@SVP1, the big/real money in Bitcoin might be over, I cannot see it going from 20K to 200000K at the same pace, but there are other Crypto Currencies like LiteCoin or Ripple that could blow up, I just bought 2500 coins of Ripple at 29cents per coin, yes, 29cents, my thought is that if it hits just 10 dollars I will have taken around $750 to $25000, to me it’s worth the risk, even just the past week, Ripple went to 75cents - not bad for 6 days - to me the $750 is worth the risk, I have never actually put more than $1000 into any blockchain coin, but early adopting them has often paid off, I already have a sell order on Ripple for $10, if it transacts, I will plan the next step

Different things are important to different people. I max out my retirement contributions every year and I’d be alright for four months if I lost my current gig. I’m 35, self made and confident in where I’m at. I travel as much as I can, ski and snowboard every weekend during the winter and surf as much as I can during the summer. I drive a nice car and live in a nice place and eat well. I have a kid and kids are expensive. These things are important to me. Cool for you guys that have over $150k in savings. That’s not super important to me and I choose to live my life differently than you. I just wanted to share a different perspective here so that others don’t feel as shitty for living this way.
