I think every original BTC miner/trader has regret. I mined 1 BTC every 36-48 hrs back in the day. It plummeted to like $3 or worse (don't remember) and I bailed, sold all my Radeon's, sold #2 and #3 PC. Everyone has almost the same story though. I should of invested in Netflix when it opened at $11 a share. Shoulda Coulda Woulda.

I got 50 LTC that I mined..

Planning on holding for the next few years.. it seems a lot more promising now than it did a few months ago.. so it's definitely a hold game
post #8674 of 22325

In my few weeks, I've had selling 600K EAC at 400 satoshi and watching price rocket to nearly 1000 (800 stable), then missed the initial RPC pump and held 2/3 of my coin, after which value has fallen by over half...

 

I know someone who was gifted 10 BTC a year ago and threw them in the bin thinking they were worthless :rolleyes: though the worst story I've heard is someone who lost 7000BTC while trying to encrypt/secure their wallet.

Yep. No point in dwelling in the past. Just learn from the mistakes made and move forward with a vengeance!

I *tried* to get into BTC mining when it first came out, but I couldn't sort out the bloody instructions at all. Probably wouldn't have made much, with a G6950 and a GT220. rolleyes.gif
I find it kinda humorous now that I mine with a Radeon 6950 on a system with a G6950 processor.

That's why you sell half now to cover costs and extras and do a little holding!

SmartMetric to Launch World's First Bitcoin Card With Biometric Fingerprint Protection
Scheduled for Launch in Q1 2014
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 10, 2014) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME), a developer of patented biometric products, announced today it has developed and will soon launch the SmartMetric Biometric Bitcoin Card, the world's first biometric, fingerprint secured, off-line storage platform for bitcoins.
"SmartMetric's bitcoin card can significantly accelerate the growth and rate of adoption for bitcoins as the new global currency. By applying our patented biometric technologies to a bitcoin payment card, we offer the world's first fingerprint-secured method to safely store and use bitcoins," stated SmartMetric President and CEO Chaya Hendrick.
The SmartMetric Biometric Bitcoin Card uses the Company's patented biometric fingerprint technology, the world's smallest fingerprint reader. The card offers the benefits of bitcoins such as peer-to-peer transactions and card-to-card direct bitcoin sending anywhere in the world, while enabling real-time, in-person standard payment transactions at merchants and compatibility with standard ATMs around the world. Advanced patented fingerprint technology uses the cardholder's unique biometrics to lock and unlock the SmartMetric Biometric Bitcoin Card, providing safety and discrete portability.
Bitcoins are becoming more widely used around the world, driven by government non-intervention and merchant and consumer demand. In the U.S., Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently sent a letter to the Senate noting that bitcoin may "hold long-term promise... if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system." Japan, Germany, and Singapore have also recently taken an open stance on bitcoin, choosing to keep the digital currency unregulated for the time being.
According to www.blockchain.info there are an estimated 12 million bitcoins in circulation today. With Bitcoins trading at approximately $925 per bitcoin on January 6, 2013, there is an estimated $11 billion worth of bitcoins in circulation.
About SmartMetric
SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) develops patented biometric technologies used for security and identification, including the world's smallest fingerprint reader. The Company's proprietary advanced miniature electronics technology uses sub-micro computers to create fingerprint and security applications that were not previously possible. The world's smallest fingerprint reader is designed to fit inside standard payments cards as well as ID cards. Because of the miniature size of the electronics it is ideal for use in a broad array of products requiring an enhanced identification system. SmartMetric's products include biometric credit card and biometric debit card technologies, a medical emergency biometric card, and a MedicalKeyring(TM). For information on SmartMetric and its technology please go to www.smartmetric.com.
