Is the dip over yet? Today we are showing strong gains and btc is finally over 9k.

Perhaps we are bullish again at March.

Today is the day I'm back in green again. At the worst dip @ $5800 btc I was down 20%.

Today I'm finally up 8%

Same here - that went over my head by about 30,000 feet. Woosh.

An observation I've recently made - about 2 or 3 years ago when Stellar first launched, the ratio of XLM to XRP was about 4 to one. That has narrowed significantly lately and the ration is now about 40%. So .4XRP = 1XLM. That's quite a change and I think indicates the relative strength of XLM.

I feel special that it ONLY took a second viewing of browsing this forum at... last night and this AM.

And I decided to admit I was dumb on the forum.

Thanks to my sacrifice, now you all get the joke.

Huh. Bitcoin is at only 9k and I'm already in black. That should tell you how comfortable I am. I was up 300% just 3 weeks ago.

...you were up 300% 3 weeks ago. Meaning you are actually down 292% over three weeks. That's uh....great, I guess?

What I mean is, past gains prove that gains are to be had in greater numbers than stocks - which is what you brought up.

I am so glad I wasn't the only one struggling with that one! lol
If I were paying attention to this thread at that time, I would have gotten it instantly...but only because I have been binging old and new Top Gear seasons for a few weeks now, for some reason.

Yes definitely nice to see. Rebrand event is in 11 days, so I expect a temporary drop after the 26th regardless of what BTC does. Tempted to sell and buy back in but I am no trader, I'm a lazy hodler happy to see slow, progressive gains.

When did you get in?

The average price of my VET purchases is $4.20. Anything above, it's money bottom line.

Average for me is $4.25, but about 1/3 of my investment into VET was from nice Bitcoin gains from a while back.

Looking forward to the AMA.

It's funny that while I informed you of VEN some time after I got VEN, our average prices are the same.

That means I was mad bullish to buy more at even way later/higher prices.

I sold at my original investments worth at $17k put that money back in my bank acct, sold the rest at $14k, bought back in at $9k. Gonna ride it up again. Not a lot of money's worth but it's more fun than trading stocks, lol.
