I know this is a topic people either love or hate, however cannot find a specific category for this. Maybe I’m late to the game, and this whole crypto talk has fizzled out by now. But, if there IS a place that has some good threads talking about this I would be very grateful if someone could point me in the right to direction to them!

Thanks!

Bitcoiners?

They want you to buy it, so they can jump out with your profits.

The whole pyramid scheme is to influence new buyers, then
sell when the stock goes up.

Pretty scummy way of making money without producing anything.

So I’m guessing the general consensus here at ats is that this crypto business is not a great thing. I just wish I could find some kind of thread with information, positive or negative. I’d just like to get a better understand of it from my fellow conspiracy peeps.

That's the consensus among people who don't know anything about crypto.




I just wish I could find some kind of thread with information, positive or negative.


There are a few:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Both of those are my threads and still active.

There is also my Machine Economy threads that provide a lot of information about crypto throughout its' pages:

Machine Economy vs. Universal Basic Income

The Machine Economy: An Essay on The Communication of Value in an Automated Economy

The Machine Economy Vs. The UBI: The Machine Economy is Winning

Is this based on all of your non-experience?

ProjectVxn has authored a few as shown above. Best bet is Reddit. In particular each coins reddit page or telegram/discord channel.

I'm diving into the deep end of crypto.

Reddit might be a better place to start.

Sometimes I get ahead of myself.

Yea I wanted to get into bit coin when I had some money to spend, but it always seemed a bit sketchy to invest in it... Soooo many people looking to rip off others.

This is why it is important to do actual research into these things before parting with your money.

People not knowing how to use a technology does not mean the technology is bad. It means they need more education.

Remember this:

If you don't hold your keys, it's not your crypto.

Repeat after me; if you don't hold your keys, it's not your crypto.

As with any investment of your money. Do not invest what you aren't afraid to lose.

With that being said. People are making money with crypto still. Bitcoin is still worth 4k each.

bitcointalk.org... is a good place to go and ask questions.

Thank you guys so much for all the links and info! I’m def not a beginner, but nowhere NEAR knowledgeable. I have 100$ in it, kind of looking at it as sort of a fun thing. If I lose it, oh well it was fun while it lasted. I have the money in bitcoin, eth, ltc, and a few other so my money is spread out thin. But like I said, a lot of it is for fun. I don’t plan to trade a bunch like a lot of people do. Just have it and see where it goes. I also have some Apollo, which is extremely disliked, BUT that’s what I chose as my “underdog” so we shall see

And yes, I know McAfee is a looney tune and I’ve already researched him and have seen his documentary on Netflix that paints him as a horrid person. Lol but he is brilliant.

Again, thanks for all the info everyone!

Cryptographic private keys.

Go to YouTube and search for Andreas Antonopolous.

Watch his lectures on Bitcoin.
