Is cryptocurrency a way to get neetbux?

tomorrow i am gonna open up a bank account and invest my 2k savings into cryptocurrency and see how much i make

/biz/ seems to be making profits by investing in crypto-currency

http://boards.4channel.org/biz/

mostly every thread is about crypto currency

 No.236960

I would recommend index stocks instead (as i've heard crypto is a bubble waiting to burst), but don't buy high - buy low… I'm pretty sure crypto is high rn so better to wait for a crash.

> crypto is a bubble waiting to burst

that's only if you invest for the long term and you don't keep an eye on your investment

 No.236962

The halving is coming in May 2020, so you're at the right time to invest

Also stay away from /biz/ if you want to make money. There is a lot misinformation and tons of PnD coins that get posted there. The only worthwhile advice was to invest in Chainlink.

 No.236963

youd make more money just investing into yourself, ie buying equipment to make and sell stuff online. even fucking charcoal, stylized as bio-char, is sold for asstronomical amounts on hipster websites. people sell fucking round rocks. pine needles and cones. american middle-upper class succubi have an endless pocket full of money they are ready to throw at fucking anything

I don't think cryptocurrency investments count as NEETbux. It's like saying you're a NEET who's playing the stock markets or selling real estate or regularly participating in high stakes poker matches. The fact is if you're generating your own cash from even a passive activity like investing, you're self employed.
The classification of NEET in regards to those who receive money is only appropriate for welfare or disability recipients, those who live with parents, or with a trustfund.
I guess if you earned so much money from your initial investment that you never have to invest again then you're finally NEET but as long as those investments are active I refuse to share a label with you money makers.

I made $700k usd from crypto and guess what? you literally can't keep any of it while being unemployed or if you have less than a 100k a year a job

This shit was rigged from the start that even if you DO make it you need to spend it all in a few months which defeats the entire purpose of a comfy neet retirement.

You either basically hold it forever in your portfolio and get fucked or cash it out and get taxed 20-30% of your total sum yearly by the govt. So if I were to cash out the govt would take 210k of my 700k for no fucking reason or just send me to jail.

That isn't how it works. Not in the US, at least. You pay a capital gains tax on the crypto only once. You don't get taxed 30% every year if it just sits in your bank. It is called an income and capital gains tax for a reason. If you are a millionaire who earned $0 during the year you pay nothing in taxes. You will have to pay if the money is in a savings account and gains interest. Even then, it is just the interest that is taxed.

I really hope you haven't been giving the government 30% of your bank balance every year…

i cannot stress how much truth there is to this. chainlink wasn't designed by scammers, but was designed by people incompetent in tech.
the end purpose of its shill campaign (likely independent of the naive founders) however, is nothing more than scamming midwit neets out of their last bucks.

You don't need a bot to predict it. Some MIT guys did the same thing with spam. They noticed the general style of spam which successful stocks had each week then the moment they got the first spam they invested.

I made $20k on options, started trading again the friday before the wu flu crash. I started with $1350. Mostly I've made money with debit spreads on DOW. I mistook this company Dow inc for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, still trade it cause I find it predictable. I used to get $800+/mo autismbux but now I'm too rich for it. At the end of this month I will have between $3000 and $50,000. I mildly regret not quitting while ahead at $20k, but I've emotionally adapted to this and can handle losing it all. My stocks and options are worth only $9600 right now but I've had a few of these collapses right before multiplying my money. I'll probably get a job or start a business if I crash to $3k.
If I get at least $30k I'll probably buy some cheap land soon in Oregon or Idaho and ranch sheep and chickens. I've mentioned in the crawl thread I've bought a cheap old pickup and learned to drive.

Chainlink is literally a scam. If you hold it now you're going to be destroyed.

Unlike legitimate cryptocurrencies, the tokens were distributed entirely via scammery, see pic related. The point of cryptocurrency is decentralisation but the "Chainlink LTD" is now holding tokens worth almost a billion dollars. Even the token sale generated more money. It's just a cashgrab; you must be shitbrained to buy something with such a ridiculous method of distribution. The company can completely annihilate the price at any moment.

It is gambling on something that you know is ridiculously overpriced and technically unsound.

Caution: This thread is full of shills from /biz/ who have no interest in this site outside of shilling for their cryptocurrency of choice. They want to pump up the price by hyping it up on every site that lets them, FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) you into buying, sell, and leave you holding the bags.

Not only is crypto is a zero sum game, but the odds are AGAINST you as a small investor. The only people who have better than 50/50 odds are the whales, people who have very large shares of the market who have the ability to manipulate market prices. Everyone else is gambling with worse than 50/50 odds.

/biz/ has no shortage of people claiming to make shit loads of money on crypto, but most of them are larpers. Some lie just for replies, but some are far more sinister, and claim to make loads of money to artificially increase buyer confidence in crypto in order to make it easier to shill.

I don't give a fuck about shills from 4chan conning normalfags out of their money, but it legitimately enrages me seeing outsider biz shills who look at wizards as easy targets to exploit for their pump and dump schemes.

Hell, OP's post even directly links for 4chan's biz and several shills here have posted pepe and wojak memes (which have since been deleted) because the shills don't even know the rules, much less understand the culture of this site.

how can you bother even asking about it after seeing this pic?
It's the scammiest distribution of coins I have ever seen.
Real cryptocurrencies have things like mining, staking etc to fairly distribute the supply. Here you just have "Chainlink Ltd" with full control, making profit at every step, ready to collapse the price whenever they want.

I've been investing in crypto since 2017, have about 10k USD/28 Eth. /biz/ got me into it, I fell for some memecoins(buy X it's going to the moon!!!), but, none of those did anything at all, for months to years.

I can look back at charts and see coins that were hyped at the time gaining little or losing value.

As I spent less and less time on imageboards I realized just how much poison these places are. The only reason I stuck around was because it was familiar, I believed that people posting on wizchan/4chan were 'like me.'

That's why I still come back from time to time, and I'm shocked at the level of ignorance in every post. If you want good in your life, you can't just hope that money will solve your problems, you need to get the poison out of your system. Daily intake of imageboards is 90%+ poison, the 'quality content' are posts like mine, warning you away from indulging in vapid, uninformed content typed out by people who value death, complacency, and stagnation over anything good in life.

Wizchan fights to preserve a castle of despair. Never forget that. The real investment is in leaving here, and stop trying to find a magic bullet. 'Getting into crypto' won't save you, having a budget will.
