Anyone interested in investing in Bitcoin?

I found a sweet deal on 2 KnC Jupiters
these are the fastest bitcoin miners on the market right now
these are the November edition which hashes at 650 GH/s!
These also include the required power supplies

these go for between 16-25,000$on ebay
the guy selling these is asking for 24,000 for both
I can only afford 1 so I need someone to pay for the second one
these should generate about $15,400 in January alone
The seller is holding them for me for 2 days
so I would need the other buyer to have $12000 in cash

any one interested?

I can also host your machine so you don't pay for electricity or cooling

I'm just going to stick to investing in/maintaining rich girlfriends. It's done fairly well so far.

bitcoin is crashing and its getting harder to mine everyday. Pretty soon you will be paying more for electricity than you actually profit from mining.

Not exactly
It used to be that any miner would make you money
Now unless you have the fastest one, it doesn't make sense

there will always be a breakeven point in mining efforts. I would be careful not to think you can consistently get good cash returns from a mining machine. People are constantly upgrading machines and now doing cloud services, and the return from mining changes or are diminished or shared across more miners as tech costs increase or as bitcoin values increase/decrease or as more miners come online.

btw, your payment in mining would be in bitcoins, so for you to monetize it, you need to exchange it for USD or for goods through online merchants who accept bitcoins. You're essentially taking a foreign currency
Just conside that every month will make only 70% of the precious month
That's a good rough guide
So first month is say 10,000. Second month is 7000 etc

Selling bitcoins is pretty easy
I setup an account with coinbase, and haven't had any issues

I always ask myself that when someone is selling me something that is a sure thing and a great way to make a shitton of money, why don't they just do it themselves?

Maybe because they didn't have all the money themselves to invest it?

Bitcoin just crossed the $4000 mark today

Ethereum also on the rise, but mainly because of this:

Putin Meets With Ethereum Founder To Create National Virtual Currency

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...rtual-currency

Remember the basics folks:

1) Don't keep it on an exchange
2) At the very least for short term storage, move it to a hot wallet and then for long term storage move it to a hardware cold wallet - or straight to cold storage in a paper wallet
3) If investing - Buy it and keep it for the long term
4) Enjoy the ride
5) Buy the dips
