I am educating myself in these matters & I find it all very interesting and fun. I decided the best way to learn was to buy in & then play around with it. Anyone else using Bitcoin/ Alt coins? For those who wonder wth I am talking about the cryptocurrencies are a decentralised way of having funds. No affiliations with banks or governments. The consumer is responsible for all trading and for storage/security. The markets are very mobile & can rise or fall quickly in a day. However the long term trend seems to show they are on the up & most likely the future of finance. There are videos with information out there & plenty of websites with info too. I like the idea of having a stash of digital currency that can be sent globally in a matter of seconds without having to wait for bank opening times etc. or paying the silly banking fees.
