    Anyone else hoping for a price correction on ETH? So they can buy a lot more! Made a nice little chunk of change so far, glad this thread was started and got me looking in to it!

    I probably won't buy more, even though the price will keep going up and up. I'm pretty amazed at how much it has gone up since I got in. I'll keep holding ETH until it's 4 digits. Still looking for the next big thing. Will keep my ARK, might get LISK?

    a colleague claims he read about bitcoins last week, invest 5K this weekend and made a profit of 4K.....not sure what to believe


    Question: is it worth understanding and investing in?

    I'd say it did pretty good. All things considered, it shattered records with a $1.87 Billion market cap on the first day, although it has shrunk. I got in for a Gi (Giga-Iota, 1,000,000,000 IOT) the night before it went live on Bitfinex, only 1 exchange! It was an exciting day watching all the action. It hit $1.30 / Mi (Mega-Iota) at one point. I didn't know they were listing in Mi, so when I logged in I thought I had $100k in holdings. I was pumped after that, sadly as so many misunderstood, the reality of their grouping (1 Mi) was a staggering realization lol. There were a bunch of Whales thrashing around large holdings to make profit. It was insane to see some of the amounts being bought and sold so frequently. Now there's little liquidity at the moment as volume is low and people are holding it. That Forbes Article was pretty sweet.

    Considering the drop in price, and the fact that the start of the week coins weren't even $3K, I'd say a 5K investment did not yield a 4K return. If they all ready had coins and just added 5K, perhaps they could have made 4K profit, with enough coins all ready owned and buying and selling at the right time. Otherwise I'd doubt their claim. :/

    If you started putting money into it when this thread began you could definitely have made some nice gains. I'm a little hesitant right now though. I think Ethereum might go above 400, possible close to 500. Maybe. But I'm not putting more money in and have taken a bunch of money out already. Will probably take the rest out if it hits 400.

    Everything is speculation, but I read something about these big currency possibly getting regulated some time and it could burst this "bubble". It probably won't happen any time soon. Reason why I think it will go up more from it currents price. But just want to play it safe.

    Just my 2 cents, not that anyone knows for sure what is going to happen with them though. Could double it current price by end of the year for all I know.

    I got in at 3 different price points for eth, averaging around $200. It was up to $412 but crashed to $250. Up to $360 now though. Lots of weak hands last week. Bitcoin went from $3k to $2k but had recovered to $2500.

    Crypto Currency is still in its infancy. Everything is still proof of work and proof of stake. Get in now, invest time to know ICOs, invest time to know blockchain technology, and understand this will be the future. I just built my new ETH miner 8x gtx1060 GPUs Now I am looking to invest in Litecoin L3 miners.


    Here is some good material.

    Skeptic. They sent you $3500 worth of Ethereum for spending exactly how much?

    What do you mean? He spent $20 and they gave him $3500 in extras. Seems legit to me

    Can't explain it. Setup my wallet, transferred some Bitcoin to make a Waves purchase and a few days later (after I leased my Waves to a mining pool) there's a deposit of 10 ETH. Maybe someone sent it to my address by mistake or the company goofed up, but in my wallet sits 10 ETH that I did not purchase or mine.

    any good resources to read about this? to start.

    I don't wanna drop 5K blindly because it's the future

    Thats crazy! Gotta love new technology. Where else can someone accidentally send you over $3000 and have zero chance on getting it back...

    hindsight is 20/20

    Bitcoin is a long term investment. If you're looking for a quick buck, you'll lose a quick buck. Been in and out since 127.00 and at the time, everyone was saying it had peaked.

    It's only begun.

    Good luck to all!

    There's quick money to be made - if you spot the trends. I knew I should have been on ANS when it was $3. Some funding issues and low and behold, I missed out. Selling during a dip is just silly. Holding long term is the best option, but consider this. Let's just say everyone here bought Ethereum at $200. It's up $150 (and was up $200) from the original investment price. So you had 20 ether, made $3000. You could sit on it and it's safe, or you sell some of that (how about $3000 worth?) and throw it on something risky. Like ANS, when it was just $1. 3000 ANS, sold at $14, is suddenly $42000 made in the course of a few days. For ether to double, it has to go up $350. All it takes is $1 for a $1 coin to double.

    Amazing stories getting written out there boys, here's to hoping we're one of them.
