Default Anyone else buying Litecoin?

I'm thinking of getting in it versus Bitcoin...Anyone else? Or am I too late to the game once again...

I bought when it was 85 and put in 400 bucks. I wish I would have sold when it when to 475 per coin or so but it will bounce back. Or it won't. Just did it for fun.

I have some, bought at $67,

It's been hovering at $300 and I'm seriously considering making a considerable buy at that price. been going back and forth on it.

I use coinbase.



EDIT: just took a look and Crypto has taken a dive the last 24 hours across the board, LTC at $250, I guess sitting on the sidelines was a good choice, I think I'll wait some more.

There are numerous cryptos...lots of speculative money to be made or lost.
If you liked penny stocks, you will really really like the ICO market for Initial Coin Offerings.

You will have to use a more robust trade platform than Coinbase...but the market is "real".

Here's a link for those interested in pursuing it.

I had a limit hit for a couple @ $300. Last night in the big correction I had a limit @ 275. I quick jumped on, revised it to $200 but then got spooked. I should have left it. I literally would have found the bottom for the current period @ $200.

Today it's hovering around $225 at the moment. May put in a sweetheart trade for a limit to buy @ $185 and see if it hits.

EDIT: Sweetheart trade of limit to buy @ $175 is in. Let's see if it hits.

I wouldn't describe it that way...until a day or two ago coinbase didn't offer Bitcoin Cash...


Go look at tthe gdax site...and read a couple articles to get some background...

Yep...Christmas sell off of the 6900 percent increases in the past month...

The way to look at these is like a slow motion slot machine that you can lower your bet before the wheels stop turning.

It is a pure speculation. Not really for the faint of heart.

Last night separated the men from the boys in cryptos. That's for sure. LOTS of people panic sold. Some people made a quick 30%.

I'm fundamentally in on LTC. I believe there will be some big news in 2018. I could be wrong? Who knows?

I am currently exploring a penny stock strategy for the other alt-coins. Spoke to a friend yesterday that turned $2000 into $20,000 in 6 months.

All the markets are tanking right now.. Maybe a good time to buy if you can guess the bottom.

It's never too late until you're still in when the bubble bursts. It's referred to as the bigger idiot chain; as long as you're not the last one in line you will do well.

there are some attractive penny ones out there. I'm curious to see how today plays out with everyone racing for the bottom. Would like to see Ripple get back down below 1$, for example.

edit -- shit, nevermind. It's already 91 cents since an hour ago. Makes me happy that Kraken and Bitstamp still haven't been able to verify me or else I'd be riding this down too.
