    Default Bitcoin

    Anyone own bitcoin? its up nearly $8000 in last 2 weeks lol

    anyway if ya didnt know you dont have to mine it only to own it there are numerous ways to own it now.

    one way i found was thru gbtc - bitcoin investment trust you can own it and short it anyway it trades at a premium to bitcoin and because bitcoin has gone up so much , it really is only for real risk takers huge swings everyday.

    soon you can trade it by futures when the contract launches.

    probably other ways to own it anyone know other ways?

    If you think share trading is stressful, crytocurriency trading is on a whole new level! Lots of sleepless nights with your holding swinging in value up and down as these markets operate 24hrs! You can make a lot of money but so can you lose a lot if you pick the wrong direction.

    Thats interesting. Have not looked there for a bit. Have an account with them so might just dust off the cover as it were. THanks.

    I'm staying away from all crypto's. Reckon its nuts. Read somewhere there are now over 1000 different crypto currencies. Starting to sound like a flooded market place. A electrician I know is trading 100k at any one time and she dosnt even know what a moving average is.

    Good luck to all who are in too win.

    When everyone including the naieve start piling into anything because it's going to be better than sliced bread, stay away.

    yes some people will lose bad thats for sure , anyway what really caught my attention was when the chinese started really clamping down on capital leaving the country then i noticed bitcoin starting to move more strongly as bitcoin is anonomous it made sense to me the chinese would move big into this to get money out of the country anyway that was my theory at the end of day who cares as long as its in your favour lol

    And just so posters are aware - there are already loads of Crypt threads in Sharetrader forums - nearly as many as there are cryptocurrencies
