I honestly think most of the people who got in expected this to be a means to get rich quick due to last year's bull run. This market is highly volatile and a lot of the fomo buyers folded a long time ago. If you are willing to hold you will eventually be rewarded, but no one can say when the next bull run will happen. This technology is not going anywhere, though individual crypto currencies may no longer be relevant in the future, while others become huge.Anyhow guys, only invest into bitcoins with money that you could afford to lose.
Chances are you'll make some money down the road but if it doesn't then it's no big deal to begin with.
It's like buying the lottery, those money you could afford to lose on the off chance of striking it big - only bitcoins offers a higher chance.
