Is it too late to buy Bitcoin?

Is it too late to buy Bitcoin?

Right now, you may be wondering: is Bitcoin a speculative bubble? And, if it’s not, is it too late to buy in? Well, the answer to that is: it depends. To my mind, the price of Bitcoin is going up because people think it will keep going up. And that’s pure speculation. But not everyone agrees.

  1. Hi Roger, happy new year. This is an interview with Charlie Munger late last year. From 38:35 it gets interesting – he give his view on bitcoin and also what David Ricardo missed about free trade and the consequences of free trade with China for the rest of the world:

  2. I’ve been trading CME products for quarter century and the criticism that they started a BTC contract prematurely and with lack of consultation is very valid. Certainly done with precipitous haste.
    Despite the propaganda and PR, BTC is good for little except HYIP (high yield investment programs), put simple Ponzi schemes.
    Former comment noted Bitconnect, yes they offer “term deposits” of your BTC compounded at 1% daily rolling over every 300 days. So if you deposited $10000 worth of BTC it would be billion $$ after three years. There is no trading bot; it is illegal in most jurisdictions. Companies House the UK equivalent of ASIC served them notice (as they were registered in UK); to prove they weren’t a Ponzi or face seizure. BTC should and will sell at a discount to the gold price, as regulation catches up, at present the lag is ridiculous.

  3. Just change your name to include “Blockchain” as one US company has done and watch your share price go up….just like “tronic” in A Random Walk ?

    Not too late for Betcoin (sic)

    It still find it interesting that many now commenting on bitcoin (investment experts) have missed one of, it not the greatest, investment gains (bubbles) of all time… Whether it is a bubble or not is another discussion, but bitcoin has been around for some time and crypto appears close to almost being considered a legitimate asset class, but many in the financial world have completely missed participating in the gains. The gains have been unbelievable yet participation of traditional investment professional has been scarce. Why is this so?

  5. @ Darren, that is bitconnect. The jury is still out on them. From what I see it is likely a ponzi. They are in the top 20 coin market cap at the moment. I believe they have a bot that scalps bit coins volatility and pays profits back to members and affiliates. As they say if it looks to good to be true probably is.

  6. invest only what you are prepared to lose…. having said that ive got 1 coin and holding for the long term

  7. darren franklin

    Roger i have heard that holders of the bitcoin are receiving a 1%return paid to their nominated bank account on a monthly basis based on their holding and value…this sounds like a ponzi scheme as more money flows in it gets redirected.. i could be way off the mark here…can you shed any light on this?
