The last investors are ones who get screwed and Bitcoin is no exception. 

In fact, I am gradually getting out of the stock market.  A collapse is overdue...  Better to get out NEAR the top than after a crash.  Greedy people get burned every time.

Don't see what you meant...

FYI, I just looked at my cryptocurrency wallet. Between my litecoin and EOS, my money has more than quadrupled.

you will say I'm the fool, but you can call me whatever you want, you peasants.

It isn't a currency. It's an asset, at best.

When you become king, more wealthy than Bill Gates, please F* him in the ass for me.  And make him thank you.

If your corner the market on rare Beanie-babies ... you are too late.  That craze ended already.

Taking out insurance on other people's lives is an asset .. but only if they die.  A tulip mania is death.  That is why we speak English instead of Dutch ... the Dutch blew their chance.

Well, it is a currency. I've bought items with it.

Well ... it is projected to be $100,000 per BitCoin soon.  If it goes to $trillion, you won't have anyone to buy from, because the US isn't civilized, like Biafra and Rwanda ;-(

You can buy it in fractions. This comment alone of yours illustrates your lack of knowledge of the subject.

yes
I put $100 in on litecoin, about a month ago, when it was 45 per coin, it shot up to a little over 200 and then I traded 1 coin worth in to EOS, another coin that is relatively new, but based on very reliable software and shows good promise for $3.50 a coin each, so now i have 37 and change in EOS. EOS has since went to $5.38 and Litecoin has jumped to $321.

I made my $100 in to $520 since about 2 months ago. Basically by doing nothing.

Basically, what all these different coins are.... its a format war. Like how different media battles it out to see what the public decides on. Eventually we decided on VHS. Eventually, for the next generation, we decided on DVD... and so on. This is the same. It's a new format of currency.  Until recently, I was buying Steam games with my bitcoin. I traded some of my litecoin in to bitcoin and then used that to buy a steam game. I would have rather used Litecoin, but that is just me. My wallet, Exodus Wallet has a currency swap feature that lets you change the type of currency, so that makes it easy.

So yes. It's a legitimate currency. And yes, you can still get in to it and make money by investing in the correct one. Not bitcoin, because that time is past, but my advice is look at the newer ones. EOS is still pocket change to get in to, so that would be a safe bet, possibly. Litecoin is still a decent bet too, possibly. There are better people than me to talk to about this, but I can confirm that you can do it.
