Yes he was. $92 I believe when he first mentioned it. I tried to buy some at a few hundred couldn't figure it out and gave up.

Bought a pile of eth though awhile back.

Meh it's fun but land is safer and more lucrative imo.

I know the guys working on Quantum @ IBM & Google.

Their largest investors? the US Military.

LMAO if anyone thinks this will last. The best physicists on both sides of the pacific are working on the most powerful weapon the internet has ever seen, and those weapons will be aimed first at non-state threats before state threats.

Bitcoin/Ethereum, etc will be priority target.

The abilities of Ethereum beyond a crypto currency make it enticing, though if you are speculating it might be best to wait and invest in the technologies that fall out of it. For pure currency speculation Bitcoin will remain the go to for a lot of reasons but I’d expect a lot more volatility before it plateaus. I think it’s also in a lot of danger in being held at this price far too much to keep it moving toward a viable currency, eventaully placing it firmly in the realm of digital beanie babies.

That said, if it dips again below 10k, I’ll buy more.

You can also get most of what I said just by reading online.

https://research.google.com/pubs/QuantumAI.html

ADD: Keep in mind these are private sector USA solutions. Every military/government in the world is working on their own solutions.

I'm not unaware of quantum, or it's implications for blockchain. I'm in the process of diversifying my portfolio to include quantum-resistant currencies.

Yup lots of people talk about quantum resistant cryptography, but consider me a skeptic on how viable they would be for cryptocurrencies. Remember that the currency still has to be efficient/easy to use, etc. Not an easy task!

Agreed. There are a lot of potholes and uncertainties in the road, for sure. This is a big reason why I haven't had a good night's sleep in some time. I can't stop researching, reading, formulating, studying. It's all so fascinating to me.

QC's can definitely bring blockchain DLT technology to its knees by theoretically being able to get everyone's private keys from the public key during a transaction and then forge (steal) the transactions for themselves.

QC's are already out there, but at least on the transaction mining side, the cost far outweighs the reward currently.

Most of my investment is in a long position in a QC resistant crypto, but QR was maybe the 3rd reason I chose to go that route.

I cashed in at 2k, have cashed $500 out. Itís currently worth $3,200.
Trying to get buy/sell to the point that Iím at a zero cost average and playing with house money. Will I be kicking myself in a few years that I didnít just let it ride? Maybe. Probably.

But Iíve gotta maintain my rule of investing, take your gains!

Coinbase is your best place to start.

TJ, do you mine?

I’ve got a buddy who set up a business building crytomines and consulting. That’s damn near as good of an idea as investing.

Anyone thinking about investing in BitCoin should study the dutch tulip mania bubble. It appears to have much of the same characteristics.

BTW I do think blockchain technology will have very big impact on business and supply chain operations.

I bought .1 BTC, 1 ETH and 10 LTC around the same sort of time (end October, early Nov when BTC was around £4800, ETH £237 and LTC around £50 I think. Total investment around £1500.

Thats worth today around £4000 ish, so standing at about £2.5k profit.

It's a shame in hindsight that I didn't invest a bit more, but if you are putting yourself in danger by doing so; then I guess it's a wise choice.

I'm liking the recovery over the past week - particularly last couple of days. So hell, if it works out REALLY well, I might get across to a Broncos game one day

Yeah, the only regret I have is not educating myself and getting in earlier.

Wall Street will be more involved by the end of Q1, so I think we haven't seen anything yet in regards to how high some of these cryptos can go.

I agree with the sentiment. Cryptos are here to stay, but I'm not sure pure blockchain cryptos can overcome their scalability and increasing mining/transaction fee issues.

There are a few alt-coins flying under the radar (currently not for sale on Coinbase/GDAX) that are concentrating on being minerless/feeless and fast to take advantage of blockchain DLT's shortcomings.

Pretty exciting stuff out there though in regards to instant microtransactions, data collection/selling marketplaces, and machine to machine economies.

I am the opposite of this thread. I buy when things look worthless. Houses in 08-09, silver at $15 still close to that. Look for farm ground next. Guys are growing broke big time.

I'm waiting for houses to decline again so I can buy one. I'm hoping the effects of tax reform will make demand decline, particularly here in southern California where prices are on a tear. With a combined SALT deduction for a couple of just 10k, that means the property tax deduction is essentially dead since my state income taxes would eat up almost the entire 10k. I'd probably still itemize if I bought a home in the mid 600s, since mortgage interest alone would be about 20k a year and the loan would be under the 750k cap but alot of folks might not and stick with the standard deduction of 24k.

But supply is still tight here so it's concievable that prices still might not decline too much.

Right now my budget would be up to 640-650 but the type of home I want in the general area I'm looking to buy is priced in the high 700s...like 760-780 so I need a decent sized correction and I don't think tax changes alone will do it. If we dip into a recession that might do it, tho. I need a 15% drop.
