The problem for me in cases like this is who exactly is involved in the hack, did employees also took advantage of the mess to help themselves, etc ...

If my assets are not insured by the government or a large well known insurance company (worst case), I am staying far, far away...

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

Yeah it's a good point, but then we are not comparing apples. Btw, if the **** does hit the fan, govt and insurance promises will be worthless. I'm sure you understand this though.

I do, but I don't think crypto or gold are the solution, you'll need few good friends, medicine, water, food, guns + lots of ammo and not necessarily in that order :-)

There's a news ticker on the cnbc interview...BTC 20% down from the high. What they fail to report is that this money is just moving around the crypto market. Market cap is still rising. Now stands @ $640,605,570,765

I also wish I had the few winning numbers for the Powerball, especially when the jackpot is above half a billion - this is the best return of investment for me, bar none...
