Should you or shouldn’t you buy the latest new cryptocurrency or token? I can’t tell you how many people have come up to me and asked if they should invest in bitcoin. I recently conducted an investor education program at a retirement community and a woman said to me,“My children keep telling me I need to hurry up and invest in bitcoin BTCUSD, -2.41% —is it safe, have I already missed the boat?”
Seniors are not the only ones interested in bitcoin and other cryptocurrency-related investments. Millennials are also jumping on the bandwagon. While I can’t give investment advice about bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency-related investment or product, I can provide advice on some things you should consider when deciding if an investment is right for you.
