No.

You should do a lot more research before putting any money into this whole thing - cryptocurrency is a rather deep rabbit hole. And very risky.

Glad I got in early enough. I've since withdrawn double my investment, and the remainder is growing rather quickly. Could be gone tomorrow, though; who knows when the bubble will burst (or if).

Coinbase (GDAX is their trading platform, but that's not my thing, I've just been holding for longer term gains) & I use a Ledger Nano S for a wallet.

Here's a nice little vid:

And, as the blockchains proliferate.

Bitcoin: Does it really use more electricity than Ireland? http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-42265728

and

Waterloo-based messaging app Kik is delaying the release of its cryptocurrency Kin and moving it off the Ethereum platform, thanks to a digital cat-trading craze that's clogging up transactions on the network. http://business.financialpost.com/techn ... -cat-craze
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice.

I'm currently working my way up with VTC, VertCoin. It's only at $7.50 right now and has a very active community and active developers... it could easily go to $40 in a month, or more.

Research Research, this is definitely for people that understand internet security. Lots of people think that Bitcoin etc are unsafe because hackers etc... when the problem is the broken internet we use. It was built broken, and then just added onto from there... we need internet 2.0.

Can you tell me more about VTC Stumpy?

Are you mining or trading? what exchange are you using? Why do you think VTC is different from any of the others.

I picked up some XRP but had to use a US exchange as can not find one for CDN funding.
