I'll send you a PO box number.  You put all your currency in plain brown envelopes, send it to that address, and I'll crypto it and send it back to you.

 

J/K.  I have no idea how it works.

You got me there. :) I was seriously reading it though. ;)

Direct investment in cryptocurrency is when you buy it at the initial minimum cost and wait a couple of years to have a profit))) You are already late for this train, now the last cars are just being sent. But you can trade in a crypto-exchange if you have a lot of money to buy the first cryptocurrency package. Do you know what Forex is? Here it will be the same. With the same risks.

Many poor answers here, which makes me question the intelligence of those who responded. I have been doing my own research, and this is my take on cryptos:

Cryptos offer another way to store value. Like gold became the standard centuries ago, and bank notes are the standard today, cryptos could become the standard of the future. The front runner being Bitcoin, because of its early adoption and proven ability to work.

The most interesting thing about cryptos is how they could create a shift in power!

Have a look at this simple guide, and try to think of the political implications of a decentralized system of exchange: https://www.upfolio.com/ultimate-bitcoin-guide

Keep in mind that these cryptocurrencies are unregulated. No central bank to pass regulations to protect investors or the users of the respective currency. Do you really want to throw your money into something like that? You might as well be investing in a hedge fund in the 1920s.

YOu were right to ask people how it works to begin with, but I wouldn't start with a message board like this (despite the fact that I just answered you on it lol). Get a book on the subject.

Can anyone explain to me how Crypto Currency works? I'm planning to invest and I need some details before iI Invests.

Go on YouTube, there are some good videos explaining it in detail.  I put $2000 dollars into Ethereum back in May and have doubled my money.  Although the market is really volatile.  For instance, Ethereum was at $6000 dollars last week, and this week it went down to $5000.  Now it's back up to $5200.  It usually rebounds within a week or two.

Agreed. It's a Ponzi scheme.

But when it collapses (and it will) should the US Fed bail the people out?

Why should they? 

Isn't the Hallmark of Crypto that it's unregulated? This is why Elon Musk and pump and dump Cryptos at will. Even on Saturday Night Live. 

 

I've talked to people who are into crypto that have multiple layers are IRL security to ensure their crypto can't be stolen. Like a code on paper that only the owner has access to.

Elon Musk doesn't pump and dump crypto at will.  You're talking like somebody that doesn't know anything about crypto at all.

You also have no idea what crypto is and what's behind it.

Like tulips centuries ago, crypto/bitcoin etc is another bubble.

The tulip bubble was based on ships/spices.

This crypto bubble has a similar real base in the Internet.

The fact of the matter is that like tulip bulbs: NFTs and Bitcoin, people are buying nothing. Like in 1928.

The Blockchain is some wildly inefficient and energy intensive way of determining ownership. Whoopdee! 

A blockchain is a method to register transactions.

If transactions are costless, why hold Bitcoin or any zero-interest currency?

By the logic of blockchain, no one would hold any crypto-currency since (eg. Bitcoin) offers no interest while holding it.

===

By the logic of blockchain, the price of Bitcoin should have jumped and now be going down depending on its possibility of becoming a reserve currency.

BTW, Americans had various types of "bitcoins" between 1840 and 1910. It was complicated but it worked!

In Canada, we had one private Bitcoin until 1935.

IMHO, anyone buying a crypto-currency today is playing musical chairs - but when the music stops, there will be no chairs.
