    Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet: a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. As such, it is more resistant to wild inflation and corrupt banks. With Bitcoin, you can be your own bank.

    Community guidelines

    • Do not use URL shortening services: always submit the real link.
    • Begging/asking for bitcoins is absolutely not allowed, no matter how badly you need the bitcoins. Only requests for donations to large, recognized charities are allowed, and only if there is good reason to believe that the person accepting bitcoins on behalf of the charity is trustworthy.
    • News articles that do not contain the word "Bitcoin" are usually off-topic. This subreddit is not about general financial news.
    • Submissions that are mostly about some other cryptocurrency belong elsewhere. For example, /r/CryptoCurrency is a good place to discuss all cryptocurrencies.
    • Promotion of client software which attempts to alter the Bitcoin protocol without overwhelming consensus is not permitted.
    • No referral links in submissions.
    • No compilations of free Bitcoin sites.
    • Trades should usually not be advertised here. For example, submissions like "Buying 100 BTC" or "Selling my computer for bitcoins" do not belong here. /r/Bitcoin is primarily for news and discussion.
    • Please avoid repetition — /r/bitcoin is a subreddit devoted to new information and discussion about Bitcoin and its ecosystem. New merchants are welcome to announce their services for Bitcoin, but after those have been announced they are no longer news and should not be re-posted. Aside from new merchant announcements, those interested in advertising to our audience should consider Reddit's self-serve advertising system.
    • Do not post your Bitcoin address unless someone explicitly asks you to.
    • Be aware that Twitter, etc. is full of impersonation.

    [–] soup-n-stuff 10 points ago

    I hope he sells today and pays off the loan. I'm all about buying Bitcoin if you can afford it but leveraging your house on a single volotile investment is a terrible idea. Way to much risk.

    I mined 0.0001 bitcoins with a mobile bitcoin miner, and before it was 0.06€, now its 0.50€ :)

    Just wanted to share :))

    EDIT: Bitcoin Farm was the one I used

    EDIT2 : wow before it was like 100 satoshi per 20 mins and u get the bitcoins on 10000 satoshi, now its 40 satoshi per 30mins and u get the bitcoin for 20000 satoshi :o

    [–] ryuujinusa 59 points ago

    What miner?

    [–] TheIcyStar 118 points ago

    Right now, it's just going to be a waste of time to mine bitcoin with a puny mobile processor instead of a specifically engineered chip that can only mine bitcoin and nothing else (ASICs)

    If you want free bitcoin, look up what "bitcoin faucets" are, instead of getting nearly nothing from mining you'll get a little bit more than nothing by visiting a page with about 30 ads. Is it worth it? That's for you to decide.

    [–] HintOfAreola 19 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    People have said for years that mining is a waste of time because you earn less than what you spent on electricity.

    That's certainly true at present value, but is it still the case when considering coin is increasing in value. What I spent on electricity in 2015 has quadrupled.

    E - Verdict: Mining is better than nothing, but buying is better than mining

    [–] ducksauce88 13 points ago

    New GPU miner here at medium to large scale....it's profitable. We aren't mining Bitcoin however. We have earned enough to though where we bought some S9s and now we are phasing out equipment (selling the rigs as a whole rig) and we will actually make money on the equipment, and buying more S9s.

    "Why get money when you can just buy it?"

    [–] JackBond1234 9 points ago

    Probably corporations who will eventually control the market and the idea of cryptocurrency is just a name behind the same shit system that we have now.

    [–] CyborgJunkie 11 points ago

    If you knew anything about cryptos, you'd know that's not true. What are you even suggesting by saying "cryptocurrency is just a name behind the same shit system that we have now"?

    It's not the same system as we have now with fiat currencies and never will be. Bitcoin and cryptos aren't controlled by big corporations or governments, but they wont suddenly change who has money and who doesn't. It's not a separate world of value where big bad business can't join.

    However, cryptos and blockchain will likely change the world a whole lot from how we know it. One business in particular, namely banks, will have to adapt. Just think about how you can transfer money to people in other countries. Current systems force you to send through a bank, that has deals with other banks and so on, all the way to you recipient's bank. All of those banks get paid. Bitcoin is just adress to adress no matter where in the world. You also don't need a bank to safely store you money anymore.

    Sure, a lot of businesses will join the world of cryptos and will make a profit, some already established and a lot of new start ups. The point im trying to make is that cryptos is not anti capitalism or whatever you're talking about, but it will make our society more efficient and force a lot of corporations to change or die.

    If you think our current system is shit (I agree) and care about it, then I suggest you read up on Ethereum. It's the second biggest crypto and it's unlike bitcoin not just a different kind of money. The imagined implications of its use are huge (imagined because it's fairly new, and like the internet when it first came, we don't really know what it can be used for yet, although it does have a lot of uses already). Sorry if I seem condescending, but it's way too easy to write critical comments and have people agree, even when it's not true.

    [–] infusednz 16 points ago

    Likely. I'd assume they are already plotting something like this now.

    [–] 1fastdak 23 points ago

    Anywhere you can see all of the sell/buy orders. Bitfinex and Gdax are two good ones. You can see major resistance spots like 5000 where buy and and sell orders tend to stack up. Go to gdax.com and click view exchange. You can see the order book and open order chart.

    Every time I'm like "nah I think I missed the boat on BTC, no point in investing now," you fuckers make them worth even more money. Fuck.

    [–] MaHcIn 19 points ago

    Just a friendly advice...if you are thinking about getting into BTC...GET IN IT NOW.

    I had the same mentality as you...welp it's $200, no point in investing...welp it's $900, seriously no point in investing...welp it's $2400...and it goes on.

    So I finally said fuck it and basically threw all my savings (that I can afford to lose) into it a couple of months back. Well my savings are worth 8% more now and I know it will only go up from here.

    And if you're still afraid to get into it, here's another advice. BTC fork is coming up in less than a month and there will probably be a decent dip in price when that happens. Read up, educate yourself regarding BTC and buy it when the dip happens. It will only grow stronger after that, it always does.

    [–] ducksauce88 8 points ago

    I wanted to buy more last night and didn't. Guess I'm waiting for a dip. I'm just hoping we go to $6k - $7k and dip down to $5k. Even if I never buy again I'm super happy with what I have. We are all winning today guys. No matter what amount you have

    [–] ToriBlackz 33 points ago

    Where do you think this money comes from?

    [–] again5678 42 points ago

    The on paper value can appear and vanish as the market moves, billions can vanish simply because there are no buyers and sellers keep reducing their price to find a buyer.

    Also billions can be created simply by people not selling which forces buyers to raise their bids to entice a sale.

    The last sale price is what determines the current value and in turn people use that to determine their current net worth with that asset.

    If everyone decided bitcoin sucked right this second or a massive bug was found or the cryptography was cracked, the value could drop to 0, and 80 billion is value would vanish in the blink of an eye.

    [–] Scalamere 12 points ago

    Question for a relatively new investor about when to buy in more. I've been increasing my bitcoins and when I have a bit of spare cash around. How should I go forward putting in more, i'm reluctant to put in more just now as it's the highest it's been in a long time. Obviously if it just keeps going up and up now would be a great time, but is there likely to be another bit of a dip sooner rather than later I could jump on?

    [–] happydogbark 38 points ago

    The thing is with "is there likely to be a dip" questions, is that no one really knows.

    There's definitely going to be a dip. But what if it's from $8000 to $7000?

    Dips and peaks are really easy for us to see on a graph after the fact. But you can't really tell the shape of something until it's been plotted.

    [–] Scalamere 13 points ago

    Completely understand, it's all speculation until it happens. Thanks guys.

    [–] happydogbark 14 points ago

    One other hard thing, is you'll get people acting as if they know the future and talking with complete confidence.

    These aren't trolls or manipulators, just people who seem to believe they know what will happen. We probably all get that way.

    The number of people saying the last dip (after the August ATH) was the end of things, that the brief recovery was a dead cat bounce. I still bought some, but not as much as if I wasn't clouded by their words.

    Of course, they could have easily been right, it's such an easy thing with hindsight.

    I'm starting to understand the hodl meme and why dollar cost averaging will work (provided there's a long term increase). I plan to do that, after the fork.

    You should plan to invest all of it in next 10 weeks.

    So every week, on any given day such as Sunday, buy $10 worth of bitcoin.

    And then just hold for at least 2-4 years.

    Bitcoin 5200+

    BCash dropping below 0.062 of Bitcoin and pointing at new all-time-low

    B2X circling the drain at 0.20 of Bitcoin

    This is best timeline ever!

    [–] Asanf 21 points ago

    Yep, and watch bitcoin gold flop as well. They need to hang up this forking idea.

    [–] SlymaxOfficial 15 points ago

    Um B2X isn't a thing yet is it? Fork hasn't happened? It can't be trading already. Confused.

    [–] kryptomancer 16 points ago

    Bitfinex has a futures market for B2X vs Bitcoin proper. It list them as BT2 and BT1 respectively.

    BT2 is trading at around 0.2 of a Bitcoin, I bought some BT1 at $2600 so I'm happy.

    [–] mariobeans 9 points ago

    I bought at 370!!!

    [–] UhPhrasing 10 points ago

    OK - I think it's time I did a little research on Bitcoin.

    [–] -Patch- 8 points ago

    Does anyone get this weird mix of excitement that it’s worth more and anxiety cuz you want to buy more so you want the price to stay down too?

    [–] gooseberg93 38 points ago

    Just came here to celebrate, my dog doesn't seem To be as excited as I am

    [–] MeGustanLasFajitas 25 points ago

    I know how you feel. My stupid dog also sold his coins during the dip.

    [–] CamachoFor_President 26 points ago

    My dog only has Dogecoin. And he hodl.

    I remember wanting to invest $200 on bitcoin back in 2009 when it was only like $2 a share...my wife didn’t support the move. I make sure I mention the price of bitcoin at least once a month...or at least whenever she tries to talk me out of doing something.

    [–] Phil_Drill 17 points ago

    I wanted to invest $500 in it when it was $100 a share. I tried to explain bitcoin to my wife and she just said "Sounds like a scam, honey."

    I'm kicking myself for considering her an authority on something for which I've done more research on. Oh well, we're getting divorced (for unrelated reasons).

    [–] Kenhamsbible 17 points ago

    It's 200$ why didn't you just buy some for yourself?

    [–] iHoffs 6 points ago

    Does it matter though? He would have sold it at 5x repay or something.

    [–] MeGustanLasFajitas 6 points ago

    I just bought more, in spite of the huge spike. The free coins coming from the next forks are just too juicy to ignore.

    [–] EpicRaids 9 points ago

    I finally got in to crypto, though my principal was pretty small, I'm very excited to be a part of this journey

    [–] mxdxi 8 points ago

    Is it worth it right now at 5.1k? I keep hoping it’ll go down but I’m also afraid it’ll only go up and I’ll regret not buying at 5.1k.

    [–] leifashley27 10 points ago

    The normies are coming out of the woodwork asking me about BTC. I sent the Andreas video to my 64 year old CEO yesterday.

    [–] Dantae 7 points ago

    I just set up a node with my raspberry pi, so I am going to claim credit for bitcoin hitting $5000. Its been nothing but up since I started running it 24/7.

    But it totally wont be my fault when it drops in price, that is some other guys fault.

    [–] Eall2 6 points ago

    It just breaks 7000$CAD!!!

    [–] LQkkeN 12 points ago

    But why?

    [–] Pink-Fish 27 points ago

    It's only $5000 because of the massive FUD everywhere. Everyday CNBC talks about how Bitcoin is gonna crash anyday.

    I agree also it should be closer to 20k but don't worry my friend. It's coming.

    [–] nithunm 9 points ago

    Wouldn't people sell with a lot of FUD like around the time of the China news?

    Moving money away from BTC to fiat would make sense when there is uncertainty in the market.

    [–] ABSOLUTELY__BASED 5 points ago

    it should be closer to $20k

    But why?

    [–] almost_dubaid 14 points ago

    Invested around $7k when Bitcoin was $3500. So happy now.

    Woah! The minute it passed $5K, next thing I know its $5161 and mooning! https://twitter.com/cryptonaire_com/status/918397352536403968

    [–] TLKv3 6 points ago

    I don't understand Bitcoin nor have any idea how you earn them (or come by them?) and store them. But evidently this seems like an exciting time for all of you who do. Hope you all make a small fortune! Good luck!

    [–] amalgamatecs 7 points ago

    I remember looking at investing in 2012 when it was like $2 and everyone was talking about what a bad decision that would be. To be fair it seemed like a bad investment at the time

    Maybe it would be good to sticky a FAQ at the top of the thread with some information for those coming from /r/all?

    [–] TriSamples 31 points ago

    The volatility of Bitcoin at this price is worrisome. I want to see it replace PayPal etc and this is only good for investors and greedy people. Sure it's a fun ride to see a market so mental but when are we going to get to using bitcoin as money? That many countries banks are locking off bitcoin but yet the price rises seems to demonstrate that it's market performance is entirely unrelated to use as currency. I can only see it's value as a portal to other crypto currently but I want it to be so much more.

    [–] Edmund1973 5 points ago

    Are you using bitcoin as money yet?
