    My uncle-in-law is pretty good at the investment game.  I don't know so much about it but I listen when he talks.  The other day his son mentioned that he was thinking about buying some Bitcoin.  I looked over at the uncle to see what he had to say and he just rolled his eyes. 

    Me?  If your going to go with funny money, I'd think about stockpiling these:

    or even better yet, these:

  • Ethereum seems to be the next bubble to buy on but if "peasants" know about it then it's already too late...
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 11,248
    I just don't see how the value won't collapse, statistically almost nobody is using it as currency, it is only being used as an investment backed by nothing. 
    It's the ultimate fiat currency, which is why I'm confused it's been so largely embraced by the alt-right and libertarians.

    Can we talk about Crypto-currencies seriously? I have some BTC- XRP- XVG- DGB- XLM and RDD coins - half is in Bitcoin - hope to sell the others to increase my Bitcoin hodl.

    I can agree with that.  But, that has nothing to do with topic.  I.E. Crypto-currencies.

    I'm waiting on a serious explanation of how it will hold value if nobody actually uses it as currency.  Won't confidence and demand evaporate at some point?

    I know that if I had jumped on this wagon years ago, I would sure as shit be jumping off now.

    Of those I own BTC and XVG.  I dumped XLM and XRP.  Digibyte and reddcoin were two that I avoided.

    I am a big fan of ZEN and PIVX and I just picked up a lot of PIRL.  I try to get into ones that are more limited with under 100M.
  • buck502000buck502000 Birthplace of GIBSON guitarPosts: 8,108
    XVG - Verge - kinda went down - I was thinking of picking up a bit more.  I still like XRP - Ripple - as those are the two I plan on keeping for the next few months.  I only have a small bit in alt coins - maybe $1,000 - I might check out the PIVX.

    Yeah, a very astute move 5 years ago, buying now that it's known in the mainstream and traded like stock, that just seems stupid. 
    I'd be selling and walking away ahead.

    How many ICO's have there been and will there be? How many coins are out there now? How many average Joe's are investing in something they don't understand? This sure seems like a bubble to me, but im no expert so don't listen to me

    Blockchain technology on the other hand could be a different story as it gets utilized beyond crypto currencies... but again, I don't know shit lol

    When I see a small iced tea company switch to a blockchain company with no background or hardware, and its stock blows up because of that switch, I think it's safe to say we are in major bubble territory

    As a matter of fact, I think a crypto crash will likely cause a major problem in the US/world economy in the not so distant future. Or maybe not
