    Hmmm, interesting, but regarding Bitcoin, instead of investing my own money, I find it makes much mores sense to simply MINE the coins – agreed? I’m using Kryptex (https://www.kryptex.org/?ref=a7ec1cfa) on regular PCs and making around $95/month, so I have zero fear of the “investment” and can hold long term.
