Creditiltä hyvä postaus. Noin 10 sek googlettamisella löytyi esimerkin vuoksi seuraava lista, eli bitcoin oli ensin se ainoa oikea "crypto currency", sitten se oli yksi muutamista. Sitten yksi kymmenistä ja nyt no yksi sadasta vaihtoehdosta. Ja niin edelleen, eli Bitcoinilla on jo nyt kilpailijoita jotka todennäköisesti ovat fiksumpia sijoituskohteita. Joka tapauksessa sijoitusmielessä lamppan kannattaa ennemmin ostaa sokeripaketteja ja säilykeruokaa sinne maakellariin, niin tulevaisuus olisi paremmin turvattu. Kun tässä nyt itse kukin vain odottelee Venäjän tankkeja vyörymään Kiovan kaduille
Tuossa bitcoinissa on se sama perusongelma kuin tässä FIAT-paskapaperissakin jota koko maailma käyttää tällä hetkellä vaihdon välineenä. Sillä kolikolla tai setelillä ei itsessään ole mitään arvoa kun sitä ei ole sidottu kultaan. Jos joku hautaa nyt purkin maahan jossa bitcoinin muistitikulla ja vieressä 20€ seteli niin parin muutaman kymmenen vuoden päästä molemmat ovat yhtä arvokkaita kuin yksi arkki vessapaperia.
Yleisellä tasolla kyllähän tuollaisissa voi spekuloida ja big risk ... big gain, tai sitten big loss. Mutta silloin täytyy olla mukana ajoissa eikä hypätä kelkkaan silloin kun kupla on puhkeamaisillaan (tai puhjennut jo). Onnea niille jotka lähtivät mukaan kun Bitcoin perustettiin ja haistoivat että tähän kannattaa sijoittaa - eiköhän näistä moni ole jo ns "cashed in" spekuloinnillaan ja tehnyt hyvän tilin. Mutta nyt mukaan hyppää varmaan enää lähinnä häviäjiä.
