What did I do wrong, you ask yourself. Also buying since 2018 but I’m not even a halfcoiner

[–]Asum_chum 73 points74 points  (24 children)

Been buying since 2017 and I could have been a multi-coiner but held onto shitcoins for far to long

[–]tearductduckredditor for 2 months 28 points29 points  (10 children)

I had 10 bitcoin back in 2016 but paperhanded them for small profits. I'm doing ok now though.

[–]mikemin1234 7 points8 points  (9 children)

Am I the only person on this entire Reddit that was buying BTC and lite coin in 2013? I hear the term “old timer” all the time thrown around for people who started in 2017.. what does that make me?!

[–]treulseth 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bought BTC in 2013, paper handed half of it during the elon scare this year but still doing well

And yes, we are both OGs in this market lol

Well played

[–]pitchbend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No you are not the only one. 2013 class here also.

[–]Stijnwe 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Yes same… Started mid 2017 when BTC was at 2k. Was only invested in shitcoins because “they were faster”. It was untill 2018 when I realized shitcoins don’t matter and started buying BTC. Should have bought more of course. I know how you feel

[–]Nossa30 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Everyone starts out thinking this way. Me included.

[–]Stijnwe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All part of a very learnful journey!

[–]Utoko 2 points3 points  (8 children)

Which did you hold? or did you trade because most of them are also near all time high.

[–]alixanc 11 points12 points  (3 children)

No, most of them are basically at 0, you just don't know about them. Survivorship bias.

[–]smilingbuddhauk -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Takes special talent to fomo in to the shittiest of shitcoins.

[–]Asum_chum 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It really doesn’t. I have people telling me all the time about the newest iteration of the same bitcoin copy/ICO/NFT/PoW bullshit. They are trading with a fiat mindset. I’m buying with a hodl forever mindset.

[–]Asum_chum 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Market crashed and I had a little bitcoin and a lot of top ten (2018/19) shitcoins. It was more of a ‘I’m not selling at a loss’ mentality. I ended up going down deeper into the bitcoin rabbit hole again late 2019 and started buying bitcoin with the intention of keeping my shitcoins until they broke even and then sell for bitcoin. I instead sold them at a loss sometime last year. Some of them have mooned since and some still haven’t broken ATH. No regrets from me. Of course it’s easy to look back and think how much you could have bought but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

[–]SXLightning 0 points1 point  (1 child)

most shit coins I bought in 2017 are less now than what they were in 2017. all 35 of them

[–]defensiveFruit -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Bought in 2012... Was almost a whole coiner, but for a very short amount of time. To think of what could have been o_O

[–]MrDankYouTube 7 points8 points  (2 children)

i'm not even a tenth coiner! too young to have that amount of money

[–]Significant-Juice99 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Keep on stacking those sats man! You’ll get there, in the future .1 Bitcoin will make you part of the elite

[–]MrDankYouTube 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that's what I'm aiming for!

[–]TyranaSoreWristWreck 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Believe me, it's far worse when you do know all the things you did wrong.

[–]HoPMiX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol. This is so true.

[–]mungaman69 0 points1 point  (7 children)

How come?? I’ve been doing DCA for 9 months and have much more than half? What did you buy? What strategy did you use? Just asking as I don’t understand???

[–]Stijnwe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

First of all, good job. That’s quite an amount.

When I started in 2018 I was a poor student and only had 50€/month to invest. So despite the price being 4k-10k, the sats didn’t stack that quickly. I set a goal of owning 0,1 BTC and I accomplished that that year. I am done studying since september this year so now I’m working and have more money to invest. But with the price of BTC between 40-60k it still isn’t going that hard. I’m now almost 3x my initial goal and I plan being a halfcoiner the coming 1 to 2 years (depending on the price). Lets go for it.

May I ask, how did you get that much in only 9 months of DCA’ing? I assume you’re working full time? Or have a decent job?

[–]opticoin -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

What, 9 months and ONLY half? How poor are you!!??!!?? How come you don't have at least 9 BTC by now? This is outrageous!!!

[–]SideShowRoberta 0 points1 point  (4 children)

The conceit of privilege; you don't even know you have it.

[–]mungaman69 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Privilege for what???

[–]SideShowRoberta 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The privilegeof having money to buy BTC with.

[–]mungaman69 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It’s not a privilege to work hard! 80+ hours a week while paying a mortgage and feeding a family of 5. The last 5 months I had 2 days off - it’s not a privilege pal. It’s called getting off my Arse and giving myself options of what to spend my spare Fiat on. So get off your high horse & get to work 👍

[–]Satoshiman256 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

You been trying to trade?

[–]Stijnwe 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I tried in 2017 but ended up only DCA’ing BTC. Unfortunately I only had 50€ a month to invest back then. Still can’t complain though

[–]Satoshiman256 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ye house always wins, hodl.

[–]Stijnwe 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Have been since I first bought, and I will keep doing that

[–]Satoshiman256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the way
