The universal laws of speculating still apply
When I first started in Cryptos, I couldn't believe what was happening. I'd been speculating for 20 years and have never seen such a meteoric rise. To me, the markets have always been an exciting experience. My motto at the office is "welcome to the jungle". The crypto markets make the regular markets seem like they have training wheels on. The fear and greed are very amplified. There are all kinds of external factors that effect these exchanges such as hackers steeling, government rules changing, hard forks forking, and who knows what else. The truth of the matter is, this market is VERY thinly traded and many of the people "trading" have very little experience. The on and off ramps to the platforms are very slow and tedious.
Main street has barely gotten wind outside of bitcoin and maybe Ethereum.
My advice is.......Buy your favorite business ideas, cold store, do not spend your bitcoin or alt coins on your lifestyle!!!!! Close your eyes and fall asleep. The on and off ramps are being built as we speak!!!
5-10 years from now you will be very happy!!
