    Its pretty much the same thing if you stick to the large caps.

    Once you get down to the 20th and below in terms of market cap, its like penny stocks.

    Volatility is a big issue, also no circuit breakers and nobody is going to shut down the exchange during a crash to prevent panic selling.

    It's mostly the same, I stopped investing in stocks and focused on crypto when ICO became hot. The volatile market, but this is just my personal opinion, I think you can study stocks more compared to crypto. I mean if you invest in companies that are well known you would know personally if they are doing well. There are also other ways like patterns, etc that are or not that I am aware of, available, or used on crypto. I just recently got back into stocks after I found out about BTCS and now I invest in both crypto and stocks.

    Agreed. Seems much the same just much more volatile than the average stock. and the future much more uncertain.

    Looking into crypto is good, it diversifies my portfolio combining different stocks and cryptocurrencies.

    I am going to diversify my crypto holdings a bit on Monday. Putting a small amount into ETH and maybe some titty bills into a couple other small ones.

    What is the problem? It is hard to trade in the crypto market. The approach is different between crypto and trading apps, the same as the volatile market. Moreover, crypto has another primary purpose of the coin itself. The prices are volatile, it changes at any moment, so in such cases, you can lose a large amount of money. It's hard for them to use their trading strategies in crypto. For example, I tried to invest in crypto, but it's too risky for me. Now I invest in trading apps like Robinhood. I feel much safer, I invest a little, and it's more comfortable and trustworthy to make trading decisions. This is cause I don't invest in crypto assets anymore.

    I view it as another asset to hold - similar to real estate, bonds, equities, etc. - As long as you understand the risks then I think you should hold a bit as part of an overall diversified investment portfolio

    The younger generation are quick to adopt new assets which dont fit the old standards

    I was just saying in another thread how Warren Buffett did not like internet stocks because they were new and weird back in the late 90's.

    In that particular case he was not wrong because there was the dotcom bubble which burst, and he picked up some good deals when that happened.

    In my honest opinion, the investing mindset can keep investors in the right position to buy crypto assets without falling in the typical trading issues. Investors (despite the traders) have the long-term view, which makes possible to buy an asset with so high volatility and decide to hold it in the portfolio for lots of months, not to sell during sudden boost and buy during the worst period.

    I have crypto assets in my portfolio, they consist in the 10% of the entire invested amount.
    On the crypto portfolio I set a Dollar Cost Average monthly method.

    Probably stated elsewhere, but crypto doesn't really adhere to same laws of gravity as stocks. There are no proven correlations to tie your technical analysis to and fundamentals are ephemeral at best. nevertheless, crypto offers many exciting opportunities and has generated staggering returns for many small time investors.

    The best way is to get your feet wet without drowning. Getting free crypto is a great start through airdrops (altcoins, usually). Getting in early on ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings, similar IPOs) is another good way to obtain coins cheaply that might appreciate significantly.

    the biggest difference is crypto technically has no intrinsic value, compared to stocks
