Like everybody else, I’ve been watching the price of Bitcoin skyrocket. If I would have bought $1000 in Bitcoin back when I first heard about it, it would be worth over 100 million dollars now. Talk about kicking myself. I started buying Bitcoin this spring, and have close to $1000 now. I’m sure it will be worth nothing soon, but who knows. I don’t want to miss out on millions if it keeps going up.
I don’t think Bitcoin is a great investment. The bubble will pop, it’s just a matter of when and how big it will get. I’m just playing around with it with money I can afford to lose. I’m putting way more into my Roth IRA, which is doing alright, but should be better long term. It just kills me knowing how much Bitcoin I would have if I put my Roth money into Bitcoin instead.
It’s so easy to look back at the what if’s. It’s hard to do the smart thing that will payout in the long run.
Also, I’m playing around with the new version of MarsEdit. Let’s see if it gets me blogging more like I always want to do.
