Goons: Don't buy/mine bitcoins, bitcoins are a scam, dumb and bad!
Reality: Current bitcoin price: $1,163.59

I should have never listened to any of you, I could have retired rich today!!

Whats next, pre-ordering videogames may be actually a good idea??!

The reason to not touch bitcoins has nothing to do with whether or not the price will be high or low. It could be ten thousand dollars per bitcoin tomorrow and goons would still be right about it.

They're way, way too unstable to make any kind of safe predictions or bets on. If you bought in back in 2009 when would you have sold? When it hit 300 (and then crashed)? 750 (and then crashed)? A lot more people have lost money on bitcoin than have made it and retired happy.

It's easy to look back in the past and say 'if i had only known!!!!' but it's way more difficult to stare into the future and say 'in seven years this will be worth $1000' and if you could do that then take your rear end directly to wall street. Which brings me to the final thing - if you want to gamble with your money on unstable long shots go with penny stocks and day trading. That poo poo has lots of legal protections. When a shady bitcoin exchange goes under nobody gets anything except whoever ran off with it all.

the only solace i can take is the knowledge that any bitcoins i would have had since i first learned about them here 9999 years ago is that any 'coins i had would have been stolen 10 times over from whatever bank i had them in. also, goons that obsess about bit coins are hosed up, freaks, and sickos.

Isn't there a bitcoin index etf in the works? That's how I'd buy bitcoin because then you don't actually have to own/hold bitcoin to play the game (and you can short it)
