As a recovering Gold bug I have great sympathy for what die-hard bitcoin fans are about to experience. Years and years of grinding lower with the occasional wicked spikes up that bear markets are known for. Don’t get me wrong– I’m with the minarchists (e.g. Libertarians) and anarcho-capitalists in my excitement for crypto-currencies and their ability to transact anonymously not to mention their portability allowing you to move your entire net worth across national boundaries with a click of a mouse button. But with the crypto-mania having its blow-off top along with the retail public buying bitcoin it’s clear the top is in for now and it’s time to move onto the next big thing.
