Well bros as you know it has been a pretty euphoric week. Some of you know my ethereum story -- a poster who will remain nameless (exeunt) made assurances that it would moon. In the middle of 2017 I panicked at the bottom of a 50% dump, selling at 147 after buying around $50. I bought back in as it climbed and made some more money but eventually sold it all after it went above 300. I made some decent money but not that much. At this time i was more concerned with trying to get OCI interviews rescheduled since I'd been activated for training in ft. Ripley, MN. (I did not get a single fucking offer)

Fast forward to November of what I believe was 2017 and it started mooning. I panic bought around 600 and it was over 700 by the end of the day. I bought quite a bit. I even bought some at $1,100 per coin. If I had held my original stack, I would have had $200,000 in eth.

The new year came and it fucking dumped bro. Oh baby. I bought a lot on the way down. In March it dead cat bounced. I started shopping for a condo. I made an offer that would have required selling all my eth. Got a counter about 4k higher. I didnt go for it because i didnt want to cut it that close on cash (nomortgagemo here) and didnt know if we would get our monthly bonus for good sales at work. As I was typing "stand on $91,500 for now" it was already dumping. I had already paid my crypto taxes from selling the year before. $8k. If I'd had that cash (it was March) I would have agreed to the counter.

It dumped an additional 60%, and we did easily hit our bonus. Somebody else bought the condo at $95,000. Over the course of the next year eth fell to $80. I bought massive stacks relative to my income and savings. I sold stocks go buy at 600, 500, and a lot in the 400 range.

That summer I quit my job. To be nice i had told my boss that I would quit that summer because i would need to take a law internship. I felt that because it was the summer before my final year of school, I needed one to try and hail mary a decent job for post grad after striking out at oci. All the midlaw and glorified shitlaw firms i interviewed with shot me down, one without even giving me a callback interview. The Ohio attorney general and county prosecutors did as well. The only internship i got was with an ancient shitlib solo practitioner who paid ten bucks per hour -- less than the walmart was advertising for new hires.

I liquidated my 401k from the old job to buy more eth. It was $30k reduced to $15k after taxes and penalty. I found a 2nd job in the spring interning at an insurance defense office for a higher wage.

It was a better job with better attorneys but they only gave 20 hours per week. So I did the rest of the week at the woman's place.

I got notified that I would be deploying with my national guard unit in January 2019. I would be going to NTC and then to the middle east. I had just been given a job as the logistics officer for the entire battalion, a job I did not want, did not request, and did not receive any training for after 6 years as a scout platoon leader and executive officer.

I worked a drug deal to skip two weeks of a four-week "gunnery" exercise in april, in order to attend enough classes to graduate in may as planned. I kept buying as much eth as I could -- more time spent with the army made that possible.

NTC was miserable and state "pre mob" training was somehow worse. I frayed mentally as my repeated failures and ignorance hurt the entire battalion. We left home in August for "post mob" training in new Mexico. I had more support but the operational tempo was withering. Eth went nowhere but I kept buying.

We jumped the puddle and i went to Iraq after one day in kuwait. My boss flip flopped and sent me and a few others back to Kuwait after 4 days in Iraq. A month later i was in uae running logistics for a multinational op. We got back to Kuwait on Christmas. On new year's, Iran bombed the place I was at in iraq. I kept buying eth. I'd been promoted and the tax free pay made buying easy.

Two months later i was back in uae. The exercise became totally confused due to marine corps involvement. A marine died in a rollover. Covid struck the middle east and they closed the pool I'd been sneaking into. The exercise force never showed up and our trainees lost a very expensive radio. The covid dump happened and eth dropped to its post-moon-era low, 85. I bought a ton.

A month later i was in Saudi arabia, separated from my team again doing logistics (and personnel, and contracting, and acquisitions) for the whole detachment in Saudi arabia. It has been an extreme challenge with a typical workday including gym, of 15 to 16 hours. But a funny thing happened the past couple weeks -- my eth mooned.

I'm truly euphoric that I held through it all. I have more money now than i could have imagined -- i am negotiating on a condo in my old neighborhood. Theres still a chance someone else wins it from me before i execute, but i hope not. It is overpriced so I'm feeling confident.

I have budgeted for funding a local election campaign I'll be pursuing while i study for the bar, for a jeep, for a trip to transylvania, and to fix up my town car--and even after paying for all that and my condo in cash, I will have enough to support my law practice i will open when I pass the bar, and then some.

Guys please always have faith that your luck can turn around. Have the courage to hold, the patience to let it happen and the faith that God has a plan for you.

i don't get it. can't read through all that shit but seems like you bought at tremendously high prices (600, 1000 etc) and now suddenly it "mooned" at $350 and you have more money than you ever dreamed of?

it'd make sense if you broke even or made a small profit, but to say you went "heavy" at 600+ and now you have "more money than you dreamed of" is kind of confusing.

I guess it is confusing because i was in it "heavy" relative to my station in life as a shitbanker and then a minimum wage worker. When I started to get paid as a deployed officer, it made the amount of eth I was able to accumulate dwarf what I had stacked after years of buying with a working class salary

This is a pretty legit fear. I have been exiting since it went above 300. I panicked during the dump from 330 to 307 and sold about 8% of my stack at 307. In the intervening time I have sold between 10 and 15% of my stack

uhh so you have about 150k in eth, and that's before paying taxes

150k in one account (plus the 25k in cash I have sold from eth) is fine with me as a former and future minimum wage earner.

so you profited less than 50k from all this (percentage-wise making less than 50%) and could have made more if you had just bought the s&p? and how can you be a lawyer and military officer expecting to make less than min wage? not trying to shit on you just genuinely confused.

that's perfectly fine if that were his message, but instead made his screed sound like an "i made it" story where he ended up with FUCK YOU MONEY, especially with the below exaggerated quote:

"I'm truly euphoric that I held through it all. I have more money now than i could have imagined -- i am negotiating on a condo in my old neighborhood."

lol like really nigger u couldn't "imagine" having slightly more $ than what u put in? rofl.

lol so ignoring ur massive losses early on, u put in $100k+ and u have $150k pre-tax.

what a life changer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that's similar to most 100% matching 401k's up to 5% of salary, assuming a 10% run from 2016 to 2019. i guess everyone I know has a life altering amount of money.

Do you have autism bro? It's not hard to imagine why going from losing everything and not being able to pay for gas to ending up with 8 years of salary saved and achieving all of one's financial goals results in a positive feeling. My tax losses from losing $60,000 or whatever it was are locked in
