    Now that it broke 20k, look for it to hit 30k in a rather short period of time. IMO

    Very highly invested in this, and this looks like another great time for bitcoin.

    Took around 3 years to get back here, but we are back.

    Great story on bitcoin mining in Eastern Washington..It's an old story from 2018 but fascinating never the less.
    Pretty nuts the amount of electricity it takes to "mine coin" (prime numbers)

    I've read this story a few times over the past few years..Mind blowing really.

    $21k. If you want to keep money in bitcoin, Nitrogen and Betcoin are nice places to play.

    It's legit.

    It got out of hand in the beginning. Had a period were people treated it like a joke.

    It's now becoming main stream pretty damn fast. Don't be surprised when its in the 30s by next week.

    Could see around 60k by mid Feb. IMO

    I sold half of what I had at 21k. I didn't think it would continue to increase like this in just 24hrs.

    If companies that make no money can IPO 30-50-100B that I don't see why it can't keep going up. The finite aspect to it creates scarcity.

    You'll have no problems getting paid and withdrawals are fast from both. Brand new people should sign up at Nitrogen if you are in the US. Betcoin is great for those outside the US. I'm grandfathered in to Betcoin but no more new sign ups from the US.
