You bought an old book at a fair, and upon returning home, you discovered a seed phrase inside that gives access to a wallet with 46 bitcoins. What would you do?

Can the owner be found?

How many people actually understand Bitcoin in your life?

I haven't met any orange-pilled person in my life yet. All the orange-pilled people have only existed on the internet for me. What have your experiences been like? Are we truly early, that so many people still haven't understood it? This thing is exciting, curious, hopeful, and awesome, and yet people ignore it.

You guys are welcome

Just decided to buy a bit of a lump sum while BTC is at 57k. It has a tendancy to dip even more after I buy a lump sum like this. Expect cheaper sats in the near future.

Maybe it's time to give the 10k BTC guy a break, since there is a bigger joker in Germany.

Hit 0.21 yesterday


My story is familiar. I’ve known about Bitcoin since 2012. I used to play games with nerdy guys at school who told me about Bitcoin but I was too young and didn’t have the means to buy any

Then I became a bit of a hippie girl after school and spent 8BTC on psychedelics and weed around 2015

Early December last year I had saved 6.5k from a job and living with family. I had to leave work for mental health reasons and decided I should invest what I had. I looked at Bitcoin, saw it was climbing slowly again, but this time studied it. I read this sub a lot, I read the Bitcoin Standard, and listened to podcasts.

I started with 0.05. But after a month of learning, I gradually ended up going all in and a week before the ETF, I had 0.17 on a Bitbox.

The road to 0.21 took me six ridiculously frugal months. I’m still not in work but have no bills and get disability for autism

I don’t know what the future holds for me. I struggle with traditional employment

But here’s to 0.25 by the end of the year!

How is everyone so sure about future of bitcoin?

Before saying I am spreading FUD, I own ~.1 bitcoin and do believe in its technology, the network, and application to problems. My question is how do some people have such strong conviction of the future to put the majority of their net worth into it?

Who has some good rice & beans recipes? I want to go next level with saving money for more Bitcoin

I admit I’ve been a little carefree with my money and wish I had saved more of it for Bitcoin. I’ve read on here that rice & beans is the classic meal to save money and I’m trying to be more frugal. Anyone have some good recipes? From simple to a little more complex, if you got something good let me know.

Thank you!

If you NEED to sell your bitcoin in the next 3 months, what is the optimal strategy

bad timing with the recent dip, as i found out last Thursday that need to sell bitcoin to fund some unexpected repairs on my home and car. the amount is not huge, let's say 4k.

what would you do? wait for the price to bounce back a touch? get it out now before we (maybe) fall into the 40s or worse? right now I have placed limit orders on Coinbase at various price points to DCA out, a few hundred dollars at 60k, 62k, etc. Any other ideas to maximize fiat return?

sorry if not allowed, thanks.

Fun fact: I've lost more fiat to the banks than I've lost BTC.

So the other morning I get a notification on my phone about a suspicious transaction, asking to reply yes or no to approve it. I've received these before so no big deal. I replied no, and within minutes my banks fraud department called, cancelled the charge and assured me my card was now blocked and I'd need to get a new one. No biggie, thanks for catching it! 11 hours later my phone goes nuts with about 30 of these messages and my bank account was completely drained. So the fraud department failed to shut my card off. They had one job! Now I have to dispute all charges ranging from $2 up to $500 per transaction and wait 10 days to hear a resolution.

FORTUNATELY I am all-in with BTC and treat it as my actual savings account, while keeping enough in the banks to cover expenses until the next paycheck. Basically forcing myself to live paycheck to paycheck while putting the bulk of my wealth out of reach of my impulse spending on luxury crap.

Anyways, to those saying BTC is a scam or you'll lose it all, etc, etc. I say that's a risk I'm willing to take after this experience and glad I did!

I'm very proud of that.

Today, I don't care about the 70 percent drop. I started "stacking" Bitcoin, buying Bitcoin regularly. Every Bitcoin purchase has made me freer.

Today, my life is very different from before Bitcoin. I can work in the field that fascinates me and bring this technology closer to other people every day. And something else has changed in my life, perhaps even the most important thing:

Bitcoin has allowed me to lower my time preference. I have found a way to save my purchasing power. I can save. With Bitcoin, I look forward to the future because all of humanity can use a monetary system that is independent and accessible to everyone. Inflation is not an issue for me. For me, everything will always be cheaper in the long term with Bitcoin. I can concentrate on the here and now and make well-considered decisions without being afraid of the future.

I will do everything in my power to spread this technology, no matter what obstacles await me and no matter how much headwind I face.

For me, Bitcoin is no longer an investment. Bitcoin is freedom for me.

How Bitcoin improved my life

At the end of 2020, I made a New Year's resolution to buy Bitcoin. Little did I know that this would be one of the best decisions of my life. I want to share my story with you here and get you excited about Bitcoin.

After I bought #Bitcoin for the first time in January 2021, the price plummeted from an all-time high, leaving me clueless a few weeks into my Bitcoin journey. What initially looked like one of the most lucrative investments in human history turned into a nightmare. I "lost" almost 70% of my savings in a very short space of time.

When I realized this situation, I asked myself the questions: "What did I actually buy?", "What is Bitcoin actually?". I couldn't answer these questions at the time, as I had only dealt with Bitcoin superficially.

So I had work to do. I had to teach myself what Bitcoin actually is and why I shouldn't sell my entire stake now. This task turned out to be more challenging than I had expected. I couldn't find the right approach, I didn't know where to start.

Since I dealt with investments in my spare time, I largely only looked at Bitcoin from this perspective: Bitcoin as an investment to accumulate more fiat money.

After several days or weeks of searching for the answer to the question of what Bitcoin is, a book was recommended to me: The Bitcoin Standard by u/saifedean and u/aprycotmedia as publisher. The hurdle was high, but Bitcoin grabbed me. I was fascinated by the mystery behind this technology. Why don't I understand it, why can't anyone explain it to me in an understandable way? This book was supposed to be the answer!

At the beginning of the book, the history of money and the problems of earlier forms of money were introduced. I had a feeling that the euro had problems, but I didn't realize they were so big and so devastating. I first considered Bitcoin as an alternative monetary system because I realized that Bitcoin has the best monetary properties, even better than gold.

After reading this book, I no longer knew what was right and what was wrong. Had I been living a lie my whole, albeit short, life? The next few weeks were to be the most intense and formative of my life. It was as if I was possessed by the knowledge that awaited me. Family and friends didn't know what had gotten into me. I dropped out of my degree in business psychology because I suddenly had a different view of economics. The Austrian School of Economics destroyed all the economic theories I had learned up to that point. Within two months, my whole life had changed.

I felt the need to pass on the information I had gathered and was met with rejection. No one I was excited to tell about Bitcoin was interested in my thoughts. "It will never catch on", "You live in your own world", "That's far too utopian". From today's perspective, this time was painful, but also necessary. I needed resistance from outside to convince myself of Bitcoin.

Nevertheless, my need to communicate was not satisfied. I looked for another outlet: social media. I started sharing my thoughts on Instagram under the name u/BitBeller. I was able to write my opinion without encountering much resistance. I even received approval! u/Satoshis_Erbe, u/thiele_julius, u/bitcoin__apex & u/atomicc0805 were the first to give me the same energy that I wanted to put out there. I am very grateful for that!

There was another hurdle to overcome. What am I going to do with my life now? Another degree course was out of the question for me. I had to reorient myself. I heard about a job as a social media manager at u/Coinfinity, the oldest Bitcoin broker in Austria. Integrating my new hobby, Bitcoin, into my day-to-day work sounded like a perfect match. I applied and was hired. Together with u/fabthefoxx and u/fichte42, we worked on short articles to make it as easy as possible for beginners to get started with Bitcoin: Exactly what I was missing a few years ago. The #BitcoinBlinks were born: Today they are even available as a small book.

Slowly convinced Bitcoin is the future

Looking at global news today, starting to realise that the systems are broken everywhere. Euro dropping because of the French election, 40 years of US presidency born in the 1940s, massive corporations admitting guilt of fraud leading to death. Crazy that this is just another normal day and nobody blinks an eye. How much longer do people think this can keep going?

Mt Gox has only pushed $148m of the agreed repayments (1.7%) to customers so far and there's another $8.2b (141,379 BTC) worth to go until Oct 31st

Mt Gox has made it's first repayment of $148 million of the owed $8.2 billion (141,379 BTC) to its customers so far. This leaves a significant amount still outstanding, given the downturn what are the implications of this volume of BTC potentially re-entering the market on selling pressure?

Acquired 0.02 BTC at 16. What do I do?

As the title says, I just got 0.02 BTC at 16. What is the smartest way to go about it? It’s a pretty big amount of money that I have in, and I would like to know what would be the best idea to do with it. 0.02 BTC is around $1100.

Bitcoin vs. buying a house?

I have a question for the group and looking for some insights and opinions. Slowly built myself up to owning slightly over a third of a bitcoin. But I find myself in a unique situation of selling our house and walking away with a really hefty six figure sum in our pockets. What I’m struggling with is whether to put that into investing in bitcoin or buying a house. We would have enough money left over to buy a house with cash. Or invest and rent. I know along with owning a house comes all the maintenance and cost taxes, etc. also not super confident in the value of property with companies like Blackrock buying everything up and turning them into rentals. I also know there is its own risk with bitcoin. At this point, I don’t feel like there’s much financial risk with bitcoin more of managing your bitcoin safely. So with that being said, I’m curious if you were in my shoes, what you would do and why?

The secondary question would be if you were to decide to invest who would you use and how would you hold it?

If you were buying bitcoin at 65k you should be still wanting to buy now knowing that you are getting a bargain. If you bought bitcoin at $900 a coin as i did when i started you should be wanting to buy bitcoin knowing what the potential is.

How do you buy?

For long term hold- 30-40 years.
So do you buy your bitcoin when you have red days or do you just purchase a set amount each month?

Do you also invest in ETFs or in other stocks? Or just Bitcoin?

I see value in just putting money into it slowly each month but was curious what your strategy is.

S&P 500 vs Bitcoin?

I can invest £1000 per month.

I am interested in what percentage would people invest in S&P 500, to not be totally "at risk" vs how much Bitcoin l should buy?

The importance of managing your liquidity

Fiat is not a good store of value but Cash is not trash. It is opportunity. It's what allows you to DCA and buy dips. The Mt. Gox payout maybe one of the best remaining opportunities to buy a significant dip if a lot of creditors dump even some of their coins. You don't want to miss out on that! Being skint sucks when opportubity knocks.

Best positioning

Once you have been here as long as myself life gets so easy. Have a huge bitcoin position and a nice fiat position. All you have to do is sacrifice everything for about 8 1/2 yrs. No going out, no fancy anything. Just putting EVERYTHING after bills into cold storage. The best way to do this is to get a partner that gets it and spend the time with them fucking. For me it is the best thing I ever did financially. I am ahead of everyone in my life by a long shot. I know, trust me I know how fucking hard it is to hold and just keep buying in the red but that only lasts about 4 years. I believe it was harder for me to keep buying when it was wayyyyyyyy above my average price. So don’t lose hope. This is the safest way to build a fortune. Good luck.
