Almost everything is going back up now.
looks like Segwit will get the 80% adoption needed to prevent a fork. so people buying again. it will probably drop again before august 1st but then after skyrocket.
Are most of you crypto-bros holding a bit of each brand?
Am interested in posting long position in ethereum, even though I'll always feel like a year late to the party.
I've been holding LTC since it was around $25.
Made a lot of money day trading BCC over the last week. It was almost too good to be true.
Look on the bright side... you may only be a few months late... ether was trading around $12-$13 in February. lol. It's still well under its all-time high, though. I've been waiting a few days to get "verified". Of course it takes off as I'm waiting. *sigh* Oh well, maybe it'll crash again.
Finally pulled the trigger on a small portion of ethereum. I know next to nothing about it, but I wanted to take the chance to make some money in case it takes off. It's at $298 right now I believe -- always felt like I was going to be late to the party, so finally just bit the bullet and made a small investment.
I don't know anything about mining -- is this something a novice investor/user can do? If I have 20 ethereum, for example, can I "mine" 10 ethereum (over the course of however many months) and then own 30 ethereum? As you can tell, I have no idea what I'm doing...
I hold a 4:1 on ETH:XRP I'm very Bullish on ETH as the most likely to hit it's all time high of $400.. I hoping in a month or two.
XRP is a long term play and have high hopes on its tech. I'm looking also at IOT but still have some researching to do.
Yup. That's essentially how it works.
You receive cryptocurrency for a proportion of what you contribute relative to other people. So you are competing with people that are running large-scale mining operations that can process more transactions and at scale. Not only that but you have to make sure your GPU is efficient enough at mining to outweigh the costs of electricity, which would go up, since you are running your GPU at peak load 24/7.
If you're interested in mining here's a basic setup/optimization guide: https://hothardware.com/reviews/ethereum-mining-analysis-gpu-performance-and-optimization
i was interested in buying back when it was in the 400s but i honestly had no idea how to even buy bitcoin. I messed up on that front, but now just seems like a bit of a peak to buy in.
not even close to the peak. go buy.
call me crazy but buying at all time highs doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy.
if you bought at any time in the past like 3 yrs then you probably bought at an all time high. there was a one moment spike in 2013 that got to $1100, but besides that spike its basically just gone up and up. the crypto civil war is mostly resolved. go buy now.
Not true anyhow, there have been huge ups and downs up til now, even your chart shows it and there are more detailed ones available. The crypto war also is far from resolved and bitcoin isn't the best contender.
doesn't need to be the best, just good enough
I've been wanting to invest in bitcoin/ ether
Anybody have advice to give ?
Yes I know how they work ( sort of)
Which one will be the better investment?
Is it too late to invest?
I only wanna invest a small amount per month (cost averaging)
you can set up a small amount per month/week to be purchased at Coinbase.com
What's the better/best wallets/exchange services for bc? I am interested in getting some, I have researched it but was looking for info on your personal experiences
If you're looking to just get small amounts of Bitcoin, Etherium, or Litecoin and just hold onto it, setup an account with Coinbase. If you want to start aquiring and trading Alt coins then setup a Coinbase account and an account with Bittrex.
You should of bought.
Bitcoin is about to hit $4,000.
