How I lost all my BTC savings being greedy with futures trading.

I hope this post will be a big lesson for those who are in the same situation as i was, as well as I am seeking for any advice that could help me through this tough times. So back in 2014 I first learned about Bitcoin and I loved the idea of cryptocurrency so much, that in 3-4 years from learning about it when I became 18, I started investing and trading. As time went by I was investing small amounts, trading, and apparently slowly losing my money, but at that time it was ok because that were small amounts which I could afford to lose.

Because I even used a credit card to load it up. I hate myself, because I could just hodl. And know not having a proper job due to COVID, I have to survive somehow. This is how you learn a lesson the hard way, don’t repeat my mistakes, just hodl and you will be fine. Knowing that this community is huge, I would like...
