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.

Just think what a $100 investment when it was 1 cent would be today.
1 Bitcoin is at $21,489.22 Canadian

I know a few people who've invested in this - but I don't know, there's just something not right about this.

Like they say, if its too good to be true - it probably is.

heh, I remember losing a few hundred BTC due to the Mt. Gox debacle. (not mine, was a donation pool for running a website). Luckily, we didn't lose all of it, and the site carries on today largely due to the massive increase in BTC value. :up:

So $100 dollars investment back when Bitcoin was 1cent per/Bitcoin = 10,000 coins

10,000 × $21,489.20 = here is that ouch moment, now if you waited & sold them at that price $214,892,000

When bitcoin first came out it was .08 cents. Im not sure but I dont think you could go out and buy them. A person would have to mine them.

Oops my bad, so one mines for 10,000 bitcoins at a cost of $800 dollars instead of $100 dollars. It could be done, since 1 person was able to mine for 1 million bitcoins in the earliest days.

Mining wasnt that easy, and it was at random. In the begining the blockchain algorithm was easier to solve, and a miner could get 25 bitcoins. As the blockchain became more difficult miners would have to pool together and split the 25 bitcoin reward.
