can move in the right direction and achieve consensus (crypto pun there).

    Some other speakers handled some of Elon's ignorance very nicely, like Lyn Alden.

    Yeah, Elon is a little different when he can't respond with memes.

    And Lyn is the shit!

    ^agreed on space x owns btc. huh.

    smart money will keep flooding in. hopefully crypto winter is here.

    time may be a construct in the abstract, it does not seem to be rewinding..

    many approachable buying opportunities abound.

    designing the next system. if your kids don't have a 10/20% weight in digital assets, you are firmly mistaken.

    anyone in their 20's or 30's should capitalize on what has happened. what is a turing award?

    alan turing invented the very screen you are reading this on.

    I have been a person that never got into, or was introduced to chips, and all those accessory dipping things.

    Just like the bulls were super quiet when BTC dropped. If you’re criticizing the bears you’re also criticizing yourself.
