    I don't care WHAT people do with their money, and they'd better not care about me or my vast wealth.

    Oh, Geeze. I talk to everybody.

    Even talked to a real life social justice warrior tonight.

I asked if he was gutted, but he had taken the profit and bought various other shares... Tesla, GW Pharmaceuticals, Japanese Bonds and a few other crypto currencies.

    He is an intelligent bloke and has been following this sort of thing for years. The reason he was happy was he had checked his portfolio and there was over half a million Euro's in his account.

    I bought into a currency called Ripple. he reckoned they were gonna go up a fair bit, so bought 1000GBP worth. They have since gone up 4 times in a month. He bought his at 0.22 cents, it was around 60 when i bought. I spoke to him the other week and he was overjoyed as his portfolio was worth over a million when ripple his around 2.80 cents. it is now around 1.60 Euros.

    I believe Ripple will go up in price but not by Bitcoin standards but I had a gamble with a bit of cash I had. I wouldn't be putting anything into Crypto currencies that I couldn't afford to lose.

    Well lol. As I had mentioned previously, my understanding of the benefits of bitcoin was that it was unhackable. Who'da thunk?

    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
