A lot of people are freaking out and selling everything. Hopefully they didn't invest more than they were okay with losing. Sure doesn't feel like it though.

surely you remember when bitcoin hit $2 following the dramatic crash from $32... those were uncertain times.  it was too late then too i gather.

Wake me up when it gets back to $2. I'll throw a few coins at it then just for the lols.

How many times has Bitcoin lost 50% of it's value in the past?

Bitcoin went from ~1000 to ~250 a couple years ago.

Yeah, it was more of a rhetorical question.  Lots of people seem to be willing to dance on Bitcoin's grave and laugh about the price drops.  I'm not quite as confident that this is over.

Love it.

I was so sure that was going to be satire. But alas, no.

I was expecting something like "infrastructure efforts are ongoing to restore power to 80% of the island, but we're confident that blockchain's disruptive and transformative effects on the economy are more important than putting roofs back on buildings after the hurricane."

Or maybe "cryptocurrency is going to save our ravaged country because a distributed immutable ledger is immune to the corrupt interference of central bankers and their imaginary fiat currency manipulations, a feature we desperately need as we continue to ask the international community for financial aid to rebuild our roads and sewer systems."
