My fear is that all coins are dropping to 1.00 and the whole thing has been a gigantic scam.

Greedy hands got into the game long before the tech was actually ready to perform. A simple search should confirm how much time, effort and resources are being dumped into the cryptocurrency space.

Bitcoin and Etherium have been kind of boring perhaps putting in a technical floor.
Coins could get some competition from the stock market ETF's.
Nasdaq was down by over 4% today, thats more of price swing you would expect from a coin.
Nasdaq is technical so the players must have decided to widen the price range to bring in some gambling money to scare the bears.
Ex dividend doesn't mean anything to coin market players so ETF's might be the choice.

How do you invest in ripple? I have invested bitcoin in the UK using a wallet. There is a machine where I live that you can use. On the machine, there is also Ethereum. Ripple sounds interesting because it's still very cheap, but how do I invest?

Well, you are right in terms that BTC isn't the only player in the cryptocurrency market. But we have to admit that's its success and hype around it hold audience pretty effective. Bitcoin isn't just a cryptocurrency. It's stability and reputation. I read lots of stories about getting success with other crypto (like this blog.s-pro.io/breakthrough-blockchain-failure-success-interview/) but not so seldom I read about fails.

Same here. Though Coinbase is usually the easier entry into the main coins (I basically use both still).

Ripple is an odd one, as there was (still is?) a "reserve" you have to invest in first, but it was only like 20 Ripple or something. Been a while since I did anything with mine, as I bought it when it was higher unfortunately. Point is, you won't be able to actually sell it off (at least anytime soon), so currently, I still have like close to the minimum reserve amount in it. (I did manage to sell the rest of it before losing TOO much on it, hehe).

Blockfolio is a cool app I'd recommend also. Especially if your holdings are on multiple exchanges. It's just a tool that lets you have visibility to your entire crypto portfolio in one place, with real time pricing. It's very handy.

Monero is about to get hardware wallet support.

That's good enough for me to embrace it.

Question is: in how many places can you place a monero tip address?

Would the mods allow one to put that on the signature? Or how about in the about page?

Right now with payment processors banning conservatives, crypto may be the solution. But I'm sure banks will target exchanges even more if conservatives embrace crypto.

Any solicitation wouldn't be allowed. They are pretty strict on that.

Monero seems to be the coin choice of the criminal element. Just as an aside.

Monero is also the only true fungible currency. Totalitarian regimes are salivating at all the other coins with the permanent trace they give of all the transactions of their users.

Eventually only coins like monero can be the true future of cryptocurrency.

Or, governments may simply outlaw it, rendering it instantly worthless. (or at least harder to unload).

Such is the risk.

That is true, but we must hope that freedom and privacy prevails over the totalitarians and their ways.

Yes, and unicorns will fart rainbows....


Sorry, nothing personal, but governments aren't going to idly stand by for it. I suspect they'll instead, be in for a penny, in for a pound, as they say. However, some coins will benefit, and others will disappear. That's the nature of this very volatile market.

Add in some government crackdown, and first, it will prevent exchanges from being able to trade it. That means just relying on private purchasers. It also means the value of any coin so outlawed, will plummet to almost nothing, so even if you have it in your hardware wallet, you won't get jack for it.

Not to dissuade you, but I also want to be sure you realize the level of risk involved here. Earlier this year, we saw what just the HINT of such a crackdown could do to the market. It basically crashed it, repeatedly. And that was just from ONE key player.

Totalitarian Police states are what's in order, if crypto goes mainstream, and the mainstream digital currency lacks privacy.

The fate of humanity would be at stake, coin values are of far lesser importance.
