I have literally been holding these coins for 10 years 10 fvvvking years. Do you know the emotional toll it puts on a person to hold through three bear markets!? DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE COST???????
For new bitcoiners & pre-coiners:
Don't feel bad for not understanding bitcoin immediately, it takes a long time.
You're not late. Everyone including myself felt late. It is still e-a-r-l-y.
HINDSIGHT IS 20/20. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. Seize the day and it's time to go all in. This asset is now de-risked and a 10000000 times better buy now than back in 2011 from a risk adjusted perspective.
I've watched this god damn internet project grow from literally being mocked 24/7 including by holders and now it's being adopted as a treasury reserve asset by Publicly listed companies. It has already won. The risk is gone.
Buy bitcoin now and front-run every public and privately listed corporation, and every nation states that wants to stay relevant in the 21st century too.
The educational material is awesome nowadays. I have been studying bitcoin 5+ hours a day for the past 2.5 years and every week I learn something new about bitcoin and how money works and realise how ignorant I was before.
First buy Bitcoin. Second invest in yourself through education. Investing in educating yourself will quell any anxiety around holding such a large % of capital in Bitcoin.
HODL does not stand for "hold on for dear life". That's dumb.
HODL is from a drunk misspelling from a post on the bitcoin talk forum about the price crashing and a dude's girlfriend out a lesbian bar.
Open to answering questions.
