So there’s not a lot of market history for Bitcoin I mean we know that it’s only been around for about eight or nine years at this point all parking, but we wanted to take a look at just how much administer returns have been juiced. If you were in Bitcoin, so we look short-medium longer-term and there’s a chart of Bitcoin, at least on the Bitstamp prices, so we know that it. Yes, it was sub $ 100. At one point, it got all the way to near $ 20,000 at one point and now we’re back down to where we are at ten ten thousand five hundred. If you got in say three years ago, alright back then in mid-January of 2015, Bitcoin was around 250 bucks a token three years. So, even with the market moves that we’ve seen to the downside over the last couple of weeks, you still have a ten thousand dollar investment at that time worth four hundred and sixty thousand dollars ish. As of yesterday, it’s a little bit less today because of the price movement over the last year. You’Re still doing pretty good, it’s still worth about $ 125,000. But if you look at it just over a month from the highs to now that $ 10,000 has lost around 40 % of its value, so that 10,000 is now worth $ 6,000. So that gives you a little bit of a short-term, medium-term, longer-term time frame of $1,000. This is the return on ten thousand. Oh, that’s, four grand well ten thousand dollars invested initially is now worth. compared to four hundred fifty thousand. But it is, but still, I mean we’re in a mode in the stock market, where a 30 percent return is a good thing right right I mean that that’s what we know over the last year, you’re still up $ 12,200, that’s what it’s grown to and if You invested just at the high of Bitcoin over the last month.

  1. Coinbase & GDAX under investigation for FRAUD. Rumor is they will be shut down over night by FEDS. If you've got money in either place you may want to get it out while you still can.

  2. ehh whales pumped it to scare poor people out a year ago bit coin was 600 dollars compare btc on a 12 month period and you the media are engaging in perception management because central banks are threatened

  3. I would bet if I bought Bitcoin today I would make more money by the end of the month compared to stocks in 2 years. I've never seen anybody manipulate figures like this since,,,,,, oh yeah for ever, if your a broker!

  4. 2 things:
    1. Stocks are fraud, majority of the times the price is manipulated by their companies themselves.
    2. CNBC is Fake News, they are not for the interest of the American public but for the their friends, the corporations and banks.

  5. Crypto go up and down every month just some months there is a lower correction in the market but everytime after a dip Bitcoin come back with 60% gain .Strange the media love to criticize bitcoin on every dip

  6. I tell you some of these crypto heads that trade in this bitcoin rubbish don't know a fuckn thing about investing. I'm not saying that all people ,but the majority don't understand the risks involved . In my work place no one knew how to buy a stock on the stock market but all of a sudden in a months time 6 people think there professional traders in this stupid hype until the whole thing collapses in a heap .Even if some of these crypto heads make there millions in this market come 5 or 10 yrs later they won't have a cent under their name like some of these lotto winners , Easy come and easy go no lessons learned

  7. I am so relived but also took a huge risk when I told my dad to take out 100k and refinance the house to buy bitcoin when it was 5k. Only because I bought one bitcoin for 1k and in months, quadrupled my investment. We sold 20 bitcoins when the price hit 15k each and honestly thought we were going to owning jets,mansions and super cars. Now I wish we would have taken out a huge bank loan, maxed out credit cards and made family buy in.

  8. Funny, all these people say stocks is a joke or fraud, but these same people buy insurance, cars, and houses from companies, which these stocks represents, that offer the insurance service or build these cars and houses. Or better yet, these people who own bitcoin, because they work for companies that pay them salaries, and these same companies have stocks that are traded on the stock exchange.

  9. Is this serious. What a joke. Stocks have no comparison to crypto. Not even a year into Crypto and myself and a friend has retired from crypto and 2 other mates are on the way as well. If you want to look at a solid project for massive gains this year i recommend to look up Neo.

  10. If any Canadians are wondering what domestic exchange to use to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum & Litecoin, try this:

    QuadrigaCX is Canada's longest running cryptocurrency exchange and since it's inception, has never been hacked or compromised. They also have an active pressence on the subreddit /bitcoinCA should you need to get in contact with them.

    If you're looking for a slightly easier and cheaper way to buy Bitcoin, you can also try nTrust , they just recently came onto the market and so far they've been way better than most other Canadian exchanges in my opinion, both in terms of overall price and fees, plus they have great customer service that got back to me within 24 hours of e-mailing them a question. They have a variety of funding options, including being listed as a "Payee" if you're with a Credit Union.

    You can use my ref code where you and I both get $2 for signing up, so it's a win-win.
    My ref code is: ale532

    FEE INFO:

    Bitcoin

    CAD Funding

    Their spread might be higher than normal, but they cover the cost of transactions if you send your BTC to another address. In terms of convenience and free funding options, I can't settle for anything else if I need to get my CAD into crypto as fast as possible to ride those crypto bull waves.

    If you decide to use my referral code and/or address, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to do so!
