If you didn't buy bitcoin at $10....

...you've already missed the boat. Likewise with silver, if you didn't buy under $20 you missed that boat too...unless you were smart enough to unload when it hit $49. Bitcoin has almost tripled in the last month or so. Does that sound like a stable investment? I call it mass hysteria. I recall a couple of years ago when bitcoin got smashed from $40 to $10 in less than 24 hours. Do what you want brother, but beware. Yeah, PM's have been hit hard, manipulated, etc. Hate to sound like a parrot, but tangible silver and gold will never be worthless. Bitcoin? It was created out of nothing and can easily return to being worth nothing. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the current anonymity of bitcoin, especially if I want to shop on the silkroad, but at the end of the day it's just as fiat as the Federal Reserve Note. There's pretty much an infinite supply of cotton fiber paper, and bytes. PM's don't make you rich, they make you secure. Use bitcoin when you want to make a purchase anonymously, but don't add it to your IRA portfolio. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
