i understand caring about btc value if you've been invested for awhile, but given that (IMO) it probably won't go past 100k I don't see why people don't explore other coins that seem just as capable of doing 5x-10x easily. but i guess if it goes to a million then i'm an idiot.

That was my thinking investing in alts at the start of the year, since then BTC has gone from 1k to 14k+

what's the consensus on prices once futures go live in a few weeks? The article I read said this was the short of a lifetime

Am I right in imagining that prices will skyrocket and a lot people will sell within a few days?

i mean iota went up 3x the other day (and i only bought in at 1.50 - imagine buying in earlier?) and i regularly see 50-100% gains on coinmarketcap (pump n dump groups aside)

Is there a primer or a regularly updated resource aside from this thread that one should go to become more informed?

This shit is still too overwhelming for me

Coinbase app isn't working now...
Is there a way to transfer ETH within Coinbase to BTC, or does it only allow you to buy from your bank account? (which takes 5 days)
If it's really going to just keep going up maybe I'll move something over...
