    Meh. That’s fairly easy. Get in early, when the price is cheap and make sure you sell off all of your holdings before the founder and their friends cause the market to crash when they sell off all of theirs at the same time. The longer you wait, the more money you make. But the longer you wait, greater your risk of getting shafted.

    Electronic currencies hyped by grifters, assorted criminals, tin-hat paranoids, “trendies” who jump into any “latest thing,” and the government of El Salvador. Yeah, that’s the pot I’ll throw my life savings into.

    What’s really worrisome, is that my representative in the federal government, a man I’ve supported through several elections, is claiming crypto currency will stop inflation.

    I recently saw a poll that asked crypto investors how low they thought Bitcoin would go. About 25% said zero.

    Well, it sold some computers, so that stock is doing well. I wonder how long before people realize the U.S. currency is printed on paper and the govt. isn’t doing much to control inflation?

    If you bought $64,000 worth of Bitcoin in November 2021, it would be worth $19,000 today.

    If you invested $100,000 in Truth Social when it first opened up, it would be worth $25,000 today. Due to litigation, technical issues and poor employee morale, it is still losing value.

    Some investments aren’t worth it.

    No one has commented on how subtle Wiley’s cartoon is. The guy will teach the sucker about cryptocurrency for real money but credit cards are accepted for payment. Sheer genius, Wiley! That got a real LOL from me.

    One of my favorite lessons I learned in history class. The teacher pointed out that most people who went west to strike it rich in the gold rush went broke — but the people selling the shovels, pans, tents, etc., THEY did very well!

    Yep. It’s just like those old Magazine Ads offering to tell you “How To Make Money by Advertising in Magazines.”

    One caveat: If someone Does respond to your Ad by sending you a dollar, you Have to return something of “Value” to them or it’s a Federal Mail Fraud rap. So, be prepared to go past the local 7th Day Adventist church and ask for a bunch of copies of “The Watchtower”. Slap an Address on them and mail them off and you are covered. Or, maybe just a bunch of Jesus Pamphlets … Whatever they are giving away Free.

    The Law says you have to return Something of Value, but it doesn’t specify a minimum value.
