Monero saved my ass. I bought it when it was only 5 dollar per coin.
It's the best thing that ever happened to me. If it wasn't for monero i would be working a 9 to 5 job.
But yeah, you can't just hodl it. It's also something sentimental, you have to trade the sentiment a bit. You don't have to daytrade but it's more about the big moves.
