Don’t.

  • hurrdurr

    Looks like OP is jelly that he didn’t get in early. I did, and now I have enough money to pay off my student loans~

      You are correct. I am very “jelly”. Do your buttcoins work at buttcollege? Will they also accept payment in WOW Gold?

      • D.O.A.

        lol he has no comeback for facts. Digital toilet paper.

        Hahaha, if only, right? Bitcoins are indeed a volatile “currency”, but thanks to Mt. Gox, people can exchange that “currency” for real currency, and vice-versa. It’s kind of like laundering your money from the internet. Whether or not it is a silly notion, it’s a little difficult to look at the numbers and not be deeply interested. It’s still very early in the game, and only half of all the Bitcoins have been mined, so what will happen to the value is something left to be seen. Your picture of Bitcoins flying out of that butt is quite funny, but unfortunately cultivating Bitcoins at this stage is a lot harder than even the most strenuous of shits, and we can thank the engineers for that. Since half of the Bitcoins have been mined, the transaction algorithms have become multitudes more intense, and the reward has been halved. When it first started out, it was so easy, an Android phone could poop 3 out every day. Imagine being that one person who stumbled on the concept, found it interesting, and made a few hundred, not really knowing anything of this magnitude would happen. Today, even a supercomputer will be able to mine about as many Bitcoins as a high end gaming PC could 3 years ago. It’s frustrating for people like you and me, people who bust their butts to make our money, to see something so fundamentally simple gain so much value in so little time. If I only knew then what I know now, I would have bought hundreds of BTCs and waited for a bubble like this to sell them off. This bubble will burst, and I can’t wait for it to happen, but it will grow again, and I’ll be there scraping as many as I can while the faith is low. I have no ties to any Bitcoins, save the .0003 that I got from a faucet, so this is coming from an entirely neutral perspective. All I can say is to be less downtrodden on a concept that hopes to bring an anlternative to banking with the corporate world.

        • APC

    • shinratdr

      Hope you got out by now, or you’re going to end up with some of the worst student loan debt ever.

    I bought 1000 when they were 10p each and sold 750 when they reached 25 for the first time. I’m now slowly releasing the rest, probably keeping 10 long term.

    But keep telling me how you’re not jealous.

    • Fluxity

      Well, I have an enormous penis so at least I got that going for me.

      • George

        I think you have macropsia.

    • APC

      Yah, its liek Ima millonaire and I sez to world jaw rich Iam. Derp.

  • Derpington_The_Third

    I’ve gotten out and am hanging on with a few coins. I’m one of the lucky ones that made about $20k, which I have absolutely no problem paying taxes on, because it was essentially free money.

  • Daniel Ryan

    Thanks. I hear Zimbabwe has a good currency to invest in instead.

    But seriously if you going to invest, only invest what you can lose. I’ve been lucky that I been making a little sum.

  • Jorge

    Do you have a bitcoin address to donate you for your work?

  • ButtCoinMinor

    I’m so glad I didn’t buy any stupid Bitcoins back in 2011 when I saw this.

    • Trooper

      Why? You’re averse to becoming about 850% richer?

      o.O
      That’s very strange.

  • some dork

    Wonder how many nerdy millionaires are out there now… They’re currently worth about 850$…

    • bitchcoin

      only retards accept bitcoin payments

      • Common sense

        Correction: Only retards like you don’t.

        • ang

          because it totally makes sense to accept imaginary money in payment for real goods and services

          • Sam

            You’re already using ‘imaginary money’ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_money

          • matt

            “Imaginary money” backed by a major national government’s backing and accepting them as payment of taxes, as opposed to “imaginary money” backed only by wishful thinking and libertarian daydreaming.

  • Strange site

    Why such condescending tone on this site? Bitcon is just a tiny piece of software holding some computermoney that some people enjoy playing with? Spend your time on earth creating something creative and innovative yourself instead.

    • Strange site

      HEHE BitCON 😛 Not a good typo to make when defending the currency 😛

      • Jonas Namensen

        Nevermind the Haters strange site. i totally agree

    • Robert Kupper

      Mostly because Bitcoin attracts people with silly ideologies and lots and lots and lots of hilarious scams. Also they take it SUPER SERIOUSLY so its fun to poke them.

  • HLTGRP

    Funny what lengths people will go to, to satiate their incredible jealousy levels. Cute website. Sorry you missed the gold rush, and subsequent payoff. I just cashed out $80,000 and bought myself a 2014 Range Rover Sport. Hows your investment portfolio looking? Kisses…

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/KizoneKaprow Kizone Kaprow

      Oh yeah? Well I just cashed out and bought a small country in the Pacific and a 200-foot yacht to get there! And with the money left over I built an infinity pool and filled it with Cristal Champagne! For my harem to swim in. Naked!

      • Bobus

        i cashed out my runescape gp and have my own skull shaped island hows your investment portfolio looking? kisses… my ass bitch

    • ang

      It’s not like there’s a years-long waiting list to actually withdraw real money from any of the existing bitcoin exchanges or anything

    • Cap’n Slappy

      You blew 80k on a hugely depreciating gas-guzzler asset and you fancy yourself an investor? Don’t quit your day job.

    • Guest

      A 2014 Range Rover SPORT hhahaha u fucking poser!

    • matt

      I made more than that last year working at a real job.

    • APC

    “Why do people value money… it’s just a piece of paper or metal or plastic or whatever that goes into your pocket.” “banks can just print more money and devalue what you own”

    (about dirty fiat money) “at the end of the day it doesn’t make this currency a good means of storing wealth as over time the value declines”
    Using money is bad, that’s why buttcoins are the future.

  • Tony

    I made 6800% profit in 2013. By chance I didn’t listen you…

    • penis pump

      by chance i didn’t rissen you! *GONG*

  • Snailman

    You would have to be a complete idiot to buy bitcoin, similar in stupidity to Richard Branson, Michael Novogratz, Li-Ka Shing, Jerry Yang, Chamath Palihapitiya, Andreesen Horowitz, Google Ventures, Ycombinator, Accel Partners, General Catalyst, Union Square, Benchmark & Ribbit Capital.
