    That's such a shame. I'm really sorry to hear that.

    . My regret rate tends to be very low when I'm "trimming the flock," but it does happen from time to time.

    I'm a big believer in cryptocurrency as well. i could never go all in like that guy. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't buy BTC at these levels. We are finding more and more regulations. Also, the governance is a big issue for me. There's a major issue between the developers and the miners. The verification times and cost are no longer a "selling" point. I think there's potential there, but I'm not so bullish on BTC. More so on ethereum, but I think they are overpriced as a service, not a store of value. (I hold ARK and QTUM)

    The very first rule about investing is don't invest in something you can't afford to lose. His chance may pay off but still a foolish thing to do.

    And for how many years have they been saying this with Bitcoin? It's been at least since the big outburst in 2013.

    I'm a big believer in the tech and the ideals behind Bitcoin: decentralization, taking back financial power from The Man. It's the ultimate Libertarian money system.

    It's been great as a store/transfer of wealth and great everyone's making money, but it's become useless as an actual currency. The outrageous fees and transfer times sort of doom it for widespread adoption for everyday use.

    Something like Litecoin should have taken off for usability, but I guess we're all too fixated on the speculation of BTC.

    LTC or BCH are just crippled clones of BTC. So far they do not have devs coming with features. They just copy BTC proposals. Their capacity is maybe ~ 10x higher, but it is a trade-off with security.

    Their blocks are also empty. Why? Why whole world ignores so great altcoins for real use? LTC namely is way overpriced. So much hype, yet no real use and people still use bitcoin with "high fees".

    And as for high fees. My last 10 transactions were < 0.1 USD. Now I need to send money, so I will pay finally like 3-5 USD. It is still extremely cheap for anonymous payments where bank does not wake me up in midnight with silly questions and paperwork.

    I can't stand BCH, Bitcoin Gold, or any of the other self-serving garbage forks, but LTC doesn't seem "crippled" to me at all when compared to BTC. It's a clone yes, but it's a clone with seemingly better technology to handle faster transactions. That seems like a reason to clone something if you improve on it. Maybe I don't understand the tech of it enough, but that's what I've read and experienced from a handful of LTC transactions.

    Absolutely - I love the use of Bitcoin compared to scam fiat banking and it's great for transfers of wealth and the things we do with it. That's kind of a niche use, though.

    My point is that to really reach that critical mass of adoption it would need to cater to the masses who make lots of small quick cheap transactions. Bitcoin is not good at that in its current state.

    Sure, you can make Bitcoin transfers for < 0.1 USD, but how long will you have to wait for that to confirm?

    There are also still anonymity issues that are solved by coins like Monero, but no one's really taking advantage of that yet.

    Love cryptocurrency, but I don't think BTC is winning because of the tech or convenience. It has brand recognition and everyone's making money with it.

    Just looked it up on Coinmarketcap... bad day for SPR down over 15%.
