Bitcoin Take?

Always love to bounce this kind of stuff off the Planet. Have any of you done any research into Bitcoin, and if you hold any opinions on the concept I'd love to hear what you think.

Just dumped $10k on bitcoin (bought in at $16.1K) it's been up and down but I'm waiting for my 7 days to be done (12/14) with so the transaction can settle and I can hopefully start "daytrading" with my bitcoin wallet and such.

Planning on buying Litecoin but can't put any more money into coinbase until my transaction settles from last week.

So as of right now I've profited $4500. And currently up about $1000 since my bitcoin purchase.

Could've doubled my $15k GBTC investment if I would've been even more patient.
Well, even though the lost opportunity has to sting a little, that's still a strong win.

My first purchase was at the beginning of November, and I've made a number of small purchases since then. So far I've put in a total of $5,650 and it's now worth $11,000. Not bad for a month.

I know Rain Man has no ill intentions, but it isn’t the smartest to disclose on a public forum how much crypto you hold.

North Korea may be making a fortune from bitcoin mania
by Sherisse Pham @Sherisse
December 12, 2017: 4:37 AM ET

http://money.cnn.com/2017/12/12/tech...ard/index.html

Speculators aren't the only ones cheering the runaway bitcoin boom -- North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may also be celebrating a windfall.

In recent months, experts and officials say North Korea has been "mining" bitcoin, demanding it as ransom payment and outright stealing the digital currency.

"It is a fact that North Korea has been attacking virtual currency exchanges," said Lee Dong-geun, a director with South Korea's state-run Korea Internet and Security Agency. "We don't know how much North Korea has stolen so far, but we do know that the police have confirmed the regime's hacking attempts."

North Korean hackers targeted four different exchanges that trade bitcoin and other digital currencies in South Korea in July and August, sending malicious emails to employees, according to police.

Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency that lives on computer servers. The virtual coins are "mined" by complex algorithms and recorded in a digital ledger.

Experts say it's unclear how much bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies North Korea has amassed.
"It's reasonable to assume some -- and the value is increasing significantly at the moment," said Bryce Boland, Singapore-based chief technology officer with cybersecurity firm FireEye.

Experts say the attacks are likely to continue as bitcoin's price skyrockets. It started the year below $1,000 but has soared more than 1,500%, crossing $17,000 for the first time last week.

It's not just bitcoin's dizzying gains that make it appealing to North Korea.

The digital currency was designed to operate outside of the control of governments or banks. That's likely to appeal to North Korea at a time when the U.S. is stepping up efforts to cut the country out of the international financial system over its nuclear weapons program.

It has also proved popular in the past with criminals because of the amount of anonymity it allows. Bitcoin isn't tied to any central bank, and payments can be made anonymously without using banks as middlemen.

That could help North Korea convert its stash into money it can more easily use.
Bitcoins are often held in accounts with online exchanges. But Boland points out that hackers can easily swap them into more obscure cryptocurrencies, move them to other exchanges and eventually withdraw them in traditional currencies like dollars.

"They could do those transactions very quickly ... and avoid traceability of the cash," Boland said.

North Korea has repeatedly denied involvement in international hacking attacks. But it has made no secret of its interest in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Last month, the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology touted a lecture from a bitcoin expert who came to North Korea to teach students about the technology behind the digital currency. The university is a high-profile institution where scions of the North Korean elite study.

"Many excellent technical questions were asked about the inner working of bitcoin, its risks, and the measures taken to ensure security," the university said.

Boland said FireEye believes North Korea is "developing a significant number of people who understand bitcoin so they can expand their operations."

That's likely to mean more attacks on exchanges and other cryptocurrency targets.

-- Taehoon Lee contributed to this report.

I understand diversifying your portfolio, but I truly hope for your sake that your day trading days are done, because you don't seem to be very good at it. If you had put $10,000 in BTC on April 1st and left it, you'd now have ~ $160,000, not even counting your BCash or Bitcoin Gold.

ETH would be ~$128k, LTC ~$460k.

Are you a cop?

I'd rather not comment on the exact amount I've profited or have total (for obvious reasons) but life is going great right now. If I can 2.5x what I have right now I think I would be considered actually legitimately rich.

No I'm not very good at it, but I had a bunch of shitcoins like DGB and XRP and rode those up and then held them like an idiot while they went down.
I didn't have any BTC or LTC and very few ether.

Damn. Good for you. Not to say I'm not a little envious. I'd imagine most serious poker players are in a similar boat. That Black Friday thing kinda worked out after all.
