I bought my first bitcoin, election night, 2016. Things looked a bit dodgy and I thought it would be a good hedge. Actually not even a whole bitcoin, just a fraction of a bitcoin. By the time I went to use it in the summer of 2017, I had money from no-where. Now Bitcoin is up 10X in 364 days and my little nest egg is still growing.

Bitcoin was $721.19 on election night, 2016. Exactly 364 days later, mid-day, we’re looking at $7,016.23. Wow!
