I dumped 2000 bucks into verge because it was on the superbowl, Rhianna made a song for it, and it was backed by a bunch of people in the music industry.

After it dumped I realized I invested into niggers and you should never trust nigger shills.

Everything I made day trading gone in about 2 minutes once verge released on Coinbase. Stupidest most rookie investing mistake I've ever made in my life and I tested my mettle trading commodities and ETFs. Spiraled into depression because I started to believe everything I earned was luck and not hard work and timing.

Tldr; literally never trust niggers. I'll invest in 10 pajeets before another monkey

Actually 3. Shit I really like buy and burn. Betting on infrastructure is beyond my technical abilities and seems like a crap shoot with the large number of platforms in existance (LIT, KMD, RFOX) but supply, demand, and scaricity; that I understand. And as long as the business is generating revenue, you have buy side pressure and scarcity increase. How does that not translate to capital gains in a bull run?

I was all in Litecoin for months and sold it all at $58 in November a few days before it exploded. I sold it for ETP, and I was all in that. All throughout November and December I was holding ETP, waiting for it to pump but it never did. I missed all the gains of November 2017-January 2018 because I just so happened to be all in the one coin that did not budge. I was so focused on ETP and the community behind it that I lost sleep and didn't notice how much everything else pumped. I don't remember the insanity of December/January. I didn't pay it any attention.

Never all in one coin. Diversify.
