What It's Like To Be Absolutely Obsessed With Bitcoin (HBO)

7729 ratings | 1071846 views
Over the past year, the price of a Bitcoin has skyrocketed from less than $800 to nearly $20,000 — a meteoric rise that financial insiders say is no different than the escalating cost of a tulip in seventeenth-century Amsterdam. Is it a bubble? Who cares! As VICE News' Jay Kang told us, “It’s impossible right now to not get rich if you own any Bitcoin.” Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Check out VICE News for more: http://vicenews.com Follow VICE News here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/vicenews Twitter: https://twitter.com/vicenews Tumblr: http://vicenews.tumblr.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicenews More videos from the VICE network: https://www.fb.com/vicevideo

That's pretty funny VICE, I'm pretty sure the banker's who own the corporations that own you are getting into the crypto market. Don't be fooled people, research the enterprise ethereum alliance. J.P. Morgan, multiple central banks all over the world, BP oil and Microsoft are in the crypto space. This is nothing but propaganda.

hey VICE Jay Kang is a dumbass because bitcoin is 15,000 or so for one... the correct statement would have been "if u owned 9 months ago it'd be impossible not to get rich" not saying it wont go higher but its clear in the fucking sky...so yeah, dont quote jay kang lol dumbasses read that shit and throw abunch of money in it and then whoops BTC has 30% retrace before it goes higher

Lol I'm not from America so even though I was very heavily invested into knowing what shit was going on each day early on, it came to a point where it was just not funny anymore but more annoying. Could blame that though, I think this is just the decade or maybe even century of "equality" extremists doing their thanggg
Rachul Marie-Anne (7 months ago)
Like this video is just highly uneducational, one-sided, and that would be okay IF it didn't also gives off misleading views on a topic that already has so much fud. That's the news for ya!

Alt coins to HODL in 2018: Omisego, Ontology, EOS, NEO, VeChain, Wanchain.
Dave Jones (2 months ago)
I've been become obsessed with crypto recently but it's hard not to, the believers will win and make a lot of money, HODL till end guys, do not let the doubt get to your head just keep doing what you're doing! BTC will be worth 30k by the end of 2018 in my opinion and in 2020 it'll be well over 200k, it cannot be stopped, governments and banks are the ones that should be scared! Not us!

Scan End (2 months ago)
The problem is with this guy he’s financially and technologically illiterate. If you don’t full understand crypto, markets, forex and trading to an already deep level. And you don’t know how to program your own bots. And you don’t have a private corporation and offshore tax shelters. Then basically you are just playing a slot machine and hoping for the best and if you get a win you have to know when to quit like any form of gambling and quit when you’re ahead. If you don’t know how do to technical analysis and mitigate your risk you brought this on yourself.

He doesn't seem like a bad guy. Just a guy with an obsessive/addictive personality.
MincraftFuccBoi72 (3 months ago)
If you have such a strong emotional reaction when the market dips, you have way too much money invested. You might want to scale down some of your positions. You should be trading only what you are comfortable with. And for gods sake, don't buy at an all time high!

Yup Bitcoin is only up from 800 dollars last January, to 8200 today....yeah it popped, its over. LMAO. Bitcoin is here to stay people, dont be fooled people. Buy now or regret it for your life, sure it might go to 7k or 6k....but January 2019 you will cry when the price is 30-40k. Just remember you laughed today and probarly lost the only chance you had to make some serious financial gain.

Buy a little Bitcoin every week and keep doing that month after month and year after year. It's worked well for me and many others. Don't stress yourself with trying to time the market and swing trade. Bitcoin rewards saving and patience.

Bitcoin, currency, stocks, whatever it is: if you are emotional in trading then you will (100% surely) be flushed down the toilet. Either psychologically or financially, but more then often it'll both......

How retarde you should be not to put your BTC in other crypto that is not falling during crash like any altcoins or even back it to USDT and then rebuy BTC on a dip and take the profits ,wtf ,why such people even get in to this and put their hard earned money when they don't have any strategy.

If bitcoin is a scam, then what is the US dollar ? The US dollar is as virtual as bitcoin. It has value because we all believe in the same delusion. Ask the people living in Venezuela if they prefer bitcoins or their national currency ...

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
