Why you should not trade crypto

Full Disclosure: The Author [Richard Ronc] has no cryptocurrency holdings.

Have you ever been in a car with a lunatic who just kept doing stupid ****? Have you ever seen that crash coming and simply frozen as all of the events have simply unfolded around you? Have you ever been in a situation so unstable and so out of control that if you turn away for a single moment you know that you’re in trouble?
