23 Dec This personal bitcoin experience blew my mind. I am speechless.
I gave bitcoin to some friends years back ranging from 30-60$, some for free, and others was due to a purchase. I educated then on security and backup.
Due to the holidays I contacted them and causally mentioned the bitcoin price.
I told them to open there wallet and look at todays value. They all went up 20-40x. One person sent me a screenshot, it showed the value of when they originally received it, $37.66, and the value currently which is $1,764.70.
The part that blew my mind despite all of them having a much greater value than original( making substantial profit), NONE where interested. They acted like it’s no big deal. They had absolutely no interest in investing more (even though they easily can, they aren’t homeless, etc…) Even when I mentioned they can have bitcoin in their RRSP (kinda like a 401k in US) their eyes got a little bigger, then back to same size.
So these people saw with their own eyes and money and are still not interested.
One person came into an inheritance of about $100k, he said he invested all in stocks (advice from financial advisor) and DOES NOT WANT ANY MORE IN BITCOIN. (his original investment was maybe $1000)he was almost aggressive with me, he did not want to invest another penny in bitcoin.
THAT BLEW MY FUCKIN MIND!!!
I’m drinking tonight.
