    May 28, 2017 A decade of dominance

    anyone f--king with it? im sure most people heard of bitcoins but there is other digital coins popping up like ethereum that was selling for 8 dollars months ago now its up to 170 and growing. its gonna fall a little bit and im gonna drop a couple stacks on it. if people bought $100 worth of bit coins in 2010 they would have 35 million today.

    Yeah but its not too late. If you have 2100 for a bitcoin right now it could possibly double ur money by end of year. I have 2 and I'm gonna buy 10 shares of ethereum which is right behind bitcoin. Then you got litecoin at 30 dollars which will go up.. or you could even buy ripple at 20 cents... do your research.. this is the future. Just look at the charts.

  5. I'm still sick in my stomach from not buying bitcoins back when I came across them in 2012. I bought one a few years ago to buy a certain research chemical online a few years ago and had a little of it remaining but can't seem to find the wallet that I used.

    But yeah ethereum looks to be promising. Im also taking a risk on some lite coin. I think buying mutiple of these currencies and as long as one of them turn out to be half of what bitcoins is at you could make a huge investment profit. I remember when Silk Road was still open and me and a friend joking about cryptocurrency being the next big thing.

    will forever hate myself for not buying a bitcoin when i was 12.

    @JMG be careful, there are a lot of "pyramid scheme" crypto currencies popping up. seen a few/had f--king uber drivers try to scam me with them. never heard of ethereum, just do a lot of research.

    here's my list that i'm tentatively looking at to invest in + some rough notes:

    ripple:
    $0.27
    reduce financial tx fees; backed by some banks already
    medum for converting any currency into any other one without relying on a central exchange
    think of it as a new paypal, where there are no (limited) fees. paypal acts as an intermediary to allow you to send money over the internet, but it's centralized and charges high fees
    “enables banks to settle cross-border payments in real time, with end-to-end transparency, and at lower costs.”

    siacoin:
    $0.17
    decentralized data storage

    maidsafecoin:
    $0.49
    decentralized data storage

    monero:
    $51.69
    anonymizes btc; built on privacy first
    sounds like the tech & capabilities are higher than those of dash

    dash:
    $181.41
    anonymizes btc; hsa some privacy settings built on top of the protocol

    ethereum:
    $390
    api to build apps ontop of blockchain system
    microsoft, intel, etc. backing

    factom:
    $31.72
    similar to ethereum & btc (?)

    litecoin:
    $44.75
    sounds similar to btc

    gridcoin:
    $0.08
    benefits humanity by advancing the progress of medicine, biology, climatalogy, math, astrophysics, etc.

    firstcoin:
    $2.48

    With Coinbase, you can only buy the big 3? What about the other 700 or so? Just not worth it?

    @Slyk how do you buy your recommendations? Where do you do your research?

  18. Crazy I didnt know there was a community here for crypto currency. I am big into Ethereum. I was told by my brother in law in August of 2015 to invest in ethereum because he works in that industry and had a lot of faith in it taking off. I am a risk taker as is so I took my emergency fund of 10,000 USD and bought 10,000 Ether at a dollar a piece. Needless to say you guys can do the math but it has been both life changing and nerve wracking. I literally watch ethereum trading all day but I am holding out in hopes of reaching 1000 some day. I have taking a little out to pay off my loans and am looking to possibly take a bit more out help diversify. If you guys have any questions let me know!

    Bought at ~$400 towards the end of 2013, still holding them. Will probably go up as long as a republican is in office @ the US.
