We hear about Bitcoins and other Cryptos all the time… mainly from the ones that made a lot of money with them! As they are part of the investment world, here’s a guide to help investors understand what it is, what it is used for, the pros and cons, and Mike’s opinion and experience. If you’re a beginner in crypto, you’re at the right place!
- Cryptocurrency is digital money validated by computers all around the world. You can think about it as a chain of Legos. There’s no identity required to hold some… but that also means no protection.
- Bitcoin is probably the most popular or known crypto. But there are many others, like Ethereum. What are the differences, and which one seems more useful?

- How can we explain the hype around Bitcoin and other cryptos?
- Why does Mike hate Bitcoins but like crypto? Is there even a difference?
- Many investors are tempted to say that Bitcoin is the new gold. But past performances tell a different story. Mike explains why he doesn’t see a correlation and what he thinks is the place of cryptocurrency in our future.
