I don't understand, but I know it was at it's highest this week.

I found a post online where someone bought a pizza in 2010 with $41 worth of bitcoin. That is worth $9 million now. I wish I was tech savvy in 2010 and mined and kept them until now.

I don't understand it at all. I worked with a guy very briefly that was super into bitcoin. He's probably rich now.

How easy is it to actually turn that into liquid cash? Is it as simple as transferring it to a bank account?

I think there are several hoops to jump through, and most of the "bitcoin banks" aren't in the US, but I would say it's a hassle that's worth it.

Reddit yesterday said that there are tons of buyers, and tons of marketplaces to do it. They made it sound like it was very easy.

I stand corrected.

Should we all invest now? Buy high and sell low, right?

At least his math checks out. If I understood more about Bitcoin buying and selling I'd consider it.

I might start mining. Or rather you lease your computer in a way and get paid out in Bitcoin. Based on this I can make $125 a month after figuring in electrical cost

The calculator said my GPU should earn around $125/month (after figuring in electrical cost). I ran it over the weekend and I was only averaging a couple bucks a day. I shut it off.
