I do not think Magic Beans will make the slightest bit of difference. There is more to life than getting immersed in Bitcoin culture, Magic Beans, Is that something to do with leprechauns?

Who really knows if there will be a tulip moment for cryptocurrencies.

Either way, out of the ashes will come.
  • - Lower infrastructure and administration costs for business
    - Smart contracts - removing layers of intermediaries
    - Immediate authenticated data-transfer
    - Business start-up acceleration (and failure)
    - Brand authentication
    - A new way of banking for the masses

At $10k = 1 bitcoin today. I am going to sell ALL my 'XBT Provider AB Bitcoin Tracker' tomorrow and wait to see if the froth comes off. If Bitcoin (the bell-weather) retraces to $8k I might go back in.

In parallel, acknowledging Coinsilium (COIN) have probably been caught up in the Cryptocurrency fever, I am going to liberate all my capital and hold a free carry. I do this reluctantly as I think COIN is a blockchain and token play story for wider industry application. Not only do they have Terrastream their own Token platform; they have today, invested in buying 30% of Startup token see https://www.finextra.com/pressarticle/7 ... artuptoken
Again, I may top back up if there is an opportunity.

Percentage gains aside. COIN's market cap is just £12m-£13m. There has to be potential acquirers out there with £50m in loose change to buy them out. If not, once they are underway and assuming they don't print lots of shares, I see a £50m business anyway which translates to a 50p share (currently 12-13p).

Just my thoughts.. not a recommendation... you could lose the lot.

I see where you are coming from. Fair play - you took the risk and did handsomely well for yourself.

I wish you every success.

Planteria,

I don't hold bitcoin or any other cyrptocurrencies directly. I only hold a free carry on Coinsilium (COIN) a NEX listed share. https://www.coinsilium.com/
I also sold all my XBT Bitcoin tracker last week.

Regards.

Undoubtedly. Some people do very well as bubbles inflate. But that doesn't mean they're not bubbles.

And Bitcoin certainly is a bubble. It's value is entirely dependent on what people will pay for it: there is no underlying asset (as there is with any share or bond), there is no government or central bank underwriting the value (as exists with national currencies), there there is no income stream generated to pay a return - any return (as exists with real estate, shares in a business, etc).

Bitcoin is nearest in character to gold with the emotional appeal of a shiny metal replaced by the emotional appeal of the latest tech innovation.

..you'd have made more money if you'd hung on, but 'always leave something for the next man' i suppose.
