Maths is hard? You could have calculated the potential profit/loss to the last penny. In fact you could just enter the numbers on a site that does it for you, but that is too hard too?
The software is open source with a plethora of devs working on it, it's not hard to research the 'trust' element if you can't review the code yourself.
Even if you dislike bitcoin it has been immensely useful in so many ways to test:
1. A level of security (0 hacks, not a penny lost to any technical attack vector) of an amount of money unrivaled by any institution or software.
2. A game theoretic means of implementing consensus across a trustless global network.
3. A censorship resistant form for the transmission of value.
4. An immutable ledger of transactions which is again trustless.
That is incorrect. The dip you refer to was to around 500 bucks (in Jan) and it never went back to anything close to 100. The 9 upvotes are indicative of the levels of ignorance in these parts.
If you look at gold price from the 70s on there as much volatility or more in some periods.
Google is so hard.
I'm always somewhat shocked to see the levels of ignorance and blind disdain of crypto in the comments here. I would have thought technically minded people would 'get it'. I don't mean the speculation but the boundless opportunities many of these technologies open up. Then again, I remember how people thought the internet was a fad in the 90s. Crypto will not be far off in terms of importance and effects on society.
I bought one two months ago and love it. It runs KODI flawlessly and I use it for IPTV as well. The gaming experience is fair, it doesn't shape up so well against the PS4 but my 5 year old loves a lot of the games and the remote with headphone jack and voice search is ace! All in all it is a bit pricey but it's a fine bit of kit.
