Just showing that Aso is the wrong guy for the job.

Yep, BITCOIN is as dodgey as the people in the know say. I know many that have fallen for BITCOIN and have lost small fortunes. Definitely stay away from it.

And there's the other side of the coin (pun intended) where people have made a ton of money from Bitcoin!

A friend of mine bought 1,000 of them several years ago at $5 each. He offered to sell me 100 at $12 each. I scoffed. Now he's laughing all the way to the bank!

Really? How? Did they panic and sell when it had a minor drop in price? I have a hard time seeing how anyone up until now could have lost money on bitcoin unless they grossly mismanaged it and/or panicked. It's been on a consistent climb upwards in value basically since it was released, so only someone extremely bad with investments could have lost a small fortune at this point. Conversely, pretty much anyone who has invested in it until this point will have made money - there just have not been opportunities to lose money yet.

I guess they could have had their bitcoins stolen in one of the many heists by Hackers over the past few years.

I doubt it - the poster said they 'know many that have fallen for BITCOIN and have lost small fortunes'. Not many people have actually been hacked. Very few in fact.

I think the poster was likely just blustering, without thinking through that it's pretty easy to point out the flaw in their theory.

I just got a "wallet"

I know zero about bitcoin.

A well meaning friend deposited 0.1 of a bitcoin into my account.

I'm on the rollercoaster guys!

Nice guy, considering that's around $1750ish right now. Very well meaning friend indeed.

You wouldn't have just made that up, right?
