Which Crypto do you guys recommend?  How much to start out with? 5K?

There are literally hundreds of different crypto coins.  Probably best to stick with the most popular.

You can open an account for probably as little as $50.  I wouldn't "invest" more than you are willing to loose.

When it comes to crypto,  ethereaum,  bitcoin, and light coin are like the blue chip stocks. Doge coin is a little more risky but has more upside. 

I have my money in bitcoin and ethereum.  As with anything,  invest what you're willing to lose. Right now crypto has been hot ,who knows how long that lasts.

BTC and ETH--- NOT BITCOIN CASH or other BS ----------I suggest are must haves before anything else, then go from there. Example ADA cardano and DOT and LINK afterwards. If you want to take a chance after that look at vechain etc. All the ones I mentioned have working projects etc. NOT A financial advisor just been in the game since 2017 if you need to chat 732-841-2472

If you're not investing in crypto you're doing it wrong. Bitcoin and ethereum among the best. Look at the growth of those two alone over 10 years. 

They are becoming widely accepted.  They're used by PayPal, venmo,  etc.  It will certainly be part of the future.

Still, to me crypto has no substance and no value other that some people telling me: Crypto is the future!, the day crypto falls 'investors' will end up with nothing, as opposed to say investing in real estate (or any other tangible object market) if the bubble burst at least you might end up owning some run-down houses or an empty lot but at least is something, precious metals and other tangibles will never go away.

My 2 cents

These days, most anything financial can go belly up except for the government (sofar) or things approved and backed by the government.  Things NOT liked by the government may take a hit, but that would be many more things other than cryptocurrency.

With that in mind, invest accordingly.

My 2 cents

Most currencies have no real "substance" or "value".  They aren't backed by anything except the promise of the issueing country that they are indeed worth something.  The government of the issuing country controls the amount and relative worth of thee currency by printing more of it or taking it out of circulation.  The main allure of bitcoin / crypto is it takes that control out of the government's hand (unless it is outright banned by a country).  It also levels the worth of different currencies.  One bitcoin is worth one bitcoin no matter what country you are buying or selling something in.

I wouldn't by any means put a large chunk of my networth in it.  But then I wouldn't but a large chunk of my networth in one investment ever.  

if the bubble does burst in crypto, there will still be millions and millions of people who made money.  For every buyer there has to be a seller.  If you buy some and it doubles or triples and you sell the amount you orginally invested and let the rest "ride" then you wouldn't have lost anything at all.

It's not for everyone.  It is HIGHLY speculative.  But as others have pointed out, we are already at the point that you can complete transactions for a variety of different products and services in bitcoint / crypto.  It's no longer the future.  It's here.  It's happending NOW.  It's just a matter of if governments allow it to conitnue and compete with their fiat currencies and if it's popularity and use continues to be adopted by more and more users.

Correct i don't believe a crypto like bitcoin will replace the countries currency like the dollar etc. I will work along side it. Example el Salvador make bitcoin a legal currency along side its money not replacing it. Wall Street companies are placing billion dollar bets on bitcoin. Im sure those guys wouldn't invest a dime if they knew its got no staying power. Those guys know the inside baseball more than we ever will. Who knows but crypto is liquid enough to place a sell order in a millisecond if u ever need to get out back into fiat. Bitcoin is now 11 years old. If it had to go im sure it would be gone by now. Who knows but just casually keep an eye out you will see bitcoin atms and wall st adoption. I spend 100 dollars out on a good night easy. 100 into bitcoin certainly is worth the risk to me. But live n let live I say.

You mean like these Bitcoin ATMS?  I'm sure there are more but those are first two that came up for "bitcoin ATM New Jersey".

The Single State of the Earth already has plans of going after it as soon as they lock in the $600  1 cent money movement circumspection and establish their own electronic bartering system.

This is totally out of control. Regardless of what u choose to have or invest in. Who in their right mind would vote or approve that should be voted out of office.

    • Thanks. Refresher: Requiring Firearm Safety Training: S-2169/A-5030 (Weinberg/Reynolds-Jackson) would modernize firearm ID cards, as well as require completion of a firearm safety course in order to receive a permit to purchase a gun or receive a firearm ID card. Connecticut, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland and the District of Columbia all have laws requiring individuals to undergo safety training prior to being able to purchase. [How would this apply to existing FID holders? Definition of acceptable training? Conspicuously absent. Potential impacts on passing on firearms to your heirs.] Mandating Safe Storage of Firearms: Owning a firearm for protection in the home can present a substantial obstacle to safe firearm storage, with individuals often opting to keep weapons loaded and easily accessible. Last legislative session, the Assembly passed A-3696/S-2240 (Downey/Gopal) requiring firearm owners to store the firearm in a securely locked box or container; in a location where a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or to secure the firearm with a trigger lock.  Raising Minimum Age to Purchase Long Guns to 21: Under current law, a person 18 years of age and older may obtain a firearms purchaser identification card and a handgun purchaser is required to be at least 21 years old. The bill (A-1141/S-3605, Freiman/Cryan) increases from 18 to 21 the age at which a person is eligible to receive a firearms purchaser identification card used to purchase shotguns and rifles but would still allow for those at least 18 to possess a long gun for purposes of hunting; military drills; competition; target practice; training; or under the supervision of a parent or guardian.   Promoting Microstamping Technology: Microstamping technology provides law enforcement with the tools to quickly link firearm cartridge casings found at the scene of a crime to a specific firearm, without having to recover the firearm itself.  The technology essentially creates a “license plate” on cartridge casings to identify the gun that was used to shoot the ammunition.  Last legislative session, S-112/A-1098 (Weinberg/Downey) would require within a year that firearm manufacturers incorporate this technology into new handguns sold in New Jersey. [This worked so well in CA... IOW, no more new pistols for sale.] Establishing Electronic Ammunition Sales Recordkeeping: The State Commission of Investigation (SCI) issued a report in 2016 finding that straw purchases of ammunition were unchecked because firearm IDs lacked photo identification.  The SCI also found that sales records were often hand-written into log books — a problem for law enforcement, which should be able to consult an electronic database when it investigates questionable ammunition purchases.  A-1292/S-1481 (Greenwald/Weinberg) would require manufacturers or dealers of handgun ammunition to keep a detailed electronic record of ammunition sales, and report ammunition sales to the State Police. [Any talk of banning internet sales?] Banning .50 Caliber Firearms: Military-style .50 caliber rifles are banned or restricted in several other states. California has a complete ban on .50-caliber rifles, Connecticut bans specific models and Maryland has some restrictions.  S-103/A-1280 (Gill/Greenwald) would revise the definition of "destructive device" under New Jersey law so that it includes weapons of .50 caliber or greater. [It's about time. These things are used in what... zero crimes in this state annually?] I wouldn't be surprised if remaining evil features, others, and internet sales, among other things, get added to the list.
    • I dropped my Trenton Times subscription after the January 7th headline. Bought a paper last week on Thanksgiving for my wife... $8 and completely useless! Won't be doing that again.
    • The Gov referenced these initiatives back in April:  https://nj.gov/governor/news/news/562021/20210415b.shtml        
    • Holy crap! $60??!!!!!!!  I didn’t know they were that expensive.    I have an extended A2 type comp (not EGW) in my parts box, makes a 14.5” carbine 16.25”.  If you need it, it’s yours for the cost of postage. It looks like the one on the left in this pic.
