Bitcoin revisited

Broke through $4000....... Still intrigued. Still haven't found a way to invest in it. Price has skyrocketed over past four months and it has designated into two classes of Bitcoin. Old threads here reveal some interesting predictions. I will find a way to get involved, even if to a very limited scale. It could have legs in ten years....

It could also be confiscated as it is used to support sterile transactions of terrorists, organized crime (spyware/malware), and foreign interference peddling

After over 35 years selling into financial services, I can only relate that all the bank guys I know are staying away from it. Too easy for fraudulent transaction/criminal activity to take place.

I'm done

Yes, Bitcoin is often used for illegal activities. Start here:

GBTC is a viable option if you get by the 2% mgt fee they charge for doing nothing.... Of course that pales in comparison to the >85% premium one has to pay..... Investors in bitcoin have made some life changing gains over the past year plus. But as a classically trained economist/investment advisor, there are some very red flags flying....
Chef, can you tell me you would ever consider paying 85% premium for anything? Just presenting the other side of the risk coin.

Gbtc is way over priced for the amount they actually hold, I agree 100% . Thing is Gbtc is the easiest in for the average Joe . Soon as more options are available , it will tank .

Just buy actual Bitcoin in person or from an exchange like Coinbase .

Lol , saw that ! Only down 17% now . I imagine lots of early adopters and investors to take profit as the price closes in on 5 k .

Check out ethereum , Monero and litecoin

People made a killing collecting and selling beanie babies and Pokémon cards too.

The higher the risk, the higher the reward or the loss.
