I am late to the game. In fact I am kicking myself for not putting in $1,000 a few years ago with BitCoin as at $750. Today it topped $16,000 Well, There are a ton of new “Alt-Coins” hitting the market. Most are scams or doomed from the start. Yet there is definite potential. So, this morning I purchased a few bucks of BitCoin, LiteCoin and Ethereum . I set up my account through CoinBase. (Use this link and get $10 in your account free, after your first $100 transaction) It was much simpler there Kraken.com , although Kraken appears to have a better fee structure. It was only a small amount and I am entering this experiment figuring that it may all evaporate. It should be in interesting. Stay tuned. I’ll share my experience . There is a steep learning curve here.
