When I first heard of bitcoin around 2009, I set up a miner app and pulled in .25 BTC or something like that.
Of course, I forgot about it and got rid of that computer and the wallet that was on it.. That mistake is worth about $4000 now.
But I’ve been looking back into it over the past few months. when it hit $5000/ea BTC, I was really surprised.
It was only then when I started researching that I saw that there were more alternatives to just Bitcoin.
If Bitcoin is the internet equivilant to gold then Ethereum would be the USD that a lot of other coins are based on.
LTC or Litecoin would be silver.. but comparing these to base metals is rather redundant since there isn’t really a physical alternative to cryptocurrencies
It’s currently December 14th, 2017. I started buying Bitcoin, Litecoin and IOTA about a month ago. It’s basically doubled in value and I’ll hold onto it until February of 2018 to see where it is. But in the meantime, I’m going to list my favorite links to getting into Cryptocurrencies as investments below:
Coinbase – easiest place to purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin – but the fees are high
Binance – Currently seems to target Chinese nationalists but you can buy other coins here such as IOTA
Coinmarketcap – A good spot to start to see how many AltCoins are out there and do your research on them.
In the meantime, I have to get to work but I will try updating this blog more often with Cryptocurrency information
