Subject:Why am I Not Surprised?
Time:12:07 am
According to tonight's Evening Standard the value of BitCoin has plummeted 80% in the last year. Cue cries of "Told you so!" from all and sundry, and huge relief from me that I stayed well out of it...

It's been funny dropping into the reddit for bitcoin over the last 6 months. Pretty much every week as it reaches a new low, there's people going 'Okay, I'm buying now, this is as low as the market can go, I'm buying $10k worth now!'

Yeah, I can believe that. Apparently it's holding up BETTER than the other cryptocurrencies which have tanked harder and faster!

I cant see it climbing again either. Too many people shovelled money into it and lost it all. The general public isn't gonna do that again I don't think.

I find your lack of faith in human gullibility disturbing... Give it a few years and a sufficiently ingenious promoter and the fiasco will rise again!

You make a fair point, yes.
