    Chamath is telling these folks that, YES INVEST IN BITCOIN at 15k, it will be at 100k or worth $1 million in the future. BTC ($47,917) as of Feb 26, 2021

    Aloooha, 1st time experiencing the squawk box. & for me, it was like drinking a cocktail filled w/an incredible amount of emotional ingredients while taking off on a blind vertical pipeline reef exposing free fall drop. I found the speed of the conversational exchanges to be well timed & the topics agreeable yet unacceptable yet somehow alluring. I found the financial terms to be confusing, yet understandable & the inside information utterly fascinating. I found that the shows content was agreeable, respectful, knowledgeable, funny, disagreeable, intriguing, confusing & understandable. What a ride🤙

    In 2017, Bitcoin had an incredible year, with a bull run that rewarded investors with a 1,350 percent return and an all-time high of $20,000 as an early Christmas present. In 2018, however, the picture was very different. Bitcoin lost over 70 percent of its value, dropping from $14,000 on January 1st to below $4,000 to close the year. The bear market would last throughout 2018 and 2019, and many sector related companies did not survive the extended crypto winter.

      At the start of 2020, Bitcoin investors began the year in a bullish mood. The bear market was over and Bitcoiners were looking to Bitcoin’s third halving in May to provide the catalyst for a new bull run. However, the COVID-19 pandemic was a black swan event that poured cold water on bull market hopes. In March, the Bitcoin price flash-crashed down to just under US$4000, a drop of more than 50% as investors in all markets went to cash as the reality of the pandemic set in.

      @Joseph Yi Regarding "your pyramid" I think you are being very short sighted. I don't have to participate to see what is happening and will happen. Elon Musk interplanetary proposition is giving you a hint of what's coming. I am not going to be part of it cause I am at the end of my life already but, the way current events are projecting humans will have to overcome their own collective stupidity sooner or later. AI is not an idea: AI is learning. Just keep that in mind. When Eric Schmidt ex-google ceo spends $20M in a D-Wave Quantum Computer to figure out human trends it's time to pay attention. So if you are going to wait for the look in my face I suggest you buy a good mirror... maybe a convex one so you can capture the details. Cause it's gonna be a long time coming.

      @Joseph Yi I bought and sold Tesla stock when it was convenient. I don't have to do anything else for the rest of my life. Rich is not the one that has a lot but the one that has everything they need. Regarding Bitcoin I despise their proposition. When I bought Tesla back then there were several reasons. One of them was Elon Musk's attitude of "taking no prisoners" against corporations, "big oil" and all the other conventional dinosaurs. Bitcoin, on the other hand, IS the establishment. You talk Bitcoin I barter. You and me are different worlds. Last, I have no problem you getting into that boat, I am not the type that is herded into anything. I don't subscribe to anything I don't like or do business that don't make me smile. BTW take GameTop for example, it was a nice joke to make the short sellers cry for their lives. I enjoy every minute of it. Kudos to those who did that. Just like I did when I had Tesla for 5 years or so when those very same short sellers came after me. So beware the sword is double edge and some people have the power to swing it both ways.

It's a speculative asset that surprise! also bought 1.5 billion dollars of bitcoin, a speculative asset. But what people don't realize are Both have revolutionary technologies, Elon isn't dumb. I suggest you study more about bitcoin. But doesn't matter, with or without you Tesla, bitcoin and block chain will be the future

    have been a believer in the blockchain and the bitcoin over the years and from experience, I have learned that information about bitcoin comes from three kinds of people, One who knows but would rather suppress the information by publicly criticising bitcoin but privately stacking up on the asset, there is also the truly ignorant who would swallow any information hook, line and sinker and of course, those that are truly devout to bitcoin and making steady progress in updating with information worth knowing. I have been in the last 2 group but with the assistance of Koen Albers whose trades I have been copying for over 3 months now, netting in more than 9 btc in profit already. Learning never ends and I am still doing so with Koen. He can be reached on whatsAap (+44 7828 450768) and telrgram (+447828 450768) .
