    What happened to Hardcore Fanofhimself?

    Did his Ponzi scheme get busted and now he can't afford the internets?

    I find it extremely bizarre that since I posted in this thread, my junk mailbox had about 8 messages from some bitcoin mob. Didn't open them - just permanently deleted.

    Sounds like it was the work of the Illuminati shape shifters. Be careful bro.

    Nah, I’m up 100% on my initial outlay though.

    But wow, bitcoin just hit $16k US and is on a big run as it gets listed on the nasdaq futures on Monday.

    This parabolic rise should be met with a big correction, that correction will flow into the alt coins which I own more of so a big boost will be coming my way soon.

    if you plant bitcoins in the ground, does a giant beanstalk grow overnight?

    Microsoft have partnered up with iota which is a 3rd gen Blockchain company. Why are Microsoft partnering with ponzi companies?

    The Australian stock exchange is getting rid of their chess system and moving to Blockchain.

    IBM are partnering with XLM

    You have your head buried in the sand if you don’t believe Blockchain technology is the future.

    the concept of a blockchain iteself has merit & a future..

    however that is a platform, and bitcoin is merely but a product using the platform..

    lots of pain to come for folks who have invested in this particular product..

    It’s still got a fair way to go before it drops a lot. I don’t think it will drop because it’s a bubble, it will drop because people will realise that there are much much more advanced cryptos to invest in. Kind of like how yahoo was the greatest search engine for years then google came along. In saying that, btc might still hold its value as its viewed as the gold bullion of crypto.

    I only hold 20% bitcoin anyway as a hedge. When bitcoin is pumping alts are generally dropping and vice versa.
