I was an unlikely candidate tbh. I know a decent chunk of economics both consumer and macro, and I saw through utopian crypto promises pretty easily. Yet I’m now down some 15-20k dollars from buttcoin investments. Why? Well, a friend of mine became, briefly, a dollar millionaire in bitcoins. I was quite impressed and a tad jealous of this. Other friends, and podcasters, and internet communities in general, spoke constantly in very promising and adoring tones about cryptos, and my father did too (though few of these really invested anything of worth). And people are social creatures and it’s hard to stand up to peer pressure, and the promises of future wealth did the rest. So I developed a new theory of buttcoin: Imagine you’re able to print monopoly money and make other people accept this as real money. Other people in turn accept them as money and start using them as such, and they start circulating. Now you and your group has essentially printed money; the cost is borne by other people as an inflation tax. I’m convinced crypto can theoretically work this way. The problem of course is that cryptos are hardly ever used as money because they are too cumbersome to use. Real money is just faster and cheaper, yes cheaper, once you take into account all the crap you have to install, converting your money to crypto, and so on. So 98% of the value is just speculative. Of course the crypto community is also exceptional at putting the blinders on. China has had a 6 month long crackdown on bitcoin since new year roughly, which is probably why btc has crashed. From reading cryptocurrency you’d never believe it, as every post about this is attacked with extreme skepticism bordering on nihilism (how can you really know anything from China, have you been there and seen It yourself?!1!) It was easy to get caught up in the bug when I started ‘’’’’investing’’’’’ in btc as I started at the beginning of the great rise from around 3k and ‘’’invested’’’ steadily throughout the rise, and then some more during the great fall. I wasted much more than I had thought, because I have to convert from my national currency to Euro to buy, then the coins all have different values that are expressed in dollars, so it’s hard to get a sense of how much you’ve wasted as you’re using all these different units you’re not used with, and which fluctuate to boot. So I’ve been rather depressed about all this, but I hear the best way to cope is to accept what happened and move on. So here it is: I have accepted that I acted moronically with my hard earned money. The overall situation is not the worst however: I will soon start in a new job that pays reasonably well, I’ve just bought an apartment whose mortgage I can pay with some margin of error too. I’m more fortunate than most even after accepting this loss. I must focus on this going forward.
Since yesterday Bitcoin went up to $13900 so who gained and who lost money on Bitcoin today? If gained, then when did you buy the bitcoin? And if lost then when did you buy it and did you sell it yet? My story: I bought bitcoin when it was at $13.9K and lost money today but it's okay. It surely will go up again! What y'all think, will it go up or not?
Bitcoin mentioned around Reddit: Has anyone lost money on bitcoin in the past week? How much and how do you feel about it? I'm a journalist and interested to know stories for an article for The Independent in the UK. /r/AskReddit
To all those who think they have lost money on the last Bitcoin spike!
I bought my first crypto back in Feb2014... $720USD. Over time it went down to $150. Man, I remember how I got fu*ked over with this investment shit! So, I just wrote it off as a total lost, but did keep the paper wallet safe as you where suppose to. This kept me from buying more of course. Shame!!! Hodl on! It's not over! It's just a question of time! Right now, I'm glad I did buy a bit
Bitcoin works best when we've all got our hustle going and contributing to the accumulation of bits
None of this get-rich-quick mentality, or chasing shitcoins. That's how you get rekt. If you "lost" money on Bitcoin, look at the bigger picture. You've got to be a believer. You also need to be practical. Get a job. Keep your job. Save your extra money on Bitcoin. When you're ready to retire, Bitcoin will still be there

On only 9 days in all of bitcoins history, investor who bought and held, would have lost money. On the other 2912 days everyone has made a profit.
Only 9 days in bitcoins prior history have traded above current levels. This means everyone who bought btc and never sold, on the 2912 other days of bitcoins history, have made money. Those who bought on those 9 losing days have all lost less than 10% on their investment. This same pattern has followed every single "bubble" in bitcoins history. As someone who bought at $10 I've seen it many many times but more importantly the feeling I have right now is very very different from any previous occasion. One of two things is about to happen (and I'd bet my BTC on it) 1: we are about to enter another bubble cycle with a price run up to around $2500-3000 before a correction to $1500 OR 2: bitcoin has matured to a degree that we will continue to see single digit weekly average gains for the next few weeks before a much more minor correction. Don't invest what you can't afford to lose, but also don't feel it's too late because historically only 9 days out of 2912 have been "too late" (and even those will evaporate over the next few days)

I traded back and fourth between alt coins ENJ and Bitcoin on Binance but overall lost money how does that effect my taxes?
I traded back and fourth between alt coins ENJ and Bitcoin on Binance but overall lost money (over $2000) how does it effect my taxes? Can I get a tax break if I didn't earn any profit? or do I have to pay tax on every transaction even though I lost money? If the latter is true, how is that a fair or logical system, someone could then hypothetically owe more money in taxes than what they initially put in to cryptos if they do a lot of trading....
Lost a bit of money today day trading Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin for the first time ($360 -> $114) on GDAX. I'm going to try to get some back, but need tips. Let me know if it is worth pursuing.
I'm doing pretty well with the coins I have held but have not had much luck timing the plunges. Anyone have any tips or tricks? I just graduated from college and am job searching, so I have some free time. I would like to just get back to what I had initially, and if all goes well, maybe mess with it further. The end of the grace period on my loans is looming and I would love to get any extra cash I can. Thanks!
