    I'm holding Ethereum because it has a higher ROI than Bitcoin. Both are good for long term investments.

    big in btc since 2017
    big in eth since 2017
    big in altcoins spread over many these change change constantly.

    best investment decision (hell best decision of my life period) was getting heavily involved in crypto 4 years ago. MY Only regret is not getting in back in 2014 when i first became interested in it.

    I'm invested heavily in the US dollar. I think the current inflation is only temporary, and there's absolutely no way a market crash (which is incoming) could really hurt a currency of which 40% currently in circulation has been printed this year. Besides, if they just keep printing more of them, that means they're good, right?

    Turn back time. Yeah, what the f\*\*k was I doing jerking off to this video back than. Well I guess it was better than the Sears catalog but not better than the Tawney Kitaen White Snake video or Simply irresistible video.

    A great list .I would rank some a little differently but that is just personal preference. It was nice of you to take the time to do this.You can certainly tell the people who are mad they missed the boat but it still isn't to late.It is just a lot harder than it was.

    Bitty will double in a years time. That's what the experts are saying.

    Slow consistent gains every few months until it doubles in a year. Bitcoin is the safest Crypto currency investment. Others you gotta roll the dice a bit but will probably perform better..

    BTC dumps

    Yet my portfolio goes up

    $LUNA is King
    If you're a hodler short term price doesn't matter.
    $LUNA is undervalued, price is catching up. Watch what happens during a bear market when people move large amounts into stables and $LUNA is ready and waiting.

    Anyone can throw a dart at crypto within a only few years ago and have great success stories. U should understand anyone involved either already is very successful or on there way to being very successful. I remember his name somewhere along the way so my guess is he’s telling the truth. It’s still not to late and you don’t even have to rush, buy it in small pieces and have a goal to own just 1 bitcoin by 10 years. Don’t be the guy on the side saying these things to people still down the road.

    I’ve made over +50k in the last two years with Btc Eth & Ltc. Unfortunately for me & my financial situation. I’ve had to collect those earnings & use them to help make ends meet due to my physical impairment & can not do my day job anymore as a construction/electrician.

    I still hold some Btc as of right now when I bought in @ 46k months ago. I didn’t necessarily say the OP was lying, but just wanted a backstory on how he got there, since he made such a massive claim. I’m not one of those guys where I felt like I’ve missed the boat completely, so you’re comprehending my message inaccurately.

    One of my better decisions of the year. When I got in, TerraUSD (UST) - LUNA's stablecoin, was at #57 on CoinMarketCap. It is now at #26.

    It's the #4 stablecoin. Only Tether, USDC and BUSD are ahead of it marketcap-wise. Highly recommend UST when one wants to take profit and put it into a stablecoin. UST will earn ya 20% APY passive income in the Terra Station Wallet. I like that you have control of the stake and not an exchange.

    LUNA can also be staked in the Terra Station Wallet. Youtube will have tutorials on how to get going with LUNA and UST.....

    It does seem like that doesn't it?

    If it is like that, how can it be that way?

    Money does not (shouldn't) just appear from nowhere to pay all the winners without any losers.


    I think I know what it is telling us.

    Seems that the guys that lose are always switching coins trying to FOMO in. Then they get frustrated when their coin's down and sell early. Whales know how to play into human emotions. I switched over to metaverse tokens in July and August. Then there wasn't any movement and I moved some to the ADA ecosystem and a little others. Facebook changed their name to Meta and a lot of those tokens that I moved went up 100x. The losses always hurt more than the wins. I'm adding long shot metaverse coins that haven't hit such as GAIA to go along with the tokens listed above.

    Are you saying crypto is a Ponzi?

    It's not an easy concept to take in. Supply and demand. If everyone sold all their Bitcoin at once, the last guy out would only be selling for a few satoshis. (not counting BTC forever lost).

    Exchanges make money on fees, loans and bad traders. Underneath it all, crypto encourages long term investing. As long as the faith in crypto is strong, it will keep going onward and upward. Crypto is still in it's infancy, still onboarding newcomers. There may come a day when the volatility is completely gone but not anytime soon....

    Not intended as a ponzi. But maybe its been played by outsiders to be be a partial ponzi.

    There seems to have been too much winning to be logically possible. Especially with Bitcoin itself.

    Someone logically has to be "printing money" if there are as many winners as there appears.


    I think it is starting to become common knowledge that tethered coins have become the vital grease that powers trading on exchanges.

    It also appears that the owners of USDT have managed to increase the total amount in circulation by more than 60 billion $ in 2021 with zero proof there really is any US$ backing for it as they claim there is.

    USDC operators are also under scrutiny for the same thing.

    Congress has a committee looking at crypto exchanges and issues like this right now.

    I've only learned about this recently but the story has been bubbling along all year.

    Crypto companies have to respond to questions by mid December.


    I'm a bit spooked by it for the short term. But am also hoping it does blow up too as I am sure there will be a massive over reaction initially. I'm ready to sell out with the plan to buy back in if/when the poo hits the air circulator.

    Not sure enough it will all go down soon to sell out completely. But will take 50% out some time before the end of week 1 January.
