I don't have much spare cash & what I do have is what remains from a £7000 loan I took out recently (total interest of £500 over 5 years) to pay off credit cards, but I want to put a little bit into either BTC or ETH.
I've got a Coinbase account set up with a weekly limit of £325 so I can either buy approx 0.14 BTC or approx 1.8 ETH as of now.
I bought a BTC when they were £100 & sold £650 so can't really moan but it is galling to be thinking about spending three times as much now for way less than half as much BTC as I got back then (it wasn't even that long ago in the scheme of things)
I also bought 0.5 ETH (£100 at the time) worth of EOS tokens during the initial 5 day period so have 154 EOS in my wallet which is one of the reasons I'm wondering about about buying ETH.
Many people seem to think EOS might be a ETH killer for all sorts of reasons & others are writing that the sheer number of ICO's happening are going to cause a bubble.
If I'm being sensible I think I should invest in a bit of BTC. The signs are that the majority have accepted the proposed changes due on August 1st & this should increase confidence & reliability I think.
Excuse my non technical wooly language on this. I'd have to do a Google search to find the correct terminology ("segwit" comes to mind) & what exactly was happening & I want to buy soon (my girlfriend might not be on board for long).
BTC or ETH? Or something else entirely (although in reality LTC is the only other option in Coinbase)
Thanks for reading.
