Hey guys,

With recent talk about cryptocurrencies, I wanted to push myself to create this thread and try to share some things that I've learned so far about cryptocurrencies.

I intend to share a lot in the thread. Please "follow" to be updated when I post...

Mike

Hey BigMike loong time follower but not much of a contributor but thought I can add snippets/gotchas on crypto cash things - not sure if this is the right thread or there is a general Crypto trading thread where people can share whether it is trading, buying, wallets, staking including diff altcoins - thanks

For general talk, feel free to use this thread. Detailed topics like choosing a wallet(s) might be better served in their own dedicated threads.

But yes, I look forward to more contributions in this area!

Also, I think one thread per (alt/shit/stable) coin is best, to organize it.

...Is there really a Crypto called Shitcoin?

If so, it seems that I'm really getting too old for this sh..

Does this qualify as a shitcoin? saw it browsing through the coinbase app while bored and it made me hungry.

On that news pancakeswap is trading lower today, big fan of French Toast though.

Joking aside glad to see @Big Mike adding crypto to the site. Even if I don't actually trade them they are very interesting to read about.
