Update: I won’t be investing in bitcoins after all, as Vox editor Ezra Klein explains. I apologize to readers for the misstep.
I’ve long been a Bitcoin optimist. You can read my case for Bitcoin here. But a few weeks ago, I decided to put my money where my mouth is and invest in Bitcoins.
This isn’t the first time I’ve invested in the cryptocurency. In early 2012, I bought some bitcoins for around $7 each. I held them until May 2013, when I took a new job at the Washington Post. The Post’s strict ethics rules required me to sell them for around $120 each. That proved to be a huge missed opportunity, as bitcoins skyrocketed to more than $1000 before the end of 2013.
