Absolutely, that's what my advice would be. Buy a gaf and be mortgage free for life. But he reckons he'll end up being a multi millionaire from this so is going to hang on to them.

I also advised him not to go near them back in January when he invested so he's probably taking my current advice with a pinch of salt LOL

Surely the shot here is to cash out half the bitcoin now and let the rest mature. 

That way you have your initial outlay of €50k recouped plus €162,500 in profit and you still have €215k worth of bitcoin

Does your brother in law has a Revolut card though Gaz?  That is THE question.
So you've decided to read this eh?

I doubt there will be a long haul.

Id probably take out 200K and clear it off the mortgage or if I didnt have one take out a similar amount and buy a gaff.Even in Dublin 200K towards a mortgage is a huge burden to have off your shoulders.

200K into long term more stable investments another option.Bitcoin is probably once in a life time investment ,hope he gets out with as much money as possible.
