Put in a little about a year or so ago. Moved it about a week or so ago to different places after seeing everyone talk about buying it up. Shoulda waited a few more days.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Remember when bitcoin was a penny? Going back to 2010 here, imagine buying $25,000 worth of bitcoin, so 2,500,000 units. Sell that today for $17,000 a piece. Congratulations, at 42 billion dollars you are now richer than the founders of Google.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Yeah. If only. Didn’t make a killing but enough to feel good about pulling other monies to cover the truck. I’m hoping my CBD based investments really take off. Then I’ll be a happy camper. Just need a couple $10.00+ Valuations and I’ll be a happy guy.

Meh, Ozzy is ok, but I've always thought BLS was pretty good. Was never a consistent listener but would still pop them up every once in a while. Stillborn was always a favorite.

When BLS goes acoustic, that is the shiznit.

No doubt. There was a dude who put in a few hundred bucks when it was just pennies, and had forgotten about it. He checked back in on it earlier this year and was able to buy a Lambo (to each their own).

Having said that, I'm keeping my eye on Litecoin and others. I think they will eventually catch up to bitcoin, if not finding a stabilization point.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Curious as to what you guys sink your money into? Im sort of at an eggs in one basket point where I’m mostly in CBD startups. Pretty cheap buyins and average stocks would net pretty good ROI after a year or two of being public.

1) Hookers and blow
2) Guns and ammo
3) Many, many depreciating assets

Truthfully, the best thing my wife and I have invested in is our house. My wife does not like risk at all so playing in the stock market never appealed to her. She does not like to gamble, as she says: I work to hard for my money.

For me it's mostly Boostwerks. Although I've invested in mutual funds, my house, 401K, IRS (), and crypto's.

So far, the house, Boostwerks, and crypto's have been the big ROI's.
