    Welcome to The Cryptocurrency Thread

    Please use this thread for any discussion relating to cryptocurrency.

    If you own any cryptocurrency make sure never to reveal your private key or give out any personal information on this thread or via PMs. Keep your cryptocurrency safe!



    Have no idea what cryptocurrency is and would like to find out more? Here are some basic questions to get you started.

    What is cryptocurrency?
    https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/cryptocurrency.asp

    What is bitcoin?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

    Bitcoin whitepaper
    https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

    What is "the blockchain"?
    https://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/blockchain.asp

    Where can I buy cryptocurrency?
    From a trusted regulated exchange such as Coinbase and you'll have to be 18 years old and supply documents to verify your identity.

    Is cryptocurrency investing safe?
    Cryptocurrency is highly speculative and extremely volatile and you may lose your entire investment so never invest more than you're willing to lose.

    How can I see what the prices are of all the different coins?
    You can see the prices at https://coinmarketcap.com

    Is cryptocurrency legal?
    Cryptocurrency is legal in almost every country.

    Isn't cryptocurrency used mostly by criminals?
    No! When cryptocurrency was first invented it was mostly used by criminals but now it's used by large and small businesses around the world.

    Can I ask for investment advice?
    I highly recommend not asking for investment advice on which coin to buy etc because we're not professionals and you may lose your entire investment.

    Can I post my referral link?
    No, referral links are not allowed


    If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask away

    I didn't even see it before I locked it but to reply to your previous post. Yes Ripple was stupidly overpriced and pumped, it needed to come way back down.

    Bibox is owned by Binance I'm pretty sure because my deposit was transferred to Binance's big wallet. And yes I own some HPB through Bibox.

    "Official" as in this is the primary thread for all posts as cryptocurrency is becoming more and more popular we're seeing more and more questions about it so having one general purpose thread is better.

    Throwing money away on fixed odds betting terminals is also extremely popular yet we don't have an official thread promoting that?

    Cryptocurrency is gambling at this stage, not investing.

    How is it a gamble when huge companies and governments are adopting crypto?
