    Let see what happens. If BTC doesn’t hit to $25000 this month then it will never be a million dollar asset.

    • Jordan Dean

      do you know what bitcoin is worth as a whole even if it were to go down to 2,500? Still a million dollar asset. If youre referring to 1btc/1mil USD I dont think anyone expects that to happen

      • Johnny Bravo

        It serves no utility. That’s the rub – it is all speculation.

        • Jordan Dean

          no utility except tons of places except it as a payment, by your logic Stocks are a rube as well by that logic, its all speculation

      • I do! BTC will go to $25k this month and will one day get to $1M.

        • Jordan Dean

          a 4x increase in a month? we arent even at the low yet

  • ReliveBiz

    Hopefully soon we will be able to hit $25000


      Will not hit 10-15k$ till the transaction volume is solved.
      Till then I’m using my own mining SW to mine Monero.
      Profitable today, with future BTC spike, it will make me fortune.

    • Johnny Bravo

      Shit in one hand, wish in the other. See which one fills up first.

  • Jon Blowhard

    It’s going to 2500 or less, priced for what it is, gaining Less acceptance as a currency…maybe it will be worth around what an oz of Gold is worth even…if it’s lucky…..can anyone say transaction times/high fees?

  • Andrew

    all wallets should have dollars to exchange for all other currencies. If the btc falls, no one else’s fault. If we had dollars in all the wallets, other currencies would have not fallen.

  • y

    Time to buy!

  • Johnny Bravo

    I see dead people. Everywhere in the crypto space. lol

  • omgwtfbbqhax1

    blame the institutional investors (aka bastardspawns of AIDSridden whores) in chicago futures market WHO JUST WONT STOP SHORTING.

    explains why this sort of tanking always fucking starts on mondays. Institutions are butthurt that they couldn’t buy bitcoin when they were below $1000, so those jews are trying to fuck over retail investors by manipulating the price downwards.
