It took me longer than it should to make the jump towards the world of Bitcoin, but I did it, and it was a big step.

People would talk to me about Bitcoin back when it was valued under £450. This makes me feel nowadays like I missed an opportunity.

Even if I got into it a bit late, buying bitcoin when it was around £2,700, I have a smile on my face today, seeing as the value of it, as of this date, is of £12,906. Seeing how the value of my investment has gone up so much, how could I not smile?

I’ll never be able to say that I bought it for under £450 when it reaches £100,000. However, I will be able to say that I bought it for £2,700 when it reaches £100,000, which will still sound and feel great.

The purpose of that statement is to show how I feel, because I think this is just the beginning for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Over the next few years there will be plenty of high and lows, but over time it’ll always end up going positive.

I’m far from being a financial advisor, but seeing the big picture here isn’t too hard. It’s a bit of a gamble, but it’s a gamble I’m willing to take because the possibility of its value going even higher outweighs the possibility of me losing my investment. If it dropped to zero I’d lose £2,700 per Bitcoin, but what if it just went up and reached £100,000.

Consider this: Bitcoin went from being worth £0.37 to almost £13,000 already, all over the course of 8 years now. It’s not incredibly hard to believe that it could reach £100,000 sometime, probably even sooner than expected. Because of this, I’m willing to make a gamble, worst case scenario is that I lose the entire £2,700, but if I don’t the profit I’d get from this investment is massive.

However, I never bet more than I can afford to lose, and you should take that as a piece of advice, only invest what you can afford to lose.

These are all my thoughts as someone just getting into this world, I still have plenty of things to learn but even now I can see a good future for cryptocurrency.
