  1. Wrong in your view but not in mine, clearly as I've continued to buy. I suggest you read my post. 😁 Also, check my posts when you sold, there is not one when I was quite nasty, but the complete opposite. Go find and post the positive comments I made. Dishonest, once again. I only pulled your leg at a later time along with the others but you then got nasty and of course, I defended my position and I tried to do this objectively and without throwing insults. @jiltedjenAs I keep saying, everyone's financial position is different. Some have a pile, not me, and others not much at all and many in-between. £100k is a lot of money to many (and to me) but do not pretend you know my financial position because you don't but you do know I have done alright on the BTC front considering I've just arrived. 😁
  2. @jiltedjenThere are so many inaccurate statements in this post. You've now returned to admitting you sold through fear, despite denying this yet previous posts confirmed this. and were influenced by @MonsieurCopperCrutchwhich you also denied. You didn't time the market well. You acted out of fear and presented the arguments on this basis, which turned out to be right, in the short-term. I for one would not have made decisions based on your views/fear. No can predict this market with any certainty in the short or long term so I think it's a little insincere to pretend you can. If this is really the case, you would not have sold a bean. You chose to sell, whilst others have chosen to hodl as they do not *need* to sell so you can't berate them for this. It's not about greed is it? Ironic argument as this means that you should have sold at the previous ATH and not held until 202 to sell, thus being greedy. Investors may choose to never take any money off the table and as we know more and more vehicles are coming onto the market to make this a reality. Not sure who the noobs are that you are referring to. I first bought in December. You were not telling anyone to wait until the next halving. You have no idea how much I bought and at what time. FYI, I've bought on the way up and the way down. I am fortunate to be in a position to do this so I recognise it is not the same for everybody. I don't own a home but would not have paid £100k off any mortgage. I just don't see the point. You are starting from scratch. Why, I don't understand taking what is expected to be the hardest money to substitute it for fiat, the weakest money. Even a £50k mortgage would have been preferable to selling out, non? Based on my understanding of the protocol, bitcoin is on sale even at $65k. My rationaleis completely at odds with yours. No skin off my nose unless BTC completely fails. I couldn't careless if there is no ATH this year. I entered with my eyes wide open and have no intention of considering taking out anything unless it goes crazy. Even if it did, the vast majority is staying put. My savings are a long-term play with most of it set for the next generation, if BTC wins. I front-loaded so there is no need to continue buying unless it falls. My oldest now has an account so I fund their purchases from time to time so they can learn about BTC. This will continue on the way up too. To me, this is a worthy saving plan for their future. As for doing a @jiltedjenthat's funny as you mentioned doing a @Buffer BearTo be honest, I would rather have my BTC position than yours. I don't think those who challenge you are haters but like to offer an opposing view to someone who posts as if they are the cleverest person on HPC. Finally, people will take a profit if they choose to. It's about individual choice and decisions. You made yours and everybody else will make theirs.
  3. Ditto and because he has made dishonest comments as highlighted by MCC and JJ also a very vindictive streak. I would never wish anyone ill but he seems to take pleasure in this. There is usually a reason for this type of behaviour. Prior to this I was v supportive of his decision and pulled his leg thereafter but he took it badly and then launched into a full monty type attack. Just as well I don't get so easily offended. I'm guessing JJ is quite young from his reaction. Like us all, he will reach a point where he realises everybody's opinion is irrelevant to his decisions-making. Whilst I personally feel that his comments are made to reinforce his position, whilst actually regretting selling out in total (he will never admit this) I honestly hope it works out for him.
  4. Imho, this makes NO sense. Bought in with a few hundred quid, sell up for a £100k and DCA because now you're rich? How many years will it take you to get back to 2 BTC? 🤔 Coulda held and waited for a v conservative $100k or longer for a conservative $500k in the years ahead and more, given you are young. YET you still have a dig at those who have diamonds hands -why would they cash out and certainly not for a £100k mortgage? You're unbelievable @jiltedjenand more likely a @jiltedjenfull of woe. You shouldn't be if you sold for the right reasons - buying back in suggests they were not. 😁 Only debit and credit card payments I believe, neither of which I use for Kraken and I don't bank with Barclays.
  5. You've gotta be kidding?! @jiltedjen Only weeks ago you were in 'attack dog' mode wishing I was under-water and getting off on it. 🤔 The good news is that I couldn't careless what you think and have continued to buy. If anything, you selling showed lack of conviction, FOMO'ing out as well as being disingenuous about your reasons - you panicked. If you believed in BTC, despite selling and easing your financial burden, you would not have cashed out 100%. You accused me of FOMO'ing in and took great pleasure in. Best decision I made. Honestly. 😁 Isn't in great that I didn't take your advice? I've bought on the way up and on the way down, without any panic i.e. selling out. The point is, all your situations are different, and mine allows for this. To top it off, my student teen also has an account now, overseen by me i.e. I give her money so she can learn how BTC moves and I encourage her to save a percentage of anything she earns. You keep trying to rationalise your position and now DCA. Let's see who is right in 2024/25.
  6. Another masterclass...Good interview, Saylor is left to talk.
  7. Mallers did say he was coming for them...Now we know what he meant.
  8. I think the data presented just blew all the FUD out of the water. Keen to see how this will be reported by the mainstream press who do not have an agenda to keep it going... Brilliant conclusion presented by Saylor at the end.
  9. Just starting. Mining Council @MonsieurCopperCrutch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KbOXG0EMuY

  11. And what are you implying? I'm as clean as you're gonna get. 😁 If only everyone listened with an open-mind. Well put.
  12. An interesting mix. I work in the public sector (operations) and broadly speaking we have moved to up to 50% WFH without negotiation as long site cover is agreed in advance. Believe me, this is a huge cultural shift. In my part of the business, however, most roles cannot be undertaken from home so we will be introducing a 80/20 split, once restrictions are lifted. As for me, owing to the regional structure, and the fact that my immediate peers and boss are nationally based, in theory, I can WFH 100%. I am more likely to do 20/80 or 60/40 at a push if it suits e.g. mainly for after work activities rather than spend time in a noisy office being bothered by people looking for favours! Outside of this, I've got some pretty cool colleagues and have missed being around them in workplace and hanging out with a select few in the evening.
  13. 🤣 That's why I frequent the BTC thread. It's uber-motivational despite others stating otherwise! 😁
  14. 🤯 I use NW so clearly they're currently do not characterise Kraken as a dodgy exchange. I've done a ridiculous amount of transfers I would have expected to flag my account. Will be interesting to if this changes... @markyhIf I was the girlfriend, I would have dumped him for dumping our future!
