Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger were right… Bitcoin should worth zero

the 'expert' says you should invest up to 5% of your net worth in cryto but be prepared to loose it all? i guess if you are a young single with a steady 6 figure income and an oh well attitude. seems like it was all just a high tech ponzi scheme. oh well.

No idea why world governments don't crush crypto. Just refuse to exchange crypto for actual money.

The secret of the future is hidden in your daily routine. Crypto and forex trading is the future.

Not a single mention of the UST contagion issue and its effect on Luna. Not liking the coverage from these so called "experts". I get better news and info from YouTube and Twitter.

If you thought the value of online currency wasn't a real thing from the beginning, seeing this is like deciding
whether you want to watch a Marvel or Disney movie.

Sorry, bros.

The market has seen far worse times than this, enlightened traders are taking advantage of the dip and pumping even more towards trading sessions. My advice to new investors: More emphasis should be put into day trading as it is less affected by the unpredictable nature of the market. Trading went smooth for me as I was able to raise over 5 BTC when I started at 0.5 BTC in just 5 weeks of implementing trades with signals and insights from expert Oliver Kevin.>

Blame Matt Damon. I knew that ad had bad juju.

An ex-colleague convinced me into stock trading and investment as a means of making more income maybe because of the few commissions she earns bringing people. Sad i fell, My portfolio have been down ever since. Next time, i will first spend my money on myself before investing.
