    I had my nephew call me, asking how he can into Bitcoin "big time". He's always completely skint, but told me he secured a big personal loan for this, and isn't worried because he will double his money in a matter of weeks or months. This is a guy that can barely afford to eat.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Tell him to cash out his initial investment when (if) it doubles then play with the house's money

    If he lost £50 he'd probably be declared bankrupt. He's a single father living in a council house with two very young kids. Him and his mates are dreaming of being crypto-millionaires, but they haven't got a penny to spare.

    There is a lot of 'dumb retail money' pouring into this space

    It's like the lottery, attracting all the dreamers that are unhappy with life and the shortcomings of our government to improve it.

    Sadly unless they are very lucky at getting out before the crash, they'll just end up in a much worse position. At least with the lottery they're only risking a few quid a week.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    And you'll feel a lot better at missing out on the train that still hasn't left the station

    How is having 48 bitcoins a worse position?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
