Has anyone jumped on the HOGE bandwagon this week? It is seeing massive gains but is still only 0.00056 so you can get a lot of it for a little. I bought a few today (maybe too late). A friend put in $3000 last Wednesday and this morning it topped $121k

what wallet did you use?

BTC is nice, but ETH is outperforming this year. Having a really good run here lately for sure.

Yeah I only got into ETH recently, but my position is already up 100%. Pretty crazy.

I've been mining Eth since I got my 3090. My goal is to mine enough to recover the money I spent on the entire computer, but Eth will have to double by the end of the year to make that a reality.

Kids talked me into some Dogecoin after it peaked, but it looks like it's going up again and I'm in the black. I assume that one will pop at some point though. If it wasn't so complicated to buy, I might have bought a few years ago and I'd be a thousandaire today! (Now if I can just figure out how to sell it for when the time comes)

Watch for Elon Musks SNL appearance coming soon. That will effect Doge. I threw 100 bucks at it when it dropped back to 17ish cents and wish I had thrown more at it lol. Not trying to retire, just having some fun with it. God knows I've thrown $100 away on dumber sheet.

Does anyone else think crypto-currencies impact on the environment and extremely large use of natural recourses are problematic?

I bought in mid 2017 and up ~1.25K% atm.

I have some from about that time. Then in February, Coinbase sent an email that as part of the move to ETH2, you can get 7% APR to hold ETH. I sold my Bitcoin and moved it over to ETH.

Been a nice deal so far.

I don’t know enough about to say it’s definitely a problem - but it certainly looks like a problem.

Algorand is carbon neutral according to their literature. Anyway, it's not cryptos fault we've taken decades to figure out our energy supply is ruinous to the environment.

I am still on the wait list and they are down to 6%. Kicking myself for taking too long there.

Yeah I’m waitlist too. But it did prompt me to get more, so I’m down with it.

I was just a bit leary of putting it all somewhere I couldn't cash out. When I figured out coinbase is working on a way for you to cash out staked coins, it was a no brainer.

I just opened a coinbase account. I have to do a lot more research on the entirety of this. Some of these yearly gains are just so massive.
