    Doesn't everyone in SpaceX own shares, or at least options? That's 5000+.

    If you look at the institutions who own SpaceX (there was a list posted somewhere recently), one of them is the "SpaceX Employees Trust". The trust owns the stock, the trustees manage it, and the beneficiaries are the employees.

    Speaking only for myself, I feel like I have an investment today that has a 10x or better future ahead of it, over the next 10-15 years. It's that 10x that I'll be losing, as I don't have an alternative investment already in mind that I believe has that kind of future. I've done my due diligence, and I've found my long term investment, and I'm in it.

    From past experience, it's realistic that it might take me 10 years or more (and several years is likely) before I next find something that I have the same level of conviction in. That past experience being that I've had about 5 investments with this level of conviction ever, but can be realistically thought of as being over the last ~15 years or so. (And 3 of those 5 have been different purchases of Tesla :)).

    For me at least, that's the "big problem".
