Any taxi drivers recommending it yet?

I understand that's traditionally one way to call the top of a bubble! :lol:

Hi All

I started looking at it in the summer and put £250 into bitcoin to see how it went ....then started buying on dips
Currently position is this in coinbase :
Bitcoin 1.3604 BTC val £19,517.47 on £6800 invested
Litecoin 23.6106 LTC val £5,755.09 on £1358 invested
Ethereum 5.3076 ETH val £2,935.34 on £1589 invested

Coinbase -Tots- £9730 invested ...which today stands at £28,174


Etoro
Also had a few small trades in etoro $1k on $3500 out
Now reinvested $500 each across 7 cryptos which in less than a week gives tot holding at $4760 ($1260 profit)

Shares

Just cashed in 9k from a poorly performing SIPP fund to put in this one above

If anyone fancies a bit of it , coinbase seems to be the most popular place to buy bitcoin this link will get you a $10 bonus when you open an account

My first buy was when bitcoin was $2700 ....hindsight is a wonderful thing , just wish i had moved a bit quicker !
It is becoming more mainstream on a daily basis, so has room to grow, if the optimists are to be believed then upto 1m per coin within a few years is a bit fanciful ...... but it would not surprise me to see it at 50-100K before the end of 2018 , litecoin, ethereum, ripple and eoin are all being suggested to show greater gains than bitcoin in the next 12 mths. Welcome to the future !!!!
