I got in early, won't say how many I have/had, but made 8,000% yes, eight thousand percent on my investment when it reached $1,200 as much as a troy ounce of gold.

Still got some. I think the next high will be $3-4,000 per bitcoin.

It is legit.
I opened a Wells Fargo separate account and got me a Coinbase Wallet. Took allot of red tape to get one, more than a bank account in the US. Made sure the Coinbase account had the security lock in the browser, otherwise you are giving your money away to hackers.

Sold my bitcoin twice once at $1,200 and then recently at $1,100 per bitcoin. I did not believe it was legit until the international bank wire hit my account and I transferred it to my checking account. It actually is legit and I made 8,000 % return on it.

So you bought them at $15 and sold at $1,200?!?! I hope you bought a couple thousand dollars worth. That's a killer return. I looked at getting some pretty early on but passed. Guess I made the wrong call.

Even better yet, when I asked my Tax CPA if I had to pay capital gains tax on the investment, she said, "huh", what?" "what is a bitcoin.?"

The IRS still doesn't know how to handle it.

It was a dicey investment and I didn't bet the farm, but it was like going to Vegas and then watching it daily. When the International Monetary Fund closed down the banks in Cypress due to austerity measures, it went nuts to the price of a troy ounce of gold in no time. Then Brexit caused another recent run from $300 to $1,100. Now most are bought by Chinese and Middle East investors.

Congratulations. Sounds like you hit a home run.

Can you provide an explanation of what they are and how one buys and sells them. Also, I'm not certain that I understand why the closing of banks in Cypress and Brexit would cause the value of bitcoins to skyrocket. Can you please explain the correlation.

A buddy of mine started a Bitcoin ATM service: https://www.wired.com/2013/05/robocoin/

but then they shut it down a few years later: http://www.coindesk.com/robocoin-rom...coin-services/

IIRC, they were able to operate in Canada alright but there was too much red tape in the States.

I don't own any, but I do find it fascinating. I will buy some to mess around with in the near future.

To understand what Bitcoin is, and how it works, Google up Andreas Antonopolous. He has been a guest on JRE podcast a couple of times, and it is a really interesting subject. Episodes 581 and 844

The beauty of Bitcoin, is that it is a decentralized currency. It has no real exchange rate, and is not beholden to any government or bank.

If you find the concept interesting, listening to Andreas describe how it works, is really incredible. He's The Godfather of Bitcoin, and makes his living from supporting and using it.

I listen to podcasts in the truck, it's my version of books on tape.

Company I work for was building chassis for the processors for bitcoin mining. We started delivering 200 a week and after a few weeks they would revise the chassis. We would start again and they would change again. 6 months later they went out of business. VERY risky business.
