My phone recommended this article earlier and since I am trying to learn as much as I can about Bitcoin I read it. If you're interested at all in all the hype Bitcoin is getting then here's a good article to check out. It's a pretty quick read.
The cryptocurrency markets dipped below $170 billion on Monday, with traders expressing tepidity about a potential Japanese initial coin offering ban.

I've got a buddy of mine at work that seems to be doing pretty well timing the market on bitcoin as to when to buy and sell. He's currently in the buy phase. I wish him luck with his investments; I just don't have the time to read charts, graphs and other data to determine what investments to make. I just buy and hold index funds and target date mutual funds, and I seem to be doing pretty well.

@andriaperry Since we emerged from the Great Recession, my investments have averaged just under 12% annualized returns, which actually beats the market as a whole. I've gotten really lucky (or is it skill?) with the index and mutual funds I've chosen. I also diversify, which helps when one segment of the market is down. I've been investing heavily in international funds this year, which are currently making a killing (I'm already up 18% for the year). I will probably rebalance my portfolio soon since right now I am heavily weighted in international funds.

Although I am good with money, I will leave this to the experts. However I may call one of the experts I know and get his opinion.

I believe I am good in money too, or should I say in ADDITION & SUBTRACTION and I love to learn NEW things so I started exploring CryptoCurrency 2 years ago. I buy/sell CryptoCurrency (Bitcoin and Altcoins) worth $2 to $10 only (what I can afford to lose).

Some countries do not support CryptoCurrency. I have not checked your profile but if you are in the USA, you can create account with Coinbase.com. N the Philippines I use coins.ph. Malaysia has coins.my. I heard Nepal does not support CryptoCurrency so it is illegal there.

I don't know bitcoins quite well. Its price increase a lot in a short time, but it is also very risky.

Not if you earn them using games and faucets. Then there is the same amount of risk as using swagbucks or myLot. Which is to say that there isn't that big of one

I first learned about Bitcoin at bitLanders. It was the main reason why I joined the site. I heard about bitLanders as a blogging site that pays in Bitcoin and got curious about what and how Bitcoin works. I joined 2015 and earned 3 plus BTC. But bitLanders switched to PayPal and Payza payments last year. Payza has a Bitcoin Wallet now and it is the only option for Paskitani members because PayPal is not available in Pakistan. If I only kept my 3 plus BTC I have more $$$ by now.

Was watching the price of bitcoin versus my local currency and it was losing ground, not significant but enough to cause a mild panic attack here in the office. Last I checked it has gone up but not to its previous level. Bitcoin breaks into the $6,000 mark and stays there for a good time before it settles down to the $5,000 mark again.
