    Boom! 8k.

    Oh, for the good old days when you could pick up a Bitcoin for a lousy 7k.

    Over a hundred and getting less every day ... my point was anyone who collects anything goes a little crazy with their obsession, just human nature. The world is changing though, all that old oak furniture imported from England really doesn't have appeal anymore. I actually do have a few "music" comics Jimi Hendrix, AcDc etc but just for fun and the cover artwork. Basically I do think a "digital investment" is the best contemporary form of having a finger in the pie. Be it Bitcoin or Domains and whatever else our modern world has to offer??

    Wow! Mind you, it's easy in hindsight. Not many people have held from $13 until now without selling off some or all of their coins along the way. There are plenty who lost the lot at Mt Gox too. What happened to yours?

    I don't believe so, however, while I think it's extremely unlikely, it's possible that the whole thing could trace back to zero.

    My opinion is that the technology is not going away, and even if there is a massive crash at some point, the price will eventually recover and go even higher. This is what happened when the price fell from 1,100 USD in late 2013 to 200 USD by mid-January 2015. As was the case then, the crash will be the time to buy, not sell.

    That is very true, the temptation of selling when seeing %1000+ increases in price would be too great. I ended up selling mine for some schoolies spending money, spewing :p.

    I have given Callum a like due to the fact I never thought I would see the term "Schoolies" used on Dn Trade. Can't recall the word "spewing" being used either !

    No amount of bitcoin will ever allow you to go back in time to schoolies as a schoolie. Money well spent :)

    If you've got Bitcoin and are looking to increase your holdings without injecting any more cash, then keep holding.
    More cryptocurrency dividends for holders of Bitcoin are on the way, in the form of Bitcoin Diamond and Super Bitcoin.
    Once received, these altcoins that will be created through hard forks of the Bitcoin blockchain can be sold, allowing you to purchase more BTC.
