From a longterm perspective, it's pretty risky to hold onto btc, no? So in terms of profit, you made a good decision, no? I am an absolute newbie to cryptocurrency and not that financially literate when it comes to investing, but what I'd like to understand is the long term investing.
It might collapse one day due to unexpected causes like when most of the BTC used to be stored in JPN's stock market and some thieves stormed it and wiped it clean and the BTC back then dropped enormously... I am sure since then, the finances might be secured well, but still there's some "hazard" / risk or chance that it might collapse suddenly again and won't get back to it's peak... I guess this high risk / reward is a big part of investing in general then... and be it cryptocurrency or some stocks it does not differ that much, right? It's about the "timing" of selling it for profit? Or is there an actual reason to just leave your money in BTC or Etherum without monitoring it from on a daily basis? Because unlike real estate which usually grows in it's value over time, the currency sooner or later hits its peak and then everyone will just panically sell, no? :D
