Bought The Top

This is my personal story on how I started and get involved in Crypto.

It was October 2017 that I came across a story on internet about crypto that triggers me to invest.

Prior to that I was suppose to invest in a stock of a local company, after doing the research, I did not pull the trigger and invest, only to find out a year later that the stock price has risen to 500%. I was kicking myself after I found out.

Fast forward to October 2017.  I did some research, then FOMO kicks in after I saw that the price continues to rise from $4k BTC to $8K BTC. 

Bought BTC around $8k, sold when it reach $15k First Week of December. Only to see Bitcoin at $20K. 

The sentiment at that time was euphoric. Everyone belief that Bitcoin will continue to rise after a correction. 

So, I bought the dip at $13k feeling like a genius. 



Then the Bear came. It was a cold long winter that I would end when Bitcoin volatility decrease around $6k from August to November.

Then the drop to $3k happen. I got REKT.

Some "crypto analyst" expect a $1K bitcoin even less.


REKT Feeling

Some days I will wake up in the middle of night. Sometimes a I will feel a tingling sensation on my finger tips. Sometimes I just want to vomit.

Terrible feeling. 



I did HODL of course and continue to average in. My average BTC buy was around 7K . 

I am glad I did. The only problem was I bought some [email protected]  that died in the bear market.



Portfolio in Green

My Portfolio is now UP 60X even with this dip. 

I just hope that this dip is not a Bear market opening the door. 

I was hoping to be able to buy a house for my family and reinvest in the bear market again. 

Then maybe buy a LAMBO come next bull!



It really takes a lot of well power to hodl through the bear market. 

Much more will power to continue buying when the market is down and the sentiment is poor. 

I did sell some of my holdings on the disbelief phase. Because I could not belief that the market is going to recover. 

Some Alts that I bought are Dead and others are good as dead. Others makes me really happy. 

If you are a new investor in this space a.k.a. newcomer, Pump chaser investor.  Continue to learn understand the space. 

and for goodness sake stop chasing pumped coin.
