    this guy is still ahead of the game though. how about the rest of you BTC pros that were very adamant about buying McLarens and retiring by now?

    There's a town about 45 minutes from me, Massena, that used to have 3 big plants, a GM, Alcoa and Reynolds Aluminium. All 3 made aluminium, right on the St. Lawrence river right next to a hydro dam, got cheap power from the NY Power Authority. Alcoa bought Reynolds and shut the plant down then the GM plant closed, 5000 jobs gone, really hurt the whole area. The town, county, state everybody was / is desperate to find a use for what's left for buildings and of coarse jobs. A couple years ago a Bitcoin mining outfit convinced them all to give them a bunch of incentives to set up in one of the empty buildings and worse, got the Power Authority to allocate them a bunch of cheap power. Not sure how many jobs it created but it's looking like the government got snookered.

    You would think a politician could spot a con man when they see them...

    No need to gloat. I don't like to see anyone lose money...most of all myself.

    I played with a couple of days pay and got burnt.

    It reaffirmed something I learned long ago: Don't invest in something you can't adequately describe to a reasonably bright 12 year old using a crayon and a napkin.

    I asked an investor friend about the best way to short Bitcoin back in the 12k+ days. I was too scared of more irrational exuberance to act on his advise (something about shorting a fund that was linked to bitcoin but which I was not dependent on the ability actually buy/sell BTC directly).

    I knew it was going to fall apart when all the branches and variants started happening.
