Naaaah, just kidding. With crypto (IMO) you can make more cash "legally", if you are in for trading only.

BTC is my main portfolio nowadays, with 50% spread round Litecoin and Stellar

Prices of cryptocurrencies are looking good... not sure how the Weed market does though. HODL HODL HODL
Prices are looking good, for 10 bitcoins you can buy a house somewhere in Spain that might become a better investment for your money especially with the economical prognosis

Warren Buffett was sure that Amazon and Google will fail. He claimed the same about Crypto...

We'll see where we stand in a few years

'Got set up with an account'...through what service? Or what wallet?

It's pretty clear you have almost no clue what you are doing (inclduing by your own admission). I suggest you do a lot of research before you invest any money in crypto-currency. Otherwise, you are just asking to be robbed blind and lose any money you invest.

As a side note, asking on a car forum is probably not the best way to start your research.

Not sure what he did with the crypto, but he left the company we worked at and started a consulting company (I also left but for a different reason).

Lol crypto is not even close to dead. We are at the start of this technological revolution, this is just the beginning. Blockchain is going to create the next internet version 2.0.

The vast majority of people who got into crypto have lost, with many losing big. I think we'll see ETH sub $100 before it's all over. I think the capitulation in the alts is only just beginning. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility to see ETH at $100, LTC at $25, and BTC at $6100.

There's simply no liquidity in this market nor excitement to pump up, let alone support current pricing. At least as I see it.

Pretty much this says it all, I approve. Most of my friends are saying that crypto will never become an alternative currency but the thing is I've been successfully mining via my hashflare contract and there is absolutely no struggle. I even linked them this hashflare review so they could see that it is still working just fine but I guess some people will never learn.

At current prices, you can pay off your investment in hardware in under 2 years if you get free electricity.

If you pay for electricity at normal retail rates, it's hardly worth it.
