All very nice the uprising trend. I don't want to be a party-pooper. But as a fellow citizen, I'd like to remind everyone that you should only invest what you can afford to lose. Prices can literally drop down to almost zero in a blink of an eye (don't discuss with me here that XRP is therefore a good choice as it is stable, has potential etc). Are you sure you are mentally ready for that, if that happens? Greed, fear, regret and panic are very strong emotions and can make you do crazy stuff. I just want you to realize that. Reading about others major gains and positions will cause regret that you didn't invest earlier. And you might feel the need to catch-up on people's gains by risking more money. Yesterday people where asking on the chat 'should I re-mortgage my house to invest more?' Please remember you can literally lose everything in a blink of an eye. Maybe not due to dropping prices, but maybe just because of sloppy security practices and someone hacks the funds away from you, or an exchange being hacked. Greed, fear, regret and panic can all cause you to be not thinking clearly. What is it worth to you to have enormous gains in a day? Are you willing to risk your house, your family, your life? I read yesterday on /r/bitcoin that a month after the Mt Gox thing, the top post on there was about a suicide hotline. People have endured terrible mental stress by losing what they could not afford to lose. Realize these things for yourself and make rational decisions when you are 100% sure you do this when in fact you are rational, and not blurred by greed, fear, regret or panic.
