Wonder how many people are kicking themselves (including myself) for not buying 5,000 bitcoin @ .008 = $40 (when it first came out in 2009)
Now that worth $21,565,500.

Not many. It was just an idea back then. Its not even too late now. Next evaluation is around the $7,000 mark.

The cost of entry is just a bit higher. :130:

But, how many would have held on to it the entire time. That's the tough part and is no different than any investment, especially highly speculative ones.

In another thread I suggested you invest in Litecoin, Ethereum, ripple. All have doubled in value since then. So an investment of only $50K, you'd have doubled your money.

You could have pocketed the $50K profit and still have the same amount of coins invested.

The future is bright, and cryptocurrencies are still in their early stages of growth.

You definitely want to do your research on the coins.

I would stick to investing mostly in the titans: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple.

If you have a look at https://coinmarketcap.com/ invest in the top 10.

Research and invest decisively in the 10 to 20

And go ahead and gamble you money on the cheap ones.
