The Happy Accident of a Middle Aged Guy researching Cryptocurrency.
I think I just set a new high watermark for how much of a clueless middle aged white guy I truly am.
I've been researching the idea of putting some assets into Cryptocurrency as a hedge against what I think will be an upcoming market correction (my unverifyable "gut" is telling me a 40%-50% correction before the end of this year) and I have been seeing some very compelling discussions about crypto being a virtual version of other "hard assets". (i.e. it's the millennial version of "gold bugs")
So I look around and see articles saying that for the true completely inexperience novice (me in a nutshell) Coinbase is a good starting point, but with slightly higher fees. So I go to coinbase to take a look, figure I will create an account and look around. I click on log in and... wait... lastpass filled in an account name.
Turns out I have a coinbase account already...
Turns out I did experiment in the past (3/19)..
Turns out I bought $150 in BTC then... (thinking back I think it was the proceeds from a decent Poker night with some friends, which I had completely forgotten about)
Turns out I have around $2k in crypto already.
I'm an old.... who just found $2000 in the virtual couch cushions of the interwebs.
