    it was known in august they'd be adding BCH... if you got in early, you knew about it. yes fun. i got in a BTC order when it dipped down to 14K and then it corrected in the next 45 mins back to 17K... LTC and ETH also... those who bought on the BCH come up because it skyrocket'd is who got got. clearly you can tell Coinbase has a high influence on what is happening in crypto... so if there's word of them adding a 5th coin down the line, i'd suggest buying early, and the day they drop it as it climbs... sell sell sell.

    It was public knowledge that Coinbase was adding BCH, however Coinbase said they were doing in 2018. A bunch of Coinbase employees bought up BCH then when it went live the price skyrocketed and they sold it off. That's called insider trading and it's against the law. They also took advantage of all of their customers for their own financial gain. If that's ok in your book, by all means, keep supporting them.

    "They" seems rather much, probably a few bad eggs are being blamed for everything... that's like saying every KR employee is responsible for the bad QC. You are quick to turn against the company that helped start your crypto journey.

    black market uses crypto to... they are involved in things not against the law. literally like most podcasts... disclose, its up to you to do your own due diligence before you choose on what to do with your money. that price only skyrocketed because of greed both ways... those who knew BCH was going to drop on coinbase bought early to sell. i'm sure some were coinbase employees... others did this too though. and the other half who didn't wanna miss that "next big coin" so they bought in against their better judgement as the numbers SKYROCKET in a insane number to time... seriously, if you don't do your own due diligence, how can i feel sorry for you for getting got?

    Quick to turn against Coinbase? You make it seem like they're my friend.. They are not my friend, they are a cryptocurrency exchange and they're in business to make money off of us. And boy do they make money off of us! Their fees are some of the highest out there.. Also, you are correct, I am quick to turn against a service I use that decides to do shady shit to benefit its own employees and can potentially fuck over its customers. If my bank did some shady shit like this, you best believe I'm jumping ship ASAP.

    Bad QC on a toy is completely different than employees committing insider trading for financial gain. Please don't try to compare them. Some Coinbase employees deliberately used inside knowledge for financial gain, I still don't understand how you think this is ok.

    What does the black market have to do with ANYTHING we're talking about? Also, I do my own due diligence before investing in anything, so if you're trying to tell me to research before investing, you're preaching to the choir.

    I've been doing fine with my investments without even touching Bcash and I'll continue to do so. By the way, Roger Ver is a piece of shit scammer and I'd rather not be involved with anything he's behind. He tricks people into buying his shitty Bcash by telling them it's the real Bitcoin. Fuck that dude, seriously.

    I hope we can still hug next time we see each other. ;)

    Really? From the few exchanges I've looked at, GDAX has been the cheapest due to the difference in maker vs taker fees. By setting buy/sell limits (being a "maker") rather than buying market (being a "taker") I've avoided paying a single cent or Satoshi in fees.

    I saw one exchange (can't remember which) not only has trade fees on both sides of the trade, but also a flat monthly fee! I'm not about that.

    It’s so funny that I still hear people say this. You sound like old people did in the 90s talking about the internet.

    Bitcoin/crypto currency has been around for a decade at this point, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. People are opening up exchange accounts at the rate of one million new accounts per week. The crypto currency marketcap this morning is $634 BILLION dollars. There is more money in crypto right now than Papa John’s, Foot Locker, Starbucks, Goldman Sachs and Tesla combined, but that’s cute, keep thinking it’s bullshit.

    All I know is that when I see my friends buying new houses and cars with their profits from crypto they invested less than a year ago, that’s somewhere I want to be..

    Because it's so easy to get a response.. just like baiting SW fans who say they "loved" TLJ. If you're that confident in bipcoins then someone making jokes shouldn't make you so upset about it right?

    I look at btc as aol. One day soon it will be worthless but for now it's a cornerstone. DGB looks good and verge is awesome. I am betting on verge hitting $1.00 after the wrath release.

    I've been Rippling, babyyyy! :D

    Seriously, get on an exchange. Forget Coinbase. Selling and buying at market price sucks. There's nothing like waking up in the morning and seeing that a currency dipped, you caught it with your purposely-ridiculously-low buy order, and now it's recovering to a nice profit.

    And @badteethcomics ... don't want to toot my own horn here, but I never made $400 in a day playing Super Mario. But I DID make $400 sitting on my ass doing absolutely nothing earlier this week.

    I wish I had the time to study up on bitcoin. I really wish I would have looked into it 7 years ago when I first heard about it.

    OpenBazaar sounds interesting. With the way eBay has gone, it'd be great if OB becomes fairly well-adopted.
    I've been wanting to sell artwork for crypto - might have to DL OB and give it a try sometime in the new year.

    I think that most of us wish we got into it back then but quite honestly, even if you invest now, you will still be ahead of the curve. Think about it this way: Out of all the people you know, how many of them know about crypto? Now, out of all of those people, how many people have actually invested in crypto? I bet that number is very small..

    Yeah I get that, apparently my wife bought in last week during the down moment. So now I guess we'll have to start keeping an eye on this. It's exciting to say the least. We do a fair amount of investing but this is first time we've ever taken a chance on crypto.

    Dumped about $100 in there a week ago, Now I’ve got $200.

    On another note, I’m so ready for the Zilla app, I can’t wait to participate in ICOs right from my smartphone.. zla.io. The app is supposed to go live this month..

    I only just dipped into this thread and that's EXACTLY what I feel like!

    I got gifted a bunch of stocks (not bitcoin or crypto) a few years ago and found myself constantly checking and thinking/worrying about how they were doing . . . As soon as that realisation dawned I dumped 'em and instantly got my peace of mind back.

    Not dissing it or trying to rain on anyone's parade but it sounds like a few of you might be heading in the same direction.

    One of my resolutions for the new year is to not be so obsessive about checking crypto prices. Considering I plan on holding for the long haul, there’s really not a reason to check BTC prices every 2 hours, unless I actually have money to buy some more..
