    Bitcoin Millionaires?

    Back in 2011 or 2012 this Off Topic Forum was the first time I stumbled upon Bitcoin. There was a ton of hype in here about it if I remember correctly. The process was too complicated & burdensome for me back then to buy some (what a dumbass). I can kick myself for not jumping in back then but who's to say how long I would've held it....probably would've paperhanded it back then for a set of RS's lol. Anyway, anyone in here become a millionaire from Bitcoin from back in the day? Fast forward to today, there's thousands of crypto's out there and I'm currently diversified in a couple of them. One in particular I really have faith in and hope it takes off in the next 3-5 years. I'm not going to shill it but it's Safemoon, do your own due diligence obviously.

      Long before that I knew about it and had a computer capable of mining it in those early days. People who did that way back when and held onto it are laughing at the world now.

        Yeah, I'm in the coulda, woulda, shoulda camp too. but that's ok, with the huge swings, I probably would have lost all of my hair holding this long. I have been investing in regular stuff for a long time though - not a millionaire, but doing just fine playing the long game. :)

          I recently got a couple crypto accounts (also keep a hard wallet) just to fool with it. One of my buddies a few years ago was heavy into it and made some money in it. So far, it’s been so volatile I wouldn’t dare play with money your not willing to lose. Luckily, like Nando, I hooked up with a good money manager years ago and I’m set for retirement. But it’s still fun to play with the sh*tCoin market. 😆😆😆😢 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

            I turned down 285.00 bitcoins roughly in 2013, the customer wanted to pay for a messenger bag in Bitcoin but I turned it down for cash instead. New business and I needed cash since I was hurting from buying leather and giving away product. Fast forward to now and I would be insanely rich, it is a mistake in hindsight but at the time I was trying to just make it. Good news is my company is very good now but nothing compared to the amount I would have made off that Bitcoin. At the time it was next to worthless.

              Not from Bitcoin, but a friend of mine sold a successful building business and used the cash to buy into Tesla in May 2019 when their shares dropped to around $37, sold at the top back in January when they hit close to $800. I thought he was mad a the time (drinking the Elon coolaide), but he's now a multi-millionaire... and a lot more diversified with his investments!

                  A few months ago I unboxed a knife in csgo, sold it for a little over $300, and decided to experiment with crypto so I bought ~$200 worth of bitcoin, etherium, and ada, can't even remember exactly how much. I made money for about two days and then everything crashed, lol. The good news is that everything seems to be rebounding so I'm crossing my fingers I'll at least break even. Definitely wishing I had been courageous enough to reinvest in bitcoin when it dipped to ~$20,000, now it's back up over $45,000. Crazy. Also wishing I'd started mined etherium with my 1070 back in 2016, at least during the cold months.

                    i started getting into the crypto and the stock market during the pandemic. Since the pandemic my son son has no school and i cant bring him into the shop with me(anymore). So i taught myself about the market and made a circle of friends and people that do it as well and made a second hustle doing it. You make money when the market is up, and when its down. They dont teach you that at school. Advice to anyone thats interested in doing it, its better than a 2% savings account if your in it for the long run if you believe in fundamentals( gold,resources,etc.,) the quick moneys will pull your hair.

                      Not a Bitcoin millionaire (yet), but I hold an enviable amount. Also way more Ethereum and Dogecoin (I’m in the top few percentages of holders for all three) as well as millions of certain shitcoins.

                      Once I get rich off the upcoming bull run, I’m either going to buy a super nice E30 or send mine to a shop for a rebuild.
