Cryptocurrency Investing

I Bought Some Crypto!

I’m definitely more of an old-school guy. I’ve only been on Instagram for a few years and I really only started watching YouTube videos consistently because of the pandemic! Back when I was younger, Exchange-traded funds (ETF’s) were the new thing – now, of course, everyone invests in them. For the past few years, I’ve read about Bitcoin and Alt-coins and have been very curious (but nervous) about dipping my feet in the crypto-pond.


Finally, a few months ago, I took the plunge and bought some!

I know I am late to the game but specifically, I bought some ADA (Cardano) and Ethereum. Not much, mind you, but enough to ensure that I watch the news closely and that the news actually means something and hits home.

Reading about something and owning something are two entirely different things. Until you actually own a piece of an investment, you won’t learn about it. I am all about taking action and I felt the only to learn about crypto was by doing (and owning) and here I am!

I purchased some of my coins on and I’ve also slowly started learning about the types of wallets (web, software, hardware, etc.) but obviously, still have much to learn.


I have a strong feeling about Bitcoin and some of these other coins – I have a suspicion they are here stay. I know the pandemic may have artificially increased their values somewhat, but based on my experience, I think there is something more going on here. There are going to be plenty of Dogecoin situations, but if a coin is useful in business and commerce, then it may stick around.

Do you own any crypto? What do you think it will do in the next few years? (And … is Dogecoin done?)

I will keep you posted on my thoughts in the coming months.
