    it doesnt really makes sense what this fella is saying , if a person wants to sell bitcoins in one go , he can … easily man .. there is no mechanism which forbides that , its only the limit of bitcoins and the exponentiallity to mine new ones

    Omg and the idiots disliked this video more than the people who liked it. So many people are gonna lose their clothes when this bubble bursts like how inevitably all of them in the past/history have done. Speculation at its finest.

    One more problem is that Bcash is centralized. It was created and marketed by Roger Ver, the truth is that if Roger Ver dies, Bcash will go to nearly zero.

    If Vitalik dies, Ethereum will tank as well. Same for a lot of these teams. On the other hand, if a BITCOIN developer dies, BITCOIN continues all the same unscathed. BITCOIN is the most decentralized coin in that sense. And so I say GO….BITCOIN….GO . The king of crypto .

    The only ones that hate BITCOIN ( call it a bubble ) are the ones that don't own any , FACT it's not too late to get onboard even if you only own a tiny fraction of a coin . JOIN THE RESISTANCE JOIN BITCOIN .

    there are lot of country already talking about banning bitcoin. Governments like currency which they can regulate and control. Higher and more popular bit coin grows, more is chances for it to get banned.

    If you buy and hold BITCOIN for the next 4 to 5 years there will be such a wide adoption of the currency worldwide that you won't have to take it out and swap it for dollars or any other currency for the matter.

    But if you're in it to make a quick buck, in my opinion, your wasting your time because as you still have to report any gains to the tax man. Key BUY and HOLD by that time 1 Million US or more per coin is not a unreasonable number.

    Bitcoins only value is that at the moment there’s someone willing to pay more for it, once that confidence wanes, the price will plummet, taking all other alt coins with it, except a few… the technology supporting these coins is what’s valuable not the coins themselves… same with the dot com bubble, it was the internet that was valuable not all the dot coms that popped up around it, sure money was made in the beginning of dot com but by the end a lot of money was lost, same thing here, the people making money are the ones who bought for pennies on the dollar… when everyone’s digging for gold…sell shovels

    Doesn't lose value drastically? Well, Mr Genius, check out the price fluctuations at the end of December 2017.

    BTC is most definitely capable of crashing, and parabolas eventually invert. Don't get left holding the bag.

    Comparing bitcoin with the tulip bubble is not that imaginative of an analogy, in fact, bitcoin is much more sophisticated than a tulip bubble – much more sophisticated than just this! Just don't take my word for it check out 'aantonop' here on YouTube – he surely is a true master in cryptocurrencies and what goes on behind it all!

    I don't usually do this but I tried every way I can to earn. I will do anything. I need 0.8BTC just to make even on all my bills debt. I really need your immediate help, there's nothing left in my salary and we barely don't have any food left. We are dealing with a huge hospital bill and it will be due soon. I would appreciate any help. If you can give me any favor, here is my bitcoin address (1HcAUWJDyDRnW4q8JZRGTtEACVcjSPRy7B). I hope you have all the blessing-MERRY CHRISTMAS

    Largest bubble in history ignoring: student loans, sub prime auto and house loans, Manhattan housing bubble, etc, etc, etc. Guess it's just cool if the banks do it and us plebs get ass raped with the "sharing economy".

    As long as people don't understand the Bitcoin System the spread fear will always cause dumps. Tulip and Bitcoin lol. Even compared to 2009 or the dot.com bubble there are many differences to to Bitcoin.. But the most important difference to understand is the following:

    The very definition of a bubble in the sense of bankers and "experts" is that a price rises without an appropriate countervalue. This happened with the tulip mania (flowers!), dot.com bubble (fomo in companies without any working products) and the housing bubble (granted credits without an countervalue -> to keep it simple). So whats about Bitcoin. Well, Bitcoin has an countervalue and this value rises steadily. Its the cost to mine one. Every generated Bitcoin costs a significant amount of fiat money which represents its countervalue. – By the way to wipe out the argument "Bitcoin, as a digital currency is, is nothing worth is utter bullshit". A number printed on paper is worth nothing if you see it like that. – 

    Bitcoin is here to stay. Its worth something. The Market cap is very high because of demand, yes. This demand is mostly caused by fomo at the moment, yes. But Bitcoin has a significant countervalue and is built on a system which manages itself and is not controlled by a corporation with greedy managers who make money on the back of others. The market decides whats going on.
