So is investing in an accounting or law degree.
True

סדר זרעים is also called סדר אמונה, because planting a seed expecting it to rot in the ground and grow more than what that kernel is worth in and of itself requires מאמין בחי העולמים וזורע.

Knowledge of the future is impossible for humans. It is speculation. It could be well calculated, high odds etc, but it is speculation.
Agreed, speculation is about putting the odds in your favor, and if you were wrong get out fast, your first loss is your smallest loss in trading, investing is very different.

I've been telling people to buy for a while now.
They've been making a huge push in e-commerce but people are too scared to value them like a tech company.

If you just separated the online segment it'd be selling at huge multiples.
Live forever or die trying.

What do you think about the current price?

I wouldn't buy as investment but for speculation it might be great.
It's all about optics, if people start looking at it as tech it will rise a lot more.

A thought:

It appears that there will shortly be BTC futures.  Several here expressed interest in shorting BTC and these futures will be the most obvious way to do it.  There is presumably a lot of pent up shorting interest out there that will take advantage of this new way to short.  That should create a lot of selling pressure and drive BTC down at least on the first day the futures are trading.  Surely there will be future buyers as well, but most buyers have already bought actual BTC where as no short sellers have been able to sell yet.

Thoughts on ZROZ?

I know there are lots of things at play here, wondering if technical input should be one of them, and if yes, what does our resident guru say?
