It took me a long time to wrap my mind around the concept of cryptocurrencies and, even though my understanding has increased greatly, I’m still an idiot who bought crypto a year ago. I didn’t lose a lot, but I wasn’t profitable. Since the FTX collapse started, I’ve been buying on my preferred exchange and transferring it to my wallet.
HERE IS THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO TELL YOUR FUCKING UNCLE WHO IS ABSOLUTELY GOING TO WEAR HIS FAVORITE 1776-WE-THE-PEOPLE shirt: You can buy silver and gold through bullion exchanges at a better discount than using a debit/credit card. There are multiple dealers online that accept multiple forms of crypto: BTC, ETH, stable coins, etc., including DOGE (to my surprise). You don’t need to go into how the fraudulent activities of FTX and associates is the PERFECT example for why decentralized currency is the only logical path into the future. You don’t need to talk about volatility or rug-pulls/scams; you just tell them that you can buy more gold/silver with your DOGE than he can with his dollar.
So, when Uncle TERRY loudly says, “it isn’t real!” with his mouth full and elbows rattling the dishes, and “what can you even do with it?” Tell Uncle TERRY to shut the fuck up and learn the rest of the preamble before they put that stupid-ass shirt on, and to kindly pass the motherfucking gravy that he bought with his dumb-ass dollar backed by nothing. Make fun of him for buying silver and gold at high premiums, and, optionally, blow a cloud of marlboro-red smoke in his face as you put your cigarette out on the back of his neck until he cries into his greedy pile of stuffing. Bitch. Fuck you Uncle Terry. You don’t even know how to purchase SUPERPOOPDOGESHIB.

I mean, of course we shouldn’t be talking to families about crypto at the Thanksgiving table.
But also, anyone who thinks one year of results is conclusive proof of anything has totally missed the point. I’m bullish on crypto in the long term. I didn’t invest in crypto because I thought it would make me rich in one year. I invested in crypto because I thought it would make me rich when I’m old and grey.
I’ll gladly own up to and admit I was wrong if crypto is worth zero in the year 2060. But I refuse to hear any “I told you so”s now because I never claimed one year was the endgame.Thursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409800Zealousideal_Neck78
Too much offensive vulgarity.Thursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409799ProjectZeus
Why would you even want to discuss crypto over the dinner table with your family?
Encouraging family to invest in anything is a sure fire way to fall out with your family, one way or the other. Let alone something as volatile as crypto.Thursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409798Castr0-
You are brave to bring that conversation on thanksgiving dinner. normally that could ruin a good dinner.

Sounds like a comedy flair is neededThursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409783yourmom_fat_as_hippo
I don’t think my family, whom I shilled Ethereum at $4k last year, is going to listen to me why decentralization is the only logical way out.
Also, I can’t show my portfolio to them, because I don’t have any idea how I am going to explain them that $BigDickInu, $ElonCumsRocket and $the coin in my portfolio will be a next hit in the next bull run.
So, Nah. Better to be silentThursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409782Bucksaway03
Sounds easier to just not discuss crypto with peopleThursday, November 24th, 2022 at 10:22 #409781Intelligent_Page2732
The joke is on you, my family doesn’t wanna talk with me anymore after last Thanksgiving.
