    How many grandmaster chimes are you going to buy with your profits?

    I think on the 12th of April the update will allow staked eth to be unstaked. I know I’ve had some locked up for two years. It could cause a drop but I believe staking rewards will increase and we will have more flexibility. Kinda thinkin of letting a couple go though I haven’t seen it at this price for a while.

    I still have several ETH locked up. I'm curious to see how the price reacts, but I'll probably just keep holding for the long term.

    I prefer to invest in stuff that hurts if it falls on your foot, that leaves out all the crypto crap, but there are still plenty of true believers. Live long and prosper.

    One of my favorite Buffet sayings. (Although I think he was talking about railroads) but I just stuck with eth and btc these days and I started years back when it was kinda a Libertarian movement and to see what happened. I haven’t been negative since I went in but I “played it safe” as it was still relatively new on the scene had I gone a bit heavy I could having croissants in France but I guess the same could be said for getting into apple and others early and heavy. It’s really just for fun at this point I don’t regret the experiment I think I would have regretted not giving it a go back then but I don’t think I’ll be having a lambo with Bitcoin vanity plates if i do I will certainly post it.

    I am an XRP bag holder. I believe in the tech and have faith they will win the case Vs Goldman Gary.

    I see gold is performing nicely. Who knows how it will play out but nice to see it doing something. I got an offer for some 50 dollar liberty coins at a below spot price it sounded to good to be true, I dug a little and sure enough it was to good to be true

    If it wasn’t for the manipulation it would prob be at 5k or above an ounce but greed just gets at everything

    For sure, but I'm betting that *they* will lose control, and in the not too distant future.

    I believe it will go up. There are a lot of positives for BTC right now with the two main ones being the SEC awarding it commodity status and the 2024 halving just around the corner (long corner). I know I sound like a broken record on XRP but judge Torres has to rule that secondary sales were not securities as they satisfy zero prongs of the Howey test and once thats done there will be mass adoption in the corporate world. Once this happens I will dump 33% of my XRP bag into BTC but either way, I will do it before the 2024 halving.

    I've invested heavily in the Star Trek commemorative plates from the Franklin Mint, but I'm torn between the Captain Kirk and the Captain Picard editions. Have to figure out when the top of the market is and how much I can sell these for. I hate these complex investment decisions.
