You guys realize that even after the great depression, people who stayed in the market eventually made massive gains compared to people who pulled out, right?

You do realize that even after the dotcom bubble, people who kept their money in companies with good fundamentals that were going to continue succeeding, still ended up making more money than people who sold right?

Stop being pussies. Has anything changed? All the libertarian idealistic realities of cryptocurrencies we've all been talking about? Their deflationary nature, their finite supply, their perfect fungibility, their global transmittability, their immutability and duplicability, and generally the fact that at some point in the future, crypto will be the new gold and considered one of the best worldwide asset classes for holding value to withstand economic instability?

Look at places like the middle east and shit tier African countries with inflating fiat. Crypto is literally their financial haven, their saving grace - once they realize this is when it will really take off

Stop being stupid, BTC is still BTC. Your BTC is going nowhere - you still own x% of the entire worldwide supply of BTC that will ever exist

Stop being stupid and hold. Take this as a learning experience, this is really important. Yeah you lost a few hundred or a few thousand dollars. Learn this:

-In volatile markets like this, ALWAYS dollar cost average your way in
-Always rebalance once massive gains have been made. This is literally autopilot "buy low sell high". Rebalance your portfolio to keep your crypto at the same percentage you planned it to be
-Have an entry and exit plan. If you never need it, fucking hold it you idiot this is a long-term investment, keep it for fucking years. If you needed it you shouldn't have invested it you stupid cuck, sell now

Just fucking hold if you can live without this money, and if you can't live without it then sell and rethink your life

People who hold during these signifcant dips are not the smart ones:

Ideally you would sell early during the dip and then buy back in at the bottom - Increasing your overall holdings

Well one could argue that microsoft was one of the companies with the most solid fundamentals, being the software company providing the most sold OS of all times.
If you invested in microsoft at its previous ATH in late 1999 when it was at $58, it took 17 years to break even. After that it has risen to a whopping $72 as of today.

Based on these facts, do you still claim that "buy and hold" is a solid strategy? Considering the inflation in the us dollar, you are not even at break even yet, you might just need to hold another 17 years for that if we go trough another recession.

With all due respect OP, if you don't give an explanation to your mental gymnastics that made you draw these conclusions, or if you, ignore this post you will be proving that OP, is as of regular a faggot for ever.

I've seen too many people get burned on a quick and unexpected rise. You people don't get what a lot of us anons are really holding for - a chance to make it big. We believe that someday these assets that we hold will be worth ALOT. I'm not willing to risk mitigating loss in order to let go of that ticket to the moon. I won't fucking do it. I'll watch every bit of ICN, ANS, TRUST and BTC I own burn to the ground until it's worth nothing and I'll still hold. Sorry if that bothers you man and sorry if you're way smarter than me but this is my plan and I'm sticking to it.

Companies have what is called a book value. That's the floor for valuation - if the company were completely liquidated it would be worth $X per share. The book value of crypto is, and always will be, $0.

This is only true if you own shares in companies that aren't going anywhere. Obviously you're not supposed to sell after a crash because blue chips are meant to be held for a long time. You either have to sell before a crash or if you own and it crashes than just buy more to bring down your cost average.

I'm 100% in on ETH but once it got to $400 per coin I could have taken at least a few gains and bought some normie investments, or even just held it as fiat.

he didn't take splits into account either.

however it is true that buying MSFT in November 1999 would have taken until 2013 to get a positive return, though by today that return would have been 134%. So yes that anon is a retard who doesn't know shit about stocks but his greater point has some truth to it.

But nobody would buy MSFT all at once at its ATH so it's basically irrelevant.

>The dollar is backed by the the most powerful economy and military in the world, you cryptocommie.
The dollar is still only an abstraction and is only sustained because some huan arbitrarily decided so. Of course it will never fall to its true inherent value of nearly zero, but fiat money can be subjected to serious crises in the long term.

It's technically possible but fiat is more practical for that.

Personally, money is only useful as I can spend it on improving my quality of life, so I'm not much one for the "boy gee this might make me a millionaire when I'm 64" model, but it is still valid.

The fact of the matter is 90% of you are not that intelligent and not that well-read either, so you really dont actually know which way its all going to go, you are guessing like everyone else.

>has anything changed?

Yes, a lot has changed you fucking idiot. For one thing, bitcoin trading has become taxable by the IRS. So if you've been doing any worthwhile trading OP, and you're from the U.S., then you just may be on the IRS's radar. Audit anyone?

>Your BTC is going nowhere.
Yeah, okay fuck head. Let's see about that August 1st whenever the coin splits in two.

>Libertarian idealistic realities we've all been talking about?

Yeah, but that's all just smoke people puff each other's asses. The bulk of the Bitcoin market is held by large corporations and holdings companies. Unless you buy btc locally or in some backhanded tedious way, then you're known to the government as a bitcoin holder.

>Crypto is literally the 3rd world countries' saving grace.

Yes, because dirt shit nations, where they worry about power outages and worm water on a daily basis, are wanting to throw their life savings into something that fluctuates ten to twenty percent per day. You're not using your head. People will continue to exchange their currency to USD or Euros because of their stability. In regards to stability, BTC is like driving a 1991 Ford Explorer with the original Firestone tires.

>People who kept their money in companies with good fundamentals during the dotcom bubble were still going to succeed

Yeah, but the whole problem behind the dot-com bubble was that many investors didn't know how to properly value a company which conducts most of its business online.

For example, do you think Time Warner bought out AOL because they said, "Huh, look at this shit company with poor fundamentals. It's a gem!!"?

You speak all of this grand bullshit about fundamentals, but what fucking fundamentals are using to adequately price BTC?

All of the dumbass advice you gave about rebalancing and shit is just ripped from investopedia's guide to pleb investing.

Rethink your life, because you're nothing more than a speculator.

False, the dollar is backed by the government. You must pay taxes in dollars not shill coins.

Also, if you owe a debt. The dollar must be accepted to pay off a debt. I don't have to accept your shill coins, but I must accept dollars because it is the legal currency.

Also, most currencies have coins which have a physical value. I can't melt down shill coins. There's no one to prop shill coin up when everyone flees from that scam.
