My Bitcoin investment strategy: Each time someone I meet talks shit about Bitcoin, I buy more.

I went to a friend's Halloween party last night. Someone (not me) brought up bitcoin. Another person, a CPA, started talking shit, saying Bitcoin is a bubble and that it's not real money.

While they were discussing Bitcoin I quietly opened the Coinbase app on my phone and bought some more bitcoin.
