Cashing out to buy a house

Been a long ride, hodled until I had enough to pay off the house. Good luck to all and to all a good hodl!


First: love you all, and hope you all have a great ride.

Lots of questions and comments, and mostly positive. For those wondering why i cashed out: it was a very difficult choice, but i made it with this simple logic:

  • I am certain that my cash flow will be more flexible without large debt payments (mortgage);
  • The future is uncertain with respect to the value of my bc folio;
  • I am certain of my current value;
  • I am certain of my current debt;

So the value of the current certainty outweighed the uncertain future value of bitcoin. Therefore, i sold.

Today, I bought my first house with Bitcoin [Sorry for the potato picture, Facebook Live stream isn't the best quality]

Thank you Bitcoin. You have changed my life <3
