Bitcoin: More ideology than trustworthy currency ZDNet

Don't sell due to NY DFS and the BitLicense proposal... Hodl. Show Lawsky and the banks that Bitcoin cannot be stopped... with or without regulation.

The price of Bitcoin is a direct reflection of investor confidence in this technology and the future expectation of its success. If the price continues to fall due to NYC over-regulating it, more and more people will view Bitcoin as not being a legitimate currency. We prove the nay-sayers right when the price is volatile. We hurt self-employed miners (the backbone of this economy) with diminishing returns. We hurt small business and innovation by basically "giving up." Think back to why you invested in this technology. Those reasons are still alive. Want to feel more confident and see how history is repeating itself? Watch YouTube speeches from Bruce Fenton, Rickard Falkvinge, or anything by Andreas Antonopoulos. Anyone expecting a quick return in this disruptive technology needs to rethink their strategy. We won't go to the moon if we give up now. More importantly, we won't get the attention of the mainstream media if the price does not get high enough. Money talks, and if the price stays steady in the wake of all this turbulence caused by regulation, the media will wake up and take Bitcoin even more seriously, thus perpetuating its success. There is so much innovation happening right now, and the smartest minds in the world are contributing, even leaving "dream jobs" to risk it all on Bitcoin. That should tell you something too. So, wait it out for at least a year. Better yet, 3-5 years. This won't happen overnight. I bought in when we were in the 800's and have continued ever since. Haven't seen a profit yet, but I am more confident in Bitcoin than anything I have ever invested in... but it's going to take time to fight these well-established deep-pocketed industries and "old timers" in charge. It will happen. Buy more and Hodl. Lawsky and others will see that they can't keep a good thing down. Nothing is more powerful than an idea who's time has come... and nothing gets more headlines than the price - so don't panic sell. If you've been involved long enough, you'll get familiar with these price swings. It's the long term that trend that should be your guide.

If almost everybody doesn’t want to buy bitcoin for the next hour, the price is whatever someone will accept.
