DCA vs. All In

Consider the following question. Say you have $10k in cash that you are going to invest in bitcoin. Do you dollar cost average, or just go all in with the 10k right now? This question is for the current time and market conditions, not some other theoretical time.

In my mind, you'd go all in right now, if you are at all bullish and mainly thinking about the long-term (10-20+ years).

DCA would be more of a hope that you'd be getting your average purchase price down. But implies that you are more concerned with shorter term returns.

In the end, maybe it comes down to simply getting into the market and HODL vs. trying to time the market? And the relative risk of missing out on the upside vs. trying to buy at the absolute bottom.

Saw a comment the other day about "stackin sats" with x$/day. Maybe that is because the person has a steady stream of income that they are trying to invest, which makes that the best approach for them. But presuming you had the $ all at once...

If anybody has anything to add, I'd appreciate it.
