Should have bought Bitcoin when, Nostradamus? It was once $20,000 per coin, and last I saw it was worth under $6,800.

Some stock markets have had near-steady increases since March 2009, including a massive (20%) increases in 2017 alone. That kind of growth is unsustainable without some pullbacks. An 8% drop in a week is a bit harsh, and it may very well get much worse before it gets better, but since all other economic indicators seem quite strong, this seems like an unavoidable stock market correction and will seem to have been a great buying opportunity several months from now.

We'll see if that holds true for Bitcoin at these prices or not, but as an "investment", you can have it.

Pfft, bitcoin is old and slow. It's litecoin or etherium now. It's on the down hill slope, cash out. There are always fluctuations in the stock market, it is a ten year game. Pound's doing well

Haha when it was $7000 I posted in a thread here words to the effect of "that's unsustainable! Sell!!!" lol

I'm no Nostradamus. But that seemed insane at the time.

There was a time when a horse cart was a great investment.
There was time when telecom offering SMS service was a great investment.

and there was a time when Bitcoin might have been a great investment.
