It’s nice to see you being so blunt and direct with regards to investing in crypto. Not that this is anything new as I know this has been your stance since I’ve been following you. But would be great if everyone had this mindset before investing. I love crypto but i just hate the hype and bullsh!t that comes with it. Thoroughly enjoyed this. 5⭐️

Thanks! Yeah I think for most things like this, the loudest voices are often the most delusional, which causes all sorts of backlash, so if I'm going to have a voice in this space I'd rather it just be one of what I consider reality - which is subjective of course, but what else am I going to talk about other than my own opinion xD

Best article yet. Love this! Crypto reminds me of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I tell everyone not to get into it because inevitably there are moments you get hurt, but then also tell them how much fun I have doing it. 😂

Yeah - even though I believe all this stuff, I still participate, because I'm insane. But also cuz it's fun, at times!

Thanks for the advice. I've been dragged into it by a friend early 2020, so got BTC and ETH still cheap. When ETH hit 4K we sold a bunch and made some money. We've (me and my other half) made the decision to sell some BTC then also. Decided to transfer only 1/2 BTC from Celsius to our exchange and then it disappeared for 5 WHOLE DAYS!! Luckily we didn't move all of it. After franticly panicking and a thousand emails to Celsius, the BTC magically reappeared back in Celsius (pfewww). We then made the brave decision to bring it all across to our exchange and it wasn't long after, Celsius went bust. We made a killing with the interest received on our investments (BTC was 5.5%) and can't complain. I made a killing during 2020 to 2021 with just trading 'shit coins'. It felt good... however, didn't sell and now it is worth almost nothing PLUS I'm sitting with sooo sooo many NFT's (LOL) that is just sitting in OpenSea, reminding me on how stupid i can be. I'm still in 2 minds about getting bags of DOGE and XRP before the next bull run begins :/ Love your articles (Fanks :) )
