What will you do when you realize that your account is actually worth some money?

Ive been browsing the interwebs these last few day on info about this supposed bull market we will be seeing this year and that made me start thinking about what happens if there actually is a bull run and crypto moons again.

What happens if BTC goes to 50k and STEEM goes to $10?

Im someone that considers himself a longterm investor in STEEM, meaning that i will never completely powerdown. 5-10 years from now ill still be rocking a few thousand STEEM no matter the price. (or so i believe right now)
When i started up on Steemit 1 year ago, that was my first contact with cryptocurrencies. I knew absolutely nothing.
All i knew was that i can earn some cryptocurrency on Steemit. Thats about it.

Fast forward 1 year and i accumulated quite a bit (by my standards) of STEEM, WLS and bought a few other assets as well. Crypto was never my main source of income. It actually never was a source of income for me. In 1 year of my time here i have never sold a single STEEM and withdrew it to my account to spend it.
The only time i took STEEM out is when i needed to give someone their share of a payout and they wanted it in cash. But i personally never spent a cent of it.
That is mostly because my account is pretty small and my crypto holdings all together arent more then a couple thousand dollars worth which doesnt even make it worthwhile taking out. Also im of a belief that we arent even at 1/100th of the price STEEM has the potential to reach.

But one day STEEM might reach a new ATH and when it does, i could find myself sitting on something like 100k USD.

What then?

Will i be as “long term” as i am now when by selling my STEEM i could build not 1, but 2 houses from the money i made sharing opinions on stuff, pretending to be a blogger.

Financially, im pretty well off, but 100k USD is still a lot of money. Nothing to scoff at.
At what price point is a belief in the tech, in the idea of crypto, its potential and future replaced with:

Time to get my Lambo!

Are you that certain of crypto taking over from fiat that you will refuse to sell, ever? Who is brave and certain enough in that outcome to take that risk?
Honestly…. Im curious to see if i am. lol

Just some thoughts as always..

Keep on! 😀

This proves one thing. You just cant know these things for sure.

Like every morning i checked the STEEM page on Coinmarketcap. And one more day STEEM has been in the green. In a week STEEM has added $35 million to its market cap which is a formidable gain. It begs the question as to why that is happening. Could it be that folks are falsely expecting SMT test net on 15. March? Is it a recovery thats happening now that the STINC FUD has died down a bit? Was Steem in the oversold category? Are Korean exchanges the culprit?

Truth of the matter is that you cant know for sure.

If you can at all.
Great to see, though im still 40% down on my investment

Its hard to guess where we will end up going forward but im sure we wont see a major movement without the whole market recovering. Dont get me wrong. I firmly believe that STEEM has a place in the top 15 with double its Market cap, but im not sure we will see that happen. Thats actually around the price i would need to break even.
Not with all the shady business going on right now with the crypto exchanges, the favoritism and the politics of it all.
You come to crypto to escape all that just to find more of it.
But i trust that over time things will change.
You cant hype up failed projects or projects with low potential indefinitely. Even if you could, you just cant hype them up into long term success stories, no matter how hard you might try.

Anyways… Ill see you round.
