taking a victory lap in this thread is hilarious, lol
Man listen… I was just like everybody else. When them stimmies first hit, I got caught up in the FOMO from the crypto coins and GameStop, bath and Bodywork’s meme stock shit. Made a cool couple hundred off it too. Used it mostly for gas/lunch. Even had a debit card straight from Robinhood.
I just caught on to the bullshit a lil bit quicker than most. It was new “coins” getting created every few weeks. Then the NFT shit started and a lot of it wasn’t making any sense.
Then ya boy Elon started hyping up Dogecoin, and even that bullshit started jumping. Talkin bout how y’all was gon be able to buy Teslas with Dogecoin. Which led me to believe that he had a bunch of it he wanted to sell and the rug pull was coming
And sure enough, after all his hype on twitter, and presumably after he got all his coins off, he went on SNL and dissed it, which immediately tanked the coin.
And that was the first sign to me that:
A) Elon was a fuck boy and a waste man.
B) this shit was too easily manipulated. So I cashed out what little my Dogecoins was worth, cashed out my bitcoins, cashed out my ethereums, cashed out my meme stocks and left it alone
And boy was that a good decision. It was all stimulus play money anyway, but I still didn’t wanna lose it.
Tried to warn niggas on my way out, too, but hey… some people just gotta bump they heads.
