4 years ago I was into crypto currency when it was just becoming popular and was curious to see. But nowadays I invest my money into property market. Lately I decided to buy flat in Athens and to rent it out through Arbnb or similar websites, will bring me more money and it's more stable.

For once in my life I was right about something, I saved a ton of money and I hope many of you did as well.

New prediction, we're going even lower. WAY lower. I'm talking BTC sub $1k and mETH sub $10.

What a difference a year makes!

Man, I don't know. A whole lot of things seems to be going on around the world in all financial markets. In regards to BTC we haven't even seen the fallout from the whole Tether scam yet. Once that goes, I think BTC just falls the though the floor and takes everything with it. I still think there's a lot of capitulation left in Crypto even without Tether being exposed for the scam it is.

I got tired of being wrong about a financial collapse from 2008 to around 2015 when I just gave up, but things are sure starting to feel like early 2007 all over again.

We shall see, all we can do is hope for the best. Good luck!

Gambling is different. There is no inherent value to a poker hand. Instead, you are betting on the probabilistic outcome of a specific repeatable set of outcomes
Iíd argue there is more value to a poker hand than Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is worthless in the end. At least you have a chance of winning with Poker.

You hold Bitcoin, itís going to $0 or very near it.

Golden rule: buy low, sell high. Imagine buying at $3,500 and selling at $333,000. Buy ten BTCs today and you’ll be sitting on $3.3M in two years. Not a bad return, right?

And imagine if I could teleport anywhere in the universe.

Saying it doesn’t make it true. Why sell at $333,000? Why not sell at $3M or $3B? Then you’d have billions in 2 years, lol. I like how you just gave it a price of $333,000 like it’s happening.

Imagine buying 10 coins at $3,500 and it being worth $0 in 2 years? Then you’ve lost $35,000.

There is literally nothing underneath Bitcoin to justify higher prices besides excitement. No earnings. No assets. It’s an unproductive asset and when the excitement is gone, the price goes to zero, period. Even gold has some value because it can be used in manufacturing.

“Buy low sell high” is a term for stocks that have businesses behind them with earning power, assets, and cash.

I should have mentioned I was being 100% sarcastic. I actually found the $333K number from this silly article:

lol -- meanwhile.. lets not forget how many kids became millionaires out of stupidity..by holding to a coin what was once worth 1c, $1, $10, $1000, etc.

if you gonna sit there and bash every time, i think you just mad u missed out on opportunity.

i kinda see 2700-3000 in play near time. There are massive orders pilling up at under 3k. What do you think it happens once those massive order happen..?

Remember we went from 2k-20k in a matter of days. This is crypto and anything is possible. But it will be $0 makes no sense.

Technical analysis...will show its not possible to hit $0.

binance is child play. When it comes to making big money that shit happens on Bitmex, Bitfinex, those exchanges that offer leverage.

Millions of dollars are being liquidated..

Nothing new here man. People always talks so much shit during a bear market and talk about buying Ferraris during a bull run. Crypto is in the dumps right now but it will recover. Just have to sit out the storm.

Crypto has gone through many cycles just like this one and yes it will most likely recover like it always has yet NickyC thinks he's got it all figured out, lol.

I have a friend who bought ICX for 70 cents or so around ICO and sold at around 12.00. He made millions and never has to work again. This guy is late 20s.
