A few minutes ago I had a look at the BTC price ticker and thought 'ooh, I wonder if it's gonna go below 20k now?'

Now, mere minutes later 'ooh, I wonder if it's gonna go below 19k now?'

I'm so glad I never had any disposable income to put on BTC, because I almost certainly would have been stung otherwise.

@JacksonBates was reading this morning about how a fifo dude nearly had his house deposit saved up. But was in Bitcoin. And now his exchange has halted trading (or something) and he can't even access what's left.

@Quokka yeah I saw that. It's really fucked. I think he was in his twenties? I can definitely see myself having done something like that in my twenties if I had the money for it.

@JacksonBates I bought $20 worth a few years ago for testing a checkout system, part of a project I was building. Forgot all about it until last year when Keybase closed down their wallet, where some partner had been putting free crypto. This was at a time when I was struggling to get paid, so I guess I was one of those people who did win on it. Nearly $500,IIRC. Cashed the lot in, as uncomfortable with it. Of course, just had to pay half of that in capital gains.
