    Mostly down with little bumps here and there. But from Jan 1 to now, way down.

    Shhhhh. It's dark mode time, like playoff LeBron, except with tax season. Gotta hold QUIET while not reporting gains to the IRS.

    It's still going though, certainly a bear market atm but plenty of plays on bitmex w/ leverage and in alts. On a side note... I've got into a few that I figured were trash and made money just selling the news. BTC has already gone a bit up since publish of this, it's certainly still fun with the volatility as long as you only invest what you're okay with losing... Unfortunately as the article mentions a lot of these icos were trash.

    On a side note, I already cashed out my initial investment and some, that's my best advice, play with house money asap, and play smart. There's still money to be made.

    There were a couple I had that I held way too long and are now worth 5-10% of their high. Hogs get slaughtered.

    Bitcoin was always due to violent correction after the largest parabolic movement ever.

    Once the ETF is approved, it will easily spike back above 20k.

    You do realize anyone with a computer, keyboard, mouse and $1 in Ethererum can create their own 'ICO' and coin. You'd be lucky to find anyone in this thread who has heard of any of more than a couple of these 800 'dead' coins.
