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.

I’m sure I’ve skim read a couple of articles recently where gubberments are taking a serious look at blockchain for reducing voter fraud. And there was another article where blockchain was proposed for other social interactions, I shall go seeking those articles again.

. . . Aye, for every article highlighting the teething problems associated with cryptos, there's another that demonstrates that major companies are starting to take the space very seriously. This link is the article about Kraken: Ripple and MoneyGram Test XRP Currency Transfers. The freight train is steadily building up speed Quantt - how long will you remain standing in front of it?

I know that headline is trying to imply that Bitcoin is so bad and dangerous that its irrationally causing people to get into debt but that's just the same for any trading/gambling. People max out credit cards and lose their houses on sports betting/trading/poker/snail races, so that's not really specific to Bitcoin.

You are right, except in a situation like this, a lot more people do it to chase the bubble compared to the other gambling alternatives...
