I have a Robinhood account with some play money on there (another 2.7k or so) and was thinking about putting that into bitcoin. This isn’t my savings, but rather just stocks that I’ve been holding on and selling for a bit. If I sell everything tomorrow I’ll have taken an 11% profit since I opened the account in August. I’m not wanting to take the money out of RH and then reinvest it because then from what I understand I’m liable to be taxed on it since I’ve made a profit. Not 100% sure on that.

I know it’s not ideal, but how bad is it really to invest in BTC in the short term on RH? The endgame is not to have any crypto in RH obviously, but that’s almost 3k I can reallocate to BTC and ride the potential rocket tomorrow, even if it’s not really a BTC I’m investing in. I also understand that having to trade crypto during normal market hours is likely going to be a nightmare.

>> No.23829572

Early warning signs but nothing to be concerned about. they'll buy after it hits ATH. Don't forget niggers that it isn't a sell signal until everyone owns some or actually buys, and even then it's relegated to niggers and soiboys

Don't do it on RH, just bite the time bullet and set up a gemini account. I did my first crypto investing on RH when BTC was at 4K and it was the worst decision of my life. I tried selling and moving the FIAT into gemini to then go to binance to buy my linkies and by the time it did all that LINK was already over $1 and never went back down, effectively losing me 5k LINK while I couldn't do anything about it. Robinhood is fucking garbage for crypto and you WILL get fucked somehow for using it.

>> No.23830063

well if I remember right it took about a week for them to wait for the money to actually become "available" to transfer out of the account. Problem is during that week+ duration you'll be missing out on whatever pumping your positions will do so to mitigate that risk if I were you and had crypto positions I would wait until they pumped substantially and then try to move them. The trick behind RH is that the money is still there to be able to buy more so don't FOMO back into BTC if it pumps a bit. Just make sure when you sell off you do so at a price point you'd be satisfied with as if you were to actually sell it off.

I still remember how frustrating it was seeing LINK go from 40 cents to $1.20 while I was waiting on some kike to actually let me transfer my own money out of their system. Haven't touched RH since

I set up a Coinbase account for my 70 yr old mom about 10 days ago. She knew I was in crypto for awhile and I've told her of my success. I bought LINK at .35 roughly. She was insistent on BTC because she doesn't know any other but I got her in LINK around mid $10 and a little BTC under $15K. I'm going to convince her to do a 70/30 split. It wasn't tons of money. I told her no matter the price just wait at least 12 months. She understood and barely knows how to log in anyway. Lol Even with how well I was doing she didn't want to buy until she saw the Paypal news that pushed her.

That’s not because of what OP is implying but because argie economy is a literal hellhole that buttfucks everything in it.
On the other hand, people hearing about bitcoin isn’t a 2017-like sell signal but the start of the bull run. This isn’t people talking about bitcoin because it peaked, they are talking about it because institutions (eg banks and media) are putting the subject out there. Different scenarios.

It's fine because I'm also kind of a crypto retard - I literally don't understand how the shit works, defi, all the shit. Things will happen and the normies that don't know anything will be poorer and pooer.

They know what a 'bitcoin' is, or at least heard of it. But in the same way you'd say to "google" something, you just mean 'search for it'. Crypto has a hundred different coins/tokens and they all do different shit apparently, and it's beyond my grasp. But I invested in ETH, Link and XRP and made great gains (except in XRP, clearly).

Someone explained crypto in the following way to me.
>imagine you have an image on your phone/computer/etc. That data/code is on your phone.
>imagine you send that photo to someone else. But now the data/code does not live on your phone anymore.

Most regular people don't understand anything about money, currency, finance, etc. Hell, I just found out what the hell the Federal Reserve was 5 years ago, and I'm in my mid-thirties. They keep the masses ignorant to what shit is about. They literally think Jeff Bezos has billions of dollars in his bank account. The concept of 'wealth' is beyond their grasp.
Random rant I know.
