None, crypto is a gamble. Unless you're an underground criminal, there's no good reason to have crypto.

Guns, wrongthought media (books, videos, podcast subscriptions, etc.), food from vendors without vaccine passports, and equipment for growing your own food are all likely to become illegal. If any of that matters to you, why wait until after the bans to get your wallet?

(If you're unsure if it matters to you, remember that CC is a wrongthink hotbed.)

Switzerland has had 0 mass shootings and managed to remain neutral during 2 world wars. It also has less stabbings than the UK yet guns are legal. Just because the US sucks doesn't mean guns suck.

You do realise that it's so Switzerland could sell arms to both sides with limited spending? Their country is all money.

If the weak can't rely on the strong, then they need tools to make them bigger. But as long as a non-lethal alternative exists then the job of killing should be left to the professionals

None of this is due to gun laws. There is not even a proven minor effect from it.

You are mentally castrated and insist on having what little power a normal person could get taken away. Self-defence is not even valid in most countries either. I don't know why you support your own slavery. You will take whatever nonsense is imposed on you and rationalise it as good or needed too. Mentally castrated by the state and media.

Good call there.

You can do swaps essentially like Uniswap but with 5-10c fees.
A lot of people are moving there early to avoid gas bs

crypto strikes me as a scam tbh. I hang around /biz/ to collect pink wojaks and see what those asshats are buying. 99% of the time, a new crypto just came out and it rises, then it's bagholder city until a new thing rolls around and garners interest.

Honestly think it's less to do with guns and more to do with american culture, which unfortunately is very pervasive across the globe now.
Think about how many more serial killers the US have had too. With or without guns there is just something quite wrong with the place.

I prefer to invest in index funds and just play the long game. I've thought about getting into crypto but as a concept I can't agree it's something with any value. At least stocks have capital and labor behind them. Crypto doesn't really have anything other than what other people invest in it and that seems too shaky to me, even for long term.

Anonymous 88093

>>87950
But if you're planning on investing for a long time you have way better growth potential on cryptos tho. Just stick to BTC and ETH and don't fall for the rest and wait until some billionaire like Elon Musk makes idiots balloon the price of crypto again. Whats the point of investing money on super safe but getting 1% growth a month if you're lucky. Just take some risks while you're young. I say.

But why? The reason that (some) stocks continuously go up is because the underlying companies are more valuable as they continually expand, invent new technology, reach more customers, and ultimately make more money. Crypto is expected to go up over the long term because…? The only crypto I am aware of that has a current concrete use case is Monero, because it replaced BTC as the avenue to buy illegal shit.

Anonymous 88544

Because crypto currency is not a stock, but a currency. It sounds like you have no experience trading currencies, is this correct? Let's forget crypto for a moment, do you have any idea why the yen has this much value compared to the US dollar at such and such time, but not at such and such other time.

Anonymous 88546

>>88093
When you invest in crypto you do not invest with a growth mindset, you invest with a speculative mindset. These are not the same thing, and if you treat them as the same you can absolutely destroy your portfolio.

Why is the won worth so little to USD as compared to the yen anyways?

Anonymous 88555

>>88550
The won, dollar and yen are all fiat currencies. That means they are backed by literally nothing, but the government behind them. What does that mean? That requires an entire book on the subject. Instead, the most brutal and simplest answer I can give is that the money has value depending on how much you believe a government assets (including the economy of the nation) will continue to do well. Again, this definition is very poor and broad, it only captures the bare nuance. Fiat currency only has value because everyone operating in that nations economy agrees it has value, if everyone tomorrow decided that dollars didn't have value, then you could burn all those 100$ bills you have because they're basically useless. The case then becomes that currency trading is trading the alleged agreed upon value of own nations currency amongst it's people with that of the alleged agreed upon value of the other nations value. Again, I am cutting a lot out, and there's a lot of problems others can call me out on, but I simply don't care to write a novel.

Let's restate then, real world currencies only have value because a government is backing it, and enough people agree that the money the government is backing has value. i.e. fiat currencies only have value because enough people believe it has value. Why does crypto-currency have value? Because the crypto is backed by whatever blockchain and enough people believe that whatever blockchain has value. Are you seeing similarities here? Now whether people should actually see any value in cryptocurrency is a completely different question, but when currency speculating, we only care about what they actually think, and a lot of fucking billionaires and millionaires think these things are valuable.

Anonymous 88605

The yen is backed by the full faith and credit of the Japanese Government, with the expectation that the government will honor your ability to convert it at a reasonable rate into goods and services. Currencies rise and fall as those expectations change. Bitcoin has value because people believe it has value, fair enough. But I'd rather have that value protected by a government rather than memes and Elon Musk.

I got into crypto in 2016-2017. The ones that blew up the most are TRX and of course LINK (got in at 23 cents.) I've got some NEO and OMG and some random small hodlings. Haven't worked since, staking gains cover all of my expenses. It's so beautiful to have escaped wagecuckery…
