    As soon as it hits any "regulated" market such as CRIMEX, that will be the time to stop trusting it. Do you want the banksters, manipulators and TPTB to do to bitcoin what they're doing to gold?

    Bitcoin is only doing good because it has Russian backers, just like Trump!

    The current all-time high for bitcoin was reached yesterday when it hit $3360.87. It backed off and it is currently at 3236.02 (Coindesk.com quote) as I type this post. People selling Bitcoin Cash to buy bitcoin.

    As of my writing of this post, Bitcoin is now at $3702.93 (Coindesk.com quote) which I believe is a new all-time high and it is the first time above $3700 that I have seen. Hmmmm.........Bitcoin $4000??? We will see. I need to make more popcorn................

    Another day another milestone for bitcoin. It is now at $3802.53 (Coindesk.com quote) as I type this post. I do not know exactly what the current all-time high is at this point but it apparently may not matter right now since it continues to go up each day. It has gone up about $1800 since the most recent low of around $2000 during the bitcoin hardfork uncertainty/controversy of mid last month. It look more than likely we will see $4000 bitcoin very soon.

    This popcorn tastes very good. I need to get a whole lot more for Bitcoin $4000.

    When it crashes it will wipe out lots of people. Is anybody actually using Bitcoin for transactions?

    Gold and silver aren't going much of anywhere, for the longest time now. Still, I feel so very comfortable plowing every extra buck I can scare up into little "bits" of it. (pun intended)

    Hey! I am investing in "bit" coins.

    It's the hot thing right now with money flowing INTO it........ what happens when people start pulling money OUT of it?
    Seems one should sell a portion to get back principal and maybe lock in some gains because anything going up this fast will go down even faster..... or you just look at it like a lotto ticket.

    $3903 now. Another hundred bux up just this morning. Amazing.
    ...but wasn't it supposed to have crashed by now? Or the grid gone down, or at least a giant CME from the Sun that wipes out the grid? I'm sure one of those will be happening aaaany day now. lol

    It's called a free market. Ie: little to no barriers to entry, let those with the best ideas and products that best serve the consumer, survive.

    Heck, we could make a "GimCoin" if we wanted to.

    You can. The new CaaS (coin as a service) paradigm is just getting started -- e.g.:

    https://www.cryptocoincreator.com/
    https://cryptonotestarter.org/

    The only difficulty is getting enough people to participate and buy in. This would be the only thing distinguishing your bitcoin from "the" bitcoin, your ethereum from "the" ethereum, etc. The technology is otherwise exactly the same -- all that matters is people.

    Don't worry about that huge "investor" ZeroHedge reported. I'm sure there's nothing suspicious or to worry about with a market manipulator with apparently bottomless pockets. I'm sure it isn't a bankster, that makes money pumping and crashing things.

    Another all-time high.................Currently at $4224.83 (Coindesk.xom quote) as I write this post. Damn!!!! I ran out of popcorn. Does anyone have any popcorn? This is the greatest internet show on earth.

    On a serious note, I regret getting out of my bitcoin investment at $1870 in May but I still feel pretty good about the profit that I made when I sold half of my Bitshares (BTS) investment when it was ~11,800 satoshi/BTS (it is currently at 3,857 satoshi/BTS).

    Good luck to all of the speculators, but redeem your initial investment as soon as you can and play with the house's money.
